My new kitten lilly

Wow! I should be ashamed..

Hello everyone :D I am sure all of you have given up on me by now! I see that I haven't posted for 7 months.. I should be ashamed of myself for letting this go so long! Well I know its cliche to say that " I have just been too busy". But it is the truth. My definition of busy is a bit different than yours though I am sure, my definition is : I have been having way too much fun doing other things. haha.

I got a Gamefly subscription for Christmas this year, and it has kept me quite busy trying out tons of new video games every week. So busy in fact that I haven't crafted a single thing! I apologize for not being here. I am attempting at getting things straightened out so that I can be more faithful to my blog. I will not be crafting until summer is over. My craft room is not useable in the summer time do to no air conditioning. In the mean time I thought I would show you one of the other pretty things in my life that has been keeping me busy :D

Have a great day, and I hope to be posting more cards soon :D

Hi Everyone!

Hello Friends,
I am sorry that I have not posted anything on here for so long! After Halloween, things were so busy around here for the holidays! I just couldn't find the time to post, or really make any cards except for Christmas ones. A week before Christmas I hurt my neck and have not been able to do much. I haven't crafted or been on the computer, it aggravated my neck too much.. Now that I am off the muscle relaxers and pain pills, I am busy trying to play catch up around the house. Can you imagine what the house looks like not being able to cook or wash dishes for a month? haha. So needless to say it will still be a while before I am back to crafting and blogging..

Just wanted to let you all know what has been going on, and to let you know that I had not forgotten about the blog. :)

I hope you are all enjoying your new year!

Bubble Over with FUN!

Hi everyone! I am sorry I haven't posted anything for a few days. I have been sick. I am still not feeling well, but thought I had better post something! I made this card a few weeks ago. It sure was alot of fun! I am not a big fan of monkeys, but when I saw this stamp I thought it was so cute! The monkey stamp and sentiment come from Stampendous. The back ground paper was made by just stamping the monkey image in carnation versa color. Circles were cut with my nestabilities and the ofcourse the scallop was the "threading water punch". I would have to say the "threading water punch" would have to be my favorite punch! Diamond glaze was added to the bubbles and the image was colored using Copics.

I am sure Sam and I will be back to blogging soon, just trying to rest up. Have a great day!

Bright Fairy Card

Here is another Fairy card that I made with my Inkadinkado Fairy Stamp Set. I just love this set! This card measures at 4 1/4 X 5 1/2. As you can see in the next picture, how much detail and texture there is on this card.

I embossed the backing cardstock with 2 different Cuttlebug embossing folders. The card was colored using Copics and Watercolors. Stickles were added for sparkle. This card would be great for a birthday card, or just a cute card to send to a friend. Thanks for looking!

Halloween Card

Hello! I sure hope your Halloween weekend was great! I was so caught up in the festivities, that I forgot to post my Halloween card. So here it is :) This card was made using the Hello Kitty cartridge for my Cricut. Diamond Glaze was put on here sucker, and a gem on her bow.. I just love Hello Kitty! I thought it was so cute having her dress up as a black cat. :)


Happy Halloween Friends! It's me, Sam! :) I thought I would get my "boo crew" together to wish you a HAPPY HALLOWEEN! My friends and I are going to stay up late and watch Scary movies! YAY! Nancy and her husband will be off playing pinball and going to a midnight showing of the Shining! What better time to throw a party, since Nancy will be gone!! Eggos for everyone!!! YAY!!

We hope you have a SAFE and SPOOKTACULAR Halloween!! Make sure you eat LOTS of candy!!
