Holy Moly she's still alive!!













Good Morning all you stampers!! Wow, I looked back and it has been since May since I last posted. WHEW!!! A whirlwind of things have gone on around here. I can't promise anything but I am REALLY going to try to keep up with my blog. I enjoy doing it!! Sometimes life gets in the way, ya know?!?!?


I've added a few pictures today. The first is our new "puppy". She is a doll. We rescued her from the local SPCA and boy did she have some problems to start with but she is thriving now. Are you ready for the name?? Scrumptious!! Very unique don't you think? We love her to pieces. She is about a year and a few months old and full of it if you know what I mean.


The next picture is my daughter baking. A rarity in our house but we love it when she does it!! Sarah has been doing very well and since school started this fall has been getting top grades. We are so excited for her.


The card is a simple one. I don't know the name of the Tilda used and I'm too lazy to go figure it out right now, HA!! She came with one of my mingles. LOVE the mingles!! She was fun to color. I used copics of course. I'm sorry I did not keep track of which copics I used, will try to do that in the future, I know it helps me. The embellishing was very simple. If you have any questions about it please let me know.


I hope all of you have a great day and a fabulous weekend. We are cold and rainy here. Nice day to stay inside and stamp or read a good book. Just what I plan on doing!! Keep smiling!!

Finally a Tilda to Share











Good Morning!! Whew!! Seems like forever since I last posted. So many things going on preventing me from stamping. UGH!! It felt really good to sit down, grab my copics and just get lost in time. So relaxing. I colored this last night and then finished it this morning. I was determined to get this posted. I have Maggie's sitting on my table that have not seen ink yet!! GASP!! Today I am going stamping with my Mom (Hi Mom!!). We go to a friend of hers house. She is our Stampin Up Demonstrator. Guess what?? I have goodies to pick up too!! Lots of new stamp sets and stuff. Can't wait. I haven't been stamping with the ladies in a long time. I really enjoy it. We bounce ideas off of each other and of course we gossip and eat. Just a fun time.






Anyway, on to my card. I started with a purply (is that a word) base from DCWV. I added a layer of Blush Blossom from Stampin Up, then a layer of dp from DCWV. I cut out a lavendar lace scalloped circle from Stampin Up using my nesties then cut my image out using the oval nestie. My image was of course colored with copic markers. To embellish it I wrapped some orange Bakers Twine around the bottom and added a butterfly charm. At the top I added flowers by Wild Orchid Crafts. Sorry the picture is not the best, must be the lighting. I'll have to work on that.






Hoping for some sunshine here in WNY today. So far it is not raining yet. Haven't heard the weather report for today. I guess it really doesn't matter too much since I will be inside all day and into the evening stamping. YAY!! I so need this day away from home and togetherness with the girls. Looking forward to it!! Hope you all have a fantastic day!!

Communion Card













Good Morning Again!!I wanted to share my nephew's Holy Communion card with you all. Need opinions. How is it? I would appreciate any comments. I started with a Navy CS Base by Stampin Up. Added a layer of Always Artichoke by SU, then a Gold layer from my stash, and then the vanilla layer that I stamped the image on and embossed it in gold. I colored very lightly with distress inks just to give it some color. The inside of the card contains the verse on the bottom and on the top the cross and "Jesus Loves You". The card took me forever to make. Trying to figure out where to put the outside sentiment, deciding how to color the image. I think it turned out ok, what do you think?? Enjoy!! Keep Stamping!!

Hopping Down the Bunny Trail





Good Morning!! I just love this Tulip Pathway by Magnolia. A lot of fun to color. I received it from a swap from the Magnolia group,along with Tilda and the bunny too. In fact all supplies for this card except for the flower were from the swap. The flower was from Diane at Magnolia-licious. I love the little bunny, done in shrinky dinks. Never would have thought of this but I need to pull mine out and use them. Really fun!! My daughter loves shrinky dinks too so would be something we could do together. Something that is hard to find these days. I don't have the copic colors again for this as I did this a while ago and set it aside and just finished it. Did that with a lot of images. Need to write the copic colors down I guess. I made a First Communnion card for my nephew last night. I am really happy with the way it turned out. I'll post it for you under a new post. It stopped snowing for now. It actually was sticking to the ground yesterday, umph!! We only got a dusting but even that is too much. I'm ready for sunny skies and warmer temps. So is my body. I have Rheumatoid Arthritis pretty severely and the damp weather does not agree with me. My doctor actually told me to move to a warmer climate, like that will happen. Have a lot of running around to do today and laundry to do too. Busy, Busy day!! Hope you all have an awesome Tuesday!! Keep Stamping!!!

