It's Your Day!
This is my Favorite Stamping Bella............Cosmobella!! Isn't she just the cutest?? I love paperpiecing her outfit, it's so much fun! You can't tell from the picture - but I used my Stardust pen to add polkadots to her shirt - definite bling IRL! The DP is Tres Jolie and I used my Doodle This stampset to add a little something to the background. Yes, I know - I cannot put down my corner rounder and stop making scalloped edges!! I really try, but I always reach for it lol I didn't make this card for anybody in particular, just to have in my stash - you can never have enough of those. I opened up my email this morning to find an amazing short letter from this lovely lady from one of the stamping magazines that we all adore! At first I wasn't sure what I was getting an email for, but then quickly realized she was asking/inviting me to submit some of my cards for publication. She said she is an avid reader/fan of my blog. WOW - me! I know a lot of you girls out there submit your work often, but it really hadn't crossed my mind until now to do the same. *big grin* I guess I will get some of my work together and see what happens!

If you haven't been over to PAPERTREY INK and seen the new stampsets that were unveiled yesterday then you have got to hurry over and see!!! They are absolutely amazing!! I have already placed my order and can't wait for them to arrive! :)

My Little Brilliant Bluebird
The very first time that I saw this Rhonna Farrer bird I fell in love with it - I think it's just adorable. I looked everywhere for one, but to no avail! Then low and behold I won this little beauty from Sara Moore's blog! woohoo!! This was my card for my stamp club swap this month - I whipped these out in no time at all. I colored the image using a paintbrush, water and my inkpads - supah simple! I added a little sparkle to my bird and the center of the flowers using stickles.

Card for Stamp Club
This is the card I designed for my stamp club this weekend. I decided to use the SU! Polka Dots and Petals and Circle of Friendship. Both of these sets are a blast to play with - you can do so much with them. I used Cameo Coral, Certainly Celery and Chocolate Chip together - what a great color combo! Wow, I had been missing playing with my SU! stamps - they have some of my most favorite stamps!! Oh gee how I love my paper piercer too - I pretty much try to use it on all of my cards in one way or another! *wink* I am really bummed that SU! started selling their grosgrain ribbon in 15 yard spools instead of 25 yard spools!!! I LOVE my grosgrain ribbon and use it all the time!!! I also can't believe that you can't get chocolate chip grosgrain in the 1/4" anymore - what the heck is up with that? I use a ton of that! *boohoo* okay, well enough of my ranting and raving. I hope you all had a fabulous weekend - I am now counting the days until my vacation (only 2 weeks away). I am not going anywhere this year - just relaxing!

Blogger RAK's and a Happy 4th of July!
I am finally posting a few Blogger RAK cards I have received from some wonderful stamping friends! I love each and every one of them! I hope you all had a wonderful 4th of July filled with food, friends, family and of course firework displays!

Look what Jen Hensley sent to me! I love this little birdie by Rhonna Farrer, it's so cute! I have this stamp, but haven't gotten a chance to use it yet. Thanks so much Jen - I love it!

This cutie patootie was sent to me by Tammy Fite. This is one of my favorite sets from the new catalog! I love this card Tammy, thank you so much for sending it to me!


This adorable Blogger RAK came from Diane Gilbert. I absolutely love this Diane!! I love everything about it, the colors, the stampset, everything! Thank you so much for thinking of me!
MFT Birthday!
My friend's birthday is coming up and I decided to make her a special birthday card using my new It's Your Birthday stampset from My Favorite Things. I love, love, love to use the Tulip Puffy Paint for the icing - makes it look realistic! I used the Faux Ribbon Set from Papertrey Ink for the backgrounder. The layout inspiration is from SC126 on SCS - I FINALLY decided to try one of the sketch challenges. I think the card turned out great and I love pink and black together! Check back soon as some of my new Hambo Stamps have arrived and I will also be posting some Blogger RAK's I have received (yes I know I am behind in posting those lol). Have a safe and Happy 4th of July!
