Happy Holidays!!

Like i promised you all i was going to do high hopes and i may still do that IF they arrive this week.But this is my backup cardand i love everything about it.I love Motivet and this stamp is part of their most recent addition.Isn't this image sweet.The paper is American Crafts and Bazill for cardstock.The card is 6x6.I used my nesties and i watercoloredthe image with a blending stump(s),and OMS. I love snowmen so this image caught my eye right away.I love the Paper too.
Motivet has some new hippos and even a hockey moose and they are ever so cute.and of course i have them all. Well i hope you all have a GREAT day,
I have a busy one ahead of me,

Sending HUGS!!

I love Basic Grey's Wassail Collection and i happen to have the matching brads as well as buttons.I have had this for a year and just started using this.The image is Humble Pie found at The Town Scrapper and girl is Sitting Ellie so adorably sweet.

I have had this sentiment for 3 or 4 years and i do believe it is by HERO ARTS.I keep it in a little box on my store table and i absolutely have to say it is my most Favorite sentiment and my most used.Now i have a friend who gives the best hugs matter what if you just had the most wonderful day it just got better when she gave you a HUG and if you had a quiet or difficult day cause lets face it that happens your day just got better with a HUG from her.I don't see her as often as i'd like but however we always exchange hugs.So this card is made with thoughts of her.

I actually got to stamp her yes real rubber and of course i watercolored her using a blending stump, and OMS.I used my square nesties and liquid paint pen.I kept her pretty simple but i cased her off of one of my DT members and although Melanie used copics i tried to use her shading as a guideline as to where i should shade mine.She had surgery and I hope she recovers ya darlin'!!

Well I Hope you all have a GREAT week and remember my special is on till tuesday and the PA DAY which is friday this excludes Wednesday and Thursday due to family appointments that makes me away from the store.

Guard your BANANA!!

Have you ever sent your kids to school with bananas that started out yellow and before the lunch break they are bruised or parts of the banana is/was i helped out in a classroom and the little child asked me if she could throw it out because the banana was "squishy" i told her to eat to the part that wasn't squishy then she could throw it out.It comes in various colors including red, but mostly yellow and sells for $6.98.Three cases arrived today but as already stated one case is already sold out.These hold any size banana and are garanteed to work.We have 1 in our home and my 2 kids that eat bananas fight over who will get to use it today.Banana Guards will be one of the best items for your kid's lunches,or for camping /hiking,or to stick in a briefcase/purse for a quick snack at work.My husband loves it for work he says its great to have something quick and healthy.I like it because i don't have to worry about the banana making it to the garbage or my freezer because its too brown to eat.

On top of everything else this product is CANADIAN.The person who came up with this awesome product is from British Colombia!! I am proud to be canadian and to sell great canadian products

Grand Prize Blog Winner!!

Now its my turn to pick the Grand Prize Winner of Dusty and Maggie with flower as well as the 6x6 BGrey Lemonade Paper Pack......And the winner is Anna !Please email me at so i know where to send it!

Thank you Anna for joining in on the Blog Hop and thank you to everyone else who joined in too to make this fun.I appreciate your support and I hope you all Have a Fantastic Long Holiday Weekend!!

You are The Pick of The Patch!!

Hi EveryOne Fall is almost FAVORITE time of year. the weather is perfect,the leaves change color,squirrels are scurring about carrying chestnuts in their mouths preparing for their long journey of winter.However yesterday i went for a walk with my husband and we stepped out and it was so warm that he said weren't we supposed to have this weather when the kids were home in August....yeah now they are in school and i cannot take them to the beach...perhaps the weekend.This cutie is CCD and should be arriving soon. I wanted a deeper red for the wagon and if i added more color to her she would have been darker.i stamped were with black staz-on ink....pulled out prismas and OMS and blending stumps and colored her up.For this technique you also need a sanding block to sharpen and get access color off the blending stump before changing over to another color.You can get them anywhere and stampin up sells them in twos for under $5.So you can find your local demonstrator for them.

I used my scrap paper and it feels empty yet simple so i left her the way she was. Inside it says "You are the Pick of the Patch" also arriving from CCD.I just happened to borrow this from a friend....thanks friend.I added glossy accents to the wagon,wheels, mary-jane shoes,and head band.And i took my gel white pen and added some accent on the apron and sleeves.For embellishments i added some jewels and prima flowers and red shiny brads.And i edge distressed the corners which is $1.60 at The Townscrapper (ME).

3rd Humble Pie Blog Hop!!

I inked this guy up on Neenah cardstock and used some of my NEW BoBunny paper.Dusty is one of My Faves.
I used my Copics which I am still getting used to.i don't mind them actually but hands down i like my watercoloring better.I used my cuttlebug skull that someone gave me and although to be honest i am not a Halloween fan it seemed to go.

This stamp is perfect for a teachers card for the beginning of the year but also i used this cutie for a card i gave my son when he was sick last week.Really who doesn't need a teddy bear HuG when they are sick!!
