FRIENDS......

This card is a dedication to all the beautiful friends in my life.....thanks for all your love and support always!!!!! I am where I am today because of all of you.......you have all inspired me and I will forever be grateful for that!!!!

Two of my sweet friends, Sharon and DeeDee sent me several Magnolia stamps to try them out. I have had them for several months but was always intimidated by all the detail on them. This morning I woke up and said to myself...."Today is the day"

HALLMARK SCRAPBOOK now carries these amazing stamps as well as the Copic Markers. I still do not own any Copics but they are next on my wish list.

I also used......Diamond Glaze, Star Dust Stickles, Tim Holtz Distressing Ink and Stazon Ink which can all be found at HALLMARK SCRAPBOOK.

In addition, I used Nestabilities, CTMH Card stock, Pattern paper and Sentiment.

Thanks for stopping by my blog and leaving comments!!

EASTER BLESSINGS.....

Well.....I AM BACK!!!!! No I was not on vacation, just been feeling blah lately :o(

The other day I had a Cricut MB member PM me about my BABY word book.......we then started emailing each other back and forth. I called her to walk her though the process of making this book and teaching her a few things about the DS. We talked for almost 2 hours and during this time, she made me laugh so much.......she must have thanked me a gazillion times for helping her but the one that has to say THANK YOU is me..........because of her great spirits, I got my creative juices back and I will forever be grateful to her for this - THANKS AMANDA.....you are such a sweetheart!!!!!

OK - so my very first project after these terrible 3 weeks is this absolutely ADORABLE Bunny Shape card from THE CUTTING CAFE. Regina always designs the CUTEST cutting files and printable stamps. I used my Pazzles to cut the card out in white card stock and the top layer in pattern paper. I then used the Easter Sentiment printable stamps also from THE CUTTING CAFE. If you haven't gone to the site yet, you have to check it out - it's amazing and NOW, until March 29th, you can win a SCOR-PAL - all you have to do is leave a comment and one lucky person will win.......GOOD LUCK!!

My Pazzles and Distressing Ink are from HALLMARK SCRAPBOOK. They still have their HUGE sale on Cricut Cartridges starting at $29.99 so make sure to stop by. They also have a huge sale on all SIZZIX items and now they have the Magnolia stamps and Copic markers IN STOCK - how cool is that????

Thank you for stopping by :o)

Hugs to all,
T

TAGGED!!!



OMG - this is so funny!!!!!! DONNA.....my sweet friend and fellow DT designer at both THE CUTTING CAFE and the BBTB has tagged me. This time I decided to play along.

The rules of this game are: go to your picture file and blog about the 4th picture in there, then tag 4 other bloggers to do the same.

A few of my friend will remember this picture LOL.......it's my sweet daughter.......sometimes when I call her and call her and call her - I will walk into her room and she will be hhhhhmmmmmm'ing away blocking me out - just as she is in this picture LOL (She gets this from That's so Raven)

Since I can't pick 4 of my friend because I love them ALL....if you want to play along, just follow the rules.

Hugs to all,
T
