I made this one last week and hadn't posted yet. I just had to get in one more fall card, I really love this image. I stamped it twice and popped it up. It is colored with Prismacolor pencils and OMS, and I added a little glitter with my Sakura pen. That's it today, thank you for taking a peek, have a great day. :)

JustRite Snowman

Quick post today. I made this last night using the snowman from JustRite's Vintage Christmas set. Isn't he cute? I used this sweet tree skirt as my inspiration.

He is colored with Prismacolor pencils and his scarf is paper pieced. I used a little liquid applique for some texture on the snow. Pretty quick and easy.

Also, I have a little thank you blog candy this week here, good luck! Thank you for stopping by. :)

Yep, another CAS card, lol. This one uses stamps from Verve's Dream Big set. A couple of buttons and some twine, quick and easy.

And I have a little surprise, a little birthday blog candy for one of my blogging friends, just a little thank you for stopping by and supporting me. Since today is my birthday, I am giving this sweet Birthday Centers 1-5/8" set from JustRite Stampers along with a clear stamper. No hoops to jump through, you don't have to be a follower and you don't have to post on your blog. Just add your name to the linky, if you don't have a blog, email me and I will add your name. I love to read so if you have read a good book(s) lately, let me know in the comments, I need some new stuff to read. :) The candy will close on midnight December 27 and I will choose a random winner and post on December 28. If I don't hear from the winner by December 31, I will pick a new winner on January 1. Thank you so much, and good luck! :)

Thank You Helmar!

Yesterday I received an amazing package of goodies from Helmar. I won their Twitter contest last week, and I had to make a card this morning with my fun new stuff! I was still in the clean and simple mood and used this BEAUTIFUL stamp set from Unity, Happy Everything. I used Helmar ZAPDOTS to pop up the image panel and Helmar 450 Quick Dry Adhesive for the ribbon, this is my go to glue. I love that it dries so quickly, that's the worst thing for a crafter - having to wait for part of your project to dry before moving on to the next part, lol!

That's it, pretty quick and easy. Thank you for stopping by, happy Friday! :)


Happy Friday! I wanted to post a couple of CAS Christmas cards this morning. I used this sweet little Joy Plain Jane from Verve. A little coloring and little scoring, and done! I made up a few of these quick and simple cards to send out this year. Well, that's it for now, thank you for taking the time to stop by, have a fantastic weekend! :)

You Rock

Yesterday was my baby girl's birthday, it really is amazing how quickly time goes by. She plays guitar so when I saw this Kenny K digi stamp, I knew it was perfect for her, she loves fuzzy boots, check out the boots on this girl!

I know it's blurry, but I wanted to try to get the look of the boots. I used Sparkly Fluff, it looks kinda flat, but they are sparkly and fluffy IRL :) She is colored with Prismacolor pencils and OMS, and she has a little glitter on her eyeshadow from my Sakura gel pen. This was my first attempt at coloring hair, I tried to get the highlights and shadows, but it didn't really work out, lol. The sentiment is from Inkadinkado and I love those little music note brads I picked up on clearance a couple of years ago, so cute! That's it! Thank you so much for taking the time to stop by, have a great week. :)
