Home at last

Hi everyone. Well its been a whirl wind two weeks. We made it to Lady Gaga concert in Minneapolis. It was amazing. One of the best concert/show I have seen in a long time. It was more like a theatre production than a concert. Worth all the pain i endured just to be there. I even gave up shopping so I could rest up for the concert. Ended up in the hospital when we got home but out now and feeling better every day. Looking forward to the Charity PJ Party this Sunday and seeing everyone. It is always a blast. Here is a the make and take card we will be doing. I am so happy on how it turned out. I used the new SU Owl punch. Hope to see you all there. Ellena

Happy Hot Summer Day!

Hi, everyone. I thought I would post a few more cards that I have been working on. Slow and steady as they say. I am so excited I got a great box of goodies today from Stampin' UP! Some of the new Christmas stuff from the new Holiday Mini which will be coming to your mail box by Sept 1st. I can't wait to play and get some Christmas cards done for the PJ Party in Sept. On a hot day like today thinking of Christmas helps you cool down a bit. Thank who ever invented Air Conditioning for days like today. Well enough chit chat here are the cards. If you ever have any questions about the cards I have posted just email me or leave me a message and I am always ready to share. Lv E

This is one I did with my bella fairy my daughter bought me on her trip to Toronto. I was playing with a few borrowed nestibilities and got hooked just like everyone one else. Used my watercolor pensil crayons, dazzling diamond dust SU and bella bling.

Loved how my cc design Sugar plum Christmas Emma (Dat's) turned out. Used my copics and you can't really tell but I used white fun flock on her hat and outfit. I made the mushrooms look Christmasy to go with the new paper I got from DAT'S. (link below to her blog) I am still trying to figure out how to add links in my post they don't look as neat as everyone elses. I added glossy glaze to the light bulbs to give them a bit of a shine.

I am not sure where this image came from. I found it already stamped and never got to colouring her. I made the rest of the card look like a wrapped present to go with the presents she is holding. Love the new glitter card stock from DAT"s the sparkles don't rub off in your hands.

Sparkle's Creation Challenge #5

Well here are a few of my cards that I have been working on. Having a bit more energy without the chemo treatments. The radiation is not bad just a bit tired from time to time. Cat naps are great. One of them is for the Sparkle Creations rubber stamp Challenge #5. Used my cuttlebug. Have I told how much I love my cuttlebug. I used one of my new Sugar Nellie stamps, and Stampin' Up! Embosslits Dies Flower Burst. I used a mix of copics and watercolor pencils to color Coffee Time Sugar Nellie.
This second card I am using the new colours from Stampin' Up! Expresso and Marina Mist, Daffodile. I also used the same embosslits dies Flower burst, the new mini punches. It turned out great. Have a great week.

hello everyone

I can't believe it's been so long since my last blog. Well my excuse was illness related. I did not do so well on the last chemo round and ended up in the hospital for a short stay. It is amazing what some good antibiotics and 4 pints of blood will do for the body. Good a new. Here are a few cards I had worked on a while ago. Enjoy!. lv e

I have had this Sunflower stamp for a long time. Found it at the back of my stamp closet. Sitll love it. I used my Prima pensil crayons on the flower and leaves. Using my mineral blending soloution worked great. They turned out great.

yes I am still here

Hello everyone. Its been awhile since I have posted. Things have been a bit hectic around here. I have been diagnosed with non hodgkin lymphoma. So I have been a bit busy with treatments and not have the energy level that i am used to. I have had two Chemo treatments and so far they are getting a bit better everyone time. Now that I know what to expect with them it is easier to manage. I have 6 more to go. I hope to find my mojo again but right now I am consentrating on getting better and getting the bump in the road out of my life. Rest is on the menu for most days and positive thoughts. I have been receiving alot of great get well cards which I will be posting for now instead of my own. Cheers everyone. lv E
