Duct Tape Wallets with my Boys :0)

Today we messed around making Duct tape wallets. I bought a roll of white at Target so they could draw on them and know who's was who's. This is how they turned out...

Yes, I know that the flaming guitar is upside down :0) This one is Caleb's and that is how he drew it. Dallas wouldn't let me take pictures of his but, it is done with pac-man drawings, really cool actually. Hope every one has had a great Thursday!

Some Coloring :0)

So... I have been trying out my new Bic markers lately and I really like them. I do wish, like Tracy says that their was a flesh color. In these pictures the image on the left is done with colored pencils and the one on the right is done with the Bic markers. I tried to stay as close in color as I could. I do think I will be investing in some Stampin' Up markers after seeing Tracy's images. I like the way they look :0) Hope every one had a wonderful Wednesday!

Birthday Card

Hi all, Happy Friday!!!! This is my final birthday card for the month of March. This one is going to my brother in Nebraska who is turning 40. I used the Birthday Bash cartridge for this one using the card feature. I was also able to use my scrap pieces to make this :0) I put some stickles on the flame and the "sprinkles". Enjoy!

Using scraps batch #2

I used Mini Monsters and Doodlecharms tonight...Getting down to trying to match colors as best as I can now. Still have a lot more to go through but they are really small pieces so I'm not sure those will work. Guess we'll see :0) Enjoy!

Using scraps :0)

So...I have decided that it is time to start using up my scraps. I pulled out the Hello Kitty Greetings cartridge last night and this is what I did so far. This also will get me to use some of the cartridges I haven't yet. I think I will post some pictures as I go :0) Here is the first batch...

The one with the heart is driving me a little crazy, the heart is not centered but I don't want to lift it up since it might tear :0) Oh well, right...they can't all be perfect, can they?

St Patrick's Day Cards

I created these cards using a technique that my friend Heather (GreenScrapinMachine - YT) showed. It is called the One Sheet Wonder. You can make 10 cards using one sheet of 8 1/2 x 11. This was really fun. Her and I were skyping last night and I told her I was going to try this. Well, today I just jumped right into it. I added my own touch along the way of course. Super easy and I think they turned out super cute. Give it a try :0) Here is where you can find the pdf file One Sheet Wonder. Have fun!

New Markers, YAY!

My absolute wonderful Mom did it again! She heard me talking about wanting these markers for a while now and guess what came today?! I have tested every color and I love them all. Now I can really start coloring some of my stamp images like I want to. She got me the fine and ultra fine, that is why there are two different sets. We got them from and they were delivered fedex. It take about a week but I think it is worth the wait. Hope everyone had a great day!

Altered Frame :0)

This is my very 1st altered frame so don't be too harsh :0) I purchased the frame at my local Dollar Tree. It is only a 3 1/2 x 5. I wanted to start small to get the feel of it. I first painted the entire frame with some acrylic paint in a cream color. The paper line used is DCWV Linen Closet from the mat stack. The pearl swirls are by recollections and the flowers I made. I put brads in the centers of the crochet flowers that match the paper and I stamped the sentiment using a Heidi Grace clear stamp and I cut the shape out with my Cricut but I can't remember which cartridge I used. I think it turned out good and I am very pleased with it. I know what things I would do differently next time too :0)

This is what it started out like...

This is what it turned out like...

Close ups...

This is a gift for my Aunt so I hope she likes it :0)

Birthday card #2 of 3

This is the card I made for my brother Donny's birthday. He is turning 39 this year and he has always liked Donald Duck so lucky for him I have the Mickey and Friends cartridge, yay! :0) On the inside I did some faux stitching on the flag which I have never attempted before. I love the way it looks.

Birthday card #1 of 3

Here is a b-day card I made for my friends daughter this month. She is going to be 4 on the 25th :0) This is the first card I have made using the Hello Kitty Greetings cartridge. I think it turned out great. I flocked the nose and the inside of the bears ears and used bling for Kitty's nose and on her bow. I have to make three more cards to go out this month so they will be coming soon :0) Hope everyone is having a great day!
