Enjoy your Day

Good morning! Just a quick, simple card for today. I just had to have this double sided paper when I saw it! Love the colours and the design. I didn't want to cover it up, so I chose a simple layout, used both sides of the paper, folded the ribbon so it wouldn't look too plain, and stamped a sentiment in a scalloped circle. It works for me. I should be working on Christmas cards, but the past couple of evenings I have been watching the first season of Lost with Kristen. We have been following the show since it started and are anxiously waiting for the final season to start. I don't remember much of the first season, so it's interesting. Anyway, enjoy your day...I plan to enjoy mine.

Cute little Pixie

This cute little pixie is another stamp from CC Designs. 'Apple Emma' from my blog post yesterday is also a stamp from this company (at least this pic turned out clearer). I also coloured her with the prismacolour pencils and blended with gamsol. It was so fun to stamp and colour these images with the prismas, since I usually use my watercolour pencils or markers. This is one of those cards that I just want to keep! Thanks for looking. Have a great day!

Say 'Appo'!

First of all I apologize for the blurry picture. This card is for my daughter Brittany, who I spent a lovely morning with yesterday. "Apple Emma" is so cute and I just had to send it to her as we have a family joke about apples from since Brittany was very little and just learning to talk. Apple was pronounced 'appo' and we would encourage her to say it over and over, louder each time, just because it was so cute to hear her say it. So this card included all the 'apple' cliches I could think of....the most important being "you are the apple of my eye!", and my other favorite, "the apple doesn't fall far from the tree!" I made this card during my 'stamping therapy' time last week at a friend's house, since she has the stamp and the wonderful prisma pencils to colour it with. Thanks for stopping by. Oh, and have an apple today, I hear it keeps the doctor away!

Botanical Blooms

A couple of cards to share from my lovely afternoon of stamping yesterday. Just me and some great Christmas music, with some Michael Buble thrown in for fun. I suppose I should be making Christmas cards, but I saw this layout on splitcoast and just had to case it. Tried a couple of different colours....I like the ruby red and olive, Kristen likes the teal and apricot.
But since they are going in the mailbox shortly, I will have to case myself and make a couple more.
Thanks for stopping by. Make it a great day!

a "Dad" card

Last week I finally had some serious 'stamping therapy' with a friend. My mojo really needed a boost to get going again. This birthday card is for my Dad. It looks like the kind of card he would buy, the whole country church scene. I think he actually sent Christmas cards like this one year, but with a more wintery look. Maybe I should add some snow, since his birthday is in December.
Thanks for stopping by, and not completely giving up on me....it has been so long since I have posted. See ya again soon.

You know you're sick when....

We've been dealing with this miserable flu at our house for almost 2 weeks now. First my daughter, then my hubby, and now me. Not fun. All this free time, and no energy to stamp. Bummer!
