This hop runs all weekend, so you will have plenty of time to make it all the way through the hop.  So let's party and give a big welcome to Spring

 Here is my Project for the hop I was given the lucky Get Well Soon stamp to play with.

Let me just say I had fun with this stamp set. I had so many ideas racing thru my head, just couldn't get them all done at once.

I used some water color markers to color in the few pieces I thought needed it. It may be hard to tell but my card is a file folder card, in case someone wants to add tea or something inside. I used the "get well soon" stamp and put it on the top tab. Thought it went well there. I traced over the letters with blue. I used a piece of scratch paper on the side. I wanted a way to use all of the sad eyes. I colored around the yellow with a orange marker. To kinda make it not look blah and also stand out. On the inside I used the "sorry you caught a bug" sentiment.Which i traced in the same orange I used on the front.

Let's get on to my card, shall we?







Hope you enjoyed my card as much as I did making it for you.

I am going to offer my card and a special little something as my own blog candy for one special lady. All you have to do is follow my blog and tell me what you think of my card. I will chose a lucky winner on Monday.

Now on with the projects!

I chose to do a card for some one whom isn't feeling there selves. I know these past few weeks I haven't been myself. Have a nasty head cold.

So with my card I used a stamp from Sunsational Stamps. It is called Get Well Soon . I just love this set. So many different things can come from it.

I used water color markers to color in a few things. I put them on some scrap  paper (i don't know the name sorry) . Used the remainder of the background paper on the side, it's double sided paper. I then tacked the top border piece (with the hole) on one side of it, covering up the hole.

My band-aid looks blah, so I gave him a face. He is all good now. Rounded corners and inked the edges of title. Simple and cute. Can't go wrong there.

Here is my card.





Hope you enjoyed my card as much as I do.

I will be giving away my card and a special gift to one lucky person. All you have to do is follow my blog and reply to this post on what you like about my card. I will chose a winner on Monday.

Happy Easter

I am here again for my Friday post for Sunsational Stamps.

I absolutely love Betty-Bunny . She can be colored and used in so many different ways.

I used her again in a different way with another Easter Card.

She is colored in with my Spectrum noir markers. The egg in the upper right  is from the end of the title ribbon. I just cut it out and glued in down. I hate wasting stuff. I used a old border piece I had in my stash for years. Also used a piece of embossed hexagon kind of paper. Using some home made mist I sprayed it with purple and gold. I wanted something behind her and didn't know what, so I made what i thought was paint dripping. Then I ended up putting it sideways. I have no idea.

On to Betty-Bunny,


It is different but I like it.

Make sure you come back on the 28th for a blog hop with Sunsational Stamps and there March Release. You won't want to miss the free cut file or the FREE stamp set you could win.

Also I am a new Jamberry Independent Consultant and I would love for you to browse my site. Maybe you will see something you like . We have a b3get1f sale going on. I also love giving extras.  Would you like a sample? please let me know. You can check it out here .

Betty bunny- sunsational stamps

I can't believe I went all day thinking today was Thursday. So I am late with my Sunsational Stamps DT post.

I used Betty-Bunny to make a Easter card for a swap . I used a light pink paper with white egg looking things on it for background. Used betty bunny for my image. I colored her in with Spectrum Noir markers. I used some Easter ribbon at bottom. Put the egg off the ribbon on her hand. Used a scrap piece of gold paper to put behind her, unsure of name for paper. I used a glittery green gel pen to trace along the gold paper. (photo belongs to my partner I sent the card too. I can't find my photo)



Thanks for checking Betty-Bunny out.

Enjoy life's moments - sunsational stamps.


Good morning America. How are you on this fine March morning? I am super tired, been extremely busy the past 3 days and today is going to be even busier. I am going to go to the Florida Strawberry Festival with my friend and his wife. Going to be full of fun,

I am here to share with you another card I made using Sunsational Stamps - Christmas Heidi . I loved her and wanted to use her for something other then Christmas. I colored her in with random markers. Used a small paper doily inked up behind her. I found the title online and printed it out and inked it up. The background paper was a scrap. It already had the flower on it so i outlined it with pen.

Was a very simple yet fun card to make. check it out below.








Want to come and check out my Jamberry store? Want a free sample to try? Want to have a FB party where I do 95% of the work. You just invite and play. Want to earn free wraps? Want to share wraps with friends? Please check here.

I am looking for 1 host and 1 recruit so I can meet my march goals. Would you like to help me and also benifit yourself?

I like giving away free prizes too.

Happy Anniversary - young love- sunsational stamps






Good morning world. How are you on this fine Friday in February? This is our last friday in February, next thing you know it will be March.

I am here to share with you a card I made my parents for there 42 anniversary. I really loved the Young-Love file so I chose to use it.



Let me explain a little about my parents. They have been together since mom was 13 and papa was 15. They got married (right before my oldest sister was born) and after a while divorced. They then
re-married each other (right before my baby brother was born) so they celebrate 2 anniversaries. The first one is February 24th (my sisters age is the years of the anniversary.). The second one is January 20th (my baby brothers age is the years of the anniversary) .

So we just celebrated there 42nd anniversary 2 days ago. Its customary papa and I take mom out for frog legs for both anniversaries and her birthday (February 9th) , we all enjoy it . I'll share a few photos of the night below.


My papa thought he was funny and told mom to pack up the frog leg bones because I can craft with them. So I guess I need to figure out what I am doing with these here bones.
 

The place we go to for frog legs is Garys Oyster Bar right here in Polk county, FL . The food is delirious. Staff is great.

Now that I bore you let's get onto my project I have for you today.

I took the forever young couple and colored them in with no specific marker and pen. I cut the hearts out separate so they could be placed where-ever. I used a blank card base I got from Michaels. The back of the card is pink. lol Front is flowery. I then took a small paper doily and inked it in Tim Holtz distress ink.





So there is my anniversary story and project.

Make sure you stop by Sunday February 28th for our February stamp release, You won't want to miss the new stamp sets.
