Sorry this is late......had to help my ailing MIL. Anyhow, had to do this the old fashioned way by printing out the comments, cutting them up and having my oldest son draw the name.........

Kathy W
who said: Wow! What awesome blog candy!! I am loving Night of Navy, Green Galore, and either Tempting Turquoise or Cool Caribbean or both. I saw this combo on an Old Navy shopping bag and have loved it ever since. I love designer paper, and have been pulling out all kinds...lately Bo Bunny and from the mat stacks you get at JoAnn's (I think they're called Die Cuts with a View?).

Rockin' Blogger Chick

Well, Melanie aka Batgirl - Melanie's Madness has nominated me for the Rockin' Girl Blogger. So I am to post this banner on my sight and nominate five others. My only problem is, is that I can't figure out how to get this image on my sidebar, so if anyone can enlighten me that would be great!
I'm working on putting together my 2500 hit blog candy, so stay's next!

Hmmm.....I actually got to stamp! YAY!

A little 5x5 art journal, covered in Notations paper and mod podged with some self adhesive die cuts from the retired friends and flowers scrap kit. The little friend label at the bottom is from the retired SS kit, just delightful. I attached a little pen holder with jumbo eyelets and I stamped the small flower from baroque motifs with river rock ink in triplicate in the top left and bottom right corners of each page on the inside. (not shown)
This cutey was cased from Beate. She made this cute ladybug from the pick a petal set from the new fall/winter collection. I had to make it. I LOVE IT! I don't know if you can see, but I glittered the antennae and the trail. There is also some paper piercing right along the bottom. On the inside I stamped 'from the heart'.

Thanks for visitng....Next candy!

Not my most creative.....

But they'll do in a pinch. I really have to start stamping at a more decent hour. Or at least take the card pictures at a decent hour. Taking them in the middle of the night does them no justice!

I feel so loved....

Thank you to everyone who took the time to make and send me a card for my birthday. This has been the best one ever! Happy mail is exactly that.....Happy makers! This card was taken at night so it kind of looks yellow, which it is not. It's made with confetti white cardstock. Can you see the glitter on the dogs hat? This is from Nadine Russell from New Brunswick AKA nsruss on splitcoast.....Thank you Nadine, I love this cute dog!
This is the anniversary card I made for my husband. Our anniversary is the 14th. I absolutely just love the double stitched ribbon. I'm going to have to order all of them I think.
Doesn't this look like a movie strip? or film strip? What a fabulous idea! This card is lot brighter IRL. The picture does not do it justice! This is from Carol Walberg in MN. AKA momcgw on splitcoast.
I love these colors together. And I believe the paper is from the sellabration SS kit. Which I LOVE. I really wish it would make it into a catty! This is from Erin with the DDSS round 8 group. Of course, those sneaky people over there keep it all a secret. They used my address as the return address...Thank you Erin, whoever you are!
I really like the punch out and how the sentiment pops through it. Of course these colors together are awesome! This card is from Chesterfield MI, but of course from the birthday club. This came with no name. Whoever you are, thatnk you for acknowledging my birthday!
This is from Sharon Click from the DDSS Birthday club. I really like this cuttlebug folder. I don't have it, but I KNOW Tracy has it.......:) Maybe she'll let me borrow it sometime. Again the taken with teal and black are awesome together.
I am working on projects for the blog. Just with our anniversary yesterday and other things during the week, (mainly the heat) I will post as soon as they are done!
Thanks for coming to visit and thanks for the creative ladies who shared their talent with me!

Secret Sister's ROCK and Some very AWESOME RAK's - Thank you!

This package of goodies graced my mailbox on my birthday. Look at the stunning card and of course all of the yummy ribbon. Oh, I can't wait to dive in! Thanks DDSS big sis! There was also a package of metal edged tags.....sorry it didn't make the picture.
Here is an awesome BRAK from Greg Price - Isn't it terrific! I didn't like the Zoofari set at first but I'm seeing more and more cute stuff made with it and it's starting to grow on me. hmmmm
I think this is from my DDSS big sis, but on the return address it's my address and it says BRAK Club? or something like that. Our wedding anniversary is on the 14th. I've always wanted to see this technique in real life. You can click on the picture to get a closer look. It's the cracked glass technique. HOW COOL! I will have to buy the supplies and try this out for sure!
This is from my DD Secret Sister. Anyway, I saw this at Regionals and was boggled. This is such a cute little purse card. Thank you Big Sis!
This is the purse card folded up.
This great BRAK is from Angie Williams in Saskatchewan. Isn't it SWEET? Pun can stop giggling now....haha

This fantastic "Photo Card"? is from the Summers Family in London Ontario. What a great idea! It can hold six pictures I'm thinking, one on each side. They just roll out. So ingenious!
This beautiful card is from my DSS. She is from Enderby, BC. The butterfly is hand cut out if you can believe it. Isn't it beautiful! I love it.
This is also from my DSS in Enderby. Again the butterflies are hand cut out. It must have taken some time. Thank you Big Sis....I love your creativity!
This is a terrific BRAK from Amber in Rochester MN. I just love the scallop border with the punch outs. I have to remember this for a future creation.
Thank you to each and every one of you for thinking of me. You're all too kind and very Crafty and Creative! Kudos!

Sympathy Cards for a couple of Sue's and Mike's Patients

Can you spot the difference? ............
