One of the "perks" of being a demonstrator, is you get to order the sets early (so you have time to make samples, etc). I ordered 2 of the sets, because I am going to earn the others, lol! This one is called Friendship Blooms and I had fun using it! I cannot wait to ink it up again.
I stamped the flower with white craft ink on purely pomegranate paper (and did the same with the leaves on wild wasabi), then I cut them out and popped them up with a dimensional. I also added a pink iridescent brad to the center of the flower.
Thanks for stopping by today!
supplies used: (all SU! unless noted) Friendship Blooms stamp set; purely pomegranate/wild wasabi/blue bayou/kraft/natural ivory cs; white craft/blue bayou ink; purely pomegranate double stitched ribbon; iridescent ice brad

I had yesterday off...I decided to take the day off to catch up on some of the stuff I didn't get done over the weekend. I went grocery shopping and to Costco (all in one day), and if you know me...I hate to grocery shop! It feels good to have it all done and put away. I also did some other things around the house, but did not get to my stamping...bummer!
So it is back to work today...at least it will be a short week!
Thanks for stopping by today! Have a super day!
supplies used: (all SU! unless noted): Out on a Limb (Papertrey)/Small Sayings (heart) stamp sets; Real Red/Chocolate Chip/Whisper White CS; Real Red/Chocolate Chip/Pretty in Pink ink; Stardust Stickles (Michael's); Chocolate taffeta ribbon

This Sunday is my Valentine Card Class...here is one of the cards we will be making, since we will be making 5 cards and 1 treat container, it looks like this week's blogging will be dedicated to Valentine's Day projects.
I used my new red stripped ribbon, and of course I LOVE it! I am going to have to order all the colors now, lol! I don't know what my obsession is with ribbon and patterned paper, but it is definitely becoming a big problem *wink*.
I have been busy in my craft room all weekend...Mike worked on Saturday, so I was busy creating all day, I even forgot to eat lunch (that is not like me, lol!). I am putting the finishing touches on a digi project that I hope to share with you next week.
I hope you all have a terrific Monday...especially if you have the day off (I wish I did!).
supplies used: (all SU!) So Very stamp set (retired); Whisper White/Real Red/Basic Black CS; Basic Black ink; Red Stripped ribbon; oval punches; corner rounder.

Wednesday I was able to use some of my new stuff...I really like this new SU! set "one of a kind", so I think that I will be using it a lot. When I placed my order I keyed it in twice (don't know what I was doing on that day), see how much I liked it I ordered 2 of them, lol! I sent it back for another set, which will hopefully be on the way to me next week. And check out the Berry Bliss Designer Paper...This is definitely one of my new fav's (I *heart* pink and brown!!!).
I am so glad it is Friday, although I have lots to do...you know the usual stuff (clean, groceries, laundry, iron, STAMP, etc).
I hope you have an Awesome weekend, and I will see you here bright and early on Monday with another post.
I have a neat project in the works...(well still in my brain at the moment), I hope to start working on it next week), a little digi scrapping.

SU! is getting ready for SAB (sale-a-bration) which is Feb 1 - March 17th (send me an email if you want more info about SAB), I LOVE that time of year! I am a little late in ordering my sets (demo's have their benefits, lol!), anyway I heard through the grapevine that these sets are pre-cut! Wow! I am so excited about that!
I needed another birthday card and this set "a little bird told me" seems to be my go to set these days. I think he is so cute, (especially paired with cutie pie paper).
I hope you have a terrific Thursday...(so glad tomorrow is Friday!)

I am still using my Ginger Blossom paper from SU! I (heart) patterned paper and have my SU order arriving today with some new paper (yipee!).
I am going to be hosting a Valentine's Day card class in a couple of weeks, so stay tuned for my projects...I LOVE making Valentine's cards. I was thinking about that the other day...I think that may have been where my love of cards all started. I remember making cards for all my classmates (remember red construction paper and heart doilies?) and one year we all made our own mailboxes out of shoe boxes. We kept those on our desk and then we walked around and delivered our Valentine's to the appropriate mailboxes...so fun! Then I would bring them home and go through them all again...isn't it fun getting cards!
Supplies used: (all SU! unless noted) Embrace Life/Papertrey stamps; Ruby Red/River Rock/Shimmery White CS; Chocolate Chip/Ruby Red/Groovy Guava ink; Blender pen; Ginger Blossom DP; Guava double stitched ribbon; Crystal Effects

Thank goodness I had some cards I hadn't posted yet. This one I made for a friend of mine going through a tough time. I really like the simplicity of it! It is somewhat of a cased card from Kristina Werner (love her stuff!). It is hard to see from the picture but I added stickles to the little hearts...I love sparkly cards!
I hope you have a Marvelous Monday!

Here is a card I made for my niece Allison, here birthday is this Saturday and she is going to be 13 (a teenager). I really love this little bird stamp, and of course the patterned paper (cutie pie).
Today we are having the hole in our ceiling patched and textured (we had a crack in one of the upstairs tubs that leaked right through to the kitchen ceiling), Mike replaced the tub and took care of that part, but is hiring out the sheet-rock and texture part so it will all blend in. I am so happy it will be all finished today! Now I just have to wait for Mike to paint everything...then onto the next project, lol!
I hope you have a wonderful weekend!
See you back here on Monday
Supplies used (all SU!): A Little Birdie Told Me stamp set; Bashful Blue/Certainly Celery/Whisper White CS; Cutie Pie DP; Chocolate Chip ink; Celery Grosgrain Ribbon (non-SU!); notch punch

Today is a half day for me at work...ahhhh! I am going to get my haircut, then home to hopefully clean up my stamping area a little (it looks like a tornado went through my stamp room) and do some stamping...my stamps are feeling neglected these days! I have a few Birthday cards to make and a monogrammed set of cards for my MIL (I promise, I won't post those for a little while, lol!).

I hope you are off to a good start with your resolutions...I don't make them anymore, just because I don't want to let myself down. Instead I set goals (hopefully realistic ones).
Here are a few of mine for 2008:
Read more (Bible and all my new books)
walk 2-3 miles 5 times a week (this kind of took the back seat in December)
Complain less (thanks for the bracelet Sue!)
Be more positive
I did get a lot of things crossed off my to do list yesterday, and have lots more for today, I did some stamping yesterday and plan on doing some more today...so stay tuned for some new projects.
I am updating my blog for 2008, so please be patient if the colors and format change over the next few days.
See you here on Wednesday with some new stuff!
