Ribbons and Buttons

A closer look!

I had this darling digi colored for ages and I finally got her made into a card! This cute dig is from The Paper Shelter and she is called Magical Light! It is also once again time for another fun challenge at The Paper Shelter! This challenge is Ribbons and Buttons! That is what we need to see on your entries. If you check out my light you will see it has almost a marble effect! Truly a magical light, right? I had covered the light fixture with liquid glass and was busily working along. I had carefully laid this card aside for the liquid glass to dry and after a few more cards were added to my pile I realized I was stacking them on top of the tacky liquid glass. So, that pretty swirl of brown is actually fibers from the card that was on top of it. No great trick of swirling paint or fantastic coloring technique I just added more liquid glass! LOL! It turned out better than I thought it would!

Lace And Pearls

A closer look!
Have you ever thought how much work a spa day is? LOL! Well, it seems like work to me. I guess I am not a spa type girl. LOL! Anyway, it is time for a new challenge at "The Paper Shelter". This time we want to see your lace and pearls! (I will let you in on a little secret, I am not a lace and pearl type girl either!) It's true jeans, t-shirts, and just a touch of make-up is more my style! LOL! I am glad my husband is happy with me just the way I am! I chose "Spa Day" for my card and added my lace and pearls on each side of this fun stamp.  I hope you will grab your favorite digi and join our fun challenge!

 A closer look!
I thought that this card would be appropriate for our April challenge at The Creative Crafters! If you haven't made the connection it is "April showers bring May flowers"!

Darn I Missed This!


I and Blogger have not had some happy days as of late. Also, I have had a hectic few weeks and it will be even worse the next two weeks as I will work a temporary job in special elections. I do this to earn money for my trip to Puyallup each year to the Scrapbook Show there. But, it means six days a week with my work day starting at 4:30AM and ending at 6:30PM. I know I will totally exhausted at the end of the two weeks but it pays the piper! LOL! Somehow my card for The Creative Crafters never posted! It is a card that I was pleased with the end results and now it is to late to enter in challenges! Arrrrrrr!  Anyway, it is NOT to late for you to enter The Creative Crafters Challenge! So, click the link and enter!

Kindness!


I love this sweet image form Polk A Doodles! During the harsh winter months it is important to remember the animals that are struggling to make it through the winter.

For The One I Love!


I am sure some of you are wondering why I picked this digi for "The One I love" Challenge at the Paper Shelter this week! It is because to me love is expressed when my husband has helped me with the menial chores through the years. To be honest I would rather have this type of expression of love than flowers or candy! What about you what is your choice of "For The One I love"? Join our fun challenge at The Paper Shelter and show us your love expression. This darling digi is called Washing Dishes ! Just click on the links! There is a very generous prize for the winner using a stamp from The Paper Shelter!

A note to my husband.....thanks for always being there for me! Love you always!

Birthday for a Friend!


  A closer look at my stamp!
 The inside of my card!
Good-morning!  I hope you have each gotten past the holidays and are ready for spring. I always feel a little sad each year as I take down my Christmas decorations and pack them away, knowing it will be another year before I  will see them again. So, I try to move onto spring and the pops of color it brings. It is also time for another Fun challenge at Creative Crafters! If you haven't played with us before, be sure and hop over and check out our challenge. It is always "Anything Goes" so you can let your creative juices flow! I hope you will join the fun!
This is a birthday card I made for a special friend. We have known each other since we were little girls. We reconnected a few years ago and have had so much fun making cards, and enjoying each others friendship.  I wanted to make her a card that would let her know how special she is. I hope she enjoyed it and her day was a wonderful one! Happy Birthday Nan! You deserve the best!

Seasons Greetings!


I am loving all these cute penguin stamps. This little guy looks so festive and I added lots of sparkle with extra fine glitter!  A simple ribbon and a few rhinestones are all that is needed to make this cute guy into a fun filled card. I am entering this card at the following challenges:

Christmas Bird


Yesterday I posted a silly reindeer, today a silly bird. These goofy birds crack me up. I don't know if it is the buggy eyes, or the way their feathers are a bit askew, but they are so funny. I made this Christmas card for a special lady at church. She has always greeted me with a smile, hug, and kiss. She likes birds so I thought she would enjoy this card!

Not your ordinary Reindeer!

 A closer look!
I am not sure what about these silly reindeer I like but I smile every time I see one. I was happy to get this one to use on a card.

You will be relieved to know I am almost at an end of my Christmas cards! LOL! I am entering this card in the following challenges:
