One Of A Kind

Hey Everybody,

Hope you all are keeping snug and warm.'s cold outside here this morning.... 36 degrees!  Now that may not be a big deal for some folks, but I'm in Florida.  We usually do best at 70 or higher. :)

So on with my card....

One Of A Kind

I may not be getting better, but I'm getting a little quicker.  I've been wanting to make a twisted easel card, and this one just kind of came together...I love it when that happens.

The image is called Deevonne by Hannah Lynn, at Crafts and Me.  My good friend Dana of Dana's Inspirations did a fabulous tutorial using Prisma Pencils (using the Forever Rose Image from Crafts and Me), and although I colored my image with my ProMarkers I was still able to learn so much from watching her.  She also has other tutorials that are a MUST see.

The beads and wire flowers were inspired by Leanne of LuvLee Scrappin.  I actually found her on YouTube.  You can find her tutorial here, but I assure you, you'll find many more that you'll just love!  The beads were bought at Hobby Lobby, and like a nummy - I threw away the package before I looked to see who they were by.  The gold leaves are from some sequin that I got at my local thrift store.

Other mediums used:

Paper; Cream color is from my stash, BP, pink frame and sentiment BP/ are from DCWV, called The Preppy Princess Stack (one of my selections from Michael's 50% off sale).  Brown and dark tan papers are also from my stash.

Dies; Martha Stewart border punch, Nestibilities (picture frame), and scallop/type scissors for the sentiment.

Ribbon; White from my stash, that I colored with my PM.

Glitter; Used on the little star on her shoulder, came from my local thrift store.

Sentiment was made in Paint Shop Pro.

Thank you so much for taking the time out of your day, and stopping by.  Wishing everyone a safe and Happy New Year!

Blue Without You

Hey everybody,

For me, it's about 12:30 pm-ish on Christmas and as I post my card, I wonder  what all my blogger buddies are doing at this time - on their time zone.  Whatever it is, whether you're already "snug as a bug", enjoying time (and hopefully a great meal) with family and/or friends, or frantically trying to help Santa get those last minute "things" done......I pray many things for you, but most of all I pray that you are loved and I wish you double happiness in the upcoming year.

Blue Without You

This adorable Krista Smith image, from Saturated Canary is called Nikki, and I've colored her with my ProMarkers.  Don't you just love these images?  I totally adore them all.  So much so, that I have a major hard time picking which one to buy next - although I do plan to snag each and every one of them!

Other mediums used:
Dies: Michaels (I'm starting to like this place) had a 50% off sale, and I was able to pick up a couple dies (Spellbinders Nestabilities, and Sizzix Sizzlits) that I used on this card, along with the Spellbinders Borderabilities that I won from Karen's blog (Feline Creative). 

Papers:  The white paper is from Colorbok, and the blue and gold is from K & C Company.  The striped paper (I used the Sizzix die on) are from Follow Your Heart, called My Mind's Eye (another item from Karen's candy).

Flowers:  I made the rose and flowers, using the left over white paper, and some distress ink.  I had some pearls in my stash, so I used some needle nose pliers to cut them in half (that was fun :S), and placed them in the center of the flowers.  The tiny blue roses were made out of some skinny ribbon, also from my stash.  

Embellishment, Ribbon & Sentiment: The heart is from Dress It Up, Ribbon from my stash and made some simple leaves to go with the bottom right flowers, and the sentiment was made in Paint Shop Pro.

Joy to the World

Hey Everybody,

Just in case any of you will be on vacation and away from your pc, I want to with everyone of you a very Merry Christmas.

My next card was inspired by my good buddy  Sarah of Aunt Bee's Pickles. 
She used this same stamp "Old Wheel", combined with a stamp called "Winter Star" both from Doodle Pantry.  Being the country gal that I am, I just had to make this card. 

On my card, I combined the "Old Wheel" Doodle Pantry stamp with one of the stamps from my old shop that was part of a Christmas horseshoe, coloring them with my ProMarkers, and adding a little distress ink around the edges. 

The star was made with A/C tape, folded for a 3-D effect, and partly colored with promarkers to add gold to the silver.  The Joy/Lasso rope embellishment was made with some gold wire that originally had happy birthday letters hanging from it.  I just removed those and made my lasso rope.  The beads were from Hobby Lobby, and I just used some wire to make the word
Joy, adding the beads as I went.  I used Liquid Applique and glitter for the snow.  The ribbon is from good ole Walmart, and I made a little bow from the left over lasso wire, gluing it with hot glue.  The papers are by Elizabeth Brownd/K & C Company.  The sentiment is from the song "Joy To The World", and was made in Paint Shop Pro. 

Thank you so much for taking the time out of your day, and stopping by.

Polka Dots

Hi Everybody,

Hope you all are having a great weekend, and having fun getting ready for Christmas.  Although I haven't got to use it yet, my Christmas came early when I found the Cuttlebug at 40% off.  I do, however, have it out of the box and sitting where I can look at it.

This time around, I decided to step away from making a Christmas card just to keep those learning juices flowing.  The stamp is called Ivy by Krista Smith of Saturated Canary.

I wanted to try my hand at making some paper roses, and found a video from Jennies Barn on youtube.  She used a cutting machine, but I can honestly say they are super easy to cut out by hand.  The white leaves were also easy to make,  and I just added a little distressing on the edges.  The pearls were made by gluing them to fishing line with a glue gun.  The bow was made from some ribbon from my stash as was the white lace and thin ribbon, and the pink papers came from a collection called "Scrap Happy Pinks" by Suzanne McNeill Designs, and used Liquid Applique (for the cotton balls) on her leg wraps.  The sentiment was made in Paint Shop Pro, and the little rhinestones are from my local thrift store.

**I apologize for the quality of the image.  It's funny how one time the photos turn out great, and others don't.

Thank you so much for taking time out of your day and stopping by.

Good News, and some REALLY good news!

Hey everybody,

Hope you all are having a super week.  Just wanted to share a couple of really great things that happened for me this week.

Today, I took Mom out for some shopping, and we stopped at Michaels to look at easels for her.  Low and behold, they were having a 40% and 50% off sale, and I finally got a Cuttlebug!!  That's the good news.

The really good news (that I'm just totally stoked about) is, Tuesday I completed my first dog from start to finish.  My good buddy/trainer/mentor/boss, Kelly, did have to guide me to a really cute grooming finish, but I did it!  AND, starting Monday, I am officially a groomer/apprentice and on the payroll!!  Yippie!!

Here are a few pictures of this darling little Lhasa Apso, Kirby.  She was as sweet as she looks, and a great dog for me.  We would have gotten some of the completed pictures of her, but Kelly's smart phone went dead.

Thanks for stopping by.

From Our House

Hey Everybody,

Hope you all had a fabulous week, and have been enjoying your weekend.  Another pretty active week for myself, but ALL good stuff.  My dog grooming trainer has upped the antie, and I got to do some more detailed grooming last week.  She and the owners are very happy with my progress, and if this next week goes as planned I should be on their payroll by the next week!  So, please keep me in your prayers that all goes well.

This week I decided simple is a good thing, and chose an image from DDS that Mom created called "Christmas Door" (one of my favorites).  I colored it with Promarkers, and did a little ink distressing around the edges and used a large needle to create border punch - I think that's how you say it :-)

Other art mediums used:

Papers; Scrap N Tubes Christmas Papers 7, and white card stock by Colorbok
Ribbon & Pearl made my stash
Bell; From a package of mini bell ornaments, and I actually cut it in half, so that it would lay nicely on the card.
Glitter on the ornaments; From my local thrift store - wish you could see it better.
Snow; Liquid Applique
Sentiment; DDS and was made in Paint Shop Pro

Like A Child

Good Morning Everybody!  I hope everyone had a fabulous Thanksgiving, and enjoying the last of the weekend.  It's been a really busy week for me, as we had two families to celebrate Thanksgiving with.  In addition, I've just been running crazy with sick animals (praying and hoping all is well now), dental appts. w/ hubby, Dr.s' w/ Mom, and then there's the grooming.  Needless to say, I'm tickled to finally get to post my next card, and spend some time visiting my onlilne friends.

Napkin Fold Card

I first seen the "Napkin Fold Card" on my good friend Wendy's blog, and you can go here to see her tutorials.  Thank you Wendy for sharing your knowledge.  The image by Mo Manning (called Urchin with Bird) - is colored with ProMarkers, and I just love the kindness Mo brings out in this adorable little girl's eyes.

Other art mediums used:

Snowflakes and trim; "Starburst" punch by McGill, and Eyelet Lace border and corner punch is by Martha Stewart.  The glitter I used on the snowflakes came from my local thrift store - no idea the name.

Snowflake stick pin - I made with pearls, jewerly wire, and the center piece (believe it or not) is a bead cap that I flattened out - all from my mom's mine...snicker.

Ribbon - Blue "Let it Snow" from the dollar store (I love that place!), and the white from my stash.

Pretty in Lavender

Hi Everybody,

Hope you all had a great week, and are ready for the weekend.  It's been a little crazy for me, as I've been taking mom to the dentist, my little dog (Opie) to the vet, or picking up supplies for one thing or the other.  Plus I've been working hard at learning to groom, so I too am glad to see the weekend here.

This card was inpired by a card by Wendy of lollydollycrafts.  You can see the card she created further down on the page on the link to her blog.  Wendy also has tutorials, and trust me when I tell you, just browsing her blog is worth the trip!

I stressed a bit over this card for a couple of reasons.  One, I so wanted to cut the paper similar to Wendy's card, but I don't have a cutting machine.  Two, the paper (not sure of the manufacturer) was part of a gift package, and I only had one copy and didn't want to mess it up. . . gulp!  I practiced a bit on some plain paper and simplified the cut a little, but I still was almost in a panic before I even got started.  Nevertheless, I managed to get through it....whew! 

The stamp, by Saturated Canary, is called "Haley Harley", and was colored with Promarkers.  I made the leaves out of some ribbon, and made the stick pin just using a simple pearl.  The bows were made from ribbon and lace, and the beads and flowers are from my stash.  The rhinestones I got from good ole Walmart.

Now, I think my photographing is getting better (thanks to my dear sweet husband buying me a better camera), but the odd thing about this image is the pinkish flowers are not pink, they are a lavender/purple color.  I have no idea why I could not get the picture right, and may end up with a new photo upload, if I can get it figured out soon.

With all that said, thank you for taking time out of your day and stopping by.

Thank You Patti

Hi Everybody,

Hope all of you had a great weekend, and best wishes to all of you throughout the week.

This post is something I should have put up immediately upon notification, and the truth is I just wasn't thinking.  Chaulk it up to being a first maybe.

A very sweet lady, Patti, of Cherish Each Precious Day was having a blog candy contest last week.  I had learned about Patti through The Outlawz, and stopped by to say hi when I found out about the contest.  The prize was for a magazine called "CardMaker", featuring Christmas Reflections.  I had already been racking my brain for ideas, so I jumped at the chance to win and signed up.  Thinking I probably didn't win, I stopped by on the day of announcement to congratulate the winner, and low and behold I won!!

That all being said, this really is to thank Patti for having the contest.  If you get the chance, stop by her blog.  She's extremely talented, and a wonderful person to get to know.

Drummer Boy

Hi everybody.  Before mentioning my latest card, I want to send out thoughts and prayer to all of those that have been affected by the Hurricane Sandy.  We, here in Florida, can sure relate, so my heart goes out to all of you.

 Drummer Boy

Well this card is a first for me in a couple of ways.  It's my first Christmas card design, not only this year, but ever!, and it's with my first purchased stamp.  I've admired Mo Manning's art for a long time, so it was exciting to get to work with one of her stamps.  This one is called "Shall I play for you", and was easy and a joy to color with my Promarkers. 

I punched holes around the stamped and red paper, and hand stitched the zigzag with some embroidery thread from my stash.  I did a search for the music to "The Drummer Boy", and printed part of it out on some pale cream paper, added a darker shade behind it, and distressed the edges with my scissors.  Again, I didn't add a sentiment to this one, but that may change.

All the paper (except the white), and the embellishment came from my local thrift store.  Thanks so much for taking time out of your day, and stopping by.

Footnote: This is the 2nd upload I did of this card.  Being totally frustrated with how my photography is going, I did more research than I care to, and asked some "great" friends for some advice.  In the end, I found a free photography editing program that is pretty much upload and choose auto.  Please let me know what you think of the clarity on this image.  All critiquing and help is MUCH appreciated.

Thank You For Carrying Me

Hi Everybody,

Hope your weekend is going great!  I got to go learn some more about grooming, and officially work my first day as a groomer the first week in November...Yippie!

Easel Card

This card was inspired by the challenge at "Stampin Sisters in Christ".  I wasn't even sure if I was going to get it completed, as one thing or another went wrong, and before it was over I had a major headache.  However, I was determined!  My first major issue was the horse.  A dapple grey horse has to be one of my favorite colors, mostly because of how prominent the dapples are - that was my challenge, and I hope you are able to see them in this card. 

The image is called "Cowgirl & Horse", and colored with promarkers, and Polychromos pencils (black area on horse).  The silver frame corners were made out of aluminum foil (tutorial by Scraps & Things), and the horse shoes were made with a/c duck tape.  For the life of me, I can't seem to find the tutorial on this one, but I will keep looking.  The papers came from a haul I got at my local thrift store, and I made the sentiments in Paint Shop Pro. 

Thank you so much for taking the time to stop by.

Across The Miles

Hi Everybody,

Hope everyone had a fantastic weekend.  The weather here in Florida has been incredibly beautiful the last couple of days.  It's been either hot, rainy, or both.  To say the least,  it's nice to have some cooler weather with lots of sunshine.

I started this card last Thursday, but only had a little time each day to work on it.  The good news is, I got to go work a couple of days (as an apprentice groomer) with a young girl I've been anxious to learn from.  I was so excited, I could hardly contain myself.  The not so good news is, one of my little dogs as been diagnosed with diabetes, and getting him back and forth to the vets has been time consuming.  He is doing better, and we are praying that he continues to improve.

