Well here we are at the end of another week and the end of October. In just a few days we will be in the 11th month and thinking of the Holidays. Wow this year has gone WAY to fast.
This is the sketch that we are doing over on Blog n Doodle for this week and I just love this image (that is for sale over on the Stamp n Doodle store).....and this is a saying that I just love. I am really not sure where I got it but I think that it was from TLC. I colored her with my copics and used some stickles to bling her up. I just think that they add so much sparkle, just like fresh fallen snow.....which we have had TONS of up in the mountains this week.
Hope that enjoy the pics and please come and join us for this weeks sketch.
I entered this project in the following challenges:

WOW can you believe that this is the last weekend in October????? Where in the heck has this year gone.
I know that for me, health issues have taken a HUGE bite out of the year, but I am hoping that it is behind me and I can get feeling better.
Well it is time for AiFactory's weekly challenge and of course this week is HALLOWEEN!!!!!!!!
I am not sure where I got this little guy, but he is so cute. I colored him with my copics, used some more of my "stash" paper and got this GREAT saying from the AiF store. You really need to visit it and see all of the great things that are in there. I did a little coloring on the saying and then cut it out from my Making Memories cutters and lined it with some great ribbon/rope that I also had in my stash that just seemed to fit. I was quite pleased about the way that it turned out.
Well off to see Social Security again and to Dr appnts. Hopefully I can get a bunch more done tonight and tomorrow. I know that I will need to do another post tomorrow.
I used this adorable card in the following challenges:

So onto my card. I did a THANKSGIVING card. Yea I know, none of us are ready for Turkey Day yet, but neverless it is coming. I just thought that this turkey was so dang cute, and he looked so lost, that I just could not resist the Eat Beef sign. I colored him with me copics and then cut him out. The paper is some new that was sent to me (NO I am still not buying any new paper until I use up the stash) from Colorbok. I do like it and who am I to turn down FREE paper. The lettering is from my "stash" and I just wanted to do something different.
Now head on over to Margie’s blog and see what great things she has in store for you! http://creativityplace24.blogspot.com/ Thanks for stopping by, and don’t forget to leave a comment because the winner could be you!
I am so sorry for being absent, but we have had all sorts of problems around here.
I have been in the hosopital, but I am fine, then I get home and the internet was off for 3 days, and when I finally got it back, low and behold the power starts going off and on. I would say a good time to be doing crafty things, but instead I have laid down and been a good girl.
Anyway here is my card for Stamp n Doodle this week. Isn't it cute. We needed to do some embossing (the boots) some glitter (the socks) and have a bat. The image is from Stamp n doodle and they saying is just one I have heard (I am sure like everyone of you have heard it also). Go check out the challenge over at Stampo n Doodle.
I used this card in the following challenges:

Wow here we are and it is Monday again and almost the Middle of OCTOBER. Where has the time gone?
Well I broke 3 toes on my foot over the weekend, real nice huh? Dr says I am to stay off of it, yea right, what world does he live in.
Saturday was my Granddtr Madison Laurine's 2nd birthday party. I made her the neatest card.................and forgot to take pics of it, and forgot the camera..... what a dork I am. It was so cute, she was using one of her balloons as an "exercise ball". It is so neat to look at her, she looks so much like her namesake, my Mom.
Yesterday we went grocery shopping for most of the month, my poor car was soooooo loaded down.
OK,OK on to what I have been doing......making cards, what a thought.
The first one is Bugaboo's wonderful Stella, as you well know, I just love Stella and Gus, she is soooooooo much like me.
I colored her with my copics, used up a couple of different papers from my stash, and found this GREAT tree that I used pop-dots to pop it out.
I used this card in the collowing challenges:
http://anythingchallenge.blogspot.com/ Christmas has come early
http://delightfulsketches.blogspot.com/ red,green, and white
http://tellensplace.blogspot.com/ use 2 patterned papers
http://fabnfunkychallenges.blogspot.com/ use a digi
Let's see the next 2 pics are the same card. The front is the butterfly, of course they were done with copics, and boy did I used stickles.....but I am really happy with how it turned out......and I LOVE the saying.
Well that is all for right now. I am hoping to start doing some scrapbook pages here in the next few days. I am really behind because of my obsession with cards.

Go check out the store and see what all we have over there. I just saw the grocery lists and To Do lists and those are "gotta haves" at my house.
Head on over and see what Mia has done: http://www.aivault.com/store/
Well I am off the to ER, we think I broke my foot, I know that I have 4 black toes, and a black foot and for someone who can't feel their feet, I can feel something everytime I take a step.
Oh wait...............I get to let you see one of the new releases. Mine is the little girl with wings on the pumpkin, only my little girl is on an apple (after all I do live in WA and in the area where there are TONS of apples)
She has been colored with my copics and I did use just a few stickles. She comes with her image and the saying and what better saying than to give Thanks for our bountiful harvests that we are having.

Where in the heck has this week gone? I have been so busy trying to take care of things here at the homefront, and doing projects for different things that need to be done that this week has flown by.
Well Thursday's are AiFactory days and today is embossing. I do not have a heat gun or the embossing stuff, so I hand embossed. It is hard to see but the hearts, and the centers of ALL of the flowers have been hand embossed.
I colored it with my copics and then highlighted areas with stickles.
Hope you enjoy it......I know I did have fun doing it.
I have used this card in the following challenges:

Yes, yes, yes I have been holed up in my room and crafting. I have been trying to get things done to open up my little store. Actually it is a space in a store called "THE SMALL MALL" I will be selling clothes, stamps that I don't use, copics that I have double of, crocheted kitchen towels, ceramics that I have done, outdoor lights that I have made, ornaments, etc.
However I have found time to do a bunch of cards......and I am real proud of them.
The first one is Poinsetta girl and I think that she just turned out wonderful. I cannot for the life of me remember where I got her, but as soon as I find out I will be sure to put it on here as this WONDERFUL artist definately deserves credit for her. I colored her with my copics, added a little sparkle with my stickles, and used a couple of different Christmas papers from my stash and I think that she just turned out great.
She has been entered in the following challenges:
The next image is one that I have had for a while and I am pretty sure that she is a Pixie Dust girl. She is also colored with my copics and is entered in the following challenges:
Then I went on a STELLA rampage. I just love her (and BTW I am doing a bunch of her for CHristmas cards right now). She just makes my day. As mosst of you know, Stella, is from Bugaboo Stamps and I just LOVE Jodie. She is a real kick in the pants and she does such a great job on all of her stamps.
She was colored with copics (duh) and I used up a bunch of papers in my stash.
First is Instant witch: Boy I think this is me lately. I entered her in the following challenges:
http://aspoonfullofsugarchallenge.blogspot.com/ spots and stripes
The next one is "If the broom fits"
The next "Stella" is Black Hat Society and I am sure that this one fits me too. I have enter this card in the following challenges:
http://paperromancechallenges.blogspot.com/ black, orange and cream
S2G--orange and purple
The next "Stella" is the wicked witch of the East and the West, wow this one fits me toooooo. WOW I guess most of Stella's fit me to a teeeeeeee.
Last, but not least is "Scarecrow boy". He is a rubber stamp from QKR Stampede and he is just adorable. The saying I have had for a number of years and it does not say who did it. I have entered him into the following challenges:
http://sewmanychallenges.com/ anything goes. BTW they are having a DT call!!!
