Happy Wednesday!!!

Hello!! I decided to try doing an 8 x 8 page layout. I've never done one before but I have to say they are really fun to do. They don't take as long as a 12x12 layout which means you feel like you've accomplished something quicker! This is my first attempt...
I can understand why people would like this size album..its handy, compact and really cute!! I used the rest of My Minds Eye paper that I had, from the card I made a few days ago, which is a great way to use perfect leftover paper. The tear bear, made of mulberry paper, sets it off quite cute, I think!!
Wednesdays are always short school days for my kids, they get out early, so I'm off to do chores and such before its time to go get them!!
Enjoy your Wednesday and Thanks for stopping by!!!

Spring has Sprung!!

So I actually made this card on Sat. using the sketch over on the Penny Black Saturday Challenge blog. It was my first time doing a sketch from there and it was fun!!!It was from 2 weeks ago but those challenges never get "old" so you can do them anytime....
I used the Penny Black "Companion" stamp and did the flower twice and added another butterfly, both pop dotted, to add a little more fun! The paper (which is very "springy")and ribbon are from Making Memories, Prima flowers and stickles along with various brads and gems finish up the card. This card will be on eBay tomorrow so if you want, you can see the inside there. Thanks for taking a peek!!
Have a Happy Day!!

Edited to add: This card has been sold. Thank You!

Happy Spring!!!

I love the Friday Sketchers blog and often think...I want to do that but then something comes up or I forget, well this week, I decided to just do it!! Photobucket
The paper is My Minds Eye and I love the whole line!! I used the new Spring 2009 Magnolia stamps which are super cute and I pop dotted her off the card then I pop dotted her pockets and the cute ladybug! Her rubber boots I glazed to make them look shiny! I downloaded the circle sentiment that I think looks perfect on this card! Finished with a little ribbon, some Primas and a tiny bit of bling!
The weather is perfect today!! Spring is here!! Enjoy your weekend!!

Lucky You!!

With St.Patricks Day right around the corner, I thought I should do something green! This is a Rachael Anne Miller stamp, Lily, Picking Flowers from Stampavie!!! I love this image!!
I used super shimmery paper, The Green Day line by Reminisce and Bazzill Bling card stock!! Golden tread and Dew Drops add a little fun. I colored the image with Copics and I was sure to add a little glitter with my atyou pens!! Love those!!! This card will be on eBay shortly for a quick 5 day auction and you can see close ups and the inside there if you'd like to...

Until next time.....

May you always have
Walls for the winds,
A roof for the rain,
Tea beside the fire,
Laughter to cheer you,
Those you love near you,
And all your heart might desire!

Copic Storage Solutions!!

I've decided Copic markers are addictive!! I love them...wish I had all of them and can't wait to get more of them. I love it when I see how other people store their markers and I saw this inexpensive way on LOTS of blogs! Since the price couldn't be beat, I decided to store mine in the same way!!
These little buckets can be found at IKEA in lots of different colors, since my studio is lavender and white, I choose the white ones. You can choose from green, blue, black or several other colors too! For under $8.00, my happy Copics are off my work space and now at eye level and I have been loving it ever since!!
Now if I could just organize the rest of the place! =:O)
