Tickled Pink Stamps Challenge #53

HALLO my PINK Fans!! 
So glad you have stopped by today! This post is sooooooooooooo late! I'm sooooooooo sorry for that but alot of my blogging has been taking a backseat lately! In fact, it has gotten to the point where hubby had to point out the fact that I practically live on the computer, thus the decision to step down from the Tickled Pink Dream Team! Uh...how this breaks my heart into a bazillion pieces, cuz Kellie is 'da bomb' & I love her to pieces, as well as loving all the gorgeous images & stamps she creates! Not to mention the AMAZING PINK LADIES who inspire me daily! And will continue to inspire me as I watch their blogs  on my dashboard! Perhaps I'll actually be able to say a happy hello now! LOL 

On that note: the challenge at the Tickled Pink Stamps Challenge blog this week is 


((and it is currently underway!! ))

Remember you must use an image/stamp from the Tickled Pink Stamp Ranges which are available at the Tickled Pink Stamps Store. The digi I used today is Lil Greek Gods Lolita Aphrodite Willow! I wasn't sure what to do with her, then I remembered some of these  "nouveau greek chic" papers that I thought would suit her just fine! 
I placed a chipboard birdcage and wings on my card, after painting them with distress paint and sponging them to death! LOL My sentiment is from JUSTWORDZ and ribbon is from Really Reasonable Ribbons. Tim Holtz filmstrip and wee golden butterfly I got from Micheals. I added a bit of stickles to her cape & liquid pearls to the wings & cage! 
I am suuuuuuuper please with how this came together! 

Thanks for stopping by today!! 

Challenges for my card:
Crafty Catz- things with wings
Card Making Mamas- something old- butterfly & chipboard birdcage! 
Stamp, Scrap & Doodle- anything goes
Craft Your Days Away- distressing
Fab'n'Funky- photo inspiration - It's all in the eyes

Some Odd Cuppycakes & Colors

Can you believe this is my last DT creation for SOME ODD GIRL!!! 
Can you believe that I will no longer be ODD?!?!
OK OK, I know your thinking, "You're Odd all the time"......OK you got me! 
I'm a bit ODD......but no longer a SOME ODD GIRL!! 
I will definitely miss my time with Kristy and the team. What a great bunch of people to work with. Helpful, friendly, easy to get along with, "play nice with others". lol 
Kristy is an amazing boss, artist & friend. She is super generous and talented! I'm so glad to have had the pleasure of working with her stuff. Launching the Nouveau Line was so exciting and can't wait to see more of those beauties in  the future! I also hope to be ODD in the future again! Til then, it is time to pass on the reigns to others so they  too can be ODD!! 

This weeks Challenge at Some Odd Girl is a photo/color inspiration: see below

And here is my take. I have used a couple of the new "Shush" birthday clear stamp sets called Baker Mae (that's this little beauty & the sentiment) & Cupcake Mae, which is the background paper.....YES, it is NOT DP......I made this design myself with the cupcake from the set! Both of these sets are available at the Some Odd Girl Store !! You must check them out! 

This card will be posted to my online galleries: 

Challenges for my card: 

Marks Finest Papers- birthday card
Birthday Sundaes- sentiment on the front
I {heart} to sketch- january ( I flipped it upside down)

My life is changing & so can yours!

So many of you have been wondering, what is she up to? Where has she been?
 I wondered.....myself....where I've been sometimes, whether I'm coming or going?!
 I feel like I'm chasing my backside!
 But honestly, if feels great to be busy.
To be motivated.

This is my latest business venture.
Skincerity by NuCerity International.
"An advancement in anti-aging cosmetic technology"

I was introduced to this by a friend from nursing school.
 I saw on FB that she was using this on her baby's bottom for what seemed like incurable Eczema.
After 1 night with Skincerity, it was 80% better.
I was sold. 
I bought some. 
Tried it, loved it. 
Bought into the business and SOLD again.
Network Marketing of a product that literally sells itself. 

What you must understand is that I do not enter into these things lightly
When I bought into the business, I was working out of town doing that "Agency Nursing" stuff I mentioned before in previous posts, soooooooooo, when I told hubby what I did, he was SHOCKED! You see, we live very humbly....paycheck to paycheck.....so an investment of one of those paychecks can cause a ripple in the best laid plans. PLUS.....I NEVER SELL STUFF....unless I'm 100% sure about it!

Then you know what happened. .....
He became my #1 supporter.
Started researching it.
Started using it.
Started getting as excited as I was. 
As of today I am a bit richer, personally and financially because of it and I could not be happier. 


It makes me happy to see lives changing by a product that ACTUALLY works. 
A natural product. 
A product that is multiplying by leaps & bounds across this country.....and maybe your country is next! 

