Danni's Dreams Challenge

If you can make out the image,it's a fairy from Inkadinkado. I heat imbossed it with hologram highlights and made a little sky scene with trees at the bottom.

It's for the Danni's Dreams challenge which was to use butterflies,fairy,or angels. I also inked up the CB folder in a pink pigment ink which really looks neat,the picture doesn't give it much justice.

So at this time I would also like to Thank each and every one of you that stop by and leave such wonderful comments,you mean alot to me my Blogging Friends.

Wishing you all a HAPPY HEALTHY 2010!!!!

Mercy's Tuesday Sketch Challenge

Watch out,2 challenges in the same week!
That's out of the ordinary for this chick,but it's something I want to get more into in the New Year. So I'm practicing,lol.

I have soooo many images (from SCS WR) that I haven't used,so today I used this Bella one for a B'day card,and also I used the sketch from Mercy's Sketch Challenge,it was cute and it worked for me.
I used some Creative Memories which I've had forever for the ovals and the dp is SU and the sentiment is from SU Circle of Friends.
I also hand wrote the recipients name on one of the balloons.


Hot cup of coco

Happy Hump Day!!! Today was a cold day up in the North!! So great time for a Hot cup of chocolate,so here is the WOJ stamp that I rec'd from wish rak.
I didn't put any sentiment on it yet,not sure who it will be for,so I'll decide when the time comes.
Well it's the end of 2009,one more day and it will be all over with. I'm sure some will be going to fun parties or dances.
We are staying home,maybe watch a movie. Wait for an important call.
So to all of you that are ringing in the New Year out there,Have fun,Be Wise,Don't Drink & Drive!

Mojo Monday Challenge

With Christmas all done and a quiet New Year's Eve upon us here in this household. I will be playing in my craft room.
Hope you all enjoyed yourselves,we had a busy Christmas Eve but very quiet for the rest of the time which was A OK with me.

So I rec'd my new stamp set fromVerve Stamps a little while ago and they had the Mojo Monday Challenge which I thought was really nice. I never usually do challenges but this will be one of my New Year's resolutions,to take part in some challenges. They are fun and will make me a better card maker (I need all the help I can get,lol!)

If you are interested in doing the challenge,head on over to and have fun!!!

A WOJ challenge card & B'day card for my sis

Here's a B'day card I made for my wonderful sister. I used this sweet WOJ Lizzie image. Her b'day is on the 27th and always make sure I bring her gift on the 27th so she actually feels like it is her b'day. Being so close to Christmas I'm sure some years it didn't feel as special.
Even though she is older and like she says,she is only getting older,I still want it to be a special day for her. She is the BEST SIS anyone could ask for!!!

So I hope you are all ready for the Big Day, my DH and I will have another quiet Christmas. Having no children,we will be at my sister's for xmas eve dinner and then at one of my brother's the same night. So on the 25th I'll be sleeping in,lol!

I rec'd some beautiful RAKS in the last few days which I will post on the 24th. But Thanks to all of you who keep popping by my little wee blog!!

Have a fabulous week!Hugs,Diane

New Verve Stamps for me

Ok,this isn't the best embossing i've done,actually it's all smudged and looks awful,but it was my first time using pigment ink. I usually use Versamark,which I think I will stick to from now on.

Anyways,this is a new set I ordered from Verve Stamps that is called Believe and was designed in honor of breast cancer awareness. $10. of the sale of each set is donated to Susan Komen for the cure foundation.

It is a 17 piece set which will be appropriate for people that have had a transplant as well. So I just had to have it. I love it!
Another thing I discovered one layer cards are easy to make,I'll have to make more of these.

Hope you are enjoying your weekend,I'm sure lots of you are baking or wrapping or shopping.
Tis the season!!!! Enjoy!

The only mouse in my house...Henry!

I finally used my WOJ Henry the Mouse stamp.
I've had him for a few weeks if not longer. I just didn't know how to color him,so I played with the colors and this is what I came up with.
Not too bad,but I need alot more practice!

So Christmas is a week away,my goodness,I just can't believe it!
It'll be pretty quiet this year for us. With me not having much energy,my visiting will be short.
Even though the 24th will be a long day. My sister is having the whole family for Christmas Dinner. It'll be nice to see my sis and brothers all at once. We don't get together too often. Then at around 9,one of my brother's invited us over.
Needless to say,it'll be a long day but well worth it.

