Heartfelt Thanks


I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas!! I got tons of fun scrappy goodies and just had to play with some of my new gorjuss stamps that I got last week..(I havent been scrappin a whole lot since surgery.) For this card I used the brand new Gorjuss "I Love You Little Rabbit" stamp..I was saving this for an easter/spring card but I just couldnt help but ink her up..she's just so dang cute=) I also used my new Build A Bloom die from I am so in love with this die right now!! The papers are from MME sunshine paper pack and the sentiment is from Amy R Thank You sentiments. I wanted to say a big THANK YOU to all of you for your prayers and well wishes during this last week for my surgery,it really means so much to have all of you(most of which Ive never met) saying a prayer for me! consider this your virtual 'thank you' card from me to you!=) Well, I've gotta run and start dinner for the fam..have a great night!=)

Snow flurries

Hello Everyone,

Im back today with a little card I made with this adorable image from Sweet November Stamps..You can find her and her Fairwee friends at Now I am a sucker for fairies so when I seen these little winter fairwees I just had to have them! This little gal is " snowflurry Emaline" Isnt she the sweetest!? I must admit I am a little jealous of her snow..we are 5 days from Christmas and there is no snow to be seen in the forecast..:( I used papers from the MME Be Merry paper pad,punched a few snowflakes stamped my sentiment and called it good..of course the photo doesnt really pick up on the stickles I added to her either..I also used some tinsel-y string I had to add more sparkle=) This card was super quick to put together..and made for a great Thank You card.

Surgery is early tomorrow morning so not sure when I'll be back but if I dont talk at ya before Christmas..I hope you all have a wonderful one!=) toodles

a little birdie told me...

Hey Guys,
I wanted to give you a quick update on my surgery,I have been kinda busy since my ppt on Monday..I actually got all of my Christmas shopping/wrapping done in one day,its so much fun to shop for little boys and hubby and I did have to play with a few of their toys before wrapping them lol. Anyway, my surgery has been scheduled for Tuesday Dec 20th,Im hoping I can avoid getting sick until then..alot of bugs going around here lately and thankfully no one in our family has caught anything lets hope it stays that way!
I do have a quick card to share with you too..As some of you may already know there has been yet another Gorjuss stamp release recently and well of course I HAD to get some of them..I am still waiting on the rest of them to get here, but I got this one from so it came a little sooner .This stamp called "Bluebird's Proposal" I absolutely adore this image..her heart-print stocking just make me swoon!! I used some papers from MME grateful collection..I made my own rolled flowers with some of the papers also..I really love doing that because they always match perfectly=) I sewed crazily around the edges to add to the whimsy and added some pearls with my viva decor pen. Thanks for stoppin by and I'll be sure to keep you updated on how everything goes. Have a fantastic day!

Happy Birthday to You!

Hi all,

Sorry it's been awhile since I've posted you may have heard I have been having issues with my gallbladder recently and just haven't gotten much done in the way of crafting. I go to the Doc tomorrow to schedule my surgery to have it removed..I never thought I'd be so eager to have surgery, but at this point "All I want for Christmas is my GB out" hahaha. Anywho..on to the fun stuff.

I needed a birthday card for my SIL and have been dying to color up this Birthday Gretel digi from I got her awhile back but my printer went out so I am just now getting around to coloring her. Its a little hard to tell in the photo but I used glossy accents on the balloons to make them a little more realistic and also some diamond stickles on her wings and the candle flame. The sentiment is from Amy R Birthday Sentiments and the papers are from MME Life of the Party. I added some sassafras flowers and pink baker's twine to finish it off. Thanks for stopping by and I shall see you soon! Have a great day!=)
