Tea-Rific!
That is what this little teacup is - Tea-Rific! :) I have a couple of coffee/latte stamps, but I didn't have a teacup stamp......until I got this cutie patootie from Hambo Stamps. I colored the cup and mat with my prismacolor pencils and gamsol then added a little sparkle with my sakura stardust pen (hard to tell in the picture). This would be a great card to send to a friend for a little pick-me-up! My stamping obligations have finally started lightening up some, I can see daylight - teehee! I so do not mind being busy making cards and altered items for people - I love to see them excited when they get their stuff and it's exactly what they wanted! I work my day job (to support my habit of course), and stamp pretty much every night of the week - it's a sickness for which I want no cure! :) Tomorrow I will be posting some Blogger RAK's I have received.

Mass Produced Cards
Hello All - it's been a crazy week for me - I have been stamping away and getting a bunch of card orders and lunchtin orders finished up - I am now in the home stretch! This is one of the cards that I mass produced for some of the altered lunchtins. It's a great looking card, but easy to mass produce. I totally love the DP which is Magnolia - their paper rocks! The stampset is none other than Papertrey - which is also one of my faves! I have some new card orders as well, so I will have something new up for you soon.............PLUS I will be designing some cards for my design teams - Hambo Stamps and My Favorite Things! They have some really supah cute stamps that I am just dying to ink up! :)

Chocolate Covered Strawberries
I have been busy this weekend getting all the end of the year teacher gifts made. This supah cute gift set I made with the PaperTrey Green Thumb stampset - I LOVE THIS SET! It was just perfect for the chocolate covered strawberries that I am making to give as gifts. The container is the container the strawberries come in at the store - I just washed it out and then altered it to match the card. It will look so adorable once I get the chocolate strawberries in it!! I stamped the strawberries in Real Red ink and then stamped just the edge in Chocolate Chip Craft Ink - voila! I am also making cookies to give - those will go in cello bags with a ribbon and tag attached. Hope you all are having a fabulous weekend!

I'M STILL HERE!
Hello! Yes, I am still here and I'm still alive - I have received several emails asking those questions lol I had a great Mother's Day Weekend - I was so busy around the house - cleaning, yardwork and of course some stamping - I haven't gotten anything completed that I can post here yet so I decided to post a picture of two of my daughter's that I took a week ago. Morgan is on the left and Kourtney is on the right. Now aren't they just gorgeous? I am still filling some mondo card and lunchtin orders, but I will have something new up for you soon! *hugz*

Oh BTW I got LOTS of new rubbah in the last couple of days from Hambo, My Favorite Things and PaperTrey Ink! Each and every stamp TDF! If you have forgotten, today is the day you can purchase the newest stampset from Papertrey - go on over and check it out, I bought mine at midnight last night LOL :)
Mother's Day Card
This is the Mother's Day Card that I made for my mom and my grandma this year - it turned out just like I wanted it to! I have never used this color combo before - I know, what is wrong with me?! lol My SU! Stamp Club order arrived yesterday and when I pulled my paper out of the box, these colors were together and that's how I decided what colors to use for my mom's card. I hadn't really intended on waiting until the last minute to get my card done, but time just slipped away from me. I have lots of projects to get completed, so I'll be stamping my heart out this weekend (well, with the exception of stopping to mow the lawn and work in the flowerbeds) *wink*

Who Wants Chocolate?
Cake that is! lol I just LOVE this flower cake stamp from My Favorite Things! I was looking thru my DP and came across my SU! Au Chocolat and the lightbulb went off to make this card all chocolate! I think it turned out pretty darn cute and I absolutely love that DP! I decided to slide a "levi tab" in on the side with the sentiment stamped on it.

If you are looking to add some more ribbon to your stash, my friend Taylor VanBruggen is having another grosgrain ribbon share and yes I already placed my order! LOL Get on over there and order some - the price is great! :)

My dear sweet friend Kyla Maestas is still going strong with her Cards for Troops Contest - get those cards finished and send them in to her so you can be entered in the contest - there are some great prizes to be won - including a handmade card from me!
You Take The Cake!
This is one of the cutie-patootie stamps that came with the set I received from MFT the other day. I love it - I knew the first time I saw it that it was a must have for my collection! I especially love any excuse to use my Tulip Puffy Paint (which I think nobody should be without lol) - the icing on the cake gave me the perfect opportunity to pull it out - makes it look yummy! :) I really love Tempting Turquoise and Real Red together and haven't used them in forevah! I colored the dress and the cake with my Prismacolor Pencils and blended them with Gamsol - love that stuff! I have LOTS of new stamps coming my way from both of the companies I design for - so be prepared to be blown away! :)
