Hey there ladies!!! How are you?? Since it is Friday night, I just have a QUICK post for you!!! So SORRY! Eric got home early from work and well.......need I say more!!! We really don't see much of each other lately, now that I have gone back to work!! Kyah was SO excited when he came home!!! So...they are parked on the couch watching The Little Mermaid!!! How SWEET!! I gotta tell ya!!! A dad who watches Disney with his daughter!!! Let alone a Disney Princess movie!!! That's MY man!!!
Ok...sorry...I got a little misty there!!! Haha!!! Here is my latest Anya creation. She is a TRUE princess!! This is in honor of the final day for you to get your entries in for their DT call!! So...what are you waiting for!! Alright...that will be the last reminder!!! Anyhoo....This is my Princess and Kyah wanted to share HER entry, in the Kids contest, going on over at Club Anya!!! I have a link on my sidebar, if you are interested!!! Hope you all are FANTABULOUS!!! I will see you later this weekend, K?? more thing! I used SU CS and layered some Bo Bunny paper, my Sistah Carri had sent me, during our last Bella Sistah round!! What do you think Carri??? I just LOVE that paper!! I used my Prisma and Copic markers, along with my Spica marker!! I used some white organdy ribbon, I picked up at Joann's, and what was left of my K&Co green bling!! I REALLY dug that bling!! I used Stickles on the wand, so it would look different than the Spica glitter. Anyway, I finished this card with my Justrite stamper and Nesties!!! I got my Justrite stamper from my AWESOME friend Cheri!!! Thanks SO much Cheri!! She got it for me, when we exchanged gifts at Christmas time!!! I LOVE to share and so does she!! I think this is the first I have gotten to use it!! HOpe you enjoy! I'm out of here!! ENJOY LIFE!!!

**I did have others to share,but, Kyah and I had a BLAST tonight and we just HAD to share!!!!

Happy Friday everyone!!! So....what's up for the weekend?? Anything exciting??? As for me, I am going to go and sort Girl Scout cookies today!!! A whole 68 cases worth!!!! Can you believe it?? My girls sold quite a bit for this first round!!! Anyway, the rest of the weekend will probably involve hangin' out at home!!! Hey, speaking of the weekend, that reminds me of a few things!!! You are probably tired of hearing this, but, don't forget to submit your creations for the TGF & Club Anya DT!!!! And go visit Javablustamper & Friends, where you have a chance to win a Bella Stamp!!! YAY!!!
There is one piece of exciting news I have to share with you all!! I got an email tonight from Copic!! I was SO shocked!!! It was an application for an upcoming certification class!! I submitted my name about 6 months ago or so!!! I didn't think I would get a chance to go!! Now, just because I got this email, apparently does not mean I am in!!! It's just an opportunity to be included in the class!! It is based on the order the apps are received, I am sure!! So.....wish me luck!! I am SO psyched!!!!
Ok...Check out my creation, would ya!!! I LOVE how this came out!!! HOpe you agree!! I used my NEW Chef Ian set and my Basic Grey Cupcake paper!! What a match...huh? Can you see the paper piecing?? I HAD to make this card for Kyah's friend, who has a birthday coming up!!! is SO appropriate!!! It's Chef Ian FOR Ian!!! Way cool!!! Imagine that.....IAN!!! SHHHHH mom.....don't tell him!!! You can show him this post....after he gets this in the mail!!! Okay??? Hope he likes it!!!
So...I have been a cardmaking fool tonight!! Haha! However, I will save some for tomorrow!! I am a bit tired and should get SOME sleep!! Hehe!!! Let me know what you think of Chef Ian and I will be back to chat tomorrow!! Thanks SO much for stopping by; have an AWESOME Friday!!! ENJOY LIFE!!!!

