Three Clover Thursday challenge: x-mas in July

Happy Thursday!!!!! The weekend is only a short time away. We are supposed to be rained out on Sat, but a great weather day on Sunday. We are hoping to do some boating with my parents, so I am keeping my fingers crossed for great weather.

Today's challenge is Christmas in July. Well, I love to make Christmas cards, but I have to admit that I really struggled making this card. I had gone to the beach for the day, came home with a pretty good sun burn, and I just wasn't feeling the whole Christmas theme. I actually sat in my craft room at 8:30, but didn't make a card until 11:30. I could;t decided what paper I wanted to use, I couldn't find the stamp I wanted to use (due to the complete mess on my desk), so finally I decided to go simple. Not my best card, but it is Christmas in July! Right?

So, speaking of messes, I thought I would be brave and share a quick pic of my absolutely mess of a desk. Get ready to be scared:

Good grief, I have to spend some time and get that space cleaned up.

So, are you feeling a little like Christmas? The challenge team over at 3 Clovers would love for you to join us, and we can't wait to see what you come up with. So, if you get a chance, come play along. Happy Thursday and Happy creating!

It's a Turtle kind of Monday

Happy Monday all! Did you have a good Easter? We had a very nice weekend. We went to dinner with my Mom, Dad, Brother and Sister-in-law Sat night for my Birthday (it seems like it was a week long celebration). My Mom and Dad got me tickets to the Red Sox (really hard to get), and my Brother and his wife gave me GC to one of my LSS. It was a really nice dinner. Then yesterday my parents came up and I cooked a New England Boiled dinner (YUM), and then my in-laws came up for dessert. My hubby and kids were exhausted, so they went to bed, and I went to my crafty place, and here is what I made.

I have to say, for such a simple card, it took me forever to color the turtle. I must have spent 1 hour just coloring the image. Did I mention that I really like to color. Of course I couldn't just color the image, I had to color, cut and pop dot the shell. I feel like I pop dot everything. I don't know, maybe I feel like it gives it a little something. What do you think. Do you pop dot everything?

Well, I am off to school and I am hoping to have many cards done this week. I am shooting for a card a day. No test this week (amazing), so I am hoping to get crafty!

Have a fabulous Monday!

Stamp: Whipper Snapper
INK: Copics, and memento black
paper: SU cardstock
misc: punches,brads, and cuttlebug embossing folder.

Michelle, This card is coming your way!

Monday Lunchtime Sketch Challenge #59

You know what they say about March, "In like a Lion and out like a Lamb". So far that is proving true. We got a whopping 14 inches of snow today. School got cancelled for both the kids and I (yeah). Although I am happy that to have a School free day, I am truly sick of the snow. We have had SO much snow this year. I am ready to start seeing those tree buds and the grass.

So, what did I do with my day? I cleaned the house and my scrap space (I will share photos tomorrow), played with the kids, and made a card.

My card today was made for Mary Jo's Monday sketch Challenge #59. I had colored this bunny stamp yesterday during the Copic certification class I took with Sally Lynn MacDonald. So yep, I am Certified. Certifiably crazy, I ended up buying more Copics during the class (don't tell my hubby), and now I feel like I NEED the air brush system (approx $300.00). Do any of you have this, any version of it, and if so, do you love it. Would you buy it again? Do I need it? I really, really liked playing with it.

Well, I am off to do some studying. I hope you all had a MAGNIFICENT Monday!

Materials: Stamps-Whipper Snapper bunny, SUINK sentiment. Paper: Making Memories, SU cardstock. Ink: Copics, Memento black. Misc: cuttlebug folders, pop dots, punches, Kaiser pearls.

Pretty much it is brown and blue. These are not my favorite colors, but I just proved to myself that I can do it.

So, now it's your turn. Make a card for the challenge and then head over to Kerry's blog and log in. Check out what the rest of the team did. They are a great group of ladies.

Best Friends

Good Morning. I hope you're having a SUPER Sunday. It has been kind of a quiet weekend for me, and I must admit I am enjoying every minute of this relaxing weekend. I got a chance to sit down and play with one of my new Whipper Snapper stamps. I just think these little girls are so cute.

