New Cards & Blog Candy Too!

I just have to write and let all of you know about Jacquie’s blog candy going on right now until October 15.  She has been such a blessing for me to get to know since I have joined the bellas.  I live with more than my share of migraines and somehow she knows when I am at my worst and one of her awesome cards will just show up at my door.  Today I received her Happy Hopper card and I can’t look at it without smiling from ear to ear.  Now tell me you wouldn’t smile every time you looked up and saw this adorable card looking at you.

She sent me this card…again just beause.  I love Halloween so this card is awesome and it came on a migraine day!

This is the first card she sent me…because I had a 4 day migraine.  I know the picture isn’t very good but you can check out her blog and see better picture of all of these cards.  Now you get the picture right?  Jacquie is the greatest and therefore her blog is awesome so hurry on over and check it out.

Now, believe it or not I actually made a couple of cards before I was put out of commission with this last headache.  Two of them are the new Whiff of Joy stamps and one is a stamping fella from a swap…he is for my BIL’s birthday.  I haven’t done too many guy cards, unless you count 4 year old guys, and I find them very intimidating.  Does anyone else have that problem or is it just me?

That’s it for my cards for now.  We just celebrated hubby’s bday and he was quite upset that I bought him a card so he says I still owe him one.  I just finished my granddaughter’s (and forgot to take a picture of it), darn it, my SIL below, my BIL above and still have to make my daughter’s, hubby’s, and SIL within the next two weeks.  No time for headaches!!!

I hope all of you are doing great and getting ready for Trick or Treat.  It’s one of my favorite times of the year and I look forward to it for weeks.  Until next time-Take Care & God Bless!

Hugz 🙂



Where It Starts

So… this is the card that hooked me:

My 50th Birthday Card.
My 50th Birthday Card.

A very dear friend of mine sent me this card for my 50th birthday.  I had to find out what stamp she used and what she colored it with.  Thus the beginning of bellas and copics.  So far I have only made a few bella cards myself and I must admit they aren’t the greatest but they are certainly fun.  Here is my first card! (Look familiar?  Copying is flattery right?)


I Finally Have A Blog!

I can’t believe it!  I actually have a blog of my own!  I have been admiring everyone’s blogs and had absolutely no idea how to create one of my own.  I still don’t!  I had my son create it for me.  Love you baby-mwah-mwah-mwah!!!

I am the very lucky mother of 4 beautiful children, 2boys and 2 girls.  Almost the brady bunch since we are a blended family of my boys and his girls.  I have 3 grandchildren, oh my god they are wonderful.  I also have 2 dogs under foot all the time along with a devoted hubby that likes lots of attention.  Needless to say there is not a lot of time for stamping.

I’m actually a newbie to stamping and a brand newbie to bellas.  I’m very intimidated by putting everything together and hoping it looks okay when I’m finished.  Your many blogs have helped give me inspiration and many ideas that I have tried to put to use here.  I know I have a long way to go but I’m willing to learn-much to the dismay of my hubby.  Every time I stamp I have to pull everything out and make a major mess on my kitchen table.  Does anyone have any tips on how to make a little less of a mess since I don’t have a craft room or area?

Okay I will stop rambling for now and try to figure out how to include a picture here.
