Barry Celebrates:

Good morning everyone!  What a nasty day it is out there, the grey cloud are zooooming past my craft room window.  Icky and windy.  But it is Friday - that's good enough for me :)

I wanted to create a card for little gentleman, so I dusted off Barry Peekers and tried to stay away from embellishments.

Card Ingredients:  StampFairy digi, Echo Park Spots & Stripes papers, Recollections cardstock,  Prismacolor Pencils (email me for complete list), Circle Nestie, studio g chipboard sentiment. Tools:  sewing machine, blending stumps, mineral spirit.

I made Barry for the following challenges: Crafty Sentiments - for children, CRAFT Challenge and Cute Card Thursday - animals, Make My Monday - animals for males,  Here Come the Boys - tiddly peeps,  Cards & Things - sketch:

And it's that time of week again to show you StampFairy's New Release - meet Molly Beach:

Spring Linda:

Good morning friends - I hope your week is going well.  We started off with beautiful weather, but now it is quite chilly out.  The tree leaves are starting to bud and my perennials are peaking their heads out of the ground.  I love this time of year.

I must have felt ambitious by trying scrap bits of paper for my base.  Piecing together the paper bits was rather time consuming and I think it should be referred as paper puzzles.  In the end though, I was able to use some saved scrapped bits and it compliments Spring Linda well.

Card Ingredients:  StampFairy digi, Echo Park Dots & Stripes papers, Recollections cardstock,  Prismacolor Pencils (email me for complete list), Circle and Labels 3 Nesties, Martha Stewart bakers twine, Doodlebug button.  Tools:  sewing machine, blending stumps, mineral spirit.

I made Linda for the following challenges:  My Mum's Crafts - great outdoors,  Papercraft Star - polka dots, Paper and Such - girl thing, Cutie Pie - circles, Crafty Creations - little girls, Creative Belli - animals.

Have a wonderful day!!!

Molly Friends:


Good morning all!  As I said last week, I took the week off. And by off, I didn't mean some tropical beach vacation.  Instead I spent time doing things around the house: painting walls, renovating, and going to work.  Pretty much everything the same minus crafting.

But I am back :)

I purchased another 30+ Prismacolor pencils - they were on sale for 83 cents each.  I now pretty much have the complete set and am SO excited to use them.  Prismacolor, you have changed my life!  My poor Copic markers have now been collecting dust since January, I am almost considering selling them.  Never thought that would happen!

(See?  Told you I was back...  with my snoozeville banter...)

Good morning all - it's been a whirlwind of a week and it's only Tuesday morning.  You know how you used to cram for exams, well I am craft cramming.  I have 40 (or so it feels like) craft projects on the go. My room looks like a disaster which makes concentrating and creating a bit of a challenge but do I have time to clean it up - nopers :)

With my morning rant out of the way...  the song birds are chirping their little hearts out and sun isn't even up yet - that must mean it's going to be a good day :)
