This is my one and only Sparkle Creations stamp. I love all of Sparkle's images... but I LOVE this one... probably because her name is also EMILY!!! This is Cocktail Emily.

I dont use her as much as I should... She is one of my more neglected stamps. But I love her.

All papers are from Recollections. She is stamped in Versafine, and colored with SU markers and Prismacolor Marker.

Birthday Dolla' finds!

I love the dollar finds bins at Mikes. I found this elephant when they had their "Circus" themes going on. I had to have him. Because he was an elephant, and two because well he was more realistic in appearance (minus the circus get up).

This is the first time I have used him. I have used him in other styles... please check out future blog posts for that one!

He has been stamped in versafine, and mounted on Recollections paper.

OWH Christmas cards!

More Christmas Cards!!! You can never have too many!!

I used some left over scraps from a previous Christmas card to make this card. I also used some green patterned paper that I think I got out of the Mikes clearance bin at one time. I rarely ever use the Medallion from SU... and lately I have used it on at least 3 different cards... Maybe its my new go to stamp? We will see what comes of it.

I love these little Anya's. Arent they so sweet... and yet they are fun to color.... Not too much detail. Just the way I like them.

I made these little beauties for OWH, hence the different hair colors. I love pairing up my Greeting Farm beauties with Neon colors and cute patterned papers. This patterned paper came from a stack that I had sitting around with just 3 sheets of paper  in it... I figured. Its time to use up this stack. I RAKed one of the sheets (that coordinated with this paper) to a friend, and one of my blog followers (Jammie!!!) Now I have to figure out what I am going to do with the paper thats left as its NOT approved by OWH... its coated in glitter!!!!!

Dear Santa.... OWH Christmas Cards

During the 4th of July weekend, I was working hard on my goal of 200 cards for the OWH deadline for Christmas.  The deadline for Christmas cards to date is OCTOBER 31ST!! I dont know how many I have made right now, but I am over 60!!

I have been working hard on my stash of Christmas paper... I am trying to get through it. I have soooo much of it, and I told myself I cannot buy anymore until I use a majority of what I have. This paper in particular I think I inherited from my stamping sister, my best friend hands down, Lena.

I hope you enjoy these cards OWH!!! I hope they make it to a good home!!!

More OWH Christmas Cards

I am clearing out my old Christmas paper when I found this paper. I will not buy anymore Christmas paper until I use up atleast 2/3rds of what I have now!!! I dont have a lot but I dont need this much seasonal stuff!!!

With this paper, I had enough to make 6 house cards. I LOVE THIS PAPER. It really helps making really quick and cute cards. I used my Christmas {ippity} stamps for the sentiment. I am not really a "Happy Holidays" person. I am more of a MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!! kind of girl. I hope this finds a good family!!!

Happy Birthday

I got these "Have Your Cake and Eat It Too" birthday invitations in a Michael's clearance bin several years ago, and never used. I figured, why not use it with some OWH cards, and put it with some coordinating colored cardstock?

OWH Christmas Cards

Here is one of many styles of Christmas cards I am making for OWH. This House Mouse stamp I think is totally adoreable. Except for the fact that I like telling my mom that the tree isnt a pine, its really an olive tree. It takes a lot out of me not to color the tree's berries like olives.

Its been a while.....

......Since I have used any Anya's!

This is Flirty Anya from The Greeting Farm. I love her since she has such a good Rockabilly feel to her. Plus she is just like me... I love a good flower in my hair too!!

She is stamped in Versafine, and colored with Prismacolor marker and SU Markers. All papers are recollections. I used a CB embossing folder (borrowed by my Aunt Marie) and used SU ink over the top of it.

She is going in with my big box of OWH cards.

Masculine OWH cards

Over at the OWH fan page on Facebook, they were talking about how they are looking for some masculine cards for their boxes as they are all looking very.... summery and girlish right now. I decided... I need to challenge myself and make some more masculine cards. Most cards I make and generally unisex, but I figured... I need to really channel one sex over the other. I pulled out my Fall Stack from DCWV that I have had since... well BEFORE DIEM WAS BORN!!!!

This stamp set is my moms. She is very neglectful when it comes to her stamps. She buys them, and gives them a good home, but forgets about them. Right now she is on a digi kick right now. Who knows maybe I will adopt this set before she goes back to Arkansas.

I hope it finds a good home!!

Wild about you!

Most everyone knows I love OWH. This past weekend I was up to my eyeballs in making cards for OWH. I have dedicated my whole month of JULY to making prodominately CHRISTMAS cards for OWH.

 I decided I needed to take a break from them, and I pulled out two stamp sets I havent used in forever! I used SU Zoofari, and Wild About You.  All paper is Recollections. I love the BRIGHT colors for these cards. I like how they can be used as a love card, or for a child.

Mo Manning's "Trudy" Freebie

Mo Manning is offering a freebie for a short time. This is Trudy. :) I couldnt resist not picking her up. She is actually a "doll and paper doll dress" digi. I cut the top part of the dress off because I thought the bottom would make a cute tu-tu. I used dimensionals. to make it puffed up, but you cannot tell in this picture.

All paper is Recollections. Medallion is from SU, along with the ink it is stamped in. Trudy has been colored with Prismacolor marker, and SU Stampin Write markers. She has been accented with icicles Stickles.

I made this card for my oldest niece's birthday... LENSEY LANE WILSON, IS GOING TO BE 6 YEARS OLD!!! Where has this time gone!? I think this will be the most perfect card for her birthday.

Happy Early Birthday Marissa Anne!

Happy 17th Birthday Marissa!
She saw a doodle I did for my friend Jenna for her birthday, and she asked me if I could do one for her too. Of course I said yes!

This is a 12 x 12 doodle on DCWV paper (thats the only paper I had!!! eeeek!) and drawn with black Sharpie. I even put this in a scrapbook frame for her. :) I hope she enjoys it.

I met Marissa about a month ago, at a Top Shelf concert. By the way.... GO CHECK OUT TOP SHELF ON iTUNES!!! They just released a new album, called The Sound. She is awesome. I like to think of her as a 16 year old version of me!

HAPPY EARLY BIRTHDAY MARISSA!!!!! I cannot wait to give you your gift!!!
