Cutting FLANNEL with my Cuttlebug!

I have made TONS of Cut & Tie Flannel Blankets and I have lots of squares left over from cutting the corners of each one out.
Cool eh?

 I tried using my Sizzix Originals Die's to cut out shapes. I figured I could use them in card making or scrap booking some how. :)

 I'm just wondering what kind of glue would be best. Anyone know?

They all cut great. Next I'm going to try felt. :)

New card: Looks like a little kid did it. LOL!

It's hard to see but their are snow/winter words embossed on the blue.
I had fun and that is what counts.
 This really does look like a little kid put it together. LOL.

I embossed the envelope too.

My entry for the JustRite Friday Challenge! (3 photos)

Here is my entry for the JustRite Friday Challenge 

049 - Technique: Direct to Rubber


 For this challenge I used one of the JustRite Stamp JB-09710 Beautiful Blossoms Borders & Centers!

I stamped the outside oval in Memento Tuxedo Black ink and the flower with Memento Cottage Ivy ink.

I love using Copic Markers but this image was so beautiful I didn't want to touch it.
I cut the stamped image with the largest Spellbinders Die in the Dahlia set. I inked the outside with the Memento Cottage Ivy ink.
I then added a strip of yellow ribbon down each side and a square of striped card stock behind it and put squares in each corner. I then added the smile face and the 'thinking of you.

Thanks for looking,

Card I just made for a challenge.

I'm on a yahoo group where the challenge was to use this digi file anyway we wanted.
This was fun. I really enjoyed making it.

Did 5th and 6th scrapbook pages!

I've decided being 55 years old I just don't want to have the bother of DOING all the photos I have. It would take me a million years.
I'm going to do a 3 albums. They will be MONTHLY, CHRISTMAS, and WEDDING.
The monthly one will have what happened in the month and some crafts I did. The Christmas I'm going to do every year and try to do a few past ones and the wedding will be ours first (we don't have many photos) and highlights of our youngest son that got married 7 years ago and our oldest son that has been married 3 years.

 Here is the outside cover. My husband and I back in 1973. 

 I looked like a scared little rabbit. LOL. I was a week over 18.

My wedding was shared with my twin sister. :o)
COOL eh?

New nails: Wet 'N' Wild "Blaze and Konading. :)

This Wet 'N' Wild "Blaze nail polish was a gift for Christmas from my son Ron, daughter in law Erica and grandson Drew.

This is called "Blaze" and it was two coats.
Pretty eh?
My skin is SO very dry and my nails split so much I can't grow them out. 

I did the Konading with Konad Plate M57 and the Konad White Polish.
Cool eh?
Took this one early this morning after my workout. :) LOL!
See? You can wear nail polish and WORKOUT. :)

I just made Valentine cards for my grandsons!

 This is for my almost 20 month old grandson Mason. 
I colored the image with my Copic Markers. :)

 See the little Kitty Cat and Mouse on the envelope?

 This was so much fun to make. :)

 This one is for my 8 year old grandson Drew. 
I also colored the image here with my Copic Markers. I didn't have
the right blue shade though to make the cupcake wrapper look right. :)

 See the little smiling Kitty on the envelope?

I so enjoyed making this one to.
Happy Valentines Day early everyone,

Valentine card:

Here is the newest card I made.
I colored the heart holding gal with my Copic Markers. I cut her out with my new Cuttlebug and the Classic Oval Dies from Spellbinders Nestabilities and then I inked the edge. :) I also embossed the background with my Cuttlebug using A2 Embossing Folder called Heart Blocks.
The right side is part of a paper doily that I inked up.
The word love was a stencil meant for cake decorating that I inked up.

Card using JustRite Stamp! :o)

Here is my newest card. It is only my 14th card but I'm learning.
I used my Spellbinders Nestabilities "Label Eleven" to frame the very pretty JustRite stamp from the Original Large Oval set called "Beautiful Blossoms Borders and Centers"
I then inked up the outside edge of the frame a little and I used my Copic Markers to color the floral center.
It was fun.

SO much fun,

HELP me I can't stop making these cards. LOL.

HELP me I can't stop making cards. LOL.
I wanted to practice with my Copic Markers so I figured I might as well make a card while I"m at it. 

 When I embossed the front it was a tight squeeze and it took some of the color off so I took the rest off with a nail file block sand papery thingy. I love it.
I put a slight embossed edge border on my envelope.

Didn't do too bad with the Copic Marker coloring eh?

My newest card. I'm SO loving this.

This card took me a while because I'm just learning but it was SO very much fun to make. It was a challenge in a yahoo group I'm in.

 I did the envelope with the same embossing as the front of the card.
This was the first time inking up a brass stencil, using brads and my first time using a "Bow Easy"!

The inside of the card turned out pretty too. :)
LOVING my newest hobbies.

My 3rd and 4th scrapbook pages done!

I have decided seeing I'm 55 years old with TONS of photos that I would just work on three albums. One is weddings which will be ours, our sons and any grandkids that we may see get married. I will do a monthly one starting last month that will include things that happen in the month and any crafts I do and a Christmas one. :)
I've already shared my Christmas ones here which is my very 1st page:
and here:
Here is what I did today:
 The month of January was our NY Eve party with our grandson, our oldest sons 31st birthday and my husband and I starting our workout Power 90. :)

This is what I played with in January. Cards, cards, and more cards. :)
