Ok... so I have more cards that I completed this weekend... However I am told I am not suppose to post them until everyone gets them.... so you will have to wait til the middle of August and September to see them!

So now I need to make some other cards that I can post for you all! Here is one I am not using as a swap! Its a simple card using the top note sizzix die. I cut one in whisper white and used fifth avenue floral stamp set. Then cut top note in black, cut it in half and used it as a layer. This is also show in the new catalog! Its difficult to see but I did use an embossing template for the red background. Added a simple ribbon and here is an easy 5 minute anniversary card... or which ever sentiment you choose for it!


I will work on some more goodies and post something new tomorrow!

Happy Birthday Katie!!!

First things First!!! I have to say Happy Birthday to my daughter's BFF Katie!
Happy Birthday Katie!!!

Here is her birthday card... this is a retired stamp set from SU that I CAN'T GIVE UP! It's perfect for little girl's birthday cards or when you have a daughter that would love to be a princess! (Anna Banana) Here is the card that I made for her. I gave her dark brown hair to match Katie... and a little sparkle! Taylor said she enjoyed the card which always makes me happy!!

Well I had a semi productive weekend at the Crop Mania Event at Capture a Memory! I got 4 scrapbook pages done and 10 cards. I did learn that I can't go on 4 hours of sleep anymore! Those days are long gone!

I met some wonderful ladies this weekend and I would like to say HI!! to all the new visitors to my blog. I hope you enjoy.

Greetings Stampers!!!

Sorry I had to remove this because it is for a swap! I will post it later!

I am so excited about this new stamp set called Greetings Earthlings. Its new to Stampin Up in the 2009/2010 Annual Catalog! I am really into robots, aliens, trains, cars, etc now that I have little Zachary! I get to bust away from the tradiditonal girlie flowers and make some boyish stuff. I have to admit I struggle a big as to what is girlie and what is boyish!

Here is my first card with this new stamp set! I used the Top Note sizzix die exclusively from SU, rhinestone brads, checkered ribbon, brilliant blue, yoyo yellow, basic black, whisper white cardstock. I also used the new movers and shapres zissiz dies from SU by Sizzix. It created the black portion of the modern lable. I then took my modern lable punch and creaed the inside! I am also excited about the movers and shapers sets because they match up the SU punches to create these borders! They have a heart, star, modern lable, and scalloped oval!! I will have a card soon using the scalloped oval... its a MUST HAVE if you like scallops!!

Mojo Monday.... on Thursday!

I am trying something new.... I am going to use Mojo Monday (found by clicking on the flashing icon on the right) to give me a jump start into creativity each week. Although I didn't get it done til Thursday I still completed it! Check out their site its quite neat and they get a TON of entries because its open all week! So even if you need a little Mojo boost on Thursday you can still do it!

This was MOJO 94 but my first entry!

I used the new in color for SU! Can you guess which one? Melon Mambo!! Also used current colors ballet blue & certainly celery. Stamp set used is called pocket sillouettes. I love this set because it is small so you can do just a little flower or group them together to make a bunch! I watercolored these... little tip... I used ruby red to watercolor the flowers since MM is on backorder! I also used a little so saffron to create a sun look on top.

Enjoy! I am off to get my hair cut!!! YEA!!!

A look at the past!

Ok I have a card for you... however its not what I normally produce.. actually I don't even like it! If you have stopped by my house this week to pick up your stamps etc. you have seen it in many different forms. However I finally just glued it all down with the help of my 10 year old Taylor. She loves it... so I am posting it for her! Here you go T!

I feel guilty posting something I don't like... so I found a few samples of cards that I made when I was playing around with the stamp set Embrace Life. If some of these are duplicates I appologize! However I just wanted to show how one stamp set and a simple idea can make several different cards. The colors are sky blue or something... it was a in color a few years ago. (Its hard for me to remember since we had several catalogs.) I really love this stamp set. I have seen it used many different ways and for all different occasions. Hope you enjoy.

PS I got new goodies in the mail and I am working with them today. I am SUPER EXCITED about my new Stampin Up Exclusive Sizzix goodies!!
