The Dancing Nuns! I made this card (Ode to Ouiser Boudreaux) last October for my mother to give to one of her friends for her birthday. Well, my mother has a friend in Florida who has a birthday this coming week, and she asked me to make one more. She’s quite sure that her friend will thoroughly enjoy it! Quite frankly, this is one card that I myself enjoy making . . . it makes me want to put in “Steel Magnolias” and watch it once again! Someday I will find the perfect images to work with all the one-liners in the movie .. . . I’m working on it! The nuns were colored with Copic Markers and then die cut/embossed with Spellbinders™ Circles. Instead of using pearls on this card, I decided to keep it more simple and used White Opal Liquid Pearls. I doubled one of the new Spellbinders™ Borders (Fair Isle) for my border at the bottom on the card. The computer generated sentiment is tied to a vintage button from my stash. Here's the inside Images: Joy from Mo’s Digital Pencil; Sentiment (outside and in) computer generated Paper: BasicGrey Urban Prairie; Neenah Classic Crest Solar White;... Continue reading

I know it’s a little late in the day for coffee, but I’m still enjoying the second pot of the day trying to fight a headache and lack of sleep. So either grab a cup of coffee or whatever you drink (baileys?) and join me . . . The other day I showed you another example of using Spellbinders™ Labels Eleven and a floral image from I mentioned then that the image would probably become a card and I finished it this morning. When I was searching for a name to call this technique nothing came to mind right away, so I settled on 3D Images. Since I made the first post with this technique, I’ve heard from some of you and also read, that this is also called a pyramid card . . . well hell that certainly makes sense . . . I will blame my lack of imagination on drugs. If you watch the video tutorial closely, you might find glazed over eyes! Yes, I’m sure you will. Well anyway, here’s my finished project. I also thought it would be fun to post a close-up of all the layers. I’ve seen some of you making the... Continue reading

Happy Monday! I hope you had a great weekend and if you are home and not at CHA, that you’ve been blog browsing like I have. I can’t seem to get enough photos of all the new product and my buds having fun . . . . as I sit in my recliner . . . saddened that I’m not there . . . For those of you posting, PLEASE keep it up! Since I can’t show you any new product from CHA, I can share something I received from The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store last week. I not only got The Stamp Simply Lilac Avenue Kit, but I also got the new JustRite Seeds of Kindness and My Garden Sets! Here’s my first card made with The Stamp Simply Lilac Avenue Kit! The ribbon that comes with this kit is absolutely luscious and the paper . . . flocked, glittered, shiny . . . just gorgeous! After embossing the petunia in gold embossing powder, I water colored the image with Ranger Distress Reinkers. Oh, and the image is stamped on white illustration board and then die cut/embossed with Spellbinders™ Labels One. KaiserCraft Pearls were used to line the top... Continue reading

Good Thursday morning! I’m here with my morning putzing around on the computer, doing little of nothing. Oh how I love when the house is quiet . . . no phone ringing, no dogs barking or whining . . . you gotta it. Thanks again for all your well wishes and emails over the last few days. I have to tell you that I'm doing fabulous darlins, just fabulous! The scar is healing nicely and there are little bitty hairs growing back. The only thing truly bothering me is the pain associated with the nerve endings coming back to life . . . wicked little shooting pains every whip stitch. I just pop a handful of Tylenol and keep on going (and sometimes I sleep them off . . . . Even though I hated doing it, I did have to cancel my trip to CHA. I’m so disappointed that I won’t be seeing all the new product but most importantly, I’ll miss seeing all my stamping buds! I was a little worried about how I would do with the change in cabin pressure and my ears and head . . . so I’ll be rocking away wishin’ and hopin’... Continue reading

(yes, I'm still on coffee today) Hey y'all! Can you believe it's me again with another post today? This might be a big DUH! moment because I forgot something earlier today. Sadly I can no longer blame it on painkillers. Which is another story in itself! Mallory was home over the weekend and we ordered Tumbleweed. I asked for some type of chicken enchiladas or something (I really don't remember because I didn't like them) because I hadn't had them before. Well at least I didn't think that I had. As we sat around the table that night I made a comment about them and how I had never had them before and didn't want them again. Well, Mr. Stodgy and Mallory both dropped their forks and looked at me in sheer amusement. Mallory informed me that I had had them before, I said the same thing and didn't I remember. DUH! NOPE! WHEN? The night after my surgery was I was loopy as a loon . . . that's when! I didn't KNOW I was that out of it . . . apparently I was. Now to the point of this post! I meant to add my card using...

First, if you are here and you haven't received an email from Feedburner, you probably need to re-subscribe to this new blog. I'm sorry that you have to do this, but I just can't figure out what is wrong with transferring your email addresses to this feed. It's supposed to be easy according to Typepad, but then again . . . if its easy, it might be too good to be true. If you've successfully done this, I would love to hear from you and how you did it! This afternoon I moved the laptop back into the studio and picked up all my mess from the Spellbinders™ Surprise Party. When I had a clean and organized work area once again, I felt like being a little creative. Actually, I wanted to make one more 3D image using the Spellbinders™ S4-246 Labels Eleven. Now I haven't put the 3D image on a project yet, but I do want to share what I've got. Now here's what I was really going for! The negative version of the above image. I can't decide about this negative 3D image. It will be very difficult and rather awkward to put on a card. I'm... Continue reading

Welcome to the new Walkin' on the BAD Side! I'm testing here to see if my email subscribers carry over from one blog to another. Hopefully they will, but if you have problems getting an email, etc., please send me an email. I know some of you already have questions, but hopefully it will work out on its own! That picture in the post below, that's my dad racing in the NASCAR Sportsman Division at the old Beach Race Course. He sat fast time that year of 119 mph. Pretty cool huh? I've been working in my down time to get him and my uncle inducted into the Kentucky Motor Sports Hall of Fame . . . I did too! They'll both be inducted on August 15 this year. Continue reading
