A BFF kind of day

Hi Everyone! I have a quick post for you today. I have been busy creating with all the new sets that were given to me in my Convention bag. Besides Easy Events there was the Best Friends Forever set. I have to admit, I really didn't like this set when I first saw it in the catalog. It was one of those sets that I would just glance over, turn the page, and look for something that was more my style. Well after seeing all the amazing cards on the display boards at Convention, I felt a little better about having this set in my stash. Here is what I was inspired to make -

I first stamped the leafy branch images from the set in versa mark onto the crumb cake stock. Next I stamped the flourish in black down the middle of the stock. For the sentiment panel, I stamped the flourish in Versamark, and then the BFF image. I got out my rhinestone bling, added the line underneath the panel, and the created the flourish/crown on over the BFF following the stamped pattern of the flourish. I punched holes on either side of the BFF thread some black satin ribbon through, and the ruffled it a little. I think it turned out great! Thanks for stopping by and taking a peek. Details below -

Sending you love

Hi Everyone! I was blessed to be able to sit down at my desk yesterday, and create a few cards that I have had in the front of my brain since being away at Convention. My boys had a friend over, and my husband got home early from work, and said he would handle the rest of whatever needed to get done. I actually said "Huh?" Did I hear you right?" He repeated it slowly for me this time, and said, " I got it." With that said, I was hunkered downstairs until dinner, and then again until the wee hours of the morning!! So here is what I was busy creating -

For this card, I used a set that I recieved at Convention called Easy Events. I LOVE this set! The images are SO Sweet, and super fun to color! I colored my tree with various SU markers, and my versarker. To make my clouds, I used my various sized circle punches, and punched them in the form of a cloud. I also used the positive little hearts from the pinking heart border punch to add the detail on my sentiment panel. I am so happy that the idea worked out as well as it did! Super Cute right!  Check back tomorrow to see what else I created, OK, I promise you won't be dissapointed! Thanks for stopping by and taking a peek! Details below -

One Crazy Cool Convention

Hi Everyone! Yup! you can pick up your jaws off the floor now... I am actually posting! I know I surprised myself too! So where have I been?? I think you all have a good idea where I have been hanging out ... That's right the SU Convention! I can't even put into words the incredible time I had this year in SLC. I met so many new and old friends, that there was never a dull moment! And my Roomies this year were the BOMB! My sides and face hurt so much from laughing and giggling, that I wished it would never end. So here are a few pictures to highlight my trip to Convention this year.

I could go on and on... with all the pictures, stories and memories! The Fun is infectious! Can't wait till next year! :) Thanks for stopping by and taking a peek! :)
