Lottie and Gussie Gabalot....

What can I say....these two girls are so cute. Today, was a day of firsts Bella stamps and Spellbinders. I had so much fun...the stamps are super wonderful for people like me who love to color. I was at Lori's and we wanted to do something crafty before I had to go home. So I picked these little beauties. Today, with thanks to Lori, we opened her new in colors for stampin' up. I must say I just LOVE THEM!!! The felts were amazing to, it is a nice added touch to the paper. Lori made a amazing card with Bella stamps too! Check out her blog HERE.
My card started with a picture that I had in my head for a few weeks now, it changed a little bit, because I still don't always cut well...LOL! I used star dust stickles and they are nice although I got one big one on their when it came out in a big clump:) I was not sure how to fix it so I left it. Maybe I should have left them off..oh well, next time.
It took me a little longer to put it on here due to soccer practice and phones calls. I get to have my nephew come and stay with me...what a super summer gift.
Till next time keep smiling and please share a smile with someone, you just never know when they might need it.

Gotta love Stampin' Up!

Hi once again. I had some fun last night. I cased some cards that my mom had made from some Simply Scrappin sets, that were given to me and my mom from our crafting pal Lori :). With my moms idea's I was able to copy a few. Thanks mom and Lori, your crafting genius really helped me last night when I didn't want to think to hard. The first two cards on here are my mom's and the last two are mine. I could't have done it with out both of you:).

Keep smiling and have a wonderful day.

Thanks for stopping by. Till next time share a smile with someone.

Happy Father's Day!

Happy Father's Day to all of the Dad's out there. We had a fanastic day with my husband. The kids made some really great presents. On Saturday my daughter Kaitlyn went to a birthday party. The craft they made was this father's day card or the kids could stamp it as a birthday card. It is such a cute card that I am going to case it I think. It has a fake leather look to it. The designer paper my daughter riped the wrong way, but it still looks great. It should have been ripped more on an angle towards the brads (it was her first time ripping paper...yahoo!). Lisa had a fanastic idea and I just love the card. Thanks Lisa and Kaitlyn for your talented work and Rob really loved it.

Share a smile with someone today, you could really make there day. Wishing you a great day, thanks for stopping in.

Hi, everyone I hope that you are having a fanastic Monday!

After some encouragement, I decided to listen to my very good friend Lori and get myself downstairs to stamp. The result is this card. Thank you so much Lori.

I am going to try to put an item of crafting on here at least once a week, and hopefully more. Life is really busy right now with my kids so please be patient with me.

I thought I would make something with two different kinds of pink paper, chocolate chip and whisper white (all SU)

Pink and chocolate chip buttons.

The ink is chocolate chip (SU) and

Both stamp sets are SU. I colored the flower stamp with Soft Subtle markers (SU) to give me the different colors for the flowers and leaves.

I also used my cuttle bug (Swiss dots) and turned the paper backwards to give it a hole punched look.

Thanks for stopping by...

till next time share a smile with a stranger, they might need it.
