I just Love Lori's images and I really hope you ALL get a chance to visit her Store and see ALL these super cute Images that Lori her self has designed and created. They are soo many choices and the images are soo VERSATILE that they are great for cards, scrapbook pages, mini albums or any other projects that you dream of.

Say Hello to "BoysRUs." Are they just not the cutes. Love that they are soo different but SILL the SAME.. :0)). This is Cole in the Brown pants and Gavin in the Blue pants. They are part of the NEW  "Special Edition" that was released early this Month. They are from the Puddle Jumper line and are also sold separately.

 Because it was a "Masculine" or Boy card I tried to keep it pretty simple.. I think even my 16 yr old would approve :0). I colored them up with my Prisma and OMS. Card Stock is from  PTI. and the DP are just some 'scraps' that I had forever. So I was excited that I got a chance to use them up. :0) I added the 'faux' stitching with my Sakura white gell pen". The "little button" ( they are much smaller than the average ones I use I got from Wal-Mar. ( my go to store. for my crafting needs :0) Sentiment is from my GF "My Guy Ian" set. I thought it was "perfect" for the two of them.

I have had these little cuties just sitting in my "stamp box" waiting to be colored and showcased., but I was always a little "nervous" to color them. especially when you see ALL the gorgeous creations being displayed over at The Greeting Farm Blog and Gallery. I wanted to to a "Spring" theme and her with her basket of "fresh" cut flowers is just a "Perfect" image for any spring time layout. I colored her all up with my Prisma and OMS. for her flower and the bow in her hair I used my "sakura" gell pen.

Birthday Wishes with Anya

Here is my 2nd card showing another of my "gorgeous" little Anya from The Greeting Farm.  This one is from the "Miss Anya Collection" set. I only colored her skin Purse and Head band I left her outfit and shoes Natural ( no colors at all)
There are some BIG changes coming to Club Anya and Friends, with that there will NO longer be a Saturday sketch. soo this is the last one for them.. So I knew that because I just love ALL of Jen Shults work ( she does most/all of the Saturday Sketches) I had to play along this week.

I just love everything about this sketch. Again with just coloring just a little part of her I wanted to add LOTS of bling and sparkles. So I added stickles to her "purse & her head band". Card Stock is from PTI, DP: Echo Park "Little Girl" pack. (such a gorgeous pack) I got it in the 6 x 6 sample pack from "Claudia & Co.

I used my Nesti Ribbon Tag die to cut out Sentiment which is from PTI and stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black ink.  Ribbon is from Michael's. and Bling is from "Fine & Dandy" True Blue collection. Punch is from M.S. and I used Pop dots to make her pop.

Go 4 It with Anya

Happy Saturday everyone.. I am soo enjoying this very Cool crisp Saturday with my two youngest ones today. My other two are off doing their own thing and my DH is at the Auto Shop getting our "wind shield wiper" replaced. We have been having raining all week long and they said we may get more this weekend.. So happy for when it starts to truly feel like "spring" . But still we can deal with it because in just a few more months and we will be having 100 plus weather for summer. :0)
Yesterday I pulled out my The Greeting Farm stamps and started to color a few of them ( I have truly neglected them in the last month or soo..) and I decided that I have been missing out on all the  awesome challenges that they have been hosting on TGF blog as well as Club Anya and Friends.

 Now just about two weeks ago my card was chosen as a "Mistery Monday" Where the DT took a card of mine that they found in the "gallery" and "Cased" it I was soo over joyed when I saw that they had picked my card. WOW!!!!.. So this week I wanted to play along and case this week's card. I thought it was just soo beautiful and simple and soo I had to play along. I choose to use this little lady here from the "Miss Anya Lounge" set.  Does she not look soo cute in her little 'soccer' outfit. We have soo many of our own little ones getting ready for "soccer" so she can be use for all sorts of Birthday card, and layout or even a Congrats card.

I colored her with my Prisma and OMS. and added LOTS of sparkle to her number on her Tshirt as well as her headband. Card stock is PTI. DP is my new 6x6 paper pack of "My Mind Eye's True Blue collections from Claudia & Co. Punch is from M.S. Ribbon is Wal-mart and sticker sentiment is "Cosmo Cricket.

