Check it out!

New Goodies IN STOCK!!!! Some must haves, and favorites!

Can you say PRIMA?  Thats right the new prima stuff is in. A MUST SEE!

How about Basic Grey? All the New! 6×6 pads in stock too.

I won’t even begin to mention the cuttlebug stuff-OMG!  B-R-O-K-E! (and lovin it)

AND I just got word from Christine at All That Scraps that Whisker’s is making his debut! There are 3 to choose from! This one is my favorite, so I had to make a sample. He is on the homepage. I feel like this is great for any occasion.


Sorry for the blurry photo-too much coffee and photos in my kitchen at night are not cool!

This is Whiskers! Colored with prismacolor pencils and gamsol. Had to use a Sprite prima. You have to get these! They are my favorite from Prima by far! So in love!!!

Cardstock is by Bazzil. Also used Piggy Tales Green Forrest patterned paper. I took my Sakura glitterpen, and outlined all the flowers (cant really tell in photo). I just love the spring colors, and the fact that this is almost an all occasion card!

Think Pink sentiment from small sayings SU!

Ribbon from Jody! Hey, at least I use what I buy right?

Jewel is from Target $1 spot! Gotta love a little more bling.

Here is a link to Christine’s blog. She chats about all the new goodies that she has at All That Scraps. Be sure to check it out.

Have a nice night everyone. Happy Shopping.

Stamp for a good cause!

Apr 3, 2007 Author: mytime | Filed under: Cards


Beth (MyPrecious) alerted me to a little boy Dylan she knows who has been diagnosed with Leukemia. She posted a request found here, for people to RAK him with cards! You can also find his story there as well.

How could I not send a card? I make ton to sit in a storage box, why not one to actually send to a special child?

I hope you will join me in this. Dust off a boy set, or any set really and lets RAK him! I know first hand the joy a simple handmade card can bring. Alexa has received hundreds! Probably even a thousand if I counted.

Now about the card-You guessed it Lizzie Anne Designs All Guy  (btw no I don’t design for her-I saw the banner ad she had on SCS and bought 3 sets!LOL! Im just really likin her style)

So if you are wondering what all the jumbled letters are in the background you obviously don’t have an XBOX addicted 4 yo boy like I do. To do most of the fighting you have letter combos -like xxyab for example! LOL! Thats how I did the background!

I used a Library stamp from ProvoCraft for that. Made it quick to do the combos. I looked at the controller, and copied the button arrangement. Alphabits by SU! were for the round buttons on the side panel.  See there is more thought to this simple card that you thought huh?

I used A Muse candy for the buttons. I was pretty happy with this, and hope Dylan likes it. It is like a video game so whats not to like right?

CC108! Celebrate 2 years! and Lizzie Anne Designs stamps

Apr 3, 2007 Author: mytime | Filed under: Cards

YEAH! This is to celebrate 2 years of color challenges. Check it out!

So to celebrate Emily asked if we would make a card for Daven’s birthday with color challenge one of 108. Here is my submission.


This is for Daven. He is the MAIN MAN! The creator and king of Splitcoaststampers! Happy Birthday Daven! I thought this card was SO PERFECT for him.

I just got this awesome All Guy stamp set by Lizzie Anne Designs yesterday. Perfect timing. I am on a mission to expand my guy sets. I’m having fun with this one.

Color challenge was Kraft, red & black. Ill admit the Kraft threw me off a bit, but hey thats why its a challenge right? I stamped the computer in caramel on glossy white. Colored the screen with my makers. Love coloring on glossy white with markers lately.

Ribbon is from Jody’s share (big surprise right?).

For Beate- Funky Flower Trio


This is the second color challenge. Use Pretty in Pink, Bravo Burgundy, and  Always Artichoke. Since I had the Kraft, from making Daven’s card, I decided to use it for Beate’s card.

I went with Craft ink, and glossy white cardstock. In the above colors & white craft ink as well.

Stamps are also from Lizzy Anne Designs Funky Floral . Love that set too.

Ribbon-again from Jody! Jewels in the center of flowers are by A Muse.

Fore Your Birthday!

Another Guy card- 


Yet another guy card. This one also uses the All Guy  set by Lizzie Anne. I’m just havin fun with it.

When I saw this “golf” image all I thought of was the argyle, and making my own ball! So I did. I used my cuttlebug Tiny Bubbles embossing folder, and a circle punch for the ball. Cut huh?

The paper/notecard is by A Muse. Colored with SU markers. Flag is a piece or red cardstock cut out/layered.

Ribbon is from Jody, and is May Arts stitched ribbon.

Motorcycle in motion-yet another guy card!


OK another guy card! Its sort of fun to use non flower images once in a while! LOL!

So I used the “Donna” technique to make this motorcylce look like its zoomin across the card. Its another from the All Guy  set by Lizzie Anne. I thought the stitched ribbon looked like a road! LOL!

I just got these rub on’s by Basic Grey- Wholy Cow?? I don’t know check Jacksonbelles ebay store!

Anyway, when I saw the ‘batteries not included” I thought it was perfect. the Guy stuff is stamped twice. Hope you likey! These were so fun! Now you know where I’ve been! LOL!

A Muse

Apr 3, 2007 Author: mytime | Filed under: Cards

So here a just a few samples with my A Muse goodies. I *LOVE* A Muse stamps and note-cards. Lets not forget May Arts Polka Dot ribbon. The only problem I have is keeping it simple! That is the A Muse way! LOL! So these are my attempts at “simple”

I love this one!


This stamp is called Bunny Line. Isn’t it cute?

It uses the cottage green pinwheel note-card. White may arts ribbon.

I stamped the bunnies in black then colored with pink, and gray markers.

I cut the one bunny out, and layered him over the original. The sentiment is from Love ya bunches by SU!

 Hay Thanks-

hay thanks

Is this not cute? I used the Limepeel band notecard for my “grass”. The ‘hay” sentiment is rough edges alpha, and the thanks is Tiny Talk by SU! I used the “chicks in a row” from A Muse, and it is stamped on an acetate sheet in black StazOn. I colored the back with colorbox chalk ink, and a  blender pen. Glue dots behind the chick hold it onto the A Muse notecard.

Stamped the tractor, and hay wagon in black as well. Colored in. The Hay is stamped on saffron cardstock then cut and on dimensionals for fun!

I thought this was cute-but feels like its missing “something”. But trying to keep it simple, so I left it alone!

Hen’s Night Out

hens night

I love this little hen! I used my cuttlebug scalloped die to make this.

The hen is stamped in black. A Singlo white gel pen was used to color her in. I used a yellow glitter pen for her beak, and feet. Isn’t she cute?

Ribbon is May Arts.

Hen’s Night Out sentiment is my Missy B Designs.

So what do you think?
