Hello all! Happy Sunday to you! I feel like a ......DORK! I know I saw somewhere that there was a MFT (My Favorite Things) challenge to use pink and black and I swear I can't find it now, so I guess I will just post it here! Where no one is really looking cuz' I don't think anyone knows my blog is here! Out here in cyber right field, where nobody....NOBODY....ever hits the ball! Anyway, I used the new Maid for You set and colored it with Koh-I-Noors, added a little free handed embellishing and some bling! The mirror on the wall was drawn as well and the "mirror" portion was embossed three times to give it a little shine, though it is difficult to see in the picture. I had alot of trouble with the layout for some reason and wanted to add a little something different aside from buttons and ribbon, so I used some scraps and made a little paper duster to embellish the side. Let me know what you think! (Puh-leeze!) Somebody leave me a comment so that I will know that at least one person bounced across this blog! Thanks!

Hello all! It is Friday night, woooohoooo! I love Friday nights. The kick off to the weekend, pizza for supper, no cooking, sitting around with the family playin' games and relaxin'. Ahhhh, I love it. Oh, and did I mention NO HOMEWORK! Nooo, not for me, for the kidlets, and yes, I do have to still help them with it. I swear its like I am doing far more homework now than I ever did in school. (Just ignore that sentence, mom.)
So I have some Cats Pajamas goodness to show you. I bought the Puppy Love clear set and just started coloring them up with some Koh-I-Noor pencils, thinking that the Rocket was going to be my p'iece de resistance' (I know I didn't spell that right, but it was fun trying!) but I think the lovebirds are my favorite of this little batch. I have some work to do on the Rocket card, I will post it later...um...maybeeee.....Anyway, I hope you like them and come back for more soon! By the way, you might want to jet over to The Cats Pajamas and pick up their Kitty Cat Pack. Its a whole lotta clear stampin goodness for less than Cat Kibble!
The card with the sweet little fish on the front was stamped for me by my very loving , very tender hearted seven year old, Scout. He loves to create and color too, just like his mom. Recently my wonderful husband helped me to create a new stamping area in our room so Scout took the opportunity to break it in and make me this very sweet little card. So if you check it out and you think it is as precious as I do, please leave him a comment or two, he will be soooo proud!

Ok, here I am, in blogland....what a nice place to be. I am so addicted to reading everyone else's blog, so I decided that maybe I should share too. ALSO...it causes me to get off my...tail...and use the products that I am so awesome at collecting...right? The goal is to use more so I can buy more...that is the way it should be...right? My goal is to post at least every other day, and maybe...just maybe....I will have some blog traffic, and get connected to other crafters from all over the place. The key here is to get busy....and create. So here is a card that I created for my sweet cousin, Sharon, who is like a sister to me, honestly. And when we get together, it doesn't matter what the situation is, even if it is the gravest of situations, we will find a way to laugh at each other, because that is just the way we are, and I love her so much. I thought that Cosmobella from Stamping Bella was just perfect for her birthday card. The thing is, the more I stamped and looked at all the white space, the more of these things called "Copics" I used. Oh...so you have heard of them? I love them, but am NOT that great at using them...yet... but I am working on it. I freehanded the grass and stepping stones, and the topiary stamp is from a retired SU set called Sweet of You. I got carried away on the coloring and keep in mind that I have not had these Copics long. Tell me what you think, and if you have any constructive criticism, let me know, I can take it. Lol!
