Maggie, you are definitely a Mama’s girl. If she’s in the room, you always make a beeline to her. I don’t get to see you often, but it didn’t take me long to figure out that you would only come to me if your Mama wasn’t in the room. I have to be really quick if I want to steal any kisses!
Thanks so much for stopping by! I appreciate you taking the time to leave a comment. Until next time....

I used Flourishes stamps Humming Along for my card. I colored the flowers and the humming bird with Copics, then added a little shadow around the images with the Copic (c-1). The sentiment is Papertrey Ink's Through the Trees.
I'd love to tell you that I got it right the first time...but I'd be lying. However...it only took me 3 tries to get it right. Actually, I finished a card and thought I was finished, then decided to add a little Twinkling H2O...and guess what?! I totally messed the card up! Grrrr..... Hate when I do that! Anyway, this is the finished product, and I'm definitely going to leave it alone now.
Thanks so much for stopping by! Until next time...

For this card, I used a red cardstock base. The three panels are done with some red textured paper from my scrap bin - each section mounted on gold cardstock (slick finish). The sentiment is from the Flourishes Christmas Wreath set and was stamped on white cardstock from Flourishes . I cut the oval panel with a petite oval Spellbinder die, and then used the companion scalloped petite oval from Spellbinder for the backing. I punched a couple of snowflakes with a Martha Stewart punch and added a little sparkle with stickles. The poinsetta and leaf are Prima blooms. The gold ribbon is a metallic ribbon and added just the right amount of elegance. It's difficult to see on here, but I also sponged some Galaxy gold ink on the oval cut with the Spellbinder and then added a thin line around the outside edges with a gold pen. I even finished the inside of the card.
Now...adding it to my stack of Christmas cards that I've finished. Maybe this year I won't be rushing to finish cards two weeks before Christmas!
Thanks so much for stopping by. Love your comments and appreciate you taking the time to leave a little luv. Until next time....

The requirements this week (at Styles Ink) was to create a holiday card using NO white, NO cream, NO red, and NO green. Geesh! This is a difficult one for me...mostly because I think holidays are red and green! Therefore, I'm a little late with my OLW challenge because I have had a very difficult time making a card that fit the challenge requirements! Anywho...here's what I came up with:
This card is NOT cream...it's actually a soft yellow. Couldn't get the camera to give me a true image. Of course, it's probably not the camera...I'm sure it's a USER problem! LOL!
I can't remember who makes the lamp post stamp. I took it out of the package and now I don't have a clue who makes it! It's a beautiful stamp though, as are all in the package. The Sentiment is from PTI stamps. I love PTI stamps! I stamped the image in Memento Cocoa, then I inked my stamp up with Galaxy Gold pigment ink and stamped again over the brown. I couldn't get it to show up, but there is a fine gold look to the brown ink now. It's really pretty, so I wish you could see it! Drat! I did the same thing with the sentiment stamp.
The "brick" path was drawn with a gold marker. At first, I just drew a line to ground the lamp...then I started doodling with it and messed it up, so I had to make bricks. I think I kinda like it now....
That's it for this time. Maybe next week will not be such a difficult challenge for me! LOL! Thanks so much for stopping by! Until next time....

I used a white card base. All papers I used were from my scrap pile. The blueberry stamp is from Flourishes Berry Sweet collection. I stamped the blueberries on Flourishes white cardstock (it's a very thick cardstock and I LOVE it!). I colored the berries with Copic markers, then cut the berries out so that I could pop dot them on the white oval cut with the petite oval die from Spellbinders. The scallops behind the white oval was cut with the petite oval scallop die from Spellbinders. Added a little faux stitching to the blue mat.
That's it for today....Until next time...
