Here are the rules:
1. Link your tagger and list these rules on your blog.
2. Share 7 facts about yourself on your blog, some random, some weird.
3. Tag 7 people at the end of your post by leaving their names as well as links to their blogs.
4. Let them know they have been tagged by leaving a comment on their blog.
Here are my 7 facts about myslef:
1. I am hopelessly addicted to Tinkerbell (ha as if you couldn't tell by my blog huh?) and have been since I first saw her at the age of 2.
2. I have 2 adorable children... My boy is 8 and my daughter is 4. They are the greatest gifts and I am blessed to have them in my life.
3. I went to the same Art College (21 years later) as where my mother and father met.
4. I am a die hard OBAMA SUPPORTER and I am all for human rights!
5. I had premonition dreams about my husband before I met him... so when I met him on March of 2003... it was literally love at first sight!
6. I have always dreamed of being a country singer... (even though I have NO voice for it!)
7. and lastly, I play DARTS of all things on a league on Monday nights... and I have come to realize that I am doing pretty good for being a rookie!
Now you want 7 picks? Well... these are going to be kind of random because I don't know that many people that have blogs... so here are my 7 bloggers who I am tagging:
1. Jillabella - Ink, Stamp, & Scrap --- She doesn't know me but I stalk her blog daily and love it!
2. Lori - Inking Aloud --- She also doesn't know me but I LOVE her creations and am excited to see her blogs when they are delivered to my email box.
3. Angela - Inky Button --- One of the first Bellas I ever met, and had a blast cropping with her!
4. Sherrie - Card Creme --- Again doesn't know me, but she is delivered to my inbox when ever she blogs.
5. Suzy - Paper Monkey --- Just adore her!
6. Lynn - The Queen's Scene --- Another Stalked woman by someone she doesn't know!
and last but not least:
7. Joanne B - Just a little something --- Yet one more woman who doesn't know that she is being stalked and "CASEd" on an almost daily occasion!
Okay ladies have fun!

Do you see the bellas in all the different rooms of the house? I have Bubblebella in the top left corner taking a bath behind "smoked glass". (You know all bathrooms have foggy windows). I have a Fella (I used fisherfella) standing in bedroom putting his change on the dresser - Purple curtains. and then downstairs is their daughter "cosmobella"... she is looking out the window with the flowerbox waiting for the friends to come party with her.
I tried to zoom in so that you can see the door... it is sooo cute.. All cut pieces of paper, so the different "panels" of the door all pop, and then the window is covered with chrystal effects so that it looks like glass in real life. See the little sign, it says Happy is the home that shelters a friend. Each siding board is laid down individually... and the grass is "mowed" perfectly! It is SOOO much cuter than these pictures show!
When you open the box it litterally "Raises the Roof" to the house. Each shingle has been punched out (3/4" circle punch) and then each one was individually shadowed and spounged and glued on one by one.
I was trying to show some of the things that you can do with a house (what the family that is having a house built by habitat for humanity will be able to do now.) So take a bath, have a room to collect money, have parties/friends, and in the background I have all the kids playing in the back yard. Two big trees with a tire swing (Good Year of course) and 3 kids playing with bugs.
The "latch" is just a piece of fiber that wraps around a cloud and a piece of "yard" to close the door.
When you open the latch and open the top of the box, I have the dividers inside... but you can also see that in the trees there are 2 squirrels playing and a blue bird sitting in it's own home. (Hidden message: Other things get homes from the one home that you build in partnership with Habitat for Humanity). Of course this picture shows the dividers as well... There is Birthday, Thank you, Just because, and For you (blank cards)
I will be showing the cards I put inside in the next couple days.

This card is for one of the daughters... she is going to be 10 years old!! I remember seeing the double lines on the pregnancy test with my friend the day she took the test. Amazing how time flies.
So about the card:
this card's layout comes from a challenge on SplitCoastStampers. A great place to get ideas and layouts, challenges, and veiw what other's are doing with the stamps you have.
The patterned paper is from a pack of paper I got from the dollar store near me. The stamps are from Stamping Bella this is Tinkerbella, and her saying. I love the dew drops on here I got them from Ellen Hutson they are also known as baubles which you can get from Stamping Bella also.
The picture doesn't show it... the real card is so much cuter because you can see all the dazzling diamonds I put on all the pixie dust, and all over Tinkerbella.
On the inside I made a name plate that pops up when she opens the card. Again it is so much cuter in real life... I used a little Tinkerbell stamp from the local hobby lobby. and again hand-drew the pixie dust and put glitter on each individual pixie star.
Anyway, I hope that you and Amber enjoy this card!

