Happy Birthday Mssss Vicki G. :)

Stampotique has a NEW challenge goin on startin today.  The DTS' own Vicki Garrett is celebrating her birthday (glad it is her and not me...he he he he) so she is setting the challenge to make a humorous birthday card using STAMPOTIQUE stamps.
This is SKULLBOY from artist Janet Klein another fav of mine over at the STAMPOTIQUE store.   The dp is all scraps left in my "Halloween box" from last year!  The sentiment is computer generated since skullboy was screaming it at me!  lol   Hop over to the DT challenge blog and have a laugh today at all the really really funny cards the rest of the dt have made then grab your STAMPOTIQUE only stamps this time and make someone else laugh for a chance to win a $30.00 gift card to the store.  :)

A book sharing..

I am working on a little scrap book of my mom for my youngest sister.  My mom died when I was 17 and my youngest sister was only 8.  She has been asking for some of the old pics of her and I thought it was time I put some of them together.
 I adore Vicki Chrisman's blog and I asked her to send me some of these die cuts figuring it would make this book come together easy.  :)  She sends so many gorgeous papers and I think she is still offering them. Above  on the left is my grandma and to the right is my mom and her dad.  A little vintage mixed with shabby.
Oh and notice the little top flap of an old sewing pattern...that was a suprize in the envelope with the die cuts...
Love the scissor punch I got ...want to use it more.  Vintage buttons from local antique mall.

Her 8th grade graduation...I even made one of Vickis' flowers with a book page  :)
All this trying to use what I had handy with odds and ends. TFL!

Snowy Fran...

Been a while since I stamped , a few bee stings on the hand and arm will do that to ya!
 Here is "snowy Fran" from artist Daniel Torrente over at  STAMPOTIQUE.  She is perfect for the "Less is More" challenge I think.  Stamped on Neenah cs and colored just a bit with copics, this was sure a challenge for me!  Snowflakes sewn on with some silvery thread from JoAnns and the sentiment is computer generated. TFL !

Meet "Mela"

Long time no post!  That darn life just keeps gettin in the way :)   Here is "Mela" from STAMPOTIQUE.  Fall is in the air and yep it's my favorite time of year.  I am blessed to say I live in the country and LOVE it.  The leaves are turning and falling now and I cant get enough of this season..  Mela is colored with copics and I picked up this dp at Michaels from Recollections called "midnight magic".  The prints are so rich and Halloween is a great time for card colors!
