Niagara IMX-Webster

So, this is what kept me busy this weekend. As long as I did this correctly you can watch my DD take 24 seconds off her previous time doing the 100 Fly. Ok, so I missed her start but at least the video won't get you too sick. Lane 7-heat winner. Way to go Kim!!!(Maybe you couldn't be there Mom but at least you can watch her once in a while if I figure this out!!)

One more Make it Monday #148: Generation Stamping with Line Images and Multiple Colors

So, Dawn showed us how to get a neat image by stamping your image over and over and use a few different colors. I love the way it works and so much fun to experiment. You can find the challenge
here. I still need a few Valentines so I made another with a Penny Black stamp set called Loads of Love

Everyone have a great night.

 Any questions about supplies or any comments, I love to hear them!


Make it Monday #148: Generation Stamping with Line Images and Multiple Colors

So, here is my take two for the Make it Monday challenge that Dawn showed us how to use line images and get some neat effects. I used Limitless Labels to cover up some nuggets to give away for a small treat. It was fun playing with different colors and different stamps!

Make it Monday #148: Generation Stamping with Line Images and Multiple Colors

  I've been thinking about this challenge all week long and I have not had time to sit down and play until tonight. I decided to pull out Sweet Love because I knew I wanted to use the hearts. I must have stamped at least 15 different hearts. I don't know the exact colors I used on each heart because I did so many variations. I can tell you that I used Sweet Blush, Rasp. Fizz, Berry Sorbet, Melon Berry, Hibiscus Burst, Autumn Rose, Scarlet Jewel, Spring Rain, Blueberry Sky and Winter Wisteria inks.
This was a fun challenge and you can find it here.  

Thanks for stopping!

Blizzard of 2014

 This is out our front window. The houses look like they are frosted with icing. A winter candy land here in Buffalo today. So blessed we have a warm house and no place to be, thank goodness.
 One of the few vehicles out and about today- stay home if you can and stay safe!!
Our front storm door, all frosted up.  Sabres game cancelled tonight. :(  I guess I will have to work on some more cards!!
