Papertrey Ink Blog Hop

Here is my card for the Papertrey Ink Blog Hop Challenge.

Nichole's challenge was to use a sheet of paper that she designed. The paper was basically several square swatches from the "Father Knows Best" paper pack. We could use it in any way we chose. I picked my favorite pieces and used a 1 1/2" sqaure punch and punched out the sqaures and mounted them on Whisper White paper. The flowers are from the Garden of Life set (I LOVE these!!) I stamped them on white and then mounted on Close to Cocoa cs that was cut with my Nesties. The flower piece is popped up with pop dots. I also used the outline of the daisy flower with VersaMark and stamped it on the Close to Cocoa, just so it wasn't too plain. The sentiment is from the same set and I stamped half of it at a time and then used my Word Window punch to punch out both pieces, these are popped up with smaller pop dots. I apologize for the horribly quick post, there was an accident on the freeway and it took me for-ever to get home! If you love this card, I assure it is 100% because Nichole is amazing! (if you don't care for the card, then it is totally the "artists" fault, lol). Happy Friday! Thanks for stopping by!!! You can go here to see the other Bloggers participating in this challenge and to vote for your favorites!! Voting is from 5 pm - 8 pm Pacific Time.

Bloggers Challenge

Wow, a day late and a dollar short!! Sorry I am a day late! Holy Snickerdoodles...wouldn't ya think the 11 shoebox swaps & 2 make n takes I did earlier today and Stamp Mania would have been enough? Ohhhhhh Nooooooo I just had to come home and make more (well, yeah the fact that I am late on this was a pretty good motivator :) ). This weeks challenge was to use chipboard...I particularly appreciated this challenge because I LOVE chipboard!!!!!!! I just never seem to use it!! This was a quick and simple card, but I kinda like it! I took two postage stamp style pices of Chipboard (from Stampin Up) and painted them white with some Making Memories paints. Those are Primas inside the boxes with Antique Brass brads popped up on Pop Dots. The sentiment is from Stampin Up!
Thanks for visiting, I hope you are having a wonderful weekend!

My doorprize for Stamp Mania...

This is my door prize for Stamp Mania (which was today). If you are at all able to get down to Southern California for this event next year, I highly recommend it!!!! Jami, Joy & Emily host this SCS event and it is beyond fabulous!!! I had a great time! All the gals there were wonderful, the Shoebox swaps were was an all around perfect day!!!!

So this was the door prize I made. I took a paint can and wrapped some Afternoon Tea Dp around it and then finished the edge with some yummy Stampin Up ribbon. I didn't decorate or stamp on the Dp because I figured whoever won it may want to customize it for whatever they decided to use it for. I tied double stitch ribbon in Wild Wasabi, Groovy Guava and a misc brown on the handle. For the lid I used another piece of Afternoon Tea Dp and mounted it on some Chocolate Chip cs. I added a couple of Prima floweres with some varied brads. The sentiment is from My Favorite Things (I love this set, Twisted Sentiments). I filled my pail with am altered notebook, some clear little stamp sets, and, of course, some chocolates (yummy). I hope the winner of this likes it, I do!!
Thanks for stopping by...

Huggy Bellas for Kim

I made this card for Kim for keeping me from freaking out about Stamp Mania!! I was so stressed about getting my stuff done...thanks Kim!! This was just a quick flap fold card (my hubby even cut all the paper for this!!). Both stamps are from stamping bella.
Thanks for stopping by!!

Bloggers Challenge #42 - Triangle Box

This week's Bloggers Challenge was to make a triangle box, you can go here to get the directions for the pattern I used. Ok, so this is not one of my more creative projects, but it will serve a great purpose! When I saw this week's challenge a bunch of ideas came to mind, but when I started putting them together... well let's just say there are several unfinished versions of this box on my table (I will probably make more this weekend). I have been wanting some cute little something to hang on my monitor at work, and how perfect is this?!? For those of you who don't know, one of my favorite things to do, one thing that ALWAYS makes the world better (besides stamping); is to go for a drive, turn my radio up really, really loud...and then sing even louder! I know it sounds dumb, but I'm tellin' ya it can totally cure what ailes ya!! Enough of my ramblings, go and check out the other, much more talented girls in the Bloggers Challenge. There's a link on the left side of my blog. Thanks for stopping by, and Happy Friday!

Happy Birthday Gram'ma!

Tomorrow is Gram'ma's birthday! Every year for my whole life, as far back as I can remember, my Gramma has called me on my Birthday and sang to me...this is one of those memories that puts a huge grin on my face! I will not sing to her tomorrow, and if you've ever heard me sing you know why! Anyway, I got the "You Take the Cake" set from MFT recently, and thought Gramma's card would be perfect to ink it up for the first time!
Happpy Birthday, Gramma! You are amazing and wonderful and I love you to the moon!!! (and back!!)
Thanks for stopping by! Don't forget tomorrow is Bloggers' Challenge day, and after a 3 week flake (I mean break), I am ready to jump in again! Happy Thursday all!

Another Garden Hanna

This Garden Hanna is just way to o fun to color!!!! I love when you get a stamp set and the ideas just start flowing!! I don't even know what I'm going to do with this card, but I really like it! Quick, simple card!! I used my Copics to color (of course, gotta love those Copics!!), yup, I even used some of the Copics that I won from Hanna (The wonderful Miss Kristi was giving away a Basic set and I won them. She asked for my address and BAM! they were here the next day!!!! She rocks! I highly encourage everyone to participate in her Release Day Challenges (on SCS, in the Member Forum). The 2 3D flowers on the bottom were from a present box I got from Tina Wilson (my awesome Sistah, from a Sistah Swap), thanks Tina!!
