Another soggy Monday here in Kentucky. Sympathy cards are something I really struggle with and unfortunately they are needed today. I decided to use these shabby light colors and will be making another sympathy card today using the same papers.

Teddy Bea


Today is another Teddy Bo card. Well this is actually a Teddy Bea with a cute little friend. I colored this image last week and forgot about it until flipping through papers and discovered it tucked in with them. lol Do you ever do that? Totally addicted to these sweet images and there are several new ones. I even bought one that is a clown and I've never bought a clown image EVER!!! Hit the flowers with Stardust Stickles - love the sparkle it gives.
Have a Super Sunday!

New Everything!!!


Hope your weekend is off to a great start!
Today I'm showing you a card with new images/papers. This Hanglar girl has a new hairstyle that is very cute. The oval with hand is glued down and can be used with lots of Hanglars and maybe Magnolias. My new Kaisercraft Gypsy paper is so vivid and I'm really loving turquoise right now (reminds me of my grandmother). The panel with the image actually lifts up and the note is inside. Entering this for the Lovely Hanglar Only challenge to use 2 images. The girl and oval count as 2 - yea!
Hope you enjoy the card and have a great day!

This week on Flutterby Wednesday it's all about rainbows. Two yrs. ago while on a cruise with my daughter, we saw a stunning rainbow in the Bahamas. Right smack in the middle of beautiful waters of blues/greens was a rainbow - took our breath away.
I didn't have any rainbow paper, but did find this paper which works ok. I decided to go grab flowers with most of the colors.

Happy Heart Day!!!!!!!!!

I hope you are having a wonderful day. If you visit my blog regularly, it's pretty obvious that I LOVE hearts. Today I'm going to share a few heart items with you.

Oops - my picture is sideways, but this is where I put my sweet little Sawyer's treats.

CUTE dish towels from Kohls. :)

This is my new Starbucks coffee cup!!! Can't wait to have some decaf in the morning. Who knows I might just put some water in it tonight. ;)

This flatware was a major score a few yrs. ago at Target. They were clearance from the $1 section - 25 cents for a place setting people!!!!!!!!! So 8 place settings for $2. WOW was all I could say. ;)

Thanks for stopping by!! Happy Valentine's Day!

Love Rocks

Today I'm showing the Valentine's day card that I'm giving to my son. He LOVES music (wonder where he gets that). I bought this set because a lot of times I'll give him iTunes gift cards, cds, or gift certificates to his favorite video store. Not a set normally that would end up in my home, but I do love it and it really makes a great presentation for gifts. If you click on the picture, you might see that I covered the guitar with Spica clear glitter pen - so sparkly. I'm staying home today because my shoulders are a little sore from yesterday's exciting events.
Stamps - Inkadinkado clear stamp set
Papers - Basic Grey pp and SU cs
Ink - Memento and Copics
Misc. - bling and Spica clear glitter pen

Flutterby - Hearts


This card has been the only bright spot in my day. It is 10 degrees here - snow/slush/ice. This morning was running around trying to get some things done before it really started. I was almost home free...pulling into my subdivision and then SLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLIDE!!! ugh I can't see any damage but I'm sure my husband will find something that I might have missed. So to calm myself down, started working on this card. The Flutterby Wednesday challenge is to use 3 hearts and I'm pretty sure that I met that challenge. ;)
Stamps - Hanglar girl and Printworks sentiment
Paper - Kaisercraft Made with Love (SO CUTE) and PTI

I'm participating in a tea card swap and trying out a few styles. The girls having tea is such a sweet image and LOVING these papers. I rarely use blues but this is fabulous paper. The sentiment was stamped on a tag from the paper pad.

Teddy Bea Bear Hugs


Today I decided to give Teddy Bea a little love. While thinking about this card, my initial plan was to have her sit on the word hugs, but it covered up the word too much. Oh well...hope she isn't lost on the card because she is a tad smaller. Love that this card could be for Valentine's Day, someone going through a tough time, or even a birthday card!
I'm entering this into the Teddy Bo Challenge - PINK! This card was made and then a few hrs. later the challenge was posted. What luck!

Teddy Bo Love


Are you ready for some football? lol Game time is about an hour away. Since my team isn't in it, I'll root for the Green Bay Packers. After all, that's where my son was born. It only seems right. ;)
I can't put these Teddy Bo images down. Serious love going on around here for them. This is going to my sister who is a big Starbucks drinker. These colors are close to the Starbucks Bearista bear that is available right now. The hearts are covered with Spica clear glitter pen, but it's tough to catch in the picture.

I like you Beary Much


How adorable is this image! Another Teddy Bo image that I just couldn't pass up because of the hearts don't 'ya know. You can use this guy all year and this particular card is going to a very special 2 yr. old who has entered my life and with any luck will be in my life permanently (no I'm not adopting).
Sorry for the picture quality. It's pooring buckets here, but at least it isn't snow. Good thing I don't live in Chicago anymore - 24" expected there - ACK!
