Roses in Winter

I traded stamps with Linda and this is one of the stamp sets I chose. I don't have any stamps like this, and it is very different from my usual style. I am pretty happy with my trade, and I hope Linda is enjoying her new sets.

blog candy alert!

Check out this awesome candy at starving artists!

The dancing birds

OMG, I just LOVE it when an idea comes together and the end result is EXACTLY what I envisioned! I adore the way this card turned out! Oh, Linda, you may not get this stamp set back! LOL!
You know, I think the 2006 summer mini was my favourite. Cowboy Kid, spunky alphabet, polka-dot posies, shore thing, flip flops wheel, edgy eloquence, clowning around and Pattern of Friebdship...all awesome sets that I really miss! Just thought I'd share. stamp set: Shore Thing, Edgy Eloquence
card stock: chocolate chip, close to cocoa, white
ink: close to cocoa
acc: dimensionals, twine

I borrowed the set Shore Thing from fellow demo and friend, Linda and I just LOVE it! Those birds are so cool! I thought I had pumpkin striped grosgrain, but couldn't find it, so I used blue. I'll be adding pumpkin to my next order!

Inside card says "Have a beachin' birthday" That cracks me up!

feeling a little spooky...

This is for you, Linda!
Yes, I really do send Halloween cards. I also give them to my hostesses and customers in October.I absolutely LOVE making them!
I have used SU Batty For You, SU Sanded background (which looks like a spider web!), CTMH Halloscream, CTMH Halloween Dingbats and two Michaels dollar stamps.
To see more Halloween cards, click on the label marked Halloween on my sidebar!

Have a spooktacular day!

Pretty in Blue

This sentiment translates to, "from the bottom of my heart..."

Guess how many cards I sold this week? Go ahead...guess...Give up? I sold 70 cards this week. 80% were father's day cards, 20% were assorted. I am thrilled!

My next goal is to sell my boxes of assorted cards...I sell those for 25.00 so my goal is 8. If I can do it, then I will have successfully paid my flight to SLC by SELLING CARDS! That would be wild!

So I am very busy crafting this weekend!

Father's Day Shirt

LOVE these origami shirts! I'm also happy to be using old paper that I hoarded! LOL!

Dino Days!

Tina got this new line of paper in, and I just LOVE it! I made cards for Father's Day, AND a cool LO, which I will post later on this week.
On this card I used chipboard letters from Queen and Co.

For the second card, I used my circle punches to cut out dino images from the paper and mounted them on black and used pop dots to add dimension.

Gone Fishing

Another Father's Day card. So far, I have created about 30 cards, all different designs, for Father's Day, and I have sold about half of them. I hope to sell the rest this week at work. Gotta pay for my flight to SLC somehow!

Father's Day

I have been very busy making father's day cards. I hope to sell them at my job. I sold 30 cards for Mother's Day, so I hope to do about the same.
For this card, I used Happy Camper and more mustard, chocolate chip, ruby red and always artichoke ink.

I stamped this at Jen's last weekend. Paired Wild Wasabi with Certainlt Celery and used the set Unfrogettable.
