Elisabeth Bell - Note Card Holder

Good morning! It's my day to post on Markerpop and thursdays are always 3-D projects. So today I am sharing with you a note card holder I created awhile back ago.

I used a grand nestie for the base. Made a generic box to attach to it, which holds the 4x4 note cards.  The sentiments are all from My favorite things. The image is called Cinnamon Sugar by Whimsy Stamps. She is available for purchase at Markerpop.

Also, this will be my last post until after the new year. I am going to take the time off to spend with my family. I just want to wish each of you a VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS and a HAPPY NEW YEAR!!  I will see you back in 2013.....

On my Mind....SOG New Release

Hello again! I'm back with a last clear stamp release for this month by Some Odd Girl. Today we are using Flirty Mae and isn't she soooo sweet!

So this week we have showcased.... Love me Not Mae, Love Bandits and now Flirty Mae. Which one was your favorite? My favorite is probably Love me Not, but it's a hard choice to pick just one!!
It comes with a couple different words and phrases. I used 2 together on here. She is colored with Copic markers. I then used some Vintage seam binding and added a pearl in the center.
Come by the Some Odd Girl Blog and check out the other DT's creations. We have an AMAZING team.....such talented ladies!!

Yummy in my tummy tag

Good morning!! 7 more days til Christmas...are you ready?? I'm not! Which is SO NOT like me. I'm usually finished by mid November so I'm feeling a little bit pressured and stressed right about now. It was all those darn vacations!!

I had a monster cookie baking day on Saturday. My mom, sister and sis-in-law got together and baked ALL DAY LONG. It was crazy and I was exhausted! We ended up making 18 types of cookies!! They are all delicious. We then packaged them up and gave them out to family and friends.

The Ribbon Carousel's monthly challenge is still underway and it's holiday themed. So with my baking marathon and the theme I thought this little tag was fitting.

The image is Gingerbread Kaylee from Some Odd Girl. She is colored with copic markers. The paper is simple stories. I used some Green Jute that I picked up from the Ribbon Carousel.

If you get a chance, do come play with us at the Carousel. The prize each month is a Ribbon Carousel!! How cool is that?

Love Me Not Mae - New Release

Good morning! Fun stuff this week, Some Odd Girl has a couple new stamp releases and you are going to love them. I know I do!  Todays release is Love Me Not Mae.
Love Me Not was colored with Copic markers. I used my sewing machine to stitch around. Please don't laugh. My regular maching, which I love, is out of commision and I need to desperately take it in to get fixed. In the meantime I heard all these great reviews on the Janome Sew Mini, well let's just say the machine and I do not get along!!! So there are LOTS of wobbles.  I also always screw up on which stitch I have it set it was on the little itty bitty stitch and I started and it was too late. Thats what I get for trying to stitch on a colored image. I WAS NOT redoing it!!!
The paper is Prima's Rondele collection - love this one.  The ribbon is papertrey. The beautiful sentiment is one of the sentiments that are included with the Love me Not Mae set.
You can see the other DT's cards, they are all so fabulous, on the Some Odd Girl Blog.

Be Merry - MFT

Good morning! I know, I's been forever since I have posted!  My family and I went away for a week to the Georgia Mountains.  We stayed in a beautiful cabin in the woods and had thanksgiving.  We took little trips into town, did some shopping and enjoyed lots of Pies from Merciers in Blue Ridge, GA. Can we say - yummmmmy! I love that place, if you are ever in the area it's definitely a must visit kind of place! We did the orchard tour too so it was fun to learn all the history of it. The original owner, Ms. Adele is in her 90's and she still shows up to work every day! ;-)  It's our favorite place to go!  Another of my favorite places in Blue Ridge is The Sweet Shoppe, they were on Cupcake Wars and just recently made the cupcakes for the American Music Awards! Pretty cool. Not to mention they have a beautiful little shop in the downtown area of Blue Ridge.

Now it's back to reality. I am grossly behind on my christmas task. I have barely started shopping and normally I am completely done by now. I didn't get my Christmas cards made and I know it's still early, but I hardly have any christmas decorations up and don't see it happening over the next 2 weeks.  However, I do have a couple cards finished and waiting to be posted so we will start with this one:

I have colored this Pure Innocence from My Favorite Things image with Copic markers.  I used some vintage seam binding and a jute knot on the button. The tab die and border punch are both from My Favorite Things as well.

Thanks for looking - Don't forget I have another prize up for grabs on my Facebook Page!

Gooooood Morning! Today the Some Odd Girls are sharing the latest Digi release!!  If you haven't seen the last couple of days come by the blog and check out the other 2 digi releases!

Today I am using - Cuppa Mae. I am NOT a coffee drinker, however, lately I have been sick and I have been grabbing coffee, hot tea or hot chocolate because it warms me up and makes me feel so much better!  I knew I wanted to play with Cuppa Mae. I had some ideas of making these little Keurig Boxes for sometime now and It's just the perfect image for it!!