Card Two-I'm on a roll

Good Morning again!! I had another card ready to go so I thought I'd share it with you. This one features one of the stamps by Humorous Seniors called Read My Lips Lucille. Isn't she a hoot!! I love these senior stamps. Don't have a lot of people to send them to but they are fun. I started the card with a Gold Shimmer card stock. I added a layer of what I think is baja breeze card stock from Stampin Up, then a layer of DP from DCWV. I die cut using the scalloped oval a piece of Cameo Coral card stock from Stampin Up and then cut my image out with the oval and popped it up with dimensionals. My sentiment is actually three words I put together from a misc. set I purchased at Michael's. It has all kinds of words. I added some bling on both sides...this is actually bling for flip flops but it works so nicely on cards too. Added a ribbon made with the Bow Maker and added some flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts. The Humorous Seniors line of stamps can be purchased from http://www.ibrakeforstamps.com. This is also the new site to purchase the Wild Orchid Craft flowers. They do not carry all of the flowers but they do carry some and are looking to expand their selection too. So as an enabler, lol, I tell ya stop on by if you get a chance. Thanks for stopping by!! Have an awesome day!! Rubber Hugs, Kim

Back with an Easter Card

Good Morning Maggie Lovers!! It's been a while again. Seems every time I turn around something is coming up in our little world preventing me from being able to craft and blog. ARGH!!!! Card making is my stress relief and I need good dose of it!! So today I have not one but two cards for you!! Felt so good to finally color and create. I had this Maggie colored and ready to go, all I had to do was put her on a card. I started with a Cameo Coral base from Stampin Up. Then a layer of maybe baja breeze? CS from SU, followed by a layer of DP from DCWV. I colored Tilda with copics, sorry I don't have the colors because I did this a while back. I then popped Tilda up with dimensionals. I embellished with a bow made with my bow made easy (love that thing) some flowers from WOC and a few pearls from my stash. The weather has been wicked here the last few days. Can you believe we are still getting SNOW!! Enough already!! Mother nature is really pulling a fast one on us. It's time for sunshine and flowers. No more snow!!! I guess though I shouldn't complain too much after hearing about what is happening in other areas of the country. My friend lives in Raleigh, NC and they saw a tornado rip through there. The scary thing is she slept through the whole thing?!?!?! It could always be worse I guess, so I should be thankful it's just some snow. Hope some of you can find your way back to my blog. I know it's been a while and that it has been sporadic. Love all your comments, they mean so much to me and of course so do you!! Have a terrific Monday!! Rubber Hugs, Kim

Spring is Coming???




Good Evening!! I was able to take some time to stamp and create this little cutie. She reminds me that Spring is coming!! I hope sooner than later, lol. The weather here has been up and down which is typical for this time of year. We could still get blasted with another snow storm or two yet. Today was just cold and rainy. I'll take that over the snow. :)
This has been a very busy week for us. We had appointments, sometimes more than one each day this week. WHEW!! Really wipes you out!! Today I went to the dentist, ugh. They found that I have an abcess tooth. The dentist said that as long as it is not bothering me that it can wait to be fixed. I was shocked. I thought those things had to be taken care of right away. Tomorrow I go for my infusion for my arthritis. I can't wait for that. It helps a great deal. Then to the pediatricians with Sarah. Another busy day tomorrow. Hopefully I can do some stamping later that evening.
For this card, I used supplies I received from a group swap. Love the swaps. AnywayShe took a picture of what her card looked like and I made mine to look just like it. It really is quite nice. I did finish the inside of the card too, something I don't usually do but am trying to do going forward. I started with a green cardstock base, Then added a purple polka dot patterned paper, then my image. My images were colored in copic markers. Tilda was popped up using dimensionals to give it some added dimension. I then embellished with a border down the right side and a swirl and leaves and a flower on the lower left corner. I added a gem to the center of the flower and stickled the flowers petals and the buterflies wings. I also took some Versa Magic Ink ( Sea Breeze) and lightly sponged in the sky.
Thank you all for your sweet comments!! They mean so much to me. I really do appreciate them and all of you!! I hope that each of you has had a beautiful day.
Rubber Hugs,
Kim
