Ok...so I promised last post I would show you the cute owl card right...well I just wanted to update first as he's not alone...he has 3 brother/sister cards that go along with the explanation of THAT card. So for now...here is a card I made for an Easter swap over on Joani's Yuku group. (link over there--->).
Hope you had a great Sunday and here we go to a start of a new week!
CS/DP: SSun, WWhite, OOlive, & Bright White

I decided to make a mini magazine holder that can easily hold 1/4 sheets of DP or CS to have at hand or it also holds up to 6 A2 sized cards depending on the bulk. I used DP I hadn't used in a while now and even though I'm not all that happy with the outcome...I'm just distracted to make something WOW...so here it is! Hope you like! Oh...see the little owl peeking out? I'll be posting him next post I have a chance to make...he was from a challenge from Joani's Yuku group and MAN he's my favorite! It was a challenging swap/challenge for a contest. If you would like to make one of these mini magazine holders...check out my girl Joani's tutorial and just her blog in general...she makes awesome stuff! Also...give her group a looksie if you like to swap and make great friends! The group link is over there-----> on my sidebar. This is how I actually look once I've done some shopping at Target or Michaels! :)

P.S. Thank you all so much for the thoughts and prayers. The big guy must be listening because mom is a bit better. Still in the hospital but in great hands. I'll post another update as soon as I know more on her condition. You guys have no idea how much your comments of thought and prayers really mean to me. Love you all for that!
I did however got to craft a bit to distract myself and actually managed to make 3 cards and color 6 images...but I feel burnt out now. I'm headed to bed but wanted to post so you'll know why I'm MIA. I will be around for Saturday's Challenge hosted by Mel. I have been meaning to use what she posted so I guess I'll do some more crafting to help dull my pain. See...I even got a little smile in! :)
ANYWHO...let me show you something I made last week for my SIL who had a baby girl. She had her baby shower but I couldn't attend...but still thought I'd make her something handmade and go all out...lol. I call it "all out" because this was my very first time making one of these...a diaper cake AND a blankie baby!!! It has NOTHING to do with stamping...but I thought I'd still show! Thanks for looking and I'll post something stamped OR colored tomorrow! Ciao!

Here is a card I made for the hop...it's out of this world! LOL! My DS helped me put it together...well...I did the putting together and he told me what I should use. I had initially just wanted to make a card depicting Space Ian who hadn't seen ink yet...but when my son painted the idea of using a spaceship and alien...I HAD to go for it to make it WOW! Then my little one...Lizzie...chimed in and said I should add a springy star...lol. Then I had the "genious" idea, I say genious and I'm sticking with my story :P, because I used glow in the dark fabric paint for a few stars and the aliens spots. WHAT??? Yeah...glow in the dark paint! I tried taking a picture of it in the dark...but I couldn't fix a setting on my camera to capture a good picture. :(
Anywho...now that you're done reading my blah blah...jump on back to Club Anya to check out more creations! Don't forget to shop once the hop is done...10 PM to be exact (CST)...you are bound to fall in love with at least one (if not all) of the Ian's and Anya's being released! I know I love them already!!! Also...don't forget to join the Anya chatter over on the Club Anya Paper Crafts Planet group! Join the chatter this afternoon once you're done hopping! There will be door prizes and just fun company!

Here is another card I made (of 4) that are also for the pet swap. This one is a 3X3 though! I really like making these mini cards. I used The Greeting Farms Wild Things set. I have birdies...so I had to get one spot for them! They are wittle birdies...so I think the size matches the pets...lol. I once again used LV's Copics. I lost that list of colors used too! I tell you...if my head wasn't attached to my shoulders...I would loose that too!
