Another day...another card

Wanted to share a card that I made while Monica was over yesterday. We had an awesome time stamping, going out to lunch and chit chatting. I've got a few cards to upload but will only show you two today.

I used the SU! A Flower for All Seasons and Circle of Friendship for this one. My papers are barely banana (I think), white and the green is from Bazzill.

My owl card uses a Stampabilites stamp and the ribbon came from Hobby Lobby. I made a boo boo on the bottom corner and ended up just tearing off the corner. I slapped a piece of choc. chip paper on the corner and really ended up liking the end result. I have to say, this card is really one of my favorites. Don't know what it is, maybe the colors, but I really like it.

Oops...sorry about scanning it so crooked...I forgot to straighten it.

It is raining here right now so the school has cancelled our soccer game for tonight and also for tomorrow. Guess they are expecting a lot of rain the next couple of days. The children are out of school now for spring break. I swear it gets earlier and earlier every year. We are not going anywhere this year. Makes me sad, but we did just come back from the beach two weeks ago. That was fun and the weather cooperated with us!

Have a great day...

I don't have a card to share tonight. I've been busy with my son's soccer and other domestic duties. Hope to stamp tomorrow or for sure on Thursday. It has been great having Monica come over every Thursday for a day of crafting. At least that way I know that I get one good day of stamping and chit chatting.

Hope to have something creative to share in the next couple of days.

First card uploaded

I've finally made it back to my blog. Pretty cool sounding since I'm still a newby at this. Today I am going to try and upload my card. Here it goes.... Ok, I'm seeing it...whoohooo!

I made this for my neighbor's friend in Texas who is a SU! demonstrator. We just received our order and I wanted to thank her. I wanted to use some of my new toys...stamps and photo punch.

I used a cream card stock as my card base. I added black and brocade blue for my layers. The stamp is from SU! Pun Fun. I colored the image using my prisma pencils and OMS. I cuttlebugged my perfect plum paper with the swirls embossing folder and added ribbon for a little dimension; used the SU! corner punch and some brads for additional details. The edges were sponged with brocade blue and black.

Have a great day...

First Time

This is my first time to ever blog. Must admit I'm pretty clueless about what to do, where to start, how to add pictures, etc. Hopefully through trial and error I will be able to at least put some cards on here.

It is late now but hopefully next week I'll have more time to play around with this. I'm off to Orange Beach, AL this week. My daughter and I are going to watch my son play in a soccer tournament.

Have a great day,
