Stella .......

Hi all and Happy Wednesday! the weather is awesome, it's nice and cool and I have meatloaf in the oven and getting ready to make some chocolate cupcakes .... I love this weather. Anyways, I made this little card the other night when I couldn't sleep, it's not the best, but I think it's cute. I used my Stella (Anya stamp) and added the little scooter. I got the scooter stamp at Michaels for a dollar! Awesome ... right? I also used some flower ribbon that I got from Joann's fabric store. Hope ya'll enjoy!

The pic below is my little Steffers well I guess she's not that little, she's going to be 25 in April. Man, I can't believe that, 25 ... where has the time gone?? She doesn't look 25 though, any who, she's still my baby! We where at Mainely Stamping, out fav stampin store ... Stefani love to go and do the make and takes. My Steffers isn't really into making cards, but she does enjoy going and doing the make and takes.

Well, I hope you enjoyed the card that I made and the picture of Stefani making hers, I was trying to post her finished product, but for some reason it wouldn't post ... anyways,  thanks for stopping by and enjoy your Wednesday! I'm off to eat, finish the cupcakes and then head out to my internship! night all :)

Think Pink

Well it's that time of the year ... but really we should Think Pink all year long. I lost my beloved Nana in 2005 to this ugly disease, it makes me so sad, in this day and age we should have some kind of cure. So many women (and some men) fall to Breast Cancer and it devastates the family left behind!

It took me a few days to complete this card, call me sappy, but it was very emotional for me, I love and miss my Nana everyday .... so with this, I proudly walk in memory of my Nana!

I believe that one day there will be a cure, unfortunately it came to late for my Nana, but someday the cure will save someone else's Nana, mother, daughter, cousin. niece etc...... so lets Think Pink all year long .............. Thanks for stoping by

Fall is Here

Hi all .... didn't craft anything yesterday, I wasn't feeling to good. My blood sugar was high and my kidneys were bothering me. I haven't felt like that in a while. I get really shaky and feel like i can't stand not to mention my back hurts .... I have been doing really good then one day last week I forgot to take my meds and BOOM, I really paid for it .... one day of missing meds leads to days of not feeling good.

So I rested and napped all day until I had study group, I wasn't going to go, but my friends made it easy for me ....... anyways, enough about me, back to my card .... :)

So this little stamp is from Great Impressions and I love her, isn't she cute?? I used my H20's to color her in and then I used some Orange glitter from doodlebug, I love doodlebug products ... they are my fav :)

Then I used my pumpkin cuddlebug and then once again, I used some orange ink and dabbed it on the pumpkins and then I used some green ink for the leaves .... well you know me, it's homework time and then off to resting, I don't want to do to much to fast, I need to get better .... thanks for stopping by!

Hi all and Happy Wednesday! it's a beautiful day here in Northern Cali, my Dad came and got my Steffers this morning for some golf, they had a good time, then they went to Costco and got some stuffs too ... it makes me so happy that Stefani and my Dad are having fun with Golf. I think my dad is going to take her out several times a week, that's good for the both of them.

Well the card below is my creation for today, yes I'm sure you guys are getting tired of seeing Sleepy Marci, but I just love her. I used some paper that I got from Michael's (on sale) and some light purple cards stock, I'm not sure if it's bazzill or not ... it could be something that I picked up from Joanna's, they were having a moonlight madness sale, paper was 5 for a $1.00, good deal. I picked up some other things too, most everything was either 40, 50 or 60% off .... Needless to say, I got some great deals.

I used my copics on her and put some bling in the middle of some of the flowers. I just found those long lost blings, they were hiding from me for a while, I was looking for something else and found the bling, what does that mean?? I have way to much stuff and really have no business buying anything else for a while... at least that's what my friend Anthony says .... I should use up some of my inventory before I go out and buy more ...hehehehe I say Pea-shaw, I'm a cardstock hoarder, I can't not go into a store and not buy any cardstock ..... oh well - well its Wednesday and that means I have to get ready to go and intern ... hope ya'll enjoyed the card, if you like my little Marci, be sure to go and check out La La Land Crafts ...

Hope yous all have a good day! until tomorrow ... :)

Cows, Cakes and Birthdays

HI all and Happy Monday, man the weather is awesome right now, we welcomed the rain yesterday and it was awesome. I love the rain, i'm so ready for it to be here. I took my Momma around to run her errands, but then Stefani and I came home and relaxed. I was going to rent some movies, but got to lazy.

So i did some scrapbooking and it felt great. I made the card below, the stamp is from La La Land Crafts, it's she cute??

I used pink colors, Pink is my Stefani's fav color ... I used my copics to color her in and then used my nesties die cuts. I think it came out pretty good, I also used some glitter for the ruffles on her dress....

I interned tonight and it went pretty good, I really enjoy myself, I love working with the clients, I should be graduation in May with my certificate, finally! it felt like it was taking forever. I should graduate in 2012 with my AA, well that's if I don't transfer first. I'm hoping to skip the AA and go straight for the BA, but we'll see ... well gonna be a short post today, I have to get up early tomorrow, gotta drive my daddy around so he can run his errands. Night all  and thanks for stopping by!

