Put on your Big Girl Panties and Deal with It!

I love that saying!! I bought this set from TAC just for that reason too!! I've been wanting to make some cards that are "rude", but funny! I've been keeping a list of some "harsh" sayings and I continue to keep making up some of these cards!!

This week has been awesome!! My life has slowed down a little and I've had some "Me" time!!

Hope you like the card!!

Let me know what you think about "Rude" cards!! I think they are hilarious!!! LOL!!

Have a Wonderful Day!!

TAC Sparkle Angels....

Hello Everyone! Sorry I've been MIA...but I've been busy with school and started a new job!! Now that training for the new job is over (I passed my State Test for Nurse Assistant!!!) things have slowed down.
My friend requested a card pack using Angels....she wants to give them away to a friend who has I immediately thought of this set by TAC (The Angel Company)!! I used twinkling H20 colors to color them in...they look so heavenly in person!!! I used my cuttlebug background on Bling Bazzil paper so they are really shimmery!! I also used some Stickles for their halos and their sparkly wands!! I really love this set and I think I will be making more of these little ladies!!

Have a Great Day!!

ATC Swap

Hello Everyone!! Just thought I would post some ATC's I finished for a Penny Black Split Coast ATC swap. I think they came out really cute!! I really love the Penny Black stamps!! I love the Stick kids and that Dog...I have a few of the Big Fluffy Cat too!! I used watercolor pencils to color the images in. I tried using my SU markers but I couldn't get the colors to blend well and it just looked better with the watercolors!! LOL!!
We had a great time at the was chilly but we still had a blast! We even took the boys tubing!!
I went back to class tonight A&P 2 ! Yikes! That snuck up on me pretty fast!! So far I love my lab instructor...tomorrow I have lecture!

What!! Its Thursday!!??

I can't believe its Thursday!! Where did the week go?? I was busy this week canning! Ugg! I do enjoy it but it is a lot of work!! It was also my PMS week so that didn't help...I'm always a little off that week!! I did finish my friends Birthday tin for her sister!! I think it turned out really cute. I used a little bit of cricut, cuttlebug, pocket full of posies paper and some cute embellishments!! The tin was from a kit from Leaving Prints. I forgot to scan the inside of the tin before attaching some of the scans did not come out that great...but you can get the idea!!
We are heading up to the lake for the weekend...our last little trip before school starts. I actually start school on Monday and the boys start on Thursday and Friday. Wow!!
Ok I'm heading up the the scraproom to work on a few things...maybe I'll be posting something later!!

Happy Monday!!

Hello Everyone!! Wow...what a Sunday I had!! It started off nice and relaxing then all of a sudden...There was an explosion of people....Don't get me wrong I Loved it!! Our friend Pam came over to spend the day which was soo fun!! We ended up going to Sams, then home. She started working on cleaning the Garlic from the garden and I started working on her Birthday Project for her Sister...We came up with the idea of a really cute mini album...will show pictures as soon as I finish!! Then my MIL came over and helped with dinner and Pam with the Garlic, then our other friend came over with his daughter ( Bonus: he brought 2 racks of ribs which were Fabulous!!!) , then my oldest son came home from Cedar Point ( he had been at his Dad's house for the weekend) !!

This was actually a Perfect Sunday...My house filled with Family and Friends and we all enjoyed a Fabulous Meal together!! Loved It!!!

Since I didn't get to make/finish anything to picture... I will post a pic of my Christmas Card that I will be using this year!!

Isn't he adorable!! This stamp is from The Angel Company!! When I saw this stamp...I couldn't resist...this Santa is exactly what I picture Santa to look like!! I heat embossed the image in black and colored in his hat with my SU markers. Not sure where the plaid paper came from...somewhere in my stash and the green CS is textured from DCWV. I received this stamp from my Secret Pal and Friend (Lanie) from my local Scrappin group SIT (Scrappin in Toledo)!!!
I'm not sure if Santa needs a little something extra on the card...maybe an eyelet or some ribbion??? Any suggestions would be appreciated!!
Gotta go make Breakfast!!!

Dry Embossing...Another Passion

Here is a little example of my Dry Embossing!! My favorite stencils are from Lasting Impressions!! I have quite a few!!! LOL!! I just love the look of it!! It is certainly my style...whimsical and fun!! This is a Birthday Calendar that we made at our SIT (Scrappin In Toledo) Group B-day party!! The papers are from Lasting Impression too. The ribbons that I used up top are from Leaving Prints.

This card I made for a friend who has been working out and losing weight!! The papers are Lasting Impressions and the stencil is too. I will work on getting the stencil numbers next time!!
Well I hope everyone has a wonderful Saturday!! I'm going to go see what I can whip up real quick in the Scrap Room and then I'm going to take the boys to the pool!! My hubby is helping our friends move today!!
Embossing Hugs!! ( I totally scraplifted this saying from my Embossing Mentor Donna Lane!! )

My First Blog!!!

Happy Friday Everyone!! I guess I would have to say this ATC best represents me at this moment!! I am totally addicted to these Bella stamps and the Bellahollic Yahoo group too...which got me started on this blogging thing!!
I'm so into scrappin...I have to do it everyday or I feel empty (or maybe guilty for not using up stuff from my stash!!!)
This ATC I of course used the Stampinbella stamp. The polka dot paper is from Leaving Prints. ( I was a former Consultant for them!!) The turqouise paper is from MME paper pack. I used my SU markers to color in the Bella!!
I entered this ATC in my local Scrappin Group (Scrappin in Toledo) and won Artist of the Month!! I was soo tickled!! LOL!!
I can't stop using this stamp...I also altered a checkbook cover, one of those dollar 2 year planners, and a keychain!! Yikes!! Can't Stop!!
This is my first Blog entry so bear with me and Enjoy!! I hope to add something every day!!
Happy Stampin and Scrappin!!
