I am now an Angel!!!!

LOL no I am not bragging... I signed up with The Angel Company... I am officially a demonstrator for them.  I am really excited.  I signed up mostly to be a Hobby Demo (lol basically I am my own best customer) but hey if other orders come my way I won't turn them down lol.  I love their stamps.  I got a whole bunch with my starter kit and I placed my first order and have a bunch more coming.  I will need to start making more cards to put on my blog now I suppose lol.   Right now they have a fabulous deal going on.  Any T coded stamp set is 50% off.  LOL I took advantage of that.  I also got an additional 50.00 worth of stamp sets in addition to my starter kit.  It was like Christmas all over again. 

Well I have to get back to the books again.... School is back in.

OMG I am a winner...

Kathy over at Bits and Pieces blog pulled my name for a drawing for some Blog Candy.  I can not believe this.  I never win anything.  I am so excited.  Below is a picture of the blog candy that she gave away.  She is soooo generous.  I just can't believe I won it.  Here is Kathy's blog for all you stampers out there, kathatstamps.  I hope all of you are having a wonderful new year.  School starts again on Tuesday so it will be back to the grind for me.  Ugggg I just keep reminding myself that there is a light at the end of the tunnel.

Happy Birthday Card...

I joined a swap on Splitcoast Stampers and it was for birthday cards.  I made this one from a sketch provided on sheetload of cards blog.  I used Kraft paper as a base and Black, Pixie Pink, & Pretty in Pink.  I think it turned out pretty good. 


The picture is a bit askew... The card isn't crooked.  I would do things a bit differently if I was making the card again.  I would put ribbon on the bottom of the striped piece before I mounted it down lol.   But for my first attempt it isn't too bad.

My very first Biscornu finish!!!!

Well I finally did it.  I ventured into the world of Biscornu's.  I saw a pattern on the online needlwork show that I had to have.  My friend Margot loves pigs so when I saw the design "Holy Mud" by Barbara Ana I had to get it.  Below are some pics of what it was supposed to look like and my Biscornu.  I dont think its too bad considering its my first attempt.  I would like to thank Mary Katherine from STO for the instructions on how to finish it.  I got them off her blog I believe. 

100_1429 This is what its supposed to look like.

Here is my actual Biscornu.  I thought this design was just too cute to not stitch for my friend.  100_1414

All in all not to shabby for my first attempt.  I didnt use the same fabric colors as the model but I still thought it turned out ok.  Margot loved it and was tickled pink lol excuse the pun. 


Till the next time.
