I know I haven't been around for awhile. I haven't even touched a stamp in a couple of weeks. School has been crazy, along with my grandson taking up a fair amount of time! Add to that the teenage drama that goes with being a mom and I have had no time for me. I plan to rectify that this weekend!
I'm posting this (gorgeous) image that I framed for a friend's birthday quite awhile back. I believe I colored it with ink on the lid of the stamp pad and an aquapainter. I stamped the saying on a piece of torn cork paper my sister gave to me. I wish the colors showed up better. Anyway, thanks for looking, and I hope to be back with more this weekend!
ETA: I thought I should tell you that this was made for my great friend Bevvie! Her blog is here! She is one of the funniest people I know!

My First Try at Digi Scrapping

My first try! I love it! Of course, like my friends say, it's not my talent but the subject matter that makes it look good. He sure is a cute one! That's my grandson Brayden! He is the love of my life! He's just yummy!
The paper and journal box are from Color My World by Rhonna Farrer. The strip of old paper is from Spontaneous Delight by Carrie Stephens. The "Authentic" word art is from Rough Riders by Sande Krieger. These were all found on Two Peas in a Bucket. These were all from Free kits too! You'll find LOTS of digital kits on Two Peas that are pretty reasonable too, and Gorgeous!
Thanks for looking!

Oooh, Sparkly!

I used the CPS sketch 96 for this card, and the previous one. It's from a couple of weeks ago but I loved it and kept it in mind. I sed the BG Two Scoops paper again, only this time I altered the paper. I used my stardust glitter pen to add some shimmer to the paper and the flowers. I even went over the letters. I love me some bling! It's nice because it adds a lot without any added bulk. The center of the flowers have a dot of Crystal Stickles in the middle. I took the second picture so you could see where I used the pen. The greeting is from JustRite, curlz font. Of course, looks much better in real life. So pretty.
Thanks for looking!


I thought I'd jump into my Basic Grey Two Scoops paper for some valentine cards. Yummy!
I started with Pretty in Pink CS and laid on some BG. The "Be Mine" is the curlz font from JustRite. Love it for Valentines Day! The ribbon is Wild Wasabi from SU. The flowers are Primas. I used wire to hold them all together. I haven't used wire in probably years, so I thought why not. I love it on this flower.
Thanks for looking!
