Happy B*Day

Good Afternoon stampers. I know it's been awhile since I've posted anything....sorry! I've been some of you know, my sister-in-law has been in the hospital on life supports. I am happy to report that she is doing fine...she has been transfered from the hospital to rehab. So my trips to Ark. have been considerably less. And I have been working feverishly on a swap for demos. I had to make 29! Finally got them done and they are mailed. Not to mention also, hubby is home! But I'm hoping ya'll are having a great Wednesday. It's a beautiful day here. Windows and doors are open.....ahhh nothing like good ole fresh air.

Today, I'm sharing a quick card we did at SAS. We started with Basic Black Cardstock followed by Whisper White. We stamped the image with Black Stazon. And then matted that on Black c/s. Add a Black Grosgrain ribbon. We did use a MS punch (shhhh, most of my girls have this punch anyways). Added a strip of Black c/s and it's done. The inside is done just like the outside, minus the senitment.

That's it for today. Hope you have a great day. THANKS so much for stoppin by. If you are on my blog lists, I promise I will get around to your blogs this weekend. I haven't forgotten, just been busy.

Happy Stampin,

Christmas in August

Good afternoon everyone! Hope ya'll are having a great Saturday. It's yet another HOT day here in SW MO. I'm so looking forward to fall. I just can't hardly stand the heat as I get older.

Todays card is a simple Christmas card that I'll use in one of my SAS. I started out with a piece of Cherry Cobbler (love that color), then some Old Olive and a piece of Jolly Holiday DSP. Using the Top Note Die, I cut a piece of Cherry Cobbler and Very Vanilla (folded). I cut the edges off the Very Vanilla and layered onto the Cherry Cobbler. I sponged Cherry Cobbler on the Very Vanilla edges. Stamped the tree in Old Olive from Holiday Happiness, then using my stampamajig, stamped the ornaments in Daffodile Delight and Cherry Cobbler. I didn't like the way the star looked at the top of the tree just stamped, so I punched a star from Daffodile Delight cardstock and popped it up with a pop dot. Added some bling and ribbon/bow made with the bow easy. For the inside, I stamped "Happy Holidays" from Holiday Happiness in Cherry Cobbler. I really love the way the card opens up with the top note folded. What do ya think?

That's it for today. Have a great weekend, and THANKS so much for stoppin by.

Life Happens

Good rainy day! We got some much needed rain here in SW MO, unfortunally, it hasn't lasted very long. It's still a gloomy day out and very humid now. Hope you are having a great Wednesday.

Today I'm sharing an "almost" case that was posted on Stampin Connection by Jenn, her blog is . I just loved this card and knew I had to try one. This card is a "Z fold", very easy to do. Cut your cardstock at 5.5 x 11 then score at 4" and 6 3/4". I did change up the colors a bit and used a different sentiment than Jenn did. The card folded up is a 5 1/2 x 5 1/2.

Card details are:
Stamp Sets: Aviary and Full of Live
Cardstock: Whisper White and Basic Black
Ink: Marina Blue, Daffodil Delight, Concord Crush, Poppy Parade and Black Stazon
Misc: Stampamajig

That's it from me today. Have a great day. And THANKS so much for stoppin by.

Happy Stampin,

P.S. I just now realized that I didn't put any "BLING" on my card...I am going to add some to the top of the bird cage. GRRRR!!! Hate it when I forget something as important as "BLING"....LOL
