NEW stamps!

So, Have you been in the store lately? If not time to make the trip!!! So much new! Here's a taste!
Stop in soon!


Hi everybody!! Miss me?? Smiley from

Sorry I have been gone for awhile but things have been really hectic around here. Hubby has been sick, he was also in a car accident (with my car)...not his fault and he is ok....the other guy, however, has a long road to recovery in front of him. The other guy was on a motorcycle and rear-ended my husband. Not good but he will be ok and that is a good thing.
AND....I have been coloring my fingers to the bone getting samples ready for Mega Meet that is in May in Novi, Michigan!!!!!! That is the fun part of the hectic that has been going on! I did get a quick card made to share with you. You have to excuse the crooked cut....I had to use my old, junky trimmer since my good one is in the trunk of the car and it is 6 a.m. and I didn't feel like going outside to get it. Thought I could make this one do the job....NOT! You pay so much money for these think they would work better than they do!!

OK....enough of my is my card for you to feast your eyes upon!!....

What'cha think????
Turned out better than I thought it would but it is kind of hard to see the background detail so you might have to click on it to see it better.

Here is the list of items I used to make this:
Stamps: Hero Arts-Antique Engravings, Dots & Flowers and La Letter (stamped on the flower) and Fiskars-Make A Wish
Ink: Distress Ink-Vintage Photo
Copics: BG01/05/07 and E59
Misc: scrapper's floss, button, flower, glossy accents, Martha Stewart punch and 1/16" pop dots.

Well, that is it for today...have to get to bed now.

Until later....Sharon

Where in the world is Sharon?

    I hope you all are not asking that question! I guess I am a slave driver!!! Don't worry she will be back soon, she has been helping Scrap Happy prepare for our next consumer show!
    We will be in Novi Michigan at Mega Meet!!! Each booth can only take an approved company, we are lucky this year and get to take some awesome companies including......Cottage Kutz(hi Greg!!) Silhouette of America ( hi kris!!), Pink Paislee, Fiskars, Lilly Bee, QuicKutz and new this year will be our own Scrap Happy label!!! We have some exciting new kits available!!!
  So i guess that means you are stuck with me trying to inspire you to get creative!! Thank heaven I had some inspiration earlier this week!

   Yes, this is me with the ever so talented Tim Holtz!!!  I am not sure if it is more shocking to see a photo of me or a photo with me with Tim!!! I was lucky enough to be invited by a special friend to enjoy an entire day refreshing my creative side!!! YOU all need to do this! Pull out your calendars and make an appointment with yourself to relax, enjoy the moment and get creative! Life is crazy! Take time for you!

Punches, punches, and more punches.....

Ok, so how many border punches do YOU have??

I have a few and I forget what I have. I mean, you just can't leave all of your border punches out on the table in front of you at all times.  So, I don't use them like I would like to. Well,  a while back I cut strips out with my punches and now they lay there in a pile but I figured it is better than the punches laying there. Then I was at Scrap Happy with Susie and we made a diplay for her punches at store.  I loved it so much that I bought some cardstock and came home and did the same with all of my punches.

Wanna See????....

I LOVE IT!!! Now I can see all of my punches with one glance!! I put abbreviations on them as to what brand the punch is and I am going to make some tags with the punch name on them. (I need to do this so you all know what punch I am using when I create something!!) The brown cardstock is 12 x 12 and the punched images all measure 1" x 5".

Well, that is my little share for now....thanks to Susie!!
Until later....Sharon

Welcome Spring!!!

I love Springtime! The feeling of watching everything come back to life, turn green and see all of the beautiful Spring flowers blooming is just indescribable! So, I thought I would give you a flower card to feast your eyes upon this morning. I am a day late getting this here, but both of my camera batteries needed charged..  Smiley from Somebody left the camera switch "on" and drained the battery Smiley from

Anyway, one is charged and the other is on the charger here it is....what do you think??

It is actually much prettier in person, so if you get into the store take a look at it in person.
Here is the list of items I used to create this card:
Stamps: Hero Arts Hydrangea and Antique Flower Background
Inks: Memento black ink and Hero Arts Iris
Copics: V12/15/17 and YG13/17/99
Misc: EK Success punch-Swirl, white gel pen and pearls.

Very simple card to make and very nice for a Spring event of any kind. Hope you like it!!
Until later....Sharon