Enjoy your weekend and for those of you traveling,drive safely and have a VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS!

Gliding by...

She makes me want to go skating!! Even though I haven't skated in like...30 years! I don't think it's time to attempt that,with my luck I'll fall and break something. Don't need that right now,lol.

I really like how my card turned out. My DH bought me the MS of 24 glitter set which I used 3 diff colors in this card. Sterling on her skates,Turquoise for the ice and Crystal fine on her hand & ear muffs and the white part on her skates too.

I'll be giving it to a Tops pal tonight,I hope she likes it!

I can't believe we are only 10 days away for Christmas! We went to a lovely Christmas concert last night,they always bring tears to my eyes.Reminds me of my Mother when she used to sing at Christmas time. God I miss them most at this time of year!!! I find this season so hard since my parents have been gone to Heaven.

Hope you all have a wonderful day my friends!

Two more...

I can't believe I'm still not done my xmas cards. As soon as I think I'm done,I think of someone else. Hopefully I'll be done by the end of this week. So here are 2 more. Not much to say tonight,kinda tired so it will be a short post.

It took me forever to make these easy cards,but when you are not in the mood...

Sure is Frosty here !!!

It is soooooo cold here today with -27 with the windchill!!!
BRRRRR!!!! So Frosty the snowman it is!

I used my New Nestie,I know,I know,it's been out for a long time,but they are so hard to get here in our little town.
Easy peasy card for today. And I'm off to put up a few decorations. I'm really not in the mood and didn't want to put ANY decorations what soever,but DH said we can't do that. So I'll take out my wee fiber optic tree (cause we don't have room for a big tree) and a few snowmen here & there.
That'll make hubby happy,so you all have a wonderful busy weekend!

Rudolph in gold!

Well,I'm back,actually I didn't go anywhere,just been lazy. But I did go make a couple of cards with a girl that just started being a SU demonstrator. So that was fun.
This is one of the cards we made. We used pigment ink in gold and silver and added the SU snowflake punch in white and a few pearls here and there with a nice gold ribbon and ta-da like my great nephew would say.

So like so many of you,we have gotten ALOT of snow since yesterday and it's still snowing!

I have to make a list of things to do today so I don't forget for the 4th time to pick up my nestabilitie when I go to town. Before she sells it to someoen else. I ordered label 4 and it's in,so I must pick it up.

Have a wonderful thursday,I can't believe Christmas is in 2 weeks!!!!YIKES!!!!!!

Butterfly in December

I really like how this card turned out,unfortunately my photography skills are no good.
It does match,the ribbon and all,but not clear on the pic.
I love this punch,so pretty. I just had to try it out,and I was done with xmas cards for a day.
Even though I still have to make them for my family,maybe on the weekend. I really have to get at it,cause next thing we know,it'll be all over with.
Time just flies by doesn't it!!!
Happy friday!!!

For my Flaky Friends

Quick and simple!

Here is one of my favorite man,the snowman,besides my DH that is,lol.

Here's from one of my fav SU sets,Flaky Friends in Blue Bayou and I added some sparkle on his hat and a snowflake brad. I made a couple of them,lots of xmas cards needed so I gotta get on the ball.

I went to my Tops meeting last night and I stayed the same,yay!!! So now if I can stay that way through the holidays,maybe gain a pound of two,I'll be ok.

Ya right,a pound of two,well a girl has a right to dream,lol!

Have a super hump day my friends! Hugs,Diane

Praying Angel!

I just had to post this Beautiful Praying Angel I rec'd yest from My brother Rick and his 3 boys. Alex my nephew popped in a few minutes after work so I would know that they are praying for me. He's 15 and works at A&W and just had to bring it after work. Of course I cried!!!
What a wonderful family I have!!!!

Thanks guys,I love you!!!!

Congrats from Bella

Here's a card for a fellow TOPS member which was the Best Loser for last week. I always make a card for them,this week I used a Bella image and I'm sure she will like it.

Some of you know I reached my weight goal in May this year,I am still a couple of pounds below goal which I am oh so proud. Trying to keep it off is harder than losing it I think!

Yesterday was another productive card making night. I made another 7 xmas cards,the only thing,they are all for people that asked for orders at TOPS.

Hope you all had a great start of the week. I hope to have another productive day!!!
