love & kisses


Me and my youngest have got the flu...feeling better though...just really worn out now...

I wanted to show some cards I made for my neighbour a while back (she requested some 'flowery' cards)...
I created these two cards using my Pretty Peonies set.

So for both cards I basically stamped the flower on white cardstock, coloured with copics and cut them out (it's an easy image to colour and cut).
I used SRM sentiments on both cards...easy peasy! :)

World Card Making Day is around the corner....

And I have something fun planned for ya'll! :)

Marvy Le Plume Markers

Marvy Le Plume Markers people!!!!! I am SOLD!!! :)
I am so thrilled I got this chance to work with them....I still LOVE my Copics but I am very impressed by the Le Plume quality and the price cannot be beat!!! $2.99 each! I already have my wish list ready!!!

For my first card I used my Noah's Ark stamp....ok...this is THE stamp if you feel like colouring!!! :)
Blending was a breeze and the colours I was sent are just gorgeous!

I added some glossy accent to some of the animal's noses....a little crazy stitching....I LOVE how I can use these markers in a way to resemble water colours.

For my next project I used my Little Miss Mia stamp which is really easy to colour.
I used Pretty Peonies to create the background AND I used the kissing technique thanks to Jennifer's Inspiration Showcase classes! I yet have to throw in the 'resist' part of the steps.

What I did was added pink ink to my peony stamp and then inked up PTI's polka dot stamp with red ink, kissed that directly on my peony stamp and stamped that onto white cardstock. I lOVE how it turned out!

Last but not least is my Halloween tag using my Mr. Smiles stamp (he so makes me smile...everytime!).

I made my own glittery buttons by adding a layer of  Glossy Accents to my orange buttons and then covered them with orange glitter....wait a few seconds, pat the glitter down gently...then wait for it to dry completely.

Do you see the SRM tube filled with my handmade buttons??? :)

Pop on over to the SRM blog because they're giving them away along with some Marvy markers!!! xo

Jane's Doodles blog hop!

Edit: Winner of all three stamp sets announced. Pop on over to the Jane's Doodles blog! :)


I'm soooo EXCITED to introduce our newest stamps sets.....FINALLY!!! :)

I created this card uing our Party Time stamp's a great set for birthday cards, birthday invitations, celebrations....

This 'row of cakes' stamp is one whole piece but you can cut between the cakes and have individual stamps (a tip I learned from Jennifer McGuire). I stamped the sentiment and used Hero Arts white embossing powder.

This stacked presents image would be perfect for Christmas cards too!! :)
I paper pieced the presents using some pattern paper.

I absolutely LOVE this next set....I love flowers and couldn't wait to draw some!! :) This set is called Pretty Peonies. I used SRM stickers on my cards too.

And here's one more because I just LOVE flower stamps!! :)

Besides our FABULOUS DT we've got two AMAZINGLY TALENTED Guest Designers joining us for this hop.....

Jen Gallacher
Wendy Sue Anderson

So I'm keeping this short so you can go ahead with the hoppin!!

eraser stamp


I made another eraser stamp of a tree the other day and here's a very simple card I made using it.

I really like carving with Stabilo erasers...they are nice and's what I used to make this eraser stamp (the stamp is brown from the ink I used - Colorbox's chesnut brown).

Bye for now!

I LOVE beauty products!

I have a confession.....I LOVE beauty products!!!!
Make up, creams, body mists, nail polish, make up and more make up!!! :)

I have combination sensitive skin with some dryness on my checks and I have struggled with finding a cleanser that's going to deep clean but not irritate my skin.......

LOVE this cleanser!!! My face is finally happy! :) I read this and totally agree.

I found this video on how to make your own pore can actually see the gunk on the strip...ewww! :)

I also got my hands on this...

I have recently discovered Sigma on the internet ( tried this last night and my skin is buffed, smooth and happy!!! You have 3 rotating brushes...the pink being the softest for your face. The pink and white for your body and the white bristles are for those rough patches..elbows..
I so LOVE the box too! :) Oh and it's $39.00 US and international shipping is great AND it got her in a jiff! :)
I got a list of make up brushes that I want...the prices are awesome...I have a few Mac brushes and I have to say they cost more than I'd like to pay. I LOVE make up...but don't get me wrong..I don't wear alot...but this is a topic I want to share on the beauty finds...'what's in my make up bag'..etc. Just giving you a heads up! :)

Hope you all have a great weekend!
