Birthday Cupcakes

Good morning!
Today I am sharing a fun birthday card with you all.
I am loving all the fun stamps I get to play with from Just for Fun Stamps,
and I used up some of my scraps from my scrap bin for this one! 

The cupcakes were stamped with distress ink, and then I added a little bit of glitter embossing 
to them for a tiny bit of sparkle. 
I hope you all have a happy and creative weekend. 
I will be at work,
but I will be thinking up my next creative endeavour to share with you all.

Stocking card

Good morning bloggy friends,
Christmas is fast approaching, I hope you all have your shopping done,
and are getting to enjoy some time with your families!

This year I am lucky enough to have my parents staying with me for 7 weeks,
which includes Christmas and New Years.
Mom and I have been making ornaments, and planning our
baking list!
Today I want to share with you a little card I made. 
I have been so fortunate to be a part of the design team at Just For Fun Stamps,
and this fun stocking stamp.
I colored it up using my watercolor pencils,
and attached it to some leftover pieces of Christmas paper. 
I am loving the sewn crazy quilted look of the paper with zentangle of the stocking!

Merry Christmas to you all! 
Have a wonderful time with friends and family!

December Daily

Sooooo on November 30th my friend Angie and I decided that we were going to do some "quick" December Daily's. 
Is there such a thing??
Well we did our best, and spent the next two days putting together 
our "quickie" books.

Here are some looks into the blank pages.
Hope you are somehow documenting your December, and your life in general.

Most of my papers were not double sided, so I cut the same paper for front and back and then I 
used my sewing machine to sew them together.
On one of the days I added a place to slip a tag between the sewing.
There is a lot of yummy good pages and papers. 
I love the uniqueness of each page, and am having fun documenting my time with my parents.

It's December!
It's December!
Did you hear me?? It's December!
And there are only three weeks until Christmas!
Have you found your joy this season?
I know I'm loving this amazing joy stamp from Just for fun stamps.
It's a big stamp, and it leaves a great impression.
If you have some last minute cards to make, get to steppin!

Fall tag

It's pretty hard to believe that it's already Thanksgiving week.
I have been a working fool, and have not had much time to share any creations or artwork.
However, I did teach my monthly 12 tags of 2015 class, and this was my take on Tim's tag!
I used an assortment of distress products to create the background, and do the stamping.
For the leaf I used my watercolor pencils to color it's a bright autumn orange. 
A quick addition of some vintage buttons and the die cut "Discover"
to finish off this fun and beautiful tag.  

I hope you all are having a wonderful fall, and have an amazing Thanksgiving.
I will be working, and then having dinner with my hubby.
I may do a tiny bit of shopping after that.

Fall leaves

Who loves them like I love them??
Let me see your hands raised up high!
Do you love to color them, and even draw them?
Well maybe not draw them so much as color them!
Then these stamps from just for fun stamps are for you! 
See all those fabulous nooks and crannies?
See all the places to put different colors and goodness?
Yep, me too,
and plus since we don't really get falling fall leaves here in southern Arizona,
I have to sometimes live vicariously through my art!
I see falling leaves in my card, and that makes me happy!

How about you, are you getting falling leaves? 
Or have you moved on to winter and snow?

Happy Fall and Thanksgiving to you all out there!

Windows into my art journal

I had the distinct pleasure of getting to attend another of Dina Wakley's a few month ago.
I just love her style, 
and every class has been fun and different. 

For this class we created these pages with little windows to look thru to the opposing page.

And the opposite side!
And here is the page wide open
And here are the flowers close up! 

What an amazing idea! to put the windows on the pages,

I think I'd like to try this again and do "Window's to my Soul"
Perhaps in the future you will see this from me! 
Have a blessed week!
