Stamp TV Release Party Re-cap!

Hello friends,

Last night over at Stamp TV It was release time and I finally got to share

with everyone what I did with their newest stamp sets as a featured Guest Designer this month.

 Here are each one of the Fabulous Stamp Sets and a link for you on how

to purchase them for yourself!  I had such a great time working with my fellow guest designers-Judy and Karen.

The pair of you did FABULOUS, and it was so much fun working alongside you both behind the scenes these past few weeks.

I find you both so talented and funny, and am thrilled that we have become better friends!  Of course, none of this would

have been possible, without the guidance of Lee Murphy the Stamp TV Design Team Member.  You rock Lee!

Here we go…time for my cards!

The first set was designed by Beth Silaika.

 It’s called Fleur di lis.

 I really LOVE it!  So versatile with great patterns!


Next, we have Debbie Corbari with another fabulous Diva! Golf Diva.

Really happy with the way this came together!  So much fun to make!


Theresa Momber set coordinates well with her other Out West 2 stamp set!


This was the most challenging for me…but I wasn’t about to give up!

 Now we have Rupa Shevde with this beautiful set featuring tons of

vases and florals called Flowers Bloom.

LOVE this set!


Last but certainly not least, we have Melanie Muenchinger’s set called Lots of Letters 2.


The sky is the limit for this set! A must have in your stamp collection!

Hope you enjoyed seeing what I have been up to the past few days!

I have really enjoyed playing with these new sets!!

If you have any questions at all please just give me a shout out!

Here are all of the sets that I featured and you can find them Here!






Hope you find sometime to be creative…it’s good for the soul.

Stamp TV Challenge…


Hello Friends,

Today the card I have for you is for a Mix it Up Monday Challenge over at Stamp TV.

My friend Karen is hosting this week so I wanted to give her some moral support and join here,

plus I had these really cool paper clips on my desk and have bee dying to use them.  So when

I saw her challenge to use metal of some kind it was meant to be!

I also wanted to show you where my inspiration came from to make this card!

A dear friend of mine and oh so talented stamper sent me this wonderful

tag the other day and I put it in my studio right where I could see it

and admire it!


I told her I loved it when I saw it on her blog so she sent it to me!

She is such a dear sweet person and I am so glad our paths have crossed!

Here is a link to her Blog Card Therapy....she is a Genius at Mixed Media

go and check it out and leave her some love!

Now,  Here is a link over to Stamp TV so you can join the challenge there as well.


Few Card Details:

All stamps are from Stamp TV

Cardstock is from Fancypants.

Have a spectacular day!



Think Spring


Today’s card was going to be for Two challenges…but I missed the deadline for the Friday Mashup by minutes!

I hate when that happens!  Oh Well,  I will however be entering this over at Stamp TV where Sean is hosting

and asked us to Think Spring!

I used Chalk, Ink and Colored Pencils to make my card!

The BOW…I promise matches the card much better in person….this has happened before with this ribbon…don’t know

quite what the deal is with it! I even took the photo outside thinking that would help.  NOT!

The sentiment and the image is both from Gina K. Designs.

If you have any questions at all….give me a holler!

Have a great day!

Spotlighting at Stamp TV


Hello Friends,

Second post of the day! 🙂

Today I have a technique for you that is called Spotlighting.

Here is a wonderful video from Gina K over at Stamp TV that explains it perfectly!

It was so much fun…I can assure you I will be doing this technique again very soon!

I am also entering this in Stamp TV’s Guest Design Challenge.

The stamp set is from Gina K and is called A Little Something.

I got it from a dear friend of mine!  It has become one of my all time favorites!

The video pretty much explains it all, but if

you have any questions at all please give me a shout out!

Hope you have a wonderful weekend and find sometime to be creative!



Let’s Get Sketchy @ Just Us Girls

JUGS sketch

Vicki is hosting this week over at Just Us Girls and she has this Great sketch for us!

Screen Shot 2014-02-10 at 7.16.54 PM

Of course after I photographed my card and already mailed it to my

sister for her Birthday…I realized I had altered the sketch a tad!

Completely by accident!  You would think I couldn’t screw it up when

I am the one the designed the graphic based on Vicki’s sketch.

But…think again!  :/

Well, I think it’s darn close enough!

I just got my long and short panels reversed. LOL

I hope you come on over and join us this week!

Also,  I need to say a quick thank you to our Guest Designer

Melissa Hubert for being with us this month!

You did great Girl!

Now,  Come on over to Just Us Girls and get Sketchy with us!

And while your there help me in welcoming our NEW Guest Designer

for the month of March….


Before I go….(Some Details)

I Love this new Stamp Set I got from my Fellow DT member Sharyn!

It’s from Stamp TV and is called A Little Something.

I also stamped my sentiment on vellum and heat embossed it

and paper pieced my vase and flowers!

Thanks Sharyn I can tell it’s going to be one of my new FAVS!

Take care,



Shabby Chic

Hello Friends,

Spent the day with 3 Talented Crafty girls yesterday and had a wonderful time!

First, we did a craft rummage sale at our local Art Store, I made a whopping 21 dollars…LOL

Next, we went to lunch at this great place by the water in Palmetto

called Riverside Drive Cafe.

Last, what is a get together without a little shopping?

We made a quick stop at Hobby Lobby!


I was thrilled to finally meet one of my fellow DT members from Seize the Birthday too.

JoAnn Burnham she is as sweet as I thought she would be…NO sweeter!

A while back, JoAnn was kind enough to tell me about Sue Lelli, and after

I stocked her blog for a few weeks, I had the courage to ask her if she would

like to meet for lunch and we talked non-stop like we had known each other forever.

Sue L. has introduced me to Mixed Media and is UBER talented at it!

 Susie Morris and I met online at Stamp TV a few years ago and hit it off

right away, she is one of the most generous people I have ever met and

I am so grateful that we crossed paths.

Feeling Blessed!

Anyhoo, onto my card for today!

My blog friend Donna (sure hope to meet her someday, she is to funny)

 is hosting a Shabby Chic challenge over at Stamp TV 

and time is running out, but I wanted to make sure I

supported her in her GD position over there!

Here is what I came up with!


Forgot the matching envelope!  I didn’t have any cream envelopes

so I decided to cover the envelope with the matching DP and added

the sentiment that is also inside the card!


The Design Paper is from Colorbok and is called Wild Rose.

The sentiment is from Gina K and is called Birthday Duo.

I used my Cuttlebug to cut out my doily shape,

my flower stem and my double scallop.

Finished it off with lots of distressing and some embellishments.

Thanks for stopping’ in…I so appreciate all your kind comments and visits!

Until next time,



Clean and Simple….X 2


Hope your weekend is going well!

Horribly cloudy and chilly here…so I took that as a sign that

I should hang out this afternoon in my studio …and that is what I did! 🙂

Today’s card is for 2 challenge blogs that are both looking for Clean and Simple Designs this week.

Stamp TV and Addicted to Stamps and More!

Although the card is definitely CAS…it still took me quite a while to do,

because of all the fussy cutting and shading with colored pencil.

Love this stamp set by Gina K Designs!

I just picked up this Recollections Valentine Paper pack from Michaels last night!

Hope you find time to be creative too…it’s good for the soul,
