Hi ya'll, did you know Prima just released a new line of stamps called Prima Princesses? I could hardly wait for them to come out and when they got to my local craft store, I was a bit disappointed. Yes, because they all had a bunch of flowers for coloring all over them. I loved the face on Madeline but just could not get into all those roses on her head. Needless to say I purchased a couple anyway with the idea I could work with them. I love my afrocentric creations which inspired me to ditch the flowers on two of the stamps. I love the out come and hope you do too. Tell me what you think of my new Big Afro girls. As always thanks for stopping by and leaving some love.

Hi Friends. Happy Sunday and I hope you are having a Blessed Day. I thought I would post a few random cards I made this past week for various reasons. (Most of the time I don't need a reason to make a card). The first one was for a FB friend who requested a card even though her birthday had passed. LOL, I am easy so I made her a sassy one. Then I decided to make my young neighbors a wedding card since they are gone to Italy to get married and should be back in a day or so. The last was a fast Hello card to give to another FB friend who was in Tucson over the weekend from Oklahoma. I love meeting up with these total strangers that I call friend. Well, that is it for today. Feel free to say hello or leave a comment. Peace out.

Hello folks. As you all know, October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. I really enjoy honoring those who have had to fight like a Girl. The journey is real and they survived. I send out about 6 to 10 cards to people I know that are survivors every year. For some I make special projects if I have the time. At any rate, if you know someone that might be lifted, send them a card or something this month and go get yours checked too if you have not already. Here is what I have done so far. Hope it inspires you to do some yourself. Thanks for stopping by.

Hi folks, I am still busy, but creating when I can. I have decided to participate in a vendor fare in November, so that means I need to get busy creating . I have made several half sheet cards using Prima Dolls and who would have guessed a grown woman would love playing with paper dolls so much. Here are the two that I made last night. As you see I love my bling and try to use it whenever I can. Have a good Tuesday and see you next time.

Hello all my blogger friends. I know I have been lazy and sometimes forget I have a blog home. I keep promising to do better---hummmmm. Well, I am here now LOL. I just want to share an artist with you that I had meet maybe 5 or 6 yrs ago at my local Michael's. Her name is Kathy Cano-Murillo. She has a site called Crafty Chica.com. She is most known for her Mexi-Boho style. She came out with a line of Latino stencils which are fabulous. I purchased a few and had fun with my distressed ink, copics , some bling and stickles. If you like these, they are sold at Blue Moon Scrapbooking. Tell me what you think of them, I love them. Thanks for stopping by.

Hello everybody and welcome to the weekend. Since I am at home all week, the weekends are just another day to play. Well, my favorite digi artist, Robert Jackson, http://www.fineartsbyrobertjackson.com/index.html, just released some new images. This is the one I like the best and love when he does this type of image. It is called The Wrap. I had so much fun with her that I had to make 3. I paper pieced the wrap and added a bit of tops to them. Please check him out as he really has a lot of beautiful images that look just like me. Well, that is it for now and I hope not to be such a stranger. Thanks for stopping by and see you soon.

Hello people, just wanted to share this cute card I just made using one of Robert Jackson's new digi images. I fell in love with her cuteness and had to create something with her. My niece is having my first great niece in November so I thought I would get it started by sending cute girly cards to her. If you don't know Robert Jackson, you should check him out here http://www.fineartsbyrobertjackson.com/index.html. He creates beautiful images including self images. Peace out
