John Wayne Card

This was the final challenge on one of the boards I am on. We had to find out where our partner was from, and my partner was in Iowa. Then we had to do some research and make a card pertaining to their state. Well, as I was surfing I found out that John Wayne (The Duke) was born in Iowa, so I decided to make a card using a pic of him! Not much stamping, just the cowboy boots in the background, but it was fun to make!

Winners of the stamp and prima giveaway!!

Morning Ladies,

I just drew 11 names out of a bowl for the stamps and primas I have here to send out! If your name is below, please email me with your snail mail address and I will get either a stamp or some prima's in the mail to you! There is an email me button on the right hand side of my blog.

I must say, it was interesting reading everyones answer for this question. It seems like the majority of us wished for better health. I kind of have 2 things I would like to change! I know that is cheating but....what can ya do! lol I would change the fact that I am diabetic! The second, I would change how insecure I am about myself, I wish I had more self-confidence. The insecurity thing can really eat a person it does at times!

Ok...sorry about my wordy post here! LOL....The winners are.......

1. Erica T.
2. Sheila - Manicstamper

4. Lisa - Prima Chatterinas Stampfessions

Stamping Bella Cards

Well, most of you know I don't do cutesy much, BUT, these stamps are just too cute not to use! LOL Mindy sent me some of the Bella stamps so I could do some cards for samples and clasess. I have more but they aren't quite put together yet, so will add them later! I just inked a vertical pallette stamp with the Sea Shells inks, and overstamped with the black. I did try coloring with my pencil crayons, but it just wasn't me! I will finish off one of those cards later.

Thanks for looking!!


Challenge Card

It seems the only time I am posting cards lately is when there is a challenge! I must get with it and stamp more! I do want to stamp, just somehow always end up doing something else....urgh....what can I say! lol

This weeks challenge was to stamp on patterned paper. I love doing that, so I had fun with this one! All stamps are Paperbag Studios, except the background, it's Stampin'Up!. I really wanted to do more layers, but this time I stopped myself! LOL....I just have a thing for lots of layers, my card seems bare to me without them. I don't think doing less layering will last for

Thanks Ladies!

More Stamps to give away!

Afternoon Ladies!!

When I had my blog giveaway a few weeks back, I drew 20 names, but 4 of the people never came back to give me their mailing information. So I have added those stamps plus a few others back into another giveaway! Some of the stamps are used, and some are new, but they are all unmounted to save on mailing charges! I also have some Prima flowers that I will add to the draw!

So this time I want to ask you a different question! If you could change just ONE thing about yourself, what would it be?

If you would like to take part in this draw, please leave a comment and answer the question above! lol I will draw 10 names on Wednesday Jan. 31st, and post the winners names at that time! So please remember to come back and see if you have won or not! lol

I can't wait to read everyone's answers! lol
Good Luck everyone!

Heart Challenge

Ok, this started out totally different that what I started out with! lol....The challenge was to use a heart somewhere on the card. I tried everything and finally ended up just stamping a heart instead of punches or charms! There are alot of different stamp companies used on this card. The heart is from Paper Inspirations, Lips - Judikins, words are all from PaperArtsy, scrolls are from Autumn Leaves.

Thanks for looking!


Pearlex Swap Card

This is the card I made for a Pearlex Swap I am in. Main image is Paper Inspirations, swirls are from Purple Onion, Live, Laugh, Love is from HA. To do the wings I just dipped my dove blender into the pearlex and colored. I also used my new Cuttlebug for the ribbon slide!


School Days

I am on a board that is having partner challenges, and we had to figure out a card making supply that we have in common, and the only thing we could find was a labelmaker and staples! LOL...So this is what I came up with! The stamps are all from Oxford Impressions, I just love their stamps! The background patterned paper is Cosmo Cricket...yummy...their papers are so delicious!!! lol

Thanks for dropping by!!


Bling Card

I just did this card for a Bling Challenge/Mingle on one of the boards I belong to ( We have a challenge every week, and this time we are having a mingle with it as well. The bling on this card is on the woman's dress. All the hearts have clear glitter in them, and the prima flower has a rhinestone brad.

I don't know about everyone else, but I really struggle to get back into my stamping after Christmas. I mean we create so many different cards at Christmas, and it's a certain theme, now it's time to put that all away and carry on. Why I am having such a hard time getting back to it now? lol I am trying not to do what I usually do, try something different, maybe that's why. I just see so many different styles of cards and would love to try something else as well as what I normally do! lol Urgh....I can tell I will go back to my own thing very soon! LOL

Anyway, this is my contribution for the mingle! lol

Have a great day everyone!

Making some Cowboy/Cowgirl Cards

I pulled out some stamps today and just started playing! It's so strange, but after doing all the stamping leading up to Christmas, it was like a was having a stamping block! So these are some of my favorite stamps, and I thought I should start with these! I will upload more as I finish them off! I like these, they make me laugh! This card is a repeat of one I had made already...the others are new, but probably won't be up til tomorrow, unless I can't sleep tonight! lol
Have a great evening!
I still haven't finished my cowboy/cowgirl cards yet!! I think I am so slow I am working in reverse over here!!! Gotta get these done! lol


Stamps to give away!

Well, I had a laundry basket overflowing with stamps that I don't use anymore, so I sold quite a few online in the groups that I belong to. But I still have alot left! So, I unmounted the ones that are left, and thought it would be fun to give them away! I will just send them out in a regular mail envelope. So, how about a contest?

I propose that you leave a comment, telling us ONE weird thing about yourself! I really had fun when Audrey tagged me asking me to tell 6 weird things about myself! I probably have enough to send out 20 envelopes or so, so the chances of you winning a stamp or two will be high! There is nothing wrong with the stamps, some are NEW, they are just ones that I don't use anymore or my style has changed! lol

I will put all the names into a draw on Wednesday morning, Jan. 10th, and pick out as many winners as I have stamps for! I will post the winners as soon as I draw the names!

Spread the word, and let's have some fun with this!

So come on ladies, make it really weird!!! We want to hear ALL about you! LOL

Let the fun begin!!!
Good Luck everyone!!


Yellow and Blue Challenge

On a stamping board I am on, they issued a challenge for a yellow and blue anniversary card. Those are 2 colours I don't' use really at all, especially yellow. So this is what I came up with. I don't like it, but at least I finished the challenge! LOL Another colour I don't like to work with is orange! Do you have any colours that just aren't you?? Share with us!
