Hambo Soda Shop Pigs

Don't they look happy? These are the soda shop pigs from Hambo stamps. Just a quick card for today. I loved this paper with them, it has all kinds of desserts listed on it how perfect is that? LOL I used my copics to color them and some twinkling H20's for highlighting. I am trying to learn how to sketch and having not the best time of it, I have a project due for a class I am taking tomorrow so staying busy with that instead of stamping. Have a great day and check back soon.

Grand Opening

I made a second card for the challenge, only much brighter, is it too bright? Hi everyone, today is the Grand Opening for our new Event Center in our small town, it will be a nice addition. I made this card for Jennifer the Director of the Center, she has been working very hard on getting this all put together I am sure and she is new to our town also. This is the SCS sketch challenge for this week also you can check that out on the link. I hope she likes it, what do you think?

Fun give away! Please read details.

I "won" a gift by leaving one of the first 5 comments on Linda's Crafty Creations so now I'll see who my first 5 are. The first five people to respond to this post will get something made by me! My choice. For you! (there is a possibility it will be a purchased item instead of homemade or both) This offer does have some restrictions and limitations: 1- I make no guarantees that you will like what I make! 2- What I create will be just for you. 3- It'll be done sometime this year (I will want to get it done ASAP so it will be in the next month or so). 4- You have no clue what it's going to be. 5-The catch? Oh, the catch is that you must repost this on your blog and offer the same to the first 5 people who do the same on your blog! (then come here and post, I WILL check your blog *wink*) The first 5 people to do so and leave a comment telling me they did win a homemade gift by me! Oh, and be sure to post a picture of what you win when you get it!So....who will be the first 5 people?????

Mojo Monday

I love doing these challenges, sketch challenges by far are my favorite. This is another Mojo Monday sketch. I used MME paper and didn't get the image centered as well as I would have liked, this snowboarder is another of the Dog Gone Stamps. I think this one is so cute and versatile for a girl or boy. My 2nd layer on the right top part of the card didn't show as much as it should have probably. this is colored with copics, I have just received some more to add to my small collection so I feel I need to use them. If you like sketch challenges try this one out, they have lots of people who do them and Julee does a great job. Thanks Julee!

FS106 Julie Lacey

It's Featured stamper day and Julie Lacey is the gal to case. Here is a link to her fabulous gallery. If you love layers you will love Julie's cards, she is the queen of layers. I had a difficult time using this many (actually made two cards but the first didn't have enough layers). Anyway meet Nikko one of the new stamps from Dog Gone Stamps, isn't he adorable. He just looks like he is saying let's go play! Hope you all take a look at the blog candy down a couple of posts and have a great day girls!

Custard Valentine

Today's card is one for my children, even though they are grown I love making them a special card for special occassions. They told me after Christmas when I sent them and everyone store bought cards that it just wasn't the same and they missed my cards because they treasure them. How sweet is that? So I hurriedly made them (and their significant others) a card to get in the mail tomorrow. I really love this cow called "Custard" from Sugar Nellie and I just got it in the mail. So had to ink him up and dirty him.... I hope you all enjoy him as much as I enjoyed making these.

Today is Featured Stamper over at SCS today's Feature is Karen Dunbrook. This is my case of her card seen here. I hope I did it justice. It is so much fun to participate in these challenges and go look at all the wonderful galleries. There are so many that you never even see, because of timing I suppose. Any way if you get a chance go over and play it is tons of fun.

Sarah Kay

I didn't get my new Dog Gone Stamps today but I did however get this and 3 other darling Sarah Kay Stamps. This little girl reminds me so much of my daughter when she was little I just had to have it. Forgive the coloring, I don't think it turned out the best it is anyway. I am going to try to get my blog candy together and put it on sometime this week, just a hint I have asked Nancy with Dog Gone Stamps to donate some of her darling stamps and she said yes! So I just need to decide what else will be going with it and let you all know. Check back more later.

Yay new stamps!

Hey everyone Dog Gone has some new stamps out and they are some of the cutest dogs! You can check them out by clicking on this link. I personally can't wait to get the ones I ordered yesterday. Nikko smiling is my absolute favorite. Isn't he precious? I have a friend who has a dog that looks like this and she would love this in a card. New stamps just get my juices flowing and creativity up. I will post some as quick as I get them and since mail from there is one day a way for me I should have mine tomorrow I think! Yay!

Mojo 72

My Mojo Monday card, I forgot to put the ribbon on and had it all glued down! I do that kind of thing all the time, get so focused on a couple of things get done and go "Wow I can't believe I forgot it". Anyway this is it for tonight, maybe I need to learn how to get everything out before putting the card together. What works for the rest of you? I would love to hear what triggers your memory or how you organize to, but then I will probably just feel a little more inadequate.... Haha Be sure to let me know anyway. Have a great night!

FS104 BevR

Today's submission for the Featured Stamper BevR. This card is the one I cased. The little bear is a Dog Gone Stamp you can check them out by the link on the right. They are coming out with some new stamps soon so be sure to check them out. They really have some fun and unique things. Ms. Bear is colored with prisma and gamsol and highlighted with sparkling H20's. You can see I actually sewed on this card something I have only tried one other time and it shows.... :( one side is much closer in the stitches than the other 3 but what can I say I need some more practice and now I think I will keep trying. I love that look, Ila at Artfully Ila does stitching on most of hers and I have always been envious. Anyway hope everyone has a spectacular week, see ya soon.
