Ready to stamp today.

I am so ready to stamp today… I worked in the yard all weekend now I am sunburned and sore!!!! My arms and legs are sooooooooo sore. I did get my garden in and a new apricot tree. The rest of the weekend was just maintenance and boy there is a lot of that. So it was nice to sit and make a few cards today. I made this little set of 4 cards to sale at the craft show when I get around to doing one.
This little 3” x 3” card is for the swap challenge on paper craft planet. We could use 3x3 cardstock, 1 flower, 1 brad, one piece of ribbon, sentiment, and no patterned paper.
I hope everyone has a great week.

Make-A-Wish Thank You

Well I am not feeling all that creative lately. I think I am having some crafty block or something. Jan I haven’t even started on the Make-A-Wish gift basket yet. I have no idea what to make. I am going to take a few days off and work in the yard maybe by next weekend I will have some brilliant ideas. If not I can always run to Hallmark. lol

I did make a Thank You card for Make-A-Wish today because I was feeling a little guilty I hadn't made one in a while. Hope everyone has a great weekend.

Happy Mother's Day

Still on the quest to use all my stamp sets. When I got this set I really liked it but... I have not liked anything I have made with it. I think you may see this set sent to eBay.

You can find directions Here

Pick a Petal Bee

Here is a card we made at one of Gina’s classes. We had been talking about it a few weeks ago and trying to remember how we made it. I was happy to see I had taken a picture of it. The stamp set is pick a petal by stampin up.

Totaly CASEd

This one is totaly a copy of a friends. I used my sizzix and cuttlebug to cut and emboss. The paper is 12" x 5 1/2" folded at 4" & 8".
Hope everyone has a great weekend, mine is going to be a busy one but hope to get some stamping done. I picked a wish child for Make-A-Wish so hope to get some of that rolling today. I would like to make a gift basket of some sort to give her when we first meet. If anyone has any ideas please let me know, she is 8 years old. I am very excited yet very nervous about trying to grant a wish of a lifetime.

I am still on the quest to use all my sets. I haven't used this one but I don't know why.... It is very cute!

I used the stampin up markers to color the image. I then used a brush to pounce color around the image. Looking at it here I should of pounced color around the small image too. Not to worry I will take care of that before this one goes out.

Top Note Quit Blocks

I have been seeing these cards all over. I like the fact they can be used for any occasion. This one is another Make-A-Wish thank you, but I think I will be making a baby one…. I have been saying I want a baby around right…Well I won’t be a grandmother anytime soon but I will be a great aunt again... And this one lives here in town so maybe I will be seeing him/her more.
So for this card I punched 1” x 1” squares and glued them to card stock. I used the top note die from stampin up and then the cuttlebug embossing folder. Easy and fast and sometimes that is just what you need.

Paper Craft Planet Cuttlebug Challenge

Well today’s challenge was a fun one. It was to make a masculine card using only blue, green, and gray and a neutral of your choice oh and of course your cuttlebug die or embossing folder. I think this card is just so cute I tend to use this design quite often. It really is a quick and easy masculine card.
