Welcome to my wacky world. I call it that because sometimes I feel like I am off in my own world. As the saying on one of my stamps and
my fridge magnet says "I know i'm in my own little world. It's OK they know me here."

Here you will learn a little about me and my life. Like my marriages, my critters and my hobbies. I love taking photos. so along the way there might be alot of photos.My life is full of ups and downs, more often the downs. I just try to keep on a happy face. Doesnt always work when you suffer from anxiety and depression. But I still always manage to keep my Bubbly little personality.

4 Legged Critter Swap! Finally Done!!!!!


Well I managed to get them done.  It only took me 2 weeks but I am proud to say they went in the mail the other day.  I finished my last set up that morning since i couldnt sleep.  Dont really like how the tiger ones turned out.

I had to do a spot in Mice, Penquin, Bear, Reptile(turtle), Hedgehog, and Tiger.  These are the cards.  I cant remember all the info but i'll do my best.
The first one here is my mouse cards.  the images are Great Impression. *sorry not the best picture.  The paper is Stampin Up.  Not sure about the DP.  Next is my Reptile Turtle Cards.  Again the image is Great Impression, and the paper is Stampin Up along with my ink. 
Then for my next card Penquin.  All the images are yet again Great Impressions, and the paper or majority of is Stampin up I think.  I cant remember.  This card i colored with SU markers, Spica Glitter pens, Gelly roll glaze, suffle, glitter and metallic pens.   Then there is my Bear Cards.  Stamps are  from Northwoods, and the paper is stuff i had laying around.  This card i used colored pencils and gamsol on it.  The coloring turned out pretty decent i think. 

Then we got my Awsome Hedgie card.  I got the image from a PIF thread over on SCS.  I was lucky i had 8 images from it and i only needed 4.  Yet again the Ink, Markers, and Paper is SU.  I then added Petalloo flowers and ribbon that i got from Michaels.  and the lil bit of DP I just grabbed out of my stash of scraps.  The Embossing i used my cuttlebug bubbles folder. 
Then There is my okay Tiger card.  its on black cardstock and one set of paws in the center has orange and black striped DP behind it.  The DP behind my Tiger (which is cut out using Deckled Oval by spellbinders) i used my orange Tiger striped glossy DP.  and then i added a  lil bling on the bottom corner.  I am thinking it might have looked better if i would have fussy cut out the tiger and made the glossy dp a lil smaller so that the other strip of dp which had paw prints on and staying about cats would show more. 

so there you have it girls my 2 almost 3 week escursion on a card marathon for just 1 swap.  I know i am crazy. 

April turned out to be a super busy swap month for me.  I am in 3 secret sister swaps, plus my Divine secret sister swap and oodles of other.  i know i have to get crackin on more cards as i got a clean and simple due for the 6 and a recycled forest swap due on the 11th. 

Hope you enjoy ladies!  Happy Crafting to you!
