I {Heart} my PSF's

Hi again, I have just finished my second 12 hour day, and I'm pooped. Luckily, I have a couple of cards on file I have not shared. I made this card two days ago. I combined many of this weeks MFT challenges from SCS. I used the sketch challenge for the layout, the Who's That Girl Monday challenge, except, I changed the stamp set, but did use some scraps. Also, the What's up Wednesday challenge required a water feature, here a goblet of water. Last but not least, MFT Friday, to use MFT Colors Pink, White and Black. I know the pic looks brownish, but it is black IRF. Enjoy Susan

Day 2 of the 12 Days of Christmas

This is the card I made for day 2 of the 12 days of Christmas challenges over at Paper Craft Planet. Today the challenge was to use either a bird or reptile on you creation. Since I have no other bird stamps and no reptile stamps I used this one. However, I needed two, so I used the reflection technique to make a mirror image. I stamped one dove on cardstock and the other on a piece of acetate. Next, I colored in the leaves and beak with copics, flipped the acetate over, lined up the images and stuck it together. The sentiment I printed on my printer. A little layering and embellishing and voila, my card. Thanks for stopping by, Susan

Just Another Friday

Today I spent making many many cards. I started with a one sheet wonder template and made 10 Christmas cards. Then I caught up on the challenges I had not completed on SCS. Then I added them to my albums over at PCP. Next I joined a blogger group on SCS and added their blogs to mine. Now for a card. This is my favorite card I made today, I made for the MFT sketch challenge. I just love the layout and who can resist the yummy cupcake. I'm not sure everyone would agree that Christmas is a cupcake kind of day, but I sure do!! Hope you all have a cupcake kind of day!! Susan

Another Day... Another Card

Hello, I hope all my American friends had a very Happy Thanksgiving. Here in Canada it is just another day so I made a card. This card is made using "The Magic of Christmas" stamp set that I got from Gina K. Designs. I love this sleigh it's so fancy. The image was stamped on white cardstock, cut out using oval nestabilities and mounted on a scalloped oval. I used a sketch I found on, a piece of printed paper, ribbon, added a greeting and voila..a card LOL :)

Tangled Stella

This stamp is so cute. I just love the wand in her hat. Her lights strewn around her.

It's that time of Year

when we are all rushing about trying to get our holiday crafts one, shopping completed, travel plans made, and cooking planned. My holidays have simplified with kids getting older, my shopping list has shrunk, and I purchase baked goods, and am making a simple Christmas dinner. The one thing I never expected was so many requests for my Christmas cards. I sell then only to friends and co-workers, usually by leaving a box at work. Now I have been told by several staff including one doctor and friends that I need to make more cards because they want to buy them for Christmas..EEK, guess I better get busy. So here's the first card Merrybella.

Daisy Bittybloom

Today is the day a new sketch comes out on the Bella forum over at I chose to use Daisy Bittybloom as my main image. I added the three squares as in the sketch, except I turned it on its side, added some bling with 5 bella baubles and added the sentiment to the bottom. Thanks for looking. Susan

Bluebell Bittybloom

This card uses one of the new Bittybloom from Stamping Bella. Her name is Bluebell. I stamped her using brilliance black ink and colored her with Copic markers. I layered her on printed paper punched with my wrought iron punch, then on mellow moss and brilliant blue card stock. I finished off the card with a bow made of brilliant blue grosgrain ribbon and a couple of bella glitter dots in green. I think she is just adorable. Hope you had a great weekend, Susan.

A Manly Card

Good Morning everyone, it is 6:30 am here and were in the middle of a snow storm. I'm awake early so I thought I'd share a card this time for the guys. I know a lot of golfers and they are mourning the loss of the season and eagerly awaiting the spring to get back on the course. this card features golfafella from Stamping Bella. I colored him with copic markers, and paper pieced a very retro vest on him. I did not include a sentiment on it so I could be used for any occasion. have a wonderful saturday Susan :)

I'm in Bittybloom Heaven

I finally got my Bittyblooms from Stamping Bella. I have stamped them all, colored them all, but have only completed one card so far. This is Sunflower Bittybloom. You Likey?

Feel Better Soon

It's that time of year again when everyone seems to be getting a cold. I made this card for a friend who has a rather nasty cold. Hope all of you who also are feeling under the weather also feel better soon. Cheers Susan

Folded Triange Medallion

This weeks technique challenge over at SCS is to make a folded triangle medallion. It took me a while to figure it out but I finally made it and made this card with it.

Bella Bash

Tonight is the monthly Bella bash and the first challenge, is to show which Bella you are thankful for. Mine is Cosmobella, she is one of my first Bellas and is so versatile.

You Know Your Getting Old When...

This card was a big hit at work and the first person to see it bought it. The inside says: getting lucky means finding your car in the parking lot. There are many more cute sayings for the inside of the card with this set and they are all just as cute, Cheers Susan
