For this card i used another Krista Smith image and coloured her with promarkers. I embossed my coffee tin lid with a Christmas candy folder and cut in half. I also used a die for the number, as well as the stamp in the corner and punched out some stars as well. Used my crop-a dile to attach some eyelets and used JUSTWORDZ Party Time stamp set for the sentiment. Added a little ribbon and voila, this one is done...

Craft Sale items...

Hey gang, thanks for dropping by. I thought i would share with you all what i made for my craft sales this year. These are candles and aroma beads in the same scent. I also make car air fresheners as well that match but i didn't have any left for picture taking. I made about 20 or so different fragrances but my top sellers were cream brule, cranberry spice, vanilla, ocean, and margarita. There were many others that did well too but these were the fastest selling. Thanks for dropping by and hope to see ya soon...

Oh my, the days are just flying by. I didn't get my card done until the last minute. WHEW, it's hard getting back to the swing of things. The holidays wiped me out. Any hoo, we are here today to showcase two sets of JUSTWORDZ stamps...Party Time and Christmas Season. Let's have a look and see what everyone's been up to...Me first


Oops, i used the wrong your....that's what i get when i'm creating at 11pm. Why is there no spell check when crafting anyway? I'll fix it up tomorrow. This is a stamp that i purchased in London when i went to Kimmie Kraftin Stamps Kraft day...that's a mouth full eh??? I have colored her with promarkers, used a couple die cuts and the digital paper is from RODONKULOUS designs. I just love the shade of pink she used in this kit...Speaking of Redonkulous, my niece Sheryl is expecting her second baby and is having a rough start...why is it doctors can't find the cure for the sickies in early pregnancy...It's all worth it at the end though. Wishing you the best Sheryl...Added a little twine, button and used JUSTWORDZ Party Time for the sentiment. A simple card but I'm happy with the way it turned out.

Thanks so much for stopping by and leaving the most fabulous comments... You all are amazing blogging friends...many thanks.

Please visit my Design Team to see their fabulous creations....Next up is....

Saturated Canary DT call!!!

Hey all, i just had to apply for this DT position. As you have seen over the past few months my cards all have a theme...Krista Smiths beautiful images. You can check out her images HERE. They have become an addiction and I just love her style and can't stop coloring them up. I'm just so proud how this one turned out. It's the first time I've done colored hair. I've been so scared of trying it. I love this combo that created a super cool purple. My niece suggested i colour her cloths goth like...What do i know about goth anyway I'm 46 for heavens sake....So i tried my best and black and browns made it on the paper. I embossed the paper, added some chain which i found out is the most difficult to glue down...if i only knew.. Used my new die sets from die-namics for the stars and scallop. Added a charm, a little glitter on her earrings and used JUSTWORDZ Party Time stamp set to finish it off. I have a whole new set of her images that you will be seeing soon. And to top it off she is having a new release very soon....YEAH!!! i can't wait..

Challenges i'm entering are:

Wish me the best of luck as this would be amazing if i made it on her team...Thanks for dropping by, hope to see you again soon.

PASSION for PROMARKERS...ring around the rosie

Hey all this weeks theme is to be inspired by a song...and i have to say when i saw this image from Krista Smith it just reminded me of watching my girl play ring around the rosie..holding her dress out and skipping around the circle. Do you all agree??

What are you waiting for join in on the fun and get creating...enter your project HERE

Like i said a Krista Smith image that i purchased with a gift card my daughter got me for Christmas. So this one is NEW to me...isn't she darling??? Colored with promarkers. I finally had the nerve to add some dots around her in the same colors i used to color..I like how it turned out. I've seen other bloggers do this and have admired the look. Embossed my background paper and inked it up some. Ribbon and some flowers i happened to have that matched, finished this one off...I didn't use a sentiment as i can use this one for a variety of things...

Challenges i would like to enter are:

Thanks so much for dropping by and have fun creating...

First try at some decorated COOKIES!!!

Well everyone what do you think of my first try at decorating cookies...I had fun but realized i have a lot of learning to do...A little sloppy yes, but this is a dry run. I will be making some onesies for my daughter who is hosting a baby shower...Of course i volunteered to make them. I don't know what i was thinking when i did that but i just can't help myself...I found this site http://sweetopia.net/ that has the most amazing cookies...i just had to try. I used both her cookie recipe and her royal icing recipe... Sweetopia has the most informative videos on how to .....THANK GOODNESS...very very helpful.
Now on to the issues i faced this time around. When making the cookies the instructions say to roll out between two pieces of parchment paper...which i did but the parchment was sliding all over on me...then on to the icing..i tried to get the right consistency but it dries fast and it still was a little thick..I'll have to fix that next time..I do need some practice on piping but other than all that i still managed to get them done...and what's even better is everyone liked them.

Thanks for dropping by and i'll see ya next time...
