Fight Like A Girl

I am SO HONORED to have been asked to make cards for a local Childhood Cancer organization called Find A Cure. And very lucky to be able to work with such a talented photographer. AND I get to look at these gorgeous little faces while I am playing with paper and ink ;0)
Look at this little beauty. Isn't she a doll?

Here she is again. Such a sweety!!!

And look at this handsome little guy.

Thanks Flourishes!

In additon to this new project I am SUPER EXCITED about another new project I am teaming up on. I can't give any details right now. But it is going to be GREAT!!!! Keep watchin.....

Sharing some Canvas!

I guess I never added this to the blog. This one is a bit old though. I call it Life on the Farm. It's my favorite!! Stamps on here are Oxford Impressions.
Heres a new one. No stamps, just old family photos. I call this one Minas Pearls.

Another new one. This one is called Minas Secrets.

So nice not to have to answer to SU!!

Its a good thing I am not an SU demo. I would hate to have to tell them to BUZZ OFF cause they are so SELFISH!!! I feel sorry for them that they are now going to lose so many talented demos, but they did it to themselves. They should go back to Kindergarden and learn how to share!!

Well anyway...... Here is the first card I made with my Fire Cracker Designs by Pamela Elephant set. Thanks for getting this set made Pam!!! I used the Grass CB folder for the background panel. This lovely card went off in the mail on a long journey to Maine;0)
Yay Hooray the first day of school TODAY!! Had to pull out my Oxford Impressions school set, and Dylan spied this school bus I had forgotten about from All Night Media. How fun!!

Another from Oxford Impressions!! Now that the kids are back in school I can spend a lot more time in the studio. YAY for ME!! Dylan starts in 2 weeks, until then it is me and my little man. Today we have a movie date, time to go!!
Well would you look at that!! Three COUNT EM 3 stamp companies in one post. How lovely to be me!!!!

So you want to be on a DT?

When I left FCD last fall I had planned to reapply this year, after all the current DT owes me one right. LOL!!! Well I am sure you have heard the old saying "if you want to hear God laugh, tell him what you have planned" So anyway, life doesn't always go as planned, and I just can't squeeze in the time to apply (unless Pam pushes it back a month, yeah right)
So for those of you who would like to apply here is the info and a few tips.

Good Luck!!!

Finally some play time

Have you seen this issue? Did you know I have 3 cards in here? You should really check it out!
This is the set Suzanne sent me today as a reward for being published with her stamps. I have some fun stuff planned for these. But the glue is still drying right now. SO keep scrolling to see what I did today.

This ATC I actually made a few months ago, but don't think I ever shared it. The theme for this was favorite quotes, I chose one by Warren Harding which really seemed to fit America today.

Now I am actually ahead of the game since I got these done for July. They will go out in the mail with the ATCs below which were due for May and June. So sorry ladies! Julys theme is Metallics.

This is Junes ATC. The theme is Cuttlebug, or Grungeboard. I used the CB.

And Mays theme was Foreign Lands. Had these started several weeks ago, but never got them done until today, along with all the others. When I got all these done I was just getting going on my walking stick when Lyle suddenly realized he was suppose to go to work 4 hours early. He is going to be so tuckered when he gets home in the morning.

Far behind, and no art to share

There has just been too too much going on around here to get any art done lately. But I do want to share this great site for raised herb/vegetable gardens. I need to get one of these. Check them out

Treasure Hunting at the Tracks

I just had to share this art doll made by Taylor, my 9 year old. Oh Em Geee!!!! (thats how she talks LOL)
We love to go for "treasure hunts" and we go down by the railroad tracks quite a bit. So when we had some unseasonably warm weather about 10 days ago we took my neice and nephew for their very first treasure hunt. We will need to go on a few more before they love them as much as Taylor and I do. But they (all of us) found some great stuff.
Yesterday was the first day of Spring Break and Taylor decided to pull out her bag of treasures and make something. She found an empty nail polish bottle in her room and put this doll together. Everything except the bottle is what she found at the tracks. The only thing I did for her was to color the bottle with Alcohol Inks (I am not willing to give her free reign with my precious inks yet) I think she did such a fabulous job!!
Those are some pretty awesome knee caps. hehehe

I don't know why she gave him a sad mouth, but he looks pretty cool. He even has a cool little hat.
