Heirloom Craft Fair

Stefani and I went to an Heirlooms craft fair yesterday and had so much fun, I only bought a few things as money is tight right now ... we did some make and takes and I found this thing called Smooch's. It's new to me, and I love it ... AND they had this lady there that did dry embossing, I forgot about that, she made me want to come home and pull out all my stuffs ..... Anywhoo, here are some pics of the Smoochs that I found, and the card that my Steffers made ....

This isn't a very good pic, but my Steffers made this card at one of the make and takes .... isn't it so pretty?

It's kind of hard to see, but they used some of that soft puffy flowery stuffs on the flowers to make it really stand out ... Good job Stefani!

These are the bags we made, we made them out of envelops .... awesome huh?? anyways, we used some of the spray Smoochs and dried it with a drying gun and then stamped out image, mine is the one with the coffee cup and the other one is Stefani's, she kind of got carried away with spriting her bag ... hehehehe she still did a good job though!

so in this pic, we have the Smooch's sprit spray and the other one that looks like fingernail polish is another kind of Smoochs .... and then of course I bought the embossing templet .... well that was our day yesterday .... hope you enjoy!

Playing in the Rain

Hi all, well is's been raining here in Cali, I love it, but I really need to get into the back yard and mow the lawn and I can't do that while it's raining .... So I saw this little stamp in one of my fav stamping stores, I knew that I had to have it. I LOVE it ..... and it fits with all the rain we have been having here.

I have been busy with school and have several semester projects to do .. ugh! the good thing is that I know what needs to be done, it's just doing it ... hehehehe

I've been feeling some what better, my kidneys are still a bit inflamed which is very painful, but it's not as bad as it was several weeks ago.

So tomorrow is my oldest nephews birthday, I can't believe that he's going to be 26 ...man that makes me feel old. I love him so much .... I was looking at the calendar and noticed that my Steffers birthday is on Easter this year! Woot, i'm so excited ....

Well I hope you enjoy my card, I used my H20 on the rain coat and my copics to color in the monkey. I also mixed some glitter and embossing power and put some heat on the swirl on the end of the card ... I should have used a different color ink so it would show up better, but I guess it's trial and error ... next time I'll try something different. Thanks for stopping by and have a good day!

~ Valentine Lovebug ~

Hey all ....
Happy Tuesday, it's a beautiful day here in Cali, the sun was out but now it looks like it's going to rain. I managed to mow the lawn and edge the grass. My Steffers pulled weeds and did the best she could to help.

In other news, I think my kidneys are inflamed, my back is killing me, not sure if I shared, but due to my diabetes and not taking good care of myself, I was diagnosed with Kidney disease. I have been taking my meds and shots so i'm not sure why my kidneys are hurting. i'm very bummed ... because it's very painful.

On to the card, I love this little guy, I use him all the time, so I hope your not tired of him! The Lovebug stamp is from Michaels, it was a dollar stamp .. well I better go, I have school tonight and I didn't read the chapter ... Opps! Thanks for stoping by and hope ya'll have a great day!
