Popped Up, Charmed and CASEd

Still far from as pretty as Stamp Crave's but closer! LOL

1 I am in love with this punch!

2 I want more of this paper! I have no idea what it is, I forgot like a dummy to keep that strip off the bottom! It is 2 sided and I really liked it!

3. I can't get enough of stampcrave's card she made! LOL
 Paper Crafts sent me a subscription letter and inside was 1 card sketch recipe

Turned out kinda cute!

My mom has these drawer units full of things, she said I could help myself. Well I grabbed a couple tassels and tiny flowers. She said I had to make something if I was gonna take stuff! LOL

I did, I did!
I was asked to try this technique featured on the home page at SCS. so .... I did!

It was complicated to me, I had to watch the video and do the step by step instructions. I took me all day! LOL

CCC11 May cards

I started this OSW over a year ago. I bought the paper from Archiver’s in December 2009!
I bought 11 sheets of DP and enough card stock to do the whole years challenge.
I cut out all the DP into OSW’s…. Only to forget which template went with each baggie later. LOL
Well the CS I picked for this paper was Bazill Bling and I decided I didn’t like it as a bas after all.
So I just put the pieces aside!
I got a friend to help me pick a new CS out and went a different way .. No clue which OSW template this is for anymore.
They are together and done, that’s all I cared about at this point! I’ve never procrastinated a whole year!
I got the first 5 uploaded and the ‘details’ page was nowhere to be found!
I used the Cricut on a couple for the Bases “Wild Card Cartridge”
Cuttle Bug Folders, some old Snowflake stickers, a funky fiber in silver and white, SU Punches, wired ribbon,
To see individual photos for each card, please visit my SCS Gallery!

CCC11 April cards too!

Here's 4 more for my April goal.
I was thinking if I do 6-10 a month I will have more than plenty to share...OWH and my older sister, maybe a nursing home too if I find one that will take them.

I feel just awful I can not remember who i got the images from.
I kept her envelope on my desk, but i did a huge rearrange in here and lots more than just my marbles!

My friend Laurie cut these out for me using her Top Note Die. (I must get one of them)

Colored with Koh-i-nor Pencils and Baby Oil Gel (thank you Chris for that tip!)

And almost back together

Well we'll see how I like this new space! LOL

During the chaos!

 Oh this is just awdul! But it was my descion!!
Cutting out the half wall where the closet was and turning the desk gave me 2' more in width!Actually it gave me an additional 2'x5' space!

My poor room got attacked!

 Standing in the doorway looking in, straight at the desk

 That window faces North, and I dropped a bottle of stamp cleaner on the floor, the next day it was frozen!
 My poor table.. I sit there to color and stamp.Now I can't even find it! Stamps and ink, and paper in the corner.
 TV and music on the South wall
The cats chair, and oh my addiction! those little plastic drawer units!

Tea Time with Strawberries

I so CASE'd this card from
httpwww.splitcoaststampers.comgalleryphoto1858917s ort=&page=&sortby=&sorttime=&sortd ir=

far from as 'pretty' as hers, but it's what I came up with. I need a different paper I think!

I used a sheet of Graphic 45 paper... loved it till I cut it up!
It was Miss Manners

Christmas Cards for 2011

 I CASE'd this layout from Le blog de Cath
The Green sparkly dot paper is from my scraps stash

 I CASE'd this layout from Le blog de Cath

The image is one form a SWAP I joined. Sorry no clue what stamp it is or who makes it!

I used CB Folder Dots then a Gold Leafing pen

I kinked my base a tiny bit and so I "fixed" it!

It actually still worked well for the sketch!
The CS is Bazill; Sprout, Aloe Vera, Pear and Leap Frog

The stamp is a a clear one I borrowed.
And 3 Dew Drops!

Holiday Greetings!

My mom and Raye Lynn (sister) bought this big book of printed Christmas DP.
Card stock actually, and it had 3 or 4 sheets of each design and they shared with me!

I had also printed out MOJO 2010 Sketch book and gave them a copy.

I challenged them to make a card using one of the sketches. I'd do it too just to see how different they would turn out.

So my mom picked one of the sketches and Raye picked a paper.

It has sleighs on it and my very first thought was the "Santa told me" story. Well once I cut the DP I no longer had that thought!

The CS is from Archivers. AC brand. Mostly shades of Grey but the small border punch piece and the base is a blue.
The Nesties is Label #9 a gift form my SCS Friend holly! (thank you so much)
the Stamp is SU and the ink SU Night of Navy
The ribbon, my mom gave and it took the WHOLE spool to do these 8 cards! Uff Da!
It was from her stash that could be from the 70's (she hoards ribbon i tell ya! LOL) I love looking in those drawers... she has tons, but I am not much into using it on cards.. I'm trying though!

Thank you for looking!


He looks so innocent doesn't he? Well let me tell you!
He runs through the house like a mad man (Crazy cat!) He found a cap from a pop bottle and he played with that thing, up and downt he hallway all night long! Wehn we would get up to go take it away.. he would pick it up and run away with it! HE knew!!
He can not just walk past the other crittes, he has to attack them!
Poor Joker can't sleep without Wilbur walking up and biting his feet.. he is such a brat!

You've seen pics of Louie, he's is nearly 2' long his head is the size of a soft ball and he weighs about 20#. Wilbur likes to sneak up behind him and jump on him.. no brains I tell ya! Louie couldn't care less though thankfully!

 Anti Social too! We can not pet him unless it's on his terms. If he walks by and I just reach out and touch him, he makes this odd noise and starts cleaning himself!
But now when he wants attention he is in your face demanding it! This litte guy can purr too! Holy buckets is he loud!
We were laying in bed watching TV and Wilbur was on my pillow purring ... I could feel it!

Last night he wanted attention, so he was in my lap, then all of a sudden he was on my desk.. in my way as you can see. So I set him on the floor.. he came right back up in front of the screen! BRAT!
I was posting on SCS and I had to look around him to find the button.. he was following the mouse!
Oh now I am  laughing so hard at him, this was too much!
I wish I had gotten a picture of him with a mirror I set down at his level Between him and Joker I was in tears!  Wilbur was angry about this other CAT and Joker wanted to play wit the new DOG!
