Welcome to the last day of the celebration hop!  I hope you had a great Thanksgiving and will have safe travels as you journey home from the holiday.  Today I am again sharing a version of an "over the hill" celebration card, but with an elegant twist.  I really love this stamp set especially since I grew up in a firefighting household.  

After I stamped my images from the Celebrate Mini and colored them using prismacolor markers, I added only some prima flowers with a dew drop center along with some brads as the only embellishments before stamping the inside saying. 





Enjoy the Hop. We hope to inspire you to start your own Celebrations.  Get to work on the tutorials, show us what you made by Dec. 11 and check back on Dec. 12, 2015 to see if you are a winner. 

Giving Thanks



Happy Thanksgiving everyone!!



Thank you to all who are serving for our country (USA), your own, or have served & to their families for supporting them.  "Freedom is not free" - Colonel Walter Hitchcock U.S. Air Force.

Today I am showcasing an over the hill card with a twist.  I mean who says all "over the hill" cards have to be somber and just black and white only?  Right?  

After stamping the dinosaurs from Dino News and palm tree from I Need A Vacation, I pulled out my prismacolor markers and got to work.  Once the coloring was complete, and the card assembled, I stamped the birds from Scenic Selections, stippled some Tim Holtz distress inks around the edges of the scene then added a couple of 3-D stickers to finish everything off before stamping my inside saying.

Today I am showing a Just Married card using a couple of sets combined in one of my favorite ways - scenic stamping!  I started out by by stamping the church from Little Church then added trees from Scenic Selections and Tree Selections before coloring everything using koh-i-noor pencils with no blending.  The only additional color I added was to stipple some Tim Holtz tumbled glass distress ink around the edges before adding dew drops in place of brads for embellishments.

For my card today, I decided to celebrate the birthday of a young boy, something as stampers we always seem to be short of.  I pulled out Animal Birthdays, markers, a die cut scalloped card, dew drops, and got to work.  Since I was making the card for a young boy, I decided to keep it pretty simple, no real fluff or flowers, for inspiration.

Hello and welcome again.  I would like to apologize for the sporadic posting this last year due to my migraine issues.  Fortunately, there has been some progress in that department with a 3rd doctor's opinion.  However, the news was not what I wanted to hear.  I am hoping to be able to be online a bit more soon so I can explain more on the findings and what that will mean for my future as well as my overall health.

I have heard through the "grapevine" there are those that really don't care to hear about what is going on with my migraines, and that "they think I'm taking advantage of my situation" with them or even faking it.  For starters let me say, you're wrong!!!  Completely wrong!!  Second, please keep those opinions to yourself as they are just your opinions and not medical fact.

Thank you for letting me vent.  My doctor's say keeping it in is definitely NOT helping my health at all.  Nor is being on the receiving end of said opinions.   Please have a great day.

From The Heart For Paris


Hello again.

If you would like to show your support to the people of Paris by coloring and making a card for someone, please consider using this one drawn by Betty Robert from SimplyBStamps.


It's from her heart for the people of Paris. Simply fill out the request at the top of the fan page forum here:https://www.facebook.com/groups/486424581374935/ I just downloaded mine to start working on myself.

Today I am using the stamp set Space Fun to make a birthday card for "the slightly older kids".  After stamping, coloring, then cutting out my images, I added them to a navy card with designer paper after stippling Tim Holtz faded jeans ink around the edges.  For the finishing touches I added some bling stickers that wouldn't make the card too "girly" so it could be given to the guys too.

What's Been Going On


Ok, just a quick note to bring everyone up to speed for the last few months of silence from me.  Of course, once again my chronic migraines are out of control, my primary care physician has moved out of state, and now my brand new daughter in law has been diagnosed with stage II lymphoma.  You pretty much have to live her to really believe all of the stuff that's going on.  I will try to post again as soon as I am physically able to.

Thank you for understanding.
