You little furball

Hey Everyone! I have a quick share this morning.. The house was quiet last night and I took advantage of it, by listening some good tunes, and getting a little inky too! I broke out a new stamp set to me called You Little Furball, a must have since I have two furballs in this lil'ol' house of mine..:) I wanted to knock out a Halloween card with this set, and here is what I came up with -
I got super creative with my punches and dies, and used the hostess set Good Greetings again. LOVE! It literally has a sentiment for EVERY occasion.. :) There are only a couple of weeks left to get yours! :) OK, I am off to chores, and hopefully carving a pumpkin or two! Thanks for stopping by and taking a peek!

Thanks Pumpkin(s)

Hello Everyone! The sun is finally out here in the midwest. We can at long last get some pictures of all the beautiful trees turning, and see everyones pumpkins on their porches. :) Inspiring to say the least.. I was inspired to play a little more with the Good Greetings hostess set, and pair it with the sweet Fall Fest set from the holiday catalog. Here is my card -

I stamped my pumpkins in Crushed Curry, then sponged on Tangelo Twist for some depth, and used my chocolate chip marker to add the little vines too. Definitely a busy card, but I think it all works together. :) Thanks for stopping by and taking a peek!

Truly Grateful (undefined)

Hello Everyone! I actually had to sit down and stamp this past weekend.. :) My oldest son will be making his Conformation in a couple weeks, so I needed to get out his invites for the family. Looking through my stamps I realize, I have nothing appropriate for a conformation card/invite. No dove, cross, or anything remotely close to what I needed. So.., what else do I do besides go into full blown panic mode,... I break out my Undefined stamp carving kit, and make my own.. Whoop!! Here is my card and handy-work -
I kept the images REAL simple considering this was the first time I ever did this, and I love the outcome. I used a sentiment from the set Truly Grateful and think it fit just fine too! OK, I am off to get these in the mail and one their way. Thanks for stopping by and taking a peek! :)

Give thanks

Hi Everyone! I took some time for myself yesterday, and played a little downstairs. I have had very little time for any play time since the beginning of the school year, and it really felt good to get a little inky. I had a back to basics kind of play day yesterday, and played with only things that were in front of me on my desk,.. Paper, Ink , Scissors, and punches, and of course some stamps sets that had yet to see any ink. :) I decided to play with Nuts about You, and... a hostess promotion exclusive set called Good Greetings. Both sets can be earned if you host a $300 dollar workshop. Good Greetings however is FREE with a qualifying order through the month of October... ,.. So Hurry up and get yours! Anyhoo, here is my card -
I had a lot of fun with all the fussy cutting, while listening to some oldie but goodies on the radio. I think my favorite parts of the card are the little birds pilgrim hat, and the picket fence.. Fun! OK, I am off and running... Thanks for stopping by and taking a peek!

Partridge & Pears

Hey Everyone! I took advantage of the heat this last week to make a few samples for an upcoming demo meeting showcasing the new holiday catalog, and the blendabilites markers. I was asked to come up with a project, and some examples, so I have a share today of one of those samples. :)
I used the new set Partridge & Pears.. When I got the holiday catalog, I was immediately drawn to this set.. Probably considering it would be super fun to color with none other than SU's new Blendabilites markers.. *wink* Love the outcome and the markers! Hopefully you will give them a try too.. Thanks for stopping by and taking a peek! :)

Frame for Neighbors

Hey Everyone! LONG time no post right?! No excuses this time, I have been away, and that is that. I needed a break, and thats what I did. I have really needed to put some time into other things, the end result, nothing really notable to share. C'est la vie. :) I do however have a share today... a frame for my next door neighbors wedding today.. Yup, TODAY... nothing like waiting until the very last minute right..
I used mostly SU colors and papers for this creation. The textured paper is from a local craft supply store, to match the ribbon from their invitation.. I used a retired set called Because I care for the Hydrangea image, and an old favorite color Kiwi Kiss too! Sorry for the picture quality, I guess I am a little rusty, considering the time away. OK, I am off to wrap this baby up, and get ready for their big day.. Thanks for stopping by and taking a peek!

50 Years

Hey Everyone!... I have a share this evening..:) I know it is late, but I still wanted to share this creation with you. I needed to make a 50th Anniversary card for some long time family friends, and really wanted to make something special for them.. I found some inspiration via a Google search of Anniversary cards, and landed on a card made by Yvette Ashe..... Uber talented, and a fellow Dirty Girl Alumni.. :) Here is my inspired card -
I took alot of her same elements, and just change a few things around. I think they will love it, I know I do... :) OK.. Off to put the kiddos to bed.. Thanks for stopping by and taking a peek!