Hi there ladies how are you?? How was your Wednesday?? Halfway thru the week guys!! Just a few more days until the NEW DT is announced for The Greeting Farm & Club Anya too!! Hope you got your ceations in!!! Good luck to you all!! It will be a TOUGH decision, that's for sure!!! So MUCH talent out there!!! You all are AWESOME!!! I talked to one of my friends,yesterday, and she seemed kind of down. She just wasn't herself, ya know? I am sure you all have been there! Right? And ... you probably could have used a little pick me up, huh?? Well....a pick me up, she shall get!!! Last night I set to work on something to lift her spirits and let her know I was thinking of her!! I wanted to use my NEW Light Up Set, from TGF!! I had to get this set, because I felt it would be truly versatile!! Anyway, I had an idea in my head, which took a bit to create. I was more than a tad frustrated, I must admit!!! I was not even sure if it would make it to my friend. I considered starting over!! I first used my Copic & Prisma markers, together, to color in the image. I REALLY liked the color I produced, by blending them. However, I just couldn't match the paper!! You know HAS to flow!! Sometimes I think I am TOO picky!! Haha! To make a LONG story short,for your sake, I ended up going BACK over the COOL blended color. I HAD to , in order for it to "JUST GO", and complement the other colors involved. The other issue I had was putting the bling on. I usually have NO issue, in this department. Last night was nerve racking, I ended up using super glue to adhere them and MAN, what a MESS!! I was still peeling glue off my fingers today!! I FINALLY had it to where it was acceptable, but, I was not sure wether to share it with you all or not! Thanks to my GREAT friend Janna, I decided to! She encouraged me to go ahead! it is!! Thank you SO much Janna!! I hope you all like it!! I REALLY hope she likes it and that it will CHEER her up!!! That's what really matters most, now doesn't it! I think next time I use this set....I will have to paper piece it!!! I have seen it used in that way and it looked BEAUTIFUL!!!
Don't forget to check in over at Javablustamper & Friends, for the latest challenge and PRIZE!!! This time around the PRIZE is a BELLA STAMP!!!! Thanks for reading my WHOLE, LONG drawn out story!!! You guys are THE BEST!!!! So glad you stopped by to share with me!!! Hope to see you next time!!! ENJOY LIFE!!!!


Hey all, how was your day?? Hope you had a good one!! Man.....did I post and run this morning or what??!! I checked it out, after I got home this afternoon, and realized that I didn't list what I used! AND...the girls names? Were all squished together!! SORRY about that ladies!! How LAME am I?? So....the only thing I think you wouldn't know, is that the DP was from My Minds Eye. Now...just a few things tonight, for I am tired and must get to bed!
One....don't forget....DT call for TGF & Club Anya ends 3/1!! Get your stuff in ladies, you all are WAY talented!!! OK....number two.....don't forget to head over to Javablustamper & Friends!! Great challenge going on, with a PRIZE too!!!
And......finally??? I have this SUPER cute card to share!!!! It is Flopsey from MFT stamps! Are you familiar?? I thought you would like to see something DIFFERENT for a change here!! Haha!! I WAS sharing my fettish with you, of TGF!!! So.....thought you might enjoy something NEW!!! Hope you like it!!! I colored this CUTIE in with my Prisma & Copic markers;layered him on My Minds Eye DP and layered that on SU CS. I used some Bella embellies and even finished it off with a MFT sentiment. However, the sentiment is from a seperate set. Hope you have a GREAT night, although I think it is probably considered morning, by now!!! Haha! Anyway, I will see you tomorrow evening!! So glad you were HERE!! ENJOY LIFE!!!!
~~PS. I sure do LOVE my new light!! Don't you?? What a difference!!

Can you believe it is Sunday already??? GEEZ!! This weekend flew,didn't it?? are you?? What did you do this weekend?? Me?? I re-arranged my craft area!! Imagine it up...yet AGAIN!!! Haha!! So, anyhow, did you visit The Greeting Farm, like I said ?? Well?? Did ya, did ya?? If you did...then you may have seen the Sketch Challenge, Marie has posted on her blog. Not to mention, ALL the AWESOME cards!! You ladies are SO talented!!! MAN!!!! Did you notice that with that challenge, comes a possible PRIZE?? YEP!!! Gotta LOVE the prizes!!! You should go check it out; it's on THE BLOG. You will find a link to THE BLOG at the top of her home page.
Alright....onto the FUN stuff!!! Although, I do have to tell you a little somethin', somethin' about this card first!! I was at ACM, with my coupon, as always and I stumbled across some super sale ribbon!!! I found THE perfect ribbon for Ian, from TGF!!! I was WAY excited and HAD to get it OF COURSE!!! At first I thought it would go great with the Military Ian, but, when it came out I realized I may not use it. Unfortunately, I have No one to make a card for with it. Now, that isn't to say I won't get it later and make some cards for the Brave men and women, serving our country, that I don't know!!! I would LOVE to do that and I just may. The budget is still a little tight, if you know what I mean.....and I am sure you do! Therefore, I KNEW it would go PERFECTLY with the Skater Ian!!! He is TOTALLY COOL DUDE!!! Haha! he is!!!! This is the card I entered in The Greeting Farms' sketch challenge. I layered some misc. DP on my Basic Grey CS and added some Bordering Blue. I also used my CB to emboss some SU Old Olive, to add to my background. I colored Ian in with my Prisma and Copic markers; I also added a little Spica to his skateboard, for effect! I finished off my creation with another GinaK sentiment! This one is from the Little Tee's set. I hope you enjoy my card and I am REALLY glad you stopped by!! It means SO much, to share my creations with you!!! Have an AWESOME night and come back again SOON!!! Oh, by the way, don't forget to head over to Javablustamper & Friends!! There is a GREAT challenge going on there with a GREAT prize!!! Oh my!!! There is also a challenge at Club Anya!! So...get involved!! Have fun!! Take care all and remember to ENJOY LIFE!!!!!

