Printworks Stamp

I have had this stamp for a while and there is just so much you can do with it. I broke it apart this time around and I have 2 cards I want to make out of it.

I will post the cards when I get them finished.

Stamping 411 Sketch 108

I just had to do at least one sketch this weekend. I still have a few I want to play with. It just depends...

My son is always looking for sports related cards, he can use for birthday parties, so I thought this would work. I love the quickutz football and the cuddlebug background.

Mint Purses

I was playing around on various blogs and I ran across these adorable little candy bags. I think they will be perfect for a little surprise when my in-laws come to visit. I plan on leaving a little something on their pillows each night before they go to bed.

I found them at Lorri's site. Check her site out. She has some amazing things on it.

The bags are 4 1/4 X 1 3/4. The scoring is at 1 1/2 X 2 5/8. I didn't have the chocolate so I will tape them into the bottom later.

New Paper Pack

A local store had their paper packs on sale last week so I bought the "Blossoms Butterfly Stack" by DCWV. I picked up the 4 1/2 X 6 1/2 size. They are just perfect for making cards. Over the next few months, I will probably be making more cards with butterflies. I think I like every page in the pack.

Here are the first two cards.

Catching up

I have been so busy this week that I haven't posted any of my cards.

I am hooked on the stand up cards. Here are two more examples for you. I used the "Wagonful of Fun" set from Stampin' Up. It is a really fun set to play with. I will be using it again and again.

Stand Up Card

Okay, I made another card today. My camera doesn't show the card off very well. There is glitter around the flower and on the flower. And the card is purple....

I got this template from Splitcoaststampers. It was fun and I will be making more of them.

Sketch Card

I have had no muse as far as creating cards goes, so I have been looking for sketches to work on. This is the challenge from OCC. It was just simply make a card using red, white and blue.

I hope you like it.

The Copic Colors

I am real excited about the new Copic colors. I love that they are extremely pale looking. I can't wait to try them.

New Card

Hello everyone out there in cyberspace. Here in Michigan, it is nice and sunny. Here is the card I was working on yesterday. I still need to work on my Stamping 411 card. Maybe later today. I also want to add some links on here.

Just Starting Out

Okay, I am new to blogging and I don't know how good I will be. I am not very good at writing down my thoughts so just bear with me.

It is Sunday afternoon and I have a few things I need to do but here I sit.

I started a new set of cards yesterday using Stamps by Judith. I hope to finish them after I get up from the computer. I also want to work on my Stamping 411 layout for the week. Then there is my son's scrapbook that needs some major work on it. I just don't have enough time to stamp.

My garden also needs some work done on it. I will probably wait until late afternoon to work on it. And of course I need to do some housework.
