Yet another Baroque Motif…

This card design was cased from someone else, but I changed the colors and greeting and also added those weird semi-circle brads!
I used my Stamp-a-ma-jig to line up the flowers because there is no way I could have done that on my own!!  If you don’t know what the stamp-a-ma-jig is you can find my tutorial here!  The colors I used were from last years In Colors.  Tomorrow the 30th is the last day that you can order these, then they will be retired forever!  The colors are:  Cranberry Crisp, Marigold Morning, True Thyme.  I used the Ticket corner punch on the greeting.

I also made a "Mr. Crabby Pants" card, as Dawn would say, but it escaped out the door to a bday party before I got a picture of it!  I’ll have to make some more!

Until Next Time…Happy Creating!!!

Baroque Petals…

My Baroque Motifs set came yesterday.  I’m not sure why I didn’t order it the first time!  This is such an elegant set.  I’m not sure it really fits me, but I do like it.Baroque_and_petals
I know I’m going to have fun with the Pick a Petal set.  This is the second of the flowers that I already had cut out from the other day.  This is what I did with it!

Karen’s Party!

F_is_for_flowersAfter Choir practice last night we all went into the church office to celebrate Karen’s Bday.  I thought I’d post a couple of the pics from it.  She was very surprised, but she had a great time!!!
If you haven’t seen the book I made for this party you can see it here, then you’ll understand these pictures better!!

This is F is for Flowers.


S is for streamers!  We had a few streamers hung around the office for decoration, but we thought she should be decorated as well!  Look at that cute Blondie in the background!  She belongs to me!!!


T is for Tiara.  Of course the bday queen needed to have a bday tiara.  She would hate this picture because I think she was talking when I took it! 

It was a lot of fun and we didn’t even get home until 11:00pm.  I never keep my kids out that late.  I had to wake up my daughter this morning because we had to be at the dentist by 9:40.  I think I could even use a nap from being up that late!!!

Happy 57th Birthday Karen!

Pick A Petal Card 2!

Dsc05776Well here is the card that I said I needed to finish.  I had the flower done a couple of days ago and needed to put it on the card.  The flower is stamped with white craft ink and embossed on Purely Pomegranate.  The center of the flower and the card base is Groovy Guava.  I accented with Black and the green polka dot paper is from DCWV Nana’s Kids paper stack.  I stamped the flower center around on the card base with my versamark ink pad also.

Until Next Time….Happy Creating!!!

I was really hoping to find my Demo copy of the new catalog today but that wasn’t the case.  I am still hoping the big brown truck stops by later too!  I’m still not holding my breath about that either!  Since I seem to be in a rut of not getting what I want (or am waiting for!), I do have one bit of good mail that I received today!!!


I was so excited when I stumbled across these new stamps when I was checking out Gina K Designs!  You know how the craze for the scalloped punches has been lately!  Well, Gina K has designed some doodles to use with those punches!  I’m not the greatest doodler (is that really a word?), but I love the look.  Of course since I have the circle, oval and square punches, I needed all three stamp sets as well!!!

Until Next Time….Happy Creating (and punching!)

Pick A Petal Butterfly…

Dsc05760Here is the first card that I have completed with the new Pick A Petal stamp set from Stampin Up!  This is going to be a fun set to play with.  I have a couple of flowers made but haven’t finished the cards.  Maybe I can do that today and post them later.  My kids want to go to the community center and swim or "work out" this afternoon, so we’ll see!  I think I will give this one to Karen tonight at Choir practice because we will be celebrating her bday then also.

Colors used are:  Tempting Turquoise and Barely Banana.
Stamp sets used:  Pick a Petal, Happy Everything
Accessories: Ticket punch, silver brads, googly eyes! Cuttlebug embossing folder
