Caught a Bug

For Bellarific Friday's Challenge at Stamping Bella.  It was an anything goes week.  I used one of my favorite sketches from Paper Crafts.  It was my very first entry for a submission for publication so I thought I'd use it for my first time "trying out" for a DT.  I also used Fluey Huggabugg then as well.  No such luck with the publication, fingers crossed for the DT.  The ladies that have played along this month have done some amazing work.  They are all so talented.  Whoever the Bellababes pick will be a wonderful addition to the team.
I colored Fluey Huggabugg in with my prismacolor pencils on neenah white cardstock.  I used smooch on his clothing, crystal lacquer on his water bottle and sugar coating on his wings.  I made the flowers, sigh.  The bottom layers are prima flowers and the top layers I punched with the Fiskars 1 inch Poppy Punch.  At first I made little roses but didn't like the look so I flattened them out and added more layers...much better!
I have to give a big shout out to my hubs!!! He Rocks!  I mentioned to him that I wanted to get a watermark for my photos, he says pssht, I can make you one. So yay! I have a watermark now=) Thank-you hunny!
Thanks for stopping by.  I hope ya'll have a great weekend.  Hubs and I are going to go to our car meet tonight.  Then I'll be packing and doing laundry all weekend, yay!

A Field of Thanks...

The Greeting Farm is sponsoring this weeks SFYTT.  I flipped the sketch to the left.  I colored Quarterback Ian in with my prismacolor pencils on Bella's Bestest Paper. 
This is for a couple in our car club.  (I also {heart} VW's!)   They are Steelers fans so I thought this image was perfect for them.  Anyhow, they gave my daughter a stroller combo that has two carseat bases, one for each car...where were these cool ideas when I had kids!?!?  We appreciate their kindness so much!  So, I'll be bringing it up to ID with me next week...and I'm so happy to say when I come home my daughter and grandsons will be as well...she's decided to move down here!!!  Have a great day everyone!

Nana's Birthday.

My entry for Denami Design theme challenge which is Birthday.  This is for my hubs grandmother, her birthday is the 19th.  If my grandson hasn't arrived by his due date of the 13th, I hope he'll hold out until Nana's birthday:)  We just love her to pieces.
I colored this cute penguin from DD with my prismacolor pencils and OMS on Bella's Bestest Paper.  I paper pieced the balloon, added some Smooch and Crystal Lacquer to it.  I used SSSC82 for my sketch.
Have a fabulous day everyone!  I'll be tucked away in my cave all day:)

Miss You, See You Soon...

This card is already in the mail and on it's way to Idaho to my precious lil' grandson, Wylie.  I miss him so much and am so excited to see him.  My daughter is 37 weeks along today, so I'll be making my way up for Connor's birth soon.  I can't believe she only has 3 weeks left!
This is my entry for Bellarific Friday's Challenge over at Stamping Bella.  Paulabella had a sketch for us to do.  I used Arivedercibella and the sentiment from Billboardabella.  Colored her in with my Copics.  Did a little paper piecing for her luggage and out of the box with her scarf, I'm loving that technique!
I hope you all have a happy Monday...hubs and I are going to watch The Bounty Hunter as soon as I'm done posting.

A Girl's Gotta Have Fun...

Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps is this weeks sponsor for  Card Positioning Systems.  Her lil' smirk and the fun she's having with her voodoo doll is priceless!
I kept the card pretty simple.  I stamped her on Neenah cardstock, colored her in with my copics.  No glitter, sparklies, or shiny stuff...gasp!  Denami Design ribbon, love their ribbon! 
This is for my daughter, I hope she gets a good laugh when she gets it.  Have a great day!

Bling it on

Today is Friday the 13th, anyone superstitious?  Not me.  I love Friday the 13th, it reminds me of the day my daughter was born=)  The number 13 runs in my family.  Our lil' grandson Connor is due September 13th...our fingers are crossed he arrives on his due date!
This is my entry for Bellarific Friday Challenge which was Bling it's that for using bling on a card!?!?!?  I've had Martha Lulu from Stamping Bella forever and this was the first time she's seen ink!  I colored her with my Copics then sprinkled Glamour Dust on her dress and wings.  I used Smooch on the flower in her hair and the little dots in her wings but it didn't show up too well, ah well.  
Have a fabulous weekend and don't let Friday the 13th keep you inside tonight!  Hubs and I are going out to dinner then off to our Friday night VW meet...

Lucy's Green at Heart

So, I'm trying to figure this blogging thing out, I have so much to learn!  For those that know me, know I am not good with computers...this is my 3rd attempt at making this post, let's hope it didn't post 3 times!
Anyhow, I made this card for a friend of mine who could use some cheering up.  The last few months have been a bit trying for her.  She's been amazingly strong through all that she's been through and I pray that she continues to be the tough gal that she is!
I inked up Lucy Ketto with Momento ink, colored her in with my Prismacolor pencils and OMS on Neenah cardstock.  I added Glamour Dust to her wings and skirt.  Marvy 6 petal flower punch (the blue one, it's a little big, lol) to make the flower.  Designer paper is Basic Grey's Green at Heart.  Sentiment by Stamping Bella.  Sketch is Card Patterns Sketches 75.

Glitter Crumbs

A thank-you card for my neighbor.  She brought me over orange Gerber Daisies and an orange shirt for my birthday.  They are the sweetest neighbors on our street!
I made this for Denami Designs Product Challenge #3 which is Glitter.  I stamped the background panel in chocolate chip then filled it in with Crystal Lacquer and sprinkled the image with glitter.  Denami Designs sells Crystal Lacquer with a fine tip that fits onto the bottle so you can basically write with the stuff...I love it!  For the main image I stamped it in chocolate chip, used my glue pen to go over it, then sprinkled the glitter on top.  I used Crumb Cake, Very Vanilla Cardstock and Denami Designs Chocolate Shimmer Paper.  Ribbon is by Stampin' Up.
The sketch is this weeks Sketch For You To Try.
Have a great Wednesday night, I'm looking forward to So You Think You Can Dance Tonight!  My vote is for Lauren=)

Happy Birthday to Me...

Welcome to my blog and my first post!  Today is my birthday and this is what I wanted for my birthday, a blog.  My hubs named it for me and helped me set it up since I am not so good with computers, ha!  I hope he's patient with me and that I'm quick to learn this stuff.
Anyhow, on to the whole reason for my blog...stamping and card making. 
I made this card for the Bellarific Friday Challenge which was to do paper piecing on your card.  I stamped Cuppacakeabella and the sentiment on Neenah paper with Momento ink and colored her in with my Copics.  Liquid applique and glamour dust for the frosting, topped with a stickles cherry and crystal lacquer.  I used MOJO 149 for my layout.
Hope ya'll enjoyed your Sunday.  Hubs took me out for breakfast this morning and a day of shopping for my birthday.
