New Toys . . .

Taking a break from all the sweltering heat this week and hankering to get a couple cards done with some of my new toys. . . hope you enjoy this one.


Wild Wasabi and Whisper White Cardstocks, Delicate Dollies Sizzlits and Finishing Touches Edgelits a bit of Summer Silhouettes stamping and topping everything off with some Stitched Grosgrain Ribbon.


No I did not make these flowers, but aren’t they gorgeous.  They just happened to match the Wild Wasabi perfectly, not to mention the size was perfect as well. 


I brought in a little of the Finishing Touches Edgelits to the inside.

Thanks so much for popping in on me today, as ALWAYS, I enjoy having you!  I’m off to the BIG APPLE next week - WAHOO!  If I get the chance to post before then here’s a peek of my next card using the Layered Labels stamp set.  *smiles*



Take Care Everybody and THANKS again for visiting!

Tea For Two…

A very happy Friday to ALL!  I hope your week has been good and your weekend is going to be even better!  *smiles*

I made this card a while back and was getting ready to mail it out when it happened to dawn on me that I never posted it.  I hope you like it.


I have this thing sometimes about everything going in the same direction.  In the Tea Shoppe stamp set all the cups are going in the same direction…..I wanted a cup with the handle on the opposite side.  Remember the A la Carte ‘Tiny Teacup’ stamp from last years IB&C?  It came in handy here.  *smiles*

I had some scrap pieces of designer paper on hand that ‘Always Artichoke’ ink just happened to go perfect with, then added a couple splashes of ‘Pretty In Pink’.


Take a closer look at the flowers…


I stamped them twice, snipping out one set and popped them up with a glue dot for some added dimension.  I did the same thing adding just a part of this flower to the sentiment.


Thanks so much for stopping by today, as ALWAYS, I’m so tickled to have you visit!  I’m hoping for time to play with all the new toys over the weekend……we’ll see.  Take care and stay cool!  We have had several record breaking days lately in this neck of the woods.

Hello Kitty . . . and I’m still around

Yes, alive and still kickin’ *smiles*.  I have no excuses and no idea where time goes.  But I can tell you time sure does fly……especially when you’re having fun!  It’s been one thing after another, yard work, revamping my stamp room, a beach vacation and even working in a little exercise.  I banned the computer altogether and found out just how much time I was spending on it……way too much! lol

Now who would have ever thought that anyone would miss me?  Didn’t take long to find that one out either. *smile*  I apologize for any concern and SO APPRECIATE the same.  I SINCERELY thank all of you for the sweet emails!  Each and everyone was a TON of INSPIRATION!

Todays first card was for Lucea, my neighbors little girl, who recently celebrated her 4th Birthday.  Her party theme was Hello Kitty, I was excited – punch art, here I come.   Some how I managed to bump Hello Kitty’s one whisker though, I hope Lucea never noticed. *smiles*  Hello Kitty was created with all SU! punches, I tried to use colored cardstock that matched her invitation – background stripes included.


I didn’t make a list of the punches and I have given the card away.  If you need them let me know and I’ll try to figure them out.

One email that I received from Patty S. was wanting info on a card that I had made earlier this year for a friend’s mother.  She needed a black and white card for a wedding and wanted to use the same idea and asked for the details.  Guess what Patty?  I needed the same color combo for a wedding card, hope this will help you out with some ideas,  Here’s mine.


At another angle -


The banner was cut from a ‘Be My Valentine’ Ala Carte stamp masking over the words – I wanted a blank banner.  The Mr. & Mrs. from the Tiny Tags stamp set was put into place with my Stamp-a-ma-jig.    OMGosh can I tell you how hard it is to capture white and black in a photo!  It was grueling!

Thanks sooooo much for stopping by today and again for all the kindness shown to me during my absence I am so thankful to have you all as followers and friends!  I’m having company over the next couple of weeks…….I may be MIA again – have NO WORRIES I’ll be back!  *huge smiles*
