Hey there friend!

2nd post for today!

I must say I did some crafting today, I had some quality time which I really needed to get caught up with some outstanding projects that are coming up for posting soon.   I went a drift with this project, but it's so so gorgeous in real.   I will have this one hanged in my crafty wall, might have to stash it from my mom or daughter, LOL!  Knowing both of them they are going to ask for it or beg for me to make them one.  
The finish shadow box frame is 8 x 8 and it takes a 12 x 12 cardstock .  And the size is just perfect, so my head is spinning on making more of them.   

Ingredients on my frame:
Panda in the frame are from the Cricut Pagoda Cartridge.
Mama panda is cut at 3" and the babies at 2",
Panda on the right bottom corner is from Sister Stamps (Shin-Shin) and layered on 6 images to give it some dimension.  I used copic markers on that stamp.
Bamboo cut at 6" and 5"
sentiment - Stampin' Up 
Spellbinders die, ribbon and gems
papers - Basic Grey

Thanks for another peek!

A watering can gift!

Hello everyone~
Hope you all had a marvelous weekend, and had some crafting quality time.  For me hubby and I spent Saturday morning pruning our hibiscus hedges and cutting back are palms.  Then in the evening we went to a graduation party, it was a lot of fun, yummy food and entertainment was awesome.   So today is my crafty day, playing catch up with other commitments that are due soon and also made a gift for my hair dresser which her birthday is coming up this week.   She loves working with her plants on her spare time and I thought this would be perfect for her.

Ingredients used:
watering can template - Splitcoast Stamper's
butterfly die - Sizzlits
Rosettes - Tim Holtz
button die - C.C. Designs
Chenille's for the stems
pearls, tissue paper and added foam for the base to hold up the flowers
Cuttlebug embossing folder
papers - Doodlebug

Thank you for helping me grow!

Happy weekend peeps!
Here's a quick card that I just go through finishing off this morning.  I've  bought so many digis that they are  all sitting in my files to be worked on.  And here's one of them from Saturated Canary (Grow).  And with this new computer and working with Windows 8 I'm still segregating my files and re-doing them.  It's a bit more advance but I'm finally getting to love it, theirs newer steps in different programs that I've being learning through you tube.  So anyhow here's my card:

Recipe used:
papers - Kaiser Craft ( Lilac Avenue Collection)
pearls, flower from RAK
Spectrum noir markers - love my new shades of pinks & purples

Enjoy your beautiful crafty weekend!

Quick Update~

It was a bit of a nightmare with installing my computer yesterday, I think (LOL) that I've got all my files transferred to my new computer.  Yes, my oldie started giving me issues almost a week and a half ago and with consulting with a computer friend and hubby my only solution was getting a brand new one.
I had her for almost 4 1/2 years and my hard drive was starting to crash.  Every time I would get on in a flash it would shut down telling me it's collecting data for crash dump and one of my disks need to be checked for consistency  then it would go through 3 stages then restart.  It was getting so frustrating especially when I was in a middle of downloading my digis to print or a picture, it would shut down and when it would re-start   back on all my download files were gone :(. It took several CD-R's to down load all my important files, luckily I had packs of them.  Old school I did it the hard way, now I know better to get me a flash drive(time saver) hehe.  Hubby and I bought it Friday night and we had them install my anti-virus and MS Office programs and that took several hours for them to do.  And there went more $$$$ spent on my new computer.  Of course he didn't want to get me any cheaply one so he bought the top of the line.  
What blew me away is my mouse and keyboard is wireless, I'm stoked!  And majority all the new computers don't come with MS Office anymore.  Now I have Windows 8 and I'm trying to get used to all the new goodies in here.  So with this in toll, I've been segregating my files and will be by to catch up with you all real soon.  
Toodles for now~

I was totally surprise to get this June's kit sooner for this month. LOL!  Yippee!  Anyhow if you like Stampin' Up products here's one cool kit to purchase.  It's quite a surprise because no one knows what will be coming in that cute red box. This month it's all about hexagons. The kit comes with everything except adhesive. Depending what the project is, usually cards are in a set of (4) plus with envelopes.. I haven't quite did May's one yet, it was a mini album and I haven't decided yet how to finish it up yet!
So onto my card - oops on the sentiment it went down a little crooked.
