Friendship is sacred...

I made this card for my Bella Sis. She has been so awesome to me and I feel like I have been not so
good to her back. I am going to send this along with a bella stamp and some images I can stamp off for her... I also added a note for her to catch up. I hope she likes it and isn't too angry with me for getting a little behind...

Thanks for stpooing in and as always I would love to know what you think! Thanks!

Finishing up some SS challenges

I am finishing the last of my SS challenges for my Sassy Stampers blogging sisters group. This challenge was to create a card showcasing something you love to do. I LOVE to read! Most everything! I especially love when Coles or CHapters has their 4 for $10 clearances, because I stock up on a few books. Sadly the best ones I can get through in a day or two so I go through a lot of books... Oh well.

So this is my card to show off my love of reading. I wanted to put something on it a little different, so instead of a flower or something I created a mini book to use on the bottom corner, and I am really pleased with how it turned out! I also added a couple of sparkle gems onto the side just to add a little something extra. I am pretty happy with how it turned out!!

Thanks for popping in and as always I would love to know what you think!!

Where does the time go???

I can't believe my baby girl is 9!!! I feel so old!

I made this card for her birthday yesterday using the same sketch from the bella sketch challenge below. I loved that sketch and I think this card turned out even better than the 1st one, so I was pleased with it.

We had some friends of Madi's over in the afternoon for her party and then in the evening we had family over for a BBQ and some fun. All said I think the day was a success and now my girl is off to her friends cottage for a few days. I have a ball tournament today so we will be busy with that and then it is back to work tomorrow.

As Always, thanks for stopping by and let me know what you think!!

Happy Birthday Madi!!!

A twisted challenge...

I made this for the Bella Twisted challenge 7. The challenge was to create a card with some bling on it. I used some rhinestone brads, lumiere on her wings, stickles on her wand, skirt and shoe laces and sprayed the whole thing with glimmer mist. I feel like I have not done much but then I was gone a week, but I am a bit disappointed in this card because I felt like I could do much better. Anyways, I am off to bed. I am working on some things for Madi's party bags for Saturday so I will be posting up some of those things shortly! :)

As always, thanks for stopping by and please let me know what you think. I love feedback!!

Stamping Bella Summah!

This is a card I made that was supposed to show a summer theme. Ice cream always screams summah to me! I used this stamping bella for my card. I really don't like how the background turned out though and am not thrilled with this card in the end. I used stickles on her head band and 2 purple brads to match her ice cream on the side.

I will be gone this week so I may post something tomorrow but then I am gone till the 20th. I will be back with some new things then!! Anyways, thanks for popping by and let me know what you think!

Have a great week!

Sassy Stampers SS Challenge

The challenge was to create a card using a technique new to you. I tried a faux suede, I soaked my piece of CS and then pulled apart so I had the inside left. I lightly sponged it with the matching ink and then distressed the edges of the cardstock on the paper and the image... I finished it off with 2 small brass brads.

Thanks for stopping by and as always let me know what you think!

Secret Sisters, Challenges and fun!

I feel like I have been AWOl from my blog forever but it was just over a week. I have a few things to post for you this week, though. The first is an item I created for my Sassy Stampers blog secret sister challenge to alter an item. I found these great oversize clothes clips the other day and knew I wanted to alter one right away! I love how it turned out and will have to go back and stock up on these. I think they would make great gifts also.

My DD is here this month to visit and I am hoping she wants to stamp with me maybe today! I miss having her here to create with me...

So have a great day and I will be back in a day or so with another project! As always thanks for stopping by and let me know what you think!
