Hands In My Pocket....

I love that song "Hands In My Pocket" by Alanis Morrisette! Great singer! Not that it fits this sweet little stamp, but the song entered my head when I was coloring her. Not sure really why. It's been a while since I have sat down and made a card. Have to say I missed it. I just turned up my music and sang along to the tunes and before I new it....I created this card. Hope you enjoy! :0)

Swiss Pixie Miss Rosalie

Hi all! just a quick drop in. Used my new stamp that I received, Miss Rosalie. I think she is just too adorable!! Anyway, just put together a card after playing with this stamp. Hope you enjoy, and appreciate any comments. Ta-ta for now ;-)

Different kind of card....

I wanted to try something different by doing a card I never done before. This card was more for just playing around. Before I knew it...a card was born, lol!
I wanted something on the flap, but just couldn't quite put it together. So I dug around my spellbinders, and came up with the scalloped circle. I then came across my embossing Cuddlebug flower border and ran it through on the flap of the card. I actually had some Velcro and placed it under the flap to hold the flap closed. Anyway, it was just a play around card, but was fun to make. Thanks for stopping by and Have a good one! ;0)

Magnolia Down Under challenge 41

The theme this week is olden days using black, white, and grey's. I have to admit, this one was very challenging for me. I tried colored several Tilda's, and have to say, I struggled. I started with Copics, then went to chalks, then went back with Copics. But I kept at it, and think I have it.

Paper: Brown card stock; lettering from Paper Studio, and Swirls and Twirls from Paper Pizazz.
Frame from Spellbinders
Shy Tilda Magnolia Stamp

In Loving Memory of My Mother

My mother, Sylvia I Musso, passed away 4 yrs ago, March of 2006. I love and miss her dearly! She was not only our mom, she was our friend. Not a day goes by that I don't think of her. I thank the good Lord above every chance I get that he gave me such wonderful loving parents. My dad passed away 24 yrs ago when I was 14 yrs from cancer. He battled the horrible disease a couple years before passing. I know in my heart, that God is taking good care of my parents, and that they are smiling down on us. My mom passed away during heart surgery. she was to have a valve replacement...a common surgery. Little did they know that her valves were smaller then the realized and the valve they had wouldn't work. So they had to resort to a different one. One complication led to another. A 2 to 4 hr surgery ended up being over 8 hours! Longest day of our lives as we were waiting. she did not survive the surgery. One of the many things that reminds me of mom is butterflies. She loved butterflies. my mom was a special woman. Always had a smile on her face and was so kind to everyone! She is truly loved and missed. I did these pages in memory of her. Love you mom!

My son's birthday card

Hello! Today my son turned 17 yrs old! Wow, where did the time go??? It was only yesterday when I was kissing his owies, and tucking him in bed at night. My snuggly little boy is all grown up! :-( Make me sad! I made this birthday card for him and this was my first try at this kind of card. It was fun to make, and pretty fast really! Hope you enjoy, and have a wonderful day! Thank you for any comments! :0)

Magnolia Down Under challenge 40

Hello all! Happy Monday! I hope everyone had a great Easter. We had a nice quite day, which was great! My hubby actually cooked the dinner (my family prefers it that way as my cooking..well..lets just say, spaghetti sauce from the jar is my style of cooking ;0)). He fixed a wonderful ham, with garlic mashed potatoes, yams, spinach salad, and a green bean casserole.

Any way, back to cardmaking :0). This is the first time I tried making one of these cards. These are quite fun and different! Hope you enjoy! :-)

Edwin Kissing Tilda

Well it is late Saturday night and just finished a card using my new Edwin and Tilda stamp. I love these 2, they are just so adorable. Sorry it's been a few days since I've done anything. I bought a new paper pack (The Linen Closet Stack) by DCWV. Beautiful paper in that stack. So it inspired me to do a card. I'm starting to feel a little more comfortable with the Copic Markers, but still need practice.

One of my biggest struggles is putting papers together. I welcome any suggestions if anyone would have any. Hope everyone has a wonderful Easter. May the Easter Bunny treat you well! I'm hoping for lot of chocolate. Oh yeah, life is good! Take care! ;0)
