Those EYES


You got we with those eyes, should be the saying in our house. My little guy knows how to use those eyes against his sweet mom. LOL! Not to mention that he has eyelashes that most women would kill for, and I love.

Cupcake Anyone?

Anyone for a low fat treat....that will not put weight on your thighs.



By the way still working on my New Years Resolutions, and I have lost 10Ilbs with the help of Weight Watchers. My sister & best friend joined together and this is the end of our fourth week. Yeah! now we both want to be at goal weight, we just keep at it. It seems slow at first but it is working.



Have a great evening.

Christmas in July


I love this set Christmas Circles and the new Reece Collection from The Angel Company. I found this card layout on a Sheet load of Cards and I just fell in love with it. You can create a card so quickly and it has a lot of impact.
Hope everyone likes it, if so leave me a comment. I just love it when you do. Then I know that I am not talking to my self in cyber space. LOL!
Hugs, and Blessings.

Finished Seminar Projects

Finished these two projects today, I love the one with all the tags. That is really how I prefer to do my journaling (hidden). I know how important it is to do journaling in your our handwriting but I hate my handwriting. Both my sisters, my mother and father had gorgeous script writing, mine looks like chicken scratch. But it is not as bad as my hubby. LOL!

Stamps: Script Bet
Paper Collection: Cha Cha
Ribbon: Cha Cha & Black & White




No, stamps used just paper collection Cha Cha.


Hope everyone had a safe and wonderful holiday.

Diamond Dust Technique

I wish you could see the shimmer in the background. This is called Diamond Dust technique and it is quite fun, I hardly every play with my Kaleidoscope ink pad. I really enjoy using iridescent embossing powder. It gives the project such a finished feel for me.

Stamps: Autumn Swirls

Ink: K-Pad Autumn Breeze and Versamark

Embellishments: Miss Moxie hardware from TAC

Our family will be celebrating this 4th of July with our family and friends appreciating what we have been given.


Thank you to every person that has served in any branch of the armed forces. WE GREATLY APPRECIATE YOU! And to all the police, EMT and firemen that keep us safe in our towns and cities. God Bless You.

Oz-some sketch


I saw this sketch on Heather Scott's blog http://stampez.typepad.com/ and just had to play, I also challenged myself to just different colors. I like the sketch, still not sure on the card, and not crazy about the colors. LOL!
I am going to have to play with this one a little more.
