Then I'll have to wait for more. I love snow but not the ice. So if you are travelin, stay safe. If not, stay warm.
Todays card, I wanted to use some thing I hadn't used in awhile...Basic Gray. I love this color. I also used Rose Red and Whisper White. This card meets the Wednesday Sketch challenge over at SCS, I just haven't posted over there yet.
So easy to make and I love the colors and crispness. Also used my new stamp set Eastern Blooms and the sentiment is out of One of a Kind stamp set. The flowers were made using the Trio Flower Punch. To make them stand out, I put the end of a pen in the center and "curled" the petals up, and then finished them off with half pearl stickers.
That's it for today. Hope you have a good evening.

Hope we get some snow soon. So far it's been a mild winter.
Here is a card I CASED from SCS. I did change a few things. I added the sentiment, ribbon and the dew drops. I used Black and Whisper White cardstock along with Bella Rose DSP. I also used my Cuttlebug with the Stylized Flowers folder.
Riding Hood Red and Black Stazon ink was used.
The stamp set I used is "Always" from SU.
I hope you like it. Makes for a great Valentine card to that special someone in your life.
This is all for now....stay warm and safe and always,

Can you believe Valentines Day is just around the corner? Seems like Christmas was just yesterday.
This card is just like the Baja Breeze card, only in Riding Hood Red and Very Vanilla. I just love this card. There aren't too many cards I say that I love, especially the ones I make. But this one, I just keep looking at it.
If you like/love this card, you will find the supplies to use it at my next SAS on Jan 10. You'll get to make one of your own.
Well, I got some stampin goodies today, so I'm off to play. Maybe I'll have something "pretty" tomorrow for ya all to see.
Enjoy your evening, stay warm and keep stampin,

On Saturday Jan 3, 09, we had a Shoebox Swap Workshop. We all had a blast. Each person brought a shoebox filled with enough supplies for each person to make a card. We had quite the variety, from Swell News to Birthday.
From the left back....Snappy Birthday was designed by Amber, she used Crab & Company. Thinking of You was designed by Debbie, she used Pocket Silhouettes. Next Reina used On the Fly and Lois used A Light unto My Path. On the bottom (laying flat) on the left Carol used Friendship Blooms and last but not least Tiffiny, she used Swell News. Each card was different and just awesome.
A great time was had by all.
Hope you are having a great day. Until tomorrow,

Well as you can tell.....I didn't get Elvis inked up last night. This card is for a customer who needed a birthday card for her sister. I thought this card was perfect and it was fun and easy to do.
I used Crazy for Cupcakes stamp set from SU. The other supplies I used are PaperTrey White, SU Bella Rose DSP and Pink Prouette card stock. The ribbon is SU Riding Hood Red taffeta ribbon.
I also used Robins Nest Dew Drops, Clear Glitter on the "frosting", Cystal Effects on the "cherry on top" and some popdots. For the coloring of the cupcakes I used Watercolor Crayons. Note to self: Use those more...the are so easy to work with and the result is really nice. I'm sure that you might have seen something like this on SCS, where would we be without all that inspiration on SCS. But this is a case, but not a direct case. I left off some ribbon that the orginal artist had on her card.
You might attend your next SAS event if you like/love this card, it might be in a box coming your way for you to create your own.
This is all for today. Hope you all have a great wonderful weekend. Til tomorrow.........

Good Afternoon everyone. I hope you had a safe and sound New Years. Any resolutions made yet? I've made a couple. I want to lose some weight and I am going to get better at sending cards out and get better with updating my blog on a more daily basis. So we'll see which resolution I keep better.
The weather is awesome here in SW MO. It's about 70 today. But we are looking at a cold front coming in late Saturday...ugh! I'm lovin' these nice days, yes I love snow, but I'm not lovin' the electric bill. I don't get a bail out check...LOL so gotta pay it.
Speaking of cards? Did ya see this one? Well, my good friend Vicki, made one similar to this. You can see it at http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/gallery/photo/1158983?cat=500&ppuser=81814 and also on her blog http://itsastampthing-vicki.blogspot.com/
Supplies used are: Baja Breeze, Whisper White, Urban Garden DSP, Baja Breeze stripped ribbon, Cuttlebug with the Heart Block folder, Cricut Alphalious cartiridge for the envelope, popdots, and Baja Breeze ink and 1/2 pearls. It looks so much better IRL. Watch for this card, it may show up at a Stamp A Stack near you very soon . What I love about this card, you can use it for Valentine's Day, a wedding or anniversary card. It just depends on what you need it for and what you put inside.
Well that's it for today. Got some Elvis mail today, so I'm going to be stampin me some Elvis. And as you have seen on Vicki's blog, she is still stampin Elvis. I just hope that there is still some images to stamp out on him when he returns home. Maybe I need to play that song..."Return to Sender" address NOT unknown. LOL
