Love This Embossing Folder!

Here is a card that I created from my friend Cindy Grantham's last on-line class. I have been blessed to be asked to help be a designer for her next on-line class as well! If you are interested you can click on the Cindy's Stamping Garden blinkie over to the right. I hope you will all have a wonderful and safe Memorial Day weekend! We are off camping this weekend--YAHOO!

I thought I would just add a quick note here: If you are on a blog for the first time, if you click on a photo you will see a larger picture of that picture.


It has been a while since I last posted so I thought I had better get another on before everyone thinks I have crawled under a rock some where. This card I did from an inspiration challenge that was on U Stamp. It was a different style for me but I think it turned out "delicious"!

Swap Sisters Fun!

Last night on Swap Sisters we had a live tutorial with Sherri. We had a lot of fun. Something I have never done before as we had to make a card as per described with out knowing what the end look would be! So, in other words, we did our stamping blind so to speak! It was a lot of fun but I was very tired as it did not start until 11 p.m. and we went until 1 A.M.!!!! I used Bermuda Bay for a monochromatic look.

This is the 2nd challenge that we did. We had to make a card using punches and only a greetings set. I used the Boho Blossoms punch, the Ornament punch, Med. Jewelry Tag punch and Tiny Tags set. I also scored the white cs to make it look like wayne's coating.
I was asked by Cindy to be a designer for her class that she did on-line. This is from one of the challenges we did. I created my own DSP with stamps that I thought resembled the Sweet Pea DSP that we were using for her class. What do you think? Does it look like DSP? I used Trendy Trees set, the Cornelli Lace JW and Bella Toile BG.
Another from Cindy's class. This one I used the Well Scripted set from the Ocassions Mini Catalog that just ended. I also used the Tea Party DSP.
Another card made from my friend Cindy's class. This one I used the Razzle Dazzle set and the Razzleberry Lemonade Dsp.

2 in one day!

I am actually doing another post! I know! I can't believe it either! I think I have this watermark thing down pat now. Let's see if I can get this posting almost every day down! (Don't hold your breathe).

I have some more fun cards to post that I did for the class I did with my friend Cindy.

This is a gate fold card using the Animal Stories set and Tall Tales DSP from Stampin Up!.

Sorry Friends

I would just like to appologize for being awhile since I last made a post. Life has been rather crazy here for the past month but I am breathing a little easier now. I am sure NONE of you can relate to that--LOL! I have been really trying to broaden my parameters as of late once again. I am teaching myself how to add a watermark to my pictures. I am hoping you can see it in this post.

I was recently attending an on-line class of a now very good friend and co-demonstrator Cindy Grantham. This Lady is AWESOME! She held an on-line class and we had such a good time. This picture is one sample that I made for her class. It used a set that was available ONLY during Sale-a-bration and also uses one of my favorite DSP's Cottage Wall. I hope you enjoy!
