This week Bugaboo had challenge called Valentine's with a Twist. We had to use non traditional colors. So I tried to get as far away as I could. Here is my entry hope you all like it!!!

The stamp is a Bugaboo Stamps it is a digi stamp. I'm not sure where the papers came from. The heart punch is from EK Success.

Card for Saturday Night Spotlight Challenge SSHP15

This is a record two posts in one day!!!

I was just messing around on some blog pages and I saw this challenge for Saturday Night Spotlight SSHP 15 (great blog by the way!!!!) and since I had the image already colored, I thought oh neat five minutes and I will have a layout. Well three hours later with every piece of yellow, pink, patten paper out I finally came out with a layout!!

The flourish and picture are done with Wax Paper Tech and the image itself is colored with Copics (of course)

Good Morning Friends!!

This is an ATC I did for the Technique Junkies ATC Swap. The image is from BugaBoo digitals. I just found this company as I think they are fairly new. It's a must see for all you Digi lovers! They have the neatest people images...all too funny!!! (I think this is right) I just picked up a couple more today. The ATC is done with the Color Outside the Lines Technique and that can be found at Technique Junkies . It is done with Copic Markers.

I purchase my Copics from ICopic on line Hope you don't mind my advertising but I'm not doing it for me, when I find a great place I want to share!!!
I just hope I am giving you the right site addy's. I'm still trying to find out how to link sometimes it works for me and sometimes it doesn't!!! I'm sure it's operator related!!! LOL

Well have a great day...and stamp stamp stamp!!!!!

Good Monday Morning

Good Morning all!!! Hope everyone had a wonderful it is very windy here and we are supposed to get a real bad storm!!! So I say that is a good time to stamp stamp stamp!!!
I made two more Valentines cards this morning. I used the cuttlebug smoosh technique from Technique Junkies newsletter. Love my TJer's!!! I don't know how many of you belong to this great web site but for those that do....did you do what I did when I first joined? I made tons of each tech that came out so many that I have had to clean them out...that is not easy to do...but the biggest boo boo I made was not to label any of them. Now four years later I can't remember how and what techs I used!!! LOL Maybe someday I will go all the way back to the beginning and see if I can't match them...probably not!!! If you are not familiar with Technique Junkies they can be found at .
Back to the cards I used Color Box white to highlight the white on the boy card and I used SU Pink Passion on the girl card (which will go to my granddaughter in IL).
Glad you stopped by hope to visit some blogs later watch out it might be YOUR's!!!
Have a great day and a blessed one too!!!

Made a Diary for My Granddaughter

Good morning,

First I want to thank everyone for the wonderful compliments on my Little Book. I was so surprised with all the responses I got.

This is a diary I made for my granddaughter. She loves to that is the theme. The image is from Mo's Digital Stamps (and if I remember correctly it was a freebie). This reminded me of her so much because she can be found reading books almost all the time.

I would have loved to have added some lace and frilly stuff but that is not her style! I think I may be pushing it a little bit with the pearls.

I used SU tempting turquoise (her favorite color) and then sponged on some gold by Color Box.

The words are all computer generated and the beads and shells are from my stash.

Hope she likes it.

Trying Something New

Good Morning All,
Well I'm at it again...I have made mostly cards and a few name when a challenge was posted on Squigglefly for anything but a card...I decided to make a little book. What was I thinking!!! LOL

The finished piece (I still want to add something to June & July) is somewhat of a resolution book I did by Month!

Hope you like it.
I just realized this also will work for the Gingersnap Creations Resolution Challenge GC36. Woo Hoo two in one love it when that happens!!

Another Take on the Time Challenge

This is a similar card to the one I posted yesterday. I originally was going to make it this way but chickened out ( my conservative side said no no!!) So now that my alter ego won and some gals over at TJ asked me to make the card so they could see it I finally put it together last night.

Have had several possitive comments on it, so that makes me feel good, guess I'll try to let the alter ego out more!!
Thanks again for stopping by hope all you in the Midwest are keeping warm... I couldn't believe the pictures of the buses covered in ice on the internet today now that is cold. It is supposed to get much colder this weekend here, For now all I can complain about is all the little snow storms we have had. We had two days of sunshine and now today it is snowing on and off again!! Never amounts to too much just a pain driving...I don't have to drive anymore.. so I am thankful for that.
Well enough jibber jabber (dating myself) thanks again for stoping by love you all for your support!!

Quick ADD

I did this for a challenge on Squigglefly. The image is by Squigglefly and is a digital image. I colored it in Copic Markers . I added Prima flowers and highlighted them with Stickles (Diamonds), which you can see in the photo for a change. I also highlighted the fur on hat and coat. The love is a sticker by Sticko's.

You can view Digital Images at

Off to get ready for work (haven't been there in over a month!!!) so thought I should make an effort to go in and let them know I still exist! I hate it when it interferes with my creativity!
My boss has been very good to me in that he allows me to work from home as much as possible!
So I really can't complain.

Okay enough about me....thanks for stopping by have a great day and create create create!!!

Gingersnap Challenge GC35 Green Gold Purple

This was made for the Gingersnap Green Gold and Purple challenge.

I the image I used is from Sweet 'N Sassy digital collection the name of the set eludes me at the moment. It is a sheet with the images and several verses. Love digital stamps for the versatility of being able to re-size them, this one I made smaller to fit in the circle. I used dew drops for the rain. I also felt like playing with my punches so I chose the heart one for this care.
Okay that's it for now thanks for stopping by. If you're like me please keep warm!!! I hope we have seen the last of snow for a snow for four straight days here...not a lot but just enough for it to make driving tricky!!
Hugs and Blessings,

Wow where did a month go?

It seems just like yesterday that I posted and yet it is almost a whole month...I know I have done a lot of cards since then (or think I have) I'll have to go see what I can come up with to post.
First I want to wish everyone a Blessed and Prosperous New Year. I pray for all that are out of work or lost income due to the economy plunge this year. Just keep your eyes on Him and He will bring you through...He never leaves us!!! I know this because I retired and am only bringing in a third of my DH lost a good part of his commissions this year and yet our bills are paid every month and we have food on the table. I thank God every day for every blessing we have.

Now lets see what artwork I have. I just remembered I had to move all my files around because of issues with my computer and I will have to hunt out my pictures...I did make a few Valentines Cards with some cute stamps from Victorine Originals she has some new ones that came out. The last one is using three of these stamps. I just got them so I haven't had time to get them all ready yet. Check them out I love the two Penguins she has.
Have a great Sunday and hopefully with the Holidays behind me I will have more time to keep up with my blog again.
Hugs to you all
