I made this mini book for my daughter a few weeks ago at a scrapbook weekend.  This is her absolute best friend.

Boots was having a blast trying to catch a gopher that had gone down this dirt pile we had at the back of our house.  It got really dusty.  She made a dirt storm!  She was covered in dirt.  We howled when she stuck her head way down the hole!  It was so darn funny!

I didn't think to write down all of the carts.  I may have missed a few, but I used a few more in my quest!  The target was not on a cart that I could find, so I created one.

I got to use my new toy my husband got me:  a Cinch! Such a great toy!

Girlie Golf Cart Card

Made this card on the fly for an auntie's surprise birthday party.  Suprise!  It's tonight!  Yikes! I found out right before I left for work this morning!   Whoa, not much notice.  I think it turned out pretty good though.  She loves to golf and her golf stuff is pink.  Everyday Paper Dolls is such a "go to" cart when you are looking for all kinds of things.  I knew it would have what I needed!  It sure made it easy to do a card when everything you need is there!

Mickey Fon got used so that's another one down!  (Okay, a little cheap with only using a 1!  lol!)

Beep Boop Robots!

 I made these for my darling grandson.  He's all boy!  I adore his cute little face!

Obviously, I used Robotz for these!  The gears came from Indie Art though!  Imagine that!  Robotz doesn't really have gears on it!

I plan on filling the body with candies for him to eat.  I'm sure the large robot will be toast before the day is done, but that's okay!

I have now used 45 of my 104 carts!  I didn't realize I had crossed the 100 threshold! I thought I was about 1/2 done my journey to use all of my carts!  45 since Sept is pretty good though!  I'm pretty pleased!  I still haven't managed to pull SYI out!  Ugh he's so tough for me to use!  Why is that?  He was a must have cart!

Fun Work Binder

I made this cover for my work binder awhile ago.  Our office was purging a bunch of old binders so I snatched this up.  I like to be organized so I thought a binder would be perfect.  BUT!!! Who wants a boring binder?  Work is tedious enough without any kind of fun!  I think it turned out pretty good.  The clients and others I work with find it fun as well.  The lizard is from BWBB, the sun from EDPD and the font is from PSB.  I mod podged the whole thing to help it last longer.

Calla Lily

It is super foggy outside today.  The only thing missing is a fog horn!

I made this card for the son of a beautiful lady I know that just passed.  I will miss her, she was such a sweet, sweet soul!

This is my first attempt at a rendition of a Calla Lily.  I used leaves from the Just Because cartridge to make the flower. I took a toothpick, dipped in glue and added flower soft to make the stamen.

I took the tag heart from TBBM for the leaves.  The Labels came from Winter Frolic.  The flower/label was spritzed with Perfect pearls.

The stamps are from a clear stamp set.  Okay, here is my confession.  I took all of my stamps and dismounted them if mounted, unpackaged them if packaged and put them all in binders.  Super easy to see things now and they take up way less space!  The uh-oh! is that I did not bother to put the name of the company on them, so it makes it hard to know which ones are which!  EEK!  So, if I don't write the name, it's just because I honestly don't know who made them!  lol!

Woohoo!  Three more carts used in my quest!

Spring Banner

Hello there!

I made this Spring Banner because, as many of you may know, I am SICK OF WINTER!!!  I needed a little Spring to make me feel less blue.  This is a fun addition to the house.  My darling husband knows I'm feeling "blach" because of the long Winter season and purchased me some real tulips to brighten up my kitchen.  Wasn't that sweet?!  I sure thought so!

I found this to be a lot harder than it should have been.  Ever have one of those ideas that just click, only to find out they are a pain in the butt to do?  Yep, this little pretty was it!  I really like the final result though, so all in all, I guess it was worth the work.

I used FIVE carts I have not used in awhile!  That is awesome on my quest to use all of my carts.

Hope you like it.

Family Photo

I have not been able to post in awhile due to a missing camera!  Sheesh!!

This is a canvas photo matting I did for my eldest daughter and her family.  I think they are a handsome family!  All of the papers came from DCWV Street Lace and Alphabet stacks.  The roses are cut using French Manor.  The same type of flower can be cut from many other carts.  I spritzed the roses with Cherry Blossom Walnut ink and then Perfect Pearls/H20 I made.   They have a lovely shimmer to them.  I also did the V with the CB ink and spritzed some here and there on the flower paper to pull the pink over to the left side of the page.  The leaves are cut from Gypsy Wanderings.  Some bling, a few extra embellishments and voila!
