...its a nice day for a white wedding....

Woo hoo congrats Mel and Mark:) Today i am going to my friend Mel's i know this card doesn't look like a normal wedding card, well Mel isn't normal ;) Mel loves black, purple and skulls so of course i was so excited to make her wedding card:)

My image is from Stamping bella and coloured with copics and spica glitter pens. (and yes Mel has purple hair!!) I then cut it out with a nestie and used my spica glitter pen for a border.

My paper is PTI white, Elegant Eggplant, and the dsp is from my stash. I think the skull paper is SU.

I finished off the card with some elegant eggplant ribbon and of course a skull charm i found at Michaels the other day :) On the inside i used a sentiment from SU full of life.

I will be having fun tonight:)

....ball of confusion...

wow...where have i been eh??? well sometimes life is too busy to craft, and well it seems that is the way its been lately! work, school, nice weather, no mojo....ugh...and i even went shopping last week and bought some cool things i want to try out...but i sat down today and forced myself to make a card. I pulled out a card kit because they are easier for me when i am pressed for time...and i am pressed for time! lol

I coloured my bear with copics and cut him out with an oval nestie.

everything else came in the kit, the paper is My Minds Eye and baja breeze and of course PTI white for the base.

My sentiment is from Four the Holidays by SU:)

...drink and drown your sorrow, sorrow likes to swim...

Can you believe i am playing in a Bellariffic Friday Challenge?? Its been way too long and i really miss my bella stamps!!

I decided to ink up Anise Ketto. I coloured her with copics and some spica glitter pens, then cut her out with a nestie.

My papers are PTI white, pretty in pink, certainly celery and the dsp is from my stash.

I ran the pretty in pink and certainly celery through my swiss dots cuttlebug folder.

I finished off the card with some bella dots and i cut out a butterfly from the paper:)

Hope you got to play along this week too:)

...whats right, whats wrong, what the hell is going on....

OMG i love this card kit by Taylored Expressions! Black is my fave colour! I think i have used this kit more than any other kit i have!!

Since i had a Tilda coloured already in yellow i went with the yellow in the kit. I am not a fan of yellow, but it looks cool with the black and white! I coloured Tilda with copics and cut her out.

All my papers are from Taylor's kit. So is the ribbon, flowers and buttons. The only thing from my stash is the pearls:) Oh the sentiment is from teeny tiny wishes by SU.

Hope you are having a great day:)

...most of us all are just living a lie...

Last day of vacation:( boo hoo I am doing this post way early i will fill ya in later on how my vacation was ;)

Today on the Corrosive Challenge Blog its a sketch:) I love sketches and i love making them! This was another easy one. I decided to do another Christmas card this week because i had some left overs from a card kit:)

I coloured my snowman with copics and cut him out with nesties. I don't know which company makes him but i think its SU.

All the paper came from the card it:) I punched out the snowflakes with paper from the kit as well. The bling is from my stash.

Well Happy Mother's Day to all you mom's out there. I miss my mom alot so give yours an extra hug for me:)

...they say its your birthday...

Some of my friends are doing a blog hop for me! HOW SWEET!!! If you wanna see their amazing cards start at Karen's blog!! Thanks already made my bday the bestest!! :)

Since i have a post tomorrow for the Corrosive Challenge blog i thought i would do my Mother's Day post today:)

Everyday i miss my be sure you give yours a big hug for me!! My mom was an amazing woman, she was one of the strongest woman i knew!

The one thing that bothers me the most about people is the way they treat their mothers. I admit...when i was a teenager i wasn't the nicest to my mom, but i quickly learned that life was too short and to always respect the people you love because one day they may not be here anymore.

So...Happy Birthday to me (i was born on Mother's Day, did ya know that??) and Happy Mother's Day to all the wonderful mom's out there!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The drum stamp came with a set from Inkadinkado. I am so glad i bought this set, i use it a lot! I embossed the drums with silver embossing powder on su basic black paper. I then layered it on a piece of basic grey cut out with another nestie.

I finished off the card with some black pearls i had in my stash and the skull bead i had in my stash too. Its on SU black ribbon.

For my card i had this Tilda coloured for a while and knew i had some SU dsp that matched her. I coloured her with copics and cut her out, then sat her on some nesties.

My paper is PTI white, old olive, cottage walls dsp and pale plum.

My ribbon is SU old olive, buttons are from PTI and some prima flowers and bling from my stash.

...stillborn i have become...

Its so strange not to have any DT commitments, i have no idea what stamps to use anymore! lol Today was easy though because i already has this bear coloured:)

I coloured my bear from Taylored Expression with copics and cut him out with a nestie:)

All my paper came from one of Taylor's kits...but not sure which one! lol

I used my SU eyelet border punch for the side and the ribbon came from the kit:) A pretty simple card, but i like it:)

Its day one of my vacation...not much planned yet for the week, but i am sure that will change:)

...i want to get out....

Happy Sunday everyone! Today is my last day of work and then i am on vacation! woo hoo! I can't wait to get caught up on my crafting!

For today's challenge on the Corrosive Challenge blog the theme is birthdays! Why you ask? Because my birthday is coming up:) lol

For my card today i was asked to make a birthday card for a fellow metal head, of course i said yes, these are my fave cards to make:) Shane's fave band is Helloween so i did some searching online for Helloween pictures. Funny story...i found this pumpkin and printed it out...but...i am running very low on ink. So this poor pumpkin came out pink!! Yikes not very metal! So i got out my trusty copics and did some colouring! :) I think it turned out awesome! I like when screw ups turn out awesome! lol (am i babbling...sorry!)

Anyway...I need to give some credit...i was inspired by THIS card but i didn't have all the same supplies so i had to improvise. I used my circle nesties because i wanted it too look like a moon...but it really doesn't! Looks more like a sun. I sponged it with summer sun, pumpkin pie and some real red.

My sentiment is from The Little Paper Shop it came in a set with a skull, guitar, etc. I love the lettering, its so metal ;)

My paper is Basic Black, Pumpkin Pie, and SU dsp (i think its 5th ave or something, there are flowers on the other side).

I used an Ek Success punch and some SU ric rac. I also found this cool spider web charm with a spider on it. I really need more charms, i love them!!

Well that is it for me! Be sure to check out the Corrosive Challenge Blog for a new prize, a winner from last month and of course the amazing DT cards!! :)

...the only way to exit is piece by piece...

Its Saturday and i am off! woo hoo!! :)

I never make CAS cards so i wanted to give it a try. I had this cute huggabug coloured for a while now. I coloured the image with copics and cut it out with a nestie. I used a spica glitter pen for the wings and bling for the antennas.

My paper is PTI white, tempting turquoise and pink flamingo dsp by SU.

The ribbon is from SU its satin white. As always i used my Teeny Tiny Wishes SU set for the sentiment.

Hope you have a super day! I finally have beaten this awful cold i had all week so i can enjoy my day off!! :)
