You should have arrived here from Angela .

Here is my project for today's hop:

 I decided to create this lovely wind chime. I love it because it has a cute dog and also my favorite, BUTTERFLY. I then decided to also finish the 2nd wind chime, although it has no bugs.

 I love them. MY mom collects wind chimes so these are now her's. 

I also pulled a pack of shrink a doodles out. They was flowers, butterflies and dragonflies. I colored them in with the pink, purple, green colored pencil that came with them. I DISLIKE I can't really see the color in them. They was necklaces but I just used the same twine I used for the wind chimes and made them as hang ups.

I then wanted to see what it would be like if I used sharpies. I actually love them better.

I also took a short video of  the process. I love watching them shrink.

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog today.

Forget Your Birthday?

Hello, it is Wednesday and that means I am here to share with you a creation using Sunsational Stamps. I love these fun stamps.

I chose a birthday one. My aunt loves elephants and I forgot her birthday, with all that had been going on, so I made it for her.

I actually made 4 almost identical but not really. I printed the digi and cut them out. I found purple paper and made me 4 card bases. I edged them all with Tim Holtz Picked Raspberry distress ink. I found 2 bows and I glued them on the balloon. I then needed 2 more so I cut a piece of ribbon in half and made the remaining bows. Using little gems I glued them on the hats.

Took me roughly 10 minutes to fully complete all 4 cards. Now I am ready for when I forget.

Here are my simple but fun cards.

I hope you enjoy my cards and will head over to Sunsational Stamps to pick you up some fun stamps to play with.

Swinging by to say HI

 Good morning. How are you doing? I am ok. Just trying to heal from a surgery I just had.

It's Wednesday and that means it is my day to share with you a creation using Sunsational Stamps. I chose the oh so adorable Swinging by to say hi stamp.

I haven't been able to clear my table in a month so I used all scraps off my table for this card. The background is the  remainder of a file folder. I love it. The 6 flowers are just randoms and I put a bling in the middle . The butterfly was one I just received in the mail.

I am very happy with my creation and it is still flat enough to mail with a stamp.

Here is my creation. Enjoy

So, How did you like my creation? Please feel free to comment and let me know. If you would like this little cute stamp you can get it here.

I currently have tons of Jamberry samples sitting here waiting to be used. If you would like one just message me your address and number of sample. I'll get it right out to you.

I made this with a stamp from Sunsational Stamps . I colored it in with water color markers. Title was done with a bright pink ink pen. I made this card using a hospital chair as a table. Sorry if it looks bad. My mom loved it so I left it with her. I used white card stock as a base and a piece of green scrap paper. Took a purple ink pen and went around the edges of the white .

Sunflower- Sunsational Stamps

Good morning, Welcome to my Friday post for Sunsational Stamps .

Today I chose the ever so cute Sunflower stamp. She was so fun to work with. My favorite flower is the Sunflower.

I used  a card from the dollar store as my base. Covered it over with sticker paper from the dollar tree. I love that paper. I then used some pink ribbon from the handles of a Victoria's Secret bag. Worked perfect. I then took some Tape Trendz, I also got from dollar tree, and cut a strip to go down the center of my ribbon. I love how it looks. I then took a circle saying out of my stash and pop dotted it up on the bottom right corner. I went over the lines with a purple glitter pen.

Such a sweet and simple card.

Here is the card.

I hope you enjoyed this as much as I do.

Until next time..

Also known as National Scrapbooking Day, on this day thousands of people get together all over the country to celebrate with scrapbooking parties and share their talents with others. 

Scrapbooking dates back to the 15th century.

As per Wikipedia: “Scrapbooking is a method for preserving personal and family history in the form of a scrapbook. Typical memorabilia include photographs, printed media, and artwork. Scrapbook albums are often decorated and frequently contain extensive journaling. Scrapbooking is a widely practiced pastime in the United States.”

Scrapbooking is a hobby of preserving memories and at the same time it provides a strong social network.

  ”Scrappers”, as they are called, get together and scrapbook at each others homes, local scrapbook stores, scrapbooking conventions, retreat centers and have even gone on cruises.  Together they share tips and ideas and enjoy the social outlet.

Scrapbookers are often referred to as "Paper Hoarders".
