Pretty in pink...

Greetings ya'll, hope your all having a great week?!! I'm enjoying the fact, my kids are out of school (have been for a little while now). I'm still on our normal schedule, though I don't have to rush in the morning to get everyone out the door!! I've also been enjoying are wonderful weather! We are in the 90's and our humidty is high....I LOVE.LOVE.LOVE it!!! :)

Now for my card. I'm sharing a card I made back a little while ago. It was for a contest or something of that nature. I really can't remember!! :) Oh well, enjoy!

Good Luck

Greetings ya'll, Happy Monday!! I just wanted to share a quick little card I did, for the 'Paper Crafts magazine Gallery Idol 2012'! The open auditions end far I only entered this one, not sure if I'll get time to whip up another card or two?! If you haven't checked it out, you should!! Here's the link for you Gallery Idol 2012. :)

Okay, so here's my card!

Granted the weather I have to work with today...I think the lighting I had, worked pretty good?!....For my card I chose to keep it fairly simple, as I do with most of my cards. I used my Spellbinders die for the flower (Shapeabilities-Anemone Flower Topper). A nice light green button, that I happened to find in my button stash! And added a couple extra little touches...some bakers twine and pearls! :)

Thank you for stopping by and have a great day!!

So sorry...I've missed you!

Greetings ya'll!! I am sooo sorry for not having anything to post lately! My family and I just had company over for 3 weeks!!! They just left, this past Tuesday! I think I'm going to have a two week limit, for anyone that wants to stay with us...3 weeks is just way too long! For now, I'm trying to catch up on everything and get things back to normal for us!

By all means, I haven't forgot about my blog! I been thinking in the back of my head, I need to make a card and asap!...So, while I wish I had a card or something more to share today...I figure this written post will be enough and understanding to many.

Hopefully, by the end of this weekend (or before) I will have a card and maybe even more, to share!

Thank you for stopping by and have a great day/weekend!! :)

Happy Winter!

Hey everyone! I just wanted to quickly share a little set of cards and a gift tag I did! I submitted all of them to be published but sadly, none were chosen. Though, once again, it gives me the chance to share them with you!!

square card.

Kept this one standard. I couldn't figure out, if I liked it squared or like this better.

gift tag.

As you can see, I kept everything simple and white! To get my branch and leaves glittered, I ran my cardstock with my die, through my machine. I then used clear double sided adhesive sheets and placed it over my cut out and glittered! It was a fun little set to make, while at the same time, being a little messy with all that glitter! That's the only downfall to glitter for I wanna "sparkle" for the next day or two?

Thank you for stopping by and enjoy your day! :)

Bazzill Card Shoppe Giveaway!!!

Happy Friday everyone!!! I am so excited for today...I have a giveaway!!! :) So, a few weeks ago (maybe a little less), I received an email from Emily Waters with Bazzill Basics. It was totally unexpected and to tell you the truth, I almost deleted it (thinking it was junk)! I am soooo glad I didn't do that! In the email, was a wonderful opportunity...a chance to try out some great cardstock and do a giveaway on my blog! And I must say again, "Thank you Emily"!

Okay, so I got to try out a multipack of Bazzill Card Shoppe cardstock!! I will tell you, this is some really great cardstock! Were talking 100lbs weight and will stand up, to just about anything!! I was truly impressed! So, I played around with some things and had so much fun doing it! :)

The colors are so nice....

It comes in 8.5 x 11....which is perfect for cards and other paper goodies.

I even managed to make a cute little box...

I did try several different things with the cardstock. I inked it up, glittered it, flocked it, put glue on it, crimped it, ran it through my die cutting machine....hmm...I really cant remember everything I did!! lol :) I was just having FUN!!

So, now for the giveaway.

 All you have to do is: Leave a comment on my blog and tell me what you would do with the Bazzill Card Shoppe cardstock! You will have Friday May 4 until Sunday May 6(midnight) for a chance to win. I will randomly pick ONE winner, to win a 28 multipack of the Bazzill Card Shoppe!! (I will announce the winner, Tuesday May 7 on my blog!) :) And feel free, to click on any of the above links or this one, to go to Bazzill Basics.

UPDATE!!: Instead of ending on May 6 at midnight. I will run it for the whole week! So, Sunday May 13 at midnight, is the end date! I will announce the winner on Tuesday May 15!!

Thank you for stopping by and have a wonderful weekend! :)
