I just HAD to do it....

I have been seeing this card at SplitCoastStampers for the past week, and thought it was adorable, so I HAD to make one, too!
He went together in about 1/2 hour so that makes it extra fun! I am gonna make a few more to send home for Halloween...I think my nephew, Hunter, will LOVE him.
I spent most of the day organizing my inks....I need to get some ink refills, so I made my list. I have to place a SU order in my round robin group, and I still haven't inked my stamps from last time, so I am gonna just get inks....I need 9 of them....go figure...LOL! Hmmmmm maybe that is a project for me this some stamps I have yet to use!
My DD has her BFF coming tomorrow for the entire day and nigjht, so I am gonna make my famous Chicken & Noodles for the girls. They will be HAPPY CAMPERS for sure...hehehe. Well, ya'll have a great night, and I will see you tomorrow!

2 Birds with One Stone

I finally got one I like for the Sketch of the Week at Sketches {by Tamera}. I also needed a Get Well Card for my Grandma who had Angioplasty and Stents on Wednesday. Thank God she is OK...Long story, there.

I have been loving playing with PP this week. I usually use BG stamps, and hoard the PP, but I have so much accumulated, I HAVE to start using it! I think I will follow Joani's lead and start digging out the old dusty stamps, too. That should be FUN!

I am patiently (Ha) waiting for my DD to get home. She has been staying with her BFF ( her Arkansas BFF) for the last 2 nights. Those girls just kill me! They are both "only" children, and they have so much in common. I talked to Ashley's Mom this morning, and she said they ACTUALLY do their homework and go to bed at a decent hour. We are both shocked...LOL. I guess as longs as their grades don't suffer, they can hang out all they want. They're both in the same AP classes, so I guess it is good for them to do their homework together. I know I'd be worthless with her Chemistry or World History stuff...LOL. Don't ya hate when your child is smarter than you? I know I do...but OMG I am so proud! Anyhooooo....I hope you will stop and see me again soon. I have more ideas I am gonna work on this weekend!!

An Old Favorite

This is one of my all time faves...again, watercolored. I love how watercolors allow for soft color or vibrant...I don't do soft well with Markers at all! I made this card for a Thinking of You for my grandma when I first moved to Arkansas. She LOVES butterflies and daisies, so this was perfect.

Well, I am off to visit blogs and SCS. I am up for some challenges, today! There is a new sketch over at Sketches {by Tamara} I wanna play with, too. Thanks to all who have visited and all have made my week!!

Childs' Play....

Am I the Child?

This card is one I made for a 10 year olds Birthday. I love to play with Watercolors, so I just had to do the beach with them. While I was at it, I colored the clam, lobster and stars with watercolors, too...LOL.
I wanted the present in Mr Crabby's hand so I cut his little claw and put the present under the front claw with a glue dot. I love all the Crabby cards at SCS, so I copied their ideas and used the googlie eyes, too. Aren't they too cute?

Be back in a few with another for you~

Ok I am learning....

That I dunno anything about setting up a Blog...LOL! I tried earlier to post 3 pics and write about them, and ARRGH, it looked like poopoo! So, 'til I get this figured out ( or can chat with one of my Blogger Buddies about setting this thing up) I will post one at a time.

This is a Sketch Swap card I made for a swap. I have been hoarding the PP for too long, and decided to do something out of the ordinary for me. It is a little hard to see, but the main panel is scored on the diagonal in diamonds with my Score-Pal and then sponged with Chocolate Chip. Hey, Santa, I need a better camera!

Well, I off to post another card for you all! HUGS-

First Post

Wow, what a week! I am still job hunting, but not real hard...LOL. I am in a Black and White Swap in one of my MSN groups, so this is my creation. Most will be expecting Cow cards from me because I am a major COW lover, but I saw this PP and HAD to use it for this swap. I just LOVE toile...

I want to thank everyone in BlogLand who I enjoy visiting with everyday for "encouraging" me to get a Blog started myself. I wanna be as good as they are when I grow up....
I hope to post SOMEthing daily, though it will actually be nightly, as I am a night person. Please bear with me as I get set up, and if you have anything in particular you would like to see, lemme know!
