Happy Little Stampers 2nd release

Hello... Welcome to the Happy Little Stampers 2nd Release blog hop. 

You should have arrived here from Susan's blog. Isn't she talented? Great inspiration! If  you did not  come from there you can go back to the  Happy Little Stampers home page and start from the beginning if you want.

What a great release KYLIE has in store for you. 

I made a couple of cards for you. The first one is using the Whimsical Friends set. I absolutely love this set.. it has some really cute images in this set. 

I love these little birds they remind me of all my friends getting together and chit chatting the day away at the local watering hole. I colored them with the Zig Clean color pens covered with wink of stella. 

 The next set is the EVERYDAY SENTIMENTS. This set is the best when it comes to sentiments it has every thing you need for any occasion. I decided to get a jump on my Valentines's Day cards

I used some of the stamps from the mix mash to create a pop of interest. 

The mix mash set is next

This set is really cool it has lots of circles in it. You could create a bokeh effect. The arrows is what drew me to this set. I love the 3 different sizes it has in it. It too has some great sentiment's for all kinds of occasions. Stay tuned for a shaker card from this set in a few days. 

The next set is called Birthday Friends

I adore this little hippo... he is just so happy. 

Well that is all for me.. but there are a couple of more sets in the release I don't have but if you don't forget to comment on each of the blogs in the hop you could WIN a mystery prize

up next on the hop is Gail. I am sure you are going to love what she has to show you!

Missing You

Hello, I have a card I want to share, but a little story first. My hubby and I miss each other all the time. He works nights, I work days. He is coming and I am going. He looks this way while I am looking that way... yikes. Did I mention he is in a different state. Illinois to be exact. Did I mention I am in California.. yea I know... Missing YOU is very appropriate here. Ok on to the card.

I love this stamp set... It is from Happy Little Stampers and is called whimsical friends. I think it is very appropriate because my hubby and I are very whimsical 

see we had this done in Vegas where we went over the weekend for my daughters 21st Birthday (yikes) my baby is 21. I don't even want to say that 3 times slow let alone 3 times fast. 

I think it fits us. 

I love this little elephant he is just so happy.. what ever life brings him he can handle.. and that is my hubby. ( by the way his nick name is VITO but don't tell him I told you )

and the little bird is me, looking in the wrong direction all the time. LOL

I gold embossed all the images and copic colored them used Avery ELEE double pierced rectangle dies, ink purple around the edges.. and WaLa a card, that represents ME and VITO.

This card is for the Simply Create Too blog where I recently became DT member
I sincerely hope you will hop on over and see all the other wonderful creations by the other design team members, and maybe make a card or TOO!

I hope you enJOYed.

October Christmas Challenge

Do you ever have those moments when something just pulls together and it was not even the direction you were going... This is one of those cards... I knew the topic was going to be Poinsettia.. so when I won the Ellen Hutson Mondo Poinsettia set I waited for it to come in the mail so I could play with it for this challenge.. well I stamped and colored, and then did it on water color paper, and water colored it..then did it on Neenah and colored with copic  markers...and nothing was coming out the way I envisioned...... and then I had this scrap piece of paper left over from the blog hop last month just sitting on my desk starring at me going... SEE ME !! USE ME!!!... and thought I wonder what that would look like and how would I incorporate the red... and Wa la... and I absolutely love how it turned out.

This stamp set is from Ellen Hutson.Designed by Julie Ebersole.. and I won it it a blog hop just like we had last month... Isn't that cool... out of 336 commenters I won...LOL I am still pinching myself. God knew I would need if for this challenge ;). 

The sentiment is designed by non other than our fearless leader Kylie Purtel. Is is part of the mixed Christmas sentiments... I love this stamp set. I know I have said it before... but I do!! It goes with all my Christmas Images.

I used vesafine ink and embossed with clear because on shiney foil paper like this it would take forever to dry, and probably never would. I used red and gold stickles for the embellies simply drawing  dots and lines.. 

I hope I have inspired you to think out of the box to create and just let it flow.
I can't wait to see what you make.

I hope you enJOYed
