I am toooooo stoked to share with you today! Two of my favorite companies are teamed up – and what better things than ribbon – and something to stick them together with! My project isn’t a card (gasp!)….I used Valerie Stangle’s pdf tutorial...Read More
It’s so easy to make a card to appreciate our heroes This simple card uses some Coredinations paper, sanded, a Stampendous Eagle stamp, a little May Arts 2 sided ribbon…and a star. WIth some paper layers, what could be more perfect?
Stay tuned…perhaps, oh, next week or so….for a coloring tut with this eagle. Maybe. If I have time. It’s my plan to do one for the big bloghop – and I’m hoping it comes together quick like a bunny! Or an eaglet. Coz I’m running short on time!Read More
It’s Friday, and I’m wondering if it was just me who had a nutty week? I was off sick one day, and the rest just got away from me in about every area it could. Yesterday, however, was quite the banner day. I had a couple amazing emails that just made me feel like so much that I’ve been going through is worth the hassle…and at the very end of the day, a work project that I was sure was going to tank in presentation came out the opposite. I wouldn’t have believed it if I hadn’t been in the meeting myself! And then we had the 100th episode of OWHtv – that was lotsa fun!
The card for today sports a Mo Manning image, Paul Typing – and it was kind of an accident. I was trying to put a light wash behind him, and goofed it, then it started looking like he was being lit by the laptop screen…so I tried going dark. Sooooo many layers of that warm grey, egads! It’s not very even, and if I’d wanted that effect there are a ton of ways to get it without the pain I did. But oh well. I love the design that came out sooooo clean and masculine.
Papers are from a Teresa Collins “Vintage Finds” 6×6….brads by BG. Copic colors E51 E11 B41 for the skin; bed & clothes E42 E74 E71 YG95 BV34 B21 B41; background W9 W6 W3; laptop C6 C10
Hey gang – tonight is the 100th episode of OWHtv…be sure to tune in! I have 100 things to give away!!!!
It just occurred to me it’s kinda been SRM Sticker week around here. LOL. I guess I get on a kick with something and just keep going…I just love the bold simplicity of their stickers
And I colored up an MFT bunny….not sure what I was thinking with his electric ears, but I do like how the heart came out! (That’s an XOXO sticker on it.) Oh yeah and this is yet more paper from the same yummy MME stack from all week. Maybe I’ll eventually use it up! And why is it I can never tell that my brads are misaligned til the photo gets taken? Agh. Fortunately I can go redo it before putting it in the OWH box

Have a hopping great day!Read More
Thanks to those who’ve been cheering me on in feeling better. Back to the office for a full day today, and hoping that’s not a bad move
This lil guy makes me wanna play aiiiiirrrrrr guitarrrrrrrr!!!! And yes, I do that a lot…especially in my new room. I love standing to craft so I can dance while I do!
Paper pad’s the same one from MME as the last couple days – lol – I’ll still be working on one pad for like a month, I think….ha! But I love this tone-on-tone background pattern…it makes the SRM sticker just pop, without even a layer!
More paper from MME – same stack as the last 2 days, I’m loving it! I still can’t seem to do the 6×6 tutorial but I’m keeping at it trying to get a pad used up for once
REMINDER! The Memorial Day Bloghop is only 10 days away – and we only just now hit 50 blogs! Yikes. We should be at least at 100 by now. GO FORTH AND SHARE!Read More
My daffies never came up this year….I think they’re kaput! But….instead I colored Daffodil Charlotte for this card; she’s from Sparkle Creations! My fellow stampers all have a different character from Sparkle that they love – I really like Charlotte a lot – she’s sweet! Just for OWHers who love spring cards…you can use daffodils, just don’t make the cards say “Happy Spring!” on them. It might only be starting spring where you live, but we’re getting a ton of late spring cards that have to wait til next year; our heroes are ready for summer
The card’s a pretty simple design with some MME paper (who’d a thunk it! I think I am just in love with everything they make!)…an SRM sticker for the sentiment, and a little bling that my friend Kelly gifted to me!Read More
