A little rain will fall

sun moon stars

Hello everyone, I’m so glad to be back, I have missed all my friends. Things are looking up. My stampqueen account is closed. That is sad, I have had that account for more then 15 years. Here’s to a new beginning.

I’m very late in posting my card for squigglefly challenge.  It started on Monday July 26 and it ends on Sunday August 1. So you do have a little time. This is what is called a Tent Topper Card and that is what the challenge is here is where you can find the directions for making the Tent  Topper Card. http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/resources/tutorials/tenttopper/  It is real easy to make. This one is one of the NEW images that was just released, this image is one of Cheryl  Alger wonderful images. It is called “Rainy Day”. Also the saying is a NEW image, I think it goes perfect with the image and that is one of Roanne Mathias sentiments. It is called “sun moon and all the stars sentiment”.sun moon stars copic markers 

These are my copic markers I used to color my image. I also used Spica Glitter Pens lime, yellow, clear, brown, orange, pink, and black. I also used the copic Multiliner black. The paper is from The Angle Company it is called Kaleidoscope Bites. Around the image I used Martha Steward Double loop punch set. Corner rounder punch. For the saying it was Paper Scrapers punches scalloped square 1 1/2 inch and 1 1/4 inch. I also went around the the image with some Brilliance ink color sky blue.

Just want to say Thank you to all my friends for being so kind and helpful with everything I have had to go thought. Believe me it has not been fun at all. But I’m back and I feel good and I would not want that to happen to anyone. I hope you have a wonderful week. Stay safe



Hugs, Patricia

Cards we made at The Diva's Stamp Club

Here is Lee's Creation. What is so nice is how everyone's card is so different. I just love that.
This is one of the really strange way to introduce some of my friends cards. At club we had several girls that did not make it this month. So if you are just starting to read this you might want to start at the button of the page. You will understand as you read.

Same here is Created by Kathy P. and we all put the card together and made it our card.

The upper card was created by Kathy K. I have to tell you what a great idea she did she ran out of ribbon so she put the ribbon she had left on her printer and copied it and what looks like ribbon on my card is the paper she copied it on. I think the copied ribbon looked better than the ribbon and was so much easier to work with.
Now the card above was created by Jodi. I colored it and lkayed it out the way I wanted it to be.
The lavender card here was created by Chris. I colored it and layed it out the way I wanted it but Chris created the idea for the card.

Also as I'm adding the cards it looks like I'm doing this backwords, sorry about that. As I load a picture it put it on top not under, so I guess I will be doing it that way for now. Boy, my life has turned upside down.

I really have now Idea how these is going to turn out. I upload on Windows Live Writer and imports everything to my blog after I have everything entered.

At the stamp club we all create a card and bring everything so the other girls can make the card also. We do not color then, we just give idea on how we would do the card and bring the stamps and we do the cards as we would do them. We spend pretty much the hold day together. We all bring something to eat and we eat good. Then we do some things that we have not done before or some of the girls have not done. We have a lot of fun and it is good to get together with friends.

These are the cards I made but I could not decide if I like brown pearls or the white pearls in the middle of the butterflys so I made two and let then decide what they liked. I did not think to take pictures of how the other girls cards turned out.

The way this turned out is why I like using Windows Live writer. I do not have any of these problems.
Hugs, Patricia ♥ ♥

My guys all they ever want is CARS, What about yours?


Mostly fast and small. So I thought I would make a card with a car on it. We are now into Challenge #3 at Donna's Den of Crafts challenge blog. The theme of the challenge is "It is a Man's World". It starts July 12 and ends July 25. So it gives you lots of time to come up with an idea and post it on Donna's Den of Crafts challenge Blog. Have you had a chance to stop by Donna's Den of Crafts store lately she has gotten some new things in the store. At some pretty good prices like she got in some Hampton Art fresh flocking in 6 different colors and what I think is cool is you get 4 shades of the colors in each package. The colors are pinks, browns, grays, oranges, greens, and turquoises.

You have a chance to win not one but two stamp sets from Jayne Netley Mayhew. Here's a picture of the two stamp sets to show you. That is something I would like to win. You can check these sets out and see what other one she has by just stopping at Donna's Den of Crafts.

As you can see I did several layers of regular card stock black and white. I cut then down about 1/4 inch down each time. The set of stamps I used is from The Angel Company. The ink I used was VersaFine Onyx black. I added a black ribbon with a white line, I thought it symbol a road across the front and put 2 white metal dots on each side. I hope you enjoyed my card. It is still HOT here. I do hope everyone had a wonderful week end. I had one of my stamp clubs on Sunday and I hope to share with you some of the wonderful cards we made.

I have for you a "Cutie Pie" and the Chef's Pie". Soon to be released..

Cutie Pie

Is this just not the cutest image? It is one of the NEW ones coming out at Suqigglefly on July 10. The image is called "Tweet Elephant" created by Revi Paat Devi. It is such a delightful image you could use it for any kind children's card. I did paper piecing with it. I love the paper I used. It has round fuzzy circles on it and is shinny. I layered the card stock. Sponged around the edges with Brilliance ink color Coral. The stamps I used are from The Angel Company and I stamped then with the Coral ink as well. I love the wiggly eyes on both the Elephant and the Bird. Ribbon going across with 3 metal dots.Cutie pie front

Here is a closer look so you can read the little saying. I hope you can see the little fuzzy circles.

Now for The Chef's Pie

Chief pie

This is another NEWBIE coming out July 10 at Squigglefly. This image is called "Pie Chef" created by Cheryl Alger. It was so much fun to work with. Her little girls are so wonderful in all the craziness she has then getting into. The paper I used is from DCWV it is the Sweet Stack.Chief pie copic

These are The Copic marker I used to color the image. Used Brilliance ink Lime to color around the inside edge of the image. I used the Spellbinder Frameabilities Scalloped Edge Frame to to cut the image out. Used a corner rounder on all the corner. Added some pearls and some ribbon and made several bows and put then together so they would be a little fuller.Chief pie copic front

Here is the close up of the image so you can see how I colored her. I sure can't wait to see all the rest of the NEW images that are coming out on July 10. So if you want to see then stop on by so you will not miss anything. I can't believe this week is almost over and the week end is right around the corner. It has been real HOT here in Wisconsin. The weather man tells us it is going to cool down some but I do not know if I believe him. I'll be back on here on the week end so try and stay cool. We do have an AC and I hope you do also.

Hugs, Patricia, ♥ ♥
