Happy Monday

So excited to use PaperTrey's new sentiment stamp set. It is amazingly so versatile. I also used the Polka Dots set. The cards are a little different size than I am use to, but I wanted to make cards that would fit into half of a standard card envelope. I know, weird, but I have a big box of envelopes and I wanted to make some gift sets. So as you can see, I cut the envelope in half and made my own flap. I ony used one 12 x 12 DP paper (it's double sided so it looks like I use 2)and 2 sheets of craft cardstock. Hope you are off to a great week!

Top Note Purse

Very monochromatic, I know. I've been wanting to try this for a while. So many cute top note purses on SCS. I also was dying to try to make one with the Stampin' Up punch. This is what I came up with. Let me know what you think. Thanks for stopping by.

Where has the time gone???

I have been so busy I have tons to share with you. Work has been crazy and the kids are on Spring Break. One this week, one next week, YUCK! Yesterday we had a snow blizzard in Colorado- what a blessing! That meant I had to stay put! Got caught up on laundry and cleaning house; feels so good to sit and create in a clean house!

Can't wait to share what I came up with. I am so excicted to show you these SUPER cute lambs I cased from SCS. MariLynn made these lambs as Card Candy, all I did was add a scalloped circle and a peppermint patty to them. Check out her lambs here.

Little chick

I am in the Spring kind of mood. The weather here in Colorado has been awesome. 72 today, but I'm worried that March is going to bring more snow that we care to have to deal with. I still have California blood, which means anything under 60 degrees makes me have to "layer".

Here's some pieces I am working on... I'll let you know what I end up doing with these.

Cased this one!

The monkey is back again! This is a super cute set. I used crstal glaze on the puddle under their feet, on the red dots on the umbrella and on the rain boots on the bottom border. The inside says "I'm glad we're together". I don't know how to make JUST ONE CARD. Does anyone else have this problem? I feel like if I'm going to one, I might as well make some extra for my stash.

My daughter Aly and I sent and did the "make 'n take" at Archivers this weekend. This is one of the 2 cards we made.
Thanks for stopping by.

Love this Monkey!

I know, I know... I said I was going to use what I have. And I did, sort of. I have come to the conclusion that stamps don't count- so I used paper I already had from a VERY Long time ago. I also wanted to share how I work when I mass produce. I picked up this stamp at Archivers. It's one of the new stamps that has a "cling" type back on it. I love the saying "Some mornings you know it's going to be a two cup day". Ain't that the truth! Happy Monday!
