Kenny K's JessiJane

Hello everyone, I am hoping your week is going well! I have been busy working in my yard trying to get all the flowers I purchased months ago in their beds for the summer. The property we purchased last year had been neglected for several months before we moved in so we have had to replace the grass and we are trying to get all of it spruced up. Maybe one day it could look good enough to put on have any of you ever checked out this site? They have numerous categories you can post pictures in, I have put some of my latest cards there. They do have an area for gardening which is great, it is always nice to see what everyone does. Magazines are great but I don't know about you but I probably will never get that exact look! Haha I dream of it though...
Anyway to the card, this is a Kenny K's digital she is called JessiJane. I thought she was a great card for a 26 year old guys birthday. Hopefully he will too!

This is a easel card, I really love doing these they are fun and easy to do.
Another site you should check out if you haven't already is one called Pinterest, this site is cool because as you are roaming the internet and find a great picture of anything you like or would like to save you can pin it and keep it for later. It is like adding to your favorites only just one picture at a time rather than the whole site. Plus you can get back to the site you found it on too! You can set up your own boards and pin the stuff you like such as Cards, Scrapbook pages, pictures, furniture, DIY etc. This is my boards page and you can follow people who have the same interests as yourself.

Thank you all for stopping by and if you have a blog please let me know, I would love to come by and check out yours. Have a great week, I will be gone for a few days starting Sunday, off to AZ.

Meljen's Sick Little Bear

I made this card for Nate a 3rd cousin of ours who is having surgery on Monday, Nate is a special needs child that is going to be 5 in September and is going to have a colostomy. I hope this little guy gets well real soon and our prayers go out to him and his family. Hopefully this will put a smile on his sweet face when he receives it.

This image is from Meljen's Designs and it is called Sick Little Bear, isn't he a sweet image, just makes you want to hug him.

Have a beary great weekend and thanks for dropping in!

Wha What?? She's Crafty...

Crafty Secrets
that is... I know crazy huh? Posting a Halloween card in June? I love Halloween and the lady at the PO here in town leaves Halloween items up all year round, her Mother collects witches she told me. So I told her I would make her Mom a Halloween card. I got these stamps a couple months ago now and really wanted to play with them.

I love the vintage style of them, I have some vintage Valentine's cards given to my Dear Grandmother when she was a child in school and I cherish them. I love to take them out and look at them, they have a charm that you don't see much anymore.

Anyway I hope Susan's Mother enjoys the card as much as I enjoyed making it, I may have to join a Halloween swap...

Have a spectacular Friday Ladies and thanks for stopping by!

Fishing Teddy Bo

Quick post today to show you all this darling Teddy Bo image that I got the other day, fun to color and play with. I purchased the swinging Teddy Bea too, I will try to get a card with her posted soon. My new Big Shot came in on Friday, I had one of the first Sizzix machines and it doesn't fit the new flower die that I purchased from SU a few months back. Finally I will be able to use it. Yay!

Inside says "To One Spectacu-lure Father!" My Dear Father-in-law was a fisherman, he doesn't do much of it anymore I don't think. He probably gets tired of all the fishing cards I give him. LOL Now I need to figure out something for my Husband...

Thanks so much for dropping by!

Bugaboo Digital

My post today is the Brat w/balloon digital from Bugaboo. They really have loads of darling images. I also used the cupcake trio from Meljen's Designs on the inside. I used my copic airbrush on the clouds, for a little different look.
How do you all keep track of your digitals? I have been printing them on copy paper and keeping each company I buy on a different page. I also am saving them all to a thumb drive for safety. (After all these can really add up after a little while. Hehe) I'd like to know other options that may work better so give me your input please!

I found some really nice stuff today at The Cutting Cafe. I haven't purchased any yet, but they have some backgrounds digital which I really haven't seen before now.

What type of image just really grabs you? I would love to know what makes you think "I just can't live without buying/checking out this". Mine is always Halloween items, anywhere I go whether your blog or a stamp company etc. I always check out the Halloween section if there is one.

So of course I purchased a Halloween stamp from here, already bought some rubber from Crafty Secrets too. I buy to many and forget what I have come Halloween then have to buy more of course! LOL The paper I used is from SU an older set that I had not cracked open until now and I am trying to get out of the comfort zone on the colors I am using with my copics. Hope you have all had a wonderful weekend and thanks so much for dropping by!

Wee Suzy

I purchased this digital a few weeks ago from Wee Stamps and finally got around to playing with it, she is so much fun to color and isn't she adorable? She just has the sweetest look. The papers I used are from Walmart, I loved the softer colors and just had to pick them up. I swore to myself I would buy only 6 x 6's from now on but they don't sell them, and they didn't have any in the 8 1/2 x 11 size either. So with my left overs today I am going to make another one similar to this. I may use my new Bugaboo image for that one.

Here are some other shots of the card laying down.I took these shots on my back deck the top one was in a shaded area because the one I took in the sun had speckles on it. What is that from I wonder?

It looks like we are going to have a nice day here today, for a change... We had frost here last night. I am happy to see some sun but more thankful that we are not having problems that many other areas are experiencing with flooding, tornadoes, mud slides etc.. My heart goes out to all that are experiencing these.

Thanks so much for stopping by and let me know I would love to come by your blog and leave a comment!
