Sunday, Sunday, Sunday....

how good to me.... Oh wait, that was Monday, Monday. Well Mondays are never good, so there goes that theory. MORNING!!!
This week's challenge at Robin's Fetish and I did it creations, was to "Keep it simple". This week our sponsor is Trees award. I chose her cats by the door, since I have a small herd of them myself, it made sense.
I used some ribbon, a brad and some bling flourishes from Prima flowers. Don't forget to check out the other peeps on the design team for some pretty awesome ideas on keeping it simple!
Peace out, girl scout!

(the proper response here, is chicken butt) Yet I digress...
I was asked to be a guest designer not only once but TWICE for Easy Craft Projects!!!! YAY!!!!!!
I was super excited. The challenge for this week, was to create a card using the theme "home". I headed on over to Robyn's shop here and chose the image "5 Punkins. Now, those of you that know me, know I LOVE,LOVE,LOVE the fall. I was married int he fall. All my babies were born in the fall, heck even the hubbster was worn in the fall.... so to me nothing says home more than the fall, and pumpkins and fall colors.

I am on a roll

my friends!!! I have this card finished at least 2 weeks before it's due! Holy moly!!!! What gives?
Well few things. 1. Since I was going to mess up my scrap room, I thought I would make a few things at once. 2. right now, I should be sitting on a beach in Cape May. Love Cape May.
yet I digress...
this week's image from I did it creations is sponsored by "stitchy bear". It's the "dino" image. Love him, so fun. Not sure if I am going to use it as a birthday card, or a thinking of you card, so I left the sentiment off. (which you probably have already noticed that I do on most of my cards). We were also told this week to use a sketch, and this was my take on the sketch. If you decide to play along, hop on over to I did it creations and check out the challenge blog for the sketch. you have from today until next thursday to make a card. If you do play, make sure you link back!! We'd love to see your work!
Also, don't forget to check out the talent of the rest of the team!!! We ahve a bunch of uber talented women on this team!
Peace out, girl scout!

Friday, August 20, 2010

I did it.

I completed another project, ahead of time!! Wow, go me! That never happens!
Well, since school is almost here... I thought perhaps I could do a nice little something for her teacher. I chose the image "Just ted and flower" from our sponsor Crafty pad. I just love Ted. The challenge this week is to create anything BUT a card. Now, this one I normally struggle with. It is usually hard, BUT not this time! I colored Ted using Gamsol and prisma colored pencils. I covered the top of a craft note book with some DO from my stash, added a bit of ribbon and some buttons and wa-la. Perfect. I also did a pen. I got the directions here. LOVE making those. So fun!
Don't forget to check out the rest of the design team, they are just fantabulous.
Remember, should you choose to play along with this challenge, you have until next Thursday to complete your project. Make sure you link it back!!!

Peace out, girl scout!

loooooong tima a comin...

this post is....
It has been a million years since I blogged or did anything creative. There is a reason for that. We have put our home on the market, and had an offer put in on a new one. Well since ours is on the market, it means keeping the house spotless. :( And while I love having a clean house, it also means that I have not properly messed up my scrap room getting creative! UGH. Well since all the projects fro the house are completed and we've had 11 walk throughs and no bids, I decided the hell with it, I am making a mess. Boy howdy, did it feel good to make a mess. a slight mess, but a mess none the less!!
the image from I did it creations, is cat and frog. How cute is that little bugger???? Make sure u check out the rest of our design team and see what they have been up to!!

Friday, June 18, 2010


it is a bittersweet day.... Yesterday was the last day of school for the kids. While I look forward to summer vacation, I dread summer vacation. I trade in home work checking and lunch packing for being entertainer, so I don't hear "Mom, I'm bo-ooored." So I have decided that I will close myself in my dungeon, I mean scraproom.
yet I digress...
This weeks challenge, was to use an image from our one designer "treesaward" I chose the cat image, as many of you know, I have a small menagerie. I like the menagerie. (except when they use my head as a spring board) The theme was just to be creative. So, I grabbed my fave paper (doodlebug) and some dew drops and went to work. Easy-peasy. You have until next thursday to complete the challenge. Make sure you link it back here, so I can admire your wonderful creation. Don't forget to stop by the other DT member's blogs, and leave them some lovin!!
Peace out, girlscout!

