I changed the Rootbeer mug to just a plain Beer mug, and I made Beer sweeties lol. This is one of the best things I like about Digi Images. I can flip the image and make duplicates so easily!!
The second is a Laundry Detergant bottle, and SNUGGLE instantly came to mind. A great way to tell someone you need a suggle!
Finally, is the tea image. How sweet is this!!!? I coupled this with a MFT sentiment that I felt worked perfect with it. The fun part is this image can go with so many sentiments - I had easily match 5 to it and choose the MFT one.
Also don't forget about the new MSB Card Scents. There are so many fun ones and even scents for the up coming Fall/Halloween Season. Have fun trying to pick JUST ONE :) lol
Thanks for visiting and as always please feel free to leave comments - I love to hear your feedback!
August 16, 2009
I used a Stampendous stamp for the sentiment, which I think is arodrable for Halloween. I have been anxious to use it. I also used a Dustin Pike Digi image for the web. It's part of his 'Corner Spider' Digi. I love the background DP here. It is so sparkly close up and I used stickles on the web so it would match.... you can never have enough sparkle!
I used SCS Sketch Challenge 240 for this :) I thought it was the perfect layout for these images. Thanks for stopping by and please leave me a comment - I love to hear opinions - GOOD and bad lol.
August 15, 2009
just released new Halloween Images, They can be purchsed direcdtly off his blog. Check them out if you haven't had a chance. I was anxious to get a card made today using one of the many images from the new Halloween set. I really do love his work!!
I thought the stacked Pumpkins were adorbale. I used SCS Sketch Challenge #241, but I made an error. I made both back panels the same size and one should have been slightly smaller than the other. No harm done, lol....I still loved how it came out.
Thanks for looking - DEE :)
August 13, 2009
Also Modern Sugar Blvd has released CARD SCENTS...and tons of them too!! Head on over to the MSB blog and check them out. There are so many to pick from ....I'm waiting on Pink Bubble Gum and Caramel Apple....EXCITING. I'm going to be using the Caramel Apple for all my Fall/Halloween Cards so stay tuned.
Also I have some Dustin Pike cards to post too. I'm a serious PIKEhead lol.
Thanks for being so patient. My abscence, due to family issues, has really knocked me all out of whack, but I'm slowy catching back up!! Stay tuned!
Hope you are all having a great day
HUGS - DEE :)

I know it's been a long time since I have been here but family matters took over the last two months that took me away from my PC and all things Card Making.
Things are finally getting back on track for me and I hope to be back soon to do more cards etc.
I really missed you guys and I'm glad to be back! Hopefully I can have some cards up this week - woohooo
June 13, 2009
I'm almost back home - I thinkz :) I don't have a card to show today, but I will be returning on the 15th and I may threw something fun together for my return using one of the new images that got released this past week at MSB. Thanks for visiting my blog while I was on vacation and I appreciate all the lovely comments you guys leave.
Here's a cute joke I got from my B/F in email today.
A woman walked into the kitchen to find her
Husband standing around with a fly swatter
"What are you doing?"
"Oh. Killing any?"
"Yep, 3 males, 2 Females," he replied.
Intrigued, she asked.
"How can you tell them apart?"
3 were on a beer can,
2 were on the phone.
BE BACK SOON :)
HUGZ - Dee :) (hoping to return with a killer tan - PLEASE OH PLEASE) lol

The challenge was to use this image (and there are also wonderful champange glasses as well). Part of the challenge is to use something old, something new, something borrowed and something blue....how fun is that! So here is my take for the Challange.
OLD: The Swarovski Crystals
NEW: The Image :) and the Metallic Paper I used as a base (a lil hard to see in the picture but yummy IRL)
BORROWED: The Glue
BLUE: The DP didn't originally have blue so I used my Gel pen to add blue touches and of course the blue flowers, blue Prima and the blue CS.
Hope you guys join in on the fun :) check the MSB Blog for details Saturday afternoon after 1PM! And please make sure you check the other Sugars blogs (links in my right sidebar) ...there work is so amazing, and you will enjoy all the previews - I promise!
Also, I will be gone on vacation until the 15th :) Any posts you see from now til then will be auto posts. I sure hope they work *crosses fingers*. I wouldn't deprive you guys of sneak peeks and previews - the horror of it! lol :) Plus.... MSB is also having a major release on June 11th and you won't want to miss out on that. Wait til you see the adorable 4th of July images that are coming out!!!! They are to die for. Have a wonderful week guys, and I will miss you all!

Here are the 2 new previews for release today. First up is 'Precious Dance Scene'. I totally looooove this image and I had a lot of fun creating this. How pretty is she!? for this card I used SCS Sketch Challenge SC229 and I flipped panels 3 and 4 to fit my image size. I also cased a card which I never have done before, this is my first case. It was so lovely I couldn't help myself! Here is the card I cased from EmileeAnn. The result was this....
Next up was a project I created with another new image, 'Mr. Devil's Food Cake' ... HOW CUTE IS THAT NAME!!! As soon as I saw this image I knew what I would make. I have a bunch of Wilton Icing Dyes (pictured below) and I needed some type of storage for them. I created this box just for that reason :)
I used stickles for the icing :) and my oversize crystals which I think are awesome.
Thanks for visiting and have a wonderful day!
May 27, 2009
I used SC230 from SCS and I used my Rockabilities paper from Stampin' Up. Hope you like it!

