Colorado Stampers Challenge #2

Here is the 2nd installment of the Colorado Stampers Challenge. This time the challenge was to use Pacific Point, Real Red, Pink Pirouette, and Whisper White.

Here is my take:

This card was super simple and easy, but still it is cute. The sentiment is from SU Define Your Life, and the small border is from Inkainkadoo. The embellies are just from my stash.

Anyway, we are pretty much recovered from the snow storm last week, thanks to great weekend weather!! I just wish summer was already here as we got a little more snow this morning and the forecast calls for more this week. I will just hang in there, and hopefully use the time to stamp as with summer we are always 'on the go'.

Have a wonderful night!

Baby Shower Cards

This is just a quick post this morning as I have a lot of shoveling to do today! We finally got a hit of winter in Colorado yesterday. We had a light blizzard yesterday, and at my house we probably got around 14 inches of snow. YUCK! But we had such a mild winter we really need the oh well, I will deal.

Here is the card I made for my sister's friends's baby shower. They turned out to be more time consuming than I originally thought. Lots of different layers, and although I only made 25, they just seemed to have taken forever, where I feel that I have neglected all my other goodies in my craft room. I actually just got a BIG SU order a couple of weeks ago and haven't played with any of it!!

If you want any of the deets on this card just let me know, as my snow shovel is calling me. Have a great Friday!

Hi all!

I had every intention of posting a picture both last night and now tonight, but I am sooooo frustrated!! I waste sooooo much time trying to upload pictures on this blogger. I am not sure what the trouble is, but EVERY time I download a picture it "cuts off" half the pic or changes the color or blurs the photo. When I just look at the picture on my computer and camera it is fine. I am not sure where in the downloading process it gets all jumbled.

Anyway, I am tired of trying again tonight. I have tried downloading the same 2 pictures about 10 times with no luck...ANY SUGGESTIONS???

Well, off the computer for me tonight...I guess I will try again tomorrow...

Have a great night!!

New Camper!!

Hi All! Just a quick update! Sorry I have been so MIA lately, but I confess I have a little of the OCD syndrome. My Dh and I have decided to start looking for a new camper...YIPPEE!!! So I have been totally consumed by this. Everyday I either go look at a dealer or two, or at night I am constantly looking at different ones online, I even haven't been sleeping to well over this...It is so bad, but my life is revolving around shopping for a new camper right now. I look at this way...I am doing MY part to help jumpstart the US economy, lol. Anyway, we may have found the one we hopefully I will be back to posting more often soon...

I will keep you updated and will hopefully have pics soon...Have a great Thursday!!

Oh, How Time Flies! & 1st Colorado Stamping Challenge

Oh my goodness, where does the time go? I cannot believe I have not posted on my blog in a week! What the heck is wrong with me? No really, I am sorry but I have been so busy...I just do not know where the time goes. I barely even stamped this hoo. I am actually working on some Baby Shower invites for my sister's close friend...I will post them hopefully in a day or two. I also received a big SU order this week, I am twitterpated, but I have not even had a chance to play with all my new goodies...What is a girl to do?

Anyway, I am part or a new group from Colorado. It is a stamping challenge group similar to my lovely LSC friends. I do not think we have even finalized on a name yet...but anyhow, I first challenge was due today. It was an inspiration challenge using a photo Stephanie found at Pottery barn. Isn't it pretty?

Well, here is my take on it. What do you think? I used SU Baja Breeze, Old Olive, So Saffron, Ruby Red, and Very Vanilla. The images are from Inkainkadoo (sp?). I distressed the edges of the top two layers and pop dotted them for interest. The large brad and small one are from my stash. I am pleased on how the card turned out. Even though I stapped out of my norm and actually did not do something with a flower...that is a rare occasion for me, lol.

Well, have a great night an d wonderful week. I hope to post more this week!

LSC # 30

Good Evening!

Here is my take for LSC #30. The LSC ladies challenge was to use butterflies. All I have to say is YUMMY, doesn't that mean spring is on the way!! The colors are SU Wild Wasabi and Lovely Lilac. The DSP is SU and the stamps are from Flight of the Butterfly. Sorry, but in the picture the ribbon looks wavy, but rest asure it is straight, I don't know what the pic did.

Anyway, back to the daily grind tomorrow...yippee! Have a great week!

RV and Boat show!!

Hi All!

Happy Friday to one and all! Just a quick post tonight as I am tired and ready to slumber in dream land...

Hope everyone has a great weekend planned. My DH and I and a couple of friends ventured out tonight to the annual RV and Boat Show in Denver. I love going to those and peeking my head in all the crazy big and beautiful RV's. Who are people kidding though, those things are NOT for CAMPING!! It is like staying in a 5 star hotel...but I guess that wouldn't be so bad, *giggle*. I will say though, when I go camping the LAST thing I want to do is watch TV! I will continue to go camping in our no frills (not even a bathroom) little pop-up camper and enjoy it as much as the next guy...

Anyway, I will quit rambling now, we had fun...

Chat at ya soon!

Happy Tuesday!

Good Evening! I hope everyone's week is going well. The weather here in Colorado is beautiful this week. I think it got to 75 degrees today...that is crazy!!! Boy, am I ready for summer and this weather is such a tease...

Well, this card I made for my mom for her Birthday which was today! I already have this card posted over at Stamp TV but thought why not post it here also. The deets are SU paper in Certainly Celery, Old Olive, White and DSP Berry Bliss. The image is from Peaceful Wishes (I know a Christmas set...I am out of control...) and the sentiment is SU also but I don't have the name off hand. The baubles are Stamping bella and the ribbon and flower are out of my stash. Lastly, I (of course) used my nesties for the ovals.

Anywhoo (is that a word,lol?) have a great night...I will hopefully post again tomorrow...if not Happy Hump Day!
