No time to stamp!

No, I have not dropped out of site, just haven't had time to stamp this week. I am having card withdrawal for sure! So many things to do and so little time in the day to do them all. I have tried to stop by your blogs to comment, if I have missed someone, I'll catch you next time.

Today is my daughter's and youngest grandson's birthday.... Roman was a wonderful gift for her birthday 5 years ago. He is very excited of course, cupcakes at school will be so much fun!

Today I am off to the Creative Memories Regional Convention until tomorrow. Scrapbooking was my priority until I fell in love with card making and I am still a consultant with CM. I need to get back in the groove of working on my albums as well as cards so this convention may get me working again. I have already seen the new products and they are great especially for those doing baby albums....some really sweet paper. I know I'll have a great time seeing friends, catching up and getting new ideas.

Have a pleasant and HEALTHY weekend everyone.
Blessings and hugs!

Cupcake Craft Challenge #26

This week's Cupcake Craft Challenge is to create a scene on your card. I decided to use SU Night of Navy cs as my base mounted on CM Silver Sheen paper. I created a night scene of slver embossed trees (Lovely as a Tree), a cut out moon and silver inked stars. On this I added two snowpeople holding a heart, all silver embossed on white, cut out and mounted with dimensionals. I didn't add a sentiment at this point because I'm not sure how I will use this yet. Also, I don't think I need to add any embellishments with this design! How does this look to you? My Snowpeople are from SNSS Snow Friends.

Cupcake Craft Challenge #25 & PCP Sketch

I finally was able to make this card for this week's Cupcake Craft Challenge, some of my favorite shades but just couldn't come up with a design that includes all the required colors: Perfect Plum, Pale Plum, Pretty in Pink and White. The pink threw me! I decided to use Kim Burmeister's sketch on PCP for this week so I could use the pink & white dots as an accent with the plums. Recipe is: SU cs & dsp, ink, ribbon and stamps(Flexible Phrases, Heard from the Heart) Martha Stewart lace edge punch, Uchida scallop punches and flower punch, SU scallop punch and K&Co. rhinestone.
Thanks for looking and everyone have a blessed day!
