You Make Me Happy

Ahhh it's Wednesday night, the weekend is almost here along with the warm sunny weather!

I have stuck to my guns and am continuing to make cards that are more general and can be used for a variety of occasions. I must say that I just adore this card...the image is too cute.

I started with a card base of Old Olive and Very Vanilla. I got the DP as a gift so I'm not sure who it is by but I will find out and update...I just loved it though. My image is Meredith the Tea Cup Girl by Stamping Bella. I thought she was going to be hard to color but she really wasn't. She was stamped in Tuxedo Black by Memento Ink and colored with copics. I used Memento ink in Melon and sponged the background to blend in with the DP.

Once again I used a rub on for the sentiment, I have really found a new life in these. I also used some shimmerz on the butterflies.

Happy Day

So happy Friday everyone!!! So I must say that I am probably just as shocked as you to see a new card up but late yesterday afternoon I went to switch some laundry and I thought I was going to proceed upstairs as usual when all of a sudden I had this pull towards my stamps and I put this card together in no time. Maybe the baby used the Jedi mind trick on me-lol!

Because I have depleted my card stash so much these past few months I really need some general cards that can be used for a variety of occasions. I thought today's could be used for a birthday or mothers day or just inspiration.

I started with a card base of basic Black, White and Groovy Guava. I ran my GG through my CB embossing folder. My DP is Recipe Box by October Afternoon. My image is Camille by The Greeting Farm and she was a limited release digi. I used my copics to color her, she is so fancy!! My sentiment is a rub on by SU as are my white and groovy guava ribbon. Just a simple card. Have a great weekend!!

Sorry I've been missing

Hi everyone!

As some may have noticed I have not posted in quite a while. To be honest I haven't stamped in quite a while. But I do have a good husband and I are having a baby!! It is our first one so we are very excited, but since we found out in mid February I do nothing but sleep!!! My stamping has taken the biggest brunt of the! I have missed you all, and missed seeing everyone's work. I'm hoping that my mojo will return with a gusto! Wishing you all a happy spring!!

SSSC58...Thinking of You

Good Monday afternoon!! Hope the weekend was kind to everyone, I spent Saturday having lunch with an old friend and then hitting the movies to finally see Avatar with the hubby. Sunday was just a day of hanging around waiting for the USA vs. Canada hockey game to start.

I used the sketch from Karen Giron's (The Sweetest Thing) Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge, SSSC58.

I started with a card base of Lemon and White by PaperTrey Ink and my DP Hippity Hoppity by We R Memory Keepers. My stamp set is Trendy Trees by Stamping Up.

I used my square punches and stamped the tree trunks and then stamped the leaves onto a seperate piece of white cardstock and used my circle nessties to cut them out and then poped them up on dimensional. I also rock and rolled by leaves in Pink Passion and Certainly Celery Ink by Stamping Up. The last two things I added were the white ribbon and the green sugar coated brads.
