Happy Saturday Everyone

Just got done reading all my favorite blogs, it seems like everyone is in the mood for creating. I have a few more chores to finish and then I am heading into my craft room. I have a few stamps that I want to play with and I mustn't forget Valentine day is coming up quick I should start on my cards for my kids and hubby.

Lately I've been trying to figure out my Photoshop Elements. I think that I am going to have to find a book with some tips. If you have any tips to pass on I would love to hear them, just leave a comment.

Well off to finish my chores then to fix a nice healthy snack and off to the craft room. Until next time thanks for stopping by.

Pink Pajama Party

Participated in the PP party. Boy was the girls wild last night. You could tell they all were so tired. The Pink Stamper had two big announcements one she made another DVD and the one I am jumping up for joy for is that she now has her own line of stamps. Two sets to be exact. I can't wait to get my hands on them. Well just thought I would pass on until next time thanks for stopping by.

Valentine Blog Candy

One of my favorite blogs is giving away some amazing Magnolia stamps on her blog.
The give away is open until January 25th. Go to for more information.

I've been surfing the net for some inspiration lately since I seem to have lost my majo and I have found so many new sites that have wonderful digi stamps. I like using digi stamps but there is nothing more exciting than to hold a stamp in your hand. So I don't think I would ever go all digi but some of these images are just to hard to pass up. If you notice on the right hand side of my page I added one of my newest favorite spot to get digi stamps. You should check Soft Pencil website out.

Well today I plan on getting into my playroom and fooling around a bit with some of my new stamps that came in from Greeting farms and a coupler of the digi stamps I purchased. It seems like a great day to do this with all the snow that fell lately I really don't want to live the house. Well until next time thanks for stopping by.

Your the best

Here is my first card that I lifted off someone. I lifted this card off the talented KWerner'a blog. It's on her Make a card Monday video that was uploaded today. I am using this card as a thank you card to give to my Brownies for the gifts they gave me over the holiday.

This card isn't one of my best I was just playing around with a new stamp set I picked up this past weekend.

It seems that I lost my spark to create and I think I just need to get into my craft room and play for a while for it to come back. Well I will keep this post short until next time thanks for stopping by.

Done, Done, Done

I think finally the holidays are over in my house. Attended my last holiday party today. My DH Aunt had her annual breaking of the ginger bread houses today. The kids just love this party so much. They love to destroy things is what I observed today. Now that this party is behind me I need to concentrate on making the kids thank you cards from their party. Also, I'll have to make a few for my brownies that gave me gifts too. I really enjoyed the Holidays this year but I'm ready to reclaim my house and get back on a schedule. The kids start back at school this Monday part of me will miss not having them around, but the obsessive clean freak side will be doing the joy, joy dance again. Well I hope you all had a wonderful holiday and I can't wait to see what 2010 will bring all of us. Until next time thanks for stopping by.
