Whiff of Joy challenge

Whiff of Joy challenge #22

I used BoBunny's paper: Abbey Road. I really love that paper. I need to get some more of it.
And I used several copics to color in the Kneeling Willow image which I got from Norma (hugs to Norma).

SU club cards I made tonight

My neighbor and friend MaryJo is a SU demonstrator and she always has fun things for us to make when we get together. Tonight was club night and we made some really cute cards. This first one was made using the "Totally Tool" set. Awesome design, I know just who will be getting this card! The second card was made with the "Wanted" stamp set, we stamped our own background paper for this one! This last card is so simple but very elegant and we even made a box for it. The box would probably hold 4 to 5 cards w/envelopes. Love the textured Impressions die "The Manhattan Flower". Thanks MaryJo for a fun night making all these great cards.

3 + 1 brown challenge

Hope everyone is having a Happy St. Patty's day so far. Im enjoying a little wine but behaving myself here at home:) I was feeling a little green (not from too much wine) so I couldn't help but make this brown and GREEN card with Goodluckabella and some really pretty BoBunny paper from their new line that just came out "Abbey Road". Love that paper!!!! This card is for a challenge over at

Spring flowers

I got this image in a image swap so Im not really sure who gave it to me but I really liked it and wanted to color it today so I came up with this little card, it's pretty simple and probably needs a sentiment but, I think it turned out kinda pretty.

I really like using copics and I've been investing in some new ones when they are on sale, which they happen to be this week. Otherwise, I can't afford them at regular price which is $6.49 ea. at my local Hobby Lobby. I have thirteen so far, i think that's enough to keep me busy for awhile. I got some new Brilliance black ink for stamping, so there will be no more smearing when using the copics.

I'm addicted to this new stamp.

I'm back.........It's been awhile since I've been on. I finally got my new stamp from Whiff of Joy. I've been stamping and stamping and coloring with my copics knowing that copics and stazon don't mix but I had to make a card anyway. Time for some new black ink. Anyway, I managed to get the image of "Willow with hot chocolate" done with minimal smearing and came up with this card. I really like this image, the girl reminds me of my daughter. There are a couple other stamps Im wanting from Whiff of Joy. Love their stamps.

This is my card I completed for the "Build a card challenge" in one of my favorite groups "Card Makin Mamas" on cafemom. I did add an extra step after the challenge was done because I want to give this card to my sister for her birthday on March 4th. I added a sentiment on the front.

My new QuicKutz

I had to use my Archiver coupons yesterday cause they were expiring. So, I happily went shopping. I love that store and it's really hard to stick to a budget when going in there. So pretty much after checking just about everything out and going up and down every isle I settled on some QuicKutz dies. I already had the owl one cause I just recently purchase the Big Shot and after that purchase well I only had enough $$$ to buy one die and I absolutely LOVE owls. The QuicKutz exclusively for Archivers were Buy one and get one 50% off. No brainer! I used my 30% of coupon on one and got the other one 50% off. What a deal! After much consideration I finally decided on the Birthday Penguin and the Palm Tree. I got some playing time today and made a couple of each. Though I would share them with you. Enjoy!
