MFT Color Palette Challenge 8 :)

So I know it has been quite sometime since I updated my blog... a lot has been going on and I haven't really been doing anything crafty lately, I do have a few new YouTube videos up but I didn't post them to the blog but you can go check them out on YouTube :)... I'm slowly getting back into crafting! I thought I would enter the MFT Color Palette Challenge :) Here is my card I made

For the card it is a 4-bar size (3 1/2" x 4 7/8") my new fave to make! I used a couple of studio g stamps for the inside sentiment, bats, pumpkin and Dracula and the MFT Mini Banner Day Alphabet Set for the BOO on the front stamped on the MFT Mini Banner Die... The fence is a Martha Stewart punch (not sure of the name?)... and I punched the corners using a EK Success corner punch (again not sure of the name)... I colored everything using my colored pencils and gamsol... that's pretty much it I finished off with my clear sakura star dust pen.. I really like how it turned out especially since I have been crafting a whole lot... Well I hope to be updating and posting more soon, but until I do... Have a great day and Happy Crafting!

Hey everyone, I just wanted to share with you. I am in the process of decluttering my craft area right now. I am being over taken by all of the craft supplies, so I am going to sell some of the items on my Etsy shop. Most all of the items I list are Brand new and have never been used, only a few of the items have been used. I am terrible about buying items when I see them and then when I get home think, why did I buy that? lol :)

Happy Halloween!

Hello again! Ok so I know it is a little early for Halloween cards, well then again I guess not? Fall is my favorite season next to winter and I can not wait for the cooler temperatures! That got me in to the mood to make a Halloween card, so here is what I came up with...  

I used some new stamps I got from Michael's dollar aisle. The all favorite Martha Stewart, drippy goo punch and the Making Memories, Toil & Trouble paper pad. Hope you enjoy, Have a great day and Happy Crafting!

Wow it has been sooo long....

Hi everyone, Hope you have all been doing good... I know it has been forever since I have posted on my blog and to tell you the truth, I just hadn't felt like doing anything... This week I went to my Great Grandmother's funeral, she was 92. Also as you may know if you read my last post, my dog and best friend passed away and it was really hard for me, my parents took me and surprised me with a new puppy. She has been a real comfort and such a fun ball of energy!

Here is a picture of her a couple of nights ago on one of her calmer moods, I got her at the age of 2 months and she is 5 months now. She has grown so fast! I named her Scraps, 1. because she just looks like a scraps and 2. because I love scrapbooking! I have made a mini album with pictures of the first few weeks, I had her and I hope to do a video showing that soon. I am also in the process of decluttering my craft area. I do hope to get back to crafting soon and doing more videos. I just wanted to do a quick update and say hi. I will be posting more soon. Have a great day and Happy Crafting!

New Cards :)

Hey everyone, I know it has been a long time since I have done anything on my blog, but life has just been hitting hard lately... I won't go into all the details but the top two are my dog passed away almost a month ago and that has been really hard to deal with she was my baby and I miss her so much...

 and the second is my grandmother has been in the hospital, thank the Lord she is out now though, but I haven't really been doing much crafting as of lately. But today I wanted to share with you some cards that I have been making over the weekend. I really just wanted to start crafting again so here they are...

The adorable stamp is a digi stamp, I got from PollyCraft a great website that has since closed down, but she was a freebie and I just loved the way she looked. I colored them in with my Spectrum Noir Markers. I wanted to keep the card it self very clean so I just did some random stitching on my sewing machine with matching thread. I then finished it off with a sentiment stamped again in matching ink.... I am really happy with the way these cards turned out. I am going to call these the seasonal fairy's as the blue is Winter, green is Spring, pink is Summer, and orange is Fall... As always have a great day and Happy crafting!

New Card :)

Hey everyone, I just wanted to share a card with you that I just finished...
The image is a digi from The Greeting Farm called "Cupcake Anya" I colored her in using my Promarkers and my new Spectrum Noir markers... I really love the way the coloring came out. I am still trying to get use to the coloring though... I still have a hard time with the bleeding of the ink, but other than that I think she turned out cute :) I got the black open scallop from my favorite Cricut cart, Elegant Edges... the paper is a mixture of Bazzil, Coredinations, and Recollection I wanted the main image to be the focus so I kept the front clean with just a small knot of ribbon a butterfly and a few pearls.... Hope you enjoyed and as always Happy Crafting!

Baby bunny update :)

I got a comment and it reminded me... I totally forgot to mention that the mommy bunny did come back for her babies and for a few nights we did see the babies and mommy hanging out in our front yard :) They were sooo cute!!! The pictures really did not do them justic, they were only about 4" long :) So kawaii!!!!
