Almost Friday!

Yay.  I hate that I wish the week away but I'm pretty excited tomorrow is Friday.  It's been a super busy work week so I'm looking forward to a couple days off.

Made this card with a LOTV cutie.
Colored with Copics, flowers are Wild Orchid, lace is Stamping Up.  Paper is from a DVWV (I think lol!) paper pack.  Hope everyone is having a good week.  I'm entering this in 7 Kids "Anything Goes" Challenge.

Enjoying My Day

I haven't been as crafting productive as I thought I was going to be (one of my downfalls is watching scary movies while I craft and I get distracted heehee).  I'm trying to dedicate more time to challenges and 7 Kid's current challenge is Happy Birthday.  I didn't feel like using a digi so I dug around in my stamps and came across this long forgotten Whipper Snapper stamp.  I don't own a lot of their stamps but this one sure is a cutie!
This is a larger image and I was happy with the card without any embellishments.  Colored with Copics, added some sprinkles to the cupcake and cake with my Ice White Pearl Pen (love these things).  Put some Gold Glitter Liner on the slice of cake and added lacquer to the cherry and the heart on the apron.  Paper is Cupcakes from BasicGrey.  Thanks for stopping by!

Vacation Day

To say it was a bad week would be an understatement so I took a day off today to play in my craft room and cheer myself up!  I made this card with a Wee Stamp digi from the awesome Sylvia Zet from the Playful Kittens set which you can find here.
Colored with Copics, I think this piece of paper I have had literally since I started scrapbooking!  Flowers are all from Wild Orchid.  The butterfly in the upper right hand corner is a die and then I used some Twinkling H2O's on it.  Hard to see but it's got a really pretty shine to it.  Ribbon is from Close to my Heart.  I'm entering this in two challenges, Wild Orchid's Pink and Cream and Stamp and Create's Spring Is Coming. Shocking we are supposed to get more snow tomorrow, I've had just about enough of winter now.  Have a great Friday everyone!

To Cold To Go Outside!

We are lucky enough to have today off but it is absolutely freezing outside and I'm refusing to leave the house!  Mark went to go snow mobiling, I said good luck, dress warm and wear your helmet, I'm staying in my craft room all day.  Hope everyone had a nice weekend, it was Mark and his brothers (he is an identical triplet) birthday last week so we celebrated over the weekend.  We did "luxury" bowling at Foxwoods casino.  It was really nice.  I haven't bowled in about two years since our bowling alley collapsed from all the snow two years ago so I wasn't exactly on fire.  Not that I ever am, just happy to knock down some pins!  The bowling alley at Foxwoods has a full bar and restaurant and it's really nice.  Sunday we were vegetables, Mark worked 60 hours over the weekend for the blizzard and then had an additional three call ins during the week so he was exhausted, so we sat on the couch all day.  It was great!  Ok back to cards heehee
This digi is from Sassy Cheryl's.  Colored with Copics, flowers are all from Wild Orchid, paper is from Close To My Heart.  I love the bright colors if I do so say myself!!  Ok off to find a good horror movie on Netflix and make some cards.  Enjoy your day.

A Little Snow

So it snowed a little bit this weekend, almost three feet.  Sigh.  I live in New England so I understand weather but man the last year and a half we have had some serious weather events.  Here's a couple pics of the snow at the front and back doors of my house.

Mark and I both work for a municipality in the Public Works Department, he's "essential" personnel where usually I am not.  However that means I'm home trying to deal with whatever fun the weather hands us.  So I've never used a snowblower before but Mark gave me a lesson Thursday night so Saturday  afternoon out I go, after some rough starts and a phone call I got the beast running.  So three hours later I had a path from the garage to the road.  Then it died at the bottom of the driveway.  So I had to lug it back up the driveway.  I don't know if I killed it or not.  Mark's been at work since Friday morning, it's now Sunday night I'm hoping he comes home soon.  I shoveled enough so I think he can at least get in the driveway.  Stupid snow.  Ok on to happier things, being snowed in I did get some crafting done!
This is an oldie but goodie from Penny Black.  Love anything with a lady bug on it.  I had to make some bright and cheery since I only see white everywhere out the window.  Colored with Copics added lacquer to the little bug.  Hope everyone had a nice weekend.

Waiting For The Super Bowl

We are getting ready to watch "Puppy Bowl" on the Animal Planet and then patiently wait for the Super Bowl.  I'm a Miami Dolphins fan so I've never had the chance to get excited about the Super Bowl haha.  I used a cute digi from Stamp Fairy, Patches In Love for this card.
Paper is Doodlebug I think.  I added laquer to the hearts, colored with Copics.  I have to admit I think Valentine's is dumb but every else seems to get really excited about it and there are the cutest Valentine images!!  Hope everyone is enjoying their Sunday.  Happy Super Bowl Sunday!!

Ribbons Challenge

Happy Saturday!  It's been cold and super windy.  We lost power again all day Thursday, we had  a storm come through Thursday and once again we had trees down all over the place.  Crazy weather lately.  Luckily the power came back on late Thursday.  Hope everyone is having a good week.  I made a couple cards today, this one I'm entering in High Hopes Ribbons Challenge.  I think I have had this piece of paper in my stash for years!
I colored this cutey with Copics added some Stickles to the flowers.  I'm off to try to get another card done - have a great weekend!
