I've been working on this little set for a couple of days now and I think I've finally finished. I am so enjoying this stamp set from TAC called From the Heart. I think it would be perfect for Valentines Day cards or I love you of cards. There is one other little girl in the set I haven't used yet and I still have some pieces of the patterned paper left so I might just add her. Thanks for looking and have a great day!

When I started these over the weekend I intended for them to be Christmas list holders. I went to Michaels and got a couple of those dollar list pads and some recipe cards. Unfortunately neither of them work. I guess since the clipboards are 6X9 they are a bit too small. I haven't given up yet, but if anybody has any suggestions on what I can use for a list pad I'd love to hear from you. I'm also not that thrilled with the ribbon at the top, but it needed something, so if you have any thoughts on that please feel free to share. Thanks for looking and remember, it's never to early to start those Christmas projects.

So a little birdie told me they liked the layout of my owl card (see below) but not the image. What!? I love those little owls. Anyway, it got me thinking about beauty being in the eye of the beholder. You know, one man's trash is another man's treasure. I could go on, but you get it. I guess I shouldn't expect for you to comment on all my cards. Right? We all have different tastes and that's what makes the world interesting. It does occur to me that there are people who look at my blog but never comment. So, I challenge you. If you are reading this blog, leave a comment. Good, bad, or otherwise. I'd love to hear from you. Oh and I'm working on a couple of Christmas projects I can't wait to show you. I just need to add a few finishing touches. Hope you all are having a great weekend and thanks for commenting.

I've been a stampin' fool the last few days and it feels great! I figure since I have to work tomorrow I'd make the most of today and stamp as much as I can. And even though it's a hundred million degrees out lately I can still feel fall coming. I really enjoy being creative in the fall and I've even had Christmas cards on my mind. So we shall see what today brings.
I hope you are all having a wonderful week and are finding some time to enjoy your creativity!

I know, two back to back posts. This will make up for my lack of updates later on in the week since I have to work. I wanted to show you guys this little witch card because I think I'm closer to achieving that tulle look. I don't know if you can see it, but I used one of those clear jelly roll glitter pens on her skirt and her hat.I just dotted it all over and sort of blended it with my finger before it dried. You have to be fast because it dries fast, but I like the way it turned out. If any of you have any tricks to share about the tulle look feel free to share. :)
I love fall. I love that the kids are back to school! I love my routine during the school year and I love Halloween! I was going to submit the little frankenboy cartd to TAC for catalog consideration, but I was too late in getting it sent. That's ok, I can always sell/donate my cards. The little frankengirl is from a set called Spooky Girls that is in the Serendipity supplement from last fall. I just got the set and am loving all the cute images in it. If the upcoming Serendipity is as good as the last, you guys are in for a real treat. HA HA no pun intended. Thanks for looking and have a great day!

How do I not have a just bee-cause stamp? This really wasn't supposed to be a Halloween card, but I didn't have the sentiment that I really wanted to put on it. It is beyond me how I don't have a stamp that says just bee-cause. Or bee anything thing for that matter. Oh well. She still turned out great and I love her little flower barrettes! Hope you are all having a great start to your week.

When I was on my friend Angi's blog I saw one of her cutest cards ever. I loved what she did with the spiderweb embossing folder, so I decided to case it. I'm not all that impressed with my layout or my choice of color combo, but I love the way my witch turned out, and was in a big ole hurry to finish the card. The more I use Copic's on my cards the more I see the value in having all the colors. Since that's not possible I made due with what I have, and I have to say I really, really like the end result of my little witch!
I hope you all have a wonderful weekend and thanks for looking!

I knew when I saw this stamp set in the catalog I had to have it. It's from a new set called Delightfully Spooky. It has the cutest Halloween stamps in it, but this particular image was just screaming to be used as a Birthday clown. This is my first pass at the ideas I have in my head. I tried to make the neck piece look like tulle. I went back at the last minute and added the extra colored polka dots. Not sure if it's really what I was going for, but it works for this card. I was going to use some red flock on the wig, but I think that will be my next go round with this image.
I hope you enjoy today's card! School started today, so hopefully I'll have more time to stamp then I did over the summer break.
Thanks for looking and have a great day!

Since I haven't posted in a while I thought I'd share a little goody I made a couple of weeks ago. This little guy is from a retired TAC set called Wild West. I think he is the cutest! I used a regular ole brad covered with crystal lacquer and glitter for the star. I used my Kohinoor pencils and oms to color him. Today my plan is to stamp, stamp, stamp! I hope you all have a great weekend and thanks for looking!
