I am back!!

WoW, Its good to be back and creating again.
Its been awhile since I have uploaded anything, or made any cards.
I was moving scraprooms and in the process of moving my stuff from one room to another.WE had the old room cleaned out and all my stuff piled into this room.I went to work on painting and putting my old room back to a bedroom and then put my back out.I spent most of my vacation flat on my back and couldn't move.I had pulled and strained a muscle.It was very painful.
I had to take a few days off work as well.I am back to work , but can't do any heavy lifting . It still hurts when I bend down.
I haven't been making any cards.My room is a mess and I have things piled everywhere.I have to dig to find things.So today I finally got in to clean off
my desk and got to work on finishing of some swaps I was in. They are a few days late.Now my desk is a mess again,lol.
While I was off with a bad back , Dh got all my shelves and pegboard up, so its just a matter of sorting my stuff and putting it away.
I am off tomorrow and hoping I can get some of it done.

Hallloween card for a swap I am in.
MS pattern paper, MS punches,

everyone 's take on it.

I made this card to send to my daughter.She is not feeling
good and I thought it would cheer her up.She has been having rotten luck with sickness lately.Awhile ago she had to have her jaw broken and reset.
She had her mouth wired for a couple of mths.Then she fell down the steps and broke her foot . Now she has a nasty kidney infection.She was in the hospital on her bithday. I hope this card cheers her up some.
K& CO Pattern paper,WM ribbon, Verve stamps.

Thank you for visiting and please come again.I am getting close to my 30,000
posts and will giving away some candy.

2 Stepin & 6x6 OSW!!

Sharon is celebrating her 1 year Blogoversary and is
giving away goodies and a chance to be guest designer on her blog.
Sharon is so talented and so inspiring, I so would love to be on her team.
Her first challenge was to make a card a 2 or 3 step card and since I didn't have
any 2 or 3 step stamps ,I choose to do the shadow technique found here>>
SCS. This was the first time doing this and it took me several trys before I found the right stamp.
I finally settled on this stamp from Inque Boutique. I had this set for
some time and this is the first time in using it.I was quite pleased how it turned out.

Yummy Bo-bunny pattern paper, MM rinestones, Ribbon from my stash,
MS ink,Threading water punch.MS butterfly punch.

Verve's 6 x 6 OSW(onesheetwonder)
Julee's is hosting this challenge on Verve's SCS forum in honor of her next release.I so love Julee's sketches and challenges and try not to pass any chance in taking part in them. Julee rocks the sketches and challenges.
For my OSW I used a piece of 6x 6 paper from MM FA LA LA collection.
This paper is so yummy, I had to pick up several sheets of it.

MM "FA LA LA" collection pp,sparkly ribbon from my stash,
HOTP brads and pinwheels, Verve Winter Wonder and Seasonal Circles
I love the look of the cards, they are so clean and simple.

Thanks for visiting and Have a wonderful day.

Sweet Baby!!

I've been meaning to do this set for a baby and when
JustRite hosted the Stampin Champion Challenge,
it gave me the push to get it done.
I have had fun using my Justrite stamper and can't wait
to get more of their stamps.

For this set I used BG" Oh baby Boy "PP.
My ciricle nestibilities, JustRite Monogram stamper,
some ribbon from my stash .

I altered this Bandaid Tin to hold some Baby Q'tips ,
Made a 2-5-7-10 Box found here>>SCS .So fun and easy
to do. The box holds a Bar of baby soap.

I made this holder for a bottle of baby powder following
a tut found here>>>Angie's Tut.
I added a baby's first manicure set, so cute.

PLus I made this Onesie card using Lauren's
tut found here>>>Onesie Tut.Isn't this so Cute!!!

To finish it off I bought a few baby items such
as a little bib, hat, faceclothes,cream,babyspoon,etc.
The tin I placed everything in was from a gift of
bubble baths.
I think it makes for a very nice gift!!

I made this card for an image swap I was in.
The image is Inkadinkado I believe.
Paper is from MY Minds Eye Collection,
I used Julee's Mojo 51 sketch.Julee rocks these sketches.
I uses Verve's grateful elegance border and friends always
stamps.I added some stickles.
Thank you for visiting and hope to see you again!!

Dh worked today , so I ran a couple of errands and then
went to work on my old scraproom.I started by sorting
thru some of the stuff and seeing what I could toss.
I only tossed stuff that was garbage like empty boxes,
empty pkgs.No idea why I was holding onto this stuff.
Tomorrow I am hoping to get the shelf unit cleaned out, so
Dh can move it into my new room.It holds mostly books
and magazines, and some sewing supplies.
Gonna purge most of that or find somewhere else to stash
I want to put it to better use, like hold my stamps, etc.
After I got tired of sorting, I decided I want to do some creating.
I haven't done much in the past few weeks, since I have my stuff
piled everywhere.
I have missed many sketch challenges, etc and I am hoping to get back
to doing them after next week.I love doing challenges and sketches.
Today I wanted to do Halloween , so I went thru my papers and this is
what I came up with.

Pattern paper is from Cloud9Design"Get Spooky Collection"
Justrite Monogram stamper.WM ribbon,
Circle nesties,MS punch,Embellies from $store.
Book mark from WM.
I got the idea for the juice bottle from Angie.Its such a cute idea.
For the nugget holder I used Carla's online class idea.
Its so cute and easy to do.I changed it up a bit .

Thanks for stopping by and have a awesome day!
