Photo Stamp

This  picture on the cardstock is from a rubber stamp i made with my TCSTAMPMAKER.  Took several tries cause i didn't have it in the negative the first time.  As you can see i still need practice but i am getting there.  But I can tell its my grandson who turned 2 years old on the 27.


I just reached 10,000 on my blog counter.

Set That I made for myself

This is the necklace and earrings I made for my self  and I got this old floppy pink hat they will go with perfectly.  Went back to the eye doctor and told her I had wore my new glasses for a month now
and i still wasn't seeing great and couldn't read at all unless is squinted and got about 8 inches to item.  Then not at all if it was to tiny of a writing so they order me some new ones   got my fingers crossed that they work this time.   I told her if i had to take a driving eye test that day i would fail.    Can't wait to get the new ones.   Back to my necklace  sorry i was rambling.  One of the local stores is gonna save me bottle cap tops.   Woohooo.

House Mouse Challenge 100 winnings

Awhile back I entered the 100th House Mouse Challenge.  I guess I was the grand prize winner cause by looking at what i got it seemed like the biggest prize and was it.  I did some checking and i won 10 packages of House Mouse Designs  Decoupage sheets.  Wow in these 10 packs there is enough stuff to fix 200 cards in 3-D.  I made one card already  These packages are 14.99 Us Dollars each.   But my prize came from the UK. 

From Joanna   Here are a few pictures and One card that I made.

Did this one in a rush.  Challenge closes at Midnight tonite.  I used craft cardstock.  Suppose
to use a retired cartridge.   I use 2.  The apple came from Cricut Sampler.  The a came from
gypsy font. The card came from New Arrival.   The Equal sign i improvised.  Saved 2 of the
cut outs from the front of the card to form the = mark.  The ribbon is from Really Reasonable
Ribbon.  The inside i lined with the same color as the apple and in the center put white for  wr-
itting on.  The green and red card stock came from  The paper Studio Vintage Christmas.  I used
White gelly roll pen from PKS.  The sentiment card i used EK Success.  The sentiment is one I wrote
on my computer and printed out and i use Color Box black ink for around the edges.  I added a stamp to
the apple so that I could enter this card also in the CCR challenge.  Something with a stamp and the
color RED.   The stamp is from MyCreativeTime  Stamp Set  MY TEACHER ROCKS.  This is the Back to School Challenge over at CCR .

Been Busy

Sorry I haven't posted lately but it took about a week to get my new glasses in and
i am having a little trouble getting used to them they are stronger and that means my
bifocals are stronger and thats the part i am having problems with.  I can't focus as
well as before.   They told me to wear them for a bit and see if i adjust to them but
am still having problems reading .   Grrrr well hopefully i can get them changed.
But i have been busy here is a few things that i have been working on.  Going to
my family reunion at the end of this month we are headed to Arkansas to spend a
week with my family and on the way back home stop off at the reunion.  Some of the
above items i am making for the raffle drawings.   Some are gifts.  Anyways just thought
I would post and let you know I am still around.
