January 2013

It's been so long...

since I posted a pic of my Wittle Little Abby. Want to see her? Too bad, I am going to show you anyway. LOL

She's on the move...



Got the ball...FINALLY!!! Run, Abby, RUNNNNNNNN!!!


Taking a little breather with her girl Libby!

The cute little coat is made by Martha Stewart & is from Petsmart (just in case you wanted to know). 

I truly have the best dogs!! Sigh... Dreamyeyesf

Alrighty then, I am not guaranteeing a post tomorrow (too much to do) but will do my best to be back on SUNDAY!!

Thanks for stopping by! 


2012 Christmas Cards, Part 3

BAM! 4 days people! 4 days in a ROW!! 

Here is a fun little ditty I made with Sprinkle from The Cat's Pajamas...

There is actually a story about this card. I was commissioned to make a card with a cat, dog, etc for Christmas BUT the animal had to be SMOKING!! So, I hate to say this...but...the 2nd card I made like this had a SMOKING SPRINKLE on it. It was hysterical. I was cracking myself up. And the lady I made it for? LOVED IT! 


Card Deets:

  • Stamps: Kitty Christmas from The Cat's Pajamas
  • Paper: Red, White & dp from American Crafts "Christmas" stack
  • Inks: Momento Black & Copics
  • Misc: Ho Ho Ho from Recollections, sparkly brad & stickles

Thankfully Sprinkle has given up that nasty habit! And Alma, if you are looking at this...please note that I DID NOT color Sprinkles eyes!! LOL

Well there you have it...enjoy!

Challenge chicks
and make a snowman card. Haven't heard of them? You should check them out on Facebook

Here's my card...

I should have cleaned my house today, especially since my guests left today but I just couldn't bring 

myself to push around a vacuum. Guess I am going to have to pull a rabbit out of a hat this week & get 

it done sometime. Oh well, there's always tomorrow. LOL


Alrighty then, I better get going. Thanks for stopping by!


It's a New Year, Happy 2013!!

I was terrible in 2012 about sharing my cards, posting, etc. I would like to say that in 2013 I am going to put forth more of an effort but I can't gaurantee that. You know how life is. It's just better to take things one day at a time & hope for the best in all things. At least that's what I think. (wink, wink)

Anywho, the card above was one of my Christmas cards from 2012. I made a ton and sent out less than 10. Dumb, I know. I am not the best at time management or follow through. Okay, I take that back, on certain things I am not good at follow through, other things? I am freakin' AMAZING at follow through!! LOL 

Card deets: 

  • Stamps: all stamps are from a*muse studio
  • Paper: Kraft, White & Red
  • Inks: Black, White & Copic Markers
  • Misc: Snowflake die from The Cat's Pajamas, scallop die from QK, ribbon, puff paint, glitter pen


I think that's it for now. Peace out!
