I inked this cutie up with Distress Inks, this was the first time this Tilda was inked up including the moon and the cute rocket.

Beat the mid winter blues

It's my turn to share what I've created for our "Beat the Mid-Winter Blues" challenge for this month at Sundays With Crissy. You can interpret the challenge any way you want. I chose to ski thru this challenge with this cute little Penguin Skier. He is available at the Whimsy Stamps Store.

The Snowflakes are also from Whimsy, the winters jewel 1 is available at the Whimsy Shop. I gave them the twinklets treatment for a frosty look.

I have not posted since last week due to my not feeling so good, I am back in action and ready to create!! Have a great evening!!

Special Delivery

Hello it's time for a New challenge over at Totally Gorjuss, this week we want to see your Welcome cards!!

I went ahead and made this card with the sweet little Jelly Bean from Whimsy Stamps, I thought he was perfect for a baby card, and this one could be used mutual, Boy or Girl! My sentiment is also from Whimsy Stamps, but these are Digi sentiments. I love the fact that these are ready to print and you don't have to deal with inking them

My paper, I have had this paper stack for a LOOOOG time, this is the DCWV the Nursery pack, I think I need to use these up and I have a lot of these.

I hope you can play this week!!

Cheers To You

Hello this week at Totally Gorjuss our Challenge theme is "Be A Star", with a great prize to the winner, check out the TG Challenge Blog for all the details!

Right away my Cheerleader Tilda came to mind, I inked her up and colored her with Distress Re Inkers. After I was done coloring her and when I was trying to put her together on my card, nothing worked for me. I don't like her posture, I think she would have been better both legs down just holding her pom poms.

Struggled a bit but card is finally done, Not too happy with my results but don't have time to build a new one. Has this ever happened to you when you are not happy with the results of a card, it just doesn't look right. Maybe it is not my image but the layout of my card, don't know??

My sentiment is from Whimsy Stamps, These Retro Bottle Cap sentiments are really fun to use and I also used the Bottle Cap Die for a perfect crisp cut!

I hope you can play with us this week, thanks for peeking!!

You Warm My Heart

Hello thanks for peeking in, I have Christmas Lay Out I made for the Whimsy Stamps Inspirations Magazine #5 that was released in December. Well I know we are not in the Christmas season anymore but I wanted to share this. My Christmas Papers are from Maja Design, This is Gammaldags Jul, I love the Green and red combination not too bright with a Vintage look.I wonder if these will be made in a 6x6 paper pad?

I also have a tutorial on how to make your own Resin Look alike embellishments like the one I used here on top of the page. They are really pricey and I will show you how you can make your own. It's all on the Whimsy Magazine, HERE..

This is my Daughter Priscilla and this was Christmas 2010, I am Sooo behind on my Scrapbook Pages, this is what I used to do every free time I had.

I took lots of pictures of different little corners of my Lay Out. I love the little Gold centers on my flat flowers.

I added this Whimsy Stamps Sentiment which goes perfect with my Layout.

The Fun Ornaments are also from Whimsy Stamps.

The other side has these too.

This is the Full Closeup of the Resin Look Embellishment I made.

I made this cute butterfly out of flowers petals, I should have a tutorial for this one too pretty soon. These are so fun to make and so inexpensive. Most of the Materials we have them in our Craft Stash.

I love adding ribbon to these cute Jeweled Pins, they get a totally different look, if you make these yourself add some ribbon in between the jewels and you get this look.

Thank for holding up, I know I had lots of pictures for this one post, enjoy your day!!

My New Ventures

Hello friends thanks for peeking in, just a quick post to let you know what I have been up to lately.

My New Years resolution was to 1. Loose weight 2. Learn Needle work. Well I am off to a great start I have been watching what I eat, I eat more Salads and protein, Lots of water and very little or no Carbs (I love Carbs), I don't eat anything past 7:00 pm, If for any reason I am hungry past this time, I drink a Small glass of 2% Milk and Tada!!!

I love Crochet Work, Hand Made Scarfs, and basically anything you make with yarn. I have no idea how to hold a needle, but I will learn. I love the Fun colors of yarn and I could stare at them for a long time, wish men luck please :)!!

On a different note my Kids got a Puppy, Yay their own German Shepherd. Meet ODA, she is 5 weeks today, My brother owns the Mom and Dad and he gave my kids this cute little female puppy. My kids are so excited and this will help them keep busy and get off the video games and TV.
