Here are a few ATCs that I made for December. Hope you enjoy!

Friday, December 4, 2009


Wow! What a week! It has just gone by so fast! And the countdown to Christmas has began. I've been in a slump, so I took a break for a day or too and focused on my list of cards I want to make. There's just so many and were to start.

The card above is a collage of Christmas Vintage Images and a really fun font that fit perfectly to what I wanted. I printed the collage I created in black and white on a red background. I then used a Martha Stewart Glitter Pen and filled in the word believe and stars. I added a twinkle in Santa's eyes, green ribbon, green rhinestones and some red and green paper mounted onto white cardstock.

Hope you enjoy and thanks for stopping by!

The First Day of December

Wow! I can't beleive how fast 2009 has quickly gone by. It seems that the days are getting shorter and I can't complete everything on my TO DO LIST!

I thought I would share with you one of my Christmas Cards I did a few years ago. Okay, 11 years ago, but I still occasionally use the picture for Christmas Cards every now and then. I hope that you enjoy!

Cards for Men~ Christmas Challenge

Alright, here is a sneak peek at some of my new cartoon characters "Almonds"! LOL
I made this card using black cardstock, Christmas Paper from DCWV Holiday Stack. Added some brads, Cricut cut snowflakes, rhinestones.

The inside of the card says "As Billy was trimming the tree, he thought he heard someone yell....Bombs-away! Hope you have a Smashing Christmas!"

Some of My Art Work

This was a fun metalic acrylic painting I did. It's a cartoon take of my chocolate lab Sadie. I love the bright colors. Copyrighted.

This is an acrylic painting of two dogs (my sweet chocolate labs) I wanted something bright and cheery. I love the colors used in this 20X24 canvas. Copyrighted.

This is a 12X18 acrylic on canvas. I painted this picture to go in my living room. You wouldn't think to pair red and purples together, but it looks totally awesome hanging on my fudge walls.Copyrighted.

This picture is titled "Wish upon a star". It has been painted using acrylics. You can faintly see one of the stars shooting past her as she closes her eyes in hopes that her wish will be granted. Needless to say, it did! Copyrighted.


This is a 10X12 watercolor of a cactus out at Valley of Fire located near Las Vegas. It was my first cactus ever painted. It didn't turn out quite liked I hope, but reminds me of my visit with nature.

Digi & Rubber Stamps Creations

I'm a little late in posting this evening, but I have been extremely busy in my studio conjuring up some more of my "Almonds" cartoon characters for digi and rubber stamping! Cute as can be! I can't wait to get them out there and see what others think about then and what YOU can do with them. You will just have to keep checking back to see the final line!

Well, this post is going to be short and sweet, but I will post one of my cards using the Martha Stewart Bird stamp collection.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you'll be back soon! Take Care!

MISSING YOU~ This is a photo of one of my paintings I did. I made the photo into a 4X6 card and it actually turned out alot better then I thought it would. She is mounted on green and blue cardstock. The inside of the card says "I Wish You Were Here".

ROOSTER~ This is a photo reproduction of one of my watercolors I painted. This is also a 4x6 card. I mounted the photo onto Drk barn Red Cardstock and added a red & yellow ribbon.

JOY~ This card is also a photo reproduction of one of my watercolor paintings I did. She is a Christmas angel holding a doll. I mounted the photo onto Christmas Green/Red/Black Glitter Striped Cardstock and added embellishments and added the word JOY.

I MISS YOU MY DARLING~ This is a 5x7 photo reproduction of another watercolor pencil I painted. I was being goofy that day and thought I would give her a real boa and glitter her lips out. She actually turned out terrific mounted onto purple cardstock.

I wanted to show off these four adorable cards. I found this black and white photo on I decided to make a set. I love her pose. It is just too sweet.
I created a card in green, blue, yellow, and purple and added lots of embellishments.