Oh Friday... How I've missed

you.... This week, I am bringing another exciting challenge to you from Robyn's Fetish. This week, out task was to create a card, using an image from one our new artists, GLITTER GABE. We were to also create a card using our favorite embellishment. This task, was kind of tough for me, because I love all kinds of embellishments. The one I find myself reaching for time and time again, is my cuddle bug. I LOVE embossing. I like the look. I love that I can dress it up, or down, which ever suits my fancy. So this week, I used bazzil bling, and my martha stewart punch. A little ribbon to make it pop and of course my other right hand, my nesties.... I think if I went on survivor, I would take them as my one thing. I can't tell you how effective it would be, but I would have some damn pretty leaves on MY hut.... lol
well, if you decide to play along, then you have from Friday until NEXT Thursday. DOn't forget to link back your card, so I can share it with the rest of the group!!!!
ok, well by the time your ead this I will be on the way to the zoo with my daughters class trip.....

peace out, girl scout!

It's Friday, It's Friday!!!!!

so you all KNOW what this means!! It is challenge time at Robyn's Fetish!!!! WahooO!!!!! It has been a LOLOOOOOOOOOOOOOng week, and I will not be sad to see it go! In new news, we got two new kittens last Friday, wonder what today will bring?!?!?!?! Ok, enough about me. For the challenge at Robyn's Fetish you are to make a card, using PINK as the focal color. We have called this challenge Pretty in pink! Woot-woot~ What goes better with Pink???? LIME green!!! Of course this time i laid off the lime green which I seen to be using a LOT of lately.
The challenge will run from today, until next Thursday! If you decide to participate, please leave a link to your creation in the comment section!
For this card, I used the kitty image from Robyn's Fetish. I colored the image using prisma colored pencils and gamsol. I used core paper for the embossing and sanded it. If you have not tried this paper yet, I strongly recommend it! It is the bomb! And what's more, you can find it at Joanne's for 5/1.00 deals!! Watch for them and stock up, it is ADDICTING!!!!
I also used my Martha Stewart eyelet border punch, my heart and swiss dot embossing folder from provo craft. Uber fun to do!!the kitty part slips out to write a message on the back!
Enjoy your weekend, and get crafting!!!

Digi Shack Wednesday!!!!!

Hola!!! Good Wednesday morning to all of you! Today is another installment of The Digi Shack's Wednesday sketch challenge!! Woot-woot! I really liked this weeks sketch, there were so many possibilities!! I chose the latest cupcake digi stamp Toni came up with! I, myself have been making a ton of cupcakes, from the books "What's New Cupcake" and "Hello cupcake". Did you KNOW there is a right and a wrong way to make a cupcake?? And adding buttermilk in place of the water will give you a denser cupcake? Yet the mind reels. Anyhoo- So this weeks sketch from The Digi Shack, I had cupcakes on the brain....
that is my interpretation of the sketch. Pretty yummy if u ask me!
Don't forget to check out what the other members of the design team have come up with!

You will also be required to participate in Digi Day on SNR on the 1st Saturday of EVERY MONTH for your term.(this date is subject to change without notice) as well as our monthly Ustream live video feeds (you do not need to have a webcam but you do need to sign up for a free Ustream account so that you can participate in the live chats)

You must use Mozilla Firefox or Google Chrome as your internet browser in order to view all of our images – both safer than IE and free to download. Our images are not always visible on IE.

Once selected as part of the DT you will receive 3 images of your choice to create with to announce your position on the team. Once I see that these three images are used you may choose 3 more and so on. I’ve found that if I freely give out images then they are not being used to showcase TDS. This isn’t just about getting free images, your position on the DT is to showcase and promote The Digi Shack. As long as you are creating with our images and showcasing them, you will receive all of your requested images. Please remember that this is a serious commitment and I expect that you treat it as such if you are chosen. Please do not apply if you can not commit.

