5 Tools I cannot Live Without

here are my 5 tools that I cannot live without.

1-my fiskars 12x12 cutter,as this has an arm that comes out for the paper and it also has numbers on it so you see what you are measuring.

2-rubberstamps,cannot live without those as those are the breathe of life and creatvity.

3-cardstock, cannot do anything without this as I can make just about anything out of this, even embellishments if need be.

4-markers, these come in handy when you want certain colors in a certain place

5-ink pads. most important here.

Shades of Yellow

I seen this sketch on a blog and I just had to do it as I loved it. But I had to add another row instead of just 1 like they did. the stamps i used are from stampin up and the cardstock from hollo's.

Ice Cream, Butterflies & Ballet

here are 3 cards that I did. 2 of the 3 cards are done with TAC stamps and the other is with Stampin Up stamps. all my cardstock is from Hollo's in Brunwicks.

Snap,Crackle, and Pop

this one is also on vellum. I think this card is missing something but I not have much on things to add to it. so i am asking you all what can I add to this card because I think it is missing something yet?? please add your comment about it and let me know if it needs anything more. many thanks.

All American

I did this on vellum. I haven't done it for along time and I love doing vellum, even using it for background. instead of using vellum tape I used brads.

Chicks Rule

I just had to buy this stamp set from TAC. first time I am using it and I thought this is perfect.

Big Brother

this stamp image was given to me in a swap and I do not remember where or when. I love this image though. instead of ribbon I used some fibers that has multi tone colors on it. just perfect for this one.

I used scraps that I had to make this card. the hat,shoes and purse are wood embellishments that i ised choc. ink on them from ancient page.

Flying a Kite

I found this on a blog this sketch and i had to do it as i liked. I made this scallops by punching small circles from a punch. the triangle i did by using a ruler and it was trial and error with it for me. LOL. but it turned out good.

Kazan Sketch 2- 2 sketches 4 you

This card I did for the sketch on 2 Sketch 4 you blog. It is the first time i ever did it for this blog. I think it is a very great and i might be using it alot as it was very easy to do last night. I cut the scallops by using my scallop scissors. I have the mini ones so it was easier for me to do it that way. the verse on the card is from a stamp from stampin up but I only used part of it. this way I was able to use a marker to get what I needed.

Challenge 17 Beates Blog

Beate had a challenge on her blog with a pillow that is black and white. This is my take with the 2 cards tht i made. i love betty boop. so I made 2 cards with her for the challenge with just a touch a red.

My Nephew

this layout is done on a 8.5x11. this ribbon was suppose to have eyelets but I thought this would be more groovy.I think he is such a cutie. I will be doing one of his sister Jadynn also who is a cutie also.


well i had an upper endoscopy done yesterday and it turns out that I have acid reflux so i will be taking nexium for that. plus the dr. also took some biopsies also. this was an easy test and nothing to worried about as I was asleep for the time they did it in. plus when i got home I slept somemore in the morning and afternoon. getting it all out of my system. I will see you all later and hopefully to have more to post on cards and such then. Now that everything is hopefully under control now,I hope. LOL!!!
