Okay so I made this card for a family member and someone suggested that I post it on "LINK UP  For Pink" since it meet the requirements. I will have to say, I am glad she(Trina) from SOC sent me that way.

Sorry I have been missing in action for a while. Life has been more than hectic. Here are thank you goodies for my son's "Going to the Navy" going away party. I coordinated the invites with the favors. I will have to say that these "goodies" took my a long time to make, simply because  they are bittersweet. I am proud of our son but sad at the same time. He has less than two weeks before he actually leaves for the military.... :-(   I am looking for more party ideas...i am expecting close to 100 people( yes...100 people) at my home in less than two weeks....HELP!!!!!

This was a quick card made using
Stephanie's "Stamps of Life" stamps.

More digital stamps/copics

Another image from Mo's Digital Pencil and Copic markers...I am still trying to learn the whole shading and such with the Copics. I still think this image is just adorable...another card that remined me of my childhood..."Easter Sunday's Best". T.F.L

Okay so I went to an all day crop...literally all day, 10a.m-10p.m and one of my fellow scrappers had a few new carts...Elegant Edges and I believe the Springtime or Easter, well none-the-less, she agreed to cut some images for me. I saw this "chocolate" bunny and it so reminded me of when I was a child and my grandma would give all of her grandchildren a "chocolate" bunny for Easter. Sooooo of course I had to make a card out of it. Unfortunately my grandma is no longer here with us so I think I will just keep this card for myself, just as a reminder...
This was a quick card I made using Great Impressions stamps for the "ducky" and Stamps of Life stamps for the tulips,grass,clouds,eggs and sentiment. Thanks for looking

Altered items

Okay, so I saw this idea over at MadebyMomo a while back where she covered an ordinary composition book and simple picture frame from WalMart and thought..." I can do that", well here is what I came up with. Nice gift set for family and friends. T.F.L, comments are welcomed.

The Best of Pixar

I recently bought the BEST OF PIXAR cart( which now makes cart #68 for me) and decided to make WALL-E, which I have to admit, it took me almost an hour to create this card but I think it turned out just fabulous...and JACKJACK from the Incredibles, O.M.G, I feel in love with this little guy! T.F.L, comments are always welcomed.

Oh how much fun "Kate's ABC's" cart is. I think this card turned out so darn cute. What do you think? I can see many cards being made with this cart that is exclusive to JoAnn's Fabric stores. T.F.L
Going to a Tinkerbell party so i needed to make a card to coordinate with the theme....I am not to crazy about the way it turned out but hey, it will work. T.F.L. Comments are always welcomed.

Wednesday, January 26, 2011 has some wonderful stamp sets....these two cards were made with stamps from Stephanie's line...Head on over to see what she has to offer.
For this one I used RockPrincess, I think she turned out real cute and "hip". I believe i cut her at 3.25 inches as with all of the coordinating cuts, i used glossy accents to highlight her glasses, pink glitter paper for the card mat. T.F.L...comments are always welcomed.

So i was having a bit of a crafting brain freeze, so I decided to challege myself to make two cards in less than 30 minutes, using scraps and nothing too elaborate, well, here is what I came up with , using my Gypsy and some scrap paper. T.F.L.
I felt like using my polka dots embossing folders on this one...maybe too many dots? None-the-less, i like the color combo...I used, paperlace for the wording and cuttlebug embossing folders for the background. T.F.L. all comments are welcomed. This is all a crafting learning experience for me!

         Over at CricutCardzChallenge, the idea was to create something while only using the colors, RED/BLACK/WHITE. This is what I came up with. T.F.L

Just passing time..birthday, etc.

                             I was in the mood to make birthday cards...this is what i came up with. T.F.L..

 I went to my local Micheal's, and they now carry "Thickers" so of course I had to buy some and then use them! The bottom of the card actually says"lovebirds". It is just hard to see in the photo.
       I think this card turned out quite cute...the Monkey actually swings from side to side...simple but cute.

MyPinkstamperBlogHop entry

Robyn over at is hosting a bloghop. The challenge was to create something with the color pink.I made one of these cards for a friend and thought i would recreate it for the challenge.

Wednesday, January 5, 2011 is a close up. I am new to this whole blogging thing and it is taking me awhile to learn how to upload images...add blinkies etc.
