Canary Love

Hi all! Im back today with a quick card I made for a challenge over on the Saturated Canary Challenge Blog. The challenge is to use Dies and Punches,and of course a SC image. I used this free cutie Canary Love for this card,Now its no secret that I adore all of Krista's images but she's also an awesome blogger,I always enjoy reading her posts so be sure to check her out!=) Anywho..back to the card..I used a nestie to cut her out, my PTI bloom builder die for the flower and the swiss cheese punch from EK Success on the sides. The papers are Fancy Pants "Its the little things" these papers have been in my stash for quite awhile now just waiting for the perfect image..and this one fit the bill. Well, my hubby has a week off so Im gonna get back to mah boys! Have a great week!

sittin pretty

Hi all,

Its been a little bit since my last post,I just found out that I will be getting yet another surgery in early March..yay me! (can you sense the sarcasm?)So I havent been in the best of moods..but Ill elaborate more on that as time gets closer.

On a happier note, today I thought Id share a card that I made a week or so ago that I hadnt shared yet. For this card I used the Miss Anya Hats Off stamp set from TGF..Ive had this set for quite awhile and only played with it a handful of times..and since Ive been saving my moolah for the new CHA releases and Scrapbook Expo next month I've been using more of my older stamp sets. Anywho,did you notice that brick wall that Miss Anya is sitting on? I created that with my copic multi-liner (.05) and a ruler..easy peasy! The rest of the card is pretty simple..a few papers from MME Sunshine and some diecut flowers using my PTI beautiful blooms II dies along with PTI buttons.

Well, it's about time for dinner lol,I guess I better go pick up the phone and order it haha.In case you didnt know..I LOATHE cooking. Baking on the other hand is not so bad..perhaps it has something to do with the fact that baking usually means sweets..and I've got a huge sweet tooth ;) Im rambling now so I will let ya go..TTYL!

The Bluebird's Proposal

Hey guys,

I hope you are all enjoying my unofficial Valentine card series so far..Ive been having lots of fun putting them together..and this card was no may be my favorite.
Please excuse the crap in the background of the photo..I didnt have the greatest lighting to take this at night and just couldnt wait to post it for all to see.

Today we catch a glimpse of the hope in a brave little bluebird's heart..the hope that this Valentine's Day, he wont have to be so lonely. And this gorjuss little girl looks as if she is contemplating it rather seriously.

For todays card I wanted the image to really speak for itself,so I kept the layout really simple and the colors very muted/monochromatic. I used several papers and stamps from my stash, and some buttons from papertrey ink to add a touch of cuteness (as if the image wasnt cute enough) You can watch the process of how this card came together HERE

I still have a few more ideas up my sleeve for Valentines day so stay tuned! I will catch ya lata girlies.

Mad About You

Good Evening!

Sorry its taken me a little longer to post today,but better late than never right? So for today's card I used this adorable Mad Hatter image that you can find HERE Ive always had a thing for the mad hatter..and not just because of Johnny Depp (though he did help the situation tremendously hehe) but because he is so quirky. So this image instantly caught my eye when going through my stamps for this series. You can watch the whole process of this card HERE

I know this is short and sweet,but then again when arent my posts short right? I hope you enjoyed todays card and tomorrow I will have some Gorjuss goodness for ya! ;) later!

Loads of Love

Hi all,

Yet another Valentine card for ya today..I went through all of my stamps and chose stamps that may not be inteded for Valentines but are easily adapted to any occasion..I came across this Penny black "Christmas Express" set that I bought earlier in the year to make Christmas cards with..and well, never got around to. So I thought it was high time to ink this little cutie up. I used acetate for the windows to give it a more realistic look..I love how it appears little Mimi is behind the glass,yout could also use glossy accents for a similar effect. The papers are from Echo Park Yours Truly paper pad and some other scraps from Basic Grey and Stampin Up. I used the Martha Stewart confettie heart punch for the hearts and Studio G $1 alpha stamps for the sentiment. A little stickles and twine and I called it good. You can watch the process HERE I did this vid a bit differently because I have had some complaints that people haven't been able to watch my vids with music in them on their ipads or abroad..not sure why but YT isnt letting me allow it :( So I decided to do a voice-over instead and hopefully that fixes the problem.

Thanks for stopping by..ttyl!

I Heart You

Good Morning Everyone,

Well Im still on a Valentine kick..I was going to do a card series but for some reason when I label something I tend to think of it as a chore and dont want to do it I decided just to post valentine cards as I felt like making them..Ive got quite a few more in mind too. But for todays card I used the CC Designs "lulu big heart" digi stamp and Amy R Heart-y sayings from I will admit I have a hard time coloring brown I tend to shy away from it but since I chose the Bo Bunny Crazy Love just seemed inevitable,and for that reason I didnt want to film myself coloring her. But you can see the whole card process by clicking on the picture.

Thanks for stopping by and I will see ya soon!=)

You can see the process here:

I used this adorable "Cupig" digi stamp from and papers from Echo Park "Yours Truly" The sketch I found online..Ive been trying to step outside my comfort zone when it comes to sketches..just to change it up a bit=) I used several spellbinder circle dies for the circles and a few cupid punches from a punch I found at walmart for .97! I used Diamond stickles on the wings and arrow and also added some glossy accents to his little nose to make it appear a little wet..which of course don't show up in the photo =( You can watch the whole process here:

Happy New Year

Happy New Year to you all! I know Im a couple days late but Ive been super busy this last week. I made this card to start off my new years resolution..which is to make all of my family Birthday cards and actually get them sent out! lol..Im really bad about that. I dont usually make resolutions,simply because of my lack of follow-through but this one is more likely to happen so I thought..why not. Ive used another one of my new Gorjuss girls..this one is called "Waiting" She is super sweet and is great for pretty much any type of card..this time I made her a Birthday girl for my MIL normally I reach for bright and cheery colors for birthdays but this time I was really feeling the fall I used the Basic Grey Pyrus and Max & Whiskers 6x6 papers.I also busted out my new PTI Beautiful Blooms II dies for the flowers. The sentiment is a mix between Amy R Birthday Sentiments (Happy Birthday) and Lawn Fawn Quinns ABCs. Thanks for stoppin by and I will talk at ya soon!=) Later Gators!
