I made this card for Lynn a friend of mine whose sister Kathy is losing her cleaning lady. Lynn thought that this image was perfect and I so agree! Hopefully she will be able to work with her vacuum better than this gal (hehe). I colored her with copics and made the flower with the dp(imaginisce)paper and my SU flower punch. Hope you like it!

Yay the cookies got all done, we ended up making over 2800 cookies and candy. There are 220 boxes total, they are in two rows at least. Thankfully my Sister helped us out with it! Wow it was fun but it was hard on the feet standing so much here is a picture of what all the boxes looked like when they were completed. The event was a total sucess from my understanding. I got a new stamp!! This is the Fisherman from Dog Gone Stamps, is he a dream or what? I just love the detail in him and I don't even fish.... Reminds me so much of going to Alaska though. He is colored with copics and the DP is BG two scoops. Hope everyone is having a great weekend and ready for Monday.

Hi everyone, what a crazy weekend. This is the first chance I got to post because yesterday DH and I baked over 1,000 cookies! On top of that we made sugared pecans and coconut haystacks for 200 people. We used a commercial kitchen at the new Event Center and it is so quick. We barely got 5 trays which held 10 dozen cookies (2 dozen per tray) put in and couldn't keep up with making the trays to get them in that fast! I thought I probably looked like Lucy trying to keep up with the candy episode, minus being skinny and redheaded. LOL It was so much work but so fun. Anyway this is a Whipper Snapper image called Dust Bunny collector, I just felt the need to have her but then what is new right? I have dust bunnies, I am sure you are all just gasping in amazement but it is true.... :( I just don't have time for cleaning as much as I should and with wood floors in much of the house what can I say. I just got these nesties today from 7 Kids College fund. They have so many things and are soon adding Magnolia's too! My punch is the Eyelet border punch from SU, all the papers are imaginisce. I used copics (from 7 kids college fund also) to color her colors E02, E00, E33, RV11, RV19 and C3.

Well I don't think I did the best job on this one, but wanted Linda to know I have used one of the precious images she sent me. I am still working on my packages to go out to my winners, if you haven't e-mailed me your address please do. My e-mail is firstname.lastname@example.org thanks for looking and have a great day.
Here are a few pictures I took at the retreat in Salina UT, we had so much fun. The first picture is our group. The next is MaReecia, Kim, MaryAnn and Jamie is the last. Jamie is the reason we do this! These ladies are a hoot to be around and my Sister and I always have a blast. We love to pick on each other and MaryAnn (Jamie & Kim's Mother) told me we shouldn't fight because we are family. We weren't even fighting! She would be shocked if we had been cause we can fight. LOL This is an annual event held at this store and has been going on for 6 years. This is only our 2nd year but we will go back. If you ever get a chance to go to something similar I say do it!

This is another new Sarah Kay I received recently that I fell in love with, she reminds me so much of our daughter when she was little. She even had a dress that was similar to that. I used copics to color her these are the colors RV11, V04, V01, Y15, 110, YR14 and E33. I thought this paper was perfect for this and I am trying so hard to use up the extras after making one card, the problem you ask? I don't like showing a card and using the same paper on the very next card. Does this happen to any of you? You will see this paper with my girl snowboarder down aways. Anyway I love the soft colors of it and thought what the heck! I am off to Salina today and will be home tomorrow night, I will try to leave a post on Sunday.

I wanted to get this little flower girl from Sugar Nellie inked up today and I made it, she is so cute and carefree. I colored her with copics and prismas. I used my oval nestabilities to cut it out and roughed up the edges with my SU tool, sewed around the edges with my machine and it was done. Oops forgot the hardware and inking. Hope you enjoy her as much as I do. My Sister Ann and I are off to Salina Utah next friday for a annual scrapbooking event there, it is a blast there must be 150 or more women there and what fun we have. Our group alone has 10 women and when we get together we just laugh all day long. It should be a hoot. Wish you all could come! Have a fabulous week everyone.

I made this basket for a darling little girl, I saw the unfinished basket at a Scrapbooking store in SLC while I was there and really wanted to try making something different, so one of the ladies I work with has a little girl. This wouldn't have to be used for Easter as it has princess papers on it. Hope you all get a chance to make something new once in awhile it helps change things up a little!

So how about this purse? I just love it, I haven't sewn for 20 years and some friends of mine are making all these bags and purses so I wanted in on the fun. This pattern can be found at Lola Again Blogspot. I made this with Lisa's help, she is a fantastic seamstress and helped me sooooo much, Thanks Lisa!
Look at the great stuff I received from Linda yesterday! She sent me lots of Magnolia images and this great book, and to top it all off a fabulous card. This was all for the fun giveaway she had on her blog and I have one too. Mine is full but if you trace around the people that joined mine you might be able to get in on one of these, so fun. Now I just need to get my stuff sent off...... Thanks so much Linda you are one terrific person!
