I know, ya'll must think I'm crazy posting so much in one day. But this card just excited me and I had to share. I actually was thinking about this card last night in bed, when I was supposed to be sleeping & not thinking about "card" ideas, but I don't sleep much anyway--LOL! Anyone that knows me, knows how much I love animals (I'm the proud momma of 2 dogs & 4 cats). I have a new puppy, Baylee (she'll be 1 in June) and she hates baths, which made me think of creating this card. I love this new set I ordered from Close to My Heart called Puppy Love (I also ordered Purr.fect it's kitty cousin) and thought this puppy face would look really cute encased in bubbles. I created my own template for the washtub card and punched bubbles of all sizes with my SU punches. I outlined the washtub with my grayglitter markers from American Crafts (love em') and added bubblies with Liquid Applique . The handles are a pair of clips I've had for awhile, not sure of the brand. I just think it turned out so cute--I promise I won't post anymore until tomorrow.
Have a great night!!
I made this card today for Lauren Meader's sketch challenge. I have had this SU set for awhile, but had yet to ink it up. I love the colors in this. The bugs have stickles on their wings to make them shine. I embossed the blue with a cuttlebug embossing folder. The striped paper is by Diecuts with a View and the solids are from SU. Cute card for a boy, I think...
If you visit my blog regulary or visit my gallery on SCS you will quickly find out that I love , love my "bellas" from Stamping Bellas. I think they are so much fun to create with. I actually started this card with this patterned paper from K&Company's Berry Sweet line. I loved the color combo. I colored my billboardabella with glitter markers (American Crafts) and SU markers. I added a little bling with stickles--my girls have to have their bling!! The flowers are from Prima and I cut out my images with my "new" Nestabilities that I love. I finally was able to get some from Paper Trey Ink, when they released them at midnight the other day. Wheww.. now I want more! LOL
Good afternoon! I hope everyone is having a great Saturday. I'm having a stamping day, since my daughter is at a friend's for the night and my son & DH are out having a "father & son" day. My craft room is a disaster and so far I've finished off 2 cherry cokes and 5 cards!
I was thinking about my inspiration earlier and thought I'd share my thoughts. I have been stamping and scrapbooking on and off for over 6 years. I finally have a beautiful, dedicated hobby room and I've really rediscovered my passion for stamping. I had never been on a blog until 2 months ago when I discovered Lauren Meader's blog and I've been hooked ever since. Seeing other's stamp art has really got my creative juices flowing and kicked my butt into gear to stretch my imagination and art. I love seeing and learning about everyone's stamp art--I think it's such an inspiration to see women dedicated to their passion and share it with others. I hope someone will find my art inspirational and light their passion too.
Have a great weekend!

This is a fun card I made using The Cats Pajamas stamps--I think they're so cute--and of course I love anything with a kitty or dog on it. The paper is from Imaginisce--called Mayan Nights and I love it because the colors are all black & white. The pink paper is from SU and I stamped it with a polka dot stamp in black ink. The sentiment is from SU too. Just fun!!
Hi everyone! I'm still trying to figure out this blogging thing--slowly but surely my blog will evolve. I wish I could just have someone come and help me with it.
I am letting it be known that I am a scrapbook product addict. I read others blogs and see new products and have to have it. I'm not sure when I'll have enough, if ever, much to my husband's dismay. My biggest concern every month is what he'll have to say about the Amex bill that comes-LOL! I'm sure there are other "addicts" out there--I'd love to hear from you.
I am currently working on some swaps that I have signed up for. Sometimes I feel so much pressure to make sure my swaps are perfect and unique that I get "scrappers block". I have been passing by my craft room all day waiting for "divine" inspiration...I'm still waiting. I will go in and play after the kids get home from school, so we'll see. I am also a soda addict, with Cherry Coke being my fave. I can't create w/o it--I'm trying to cut back, but not much luck so far. I will be taking in a big glass soon & we'll see if my creativity kicks in--LOL!!

Hi everyone! This is my first blog post--I love reading other blogs and thought it was about time to have one myself. I seem to have a lot to say, but not always someone to say it too--or at least understand me. I love to stamp and papercraft and will have samples and more in the days to come. My very loving husband and kids don't always get my passion, but they are always supportive (except when the Amex bill comes anyway).
I hope you will join me on my new adventure and leave me comments--I love to hear what everyone thinks.
