Chillax and Enjoy

Hey peeps.  We are almost to Friday.  Another weekend is less than twenty four hours away.  Are you ready?  I'm going to be unplugging this weekend but I wanted to give you guys a little bit of inspiration to just "chillax".  We find ourselves always in a hurry and not really going anywhere or getting caught up. Remember to spend time with family and friends.  Take a moment to enjoy the sunshine and smell the roses.  Forget about all the superficial stuff, enjoy your life and your family.  I'm going to enter this card into the Simon Says Stamp Monday challenge, the Little Tangles challenge and I'll squeeze this one in as a last minute card for the Curtain Call and Naughty or Nice challenges.

Hugs and love~

SCS498 - May Flowers


Hey peeps.  How's everyone doing today?  I'm back with a card using the new sketch that's up at Splitcoaststampers.  I had sooo much fun coloring up this image from Simply B stamps called May Flowers. I'm thrilled with the way it turned out.  And the sketch that Janette had us working with this week made a perfect layout for my image.  Ahhh...so HAPPY!  I used an older Angel Company paper back for this image since it had all the colored I needed.  I had colored this image prior to picking paper which I rarely do.  I would of been upset if I didn't have paper to match.  Yes, I'm anal like that.  LOL

Oh before I forget.  Since the Curtain Call challenge is an anything goes (my favorite) I'm going to pop this card over on their challenge blog.  I hope everyone has a fantastic day.  Go out and make it BEAUTIFUL! 

Hugs and love~

Some Odd Girl Release - Welcome Moving Kaylee and Party Pig

Hey peeps.  Today there's a new release going on over at Some Odd Girl.  Let me introduce you to Moving Kaylee.  I LOVE this image sooo much.  My daughter will be moving out soon and I knew that I wanted to make a card with this image for her.  I've colored this image five times already.  Need to have them ready for our military families that move frequently.  

Next is the adorable Party Pig.  Okay, I smile every time I see this little guy.  I have him just hanging out in the pasture with is party hat on.  He is so stinkin' cute.  I think I'm going to name him George.  He just looks like a George to me. :-)  All of my images where colored with Copic markers.  

Now it's time for you to head on over to the Some Odd Girl Shop and load up your shopping carts with all of his awesomeness.  Also we would love to see what you create with this new images.  Head on over to the Some Odd Girl Facebook Community and let us see you work.

Hugs and love~

Allow Faith To Be Your Guide

Hey peeps.  Wow has it been a busy morning.  Finally had a moment to relax and get my card loaded for the Neat And Tangled challenge.  Between running around with my daughter this morning and trying to get organized in my stamp room I'm tired.  I have been a creative soul lately so my room looked like a bomb went off.  

Anyway, I'm entering this card into the Neat and Tangle challenge.  This week you had to use stencils and as we all know, I have been playing A LOT with stencils lately.  For this card I used the Layering Stars stencil from Tim Holtz.  I laid it on a slight slant and used embossing paste for my medium.  I then used this beautiful sentiment from Paper Smooches' Spiritual Sampler stamp set.  I heat embossed it with some Hero Arts Silver embossing powder.  The lovely ribbon on my card is from Really Reasonable Ribbon.

Thanks for taking a moment to swing by today.  I hope you have a blessed rest of the day and find time to creative something beautiful.  I know you can do it. :-)

Hugs and love~

The Card Concept Challenge #14


Hey peeps.  I hope you had a fabulous weekend.  I wanted to join the challenge over at The Card Concept.  This is my all time FAVORITE color combo.  You just can't go wrong with it in my opinion.  LOL  I've been on a stenciling kick lately.  I just love the versatility you have with them.  I pulled out my distress inks on this one along with some embossing powder and paste.  Even added a little bit of superfine glitter over the embossing paste.  Just couldn't make the card without a little bit of sparkle.

I'm headed back into the kitchen to finish my daughter's birthday cake.  I made a cake from scratch. This is the first one sooo we will see how it turns out.  I'm sure I can hide any flaws in frosting. :-)  Have a great week peeps.

Hugs and love~

Seeing Spots - Stenciling with Spackling

Hey peeps.  How's your weekend going?  Mine is off to a great start.  I'm in my stamp room creating so what in the world could be better.  I've been playing around with my stencils and some lightweight spackling.  I wanted to see if it would work just as well as embossing paste.  And what do ya know...it DOES.  I even added some color and viola, instant happiness.


Check out my video so you can see how easy it was to create the cool effects on my card.  I'm also going to enter my card into the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge as well as the Naughty or Nice Challenge.






Hugs and love~
