~ A Whole New Look ~

Good morning!

No doubt, if you have been here before, you can see that I have not only rearranged the furniture, I painted as well!    What do you think of my new look?

Sadly, I have to tell you that I am still fighting this nasty cold.   I was telling Judy (StampingQueenJAR) yesterday, I have coughed up a lung, blown the nose off my face and sneezed my fool head off.   But!, this cold makes me sound british when I speak! LOL  Sooooooo… ‘Allo!

My stamping mojo and ability is being affected, too.   I woke up to today’s Technique Lover’s Challenge (cut it out!)…. knowing I needed a valentine.    My brain just couldn’t wrap around the challenge and being masking impaired, I am really not that happy with my results:


I printed the computer generated  sentiment on pixie pink cardstock.    Made a top mat with the flowers.. used an oval nestie to trace an oval in the appropriate place, then used my craft knife to cut the frame.

Here are the deets:

Stamps:  Our Daily Bread Designs:  I am the Way (flowers) and computer generated sentiment

Colors: Kiwi Kiss, Pink Pirouette, GP White

Ink: Brilliance Graphite Black, copic markers

Accessories: green candy dots, ribbons, oval nestie (to trace), dimensionals, scissors


Well, since I was unable to post to my blog yesterday, I thought I would share with you my Featured Stamper card from Sunday:


Our featured stamper yesterday was K Dunbrook.    I was not familiar with her work, but was highly impressed with her gallery which you can see HERE.   This is the card that I chose to case.

Here are my deets for this one:

Stamps:  Our Craft Lounge’s Fishin’ Hole

Colors:  Chocolate Chip, GP White, Bashful Blue, Mellow Moss, Real Red

Ink: Brilliance Graphite Black, copics

Accessories: brads, ribbon, dimensionals, scissors, silver cord.


Thanks for stopping by!   Have a blessed day :)~

    Left a note on a previous post, but will say it here too. Just LOVE your new look 🙂 Wasn’t sure I was on the right blog when I first clicked on to it – it was early in the morning and I wasn’t firing with all pistons yet LOL! Great job on it!

    Sorry to hear you are still suffering with a cold. A few kids I watch after school have one so I’m sure it will make it’s way into our family soon – ugh!!

    Lovely card and a cute FS card too. Hope you feel better soon, and hope DH ribs are healing quickly too!

    I totally love this new look – your picture looks just like a HAVEN! I want to be there!

    I think you sneezed too hard. I am not feeling so good……LOL
    Just kidding — I am tired though. Remind me to tell you about the girl at our door at 2:30 a.m.!

    Your Valentine is WONDERFUL and your recipient will LOVE it! 🙂
    I have to get hoppin’ on mine. Cute little bear – such awesome coloring!