Celebrate with Magnolia

Hi my Craft friends.. I am back with my second card for today.. I told you last night that I had created another card with an Image that I had previously colored, but "never" used before.. Here she is!! Miss Tilda her self from the Magnolia stamp series.

I know that they are some "Die Hard" Magnolia fans out there.. I have always thought they were just the cutest stamps.. ( my little one always wants me to finish drawing her nose an mouth on her.. hehehe. But I think she looks just gorgeous as "is"!! I have had her for over a "year" now.. I saw soo many beautiful creations with all the different stamps and collections, that I wanted to give her a try. So I purchased 2 of  the stamps from 7kidscollegefunds. but of course I had always felt a little intimated to color her. I USE to feel that way.. As I don't any more I take my crafting as "my" own enjoyment; I just love the fact that you ALL love it too. :0)))))

I colored her with my Prisma and OMS. I used the "out the box" technique soo it looks like she is running the oval. I used my Nesti and Cuttlebug for that. Card stock, Ribbon and sentiment is: PTI, DP is my new sample pack form American Crafts "Backyard. I purchased from Claudia and CO. I made the flowers with my cricut. and Forever Young cartridge, and pop dot to make everything pop.

Gorjuss Girl

Hi Everyone.. I have a very late post tonight.. It's been raining All day again today, and my Kids where going a little "stir crazy".. So I had to do several actives with them to keep them busy and occupied. So Now I finally had the last 2 hours to  my self . I was able to get some crafting done :0)...

I have said this before that I have several stamps colored for some times.. Some I have had for quite a while, and every time I clean up my craft area I say that I am going to pull them out and make some cards with them ( even if I not too happy with the finally results. It's just always good to see where you started and just how far you have come.. And sometime how much more we can learn and get better at s;0))). SOO I took my "Gorjuss Girl" and made a card with her. And as I was making her up. I realized that I have not made a card or anything with her before, even though I have had her sitting in my stamp storage for about a  "year" now.

I was just starting to practice coloring hair. and she has the "perfect" hair for coloirng. I colored her with my Prisma and OMS. Card stock is from: PTI, DP and Pearls: Basic Gray, Ribbon: Michael, Flowers: Prima, and pop dots to make Gorjuss pop. I have one more card that I will share tomorrow.. So glad that I am able to show her off. I think she is just "Gorjuss"

Being Fabuous is Hard Work

Ok I'm Back with another card. Say Hi to "Dress Up Marci" from La-La Land Crafts.. As soon as I saw her I had to go and snatch her up. She is soo reminding me of my DD Lynette. I have mention before that my little one is such a "fashionesta" and loves dressing up in my  or her "sisters" shoes and jewelry.

I myself can still remember dressing up in my "grand mother's hats. ( She had the most beautiful hats that she wore to Church on Sunday). I colored Marci with my Prisma and OMS. and for her flower and pearls I used my "sakura" gell pens.

Card Stock is from PTI. I was excited to play with her because I knew just what paper I wanted to use. This Gorgeous set is also from PTI. "Beautiful Blooms". ( don't you LOVE IT. :0)))). Ribbon is from Michael's. and the Sentiment is from the very talented " Paulette over at Create with TLC" ( again I can always go to her when I need a certain sentiment for just about 'any' of my creations. What I love about this card besides that is it just everything about "Spring" .. that It would make a perfect "Mothers Day" card or a Birthday card.

I have a quick and simple card to share with you all today.. This is a Cut File/ Stamp set that I Purchased from "The Cutting Cafe". If you have not seeing any of Regina Easter's creations you are SOO missing out on a lot of fun and Super cute Digi stamps and Cut file. (including SVG and PDF format).

When I say this was quick, simple and "super easy" to put together that is just what I mean. The little "lady bug" and sentiment come ALL ready colored. So you just use a Circe Punch or Nesti (which is what I used to make my card.  Card Stock and Red Polka dot DP  is from PTI, Yellow strip DP is: October Afternoon Thrift Shop. Ribbon I got from Wal-mart. and check out my little lady bug. It is actually a button that I got from the same Ribbon Section from Wal-mart. all I did was cut off the little hook at the bottom and attached it to my card with some glue dots.
I used this week's Mojo Monday Sketch:
