Hi Cupcake!!!

Good Morning! Well it's been a busy week again, what's new. But it's Friday, and things are slowing down. I made this card for a Whimsy Jar Swap over on SCS. This is the first one I've been involved with and it was FUN!!! I already rec'd my jar and loved everything in it, she even put hellokitty stickers in it for me. So, I'm mailing my jar today, and hopefully she will like it. I used the sketch from Taylored Expression's weekly cupcake challenge. This sketch is from a couple of weeks ago, but I really liked it, so here it is!!!!
I know, I know, I used pink AGAIN, but oh well!!! So let me know what you think, I love hearing from you guys.

House Mouse Gift Box

Well Hello All!!!! I know I've been missing for awhile. LIFE!! Sometimes it's really annoying. Oh well, it seems to be calming down for a second. So, I finally got a chance to actually do something that I wanted to do, and it was the house mouse challenge for this week-anything but a card. If you haven't checked this out, you really should. They are alot of fun. This is only the second one I've been able to participate in, but I love it. Here is the link. Ok, so I really had to think about this one, because I haven't made many "other" things. I was looking through my stash of stuff and found these gable boxes, so I thought I'd try these. I've had these since probably my son was born-OMG-way too long to have things in my stash without using them. I'm really bad about buying things and not using them. My son is 9 by the way. So I started by painting the box, it was white. I just used Joann's brand paint in Real Green. The paper I used is from the DCWV christmas stack from last year. Cardstock is DCWV-Red. The stamp is House Mouse "Having a Ball", I colored with prismacolor pencils, and put some stickles in crystal on the hat, and around the bottom. I really like the way it turned out. OH yeah, I did use a coat of glitter paint over the green. I just found that at Michael's. So, what do you think? Love hearing from you guys. I really will try to post more this week.

Fun Stuff

Ok, now that I've showed you what we've been making, onto the FUN stuff. I just got a quad, and went riding yesterday. I've been wanting one of these for a few years now, and we came across a great deal, so I finally got it. Yeah me!!!!! So I thought I'd share a few pictures. We went to what used to be the lake, to ride. The lake is so far down, that all of this area is dry. While it's not good for the lake, we had fun. This is me and my husband(he's teaching me how to ride it). Although he insisted I wear a helmet, you can see that he doesn't think he needs one. We'll have to change that. And there's me, not doing to bad!!! I'm always so afraid to try things, and then I get on there and wonder what the problem ever was, because I had sooo much fun. The top picture is Ashlee on the quad. This was her first time on one too, and she didn't want to give it back-how rude!!!!! The other 3 pictures are the Kids-hehe playing on their bikes, Jesse is 9, and Sabrina is 12, and then there's Daniel-the biggest kid of all. Thanks for looking at our family fun.

Christmas make n take

A couple of weekends ago my daughter Sabrina and I went to our LSS to a Christmas make and take. We had SO much fun. Sabrina is 12 and loves to scrap and stamp with me. We have a lot of fun, so I thought I would share the pictures of what we made. We did make one halloween project, it is the cutest. We used badge holders, and made mini pages to go inside. The little christmas cottage was lots of fun too. We used coaster to make the base of the house. The circle on the back is for a picture. Sabrina is sending all of these things to her grandmas for christmas. The last pictures are a mini book we made, again we used coasters, and then just paper in the middle. All in all it was a great day, lots of fun for me and Sabrina. Hope you like them, thanks for looking.

Halloween Witch

WOW!!! It's been a really long time since I've posted. We've been extremely busy as usual!!! So for my first posting this is a Halloween card I made for the sketch challenge #195 on Splitcoast. I'm a few behind(nothing new). Anyway, I made a comment last time that I needed to get more halloween paper, and I've done it. So, I decided to make this sketch into a Halloween card. I really like that way it turned out. I got a clear Halloween stamps set at my LSS, it is by making memories, and I love it!!! I wasn't impressed with the witch until I put my trusty glitter glue all over her dots. The jewels are from Michael's in the orange and black(love these too). The ribbon is absolutely adorable. I don't know if you can see it very well, but it is purple with witches feet on it. I got it from michael's. Hope you like it, and thanks for looking.
