Blog hop for Michelle Perkett Studios on PCP

I am so excited to be included in Michelle's blog hop. What a great opportunity to join with such great artists.

If you got here from Bev's blog, then you are right on track.

My girl is just lounging around and have a great time. I colored her with my copics, added a flower from PC as well as a few other embellishments from EK Success, Sandy Lion, and designs by reminisce.. The paper is some from my stash (it is still huge but I am using it).

I sure hope you enjoy it.

I also check on what my Hawaiian name is and it is Lalali. What a cool name, I would love to live in Hawaii if it wasn't so dang hot.

Welll now it is time to head off to the next blog which is Ann's

OKR Rubber Stampede blog post

Which means that school staarting is right around the corner, then comes Labor Day, (which is the last BIG holiday of the summer), then comes fall, the winter, and then................well you know what I mean. This year has just flown by for me.

This is Laralee and I decided that I needed to do a card for a friend of mine that is feeling I picked the smiling flowers (17002). This is just such a nice and friendly stamp and needless to say one of my favs.

I colored it with my copics and I put it on a card from Hallmark, oh and of course I had to put some stickles on it.

I hope that this brightens your day and hers.

Take time to stop and smell the flowers because before long they will be gone and snow doesn't smell.

QKR Rubber Stampede's "FROSTY IN JULY"

Welcome to our BLOG HOP. Hope that you all enjoy this little bit of "mental cooler" with our take on Christmas in July.

What a great way to "Mentally" cool off.

If arrived here from the QKR site you are right on track. However if you came here first please go to QKR Stampede Blog - and start from the beginning. Wow Maribeth has some absolutely GREAT stamps for Christmas and boy have I had a blast this month.

My little Christ child in the manger is absolutely one of my favs. I colored all of my images with my copics and put just a little bling on them with stickles.....after all what is Christmas and the holidays without BLING?????? I also made this card as a tri-fold card and put the "Jesus is the reason for the season" on the inside. This is also a great stamp from QKR.

Santa's elf looking for your name is also one of my favs.....wait a minute, they are all my favs and I just LOVE each and every one of them.

Santa getting Elvis elves instead of elves is another that I have just had a ball with......and then my Christmas moose is the last one that I am showing right now.

Keep coming back (or look back on my older posts) for other things that I have done. I will be posting Christmas cards for the rest of the month.

Now you are going to head over to Ceal's blog to see what a great job she has done.

I am so honored to be serving on this great Design Team with such creative and kind women........and I hope to be able to work with all of them more.

Be sure to leave comments (both good and bad....I am always looking for ideas) for a chance at the great gift certificate that Maribeth is offering.

I am posting the blog order below and if by some chance you get lost, just go back to the main blog and go to the next person.

Thanks for stopping by and have a "COOL" time hopping (or in this case "SLIDING" along.

he power just came back up and so here is my part of the blog hop.

I am so excited about this blog hop...............yet I am soooooo sad. This is the final blog hop for this DT.

I have had such a good time working with all of the ladies and I am going to be real sad to not be working with all of them.

But on to all of the excitement. We are having a blog hop and letting everyone know that Mia is having a DT call of cool is that?

If you got here from Lawren's blog then you are right on track......if you came to my blog first, then you really need to go to Fink's blog and start from the begining so that you don't miss even 1 of the great things that the DT has done.

Be sure to leave a comment on each of our blogs to have a great chance at the gift certificate that is being offered. It is so great.

OK OK on to my project. Don't you just love this great little guys who is snowboarding........All I could think of was my grandson seeing it and saying COWABUNGA!!!!!!!!!!!!! What a great Christmas card that it made. I used some paper that I have had for ages for the base of the card (I am trying to go green for my CHristmas cards this year and not buy anything). I printed him off on Georgia Pacific white cardstock and then colored him with my copics.

This image is available for sale on the AiFactory website as wll as all of the others that you have seen and will see all through the blog hop.

Make sure that you check out what Mia wants for the new DT members and give it a shot.......she is sooooo generous with images and it is a blast.

2 more cards

Here are 2 more cards that I have done.

The flower one is for AiFactory Team A. The challenge is for FLOWERS and boy do I LOVE this one. I used PRIMA flowers and then I colored a GREAT set that AiFactory has right now. It comes with 2 sayings (which are devine) and 2 sets of flowers. The stickles were used just to give a little bit of glam to them.

The other card is for Stamp n Doodle.....this month is a Safari for the Stamp club, and this weeks challenge over on SNR is to distress something (and dang it they didn't mean to distress me). Jump over to both AiFactory and while you are there look up Stamp n Doodle.

Off to the Social Security court for me today. Wish me luck.

I have been soooooo busy crafting

I have done 6 cards this weekend. I am so proud of myself.

QKR Rubber Stampede is doing the Christmas in July theme this month and so I decided that I was going to do my best to get my Christmas cards done early this year so that they might even get sent that would be a big change for me.

I am only going to show you 3 of them so that you will come back the 23rd for the blog hop and see what else I have created.

My next project is going to be a wedding card for my son and future DIL, who are getting married in my back yard on the 24th of this month.....busy, busy, busy.

Hope you enjoy the cards. I am sooo excited about them.

AiFactory challenge "Green with Envy"

Time has just flown by. It is time for another AiFactory challenge and this one is being GREEN.

I was trying to figure out what I wanted to do and it has been real HOT here (and everywhere else) so Dh decided we needed to have a pool party this weekend and I just ran out of compressed air and decided it would be cute to "blow the heat away". I know it was corny but I did think out of the box. Hope you enjoy it.

The paper is from PC (yrs ago), the adorable images are from AiF "pool party" and of course I colored them with COPICS.

WOW is it REALLY JULY??????

Where has the time gone?

Well here in WA it has gone to the wayside.

We got moved into the other house and boy what a chore that has been. We have painted, and painted and painted.......replaced carpets and CLEANED!!!!!!!!

Now my craftroom is a good as it is going to get and so I am really ready to get down to business.

You will be seeing TONS of projects that I have done and will be doing. I finished curtains for the house, made baby blankets, and colored. Me and my trusty COPICs have been busy and will be busy for a while.

Be back later with pics.....I am pretty sure I know where the camera is.
