Trick or Treat

This has to be one of the quickest cards I have ever made. I think it took 20 minutes. That is a new record. My motivation with this card was the ghost sticker in the middle. I found these cute stickerrs at michaels, and they are made by recollections. I'm not sure if I love this card, but I do love the image. I bought 4 of these with the intentions to challenge a few of my card making friends. So, startrt watching your mailbox.
Supplies: Imagincese paper, SU cardstock
ink: white pen, and thin black pen
Sticker: Recollections
Misc: SU cornor punch, SU scallop punch

Warm Winter Wishes

Here is a card I made using Whiff Of Joy stamps. I received this image for a secret image challenge. I must admit, when I first received the image I didn't love it. Once I sat to make the card, and I started to color it, I was loving it. I think It is a super cute image, and I was not familiar with the company until I received the image. You should check them out, they have some really cute stamps.
So, I am not good at keeping a card simple. The upper right hand of this card looks empty to me , but I'm afraid to put anything and ruin it. What do you think? Any suggestions?

Paper: ? Card stock is SU cranberry and olive
Stamps: Whiff of joy, and sentiments by Pink cat studios.
Ink: memento black, and copic markers
Accessories: Bling, and silver stickles.

1. I have known my husband since 7th grade. We dated on and off through high school, but didn't end up serious until 2 years after High school. We now have been married 9 years, and 2 kids later.

2. I am a HUGE Diet coke fan. Not just any Diet coke, but a fountain diet coke. Chik-fil-A and MCD's have the best.

3. My favorite food is Ice Cream. I love Mint Choc Chip with choc sprinkles. I would eat Ice cream all day if I could.

4. I Love animals. If I could I would have a ton. I have a soft spot for dogs, particularly small ones. I have 2 Shih Tzus. Princess is 11 and Remy is about 6 months. They are my Fur babies.

5. I am completely a Daddy's girl. I always have been and always will be.

6. I have one brother, and no biological sisters. I have some great friends that I would consider my sisters.

7. I have 2 gorgeous children (I can say that because I'm their mother). Ryan is 5 and is a pint of peanuts with a personality as big as they come. Abbey is 7 and is completely me. I am not sure if that is good or bad, but she is a amazing little girl.

So, here is somethings about me. I am not going to tag anyone else, since it looks like you all have been tagged before. Have a great day.

Bloggers Challenge #66: Warhol cards

It's Friday and you know what that means, another Bloggers challenge. This weeks challenge was to make a Warhol card. I must admit that before now, I have never heard of Warhol cards. So, where do I go when I need card inspiration? SPLITCOAST of course. So, I looked through every card, and whose cards inspired me the most? Lisa Somerville........She is the queen of Warhol. So, this is a take on one of her cards, which you can view here. Thank you Lisa for the opportunity to give this challenge a try. I would never had made on of these cards if it wasn't for the challenge.
To see more great Warhol cards click on the Bloggers group banner. Have a great Friday.

Happy Day

Happy Day!!!!!!!
Isn't this the cutest stamp? It is another cute Whipper Snapper stamp. If you're not familiar with their stamps, you should check them out here. My good friend Kerry is a huge fan of Whipper Snapper stamps, and was nice enough to let me play with her stamps. It's always nice when you have friends with the same hobby, then you can share (right Kerry).
Anyway, I saw a card Kerry made on my blog, and I just had to make a card using this stamp. I am not sure who the card is going to be for, but I like how it turned out. So, Happy Wednesday. The weekend is "almost" here.

Sisterhood of the blogging stampers Group 25

I just decided to join Sisterhood of the Blogging stampers. It is a great place to meet and play with other people who stamp and blog. As many of you know, I am fairly new to this blogging business, but I am quickly becoming a blogging junkie. I am thrilled to meet all of my sister in group 25. If you are not familiar with the sisterhood of the blogging stampers, you should click here and check it out.
When you join the group your first post is supposed to be a introduction to your sisters. So, here it is.
I live in New Hampshire with My husband Paul, my daughter Abbey(7), my son Ryan(5), and my two Shih Tzus Princess and Remy. I work part time as a Asst manager at Gymboree. I am attend the local college in pursuit of a nursing degree, and I stamp with all my free time. I lead a crazy life, but I always find time to stamp.
I first started out as a scrapbooker, and then I attended my first Stampin Up party 2 years later. I have been hooked since. My passion is paper. I LOVE pattern paper. If I could, I would wallpaper my house with pp. I am a women of many stamps, and I love many different companies. As you will see from my blog, I am more of a cutesy stamper. I love animal images and I love to color. I guess it's kinda like being a kid again. I can't wait to visit my sisters blogs, and I look forward to playing with you.

Holy Scraps !

Scraps, Scraps....... everywhere. If your anything like myself, you have paper everywhere. I am a huge pattern paper addict. I often (almost always) make my card around whatever paper I want to use. I often only use 1/2 a sheet (if that) on one card, and I then end up leaving a bunch of paper for later (yeah, right). So, lately I have been trying to use up all my paper and get at least 3 cards out of one sheet of 12x12 paper. Sometimes it takes me 2-3 hours to make 1 card. The 1st card is always the hardest, and then the next 2 or 3 are easy. Coming up with the design is the hardest part for me. Are all three cards exactly "my best" cards? No there not, but I they're great cards to have on hand when you need a quick b-day card or something.
The way prices are these days, I need to be putting all my extras to use. Also, I don;t feel so bad when I want to buy more paper (hehehe). So, next time your making a card and you have extra paper, go ahead and use up those scraps and make another quick card or 2.
Stamps: Pink cat studio
paper: Pattern paper ?, SU cardstock
Ink: Memento black, Watercolor crayons, Copic markers on one of the cards
Misc: circle punch, SU scallop punch, Cuttlebug embossing folders

This card was inspired by Jeannie Streiff from Lizzie Anne designs. Which recently has become one of my favorite companies. Well, Here is to my 1st bloggers challenge. I am looking forward to playing some more. Have a great Friday.

I was browsing around some blogs and I came across a post about Starving Artistamps. I have heard of them, but have never "really" looked at them. They are so cute, and now they are releasing their New Halloween stamps. So Cute. They are giving away some of their new stamp sets. All you have to do is leave a message on their blog and spread the word. Now, go on over to their blog and leave a comments for some blog candy and let me know what you think. I think I may have to make a purchase (that's a shocker).
