I love Riley!!!! It's too bad but you can't see the clear Spica glitter I colored the snowman with. It's suttle but so suttle we can't get it onto our blogs. LOL! I also colored Riley's scarf and hat with the red Spica glitter. The big snowflake is chipboard and I covered it with Stickles and punched 2 holes with my Crop-o-dile so I could thread the ribbon through.
Here's another House Mouse image given to me by Laurel. I just bought the little gingerbread guy and girl at my LSS yesterday. I also bought and added glitter with the new Spica pens, which I don't think you can really see in the picture but IRL it's nice and suttle.
So this is the 2nd card I made just like this. I didn't get a chance to post the first one because I took it to work to enjoy for the week and someone liked it so much I couldn't help but make their day. I just love the owls and I love the google eyes. hee hee This was a fun card.

These guys are so darn cute!! Laurel sent me some images for my bday and this was one of them. She also had sent the Candy Cane card scent to go with it. I used this sketch from Taylored Expressions, who by the way, has a fantabulous blog!!!!
This card was done a few weeks ago but I haven't had a chance to upload anything until now. Gee can you tell? Is your Inbox full yet? I like these American Art stamps but have a tough time coloring their arms with Copics!!!!! Yikes! Break out the Prisma's next time! LOL!

Normally I don't post what I buy because it's always in little driblets ...... is that a word? However, last weekend was a HUGE exception. My mom, her friend Ralfie, Simone and myself went on a shopping trip to Kamloops. It's about 3hrs away but we don't have half the stores they do! This was my big splurge!! We had sooo much fun and laughed soooooooooo hard all weekend! It was great! The Christmas Stack is so very cool and my sister bought the Glitter Christmas Stack. Great to have someone to split things with! Christmas Stack, Fiskars cutter, Gems, Prima Xmas flowers, Xmas stickers, rectangle Nestabilities, Chalk inks, Snow punch and Halloween ribbon. Yippeeeeeee!

I was telling my mom and her friend, Ralfie last weekend that once in awhile Simone and I have very similar tastes in card making. Here is one example that I could sooooo see my sister having made. But she didn't. I did. :) Isn't this image cute?!! I can't wait to make more. I really need to call in sick for work one day. LOL!
This would be my stamping enthusiast. Doesn't he look impressed? Actually, he's usually worse. We call him Mr. GrumpyPants most of the time. He has a 'tude. My DH took this pic last night. He was trying to get on my scraptable and when I told him no, this is what he figured "no" meant. "Okay, I'm not REALLY on your table.......well not all of me anyway!" WHAT A BRAT!

It all started out with a simple comment "I can send you some if you like". I can't even remember the stamp but Christine liked something on my blog so I mentioned I would send her some. Well, why send just 1 image? I did up a little package and off it went. This is how she responded!!!! OMG!! I will be coloring until the cows come home which I am FINE with! I was dumbfounded when I got home after work one day! She even sent me a couple of stamps she had duplicates of from Whiff of Joy!! I couldn't believe it! The card she sent is so cute too!
THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!!
