Sorry, I Frogot

This is another card made for the Paper Wings challenge. I used the stamp set "Hoppy Everything" and TACs now retired paper pack Frutti Fusion. I also used some Lime Green scrappers floss for the accent.
I also want to let you know that I have not forgotten the memory pages. I have had company the last couple of days, and doing the scanning and such is a bit of a pain, so I will get it done asap.

A Scrap Card

This is from a challenge on Paper Wings, We could only use scraps on this card...and even the main image had to have already been stamped and lying around.
This cute bug was stamped for me by another angel...Rita, I think, and I had colored it over a month ago, and then couldn't get it to work on the card I had planned so I layed it aside.
When this challenge came up it was perfect, and made a cute, although very simple card.
Stamps-Doodlebugs, Running Stitches, and Seeds of Blessing (sentiment)
Paper: Pretty in Pink? (SU), Black (walmart, ONLY good for layering), Yellow (DCWV)
Accessories: Circle and scalloped punch, corner punch for scallop edge, Xtreme white gel pen, black zig pen, and grosgrain ribbon. Oh, and watercolor pencil, dove blender and stickles on the image.

Memory Verses

I was looking at some of the old videos I have of the boys on this computer. These clips are about 2-2.5 years ago. Brandon was 2 going on three, and Anthony had just turned 5. I think they are cute, and I will share a couple of pages from the memory verse book I made for the boys tomorrow. We would look at the pictures while we said them until we could say them without them. (The words are on the pages, so Anthony now can't be looking at the page when he says them)

Build-A-Buggie or is it Bunny?

For this card we had to use the Build-a-Buggie set (I also added Speckle. Hoppy Everything, and Running Stitches). I didn't want to use this card in the ordinary way, so I decided to build a bunny instead. I had seen someone do this at the Kansas Angel Gathering in February. There are so many cute things you can do with this set, things that don't include bugs. It makes it such a fun set to own.
Supplies: Square Brads, Liquid Applique (for tail), Gray tomboy marker, and Noir and Boudior Blush Palette Ink pads

An'Udder Card for You

PaperWings (a hang out for TAC demos, with a great gallery you can check out on my links at the side) had its first birthday yesterday. We played a fun game of bingo, making cards with the three sets that were listed every hour. The first three ladies who made 6 cards and uploaded them will receive a prize.
You will be seeing the cards that I made over the next week or so...but if you want an early peek, just go check out the Paper Wings Gallery.
This card is a little brighter than my usual, but bright and cheerful is a good thing at times. The supplies I used are DCWV cardstock, Frutti Fusion? paper pack (TAC), watercolor pencils and blender pen, Palette Noir ink, Grosgrain ribbon, and of course, the wonderful stamp set from TACs Spring Supplement "An'Udder Birthday"

T Ball is Over

Well, the boys Tball season wrapped up on Saturday. They came in second for the season! They were pretty excited aobut that. There was one team they never could beat, but none of the rest could beat them. The coach from the other team said that we were the only team to really give them a challenge.

Here are the boys getting their trophies. I missed Anthony being given his since my camera was acting up.

I have been tagged by Sandy. You can visit her blog here

Ten years ago I was single, going to Bible college, working at a Montessori child care, and a demo for a different stamping company.

Five things in todays 'to do list':(1) Mow Lawn (2) Stamping (3) laundry/housework (4)Prepare for Bible fun day (5) Church in the evening

Things I would do if I was a millionaire: Pay off all our debt, and support the work of the Lord through out the country and world

Thanks Sandy, that was fun, and now you know a little more about me.
I hope no one minds that I am not "tagging" this on...most of the blogs I visit have been tagged already.

June 10 Sketch Challenge and Card

Here is a link to the card that inspired this weeks sketch

Supplies: Ice Cream Girl, Ordinary Greetings, Frutti Fusion Paper Pack, and DCWV cardstock. Doodling done with a Zig Memory Writer

Monday, June 9, 2008


I colored this image (I love this scarecrow, he is just too cute) to show a couple friends how to use watercolor pencils with a blender pen (don't look close, we were in a hurry). I then decided to use it to make a card for tomorrows sketch challenge, but couldn't quite make it work. I still like what I came up with, so I thought I would post it anyway.
I wouldn't have normally used that patterned paper for harvest/fall either, but I just grabbed patterned paper to show them how to draw their colors out of the paper they are using so that it all matches. All in all, I think it came out okay.
Stamps: Everyday Events Supplies: Ribbon and Zig writer pen (walmart), watercolor pencils and dove blender (TAC) Paper: DCWV and Provo Craft
