Blog Candy

Well I hit my 10,000 hits and forgot to offer up some blog candy so I said Bla Bla Blog Candy.
I will post a picture of my offerings as soon as I get a set I ordered from Flourishes. I'm sure it will be here soon. If you would like a chance for a Christmas Flourishe set plus ribbons, papers,
mono adhesive and some other things I will stick in please leave a comment here and I will randomly draw a winner. You will have until this Friday which is August 1st. I will put a picture of all my candy as soon as possible. Good luck to all. Pat
This crazy girl and the bla bla are stamps made by Stampotique.

Friday Challenge Christmas in July

This is a Penny Black Poinsettia and the Merry Christmas is from DeNami. Just used a marine color blue cardstock and for my ink I used Kalidescope. Added a bit of turqois glitter to sparkle up the flower. Simple yet pretty.

Poppy by Flouishes

Just bought this set from Flouishes and fell in love with the poppy image immediately. Just used water colored pencils, my Nesties for the oval and the oval scallop, a bit of ribbon and penned a gold border around my black paper. The phrase is Hero Arts. Easy card with not too much coloring. Hope you all have a blessed week.

Friday Challenge...Purple Flower

Well this image came by way of a swap and no idea who puts it out. Love the Iris flower so thought it would be good for this challenge. Plain old water colored pencils and a bit of the glitter pen, add a few gold brads and I'm done. Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend. We are hitting the 90's with plenty of sunshine. It's awesome weather to float in my pool chair and enjoy.

Friday Challenge Thank You

Well since you are supposed to stamp simply I did just that. Easy with just the "thank you" by Stampendous and a cute popped out flower from Sandylion. Love those little $1 packets at
Michael's. Makes this a very easy card indeed. Have a wonderful weekend to you all.
I'm going to watch my niece's boys play baseball in a big competition. Go Nick and Alex !!!!

Happy Wednesday

Well yesterday a friend took me to lunch at the country club she belongs to and we had a delightful lunch and visit. An old friend of mine is the owner and it was nice to see him and catch up a bit . Anyway I wanted to send a "thank-you" card to my friend and this is what I came up with. Haven't done paper tole in ages but thought I would give it a try. The stamp is from
Stamp It and very simply I did it in a gold embossing and then used my faithful water colored pencils. I'll just put my note inside and I'm good to go.

Friday Challenge...Girlie

Well if you want girlie....go to You ain't gonna find girlie with me !!
If you like hot and spicey you came to the wrong blog, I'm into soft and fluffy (see my slippers?). I'm an old broad who loves to grab a cup of java and kick up my heels, well maybe not quite kick up but you know what I mean don't ya?? I just look crabby, I'm really a crazy old lady who loves to have fun and the sparks in my life are the fireworks on the 4th. of July. This is an Art Impressions stamp, just done with water colored pencils and a bit of chalk dusted around " Maude". You gotta love her. The inside of the card say's..."So your mom is not a Barbie Doll...adjust!" That stamp is Imaginations. Have a great weekend and a Happy 4th of July to all you here is the USA.
