How you Bean? Pocket Card

Once again, a crappy picture! 

I used my nesties circle, Fiskars coffee set, and some scrap papers. Little coffee cup has been colored with prismas, and SU! 

I made this for OWH. Its a perfect Pocket card :) :)

Have you heard the news?

If you did not already hear the commotion.... I AM AN OFFICIAL BOMBSHELL STAMP FULL TIME DESIGN TEAM (for the next 6 months) MEMBER!!! I am pretty excited, and if it wasn't for my Bombshell BFF, Rachael I would not have gotten it. She got it as well! I am really excited for the two of us, and be sure to follow us on the Bombshell Stamps Blog each and every month. If you're lucky, you may see a tutorial two from us each month!

In the meantime, enjoy this card:
This was Drewper's Christmas card this past Christmas card. Not the best, but he liked it!

Been a while....

Or so it seems  since I have posted a Greeting Farm image :)  And please excuse the crappy picture. Diem dropped this camera a while back and I have been with out a camera and at the time this was the best case scenario. But I got a new camera, and soon enough better pictures will be arriving!!

I used a MS punch, and layered different papers on top of each others for this look. I have seen it done on other cards around the blog world, and I figured I would try it out. I love how it looks, and so I figure I will do this again soon :)

My little Anya is colored with Prismas and SU markers (Typical I know!)

Its starting to look like SPRING here

I hate stickers, but I love these SU floral stickers that I got from my OWH secret santa. She also gave me the leaf paper. I love how it goes great with Kraft paper!!!!

My Name is Emily, and I am a paper pack hoarder

So, my camera took a dump a few days ago, so some pictures will have this black shutter mark in the corner. THANK YOU MEL FOR PUTTING YOUR FINGER IN THE LENS!!!

This paper is over 3 years old. I got it while I was a scrapbooker. And its one thing that I hate! FLOCKED!!! I hate flocking and flocked paper. I guess its a texture thing! But I do not like it. So who ever gets my card from OWH. I hope you like it. :) :)

Sentiment comes from a Fiskars coffee set, but I like it just the same!!!

Love/ Valentines day card :)

I love this House Mouse Stamp. I saw it in a Hobby Lobby ad last year, asked my mom to get it for me as she lives near a HL... well she sent me the wrong one. This year for Valentines day she got it for me though!!! :) And it was early too so I could make some Love cards for OWH. Well this card inparticular was made for my Aunt Marie.

These little critters were stamped in Versafine, and colored in Prismas and SU. Papers were on sale at Mikes, but cant remember who they are by, but I know I love the paper!!!!

Youre a fabulous friend!

This is probably by far the best $1 Mikes find! I have used it so many different times for OWH :) I love it!

I have stamped this hoot-er with Versafine and colored with Prismas and SU.... paper is from Joanns...  and its all peacock themed.... i believe its called Royal Garden. I love how rich the colors and I suggest everyone buys atleast 2 packs. one to use and one to hoard. :)

Do you like to stamp? If so, do you like to color your images?
Do you like Digital stamps? If so do you like to color them? or do you like the pre colored ones better?

When I am making a mass produced amount of cards (10 or more) I like my pre colored digis. But in general I like to color my own images... (SMH on buying all those SU Stamp pads in like EVERY COLOR!!!!!). I love to color, but when I saw these, and I was getting close to the Valentine/Love Archway cookie challenge for OWH I knew these would be a great time saver. I only made about 6-10 of these for my "mass producing" because I only had so much houndstooth paper. I love this image, and normally this isnt my style! But with OWH I have realized that things I dont really like some people LOVE!!!!!!!

I do have to confess that the sentiment is a $1 find at Jo Anns. :) and its perfect for a love card! :) :)

Operation Man Card

I dont remember exactly where this image came from. It probably came from my BFF Lena over at Scrapbutterfly... and her giant stash of WRAKs and already printed digis. Man that girl has a stash built!!! And she and her hubby, Tony LOVE LOVE LOVE to fish. :)

All papers are Recollections, and my man is colored with SU!

I made this card for my friend Clint's birthday a while back since he likes to fish too. :) With all this nice weather, I wouldnt mind fishing too! :)

If Only you knew... HOW MUCH I LOVE THE BELLAS!!!

I love the Bellas from Stamping Bella. I do own quite a few, but this one I received out of WRAK on SCS. The sentiment is a sticker my mom got out of a HSN or QVC scrapbook package that she ordered then never used. I figured why not put this on a card!

I made this card for OWH around Valentines Day. But Its easily a LOVE card which can be used year round for OWH. :)

She is colored with Prismas and SU. And all papers I believe are Recollections.

If you have never checked out the Bellas collection and their counterparts at Stamping Bella--- you should.. And would you believe, the creators name is Emily too!? :) :)

Lovely Bombshell

With this weather here in Northern CA... why not bring out this set, and the paper and create something ready for summer! :) I received these stamps during my term last June as Ms. June for Bombshell Stamps. I have been hording this paper from DCWV for soooooooooo long, and I figured what a great match up they would make. Its like Shannon made them for one another.

She is stamped in Versafine, and colored with Prismas and SU!

Hurry Up Summer.... Mama is waiting!

I love animal print lately. I have a lot of it because I have been hoarding it.

Here is some Recollections Animal print paper. I mass produced these for OWH :)

I received these new Nesties from SANTA!!!! I love them. I use them all the time now!

RTS Valentine #2

I really didnt want to give this card away. But luckily, I had someone in mind who would enjoy it almost as much as me! :) :)
RTS gets this... as this was his 2nd Valentine. Bombshell Mermaid,  stamped in Versafine, but colored with SU and Prismacolor. Also sponged with SU! :) :)

RTS Valentine #1

I use abbrevations. RTS is actually someones intials.  This was their 1 of 2 Valentines I made and hand delivered with some homemade goodies, a box of tissues, a 12 pack of Coors Light, and a bag of dog treats. For those who know me, know who this gift and card was for. Trust me it was a nice Valentines Day gift for this person. :) :)

I used some Bazzil Basics paper that I have been stashing from Big Lots, I used my Stars embossing folder blessed with the ink of SU Close to CHOCOLATE (since I dont use the word Cocoa). I also used my Swiss dots CB Folder. and of course my BEAUTIFUL Bombshell Cowgirl. I love her. Minus her armpit lines. I always think its HAIR!!! She is also stamped in SU, and colored with SU and Prismas. The revolvers are Real Red, and Pacific Point. :) :)

Enjoy!! Because he did!

Ah, March youre here!

Dear Miss March.
What a fun month you are! I am waiting for you to figure out Spring is coming soon, and your friend Mr. Sun is out to bless my white skin. I am looking forward to it.
Your friend,

Dear Emily,
Thank you for the reminder that Spring is near.... but you forgot to mention my dear friend Daylight Savings time as I know youre a true fan when he comes around. Due to your neglect, you have been blessed with boob burn after today's baseball game.
Your friend,
Miss March

Yesh! I didnt know I needed to be punished!! But yes. For those that know, I have very sensitive skin, and I burn EASILY!! Today, my friend Haley, and her friend Mahala went to the Mendocino College baseball game as they took on Laney College. I didnt think that I would burn, but I sure as heck did! And yes, in the area that Miss March mentioned. But did my other two friends burn? No!!! What the heck is going on here?!

With that being said, I am not exactly in pain, but I am definitely not comfortable. Hopefully it wont be a gross pealer? I was notorious for that last summer.

Other than being burned, I am busier than all heck. I have my family in town ''visiting''... we have termites and wood boring beetles, and the clutch has been less than effective in the Dodge. Whatelse can I bore you with but get you with the times? I know there isnt a card here, but I am considering about writing this all down as a reference of what the heck is going on in my world. But I can tell you I have made about:

 150 cards, and have spent $88+ on postage.

I am thinking about doing a 30 day challenge of doing OWH card challenges. Just a thought. :)
