TJ Technique Brick Wall -Gingersnaps G83 Polar Annimals

Good morning...Well running out of time for Christmas Cards so think I'll switch back to Birthday. Don't do New Years.
This is done with the Brick Wall Technique as seen in the last issue of Technique Junkies News letter.
Polar bear image is by Gingerloft and is a digital. This was to be my first in a series of cards this week (1st week of vacation) and I am sick in bed with a cold....I think my Christmas present from Santa every year is to have a cold and I have good been a good girl honest!!!
Well in case this is my last post before Christmas I want to wish you all a very Happy Christmas. Enjoy this time with friends and family and remember Jesus is the reason for the season.

bloggers challenge 182 Dec Sketch

Good Morning and Happy Friday....I have been trying to find time to do some of the new TJ techniques and can't wait til next week no home schooling, it's play time!!

The three small flowers are from the latest Technique Junkies Newsletter! What fun to make. I love to melt things...just ask my DH we haven't a spatula that is not melted somewhere either the end or the handle!! I have reshaped bowls,and every plastic utensils in our house, so this was right up my alley!!!

I used another TJ tech on the flowers before melting. It is called Alcohol Splash but instead of glossy paper I used acetate.

The large flower were some I had in my stash and I used two pop dots one on top of the other between layers.

Well hope you all enjoy and this was also a great sketch, thanks Lisa. Look forward as always to see what everyone else does!

The Bloggers Challenge 181 Birthday

Good Morning...for today's Birthday card I decided to do a winter theme. Sorry this didn't scan as well as I would have liked. The technique used here was Versamark Stencil. The large snowflake was done using a brass stencil and veramark with Antique Gold (by Ranger) embossing. Also the Happy Birthday. The rest of the snowflakes were done with the same stencil but using a sponge and gold ink.
Hope you all have a wonderful weekend and can't wait to see what everyone else has done.

The Cheerful Stamp Pad Challenge # 6

I told Vicki I would have a hard time picking just one card for this challenge! When I read what the theme was I knew I had two digi's that I was anxious to play with.
Both are by Elizabeth Dulemba and I fell I in love with them both so I had to post both of them. Elizabeth writes children's books and also illustrates them. If you would like to see some of her coloring pages go to she also tells all about her books.
I colored the images with Copic Markers added punched snowflakes to the night befor Christmas. Then to Santa I added two more digitals which I found on Free Digital Stamps also a great spot to pick up free digis.
Thanks again Vicki for another great challenge and for all of you who read my blog wouldn't you like to join in? I'm sure Vicki would love to have you! .
I really sound like an advertisement here but I just don't want anyone to miss out on some great sites!!!

Friday, December 3, 2010

Good Morning,
This is what I did for my ornament card. It really sparkles IRL and there are no spots just glitter. I had to use my camera as the scanner made the card look terrible!!!
The Snowflakes are some that I bought at Walmart in the Christmas section. I then took crepepaper and pleated around a white 1" circle. I then rubbed gold ink around the edges. Attached the Snowflakes and applied a pearl. Peace on Earth is from Inkdinkadoo Holiday set.
Thanks again for stopping by and have a wonderful and blessed weekend!

Bloggers Challenge 178

Good Morning,
Well it's Friday and that means another Bloggers Challenge. This Friday is Give Thanks...and I thought this time I'd do a Happy Thanksgiving, but a little more
on the traditional theme, to wish all my Blogger friends Happy Thanksgiving.
I love these shades of green it is one of my favorite colors. I mostly use the brighter greens at Christmas time.
No coloring here I didn't think it needed any. The image is by TLC Creations and the sentiment is computer generated.
So until next Friday I wish all you Bloggers a Happy Thanksgiving.
Happy Thanksgiving All and may your Blessings be Bountiful!

Squigglefly Challenge 75 sentiment

Okay so you said sentiment only but I just couldn't resist using the paw print digital paper too. They just go hope this is okay!
The digital paper is by Squigglefly as is the sentiment. You can find this challenge at Only stipulation is that that you use a Squigglefly how simple can that be. You could win a free image and spellbinders to but don't trust this rusty old brain go take a look!!! Bones are one of those mini punches. By the way the card is white hard to tell in the pic!
Thanks for stopping by and checking out my card.....

