Hello Friends, Just wanted to drop a quick line to let you all know that I am still around. I have been super busy and just couldnt find the time to get a post out to you guys. So, I have finished a few projects lately, Just doing some playing around. 
So, this first card is one that I created and really, just playing around. I had purchased a roll of 10 yards of 2mm. bling, Oh how I love Bling. I just wanted to use it on something so on the sentiment is where I chose to place it. It just adds a little bit of something to an otherwise flat card. 
For this next photo, I have been really having some fun creating chunky charms. This is one of my first charms and I really had fun creating it. 

This next creation is a tag that I created for a swap that I was in. Now, I love love love these Prima doll stamps, The possibilities are endless as far as dressing them. If I am ever bored or cant quiet find the creativity in me, then I color and dress a Prima doll. That gets the ball rollin,Funny, isn't it? 

And now for my final creation, I actually went off of a passed sketch from a sketch blog online and I LOVE how this one turned out. I actually used a chip board letter of which I have never used in my cards. I am trying to find new things to use in my "old" stash. Does that make sense? I have SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO many supplies and embellishments that I don't even know what I have. Really, Sometimes it is a little overwhelming. I just cant control myself when it come to paper crafting supplies, or beading or mixed media. Oh boy, oh my! ☺
So, those are a few of the things that I have been up to. I have a few more things to share with you all, One being a contest that I won with Tombow while at CHA back in January. So much fun! 
OK, it's off to bed for me but I will return real soon my friends!!

Mojo Monday on a Friday Night

Happy Friday Friends, This week went by really fast and I am so glad it did. I have a craft fair to get ready for and it seems like during the week, I cant get the time in to get organized . So, I have about 200 Christmas cards that I want to complete and other misc. Christmas items, Like Reindeer food and little goodies like that.
So, onto the card sketch, This one is from Mojo Monday and what a fun one it was. I just got this cool DSP and was wanting to put something together with it. It is MME "Breeze"  Pretty, huh?  What you see  below is I sprayed the yellow flag panel with radiant pearls for a little bit of shimmer.

The sentiment is one of which I have in my stash. I heat embossed in black. You cant really see the shininess of it but it added some shiny to the creation.
So, I am off to work on some Christmas stuff but I will return very soon! Have a great weekend all!

The Sweet Stop...

Hello all. Well it is Sunday evening and it is time for this weekend to wind down. Why can't we have 2 day work weeks and 5 day weekends? Boy, wouldn't this world be a much happier place to live? I would even work 15 hrs each of those 2 days. Really, I would! 
Anyways, I have another creation to share with you all. I created this one off of the above sketch from The sweet stop. What a fun sketch and what a fun card this one turned out to be? I think this is my new favorite stamp set from Stampin Up! "Gorgeous Grunge" is the name of it and it is so so much fun!!  All of the supplies that I used on this creation are from Stampin Up! The sentiment is from an old SU! set "Best Yet"
This creation is 5 1/2 X 4 1/4.Aren't the new "In colors great"? I used Strawberry slush and coastal cabana on this along with going grey,basic black and white.
So, there you have it. What do you think? I would love to hear your comments!!
I will be back sometime this week so, everyone, Have a great Monday!!
