Hey girls!!

Time for theMFT Blog Hop!

If you *just* got here check in with KIM first-

If you are hopping along, next you will want to head on over to Michele

I got some stamp time in AND got some videos done 😀 I am trying to get ahead, so if you see me in the SAME outfit just know that YES, I do own other clothes! LOL! I just filmed a few on the same day.

 This time was definitely EASIER! So YEAH!! I’m getting the hang of this now. Now don’t go getting HIGH standards 😀 I just feel I improve each time. I’d LOVE to offer MORE videos each week, so someday it MAY be possible.

I was so inspired by the newest release from MFT called Tea for Two that it inspired my project for today! I hope you like it.

Time for Tea


Today’s video I have to share with you will show you how to take the My Timeless Template-For Keep{sake} and turn it into a PRETTY tea holder, that can be proudly displayed anywhere!

If you want a chance to WIN -just leave me a comment 😀 and if you want to, tell us What drink or item/activity comforts you when you are upset, or sick, had a bad day…….

I LOVE my coffee ♥

OK more photos……..

Top view of the tea in the For Keep{sake} (turned tea) holder.


Here is a close up detail of the ADORABLE little bunnies in the tea cup!


The cup is colored and cut out.

I made the bunnies in the cup 3D as well. The tail is on an additional layer, and had fun flock on it.

Now here is a close up view of the slot that I teach you to easily make, and convert your For Keep{Sake} template into the Tea Box!


Now also note, that you can die cut a scallop square from the large set of square nestablities to give you a nice decorative bottom to your holder 😀

The paper is an OLD SU! pattern. The cardstock I believe is Cranberry Crisp-with the matching ribbon (also SU! but retired).

I just loved how quick and simple this project is 😀 It would be a great treat for someone!

OK now onto the release stuff.

OK I have lots of loose ends to tie up. My brother’s baby is due ANY day, so I’m “on call”! LOL!


Off to school

Feb 3, 2009 Author: mytime | Filed under: Uncategorized


I LOVE this card 😀

It was made before my mojo went on the fritz! LOL!

The colors are just so cheery to me. Perfect teacher of back to school card.

I am praying for a day of “quiet” while the kids are ALL in school and back to perfect health, so I can get some MOMMY time. Lately I’ve either been ill or running everywhere in creation for everyone.

I know it sounds “selfish” but we ALL need to do something for ourselves. I’m a firm believer in that. When mom is stressed then it takes a toll on everyone!

My motto is “Do something to make yourself happy-everyday!”

Sometimes that is just impossible. I am determined to get ONE day this week to get done everything I need to.

OK onto the card


Creating a “scene” was super easy because I used the elements in 3 Lizzie Anne Designs stamp sets Winter Release with some masking-

The bus/sentiment-Things that go

House and tree-Welcome Home

Girl/books-School Days

I then just drew on my “street” and made some grass. Sponged a sky-and was done!

OK now I need to run. Lots of running around to do.

Thanks for stopping by. Tomorrow I WILL have a video for the MFT Blog Hop!

Till then

Fairpoint problem

Feb 3, 2009 Author: mytime | Filed under: Uncategorized

OH boy! Just what I need!!

I cannot send email :C

I thought it was just me, but saw a news report that the Fairpoint takeover of Verizon did NOT go as planned, and many of the customers are experiencing email issues :C

Myself included.

So I will not be able to send anything till this is cleared up. I could just scream right now-you have no idea! LOL!

So if anyone needs to get in touch with me please know I can READ your email but cannot respond back

I guess contact me through www.splitcoaststampers.commy user name is mytime

Or if you belong to a member company of any of the design teams I am on usually there is email through that message board.

This is not my week
