I amde this card this past weekend. I had thought I was making it for a VSN challenge, however I didn't realize that I was supposed to have made this gatefold for a different challenge thread!! So I used the wrong stamps on it, but I do love the way it turned out. The backgrounds are one of my retired SU! sets - Groovy and the girl is an Anya stamp. I was very pleased with the way it turned out!

Thanks for coming by and let me know what you think...

Summer Fun and another DIVAS SS challenge

Well, it appears some days that summer may soon be on the horizon! I am crossing my fingers hoping so. We have had chilling and rain the past week and I need some warmth and sun! :) This is the card I made for my Divas SS. Our challenge was to create a bright and sunny summer card. I think this fits the bill. I can almost feel the sun warming me as I look at it. I hope my sis likes the projects also...

Thanks for popping in and don't forget to leave me a little feedback on your way out! ;) See ya soon!

May DIVAS Challenge

Hi! Thanks so much for coming by! Today I am showing my card I created for my blogging sisters group Designing DIVAS. Dru posted the challenge and it was to create a masculine card. Since Father's Day is fast approaching I wanted to make sure I was ready. I came up with this card and used a flashy classic car for the main image. I also used sage shadow ribbon and some SU! coordinating design paper. Just a bit of a simple card. but I love the green and gray and I think my Dad will love it.

Thanks so much for coming by today and as always, I would love to know what you think!

Happy Hump Day!! And another Bombshell Blog Hop!!

Welcome to another Wednesday! This is a special Wednesday though because it is the Bombshell Stamps monthly blog hop!! The theme this month is "Look Ma I Did It!"
Here are the details:

Call it a Mother's Day theme....or Just fun.
This month, we want to see what you are made of....and what you can make.

You can make any sort of project, a card, a layout, an altered just need to make a handmade embellishment. It can be a flower, button, etc... You just have to make it.

Pair it with a great Bombshell stamp and get ready for the bloghop.

So my card it a bright and cheerful one of red and white - 2 of my favorite colors to use on cards together! I made the little paper flowers on the bottom of the card and added some red satin ribbon and a copic colored Bombshell to the mix! I also finished it with some mulberry paper whhich I frayed under the image. You can follow along the hop from the links below. Your first stop should be Kas and you can go from there!


Thanks so much for stopping by today! I spent a bunch of time stamping yesterday so I will have more posts for you this week also! Take care and let me know what you think before you leave...

Design Divas Challenge #3

OK, this was my attempt at a hinged card. I am happy with it, but I think I can tweak it before I decide which one to send off to my SS. I followed the directions on splitcoast stampers to make it and it was a bit of a challenge, but all the instructions for things I have found so far are so easy to follow! I just love trying new things with my stamping!! I did find my camera but I need to get some new batteries tomorrow for it.

Thanks so much for popping in and as always I would love any feedback!

Keeping Up with the DIVAS! :)

This is the project I made for my secret sister swap in my DIVAS blogger group. There is a challenge posted weekly for 6 weeks, then we send our projects off to our DIVA SS. This project challenge was to create a card using paper piecing. I have not stamped in a bit and was a little bewildered as to what to create. All in all I thought it turned out well. I do love my little Gorguss Girl stamps!!

Thanks for coming by today. I have a couple more posts planned before Sunday for this week so hopefully I can get in gear and get them posted! As always, I love your feedback!

I have not posted in forever! I had a few projects done and didn't get a chance to post them as I took the kids away last week for my cousin's wedding. We were gone from Thursday till Sunday and I had been so busy with activities I was just too pooped to post. Sorry!!! Anyways, this is an ATC I made for a technique swap over at the Bombshell Stamps forums. I have been doing a bit over there as I love the stamps. I only have 2 sets but I am hoping to get a new set or 2 next month. We will see what happens - with 5 kids usually something in life comes up... sigh.... Oh well.

As always, thanks for popping by. I just have a quick post as I need to get to bed. Work tomorrow and it is already 11:30 PM here. 6:30 comes way too soon!! PS... I would love to hear what you think!
