Working on Halloween Stuff

Hello Ladies,
I know its been so long since I've done anything. I have been working on some Halloween Stuff. Here are two adorable little coffins I made.. The one is almost completely cased from Janine Tinklenberg she even gives you the directions on how to make it. Thanks Janine.
On the one coffin, I used shrink paper and shrinked the bats, SU's "From the Crypt" set and the headstone, SU's "Graveyard Gala".
I am working on making some coffin necklaces to place in mine as gifts, so hope to have them done by next weekend. Also here is a candle I stamped. I stamped all the way around the the candle.
Hope you enjoy.

Stamp sets used are all from Stampin Up. If you see anything you and would like to place an order please contact me.

On the coffins I used:
Graveyard Gala
From the Crypt
Web wheel
Night & Day specialty paper
For the handles on the coffin you can use the modern label punch, it works real well.

On the candle I used:
Tableau of terror(retired SU stamp set)
From the Crypt

Pictures of my Foster Kittens

Hello Ladies,
So many have asked about the kittens.. Here are pics of my lastest group of Foster Kittens. Bliss, Blythe, and Brayden are from the same litter born April 29th 2009. I found them at my husbands work. I trapped both mom and dad kitty, they got fixed, rabies shots and re-released, they were ferral. Bradley comes from another litter and at the time was the only kitten that had been caught. Hope you enjoy the pics, they are all little fur angels and so curious about everything...
thanks for looking

Ps.. Please check out the site on Ferral Cats. The mom and dad cats were ferral
and not happy to be a pet.

Foster Kitten Photo Album (Non SU)

Hello Ladies,
I foster kittens. I TNR (Trap, Neuter, & Release) Ferral cats. I caught a mom, dad and 3 babies back in May. Mom & Dad got fixed and shots and were released back to where I found them. The babies I kept and have been working with them. They are now up for adoption. I have a good application on the 2 girls. I decided to make this book for their new forever mom.
Please check out Ferral Cats Site if you do not know about Ferral Cats.
Hope you like.
I used DCWV Pets Stack Paper and chipboard. I also used Inkadinkado clear stamps.

Faux Alligator Stuff, who saids it can't be Pink

Hello Ladies,
sorry I haven't posted in a while my camera and computer weren't working well together...
Anyways, I think I solved the problem...
I saw the "Faux Alligator Techinque" and had to play..
I have tons of Cranberry Crisp paper left over and in the next few weeks you will probably seen lots of cranberry crisp faux alligator
Here are 3 little things I have done so far. The matchbox is in chocolate chip and I use the Stampin Up XL die for it. The purse is in Cranberry Crisp, I copied the design from Gretchen Barron's design . Then the notebook and pen I did in pink pirouette. The notebook doesn't show up as well in the photo, but is so cute. I love monogram stuff. I will probably be doing a cute little class using this techinque. To learn how to do the Faux Alligator you need to visit Jackie Topa's blog

If you like these 3 projects I have just did and would like me to send you the directions and pre-cut kit, just purchase $50.00 of Stampin Up from me and I will pre-cute all 3 projects and send to you with instructions.

If you chose to do something in Faux Alligator Techinque, send me the picture and I will post on my blog. I will even give candy for the best design using this techinque.

Have a lovely night

New "Class To Go" Clipboard and coordinating items

Hello Ladies,

I am offering another class to go, for ladies who either don't live close or have time to attend a sit down class. If you like this class to go you will get a detail manual on how to do that includes many pics. 22 pages of detailed instructions including an alternative project to make using the same basic techniques in this manual.

In this class you will be creating a clipboard, votive/paperclip holder and a coordinating card. These projects feature the Always stamp set and Sweet Always Designer Series Paper (DSP). The colors used are great trendy colors that will be popular with tweens and ladies of all ages. You will find that you can use these layouts and patterns to recreate these projects in many styles by simply changing the stamp set, Designer Series Paper (DSP), card stock and inks used to change the color palates, styles and themes. All the inspiration you need to keep your desk, counter or work area organized and looking great!

The last few weeks, I was fortunate I could go the hosptial everyday and be with her and help with my dad and rest of my family. She was a wonderful lady and will be truely missed.
I have enclosed a copy of her obituary incase you chose to read. She had a full and wonderful life and I can not wait til I can be with her again.