Give Thanks

I saw this picture on a Christian Clipart that I belong to and it just reminded me of my granddaughter Jessi when she was smaller. She's a little older now. I think she is eight going on thirty. They live in IL and she called me the other night to inform me she was making a quilt by hand!

I think this came out really cute as a card but I think I may take it a set further and make it into a picture.

Image uses the Out of the Box Tech which was published in Technique Junkies Newsletter. Colored with Copic and Flowers are from a Background Paper by Coreen Silke.

Thanks for stopping by... I will be back to play in the Bloggers Challenge this week...can't wait to see what everyone has done for the November theme. Me it's all about food!!! LOL Just kidding I have a lot to be thankful for...but as usual I think of Thanksgiving which makes me think of turkey which makes me think about food!

Bloggers Challenge 177

Hi Everyone...This was such a fun Image done by Elizabeth O Dulemba. She not only does illustrations but is also the author of children's books. She does coloring book size images. Check her out at a lot of her images have to do with reading.

Next I did Torn Frame, from Technique Junkies Newsletter and faux hand made paper as seen on Gingersnaps Creations I forgot who posted it but it is great, simple easy, and makes a cool background. Last but definitely not least is my new Janome Mini sewing machine. I got it when they had a big blow out sale. I must admit having made most of my clothes and children's when I was younger this is sure one little power house. I used to have to pull my huge Kenmore out when ever I wanted to use stitching on cards or do a repair....but no more!!! My granddaughter even made two pillows using this machine! As part of home schooling we do sewing and other crafts. Okay enough right? Do you think I like my new little machine!!! LOL

When ever I think about November I think Thanksgiving and then I think of the poor turkey!!! So I always try to find an image that shows his plight!! This one was perfect!

Bloggers challenge 174 and 175

Talk about being a little behind!!! First is my reuse...recycle I used a clock I disliked for the kitchen. Had DH cut it into a square. I saw one made with images of coffee and thought how perfect. Here is what I came up with. Squares are from Sunshine Artz and are called Daily Joy. They were perfect for what I wanted. Then came the cup not so easy..I was all over looking for a digital coffee cup and after many hours I found one. It was perfect as it was already the perfect color!!! Only thing I did was to attach the squares and hi light them in blue. Used all part from the clock.
Next is my Halloween I sent this card to two great friends. I'm not a Halloween person but for these special ladies I made an exception. Spider web is purple glitz as is the witches (gold) shoe buckles.. All digital images from various artists!!!
Also need to apologize for not responding to everyones work but this is the first time I've really been on here in over a week. I have all emails 400+ and will try to address them all tomorrow.

Bloggers Challenge 173 Black white and Orange

Very simple card today. Once more I needed a card for a man's birthday so this is what I came up with.

Image is by Victorine Originals and the orange was done with copic markers. I like the effect it has against the silhouette figure. It makes for a very easy card but with impact. Happy Birthday is computer generated.

Have a great weekend!!

Bloggers Challenge 172 October Sketch

I fell in love with this image which of course is another digital! This was listed this week on Freebie Digital Stamps Blog (this is a site that lists freebies everyday they hunt them down and then post them for us happy digi stampers. The stamp is by Beccy of I just loved all the miss-matched items which made it so much fun to color. My GD picked out the layout color combinations. She has a pretty good eye. Once again I used Copics to color the image.
Hope you enjoy my card and thank you for looking...can't wait to see what all you other bloggers come up with.

Bloggers Challenge 171 Anniversary

This weeks challenge was for an Anniversary Card....I'm not one for cherubs but these two just caught my eye and they are so adorable that I just had to use them for this challenge. They are a digital stamp by If you have never been there check it out...great freebies and awesome vintage digitals.

Next I used two TJ'S techniques one is Wisped Frame and the other I can't remember the name. I used UTE and froze it to give it a cracked look. Doesn't show in picture but it it really great. Colored with Copics. Used Martha Stewart paper punch for embellishments.

