To The Moon!

Hi all ... and Happy Friday! So glad it's Friday, not sure why seeing that I have to work tomorrow, but there's something about Friday's that makes me happy ... :) It's been raining here for the last few days, I love the rain, but that means Stefani and I can't ride our bikes, I only have 6 weeks left to make my goal weight .... eek, but when the summer comes, I'll be complaining it's to hot, so I'll enjoy this cool weather while it's here!

So this is my Space Ian card, I can't take the credit for the design, I seen it somewhere before and remembered it and decided to use it for this lil guy! I really don't care for the back ground, but I was trying to make it look like Ian was in space. I used some black card stock, the moon is hard to see, but I used one of my cuttlebug templates and cut it in a half moon. I used my copics in Ian's hair and some silver H20 on his outfit. Well hope you enjoy and thanks for stopping by! Until I post again, have a blessed day!

Lil Fire Fighter

Morning blogging friends .... first off I would like to day Rest in Peace Elizabeth Taylor! I liked her, she had gumption!

Ok, back to my card... I got this stamp from my friend Jen from Pieces of Me, I love it ... it's so cute. I found it while I was cleaning out my scrapbook room a few weeks ago. it's an amazing thing when you clean, you find so many cool and cute things you forgot you had! LOL.

My daughter loves this stamp too, when she sees Fighter Fighters, she always thinks of our dear friends Jim and his wife CB. Jim was a Captian of one of the Fire Departments where we live ... when they were coming home from calls they received, and if they passed our house, Jim would blow the horn from the fire truck ... Stefani would get so excited. Awww the memories. Jim's retired now, but Stefani always thinks of him when she sees the Fire Trucks .... We've know them for at least 24 years, I work with CB at a baby store and we remained friends, Stefani was 3 months old when I met them ... Just like my dear friends Doug and Darlene ... man I love them! they are fantastic friends ....

Ok, back to the card, I used some copics on him, I also used the blending copic on his boots, to make it look like they are white washed. the paper is one of the things that I found when cleaning my scrapbook room, I found so much paper in this little folder, it was like Christmas ... hehe .... well guess I better go and get some things done. Thanks for stopping by, until my next post ... Hope ya'll have a great day!

A Rainy Day

Hi all,
well it's raining here in Northern Cali, but I like it. I like being in the house when it's raining and watching movies and eating comfort food ... how about you? the rain is relaxing for me, I can do homework without wanting to be outside.

I'm still trying to write my term paper, but it's so hard and I'm feeling lazt about it, but it's due soon so I need to get on it ... blah!

Well on to my card:
I felt like this little stamp was appropriate seeing it's raining. I used my copics and some christal stuffs to make it shine but it's hard to see it in this picture. I also added some glitter as the rain drops to give it that extra bling. well short post today, I really need to get on that term paper .... ack!

Well thanks for stopping by, until my next post .... have a blessed day and thanks for stopping by!

ATC Creation - Encourage

Hi all, well this isn't a very good picture, but it's my ATC creation, my bloggy friend Sarabeth did a ATC challenge and my letter was "E" - therefore I did Encourage. It's not my best work, but it's what I came up with .... I used some bazzill Black card stock but sprayed it with some white Smooch Spritz to give it that iridescent look to it ... I used my H20's to color the circles and then stamped the flowers on them and added some bling and the red ribbon.

Like I said, not my best work, but I think they came out ok .... well short post today, gotta get on that homework and term paper ... I've been researching Crime and prostitution to write about ... gotta get on it seeing it's due soon. I'm such a procrastinator! Thanks for stopping by and until my next post, hope all my bloggy friends have a good day!

Happy St. Patricks Day ... :)

Happy Saint Patricks Day! I got up this morning and got dressed went to my appointment with the Dean of Solano College and forgot that it was St. Patty's day ... I didn't have any green on, the Dean's admin pointed it that out to me ... I really thought that she was going to pinch me ... LOL she was decked out in Green, in fact many colors of green ...

So I'm hoping that my appointment with the Dean works out, I went to plead my case to be approved for financial aid, he told me to check back next week to see if I was approved. Anyways, school is half over and I'm so happy about that! But then, I'll be taking some summer classes and then it will be time for fall and that means English and math classes! GUH, ACK, BLAH!!!!!

Well on to my little card, It's he cute, I used him last year but I like the colors I used this year. This card almost looks like Fall ... here we are in Spring and I'm making cards with Fall colors .. oh well! Didn't do to much to this card, just used 3 of my copic pens, some ribbon and a flower and brad! easy peezy!

well friends, it's time to clean the kitchen and get to working on my term paper ... thanks for stopping by, until I post again, have a good day my bloggy friends!

