Madison and Poppels

Hi everyone!!! Finally. (and I almost ruined this one too!) I am super clutzy this week or something, not sure what it is...
Anyhow, I have made a card using this very elegant looking gal who's name is Madison (her puppy is Poppels). Bet you can't guess where this image is from? Ok-you are right....SQUIGGLEFLY!! You can find this image and tons more over at squigglefly here:
I have colored them with my copics, and used SU ds papers, sentiment is from a SU stamp set called Botanical Blooms which is FREE right now with any $50. order! (You can check out the catty by clicking on the picture on the top right of my sidebar) Flowers from my stash.
****SPECIAL INVITE********
Make sure you come back on April 1rst-5th! There is going to be a special Squigglefly blog hop going on-and you won't want to miss out-lots of blog candies-and gorgeous Squigglefly cards!! Details in the next few days.....

Egghead bag topper

Hi ! I feel like I have been running round in circles lately!! I have had time on my lunch today to make a real quick Thank You.

I have used the super cute image from squigglefly- I believe he is called egghead! See, he even has a cute name!! I have used a top note folded in half-and used pop dots to make him stand out a little- I have used a tiny dot stamp also, to place a couple dots around on his shell to make it look like it was decorated before he decided to hatch! thanks fro stopping by, I hope to be back later to do a card, and post it!!!

sorry for the horrible shadow!!

Spring is on its way

Hi! I have finished an Incy Wincy card tonight...

The three little images of butterflies and a snail are images I have downloaded from this wonderful site called Incy Wincy- the site is new and is for a great cause! All the proceeds from all the items they sell go towards helping a Childrens Hospital!!! They have some really awesom images, some black and white-and some already colored like these images-and of course- one of the best thing about digital images is you can make them whatever size you need for that project!! Next project you might need a totally different size and your all set for that too!

The large butterflies are die cut from my SU bigshot! The sentiment is from my SU set called Dear Friend. The ds papers are from a Making Memories paper pad called Chloe's Closet.Thans for looking-would love to have you comment! If you have any questions about
Stampin Up products please feel free to ask me-I am in the process of getting my SU website on my blog!

The skating waitress

Hi! I've got another squigglefly card for you to check out today-this one is called "Skating Waitress" !! Doesn't she bring back memories of the olden days? (Kinda reminds me of an A&W or something, where they used to skate out and serve your food on your tray attaching it to your car window!!)

Anyways, I have used ds papers from the basic grey collection called boxer they are gorgeous papers!! I have colored her with my copics, and the flowers and rhinestone brad were from my stash. Sentiment was made on the computer.
Thanks for looking -and don't foget to check out all the other cool images at squigglefly here:

pickles and ice cream???

Hi!! Hope you all had a great day! I have a new card with an image from squigglefly-it is called pickles and ice cream! If you know anyone who is excpecting-this is the cutest image!!! I have used my embossing folder (textile) to emboss the background piece. ds papers from basic grey-two scoops--beautiful papers and they are fat free! The sentiment is from a new clear stamp set I picked up the other day from Fiskars called Cameo ovations. I used the neato machine I picked up the other day too-(treated myself)!!-it is called a Pixie, a crafty mini sewing machine..I think I am really gonna like it!! Flowers and brads are from my stash. Squigglefly has lots of great new images, and you can check them out here:

Emily and I have made some cards...

Hello!! Emily has made this card for the crafty monkey challenge. This card was to be made 'touchy-feely'-hopefully this counts. She has used a stamped image from SU set- a good egg.

another incy wincy image-iris

Hi! WOW three posts in one day-well, if I hurry-it's almost midnight! I would like to share a card from another image I purchased through **incy wincy** you can find it here: go check out this new site founded by Heather and Greg and some family and friends who have put it together to help out a childrens hospital! All proceeds of the images they sell will go to the childrens hopital fund!! They have some pretty cool images-some already colored like this one, and others that are black and white - and you color them yourself. (See previous post here: - this one I colored from a black and white image) the images are found on the site under the icon -charity shop-! I know my card is quit simple, but I really am happy with how it turned out, sometimes you just need a 'no frills' kinda card. I think this image is absolutely gorgeous!!! And LOOK what I got!! I am very proud to say I was their first customer!!! And I will definately be back-thank you guys!!

