Entering my first challenge!

I've been following challenge blogs for a while now and while I get ideas from them I haven't submitted anything yet.
Well now I have my own blog I have no excuses anymore for not joining in.
So I'm throwing my card in the ring for the Blonde Hair challenge at Copic Creations

I love these Sarah Kay images and this one was fun to color and I hope you like her too. I used one of my favorite punches, Apron Lace, and tried my hand at a hatpin too!
Hope you have a wonderful SUnday!

A Sweet Saturday

Another busy day in our house but what's new?
My oldest son is helping a Scout with his Eagle project, my husband has just left to run a BB Range and my daughter is off to dinner late at the American Girl store with her Girl Scout troop.
So I'm left here with the little one and his potty training antics!
Ah the joys of Motherhood! LOL
So to get myself in a sweet mood I thought I'd share a little Tilda with Cowberry Muffin card.
This one was created a couple of months ago when I owned less markers and had not sought out every You Tube video and blog tutorial out there.
But I still think she turned out cute.

I love the Martha Stewart lace border punch and this was the perfect time to use it. The mini cupcakes were from a stamp from the dollar spot at Michaels and I cut them out and covered them with Glossy Accents. The DP is Basic Grey and the ribbon is American Crafts.
Hope you have a Sweet Saturday too!

Frantic Friday

Today is a busy day with errands and taking my oldest son to the doctors for a physical and shots but I wanted to post a little message to you all.
I wanted to say a great big Thank You to everyone who left me a comment and for those of you who also chose to follow me! I feel very thankful to have entered a world with such wonderful crafters who take their time to make someone feel good :)
So the card today is dedicated to all of you.
I made him a while ago but he's so cute I wanted to see him again.

This little fellow is from Elzybells and this time I colored him and cut him out and popped him up.
I love these stamps and with the recent new release I feel the urge to go shopping again!
Have a wonderful weekend.

Say hello to the Ladybug :)

This morning I have another bright and cheery Tilda card to share.
For this one I dug into my stash of papers and these I feel sure came from companies no longer with us :(
It seems as though each month I hear of another great company leaving us and I hate using paper that I can never replace.
Oh well at least the papers were cute! LOL
I used my Threading Water border punch, Nestabilities circle and lots of Dew Drops. Actually my dew drops aren't the real thing, they were from the floral dept but they do the same job.
I hope you like her.

A Flutterby you say?

I wanted to share another Tilda card that I made using stamps from the Spring Collection.
SHe is so cute and welcoming and was so much fun to color.
It was the first time I had used a background stamp and to color grass and sky was a little scary but I do like the results and hope you do too.

I just realised that this card can go in the Insect challenge over at Just Magnolia so here I go with another challenge!

Late to the party but here I am :)

It seems that everyone in the world has a blog, a MySpace, a Facebook or a Twitter and although I read them daily I haven't had one myself.
I follow many card making blogs and love to see the new items everyone makes.
So it time for me to dip my toes in the water and get my feet wet :)
I've been scrapbooking for over 10 years but only started making cards in September of 2008. It has become an obsession and I just love to sit and create a mini masterpiece.
I've become a Copic fanatic, an OMS addict and don't ask me about the stamps!
I've been selling on eBay for almost 10 years and so it seemed natural to add cards to my line up. I follow the challenge blogs but have never submitted as I haven't had a blog to link to.
Hopefully that will change now I have a blog too!
I'm going to end this initial post with a card I made just yesterday and I hope you like it as much as I do.

I used my Copics to color this cute image of Tilda by Magnolia and the papers are Making Memories Chloes Closet.