It's a Cupcake Kind Of Day

Hey blogger friends! man this weather has been so crazy, it's nice one day and then it's pouring rain the next. Its been a bit overcast and cloudy today, but no rain so far. I think it rained last night, but that's about it. My Steffers is so ready for the spring and good weather so she can go golfing with my dad.

It's Hump day Wednesday and I'm off today, I have a term paper to write and I'm not sure what I'm going to do it on, but I need to get myself in gear and get it done, it's due April 3rd, and that's not to far away!

I ordered my Honor Stole for my graduation in May, I can't wait ... still looking for another part time job, i need one so bad ... but I guess all in good time.

So I love the stamps that I used, they are from great Impressions ... they are two separate stamps, but fit well together, at least I think so. I used my Prima colored pencils and some gamsol to blend the colors. I also used some gold glitter on the pearls and some clear glitter on the cupcake to make it sparkle, it's hard to see, but it's there....

Well, a short post today, I really have to get going and start on that darn term paper .... thanks for stopping by and until my next post, hope ya'll have a great day!

Happy Saturday

Morning all and Happy Saturday! I feel like I have so much to do today and so little time ... I didn't sleep good at all last night, I think I got about 4 hours of sleep ... my tummy isn't feeling well and i'm tired, but the day must go on!

So I'm working on some laundry, posting to my blog, I need to make a Thank You card, mow the lawn, do some homework and then get ready for work. I wanted to head to Michael's to get some more Spellbinders, but I'm not sure that I'll have time for that, that might be a trip for tomorrow. So my little card below is more like an Easter Card, it's it cute? I have to say that I like the colors I used, it seems to make the stamps pop!

Me personally, I don't care for Jelly Beans, but I thought the stamp was cute so I got it. Of course I used my copics on the jelly beans and then I added some of that Chrystal stuffs to make then shinny. I did the same thing on the flower, however, I used a bluish brad on the middle of the flower to attach it to the card .... then I used some dew drops and placed then on the ribbon, over all, I think it came out pretty good. I saw a card made like this before, so I scrap lifted it ... hehehehe but I used different colors, so I can't take credit for the actual creation.

Well, I better go and finish up what I started, so much is waiting for me and all I want to do is to go back to bed .... Look out Lowes here I come .... I need to get an attachment so I can edge my lawns! ACK ..... thanks for stopping by and Hope ya'll have a good day!

You Light Up My Life

Hello blogger friends ... wow, three days in a row that I have posted to my blog ... I'm so proud of myself! I've been trying to make an effort to post at least once a week, but I'm on a roll. Thanks for stopping by!

For some reason this little stamp caught my eye, it's like an old fashion lamp or something. I stamped the image and then stamped it again on the printed paper so it looks like it has a lamp shade ... pretty clever huh? well I can't take the credit, I saw that done before with another stamp and thought it would look cute if I did it here too. I used some pastel paper, I so partial to pastel colors ... it's so girly. well a short post today, gotta hit the books and get ready for work! thanks again for stopping by ....

Hello Spring

Wow, look at me, two post this week.... hehe
I picked up this stamp at one of my favorite little stamp stores ... I love it. I used my spellbinders on this one too, my new ones that you very much!

I stamped the image and them embossed it, I love embossing stamps, it helps when I'm coloring, it doesn't bleed. once I colored the image, I added some glitter to the top of the umbrella. I thought it added a little something to make it pop. I also used the glitter on the Tulips too ...

I added the little Happy Spring, that was from another stamp, I just cut it out and added it to the card. I love spring, but had turning the clock up, I never seem to catch up on sleep, but turning the clock means we are heading into Spring and then Summer <<< ugh! I hate the heat unless I'm in the pool. Speaking of summer, I can't wait to get back to Water world. I wonder how much weight I'll have lost by then??? hummm guess I'll find out in June! I hope I lose more then 30 pounds ... anyways, thanks for stopping by ...

It's Fluffy

OMGoodness, I can't believe that it's been 5 weeks since I have posted to my blog. But I'm back, I'm going to try and post something at least once a week. I would like to post several times a week, but right now is so crazy. School is really kicking my bootay! But it's going well, I can't wait to graduate in May, I'm still on track to graduate with honors, well I'll still have another year to go, and then on to my BA, but at least I have a plan right??

So I used my Fluffy stamp for this card, I think he's so cute, I used my Shimmer paint on Fluffy and colored the flowers with my copics. I also used some purple jewels in the middle of the flower, i wanted to give it some bling! I also used my little flower punches for the flowers and used some diamond bling in the middle of them too ...

I used my new spellbinders as the die cut out, the Michael's in Woodland is carrying spellbinders, I got 6 of them last week, they let me use the 50% off coupon so I got them for $13.00, I bought one, had my Steffers buy one and then my Momma, I went back the next day and we did it all over again...  yay! Well I gotta go and get ready for a PTK meeting! thanks for stopping by!
