I had to try Sally Hansen's Magnetic Nails!
The color I tried was Kinetic Copper.
Some nails I tried twice and put a thicker coat on to get the magnetic part to work. I think it might work on flatter nails a little better. I got some neat results!

So if you wanna play this is fun! I think I want to either try the blue or maybe red next!

It costs about $8.50 at Walmart.

Sneak Peek

Ok I started this canvas over a week ago..been sick so now I'm trying to get back to it.

Let's just say its definitely out of my comfort zone but I'm learning about stuff so.. here's a sneak peek of what is done so far...

It just made my day to receive Kathy's ATC.

I just love it.

I took lots of pictures so you can enjoy it too!

I'm gonna have to get me a tray AND OF COURSE DECORATE IT to put all my new upcoming ATC'S!

here we go:


had to show you all views

close ups of all her work! aren't those star's darling

I'm a bling lover!

Can you see her stickles... and isn't that owl freaking creeping you out!

Do you recognize the movie she could be referencing?
I of course had to take the picture on top of my latest book I read... HAVEN by KAY HOOPER!

The Bishop series is fantastic!

I love this so much.
Thank you Kathy!


Well over at Scraps of Darkness we are trying something new!

Now I did this tag over 2 weeks ago. I've been ill and am still recuperating. However I'm feeling well enough to update my blog!

We are exchanging ATC's for the fun of it! Seriously I was wondering.. how will I fit anything on that dinky small space... but I did. I've included lots of photos so you can see some of the process. I played with chalk inks and my 3rd EYE STAMPS... It turned out to be a whole lot of fun! I also already miss it. I wonder if I need to make double. haha I also took some pics of it indoors and outdoors and so some might seem like duplicates but I am trying to make sure the color comes thru. It is a very colorful card. I also just love closeups! That Tim Holtz button is just gorgeous! Ok be prepared for lots of shots of my first ATC. I was so excited to get Ms. Kathy in Alaska. She is just wonderful! I hope she enjoys the card as much as I enjoyed making it.
an INDOOR VIEW... also first time to use my TAG MAKER! WAY COOL EASY

All inked up with Chalk Inks.. some Melissa Frances rubons..

Trying to use PUFFY PAINT on Washi Tape with my 3RD EYE STAMPS.. wasn't working so well.

Modeling paste working properly finally!


a different angle

popped up can you see the different WASHI TAPES?

upside down... some song in my head

Outdoors but not so vibrant
