Is it Wednesday already???

This week is going by way too fast for me.  The weather is going to be beautiful the rest of the week.  I might have to get some outdoor chores done.

Today I'm sharing another Saturated Canary image, this one is called "Hand Me Downs", isn't she just the cutest?!?

I'm trying really hard to work on the insides of my cards too.  Simple but cute.

Here's a little closer image.  I've colored her with my Prisma's.  I really love the monochromatic look and tried to keep these pink and reds close to each other's hues.

Hope you enjoy!

House Mouse Valentine

Good Morning
Today I'm sharing a House Mouse valentine card I made for a friend for a recipe swap on Papercraft Planet.  I only have a couple House Mouse stamps and this is the first image I've colored but it's just so darned cute!

We found a wonderful recipe since moving to the south called Chess Squares.  I'll share the recipe with you and maybe you'll fall in love with it too.  It's very rich so a little bite goes a l-o-n-g way!

Chess Squares

1 box yellow cake mix
1 egg
1 stick melted buttere
*mix and spread in 9X13 pan*

1 8oz. pkg. cream cheese
3 eggs; beaten
1 box powdered sugar
*pour cheese mixture over cake mixture, you could add crushed almonds if you like too*

Bake at 325 degrees for 45 minutes
Cool slightly and cut into squares - Enjoy!

Pickles and Icecream?!?!?

Yep, that's right Pickles and Icecream.  I found the cutest image from Saturated Canary.  These images may not be new to you but they are to me and I'm totally loving them.  There is so much character in each design.  I totally fell in love when I found Pickles and IceCream.  I have a girlfriend that is expecting and it's been a bit of a challenge for her to get there so I thought this would make a great happy card for her.

I wanted this card to be happy so I stamped "Remember" on the outside and wrote
" Feeling Fat lasts
9 months
But the Joy of
Becoming a Mom
Lasts Forever!"
Thank you for taking time to stop by and leave me some love.  I've been away for several months and I can sure tell it by the lack of my blogging friends stopping over.  I guess I better get busy!

A Happy New Year

Hello ladies and gents!

I'm trying really hard to get back into my scraproom.......literally.  During the last 6 months or so everything has been piled up in there.  I am in serious need of some cleaning out and rearranging..  So until then I'm just gonna do the best I can with what I can reach or find! LOL

This image was a freebie from my friends over at Paper Craft Planet in the All Things Vintage group.  You should go check it out and try out some of the challenges too.  They're alot of fun. I decided to distress and ink the edges of the postcard and back it.  Then after I added some ribbon and a flower I went back and added some glitter to the branches.  It's very simple but pretty.  Thanks for stopping by.

Best Wishes

Best Wishes

It's a busy day here so I just have a quick post.  Again, my apologies for the poor picture quality.  I'll hopefully have that fixed this week.  Here's a sweet image I've had colored up for awhile and finally put to paper.  Usually I choose my papers first but I went through a period where I did a bunch of coloring and have the images all ready to put together.  I hope your having a fabulous week so far!

Have a great day!

Mummy's Coming For You! LOL

Good Morning!

Most of us are back to work and it's no different for us stay at home mom's!  Time to clean up from the weekend of fun and get back to the farm chores.  My girls gave me five eggs this morning - Yay!  The Americana gave me a HUGE blue one.  Seriously, it's like twice as big as the others.  Probably a double yoker.  We're saving up for the coming weekend.  Our wonderful friends are coming to play for the whole weekend.  Lots of laughs and tons of good food.  Always a blast when we're together!

(My apologies for the poor quality picture)
Today I have a card I lovingly call "Mummy's Coming For You" - LOL  The image is from Just Inklined, I got it last year and have colored it lots of times.  It's such a fun one.  I got a package of sample halloween paper last year and have used it here.  The pin on the flower came from a package I received from my Secret Pal.  The flower is another one I've made from the miscellaneous box of leftovers.  The top of it is a green felt flower.  Ribbon again is from Really Reasonable Ribbon.  If you haven't checked out their monthly ribbon kit you really should.  It's wonderful. 

Thanks for stoppin by and I'll see ya'll tomorrow!

Rick St. Davis

It's Saturday and I have a special image from an artist that is new to me.  I'm guessing it's new to many of you too since I haven't seen many of these in blogland.  This is "Hedwig Halloween Digi".  I thought she was perfect for a vintage halloween card to a friend across the miles.  Rick St. Dennis has MANY more images just as fabulous.  I also have a disturbed looking clown and another fantastic feline to color up next.  I colored her with my prisma's to match my double sided paper which I used for the background and then flipped it for the backing on the image and the strip behind the image that I cut a border on, which I noticed you can't really see - oopsy.  I'm bad about the manufacturers name of the paper, but if someone really wants to know I'll check it out.  I added some Kaiser rub-ons and embellished them with some E. gems.  Added some ribbon and distressed everything with Tim Holtz Fire brick.  I hope you enjoy it!

That's it for today.  Got lots more work ahead of me!
I've been really enjoying catching up with all my blogland friends.  Again, if anyone knows of a headless horseman image please leave the link.

Hugs to all!
