I'll ALWAYS Love My Mama!

Do you know that song? If not, head over to Youtube for a blast from the past... My mom wouldn't let me call her "mama", but she's definitely my favorite girl - now and forever more! :D

Barbara Willis, March 1954 - March 2014

I miss her, but I'm doing okay. Just needed to let you know where I've been this time. So...instead of telling me you're sorry for my loss, tell me a joke or something about your day or what you're busy creating or anything else. XOXO to you all!!

You Know I Love a Big Curly 'Fro!

Seriously, when I don't have to worry about how much time my hair takes in the morning or before bed, I have one big, curly puff of hair. Charlotte Chic-scarf included-looks like me when school is out...
Charlotte Chic - The Greeting Farm, Hopscotch paper - Basic Grey
I found my X-Press It paper while cleaning up the other day. Still having those skin coloring issues. I guess it's because I'm used to coloring on Neenah and should practice...  I tried my hand at 3D paper piecing, but since I'm oh so smart, I didn't bother to take a picture so you could see that. Maybe in the morning...

UPDATE: Here's a close view. I don't know how people do this with super detailed images!


Here's the sketch if you'd like to play along:

Yes, I sort of cheated and let the paper work for those stripes in the background. You know how I do!  :D

After All This Hair...

Phoebe digital stamp from Make It Crafty, sentiment by Studio G

After all this hair, I don't even feel like typing a post! :D  Good goodness, that hair took ages, and of course, my eyes keep going to the mistakes! I'm not going to focus on them this time. (Go me!!)

Here's the sketch from The Outlawz that I used to make this card:

Yeah, Boy!

I'm back again!! What?! I might actually get myself back crafting regularly after all...

Show Stopper digi stamp - Simply B Stamps, Paris Girl - Carta Bella
This is my card for this week's sketch challenge at The Outlawz. Can you believe I broke out the flowers? As much as I love cards with flower bouquets and such, I hardly ever open the container of flowers in my stash...

Here is the sketch if you'd like to play along:

Here's a tip - notice that the main element is not in the center of the card but in middle of the space sectioned off by the vertical and horizontal elements. I was too happy to have decided on what to use that I didn't scoot my big piece over. Had to add that flower and those gems to try to balance my card! :D

The Sketch Challenge is being sponsored by the very awesome Make It Crafty this month. Plus, we have our regular, generous crew - Oozak, Paper Temptress, 7 Kids College Fund, Rick St. Dennis, Squigglefly, and Touched by a Butterfly!  Come on over and play!

3 Days?

Lil Miss Cupid digi stamp from Robert Jackson colored with Copics


Seriously, it took me something like three days to make the most simple card! I think the problem was that I started trying to make a card for this week's sketch challenge on The Outlawz. I like my images large though, and trying to make this one fit on the card that I was determined to put her on was not working with the other elements that were to be on the card...  I finally gave up (sorry, teammates!) and just made a card.

Here is the sketch if you want to come play along:
