Wine a Bit....

I've always loved this fat chef! Decided to pull him out again. I had found some great wine paper (Karen Foster), at Archivers awhile back. I layered it in the back. I used my Copics to color the chef. I used some dark purple fibers and a cute grape charm by Karen Foster. Hope everyone has a fantastic weekend!

Shaker Box & Cuttlebug Kids!

I don't know why I HAD to have this die cut by Cuttlebug....I guess I am drawn to anything cute! So the day I got it I had to play. I haven't made a shaker box in years and decided it would be fun to make one again. I used the negative space from my oval scallop punch. I cuttlebugged the transparency in the background (IF you click on it you might see is pretty subtle) I filled it with iridescent sequins for the snow. The paper is from Paper Salon which I sewed....yes, I AM on quite the sewing kick these days.....not clothes....just cards! I stamped the sentiment on white twill, added a black polka dot photo corner....which by the way, is a the back side of Martha Stewart's Halloween paper pack! I thought it needed a little black to balance the black in the penguin. And last but not least, I used some OLD acrylic snowflakes, tied some white floss, and it was done.

Bitten by The Bug Challenge!

The challenge for Bitten by the Bug was to use the Mini Monograms cartridge. I had to use the word, Smile. I used Chocolate Chip and Very Vanilla. I also used some old Making Memories fabric paper. If you look closely, you will see that I sewed....BY HAND...the little beads around the chocolate paper! I also added beads to the center of the pink flower. (Didn't know I was so domestic did ya? ) I have been on a glitter kick like some other stampers I know....and added some to the sentiment. Isn't everything better with glitter? I used some old ribbon and pearls to the picture anchor. (Is that what you call it?) I added a pearl to the i and a rhinestone ring around it. I was pleased with this card for a change!

Blog Candy Winner and Birthday RAK's!

Thank you for all the Birthday wishes! I am so glad to have met such great women! You made my birthday! Your stories really made my weekend! Some of them were hysterical! My random 10 year old son picked lucky # 32, Stampin Granny! Congratulations! Send me your e-mail and I will get your goodies out to you! This first card is from my MIL! Isn't she talented? She won't start a blog because she feels her work isn't "good" enough. Is she crazy? This is the cutest card! I sure wish she would start a blog of her own.....she is certainly "good" enough!
This next card is from the RAK club at SCS. It is from Sharon Broussard. This is the cheeriest card! I love it! Thank you Sharon!
This next card is from my 10 year old son. I was really mad at him this morning because he didn't make me a card, or draw a picture or do ANYTHING for my birthday! I told him maybe I will just "forget" his in February! He didn't like that much and ran and made me this quickie card! I guess it is the thought that counts.....right?
And I rock! How cool is that?
