Welcome Sweet Baby Girl!

I wish I knew somebody getting ready to have a new baby girl. For some reason the picture seems dark, hmmm. Can you see the welcome above the bow? It is a simple card but I like simple sometimes. I keep saying that. Anyway, if you need a baby girl card, let me know.

Guess What I Got Today....Did you get one?

Starting Wednesday, we will be able to order from this mini. I was able to pre-order a few of the stamp sets to have on hand when this mini came out and oh man, are they cute! I have some of the new ribbon on my wish list. Actually, I have another order ready to be sent on Wednesday. We can order from this catalog starting October 1st all the way through January 18, 2009. If you didn't get a mini, you will be able to view it online at my Stampin' Up! website starting Wednesday, October 1st. SWEET!

For my friend!

Hope you had a great weekend! I am in my little stamping area stamping and listening to the crickets outside. I just finished this quick little card. I got the inspiration from a really neat blog called Clean and Simple Stamping. Man there are so many talented and creative people out there. I swear, I wish I had an ounce of that goodness, geez! Anyway, I am so glad they share their ideas.

A "Wild" Birthday Card!

My friend Becky's birthday was yesterday. She got a zebra print w/red trim purse for her birthday. She was telling me all about it over the phone and she was so excited. So I thought I would make her birthday card to match her purse.

Trick or Treat! Aww, Sweet.......

How cute is this little treat bag? Oh my goodness. I learned how to make this bag from Angie at Stampin' Academy. I only have one Halloween stamp set so I was limited with what I could do. I really wanted to make a Halloween treat bag though. So here it is. My pumpkins are up side down but still, I'm just saying... Anyway, below is a side view of the treat bag....SWEET! Thanks Angie at Stampin' Academy!

Grand Ole Time!

I really love this set. We are going to be making this card at my stamp camp. I used Basic Grey, Not Quite Navy, Kiwi Kiss, Whisper White and Urban Garden dsp. I stamped the image in Not Quite Navy then covered the white piece with a dryer sheet. Finally, I poured Dazzling Diamonds over the dryer sheet. You can kinda see the sparkle in the picture.

Happy Boo to You!

This is my version of Kristina's MACM as seen here.
I probably should have used a different color for my tag. Also, I could have shown more branches and less trunk. Anyhow, this was a fun card to make. I stamped the tree on vellum but then I put white behind it so that kinda defeated the purpose of the vellum. But hey, I think it is cute.

A customer of mine was selling some of her old stamps for a quarter each. I bought the tree stamp....FOR A QUARTER! I love tree stamps. Especially when they are only a quarter!

My card for the kwernerdesign color challenge #23...

I really felt the need to use Whisper White somewhere but she did not list WW so I didn't use it. (oops, I missed the "not-so-fine" print about using Whisper White or Very Vanilla. Boy am I a mallet head) Working from scratch does not come easy for me. That is why I decided to participate each week. Besides, it is fun. There are soooooo many creative and talented people that participate. I really enjoy seeing all of the entries and blogs. Thanks for looking!

It is that time again. I will make my second attempt at the KWerner color challenge. I just now thought to look and see what it is so it is kinda late in the day. Plus I have Emma AND baby brother Cooper tomorrow morning. The deadline is at 5:00 p.m. my time (I think). So talk about a challenge........
