Morning all!! Or evening, as the case may be!! So, how was your weekend?? Remember my card that HAD to be JUST right?? it is!! I am thrilled with how it all came together!! What do you think?? I got the crocheted ribbon at Walmart!!! the time I got to get out, all the other stores were closed! And.....if you know me.....once I get something in my head????? That's it!! Haha!! The other part I am proud of, sort of speak, is the sentiment!! Isn't it PERFECT?? It is part of a Studio G set and I thought of this image right away, when I saw it!! My friend, Cheri, sent it to me!! It is, without a doubt, one of my FAVS!! Next to the Charlotte and kitty one, of course!! Hehe! I LOVE IT!!! You know? When it all comes together?? JUST RIGHT?? YAY!! Ok, enough of the giddiness!! Hehe!! The next card I have to share is a TY card for my mom! She LOVES coffee and stuff, so this is VERY appropriate!! In fact, I had her in mind, when I ordered this set from MFT! I hope she likes it!! I was an embossing fool with this one. I used my Ranger clear embossing powder. I had read, on someones blog and I am not sure who, that they emboss before they color in. They indicated that it made it look nicer and made it easier. So, of course, I had to try it. Thank you to whomever shared that tip, I like it!! Ok, I am getting lengthy again!! Sorry! The other part of this card, that I LOVE, is the BG!! Look at how COOL it turned out! Again I used my clear emboss powder, along with my Versamark pad and Baroque Motifs. I will definitely be doing this again!! I hope you all have an AWESOME day! I truly appreciate you visiting my corner of the world! I think I will stop saying I will be back tomorrow!! You know how things always happen! So, I will just keep saying.....Until next time......ENOY LIFE!!!!!

Hey there!!! How are you??? I know I said I would be back with a card...............BUT............that will have to wait just a little bit longer!! Hehe!! Wait until you SEE this!!!!
Ok, a little background first. I was over on SCS, when I saw a post on the Unity Forum. The post was asking how everyone stored their Unity stamps. Of course I had to check it out!!! After reading all the different posts and ideas, I was ready to go to my local Target and purchase these COOL and INEXPENSIVE plastic scrabook case things. They are ONLY a $1.99!!! Which is still a GREAT option!! However, that is when the lightbulb went on! And I mean it was BRIGHT!!! Hehe!!
Ok, bear with me! I will SHOW you my thought process. See, I was putting away the twins baby food (which is on it's way out anyway), when I noticed the insert. I noticed the insert and the size of the box, all at the same time. I was seeing it in a new LIGHT, sort of speak! Haha!

Now follow along with me here! Check out the insert if you take it out and turn it!! Check out the surface texture!! Smooth and shiny,glossy like!!! Hehe!!

Has it hit you yet??? Did YOUR lightbulb come on?? So.................
I HAD to try it!!! LOOK!!! LOOK!! IT WORKS!!!!! HOW COOL!!!!??? RIGHT??
One thing led to another and I was soooo excited to share it with you!!!!

Well???????????????? What do you think??
I still have to finish the sides, but, I was just SO psyched!!! I wanted to SHARE it with you first!! The finishing can wait until later!! You know...................You could probably use it for all kinds of unmounted stamps!! YAY!!!
Hope you like it!! I'll be back to share a card with you, but, first I must go out and get matching ribbon for it!! I HAVE to match you know!! The creation needs something and, well, I don't have it!! So, off I will go!! After I put the kids to bed of course!! That way Eric can relax; I mean it's not like it's his evening off or anything!!!! Haha!!
See you all later!!! ENJOY LIFE!!!!!

Hey all!! Quick post, for I am off to work for a few hours today! Sorry about the crooked pic! However, it is too late to correct that! It was put in the mail yesterday, to my friend!!! I hope she likes it!! I am pleased with how it turned out! What do you think?? I colored the Skiing Riley with my Prismacolor markers and highlighted around it with my NEW Copic marker!! I added some Stardust Stickles to the snow and Baby Blue Stickles to the ball on his hat. I am so glad I got that snowflake CB die! It has come in handy, so far. I needed the snowflakes to POP. so I added the silver MM brads. Well, I need to go and get ready! I stayed up too late on SCS, with the whole HIP HOP thing you know!! Those UNITY stamps are WAY cool!!! HOpe you all have a FANTASTIC day and I will be back with another tomorrow!!! Remember.....................ENJOY LIFE!!!!!