Monthly we will be releasing new images and you will automatically be sent those images before the release date so that you can sneak peek those new arrivals. Those new releases do not count towards your images of choice.

Anyhoo- This week at The digi shack there was a cool sketch to follow. I like sketches, because I don't have to think to hard about what I am going to do with the image I have colored. I chose to do something for Father's day, since it is fast approaching... I used the sketch that is posted on the site, and I flipped it a bit. I used my Martha Stewart border punch, and wa-la. Finito. AND Father's day is not for quite some time. What ever will I do with my self now???? LOL Please go check out The digi shack. She has AMAZING images, for a BUCK. Yup, I said a BUCK.

Paper piecing Saturday...

This week, at The Digi Shack, our assignment was to create a card, using the image printed on design paper. Well, I chose the fish playing the guitar...(I just LOVE this quirky little bugger) anyhoo, since I did the one lay out in green and blue and dots I cased my won design and created another one, but this time I printed my favorite lil fishie out on design paper, from basic grey. (my fave paper line)I used the lime rickey paper, which i thought was fitting, b/c it is dotty and orange!!! I colored his arms blue this time, because orange and blue are compliments and I think they look smashing together!! Make sure you head over to The Digi shack and see the other amazing images she has to offer, and make SURE you check out the rest of the design team list located to the right -------------> and see the amazing talent that resides within!!!!

Well while I am in here I might as well create SOMETHING. So I have. For your viewing pleasure are two wedding or anniversary cards. Why you ask? I have absolutely NO idea. None. Not one reason comes to mind, I don't KNOW anyone getting married any time soon. Sure there are new babies coming, but NO weddings. Oh well. They were fun and easy peasy to make regardless!

(or something to that effect)I indeed DO have water color technique... they use water color pencils!!! Surprised my self, I did!! I cut out the egg, embossed it with assorted folders for my cuttle bug, and put the adorable bunny from The Digi Shack in the center of the flower with a pop dot!! Cool,huh?? So that is card number one...

The second card is for Robyn's Fetish!

Wednesdays there are Wacky Wednesdays freebies!! Woohoo! I was given this image to play with for another challenge, and here she is again!! I just LOVE her! She is such fun to color!

it's saturday....

aside from being up with the chickens, it is not turning out to be such a bad day!!
This week has flown by. Seriously flown. It has been rather exciting for me. 1. I was accepted to another design team! Wow! Lil ol me. 2. I was hired as a sub for a rather large school district. Holy crap. I am a secondary education/English major. (although looney will argue that one tooth and nail, b/c of my **stellar** typing skills.
Yet I digress.
the moist important thing on my agenda today, is the Robyn's Fetish Challenge!!
This week your challenge (should you choose to accept it, if to create ANYTHING but a card. Yup. any ol thing you want. Myself, when I saw this, I thought...hmmmm, I can do this! I made a candle! Yup. Ok, well lemme rephrase. I ALTERED a candle, using a digi image. I BOUGHT the actual pillar its self. I know, I know technicalities, but I did not want my adoring fans thinking I was THAT craftastic! Don't let's be silly now. The thing was EASY-PEASY. First, I got the image from Robyn. (and sake's alive she has a BUNCH at the store to choose from) then, I printed the digi on tissue paper. Yup. plain ol tissue paper. (and not the tissue you use for your arse, or nose) I then colored the images with my prisma pencils and gamsol. I attacked the ribbon at top with zip dry, chiseled a hole for the brad,threw on some stickles, and wa-la. Done. Finito. PHEW!oh wait a cotton pickin minute. AFTER I colored the image, i put them on the candle, then wrapped the candle with a piece of wax paper, (to keep these beauties that I cut out ON the candle) Then I used my heat gun to heat the image onto the candle. The warm wax seeps through the tissue paper. cool huh? It is **Almost** as fun as shrinky dinks. OOOOOOOOOOOOH, what a FAB idea! Run a sheet of shrink film through your printer with your digi image, color, cut and bake! I have a daisy troop, that these would look super cute with on a bracelet or a necklace..... Ok, off to find the shrink paper...
make sure though, that you check out the rest of the design team, over on the side bar, and see what these talented ladies have created!! We just added 5 new members, so make sure you stop by and leave some bloggy love, they LOVE to get comments!!!

