Hey Girlfriend!

I belong to a great new yahoo group, Best of the Sassy Stamping World where stampers and store owners could come and advertise, talk about stamping, what they had in their store, post as many of whatever type of stamps we wanted and just hang out and have fun. Susana of Susana's Custom Art and Card Design, carries Rubber Romance stamps and I just love their sass! When I saw this stamp called "Girls Night Out" from Rubber Romance, it brought back memories I hadn't visited in years! I used to go out with my cousins, Karen and Jenny, and our friends to discos and used to dance the night away. We had more than our share of the bubbly at times, well, most times, but did we ever have fun! All dressed up in satin and silks and glitz. Oh, I had to have this stamp!

I colored these babes with copics and used my Spica glitter pen and Clear Jellyroller to give it some glitz on the peach and brown dress. The pink dress has Cotton Candy Sparkles and I chalked around the image. I used my SU picture corners and used Class A Peel stickers by Stampendous from Susana. What fun they were! (She's going to carry them in her store. E-mail her at if you'd like to order any. It will take a couple of weeks for them to get in. She's getting some other shapes also - diamonds, teardrops, squares, great possibilities!). The background paper and pink Glitter paper is from DCWV and I used my Fiskars Treading Water punch on the side. The gold ribbon is from Joann's.

Remember the good times you had with your girlfriends just getting dressed up and hanging out. I'm so glad I did! Enjoy

Snowplaying Tilda

My girls loved to ice skate when they were young. A dear friend of ours used to work at a local college in their ice arena and every now and then, the girls would be able to sneak in and skate. Can you imagine the dreams those girls had as they were gliding along that cold arena? Tiff was the big skater and Nichole has always loved ballet. So this Tilda is perfect for me and my girls!

My dear friend Summer from Roses on Paper sent me some of these to play with. Summer, you so rock! I colored her with copics and used my spica glitter pen and stickles on her dress and her bow I cut her out with my nestabilities and popped her up on the snowflakes that I found at our local Dollar Store. The ribbon is from American Craft and the background paper is Joyful Twinkling from K & I Memories, I think, and after running my paper through the cuttlebug with the snowflake folder, I ran some pink dew drop ink over the embossed snowflakes. I loved working on her.

While I despise the snow, I love how children are in the snow. Enjoy!

I'm Back!

I'm just loving Sarah Kay stamps right now! I have such a hard time coming up with which one is my favorite, but there's something about a creative little cutie that warms my heart! I colored her with my copic and Prisma markers and the paper is from Basic Grey. I cut her out and popped her up onto layered card stock. The flowers are from Imaginese and the ribbon is from Joann's. I adore these babies and I followed the challenge from Magnolia Meets Stampavie Challenge group. I'm trying to get into doing some challenges so hopefully that might keep me on track. I hope you enjoy her as much as I enjoyed presenting her.

Everyone was asking to see the Queen of Hearts cosutme I was working on so here it is! Kelly loved it and believe me, it looked so good on her! My Nichole went as her flamingo so whenever Kelly would go to pretend she was hitting the croquet ball, Nichole would go into this pose. We laughed till we couldn't stand it. Kids!
