Daisy Mouse Card

This cutie card was made for my Grandmother's Birthday. She loves birds, so I thought this stamp from Tina Wenke would be perfect for her!

The patterned papers are from my stash that I have had for years, but I wanted the card to be soft looking, so I thought it would work. The brad are from a collection I got at Michael's a while ago and I used the white Flower Soft to make the dandelions fuzzy.

Daisy Petals: W00, W0

New Card!

I might be wondering if I was still around! I have been very busy doing a ton of things and I just haven't had time to do any card-making!

Here is a card I made using a few new stamps from Hambo Stamps. I thought this bucket of apples was cute and they sent me a tiny apple to go with it! I used some of the Basic Grey fall line of paper and several Cuttlebug embossing folders.

Basket: E13, E15, E17, E18
Apples: R22, R24, R27
Stems: YG13, YG19
White Gel pen to accent
Spica Clear pen for some sparkly apples!

Blog Comments on My Site

I am the LUCKY recipient of blog spam comments today. I have deleted them from the comment sections and have reluctantly added the word verification feature to avoid that in the future. I am sorry you will have to do that, but I want to avoid getting pages of spam comments.


This card is for a friend of mine who plays tuba and I couldn't pass up this digital image from Hambo Stamps to make him a card! I used a few of the Spellbinders Nestabilities to make the shapes and some bright lime green giant ric-rac from my stash. I thought it really brought out the green of the snail. I also brought out my Just-Rite Stamper to make the phrase. I can't wait to send it to him! I hope he doesn't check out my blog in the meantime....

Copic Colors Used:
Tuba: YR20, YR21, YR23, YR24
Snail: YG11, YG13, YG17
Hat: V12, V15, V17
Shell: E70, E71, E74

Froggy Christmas

I recently saw a post on Dustin Pike's site asking for cards to be sent to a young boy who is battling cancer. I couldn't pass up the opportunity to do a good thing for someone!

Marching Band Girls

My oldest niece is a proud horn player in the Overton High School Band in Nashville, Tennessee. When I saw these images from Bella Stamps, I knew I had to have them so I could make her a card! The stamps are MUCH smaller than I expected, so they were quite a challenge to color with the Copic Markers!!! I am so proud of her! By the time this card posts, I will have flown home to Tennessee to see her march in a ball game and in the Contest of Champions! When I was in high school, our band used to march in the Contest of Champions, so it will be neat to be in that environment again!!!