I found this box tutorial online, however, the directions were ALL WRONG. I was so aggravated (as were many others when I started reading the comments, lol) so I did some tweaking and made it work and I love it. So, I am going to redo this and make a little tutorial to share soon.
I think I know what people at work are getting this year! ;-)  Perfect little something....

I colored Cuppa Mae with copic markers.  The paper is from My Minds Eye, one of their older lines. The Ribbon is V-Striped Twill from May Arts. The sentiment is from CTMH. 

Copic Colors:
Skin: E000, E00, E11, R02

All I some FB Candy and YOU!

Hello!  How is everybody....sorry it's been so quiet on the blog lately. Between the Holidays and being sick I have had no mojo!!  This week I am trying to get things organized, cleaned and ready for my Thirty One party I am having.  I had a HUGE Failed attempt at making Macarons last night too. If they didn't take so much in terms of money and prep, I wouldn't mind failing at making them in honor of learning the technique gets costly!!  I am going to try again tonight, I spent a little while last night getting a few more pointers. I think mine failed because I didn't fold them enough. So it was too stiff.  Whatever.... If they don't come out again....I'm done and I will wait til I am in NYC and go to Bouchon Bakery, which have EXCELLENT Macarons, to get my fix!
Don't let me lose you yet. I have a card to share and some FACEBOOK Candy below.   
I used Tilda with Little Rudolph from the Magnolia Little Christmas Collection.  She is so sweet!  The sentiment is from Some Odd Girl - GingerBread Kaylee set.

Copic Colors: 
Red: R24, R27, R29, W4
Skin: E000, E00, E11, R20
Hair: E51, E53, E33

Deer: E42, E43, E44, E47

Autumn Blessings....

Good morning!!! Lucky me went to a crop ALL DAY Saturday and got in some much needed card making. We had a great time too. There were loads of giveaways and games. I won a nice zebra print carry-on bag. At the end of the day I ended up getting 8 cards completed and a couple images colored. I had so many images already colored and so many others that I wanted to get inked before the holidays ran by! Here is one of the cards that I completed:

The pumpkins are from CC Designs. The paper is from Authentique.  I used some Brown Vintage Seam Binding from the Ribbon Carousel.

Can you believe the holidays are right around the corner??  I love this time of year but hate how fast it flys by. I also usually have my shopping close to being done by now and I have only bought 1 thing so far!!  As my kids and nieces and nephews get older it gets so difficult to buy for them!! I think I am going to open up the purse strings and hand out money trees this year....they can then go buy what they want.  Less stress on me too! ;-)

Have a good one!

Thanks a Latte...

Good morning!!!!! Sorry for the quietness around my blog lately. I have taken some time off so that I can spend more time with my family.  In doing that I recently stepped down from a couple of my Design Teams. It was such a hard decision to make. I didn't want to leave any, truth be told. But I needed to make some changes and I had to evaluate the requirements and my time.  My hardest one to give up was YNS. The owner is such a sweetie...I will truly miss all of them. Not to mention the images are adorable and fun to work with.

All these changes could NOT have came at a better time for me though. I have been struggling through pneumonia for 2 weeks now. Not FUN!! They tell me that I need to REST...what the heck is that???  Needless to say, has not been easy for me to get the rest that I need. Knowing that I do not have as much DT work on my shoulders has helped though. I'm also bummed because I missed out on all the Halloween parties this weekend. :-((  Oh well, next year I plan on being in the I will party plenty then! ;-)

Thought I would share a card today using Thanks a Latte from Your Next Stamp (YNS).

Copic Colors:

Hair: E21, E23, E25, E29
Red: R22, R24, R27, R59
Orange: YR61, YR65, YR68

You devil....

Todays my day for posting over on the Markerpop Blog!  I'm still trying to get all my seasonal cards posted and here is another one.....

This little Devil is called Devilish Lucy from C.C. Designs. I used some Black hemp twine and looped it a few times. I used a punch on the sides and weaved the twine in through paper. She is popped up a little with some foam squares to allow for the hemp. It's hard to see, but the heart button is a wood button from Prima. It wasn't the color I needed, so I just colored over it with my copic markers. The original was very light, pastel colors.  Did you know you could use your copics for more than coloring on paper??

Thanks for looking today and if you are going out to a Halloween Party - Have fun and be safe!!

Welcome to the Neighborhood....

Helllllo!  So recently a friend of mine, who happens to be my awesome hairdresser, moved into the neighborhood. I wanted to get her a little something for the new house and I knew exactly what stamp set I wanted to use to make the card. I LOVE this set, On the Move by There She Goes, it's the cutest darn thing!!  There are loads of images and sentiments on it, I had a terrible time trying to choose just one!

