Hello...


How have ya'll been? I have been pretty busy with work, kids, ect. My new job is going very well and I am getting in the swing of things again after not working for so long.
I made this card for a class a few weeks ago. Sorry the picture isn't great. The card base is Perfect Plum layered with Summer Sun and SU! dp (I don't remember the name). The image is from Dreams du Jour stamped on Very Vanilla with Timber Brown Stazon and colored in with SU! markers. The image is mounted on Pale Plum. The ribbon is retired from SU!
Well that's all for today! Until next time, Hugs and Happy Stampin'!

If there is anyone out there....


still hanging in there...... waiting on me to post something...... well, better late than never? Oh my goodness, what craziness came with October! I started a new job after being unemployed since April and I think that I am finally getting into a routine, when wham! Got hit by some aweful sick bug! Dakota and I both were sick this whole past weekend and still have that lingering hacky cough, but atleast we don't have fevers and chills and yuck. Just a cough that sounds like a foghorn. I think we are in a contest to see which one of us can cough up an internal organ. But enough about the illness, on to the cuteness!


I made this a couple weeks ago, but didn't have a camera to take pictures of it. Yeah, I know, story of my life. Anywho, isn't it cute? This is a little basket/bucket made with the Pillow Box die cut. You can find the tutorial HERE. It is super easy and so versatile, use it for almost any occassion. Since it is Fall, I decided to use Fall colors, Pumpkin Pie, Old Olive, Creamy Caramel and retired SU Designer Paper. I also ran each of the Pillow Boxes through a embossing folder before assembly. The sentiment is from the Yummy stamp set. I put crinkle paper in the basket and plan to fill it with yummy chocolates.


So, I hope to be able to take some more pics of some other cute things and share them with you soon. Until next time, Hugs and Happy Stampin'!

I made my own blog banner!!!

Yep, that's right! I made it using My Digital Studio. Ain't it purdy?! I am so addicted to this program, well, when I get the free time to play. I started a new job 2 weeks ago after being unemployed since April and boy is it hard to get back into the swing of things. I know that I told ya'll before that I would post more often and I'm sorry I haven't. I am trying to get back into the swing of juggling work, kids and stamp time. And I finally got my camera back from my child who has had it for some time now. So now I can actually take pics of stuff I've made. As soon as I clean off my desk so I'll have a place to take those pictures, I'll get all the new stuff posted, including pics from the craft fair table from a couple weeks ago. I really appreciate all of you that visit my blog, even though I have been a big slacker lately. Thanks for hanging in there and not giving up on me yet. I'll see ya'll soon!!
