Anyways, you know the rules... create a card, scrapbook page, or other paper crafting item utilizing at least one item from your supplies that you have not used for 6 months or more.
If you got here from Chin's blog you are on the right track! You can start at the beginning here.
This card I made with one of my oldest Gorjuss Girls stamps. I just love them! The paper is from a secret sister swap I did several years ago. All in all I quite love this card. I think it is a great all occasion and the colors set if off nicely.
Thanks for coming by and as always I would love your feedback! You can continue hopping along to Cindy's blog and enjoy more of the OBG hoppers creations!
Take care and I promise I will see you soon!

Well, this is the last of the cards I had made at my sister's house. I wanted to play around with black and white. I always love how these turn out. They just seem to have an air of sophistication to them. She also has this set which I love. I love that she has the same tastes as I do in stamps a lot of the time as that way I can just use some of hers too... :)
Thanks for dropping in and have a great day! As always I would love to know what you think!

I just can't believe how fast time goes! Luckily I am done with all the kids activities for the summer and can get in a bit more me time! This card is one I made at my sisters house last month. I love going to someone elses and creating with their goodies! It forces me to get out of my comfort zone and create something completely different!
This card I used some great paper she had and paired it with some raspberry paper. I added the scalloped satin ribbon and a few funky polka dot fabric brads. I don't have either of these stamp sets so having the chance to play was so fun!
Thanks so much for coming by! I know I have been away an awful lot, but I am working on getting back into my blogging mode! Take care!

I am using a pad of DP I found in my stash and a stamp set I got eons ago from Michaels I believe. The pearls are from Stampin Up! as well as the organza ribbon. I used the scallop punch for the edge. I have a couple of co-workers expecting girls this year and I am getting a jump start on cards for the baby boom coming! :)
Now you get to head off to see what Linda has for you on her blog.
Thanks so much for popping by and as always I would love to know what you think! Take care and see you soon!

I am sorry for not having any updates lately then sporadic ones when I do. I have been busy with the kids activities and a bunch of personal stuff going on with me right now, but I promise not to neglect my beloved blog forever! This past weekend I went to my sister's house for a bit and played in her craft room. I love going where you have completely different things to use! I ended up making 3 cards and I am going to put them into 3 posts this week...
The first one I picked some DP I liked and played with the eboss and cut folder from SU to make some embossed butterfly cutouts to put on the front. I also used some white rub ons. I made it for my Mom for Mother's Day. I can't wait to give it to her!
Thanks so much for popping in. Take care and see you soon!

This is the third project I have done for our Spring SS swap. I almost have my package all assembled tp send. I do still want to pick up a couple treats also. I will finish posting the projects this weekend. This challenge was to pake a project using a die or paper piecing. I did use dome punches on the front and some pre die cut border edge. The inside is decorated with a top note die cut. I was actually really pleased with how this card turned out. I love flopsy and never seem to use him near enough!
Thanks so much for popping over. I would love any feedback you have for me! See you soon!

Well this project challenge was just to make a thank you card using spring colors. I love fun spring colors and the colors on this DP jumped out at me. I also added a stamping bella image I received through wish RAK over at Splitcoast Stampers a while back. I still am not convinced that spring will EVER arrive here, but I remain hopeful at least. I can't wait until I can wake up to a morning warmer than -20 or colder. It has been the routine the past few weeks. (sighs...)
Anyways, I love how the layered flowers added a nice touch to this card. I managed to find a focal one that had all the colors to match the DP. My thank you sentiment is on the inside.
Thanks for coming by! I am going to plan on some more stamping this weekend and maybe wading through some of my supplies to see if I have any to downsize. Take care and see you soon!

Wow! I feel like I just posted and then life gets busy and before I know it I have lost a week or even 2! What is going on? Well, besides the fact that we are STILL waiting to get out of a deep freeze here (-28 with the wind chill and coldest start to March in 90 years.... ugh!!) I have been busy taking care of several personal things. BUT I have been working on some stuff and I am going to share with you now! This is a card I made for the vintage card challenge for my SS group. I kinda feel like I cheated a bit because the image was printed, but I think it is pretty cute. I dressed it up with some DP and flowers and added the St paddys day greeting. You can't tell but I sprayed the whole thing with glimmer mist in gold and the overall effect is pretty.
Thanks so much for coming by! I am glad you took the time to visit and would love to know any feedback you have for me! Take care!

This is a card I made with a wonderful vintage image of Barbara Streisand. My mom has always loved her and I think I will give her this one for her birthday. The inside has the saying "Well behaved women rarely make history. I had fun with her and I love the way the card turned out!

This is the Valentine card I made. I searched for vintage images and fell in love with this one! I tried uploading it last week but it was pretty blurry and I didn't get a chance to take the picture again until now.
Just a quick post. Thanks so much for coming by and as always I would love to know what you think!
