WOW, Its been a long time!!

I have been gone for a long time and I am truely sorry. My family has been going through changes. Schools, activities and other things that just took away my time from blogging.
I am not sure if I have posted this ever, but I also have an out of the house job, Grooming Dogs. I absolutely love it and its been 2 years now that I have been doing this. I work with one of the sweetest gals I know. We met at church and have been going strong since we met. I love her to death and her family feels like my family!! When you love your job, it makes things so much easier.

I look forward to doing some sketches and color challenges a couple times a week and will be posting them on here.

Here is a flower I made just the other day. I hope you like it. I did use all retired Stampin' Up products just to try it out. I love it.

DIva Coffee Break Designs #212 Color challenge

Welcome back! I have been really trying to post alot more frequently so that you dont get bored with my blog.. :) I will be going back to work next week and I am sooo excited. I love dog grooming and I love my co-worker (friend), she is the best.
So for my card this week I knew I wanted to do a Valentine and a wonderful lady sent me some images of this precious little girl, so I decided to do some watercoloring with my watercolor crayons.



I love how this turned out and I sure hope you will join us at the diva blog and post your card or whatever you make with these colors. It does not have to be a card, it can be anything. So here it is. What do you think? I love to hear your comments.



Have a wonderful day.
Blessings

Creating a Cupcake for my team meeting......

Hello stampers. Todays card is from our team meeting at my upline's house last Saturday. We were asked to bring a shoe box card that was made with a stamp set from the New Occasions Mini. So I made this one. I cased it from someone and I cant remember who it was. I did change the colors and some other things on it though to make it mine.


This picture just shows the dimension of the card with the dimentionals and many layers. Yes I am a layer queen, says Lee, and yet I thought I was doing good because they were not full layers..... LOL Oh well. :) I must say that Stampin Up has outdone themselves by making stamp sets and a punch that completely punches out the stamps. Totally awesome!!

Thank you Stampin' Up!! Loving the Rub-ons!!

Thanks Stampin' Up!! As a demonstrator for SU when I put in my order about a week ago, the were very generous to give us all a pack of these the New Rub-ons that are in the Occasions Mini for free. Along with the Rub-ons was a small 3x5 note that said this was made with the My Digital Studio program. This was just sitting on my table and I came up with the idea to make a card out of the elements. I also wanted to us my new Letterpress plate and I invented something new with a mistake that I did. I put the craft ink on and ran it through the bigshot but must have had the wrong sandwich because it didn't press into my paper as I wanted, it just put the hearts and circles on top of the paper in ink form. So I decided to put some clear embossing powder on, emboss it, and then I reheat it and put on the crystal effects glitter. WOW does it look awesome. I made my own glitter paper!!



Here is a close up of it, but because I lost my good cameras battery charger and I had to use my camera that doesn't take very clear pics. I was trying to show the awesome glitter paper I made.



Now go try this yourself and have fun!

DCBD Color Challenge #210

Happy new Year to everyone and welcome back to my blog this week. We have a wonderful color challenge for you this week that I think screams Snowflakes or Snowmen, but I didn't use that for my card. I wanted to play with my new set from the New Occassions Mini called "Build a Blossom" and its matching Punch. So here we go......
* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *

I so love this card!! It is so easy to do once you have the matching punch to punch out all of your petal pieces. Our colors this week are Sahara Sand, Bashful Blue, and Night of Navy. I added some bling to my flower to make it pop even more.

This is supposed to be a 2 step flower set but I love to use it on a contrasting color that is lighter than your ink or even the same color as your ink.

I am not sure who is going to be the lucky recipient of this card but I sure hope that it makes them smile on their birthday.

I would love to see you play along with our Divas and upload your card to our Diva blog . See you next week with a really cool sketch!!

Blessings,
Heidi