I combined my new stamp with some Basic Grey paper (which can be purchased at Limelight Papercrafts, they are having a sale). I think it's a cutesy kind of card. well, I am hoping to get some homework done, and get some more card made. I am wishing you a quite creative day. Smiles!!!!

Bloggers Challenge #84 Birthday

Well, after a long week, it is FINALLY FRIDAY! You know what Fridays mean, Bloggers challenge. This weeks challenge was rather simple, a Birthday card. YOu can never have enough Birthday cards. I have to admit, after a really busy week, with the kids, work, and 2 test, I wasn't sure I was going to be able play. It wasn't until I got home from work last night (10pm), that I decided I was finally going to sit and make a card today. So, I finished my card at approx 1 am this morning, but I at least I got to play.

I don't know about you, but there isn't enough time in the day for me to get things done. As much as I LOVE to sleep, I kinda wish that my body didn't require it. Life would be so much easier if I could have those extra 6-8 hours in the middle of the night when everyone else is sleeping. Well, wishful thinking. I am a person who definatly needs at least 7 hours of sleep a night, or I turn into a pumpkin. So, maybe in a different life.

Sorry about the rambling here, on my card I used one of my WHipper Snapper stamps, and the cupcake Basic Grey 6x6 DP. I wanted frosting to look realistic, so I used liquard pearls and moved it around until I thought It was similar looking to real frosting (what do you think)?

Have a FABULOUS Friday!

Monday Lunchtime Sketch Challenge #53

I hope you all are having a Terrific Tuesday. Today's card was inspired by Mary Jo's Monday Lunchtime Sketch Challenge. As simple as this card is, it proved to be a difficult sketch for me, because I don't have any heart punches or such (see, you never have enough). So I had to improvise and start tracing things. I also was working with the new Bittersweet 6x6 paper pack and had limited papers left (that I wanted to use), so I ran into not enough paper (good Grief). Anyways, I happily used one of my new Whipper Snapper stamps, which I think is so cute.

I have decided that this card is manly enough to give to my hubby for V-day, also, it's not one of my favorites, so I don;t mind giving it up (hehehe).

Well, I have 2 exams this week, so I am off to study, and I will be back to post A whachadoin Wednesday challenge tomorrow. Stay tuned.

For all of you that would love to participate in this Weeks challenge, head over to Maryjo's blog and read the details. Lots of fun. Keep warm.

Whipper Snapper contest

I am so excited, and I have to share. As many of you know, I am a Whipper Snapper junkie. I love there images and I have such a great time coloring them. Well, a while back, my BFF Kerry told me about a contest Whipper snapper was holding. The theme was Holiday or winter. The Prize 1st was $100 Free product, 2nd $50.00 Free product and 3rd was $25.00 Free product, and then they will give you $10.00 for every card they keep for publication.
So, I thought "I may as well give it a try, I can always use FREE product". Well, I made 5 cards. The due date was Dec 15th, and on Friday the 12th, I was really busy and decided that I wouldn't bother mailing them in. I figured at the most I might get $20.00. Well, when I was talking to Kerry at 4:30 that evening, I told her that I wasn't going to bother sending in the cards, and that I really didn't have the time to get them together. Well, she said "are you kinding me!!!". She was right (per ususal), after all the time I spent making them, I should send them in. So, off to the post office I went, and I stood in line for 1/2 hour (no lie), and shipped them next day.
Well, are you ready????? Come to find out, my card won 2nd place. OMG...$50.00 FREE product, but when I continued to read the e-mail, they accepted all 5 cards....OMG....$90.00 FREE product. I still can't believe it.
I have posted my winning card here, but you can view the other winners here

So, if you love Whipper Snapper as much as I do, continue to check out there website for future contests, you never know until you try.

Thanks Kerry for always encouraging me with my creativity. You are a good friend. Luv ya!