Modern Sugar Blvd has released more images this past weekend - yippeeeee. YES - more new images!!! lol. Here is the project I created using 'Simply Ava' which can be found at the Modern Sugar Blvd Store under the new line called 'The Sista's' :)
I created a Rainy Day Fund box. Expecially with the economy being as bad as it is lately it's always smart to save for a rainy day (or a shopping spree of craft supplies lol). So as soon as I saw the new image, I knew exactly what I wanted to do with it. I found this wooden box at Hobby Lobby and it was prefect for my idea.
First I sanded and painted the wood with a nice rainy blue color. I used Perfect Paper Adhesive to adhere my paper to the project. This product is awesome. No wrinkles no bubbles (it can be found at Michaels). The Sentiment is computer generated and I added a Prima flower and rhinestone to the center. Ribbon and other rhinestones were added all around the box itself. Here are pictures of the inside and out. I'm not sure you can see it in the picture but I added Stickles to the umbrella, jacket and boots in yellow.
What the box looks like open...
Plenty of room for your spending money, your credit cards, and any other items needing to be stashed for a Rainy Day :)
Have a great day and thanks for the visit!!!

The email was titled KIDS:
So, there I was . . . just relaxing
in front of the TV, and then the kids yelled from the back yard, 'Hey, come see the kittens..'
ROFLBO!!! Is that not the most hysterical of all things. I could see my nieces and nephews doing this!!!! So make sure your kids know that kittens usually don't look like this!!! TOO FUNNY and CUTE....LOL :)
I will be taking a lil break from creating :) Just a day or two of no cards, nothing major. I will still be here reading blogs and so forth, just no new card work again til Saturday. I know ...some of you must just drop thinking about how crazy that sounds, or how crazy I am for saying it lol, but we all need a lil tiny break here and there. I actually have been under the weather, with things getting better ...than worse, than better. I figured a lil R&R couldn't hurt. It's hard to walk away from the stamp desk, but I think it will prove to be a positive thing! Only for a day or two - I promise!
I have a few auto posts set up for today and tomorrow. Just a few things I wanted to share since I won't have new cards to post just yet.
If your not familiar with there blogs, please visit them, you won't regret it. These ladies have awesome mad talent. Each person getting this award deserves it. I wanted to pass this special Karma Award on to them becasue there sweetness has won me over and they all got awesome Karma!
April 29, 2009
My Mojo was suffering a lil tonight but I was still able to get this done amazingly enough lol. I used Sketch #15 from The Sweetest Thing for this and tried to stay true to the sketch.
April 28, 2009
I did this for last weeks SCS Sketch Challange - SC225. I sponged the sky and clouds..which is my first time doing that and I'm pleased how it turned out. It's hard to see in the photo but I used yellow stickles on all the lights. The sentiment is computer generated and I colored the image using Prismacolor pencils and OMS. I finally got to use a key charm that I just recently got. My boyfriend Kelly bought it for me. He's always helping out my card making where he can. He shows up with crafting supplies - Gotta love him!!! I'm spoiled *big grin* Plus you should have seen him smile when he saw I used it...that was the best! I thought the key added to the sentiment perfectly. I also added prima flowers and some dew drops to finish it off. I'm pleased with the over all finish and I hope you likz it too.
Thanks for stoping by and have a great Day :)
HUGZ- Dee :)
I used a Dustin Pike image for this. I just couldn't resist this adorable Super Dragon. He's to stinkin cute. I colored him using Prismacolor Pencils and OMS. I used superman colors too..red, blue and yellow. I have to say this was SO MUCH fun to make. I got ink dyes all over me, my clothes, my fingers and I think even the cat lol - but it was a blast.
Thanks for looking and hope you have a wonderful day!
April 27, 2009
Now for some News. Dustin Pike has a bunch more new digi stamps up again (as of Friday)!!!! I'm a bit behind but catching up fast lol. I LOVE Dustin's work. If you haven't seen it yet, take a swing by his BLOG. The man is a genuis, and has some awesome new and fresh images. They are adorbale and a must see!
For those of you that are still anti-Digi Stamp, (as I once started), he offers free images every Wednesday. Take a look threw his blog history and download one and give it a shot. How can you argue with FREE :) I myself never thought I would like them, and now I'm hooked lol. I will eventually have all his images at one point or another. Also if your STILL against them - he has a rubber stamp line coming out soon which is AWESOME news. Hopefully I will have some new cards up soon in the next day or two using one of his images now that I'm on the comeback trail :)
Also he announces his new DT on May 3rd. The deadline to apply is the 30th (so you still have time). Talk about anxious and excited??!!! I did apply and I'm crossing my fingers (a lot) on this one lol. I can't imagine how cool it would be to be on his Design team, (considering they are my fav Digi's). Well I will be sure to report back here when he decides. If you can and it's not too much to ask for, please send some extra special lucky wishes this way :)
Happy Monday all!

I promised a sneek peek and here is one of the image they will be realeasing today
Details on Recipe Box: I created this recipe box using a template I found Here at Rainy Day Creations. All the details on how to make this box are listed there. I colored the image using Primacolor Pencils and OMS. The box holds 4x6 Recipe cards. I used Shrinky Dinks made for digital images to make the Oil tag. I just ran the shrinky dink material threw my printer and then colored the image with my copics. This project was a blast to make. The template was so simple and I scored and had it cut in just minutes.
The great thing about this box is it is very functional. When you are ready to use a recipe just clip your card to the front of the box and you are ready to go!
Thanks for stoping by and make sure you check out the other creations made by the other Sugara of Modern Sugar Blvd. All the DT Sugars are listed on my right sidebar. Thank you for stoping by and visiting!

He is such a cute Dragon all bandaged up hehehehe. I ran the tan CS threw my cuttlebug with Swiss Dots to make it look like a bandade :)
The charms that are hanging say 'GET WELL' and I took a close up pic so maybe you can see it better
I really enjoyed making this card. Hope you likes! Thanks Dustin for the wonderful images!
