Birthday card

I made this card for a Blog contest. She has been blogging for 1 year and is having a contest so i hurried and made the card to the directions she had up. Cardstock was stampin up- ruby red, choc. chip, close to cocoa, very vanilla or if you didn't have these colors as close to these colors as you get. Since i don't have stampin up cardstock i got as close as i could get.

This card is done by a sketch from

I just changed it up a bit and this is what I got from the sketch.I love it.

here is a picture of my hubby's brother Kippy who past away years ago. I scrapped this on artist canvas. I also ribberstamped on it also. On the right hand corner is a shaker box with a small picture of his brother also. This is my first time doing a layout on artist canvas and I loved doing it. i do think i will be doing another one in the future sometime. I gave this to my hubby's parents for christmas and they just loved it. :) They have this hanging it on their livingroom wall.

Here is a 2 layouts that I did of us when we babys. The originals wasn't doing what they was suppose to be doing. Soooooo I took the pictures out of the frames and scrapbooked them. I went and bought, on sale of course at Michaels, 2 collage frames. Randy picked out his papers that he wanted for the background of his and I picked out mine. Randy is on the left and i am on the right. Now if ytou look at my baby picture you will be looking at twin sisters also. :) My mom has hers also so i will be scrapping and sending hers down to south carolina where she lives at now. She works at Walmart in the deli section. Later when i get my twin sisters done and scrapped i will put it up here also to show you this way you can see how very much alike we are when we was little. lol.

Here is my first minibook that I did. I am just showing a few pages out of it. I gave this book to my brother in law. I thought it was quite easy and fast,where before I thought they was hard, but that are not.

The Beads are on a spiral clip. They was easy to get at first but I had to make sure the holes of the seed beads big enough to fit on the clip. Not every seed will fit, so trial and error will on this part to see if they fit. The tags are from stampin up punches. this card is going to a girl who has cancer. You can go to this site for more details--->

My First Halloween card for the year

This is my first card for halloween. The stamp I used it for the first time this year and since I had it. I love it. The black and white paper I printed from off the computer off of, which i love that site if you don't have any paper at the moment and need some, I just go there and see what they have and I know I can use what they have most of time. Even if its for embellies also, I will use. After I stamped Happy Haunting, the witch is a sequin that I mini glue dots on. Then comes the part I just absolutely love, glitter glue, I put it on the pumpkins and the moon. Boy, gotta have glitter glue on it. I will have to get to work on some more halloween cards later, but I have tags and ATC to work on for halloween right now for 2 swaps that I need to work on and i will load them up when i get them done also. :)

Fall Card sketch

This is a card I did from a card sketch from another blog. I did this tonight. I love the sketch and I had to do it. It is a little different. as where the circle's are is where squares are suppose to be. I thought circles would be great for me.
