Countryside....last couple of days to get it!!!!!!

Happy Wednesday!!!!!!!!!!!

WOW we are having the most peculiar spring ever with tons of rain, I know I should not complain as there are places in the world that would just love to have even just a little bit and here I am complaining
All the same I would really enjoy a sunny warm beautiful day...anytime now.....whatever

Okay so I have been very bad at posting regularily and I promise this is going to stop...things are settling down around here, my father who is only a young 61 has been giving us all a few scares but he seems to be on the mend and I feel more relaxed with him feeling more relaxed so I look forward to getting into my beloved scraproom and creating again.

I am excited to be able to go to a craft fair very soon sooooo I have tons of ideas going through my head ( doesn't help that I just looked over all of my BFF and fellow stampin up demo and well lets just say WOW) anyways June is going to come very quickly so I need to get my butt in gear.

First though I need to get some sleep as I have an early morning at school to make some fruit kabobs for the snack program.

Good night and happy stamping

Happy Thursday to you all

Happy because we get to have kids home and hubby home for an extra couple days.  Kids and I will be having a little campout in the basement with movies, monday we will be getting together with my BFF who just happens to be the mother of my kids friends as well.  We have not gotten together for almost a month now so it will be great to see them all.

So if you have not heard of this awesome special for April you have got to go and check it out otherwise you will have to wait until July to be able to get this paper and stamp set .... however you could have it now you are free to order them Stamp set and DSP after a $25.00 order.  Can I just ssay the paper all on its own is absolutely stunning

Anyways this is one of the 4 four cards that a group of us made on Monday at my class.

Hope you  like it and I will hopefully be back throughout the weekend, in the meantime
Happy Stamping

A 40th Anniversary card

I had a friends mother call me up and ask for a couple cards as she had some siblings that were having their 40th anniversaries this year....one being May 1st she needed it pretty quickly.  Now with 40th being ruby the closest I could think of was Burgundy and because she was not going to be mailing this card but giving it to them personally she had asked for a bit larger card than the average standard card.

Since there has been a few occassions lately for me to have to make the little larger cards I find they are getting alot easier to do.

Now as for the card I was rather proud of it and happy with the results....not to sound braggish but I think alot of it is becasue I really do like Bravo Burgundy but do not grab it very often....may need to change that.

I took the opportunity of it being a larger to do a little more decorating inside as well
It is a bit of a sneek peek of a coming embossing folder you will have the opportunity to buy from the Summer mini that is available as of May 1st.  After I embossed it I then took the sponge daubers in Burgundy and Artichoke and lightly coloured embossed sections.  I used the burgundy marker then to print in the #40 to make the card more personal.

So I hope this has inspired you in some way and that you liked it.
Happy Stamping

Finally back!!!!!!

Good Afternoon

Well finally I am getting my card uploaded.  I got a bunch of pictures taken and uploaded so I will finally have some cards to show you.

So when I got back from Florida as I was telling you the other day I had a hard time coming up with some ideas so I went surfing and I just loved this layout and I can take no credit other than to say thank you to stampcrave
She is absolutely amazing you really need to check out her blog.
You will find it dated April 4th on her blog

Well I am starving and so is my daughter so I shall say good day for now and I promise to be back tomorrow with another card.

Till then Happy Stamping

Sorry for my disappearance!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 I have no excuse other than that we got home from Florida Thursday evening, I have a class on Monday that I just nicely finished making the cards  ( cutting close aren't I...smile)  I seemed to have lost my mojo in the travel and needed to get out the catalogue for some inspiration, etc.   Then while we were gone My father got really sick and has been giving us a bit of a scare lately and then I had an order for a couple of 40th anniversary cards and well the next thing I knew it is Sunday .   Oh and did I tell you all that I hate my camera, until we get ourselves a new one I have to have  pictures taken uploaded to my hubby's computer and then he burns them onto a cd that I can then upload onto my computer....now I know you are all thinking why not just use his....well because there are somethings this lady does not like to share and that is computers, his is all different from mine and honestly it is faster for him to burn and give me the cd....pathetic I know but hey we all have something about us that is weird .....right???!!!!! ....LOL

Well to get to my point I have gotten some cards now made up to show you but we also are in the process of getting me our Florida trip pictures so I can make the kids each a book with my MDS about what was hightlights for them from the trip......so please bear with me and I should have one to show you a little later today if not first thing in the morning.

In the meantime have a great rest of the day AND
Happy Stamping...( I have been)
