My little Pony

You know what I love about my prismas and oms? I can use them with digis and that is perfect because the challenge over at The Greeting Farm is to do a card using one of their digis. This is the first Greeting Farm image I ever got!!!! I bought it to do my step daughters birthday cards . Love this lil Unicorn and its still one of my favorites!!!

Last night I did some running

Last night I did some running! On a card I mean!!!! You all know me better than that. Emily came over last night and we sat and made cards and ate cookies ( now that part sounds like me) . I made this card using a set she has from My Favorite Things, for the 365 Cards challenge which was to use Kraft. When I read kraft my eyes lit up, my ears perked up and I giggled. Everyone knows how I feel about Kraft cardstock. Its my signature color. I use it on almost every card so I loved this challenge!!!! I paper pieced this SkinnyIdontreallyneedtorun girl in teal patterned paper and kraft. I love the saying on the side ( If you cant read it , it says : Five more minutes and I can have that cookie!) Perfect for us sitting there eating cookies. haha

We need girl time

Tony and I were talking the other day about trademark cards. You know what I mean? How someone says you have a style thats kind of your trademark? Well I told him " I dont have a trademark on my cards" . He argued that I do . I use Kraft colored cardstock somewhere on almost all my cards. I never really thought about it but yeah I guess I do. Looking back through my cards I probably use it at least 70 % of the time. Funny how I didnt notice but he did. I made this card (using some kraft cardstock haha) for a friend and for the Flutter By Wednesday Challenge.

The other day I was looking through Splitcoast Stampers in a mad search for Knight card ideas for some cards that needed made and I came across this one by Jocelyn ( JoBear2 on SCS). Isn't that the cutest card ever???? So I messeged her and asked her if she would please stamp me out some of these darling images since Elzybells is out of business ( snivel snivel). Well not only did she say yes but yesterday I received all these images in the mail from her all the way from Australia! Shes soooo sweet! And all her cards are darling.

Thats Distressing

Posted by Lena Nunn at 8:34 AM 0 comments
What a great challenge to do a distressed card over at The Greeting Farm. Its how I feel lately. I had the flu for two weeks and although its mostly gone sometimes I still have coughing fits. Last night when I was making this card I would color for awhile, cough a lot, color for awhile , cough a lot. You get the picture. I love this image that was a freebie on TGF so I wanted to use her before Easter was over!!! Shes colored in with prismas and OMS. The paper is new and from Michaels ! Isn't it just yummy?!?

P.S. Have you entered the blog candy yet?

Card for a kid

Posted by Lena Nunn at 8:45 AM 3 comments

Ahhh what a nice weekend ! Got some work done in the garden to get ready for tours of the butterfly farm . Seems like how much work you do there is always more though.
On Sunday night I actually stamped some and did this card. The challenge over at Simon Says stamps is a card for a kid so I wanted to play along. I love this In Style Stamp image and have used her many times. She is so adorable! I colored her in with my prismas and OMS. I put some liquid applique on her cake and heated it with heat gun. Its hard to see in pic but her frosting is fluffy.

For the Boys

Posted by Lena Nunn at 10:31 AM 1 comments
Today the twins turn 18! Where did the time go? When I met Tony they had just turned 13 . For their birthday Jammie made them an xbox cake! It was amazing!!!! The challenge over at the Greeting Farm was to make a card for a boy. Now I admit boy cards are the hardest for me even though I have more boy birthdays in my family than girls but this was a super challenge. I used the boy from Sweet and Toxic and colored him in with my Prismas and OMS.

I have the sweetest guy!

Posted by Lena Nunn at 10:17 AM 2 comments
There is times in my life when I wonder how I got so lucky to have found such a sweet guy. Most guys would'nt be caught dead with a stamp or marker in hand but yet Tony sits and stamps with me just so he can spend time with me ( because when Im home usually im at my stamp desk) . So Tony put a round table in our bedroom ( we have a huge bedroom) with chairs so we can sit up there and stamp together. Sometimes he just draws digis for him and Anthonys site but other times he will make a card. This is a card he did because im a big Giants fan ( not just since they won the series either but since I was itty bitty). I think its stinkin cute! Hes so sweet to do this just to spend time with me. I think some other men could take notes on this behavior hahah.

My Bombshell of a Friend!

Posted by Lena Nunn at 11:36 AM 2 comments
My friend Emily always uses the bombshell stamps and Ive used her stamps a ton of times but never really made a card with them. Well in my house Tony is famous for coloring images and then not making cards with them ( like with this one) so I snagged her from his stack of colored images and went to work . I initially liked the layout but after I got it all done the squares looked plain so I stamped the flowers in there. Now it doesnt really look like it matches.... Emily I need your bombshell expertise!

Sometimes my Dorkyness amazes me

Posted by Lena Nunn at 11:32 AM 2 comments
Sometimes Im such a dork I suprise myself. Since I have had the flu and been off work I kind of lost track of time. All ive been doing lately is sitting and watching tv ( seriously daytime tv is horrible!). After so many days of mopeing I decided on Monday ( which I thought was Sunday) I would play along with the Anita be Stampin Challenge and do the sketch. I was so proud of myself for completing this card with no naps in between but when I went to post it on what I thought was Monday ( but was Tuesday) I saw I was too late. Opppsss! Oh well at least I used my ABS set that I won for the last challenge I entered.

Flu Cards

Posted by Lena Nunn at 11:25 AM 1 comments
I admit it , ive been slackin lately!! I have had the flu for 2 weeks!!! Seriously kicked my butt and I didn't do much stamping during that time. I did make a few cards ( which I won't be sending out because they probably have germs on them haha). This is two cards that I made using some Orange and Blue Stampin' Up! DP. Yes, I have stopped the hoarding of the SU papers. I love this color combo as it is so bright and cheery.
