My First Anya Stamp

Well it's kind of hard to see, but this is my first Anya stamp, I bought some more but was so excited that I had to make a card right away, she is so cute! I'll be sure to post more as I make them.... perhaps on spring break, I have one week of school left and 2 midterms, I hope I do well...

Gosh, as I sit here and type out this post, and i'm so excited about my new stamps, I do it with a heavy heart, a friend of mine passed away yesterday ... I worked with her for several years at Target and Providian Finanical ... she was sick for a few days and now she's gone ... I'm not sure what she passed from, but I know she was sick with bonchitis (sp??) ....

well on that note, I better go, I still need to shower, study and go get my car, it's in the shop for an oil change and small tune up .... hope you all have a blessed day!

** My dear friend Perlita, may you have a safe and quick journey to Heaven, may God wrap his arms around your family during this difficult time **

It's Spring Time

Hello, Hello, hello .... it's such a beautiful day here in Northern Cali, I think it's going to be in the mid to high 70's, i'm lovin it, but the bad thing is that - that means summer is right around the corner and I don't like the heat ..... but on the other hand, that means that Stefani and I will be hanging out at Water World on the weekends ... woot!

This little card reminds me of SPRING, all the bright colors I used .... I love the background striped paper, it's one of my favorites ..... I also used my oval spellbinders, LOL when I was putting them together, i was off a bit ... hehehe oh well, I guess that's what makes this card an original. I love the stamp, it looks like the girl is going to be carried away ..... I was so excited, I used my Smooch ink for her hair, pants and shirt and balloons ... it's kind of hard to see, but I used that crystal stuff on the balloons .... then of course I used some flowers.
Well short post today, I have to get the day started and do some laundry, food shopping and the dreaded homework.... thanks for stoppin by .....

Happy Saturday!

Morning all, i was up early due to the birds chirping and the sun shining, I guess that's a good thing, but I wanted to sleep in ... oh well .... I'm going to my cousin's baby shower today, she is having a little girl after having 2 boys, so she is super excited..... so here is one of the cards that I just got done making, the shower is in 2 hours and I'm making cards and blogging ... LOL

I made this one for my Momma, she figures why should she buy cards when I can make them for her for free, and she's right! I love this little one, I think it's because all of the pink in it and the little images.....

Well, it's a really short post today seeing that i'm running late, hope you all enjoy and thanks for stopping by!

Hola Senorita

Isn't she so cute?? I call her my little Senorita, she actually reminds me of my good friend Anna, I got her at my favorite stamping store in my neighboring city! I used my new spellbinders for her .... I have to say that it came out pretty good.

I used my NEW brown Smooch ink for her hair and then my copics of course for her dress .... it's kind of hard to see but I also used some crystal stuff on her little dress to make it puffy .... Oh and I can't forget the use of the flowers .... over all, I love it ...
So Stefani and I were up early this morning, well at least I was, a friend called me at 5:45am ... perhaps he's not a very good friend for calling that early ... Just kidding .... he saw that I called him so he was calling me back, but had he looked at the time, he would have noticed that I called last night at 8:40pm.
well a short post today, as you all know I have tons of homework to do and little time to do it in ... Thanks for stoping by .....

Time Flies

Wow, time flies when your so busy! As you all know, I've been busy in school .. so many papers to write, lots of reading and most of all trying to deal with everything else.

So I found this little stamp in Berkley and fell in love with her, I used my copics for her hair and flowers, but used my shimmers for her dress. I was trying to find a way to use my new "Smooch" stuff, but I think i'll make another little gift bag for my baby niece and nephew for St. Patty's day.

It's hard to see, but I used some diamond embelishments for the flowers .... well, i bettet go, I have lots to do today including, laundry, reading, homework and cleaning the house, oh and lets not forget making dinner.

Hope you all enjoy!
