Thank you to my followers.   I have a shout out to SABRIEL, she was my first follower. I'm going to send her alittle something, not sure what yet, but thank you SABRIEL for being my first.
 I hit 20 followers!!!!!!! I'm excited to have hit 20. If someone would of asked me if I was ever going to get into blogging I would of said,"me, nah...I'm not that computer sabby person. I will just make and share with friends in emails." I still have not told my friends to check out my blog because I wanted to try it out first, before Making a fool of myself. WELL......Look at me now, having fun blogging, I even learned how to add music to my blog and I am addicted to it.

Halloween Poster

I made this poster for a friend that is a teacher. I never entered it into a challenge and now it fits.

Hi Honey

I have been hopping around so many blogs this past week, that I forgot what blog I was making an orange card for. I'm sure I will find it later. For now here is a very cute card I love how it all came together. I used everyday paper doll pg 43 for the tea cup. take a look.
The background is a fiskar plate I ran through my cuttle bug then I sanded it to make it pop. The stamps are two different sets. Craft lounge for the bees and Hi Honey-"bees Knees" set. I can't remember the teabag and your tearrific stamp set name. I also used Flower Soft for the tea leaves in the tea bag. What do you all think about this one? I loooove it. I found it! paperplaytime

Found another nice blog today

 look at  this blog. I need more time to explore there is so much to see. Maybe later.

Chilean Miner Rescue

Have you guys been watching the miners in Chile coming out. If you haven't you should. They have been coming out as new men. Praising God, thanking their country, embracing their wives and family. I have been in tears with the stories of each individual and what they have shared as they come out. They each had a job down there from the skills and gifts they had learned over the years. A singer to entertain, a journalist to document the days, a pastor to pray, etc...It has been amazing to watch. #15 just got out, 18 to go.

Pink Stamper Challenge

I wanted to enter this challenge , so I pulled a realllyyyy old cartridge"Stretch Your Imagination" and made the card on the "ready to try a project page".  the box even looks a little faded and boy I just did not like the outcome of this card, but decided to post it for the challenge anyway. I know we've all made cards that look like this hahaha and just don't post it. When I'm ready to start challenges of my own I'm going to have "post your worst card/project and I'm going to save this for that. hahahaha. Any how, heerrrrrre it is.....

I even tried to add bling to it and it didn't change my thoughts about it. I'm sure one of my girlfriends girls will love the card when they get it in the mail. There is no mistakes in crafting right????. http://www.mypinkstamper.com/2010/10/saturday-challenge.html

Pear Thanks


I made this for the Throwback Thursday Challenge over at Emma's Blog.
I used the Serenade Carttridge. The "thanks" is from Wild Card.
I used white paper and colored in the pears. I had bought the blank cards from Office Depot, on the clearence rack. I love when I find a great deal. Then added Sakura Gelly Roll pen in copper star. I just realized on Friday morning , that I didn't follow directions on Emma's challenge,ooops. I didn't make my card a shape card, so I'm going to take mine off of her list. As I was going through others enties I saw the pattern and realized it. oh well, my card still will be used. It won't let me take it off so Emma said a rectagle is a shape hehehe.

Santa


I found a new challenge for tonight and it needed to have bling,ribbon, and buttons, so I took todays earlier card and added the 3 element they requested and boy does it make a huge difference.

My Muse for PKS




The beach is my muse. I love the crashing sound of the waves, I love the sand in my feet, I love the smell of bb-q and most of all I love the sunsets. This is for Peachy Keen Stamps. I like how the crab turned out I used stazon ink and it worked great on fabric. I made a mini book of 4th of July. See what I mean, entering challenges gets your projects done.

Merry Christmas Santa


Here is my card for today I used russet red Flower Soft and white enamel accent from Ranger on the hat. It's the first time using both. I picked at the enamel with my pocker to make it look fluffy,not sure if I like that. The cloring is with Copic, the glasses are with Sakura sparkle pen. I just submitted this to a contest at http://turnedgypsy.blogspot.com/p/contests_29.html
Ther is two days left. The challenge was red and white christmas theme.
Go Make something and enter. I get so much done entering challenges.

Pumpkin Family


The challenge was to add pumpkins from a Cricut Cart. I used Doodlecharms which I have not used in a loooong time. Once again I used Peachy Keen Face Stamps. Momma pumpkin went heavy on her lipstick today hahaha.

Squirrel Popping up to say hi




I just made this card inspired by Creeations with Christina. The challenge was to make a fall card. So I added a twist to mine and used a squirrel almost falling hahaha. Another fabulous stamp set I have from

http://www.cleardollarstamps.com/ I colored it with copic markers and used sakura glitter pen (copper star). I flocked the tail.







Blue Snowman/Stitched Scarf


I made another snowman cover for a star book. This is from the Christmas Cheer-cricut cartridge. I'm not sure of the blue snowman, but he goes well with the paper. I made his scarf look like it's stitched using Sakura Gelly Roll white pen #50. The MS lattice punch is so much fun to use, can you see the stitching on the edge, I snuck in more stitching. Oh and the face is from Peachy Keen "simple simon" stamp set.
