My celebration atc swap cards & New Stamps

These are the atcs that I am sending across the pond. Hope they enjoy them I was in the Halloween mood. Since I got some new Halloween stamps.

I also got some new stamps in the mail. I going to ink them up later today.

TGIF and playing again

Well it's Friday I would of had an easy day if I didn't say yes to two little ones. looks like the two I have here are going home early. But anyway I got my Spellbinders tan embossing mats in the mail yesterday. I got them to try out my friskars embossing plates in my cuttle bug. It really does work. I found a utube video saying it worked so I just had to give it a try. I love some of the textures that friskars has but that little tool thing just doesn't work. The BUG does..

I been Playing. Shhh don't tell

Yes I got to play today and boy did I have a good time. I made 7 cards today. Some are the same since I like to have extra on hand to mail out to my chemo buddies.

The first card is a Matchbook card. I did a bit different than the instructions. I wanted a smaller look to the bottom. I used my fancy scissors to cut the bottom to hopefully it looks like waves. The girl on the front is from a retired TAC set called summer princess. I think she looks so cute like the coppertone baby. I used double sided paper I got from Sam's club than mounted a yellow to try and help make it pop.

The second card is a shadow box card. It for a swap that I am in. Where you have to use more than one stamp. So I think I did that. I used a set from Stampin up it's called fishy friends. I used the same doubled sided paper from Sam's club. Ok cuz you get 320 sheets of doubled sided cardstock for $20. I love it. So cool you get a bunch of each style so you don't feel like you need to horde it. I stamped the images on white card stock colored them in with watercolor pencils and tombow markers added some glitter to the star fish (cuz she is the star right?) I love those shadow box cards. I thought they were hard to make. Nope..

Ok the third card I messed up on and got to thinking hey that looks like a martini olive. LOL so this is my olive card LOL ok be funny for a b-day for an adult ect.. I was trying to make a viewfinder card and didn't have a cirle coluzzle so I figure I will just use the oval. Well it of course doesn't work but I had fun trying. So Cheers.

Good Mail Day

Oh I had a good mail day today. Got a swap card and some stamps. Can't ask for more than that..
Here is the music swap card I got from CMBH (cards made by hand)

Ally Girl

Here is a pic of my Moluccan Cockatoo Ally. She is the coolest bird well beside Merlin my grey. The best we can tell she is 20 yrs old.

ATC from Carrie

This is the cool ATC card that Carrie made for me. Pretty cool.

Good Monday to you all

Well it was a nice 3 day weekend. I wish every weekend was a 3 dayer. But the fun is over and it's time to get back to work. Here is a card that finished last night. I have one more to finish coloring in today. Not sure if I am going to use them as swap cards or not. I like the DS paper but it limits the stamping you can do on the cards. I want to try the new card that Dawn put up on her site. Maybe I will be able to do that today. It's a view Master Card. You should check it out.

File in the Middle Card

I got it done. Yes I didn't do a lot of stamping on it since I used double sided paper. But I just got the paper at Sam's club 320 sheets for $20 and I just had to play with it.

So here is what I came up with. The stamps I used inside are from TAC. The Thank you on the front is from D.O.T.S. I got the how to's at Dawn's site her blog is listed on the side.


Blue skies are here again

Here is a pic of my 16 yr old son getting ready to drive my mom's BMW. Doesn't he look oh so cool?

Blue skies yes there are blue skies. Well my company went back home the fire danger is over for them. Hopefully there will be no more fires up there in Paradise. I think they are very tired of all the worry and smoke. I am going to sit and make a few cards tonight now that it is starting to cool down. It's almost 7pm and it's 96 out. But we are not complaining we are so happy to see blue skies. It has been over a week of smoky yucky skies.

Yesterday we went out on the boat and it was nice with the smoke since we didn' have the sun beat down on us. We still got a bit red I will peel a bit but I should tan up pretty fast. It was a nice day with family and friends.

Hope you all had a wonderful weekend.
