I can not believe it is already the last day of the month, one quarter of the year is behind us now. I hope you enjoyed the video tutorial I posted yesterday on "Making your own dimensional s".  Here is the bird card that I made  using my homemade dimensional s.
             I just got my first set of My Pink Stamper Stamps and the set I chose was "punny-licious"
I love them. I am working on a series of these cards, I'm using only the MPS stamps for this set of cards. There are 25 stamps on this set - I don't know what took me so long to get these stamps they are adorable.  I'm sure I will be getting more. I'm use the cartridge Four legged friends- It cracks me up because there are birds and snakes on here --- WHERE ARE THEIR FOUR LEGS?
The image is cut at 3.5 and the card is 4.25 x 5.5 I'm using PTI stampers white for the base
and me and my big ideas for the B&W card stock K & co for the other

FRIDAY-making your own dimensionals

Good Morning everyone,
The wedding has really captured everyone's attention. I know I enjoyed seeing it this morning relived- I did not stay up to watch it at 1:30 in the morning my time.
It was beautiful - I promised I would give you a tip Here it is in Video form. Toward the end I had a little technical glitch, because I also wanted to show you that you could use and ATG gun in a similar way or double sided sticky tape, score tape or terrifically tacky tape.  They all work just fine in case you do not have a XYRON

FRIDAY- The Royal Wedding

The Royal wedding congrats to the Newly weds- I know my mother-in-law will be setting her alarm to get up and watch the wedding. She is so into the Royal's. I will finish the card later, but for now this is what I have to post in  honor of  their special day. I made the crown earlier today, it is from gypsy wanderings cartridge, I cut it at 4" and the teas were a gift I received for Christmas

I made this TAG for Birthday Sundaes

anything but a card-- I had made a few extra cakes, when I was making mother's birthday card ,so I decided to make it into a tag for this challenge. I really like the Bright cheerful colors I did use stickles and made my own dimensionals or foam tape, what ever you want to call it. I use so much this of this - making my own is pretty economical -- I'll explain with a video either today or tomorrow seems to  work just as well.
The tag is 4 1/2 by 7
the cake is from simply charmed
Happy Birthday is from Birthday Bash
I used a copic marker in green to color the dish
the papers are AC card stock and K& Co



Happy Birthday! MOM-- Today is my mom's birthday this is the card I made for her, I just got off the phone with her and she was getting ready to go to the beauty shop. I sure wish I lived closer so I could be with her today. One of my sisters is flying in tonight to be with her, the other one lives close by, I'm sure she is looking forward to being with them. I'm going to look for a challenge to enter this in-- The only challenge I had in mind when I made it was to make my mom a special and happy card, I think I succeeded. I will be back later with more posting

I made this card for The Paper Variety challenge Show me your polka dots .

A2 Georgia Pacific
Polk-a-dots paper: Me and my big ideas
self adhesive ribbon
MPS stamp- Punny-licious


Where did the day go?  I'll tell you --------after my gym workout--- I took back some exercise clothes that were too big--- because I bought the wrong size. They did not have my size in that brand so I went away empty handed. Then, I stopped by the craft store  -got a few items (did not go away empty handed there), I will post that tomorrow and explain an interesting thing I found on one of the blogs I follow or on You tube,  unfortunately I cannot remember who showed it otherwise I would like to give them credit.  It is all out there for  us to use, learn, and share. It is so cool. I will try to find it before I post tomorrow.

The hats above are from my knit wit group this is what we finished today.  A little over a dozen of us this time, It varies from 5 to 35, any given week. We stop for the summer and our last meeting will be Jun 1st. We do not do any knitting that day We have a big pot luck lunch.


I am off to the gym I will post something later

Now that I've gotten over the shock of the E2, and that it is on its way, I got  inspired to finish another project. This was a purse that I had cut out from Forever young on page 30, probably a year ago, it has just been sitting around being purple. I saw a challenge a few days ago, so I thought I would DR. this little baby up and enter the challenge, it has all the elements and I am the second person entering the challenge


Well I did it. I ordered the expression2-from HSN - My favorite color is green they have 1400 left at this posting-this is about 8:45 am PST. I won't be getting it until May 5th- There are 2 carts loaded on it, that are not available anywhere else and a total of 4.  Something to look forward to.

A bit misty today, thought it was going to rain, but it is just foggy outside. I was hoping to go take some photos of the trees that fell, bit it is still too wet to get close and now the wild  grass is about 2 feet high leading to the forest. I decided to finish up some projects that have been hanging out for a year. This was one of them:
A friend of mine was leaving on a mission trip to Zambia and I thought this was perfect to hold a gift card. Well I gave that to her and at the same time I cut a few  more so I could have them on hand . This is from the is DCWV with satin ribbon from my stash (I have no idea of the brand) the die is a sizzix

Good Morning Everyone,
I don't know if this has happened to you before, I posted my design for a challenge, but forgot to link it up, it was still fun to do, But it was Flaunt it Fridays last week. I'll have to keep on top of myself in the future.
Then, the good news is ---
I WON over at the Creative Cutter Room with this one in a random drawing click  HERE for the link. The prize  April showers cartridge,  which I am very grateful for and it is one I do not have. There were 26 entries. Your chances of winning something are always increased if there are less people entered. That brings me to ---------- There are only 10 entries in the Celebrate The Occasion right now, if you are up for the challenge I'd say give it a try CLICK HERE,  
CTO ends tomorrow at 11:59- Creative cutter Room has a mothers day challenge that ends in 10 days- and no one has entered that one as of this post.

