Blog Candy Coming Soon!

Yes you read right I will be hosting a blog candy give away real soon so be sure to check back often, I am celebrating a few things my blog is over one year old(was 1 one the 6th of January) and I am almost to 5000 hits. I am going to offer a lot of stamps and goodies. If you like some of the stamps you have been seeing you will love my giveaway.

Tom's Birthday Card

Today's card is for my BIL from my sister, inside it says " Know what your getting for your Birthday? OLD!" He and my Mom share the same Birthday, I am so focused on hers I forgot it was his until my sister called and asked me to make one for her. This guy doesn't look anything like Tom but maybe someday if he cuts off his hair and gets fat.... :) He turns 58 tomorrow. Hope you enjoy the card and have a fabulous day!

It's Mojo Monday!

This is my card for Mojo Monday, you can play along. Just go to their site here and make a card following the sketch of the week, then upload it with the directions they give you and on your blog of course. This little gal is such a cute image but she is to large to do on a regular sized card, so I used her here. Hope you like it and you play along.

I personally hold on to way to many of the cards I make so I am sending them to Pat Adam, she distributes them to kids in the hospital there in Detroit. She is requesting Valentine cards for them and they must be to her by 2/7/09. I am sending her my Easter cards left over from last year and various others. I hope that you can all stop by her blog located here,and if you have extras pass them on to give these kids a great day! If you decide to participate write to Pat for her address.

High Hopes - A darling girl and her Pig

This little girl and her pig were so cute I couldn't resist buying it, I have had it for a few months now but am just getting around to playing with it. DP is some doodlebug design that I picked up at Roberts Crafts. Picture is colored with Prisma pencils and gamsol. This card by Sandy aka "shulsart"on SCS was my inspiration for mine. You can check out her blog here.

FS102 Congrats Lori!

This is a Featured Stampers Challenge that I participate in whenever I get the chance, it lets you look at someone else's work and recreate what they have done with your own touches. This is Lori's Card. As you can see I changed some things, brads, use of colors and stamp. I hand drew the background and it shows..... I didn't have a nice background stamp that would look like it belonged so I improvised. Hope you like it and if you get a chance go check out the link here to participate now. Thanks for dropping by.

The layout is from the Splitcoaststampers Card Sketch challenge this week. You can check that out here. I added some stickles to the snow and snowflakes for a little added zest.

Valentine Pig

Wow can you believe it 3 posts in 3 days? I am back!!! Well today I worked on this cute little valentine pig from High Hopes, I made the cuts with my new cricut machine I got for christmas. I also used some Basic Grey paper that I fell in love with and just had to buy. I hope to get much use from it in the future. I am working on some wall words, but that hasn't gone the absolute best.... If anyone knows of any tips on that I would love to hear from you. I will let you know when I end up with some good ones to hang up. I have a fabulous saying though. Hope you all have a great week. (This photo was edited on 2/10/09 I touched up the pig somewhat with a deeper color as he was washed out so badly, then I added Twinkling H20's in addition to that to really pop him out some.)