I titled this card "Across The Miles", and did not add a sentiment to it, because I will be trying to help a very good friend raise money to adopt a precious little girl.  I hope to be telling you all about her in the very near future.

The stamp is called "You've Got Mail".  I used promarkers, and wanted to try and give the mailbox a weathered/vintage look (I hope I succeeded).  I made the little roses out of some yellow ribbon, that I first partly colored to imitate fall roses.  I used hot glue and thread to attach them to the card.  I'm not sure why, but the flowers on the right are not lavender as they appear to be in this  The papers are called "Homestead", and I cut out the design around the image, and on the coordinating paper behind the image.  I made the postage stamp tag in Paint Shop Pro, using a dingbat font called "Penmanship Birds".

I hope you like the card, and thanks for stopping by.

New Baby

Hey everybody.  Hope everyone is doing great this Tuesday.  I've completed another card, and this one I made for one of my best friend's new grandbaby.  Check out that name!  I started out with the idea of making another fold card, but it just wasn't meant to be, so I opted to keep it simple.

I'm still struggling with using a camera, so I do apologize for the image lighting being so dark.  I'm working on building a light box, and I am determined to get this camera thing all figured out!  Any advice is much appreciated.

The stamp is a DDS stamp called "Sleeping Infant", and I've colored him with Promarkers.  I cut out the frame by hand (by the grace of God) with an exacto knife, and did a back stitch around it.  I made the little bow from some scrap ribbon.  The papers (which weren't that great to work with) came from good ole Walmart.  They're from Colorbok, and have a texture, although you probably can't see it from this image.  The sentiment (from - I made in Paint Shop Pro, and is on the inside of the card.  I tried to get a shot of it with the camera, but for some reason, the image kept getting this fluoresent shadow/glow "thing" in it and looked terrible.  So I had to settle for showing you the finished .jpg

Webby Greetings

Hi all,

I was suppose to have gotten this posted yesterday, but by the time I got the LO like I "halfway" wanted it, there was no sun  I'm not much for celebrating Halloween, but I thought it was a great subject for my next card.  The fold is called a "Swing Fold".  The image I'm using is called "Goofy Spider" from my old shop Digi Doodle Shop.  He's colored with ProMarkers.  I made the sentiments in PSP, and drew the spider web.  The paper is of what was given to me as a gift. 

I'm still trying to get the hang of this picture taking.  As it stands, my pictures only seem to come out good in the day time.  I guess it's all in the lighting.  Who knows, maybe I've been good enough this year to get a nice camera....but I'm not counting on

My First Card Project

Hi all,

Gosh I don't know what to start with 

Okay, first things first.  I finally got the PSP tutorials started.  Most, unless requested will be basic stuff.  Just check out the on to my card.

Those of you that know me, know that a while back I attempted to color some stamps.  That's what got me to making this personal blog in the first place.  It was only a few times of trying, that I gained a whole new respect for all card designers, and worked even harder to make stamps more "user friendly", and leaving the stamp coloring and card designing to the pros. 

Since then, Mom and I decided to close up shop for her health reasons and (at the time) my lack of time to draw, because of a p/t job which (btw) has now come to an end.....thank goodness I might add.  

So now, while I am in the process of learning and pursuing a new career as a dog groomer (which I'm totally exstatic about), with no shop to run and to much time on my hands, I decided to give the card making another go.  Might as well put those markers to use right?...right.

At any rate, I got busy watching tutorials on youtube, and reading other helpfuls everywhere and anywhere I could find.  I've gone through a lot of paper, but I can now see why so many of you do this...what fun!!  As a matter of fact, I think I might have went a little crazy, as I colored six stamps in a week.  Once I got done with them, I had to figure out what kind of card to make with them.

As it turns out, one of my best friend's granddaugher has been having a couple of not so good days at her day care.  So, I took the stamps and made a little incentive project for her.  I have no idea what to call it, but she loves to put things on the frig.  As you'll see, I made a double pocket (I think that's what's called).  I then cut the images out, put a backing on them, then a magnet with a positive saying on the back of each, and then laminated them...she is  When she does something good at school, she gets to put one of these images on her frig.

Now, I have to add, that card making is not the only thing new to me.  I'm not to great at taking pictures.  Plus the camera is new (to me), but I did the best I could at this point.  Reading tutorials on this as well.

I do apologize for the long post, but I had a lot to tell.  Thanks so much for taking the time to have a looksie.  If any of you know of some favorite tutorials on taking pictures and card coloring/designing, by all means let me know.

With ALL that said, here are the images of my first posted card project.

The paper and ribbons are from gifts, so I have no idea where they came from.  The images were colored with ProMarkers, but with too many colors to mention.
