A New Sheriff in Town

This is the third of my TCP cards for the month. I meant to post this days ago, but life seems to keep getting away from me these days! We're staying very busy, but most of yesterday I spent in the new craft room, trying to organize everything! That's right - I've got all of my "toys", but I can't make a thing till it's all in some sort of order...

Anywho, this card was inspired by the cutey Ronnie image, from the Havin' a Pow Wow stamp set. The image was colored with markers, and all the white edges were sponged with some Distress Ink. I'm sorry, I can't remember where the PP came from. Ribbon is SU! and the button is Moxxie.

And now I'm off! Need my coffee! Till later!

Ahoy There, Matey!

This is my card that Alma posted for my TCP Special Guest Designer gig from two weeks ago! I'm a bit behind. So sorry! Soon, I'll post the card from last week, then this Wednesday is my last swanky day. :( You can check out her posts on the Dancing in Pajamas blog HERE.

This is a card that I made with one of my fave TCP sets, Arrgh, Piratey. I also used some Basic Gray paper and a matching button. Ribbon is from PTI.

Well, we're here in Ohio, and we're having a great time! For instance, yesterday, we went to Magic Mountain, and played on the bumper boats and the putt-putt coarse, among other things with my sister and Wyatt's cousins. Then we went out to the barn after dinner and I groomed my first horse! She's so pretty! :) Today, we're going to COSI, which is an uber cool science museum for kids of all ages. I LOVED going there as a kid! Then, at some point, we'll have some sort of cook-out with some extended family.

I still don't have my stamp stuff accessible to me yet, but it will be soon. I'm ITCHING to get my fingers all inky again! Plans are in the works, though, so it won't be long.

So, that's about it! Have a great and safe weekend, and I'll be back soon!

Till later...

Celebrate Yourself

This is Girl's Day In - the new Who's That Girl (WTG) set from MFT! It's available NOW on the website!! Also available now, is the new Chocolate Kiss PP and ribbon! I've used both of those on this card.

The chair is paper pieced - my fave stamping technique, next to coloring! I added some bling to the nail polish bottle, via A Muse Twinkle Stickers. The flower is a Michael's bridal flower that I colored with a Copic and adorned with some more bling.

So, what do you think of this month's release? Which sets are your faves??? I love them all, and I'm not just saying that! LOL

Well, I'm off! Have a wonderful day, and I'll be back soon, but right now I have to think about packing!

Yippee! Guess Who's Swanky!?

Did you read THIS yet??? Alma, from uber cool The Cat's Pajamas, contacted me a couple of months ago, asking me to be her Special Guest Designer for May, and of course I said YES!! I met Alma at Summer CHA last year, and did a lot of "hanging out" with her, along with the MFT team, and we had so much fun!!! Obviously, I also love her stamps and images, as well! Those penguins had me at...well, what sound does a penguin make? I HEART them! They're so stinking cute! Okay, 'nuff about the penguins...

Anywho, I know that it's a little late (or early) for Easter cards, but I just got this set, and I had to use this image! I'm also in a major mushroom phase right now, and so I love the little "extra" elements in this to build little scenes, like the grass, tree, eggs, flowers, etc... So, with this card, I just stamped away, colored, and sponged, and I was really happy with the result. You can find this set, Spring Fling, right HERE.

She'll/I'll post another card next Wednesday, so make sure you're back there/here then! Now I'm off to find more boxes!

May Blog Hop!

Seems I just can't do a Blog HOP without a Flopsey! LOL (If you didn't catch this from the beginning, click HERE so you don't miss anyone!) This is Birthday Flopsey, and don't you think he's just as adorable as can be!? I also used some bits and pieces from Hooga Booga. Both sets are, of course, from MFT, but Flopsey won't be making his appearance on the website till Wednesday (tomorrow) at 10pm, right after the release cocktail party at 9pm!

PP is from BG's Cupcake line. Image is colored with Copics on MFT's new SPLENDIFEROUS paper panels! (They ROCK with Copics! I promise - they're my new FAVE!) Ribbon is from AC, and the button is from Creative Cafe.

And now I must direct you to the next stop on your stampy journey! Click HERE to keep on going, and to check out what Natalie has for you! Have fun!! There's a chance for a pot-o-gold at the end of the Hop, don't miss it!

Till later!


MFTeaser: Snuggle Bunnies

This card was made with one of the new Stephanie Fizer MFT sets, called Snuggle Bunnies. Ain't they cute!? There is also an image of them sitting on the moon, which is totally too adorable to be believed! For the clouds and grass, I also used MFT's Hooga Booga set - love that one!

The patterned paper is from MFT's new paper line, Chocolate Kiss! Everyone loves brown and pink, , and that's exactly what this is! The ribbon and button is also available from MFT! Can I TELL you how much I'm psyched that MFT is now carrying BUTTONS!!!
The pic above shows their cutie tails, complete with Liquid Applique and pink Shimmerz for some sparkle and a touch of color. :)I also painted some Shimmerz on the sentiment.
The MFT monthly Blog Hop is tonight at 10pm! (Yes, a different time then normal.) So, make sure that you "hop" back by here to check it out! And remember, tomorrow is the release party at 9pm with the sets going LIVE at 10pm!
And now I'm off! Till later!

MFTeaser: Owls and Bluebells

(So, after having just now noticed the title of this set, Owls and Bluebells, I realized that I probably colored these flowers the wrong color, but call it artistic license! LOL)

It's that time again! Who's up for some Teasers? This is a Stephanie Fizer set to be released from MFT this Wednesday, along with three other sets! I just love these little owls! I also love the font for the sentiments in this set.

This is a 4 1/4 square card. I used Copics to color the main image and Nesties to cut it out. I also happen to like the color combination. What do you think?

Well, I'm slowly getting more used to the idea of moving, and I'm actually starting to look forward to it. It's going to be difficult, but I feel like it will be worth it in the end. Currently, I'm organizing and throwing out. I figure it will be MUCH easier to pack when I'm not analyzing each thing I'm putting into the box! LOL

Anywho, I'll have another Teaser card for you tomorrow! Till then...
