New Birthday Card

I made this card for a friend of mines Birthday....obviously we play Bingo together!

I used a Bingo embossing plate, I think it was Tim Holtz. I colored her in with my ever trusty Copic Markers, adding bits of glitz with my Atyou Spica pens (which I can't get enough of)! On her glasses and the bingo daubs I used glossy accents to make it shinier. I used a martha stewart punch on the purple edge. I had some really nice glitzy glitter like ribbon and a Petaloo flower.
On the inside of the card I used the same glittery ribbon and these really nice dark pink square embellishments (I know I got them at Joann's), I used another martha stewart punch on the edge of the white paper.
This was the envelope my puppies Petey and Buddy wanted to help me color so I had to make it look all right, then when I got to bingo , with my hands full and the card in my hand....the sky's opened up and dumped water bucket by bucket...some guy saw me from inside and ran out to help it didn't run too much!
Now, to find time to do some more when I'm not on a time I hope you all enjoy.

Scrapbook Expo

I'm starting to find my mojo, slow but, sure...spent the day at the Scrapbook Expo , found out about it at the last minute and wrangled my friend to go with me. Bought a lot of stamps...a bunch of Sara Kays, Tina Wenke, foil to emboss with, micro fine glitter that you can actually use your copics over the top of it, it was awesome. I hope to now find time to get some stuff done.
I've had the death of my mom on New Years Day, a friend who passed away from H1N1, 2 of my adopted "boys" have serious health issues, and one of thems 1 1/2 yr old son has had brain surgery twice in less than 2 weeks. So any prayers you can send up will help them all.

I have a head full of ideas , just need to find time to do them :-). And, pray my memory can remember

So, don't give up on me!! I'm getting ready to get some stuff done. I have the 37 cards that I did with Very limited papers that I took to Slovakia scrapbook I did them as far as I could, so now on to finish the embellishments! So , hopefully those will get posted soon.
Stay tuned.....