This is a challenge that I'm entering :
Mary at Cardz TV chose a
Mothers day card  using only:
 blue, green, purple, and white
My greens are K&Co.
My purple is PTI plum pudding and basic white for the lettered part-
The gazebo is from AC card stock I cut it out 3x and layered it together to give it dimension
Sakura white get pen.

The funny part to me- I went to put the cartridge in the machine and it didn't go in, I realized I had never used this one yet, it still had the wrapper on the bottom.  This is so unusual, because typically when I get them I just cut out a bunch of images and put them in zip bags, so they are ready for instant cards. Sometimes that can be a problem, because you can have all these cut out images and they match nothing.
I'm also entering this in fantabulous cricut.
and  Celebrate The Occasion celebratetheoccasion


 I want to share this video with you:

Good Morning everyone,
I'm going to hit the gym early today, get a little shopping in, then  I will be back later.

I have been trying to keep up with some of the fun challenges that I like to participate in. This one ends in a day. A lot of layering for this image, but it was fun. Once I get the idea, some of the designs are quick, but This one seemed to take a long time think through and finish, even though it looks simple.

I can not believe I am posting again but I finished another challenge: BBTB2
I love this one. Remember a while back I showed you my stash of  pre-cut dies from cartridges This one happened to have a pineapple in it, I'm sure back when I got that cartridge (Serenade) this took me awhile to put together letting the stickles dry and all.  But, by having this on hand, this card came together in a snap. I love the colors  this card and the design of the pineapple from the Serenade cartridge came out.


Great lunch, I really enjoyed having the one on one time with my former student.  How sweet of her, she treated me to lunch and brought me this:

WEDNESDAY- MAG challenge

Today is the day, You have made I will rejoice and be glad in it-
That tune just makes me happy and puts the whole day right. I've been busy this morning.
I got my MAG challenge done and more. (page 68 EDPP) Look out I'm on a roll ---
I am meeting with a former student for lunch today. It is so nice to know that connection from years ago grows into adulthood.  I'll post again later for another challenge check back.
I always look forward to you rcomments.
Have a blessed day.

MONDAY( PST/TUESDAY(EST)- Celebrate The Occasion Challenge #10

This is my teams week to submit our designs, I'm on Team #2. I am really liking making more masculine cards lately. It seems most cards are geared on the more feminine side. I'm just saying ....

Recipe: This is a 6x6 card
The card stock is from my DCWV value pack It is a grayish green color, all the paper in this one is DCWV three different stacks
I used a Fiskars punch on the orange
The stamp set was inkadinkadoo
Color box ink
I used distress denim stickles and orange peel on the inside
 I personally wanted to make a more masculine card. 
Our theme this week for Challenge #10 is "Birthday (must follow the sketch)". If you are feeling up for the challenge, all you have to do is post an entry to Celebrate The Occasion, no later than Sunday, April 24th by 11:59PM (EST)


Hi all I will be posting a card around 9:00pm tonight. for CTO check back
I just checked my goody bag from the Women's conference from Saturday and had forgotten there were two Gheridelli 72% cocoa chocolate squares in there -- they are not in there anymore.

They went really nicely with a cup of coffee and sandwiched between two graham crackers with peanut butter.
Does that sound decadent?
 It was, then I fell asleep. I think I am still recovering from this flu. Trust me I am not milking this. Tomorrow I will be very busy it is my long day- then I will try to get a gentle gym work out in, ease my self back into moving.
Thanks for all the well wishes it has been a real joy and comfort to read them. I had no idea, when I started this blog that it would be like this, it is like another family. HUGS to all of you

 Early this morning before I was even dressed my neighbor came by and gave me these tulips.  I don't think she knew it, but this is my favorite flower and this color is so beautiful.     I love this orange against the green  and yellowish green.
What a great way to start my day. I spent some of the day out, getting some fresh air, what a great feeling. 
Tomorrow I will be at an all day Women's conference.
I spent some of the late morning and early afternoon helping set up for it.

Needless to say I won't be blogging much tomorrow. I should have a great time and I will let you all know how it went.

Hope you all have a great weekend. Remember to leave a comment for the Giveaway I will be drawing this Sunday 4-17-11 @6:00p.m. PST.

Hi everyone,
I was hoping to do a video for you, but my voice is not quite back to normal yet.
I didn't want you to suffer also (lol)

A dear friend of mine will be ordained as a minister this Saturday. Long story short she was suppose to be ordained last month, locally, but things changed and she will be on the other side of the country. Just before I got sick I met with her and gave her this.
This is the quilt that my neighbor made with the fabric that I gave her.  If you have been following my blog you know that she showed this to me two days after I gave her the fabric. YES you heard me right 2 days.
Who would have thought?

I had that fabric for years, the only fabric that I gave her was the striped seersucker she called it an honest fabric- What better fabric to give to a minister. Happy event for my friend I would love to be there with her to celebrate, but I will be with her in thought and prayer.

The size of the quilt is approx. 36x 48,
anyway when my neighbor showed it to me I said I'll buy -- I knew exactly where it was going.

Hope you all have a great day!
