Just a little update...

Good morning! I haven't gotten long but I thought I would take a minute and let you know why I haven't been posting anything lately :( After my blog hop post with Peachy Keen my computer crashed BOO!!! Anyhoo, I got it fixed and everything is (knock on wood) for the moment running smooth again. After my computer crisis (which is nothing compared to my next one) our grandson Jayden (our 16 month old) has gotten sick :( :( They finally admitted him into the hospital yesterday. Please keep my little buddy in your prayers his Mimi sure hates seeing him this sick! I've been taking care of Karsyn (our two month old grandson) and he's a really good baby but it's been a longggg time since I've watched a baby day and night hee hee and this is one TIRED grandma hahaha So, I thought I would just let you know I'm taking a little break to take care of my loved ones and praying Jayden will be back home with us soon. Hugs, Leanne

P.S. Sorry this is short but Karsyn's taking a nap and it's lunch time for me!! :)

Peachy Keen Spring Fling Blog Hop!


Hello! Welcome to our Spring Fling blog hop! You should be arriving here from Lisa's blog. If you would like to start at the beginning of the hop head over to the Peachy Keen Blog, that's where the fun begins hee hee! 

For my card today, I've used a SVG file from My Scrap Chick for the background. The little boy is from July 2012 Stamp Kit along with the little flowers and the sentiment. If you would like to learn more on how to join the stamp club click HERE! For my little boys face, I used PK-182 Sweet and Silly Face Assortment. Every little boy needs a pet and I thought this lazy hound would make him the perfect friend! He is from SY-910 Hillbilly Hollar Dog. The grass is a Fiskars punch. I didn't take a picture of the inside of my card but I added the sentiment Grrrrr-UMPY! 

 

I'm sorry I've got to make this post short :( I'm having MAJOR computer problems and I keep getting booted out or my computer freezes and I have to reboot! It looks like I'll be calling my computer guy soon and sending it to the computer hospital :(  Thanks for looking and I hope you have a AWESOME day! Hugs, Leanne

Next stop is DoBea!

MCT Sneak Peek Day Two!!


Good morning and welcome back to day two of MCT's April release sneak peeks! Wasn't yesterday's peeks AWESOME?!! Well get ready today we are showcasing another adorable set called "I'm Here for you Rain or Shine" and that's not all!! Emma is also releasing several dies that coordinate along with this set! These dies are sooo fun and super duper cute! There are three, "Stitched Umbrella die", "Stitched Boots die", and "Stitched Daisy die".

I have two cards I want to share with you today using the stamp set and two of the dies. The first card I've used the Stitched Boots die. I created a little scene using several of the stamps within this set. I started by stamping my puddle and then I added the splash (behind the boots) and last the rain drops. I stamped it using CTMH ink in the color Sky. I added Liquid Glass (love this stuff hee hee) The clouds are from the Fly Away With Me die set. I've inked the bottom of the clouds with the Sky ink too. I used CTMH's Stitched Together for the boarder. 



For this card, I've used the "Stitched Daisy die"! Aren't those daises purty!! I'm a sucker for daises so as soon as I seen this I squealed!! I've used a embossing folder by The Paper Studio. The sentiment was stamped using CTMH ink in the color Lagoon and I've shaded the white daises using Buttercup


Over look my card in the background! I was a little on the lazy side and didn't want to move it hee hee!


Thanks for looking and have a GREAT day!! Hugs, Leanne

Goooood morning peeps!! Welcome to day one of MCT's April release sneak peeks!! Get ready for this week to BLOW your socks off! It's a big one and BEYOND AWESOME!!

Today we are showing sneaks of a new set called, You're Brilliant! I purchased a membership to the online Silhouette Store and keep finding the cutest SVG files! The branch is by Lori Whitlock. It also came with a little birdie in the file, but for this project I just needed the branch :) The little monkey is by Rivka Wilkins. I made a boo boo when I was shading his face and got ink on the right side of his face above his cheek :( Just pretend that's suppose to be there hee hee (things like that drive me CRAZY!!) The clouds are from the Fly Away With Me Die set. This set has the CUTEST sentiments! I've actually used three of them "I have a Bright idea!", "let's", and "hang out!" Sooooo cute!  


I only had a chance to get one project done with this set :( I can't wait to play more with it, it's absolutely "Brilliant"!!! (Okay, forgive me for the corny joke but trust me when I say you are going to LOVE it!) Thanks for stopping by today! I'll be back with more sneaks tomorrow! Hugs, Leanne

Peachy Keen Card Challenge - Siblings


Hello! Here's my card for the Peachy Keen card challenge! The theme this time is siblings. I have one of those hee hee! Not sure if I've ever mentioned my brother before but yup, I have one and love him to pieces! 

For my card, I've used the cartridge Car Decals. I think this is the first time I've used this cartridge (or at least I don't remember using it before) I need to make me a stick family for my car (hee hee it would take up the whole rear windshield!) I've used one of Peachy Keens newer face sets PK-182 Sweet and Silly Face Assortment and heat embossed it. The sentiment is from MCT Floral Sentiments (heat embossed it too) The stitched border is by CTMH Stitched Together and it's heat embossed also.

