OH Happy DAY!

I have been having one of those days. Not the kind where my kids are driving me crazy; but the kind where I am LAZY! I blame the weather; as we are having our first cool days, and it feels like a snug on down kind of day.

I felt like my MOJO had got up and gone. And then...

I came across Dawn's Color challenge! Oh BLISS!
Not only did I find my MOJO, but I managed to make in my mind a wonderfully balanced card. It has glitz, it has soft ruffles, clean lines& modern pattern. The very best thing about this card; I broke into my new embeli's from MM! I have been dying for an excuse to crack them open!

Don't you just love the happy little cardinal? ~smiles~
I hope to see your creations with this color challenge too!


It's all in the Ingredients:
Paper: Brazill kisses, PTI cream, kraft, American craft DP
Stamps: PTI Vintage labels, Signature Christmas
Ink:PTI Dark Chocolate, Vintage cream
Embellishments: MM Mistletoe glitter chip board, Offray sheer ribbon, Kaiser bling, Fiskars effervescent border punch

A bit of this and that...

First off lets just say it was Happy Mail day! I got my Tax refund, and more important my new PTI order!

I have seen some super cute new stamps that I covet by Denami, but I have not narrowed down my choices yet! If you want a chance to win yourself some yuppy stamps hop on over to the Denami Blog, they have a chance to win $50, now that gets you quite a few of their lovelies!

Now can I complain?


UGH, admittedly trying to stamp with twins is near impossible; but today they have been their absolute worst!

They have dumped a bottle of shampoo into the toilet, and then used the toilet brush to clean the toilet(unfortunately the base too!)

Then they broke a pkg of rice noodles open, all over the house, too big to vaccum, and near impossible to find in shag carpet.

I know what your thinking.. watch them and none of this will happen.

Well, while I was sitting with them watching a video... they managed to open very quietly, my daughters back pack, get out her markers, and colour the couch! Yes I was sitting on the couch! That is how fast they are!

So I have spent the last hour scrubbing the couch clean and wishing for a new life.

When I looked up to see, Leila had pulled her nappie off and rolled poo balls in my carpet. All of this while I am in the room! Can you imagine what they would do if I left the room?

Better Days!

World Card Making Day

Hi Ya!
How is everyone doing?
I am so excited to share with you world card day plans! I am going to spend the morning with my children; and then I am going to get busy! I have all sorts of wonderful new purchases just waiting to be used.
As part of my celebration of World Card making Day, I am going to commit to not purchasing more then $30 each month; until New Years.
I know some of you will be thinking that is a lot of money, others will be like me thinking it is impossible! I am limiting myself; for 2 reasons. The first being obviously currently not having a job, my budget is limited. But the more important reason is that I have so so so many wonderful goodies that have yet to be used. By not buying anything, i hope to spend more time utilizing my goodies already in my arsenal!
Do you too have this problem?
How do you plan to resolve it?
Let's go play with our paper ladies!

Hey all! Another Moxie Fab challenge!

I hope you have a wonderful day!

MOxie FAB- Something stamped

This first photo gives you an idea of what the card looks like up close! Unfortunately my camera is acting up and you can not get a true idea of the stamping done.

This next photo is a better idea of the stamping done. First I stamped with my SU! flourish, with Versa Mark on PTI Rasperry Fizz. Then I used 2 darling Pink Cat snowflakes one in Fresh Snow and the other in Red. I added a bit of bling to the centers, stickles and Kaiser red bling.

The center snowflake is a tripple layer, bottom Marvey blue snowflake punch, middle Marvey Pink snowflake punch, and top layer is MS snowflake punch. I also treated these with stickles and MME bling.

The edge punch is my newest treasure, it is EK success Snawflake.

Have a Fab Day!


It's all in the Ingredients:

Paper: PTI raspberry fizz, sweet blush, pure poppy

Stamps: Pink Cat- snowflakes and sentiment, SU! baroque motif

Ink- PTI pure poppy, rasperry fizz, fresh snow, Versamark

Embellishments: MS snowflake punch, SU! circle punch, EK success snowflake border punch, Marvey mega and large snowflake punches, Kaiser red bling, Stickles Icicle, Star Dust, white gel pen

Moxie FAB

Don't you just hate computer and camera problems? They always happen for me at the worst time!

Any how i made this card first by stamping Dawn McVey's Damask design, on Sweet Blush in Raspberry fizz. Then I added double sided tape on top in a plaid pattern. And then I added glitter to the tape to make a sheer plaid.

The circle is Raspberry Fizz paper, and I stamped a portion of one of PTI's large Damask images with Fresh Snow. I then stamped the sentiment in PTI's Enchanted Evening. I just love that name don't you? LOL

I will try to load a better photo tomorrow, after I borrow a friends camera, mine is FINISHED! LOL

It's all in the Ingredients:
Paper: PTI sweet blush, raspberry fizz, enchanted evening
Stamps:PTI Damask
Ink: PTI Raspberry Fizz, Fresh Snow, Enchanted Evening
Embellishments: SU! 1 3/8 cirlce punch, PTI satin ribbon Enchanted Evening, foam tape, double sided stick tape, warm highlights glitter
