Duncan the Cutie Duck!

Hello everyone! Hope all is well with you today. Here's a card using the Duncan in the Tub image from last month's SMC release, it's just an image I thought was so, so cute don't you agree?

And a close up:

I used Cuttlebug bubbles folder & one of the mini border folders as well as Nestabilities & of course Copic markers. I finally have all the Ciao sets but not without issues, you may like this story... I order my final set "D" on New Year's Eve just before we went out to our friends house, I ordered them through using a 40% off coupon so the set was $89.99 plus shipping. Two weeks later I went straight home after work (I work only til noon on Fridays!) & there was a box at the door, mind you I didn't expect it until Saturday so I was so excited I nearly ran out of the garage. I get in the door & do a few things, settle down to open the box & be happy that I finally have all the markers I worked for & low & behold in the box is set "B"... I already have this set. I ended up having to return it with the label they sent me since it was their fault & finally received set "D" this past Tuesday boy what a joke that was... On the most part is pretty good to order from but this time I almost wrote them off... Well let me know what you think of my Duncan sample if you have time to leave a comment & be sure to come back tomorrow for the Sew Many Cards new release blog hop. I think you'll like my sample :) Thanks for stopping by! Have a great day!

Sew Many Cards Cutie!

Hi all! Sorry for my disappearing act... been unusually busy. Tonight I put my foot down & said I need to get my blog updated & work on some more coloring project :) So as soon as I'm done writing this & getting one done for tomorrow I plan to relax coloring... Here's a project I worked on this past weekend. This Sew Many Cards image has to be one of my "favorites" whatever that means, they are all my "favorites" :)

A Valentine box filled with a bag of candy made with the Hershey image, too cute!

A closer view:

High Hopes Samples

Hi there, if you're just stopping by be sure to scroll down for my earlier post. As promised here's the High Hopes Stamps samples I wanted to share:

First up is this oh so cute little girl with the kittens in her basket, one of the images I had to have...

Next would be the brunette of the boy and icecream with his dog, another cute one I had to have.

The last one is the blonde boy version of the above card. So much fun to color.

I purchased these stamps with some Christmas money from 7 Kids College Fund what fast shipping too, just what everyone who has done business with them has said. Large selection to choose from too.

Oh if you've read any of my prior posts you'll see that I've had nothing but trouble with my camera & I think my DD & I figured out why looks like the problem wasn't the camera but the Kodak gallery software I was using to download my cards. We figured out how to download them without it and I was able to get every picture I had on my camera downloaded. Awesome, I'm so happy! Well thanks for stopping by today, hope you have a great day!

I Have a Winner!

Good Morning, hope all is well in your part of the world today. This is post one of two for the day. First up is the winner of the image from my blog hop, I love the amount of comments left & the image I shared is sooooo cute that the winner is so lucky to be getting it for "free".

The winner chosen is Michele Hileman congrats Michele, please e-mail Jeri at

Wildflower Patch Kids

Good morning & happy Monday (or not so happy for those of us off to work outside the house :()
I worked on several things this past weekend namely samples to submit for the Wildflower Patch Kids DT as I fell in love with the images & they've now gone all digital with this particular line. You may remember some of the gift card holders I made this past Christmas with the images Lily & Sage, well now there's a new image called Violet & she is too cute, I made a few cards & a magnetic cork board too, check them out:

Doesn't she have such a cute face? Be sure to come back tomorrow & check out a couple samples I made with some new High Hopes stamps I got for Christmas :) Hope you have a great day!

Good Sunday Morning!

Wow, I cannot believe the number of comments left on my last post it's great! SMC is having a terrific new release as all the images are super cute. I purchased some others for my collection that I had to have & hope to have samples done really soon.

In the meantime here's a card I did a few weeks back using the free image I had gotten from the Greeting Farm's blog I had also made some thank you cards to send to some vendors of my day job for the holiday gifts they sent my staff & I. I used the Star Cuttlebug embossing folder & the Spellbinders Star & Pinking circle. Isn't he cute?

Here's the card I created for my female staff at my day job, each year I create a card & duplicate it for each of them, & there's already been 2 birthdays so I have 7 more to make to cover the year :) I used my new Martha Stewart cupcake border stamp & the cupcake is from my Hero Arts cupcake set. I also used my cuttlebug candle embossing folder. I'd love to hear what you think.

Thanks for stopping by, I'm off to work on some other projects to share this week. Have a great day!
