Stylin' Anya!!

This stamp is a Greeting Farm Image...It comes in a set with differet pieces for the hat and dog.I tried really hard to stick with blues and greens but i ended up using pinks and yellows.Oh well I tried.This card is made for someone i think is perfect in everyway and her birthday is coming up.
The papers are by imaginisce,the flowers are prima,brads are tim holtz.....the rest are from my stash of embellies i have stored away. I used my w.c.pencil crayons,OMS,and a 2 different sizes of blending stumps for the coloring medium.

Hope you have enjoyed this card and hope you all have a great week!!

Friends for "Heifer"

This image and the sentiment are both from High Hopes....which i carry of course.Its one ofLast Year's release However it's one of my favorites...(got lots of those,but how can i not).The papers used are from imaginisce's newest line of Summer Cool Pack.I try not to add girly rmbellishments to a masculine card which is no so easy to do. But it can be done with some thought.
Lastly i used watercolor p.crayons,OMS,and a blending stump which i also sell.I gotta say this card is an all time fave and i hope you enjoy it.
Have A Great Day.

Cancer Crop In Arkona & Crazy Driving....Literally!!

So It starts Amy invited to the cancer crop in Arkona....I was pretty sure i wasn't going then at last minute i decided as well as 2 other girls to go as a group because it was cheaper.We left at 9:30 to be there by 10 and even though Arkona isn't very far...i wondered if a half an hour would be enough time well let me tell you with AMY doing the driving you are sure to get anywhere in plenty of time....and i was way behind her at times because i was scaaared to go as fast as she was going....eeeek.Here she is.So if she is smiling this means we got there safely. Amy also went to the copic certification course last week in TO and came back certified and as you can see with lots of copics which she says is the best price at Curry's.

Now also sitting in front of her are the 120 pack of prisma watercolor crayons....I was in heaven wen i saw these let me tell you.Whoa could you ever blend with her pencil crayons.No i am not coveting ......well maybe a tinnie tiny bit but i am trying not to.

Then there are mine maybe 36 in this tin also prisma w.color.They seem to do the job and i love them.I do however sell the w.color Lyras and they are awesome.
Well `we went around and did make n takes and i got 2 cards done yes in the whole 9 hrs i was there.Tomorrow i will show you what i got done.I was having so much fun gabbing that i did that more than anything else.
There are 2 girls i have asked to join the DT team for My store The TownScrapper and amy is one of them but since i just asked about 3 days ago i have asked for no answer yet.But i hope to let you all know by May the 1st.
Have a Great Day

Happy Tulip Day!!

Hope everyone is enoying this nice spring weather ......i know i am even if it is a little cold.I am hoping that the wild bunnies and squirrels didn't eat all my tulip bulbs.last year they did and i had 4 tulips come up....mmmm.Anyhoo this card was made using the Bunny Blooms.
I stamped it twice and i used OMS , a blending stump.a sanding blok, and watercolor paper 140Lb...which i soon will be carrying.This WC Paper is simply lovely.The heavier the better.

As you can see i stamped it twice for a reason.I needed to 3d the bouquet a bit to give it a look of fullness and overflowing love.Tulips are near and dear to me.If you ever get a chance to get over to Holland the fields are literally full of tulips a must see.As you can see i used my cuttlebug to emboss on the green.
Happy Tulip Day everyone and hope your day is filled with overflowing love.

Best 100 DoLLarS ever SPENT!!!!

This is Ben ,,,He is the awesome builder of this display.I asked for a pole across the top so i can have my own clip-it -up, then i needed something for all my dies ,the bigz and thick cut dies.....originally some were on my table some were on a shelf just taking up room, and something for my flowers long extended dies cuttlebug folders,ink pads and refills and sure enough i got MORE than what i asked for. And here it is.....eeek in't it awesome.I ran out of shower curtain hooks so i piled them into more than one for my clip it up just until i get more.The cards there made by Amy Leggate and the High hopes one is by Myself another thing you can use the pole for.
