Let's play dress-up!

I am having a ball with these little girls. They are so cute all on their own, so I decided not to clutter up the cards with a lot of embellishments. I'm trying to play catch-up this week as Friday starts spring break and there probably wont be a lot of time for stamping.

I hope you enjoy seeing these cards as much as I enjoyed making them!

Fun with Copics

Last night I colored a few images with my Copic markers. I still have a long way to go to really learn how to use these markers, but I'm getting there. I can see the value in having all of the Copic colors now too. It's so much easier to shade etc...when you have every color in a particular color family. Anyway, I put these little cuties together this morning and thought I'd share.

I hope you are all having a great day!

Greetings Earthlings!

Today I decided it was time to make some more cards for Operation Write Home. I love this organization and what they do. Besides, it gives me a reason to stamp whatever I'm in the mood for and a place to send the cards that may otherwise end up in a box collecting dust. Not a bad deal if you ask me.

Hope you all are having a wonderful start to your week!

Here kitty kitty kitty...

I decided to participate in the OWH Stars and Stamps blog Wednesday challenge this week. The theme is to make a card using a four legged friend. I'm off to work so this is a quicky, but thanks for stopping by and make sure you check out the Stars and Stamps blog. Better yet, make some cards to send to OWH. You can click on the blinky in my side bar to get more info!

Have a wonderfully fluffy day!

Spring Blog Hop

Welcome to the Spring Blog Hop!

What do you think of when you think of spring? I know for me it's, warmer weather, an extra hour of daylight and Easter. Who doesn't love chocolate bunnies, jelly beans, and finding the golden egg? In my house, that's the one that always has the cash in it.

Make sure you "hop" around and check out what all of these talented ladies for the Spring Blog Hop! You're sure to find some great inspiration! Thanks so much to Stacy for organizing this!

Silly Monkey

I knew when I saw this stamp I had to have it. It so reminds me of when my son was very young and we discovered glycerin bubbles at the Gymboree store. I thought they were the coolest bubbles ever because they don't pop so easily. We tried to catch them on our tongues every time we blew bubbles. Ah...the good ole days!

I hope your week is bubbling over with fun!

Just a quickie post before I head off to work. All stamps and papers used to make this card came from TAC.

I hope you all had a great weekend and thanks for looking!

Best Wishes

What a crazy couple of months it's been! I've have very little time to stamp, and have been busy with so many other things. It's ok though. My son took me to the Mother Son dance on Friday night and it was so much fun. Prior to that we had an art and science fair at school and were busy with lots and lots of projects for that and other class goings on. Yikes! Where does the time go? I'm already thinking about spring break and before you know it the kids will be on summer vacation. After that...there's JR HIGH!!! AK! (yeah, that's me screaming) How did this happen?? Just yesterday we were starting kindergarten. Ok, moving on before I burst into tears...

Here's a nice little springy type card. I love this Basic Grey paper and the butterfly punch from SU! This was also my duh moment card. I sanded the heck out of the pink paper trying to make the dry embossed area white. Well, no matter how much you sand paper, if it's doesn't have a white core it will never turn white. DUH!
Thanks for looking today and have a wonderful week!

Toadally In Love

How cute is this little guy? It's from the latest TAC Serendipity catalog called Fairytale Fun. I used a sentiment from Hoppy Everything and some TAC paper. I think it turned out pretty cute.

Thanks for looking and have a great day!
