New Business

Wanted to share some pictures with everyone to help explain some of my absence in the past several months.

First I had a total hip replacement in June and Tuesday of this week I opened a family store in the small town where I live and my niece and I are working it.  We had help from nephew and his wife too.  They are gone now so she and I have it all alone now.  So very long hours and hurting feet at the end of the day.

I moved all my card making and scrapbooking things here and will be selling some supplies and having classes.  Also selling my card as well.

Here are the pics.  Enjoy and so excited to finally get this endeavor up and going.

Digi Doodle Shop’s Best Challenge #19

First thing I want to do is thank all our participates of our challenges.  We have more and more each week and we are loving it. 

Thank you !!!!!!!!

This week’s challenge was an impossible one for me.  The challenge is to use your favorite stamp.  Out of all of the wonderful stamps in Digi Doodle Shop,  to have a favorite is not possible.  I heard so many of the Digi Doodle Shop’s Best design team say the same thing.   So I just picked one I loved and made this card with it.


I took the picture outside in the HOT sunshine.  I love the flowers and the shadow they made on the card.

I colored the card with my Copic markers and cut the image and the pattern paper with my rectangle deckle nestie.  It is my favorite of the nestibilities that I have.

Digi Doodle Shop is having a great special this month and I want to invite  everyone to jump on over there and take advantage of this great special.



so here are the links

Digi Doodle Shop’s Best Challenge # 18

The challenge this week is, Punch Me, create using punches or die cuts.  I can’t wait to see what all the other DT have created.

Thank you butterfly # 18

I used one of the single butterflies from the set of Butterfly and Cherry Background paper.  I colored with my Copic Markers.  I used the Spellbinder die cuts #1 in graduated sizes and used designer paper from PTI and cards stock from SU.  I did do something different here and that is to use my white gel pen to make accenting dots.  I love the dimension that this gives.   Hope you all enjoy !!!! 

Check out the other Design Team’s creations and link your creations so that we can enjoy them and leave you some love!

Cards to find my MOJO

Yesterday I forced myself to create something.  I had these 2  beautiful stamps from Digi Doodle Shop already colored with my Copics  and thought a piece of my new October Afternoon “Fly A Kite”  paper looked good with them.  So I made 2 cards using the same papers.  The polka dot dolie and square I cut with my Cricut using Papertrey Ink “Bitty Dot Basics”.  Cards are 4 1/4 X  4 1/2

So I do believe my mojo is on its way back.

Button, Button, who has the Button ?

After some discouraging time this week with the Digi Doodle Shop having technical problems, it is finally open for business as usual.  Judy is so very sorry for all the inconveniences this caused her customers and fans.  Her wonderful newsletter didn’t go out on Monday so the June specials are surprises.  I have a feeling it might have something to do with the men in our lives.  And I also think there is another Summer Sets Special.  

I want to say thank you so very much Doreen and Sarah for being wonderful Guest Designers.  Your creations are such show pieces.  Thank you for sharing your talents and creativity with us this past month. 
Our challenge this week is a creation with a button or buttons on it.  One of my favorite things to use.  And of course I had a wonderful stamp to work with too.  Joy, Judy’s mother, created this wonderful rooster.  I colored him with my Copic Markers and used papers and buttons from my stash.  The buttons I connected with a piece of twine from my stash and used glue dots on the back
Rooster #7
Thank you everyone who participated in our blog hop last week.  I enjoyed visiting everyone’s blog and looking at their creations.  So let us see what you can do with buttons this week.  Go on over to Digi Doodle Shop’s Best and check out everyone else’s creations and then get yours all linked up.  Remember the winner all are considered for Guest Designer.

It’s Wednesday…..

So that means WOYWWACI do enjoy snooping and looking at everyone’s work space.  Mine is not very interesting lately because my mojo for right now is gone and haven’t made in any thing in several days.  I finally got the wonder paper from October Afternoon – Thift Shop and Fly a Kite and now I am in a slump…. here are a few shots of my craft room this morning.

Sketch Girl Challenge #19

SG19 copyAnother great sketch from  Leigh Ann for her Sketch Girl Challenges .  Her sketches are just too much fun to play with. 

We also have a great sponsor for this sketch.  Sew Many Cards is a digital stamp store.


Here is a little bit more from the owner of Sew Many Cards:
My name is Angela and I own Sew Many Cards. I have a husband, an almost 10year old daughter, a two year old son, and a dog/puppy: Hershey. The images of Sew Many Cards came from a dream that my husband had of a group of animals that were """  SEWN Together"  with patches and stitching, hence the name, which he also came up with. You will find that every image in the Sew Many Cards collection has patches and stitching, even the ones that are not animals. I love to draw and almost every image is either an inspiration from my family or a request from my great customers and design team, so please ask if you need something specific or would like to request something be made. You can contact me at

For my card I used the cute image of  Duncan with Owen.  The images just says to me “I love you this much” and I was thinking about Father’s Day . 

SG #19

I colored Duncan and Owen with my Copic Markers and cut them out using my deckle rectangle nestie.  The card base is SU More Mustard and the patterned paper is from Making Memories – Just Chilling 6X6 pack.    The sentiment I created and printed.  I applied Old Paper-Ranger Distressed Ink around all edges. 

So now it is your turn to create a card or creation using Leigh Ann’s sketch # 19 and then link it up and lets us see your creation and good luck with winning the great images from Sew Many Cards.

For inspiration go on over and check out the great creations some of the DT made for you this time.

God Bless America – Operation Write Home Blog Hop


Operation Write Home is having this blog hop this weekend so that in some small way we can show our appreciation and admiration to all those who have and are serving our country.  Our freedom does NOT come cheap or easy.  Everyday that price is paid for us.    Words are just not enough to convey my thanks for all that has been done and will continue to be done for OUR freedom.


Our red, white, and blue flag with that lonely figure looking off in the distance with thoughts of that loved one who is away from her.  What a sacrifice both are making for me and for you.

I will be sending this card to one  person who comments on my blog during the blog hop.  If you would like to have this card please let me know when you comment and I will draw a winner at the end of blog hop and will mail it to you.

NOW THE NEXT ONE ON THE BLOG HOP IS Stephanie.  And if you get lost along the way here is the starting point again….. Operation Write Home.

Operation Write Home's Mission is -
To support our nation’s armed forces by sending blank greeting cards to write home on, as well as cards of gratitude to encourage them.

Family Pride
On this card I used 2 of Digi Doodle Shop Stamps.  I used the Rooster and the Hens and Chicks.  I love watching little chicks and the hens watching out for them.  They are just too cute and Judy’s mom, Joy, sure has created them so life like.  I colored them with my Copic Markers and stamped the background with the PTI background stamp, geographic backgrounds.  I thought it looked like chicken wire.  The sentiment I created on my computer.
