This is a little card I made using a House Mouse stamp. They are just the cutest little stamps. This little guy has flock on his santa hat. I stamped him with adirondack pitch black and then colored him with su watercolor pencils and a blender pen. My pic does not do this card any justice. The background is a stamp from su and I colored the berries on the holly with my copic spica red glitter pen. The sentiment is also su. The ribbon is basic grey. I used always artichoke and rose red su cardstock and papertey ink white cs. He is a cutie none the less. This blogging thing is more complicated than it looks. This is supposed to be my second entry for today but for some reason it is at the top. Please bear with me while I sort out all these technical difficulties.

Hello and how is everyone on this fine fall day. It has stopped raining and the sun has come out here in the NEPA. We have nothing to complain about. I made this card last night for the MFTSC02 on SCS. I did not have enough time to add it to my blog b/c it was late.


cardstock: bazzill, su garden green and confetti cream, basic grey perhaps dp

stamps: MFT It's a jungle out there

ink: adirondack pitch black, su garden green, old olive, choc. chip, creamy caramel, summer sun, basic gray

Quick X-mas Card

Hello again. It has taken me all day to post because blogger could not upload pics. Just a quick card. I have not mastered the picture taking yet so it is not the best pic. The stamp set is Big on Christmas from SU!, all paper is from SU!, snow blossom punch and fire rhinestone brad from SU! It was a quick and easy card, possibly for mass production. Simple is sometimes best. I just love to make Christmas cards. Have a great nite. I'll post again tomorrow.

Long time no see or read

Hello everyone. I am finally back and the wedding went very well and so did our trip. I have been avoiding the blog thing mostly b/c I stalk many blogs and it has intimidated me. I feel as if my talents can't compare. I am not even close to being in the same league. However reading these blogs I learn something new everyday and it inspires me to keep creating. So I have decided that Rome wasn't built in a day and so we all must start somewhere. So here we go. My card today is my first Hanna Stamps creation. I just love this stamp set. It is so girly, perfect for teenage girls or girls my age trying to stay young despite the fact that our children are growing like weeds and will soon be taller than us. For this card I used all SU paper with the exception of the white which is from Papertrey Ink and by far surpasses Whisper White in quality and color. I paper pieced Hanna and her bags with Flowers For You DSP. The flowers are prima and the sentiment is from My Favorite Things. I made this card for my BF just cuz. This card also is for Beate's weekend sketch. I hope you enjoy. Have a stamp happy day.
