OHHH Branch Out

Hello again!

I couldn't help myself and I had to use this set again.. I told you its too much fun.. I feel like one of those painters who makes a scenery for you to sit back and think what you would do if you were in the painting! lol.

For this card I thought about how when I was a child there was this little park and it had a tire swing on one of the trees and how everyone would run after school to get a swing on it.. Oh how much fun and to be young again.. It made me think of those carefree days when it was awesome to just have fun with your friends.. so that is what inspired me to make this little card.

Hope you had a wonderful day! As always thank you so much for stopping by!

Bare With Me Please

Hello all!

Sorry I went MIA yet again but its like if its not one thing around here lately its another. On Friday in the AM my little Sassy girl got a Febrile Seizure so you can image how I was all day in the ER and this weekend keeping an eye on her. Needless to say no stamping or anything. She is doing well and is back to her reg. self. I guess this runs in my genes as I had a febrile seizure when I was 2, My Isaac as well at 2 and now my Sassy. Hopefully and praying that as it was for myself and Isaac this a 1 time thing.

I do have a project to share with you that I made that I couldn't post before as it was part of a Cupid Swap I was in but since we all know and shared our gifts now I can post it!

I got the idea from Julie who is so amazing!

Here is what I made :

the Outside Front

The Back

Side View

(FYI: I used our new Eyelet Border Punch for my handles and the DP and Stamps and ribbon are all from Sale-A-Bration.. YUUMMMOOO!)

I am in the middle of my next project I want to share with you guys as well as projects for my Hostess Conga Line (HEY GIRLS) I hope to be back tomorrow with another share Until then thank you as always for stopping by! Oh and remember if your interested in being in the ribbon share please contact me before Friday!

Have a wonderful President's Day!

A Little bit of Animal Love

Hello everyone!

Sorry I went MIA for a while but had to take care of my babies and I am so very happy to say everyone is doing so much better! So that means I can get to stamping which I have been missing so much. Well I have been stamping and making projects but none I could share right now as they were either for a swap or for my Cupid Swap I'm doing :)

Don't worry I do have some cards to share with you. I made some Valentine Day cards using the cute set Animal Crackers. HOW fun was it to do this!

When I recieved these stamp I cut the sentiments from each one and put it on the top end of each block so I would have the option of using them with each stamp or not to as I did w/these cards. As you can see I went to other stamp sets and using the sentiments I wanted to make a group of Valentine day cards!

For this little card I used the sentiment from Holidays &Wishes. I used my Punch Heart to Heart.

This penguin cute I used the Sentiment for Thoughts and Prayers, I used my markers to color in only the part of the sentiment I wanted to use. Isn't he so cute? the hearts are from Love You Much.

For the little Chicky card I stamped the chick 3x so I could make a little happy trio I used my a scallop punch and created my clouds. The sentiment is from Happy Heart Day.

This is my last little card and I used 2 little images to make this one card. I love that they look like they are looking at each other offering each other something..:) The sentiment I used for this one is from Beautiful Borders.

As always I thank you so much for stopping by!
(I wouldn't be including the items used as this was more of a feature on the Animal Crackers and I am super late as we are heading to my MIL's if you need any more info just leave me a comment and I'll answer it for you!)
FYI: They were all colored with Stampin Up markers

As always thank you so much for stopping by and have a wonderful afternoon!

Return of Showcase Monday

Good Am to everyone,

I'm so happy to have Showcase Monday back and running but for today instead of a Stamp set I am going to showcase some of the new wonderful Designer Paper available.

These 2 cards actually came about because I was talking to my fellow demo sisters and we were discussing how we love Stampin Up product so much we get and then never use it and keep it safe away from scissors and adhesive and from really showing how amazing it is. So I decided to give a challenge to go into our new yummy products and use it and showcase it.

I decided to showcase Urban Oasis:113978 (I told you I love that paper) as well as Tastes of Textiles :113991 which is exactly that so much fun as it as a bit of everything and fun to work with.

This card I used Urban Oasis and our New Eyelet Border Punch :113692 as well I went into my Prettiest Kit :109114 that I have been hoarding forever I said NOT ANYMORE and went right in and used some of the beautiful jewels it includes.

For my next card I am showcasing the Specialty Pack Taste of Textiles:113991. I used the Hostess Level 3 Set -Dream a Little 113435 for the flowers and did Crayon Resist to highlight the flowers and stamped and embossed the little hummingbird with Pacific Point. I put a strip from the Sale-a -Bration Designer paper Delicate Dots Designer Series Paper:114674 as well as a Fligree Brads: 112577 I like the soft effect the card took with me using my Daubers.

I thank you as always for stopping by. Stay tuned later today as I have some news that is about to happen in 8 days a Hint : its time to Celebrate!

Stamps: Dream a Little
