Sorry about the late post today...I had to volunteer for Emily's swim class today, so my scrappin' time was limited. Hopefully this weekend I can spend some quality time in my scraproom, and get some cards done. 

Here are the details for todays card:
Paper, buttons,ribbon and flowers are all Making Memories-Chloe's Closet. I just love this collection-it's almost all gone and I'm going to miss it. 
Tilda is of course a Magnolia and I got her from Kelly. :O) I colored her in with my copics. I also cut her out and pop dotted her. I made the circles with my nesties and pop dotted them too. 
The 'laughs' transfer is CTMH
It's hard to see but i also used my SU! scallop border punch on the bottom. 
Thanks for looking and have a great TGIF!

Think Pink

We had a very busy weekend this weekend. My husband had to work Saturday and Sunday. He was working on the plant that we own where we are going to make our dog treats. He had a business partner in from out of town who ended up sleeping over Saturday night. Which is stressful for me because I suffer from occassional-CHAOS- "can't have anyone over syndrome" other words...most of the time my house is too messy to have people over! lol
So I was busy cleaning up and managing the kids most of I was responsible for making sure the kids received a healthy dose of fun as well. No problem!
Plus I had to take all the kids to swim lessons on Saturday and then all the kids to mass on Sunday...needless to say...I'm worn out!
I finally got about an hour to myself this afternoon so I could rewatch a past LOST episode while happily stamping away. :O)

So I made this card especially for my mom, so she knows I'm thinking about her.
Here are the details:
Paper is Karen Foster Design-Birds&Blooms
Coordinating Cardstock and Wide Satin Ribbon is retired SU! Pomegranate
Image is Magnolia. I colored Tilda in with my copic markers
The Love charm is Close To My Heart
The pewter flowers are from my LSS
Brads are Close To My Heart
I also used my SU! scallop punch, Martha Stewart Border Punch and 
Martha Stewart Leaf Branch Punch
Oh and I also used my nesties to make the rectangles. 

Thanks for looking and have a great rest of the weekend. :O)

Hello. :O)
It's Monday already...another week starting. Here in Calgary,Alberta it's Family Day-a holiday reserved for family rest and relaxation. 
I had to work today-doing book work for our small business we own. But I was able to sneak into my craft room and quickly put together a card for today. And then I'm out the door with the kids to enjoy the rest of the day-what's left of it!

Here are the details for today's card:
Stamp is Magnolia-Edwin. I colored him in with my copics. Have I told you how much I love my copics? After I colored in with my copics I went back over Edwon's shirt with my blender pen to give his shirt some texture.
Paper is CTMH-StarDust
Twill Ribbon/Flexi-tag/buttons/brads and hemp are all CTMH. 
The flex-tag is really cool. It's new this season. It's made out of a rubbery plastic and is flexible. It also has a sticky backing to it for easy adhering. 

Thanks for looking and have a great day!

I also just have to tell you about the little metal frame on my card. 
Matty my youngest was getting into trouble most days. He got into my china cabinet where I stowed my left over Christmas Crackers...I had about four left over from Christmas 2008. Anyways, he broke open all of them and and was playing with the little cheap gifts, while wearing several of the paper hats! lol 
I was kinda upset until I noticed the little metal frame and thought, 
"yeah! I can use that on my's perfect!"
So I added some dimensional foam to the back and attached it to my card...voila-done!

Here are the complete details for today's card:
Paper is Basic Grey-Bittersweet & Urban Prairie
Brads are CTMH
Flowers are Prima
Sentiment is CTMH-For Every Occasion
