About Me

My photo
I am a mostly SAHM who is also a nursery/NICU nurse. I got into stamping about 9-10 years ago to pass the time. I have 2 kids (10 and 8) that are both in school full time and a wonderful husband of 14 years. We also have 3 Maine Coon cats that are part of our family. I really enjoy making cards and love learning new techniques. I am hoping to get more cards made now that my room is organized. Now if I could only find where I put everything...

SOG Color Inspiration Challenge

I received my Some Odd Girl stamp Sunny Mae the other day and I just had to ink her up.  I love this image.  She is so summery. I ended up making 2 cards.  I messed up on the 1st face and you know how everything else is just perfect and you think I will just add a few freckles...well that did not go to good and when I tried to remove them they smeared her touched up eyes.  Darn it!  Onto the next one.  I actually like her better anyway.  I did case a few of the SOG design teams ideas and meshed them all together and this is what I came up with.  Enjoy.

Here I go, another challenge to enter. Yay!!  I am trying to pick at least one challenge to do a week.  Then maybe I can work up to a few a week.  Here in Colorado it's been in the upper 80's and 90's.  I must say I am a wimp when it comes to the heat.  I love air-conditioning.
I whipped up this little Greeting Farm sketch challenge card last night.  I finally played with my Cheeky Geeky.  She is so much fun!
I used Jillibean Soup paper called Blossom Soup in a 6x6 pad, then a little Jillibean sentiment and some doodlebug twine.  I colored her with my handy dandy Copic markers and paper pieced the dress.