Don't pounce!

Hi! I have another card to show you of the images I got for dt was this cute little image called "the pounce'!! I have paired my image with another squigglefly image called "butterfly cat". That is the beauty of digital images, you can resize them before you print them! And then when you have another creation in mind, you can resize it again! Whoohoo!! I love squigglefly! Thank you for looking, as always I love to hear your comments-Thank you !
oh, almost forgot-Holly has many amazing cards that I think are gorgeous, and she uses chalk for her backgrounds sometimes-so I decided to give it a try-not as perfect as Holly's, but I am pleased for my first try! I actually used my su stampin pastels.

new images on squigglefly!! (Emily and her Daddy!!)

Hi! I apologize for it taking me SO LONG to make another post-but I have had a nightmare with my computer lately!! I thought it was the new securtiy system I had installed the other night, so after many -many hours-I deleted it and went back to a previous time -then all was ok, so I thought "Yeah, I fixed it" But NOOOOO-when I reinstalled the new printer it started happening all over again-cutting me off the internet every time I tried to go to something new!!! Well, I have now deleted the new printer again-and all is fine once more!! Of course though, we already threw the box out-so probably tough luck to me on taking it back-huh?!!!

Well, on to my post for today-this is one of the new images over on squigglefly!! I have fallen in love with this image, as it could SO be my daughter giving her Daddy a night -night kiss!! It looks SO MUCH like it could be my daughter, that it is amaZing, and i have named this card Emily and her daddy!! (So, I have tried to make the Daddy's hair kind of gray looking-heehee!!)

Know someone who is expecting? They also have the cutest image for you to check out as well, then!!! Go on over there now- to check 'em out for yourself!! You will be amazed too!

I made the SQUIGGLEFLY dt!!!! Come meet Charlie!

Hi Ya'll! I made the dt for SQUIGGLEFLY!!! I can't even express enough gratitude to the SQUIGGLEFLY team for giving me this awesome opportunity!!!! I am soooo geeked about it! WHooooHoo!!!

Well, here is my first DT card!!

This is Charlie-isn't he adorable?!!!!

I have made my card using a combination of SU cardstock and Making Memories ds papers. I used bashful blue and pumpkin pie inks from SU. The ribbon and flower are both from the same collection as the ds papers. (Chloe's closet)

The sentiment I used here is from SUs goody goody gumdrop stamp set.

Well, can't wait to meet up with other gals that made the dt as well, and make sure to go check squigglefly out!!! While you are there make sure to vote for the Divine Bovine contest, and sign up for the newsletter!! You won't be able to wait to make your first download!! (It is so super fast and easy!!!)

incy wincy card

Hi everyone I just wanted to show you a card I made with an image I downloaded off of incy wincy-a new website devoted to helping out a childrens hospital!! (proceeds from download sales will help out with this project-so head on over there!!) How great is that!! You can check it out here;

I really admire their devotion and willingness to give their time to such a great cause!

I have made this card with several different colors of SU paper and added a simple sentiment and some su ribbon. I have recently purchased a few copics-so really enjoyed using those in the coloring of this beautiful image! I tried to photo the colors to show you which ones I used, as I have seen some do-but it turned out too blurry to show.

Tomorrow I may have some EXTREMELY EXCITING news to tell you, but I have to wait for the go ahead first!
Thanks for stopping by-please leave me a comment as I love to read what you think!!

I've had time to make a card!

I've made this card for my brother. The stamp I got second hand, so not sure of the maker. (possibly good stamps? it does have a symbol on the side that says that?)

I have used the torn looking that I have been seeing lately, and kind of like it-what do you think? I have also used several brads-instead of using flowers-trying to go for a more masculine look.
As always, comments are welcome-whether good or bad, as that is the only way I am going to learn what I may be doing right or wrong! Thanks for looking!
