Finished Copic Coloring of Uptown Angel

I had fallen in LOVE with the Kenny K stamps ever since I saw thenorsugirl color them up on her YouTube channel.  I went right over to and signed up for their newsletter.  About a week ago, I received the newsletter stating that their stamps were 20% off!!!!  What!!!!!  I HAD to buy some of them now...hehehehe.  I went online and picked some up (13 of them, that's some right?!?!?!?!?).  They came in on the perfect day because it was my friend's birthday and there was one that was perfect for her.  I started coloring her up right away.  Here is the video of my finished card.  She came out soooooo cute.  Jennifer loved it.

Hope you guys enjoyed :)

Michael's Haul and Stella Birthday Card

I wake up every Sunday and look up the Michael's ad.  I want to make sure that I am able to get the best deals on the first day so that they don't run out.  To my surprise, they had their recollections brand paper 50% off.  Those new beautiful paper pads were 50% off!!!!  How could I pass that up?!?!?!?!?  Soooo, I got up, got dressed, and went shopping.  Here is what I picked up.

I also show a finished birthday card I made for my Assistant Principal.  Hope you enjoy :)

I think the card came out sooooooooo cute.  I'm going to hate to give it away....sniff, sniff.  I really hope she likes it :)

Cricut Catalog

The other day I wanted to cut an image out for a project I was working on with the Cricut.  I looked it up on my Gypsy and then I went to get the manual to see it in color.  I don't know about you but I LOVE to see the images in color.  I need to see it so I can make up my mind.  Anyways, I decided to make a catalog so I can flip through it to pick my image.  Sooooooo, here is my finished catalog.  I hope you enjoy :)

I think this catalog will really help me out when I am trying to decide which image to cut.  Hope you think it's a good idea :)

Thank You Card

School started 2 weeks ago and it has been a reeeeaaaaaallllllyyyyyy rough start.  My back has been hurting.  The heels of my feet have me walking like an 80 year old woman.  I haven't been sleeping well and I feel the stress of a new year.  Anyways, I was having a particular hard morning with my own boys when tears started to stream down my cheeks.  It was very early in the morning so I walked to my classroom to start preparing for the day.  I had no idea that a parent would actually be up there waiting to get something from my room.  Yup, she saw the tears.  I was sooooooooooo embarrassed but I just couldn't stop the tears.  I let her into the room, went to my desk and got some hand sanitizer so I could clean off my face and settle down.  After a few minutes, I was able to calm down enough.  The parent was very understanding and she did not ask about anything.  She simply came in and got the items she needed with her son.

Later on that day, I went down to my mailbox and I found a surprise.  The parent had left me a card!!!!!!!!  I was soooooooooooooo touched.  Tears welled up in my eyes but this time they were tears of joy.  I needed that card sooooooooo much.  It showed me that someone cared.  I just say enough how much that card means to me to this very day.  I have the card in my entertainment unit so I can see it when I first come in the door and while I'm watching TV.

Soooo, I made her a card as a small thank you.  It was a super small gesture because I would never be able to thank her properly.  The gesture of a card really means soooooooo much.  So here are some grainy pictures of the card that I made ( my iPhone fell into water and now it doesn't work like it used to but that's another story all together).

I cut the card out with the Cindy Loo Cricut cartridge at 3 and 3/4".    I then cut the shadow at the same size.  The doily was cut out of white cardstock and then stamped with my script stamp in creamy roan.  The shadow scalloped paper was cut out of chocolate brown script paper.  I then placed some Want-2-Scrap bling from  Chocolate seam binding finished off the card. I think it came really nice.

Hope you guys enjoy :) Mercy
