Saturday Sketch #44

Hi everyone, man today went by fast, as guess what its snowing yuck yuck, my poor flowers, well here is my card for the saturday sketch, got this idea of what I wanted to do, some of it came out as planned, but like always I dont think I like it, It may be because its a male type card and I find them hard, because no flowers or girly stuff. well I think im done making cards for today, im getting a bit tired and going to veg a bit before bed.
have a good night!!



Rose's on Paper Challenge

Good Morning, this is my second try at the challenge at roses on paper, suppose to be a quilted card, for some reason the link on the site to my blog wasnt working so I deleted it over there and thought I would make a new card, actually im glad too because I really hated that card I made the first time, I like this one better, I had alot of fun sewing on the card that really is the reason I decided to try again.
think Im going to get a little housework done this morning and make some more cards there alot of challenges out there that look fun to do.

Saturday Sketch #43

Hi Everyone, Here is the card for the Saturday Sketch using my new prismacolor markers, I still need to play with them a bit, but I really like these markers alot, I think this card could use a little more flare, but lately my luck hasnt been so good so I followed the sketch and kept it simple, think I will be using this card for step daughters birthday thats coming up.
hope everyone had a good day,



I Have the bestest Husband!!

Wow is all I can say, look what my husband bought me today, I have been debating over copics and these, so last night I went to buy a couple of the prismacolor markers to see if I liked them, hubby went with me and bought me 5 of them, couple colors he picked out, so got home colored a image and realised I liked them alot more then the copics I have, so I showed him the image and said I think I really like these markers, so today he went out and got me this set.. He is the best and I love him so much, he really does spoil me, sometimes I wonder why Im not all that great, I dont even cook that much....lol

spoon full of sugar challenge

hello ,Today in the mail I got a ton of images from my friend Linda, we both exchanged images this week, and it was alot of fun, This image is from the spring kit I just received, the card before this as I keep looking at it the more I just hate it...lol so instead of trying something fancy, I kept it simple in this one, and like it alot better, sometimes I think I just get overwhelmed looking at other ladies card and how beautiful they are I want to try, and end up get upset and throwing the card away.. or making something totally ugly,So here is my simple card for the spoon full of sugar challenge which was gems/bling
hope everyone had a good day and night



Roses on Paper Challenge

I thought I would try this challenge this week since Roses on Paper is one of my favorite places to shop, great service and oh my super fast shipping. I've been seeing alot of cards with stitches on them, people using there sewing machines and I have a friend who just got one as has been making some awsome stuff, so I decided to get my sewing machine out, now I havent used this thing in over 10 years, after about a half hour I got it working. it just needed to be cleaned, it still looks brand new. so here is the card I made, im really happy on the way the quilting part turned out, The card Im not to sure about, but after spending so much time on it I decided not to throw it away and post it.
Hope everyone has a great day, I dont wanna go to work...lol

Sugar Bowl Challenge

Here is my card for the sugar bowl challenge, its suppose to be a mothers day card. I am totally not happy with this, I tried making the card first then adding the image sometimes that works for me, this time it didnt. my husband said whats wrong with it, and I know my mom will love it, but for me it just doesnt hit the spot like with some of my other cards. But I wanted to post it anyway.. Hope everyone is enjoying there weekend, they just go by so fast.

Basic Grey Challenge

Hi Everyone! I'm trying a new challenge this week, after seeing this paper that alot of the other ladies have been using I fell in love with it so I bought some, I have a paper addiction along with rubber stamps, but the past few cards I have made its been the basic grey paper its just beautiful paper and it all matches which makes it alot easier I think, and it's just prefect for these stamps, on this image I used a couple copics and a couple watercolor pencils.
I hope everyone has a good week, I so hate Mondays I just want to go back to sleep instead of going to work..
