Of course the arrival of my new Rouge Redhead stamps was also a great incentive!!! So with no further ado Happy Anniversary Lynn!

Okay, so what is Halloween without a pretty little witch? Here is Hannah all ready to go to a bowling party with friends last week. She is only 5, but Mommy made her a pretty witch (now we know how pretty she will be at 16). Hannah wants the green faced ugly one for tonight, so Grandma will go and do her make up. I had boys so ugly makeup I can do really well...............LOL

Fans are the theme for the random red head challenge over at http://gingersnapcreations.blogspot.com/2011/04/gc99-random-redhead-challenge-fans.html AND red and gold are the color challenges AND because they have been following an eastern theme, with Geishas this card came about. My Geisha is from my supply of "OLD" stamps designed by Judikins. I stamped on printed paper for her kimono and on gold for her fans. The large fan in the background is also an oldie but goodie, but I failed to label it way back when and my memories is toooo full of junk to remember who created it. LOL I embossed the gold background and added some oriental paper I found stuffed in a drawer. It is all layered onto a red card. The large fan was stamped onto tracing paper and the colored with ink. It stared out as a mask to do some back ground stamping and then I went a different direction :O
This second card was made for the Geisha challenge, but alas I didn't get it posted in time.
This image was from an image swap, so creator is unknown to me.
I colored her with pencil and layered her on different blues, adding a pot of burgundy. The Japanese characters are from Hero Arts. A 3-D sticker at the top and a metal fan at the bottom finished the card.
Thanks for taking a look, and I do apologise for not posting very often. Spring is a very busy "family" time for us, and this year I am working at a different job that REQUIRES a set of headphones that strap you to a pc, so I'm not always ready to come home and sit back down in front of our pc. BUT I have been stamping...........just not posting LOL

http://cheerfulstamppad.blogspot.com/ and this is my DT card for the challenge.The sponcer for this challenge is Mo's Pencil Design. When I sat down to make this card I just couldn't get any layering ideas to work. (Needless to say I now have a few of this image colored and layered onto different backgrounds laying around.LOL) So I went "old School" and stamp directly onto the card. Sound simple? When was the last time you tried this??? Well it was FUN to just go back to basics. I colored her with pencil and markers. I found that if I color with a pencil and find a matching marker, it makes the greatest blender and a strong color. I added silk flowers and pink rhinestones to finish it off. The images are from Imaginations and Inkadinkado.
Thanks for stopping by and having a peek.

It has been 3 weeks and I am just now starting to pick up my stamps
and play a little. Allergies have been horrible this year and triggered the head and chest cold, but now the almond blossoms have fallen and things are getting better.
Over at: http://cheerfulstamppad.blogspot.com/ Vicki is having a Be a Sport challenge. Dude Time Doodles is the sponsor and Boni was nice enough to send me "Leif Blower" to use in this challenge. Isn't he just great. So, get out YOUR sport stamps, or what you think SHOULD be a sport and join in the fun and a chance to win!!
I colored Leif with pencils and double mounted him on dark green cs and some hand made paper I had laying around here.
Thanks for stopping by and don't forget to join the challenge!

Three blue grunge flowers with blue rhinestones, mounted on the same blue cs strip finished it out.
Sorry about the crooked scan, kind makes the neck a little stiff just looking at it.
So thats my blue on blue card and it got me that good old music down loaded to my PC, now to get it on my IPOD!
Thanks for stopping by.

Yikes! I cannot believe it has been a month since my last post!! Where oh where does that time fly off to? I have managed to steal a few minutes here and there to finish the Gingersnap challenge: Art exchange-coasters-hearts over at: Gingersnaps I chose the oval shape and managed to get all four finished Mr. Mojo took a leave of absents and left me dangling, but as I gather some ideas and found the supplies I started on a roll (I did have to steal some time here and there from the drama in my life) I did two ovals vertically and two horizontally, using graphics I have gathered from place to place. They are all mounted on chip board and then covered with canvas before starting. After applying the graphics in a heart shape there were lace, feathers, pearls, flowers and rhinestones added, along with stamped images. Loops were added for hanging purposes, if the recipients wish to hang them. I almost kept them and did 4 different ones, but time being what it was I had to get them in the mail, so the scan are all I have now. This is a great and fun challenge, and if your up-to-it you should give it a try.Hopefully my posting can go back to being done on a regular basis. I have things scanned to be posted, but haven't had the time to get them to the posting stage. Thanks for stopping by and taking a look.

http://cheerfulstamppad.blogspot.com/ You need to hop over there and enter this challenge, the winner gets a TJ Fancy Fold CD!!!!!
I used my Cricut for the heart, ran a pigment ink pad around the edge and used a Craftsmart stamp for the sentiment, then embossed with an antique gold. Vintage print for the back ground with a touch of sheer metallic ribbon and small silk flowers finished it off. The die cut has glitter in different places that the scan does not pick up. I need to spend some time and just practice my photography and forget the scanner.
Thanks for taking a look and as always your comments are appreciated. ;-D

This second card has an image that is one of my favorites (I know I keep saying that LOL, but it is true!!) The shoe is from Rubber Necker and I have created this shoe in as many ways as possible, just so much fun to play with. I stamped it on white cs and embossed with clear. I colored in the sole with black marker, then trimmed it out. The sole was then covered with glossy accents and red rhinestones were placed in each dot. ( sure glad I got them on sale, it takes quite a few to do this and in TWO sizes!) I found a scrap of vellum w/ gold hearts on it and
mounted that onto white cs, the onto black glossy, and tieing the ribbon at the bottom. This was all mounted onto a red glossy card, that is white in the middle. The upper sentiment is from Uptown Rubber Stamps. The inside reads " Chocolate does the rest" and it is from The Boyds Collection. I'll glue a small bite size candy bar underneath it just before I mail it out. I wish this scan could show off the glossy, and sparkly parts of the card.