The second one was this crab one, I did just some very slight sand under the shrimp and under some of the shells... the same way that I did the sand on the shell card.
I have so many things to show you now that some time has passed, I couldn't post some of my big projects because I didn't want my mom to get on here and see everything... So now, I can show you my mother's day gifts and stuff like that.

I made this card for his birthday! Shoot my scanner isn't working for what ever reason... so I have to take a picture of it... and that never shows it quite as good...
Isn't he adorable... I changed the fishafella (from Stamping Bella) to a man holding a net... and a bag full of fish that he is going to sell! ha ha ha I love it. Here are the details: I used Kraft cardstock, Black and Not Quite Navy. The patterned paper is from BasicGrey, There is Magic Mesh. I stamped the little guy two times. I don't know why I did it that way, but I cut out his clothes and adhered them to the other one... weird that I did it that way! Use Tag Punch to make the tags. and HodgePodge Hardware. I used my slit punch to make the scallopped edge. when I stamped the little guy I used wrapping tape to cover up the fishing pole, inked up image, and then removed the tape so that the fishing pole just didn't stamp and I drew in the net with marker, and gel pens.
The bag of fish I cut some fish out of the second stamped image and put them in the middle of a plastic cellobag tied with a piece of fishing line. *I basically tied a piece of fishing line around the top of a little piece of cellobag, and then folded the bottom up around he fish and taped everything so that it looked like a bag. I thought about putting some "gel" in there to make it look like water... but didnt want any leakage!
What fun! The best part... Is I will just sign a Post-it note, and stick it to the inside of the card, He knows so many people that love fish, that this is a great card for him to "ReGive" to someone that has a birthday. (This helps spread the word about my cards.) Just remember to give credit to Stamping Bella for her artwork and my email address for contact incase anyone wants a specialized card.

This is Embrace Life... I love this set soooo much. It is new in the Spring/Summer Catalog.. it is fairly inexpensive ($23.95) and the most wonderful thing is that it matches the Designer Paper Called Ginger Blossom! Which I am also in Paper Love with!!! The color combination used in this paper is WONDERFUL! Rose Red, Groovy Guava, Cameo Coral, Rolling Rock, and Old Olive ... Oh MY GOSH... how could you not LOVE it!?!
So this card is featuring a "faux silk" technique. I Which is such an easy technique... stay tuned and I will show you how to do it... but I have to take pictures first... so I will do that today! and post later! This also uses less paper than it looks... I ALWAYS use a "paper saving" technique... Which you should always do because it makes your paper go so much further. You basically cut out the back of your Matts... and then cover that up with the top layer... and use the piece that you cut out of the matt for a new matt around something smaller.
(Okay I will show you that too.. just be patient with me. N'Kay?!)

We decided to change things up this year, so we told everyone to "buy yourself a gift, wrap it up and bring it for a Mystery Gift Game" We made it up, and I have to say it was the best game we have had in a long time! Usually the "white elephant" game is a favorite one, everyone brings a gift that is valued at $30.00 or what ever and then you pick and you can steal an opened gift or you can open a new one under the tree... It gets wild!!!
But this Mystery gift was soooo much fun!!!! Everyone brought a gift that they bought for themselves... So there is no price or value limit... you can spend what ever you want on yourself... Wrap it and make it look nice... and bring it to the tree. We lined up all the mystery gifts up and everyone took turns opening up a gift that WAS NOT their own. You open it up and show it off to the rest of the people at the party! Everyone writes on their own piece of paper who they think that gift belongs to. This was the best because my husband who is 6'4" and 260lbs. was said to bring many gifts... Ha ha ha it was quite funny! We continued on with the game and then at the end everyone reveals which gift was theirs... who ever guesses the most gifts wins the "door prize!" It was such a fun party!
Anyway, just thought I would share this fun game with you all! I have more to talk about but I will do that in a bit!
Bye for now!
