Survived the Weekend!

Hello everyone!

Have you missed me I sure have missed you. I must say this weekend was so amazing! Hi to all the new gals I met and can't wait to see a couple of you for my upcoming Holiday Bonanza class (today is the last day to register for it so hurry and email me if you are interested in attending!)

So for the rest of you that didn't get to see me and my inky fingers this weekend. I thought I would share a couple of cards I had with me.

First off this is one of the cards I had selling for in a set. I had seen this over at the Heroarts blog and they of course had a stamp to create it so I said hmmm WHERE have I seen that before then I remember and said OH I am gonna make that card and its gonna be even cooler! LOL...

So I took out my Petal -A- Plenty Embossing folder. Ok can we talk about that for a minute. When I saw it in the mini I said hmmm that looks kind of funky to be honest but then I started seeing cards with it and still I kept saying hmm but I finally broke down and got it and I was so mad at myself because I WAITED so long!
It has such a deep impression when you emboss it.. WOW.. I LOVE IT!!!! Ok back to this card :)

So I embossed it and took my Big Shot and used the Circles #2 Die and the biggest circle was PERFECT to use. Then I looked at the sentiment of the original card I was inspired from and I said WHERE have I seen that before... then it clicked! Our Country Holiday Kit from last year!
Were you one of the lucky ones who ordered a kit when they had an INSANE blowout a couple of mths ago??? If so you have this sentiment you can use it as well!! :)

I know you guys are saying Ellie WHERE IS THIS CARD Ha..I wouldn't keep you waiting anymore:

You see the little bling in the middle of the flowers?? That's some shimmer paint in Champagne Mist. This is a wonderful card to mass produce and is very simple but elegant. So much so guess what my Holiday card this year is gonna be! lol... Also if you wanted to (which I did) you could make the base Whisper White and that makes a beautiful card as well. I would show you but someone bought that set! (this one I remembered to take before it was sold! ha)

Also here is a card from a note set I made :

These note cards were 4 x3 and I made 4 of them w/their envelopes. I like to give thank you notes for everything so these are perfect for that. I used the Level 2 Set-Asian Artistry and I embossed it and used my trusty dabber w/ Pretty in Pink Classic ink and sponged around the image.
I have much to share with you and will the rest of the week. Also I wanted to let you know about my 24 hr. Bday Special that will start on Saturday at 12:24 am (time I was born) !
The only way that you will know what it is, is if I you receive my monthly Newsletter.
So if you would like to be added to my list just send me an email and I will be more then happy to let you know What it is I have in store.
As always thank you so much for stopping by. I am off to continue putting my stamp room together so I can make it a mess this Friday as I will be holding my Bday Party class.
