The theme this week at the Lili Of The Valley Challenge Blog is to make a Christmas Card. I used the Polar Bear for you for this challenge and I also used the sketch at Sketch Saturday . I so love Jo's sketch's. I always look forward to Saturdays. I used the spellbinders nestabilites to cut the circle and added some dots with my white gel pen. I used the Martha Stewart zig zag punch for the bottom and added a couple of peel offs on it and the metal Happy Holidays from Making Memories. I added some of the crochet flowers I had made with some Christmas Tree brads.

Cute Card Thursday #33

This week on Cute Card Thursday the theme was Starry Night. I was really stumped with this one but come up with this idea. There really wasn't a lot of room to do much after I got it together so just added some stars. I used the image from Whiff of Joy. I colored Charlotte and the reindeer with my copics and glitter pens. I added some ribbon to a couple of the sides and added some peel off and bling stars. The wording is a rub on.

Friday Sketchers#25

Claudia has done the sketch this week for Friday Sketchers. Thanks Claudia for a great sketch. I had fun doing this one. I used one of the Alota Christmas Images. Just love these little bugs. I colored them with my copic markers and added some glitter on them and also used my spica glitter pens too. I used some peel offs for the wording and the corner dies is from Sizzix. The flowers are from Prima and I just added some ribbon towards the bottom.

A Spoon ful of Sugar #22

This weeks theme at A Spoonful of Sugar is Halloween!! So I used one of my new Magnolia Halloween stamps that I got at Magnolia A Holic. I colored Tilda with my copic markers and added my white gelly pen marker and spica glitter pens in places. I used my Martha Stewart lace punch and the Halloween fence I got from Risa in her blog candy, also the SU stamps (tage, Witch hat, and spider in the bottom right is also from the wonderful blog candy that Risa sent me. It was just like Christmas. I added a prima flower and used my Martha Stewart branch punch.

Lili Of The Valley

I am so late in posting my Lily of the Valley Challenge this week. I have been so sick that I have not done nothing. This time of the year is a killer for me. Between the sinus and now the flu. I just have worked and came home and went to bed.
I colored my image in with my copic markers and some glitter. I used my new boss kut poinsettia die and I just love this one. You can see the detail in the center.
The wording is a rub on.
Again so sorry I am late with this ladies and that I haven't been able to comment on a lot of blogs just don't have it in me right now. I can't get into the Dr till Monday so hopefully after that I can get back to normal.

New Grandbaby

My youngest daughter had her ultra sound Thursday and we found out what the baby is. It is a BOY!!!!! He will be named Nathaniel David. He is about 3 days early right now so his due date is the 10th of March. They said he is doing great that everything looked good. My granddaughter wanted a sister so bad and when they said boy she just put her head down and about cried. But we are just happy he is healthy. After loosing 3 they are just so happy it is in good health.
The top right picture is one of the new ways they are doing these it is a 3D image of him. Rachelle let me go with them to the ultra sound and it was just so neat. So now I will have 4 boys and only 2 girls.


I recieved this gorgeous PIF (Pass it Forward) from Linda Wright. Isn't this just awesome.
I got the most gorgeous card some flowers, ribbon and some cute stamped images. I also got a Rachelle Anne Miller stamp. OMG !!!! What a package.

My oldest granddaughter had to have a present for her teacher for there party this Thursday so she asked me to make her a notebook. I used one of the new Tilda with pumpkin that I got at Magnolia a Holic . For all you USA or really anyone else she has the new Halloween stamps in and the Pink collection will be here anyday. So make sure you check it out.

I colored Tilda with my copic markers and spica glitter pens. Cut her out and matted her on a couple of ovals. I used my new Martha Stewart fence punch that my dear friend Risa sent me in the blog candy. I got such a wonderful candy from her. Will show you my cards later on in the week. I stamped the Trick or Treat and the spider and spider web (Inkadinkado) and then glued my oval and image down. I added some prima flowers and spacers and brads to the center of the flowers and then last used my Martha Stewart doily lace punch at the top with some ribbon I had.
