Just a note...

Hi all, I just wanted to drop a note to say that I won't be posting this week. It is a crazy week with school ending and kids running here and there and then we had a death in the family. Soooo, stamping has had to take a back seat to life this week. Hope all is well with you. Check out the Diva Challenge and play along.

DCBD Challenge #127

OK, here is our fantastic sketch for today. Isn't this cool. I just love doing sketches. Remember, they don't have to be exactly like this. The sketch is just a jumping off point. I reversed the sentiment and the embellishment. Here is what I came up with...

OK, here is how I made this:
Card stock: Naturals Ivory, Bravo Burgandy, Apricot Appeal, Very Vanilla and Mellow Moss.
I used Bravo Burgandy Ink
Stamp Set: All Holidays
Accessories: Star Punch and 1 3/8" circle punch

Now it's your turn. Get out there and create a card. Down load it to your blog or a gallery and then head over to the Diva's Blog. There use Mr. Linky to attach your card to share it with us all! Can't wait to see what you come up with!

I Got Mail!!

This is a birthday card from dear Mom! Isn't it pretty?

This card is from my downline, Kelly. She is so talented, and she just started stamping about a year ago. This card is so cute, I love the colors and everything. Thanks Kelly!

I received this card from one of the Late Night Stampers! This is a fantastic Yahoo group if you are looking for great ideas and friendship. Anyway, this card comes from Janis! I just love the colors!

One thing that I have realized this week is that getting cards in the mail rocks! I'm going to send some cards out to my friends on a more regular basis. I challenge you to do the same. You will be amazed by how great it makes others feel.

DCBD Challenge #126

Hi Stampers! It is time for the weekly DCBD challenge. This weeks challenge is to use the Big Shot! I love this thing!

Here's what I came up with. Actually this is a CASE from my downline, Kelly! Thanks Kelly for the great idea!


This card features the Sunshine Gardern Simply Scrappin' Kit. I love using these kits to make cards, but I never do! Guess it's time to shake things up! I used a base of So Saffron and Certainly Celery ink. I also used a clear rhinestone brad in the center of the flower.

Stamp sets used are Petal Pizzazz and All Holidays.

OK, now it is your turn. Go make a card using the Big Shot, post it on your blog or a gallery, and then go to the Diva's blog and post it using Mr. Linky. Come on, it'll be fun!!!
