Happy "I" Do

Good afternoon stamping friends! Hope ya'll are doing well so far today. Beautiful day here in SW MO again. Almost 80 degrees with some wind. I do believe we have thunderstorms on the horizon though. But for now, it's beautiful out.

Todays card is one that I got inspiration from Jan Tink over at
I will tell ya though, I do like Jan's better than mine. I'm just not to wild about the "bells" yet. Not sure if it is the way I have them positioned or what. So I might be changing it up a little later tonight and repost it. We'll see.

Details for the card are:

Stamp Set~~Word Play
Cardstock~~Whisper White, Black and Bride Specialty Paper (retired)
Ink~~Black Stazon
Misc~~Round Tab Punch, Ticket Corner Punch, Basic Rhinestones,Scribbles Swirls Sizzlet Die and Whisper White Organza Ribbon

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

Happy First Day of Spring!!!

Good afternoon stampers! What a beautiful day it is here in SW MO! The temps are close to 80 with a breeze, just enough from keeping it really hot. How's your Sunday going? Enjoy the beautiful weather!

Today, I thought I'd share the swap cards I made for the Branson Regionals back in February. What a blast. Seeing old friends along with making new ones. Got some great tips and tricks to use with our SU products. I can't wait to get busy and try some. My swap cards are based on another card that I shared earlier, just didn't use the ribbon. And EVERYONE loved them. I have only a handful left out of 100 that I took. Got some great ones in return that I will be casing later on. What a great experience going to regionals, if it's for 1/2 day or a full day, you won't be dissappointed going to an SU event. And I must say dinner afterwards was a HOOT! What great memories!

Swap card details:
Stamp Set: On Your Birthday
Cardstock: Whisper White, Concord Crush, Pretty in Pink, Melon Mambo and Rich Razzleberry
Ink: Concord Crush, Pretty in Pink, Melon Mambo and Rich Razzleberry
Misc: Perfect Polka Dots EB Folder, Beautiful Wings Embosslit Die, Pearls and Dotted Scallop Ribbon Border

That's all from me today. Going to enjoy the beautiful weather! Have a great day and THANKS SO MUCH for stopin by.

Sympathy Card CASE

Good afternoon stamping friends. Hope this finds you all doing well. It's a cloudy/chilly day here in SW MO. Suppose to rain later today. And SPRING is on it's way, only 2 more days. I still haven't gotten used to the time change. Wished they would just leave it alone!

Today's card is a CASE from Dawn Olchefske over at . Dawn does such awesome work. I had to try using the SU Lattice Die to make the cross. How awesome is that! Would work great for an Easter card also, hope to try that later today. But I needed 2 Sympathy cards to send and this just fit what I needed. THANKS Dawn for your awesome inspiration and tutorial/you tube videos. Sorry that the picture isn't the greatest, don't have good natural lighting since we have such a cloudy day.

Stamp Set: Thanks for Caring
Cardstock: Very Vanilla, Soft Suede, Crumb Cake, Baja Breeze and Elegant Soiree DSP
