Emma playing again ...

Well Emma was at it again in my craft room.This kid is enjoying this way too much.She keeps bugging me to put all her creations on my she keeps it up she may have to start her own. So one of her besties has a birthday so she created this card for her.She loves blue and dogs...I think it worked out well.It did make me realize I don't have as many dog stamps as I thought I did.Hmmmm another excuse to go shopping lol. Anyway the image is a Whipper Snapper I think?..I'm not sure what paper it is cause I have a "scrap box" that she has access to ,all my tidbits left over from cards I made.Then I know she isn't getting into the good stuff that I want to use or need.It's a great trade off.
Some close ups......

She would like to enter into the Simon Says Stamp -Children's Summer Challenge

Magical Birthday Wishes Friend

HI there.I must say I'm a happy camper.The weather has cooled right down,even a little rain.I know some of you are like "is she crazy" but I'm not a heat girl so this is a nice break from this hot hot weather.
So onto my card today.I made this for my nail girl,well she does my nails ,pedis and well all the etc. We actually have become great friends.It's nice to get spoiled getting my nails done which by the way SHE IS AMAZING.But over the years we have been each others ears :) We each listen to each other, of course the odd conversation about NOTHING lol. Just some good ol' laughs.I had this image colored and this card seem to take me forever to put together.I worked on it over several days.I'm not kidding.Well the first day I was having issues,then it was hot,couldn't think of how I wanted it.But I'm happy with the end result.

This pic came out weird,the color is actually peach,I have no idea y lol.

Bookmarked at High Hopes

 Hi there.I hope your ready for a new challenge at High Hopes.I'm gonna keep this short because my internet keeps acting up and I'm afraid of not getting this post up. I think it's cause we are getting thunderstorms and lightning going on.So if you have any questions please be patient on my return of your email.
Our challenge this week is 
We are celebrating kids going back to school Yipeeee !! Only a couple more weeks for mine.Although only two will return,Boy that was weird saying. So I used this cute bear tag
to add to my bookmark.Pretty straight forward.I used Dylusions spray(Lemon Zest) for the tag and some Bo Bunny background stamps.I was also able to use some new Tim Holtz dry glitter on his wings.Too much fun ! ! 

I am entering this tag into

New Sketch time at Graphicat Sketches

Welcome Monday ! Hope your weekend was good.Mine was hot yes but good.I got to be with family this weekend. I was able to see my Uncle who I hadn't seen in such a long time. Well since he had been in the hospital.He was in a horrible accident .He was struck by a van while driving his motorcycle.She had gone thru a red light and hit him on his side.He was clinging to life when we saw him in a coma. 

He had extensive injuries including the loss of his leg.He has spent the year having so many surgeries and now is going to therapy to learn how to walk.He was hoping to be able to see us all and be walking but was still in a wheelchair. But we are just happy to see him here with us. :) He was able to celebrate his grandson's bday with us.He was actually suppose to be at the party last year but of course couldn't.

So any way enough of my babbling,onto this fortnight's challenge at Graphicat Sketch Challenges.
Here's the sketch for you to play with.You have two weeks to play and you have the chance to win a $10- gift Certicate to Graphicat Design's Store.
Now you don't have to use a Graphicat image but we sure love it when you do :)

So I used this cute image from Mo Manning.I believe it was a freebie.I apologize for the bad picture it really is a pretty pink . It looks kinda purpley.It's not that color. I am not so happy with this card,but I think it was the heat that was making me cranky. I'd like to tell my husband I need AC in the room.It would certainly prevent me from melting and also protect his investment lol.
I was able to get the picture to show the pearl on his toes lol.

My little heart breaker turns 16

Hi I wanted to share my daughters 16 th Birthday card. I must say this one was fun to make.I used a Kenny K image Rock girl without the guitar.I had full intentions on using it but the coloring was NOT going well and I was getting cut it out,what ya do.? 

So I used some Heidi Swap papers ,love love.My daughter love the whole animal thing..leopard print,zebra stripe etc.Now what was cool was my first time playing with Ranger gesso and this Dylusions stencil brick wall. This stuff is fab for that texture look.Speaking of Dylusions I  also used the spray on the flowers and added perfect pearl heirloom gold to give it a grungy look.

Here is my daughter being spoiled getting her toes and nails done...
She got pink leopard toes and pink and orange Zebra nails.I wish I'd remembered to take a pic to post up here for ya :( She was wearing a dress hence the blanket lol. She loved the pedi chair it was massaging her the whole time .

Thanks for stopping by ,... Hugs

Nope not a card ! !

I know you're not going to believe what I have to share with you today.Nope it's not a card ! I know !!LOL It's been so long since I have made an altered item.This picture frame has gotten my mojo in gear. I saw it awhile ago and it's been on my mind .I finally just couldn't take it anymore and bought it.Although this was not the pic I had in mind to use but it seemed perfect with this paper. That is my middle daughter.Isn't she pretty.LOL Ok that's a mom's opinion.She is gonna be 16 on the 16th. And with all her medical issues she has to deal with, I wanted this to be special.So it's for her ! 
So here's a few pics of details..........There are so many details too list,so you can contact me about any that u wish to ask.LOL Sorry me being lazy !

After painting the frame with black acrylic paint,I spritzed with perfect pearls and Goosebumps.