Have a wonderful weekend everyone and be blessed...I know I am. I will probably post my kitchen next week as it it really coming along...still a lot to do but it's at least past the embarrassment stage!!!

Bloggers Challenge 170

I made a B-Day card for my Dad today and just realized it would work for the bloggers challenge. I used paint chips for the background!!! I also used another one for the background of the words! So I guess this is a reuse.

Chef is from Bugaboo Digital Stamps colored with copics. Technique is Out of the Box from Technique Junkies Verse is my own. Inside it says "the chef didn't show up so you'll just have to eat my cooking."
Thanks for stopping by and even though I'm late posting I did it!!!

Bloggers Challenge 169

Well here it is Friday again...and another bloggers challenge is due...I did two this time because I needed a card for a young boy and think one was quite right. The first card is the one I sent to the teenager and inside it says after all it is your birthday.
The second one is from FCD and I just love this image. I actually glazed both the jar and candy apple and raised the candle up to give it a 3D look. It came out great I was afraid I would get a lot of bubbles especially with the jar but since switching to Inkssenditials Glossy Accents I have had very little problem with bubbles.
Both cards are colored with what else but Copics...gotta start playing with more mediums.
Thanks for stopping by it off to church now for prayer night!
many blessings to you all

Then I think red...

Monday Lunchtime Challenge 132

Okay let's see if I can do better this week. I had everyone confused including myself last week. I had the two challenges listed on this group mixed up...not once but at least two times.

This week I printed out the challenges and hung them above my crafting desk!!! This challenge is on Techno Stamper. I love this sketch and I hope you all like the card I came up with. To see original sketch go to

This card uses a Technique Junkie technique for the first layer. The second layer and image layer uses a free digital stamp. I wish I could remember by what company but when I first started collecting digitals I didn't realize the companies don't always list there names on them. I had accumulated quite a few. If anyone recognizes it please let me know and I will add it...I really want to give the artist credit.
The image was colored with watercolor crayons on watercolor paper. Flowers are a punch by All night media.
Thanks again for stopping by and have a wonderful week.

Today's Challenge

Today's challenge is a new one for me. I've been going to do this one for a long time but never seemed to time it right.

This one is a sketch challenge and it is brought to us by Techno Stamper (Mary Jo), this is my first time to play here. If you wish to see the original sketch you can find it here. .

The stamp is a digital from Digital Two for Tuesday and here is where you can find these digitals. they offer great freebies.
Background papers are by Deena's Penny Lane. Used TJ Whisped Frame (one of my favorites) on both image and flowered background. Technique Junkies can be found here. .

Well guess that's it have a great Tuesday and a blessed week!!!

Squigglefly Challenge 58

Hi Everyone,

I'm in the mood for challenges this week. This one is for Squigglefly Blooms Challenge #58. On TJ they had a tech called Whimsy Background where you highlighted, with white gel pen, around the image. This is a take off of that. The flowers were way too dull so the gel pen gave them some pick up!!!

The gladiola stamp is part of a set of flowers on Squigglefly, they have a beautiful daisy in the set too!!

Background technique is called Faux Handmade Paper it is really pretty IRL, it has a metallic gold shine to it.

That's it for tonight watch for tomorrow for another challenge. I am hoping to do one each day. So far I've done three and tomorrow's post will have my third card and what challenge it is. So join me again tomorrow!!

Gingersnap Challenge GC62 Markers

Hi Everyone,

Here is a cute image by Sylvie Ashton that I used for color with Markers, a challenge on Gingersnap Creations. This was a fun one to color. For the Flower I cut out a flower from the background then attached it to some card stock and curled the edges. The small flowers are made with the faux felt Technique from TJ Junkies. The Whisped frame is another Technique from TJ Junkies. I used pearls from Memory Box down the right side and on the small flowers I used Gold Pearls from Liquid Pearls. For the large flower used a small gold flower from my stash.
For the coloring I used Copic Markers. Background paper is from Hot of the Press, Paper Pizazz- Retro.
Thanks once again for stopping by and I really appreciate all the love you all have left on my previous card!!!

