It is almost FRIDAY!

This week has been going by very quickly. Not only has work been busy but I started the 1st book in the Twilight series. I can't put it down! I haven't done much stamping this week as I am on the mend from a sinus infection. I have a card to show you that I made last week. I love, love, love this stamp and saying from Inky Antics. This weekend I am going to a copics class taught by Jen Del Muro. I can't wait! I am finally going to jump on the COPIC bandwagon and figure out how to add some bright and beautiful color to my cards. Wish me luck!

Presidents day - and a day off!

Today I had a day off! I got the chance to sit around and make cards and relax. What could be better. I made several cards today but this one is my favorite. I finally inked up my stamping bella with the umbrella that has been calling my name. I am obsessed with wild wasabi paper and I am so afraid of running out but it is going to happen soon. The card says "rain or shine"...and on the inside "I'll be your umbrella".

Hope you enjoy the card....

I have it listed on e-bay under item # 220363268755 if you are interested in purchasing it.

Heart day has come and gone....

Well it is Sunday and the valentine mania has come and gone. I didn't do much for valentines day. My hubby and I decided to do dinner on a different night to avoid the chaos. Today I have a quick card to share with you....

I made this card for a friend using a stamp from inky antics. I absolutely love the saying. They had a few stamps like this but I really liked this one the best. I used pink pirouette and red riding hood to make the card.

A bright and cheery card...

Last night I made a few cards. This card is for a friend's relative that is in the hospital. She said she needed a card for a man and didn't want it to say "get well" just I'm thinking of you. I was totally up for the challenge. I made a mess in my scrapbook room but I think the end result was worth it!

Hope everyone is having a great week!

Sometimes we all need a little "retail therapy"

I wanted to pop in to say a quick hello! It is late and almost time to turn in. I made this card yesterday using Jen Del Muro's sketch from Saturday. I love the way this turned out.

I used the set from My Favorite things and then hand cut out the shoes and the purse and popped them up. I used Purely pomegranate and Kiwi Kiss as well as the new Raspberry Fizz paper from Stampin up. Love it! The inside of the card says "Good Friends are priceless" which is so true!

Hope you enjoy the card and have a wonderful week!

A lazy weekend full of reading and stamping!

This weekend has been fantastic. The weather is cool and windy which is unusual for TX. I spent most of the day yesterday crafting and reading "A Good Woman" by Danielle Steele. Great book if you haven't picked it up. I read half the book in one day if that is any indication. I created two cards....

St. Patty's Day

On this card I used my favorite St. Patty's day moose from Hanna Stamps. I used some stickles for the gold in the pot and the shamrock in the hand. I used Wild Wasabi paper (print on print and solid) and black cardstock. I wish Wild Wasabi had beccome part of the permanent color collection. I stamped the inside with "Lucky me, I've found you".

I also made another card for someone who is expecting. I pulled out my Amy Butler pad and my favorite Shadow girls set from Stampin up and got to work. The kiwi kiss and blue bayou complemented this card so well....

I am offering these cards for sale on e-bay if you are interested.
