Hi Everyone
Just one day left to the release of new stamps at along with some great Blog Candy I'll be offering.
Today I've got three cards to share. I am enjoying the Hope and Grace set so much. I decided to take a few different directions than I usually do with my cards. I've been collecting Sketch images since I started blogging and I decided to look some up and try them out.
The first card is from the Hope and Grace set from . When I first saw this set I though the little short haired image would be great to color up more like a little boy. So in this card I tried to use background paper to help support a more little boy theme.
The second card is the oh so cute Reeta out for sale this Friday at . I thought she was super cute. I love the little kitty. And well....I had to color the kitty pink of course.
The third card is also from the Hope and Grace set. I was channelling the singer Pink when I put this card together. I thought she looked a little bit of a rebel and had that grungy rocker edge.
Have a great day everyone and remember to check out the blog tomorrow for a chance to win some Blog Candy.
Thanks for looking around,
Tammy

Broke out some Stickles and that cute butterfly punch from the Martha Stewart line.
Love that butterfly.

Tammy

Hi Everyone

I'm back and ready to get my hands inked up again. I'm super excited about the release of some new this Friday. Woo Hoo!! And you know what that means....YES you guessed it more blog candy of Stamps!! The release on Friday has some super great stamps. I've not decided just yet which ones to give as candy but I know whatever it is you'll love it.

Yesterday I picked up some great Sassafras Las paper. I've been excited to get it and I just so happened to see it yesterday at Michael's.

The first card I've used with a little Sass. For the second card I used probably my very favorite stamp from TGF . I loved how my pink deer came out a few weeks ago and I wanted to see what I could come up with using pink and blue for a baby card. I think it turned out pretty cute. I added some of the mushrooms from theset. On this card as well I used the Sassafras Las paper and was inspired by the paper to create the card.

Thanks for taking a look around.
Have a great day.

I've had a lot of fun with it so far.
Thanks for stopping by. Have a great weekend.

Hi Everyone
Just a quick card I was inspired to make when I ran across this scrapbook paper at Michael's a few weeks ago. Make sure and check out this cute over at .
She is one of the newest in the great line. Now Sheriff Ian has a partner in crime...or law as it were.
I've used the Stampin' Up! Pink Pirouette card stock. I still can't get a picture taken well of that card stock. It always gets so washed out.
Thanks so taking a look around.
Have a great day,
Tammy

Hi Everyone,
My clever (or not so clever) title was a shout out the the show 'If these walls could talk.'

I've got some great news to share about a new digi stamp. My friend is always coming up with fantastic scene stamps. is an artist and when you see her work you'll know what I mean. She is so wonderful at perspective and balance on her cards. Well...a few weeks ago I saw and fell in love with it. I wanted that wood floor. I found out that it was actually her own design that she had drew. WOW...I was so blown away. is letting me give you some sneak peeks of the floor this week. will be releasing the stamp on her blog on Friday, April 24. You won't want to miss it. I think you'll find all kinds of great ways to use this wood floor.

Also don't forget to check out blog too. will be providing sneak peeks this week as well.

I decided to case a card that Michelle did . I really like the rug on her floor too.

For this card I thought that this cute little Tilda was just perfect. I imagine it's Summer time and she's just getting ready for bed, but before she does her Papa is going to read her a bedtime story first. So she's grabbed her favorite blanket and set it on the floor. Now she's ready for her story.

Michelle will be releasing her wood floor digi stamp this Friday, April 24. You won't want to miss it.
I'll be giving sneak peeks of this wood floor this week along with Lisa. Lisa has some great work too of the digi wood floor. Make sure and check her out too.

Thanks everyone for stopping by.
Have a great Sunday,
Tammy



Hi Everyone
Hope your weekend is going great so far.
I have a couple of cards to share today from .
If you've been following by blog for to long you've probably figured out that my favorite color is pink. When I see a new stamp I'm always thinking..."What would that look like in pink."
This cute turtle who's lending a hand to a cute bunny was no exception. This stamp i part of the set over at . When I first saw this set I thought of the day's growing up when we would go to the lake and do some water skiing and fishing. I was never really any good or interested in fishing. But...my idea of fishing when I was a kid was to go down to the boat dock, lay on my stomach with a piece of fishing line wrapped around my finger with a hook at the end and a piece of bread that I mashed against it. Oh what fun that was....Catching those litter perch was a blast. Well, it was a blast until I have to take the fish off which was always a big ordeal getting my little brother to take it off for me. :-)
So I can image our little bunny friend taking it easy with Mr. Turtle down at the lake.

For the second card I've used the set from . Remember the day's when you could actually spend an afternoon all by yourself reading a favorite book. I want to find those days again!

Have a great weekend everyone. Thanks so much for taking a look around.

Hi Hello Kitty Peeps!!
I decided to make hello kitty black instead of white this morning. Have you seen the MAC Hello Kitty Make-up? That's what inspired me to do HK in black. She's sporting a bit of an attitude today.

I wanted to also share the cute new from that was just released this week. She is super duper cute. This cute little butterfly seems to have gotten stuck in a pile of glitter though. I think she's ready to go to a butterfly ball! Hm...I wonder what her Butterfly Charming would look like?

Home at Last


Hi Everyone
It's been a whirlwind of a week. I'm glad to be home for a while. :-)
Most of the week I spent out in Las Vegas soaking up the Sun (since it's alluded us here in Missouri for some time) taking in a few shows and being stingy with my money and only playing the nickel slots. It was a lot of fun...lot's of walking as you know....lots of people of course.
I got some great RAKs in the mail while I was gone. Super cute.
Here are a few of them.
This is a SUPER CUTE Easter card from I'm sooo loving this. This is one of the new Sizzlit Die's from Sizzix. I can't wait to get mine in.
This cute little Band-Aid tin was altered by my deer friend
I love the colors and paper that she used. I kind of want to get a paper cut so I can use one of these cute Hello Kitty band-aids.
This is the super clever card that Joni sent with the Hello Kitty altered Band-Aid tin.
It's been done with the Forest Friends set from The Greeting Farm. Super cute.
Don't you just love how she did the tree and the cute leaf and butterfly accents.
Super cute.


Hope you have a great day. Just two day's left to the new release of The Greeting Farm Stamps. Make sure and check out for some sneak peeks of the new releases.

Don't forget to come back on Wednesday. I'll be giving away some BLOG CANDY from The Greeting Farm in celebration of the new release.

Thanks for stopping in.

Spring is near

Spring is near...or so I thought. Just a few snow flurries but it's still a bit cold around here. Our sweet Tilda is setting on the stone wall outside the barn looking for Spring. I hope she doesn't have to wait long.
For today's card I've used a Magnolia stamp Ballerina Tilda from the Pink collection. The stone wall is also from Magnolia. I've used Copic to color in the stamps.

I took a bit of a break this week while I was in Vegas. We had great weather so that was nice. Coming home to cold rainy weather was not so nice. I've missed my stamps though, and am very eager to get some work done. I've got some great cards coming up for the April 15th release over at The Greeting Farm so make sure and come back by and say Hi.
Have a great weekend and Easter everyone.

Mild Breezes and Trendy Trees

HI Everyone
Just when I thought Spring was finally here we got some sleet and a few snow flurries.
But I'm not going to let that stop me from looking forward to Spring.
This is a card layout that I've seen before and just loved.
I've use the Stampin' Up! Trendy Trees stamp set. Such a cute set and very versatile.
The paper is from Basic Grey..another great staple for my background paper stash.
Hope everyone has a great day.

Never Ever


Hi Everyone
I had a lot of fun working with this new stamp set called from .
It's a new set just out yesterday. When I was a very little girl I can remember going to one of the tiny theatre downtown to see Peter Pan. It made such an impression on me. Well...maybe it was the little boy playing Peter Pan that made an impression on me. :-)
The first card was me trying to get outside of my comfort zone. I was trying to create some sort of setting for them. The cobble wall definitely reminders me of the old fences in England. So I just thought maybe these guys might be hanging outside.
For the second card I followed my standard comfort zone. I really like the sentiment. I think it would be a good card to send to my Dad on his birthday. He's always young at heart. Then I'd make some cute comment in the card about me being his little fairy or something corny like that.
Thanks for stopping in and talking a look around. Don't forget about the blog candy post from yesterday. You have until Friday 4-3, 9:00 p.m. CST to enter.
Good Luck everyone,
Tammy
