My First Stamp Camp!!

OMGosh!!! I went to my first stamp camp today in my area, and all I have to say is YIPPEE!!! It was a blast! Thanks to my "new" cruise friends, Karen and Ann, for inviting me...I had so much fun, plus it was great to see these wonderful ladies again for the first time since our great cruise last October. I can't wait to go to the next Stamp Camp in a couple of weeks.

Anyway, here is a quickie post for a card I made last weekend too. I know, I know, I say I am going to post more during the week but life always gets in the way and I get too busy...

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.

Have a great night and wondeful Sunday! I hope to spend a good amount of time in my Stamp room :) :)

Thumpidity Thump Thump

Happy Hump Day!

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!!

Make Life Big!

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 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.

LSC #28

Hi Ladies!

Today is Friday and thst means another LSC challenge. I am once again going to join in their fun and do the challenge as well. This week's challenge was to use Kraft and a shade of Pink, and get this, NO ribbon! Sometimes I wonder if these ladies are crazy!! It is so hard to not use ribbon on a card, sometimes it makes the finishing touch.
Here is my creation:

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!

Loopy Flower

Good Evening!

Sorry I have been MIA so much lately, but it seems as though when the week winds down and the weekend is upon me, I have either been busy, busy, busy or unfortunately fighting some kind of ailment. I know, Jolene, quit complaining and just get on with it...Needless to say, I have been lacking in the ol' stamp room, boo-hoo! I hope to have some free time this weekend and hopefully not be sick either!

Anyway, I thought I would at least post a card I made in Indy with Dani last month. This was actually a B-day card for my new friend, Wendy whom I met on the cruise. Anyway, I made a few of these and each was a little different.

The quick deets on this card is SU CS, DSP and ribbon by The Paper Studio, and best of all the adorable stamp is Stampingbella and the baubles too. Oh, I also colored the image with SU markers and Stickles.

Have a great night and week!

Dog Sitting & Whoo Hoo!

Happy Thursday to everyone. I hope everyone is having a good week, and has a wonderful weekend planned. Anything special plans for Valentines?

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, 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.

Hey Chicky!

Happy Sunday to everyone!

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???

Superbowl and LSC #25

Happy Superbowl Sunday All!!

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.
This weeks colors (my version anyway) were Chocolate Chip, Pink Passion, So Saffron, and Perfect Plum. Boy, this was an extremely tough challenge for me. I would like to blame it on my cold and my meds, ha ha, but really, I just had no mojo for this week's color combo. So bear with me, as this is obviously not my finest work...
Well have a great evening and I will post more soon...
