This card my daughter Madeline made a few weeks ago!
Madeline is 11 and loves to go to my desk and stamp!!
She is a great artist, has always been the best in her art class at school!
Until this year when she decided to learn to play the violin and now she tells
me she doesn't like art so much! Maybe because do so much art at home...
Madeline has so many talents & interests.
She has always loved animals and wants to be veterinarian when she grows up!
She also enjoys designing clothes, sewing & anything to do with the computer!
This year she is in 5th grade and has a school laptop for the year!
They use the laptop all day long & bring it home to do homework!
Boy I wish we had that when I was kid!! We did not even have computers!
So I hope you have enjoyed learning more about Madeline!
Enjoy her cute card too...
My New Stamp Sets....
I received my SU order on Halloween and have been stampin' away all weekend!!
I Love these stamp sets All Holidays & Season of Joy.
This saying is so cute! I love all the different words!
I used Blue Bayou, River Rock & Very Vanilla for my card.
I also used my new scalloped punch!
And of course my New DSPaper Porcelain Prints!
I think this card is very elegant! I hope you will enjoy it as much as I do!!

More Halloween Costumes...
I could not just share my daughter's costume with everyone, These are my BOYS...
MAC(right) & MYLES(left)
The boys had to be something scary & gory!!
Mac is Jason from Friday 13th
Myles is The Grim Reaper
A few weekend's ago we rented some scary movies, like Friday 13th & Night Mare on Elm Street! Well the kids were not IMPRESSED OR SCARED!!
It has been a while since Jason & I had seen these movies....
and boy are they CHEESY!! They used to scare me to death and I had nightmares back in the DAY.... I guess with technology, movies today are cooler then what we grew up with! I feel SO OLD at 33......
Have a SAFE & HAPPY HALLOWEEN!!!!!
This is my beautiful daughter Madeline she is 11 going on 25!! She is dressed as a Dark Fairy!!
My Mother made this costume with Madeline's assistance. My mom is so talented, I can't even get the sewing machine threaded!! I guess Maddy will get the sewing bug, I guess it skips a generation. My sister Abigail is a fashion designer in LA, she is an awesome designer!!
Me I'm just a MOM, PAPERCRAFTER, STAMPER & SCRAPBOOKER!!
So I guess we are all crafty in our own way!!

Better Late then Never!!
This weeks challenge was to make an ornament! Boy was this hard for me, my stuff is still in boxes but I happened to find my cold play stamp set and came up with this cute ornament!!
My kids and always try to make Christmas ornaments for the tree every year. One year my sister decided she wanted a Barbie Christmas Tree so we decorated the tree with barbies! My kids were little at the time and my son Myles was not even part of our family yet. Madeline was 3 & Mac was almost 2. They LOVED it!!! We did the whole tree in Pink & Silver with barbie dolls as our ornaments. Well my sister Abigail is very creative and went on to college to be a fashion designer, she now lives in L.A.! I hope you will enjoy my ornaments I made!!!
Zebras & Monkeys..Oh My!!!!
This set was one of the pre-view sets I ordered, and I love animal stamps! My daughter Madeline LOVES animal. When she grows up (she almost 12) she wants to be a Veterinarian. We love to stamp with this stamp set. We also have lots of other favorite stamp sets too!! I was wondering what to do with the monkey and this is what I came up with...too CUTE!!
Stamp Set: Zoofari, Hugs & Wishes

Blogger Challenge #12
This weeks challenge was an inspiration challenge. We were suppose to post a card and also a picture of something that inspired us. Well I love the color BLUE & BROWN so I made this card using Blue Bayou, Chocolate Chip, River Rock & Very Vanilla. I don't have a picture to post because this card actually came from my Dream. I had been wanting to use this color combo, it's been on my mind for a while now. I was stuck on how I would use these colors and on Thursday Night I dreamt about this card sketch using my color combo I was having such a hard time with.
I wish I could make copies of my dreams, but that's impossible!
I hope that some of you will try this color combo too.Please enjoy my card!!! I had a GREAT time with this Challenge.....

More Garden Whimsey......
This card layout was a card layout last week on SCS, so I'm a little late posting it to you but I did manage to complete the challenge. I have been busy getting ready for school and we had a bad storm earlier in the week that caused water damage in the basement! Jason had to take up the carpet downstairs it was so wet and smelly. I was worried because that is Mac & Myles' bedroom. Mac has been having a bad reaction to something and breaking out in hives. I had to rush him to the ER a few day's ago, his whole face, belly, arms,back and legs were covered with what I thought was Poison Ivy!!! It was NOT poison ivy thank god! It was Hives!! So they gave my baby a shot of benadryl (which he did not like but was such a trooper)epinephrine and some oral benadryl. Within an hour the hives were disappearing and we went home!!
Mac has an appointment with the allergist next week. So he has been playing his video games and relaxing in the house. So you can see we have had a VERY busy week!! I will be posting more later today!!
