July 7th, Fun day for me stampin!

Today I was a busy beaver with my Big Shot and my die cuts after playing for about an hour I got busy and made three cards for you today, do you believe that? It's like the blog inspires me to keep busy and post some cards. Its not like I'm busy or anything I got up today at 8 AM and had to be at the doctors for another one of their oxygen tests I'm so tired of these tests then I ran to the library (it was closed) oops since I can't do anything thought I would pick up some books....not today. So I came home and started the laundry, made breakfast for Mom and started playing. I'm lovin my Studio since Becky re-organized it, she was my rock when I was going through my surgery and recovery. Now I'm better and I never see her let alone talk with her but she has her own life and with the girls home for the summer she's a busy lady.I did get this image from Becky and I love it. At first I thought it would be a lot of work to color it with Copic's but it was fun and I know a lot of guys feel like this after a bad day on the Golf Course. Thanks Beck for the images your a sweetie, you inspire me everyday.
My flower card was a labor of love with Nestabilities. I bought the Peony and got busy with the Big Shot making all sizes of the Peony then I put them all together curled the edges after I snipped them. I used a SU border punch, SU ribbons, I put the label on it an a nice brad with K & Company papers. I think it turned out cute.
I got this horse image from my friend Micki she sent some really cute images and since I love horses this was my first choice to color with Copics.

Now to let you know how good Micki is this is a card she sent me. Isn't she amazing with the Copic's and shadowing? You can find her work at: http:// artfulxpressions.net/


Well I've talked my head off and I worked my butt off (well that isn't true) I have too large a butt to work it off. Anyway thank you girls for pushing my buttons to do a blog, I'm enjoying this and although I have to watch what I say at least I'm talking to a computer and staying cool as the caretaker to Mom, thats a story for another day. God Bless you and remember God will never give you more than you can handle.

Wow, I would say you are on a roll! I love the Peony flower card! Great idea and it's beautiful. The golf one is hysterical! The horse is cute and I think I sent you some of that image too. Great minds think alike. He's a High Hopes image. Wow, and you are the lucky winner of Micki's famous card from SNR. It was displayed there the past few days. You are doing a great job on your blog and I love seeing what you are making!

I love that layered Peony card. Amazes me how that layering makes it so 3-D. Awww, thank you. My coloring isn't any better than you or the rest of the girls. I'm so glad you liked the card. I didn't know you liked horses, I'll have to stamp you some of the stamp I chose from Victoria Case. I just got it this week. You'll love it!

Hugs

Oh wow, Jeanine -- what a roll you are on! I agree -- having a blog makes a person stay on track with their stamping. Your cards are all terrific, but I especially love the horse one as I'm an animal lover -- super cute!!
