You can see Jen's sketch and her card on iheart2stamp.com
Oh yeah, I wanted to tell you about the heart cut out. My cuttlebug friend( Deneise ) told me about this technique. You can brayer your embossing folder, then use it like you normally would. The ink will only transfer to the embossed shape. The rest of the paper will be white, or what ever color you use. Then I just cut the heart out with my scissors. Cool huh?
The next card is also made with Bella Flor Paper. I had so much fun making this card. My friend let me borrow her Cuttlebug Embossing folders. They are so much fun! I don't know the names of these folder. Can you beleive the company does not label their folder? I sure with they would.
Anyway, This Bella stamp is called Cuppacakeabella. I love their names! LOL
I used liquid applique and glitter on the cupcake along with a Bella Bauble for the cherry on top. Too stinkin cute! I made this card to give to my grandmother for her birthday next Saturday. She will be 75 and acts like the girl on the cupcake. I hope I look and act as good as Granny when I am 75!
Hope you enjoy my cards!

I made this card for my friend Nancy. Her father past away last night. I used the gate fold cards that I ordered from Stampin Bella. I used the Cuttle Bug Paisley embossing folder for the flaps. The colors are lilac mist and sweet leaf. The stamp set is SU's Always. I think it turned out pretty. I love this bird.

Anyway, These are pics of my silly family! Shelby is the one on top. This is his Zoolander look.
This is Caleb before we waxed his unabrow!
And this is the kids on the first day of school. Oh, It's going to be a long year!
This last one is Daniel. He is best friends with the boys. Why all the cool hair dos? I told them I didn't like their hair in their eyes and they all needed a hair cut. Well, they didn't want hair cuts, but they did let me get their bangs out of their eyes. Then, I went around the table waxing eyebrows and hairy facial moles! OOg. I love these boys. They are so much fun!
Card #2 I'm not really crazy about. Just couldn't get it to come together. However, it is CTMH's Stamp Of the Month and chocolate, lilac mist and sweet leaf paper.
This last one, I used Stampin Up's Always set. I really like the look of this stamp set. The colors are chocolate, sweet leaf and lilac mist again. These are CTMH colors.

Brekyn did very well with her goat las weekend. She placed first in her class. I have four rolls of film I need to develop. I will post some pics of the kids when I have them developed.
The above card is from Jen Del Muro's (iheart2scrap.com) Saturday Challenge. We were sopose to use Bellas, but I didn't have any soooo, I got on line and ordered me a few!! LOL I still wanted to try the sketch, so I just used CTMH "just because" stamps with the "Perfect Day" paper. I hope you like it. :)
From Left: Shelby, My dad~John, My Mom~Margaret, Bates, Me, My DH~ Roe, Brekyn and my very handsome brother~ Billy Bob Bates! He just goes by Billy these days. This is a picture of my family last Christmas. I really like it. Don't I have cute kids! I hope to have a professional pic taken soon before all the foliage dies this winter.
Enjoy looking...leave a comment:) Johna

Brekyn is showing one of her goats today in the county fair. I hope she does well. Brek and Bates took all the prizes with their chickens. Very exciting! Everyone wants to know what we have been feeding them. Ummmm... Dog food and bugs! LOL They are out on the farm, and fend for themselves in the trees. I also suspect they eat alot of goat poop. Ewww
Bates isn't smiling. He has a very curious rash all over his torso and some on his legs. Gave him some Benadryl and he slept about 4 hours!! That's about how long it took me to make this card:( I just couldn't get it to come together. I hope you like it. Enjoy! Johna
