Spoiled Rotten

My sister sent me this gorgeous Heidi Grace chipboard and flowers last month. I got her hooked too!! Tee-hee.

Then my friend bought me these new Heidi Grace stamps the other night!! I am spoiled rotten!!


The dog upstairs had 4 puppies, 2 girls, 2 boys. They are gorgeous. This is them last weekend, and this weekend they were bigger and all over the place. I am in love!!!

Christmas card contest entries

Sarah my SU demo who is uber-talented had a card contest and she just posted the winner. The winning card is stunning.

These were my entries into her contest. I made them with my friend Cindy a few weeks ago in the midst of my car breaking down crisis. At least we were able to get some cards made in the middle of my car being in the repair shop. I used her SU Baroque Motifs stamp set. It actually is such a nice and versatile set. I mean hello- Christmas cards too!! Hmm, maybe I do need it before the new catalog comes out in January to tempt me.

Supplies- SU cardstock- Real Red, Handsome Hunter, Very Vanilla
SU- Ink- Handsome Hunter, Very vanilla- which I then embossed in gold as it didn't stand out as much as I had hoped it would.
Other- SU Brads
Stamps- SU- Baroque Motifs and All Year Cheer I (retired)

My 2nd entry. During the making of my first card I decided that the flowers definitely look like snowflakes as well, and so this card just totally came together.

SU- Ink and Cardstock- Bashful Blue and Very Vanilla
SU- Stamps- Baroque Motifs, Warm Words
Other- Ribbon- SU retired. Brads- SU, glitter- stickles, Paper piercer, Circle punch 1 1/4,

Using what was on my table last week, and this is what was created. The coffee cup sticker is from EK Success, which I found at Walmart as a set for a $1.49. Whoo hoo. I love my Java! At work right now my screen saver is coffee cups and then the power saver screen says Java, Java, Java.

Happy belated World Card making day.

This is all the stuff I had to take with me in my car to my friend's house in order to make that set of cards. he he! Gotta love the home front scrappin' and card makin' space. It requires so much less effort. At the end of the 2 day event- cuz I spent the night and we made cards the next day. My friend said- "you really need a tote on wheels!" Umm. I am not sure that it would help that much. But thanks for the advice, I will keep it under advisement. :) Hope that your Canadian Thanksgiving weekend was spectacular, and I hope that your world card making day was a success

This is the card I made for World card making day at my friend's house. It was a great day!!

This is from day 2 of our adventures!

dreaming about cards again

Seriously love that I dreamed about stamps and stamping again!! ( see below post from Oct. 1) This stamp has been in my possession for years!!

Cardstock- whisper white, Cool Caribbean- SU.
Stamps- flower- Deborah Farber designs, word stamp Short and Sweet-SU.
Ink- Versamark, basic black-SU
Metal flower-Making Memories.
Punch- Punch Bunch

I also dreamed up another project too, but I have to find a few more parts, before I can put it together. Let me just say I love these sort of dreams. They are so much better than running around like a crazed nurse dreams!!
