Happy Harmony

Here is another Thank You card sample that I made for my chiropractor. All the cards were big hits and now I have to get busy and make a whole lot of them.

This is the Happy Harmony set. Used the Stampin' Up markers, and used the 'huff' technique to stamp this image. Paper is an older Stampin' Up DSP. Though it is a flower image, he loved it because it was 'manly' colors.

Thanks for checking out my blog.

Christmas In July

Hello Everyone, wanted to share a card I made for our MCE (monthly card exchange). This month's theme was Christmas in July. I received Netta's name to send to. I picked this stamp from PSX that I found in all those stamps I picked up. Paper used was from Basic Grey.

Thank You

Another quick card this evening. Set is Stampin' Ups Alphabet Soup. Paper is all Stampin' Up.

Ink is Pumpkin Pie. Buttons are some in my stash. They look like they don't match, but IRL they match really well.

Thanks again for visiting my blog.

1956 ThunderBird Classic

I found this Stampin' Up set in that large lot of stamps that I came across. I love this set, the cars are just awesome in it. Anyway, this done entirely with Stampin' Up supplies except for the ink, which is memento tuxedo black and the dew drops.

Rainy Days

Boy, no post for almost a month and 6 new cards in 24 hours, and I am not finished. I do have a bunch of images colored ready for cards, so hopefully I'll be able to put a lot of cards on real soon. Plus I am going to be needing 30-35 for my chiropractor who has ordered Christian, Thank You and generic that he can make any way he wants.
This card was made with an image from Susana's Custom Art and Card Design. It is from the Victoria Case Hugs and Hearts Collection. If you get a chance go visit Susana's store, you will love it.
While talking about stores, a good online friend of mine just got her online store up and running.
Please go visit Netta and Faye at Stamping Palace.

Anyway, I had just received this image from a friend that was kind enough to share with me, decided to visit my LSS and found this paper by p i g g y tales from the it's raining, it's pouring collection.

Thanks for stopping by and don't forget to visit Susana, Netta & Faye, you will be pleasantly surprised.


Here is a new card that I made this evening. I want to try this same card only in yellow and another in a purple. The stamp is from ASX, the paper is Bo Bunny, cardstock is Stampin' Up.

Thanks for looking.

Christian Based Cards

I was recently asked by my chiropractor to make him some cards. He had mentioned Thank You cards, but then asked if I had Christian based cards. Well I do have some images, but not as many as I would like. Anyway, here are 4 of the cards that I came up with for him.

My Find

I must apologize for being so lack with this blog lately. It seems like I never have enough time in the day to get everything done.

Must share my good fortune with you. Last week I was browsing Craigslist, a favorite past time when nothing else is going on and I just don't want to stamp. Anyway, I found a listing that said she had 27 boxes of stamps. This sure got my interest. Anyway, I called the lady and hubby and I made a quick trip to the coast. I ended up buying all the boxes of stamps that we could find. 38 letter size file storage boxes full of stamps. It took us 3 days to go through all the boxes and see what was there and what I wanted to keep.

This is the first picture.

This is another view.

And this is the final picture.
I still have a mess on my hands, but boy did I find some nice stamps. And the best part is 80-85% of these stamps are brand new.
