Light Problems

Hi Friends!

Man oh man I have been having some serious problems taking pictures of my cards! This one looks horrible but it was the best one out of 25!!!!! Hoping to play more with my camera soon so I can see what's going on.

I used Gina K's OUT WEST stamp set for this card....which I just gave back to Cindy WAAAAHHH BUT hoping to buy VERY soon!!!!

The designer paper is one that I bought from my shopping trip a few weeks ago. It just screams Cowboys!!!! I colored my image with my copics and the card sketch was over on Gina K's stampTV!

Last night we went to see AC/DC with Zakary and it was so much fun!!!! He had a GREAT time, I am so excited that we could do this for him!!!!

Well off to go get Little Z at my moms!

Enjoy doing whatever you love most!

I had such a beautiful image of this card in my head and "THIS" is what came out. So not what I wasthinking about. I made this for my grandmother's birthday.

I used a sketch from SCS and used Gina K stamps. I then added black chunky glitter to the center of the flowers. BIG MISTAKE!!!! I was so upset after doing this and Zakary was working on a project next to me....he said Kylah I really like the glitter and I think Mum will you made it that will make her love it. That really touched me....I have been trying to make him understand how important handmade gifts are and how they are made with so much LOVE....I think he is getting it!!!!!!

Well I am off to watch a little TV before heading to bed! I hope you all have so much fun doing what you LOVE!

Chillin Birthday

What a wonderful Saturday!!!! It started off a little rainy, but Chris and I had high hopes so we pack up the kids and drove to the beach over in Sunapee, NH. We are so happy we did because the day was BEAUTIFUL!!! They had so much fun playing in the sand and swimming in the COLD water!!!!! I even got in!!! We picked Sunapee because I use to go there when I was much younger and we really like bringing the kids to places we use to go when we were their age ;o)

We left the beach and came home to get ready for a good friend Corey's birthday dinner at a local restaurant. You know me that meant I had not made the card yet....I grabbed berrafella stamp from Bella and a few Copics and this is what I came up with. So sorry about the phot...I took it in the car (on the way to dinner) on my skirt haha!!!! We had a yummy dinner and an enjoyable time visiting with our friends!

Well I am off to sit with Chris...I think he needs a little aloe on his back...not enough sunscreen today....

Have a wonderful rest of your weekend I know we will!!!!!! Thank you so much for stopping by I love seeing all the new people that have been commenting it means so much!!!! Always brightens my day!

Hoppy Birthday to You!

Hi Stampin Friends!

What a wonderful day I had today!!!! I spent most of the day working with Eleanor and then came home to all 3 of my boyZ! We had a fun afternoon in the backyard with the pool and water guns! Tonight I started a new "training" program with my friend Cindy (you may have heard of her one happy stamper ;o) ) We are starting walking/running intervals and tonight we hit the cemetery. We had a GREAT workout and I feel wonderful! I am so excited to do it again on Sunday!

I am also so excited about this card!!! I won Lauren Meaders contest a few weeks ago and my prize came in the mail from Pink Cat Studio the other day! I couldn't wait to ink up Billy! This image with the frog on his head is just so cute!!!! I used the sketch from Mojo Monday paired with some new designer paper from my shopping trip last week! I colored Billy with my copics ;o)

Speaking of my trip I forgot to mention that I met a great Blogger!!!!! Donna-Marie ROCKS! She works at Wholly Scaps in North Hampton, NH. This was our last stop on our shopping trip and the store was GREAT!!! Donna-Marie really knows her stuff!!!! Check out her blog and make sure you say HI!!!!!!

Lots to do tonight! I have a workshop tomorrow evening....maybe I should figure out what we are doing ;o) Have a wonderful night!

Grateful for Family

Hi Stamping Friends!

Oh my goodness where does time go? So much has been going on here at the Lent/Marro household these days. I love planning little outings with t he boyZ or just playing outside in the back yard. We bought a little $10.00 blow up pool (which I had to blow up with all my own air because Chris was at work, with the pump in his car, and Zain WANTED to swim!). We have been enjoying the pool and the SUN. I am soooo grateful for all the family time we have been able to have this summer! I LOVE that Zakary is with us this summer!

I made this card LAST month for my SU Club swap. I needed a quick card and one that I could mass produce very quickly! I wanted to use new IN colors! I used my Stampamagig so everything lined up very well! It is a bright card which I LOVE! I also used my SU textured plates in the Big Shot. I bought them 6 months ago and this is the first time I have used them BUT I had to have them LOL!

I hope you all have fun doing whatever it is that makes you HAPPY!!!!

Cowgirl Birthday Wishes

Hi Stamping Friends!!!

Her I go again playing with the wonderful Weiman Wrangler digi stamp images from Pink Cat Studios! The DSP I used is some very old SU paper I had in my stash. I colored the horseshoe and put some stickles all over it. I love my bling!!! I also put some crystal effect on the balloon. My image is colored with COPICS!

Whew I have been so busy! I hope everyone had a great holiday weekend! I know I did! Friday the fireworks were here in Keene, we took the boyZ to watch but they were set off so late (10:30ish) and Zakary was not that into it. He was so tired! Zain on the other hand was screaming BOOM BOOM LOUD BOOM he LOVED them!!!!
Saturday we went to my great uncles 80th birthday party and then went back to my parents for more fireworks. My dad sets some off at the top of our road and again Zain LOVED it! He kept clapping and screaming YAAAA PAPA!!!! Zakary had a nice time with my cousin Sydney. They were up to no good ;o)

Today was such a beautiful day, NO RAIN!!!!! We stayed at home most of the day. Chris had to work so the boyZ and I played outside and had a picnic! AHHH it was so wonderful!

Tomorrow I am off shopping to different scrapbook and stamping stores :) No stamping till Tuesday night...I have not touched a stamp in a few days...I am starting to shake! HAHA

I hope you all have a wonderful week!!!
