I'd like to recognize other blogger friends of mine with some 'Attitude' of their own...may that
be funny, caring,cheery, aggressive,spunky, all of the above, etc...make it anything your heart desires...
Ultimatly we ALL have a very creative attitude toward this wonderful 'paper hobby' of ours :o)
My 5 choices for this AWARD are the following wonderful gals :

Part of the fun is that each recipient MUST share 3 unknown (or little known) facts about herself.

1. I always forget to send cards even though I make a ton of them!!!

2. I have a graduate degree in education, but I really do not like teaching!!!

3. I've only ridden on an airplane was in my life.

A few more cards I finished today.

The first one is a sunflower card--I love sunflowers.
The second one is a triangle pocket card. A new technique for me but I like it!


New LOVE card!!


I made this card using a digital image from Crafters Digital Art Center. I chose to use watercolor crayons to give it a softer look like rain. Hope you like it!!

New cards today!

Isn't this the cutest kitty you've ever seen??? I just LOVE cats-have 3 of my own-4 when my daughter comes home!!!
This image was a free digi from a new digital stamp company called *Wink*Wink Ink. They're on the lookout for new design team members so I decided to try out. You need to check out the website-cute images!!
I used SU! markers to color and shade the cat to resemble one of my own cats-Coco. Don't you just love the aqua colored eyes? I also like that she's holding a love letter just for me! I used a brad for a stamp to spice it up. The background is made up of different colored cardstock that has been run through my Cuttlebug and cut to fit. A little ribbon finishes it off!! Let me know if you like it! See you tomorrow!!!







Here is another one of my precious Brentwood stamps. Don't you just love the ladybug outfit????
I used two layers of background paper-red and black-used the SU! edge punch on them and offset them so you could see both of them. I used Versamark and white embossing powder on the red background to spice it up a bit. Then I just colored Brentwood using SU! markers and stamped my Happy Birthday. I think it turned out very well. Let me know what you think!!!!

This is a card using my favorite stamps by JessicaLynn Original. The character is Ruby who is dressed up as a flower. I thought it was appropriate since we are all wishing for warm weather. I I also used SU! Stem sayings to stay with the outdoor theme.
I placed some eyelets on the left side and threaded ribbon through them. The ribbon seems to go well with the DP.

















No I haven't fallen off the face of the earth (yet), just been crazy busy with family obligations. But I've managed to put a few cards together that I think you'll like.
The first one uses a chalkboard technique-tutorial on SCS- it's very cool and easy project. Here's a picture. I just used SU! white craft ink to stamp the French script and then used my pastels and cotton balls to spread the colors in layers and blend them together. Add some ribbon and primas and you're down!!!