This weeks Challenge 19


This was made for another challenge for Sassy Cheryls. This weeks Challenge 19. I had to do a 4th of July card and I had started it when I saw this weeks challenge. It is a layout. What a cool layout too!! Check out Sassy Cheryls blog to see all the great artwork and of course check out her store .

This of course is another of Sassy Cheryl's digis. It is called Patriots Remembered. This is also for a swap for July with a dear friend and I have one more to make for another friend...I also got Cheryl's I Pledge Allegiance and I will post that one here when it is done. I want to do the same layout I think... ADD SECOND CARD 7/7/20

This one also was colored with Copic Markers...Love those markers...would love to own them all but the cost is out of I have learned to blend the colors I have.

Once again thanks for stopping by. Hope you all have a great and blessed week!!

Another Challenge

Good Morning,

Well this challenge is for Sassy Cheryl's and it is the very first I have done for her. She has the neatest stamps and I have a few...Although I never have done a challenge I have used her digital stamps several times. She is having a sale right now 20% off...I have to go shopping myself after I post this!!! This stamp is called Dance Partners..the saying I generated from the computer. I thought the saying was perfect...I did this as a card but now I'm thinking of framing it and using it in my craft room as a reminder!

The challenge was to use blue, peach and beige...beige came out a little darker but it goes so well with the peach because it has a pinkish tone. Colored with Copics and the punch I used is a Martha Stewart punch.
That's my story for today!!! Hope all you wonderful stampers have a great weekend and a stamping one!!!

Another Squigglefly Challenge #57

Hi all my wonderful Friends! This is another Squigglefly challenge and I couldn't resist because the image was supplied! What a cool image it is too.
I started out with some papers that I downloaded and they are all from the same color pallet. These papers were free and Coreen Silke designed them. So I just sort of tried different papers.
The technique for this I got from Technique Junkies and it is called Paper Piecing. On the bottom I used the pinking shears to make the papers look a little like grass!! The top (striped is layered) I used the Fiskars rope punch which I picked up at Joann's for 60% off!! Such a deal.
It really is much prettier IRL as it is not so muted as the scanner made it. I really must let my son fix my computer as it is not running 100% but the thought of being without it for a few days is terrifying me!! LOL
Thanks again for stopping by hope you will enjoy this card I really had fun making it this, I know because I have papers all over the place cuttings all over the floor, when it's messy like this I know I had fun!!!!

Squigglefly Challenge # 54

Hi All,

For Squigglefly challenge # 54 adding yellow. The background yellow is the same as the saying scanners have a mind of there own!! LOL

I fell in love with this image the minute I saw it!!! Brought back memories of my grandparents summer home in West port! I spent some of my summer vacation down there with my Grandmother and there were such good memories of Horsneck Beach. Well enough down memory lane....

Great image for the first day of Summer!!! Hope you all enjoy...Cant really tell but the image is raised up as is the top shell. The Gazebo by the Sea is a Squigglefly image and the shells are by Lindsay Stamp Stuff. Coloring Copic markers and say computer generated.

Thanks once again for visiting hope to post later this week again.

MAI Again

Here are some cards that I did this past week I have a few others but they will have to wait until next week because they are off to some very special people.

May was a tough month for me.. A lot of personal stuff I need to come to grips with. I am so thankful that I am a Christian because I know everything works out for the best...then my mojo went on vacation...have my wonderful granddaughter here 5 times a week home schooling. She was way behind when I took over and she will now be done I think by the end of June...maybe even before!! I have loved every minute with her but it sure does cut into my craft time. Math at a 7th grade level sure isn't like balancing my check book!!! LOL I'm getting a crash course myself.

Anyway hope you like my latest creations...all have been done with digital stamps (except the flower that is SU.) The young girl is a Firecracker Designs by Pamela, next is a beautiful scene done in water color crayons and that is by Lindsay's Stamp Stuff, the tile which made a beautiful bandanna technique, is unknown, flower I mentioned, and the last one is the most beautiful woman by Sylvie Ashton!!! All are Technique Junkie techniques.

Well thank for putting up with my lengthy post, wanted to let you all know whats been up and say

it sure is good to be back!!!

Blessings to all!!!

