Season's Greeting

Hello Ladies! I'm still having scanner problems. My pictures are so awful. I just can't take a decent picture. They just keep coming out so blurry.
Well anyways, today's cards were quick cards I made with the Tree Trimming stamp set. I love this little set. I started making one and it didn't turn out like I wanted so I made another similiar one. I like the way they turned out. Have a great weekend.

I'm Back!

Hello Ladies! Happy Monday. I have been MIA for a couple of weeks. I have been sick and my scanner isn't working. I have to catch up on some visiting everyone's blogs.

Today I made a card using one of my retired sets A Little Someone. There are about 5 pregnant teachers at my school. So I need to get started on some baby cards! Sorry for the blurry picture, but I just couldn't get it right. I should have my scanner back by the end of the week hopefully. Have a wonderful rest of the day.

Happy Tuesday!

Hello Ladies. Happy Tuesday. I had a great long weekend. I got time to just lay around and catch up on shows I haven't watched in a long time. I also got a chance to make a couple of cards. This one is made from another one of my all time favorite holiday sets Solemn Stillness (retired). I LOVE this set. Have a great day!

Be Merry

Hello Ladies. Happy Saturday! I'm so excited that I have a 4 day weekend. I can catch up on some much needed stamping time. I made this card this morning. I'm still not sure which cards I want to do for my up coming Christmas card class. This may be one of them. It's simple but cute. Well, have a great day and happy stamping!!

Thankful Thoughts

Hello Ladies. Happy Sunday. I haven't posted in a few days so I thought I'd put something up today. This isn't a new card. I made this one last year for a fellow teacher to send to her family back home. I can't remember where I saw the layout for this card. Have a great rest of the day.

Thank You Card

Hello Ladies. Happy Wednesday! I have been so busy lately that I haven't posted anything. I made this card today when I came home from work. I just love these colors together. I wish I would have done the bigger flowers, but I still like the way it turned out. Have a great rest of the day.

Asian Artistry

Hello Ladies. Happy Friday! This card is made from the Level 2 Hostess set Asian Artistry. I love the images in this stamp set. I wanted to try this color combo as well. I used Ruby Red, Cameo Coral, Gardern Green and Chocolate Chip. I colored the flowere with the Ruby Red and Garden Green Markers. I used the Swiss Dots embossing folder with the Cameo Coral card stock and used my eyelet boarder punch with the Chocolate Chip card stock. Have a wonderful weekend!

Frankie & The Count Boxes

Hello Ladies. Happy Wednesday.
Here are a couple of the boxes I made. There was this tutorial from Tammy here on Dream, Create, and Share. She has some other cute tutorials as well. I don't have all the punches so I had to improvise. Well, I gotta go. Have a great day!

It's Frankie!

Hello Ladies. Happy Tuesday! The weather is horrible here in Atlanta. There is flooding and streets are closed all over. I didn't have school yesterday or today. I'm thankful my housed didn't get flooded like a lot of the others did.

Today I made this cute Frankie card. I saw some like it all over and decided to make one. This is my first attempt at a Halloween card. I also made these cute little boxes I saw on another blog. I'll post them soon with a link to the blog for the tutorial. Have a wonderful day!

Thinking of You

Hello Ladies! Happy Tuesday. I pre-posted this card today. I'm at school until 8:00 and would have no time to post today. You can't tell but I used the Texturz plate on the Barely Banana. I don't take great pictures, so I have to scan them in. I hope everyone is having a wonderful day. This card I've seen lots of different kind posted on SCS. I thought I'd try one. Isn't he cute?! I also wanted to use these card stocks I haven't used before. I think it looks nice. Have a terrific Tuesday!!

Hello Ladies! Happy Monday & Happy Labor Day. I'm off today as is a lot of you probably are too. I had a chance to make some cards. This is one of the creations I've made. I love, love, love this stamp set. It is my favorite. It makes some really beautiful cards.

