Ladies Ink 3-D Project Challenge

This is my 3-Project that I created for ladies Ink, a blogging group I belong to on SCS. Check out their Blogs listed on the left of my page. This is a food journal that I made for myself (: I exercise, but lately my eating habits have been slipping into an unhealthy zone! This journal features two friends drinking coffee and look NO Pastries on the table, LOL! The paper is Rusty Pickle it's a few years old. I LOVE it so I didn't want to use it. The notebook was from the Dollar store and just the right size for my daily food journaling.  I folded the large flower in half and placed a very old pearl brad in it. The Primas have a Basic Grey Pearl in the center. I used scraps of ribbon to embellish the binding. I also added diamond stickles to one of the ladies pants. I love adding a touch of glitter to regular DP to make it extra special. I used my Glue Glider Max to adhere all the paper and embellishments. 
This is a back side of this nutritious journal (: Notice the slim ladies shopping, this helps me remember that if I want to enjoy shopping I must use this journal. The sentiment reads "With all my dietary restrictions, I'm left with water and lipstick". This is one of my favorite stamps and it goes well with the lipstick ready stamp from House Mouse. Speaking of House mouse I added several new HM stamps to the store so go shopping today!

Finding Friendship!

I had so much fun making this card! The image is a Gruffies, Finding Friendship. I was inspired by the frame tutorial a few weeks ago on SCS. The paper is Mommy and Me Woodsy Glitter. The sentiment is from an old SU set. The metal embellishments are from a 350 pack embellishment set that I totally LOVE! I colored this image with Copics. I am planning on creating a list of Copic colors that work beautifully with House Mouse, Gruffies and Happy Hoppers stamps. I hear so many people complain that they have trouble coloring them. The key is to not use too dark of colors so the fur shows through. I also highlight with the Copic blender pen. The blender pen is nothing like SU blender pens. It removes color so it is perfect for adding light spots and highlighting. I have been busy with my new Recipe Card Challenge Blog! Check out the link  (: I am in the process of placing a DT together and so far I have a GREAT team! Take a LOOK

Recipe Swap fun and NEW challenge Blog!

This is a 6x6 recipe card I made for a SCS swap I am in. I used a SU set I got for my birthday last year called Under The Stars. This recipe is a VERY old family recipe that has been my favorite all my life. I had this cookie paper in my stash so I thought it was perfect! I am totally addicted to recipe swaps (:
 I started a NEW recipe challenges Blog that will feature weekly recipe card challenges, ideas and of course great recipes! I am looking for a few reliable friends to join in on the weekly challenges, so if you would like to participate once, weekly or monthly send me an email with a link to your Blog, along with any questions. This Blog is for those who want to have fun in their craft room as well as the kitchen. A few fun incentives from my store will be sent to DT members and Guest Designers ranging from free product gifts to great discounts throughout the year. Let me know if this is your cup of soup ):

Groovy 70's Style!

This is a card I made for my TV appearance back in June. I used a large Spellbinders scallop circle and cord to make this fun design. The paper is Basic Grey. I stamped a sentiment on the inside of this paper bag card. It reminds me of the 70's (: I have been working on several recipe swap cards this week, and I can't wait to share them as soon as I get my hands on my camera from DH car. He tells me the battery is dead, so it my be tomorrow before I can share them ): I have set up a table in our living room, because I have signed up for several recipe swaps, LOL! I have made a real mess, but so do my four children.....who will notice (:

Happy Birthday Cupcake!

This is a fun little birthday card I made using my Scalloped Circle Nestabilities. I just folded the paper like a card and cut, using the largest shape, to make this cute little shape. The paper is from Basic Grey called Cupcake and the cupcake is an older SU stamp. I used Pearl from Ranger to make the icing. I used Stickles on several of the balloons on the paper. I used Valentines Primas on the top. I just LOVE Prima flowers (: I hope everyone is having a great weekend! We have some family fun planed today so I better get off the computer (:

Beary Good Ice Cream!

Ice Cream with a buddy is just the best! I had to have this gruffies stamp, Beary Good Ice Cream!!!! I think this stamp goes perfectly with Cupcake, Basic Grey's 6x6 paper pad. I colored these beary good friends with Copics. I used Spellbinders Scalloped Oval large for the die cut. This was a simple card to make but a lot of fun (: 
DH and I made it back from our 100 mile bike (not motorized) ride last weekend. I was not tired when we arrived in Herman and even walked across town to the Vintage restaurant. I did however start to have a reaction to the spray sunscreen I used that day. I developed BIG welts on my skin so I took two Benadryl before bed. DH said there was a big storm that night but I slept like a ROCK, LOL! On our way home we had to deal with 10 fallen tress on the Katy Trail, two of which we had to work our way through holding our bikes, YIKES! I have to say the Benadryl did not help my ability to feel energetic on the way home, but I did make it. We had a wonderful time! I hope we can do it again in the Fall. Our B&B was just like a storybook (: 
Did everyone have a happy 4th of July?

Glitz up your 4th!!!!

I made this box in a bag for my SS filled with candy (: I used paper from Glitz Design and found it to work beautifully. The flower is a large Bazzil flower that i had on hand and the center is a SU stamp. Here is the SCS tutorial if you would like to make one. 
This is a HM paper bag card I made. I colored this image with Copics and highlighted the lemon center, flower and mouses nose with Stickles. HM is soooo fun to color and I carry a large selection in my online store so take a look. The background flower is a large Bazzil I had on hand. The paper is GLitz Design. If you have never used Glitz paper you really should try it! I am in love with quality paper (: By the way I stuck a Kool Aide pink lemonade pack in the back pouch of this card. 
I hope you all in the U.S. have a safe and happy 4th of July weekend!! DH and I are biking 50 miles to a B&B tomorrow and 50 miles back on the 4th. I am so excited!!!!!! 
Tell me about your plans (:
