Here’s a Hug

heres a hug

Is this NOT adorable? This is a new clear set I got from Stampin Treasures by Hero Arts called Happy Everything! BEWARE I bought a TON of stuff when I went there.

I love the idea that I can send someone a “hug” in the mail! LOL! I always wanted a stamp like that.

I made this for a PSF of mine named Pam Wilson. Its actually for her husband Rodney. He has Cancer and things aren’t going so great. Prayers are appreciated. I thought this may cheer him up! If you want to send a card contact me.

I showed it to my husband and told him where it was going. My husband said NO WAY! Too GIRLY!

Well, after that comment, now I don’t know if I should send it. I tried to not be “girly”. What do you think??? Send it or not?

I was going for CHEERY! NOT GIRLY!

The colors are red, cameo, and celery. I loved the ribbon and that was my starting point. The plastic flower is from American Crafts Green House collection. Love them!! Found them at AC Moore last weekend. Colored the image with my Prisma Markers. I’m gettin there! Slowly! LOL!

I’d appreciate some feedback on this one. I can always make another-but was sorta likin this one.

Polka-dot Birthday Party!

penguin polka

I love Memory Box paper, and recently got some of their stamps!

This cute penguin came from a stamp expo I attended, and the booth was called Bella Art.

I got the PP from Making Memories Cheeky collection in Emery a week ago. When I saw the polka-dots on the penguin’s party hat, I knew they were meant to be matched together! Going with the polka-dot theme I decided to do a hinge top card, and used brads along to seam. Isn’t this so cute?

It measures 4 1/4 x 6. I started it for the LSC. Leave it plain, no backgrounds or cuttlebuggin. Well, I obviously FAILED miserably! But thats ok! I love it! AND I love my cuttlebug! I dont care if I use it on every card- I call it gettin my monies worth. Finally an expensive MUST have that is worth every cent. 

I also colored it using my New! Prisma markers. The color are just so vibrant! LOVE THEM!

I think I’m sending this one to Shane as well.

Hope you get the time to make one or more too!

Mytime Mail and a Saturday Sketch!

May 12, 2007 Author: mytime | Filed under: Cards, Mytime Mail, Saturday Sketch

magazines  Happy Saturday! Lets start the weekend off with some goodies!

I received these 4 magazines from Paper Crafts, along with a lovely handmade card from one of the editors there, after receiving a submission of mine that was accepted! YAHOOOO!

I actually have all 4 of these already, so figured YOU may not! So this is the Mytime Mail!

Respond to this post with what your DREAM Mother’s Day would consist of! I’d love to read about it. It could be how you’d like to spend the day, a favorite gift, whatever you want to share. Could be a favorite memory. Just gush!

We are actually celebrating “Mother’s Day” today. Since everyone will be out tomorrow. I will go shopping (as usual) and to lunch at my favorite place TGIFridays! Love that place. I hope to stamp the rest of the day FOR FUN!!!

Noah had his FIRST T-Ball game today. OMW! More on that later. I would rather go through labor again than indure the torchure that came with him there. Wait till you see the photos! 

So here is the sketch for today!

thinking of you

I made this card for a friend who just lost her grandfather. He was 99!!! OMW! I hope to live that long. Anyway I thought a Thinking of You was appropriate.

Here is the original sketch. I changed it a bit. This card is a 6×6. Love that size sometimes.

This card was done Using NEW! K & Co paper. It has a nice brushed gold effect on the flowers. Their PP is just gorgeous!

I used my sets from Green Grass called Flourishing and Card Greetings. The ink is versamagic dew drops. Its has a nice matte look. The Thinking of You was embossed with Gold. Very elegant card I thought. The flower is by Bazzill. Its their assortment pack. I love them so much!!!!

Hope you like it and have fun with it! This is the time to dust off the larger stamps you may have and use them!

If you participate in the sketch post a link here so I can comment!

I will choose the Mytime Mail winner tomorrow evening after my kids go to sleep!

Enjoy the weekend!
