FWF: It's A Little Different

I am SUPER excited today because I am taking my boys to the CIRCUS!!!! I can't wait for them to see the animals and watch the show!!! We try to set aside time every month to do something extra special with the boys. Sometimes it's the park, sometimes a movie... I hope in the grand scheme of things that it will keep us close during those quickly approaching teen years. :)
For my FWF, I decided to shack things up a bit. I was talking to a friend and she said she wanted to buy a Copic marker to see what the fuss was about so I decided to show her. I did NOT use Copics though (they are out of my price range). I used Prismacolor markers which are on sell at Jerry's Artaroma right now for $1.99 each!!
In my first example I used my Marvy paint pens which I love. I use them with my stamps A LOT!

You can see my lines and ordinarily I would NEVER color the background with these, but I was trying to make a point. :)

In this one I used my Prismacolor markers. You can clearly see that the lines are not as noticeable.




And here is my finished card using the Prismacolor markers.


I am in NO way an expert at this. There are TONS of tutorials out there that you can read, but I learn more when I just sit and play. :)
Hope you have a WONDERFUL weekend!!

This stamp is from the Go Ahead... Wish kit.

A Little Sunshiney FWFF

What a week! We got snow AGAIN!!! I HATE snow, but this snow was perfect!! 4 inches, gone by afternoon, none on the roads, and no school closings! If we lose anymore school days we have to make them up at Easter break :( !
See my guys.

And my Mom with Baby.

So much fun, but I am definitely ready for some sunshine!!

And some fishing!
There is so much more I want to share with you, but I have to save it for now.

Have a WONDERFUL weekend!!!





All stamps are Unity

It's a Valentiney Friends With Flair!!

Valentiney is not even a word,but I thought it was cute! :) In honor of Valentines, I'm going to share a few things I LOVE.
I LOVE this man!
We all LOVE these pups!!
(they don't stay in the house, btw. and they are for sale to a GREAT home)
I LOVE these boys!! They light up my life! They keep me on my toes and they are the funniest little things I've ever seen!!

I LOVE this card (although the lighting is awful and I only noticed that NOW!! Sorry!)

I LOVE that every spring the boys I LOVE the most set out to find crawl fish and then go fishing together. No Mom's allowed. It is strictly male bonding time. Isn't that cool!!!


And I LOVE comments from all my bloggy peeps!!
HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY!!!!!!!!

Happy Birthday and Lots Of Love

I have a card today that I did for my MIL's birthday. I LOVE this stamp from Unity!!!

And this layout I did of my Daddy. I LOVE him so much!! He's really changed over the years, but he's still so special to me!
His health is fading and his spirit is fading with it. I hate to see it! It really breaks my heart.

Thanks for LOOKING!!!!!!!
