A little on the wild side

Good morning!

Took the kiddos on a much needed holiday in the mountains this past week. Was one of the best holidays in some time. We were missing the 2 oldest but all in all we had so much fun.

I am still so grateful to have my stamp room back and a place of my own to make a mess and create.  Feels so good! Today I want to share a couple variations of my cheetah cards.  I still adore this set. I believe it is stamping up! Into the wild.  I tend to use it as a go to for more masculine cards but any time really.

I also forgot how much I love adding in the drywall mesh tape for texture. Haha. The paper is some cute do I picked up one day on a local dollar tree visit.

Well as always thank you so much for taking a minute to pop by and visit my Lil blog and see what I am up to!!  See you all again soon. 😊

Hi all!!! It has been so long since I have posted anything on my blog that used to be my baby!!!  Well a lot has gone on and life has led me to a place where I didn't have time or space for creating much.  A good friend of mine started to make me a stamp room in my home. It isn't done yet and it is small but it is mine and I am so very happy to have something again to spread out in. 😊  that said I was busy doing some very long overdue stamp therapy. Just for me and just to help me keep a little sanity in my crazy life.  I know it will take me a bit to get back to where I was with my life and with my creating but I'm glad to start on it again. I pulled out some old favorites to ease into it.

As always thanks so much for popping by and I promise I will see you very soon!!!  I'm so happy to finally have something to share again.

Bombshell Stamps Stars and Stripes Blog Hop!

Hi everyone!  I am excited to be playing again in the Bombshell stamps monthly blog hop.  This month the theme is stars and stripes as explained in the rules...

     This month's Hump Day Hop theme is Stars & Stripes Let's play with a couple of fun                patterns! Make it patriotic, or not...but be sure to use both stars AND stripes! 

If you came here from Alaine's blog you are still on the right track!  If not, you can start the whole hop here.

My card today is geared for my uncle who's birthday is coming up next week.  I always struggle with masculine cards!  So anyway, I incorporated the gold striped paper for the stripes and a fabulous gold shooting star behind the bike of freedom.  :)

Keep on hopping over to Kelli's blog to finish up the hop!  The entire hop list is below in case you wanted to go back or missed something along the way.

Red Carpet Ready, Baby!!!

Well thanks so much for joining me today for another Bombshell Stamps blog hop!!!  The rules were pretty easy this time...

This month, the theme is Red Carpet Ready. Let's glam up those Bombshells as if they were getting ready to strut their stuff on the Red Carpet! 

I took my bombshell and added a sexy pink and brown designed dress, which I adapted from the dress up downloads.  I added a few rhinestones at the waist and a pink flower in her hair to match it. I sponged the edges of the card base and added a couple strips coordinating dp and some old fashioned lace.

If you came here from Alison's blog, you are on your way!!   After you are done here you will carry on to Kim's blog.  The full list for the hop is below.

Get Well Soon!

This is a card I made last week for a co-worker who will be going in for surgery later this month.  I brought it in for our staff to all send well wishes.  She is a fan of pink and flowers and I took special care making a card I hope she really loves!  I had some mulberry (?) paper that had some leaves in it and I thought it made the perfect base.  I am so happy with the way this card turned out!

As always, thanks so much for stopping in this week!  I am hoping to post my card for DD's grad later this week, it is still a work in progress.  I love your feedback, so please feel free to let me  know what you think!

Happy Day Stamping! :)

Good morning!  I have been crazy busy working most days and running the kids to their activities and I haven't had a decent stamping area in so long.  So I neglected my supplies for entirely far too long!  My daughter signed up to be a Stampin Up! demo, so I got the new paper pumkin from her in order to kick start my motivation.  Cleaning and rearranging things in the basement also helped me a bit.  So I ended up signing up for a couple of swaps. 

The first one I have due is for bookmarks.  I was going to do the regular long paper kind, but felt like I wanted to get a bit more creative than that, so I decided to make some corner bookmarks.  I really have nothing new, it is all old stock and papers, etc, so I can't even help with what supplies I used.  I have made a note to self that I NEED to use the supplies I have and just replenish the essentials I run out of for quite some time.  I have several UNOPENED packages of dp to use up also...  Who does that??? 

Well, now I got those done and moved on to a caffienated swap due in July.  Hope you enjoy my bookmarks that I am sharing today!  I forgot how much I love to stamp!

As always, thanks for popping by.  Sorry I have been MIA for so so long!  Take care and please feel free to leave me feedback
