My attempt at Clean

I love this Designer Paper from SU. Actually, there is very few of SU Designer paper that I do not LOVE!! I have loads of it and am trying to use some of it up (to make room for more hahaha). Here is a card I made last week using some DP I found in a box in my stamping room. I love the paper piecing technique. I am sure you can tell as I have done a ton of it lately.

I love when others make these clean, simple cards. Mine just looks bland to me. Anyway...this is my attmept at a clean linear type card. Let me know what you think.

I have been working nights again this week so little stamping gets done when that happens!! Hope to get some done Sunday so check back soon!

My Favorite

This card was for a SCS color challenge several weeks ago. The color combo was Black, Kraft, and Soft Skies. I knew this was a great combo but only got around doing this until Saturday.
I always tell my children they are my favorite children in the world. They laugh and tell me they have to be my favorite because they are mine. But I think they like to hear it.
My DS will be 18 years old Friday. I think I will give him this card. It seems it was only yesterday that I was at the hospital delivering him. Where in the world did 18 years go?
He wants to have a birthday party at my mother and dad's house. This thrilled them. I am looking forward to this night. I feel like I have almost made it. He is a fine young man and he is my favorite (and my only) son.

Hope your weekend was GREAT!

This card was for a challenge on SCS for the 4th of July!! I love how this card turned out! This is one of my new sets from MFT. It's called "Can Ya Dig It?" I could not wait to ink it up!
The paper used is Rusty Pickle I picked up at a Scrapbook convention last year. It works perfectly for the 4th.
My DD spent the 4th of July in Washington D.C. She got to see the fireworks on the mall at D.C. I think that would be great. I hope she had a great time!! My DS had to work on the 4th and was plenty mad about it!! He fell asleep on the couch at home before 9pm. His girlfriend came over and spent some time with him. That put him in a little better mood. We cooked out but it was really hot here!! Hope your weekend was wonderful!

One more today!

I bought a bunch of Bellas last week and have been inking them up on a regular basis!! I also went to Hobby Lobby Thursday and saw this precious"It's a Girl thing" stamp. I thought it really fit in well with my new Bellas. I had a bunch of fun at Hobby Lobby and bought this new Cuddlebug folder also!! They should pay my gas as much money as I spent. hahaha
I really was eyeing the Cricut Expression but just cannot let myself spend that kind of money right now!! I have a son about to go to college in August. I know that will not be cheap!! and having a 16 year old daughter is expensive anyway you look at it. I guess I am just glad the HL is 100 miles away!!

Been a while

I few weeks ago there was a sketch challenge on SCS that I loved. This is my rendition of it. I love these bees. I got this great Euphoria paper from Basic Grey from my Secret Sister over at SCS. I have about 10 cards I photoed today. I hate to add them all at the same time. I am working a bunch next week so I need to do them today.
I have been doing a bunch of stamping the last week and have some new Rubbah coming from SU next week! I bought several of the preview and hostess stamps. Why are new stamps better than the older ones??
I hope my Secret Sister sees what I did with my Wonderful paper!!

Frank Lloyd Wright

Yesterday on SCS the inspiration was several Frank Lloyd Wright windows. They were beautiful and very inspirational. I made this card to submit. I used the All about You stamp set from SU. I also used Embossing powder on the U.
I have been working alot of nights which gives me extra time to stamp when I am off work. I have done about 15 cards in the last three days. I have had so much fun just stamping away. I hope to upload several in the next few days so be sure and check back soon.....

Pretty card

I think this is one of the prettiest card I have ever made. I did not get may comments on SCS. I live for those comments. I did this card for Beate's challenge this weekend. I bought this BasicGrey paper a while back. I love it and have been waiting to use it---hoarding perhaps?? Anyway, I knew Ruby Red and Chocolate Chip would be perfect with it. The stamps are form Fresh Cuts (Stampin' Up) Please leave a comment. Does it need something different? I took another picture than the one on SCS to better highlight it. Like I said, I love it. I plan to use it soon to thank someone who has really helped me the last year!
