One more from Under the Big Top

Okay, so let me just put this out there. I DID NOT DESIGN THIS CARD. Those amazing a|muse studio designers came up with this brillant idea and I totally CASED it...

I mean who wouldn't want one of these cards in their stash??? SO CUTE!!! I had to change it up a bit to make it mine (like using textured paper for one of the balloons & then using an embossing folder on another one) but it's pretty much the same as the sample. I had to make two just in case I wanted to hoard one of the cards for myself. LOL

Card deets: 

  • Stamps: Under the Big Top from a|muse studio
  • Paper: Chevron & little dot DP paper from a|muse, white, yellow, red & cool carribean
  • Inks: Black Momento & Copic markers
  • Misc: Bakers Twine & Circle Nesties

I have several more cards to share over the next couple of days. Hope you will continue to drop in!

Thanks for stopping by!


Under the Big Top

This card is, that's for sure!!

 Doesn't that card make you smile? I love that guy! 

Speaking of "that" guy...did you know he is on sale this month? Yep, and he has a couple of friends on sale too, see...

Who doesn't love a deal? Right? Right! You have until May 31st to get your order in and guess what? For a faster shopping experience you can order these FAB sets, right HERE. How nice & shameless of me, huh? I know. 

Card deets:

Until tomorrow...


Playing with her Mama...

She loved Molly to pieces. She would clean her ears, her eyes and ohhhh did she love to snuggle with her. She also had fun playing with her. See...

Doesn't it look like she is giving her a big kiss? :)

It's been 47 days since we lost her. It's getting easier to talk about her but there are still those days when I cry and cry and cry some more. I don't know if it was because she was a puppy, if it was because my Sister & I went on this crazy journey together and each bought sister bassets or if it was because she was mine/ours. I don't know. All I know is she left a huge hole in our hearts & our home. I wish she was here now. I do. 

Sorry for the sad post. Sometimes it helps to talk/share these things...

Thanks for stopping by!


Twinkle, twinkle, little star...

I couldn't get enough of the little gnomes from Poppy Stamps the other day so I went ahead & made a card with this little cutie...


Doesn't this card scream Spring?

I know it feels like summer as of late (at least here in AZ it feels like that) but technically it is still considered spring, right? Or is it post spring, pre summer? Or "it's too early for it to be this hot!" LOL

Anywho, here are the deets for the above card...

Card Deets: 

  • Stamps: Little gnome is from Poppy Stamps
  • Paper: White, Soft Sky & Neapolitan by Dear Lizzy
  • Inks: Black & Copic Markers
  • Misc: MFT ric rac die, Small scallop Nestie, Ribbon & Stickles

Hope you have been enjoying my cards lately. It feels good to be back in the saddle again!

Thanks for stopping by!



I need an entire stack of these cards...

I am not ashamed to admit that I am LATE with EVERY holiday, birthday, special day that there is. The way I figure it, it is the price everyone needs to pay if they want a hand stamped card from me. Bam, there it is, I said it. You want it, you wait for it. LOL

I don't have a cush job and spare time oozing from every which way. It's called life & I am living it. Take it or leave it. It doesn't mean that I am not thinking of you or that you aren't special to me or that I don't love you, there is only ONE of me and darn it, as much as I try, I can only stretch myself so far. 

That being said, here is the card I desperately need to make multiples of...

It's true, huh? I know. I know and I AM OKAY WITH IT!! LOL

Card deets:

  • Stamps: Past Due from amuse
  • Paper: White, Tangerine Tango, Soft Sky, Kraft
  • Inks: Brown & Soft Sky
  • Misc: QK dies & metal clip 

Hope you enjoyed my card, thanks for stopping by!!!!


More, more, more...

I want more...more time to STAMP!! I feel the fever, I do, I do!! LOL

Here's another little ditty from this weekend...
