Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow

But not too much more please!! This is enough...really! The first pix was around 3 pm earlier today, the 2nd two were from about 9 pm. We supposidly still have 12 hours left in the "blizzard"! See the fence in pix one & how much of it you really see...not too much in the 2nd pic! And see the window...those are in the basement....ooooh!

Snowed In & making Cards!!!

Thank goodness UPS guy delivered my new stamps yesterday before the snow hit! Now I have something to do late into the night. Kids have NO SCHOOL tomorrow so we can all stay up late!! I Love this stamp set...Floral Elements...has squares with texture (small & large) plus little petals to make flowers with!

Week Color challenge!!!

3 Colors this week are Dutch Blue, Garden Green & Bamboo....I used embossing powder, paint, hemp, lots of fun stuff on this one. It may be hard to tell but the bug on bottom is a thick layer of embossing powder stamped when hot, then painted. The right panel of the layout is several layers of embossing powder cracked & then painted too!

These are OLD photos I keep meaning to add to the albums...but may just start a fun layout, random pix album for them instead!

Silly Boy & New Card

He is always doing the strangest things. This day he said he was going to wear his underwear on his head all day. Thank goodness he didn't! Then I made a digital card...I will print it later to see what it really looks like. I have yet to print any layouts!

3 colors

Twilight, Hollyhock & buttercup are my "colors" for the week. I LOVE's the perfect shade of teal, a deep, true color. I used Floral Charms & Simple Stitches for this one. Simple stamping, a few eyelets & hollyhock ribbon!

New header & a digi layout

I just wanted to make sure to post I did not make the digital elements, but I did layer them & mix them to make my header. Credit for the brush, papers, etc is not due to me!

Ok, now that i have that covered....when I post digi layouts btw...most of that is freebie kits from 2 peas, etc. On rare occassion I may add in an element of my own. is a SUPER easy layout...from Erica H. on 2peas freebie just add your photo...and it matched this photo SO well I had to do it.

I think there is a place here in town where I can print out these layouts too...easy way to make an album for the folks.

Chalked background

I used a 12x12 sheet of white daisy cardstock for my background. I used versamark to stamp the image from "alfresco" and chalked pink, green & brown to look soft. When the chalk hits the versamark it sticks...becomes darker shade, very cool! I also did the same technique with the 3 hanging images on bottom.

Look how nice the kids were being for my at dinner! I had to take a pix to try & remember that!

Giant Birthday card

This is for the teacher tomorrow...and it's large enough for all the kids to sign it. I used a 12x12 folio from CTMH to make a card. With the new stamp set...and fun, bright colors.


From the Spring Idea book...this is a stamp of the month in the future...and I LOVE IT!

I used these funky, bright colors for thanksgiving layouts that really didn't have any fall colors, activities in them.

Lilac Mist, Bubblegum & Crystal Blue has snowed here today but I still managed to make an easter card last night. CRAZY!

See how EASTER is in different colors? I cut my stamp! EASTER was one image & I used some pointy scissors to cut each letter apart. I can stamp each letter in a different color! EASY!

Crystal Blue, Chocolate, Cranberry & New England Ivy

Four more unusual colors that I just really like! And I really LOVE how this card turned out tonight. The cover is cut on the edge to reveal the chocolate/cranberry circles that are actually on the INSIDE of the card. Fun! I used the magic foam stamps from last week to stamp the cranberry strip & the background of card. Hope you like it as much as I do! Now I just need someone to do something special so I can send them this congrats card!

Hollyhock, Cranberry, Barn Red & Garnet

These are FOUR colors for the weekend. They are not colors one thinks to use in cardmaking really. BUT...I think they look sorta cool together.

I used woodland sentiments for the little greetings. They are SO tiny...but I like what they say. Wish they were just a tad bigger & wish we had more like these sentiments for cardmaking, maybe in the new book which debuts 1/1/07!!!!!!!!!!!! Cannot wait to get that book in my hands!

One is for my sister's bday card...the others just use up scraps. I attempted to color my photo hanger by heat embossing it. Oops! Next time I will use a silver one that has no color over it already(the white started to melt into my embossing powder). I think it looks good enough to pass!

Magic Foam

I LOVE This can do a goggle search for magic foam stamping. And you'll find them...but try to buy them locally...I found some for $.75 a block at a local art shop. Online they were more $$. It's like a foamy block you heat with your heat gun, then press into 3D shapes to make your own stamp out of. I used ribbons, Just Blooms, Dimensional alphabets, buttons, electrical supply stuff, FUN! You have to try it!