I ended up settling on this:

I kept it simple. Colored it up with my Copic makers. The paper is from Farmhouse.
Reds:  R22, R24, R27, R59, W4
Boxes: E42, E43, E44
Skin: E000, E00, E11
Hair: E21, E23, E25, E29

Trick or Treat

Halloween is going to be here before you know it!!  This is the first year that I don't have any parties to go to or dressing up to do, it's kind of sad! ;-(  Sure wish I was in Key West right about now! I guess it's for the best though, I have been sick for a week now. Instead of getting better I swear I'm getting worse.  I try to tell my Drs. that if not treated properly my colds will turn in to Bronchitis....they never seem to believe me until a couple days later I come back in worse that when I saw them!! 
I have not felt like doing anything this week. I haven't picked up a marker....I haven't read any books. This crazy girl has made tons of cupcakes though. Probably why I'm still sick. Hopefully I will be better by Weds, a friend and I have 500 cupcakes to bake and decorate for a Fall Festival this weekend.
On to my card, I thought I would share this before Halloween comes and goes... this cute witch is from Your Next Stamp.

Copic Colors:
Skin -  E000, E00, E11, R11
Black - C03, C05, C07, C09
Hair -  Y21, Y26, E33
Dress -  ?????
I have been changing up my oranges this last month and I can't remember which colors I used...sorry about that!
Have a good one,

So Very Thankful...

I have a couple seasonal cards in the "hopper" I figured I best get to posting them before this holiday season flys by as it always seems to do. Every year I print out, cut out and now PIN ideas to make for the holidays. Every year when I start to get in the Holiday mood I look at them and say, why the time I get it finished It will be over. I did it again this year! Now I keep looking at my calendar and saying - I'm gone that weekend, plans that weekend.....gone again...blah blah blah. I seriously have like 2 open weekends and I'm sure they will be filled soon!

So here's to another year of not getting projects completed. Blah!

On to my card. This adorable little one is from There She Goes Stamps and the set is called Pumpkins on the Vine. The background paper is simple stories.

I added some brown jute and even did a little stitchin on this with my Janome Sew mini. The sentiment was cut out from the Simple Stories paper as well.  Easy Peasy!
I have most of the Copic colors used:
Yellow - Y11, Y15, E33
Red - R22, R24, W4
Hair and Boots - E42, E43, E44, E47
Green- G21, G24, G28
Orange - Not positive on this ...sorry!

 This is one of my favorite Magnolias. Tilda with Broom. So cute. I colored her with Copics.

The pretty Black and Orange Ribbon is from the Ribbon Carousel.

Fun Friday!

Let it snow...well not quite......but that is the theme of this months Fun Friday at YNS.  My card isn't really a "let it snow" I don't have many of "those" types of stamps because to be honest, it depresses me. I miss seeing Snow...ON OCCASSION....and I have such a small amount of time to use them because living in florida once the holidays are gone, my mind is WAY off of  snow and winter themes. You know when the temperature is in the high 70's and I'm wearing shorts it just feels weird drawing up a wintery, snowy image!!

So my card this week is a Christmas card, hope that works for you! ;-)

I have used Light Me Up from Your Next Stamp, colored with Copic Markers.  The paper is from Bo Bunny and the ribbon from my Stash. The Sentiment is from the Holiday Snow Globe set.  Which by the way, after I colored this up thinking I had nothing in terms of Let It Snow, I could have used this awesome set!! Guess what you will be seeing NEXT fun friday!!
Thanks for looking!

Life is like.....

It's 3-D Thursday at MarkerPop, so I am showcasing a frame that I created for my Bff and Sister's (from another mother) Birthday.  She loves to ride bikes.  She also happens to love when I use any of the uptown girls, they are her favorite. So when Stamping Bella released this cutie a few months back I knew it had to be mine. I love how it came out and so simple to do.

The stamp comes with this qoute, but it wouldn't fit where I wanted it. So I computer generated it. This stamp is rather large, so I marked the corners of the matte so I new where to stamp it.  

For my coloring I used a mixture of Copics and Prisma Color Pencils.

Hey Ghoul-Friend...

A few years ago one of the first companies to give me a shot was a digi store called "Stretch n' Bubbles".  I remember being so first DT!  Alison, the owner of it was super sweet and wonderful.  She has since closed that down and started back up as "The Alley Way Stamps", which are NOT digis and are made from Clear Acylic Stamps. The sets are sooooo adorable and have the cutest sentiments with them.  So if you haven't checked out The Alley Way Stamps, take a peek! Plus she has an awesome DT....

I was lucky to have won a set in one of the blog hops. I loved the halloween set - Ghoul Friend.

Is that a cute Mummy or what?  I've colored it with Copic Markers and used some black net ribbon.
Thanks for looking!