[[Currently, NuCerity International has distributors in Canada, USA, Hawaii, Austrailia, Mexico, Phillipines, Taiwan, Hong Kong, South Korea, Singapore & Japan..........
This line has literally "taken off" in our neighboring Province of Saskatchewan and we here in Manitoba are rising to the top too!!  ]]


Why does Skincerity work?
Skincerity is the only patented product (patented 4 times I might add) that forms a breathable barrier once applied to your skin. It helps to seal in your skins natural moisture thereby enhancing your skins appearance with the natural ingredients  of grape seed oil & Vitamin E

And the BEST PART is that is a once a day treatment.
Apply before bed.
 Flash dries in seconds and wash off in the morning.

It is not just for your face though, it is good for any area of our body where you want to get results. (see the picture at the top, it tells ya what it's good for! )

Oh my goodness. I could go on and on about this product like:
1. It is one of a kind- no other breathable barriers on the market. Patented 4 times over. No one is re-creating this one! 
2. The founders of the company have multiple multi-million dollar companies between them (including {and this is what got me} SLICK50- something for your engine that prevents it from rusting.....my husband knew exactly what this was when I told him).
3. They have Doctors & Dermatologists testing & selling the product to enhance skin treatments
4. Numerous clinical & cosmetic benefits (see chart above)
5. Financial benefits
....the list goes on & on.

**For more information on this product you can check out the following links:**

=my website @ http://mynucerity.com/corrysmyrski/ (start ordering from there at the preferred customer rate) 
http://www.nucerityu.com/ for more of a business perspective.

This business is great for stay at home parents, individuals who work from home, part time workers who are looking for some extra income, fitness fanatics, naturalists, or basically anyone who want to make a change in someone else's life; which is wthin each & every one of us!

Now I also have a FB page dedicated to personal jouneys with Skincerity sales to customers who have graciously donated their problem areas with me to share with the world.
There are great results so far!
Check that out HERE.

-->My personal story is the fact that I've been using this product now for about 3 weeks....all over my face....and yesterday I really looked at my skin and realized it is much softer & smoother! So I'm pleased! <-- 
*My daughter used it on a pimple and it was practically gone in two days.*

 I will leave you with a few photos from actual NuCerity customers:
And a link to a video!

California Dreamin'

I have a VERY new and VERY exciting little fairy to introduce you to. She made her way into the Prairie Fairy Designs family last week and as soon as Roberta made her available to me, I colored her up and made this card. OMG! Isn't she lovely! I could just squish her cheeks and pudgy nose! 

This is my midweek reminder for the Fairy Fun Friday Challenge California Dreamin'. I must admit, she is totally dreamy to me! This is Fairy Aayliah and she comes in a set at the Prairie Fairy Designs store. One image is her holding a heart and this is the other image! KA-YOOT I know! 
The large butterfly I got from Bunny Zoes with Bettina's gift certificate I won with her candy draw. The flower & pin accessories are from Chelsea's candy I won a while ago. It has been hiding from me! LOL The frame around my fairy is a sticker from CTMH. The wee words in the bottom corner are stickers as well. Oh and my butterfly punch came in handy to add some flair to my card! 

Now for a few close up shots! 

Thanks so much for stopping by today! 

Challenges for my card: 
Flutterby Wednesdays- open
Cooking it up with Katie- pink, pearls & posies
Crafts & Me- use pins
CLP Challenge- sketch (see below)

Let's Ink It Up- January

For the month of Januay we are challenging you to an ANYTHING GOES theme . 
That's right! ANYTHING! 
JUST REMEMBER: You must use rubber stamps here at Let's Ink It Up! 
No digis allowed. At all. Period! 

Our sponsor for this month is Scor Pal who is offering up a Scor-Buddy & mat to the winna! 



This time I have chosen to highlight a sentiment. This stamp set is from CTMH (the name escapes me right now). It includes the flowers, centers & a couple sentiments. To get the different shades of flowers, I just kept stamping it over and over til all the color was off the stamp, then I moved onto a different color with a different stamp & did the same thing.  I covered almost a complete 8.5"X11" sheet of white cardstock, then I just cut off the area I wanted & placed it on my scallop nestie. Then I stamped the sentiment with Memento Black Ink. A few different ribbons and VOILA! No coloring, CAS creation! 

Thanks so much for stopping by today.
And I hope to see you at the Let's Ink It Up challenge this month! 

Challenges for my card
CAS-ual Fridays- scallops
Challenge up your Life- BINGO (ribbon, buttons, die cuts)
Drunken Stampers- love
One Stop Craft- on the spot & ribbon
