Just a Little Humor!


Here are some more images from the swanky sets from The Cats Pajamas.

I love the colors you can use with these images, so vibrant.

I didn't see the baby kitty in the cradle-board, until after I stamped her, isn't she adorable!

Thanks for visiting my blog, and come back often.

I actually don't have to study today, so I am off to stamp. Yeah!!

Have a great day!

Get along little doggy!


Yes, I am still playing with my new stamp sets from The Cat's Pajamas.
I needed to take a break from reading my textbook. I hope you enjoy it! I am going to try to add more details of how I make these cards, but that will have to come later, I really need to get ready for class.

Have a great day!

Can you sing along?



I do have to admit, I am a dog person!

But how could you not fall in love with this Kitty!

Come on, the girl can throw a mean lasso! And how fitting of a sentiment to go along with her.

I am loving these sets from The Cat's Pajamas.

Here is another card I made, and I plan on making some more today to share. I went through my huge pp stash, and found all my Western/Cowboy type pp, so I am in the mood for some swanky creating!

Check back often, Pardner!

Yee-Haw! There's a new sheriff in town!


I am all giddy still after my happy mail day yesterday, when my swanky new sets from The Cat's Pajamas came.
I can't wait to make more cards with them. They are too cute!

Here is another card I made yesterday after their arrival. You might be seeing these little image on my blog for the next year, or so! If anyone know the maker of this pp, can you please let me know, I am screaming for some more! And thanks to whoever sent it to me!

Thanks for visiting my blog, be sure to sign my guestbook!

Hung Up On Love


I didn't want to do it, but this set from Autunm Leaves called "Mindy's Zoo" kept calling to me, and so I caved and bought it from my LSS "Country Cottage".

I needed a zoo set for all my pictures I need to scrap when we went to the Portland Zoo this summer while on our Oregon Coast trip. All the pp is by BO BUNNY (my favorite), and the sentiment is from Stampin' Up set "So Many Sayings". The embellishments are Cherry Red DoodleBug Dots, love them! I had to mask the little guys tail, and let me tell you, trying to cut that out was work in itself. But it was worth it! Thanks for visiting my blog!

Hope for Tinkerbella


I seen a blog about a little girl that has brain cancer, she is only 5 years old and has to under go 70 chemo treatments. Just breaks my heart. My only answer in life is HOPE, it might be simple to some but it has gotten me through some rough times. I made this card to send to her, maybe with a little hope she can be cancer free.

Flower Filled Thanks


So I have been a bad little girl, and have been stamping instead of studying for my Anatomy and Physiology class. I do have to admit that the class is kind of a refresher class for me, because my EMT Basic and Paramedic classes pretty much taught me the entire thing. I really need to have a desk that doesn't double as my stamp/study desk, that way I might not be so tempted to grab for the stamps, paper, and ink so much.

Anyway, I get to share one of the cards I made while I was being a bad girl.

I ended up making 4 cards altogether, I have a few friends that I needed to send a "thinking of you" card too, one is having medical issues, and the other is having some tough days at work, and where she works you don't want to have those kind of days. Wouldn't you know she does the very thing I am going to school for! Then a shack friend lost a loved one, and I hate making sympathy cards, but it needed to be done.

I thought maybe a cheery card with bright colors might be the thing! Hope everyone has a great week.

Still am a Cowboys Fan........


Yes I said it, I am a Cowboy fan!

I have been since a little girl. We live in Montana but I am a Cowboy fan to the hilt!
My DH and 2 of my kiddos are Cowboy fans too! My middle DS is a Broncos fan, I know the rebel, but we still allow him to live with us.

So they didn't get through todays game, I am still a fan, and will be for a long time.
We have a lot of options open for next year, and I'll be here to see them through the good and bad. I will still watch the super bowl, but only for the commercials!
Then it's on to NASCAR............ Go Jr!!
I seriously live in ESPN land!

That is always a great thing to find out, in life in general, and when you win blog candy from a great stamp store.

The sets are designed by Julee, check out her blog Poetic Artistry.

Thanks Julee!

Paisley Birthday


I love Polka Dots! Just brings a smile to my little ol' face.

And I love paisley too, it looks so cute on cards.

This is a card I made to send to one of my friends for their birthday, but which friend is still a mystery. Thanks for visiting my blog.

Missing Mr. Snowman


So I did another stint in my stamproom today, and made some more cards from my Stampin’ Up Challenge. I was also making my Cuttlebug smoke from alotta use, and thought I would share this little card with you. I was trying to do a card without stamping, yes those words came out of my mouth, But as you can see it didn’t end up that way.

How could you not ink a stamp?? Beyond my imagination!
The sentiment is from a retired
Stampin’ Up hostess set called “So Many Sayings”, most of the words fit right into the window word punch. Thanks for visiting my blog!

Finding Flowers


So I spent last night totally emerged in my stamp room, I am headed back to school on monday, and I need to ink as many stamps I can before my head fills up with all the knowledge from nursing school, and my face is crammed in all those books. I have a goal to make at least a couple cards a week, I know I will need to take a break sometime. While in there last night I made this card using retired Stampin' Up sets Flower Filled, Polka Dot and Paisley, and the Hot to Dot wheel. Thanks for visiting my blog!

Cowboy Cards




I have been slowly, and I mean slowly, doing a Stampin' Up Challenge over the last few years. The idea for the challenge is to use all my Stampin' Up sets, (there is 174 and counting...) alphabetically, and make at least three cards from each set. So to celebrate the Catalogs release today, why not share a few of the cards I made for the Challenge. The images are from Stampin' Up set Bronc Buster, and they fit my lifestyle to a T!! Thanks for visiting my blog, make sure to check out the new Stampin' Up catalog too!

View from my Scraproom


This picture is the view I get everyday from my scraproom. The room is above the garage, and includes my bedroom. But it is a rather large space, enough that I have a king bed, 2 dressers, a nice long closet, my treadmill, and my total gym. I even have room to walk around. I am truly blessed to have this amazing view. That is Flathead Lake, and the Mission Mountains in the background. You can also get a glimpse of the high school (white rooftop).
It amazes me that I get any work done, with this view.
I also have some special things on my work space table including 2 calendars that have a daily message for me to live by.
I decided to include their two messages for you to read.
The first is by Heart To Heart:
Keep your heart free from hate,
Your mind free from worry.
Live simply, expect little,
Give Much, sing often, pray always
Fill your life with love, scatter sunshine
Forget self, think of others.
Do as you would be done by.
These are the tried links
In contentments golden chain.
The next one is a filled a bit more with humor, it's by Garborgs "Smile your way through every day":
I have to exercise in the morning,
before my brain figures out what I'm doing.
Once again, Have a wonderful 2008!

Happy 2008!


A Happy New Year to all ! I am hoping that the New Year brings you all health, wealth, and great blessings. I am not into doing resolutions, but I hope that all your are fulfilled to the max.

Here is a Stamping Bella card to ring in the New Year. Many splended days ahead to all!
