Welcome to the Chichiboulie Blog Hop!!!

Welcome to the Chichiboulie Blog Hop sponsored by Stamping Bella! If you've just happened upon my blog, you can start at the beginning on Emily's blog. If you came here from Karolyn's blog, you are on the right track! A list of all participants in the Chichiboulie blog hop can be found here.

For my project I created a Christmas card using Pia Puddingtop. I think she is just adorable!! I also used a new technique I learned with my blogging sisters SS round a couple weeks ago. It was to make lollipop flowers. I have never made them before, but decided to try one before making some for my SS. I used coordinating paper and made 4 layers. They are all attached with a little brad. You can't tell too well, but the image and the flower are both sprayed with gold glimmer mist to add a bit of sparkle and shine to the card. I just love how this card turned out! I think it is done up just enough with the DPs and the lollipop flower just adds the finishing touch!! Don't you agree?

How about a prize? In addition to the fabulous eye candy, we have decided to hide a prize somewhere along the hop! One pre-selected blogger will draw a random winner from the comments on her post, and the winner will receive a $25 Gift Voucher to Stamping Bella!!! The fun part is...we're not telling you who it is! So as you hop, make sure you leave comments on every post so you have a chance to win!! We will announce the winner on Friday in the Splitcoast forum. MWAH!

Thanks so much for stopping by! Now it's time to hop on over to Sparkle's blog and enjoy the fun she has there!
Make sure you let me know what you think before you leave!

November Birthday Cards

These are the 3 designs of cards I am offering for my next card class. My class members seem to like creating so I love having the chance to pull out older sets and new things to try withthem. We did a ton of holiday cards already so I am going to help restock the birthday supplies!! :) I always seems to run out of these types of cards.

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

Twilight Tuesday TTSC14

This is the card I made for the twilight Tuesday sketch challenge posted over at I just love Twilight and creating all things Twilight alos. I am very excited for the release of the new movie next month!!! I am going to go with my kids for my birthday... :) Anyways, I used chocolate striped GG, bravo burgandyCS, close to cocoa and choc chip CS and some small pearl like drops. I used my SU set 3 little words. I think I am happy with itbut I should have maybe done something on the creamy caramel just to tone it a bit more...

I am waiting for a B & N twilight stamp set I am getting from a generous lady on SCS, so I will be creating with that as soon as it gets here too!

Anyways, as always thanks for popping in and let me know what you think!

2 posts today! I sometimes think that isn't the best because then sometimes the first post doesn't get the love it might deserve... :) This card is for my blogging sisters challenge. It was to create a card using a non traditional fold. I did both the inside and the outside of the card. I am not used to decorating the inside, but it sure adds a lot to the card!

Anyways, I really love how this one turned out!!! I hope my secret sis loves it too... I am making her package with a holiday theme... I think that with the time of year it is OK to do.

Well, thanks for stopping in - again - and let me know what you think!

Pretty Purple Kini.........

This is the card I did for the stamping bella twisted challenge this week in the Stamping Bella Forums on Splitcoast Stampers. The challenge was to use a purple color and use paper piecing. I think she is super together and ready for teh beach for some fun!! Inside I just stamped Happy Birthday. I don't use her much and I am challenging myself to use more of my stamps I bought and never seem to pull out... :)

As always, thanks for popping by and let me know what you think!!

The Mummy, the Witch and the Pirate...

This is a bad picture but I need to get some batteries for my camera to get some better shots when I use thicker embellishments... I just love this stamp from Stamping Bella! The mummy, the witch and the pirate is just too cute!! I was at my LS today and got some DP 2 for 1 and the embellishments were 25% off... woohoo! I got a pkg of halloween flowers and also a package of 4 halloween ribbons. Too cute! I may have to make a couple cards to send my friends in Calgary!!! Love them!

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

I am so excited for the free digi images that MFT is giving away this weekend (redeem code freedigi)!! Thanks so much Kim!! I chose Baby it's Cold Outside as my free digital image. I have not really used them and they could never replace my stamps and ink ut I did have fun and will enjoy making more cards with it!

Anyhow, this is just a quick one but I would love to know what you think! Thanks so much for popping in and see you soon!

MMMMMM....... Delicious!!

OK, I really need some input on this one! It is my first recipe swap and I am not really sure how bad this is... and I have 2 spots for this swap. It is crock pot recipes and I LOVE my crock pot! I just don't want to dissapoint anyone else in the swap! I have the recipe and base for my second set and I hope to have these in the mail this weekend.

I printed the recipe on card stock and found the cutest DP in my local scrap store that reminded me of homestyle cookin'... I had to use an embellishment and 2 layers. I needed something and so I put n the acorns, since I don't have much food type themed stamps that would work too good. I think looking now I could have used something other than the amythest to tie it together better.

Anyhoo... thanks for popping in and as always your feedback is all read and appreciated!!! See you soon!

Delightful Day

I am so sorry to have neglected my blog!! I feel like I didn't stamp in ages, but I have a card today and some Halloween goodies in the next couple days I want to post that my 4 yo helped me with...

This one is a card I made because I wanted to use more than the 1 embellishment I usually do. I decided to layer some paper and add some lacy ribbon and shiny pearl dots. I think it turned out pretty good! I am hoping to be back in the stamping swing this week and keep in gear. I had a good day because I finally got some mojo AND a chance to get to my table! Whoot!

Thanks so much for popping by and as always, I love hearing what you think!
