Vacation ready....



Karen has another cute sketch on her blog today. I love her card....she is so amazing! I tried to do something creative.....it turned out 'ok.' I don't like the umbrella but I think my straw is pretty cool. I used a q-tip with the fluffy ends cut off. I drew the lines on with an orange marker. lol I think it turned out....looking a lot like a straw! Makes me want to go make some lemonade when I look at it! Check out what the other creative people came up with on the blog hop! Enjoy!

sweet Sunday sketch

Betty boop



Betty Shultz is so darn creative! She is usually doing awesome things with punches for swaps. I was therefore excited to see a non punch card done by her this month. Until I realized....we have a cupcake punch! Yes, this is also a punch card. I just love how she did the lace punch peeking out from above the yummy black and white striped ribbon. And yes, there is glitter on the sprinkles on the cupcake. yum yum!

Bloggers pet challenge



Better late than never? lol I actually had this done earlier today but I've been 'mom-behind-the-wheel" all day. whew! Our challenge today was "pets". I have a super cute dog stamp set, Friends Furever, but... darn it....there isn't anything cuter than my puppy! (kids excluded) Fantine is the best dog we have ever had. She was my late husband's 40th birthday present and has been great for us!
For this card, I used the Simply Scrappin Playful Polkadots kit and black cardstock. I added pop dots under the 'self adhesive die cut frame' and a bow with a glue dot.
Quick and easy card that made me want to scrapbook!!
No, you can't have my dog Shari......

oh Julie....


Julie is another awesome stamper....that I love to copy! This is her swap for May. So simple but so beautiful! She stamped the flowers onto glossy white paper and colored them in with markers. The extra shimmer is that Champagne shimmer mist. Gotta love that stuff! The butterfly is a die for the Big Shot. I may copying this one for convention swaps....in purple of course....lol Enjoy!

Sneak peek of the Studio



As many of you know, I recently added on a Stampin'Studio to my house. I absolutely love it! I had all my stampin/craftin supplies in my bedroom before this. Needless to say....it was not the most workable situation. I decided to bite the bullet and pay the big bucks to enclose my smallest garage. I still have a lot of 'tweeking' to do to make it my own little piece of creative heaven, but here are a few pics for now. I have a painter coming later this summer to help me do some funky stuff.....just you wait and see!