Have a wonderful day. I need to "cherish" today since I have to be at school tomorrow for open house until 8:00 at night.

Heartfelt Sympathy

Hello Ladies. Happy Thursday. I'm so happy this weekend is almost here. We have a long weekend ahead of us too!!
This card is one I made with one of my favorite sets. Even though it's a "sympathy" set, the flowers can be used to make all different types of cards. I made a sympathy card because it seems that there was a big need for them at school so far this year. Sorry for the terrible picture. It was the only way I could get the texture to show. I'm not very good with this camera.
Well have a great weekend. I won't be posting tomorrow or this weekend. It's my birthday tomorrow. Hopefully my husband doesn't forget like he forgot our anniversary this past weekend.

Another Christmas Card

Hello Ladies. Happy Tuesday.
Yesterday I bought a couple of the Cuttlebug embossing folders. This one is the D'vine Swirl. I'm telling you, I get so many ideas from my upline. She use this folder on some of her cards and I had to get it. I'm thinking of doing a holiday SAS and I wanted to start designing some cards for it. This might be one of them. Have a wonderful day!

Happy Day

Hello Ladies! Happy Monday. This was a quick card I put together yesterday for my husband. It was our 12th anniversary. He totally forgot!! I didn't get too upset since this was the first time her ever forgot. Now I get to order whatever I want from SU!! Well gotta go place my order :)

It's Good to Dream

Hello Ladies. I'm so glad it's the weekend. Time to try and get some things done that's been put off since I've been back to work.

The card today is one that I made using my Big Shot & butterfly die. I should have added some texture to the butterflies, but they still are cute :) The wings on the butterflies aren't flat. I scanned the card so you can't see how they stand out. Have a great weekend!

Hello Ladies. Happy Wednesday. I am on a roll! I have posted something 3 days in a row. I guess I'm back in my routine now. Today's card I wanted to use my Circle Circus set which I haven't used in a long time. Dusty Durango was one of my least favorite of the new In Colors, but I think it make some nice Fall cards. Have a wonderful day!

Hello Ladies. Happy Tuesday! I wanted to do a card that had some fall colors in it. I used my Eastern Blooms stamp set for this card. I colored my flowers with Crushed Curry and Dusty Durango markers and colored the stem with Soft Suede.

This other picture I have is of my "new" puppy. I was puppy sitting for one of the teachers at work over the summer because she had to go home (New Zealand), for the summer and work. She thought she would be able to bring her puppy back with her but she wasn't able to. Now I have a puppy. She's great!! Now when I came home from work she misses me and wants to sit on my lap and look out of my window. Needless to say I can hardly get anything done. She so adorable I don't care.

My first Christmas card this year.

Hello Ladies. Happy Monday!I feel like I'm behind. I see a lot of post with Christmas cards. I thought I'd start on some too. I made this card using one of my favorite sets. I actually bought this set from the Holiday Mini last year because a customer contacted me and she wanted 35 cards made with this set. This is a set I would have never bought for myself but I love it! You can do so much with it. I saw a card similar to this one somewhere, but I don't remember now. Have a wonderful day!

Another Thinking of You Card

Hello Ladies. Happy Monday. I can't believe I actually had time to make a card and post today. Better late than never. My card is from the Thoughts & Prayers stamp set I borrowed. This is so simple but I love it. It is very fall. I used my Big Shot to texture the Dusty Durango paper. I don't know if you can see it that well. I think that is my favorite part of the card.

Praying for You...

Hello Ladies. I was terribly busy this week. School started and I have been exhausted. I have to get back into my routine. I have also been working on my niece's baby shower cards. She wanted 50, but now she only wants 25. I'll post a pic of them when they are all done.
This card I made using a borrowed set. I like to try before I buy! Most of the sets I have I borrowed from my upline Brenda, then I buy them if I like them. Thanks Brenda!! She is great. I also wanted to make a card using my Top Note die. I like the way it turned out. Have a great day!

School starts for us tomorrow, so I probably won't have many post a while. The first few weeks of school are hectic and I get wore out. Have a wonderful day!

3x3 Sweet Stems Card Set

Hello Ladies and Happy Monday. I haven't used my Tea Party DSP in a while so I wanted to make something with it. I chose to make this 3x3 card set. I made a box & 8 cards. I made 2 of each style. I haven't used this side of the paper with the bigger flowers. I think they look nice since the paper isn't that big. Well have a wonderful day.

Best Wishes

Hello Ladies and happy Friday!! Since I am just a hobby demo, this month I was PENDING!! No problem. I told my husband if I didn't order the $300 last quarter it would just cost HIM more the next time. So I put my order in today so I could keep getting this fabulous stuff for a discount. I ordered what I have been contemplating on getting for a long time. Yes ladies I finally ordered my BIG SHOT!! I think I might one of the last demos to get one LOL :) I even ordered it with the 2 day shipping. I am so excited!!

Well on to my card for today. I made this one while I was sitting around thinking of my Big Shot:) I haven't used Perfect Plum before, so I decided to try a card using it. I'm happy with how it came out. Have a wonderful weekend.

Hello There

Hello Ladies. Happy Friday!!

I was trying to use some of my scraps from my retired paper. This is what I came up with. Today I scrapbooked for the first time in a very long time. I met with a group at Archivers. I wanted to work on my wedding album which I've been tying to get done for a couple of years now. They didn't have the type of embellishments I was looking for. I did manage to get 1 page done and put a title on one of my other pages. I think I'm going to go back next week more prepared.

Happy Wednesday Ladies,
Today I thought I would use some of my retired SAB paper. I wanted to do something with the flower from the Asian Artistry stamp set. I love this flower. Well I have to go and try and get some things ready for a scrapbook thing I'm going to. We will be at one of the local scrapbook stores. I haven't really scrapped in a long time, so getting with some other ladies will help me get my pages done. Have a wonderful day!

I was looking at SCS and saw those cute Joy Flip Cards. I made one exactly like the tutorial and I made this one with the different DSP and card stock. I really like the way this turned out .

I was looking through the catalog (for the 500th time), and I saw a card with these colors in it. I just loved the way it looked. I cut the flowers out, but it doesn't look like it with the picture. Have a glorious day.

Song of Spring

Happy Sunday Ladies,

This card was a real challenge for me. I bought this stamp set because I wanted to get away from just buying flower sets. Well when I got it, I didn't like it. This is only my second card with this set. The challenging thing for me was coloring the bird. I looked in the catalog to see what colors they used for coloring it. It was hard trying to blend the colors together. I should have used the pastels instead of the ink. I like the final outcome of the card. I think it's cute. Have a wonderful day.

Hello Ladies. Happy Saturday to you all. Yesterday I went over to my upline Brenda's house. She showed me so many cute cards and things that she had been doing. She showed me this card she did with the Cheep Talk stamp set. It was sooo cute. This is my interpretation of it. Have a great day.

Hello Ladies,

Today's card is one that I saw on splitcoast. I tried to find it and now I can't. I like these colors together. I tried to dye some ribbon but I didn't do a very good job. It kept coming out too light. then I just took the marker and colored it. I should have just left it off but some of the ink is on the white part of the card now :) Oh well, I tried.

Happy Thursday Ladies,

Here is a card I did today. I just love these colors. They are so yummy.
I'm trying to get a million things done at once and not getting anything done. I just have to finish one thing before I move to the next thing. My problem is I can't concentrate on one thing for more than 5 minutes before I think of something else that needs my attention. My husband HATES when I do that. Well I'm off. I just thought of something else I have to do! LOL

Hello Ladies,

I wanted to make a card using my black card stock. I haven't made a card in ages with the black. I'm not liking the Bermuda Bay that much. It hasn't warmed up to me yet. I don't know if I like this card too much either. It's kinda *busy*. Well I'm off to try and create something else.
