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.

Birthday Wishes

Hello Ladies. Happy Wednesday. This is a card I did yesterday. I did one just like it in Crushed Curry but, I added some smaller stamped flowers from the set and it didn't look right. So I made this one using Soft Suede.

Hello There 2

Hello Ladies, Happy Sunday. I made this card when I did the one from the previous post. I was using up some of my scraps and this is what I came up with. It's very simple. Have a wonderful day!

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.

Go With all Your Heart

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!

Happy For You

Happy Tuesday Ladies.
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 think I'm going to make a bunch of these now since they're so easy to make. Have a wonderful day. (Sorry for the blurry picture. I had to take the flash off).

Thanks So Much

Happy Monday Ladies,

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.

Birds on a Wire

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.

Happy Friday!

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.

Kind & Caring

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

Happy Tuesday!!

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.

Happy Monday!!

Happy Monday Ladies,

Today I have a card I made using the Kind and Caring Thoughts stamp set. I used Orchid Opulence which I have had for about 2 years and I never really used it before now. It goes great with Rich Razzleberry and Old Olive. I was looking through the catalog and saw the DSP with these colors and I wanted to make a card with them.

Thanks So Much

Hello Ladies,

I hope everyone is enjoying their Saturday. I put together this quick card. I sponged to make it look something like the paper. Have a great weekend.

Thinking of You

Happy Friday Ladies! I'm so happy this week is over. Only 2 more days of Summer School and I'm done until the beginning of August. Here is a card that I made that took me no more than 10 minutes to do. I wanted to make something quick and cute. I like the way it turned out. I'm starting to like this set more than I thought I would

Happy Thursday

Hello Ladies. This is my first try at stitching on a card. My husband bought me a small sewing machine so I could make some bags to put on the back of my student's chairs. After about making 10 bags I got the hang of using this machine. You have to know I have NEVER used a sewing machine in my life. My 14 year old daughter knows more about sewing than I do!! I guess practice makes perfect.

Look at what showed up at my doorstep this morning. I knew it was supposed to come today but the UPS tracker changed the date to the 8th. I'm glad it came today since I'm off. There are still about 5 things I ordered that are on backorder. Well I'm off to play with my new goodies.

Another Get Well Soon

Hello Ladies,

I finally got some time to stamp!! I sat down today determined to create SOMETHING. I made this get well soon card. I used Eastern Blooms and Garden Greetings Stamp sets. I used Certain Celery, Rose Red and Bashful Blue cardstock. I used Rose Red, Regal Rose and Bashful Blue ink and Certain Celery ribbon. (Sorry about the crooked line, my Stamp-a-ma-jig moved).

I was a little upset because I thought I was going to get my delivery for my new sets, inks, paper and catalogs on Monday, but I checked again and it's not coming until Wednesday!! Oh well.
