For Teresa

I decided to make a set of cards for my sister Teresa then I stumbled across the Stationery Box in the SCS Galleries and just ahd to try it.





I stuck a Ghiradelli Chocolate in the place of Postage Stamps.
So here it is.

The cardstock is Bazzil, Print is SU, Punch is SU Curvy Label
I used Sizzix Alum Die for the Friends Book. I created pages on the computer.

My new favorite flower

The local nursery was cleaning out the annuals, whatever fit in a box for $1. The box he handed me was quite large and I wasn't knowledgeable of annuals so I just picked odd plants.
This being one, and I went back a few weeks later after it had bloomed to get more!
I now know that is is clsely related to Hollyhocks.
I went up yesterday and talked to Bev about getting hollyhocks, which she is out of. Of course! LOL



















But she told me that Lavatera could drop seeds!

That's a Geranium?

My MIL Diane gave me this plant.

She has this fetish for Geraniums which is a plant I do not like, the wind blows and it falls apart.
Well I was ooohing over this one and she informed me it was one of those things I don't like.

Any one know what type it is? I'd love to know. She can't remember where she bought it either.


Beagle vs Hen

THis is hilarious!
Our Joker is a 3 year old Beagle... A DOG!

 Our friends Judy and Leon gave Clint this hen a month ago and she rules over all the critters here. Our great hunter cat Louie is even afraid of her! Clint named her Francine

I toss bread and old cereal off the deck for her, the duck and the geese, so now when  i am on the deck she comes running. She has now decided if Joker is off the deck he can stay off!.

He barks at her and she charges at him! He will either walk away after a bit or sit down and whine about it!

Francine has even come up on the deck and either won't let the dogs or cats out, or in if they are out.. Max usually just leaps up onto the railing to avoid her.

A random fact

So far this year I have made 269 cards.
That does not include artsy projects or scarp books.. just cards!

I also noticed I haven't been putting all my card on here.. shame on me! LOL

For my Great Nephew Payton

I made this for my great nephew Payton's B'day this week. It's hard making cards for teenage boys! Little Boys like cute stuff still and men just like to be remembered, but a teen!

This image is from my friend Laurie.. someday I should buy this stamp!

I spent a ton of time online looking at wolves and came across a site from the DNR. I never realized wolves just look dirty! LOL

I colored him using SU Pastels
his eyes are done using Spica pens

The layout is a CASE from Amy Celona

it's folded in half in front!





Stamps: Wolf
Paper: Taken with Teal and Chocolate Cip and Tempting Turquoise
Ink: SU Pastels and Spica Glitter Pens
Accessories: Cuttle Bug Paisely

October BRAK

his layout came from Verve in 2008

I think it was intended for a 2 sided DS, but I did it using one print and 3 solids so I had more color.

All of the Card Stock is from Bazzil, the print is from Doodlebug Spring Garden 1996.
I have to stop hoarding the pretty papers! LOL

The sentiment is SU "On Your B'day" stamped with Lovely Lilac

Punches are all SU

Cuttle Bug Embossing Folders

and just a bit of 'bling it' stones by Basic Grey




Stamps: On Your Birthfay
Paper: Bazzil
Ink: Lovely Lilac

My darling little Max

He is so sound asleep!
He was curled up so sweetly and I said his name and he arched around backwards.... staying asleep!

Big Bear

This is my first card using my newest Cricut Cartridge WILDLIFE
I am not too sure I like how the bears look.
Maybe I will do the layers the same color, just dimensionalized!

This is for the Stamp 2 Spend Color Challenge; Rust, Gold, Green and Brown
and Mojo 156

I Cuttle Bugged the Green & Brown with Dots then the Rust is Crimped, I did that at an angle and it got weird on me!


Stamps: none
Paper: Really Rust, Old Olive and misc Browns
Ink: none
Accessories: Gold Thread and a Hardware piece

I found some Mojo!

I made this card for my Divine Secret Sister

I used the Cricut Pogoda and Digi Designs by Mo

These 3 I did up to CASE a card on SCS.. be darned if I could find it again! I used some of hte images I've gotten from friends. Colored them up using Koh-i-nor Pencils

This Mini Easel card is CASE'd too. My friend Laurie made one similar for my b'day and I really like this idea.

Mojo #148

I followed the SU Color Coach all the way on this one.

That DS Paper is just something I found at my lss that I just had to have.

I used the Cricut to cut out all of the pieces, everything is 1/8" smaller than the last.

I used this card for a swap with the No More Drama Ladies and I sent one to my DSS Little Sister (shh she doesn't know who I am yet! )




Stamps: SU Country Morning
Paper: Taken with Teal, Tempting Turquoise, Certainly Celery, Blush Blossom and Apricot Appeal OH and Basic Black
Ink: Koh-i-nor pencils with Baby Oil Gel
Accessories: Cricut and Cuttle Bug Folders

Corrosive Challenge #80

I found something to do today!
 
A friend sent me many House Mouse images to color and I'd been playing around with my Cricut Cartridge "Story Book"

I figured if I lay it out just right I could cut around the image already stamped, then mat that.

Not bad! A bit off centered, but I can live with that.

Then I came across the Corrosive Challenge for Old Olive and Real Red.

Well since I'd already used Real Red for my mat... why not!



Stamps: House Mouse
Paper: Whisper White, Real Red and Old Olive
Ink: Koh - i- nor Pencils
Accessories: Dots CB Folder and Cricut Story Book

Thanks so much for looking!
