This card was a real pest to make! My adhesive went everywhere, I was able to get it off the card but not the SU taffeta ribbon :( I'm a horrible "watercolorist" so please be gentle on me-I promise I am working on it lol. For the icing on the cupcake I used pale plum and perfect plum, the cupcake wrapper is close to cocoa. The bella's dress is certainly celery and night of navy. For the shadowing I used sage shadow. The card base is perfect plum and the accent paper is Enchate.

Chocolate Anyone?

My husband lost his job a little over a month ago and for the first few days it was nice...Then a few weeks went by and I realized that WE REALLY don't get along that well when we're together 24/7 lol! Since it's been a little tense in the house we currently live in I decided that I would make him something to let him know that he still means a lot to me. This candy box is just a 4 oz metal tin that I bought from specialty bottle. I covered it with paper from SU's retired enchante line. The heart stamp is from papertrey's sweet love set. I added the brad (su's build a brad) to give it a little "umph" guess I can be honest..I was trying to use my adhesive eraser but instead ended up taking a big chunk of paper off and needed to hide it :) The ribbon is mellow moss taffeta.

Kylie Picts..

So this past weekend we went to see my husbands grandparents in Oklahoma. While we were there we had a joint birthday part for Kylie and her cousin Brody.

Target Mailbox

I wanted this to be a valentine mailbox for my mom and dad but its kind of to "wedding-ish" I think. Don't get me wrong I'll probably still end up giving it to them anyway! The paper that I used for this mail box is: pink & grey diamonds and pink & grey hearts & vines-both by the paper studio. The ribbon is SU's pink taffeta and white grosgrain-I have no idea who made the silver ribbon, I was just lucky enough to find it in my ribbon stash.

For Kylie..

I decided to make Kylie's valentines card a little early. The main image is from SU's new Happy Heart Day set. If I were to re-do this card I would change the ribbon from white taffeta to white grosgrain! The princess sentiment is from Studio G and the teal DSP is from SU's petals and paisley line.

For Brody..

This card is for my husband's 4 year old cousin. I must say I really need to work on my boy card making skills!! I don't usually make little kids cards because they don't really care that they're homemade and they usually trash them. I decided I would make an exception today :) BBBUUT I will say that I used the minimum for this card. The real red card base is your basic 4.25x5.5. The polka dot blue bayou paper is 3x4.5. The garden green strip is 4.5x0.75. For the main image I used the dump truck from SU's retired by land set that I colored in with markers. I matted it onto a scalloped basic grey rectangle. The ribbon is from that "M" store.

SUPPLIES: Stamps: by land Ink: real red, blue bayou, basic black, garden green Paper: basic grey, real red, blue bayou DSP, garden green Accessories: red ribbon, rectangle nestabilites.

Happy Birthday to ME!!

Yes today I'm a quarter of a century old! I just wanted to say I'm sorry I haven't posted the last few days, the RX the doc put me on has me literally sleeping 22 or more hours a day. To be honest I'd much rather be sleeping than having a seizure! So, since I don't have anything to post today I thought I would post the seven random facts about myself (Stampmouse tagged me a few weeks ago). So here we go:
1. My all time favorite color is purple-even though nothing on my side of the office is that color and my room is teal and chocolate.

2. My parents literally live less than two miles away and my grandmother lives right at two.

3. My DD hit the terrible two's a little early; and let me say she gives "terrible two's" a whole new meaning!

4. I found out I had a partial frontal-lobe seizure disorder two days after my 18th birthday.

5. This is gross but random-in H.S. I would go months without shaving my legs (that is if I didn't have a boyfriend)

6. I want to try for a second baby this summer.

7. When I get my own studio (hopefully soon) I want to paint it a deep lavender with white trim and white crown molding.

Again I'm sorry for the lack of postings and I really do appreciate all your warm comments!

I'm BAAACK (sorta)..

First off I wanted to say thank you to all of you who left all those wonderful comments! On friday I had two seizures and was placed into the hospital. I'm still not feeling 100% but I felt better enough to make my daughter-who's second birthday was this past sat-a card. My leg is still bothering me but I know the Lord will help see me through this though time. This card is for the sketch challenge over at SCS. The paper is pretty in pink and loves me DSP. The main image is colored with prismacolors.
