thank yousm

Good Day all !!! I made another card with my new Hanglar stamp. I just love this girl. I made this for a very special person that has been so sweet to me. And just wanted to let her know how much I appreciate all she has done for me.

I have colored her with my copic’s and my papers are from Cloud 9. I used some lace from Joanna’s and the doily die is a Marianne die cut. I added some bling in the corners of the card and added a MS butterfly with some bling and some stickles to it. then the Branch and leaf is a MS punch.  The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts.

I’m Home

Oh it is so good to be back home !!! I got to come home last night and boy it was just a big relief to be home and out of that place. I am doing pretty good. Really sore but the Dr said surgery went well. I have a lot of swelling but for the most part I feel okay.  I am on a clear liquid diet and everything at room temperature well let me tell you room temperature coffee SUCKS !!!! But next week I can move on to hot and cold foods and then just like milkshakes, pudding, etc. I just have to start getting a little bit of textured foods at a time. Might loose some weight this way lol But wanted to say a Big Thank you to all of you who sent me well wishes, I so appreciate it more than you will ever know.


I was lucky enough to get my new DT images from Sugar Nellie before I left for the hospital and managed to make a little gable box with one of them. Oh ladies you just wait till you get your hands on these !!!! OMG the detail in these images is just out of this world and the shading she has put in them. They are beautiful. I really enjoyed coloring these. Sugar Nellie is providing us with the most gorgeous stamps ever !!!!!!!!!!!! Krista’s images are very addicting as you all know  and these are going to be a must have too.  I know my picture taking isn’t the greatest but I do hope you can see all the gorgeous detail this artist has put into these stamps. They are beautiful !!! So start stalking Funky Kits for these will be coming at you real soon and I believe some are digi’s so that means NO waiting !!!!

Happy Birthday

rachelle frontsm

Morning All !!! Well I so hope this post goes off as scheduled. Today is my big day and to tell you the truth I am scared to death, but as this post goes off I should be in surgery.

But wanted to show you my card I made for my youngest daughter. Her birthday is next week and I figured I had better get this done for I don’t think I will feel like doing any crafting for a few days. My baby is going to be 31 this year. Man I am getting old lol

But I have used one of my new stamps I got for Christmas. The sweetest lady sent me 3 gorgeous Hanglar Images and I about passed out !!! Thank you dear you are just so sweet and I just love them. I have used papers from MME and the spellbinder frame. The leaf die is from Magnolia and the branch punch is from MS. And of course these gorgeous flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts. I am entering this into the challenge over at 7 Kids College Fund.

Happy 16th !!


Long time here for me !!! I have been so swamped at work that it has but my crafting on the back burner. We have started up new models at work and this time of year is very busy for us. I leave in the dark and get home in the dark. But as of today I am on Christmas Vacation. The factory starts back up the 3rd but since I am having my surgery Tuesday I get some extra time off. GHEEZZ what a way to spend my vacation. Oh well it has to be done.


I am a little behind in my images for the new release over at Funky Kits for the new images by Krista at Sugar Nellie so I got a card made for my grandson. He is going to be the big 16 next month, and thought this was the perfect image to use for his card.  The image is called Number #1 Fan. Don’t you just love those eyes? I told you on release that these would be a huge sell out and they were but I know Karen got more in so if you didn’t get them the 1st time around go grab them now.


I have colored him with my copic’s and used a chipboard star and added a cut out 16 and added some stickles to it. The doily is a Marianne die that a very sweet dear lady sent me. I just love this die.


Well I hope you all have a Very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. I will be scheduling some posts for my blog with some more Sugar Nellie images while I am in the hospital so hope you will stop back bye. Merry Christmas Everyone from my family to yours !!!!!!!

A Box of Candy!!!


Morning Everyone!!! I hope everyone is staying warm. Its a little nippy here. The work week has been a busy one. Leave the house at 5 am in the dark and get home in the dark.  This is the time of year where our production gets worse than what is normally is. So my crafting fun is always on the back burner.

This has took me all week to get done just because it is so late when I get home. I have made an easel card box with a drawer to put some candy in.

I used one of last years Tilda’s. and the circle sentiment is from Sandra’s Blog . I so love her digi stamps she has such a talented lady.Then my sentiment on the bottom is from Verve.

Here is the card front

Life Happens


Hello !!! Hope this finds you all doing well. Today I have another Sugar Nellie card to show you from the new release over at Funky Kits. Simply Sassy set 3 is available now and I do hope you have yours ordered for you know these go fast. Today I have used Fashionista and Laid Back Dude on my card.  They have been colored with my copic’s and these pretty papers are from The Paper Studio.  Punches I used are from SU. And I used one of my new spellbinder dies.  I am not for sure of my sentiment. I have forgotten where it is from sorry.


Oh and I had a blast making this lantern that I saw on the lovely and talented Norma’s Blog. This girl ROCKS !!!

I had some trouble with my roof only because I was so tired but the directions were really awesome. I am telling you this lady is so talented.

I used the Snowman from Magnolia and some MS and SU punches , some flower soft for this fur and lots and lots of twinklets for the snow lol And boy that was fun cleaning that up, I had that stuff every where lol

The sentiment stamp is one I got from Sandra’s Blog, you all need to check her blog out, Such great sentiments. I love these.


Here is a side view of the lantern. My grandson saw this when I got it finished and asked if he could have it. I was really shocked for he never wants anything like this but he is going to fill it with candy and don’t ask me who he is going to give it too lol Just glad he liked it.

Have a great day and thanks so much for stopping bye.

Girl Scout Projects


Morning Everyone !!! Well I am back with a second post today.

We woke up to our 1st snow today !! Only have a couple of inches so far but still snowing.

So hope you all enjoyed the Sugar Nellie Blog Hop today. Those new images of Krista’s is just so much fun to work with.

Today I would like to show you a couple of projects my oldest granddaughter and I have been working on. She is in Girl Scouts now and needed something for each of the girls and her Scout Leader so I made this Tissue Box for her with my new stamps that arrived yesterday. I just love Tilda with her Snowman.

I am entering this into the Magnolia-Licious Highlights Challenge Blog  where Diane asked us to make a project with a Word or Letter in it. So I have used the word Snow here and have used some Twinklets on the wording. Then over at  Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog there is a Color Inspiration so I used the colors from the picture to color Tilda and Snowman.  I have also used some Snowflakes from the SU Sizzix dies and some stickles .


Here is the top of the tissue box


Then here is where we had our assembly line going lol I cut all the boxes out and Kirstie and I taped them all together and added the snowman and snowflake to the box.  She is going to add some candy to the boxes for her friends in Girl Scouts.


Well that it is for me today. I am starting to feel this probe be released some so hopefully it will pass soon and I will feel so much better.

Have a great day and stay warm.

Sugar Bowl Snowflakes


Hello Everyone!!

Well it has been a miserable week for me. I was to go back to work the day after they put the probe in but didn’t happen. They said I am the 3rd one this has happened to, but the probe has been poking me every time I move. I can’t eat (well that might be good thing lol) So I have been off work. My 48 hours was up today for the wireless remote but it hasn’t fallen off yet. The hospital said it could take several days for it to fall off. Trust me I am so ready !!!

So I done a little crafting today I made my card for the Sugar Bowl Challenge Blog. I have used one of the Home Grown images called Winter Wonderland from Funky Kits. There is a gorgeous sketch to follow and the theme is Snowflakes. I used some stickles on the snowflakes and my spica glitter pen on the flowers of the umbrella and scarf. And I used some Fun Flock on the fur of her coat.
