Orly Luxe

I thought I would do my nails up quick before I left for the day. My daughter in law Erica and I are going shopping for the day. 

 This is Orly Luxe!
Two coats.

 I was in such a hurry I didn't even put a base coat on. That's a first. I totally forgot.

I love how Orly polishes go on. Almost no clean up.
I don't know if I will Konad this tomorrow or not. :)
Enjoy your day,

BRIGHT colored card to celebrate 1st day of SPRING tomorrow. :)

 The words "thank you very much" is for Spring arriving tomorrow. :) It is a nice bright sun shine filled day today too.

I LOVE embossing envelopes.
Happy SPRING tomorrow.

Avon Jade and Konading with M22

I had to hurry as I have to leave in just a few minutes. I can see I have a little more clean up to do. :) Sorry about that.
 I had to oil up because I'm so dry. :) 

 This is Avon's Jade. It goes on really great in two coats.

 I used Konad white and Konad Plate M22 with the four leaf clover design for Saint Patrick's Day. 

 :) I drink a ton of water. You wouldn't think I would be so dry.

I haven't done my nails much at all this year. I think this may be the second time. 
Have a great day,

Don't faint....I'm doing my nails!

Don't faint girls. I'm doing my nails. I have the two coats on and had to put a ton of oil on my skin just so my hands would look half way decent. I have never had such crappy cuticles and dry skin in my life.
I've got to wait an hour or so to do Konading and then I'll be back with photos. :o)
Have a nice Saint Patrick's Day,

Latest card:


I made this for a challenge on the Card Camp Yahoo Group. Link is on the right if you care to join. The challenge was one I had to think of. I said to pick your favorite color and use a triangle somewhere. 

I love lavender! 

I love the embossing on the envelope.

I'm really enjoying this stamp that Celeste made me when I donated for her son to attend the memorial Ceremony for Pearl Harbor in December. You can read about it here: http://touchedbyabutterfly.blogspot.com/2011/02/gift-from-me-to-you-for-your-dontations.html
Enjoy the rest of your weekend.

Little guy I colored with Copic Markers today. :)

Had a lot of fun coloring with my Copic Markers today. Hope to learn more about shading and how to blend better. :)

Challenge I'm entering "Spring Card"!

A yahoo group I joined not long ago called Copic Musketeers is having a challenge
to create a "Spring" card or project. http://groups.yahoo.com/group/copicmusketeers/
We must incorporate a homemade flower into our creation. I gave it a whirl.

I used my Copic Markers that I'm fairly new at to color the digital stamp. I got her for free at http://beccysplace.blogspot.com/ She is very talented and very generous. :)
I cut the X-Press It card stock she is on with the biggest Spellbinders Labels Eleven die!
I then inked the edges. The tag I cut with The smallest Spellbinders Deckled Mega Rectangles Large Die and inked the edges.
The flower was cut on DWV Card Stock with my Silhouette SD. I crinkled them up and placed them one on top of the other and added a brad. I added a strip of card stock down one side and rounded off the bottom two corners of the card. 
It was fun,
