Not a Sympathy Card!

So I totally copied this card from one I'd seen today on SplitCoastStampers. What I originally envisioned was a Sympathy Card for the workshop, but when I got done with the colors and stuff, I ended up with more of a Valentine than anything else! So, it gets posted to the blog instead of being used at the upcoming workshop! I used my one and only swirly stamp set for the heart (cut out with a Coluzzle template). Those swirls are another trend for which I'm late climbing on the bandwagon!

Happy Birthday, Matthew!

Hard to believe it was almost 3 years ago that Stacey called me from the hospital to tell me he'd arrived... and I got to tell her we were expecting our own arrival that fall!!! The stamp is from a retired TAC set, the patterned paper is from Nana's Nursery (DCWV). Ribbon is from the Wright's Outlet Clearance shelves... it's the PERFECT shade of chartreuse to match everything I've been making lately!

I HAVE been stamping...

but I haven't been posting my creations because I'm working on cards for the Sympathy Workshop, and it wouldn't be any fun to see them beforehand! So, I'll post this one... I made it last year at this time... very simple, but lots of cutting (I stamped the flower on the back of the pink and green paper and cut them out.) The buttons are attached with glue dots after being threaded with Scrapper's Floss.

Bra and Undie Template

Awhile back, I posted a bra and undie card that I had freehanded. Well, another stamper has uploaded templates, which will make it much easier for these. Here's the link:

Chartreuse, Baby!

Lately I've been using a lot of blue, orange, and chartreuse. I don't know why, but they seem to be everywhere. So I finally broke down and ordered the Cartreuse Palette Pad and am I ever glad I did. Again, the Bitty Blossoms added the little extra. PP is from the Nana's Attic collection that I just absolutely love!

My giga and mega scallop punches are on their way, so you'll be seeing more circles and scallops out of me... I was WAY behind in jumping on that bandwagon... which means the trend is probably on its way out, now!!!

Sympathy Workshop

Friday, February 29th at 7pm... at my house in Dudley. Pay just $1 per card and make only the ones you want! These are such difficult cards to make on-demand that I thought a workshop would be great for inspiration. Come and join the fun. Space is limited, so RSVP.

More Elegant Greetings

I am loving this set, and also the Bitty Blossoms. They come in great colors that seem to match everything. Originally, I had just the 'thanks' but it needed something. So, I turned to the Blossoms since I've been using them a lot lately, and it was just what the doctor ordered. The Pop Rockz paper is tons of fun, too!

The Purse, Revisted!

So, here's the latest purse design... I got both quotes from cafepress and KNEW they had to go on my new purse! I've put a lot of smiles on strangers' faces :-)

If you want your own, the purses are available here:

Copy Cat

So, I copied this card from somewhere, but I don't know where. I do know the original used a "Love" sentiment instead. You can't see it in the picture, but I scored 3 lines below the 'memories' just to give it some added texture. In the inside, I used a stamp from the Sympathy Set that says "We are blessed by the memories we have." A very simple and clean sympathy card...

My New Memory Purse

When I first saw this in the TAC Catty, I didn't know if it was worth it or not. But listening to other Angels talk about how great it was, I decided to order one... and I'm glad I did. The quality is right up there and I'm going to have tons of fun changing my purse!!!! This is what I did for now... will have to change it again once Stephen comes home, but I'll be more than happy to do it!!! For $29.95, I've already gotten my money's worth :-)
