Blog Hoppin at The Character Cafe


I have to tell you all about a great new website that I have recently been introduced to by a talented scrapbooking buddy (Billie)! This site has some wonderful digi stamps. What are they you say??? Well, they are stamps that are placed in a format where you can purchase through Paypal and are sent directly to you for you to print from your printer. You can resize them and what a wonderful new way to introduce stamps especially for a person like me who gets a hair brain idea at the last minute. I was soooo excited because I entered Name That Fairy Contest and I WON!! I chose the name Nissa because she looked so much like a little friendly elf and just was so sweet!! Anyhow Kendra was so nice to send her to me as part of winning the contest! I took a print and colored her up tonight with my Prismas and added some Diamond Stickles to her dress and wings. I thought it was only right to add some Fairy Dust to a sweet little fairy...Now, I need to put her together on a card. I've just been admiring her all day...


Anyhow today!!! Today!!! is The Character Cafe's Blog hop where you will get to meet Billie and the rest of the Design Team that Kendra and Kelly selected. They have each taken one of the digi's and designed a card for the hop. Be sure to hop on over there because once you are done following the hop you will be left with a code that you can purchase their digi's at a 50% discount including a chance to be entered into a drawing....What are you waiting for....HOP on over there!!!

Going through Withdrawls


I've been quite busy the past week. I had to attend a training for a new program and it has been mentally draining which leaves me no energy to scrap when I get home. I went to Jo's last week with my MIL and she bought the Cuttlebug machine for me, which I love!!! Thanks MIL!!!! Anyhow, I did get to play around with it prior to my start of the week. I can't wait until the weekend where I can continue where I left off. The two cards that I did make I combined the Cricut cart Walk in the Garden and some Stickles to accent the words along with the Cuttle. Aren't they just the cutest things??? I think so too. I did have time to do some knitting this week which was pretty great since my shoulder hasn't bothered me as much. Funny thing though during my training and me knitting right there along came a lady who was standing there with an Alpaca baby!! YES! I was actually knitting using some Baby Alpaca when along came the same animal...What are the chances of that happening to you? Anyhow, looking forward to a great weekend and getting some time to work on what I love to do most...tootles...
