Hi All! My prayers and thoughts have been going out to all of you and your family on the East Coast. If anyone needs anything, please let me know.

This precious stamp is "HYDRANGEA HUGS" from the Vault by Elisabeth Bell for SCACD. I have been wanting to color her for awhile now and finally got around to it. Sorry for such bad pictures I just couldn't capture the glitz and shine of the embellies or the image. She is colored with COPICS and highlighted with STICKLES.

These pictures are so bad. In person, this card is shiny and cute. The flowers are PRIMA. The corner embellies are from my stash and the ribbon is from Really Reasonable Ribbon.

SHOPPING ALERT!!!! Actually this should be a warning. Susana has rec. some of the cutest stamps and dies, embossing folders, and paper.

New Prickley Pear Stamps and matching (sold separately) Dies here (

New Couture Creations Embossing Folders (Stunner Alert!!!)

New (4) Jillibean 6 x 6 paper pads (scroll down 6 pads to see)

Everyone be safe !! Thank you for visiting.

Good Morning!

Well, this past weekend seemed a little cooler here. It was only 102-103 during the day, but it did get down to the high 80's at night which is a great relief from the high 90's. We take our little puppies walking around 8:00pm and by the time we get back home 30 minutes later we are drenched with sweat and so are they. Soon it will fall ! (lol) At least that is what I keep telling myself.

This adorable image is "WHAT'S IN THE BOX" peeker from THE PEEKERS #2 by ELISABETH BELL FOR SCACD. I am sure most of you have checked out the stamp set, just curious which is your favorite? I am going to have blog candy sometime in the next couple of months and just might include one of these sweet images.

As usual, the image is colored with Copics and the green bow and dots on the ribbon are highlighted with Glamour Dust Ultrafine Glitter Paint - Limelight. The beautiful DP is BO BUNNY 6X6 PAPER PAD - BLITZEN. I have actually used 3 different patterns on the front - stripe, presents, and another piece which I stamped the sentiment. I cut the dp for sentiment and the other part of the sheet is on the inside. The trinket is BO BUNNY TRINKET -BLITZEN.

I wanted to show you a picture of the inside because remember the piece of DP I used on the front where I stamped the sentiment - the other part of the paper is the ornament section which I used with the striped paper. Hope that makes sense. This trinket is also from the BO BUNNY TRINKET -BLITZEN.

Aren't these trinkets just the best? I love the quality and details.

This trinket is from the same collection, but I ran some ribbon through it and embellished it with a pretty green rhinestone.

Hope all of you have a wonderful week. Thank you for stopping by and for the comments, which are so inspirational.

Good Morning! Hope every one is off to a good start for the beginning of the week. I tell ya the more I color these Peekers the I more I fall deeper in love.

I especially love this one because of the little puppy. The name "Partners in Peeking" is a perfect name. My hubby and I rescued 2 little puppies 7 weeks ago when they were only 6 weeks old and they are always peeking into everything. Thank goodness they are small - chihuahua and pekingese. Okay, back to the card. If you haven't check out "THE PEEKERS COLLECTION" #2 byElisabeth Bell for SCACD you don't know what you are missing. They are super super cute.

This adorable image is colored with Copics and her sleeve and bow are accented with ICE CRYSTAL GLAMOUR DUST. The leaves are accented with LIMELIGHT GLAMOUR DUST. I have a closeup pic below, but it was difficult to get the true sparkle. What I like about the Glamour Dust is that it dries quickly unlike Stickles. Don't get me wrong, I love my Stickles also. The beautiful DP is from the BO BUNNY WELCOME HOME paper pad.

The trinkets from Bo Bunny are so nice and the quality is outstanding. This particular one is from the BO BUNNY - WELCOME HOME set.

What is really nice about the trinkets is they can be mixed and match. This key trinket is from the BO BUNNY - ET CETERA set.

All the gorgeous flowers are PRIMA. If you click on the pic it will enlarge and you can see the sparkle of the GLAMOUR DUST a little better. The sentiment is computer generated.

Thank you for visiting and I hope you enjoyed viewing my card. I really enjoy reading your comments and visiting your blogs.

REMINDER: Susana has a lot of new paper and products in stock. The new fall and holiday papers are over the top gorgeous.

Good Morning! Hope everyone stayed cool and had a wonderful weekend! It is still 106-109 degrees here in Texas and dry. Just the right weather for staying in and crafting.

Have I told you in I'm in love with the Peekers 2 Collection by Elisabeth Bell. You know how it is difficult sometimes to pick what stamp you want to do next, with this collection it isn't difficult you just want to stamp them all. This image is "In the Garden".

I know you get tired of hearing my childhood stories. Fortunately, I had a very happy childhoold. I can remember peeking through fence holes to see what was going on. Heck, sometimes I might still do that.(lol)

The DP for is My Minds Eye - Lime Twist - Life of the Party. I really like the paper pads then I don't have to look forever for coordinating paper. I even punched the butterflies with paper from the same pad and accented with Kaisercraft Pearls. The ribbon is from Really Reasonable Ribbon. Did you notice the trinket? It is one of the Bo Bunny Vicky Trinkets which Susana has on sale. If you have never checked them out, please do. You will want them all.

WARNING! If you go to the store be prepared to ooh and aww. Susana has the most beautiful paper pads and Trinkets.

Have a wonderful week and thank you so much for stopping by and visiting.

Good Morning! Well, it's gonna be another HOT day. It was 110 degrees yesterday and predicted to be the same today. (ugh) Good news is , it is August and this should be the last month of really hot weather.

Isn't this image fun? I can remember my kids sitting down and going through my purse. They thought it was so much fun. They found all kind of goodies. She is "Mama's Purse Peeker" from the THE PEEKERS COLLECTION #2 by Elisabeth Bell for SCACD. I have to tell ya, this collection has some of the cutest and most adorable stamps.

Of course, she is colored with Copics and accented with Stickles on her headband. There is a little gloss on the handle of her purse. Did you notice her cute little bracelet? These pearls were just the right size. Susana has Kaisercraft Pearls in all colors. The beautiful Prima Aqua Rose is also available at SCACD.

I am entering the following challenges:

Dutch Dare - For the Kids

All of the layers of paper are from the Basic Grey Paper Pad -Euphoria.


Susana has LOTS and LOTS of new My Minds Eye 6 x 6 Paper Pads (including holiday), Authentique Paper Pads, and BO Bunny Paper Pads and Trinkets.

These paper pads are so gorgeous, I may have to rent a small u-haul after I place my order.

Thank you for stopping by and paying me a visit. I love to hear from you.
