Little Darlings Winter Release!

Hello everyone! Today is Little Darlings Winter release. Instead of doing a week of sneak peeks we decided to do it all in one day. PLUS you can buy them today, in the Love to Stamp Store and they are on sale for $6.50!!! Pretty cool! Not only do we have our amazing designers creations we also have 3 guest designers joining us today.

The first stamp I'd like to show you is my favorite and I think it will be a favorite amongst all of you. Here is Little Darlings 'Snowy Friends'. The back ground is one that will be released next year. It's actually a grassy hill back ground. Angie used the image in Puerto Rico and said "It can go with any stamp, well not a snowman image" SO.. I said wanna make a bet!
 So here it is ladies in Puerto Rico! :) *waves*




Next stamp being released is so cute! I remember doing this when I was a kid, if it snowed now, I'd probably still do it! LOL Here is Little Darlings ' Catching Snowflakes'.

The last image I have to show is so sweet and girly. I just love it. I had to use a girly color.
Here is Little Darlings ' Ice Dancer'.

It's a Girl!

I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving. I ate so much in the last 2 days! I can't remember feeling so full.. oh wait yes I can, in Puerto Rico.. man o man.. I'm going to need to go on a diet.

I haven't made a card in like a week and it feels like F-O-R-E-V-E-R! I made this card about a month ago for my moms friend, who was going to a baby shower. The colors were pink, black and white. Baby stuff tends to give me the he-be-jeebees, LOL! Everyone loved the card though. :)

I also combined this card with this weeks Just Magnolia and hAngler challenge. The theme is pink, red, white. I hope you you will join us over at Just Magnolia and hAngler

Have a wonderful weekend!

Christmas Thank you Card.

It's time for a new challenge over at Little Darling Challenges. This challenge theme is Thank you. I had just gotten this paper and really wanted to use it so I combined Christmas and Thank you. I made the sentiment and if you'd like it you can get it from my Free Digital Sentiments section on my blog. I used Little Darlings ' Decorating the Tree' stamp. I love this image. I'm sorry for the poor quality photo but I made this card right before I left for Puerto Rico and I forgot to take pictures of it! I'm glad I snapped a quick picture with my iPhone aka best phone ever! :) Anyways Yamille chose this card to keep for a sample in her store.

Anywho.. I hope you will join us at Little Darlings. Remember you do not have to use a
 Little Darlings image to join, although the prize is greater if you do!

Monday November 28th there will be a new Little Darlings Release! YIPPIE!

Pictures of my Trip to Puerto Rico!

Well, I'm back from my trip to Puerto Rico. I had such an amazing time. I met so many wonderful, friendly people and had a great time with Angie. Yamille, the owner of Memory Box Scrapbooking Store is an amazing! She is fun and outgoing and brings many smiles to a room.

On Friday and Saturday we had all day classes and I ate so much!. Angie is an amazing Copic instructor, I learned so much from her. Sunday we went to Old San Juan and walked around and went shopping and ate so much! Monday we went shopping at the Mall and a Clothing Boutique and ate SO MUCH! Yes I ate more in this trip than I eat probably in 2 weeks! It was all delicious, too!


So here's my pictures..

This was the view from mine and Angie's hotel room.



This is the class before everyone came in.


Here it is full. Almost 50 people on each day! All such amazing and talented people.


Yamille made us dance.. I do not dance well, AT ALL! Here's Angie getting her grove on!


Here's me .. I tried.. LOL!


Angie hard at work.






Angie and her stamp line on the wall at Memory Box! Super exciting!!


Angie, Yamillie and I after the 2nd day of class.


Yamille's gorgeous store, Memory Box.





Out to dinner on Saturday night.


Here's some photos of Old San Juan.




Here's the beach, we were olny there for a few minutes. A storm was coming in and it was really windy but beautiful!





This was our last night at dinner. The food was amazing!


That's all. I've got more photos on my Facebook page, if you are interested. Thanks so much Yamille, for everything and a HUGE thank you to Angie for inviting me you are the best!!!

A scheduled Just Magnolia post!

This should have gone up FRIDAY!!! GRRRRRRR BLOGGER!!!!!!!!!!
I'm back from Puerto Rico and had an amazing time! I'll post more later.




Hello! This is a scheduled post since I'm not at home and I'm in Puerto Rico with my wonderful amazing friend, Angie! If it wasn't for her I would be sitting my butt at home! LOL! I hope I remember to take lots of pictures, I hope I didn't get lost in Texas during my lay-over, I hope I don't freak out waiting for Angie's plane to arrive in Puerto Rico .. can you tell I'm nevous!! (I'm writting this Tuesday) I KNOW I'll be fine.. just butterflies. As much as a vacation is needed I will miss my kiddos, it does make me sad that I'm leaving my family. Moms need a break too though! I've have more vacations this year than in the last 14 years.. I guess I'm making up for lost times, eh? OK I AM nervous.. look at me rambling!!!!!!!!!

This card is for Just Magnolia. Our theme was chosen by Jan and is to use Black, Grey, Red and White. I thought this was going to be difficult but I love the way this card came out. I've been wanting to do something with 2 images and one being able to open up like this. I wanted the door to show a little more behind Tilda... I'll have to try it again, with different stamps, of course.

Well, I hope you like my card and can join us at Just Magnolia this week.