I'm going to make this short so I can get this linked up over at the Peachy Keen Blog and start watching the weather we are under tornado watches EEK!! Thanks for looking! Hugs, Leanne

*Update* bahahaha I'm such a dork! I missed the challenge it's already closed!! Oh well, I still had fun making my card! :)

Hello peeps! I hope that you all are having a awesome week! I have a friend that lost a family member so I wanted to let him know I was thinking of him during this difficult time. I used another one of Miss Kate Cuttables files called daisies. I wanted the daisies to really pop out so I used some dark chocolate pattern paper from the EP This & That paper pad. I used a sentiment from MCT Floral Sentiments and heat embossed it. The butterfly is from the MCT Chunky Jar Die Accessories

You Blow Me Away!


Hello peeps! Wow, what a day it's been! I think I know what started it all...I woke up this morning and was out of Diet Mt. Dew!! Let's just say that didn't start my morning off with a bang! So you see, I think I was cursed from the get go hee hee! I'm sure I messed up a few other people's day at the grocery store bright and early this morning heading in there looking the way I looked but oh well, I was in crisis mode! Next, I ALWAYS buy my drinks in a can and ALWAYS buy them when they are on sale. Guess what?! No sale!! I had to pay full price (but at this point I didn't care I want need my Dt. Mt. Dew). I got home popped one open and thought I was good to go till about a hour later when I stepped out side and just happened to notice pools of water in our yard :( Yup, we had a pipe to bust! I won't bore you with all the details from there but lets just say I got to play in the mud today :) 

Here's a card I made the other day and just now getting to share with you. I used the stamp set, Under The Sea by CTMH. This is such a cute set! I just love this fish! I stamped it using our Archival Black ink and then colored it in with my copic markers. The little waves is also included in this set and I stamped it using Crystal Blue ink. I also used a sponge dauber to color it in. Underneath the waves, I decided to add some sand. I did this by taking a sponge dauber and two more inks (Desert Sand & Cashmere). I sponged the lighter one first and then sponged the darker one next. I added some stickles to the fish, waves, and sand. I also added a googly eye and liquid glass to the bubbles just for fun!


For the border stitches, I used another stamp set called Stitched Together by CTMH. I stamped it using the Sunset ink pad. Well, I guess that's it for me today! I'm getting ready to head to bed early tonight! I've got a dentist appointment tomorrow and need my rest hee hee! He about kills me everytime I go!! I dread it really bad so wish me luck! Hugs, Leanne

Peachy Keen April Release Challenge #1


Good morning (or maybe I should say afternoon hee hee) I hope everyone's Monday has gotten off on a good start! I've got a gazillion things I need to be doing in the house today but I decided it would be so much more fun to craft! 

I made this card for the Peachy Keen April release challenge. This is for Challenge #1, which is to create anything with a rainy day theme.  The little birdie, umbrella, cloud, & puddle are a svg file that I found on the Silhouette Store. I used PK-755 Critter faces for her eyes and beak. The sentiment is from PK-150 Snow Sweet Home. I also made my own background stamp using PK-119 Lattice Background. I used several of my CTMH ink to ink the edges, stamp the sentiment, & the background. I'll give you a list of those at the bottom of my post :) 

I wanted to do a shape card but after I started trying to get a picture of it I could have smacked myself upside the head!! Anyhoo, the shape is also from the Silhouette store! I tried taking my card outside to photograph but it's way to windy (had to chase it down a few times hee hee) I did manage to get a decent one but not one from the side like I normally do :( The inside is blank so you didn't miss anything hee hee.

Well, I'm off to see if I can squeeze another card out before supper! Thanks for looking!
Hugs, Leanne

Here is a list of the CTMH ink I used in my project...

Crystal Blue (around the edges of the puddle)
Sky Blue (around the cloud)
Blush (for the birdie)
Pear (for the umbrella & sentiment)
Buttercup (for the lattice background)

You can purchase any of these colors by clicking HERE!

Hello Tweety!


Hello peeps! I hope you are having a wonderful day/weekend! I'm back with another card to share with you! For this card, I've used two CTMH stamp sets Hello Tweety and In the Background. I started out by stamping the Song Birds in CTMH ink, Buttercup. I then stamped it again and cut it out to use as a mask. I placed the mask over the stamped image and then stamped the bird cage in Desert Sand.  Next, I stamped my sentiment using CTMH ink, BamBoo. I felt like it still needed a little something so I used the butterfly vine and stamped once on a scrap piece of paper and then onto my project (without reinking) I think you call this generation stamping. I used Creme Brulee for the ink.


For the background, I used the stamp set, In the Background. This set includes three different background stamps. I chose the floral one and stamped it using Creme Brulee. I've gave up and started taking my photos outside but even outside I still get shadows arrr!! Bare with me, one of these days I'll get it right hee hee! Thanks for looking! Hugs, Leanne
