Yet another card using the fabulous Stampotique stamp "Winter" by Jill Penney & Daniel Torrente. I just luv luv luv these stamps.
My friends are pretty good at providing hugs when I am feeling upset, angry and blue. Thanks Dawn, Janet, Lindsay and Naomi. All of you have really been there for me, always loving me for who I am. You are all on the top of my Gratitude list.

I am loving the Stampotique stamps my DH got me for Christmas in 2011. They are unique, and add a distinct uniqueness to the cards I make with them. Especially the stamps by Daniel Torrente and Jill Penney.
So sorry the image is a bit blurry, I have to find a new place to take pictures. The canvas I was previously using was taken and used to create artistic pictures by my kiddos. Not to mention that my batteries were running low as well.
This is going into the Stampotique Designer Challenge #94, Flowers. The paper has flowers on it, she is holding a flower, and I cut the design paper out to make a flower.

Another card, yes 2013 has me crafting. I am LOVING the Mary Vogel Lozinak stamps from Viva Las Vegastamps.
I have switched from Prismacolor pencils to KOH-I-NOOR pencils. They are like butter and they blend wonderfully with mineral oil and blending stumps.
The sentiment is from Inkadinkado, and the paper is from Stampin Up.
Yup using my stash and having a good time.
Talk soon ladies,

Hello, It has been some time since I posted, but I thought I would show you my latest kreations.
The above was a card made for my mother-in-law. My eldest Karlye has her sense of fashion, and shares her love for shoes; high heeled (clappy shoes as Karlye refers to them).
We were busy over the holidays, playing and baking. By the third batch of cookies (the first 2 did not make the cut as I messed up the recipes), we ended up with the delicious ones above. I hope all of you have a wonderful NEW YEAR! Hopefully you will see me post more.
P.S What were you up to this holiday season?

Happy 6th Birthday to my Jimmer Jam! My baby turned 6 yesterday. She is full of happiness, and overnight, she looks older, is reading French books to me, and just one happy girl.
She is going through a phase where she is just OVERLY cuddly, and it reminds me of when she was just a baby. I carried her in a sling so that I could keep up with her older sister. She still likes to listen to my heart when I read her a story at night.
Tomorrow is her party at Build-a-Bear. She is having 6 friends make Teddy Bears with her. They pick out a bear, pick out a heart, say something happy and make a wish while holding the heart, then put it in their bear, stuff them and then fill out adoption papers. Such fun! Jayme will be in heaven, as she ADORES stuffed animals.
This is her card,the same image used for her invitations. I try to incorporate her card every year with the invitations, and then put them in a memory box for her.
Have a wonderful weekend!
Challenges this qualifies for are:
Pile it On: Add some Metal (stick pin and charm)

It has been almost 3 months since I posted. I have been thoroughly enjoying life with my girls, and catching up on my reading and my Yoga practice. I feel strong, energized, loved, and capable of giving again. I recently crafted with my friend Sheena, and I have got that Crafter's Itch.
The above are my daughter's 6th Birthday invitations. My two daughters and I colored Popcorn The Bear, a stamp I recently purchased from Heather's Stamping Haven. We created these handmade invitations to send out my daughter's friends. They are attached to a coloring page that has all the details of the party. She is having it at Build-A-Bear. She is UBER excited too.
Hopefully I will have more to show you, I think I am going to start small, doing some tags, as I have really enjoyed the simple act of coloring with my pencils again. I have even re-arranged my craft room and cleaned it up somewhat. I have placed items that were gifted to me from my Oma around the room, she was one talented artist who worked with fabric and paint. You can see her handmade doll in my chair. ( I miss you Oma. It was nice spending some time in your home this past week, while on vacation. It still feels like you are there. My girls enjoyed swimming in the pool, as I did when I was a child living with you.)
Have a super Saturday, and be sure to stay cool on this HOT HOT day. I think we are off to the splash park this afternoon, after we drop off the invitations.
