Well.. this is kind of a unfair advantage .. lol simple for me though.. ( for anyone who does not know.. Barb over at Stampitcrazy is my mother). Any way .. Here is the card I made for the Haunted Design House Stampitcrazy challenge. Didnt think it turned out to bad considering I am under the weather. Stupid head and chest cold. Managed to make this while I had a little energy in between my nyquil pills. lol . I tried the masking technique. Didnt work out how I pictured it, so I did it my way . Simple black and light gray ( which I realized it looks white ) colored paper were used. Of coarse images and sentiment are from Stampitcrazy. Yellow marker for the moon and light green for the goblins.

Me and Brie, 24th birthday, god ! next year we are gonna be half way to 50 lol..

Me, Derek, and Brie.. again at the club for her 24th ..
Me and Brie's middle aged daughter , Natalee at the Mississippi Valley Fair. You dont realize how much the merry- go - round makes you dizzy until you get old . I had to stare at the ground the whole time.. Almost got sick LOL
Yup ! ZZ Top at the Fair! Went with my dad. I dont go to alot of concerts, so I actually thought they put on a good show. I wanted to go to make my ex jealous MWUHAHAHA. He always talked about how he wanted to see them in concert. haha .. sucker..

So it has been a while since I have been on here.. With the summer months, we all seem to be busy.. I have been busy working and hanging out with a friend that has moved up here after 5- 6 years.. I have been making cards but never get around to posting them lol .. here is what I have been up too !

Well , it has been a while... you know how the summer months go.. anyway .. here is my entry for the Haunted Design House Netherworld Nymphs Challenge. I have been kind of in a crafty rut lately considering everything thats going on.. and not to mention my crafty mentor has left me to my own despise .. :) .. anyway... when I seen " feminine nature spirits".. my first thought was the elements so thats what I stuck with. Images are from Stampitcrazy. Colored paper, markers and embellishments were used. Sentiments were computer generated..

Here is my card for the Our Creative Corner Weekly Sketch. challenge. Hope you guys like it. :) Sentiment was computer generated. Pink Flowers and colored paper were used.
I love doing sketch challenges.. it gives me something new to try.. I dont want to be the person who does the same look everytime. So I thought I would give Friday Sketchers a try. I seen the sketch and honestly it scared me a little LOL. This is my first challenge with them. I thought "That is alot to put on one card". I like making simple cards so it was definitely a challenge. But decided to try anyway and I kinda like how it turned out. I tried to follow the sketch as closely as I could. Hope you guys like it :) Dragon stamp was provided by Stampitcrazy. Love tag, patterned paper, color paper and pink flower embellishments were also used .

This is the other card I made for the Tuesday Morning Sketches that did not make it to the challenge.. I figured I couldnt enter them both in lol .. but thought I would let you guys take a peek..

After much debate , here is my card for the Tuesday Morning Sketches challenge. After making this card, we realized there was a spot for a sentiment on the card. I liked this card the way it was, so I decided to make another card. After I finished that card, I still like this one better. So I added the little sentiment "magic" . Honestly dont really know why I choose that one. lol .. Brown, yellow and patterned paper were used, Dragon and sentiment were provided by Stampitcrazy and then yellow embellishments were added. Thanks for looking ! Until next time :)

Here is my card for the Tuesday Morning Sketches step ladder challenge. Being a beginner, I thought this was a great way to try new things.. I have to admit I got a little frustrated. lol Definitely harder to do then it looks. Me and my mom ( Barb at Stampitcrazy ) did this challenge together. She got her card on the first try. I had to watch the video 2 times ( step by step ) and measurements were still off. Finally by the 3rd time I got the base of the card and decided to do it on my own without the video. LOL So.. finally, after all this was said and done, I got my card done. Still had fun learning this technique. Thanks for looking ! :)... And also Cat image is also stamp by Stampitcrazy and sentiment was computer generated.

Here is my first entry for the Tuesday Taggers Vintage challenge. Never tried this before so I thought I'd give it a try.. not to bad. Sentiment and Clothing rack are stamp decals provided by StampitCrazy ( also comes in stamps). Black buttons on top and side were also used.. Hope you like it !

Here is the card I made for the Haunted Design House Trubie or Not Trubie challenge. I've honestly have never seen the show so I watched a couple trailors that were linked.. got the bottle idea by a trailor that a guy was buying Tru-Blood by the case..and also the fang-tasia by the night club... anyway ... simple black, red and white colored paper were used.. a blood dripping paper puncher, jewel embellishments, and sentiment was computer generated..Black ribbon was also used on top.. Girl image and bottle viles ( wrote in tru-blood ) are provided by Stampitcrazy.. For never watching the show I think this came out pretty good ..

