I’ve been busy

Did you think I got buried in snow during the “Blizzard of 2010?”

I wish I would have got some pictures.

It’s the first time I remember the snow being up to my waist!

But I didn’t venture outside all that much.

I spent most of the time in my scrapbook room.  Yay!

Let’s start with this set.

I have a huge pack of DCWV Rock-N-Roll themed paper that I have no idea why I purchased.

Probably on clearance.

Anyway, I made all three of these cards out of a single sheet of paper.

Added some stamps with white ink, a little bling and some white gel pen stitching and voila!

I have no idea what I’ll do with these but I did use up some paper.

Here’s another one I made.

You can’t really see it in the picture, but I used Unity’s Distressed Music background stamp on the kraft paper.

It looks so cool.

Lastly, I have a man card to share!

I hate making cards for men.

I think it’s because I like to add all kinds of frilly, girlie things to my cards.

It’s too hard to keep it clean and simple.  LOL!

Oh my, oh my!

It snowed here last night!

So much!

I don’t even know how much.

I just know that when I was outside at 5:00 this morning the snow was drifted up to my waist.

Crazy!

Oh!  Let me show you the view from my scrapbook room.  Which is upstairs, overlooking the porch roof.

THAT is the snow on our porch roof!

Yikes!

So what was I doing in my craft room?

Oh yeah, I was making this card.

This card was inspired by a card I saw on Betsey Veldman’s blog.

As soon as I saw it, I had an idea using that Lizzie Anne banner stamp.

See all those little flowers I put in the trees?  They were the scraps from punching the border!

So I got home from church last night all ready to watch American Idol.

But J was playing XBOX..and I was recording it anyway.

So I made a card!

I love cards with ruffles, but I’ve never tried it before.

There was probably an easier way to do it, but it worked.

Not sure I like the ribbon around the heart though.

I made 3 cards today!

I don’t like this one.  Something about it, it’s just not my style.

I like this one a little better.

Maybe because it is blue.

I like blue.

I have the image on the next card stamped for months.

Just couldn’t figure out what to do with it.

I put Glossy Accents on the vases.  Don’t they look cool.

Wow, more cards today!

I have some more cards to show you today.

I made 2 this afternoon, the other is from right after Christmas.

But I never showed it to you before.

Here is the “old” new one.  This is the first sympathy card I have ever made.

The next 2 I used my newest Lizzie Anne Designs monthly mix stamps on.

I had the idea for this card in my head, but it did not turn out quite the way I was picturing it.

Here’s another card with the love birds.

I wish you could see the shimmer on that cloud paper.  Here’s a close-up.

Hope you enjoyed!

Last Christmas card for this year.

I have been watching this challenge blog (Sketchy Thursdays) through my blog reader for a couple weeks now and when I saw they were giving away Copic markers this week I thought I’d give it a try.  I already have all my Christmas cards done, but I made another one especially for this (and the chance to use some more of the new Christmas paper I got 😉 ).