i used to loathe Wednesdays. I am nto sure why, but I did. Never cared much for that day, kinda like the middle finger of you week. Taunting you... weekend isn't here yet... lol. BUT, now, Wednesdays have a WHOLE new meaning. It is wacky wednesday over at RObyn's Fetish stamps!!. That means that you, my frined, get a digital image absoutely free!!!! Well now! Isn't that grand? And as if that was not enough, she has lots of other images for your perusing pleasure. So you buy a stamp. That's step one. You print it out and all, and then you think to your self, now what? I will tell you what... You make a card! Add it to a scrap book page, what ever your pea pickin little heart desires! If you get hung up on an idea for a card, just look to the right----*there is a list of her design team!! Check out the talent this lady has scored!! If you stop by their blogs, don't forget to leave bloggy love! We all like to know who's been visitin!
and, if any of you are wondering what ever happened with the camera? **blushing** Not only did I have a wrong setting on my camera, I some how (and lard have mercy, i have NO idea how) I took pics with no flash card. YUP, here I was snapping away, all the while the flash card was safely stowed in the printer... smacks forhead="" ugh. So this time it was operator error, something I never thought I would succumb to.HOWEVER- I did spill a 16 oz coke, all over my laptop.... Um yeah. That's not so great for the laptop. Bad news? lost all the files. Good news? It is covered by Dell. PHEW. Now, just the inconvience of not having it for 2 weeks. I will go through WITHDRAWL!>

it's challenge time!!

and here this week, the challenge, is to make a scrap book layout. This one, was hard for me because I have not scrapped in like i dunno a BILLION years. (Or so it would seem) Anyhoo- I did the layout but left it blank and would add my pics later... took the photo, and tired to upload it and NOTHING. Had the hubs look at both things, and he's scratching his head. We think it is something with the camera, which if it is, that is hugely disappointing, since I have had it just over a year. If it is the computer, I am going to cry. Seems like computer problems are running rampant in these parts lately! My one friend just lost her hard drive and a few months before that her other computer, the mother board went! UGH.
So in the mean time, I will let you gave at the sketch, and make your own lay out. Make sure to visit the challenge blog, and upload yours, and you can with some of Robyn's images!! woo-hoo! When I get back from the camera place, I will try and upload my creation...
Do not forget to check out the rest of RObyn's design team, they are wonderful, and I can not wait to see what they come up with!!!!!
peace out, girl scout!

Ok, so there are several things I am UBER excited about!!! 1. My dad is turning 70. Now, normally 70 would not be THAT big of a deal, but those of you in bloggy land that know me, know that he has been ill, and has almost died twice. :( BUT, he is not fit as a fiddle, and ready to rumble!!!so celebrating 70 with him is an awesome feat. Makes me so happy you have NO idea.
2. It is Saturday at Robyn's Fetish! and, with that comes a challenge. This weeks challenge is cool, I had a lot of fun playing with it.The challenge will run from today until next Friday. One lucky winner will be able to choose a few images from Robyn's fetish!! (And I tell ya what, I am so glad it is not me that had to make that decision, because they are sooooo cute you will want them all!!)
Ok, this weeks challenge... Your card MUST have the following on it...
*Dimension. Pop dots.. give it a "boost"
*Pleated ribbon or paper. (this one I struggles with, but finally figgered it out)
*fibers... -you know, the stuff that we had to have 10 years ago b/c it was cool, and we have put it up in a box some where?? Yeah., that's the stuff... Twine, fibers, yarn...)
*more dimension: Diamond glass, Souffle pens, stickles...

On my card, I pop dotted both layers of nestibilities
I added dimension to the sprinkles and candle using diamond glass
my fiber was the flame
my pleated ribbon is under the image
