Bombshell Stamps: Sports Series: St. Louis

My boyfriend's favorite team is the St. Louis Cardinals. I know... I am a DIE HARD Boston Red Sox fan. How did I allow this to happen. I dont know.. but we will see what happens during baseball season. :)

I made him this card using Bombshell Stamps, Bombshell Angel. I hope he likes it!!

Bombshell Stamps: Some like it hot


Rise and Shine!! I love this set from Bombshell Stamps. Even more so because she looks like shes ready for summer, and I am one of those people who happen to love the summer time!! The hop theme SOME LIKE IT HOT made me think of this set immediately. Plus, the color yellow. I have a lot of yellow in my crafty arsenal probably because its close to my favorite color ORANGE!!!

I am totally over this winter weather crap! I have to commute 45 minutes each way to work. It definitely cramps my style! So hopefully things improve weather wise SOON!!! 

 If youre hopping with us in the hop, there is a links below on who is next on your little tour. Be sure to comment on all the stops! If you do, you may get picked to win a PRIZE! So Comment away! There are some lovely projects along the way!!

OWH: Many Thanks

I received a thank you card in the mail the other day from an Airman who thanked me for my cards that I make for OWH. How sweet right? Well this inspired me to start making some Thank you cards for OWH. I dont make Thank yous all too often, but I found a stamp set Ive never used (Notice a trend?). Ive had it for over 7 months, and I havent even open the wrapping.

I also hijacked this paper from my mom. You will notice a lot of this paper in the next few posts. I tried using up the whole sheet on different cards, and tried not to leave big scraps.

Wish me luck!

OWH: Just a note to say Hello

I was crafting at my moms house this week due to me not being able to get to work from the winter storm we just had. (Winter Storm Q if you are curious)... I figured I needed to use some stamps that I havent used.... EVER! I bought this set from Hero Arts at Hobby Lobby this summer. Ive never used it. I know typewriters where a huge trend this summer in the crafting world, so I figured why not actually follow the craft trend and buy it.


I hijacked some paper from my mom, since for all of you who know my mom personally... she buys paper, and hoards it. She says she has to let it "age" like her fabric. Well... I think it needed to be used on my cards!!!

I made different cards with this for Operation Write Home. Did you know, that I havent made a single OWH card until Thursday?! Yeah, I am slacking!!!!!

Latte Anya, with a little profanity.

I received this little cutie of a stamp from my best friend Lena. She sent it too me after I made the comment (*CAUTION PLEASE EXCUSE THE FOUL LANGUAGE ABOUT TO BE USED*) "I would paper piece the S*** out of it". Alas, I have yet to paper piece her, but I did stamp with her a lot yesterday. I made this card for Operation write home. I figured she would, be a good help in sending some love home.

Winter Storm Q, thank you for the inkspiration :)

We are under severe winter weather watch with Winter Storm Q. (Great name for a storm right?) We have about 3 inches of snow since about 10 am. It lets up from time to time, but we are about to get some ICE!!! So I figured I would take some time and make a card. I used my much neglected Bombshells. I received this set from my Friend Dawn, over at Sunnyside Up. If you have never seen her blog, you need to. Shes amazing!!! I met her through the former group at SCS, Divine Secret Siblings. :) She is amazing, and full of artistic wisdom!

I hope all is well where you are... I am off to go make something else today!!

Join us at Bombshells for a blog hop!!

Greetings! If you would like to play along with the Bombshells February Hump Day Hop, you have found the right place! This month, the theme is "Some Like it HOT!" Figured after last month's "cold" theme, "hot" would be a good challenge to go with. And this will be easy, since ALL of the Bombshells (stamps and you REAL Bombshells out there) are all hotties. So please, sign up below and join in!!!

This hop will take place on Wednesday, February 27th...always the last Wednesday of the month. Slight change this month!!!The deadline to sign up is Monday, February 25th at 11:59 p.m. PDT. I will post the blog roll here, on Tuesday, the 26th. You will be responsible to check the blogroll, and of course add it to your post. Your blog post should go live at 12:00 A.M. Eastern Daylight Time on February 27th.

Please be obvious about your signup, and be sure to add your blog address. Thanks! I hope you will play along with this "Some Like it HOT!" theme.

Please note; if you are suddenly unable to participate in the hop (hey, life happens), and the hop has already begun, I ask that you please write a short little blog post simply stating that you aren't able to participate, and include the blog roll. This is super important. If the hop has already started, we don't want our hoppers to get lost mid-hop! So, if you have a teeny post up with the blog roll, hoppers can still hop without any broken links. Thank you so much for your cooperation with this!

Some Love bugs

 Valentines Day is fastly approaching. I made these cute little Mimi Lovebug cards for Daniel's two daughters for Valentines day. I finally decided to try something different. I did the handdrawn stitching, some bakers twine, and!!!! I used my nesties! (It was seriously time to dust those suckers off!!) I havent met the girls yet. But I figured this would be a good ice breaker? Making them Valentines day cards. I just hope they like them.  Tomorrow, I will try to make Diem's, then possibly my brothers daughters their valentines. Lots of love coming out of my craft room lately!!!Be sure to scroll down to look at both cards. Blogger isnt liking my post! (Even if they are relatively the same)