Have snow will shovel

OMGoodness.....What a week it has been. First Thanksgiving, and then Black Friday (I work in retail), and then the Thanksgiving weekend in retail, I am exhausted!!! I know face the last 2 weeks of the semester, and I have to say, I can't wait till it's over.
So, in the midst of all that went on last week, I decided I needed some time to sit and have some coloring therapy. My friend Pia stamped me some of her new Whipper Snapper images and I decided to give them a try. I must admit that this card took me a long time to color. My good friend Kerry told me to start blending my colors, and that is what I did here. You probably can't tell, but I used a few different colors to make the colors that I arrived at. After approx 1 hour of coloring, I decided that I really like how this card turned out. What do you think?

Well, Happy Cyber Monday, and I am hoping to get another card done tonight for tomorrow.

Sweet Penguin

Oh what a lovely Saturday it is. My first off in weeks. I woke up walked the dogs, feed the kids and laid on the couch for 1 1/2. It was so nice. Hubby came home from work, and I went to my happy place and finished this penguin card. I think this penguin is so sweet. What do you think. I hope you all have a sensational Saturday and weekend!

Snow pals

Happy Wednesday....The week is half over. Here is my card for today, and of course another Whipper snapper (oohh I love whipper Snapper). This is actually a image that KDC stamped for me. It's wonderful having friends that are as passionate as you are about the same hobby,(and have just as many shopping issues as yourself). Except when they say "mine, mine, all mine". Yeah, you know who you are (hehehe). It great that we can share stamps, tools, paper and shopping trips. Do you have a group of ladies that you "play" with?
So, I am babysitting 2 children plus my own, I am trying to write a paper, and I have to work tonight, SO...I am hoping to have a card for you tomorrow, if not Definitely Friday. Have a great day.

p.s. Check out my blog on Friday for my first Blog candy. You won't be disappointed. I am celebrating my (almost )1000 hits on my blog, and I have a shipment of ????? coming in. Wait and see.....

Snow cute

Phewwww...unfortuantely it has been a few days since I have been able to make a card. I am in my last few weeks of the semester and the pressure is on. Papers, tests, homework, and soon to be finals. Dosen't it sound fun? NOT!
Anyways, I pushed the hoemwork aside for a little while and My husband entertained the kids for a few minutes, so I sat down with a Diet Coke, turned on the radio and broke out my stamps and markers. It's so nice just to sit and think of nothing except for coloring. I know as the weeks go on and holidays and finals get closer, these few minutes to myself will get scarce, so I enjoyed my time while I could. I made 2 cards. The one I am posting now, and another that is currently drying and I will post tomorrow. So, here's my snowman, and I will post tomorrow. Happy Veterans Day.

Let The Flakes Fly

Happy Thursday......and yes, it is a Happy Thursday.... I got the results from my Chemisrty test, and all my studying and the 3 hours it took me to take the test payed off.....I GOT a B.....I was thrilled. The test was REALLY hard, so I will take a B.
So, here is card 4 of 11, and yep, it is another Whipper Snapper image. I thought the snomen were so cute together. I decided to match the to the paper, as I all most always work my card around whatever paper I want to use.
Well, I have no homework tonight, so I am hoping to make another card or two. Have a great day, and check back tomorrow for my Bogger's challenge card.

"Just want to say HI"

Happy Wednesday...... It is happy for me, because my Chemistry midterm is over. It was a 3 hour test...Arrrrggghhhh.....

On a happy note, here is card # 3 out of 14. This is one of my new Whipper Snapper stamps (I love their stamps). I think this mouse is great for all occassions. I borrowed the saying from Mary C, and I can't recall who makes it. Maybe Mary will leave a comment and let us know.
I hope you all have a good night, and check back tomorrow for card #4.

Merry Wishes

Ho...Ho...Ho....Ho....Meet my new Santa. I just purchased him from Whipper Snapper. I think he's cute and he is a lot of fun to color.

This card was my original Bloggers challenge #69 card, which was a color challenge: real rust, riding hood red, and old olive). When I was done, I realized I had not used Rust anywhere (ooops...), so this didn;t qualify. As my daughter would say "no worries". It was a really cute and easy card to make. If you want to see the color challenge scroll down. That card was not as easy or fun, but it's done (hehehe).

It's hard to belive that Christmas is in 2 months (yikes). I am hoping to make a few more cards with this stamp so you may be seeing hom some more. Have a great weekend!

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.

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.