Hello all, thanks for bearing with me and thanks for all the get well wishes!! Now, let's hope that that is IT for awhile! Huh?! I know we can't go ALL winter, but, come on!! A little while would be nice! Haha! Ok, I got my first Verve set and I love it!! I just think it is so simple and elegant!! I know it's just a Cross, but, the Cross is the meaning, right? And the Cross is AWESOME!!! Unfortunately, I had the chance to use it today. My dear friend lost her Nan, over the weekend. I had grown up with her and her Nan, so I felt really sad! We all understand that she is in a better place, no doubt!! However, it is still tough! So, I made these cards for her and her family. The grey one with the ribbon is for her Mother, the plain one is for her brother, and the butterfly one is for her. I embossed the Cross with Ranger, clear embossing powder, over Versafine Onyx. Then I sponged around the paper with Basic Grey and for the butterfly one I added Pumpkin Pie. Oh, and on the butterfly one, I also sponged the edges of the DP and on the DP. I wanted to tone it down a little, you know, to kind of go with the whole mood of the card and I like how it turned out! I also like how the square brads fit right in the center of the Crosses! Of course, gotta LOVE that Basic Grey Ambrosia paper. However, I was actually torn this time, I thought of using my swirl CB embossing folder. I thought it would match that Cross beautifully! Ahh, next time! I hope they like them! I wanted them to know that my family was thinking of them. I know they will get thru it and be a stronger family because of it. Ok, enough sad stuff; I hope you like my cards. Just wanted to share!
Now that I am feeling somewhat human, I want to know what all of you have been up to! I really need to get around and check on all of you!! Anything exciting going on? Come on, someone has to have something!! Tonight is WUW for MFT and tomorrow night is Unity's Hip Hop Thursday, what about you?? Let's see, SNSS is having their 1 yr anniversary and so is someone else; I can't think who! Darn it! Still have medicine head, I guess!!! If anyone can think of it, leave a comment!! I know there are a ton of new releases, all over the place!! You have to go visiting, for sure!! Well, I think I hear some little people jumping up and down, in their cribs! Best go check it out!! Hehe! Hopefully by tomorrow, I will be back into the swing of things!!! Hope you and your families are well!! Until next time......................ENJOY LIFE!!!

I was hit by a MACK truck!!!

Hi everyone! How are you?? I certainly hope you are better than me!! As luck would have it, I got the same thing my kids had! Imagine that! So, I know I said I would be back yesterday with something for you, but, I am afraid it may not be until tomorrow! With all those talented ladies out there, I am sure you will make it until my return!! haha!! I apologize, I just have lost all energy and am stuffed up everywhere!!! I swear!! I hate the whole COLD thing!! We came home from Kyah's Brownie's last night and it hit me like a ton of bricks!! I mean I litteraly felt like I had been run over by a Mack truck and drug thru a keyhole!!! So....................I wish all of you GOOD health and I hope to visit with you tomorrow!! Thanks for stopping in and sorry I have nothing to share with you this evening!! You know how I like the sharing thing!! I have been laying here on the couch, as much as possible, with 3 kids and visiting all your sites to see your creations!! They all are SOOO AWESOME!!! I am sorry I have not been good with the comment thing; I promise I will do better, once I AM better!!! BE WELL everyone and....................ENJOY LIFE!!!!!

Hey there everyone! How are you?? So......what do you think?? You know me, always trying to change it up a bit! Hehehe! So, I saw this Tim Holtz tutorial, about Adirondack Alcohol inks and here we are!! I love that part of it. However, I am not completely sold on the embossing. I am not sure if the base was an issue or the user! Haha! Well, I'd like to think it was the paper, but, I am thinking it WAS me! Although, I do believe the sentiment WAS the base paper. I had applied some of the Adirondack Gold metal ink; I think it kept the Versafine Onyx from being blacker, if that's a word! Haha! I tried to emboss that part too, but, it didn't look very nice! So, we did it again and left it, as is! Haha! Overall, I THINK I like it; just wish the embossing would have been a little better. To be honest, it looks way better in person! Oh well! I do LOVE these Unity stamps though, don't you?? I think I am getting back into the swing of things now. I think my family is getting well, for the most part, I think School issues are at a stand still, and hopefully we won't have any funerals for A LONG WHILE! All there is to do then is...........move forward!! Hope you all are having a FANTASTIC weekend!!Tha nk you so much for all your kind word and for stopping by! I'll be back tomorrow to visit!! Until then.....................ENJOY LIFE!!!!
