Bella - To Do List

Finally another project finished. I have just been in a slump all week. I think mainly so tired that I just couldn't focus. While in Montana this last Christmas, I took this Bella image along with many others that had been RAKs and my prismacolor markers and enjoyed many cold nights in front of the wood stove coloring images. So peaceful and relaxing.

Anyway, here is what I do know about this project:
Stamp: Bella
Ink: Unknown
Paper: DCWV dp
Accessories: Prismacolor markers, ribbon, brads.

Page 2

Another page finished. I haven't had time to do anymore as it has been crazy at work and I have been totally exhausted when I get home from work, but I have been able to spend a bit of time playing with my new pazzle.

The family name Smalley is another pazzles creation. I am having fun learning this machine and hope to learn more as the next few weeks come and go.

New Scrapbook Page

I am back to working on an album for my sister-in-law to give to another daughter. When my nieces saw the books that I had done for my husband they thought they were great. So, I am doing more condensed versions for them.
Here is the first page that I have finished for this album. All lettering was cut with my new Pazzles machine.
Love working the heritage photos. They can be so interesting.

Rainy Day II

Just had to do the second copy of this image. We have had so much rain the last few weeks, at least for this part of the country. So, I did the second image and did it in a totally different color scheme this time. And I had to include the yellow this time, it was just screaming for it.

Rainy Day

Another play night. And still time to play some more after sharing this card. This was part of a challenge on a group I belong to. Each person was sent the same image, and it is fun to see what everyone comes up with using this image. It seemed everyone was using yellow, I decided not to use yellow, that was harder than you would think. Kept trying to grab the yellow pens.

Henry Image

It has been a while since I've been around. Last week was just crazy, no time for stamping at all. Then this weekend I was able to go to the Scrapbook Expo in Costa Mesa, CA. Oh so much fun. My big purchase there was The Pazzle. I have been wanting this machine for quite some time and I now have it. I have spent part of yesterday and all day today trying to learn this machine, so much fun.

Anyway, I decided it was time to get something going again. I received this image as a challenge, we all received the same image and it has been interesting to see what everyone comes up with.

Winnie The Pooh

I have been wanting to play on my clean craft table all day. Finally had a chance this evening. I was really wanting to grab one of the new House Mouse stamps and my hand landed on this Winnie the Pooh & Friends stamp. Wasn't sure I would like how this turned out, but really pleased with it. I tried something new with this one. A stay put bow. This bow is not going to go slip sliding. Here is the link if you would like to try this: Stay Put Bow.

Bursting With Excitement

Don't you just love these guys. My mom came over today with 5 new stamps for me for my birthday. All House Mouse. I just had to ink at least one of them tonight before finding my
bed. This card just called for bright colors. Love the way this card turned out.

Valentine Card Received

I received this card from Susan Schuetz. Wonderful card maker.
A very different color scheme for Valentine, but it came out great.
I love when I get happy mail instead of bills.

St. Patty Card

Put together this little card this evening for a card exchange. I knew I had these stamps and have only used them one other time, but they were so perfect for this. We are to make a card using a St. Patty theme or green. This is the only St. Patty stamp set that I had. I had fun making this card. Here is what I know about supplies:

Stamps: Unknown
Ink: Momento Tuxedo Black, SU Glorious Green
Paper: SU Whisper White, Glorious Green
Accessories: Prismacolor Markers, Nestabilities, Cuttlebug

Received Card

Just wanted to share a card that added some love to my mailbox.
This card I received from Danni for my Birthday.
I love the colors and love this guy getting into that cake. Unfortunately, I was way to full to dig into any cake last night. I was what my sister-in-law calls 'Thanksgiving Full'. Needless to say I ate a lot at dinner last night. Hubby took me to a resturant here in town called 'Tahoe Joe's'. A casual steak house that has some awesome food.
And they sent me home with a piece of there chocolate cake with hot fudge sauce and a whipped cream icing. Oh, you can bet I'll be into that one in a bit.

3x3 Cards

I found this cute little card and cased the idea some time back. You can make these very simple or complicated. For what I am doing, I decided to make these very simple. We are doing a Valentine Valentino at work. We drew names from others that also wanted to participate in the gift giving. Since I am the only one in the group that does cards I offered to make simple little cards that everyone could share with everyone else. So these are the first of the ones that I will make over the next 10 days for our fun. The envelopes will be finished before heading to work with them tomorrow.
Sorry for the poor scan job here, just wouldn't line up right
for me.

Stamping Time Again

It seems like it has been so long since the last time I had played with stamp and ink. Guess it has, messed up the first project I was working on. I had started a project for Christmas Stampin All Year and totally ruined it just before I finished. Just as well, didn't really like the way it was turning out.

I had this little one half finished and decided I would see if it would turn out the way I wanted. It turned out very simple, but that is what I was really needing tonight.
