*Busy* Friday!!

Holy cow I'm busy today!! I seem to have so much stuff on the go scrap wise LOL. The house I'm staying at has a giant counter top that looks onto the TV area ... so I have every project out so I can go back and fourth while watching TV. That being said, stuff is getting done!! My Christmas cards are just about all glittered so I can snap a picture tonight, my DT stuff is shaping up not too bad too. Be sure to check back tomorrow for my reveal of my guest DT work for Scrapshotz and I'll post my Christmas cards too. Along with some other cards I've been working on. For today I wanted to share a couple of pictures I got yesterday of my favourite Rottweiler in the world!! Have a great day everyone!!

Wednesday *Sketch*

Hello everyone .... it's Wednesday and you know what that means .... a new sketch!!! This is the 4th sketch I will be posting on my blog. I love sketches, they really help me when I'm in a rut or feeling uncreative and even just for something different to try. Let me know what you think of my sketches, I hope they help you out as much as they help me!! Don't forget to link me in the comments section if you create something with my card I'd love to take a peek!!! I love seeing all the different creations based on one sketch!! I'll post my card in the next few days!

As I said in my last post, I have been crazy busy creating Christmas cards!!! I have done likely over 200 this year, I just have to add some glitter to the last bunch of them and they will be ready to share, so look for that tomorrow .... I love the way they have turned out!!

Ok so since I announced my blog candy winner last Wednesday .... of course the random number generator picked the one post that I was unable to contact and that person has not checked back, so I think it's fair that I have waited a week, I am going to redraw for the yummy blog candy ............ and the winner is ............. GrammaStamper (Barb)!!!!!!!!! Congratulations Barb!!!! I will email you too!!! Thanks again everyone who left me comments, I hope you keep stopping by!!!

Something else that was kind of exciting today too, I met with Sheri from Imagine - a store in downtown London that sells local artists work ... if you are in the area you should stop in, its a brand new store and has some awesome work in it, oh and *yours truly* will have some Christmas cards for sale as of late Friday evening!!!!! Below is Z-Fold card, I just finished making 10 of these.

Let me know what you think!! Thanks for stopping by!!

Saturday & *Adorable Card*

Happy Saturday everyone!! It has been a busy week, and even busier weekend for me!!! I spent last night scrapping with my dear friend Carla. We actually got lots done too!! LOL. I've been scrapping like a mad women because I finally got a groove going ... I've made a goal for myself to make 1 card a day ... that way I can set 1 hour aside, and that's my hour to just create!!! I'm going to post my card created from my sketch found on the right hand side of my blog. Watch for the next sketch coming on Wednesday ... and a fun RAK to be drawn from anyone that creates a card from my challenge!! I've fallen in love with the look of outlining around stamped images, many people use copics for it, but I found an Awesome prismacolour marker that does the same thing, and it was on sale today. It is a subtle look ... if you can see it in the picture let me know what you think!! Thanks for stopping by!

Supplies: Image - Stamping Bella, Sentiment - Stampin Up, Cardstock - Bazzill & Stampin Up, Pattern Paper - BG Mellow, Punches - Stamping Up. Image coloured with prisma & gamsol technique and outlined with prismacolour marker.
