Happy New Year and Some "Sweet" News

Happy New Year my crafting friends!! I hope 2011 is a blessed year for everyone.  I am so excited to tell you that I am an official Sugar Baby for The Sweet Stop Sketch Challenge Blog.   I am always using and playing along with Korin's wonderful sketches and I can't wait to share my cards with you.  Korin not only comes up with awesome sketches but her Sweet and Sassy stamp line is so cute.  This is also a wonderful way for me to start using my neglected rubber stamps, which is going to be one of my New Year's resolution.  Here is my first card using sketch SSS89.

This stamp is by Penny Johnson called Bird and Bear.  I was getting tired of snowflakes so I decided to do something a little springy.  The paper is Basic Grey's Koshi, the flower is Sizzix and the flourish I made with my new Christmas present a Cricut ,woohoo!! I colored everything with Copics and added a little Crystal Stickles. I am going to try and be better about keeping up with Copic colors and maybe start listing them again.

I hope that you will join us for the sketch challenge and stop by and meet the new Sugar Babes, what a talented group of ladies.  Enjoy the rest of your weekend.

Good-Bye and Ringing in the New Year

It is so hard to believe that the year has come to an end, every year seems to go by faster and faster. I want to first take a minute to thank all of my followers and visitors.  All of your comments make me smile and I look forward to visiting your blogs and sharing all things crafty.  It has been a fast and furious 6 months since my first post and with it came the honor of being on my first design teams.  That being said it is time to say good bye to the Claudia & Company Digi Team as my term has come to an end. Claudia is such a wonderful lady and I thank her for the opportunity, it has been a pleasure to work with her and the rest of the design team.  Die Cuts R Us Officially changes to Claudia & Company on January first so please visit the store HERE.

Winter Ella
As a farewell I used Winter Ella Puddle Jumper by Lori Boyd which is now available in digi format.  The paper is from My Minds Eye Breaking Out collection .  I used a mix of Flower Soft polar white and Martha Stewart glitter for the snow. The silver snowflakes are by Jolee's Boutique.

I hope you have a wonderful New Year's Eve please be safe and I will see you again on New Year's Day for an exciting post, well at least I think it will be :)

Baby's First Christmas

I have discovered I am really bad with crafting in the month of December.  I hope everyone is doing well with their last minute holiday preparations, it is amazing how quickly it sneaks up.  Thanks again to all of you who left such nice comments along the ATS Digi blog hop.  Riley was over the moon when I would read her the comments about her treat box :) So excited in fact that she insisted I post another creation (see below).
 Since I am running behind my card today is for my Claudia & Company Digi post from last week, better late than never they say.
This is Baby Jussie Lollipop by Lori Boyd and you can find it at Die Cuts R Us which will be changing it's name to Claudia and Company on January 1st.  While me and Riley were working on our cards today she said I quote "Christmas has to have bling.".  It cracked me up, where do they come up with these things? I must say she is right so you can see I added lots of Silver and Crystal Stickles all over my layers.

Baby's First Christmas
This wonderful sketch is from The Sweet Stop SSS86 and there is still plenty of time for you to enter. 
The snowflakes that I used for the scallop element is a Martha Stewart punch and I made the candy cane out of wired ribbon.

I'm Back with Ella

I can't believe it has been so long since I posted.  I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving for those who celebrate.  We went on a an 8 day road trip, (crazy I know) but we had a great time visiting family and friends. We did learn that my kids hate to travel in the dark "it's boring", Boring??? Kids have DVD players electronic games so much to entertain themselves they have no idea how lucky they are.  I have been peeking at blogs but have had little time to comment so I will definitely be doing that soon.

**Thursday is Digi Creation Day at Claudia and Company HERE.
** You can now get Lori Boyd's Puddle Jumpers in Digis  at Die Cuts R Us.
Today I made a pretty simple card with one of my favorite Puddle Jumpers Ella with Doll from Claudia and Company.  I love the colors in this paper by Crate Paper's Restoration and I got it in the 6x6 pack at Die Cuts R Us right HERE. The sentiment is from Paper Make Up  (they have some really nice sentiment stamps BTW).  Ella was colored with Copics and the shading was done with Prisma pencils.
I hope you all have a wonderful day.  I have a lot of projects to get done for the upcoming week and some more to come.
