Hello, hope ya'll had a great Christmas. We actually got to have a white one here in Texas, first time we have had a white Christmas since we moved to Texas 5 years ago. The kids were thrilled. LOL

These are the clipboards that I made for my mil Marie and my sil Joan. I got the clipboard at Walmart and painted one black and one blue. than I used a stencil and traced the cherries and the kitchen items onto the clipboards. I used paint markers to color everything in
and do the lettering. I than brushed a matte sealer over the entire clipboard. I used the back from a picture frame and glued that onto the back of the clipboard so that it would stand up. These were a lot of fun to make and very easy peasy.

Just Bee-cause

Hello, here is my card for the CAS27 and SC240 challenges over at Splitcoaststampers. It didn't turn out exactly how I envisioned it but I still like it. It is a very simple card to put together. I used Kraft cardstock for the base. The stamp is a $1 stamp that I got a Michaels a long time ago. I stamped in Basic Black ink on Whisper White cs. I than used glitter on the wings and fun flock on the bee's body, I used a yellow Prisma colorpencil on his face. Used my nesties (thanks again Marcine, LOL) to cut him out and mount him on Navy Blue cs. I also used my circle Nesties and put clear Dew Drops on it. Very easy peasy.

Here is a close up of the bee. The fun flock was fun to work with. Thanks for looking.

Craft Table

This is my craft table. DH bought it for me a long time ago for my birthday or Mother's day can't remembe which now. LOL I love it. It is really called a cutting table but has never been used as that. I love having all that space. It is a tall table so I sit on a bar stool when I craft. Underneath the table on the right, is where I keep my punches and Cuttlebug stuff.

Craft Area

This my ink pad holder. I recycled an old cassette tape holder that we had. DH mounted on the wall for me so it sit right in from me and is an easy reach.

This is the top of the dresser. I have some storage boxes on it now. They used to be on top of my craft table. Love these boxes, they each have 3 long drawers and hold lots of stuff, I have my heat gun in one. The tall drawers hold 12x12 paper.

The 2 baskets hold scraps as do the blue and green craft drawers.

Craft Room Revisted

Hello again. I am going to show an updated version of my craft space. My space is supposed to be the sitting area that is in our bedroom, well I took it over. :) My youngest DD got a new dresser yesterday, and we didn't really need the one that she had in there before, so I snatched it up and it is now in my craft space. The picture above is that dresser. I have so much more room now on my craft table and tons more storage. I am so loving it. hehehe

Challenge Card

I made this card for the CAS challenge over at Splitcoaststampers. I made the card base out of Georgia Pacific White that I got at Wal-Mart. The images is the bird from SU's Birdsong set. I stamped it in black Stazon on SU's Whisper White cardstock. I colored it in with SU's watercolor pencils. Mounted the image on SU's True Thyme cardstock. Wrapped green ribbon around it and adhered it to the card base. The sentiment is also from Birdsong and stamped in True Thyme classic ink. A very quick and simple card, gotta love that. :)

Birthday Card

Hello again. Phew, is it hot here in Texas, we got up to at least 101 today. Good thing I like the heat, just wish we would get some rain, we need it. I finally got some time to make some cards this week. This first one is a birthday card I made for my Daughters friend, her party is tomorrow. We have had a weekend full of birthdays, my son had one to go to today, but unfortunately I forgot to take a picture of the card I made.
The above card was very quick and simple, just the way I like them. LOL I used pink cs for the base. I stamped the balloon from Stampin Up's Crazy for Cupcakes in black Stazon on water color paper. I than colored them in using SU's water color pencils. Still trying to get the hang of using the aqua painters. I mounted the watercolor paper on to dark blue cardstock and adhered to the card base. I used SU's black marker and made the tiny dots all around the balloons. In the corners I attached some pink metal dots that I got at Joann's. Here is a close up of the tiny dots that I put around the balloons. Thanks for looking.

I made this card for Richard's cousins wedding. Can you believe I didn't have one wedding stamp in my stash. What is up with that. LOL I found this stamp at Hobby Lobby, it is from Stampabilities. I stamped the image in black Stazon and colored it in with Prisma Colored Pencils and baby oil. I than cut it out and mounted it with pop dots on black CS. You can't see it in the picture but I put glitter on the tail lights and the heart. The bride and groom is a brad that I have had for a very long time and finally got the chance to use it. LOL Thanks for reading. :)


This is one of the cards that I made to go in my Mom's tin. I can't remember what the DP is but I know I got it at Michaels. LOL I used Stampin Up's So Many Scallops. I stamped the image and punched it out using the scallop Punch from SU, I than adhered the punched out piece to a piece of scrap paper and turned the image and punched it out again so it looks like a star burst. Hope you like it, thanks for reading. :)

Card Tin

This is the card tin that I made for my mom. I really had a good time making it and filling it for her. The tin is from Michael's. The paper is from Paper Studios and I got it at Hobby Lobby. My Pen Pal Becki cut the letters out using her Cricut. Thanks Becki. :) I am still getting the hang of the camera so bare with me. Richard is going to make me a light box so that the pictures will turn out better.

We are still trying to get back into the swing of things since we got back from Omaha. We are still moving kinda slow. LOL
