Mom’s Away …

She is away at a Girl’s Weekend Retreat – Stamping, Scrapbooking, Lots of creative new friends and she left me at home! She spent some time doing her 2nd Tilda card.

First she was going to mask, then she decided to cut out and color. I’m not sure what either of those things mean, but I think the card is pretty. Mom’s says we are going to use it for a birthday card.

Mom will post the colors later (she tells me she can edit this post). She colors on a piece of scrap to help her decide what colors to use.


Hope you like the card.


Thanks for stopping by, Mom will read me your comments when she comes home.

Happy Birthday Card

Mom has been a bit distracted over the last couple of days, but this morning she went up to her studio and completed a simple easel card.

The pattern paper is from Chatterbox, which was from her stash. I am really proud of her for using paper from her stash as opposed to running to the store to buy more. Although, that would have meant a ride in the car for me – what was I thinking!

The butterflies were the punch outs from the Martha Stewart border punch from another project. The Nestabilities is Label Eleven

HB_Tilda_2Here is a picture of the card open. The HB stamp is from Print Works.

Mom’s First Tilda …

Mom finally has shown me her first Tilda – I have to say she is really cute. Her name is Happy Tilda from the Raising the Ceiling Collection (sorry she is out of stock at the moment).


Mom picked the following Copics for her:
Skin: E00, E02, R11;
Outfit: B93, B95, B97, R32;
Socks: B00 (for the white effect);
Hair; E33, E31.
Highlights Sharpie Extra Fine White pen;
Paper: Neenah

Mom doesn’t look totally satisfied – she says she needs to get better with highlights.

I was a little camera shy this am and didn’t want Mom taking my picture.


Thanks for stopping by!

Blog Candy

My Mom spent a little time surfing this morning (not sure what surfing is, but Mom seems to like it!). She was excited to find something called ‘blog candy’.  Mom says you have to check out the Blog Candy over at Paper Hugs with Di.  Diane does some wonderful work for sure. Pop on by if you have the time.

My name is Missy and I’m Mom’s Helper…

but I’m not very good with sharp implements and because I don’t have a thumb, it is very hard to hold the paper, pick up buttons and add glue dots!

But I’m am really good at letting Mom know when there is someone at the front door


Mom has a nice bed for me upstairs in her Studio, but I prefer to stay downstairs guarding the house.


It is very hard work! I get very sleepy …. and need a nap!

Please drop by often to check up on me and of course to check out some of my Mom’s crafty work! I understand she received some wonderful Magnolia stamps, but I will keep which ones a secret. She is stamping and coloring today.
