The Stamping Boutique Alice In Wonderland Digital Stamps

Have you seen these amazing digis??

Aren't these adorable?  You can purchase them here from The Stamping Boutique.  I hadn't seen the new Alice In Wonderland until recently.  I took a bus to New York City and they showed the movie, normally I sleep all the way there but I was amazed by the movie!!  Couldn't stop watching.  We would love to see what you can create with these stamps.

I definitely have a thing for these cutie mice.
Colored with Copics, the paper is Close To My Heart.  All the flowers are Wild Orchid.  I'm entering this in two challenges, Cute Card Thursday's You're A Gem and Wild Orchid's Creature Comforts.  Didn't hear anything from our showing today and I don't think they were here very long.  Sigh....beginning to think we will never move!  Hope everyone had a good weekend tomorrow is back to Monday.

Bugaboo Cutie

I love these adorable Sunbonnet girls!
I colored her with Copics, all the flowers are from Wild Orchid.  I'm entering this in Stamp And Create's "Anything Goes" Challenge.  This is the first time participating in their challenge I didn't know they had one!  Still trying to sell our house, we have a showing tomorrow so my daughter pitched in and helped me clean like a lunatic lol!  I'm a neat freak to begin with (I drive my family nuts) but I go into overdrive when I know we have a showing.  I've been "pinning" pictures and ideas on my Pinterest account for my future craft room if we ever sell and get to move!  Cross your fingers for us if you would.  Hope everyone is having a nice Saturday!

Meljen Cutie

I was looking through my digis the other day and realized that I don't think I have ever used this cutie!
Colored with Copics, I have had this one lone piece of paper forever and finally decided I needed to use it!  I'm still being good about not buying any new paper, I went to The Inspiration Station tonight and resisted completely!  I bought three Magnolia's instead.  Check out Meljen's Designs Melissa has some of the cutest images.  Yay for Friday I swear this felt like the longest week every.  Have a good weekend.

Another Penny Black

The past two weeks I've definitely rediscovered my love of my Penny Black stamps!
This beauty is colored in Copics, the floral paper is Doodlebug, not sure about the stripe it was in my stash.  Flowers are all from Wild Orchid.  I'm entering this in the Penny Black challenge "Crafty Bargains".  My bargain is the ribbon (which unfortunately you can barely see).  Found it on clearance at Michael's, I went in for something totally different and found all this ribbon on clearance.  Hope everyone had a nice weekend.  I spent most of yesterday afternoon/evening parked in front of the tv watching the Barrett Jackson auction, it's something I look forwared to every year.  The brought back reserve auctions this year and there were some amazing cars that went for amazing money!!  Happy Sunday.

Another Wee Suzi

I cannot get enough of this image - just love this one.

Colored with Copics, flowers are all from Wild Orchid.  The corner punch is from Marianne Creatables.  When we cleaned out my grams house after she passed I came across a bunch of lace and ribbon and this pretty pink ribbon was part of that - very dainty.  Hope everyone is having a good weekend it is soooooo cold here today.  We've been really spoiled with a mild winter so far so I forget how cold it should be.  Good thing I'm going to be a couch bum today watching football.  Hugs!!

Penny Black Hedgies

I have ignored my Penny Black stamps lately so I pulled this cutie out.
I'm entering this is in Penny Black's latest challenge "Anything Goes".  Colored with Copics, added Stickles to the pink part of the heart puzzle.  The heart punch is a Martha Stewart punch.  Happy it's Saturday!  Going to try to get some cards doen I had a couple requests at work for Valentine cards.  We have some family coming over to watch the Pats game tonight.  I've always been a Dolphins fan and it's been a reeeeeeeeeally long time since things have gone well for us lol!  So I'm looking forward to watching the game because it doesn't matter to me who wins!  Shhh don't tell the rest of the people in my house because after all I live in New England so probably should be hoping the Pats win. heehee

Wee Suzi Silver Fairy

Another beauty from Sylvia Zet!  You can find this gorgeous digi here.

I've been trying to stick to picking my papers frist and then coloring from there.  This paper I have had in my stash for years and I was determined to use it.  Flowers are from Wild Orchid, colored with Copics.  Well I made in through Tuesday, totally exhausted today I woke up in the middle of the night because the dog was barking only I think it was a dream because when I got up to check on him he was sound asleep!  Hopefully tonight I will get some sleep.  Happy Tuesday!

Lili of the Valley

Another new stamp to me!  Love these little girls.

If you haven't checked out Lili of the Valley you should!  Colored with Copics.  Flowers are all from Wild Orchid. I'm entering this in two challenges Wild Orchid's "Anything Goes" and Cute Card Thursday's "What's New".   It was a rough Monday today did not want to get out of bed but I got through it glad to be home from work though.  Hope everyone had a good start to their week.

Lili of the Valley Emma

I love the Lili of the Valley stamps but until recently I only bought the cute critters.  I ordered a few of the Emma's and I absolutely love them!  Colored this cutie with Copics.  Paper is two completely random pieces that I found and thought they worked ok together.  I've been trying to pick my paper first and then stamp my image.  I always stamped my image, colored and then spent forever trying to pick paper out to go with it.  I color a lot on my break at work so I've been cutting off a small piece of the paper and bring it with me and then coloring from there.  Working much better for me!  Also I'm trying to use the tons of paper I have instead of buying new so I just grab a piece and go!

Hope everyone is having a good week.

The Stamping Boutique Challenge 23

The Stamping Boutique's latest challenge is up!   Check it out here.  Here are the rules!
Twelve...yep....12....we have just entered into 2012 and I thought it would be fun to celebrate it!!
So here is what you need to do for this challenge and don't let it scare you away...a challenge is a challenge for a reason right?! To challenge you!!! can do this 3 different ways
1. simply us the number 12 on your project in some way or other
2. use twelve elements on your LESS and no MORE than twelve(DP, embellishments, CS, image, sentiment...all those things will count toward your twelve)
3. use twelve on 1 thing (twelve different DP' would be fun to try ;-)....12 of the same embellishments, etc)
Here's my card.

My 12 was the 12 heart brads along the side.  Colored with Copics, I just love the AJ and Audrey line.  Hope everyone is having a good week so far can't believe it's a new year.

Welcome 2012!

I didn't make it until midnight to ring in the new year but I'm happy about 2012.  I'm hoping things will turn around for our house sale/purchase! 

Fluffles still remains one of my favorite lines of stamps!  Colored with Copics, finally used one of the doilies I've had in a box forever.  I hope everyone had a great New Year's.  I'm headed to my favorite LSS the Inspiration Station in Stafford, CT they are having a sale on Copics and I'd so much rather buy from Debbie then some online store.  Have a great day!
