Teddybo Tuesday! Mums the word! LOL

Here is my card using this weeks graphic over at Teddybo.com! Isn't it so darned cute?
I love how Gayle put the letters into the flowers. I had so much fun coloring this one up with my promarkers, This paper i found in my stash, the cover is off  so i have no idea who makes it or what ! But i love the colors in it with the burgandy, buttery yellows and greyish blues. I received this fabulous pack of stampin up rub ons from a sweet friend. I LOVE them, as they have a set of four in the pack of various colors, black, brown, green and white! I love that! Of course i cannot do a card with out my stickles or my new clear gellyroll pen (thanks Hazel for the heads up on that pen!)

Paper from my stash pile not sure on the brand!

Ive been given a blog award....!

The idea of the Liebster Blog Award is to spread the love from one small blog (under 200 followers) to other small blogs. This helps to spread knowledge and readership.
To accept the award, you must:
1) Link back to the person who gave it and thank them for thinking of you.
2) Post the award to your blog.
3) Give the award to 5 bloggers (with less than 200 followers) that you appreciate and value.
4) Leave a comment on the blogs of the five people you have chosen to let them know.
"Liebster" in German means "dearest", so to carry on the Liebster tradition, I am going to pass the award on to 5 people who's blogs have been an inspiration to me and my crafting. To be honest, passing this on will be difficult as there are so many wonderful small blogs that have inspired me. It will be a challenge to chose only 5. However, as needs must, here are 5 wonderful and inspiring blogs/ bloggers that I would love to pass the Liebster Blog award on to (in no particular order).

The 5 bloggers I would like to award are;
Hazel, she is a total inspiration , her work is awesomely fantastic and who nominated me for this award, thank you Hazel!! Your too sweet!  you can find her blog HERE
Claire, she is a real sweety and i love all her work , i would love to nominate her as well. Find her HERE
Im going to nominate Kerri, she is a follower on my blog, but she is a great colorer/artist in her own right! check out her blog HERE

Ok i cannot find 2 more to nominate as everyone i know is over 200 followers!

Thanks again Hazel for nominting me !

Western Album

 Special order western album for a customers daughter graduating from college.
Of course its western, were in Kansas!!!
I love the glack glitter letters  and the western boots, a great contrast, with girly girl and western theme.A frame on the front to personalize with her picture, with a bow to adorn the side and some chipboard flowers with metal westerny buttons and twine.  Lots of ribbons to hold it all together.
 A pocket page, with a couple big tags, laced up with some aged seam binding
a large picture page with a big tag for journaling behind, just slip a picture on the picture page
with the sewn in photo corners and behind the stamped sentimant. Added a touch of lace, because she also wanted it to be girly girl as well!
 I added 2 more photo placement pages, just slip behind the ribbons, again 2 large tags
for journaling. I made the 2 rosettes with some matching lace and i got these old westerny buttons
off ebay and added some twine for a western feel.
 2 more pocket pages with sentiments stamped on and chipboard stickers. 4 more tags
for journaling or adding pictures.
 5 placements for more pictures, adding some brads for a pop of color and fun, some chipboard
sticker flowers again with those western buttons. There are 2 more large pull out tags in side pockets for more pictures and journaling! So lots and lots of room for  adding her personal touch and memorbilia!
The last two pages , one with a large photo placement page, slip behind the pretty lace and ribbon, with a metal star, and another rosetta with the western buttons.
A large tag in a pocket with FHSU the University attended by the recipient, and i thought the
"Dont Fence Me In" on the tag was perfect for a graduation!
I used the cosmo cricket wanted paper set for the papers in this album. love them!
I hope that the customer will be happy with the finished product!

Two Saturated Canary Cards

Here are 2 cards i made this past weekend. I love the saturated canary designs, so darn cute, they so remind me of my little girl at times, and her friend Amanda.  Anyways i had fun coloring them up with promarkers! I saw on someones blog that they had done the pennant design, and set up a challenge to the effect with that design, so i thought i would give the design a go and see how i liked it! I think they turned out cute! Lots of layers, some sparkle and shine with papers, and stickles and glossy accents...just so darn fun!
Ill have more things to share soon, working on a large album so that is keeping me busy! Almost done with that and will post that soon too! Thanks for stopping by!
