Meet Penny!

Finally got some energy back tonight and thought I would work on a very special card to me. This character is called "Penny" like my youngest daughter! If you know my daughter then you would know she is exactly like this little girl. After arguing all night I finally got her to bed or I would show her tonight. Shhhhhhhhh I will wait till the morning .... lol. Hope you all like her as much as I do!

Cough Cough :(

Dang I cant kick this cold if my life depended on it. :( I have noticed some of you are also getting sick . :( Hopefully this is not an indication of whats to come over the winter months. Hawaii sure sounds good right about now...lol. I am headed back to bed to try and get some sleep while the girls are in school but I thought I would post real quick. This is the same stamp I used last night just a bit different. Hope you enjoy. Thank you all for coming and leaving your wonderful comments they mean the world to me. :)

A Long Overdue Post!

Ok take two!!! I was just about done the post when my computer had a mind of its own *sighhhhh. This time I am going to keep it realllllllll short...lol.
I have so much to do and found no time this week to do any of it. :( I am locking myself in here this coming week and the troops will have to fend for themselves...lol. Mind you fighting a sinus cold is not helping matters :( .
Ok enough yapping!!!! LOL.
First and for most I want to thank Eulanda for the awesome Sweet Blog Award! It means the world to me. As I was fortunate enough to have it given to me I would like to pass it on to these talented ladies Heather , Shannan and Tiffaney. Enjoy ladies!

The two cards I posted were literally put together in a hurry because having the images sitting on my desk all week has been driving myself up the wall. LOL. But I have always said I will post the good with the bad! *sighhhhhh I may have to take those words back...lol.

Thank you all who come to visit my blog and I love the comments you leave! They keep me going when I feel sick like this :( .

Happy Birthday Laura!

Today is my daughters friend Laura's Birthday! She has finally hit the double digits (10 ....lol) . Ok now I feel OLD for some reason...lol. Laura and my girls became instant friends when we first moved to Bowmanville. She loves the cards I make and was hoping that she will get one today for her birthday. I had to pretend that I have not had time to make her anything and that I was going to go to a store and buy her a card. Poor thing looked so sad when I said that. She loves to read so I found it fitting to use my new stamp from "Whiff Of Joy" tittled "Melinda Reading Book" by Elisabeth Bell. I also made her one of my little notebooks decorated in the same stamp. I cant wait to see her reaction in the morning when she comes over so they girls can all walk to school together! Happy Birthday Laura and many more to come!

Thank you all for taking a peak!

When I first saw "santa's clothes a dryin' " I knew I had to get this stamp. Ohhhhh I am sooooo happy I did. Love it!!!!! The possibilities are endless. I am not sure how much I love what I did with the stamp in these two cards. I had the perfect DP I wanted to use but of course just because I want to use it does not mean I can find it....lol.

I will have to go paper hunting later today before I burst...lol.

The third card I am sharing is my very first attempt at a Elisabeth Bell stamp. I had other ideas for her when I was putting her together but got scared she did not look good so I decided to keep her simple. Thank you all for coming and viewing my creations and for leaving you inspiring comments!

Short And Sweet

It has been a long day with all the rain we have had today. :( The only advantage was that I got to stay inside and play some more......hehehehehe.

I made two new cards and actually like both of them for once...lol. But....I must admit I very rarely like what I end up with as a finished product. Today was different. I fell in love with the way I decorated the little note holder!

I was actually able to sneak away and go back to Michaels and oops I cleared them out of all the little note holders. The cashier probably thought I was spun or something...lol.

Ok like I said short and sweet my creative juices are at a high right now so I am going back to making more things now that the house is quiet. :)

Thank you all for all your kind comments since I have been back after being MIA for so long. You ladies help me keep going. :)

My Beary Best Friend!

People come and go in our lives but few leave a footprint in out hearts. Three years ago I met a very special lady online while playing euchre of all things...lol. We instantly became very good friends and talk just about everyday either online or on the phone. She is one of the few people that have come into my life that I know, no matter what or where if I needed her she would be there for me. I was fortunate enough to meet her and her husband three years ago. It was a weekend I will never forget!!!!

Deanna received a little bear from her husband a while back when she was feeling under the weather and she treasures the little guy something fierce. :)

When I saw this stamp set I knew I had to get it but did not want to make just anything. Every time I look at it I think of Deanna's little bear who she calls "Babybear". So in honour of Babybear I chose to use this little note book holder I had to make something very special. :)

I hope Deanne and Babybear like it as much as I do. :)

Thank you for looking!

Togethah Forevah!

Ok so here is my story....lol. I colored this image in yesterday and then realized I did not have any paper that I liked to go with it. (*sighhhhhhhhhh*) As a result I made the "Togetha Forevah" card that I posted yesterday. Well it was nagging at me and I knew I had to finish it somehow. This is the final result. I hope you all like it as much as I do. :) Now back to trying to create something with my images that are colored in and waiting for me ... lol. Thank you all for the amazing comments that you have been leaving me. Your all a wonderful inspiration!!! :)

Busy! Busy! Busy!

Well the girls have survived three full days at school. And the best is the school has not called for me to come and get Penny for misbehaving...lol. For those that know my youngest she is a handful. Since they have been back at school I have been trying to come up here and play and I must say I am in love with the time I get to spend up here again. There are no more sneaking in minutes here and there. WOO HOO!!!

I have a few images that I have colored in but they are still in the process of being made into something. Here are the two cards that I have been able to finish.

The first card is using "Little Witchy". I absolutely fell in love with her as soon as I saw her. Then again how can you not, she is so darn cute!

The second card I made was with "Togetha Forevah". I am actually upset with myself that I did not pick her up last week but waited for this week. :( I like the way the card turned out but it seams to be missing something. :( I had other visions of what to do with the card and I forgot to make a sketch so by the time I went to put it together I had forgotten what my original plans were . :( Well cant do much now and I still love the stamp :) . I actually have it colored in with my copics and will show you the final product as soon as I have it put together.

OK enough yapping for now I have about 20 minutes before supper time so I am going to take full advantage of my time . :) Thank you all for coming and viewing my creations and leaving all your amazing comments. :)

Happy Long Weekend!

Well ok technically its almost over but shhhhhhh don't tell my girls that. If you do they know whats coming in the morning. SCHOOL!!!! Yeah!!!!! Oh wait that's me being excited not them...lol.

First and for most I want to apologize for being a slacker in posting. Between health and kids it has been a long summer. I am looking forward to getting my "Me" time again. Second I want to say a veryyyyyyyyy special "THANK YOU" to Simone (you can view her AWESOME creations at her blog: http://www.simonecampbell.blogspot.com/) with honouring me with an award!!! I still feel like the new kid on the block and this award and the one I received not to long ago from Heather mean the world to me. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!

Now down to what I have been up to since my last post. Hmmmmm trying to create but has been difficult with the girls wanting to go here and there and everywhere but my craft room....lol. The little bit of time I was able to sneak away I was able to come up with these cards. The fishafella was for my neighbour Rick who had his birthday last week. My sister had a friends wedding yesterday and I forgot to make a card so the wedding one was totally last minute. :( She loved it, I wished I had more time. The rest are ones I made last week but never had a chance to post.
Again a very special thank you to Simone and to all of you who take the time to come and view my creations! It means a lot to me and any comments are welcomed.
