I love to draw. More specifically doodle.
My friend Clint, and I have been joking about who is the better artist. He said he has really great skills with crayons, I told him... I prefer sharpie!

Many of you have seen these doodles before.. This is for his fridge! :) :) Sharpie and White (GP 110 Cardstock)

Happy Birthday!! :)
I think so far for 2012 I am obsessed with the Bellas... or atleast for this month. :)

I make cards for my friends per birth month and mail them out to them. This happens to be a JANUARY birth month card :)

They are so fun and versatile! I think there is one for just about every occasion!

I received this particular bella in a WRAK :) Actually everything on this card is from WRAK! :)

She is colored with Prismas, and SU Markers!

A Happy 25th Birthday is coming up this month. For my friends birthday, I have made them 25 birthday cards. :) I know, I have over done myself, but for this person I would do just about anything.

This is a combo of ippity {fishy philosophy} and Bombshell stamps vintage mermaid. I love these stamps, and why not create this for someone who loves fishing/ and the water?

INK: SU variety of blues, but really bermuda bay!, Browns, and colored with SU markers, and Prismas.

Stickles, and Bleach were also used! :)

Nothing is better than a love note. :) I have a good friend of mine who is back into my life who I have been sharing notes with. Sometimes, you just need a good laugh.... or something to share how you feel.

I personally LOVE this stamp set, Maid for You, by MFT. It is probably my go to stamp set now adays. Especially with Valentines Day right around the corner!

All papers are DCWV, Recollections, or out of my stash.

Colored with Prismas, and Stampin Up Markers.... actually a lot of the new in-colors were used for this card.

I even tried getting the inside to match the outside.

I hope my friend enjoys it.

Retired: SU Fly Fishing

Hey friends!
I borrowed this stamp set Fly Fishing from my mom. I found it perfect for my someone special's birthday card! I used Recollections Spice Market papers, and some scrap paper my mom had left behind to make this card. I even used Stickles. And I am anti glitter too! My friend is really big into fishing... I think more Bass fishing than Fly, but its still perfect!

Stamping Bella Bellas are one of my favorite stamps. :)
She is colored with SU Markers, and Prismas. My mediums of choice.

I mass produced these for OWH. :) In a variety of colors, and styles. Hopefully they find a fun home!

Its been awhile, how about some HOUSE MOUSE?! I love this little stamp. I actually received some stamped images from SCS-DSS and I knew I had to have it. :) Sent my mom on a while goose chase, and she found it!! :)

This little creature has been colored with SU Markers, and Prismas.

What a perfect Valentines Day card.... maybe with this sentiment.... Youre hot?

Happy New Year!!! 2012

Wow , I havent posted a blog post since late August!! Where have I been!? Well I have been still crafting like crazy. I met my 2011 card goal and almost surpassing it by almost double! 2011 had been a crazy year for Diem and I. We lost some amazing people in our lives, and most recently a very good friend of mine from college, Charley passed away Dec 24. He was one of the most amazing people that I ever met during my time at IWC. He was actually one of the very first people I ever met there.

I coached my very first season of High School soccer, and I plan on doing it again next year. I loved my little JV girls team. The girls became family to Diem and I and they are sure making me worry what Diem will be like in her teen years!!

As it is the start of 2012, it has almost been a year since Cortney's death. Not a day doesnt go by where I dont think of her. Diem asks about her all the time which makes it hard, but we always take time to remember her and talk about how much she affected our lives.

So on a positive note for '12. I have come up with 3 simple goals. Not resolutions, just GOALS.

1) Make 2500 Cards
2) Keep track of how much I spend on Cardmaking supplies
3) Keep track of how much I spend on postage.

The last two have been things I have been thinking about for a while. I mean I almost spent $40 on Christmas postage alone! I couldnt imagine a whole year!!!

As this post is brief, I am going to include my very first card for the new year!!! Someone special *wink wink* will be receiving this card for either A their birthday which is this month, or B for Valentines day :) :)

Enjoy! And Always be sure to send positive vibes to everyone!
