I was able to get one more card done today before I go out in this crummy rain to walk dogs!
I am really in the Springy/Easter mood, so I wanted to make a really cute spring theme card with my A muse stamps!
I cut out the bunny and the chick and popped them up on the card, I used green glitter paper on the bottom and then cut strips of green ribbon and tried to make them look like blades of grass, I think it came out ok, but not quite what I wanted.
All the images are A muse! Even the clouds! I cut them out and popped them out and I glittered them! They look so cute! I used a light blue Copic marker to color the sky very lighty.
The sentiment is also A Muse! Can you tell I love A Muse??!!! hehehe!!
Thank you so much for looking!!!!
WOOOOOHOOOO!! I made another card last night before going to bed, I was determined to make another card, plus I wasn't very sleepy, so I wanted to use my time well!! LOL!!
This is another Inky antics stamp I bought!! OMG!!! How adorable is this shaggy doggy!!!! I just love love love him!!! Well duh, you know me! I'm a pet sitter and dog walker, how can I not buy this stamp!!!!!? hehehehe!!
I colored him in with my copics, I didn't want to color him in too dark, so I used milky white at first then use Bareley beige, and I think he came out super cute!! For his tongue I used Lipstick Red, and then I put diamond Glaze on his tongue, to make it look shiny, like drool!! LOL! It came out awesome!!! He really looks ready to give a big sloppy kiss!! haha!!
I used some spiral stickers that I have had forever! I thought they would look cute on this card. And another flower ;)
I used a MS border punch! I just love this one, it is my fav so far! I haven't bought any punches from MS in a while, so I haven't seen any new ones to drool over yet! LOL
The sentiment is also Inky antics, I just LOVE IT!!!!
The gingham paper is A Muse!
Thank you sooooo much for looking!!!!

Another awesome Sketch by Tracy on her awesome blog: www.eatsleepstamp.typepad.com
I had tons of fun with this card!! I was bad again and bought some new stamps this weekend at my LSS. Inky Antics came out with some totally adorable stamps! Dogs and Cats!! I couldn't help myself!!!!
This cat Image is just too cute!!! The sentiment that went with it is: "Thought you could use a lift!" I just had to have them!!
I can also use it for a birthday stamp or any celebration!!
I colored in the cutie with my copics of course! I used to have an orange cat, so I colored him orange/yellowish.
I used my awesome Nesties for the oval and scallop oval.
I added pink pearls all around the oval, I think it came out super cute!!
I paper pieced the big balloon and popped it out.
I added some adorable flowers on the card, I went through my sticker stash, and WOW! I have so many flower stickers it's insane!! LOL!! So I gotta use them up!! Perfect timing!!
I also did a little sewing around the edges.
Thank you soooo much for looking!!!!

I took a memory box card class at my LSS yesterday! It was tons of fun!!! The teacher was awesome!! He was so nice and very funny!!
Thought I would share with you the cards we made!! They came out so pretty!! i just love the way we did them!!
The first flower card is very different, we used tombow markers to color the edges of the flower, and the stems. Then we stamped the image, and then used a water brush to bring the colors into the center of the flower, and it gave a gorgeous water color look!! I just love it!!!!
The second card is so awesome! The row of trees are so adorable! I believe we called it the lolipop stamp LOL. It's so much fun to color in and put gorgeous glitter on it!! They look amazing!
The third card we used this gorgeous tree stamp, the little bird in the tree is a seperate stamp, it looks so pretty in the tree.
This card is so simple, we used a pretty lilac ink to stamp the tree, and added some bling in the tree. It's really a great card!
The fourth card is another amazing card, this image is two seperate stamps, the bird on the branch is one image, and all the words is another stamp. We stamped the words first, then the bird. We did the same technique with this image as we did the first flower card, we used the water brush on the bird to give it a water color effect. The flower border around the card is another Memory box image, it's so pretty.
The fifth card is really adorable, we used a dandi lion puff ball stamp, we used the tombow markers for the stem, the teacher showed us how to use the brush part of the marker to make stems, or grass. Really a great idea!
Then we stamped the puff ball on top, and this stamp also had a tiny star image on the side of it, so there are two stamps on one. I love that!!
The picture does this card no justice at all!! The puff ball is all glittered up!!! I just love it!!!
Thank you for reading all of this!!! Hope you enjoy the cards!!!

YAY!!! I got a card done for Sketchy Thursday!!! woohoo!
I was really inspired by Sketchy Thursday's Winner "Terry" She used black on her card, and I always love how black looks on cards, but I never think to do it on my cards. So i finally got out my black card stock and used it!!! woohoo!!
I bought a new stamp at my LSS, They got a whole new line of stamps in by this company called Magnolia rubber stamps. They are the cutest stamps ever!!! I was so excited to see them at the store. There were so many to choose from, but this stamp really stood out for me. I'm sure I'll be back there to get another one, or two hehehe!!
I colored her in with copics, and used my atyou spica glitter pen, on the umbrella and water puddle, it's very hard to see in the picture.
I used some Amuse paper, and some cloud paper I have had forever! Finally used some of it!! hehe!! And black paper! And added some pearls!
Thank you so much for looking!!!