Happy Weekend everybody!!! How are you?? Seriously!!! Be honest!!! Ok, well, I am GREAT!!! Let me first just SHOUT.."I got my Miss Anya's"!! YAY!! Sorry, I'm good now! Haha! Alright, I decided to go ahead and try my hand at the "Curious Case" contest, going on over at the Club Anya blog!! Haven't visited there yet?? Oh my.....better go NOW!!!! They are having a contest and for the contest, you are to CASE your FAVE card form the TGF gallery!!! have heard of TGF, have you not?? Oh my,AGAIN!!! If you have NOT?? Follow my side bar down and you will find the link to take you there!!! The Farm is my NEW found LOVE!!! Hehe!! Alright....I know...a LITTLE crazy, right?? go see for yourself!!! See how you feel, after you have seen all the AWESOME stamps they have!!!! Ok, I got off track there, didn't I ?? Back to the card....
The card I CASE'd is by the WONDERFULLY talented "The Redhaired Girl"!!! I LOVED her card, so that is the one I chose!!! You can check it.....HERE! I got NEW DP yesterday, at ACM. I couldn't resist the sale; I got a 12x12 paper pad, by My Minds Eye!! The original price was $19.99 and it was on sale for $10.00!!! Good deal,right?? Right!!!! So I just HAD to use it for this card!!! I also used my Copic and Prisma markers; along with a little blending to get the right shade!! I layered my DP onto SU CS,added a little various bling, and finished it off with a Gina K sentiment!!! Although I really LOVED the sentiment The Redhaired Girl used, this was the closest I could get!!! I hope you like it as much as I do!!! Just had to share it with you all!! YOU should try YOUR hand at the contest!!! It was SUPER fun!!!
Have a FANTABULOUS,rest of the weekend!!! I am off to post the NEXT challenge...over at Javablustamper & Friends!! HOpe to see you there!!! You never know what might be given away next!!!

Hey everyone!!! Happy Twinkling Tuesday!!! I don't know if you remember me mentioning a card I had to share with all of you. Do you remember me saying how excited I was to share it?? it is!!! This is MTTSC10, or rather, my version of it! Madelynn decided to give us a starting point this week and have us add to it, if we wanted to. I was SO excited with how this turned out! I just couldn't contain myself!! I don't know if you have noticed,but, I have really been experimenting with my markers. You know...the whole shading and mixing colors thing?? I have 5 Copic markers, right now, thanks to my AWESOME friend Cheri!! The other markers I have are Prisma Markers. I have been working with several different techniques and trying to mix colors to get the color I want. You can REALLY see that in this card. Well...I guess you have to know, first, that I really didn't have any markers that out and out matched the colors I was using. So..... I mixed!! I LOVE it!! I hope you do too! Although, it does help that it is Ian; I mean, come on .....he is SO cute!!! Why not be creative this week?? Why not play along??? I hope you do and I hope you'll visit the rest of the AWESOME Twinkle Team for inspiration!! They are, for sure, a talented group of ladies!!! Make sure to leave them some love while you're there!! It REALLY makes their day, I am sure!
I will be back later tonight, after work, to announce the winner of my Blog Candy!! Good luck everyone and thanks for entering!! I appreciate all of your encouraging comments! The book suggestions were GREAT!!! Now.....don't forget the DT call, going on over at The Greeting Farm & at Club Anya!! can only pick one!!! So...choose what's RIGHT for you!!!! You can find the Twinkle Team and The DT Call links on my sidebar!!! One other stop, you will HAVE to make, is to the NEW Twinkling Tuesday blog!! Our featured stamper has an AWESOME creation for your eyes!! Oh, and don't forget to label your creations with MTTSC10, when you upload them, so we can check them out!! Thanks SO much for stopping by and have a SUPER day!!! Talk to you later!!! ENJOY LIFE!!!!

**Make sure to come back tonight.....I have a SUPER cute card, that Kyah made!!! She can't wait for me to share it!!!
