Friends are Flowers...

Hi everyone, most of you are probably wondering where I've been! Life is changing for us in the next little while which leaves me with less stamping time. We are in the midst of a big move, and it looks like we might be building a home this year instead of buying. So, this leaves me doubting how much room I'll have to stamp while we're building. My postings might be a little sparse from now until the end of the year, yikes! I'm hoping I'll be able to find a little nook to cram at least some of my stash.

I saw a card similar to this on SCS the other day and that led me to a free SVG file for this circle square frame that I cut with my cricut. But I, for the life of me can't find the blog that had the file. I like how the frame looks over the soft designer paper and pearls make everything look prettier, lol.

Thanks for stopping by!!

Sail Away

Hi everyone, hope your day went well! Mine was pretty quiet which is my kind of day. When I saw this stamp set in the new SU! mini I knew I had to have it! So nice and detailed and all the images make it really easy to make a masculine card.

This card is a case from someone on SCS but I never saved the name of the maker. It showcases the faux metal technique which is one of my favourite techniques. The background pieces are stamped and aged. The ship was stamped once on the sentiment piece and than stamped again, cut out and glued down.

Stamps: The Open Sea, Sincere Salutations
Paper: Sahara Sand, Very Vanilla, Black
Ink: Sahara Sand, Black
Other: Silver EP, Black Brads, Baker's Twine

For The Newlyweds

Hmmm, I really don't have anything to say today. And for those of you that know me, you can pick your jaw off the floor now, lol. I will say that it was so nice to just sit down and stamp without interruption, how often does that happen! I should be preparing for our moving sale at the end of this month but figured maybe I could sneak in a little time in my stamp room.

I woke up this morning and this card just sprung into my mind, seriously, that never happens. Usually I stare at my stuff forever until I can come up with something, but this time I couldn't wait to get down there and start. Of course I won't tell you how long it took me, even with a vision in mind.

Thanks a lot for stopping by!

Birthday Balloons

Hi everyone! I'm looking outside our living room window and I can actually see little bugs flying around in the sunshine! Dare we say that Spring is finally going to cooperate?! Life has finally slowed down a little, I let go of my part time job which is giving me a little more freedom, and sanity.

Our daughter has a Birthday coming up and she just loves all these cute little girl stamps so I thought this would be a perfect card for her. And since it's for her I'll probably add some stickles to the flower on her shirt since our daughter loooooooooves stickles. Every time she makes a card it gets a healthy dose of glitter, lol.

Thanks so much for stopping by, I hope you're enjoying your day!
