Victoria Case Blog Challenge #5

This is the sketch we followed this week:
I didnt follow the sketch exactly, I changed it up a bit.

It took me 5 attempts at doing this, I am very tired tonight, Both kids are home and I couldnt get my mojo working. But It finally clicked into gear! Woohoo..

I love this new image of Victoria Case's Stork I used my copics to color in the stork, stickles on the baby blanket and Safari Kids Stack Pack by DCWV. I have a bunch of cute buttons in my stash, and I just happen to find that tug board. My sentiment is a stamp i found at Hobby Lobby. That circle where the sentiment lays is from SCAL its actually a Spellbinders file called Dahlia, I googled it and I found the SVG. :) If you want a copy let me know.

Have a great night.

Blog Award!

Thank You Jackie!!! The rules are to display this award on your beautiful blog with a link to mine and the 7 blogs you are passing the award to. So I am passing the award to the following blogs:


Stitching on Cards

I am so glad to have my sewing machine back in working condition. I finally can do some sewing. One of my blog buddies Stephanie was kind of enough to send me some penny black images, as I dont own any, Thank you so much!!! I dont know the name of this stamp set. I love them and they are on my wish list.

I stitched on this card using the PTI cardstock because of its weight. Its very heavy and handles stitches well. I used black straight stitch and a yellow scallop stitch. I love the way embrodiery thread looks on cards. It has a nice shine to it.

Room Photos

As promised here is my new room. The new color is a greenish blue, looks very blue on camera. Not sure why. I didnt make the curtains yet, I just draped the fabric on my rod (the machine is in for service) I still need a few things, an area rug, some photos, pillows another chair. But I got the painting done! Woohoo

This is what it look like before. It was my sons room. I kicked him out hehehe. Naah hes in a new room now.

And this is what it looks like now..

Computer/Cricut Area

This Ugly book case is going to be replaced with More adjustable shelves and I would like a real sewing table one day :)

The Closet Area

My PaperCraft Area, I want a new table one day here too.

I am glad the painting is done. It needed 3 coats to cover that blue! I will post more pics when it looks more put together.

Grape Fairy

I won this stamp at a contest over at SNR Universe and I finally got around to using it. I love love this stamp! I used Gina K's Embossing tutorials and I am in Love with this technique!!!

I used Stampin Up Purple Cardstock, Momento Ink and a cosmetic sponge for the shading, my yummy Prisma Pencils with OMS and of course my scalloped nestie dies. Now I want more nesties! hehe....

Have a good day!

Gina K Stamp TV Challenge

I been watching but felt not good enough to participate, I thought since I had the night free I would give this one a try.

The challenge was to use our nestibilites die to make a card. I never did this before, I couldnt ever figure it out! LOL.

Thanks to Gina over at Stamptv I finally understand!! If you havent been there, you must go!

Here is my card.

What a Great idea!

since i am in the process of redoing my room, Yes I am still painting. I only have 2 days to do it during the week. And most of that time I am doing other stuff.

But this is a must do on my list!


Just have to decide what paper to choose.

Victoria Case Challenge #3

Here is a another Awesome challenge over at VC challenges!!

The sketch this week is this. It is nice and easy but of course it took me hours to decide on the color scheme. hehe

I used the Angel sitting on a Halo image called Angel Heart from VC, and colored her in with my prisma pencils. The background paper is from K&CO, I used some really nice ribbon on my recent trip to Hobby Lobby. I also picked up a big bag of buttons, so cute on cards! I faded out the white on the image a bit with some martha stewart green chalk. I think it makes her look like she in the clouds.

I hope you enjoy your day.

Victoria Case Tara Image

I am little late for this challenge, the winner was already picked, my room is such a disaster I couldnt get in their sooner.  I used the free image from Victoria Case, the challenge was pink, black and white.  I colored her in with my copics and used paper I had in my stash. Cant decide on a sentiment yet, they are packed away. Once I am finished painting, I will add one on to this card.
