It's been almost a year since I've been on here. I've missed seeing everyone and reading their posts! For everyone who wants to snoop just go visit WOYWW over at Julia’s Stamping Ground

OK.  Part of the reason I haven't been here, is that I haven't taken the time to post or clean!  So now I'm going to make time and start posting like a good girl!  But I haven't started the cleaning.  So I am actually going to show you the pile of mess in my craft area.  You have to step around piles to get the desk chair to get to the table to work.  It's really like a ballet dance to get there!  Anyway, hopefully showing you all my shameful mess will help commit me to clean it up and show you all a really nice space - or al least a good start at a nice space - might take several weeks!  So take a look at my mess and come back next week to see the improvement.  Hopefully finding the improvements won't be as difficult as those puzzles on finding the differences between the pictures!


Thanks for stopping by.  I love reading your comments!!

More Playful AI People

Here's another card for the  Art Impression "Playful People" Challenge

I used the stamp set Sally Swimmer Set I colored using my Copic markers.   I made a background using distressed inks. I really like adding dimensions to my cards, so I fussy cut the float and fins & added Wink of Stella.  Added a couple of glitter enamel dots.  Simple but cute! .

Here's the final result from the front:

Art Impression "Playful People" Challenge

I LOVE Art Impressions stamps, so I made this one for the Art Impression "Playful People" Challenge.  Nothing can be more fun then hanging with your peeps - and shopping!!!

I used the stamp set Shoppers Front.  I colored using my Copic markers.   I made a background using distressed inks.  I fussy cut the stamp so the girls would pop.  To make it pop even more, I stamped, colored and cut out the card again.  I also went over the car with clear Wink of Stella to make the car sparkly.  I also added some acetate paper before the popped up car for the windshield and added Glossy Accents to the headlights to make them glow.

Here's the final result:

Or from the side view:

Thanks for stopping by.  Have a great day!

It's been another very busy week. So many plans and so many things undone!  Another week where I planned to go play in my craft room, and never made it.  So, here’s my desk – several things in progress and nothing complete.  LOL  But the good thing is I get to check out everyone else’s desk by visiting WOYWW over at Julia’s Stamping Ground

Here's my desk.

I do have a another card for my class at the Craft Inn.  This is the second card.  Again it's made with Dare 2B Artzy stamps and dies and Die-namics for the background.  Here's my card.

Dare 2B Artzy

I made this card using the new cat stamps from Dare 2B Artzy.  I bought these stamps from the Craft Inn - I GREAT craft shop here in town.   I will be teaching how to make this card on Tuesday August 23 & Friday August 26.

The stamp set is Dare 2B Atzy and the background was made using  Die-namics Striped Sentiment Strip Cover-Up die.  All these things can be found at The Craft Inn.  I have so much fun teaching classes at the Craft Inn.  I'll be showing the two other cards for the class later this week!

Have a great day - and if you are near or in Louisville come check out the Craft Inn at the new location - 1917 Blankenbaker Pkwy, Louisville, KY 40299.  I hope to see you there!

Thanks for stopping by!
