And now for a little humor!

My sister Jewel picked up these stamps at the Altamont Stamping & Scrapbook expo last weekend-they are just too cute.

This one I colored in with copics & layered with SU Perfect Plum then a scrap with some glitter on it.

OK-this little old lady reminds me a little of Fran Dreschers Mother in her TV show-The Nanny. I just went a little extreme with the hair!

a little hard to see but the "fur" is glitzed up with SU Iridescent Ice.

and my favorite one-this robust secretary kills me! Colored with copics to match the background paper. The inside reads "I may not be a size 6...but I can decorate what I've got!!" 

Baby cards

Here are a few baby cards using SU Bundle of Joy. Used SU markers, Apricot Appeal to layer & then a scrap. The Background paper is from Debbie Mumm Noah's Ark. 4 little sage green pearls for bling.

 Used bright colors on this & background is DCWV glitter paper. SU apricot appearl & bermuda bay markers used.

SU Regal Rose & So Saffron paper used along with a scrap from PTI Everyday Blessings. Also used Marvy Uchida Scalloped Oval punches.

And this last one is the little bear from Bundle of Joy-colored him in with my SU Creamy Caramel marker, layered using the Nestabilities Label 2 with white & SU Blush Blossom.

A few Mother's Day Cards using Bella stamps.

Here are 3 more Mother's Day cards using bella's. First one is Craveabella-used copics, SU Perfect Plum to layer & the background dotted paper is a scrap. Prima flower with a little pearl center.

Next one is with Minivanabella--so cute with all the little kiddies! Colored with copics, layered on SU Melon Mambo, Perfect Plum ribbon & same scrap for background-primar & pearl center.

Used SU Apricot Appeal to layer the copic colored image-background is a scrap. Not sure about the flower-I know it is not a prima. Note how the shopping bag on the left I stamped the image again & cut out this bag on a little piece of patterned paper.

And this last one is Daisybella-used copics to color, Melon Mambo to layer, scrap for background. Daisy center is a Michael's Dollar Spot bling. SU punches (Scalloped Circle, 1/28" circle & 1/2" circle)

A few Bella's to have on hand-used Copics, SU In Color from last year tangerine tango & kiwi kiss. Background is some paper shared with my sister Jewelbug & some prima's with a little bling center. I love the striped pants on Billboardabella! They are so fun to color with coordinating paper.

This one is for my friend Michelle who now lives in North Carolina-again copics & SU In Color from last year Pacific Point.

I made this one last week but after a trip to the Altamont Stamping & Scrapbook Expo yesterday (we froze-no heat in the building) with my sister Jewel & her friend from the Cricut MB Christina I decided to glam it up a bit. I used a Sakura Quickie Glue pen on the top & purse then sprinkled on some lilac Sparkles from Denami Design and now she is all glitzed up! I hate to be an enabler but if you don't have this pen & some of these Sparkles you should really try them-the pen was $2.50 and the Sparkles I think were 3/$8. Now I wish I had gotten more.

Felt flowers with my new PTI die cut-Beautiful Blooms II

Whipped up these 3 with some felt I had on hand. I really like this die-easy to use & versatile. Made these 3 for my friend Marissa!
