For my Peeps

Well, I just sat down to type up my blog post and I really can’t come up with anything to say.  I called my daughter over for some blogging help and she told me “Just say something about peeps and chicks.”  Great.  That was really inspiring.  I guess I’m on my own.

Even though I am at a lost for words, I want to make sure I give credit to Mabelle for yet another adorable image.   Cute, cute, cute!  I just want to give him a squeeze.


2012-03-20 WSS Chick card WM

Here is a look at the complete image.  I have the entire image all colored up and ready to go.  I hope I get a chance to make a card with him sometime this week.

So, did you see Donald Driver on “Dancing with the Stars”?   Do you think he is going to have another trophy for his shelf?  I think he did pretty good for the first night.  (Now you know why I can’t think of anything to say.  It’s because I’m watching “Dancing with the Stars”.  No wonder I don’t watch much TV, I can’t multi-task so I wouldn’t be able to get any crafting or blogging done.)

LOL Cheryl - we are 2 peas! DWTS & Idol suck me in every year, & there go 4 nights out of my week! My tv is no longer functioning in my craft space so it's one or the other -- & lounging in front of the tv usually wins ESPECIALLY when Donald Driver is involved!!!! Love him, I think he did great!

Okay, Berry the Snowman doesn’t have the same ring as Frosty, but I think his cuteness totally makes up for it.  This is another one of the images that I colored during my crafting day with a friend before Thanksgiving.  I’m happy I had the chance to get him on a card.    Have a great week!  Thank you for stopping by!Supplies:Stamps:  Berry from Stacy Yacula Studio at Purple Onion DesignsInks:  Memento Tuxedo Black Papers:  Neenah Classic Craft Solar White CS, Papertrey kraft CS, Carta Bella Winter Fun paper pad 6x6 Tools:  Sewing machine, Big Shot, Papertrey Doily details die, Stampin’ Up corner punch, Copic markers Embellishments:  May Arts Burlap twine, Tattered Angels glimmer mist, button Challenges:Clear It Out 2W, 3E, Must use stash item - Challenge: Anything Goes Stash Item:Anything Goes (Twine, button, die cut – had it cut and sitting in a bin since last Xmas)Loves Rubber Stamps W - #82 Anything Goes ChristmasOldie But A Goodie Challenge 2W, must use something at least 6mts ol…

Pumpkin Spice–What Time Is It?

Hello! Today is my day to post on the Pumpkin Spice blog. My card fits our current challenge, “Time”. We would love to see your project with either a word or element that implies time. I have to admit I was a bit stumped by the challenge at first. I could only think of clocks and watches, but I didn’t have any stamps that would fit. I finally had my “Ah ha!” moment and thought about looking up a quote about time. I found this quote from John Lennon that I really liked and the idea for my card grew from there and these beautiful Pebbles Inc. papers.I love these new papers from Pebbles, Inc. The colors are so bright and cheery, I had to use them to chase away the spring gloom we have right now. I love each of the 18 patterns (2 pages of each) included in the 6x6 pad.I hope this helps to inspire you to think out of the box and create a project for our “Time” challenge. You can link up your project and find the challenge details HERE. Thank you for stopping by! I hope you have a fabulous …

Sweet 16!

Hello!  I managed to sneak into my craft room for a bit today.  My daughter is turning 16 next week. (Where does the time go?)

Since the demise of Picasa, I have not found a new program to edit my photos.  I know there are several available but I have not had time to learn a new program.  I apologize that my photos are less than optimal at the moment.

Have a great day!  Thank you for stopping by.
