What a busy  year already... Happy new  year to all you lovely  ladies  who, like me, are addicted to crafting/stamping and just feeling  creative.

my little family  is growing,  we have GGD number two,   Ivy Jayne, the most delightful  little imp, already  loving to draw

and play with  her crayons..

who can believe how  quickly the years are flying by,  I wonder  how I found time to go to work!

 happy crafting  to one and all.

Gold Silver Bronze Mod Squad Challenge Blog

I'm still in Olympic mode so decided to use stars in gold, silver and bronze (well actually copper but close enough) to emboss, then I added Beth Silaika's new stamp set for Gina K Desgns "Lots of Washi"  and embossed the rings which reminded me of the Olympic rings in all three colors going for an ombre effect.  My stars came from GinaK's Picture It and Lazy Days of Summer and the congrats is from Theresa Momber's Up & Away for GKD.  I layered GKD's Pure…

Think Spring Mod Squad Blog Challenge

Glitter Hearts Mod Squad Valentine Challenge

This week's Mod Squad Challenge Blog is a valentine challenge to include hearts and glitter.  Hearts are easy but glitter and I have a love/hate relationship.  So since I just cleaned up my stamp room due to a sleepover with my two darling grandchildren I opted to use the Sakura Clear Star jelly roll pen for my added feature.  After all the stamp area must stay semi-clean for more than two days...doesn't it??

This is a card for Shawn's Mod Squad challenge "Are You on the CASE".  The challenge asked you to select a designer and CASE a card. I cased a card of Melanie Muenchinger's because I liked the elegance of the CAS design.  I was not happy with the coloring on my flowers, but this was…