Good Morning

This is such a beautiful technique. Washed Watercolors. The green and yellow, though you can't really see it ,was spread on using iridescent medium. It gave it a really shimmery look.
The technique is quite simple using watercolor paper and watercolor paints. Take your watercolor paper spritz it with water, then with a paintbrush add watercolor paints....spritz again and lift paper so that the colors will run. Reminds me a little of water color roll but comes out more vibrant. This is a technique from Technique Junkies as you know one of my favorite web sites.
All flowers are from Squigglefly Digital Stamps and are part of their flower set...I love flowers so of course I had to have it! The Butterfly is from Firecracker Designs by Pamela...and is also part of a set called Let Your Soul Fly. This was part of the main image so I used Photoshop 7 to capture it.
Wishing you all a happy weekend...may God bless you each and everyday!

Flowers for my Friends

Good Saturday Morning,
I thought this card was appropriate for this week except I got up this morning and it is freezing again. No Rain today though. The past week was absolutely like Spring again and I have been busy running around and enjoying it. I have to apologize to Belinda for not posting this on Monday...I have had some health issues and completely forgot to post. All is well in Judyland and I am blessed with so many friends and family. I especially want to thank my sons John and Jeff and my husband Milt for their never ending patience with me. For my friends this basket of flowers are for you and Happy Spring all. God is so good. This bunny is so cute with his huge eyes, you can almost see the smile on his face. This is from Belinda's Digital set Hop into Spring. You can get to her web site by clicking on the title. This was colored with copic markers and though the flowers look blue they are a pretty shade of purple.

Thanks for stopping by and as always I appreciate you all so much God has blessed me abundantly with many wonderful people in my life.

Firecracker Designs by Pamela

Here is a card I did using one of Firecracker Designs by Pamela new digital images. I also used FCD's layout. The butterflies on the side are taken from the digital design using Photoshop 7. The background is another Watercolor roll Technique found in the Technique Junkies Newsletter. Papers are from my stash.

Have a great weekend everyone and I will be working on some cards this weekend. Again Happy Easter to all my Christian friends and Happy Passover to all my Jewish friends. May God bless each and everyone of you!

Prayers Needed

Hi everyone,

This is just another written post. The past few weeks have been a roller coaster ride for me. Some personal things have kept me preoccupied and the outcome doesn't look as bright as I had hoped. But God has a reason for everything in our lives and I know no matter what the outcome His will ...will be done.

My reason for this is I have not paid enough attention to thing here in Rhode Island. Yesterday we had major flooding. After several days of rain and then having another 9 inches dumped on us in one day...many of the rivers just couldn't contain all the water. Many people lost there homes. Flooding up to the second floors. Malls were totally submerged as were a lot of the little mom and pop stores. Warwick mall (one of our larger ones) the whole first floors were under water. Cars in the parking lot were completely under water. Roads everywhere had to be closed and one community alone lost four bridges. Waste water treatment plants were under water and pumping was failing which is a health concern. Some roads are still closed as of today.

I'm asking all my Christian sisters and brothers to please say a prayer for Rhode Island and it residents. We have many people out of work here and this I'm sure is just one more blow to them.

Thanks for the prayers. I always know I can count on you all.

Start looking for some more cards next week...Technique Junkie just came out with a new newsletter with many techniques and my creativity is just waiting for me to release creativity here I come..

Dedicated to an Old Friend

This is dedicated to some one very very special from days long ago. We reconnected recently and it was both fun and painful. Memories are not always what we want them to be. But they are a part of us they help us grow. So my friend from so long ago
I wrote this from the heart and I know I'm not a poet by any means but this what I hope our future holds.

You were once more than just a friend we had special
feelings we thought would never end.
But somehow we grew apart and the years just flew.
We discovered each other for a while we laughed
we cried and we smiled.
We knew things old would never be for the special friends
we were you and me.
But out of this discovery I hope you can see
the new friends that we can be
out of the old and into the new and all those years
that just flew
we'll bond a new friendship
you and me.
Thanks for everything my special friend.
Thanks to my stamping friends for bearing with me through this post sometimes special things happen to all of us and they make us grow this was a week of healing and growth for me and maybe this silly attempt at a poem will touch some of you out there as well.