Slumber Party :)

Hola, well it's Monday and the day is going well, Stefani is playing the Wii, I finished all my homework for this week and I was able to play in my craft room! It's a great day!

So a friend of mine asked me if I could make some invitations for her daughters slumber party, of course I said yes .... her daughters favorite colors are purple and yellow, so this is what I came up with!
 I used my nesties for the oval shapes, and of course I used my La La Land Marcie stamp. I also used some designer paper that was perfect seeing it's yellow and purple. I thought I had a stamp that said "you're invited", but if I have one, it's hiding from me, so I made a computer generated one ... I used an oval shape punch for that. Oh and I used my copics to help Marcie come to life ....

Above is the inside of the card, I used my cuttlebug for this, this is the same template that I used when I made Stefani's 21st surprise birthday announcements ....  well it's time for lunch and if my Steffers doesn't eat right at 12:30, she thinks she's starving, which is NEVER the case .... hehehehe

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoy!

We watched "The Blind Side" Letters From Juliet, The Jones' and I watched 30 Days from night ....

So my little card below is a stamp from La La Land Crafts, I love her, I used my copics and some glitter on her little dress and broom. It's hard to see but I used some orange and gold smoochs on the pumpkin. U also used my nesties ... I think she came out so cute!

Welcome Fall

Hi all, it's Hump day Wednesday and the weather is beautiful! I'm so loving it. So I feel like I lost my crafting Mojo, I have lots of little projects that I'm working on but I'm stuck. Like my little card below, I got this great idea and used my pumpkin cuttlebug template, I took some dusty pink ink and dabbed it over the pumpkins, then I took some forest green ink and did the same thing over the vines. Then, BOOM gone, my mojo ... wasn't sure what I wanted to do with my Marci image (from LaLa Crafts) ... so I just put her together with a card that I started. It didn't come out the way I wanted her too, but I guess I'm still a crafter in progress .... hehehehehe. I do like the coloring I did though, I love my copics.

So I used my Marci stamp again, but this time I placed her on a little treat box, I have a great niece and nephew that I'm going to send them too, they love getting mail from me... I'm going to send my great nephew Noah the Frankie one I did last week ... well short post today, I have more treat baskets to make and I need to finish up a project that I'm doing for a school friend. She makes some great cakes, cupcakes and cookies, so I'm using my cricut to make her cupcakes holders.

Well, seeing it's Wednesday, I have to intern tonight, so I'll be up late making cards and treat boxes ... but I should really be working on my midterm.... yeah, no, that can wait, I have some crafting to do ... hehehehe ... well Thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoy my stuffs! Oh yeah, before I forget, La La Crafts released 3 new stamps, go and check them out, they are so cute! I can't wait to get my little hands on them .....

Luka the Pirate

Hi all and happy Sunday! Whoo, it really cooled down today and i'm loving it. It's a cool 79 degrees with a little breeze ... yippie! I do believe that Fall is finally here ....

So today was a lazy kind of day, my daughter Stefani watched TV and played her games, while I made a few cards and cleaned the house and finished up laundry. Ok, so I didn't have much of a lazy day, but it felt like it, no pressure today .... It was a good day!

So this is Luka, he's another La La Land Crafts stamp and I'm loving him, I made a card like this using another little pirate, so I thought I would do it again to introduce little Luka! This time I used my Prima color pencils and gamsol to blend my coloring. I think it turned out pretty good.

I used some light peach bazzill cardstock and then I got three different colors of brown ink along with some white ink and sponged it across the cardstock to give it that old wooden board look .... then I took a black marker to give the plank look. I saw this look on another blog ... I can't remember whose blog I saw it on, It was so long ago .... well the weekend is ending and I still have to help Stefani with her homework, so Ta Ta for now, see ya tomorrow and thanks for stopping by!

Happy World Card Making Day!

Hi All, I'm a bit late adding this, but Happy World Card Making Day! I made this little card, it's she cute?? Her name is Marci, she's from La La Land Crafts. I used my copics on her and some of that crystal stuffs, it makes the cards look pretty cool and shinny. La La land Crafts has lots of new stamps and I'm in love with them. Hope you all enjoy her! I'll be posting more cards ....

So the card below was made by my lovely daughter Stefani, we stopped at our fav stamping store Mainley Stamping, so Stefani did the make and take. I think she did a fabulous job. She needed some help, but did most of it herself.

Well it's a short post today, I was so busy and now I'm tired, I had to get up early and take Stefani to school, then go and get her and then I went to help out a friend and now I have to help Stefani write her report and I still have my process notes for this week to write... eek, I better get going. Oh and I had my First PTK (Phi Theta Kappa) meeting this week, it was great, we are about to do some great things, I feel honored to be a part of such a great group. Have a good night and thanks for stopping by!
