My good friend Nancy created this stamp. She is SOOO talented!! I love the fact that she can draw and create her own stamp line. I love this stamp. I am getting TOO many favorites lately. This was colored with copics, no embellishments, but I love the simplicity of it. Another fun stamp to use.
2 of my favorite stamp companies.. Judith and Riley's! I wasn't too sure how this was going to turn out as I was making it, but I am pleased with the results. Riley is SO fun to color. My collection of him is growing quite quickly! Fun card to make.

Its funny, but right when you think they can't come out with a cuter Riley than the last release.. "THEY DO!"... THis is probably one of my faves "again!". Just too adorable!!! I colored it with copics, used the cuttlebug folder, and patterned paper, along with my nesties. Coloring can be time consuming, but I love how it turned out.

I was so happy today when I looked outside and saw the Indigo Bunting at the feeder. Such a pretty blue they are. I bought the new "Scott's" bird seed they advertise on tv to attract more colorful birds to your feeder. It seems to be working good, I had this little guy, a bunch of yellow finches and purple finches, and also a rose-breasted grossbeak. It sure is nice to watch them out my office window. They seem to like the new food, as the feeder is almost empty already.

another flopsey... are you tired of it yet? This card was made with my new favorite punch by ek success. Also I used nesties for the scalloped rectangle, I also used liquid pearls on the scallops. I stamped out flopsey and cut it out and then pop-dotted it to stand out. It is still lacking something, but I like the looks of it.
Here is another thing I bought on my shopping trip last week with my good friend Vivian. "CHANGITO"... who would've ever thought a monkey could be so cute! I also used my new ek success border punch (love), some eyelets, and also the cuttlebug border embossing folder of buttons. I was going to add 2 tiny buttons on his pajamas, to tie in with the border. I thought I knew exactly where my teenie, tiny buttons were, but they weren't there. Guess that means I gotta clean my supplies and re-label stuff. Fun card to make....


Another Flopsey card. I dont 'know why I waited as long as I did to take the plunge and buy these sets. He is adorable~! I also used some prima flowers, the martha stewart branch, (love that punch!)... the sentiment is from Papertreys anniversary set.. thanks again nance! I also used the new ek success border punch that I bought last Tuesday. Love that punch as well. I colored with copics, I wish my pictures were better, the card looks even better in real life. I will ahve to play around to try and take better pictures. Very fun card to make


One of my newest stamp sets that I adore. "Flopsey", I love coloring him in, this was a very fun card to make. I pop-dotted the square that he is on for some dimension. I dont' know why I dont' use popdots more, it really adds to a card. I colored it with copic markers. The sentiment is from papertreys anniversary set that my dear friend Nancy sent me. "THANK YOU Nance, it is one of my favorites that I am always reaching for!"... a very fun card to make

Another Riley!! This one I cut the trees out with my cricut as well. paper pierced the nestabilitie circle with Riley in. Colored him with copic markers. Did a flannel background stamp to try and match his shirt that I made him. (yup, if you look real close it is a flannel)... I also used a little distressed ink from Tim Holtz for the edges of the card. The picture isn't hte greatest, but I was anxious to post it. More to come...
This stamp is from my friend Nancy. She is the creator of it and you can find it at cornishheritagefarms. Her line is called shady tree. What a beautiful and detailed stamp. I love it. I also put a little stickles on the tulip for a little shimmer. The background stamp is an older stampin up. More cards to come....


This card looks better in real life. The coloring is off, but I wanted to post it anyway. You gotta love Riley, and what an outdoors-ey little Riley he is, sawing some wood. Looks like he is sawing it for his little log-cabin in the background. Colored Riley with copics, cabin and trees, with prismapencils. Paper-pierced the circle that was cut out with nestabilities. I think Riley is my new favorite stamp.

Winter friends??? I thought this would be an adorable picture, and I hoped that they would 'stay put' till I could go and get my camera. We have had these little critters all winter long, but I never seen them this close to one another before. They were just chowing down on the birdseed, and enjoying the spring day we had...

I posted a pic of the male the other day, and today I was lucky enough to catch a snapshot of the "Mrs." I love that they are coming this close to the house. I think they are such pretty birds. More cards to come.....

I love the way this card turned out. Another one made from papertreys quilters sampler set. I cuttlebugged the background, stamped out some of the blocks and colored them, and the blue ones are just punched out from patterned paper. I love the way they look together. A button threaded with floss to finish it off, and voila' a cute card. (I think anyway)
These were some fun cards that I made for my mom to give to her quilting friends. I used papertrey kraft cardstock for the base card. The sentiment is also from the same set as the blocks, quilters sampler. I used a making memories heart brad. Fun cards to make.
I thought I would post the picture I took this morning of my favorite bird I have coming to my feeders. I just love cardinals. They are so pretty.

I talked my mom into getting this set for me, so I could make cards for her quilting friends. I think this is one of my most favorite sets yet from papertrey. I cuttlebugged the background, and then used my scor-pal do divide the cuttlebug part and the plain part. Used a prima flower, along with my favorite martha stewart punch, thread a button, and voila a cute little quilting card!
This was a fun card to make. Sometimes I forget about sets I have. I colored it with my newest toys the 'copic markers'.. gosh they are great! I used the nesties for the scallope circle for the boat. Ribbon, red eyelet to match the life preservers on the boat. Stampin up photo corner punch, and of course that gorgeous basic grey paper!!
