Shy Bear Santa Hat Saturday Spotlight

Hi All,

Well today is Sunday and I hope all had a very Happy Thanksgiving. I did and I still recuperating today. DH and mostly did nothing all day...of course a nothing day for me is no housework....doesn't include stamping so I had a chance to make a card for the Saturday Night Spotlight. I didn't have just a hat stamp so I used on of my Shy Bear...he's in a wreath and wearing a Santa Hat.

I decided to make a fence based on the TJ Tech Faux Painted Panel... only instead of cutting out the panels (which I do a lousy job at) I used my ScorePal to make lines, and use my Scallop SU punch to make the top of the fence. So of course I wanted the wreath to hang on it which meant I had to cut it out. Very time consuming with all the little leaves, but I managed to do it and not cut off one leaf. It was colored with Copic Markers and for the fur on the hat I applied Aileene's Glitter Snow. It didn't glitter as much as I wanted so I put a layer of Stickles Silver Ice.
It's hard to see the fence but since this is all about the hat...I will scan another picture with a background paper later on. Although I don't think it will show up that much either way.
This is such a cute image and I really like how the card came out!! Image is by Squigglefly Digital Stamps.
Well that is it for now hope you enjoyed my post and card as much as I enjoyed your stopping by!!
Hugs and Blessings,

Monochromatic Challenge

Hi All hope you had a Happy and Blessed Thanksgiving...I got to play a little in my craft room so I did this Monochromatic Card for a Challenge at Gingersnap Creations. It really looks better in real life but it has that sort of old look to it. I used shades of grey (very dark grey for brads) some might think they are black but it's still in the family right? LOL The card just had a blah look without them. Well time for me to start getting ready for bed so will post some more over the weekend! Opps the image is by Victorine Originals!!

Happy Turkey Day

Just want to wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving and may the Lord bless you all, may He watch over those of you who will be traveling to be with loved ones and see you safely to your destination and home again. May He also bestow many blessings upon each and everyone of you throughout the coming year!

And for a little I candy. I was truly blessed when this special lady asked me to be on her design team. I learned so much from her and my fellow DT members that year. I'm still learning from her through her website and her blog .

She is now also designing Digital images to add to her already marvelous rubber stamp collection. Here are a couple of her latest designs that inspired me to make these cards.
Probably will be busy over the next few days so have a wonderful Thanksgiving Everyone!!!

Blessings and Hugs,

Good Monday Morning

Hope all had a great weekend!!! There were so many Blog Hops this weekend and I didn't get a chance to visit any of them! Going to try to visit a few that are still going on this morning.
Today I think I will post two sets of ATC's that I did with those little clear $1.00 stamps from Michael's! They can be so much fun to play with.
These also were done with two Techniques from Technique Junkies, Alcohol Splash and Faux Sanded Gesso.
Well hope you all have a great stamping week and thanks again for stopping by!

Happy Evening All!

I've been trying to get to this post all here I sit waiting for midnight and Squigglefly's new releases!

But tonight my post is all about Victorine Originals and some great images that I have turned into cards.

Sit back relax and I hope you enjoy!!!

The ornament is a very simple image in it is only the outline. This just lets your creativity go crazy finding ways to fill it in. I probably would have kept going with this ornament but I had other images I wanted to post. Like the Poinsettia and the winter scene. Various techniques were used here including three from Technique Junkies
and they are the three ornaments.
The winter scene was brayered and touched up with Copic Markers and the Poinsettia was colored with Copic Markers.
Well hope you enjoyed my little show and thanks so much for stopping by!!! : )

Geisha Girl

Hi My Stamping Friends, Here is a card I did for the Saturday Night Spotlight.
This week is Repeatedly Useful where you had to use a stamp more than once. I used the SU Set KANJI and the Faux Paper Design from Technique Junkies. The idea was to use a stamp more than once so I used the love, wisdom, and tranquility. Making love my focal stamp. The Geisha Girl is from Squigglefly.
There's some beautiful card designs in there already! I'm just glad they let me play along with them!!
Have a good night all!

Been busy!

Hi All,

Just when I think it is safe to go in the water (LOL)stamp that is, my dh finds other things for me to do.

We are doing a major basement cleanup!! He put up three heavy duty shelving units to store all our stuff on. Now I have to repak all my boxes into the same size boxes...he's a little OCD too!!

So for the last two weeks I've been a dungeon dweller. He doesn't like the fact that people can look in the windows so he put coverings over them. That is why I call it the dungeon.

Let me see what I candy I can round up for you today. First off I want to show off a baby picture of me!! What cha think? Not too many pics of me at this age so this is treasured. My bio dad passed away when I was only 1. Tough time for my mom (she had three kids) but she was strong and a survivor. That's why there aren't too many pics of me until I was around 8 when she met my step-dad, who is really my dad...he raised me with a lot of love and you would never know he wasn't my bio dad. In fact people used to say I looked like him and we would just laugh and say thanks! Get a little sentimental when I have to go thru old pictures!
I think this is all I'll post for today a little insight into my life...tomorrow I will put up some more cards...I really need to see where I left off!!!
Have a great day....and remember stamp, stamp, stamp!!!
