I CASED this card from the new SU catty. I used the Garden greetings set and SU CS Cameo Coral, DSP So Saffron, and Baja Breeze ribbon. The Scallop circle is a nestie, the baubles are Stamping Bella and the tag is Making Memories. This card is for my niece's b-day this week.

Just thought I would post another quickie post on a card I made this past weekend. This was actually the first one I made with the Thumping technique over at Stamp Tv. I don't have much time for deets but the Stamp Images and paper are SU with exception of the white is Gina K's pure luxury CS. I used SU markers and the DSP is from my stash.
For my first Thumping job, I am very pleased with this card!
Have a great night!!

Happy Sunday! What a nice and relaxing day it is! Hope everyone is enjoying their day and weekend.
I had so much fun spending time in my stamp room this weekend. I had an opportunity to spend a little time in there Friday, Saturday, and today! How fun it is!!
The above card I made yesterday using Gina K's Thumping technique she taught on her new Stamp TV.com...congrats to her!!! Anyway, I absolutely love thumping and you will see many more cards with that tecnique I am sure of this. This card uses SU Not Quite Navy, Always Artichoke, and Mellow Moss. I used SU stamp set Best Regards. The DP is some I had in my stash. The ribbon is SU Navy, and the metal accents are 7Gypsies.
Thanks for stopping by, I hope to post more of what I made this weekend in the upcoming days.

I actually made this card for my childhood friend's daughter. It is her first birthday next week. I think it turned out cute! The deets are SU Pretty in Pink, Kraft, Chocolate Chip and White. The image and sentiment are also SU, as is the DSP. I added a few eyelets and some pink bling for a finishing touch.
Thanks ladies for another great challenge!

Well, my cousin and her DH and DD are in Thailand for 3 weeks on vacation and I have been lucky enough to have her beagle, Chip, as a guest in my home. He is a very sweet dog. However, my two doggies and him are not the best of friends...they all tolerate each other. He has been with us for a week and now tomorrow he goes to my aunts home. It is bittersweet...he is so sweet and cute, but that beagle howl is enough to drive me crazy! I am happy to have Bassets.
Anyway, here is a quick card I whipped together for my BIL's b-day this past week. It is very simple but I think it is so cute. Owls are big in stamping these days, so I was excited when I remembered I had this stamp in one of my SU sets (a set that I had never used...boo-hoo, I have too many of those sets...yikes...don't tell my DH).
The deets are SU paper Chocolate Chip, Creamy Caramel, Really Rust, and white. SU scallop border punch, Bazzill ribbon, Bella's dots, and Stickles. I colored the image with pencils and mineral spirits (shocker!), and another shocker! the CB folder!
Have a great evening, I hope to post more soon.

I have had every intention of posting some cards this past week, with no luck! I have either been too busy, or blogger was going too slow, or worst yet, I took a nasty fall down the stairs at my home on Wednesday and banged up my right arm pretty good. Besides some big nasty bruises and some sore muscles I am actually doing good now. I am lucky I did not break any bones...yikes!
Anyway, here is a quick little card I made for Dani's little girl's b-day. She turned 3 on Friday!
The deets are SU Yo Yo Yellow, Pumpkin Pie paper and Gina K's pure luxury white 120 #. The stamp is H and M Stamps. The ribbon is SU, and of course CB folder. I colored the image with pencils and the mineral spirits.
I hope everyone has a great Sunday. I cannot decide if I want to spend some time in my craft room (of course, I WANT to), but I may just be lazy and watch movies too...Hmmmm???

I am sitting in my living room with my DH, my BIL, and niece watching/listening to the half time show with Bruce Springsteen. I love the 80's!!
Anyway, the past couple of days I spent most the time in bed fighting a horrible cold. I have been absolutely miserable. But today I am starting to feel a little better. So I finally did a little (I mean little) cleaning today and of course made a couple of cards. I will try to post them throughout the week, but tonight I will post my LSC challenge one.