And lastly probably till next week , is my card for the Haunted Design House Sinister Shadows challenge.. Cat stamp was provided by Stampitcrazy. Basic colored paper were also used.. The sentiment is a quote made by Terry Pratchett. But because of length, I had to modify the quote. It is actually " In ancient time, cats were worshipped as gods, they have not forgotten this" .. Tried to go pet cemetary with this one but couldnt find a good sentiment.. so this is how it came out .. Hope you enjoy.. I must admit though.. its hard for me to think " Dark " LOL
Here is the card I made for the Tuesday Morning Sketches challenge.. I wanted to keep it simple with this one.. Simple blue colored paper was used.. on the purple paper I used the swirl stamp ( provided by Inkadinkado.com.. bought at local craft store ) to make a patterned paper.. and sentiment is also provided by Inkadinkado. Little star fish embellishments also used.. Thanks for looking !

Here is the card for the Fresh Brewed Designs recipe challenge.. I have to admit.. I had no idea how to put all the recipe together lol .. After thinking bout flowers and ribbons, all I could think of was Hippie child.. So .. For the 2 pattern paper I put those on top and bottom.. 2 Flowers on the side.. a Peace sign button for the extra.. and the ribbon I decided to use to make the peace sign a pendulum.. Kinda funky card but it came together.. also.. the Hippie girl is a stamp decal and also available as a stamp at Stampitcrazy.

Here is the card I made for the For Fun Challenge... Stamps were provided by Stampitcrazy. Pink colored paper , red ribbon and jewel flower embellishments were also used.. Thanks for looking :)

Colored paper, bling ribbon and jewel embellishments were also used. Thanks !

This is the card I made for the fresh brewed designs challenge. I thought of a ton of different ways to create this card but I thought the message should be the main focus. That we need to thank our soldiers and remember our veterans. I have great respect for anyone in our military because I know I would not be able to do what they do today.. Even if you dont support the war, you should support our troops. I can not put into words the respect and honor I have for these people and I pray that they make it home.. Until till then, keep them in your prayers.. God Bless
The picture was found while searching web and it has a lot of meaning to it. followed by simple colored paper, star embellishments and ribbon.

This challenge with For Fun Challnege was definitely a hard one for me. lol not so much the design but the colors also .. but had tons of fun with it and LOVE trying new designs and getting the creative process going. Colors needed were pink/red, green, blue, yellow. So.. I used green and white for the base of the card and also the sentiment. Pink with the flowers and stamp (Provided by Penny Black Inc. in Berkeley, CA ) , added yellow ribbon and flowers and lastly blue butterfly stickers .. Hope you Enjoy !
Mountain Dew from the time I wake up to the time I fall asleep. So when fresh brewed designs came out with the challenge of making a card based on favorite beverage, guess what my inspiration was ! I tried in incorperate the colors of the logo into the colors of paper and ribbon. Mountain Dew stamps were provided by Stampitcrazy. I had to sacrifice a bottle for the card. I cut out the little logo . This was a fun one for me :)

Here is my card for the Tuesday Morning Sketches challenge.. first off I would have to say this one was hard .. because I think , in a creative way, there are alot of colors that go together. So I used my favorite. Black and Pink.. then came the Girl Skull , by StampitCrazy. For the second part of the challenge was glitter.. might be hard to see but I added pink glitter into the bow and the ribbon had a little bling to it also.. The stars and sentiments were just randomly picked and printed off. Added a couple rhinestone jewels to the corners and middle of star for a little more glamour .. Hope you enjoy !!

Here is my first card with the Tuesday Morning Sketches challenge.. Girl and Lips stamps were provided by Stampitcrazy. Hope you like it. :)

This is a card I made for the Haunted Design House Voodoo Witchery Challenge.. I actually did some research for this challenge and came up with this card.. the Voodoo doll and Goth girl w/ skull are provided by Stampitcrazy.. the voodoo doll is the modern day belief of voodoo.. the goth girl w/ skull represents Marie Laveau, who is also known as the Queen of Voodoo down in New Orleans, where she is also buried... The x's represent the symbols people draw on her gravesite and leave items ( such as candles, beads, etc..) as offerings for good luck and blessings.. had fun with this one :) here is also a picture of Marie's grave site in New Orleans..

here is a card I made for the Haunted Design House Macabre Monday Challenge.. Challenge was supposed to be based on a song, but I made this for the group instead ( Insane Clown Posse ) although their lyrics sometimes dont make sense, they do actually have a couple good songs that if you listen to the lyrics, actually makes sense ... Any way here you go...
