back once again

Sorry for yet another 5 day hiatus from my blog!  Bad bad me!  This time i couldnt find my camera charger!  ARGH!  If it's not one thing, it's another, right?  Well, now i actually do have some fun things planned for you!  So i'm hoping my old mojo returns with it!  I've also decided to start up a new blog for makeup things.  So far it just has one of my older tutorials from makeup monday on it (the 3 minute makeup).

Here's my question to you... would you prefer to have things like tutorials only posted on the makeup blog... or did you like the makeup monday that i used to have on here?  Suggestions and feedback are always welcome!!!!

Here's my card for you today....

I made this card for my sister.  She is the ULTIMATE dog lover!  She has 2 furbabies of her own.  And in fact, this fairy is named after her!  It's the MeMe fairy which is what my kids call her (Aunt MeMe) though her name is actually Michelle.  :)  My sister also loves sunflowers!  She even has a sunflower tattoo so after some somewhat lengthy searching for a good sunflower stamp with my friend, Rachel I picked up a set of flowers and things by Recollections from Michael's.    It has a few different flowers and a lady bug and butterfly in the set and the style of the drawings really go well with the fairy style of PMS so I was very happy to pick it up!

I haphazardly stamped the sunflower on a piece of white cardstock and colored them in with copic markers.

I had a hard time deciding what sentiment to use and then i remembered i had this fun stamp from stampabilities.  So i stamped it and then mounted it on top of a flower.  Then i suddenly panicked that i dont actually speak spanish and wasnt sure if Te Amo was appropriate for a card for my sister.  So i called up my spanish speaking Amigo (rachel again, hehe) and she said it would be ok.  that is meant "SUPER affection" so as long as i reeeeeally love my sister, it would be ok.  haha.  Well, my sister is the bomb (wow, i'm dating myself, huh) so i decided to keep it. :)

Ok... onto the more specific and less to read deets...
