2 days in a row...help, I'm outta control!! lol

Good morning!! How is everyone out there today? I'm tired, but I guess that's just the nature of the beast anymore. If I'd get my butt to bed before midnight, I might not have this problem!! lol. It is working up to be a beautiful day here...already 70 degrees! Woohoo!! Can't wait till the dew burns off so I can take all the little rugrats outside to run off some energy. If only I could bottle some of that for myself, that would be wonderful! No more lazy days 4 me!!

Anyway, here are 3 cards that I made back in March using the Unforgettable Level II paper pack (X7106B). I was vendoring a crop at the local catholic school for a fundraiser and was able to crop myself. I made cards because the mere thought of hauling everything along to scrapbook, quite frankly, scares the heck out of me. It never fails, I bring everything I think I'm going to use and then want to use everything I don't have along. So scrapbooking is strictly an at home activity for me! lol All products used are Close to My Heart unless stated otherwise.

1st card: The card stock colors are bamboo, colonial white & twilight. I used Antique Copper brads from the Mini-Medley Accents Collection (z1275), Say it in Style (D1283),Butterfly Wings (D1341) , Creme Brulee, Chocolate & Sorbet ink.



2nd card: The card stock colors are Creme Brulee, Sorbet, Bamboo, Chocolate & Colonial White.This one uses Treasure Life (D1306), Say it in Style (D1283), Antique Copper Photo Hangers (Z293). Chocolate, Creme Brulee & Sorbet ink. Border punch: EK Success. Ribbon: Joann's.


3rd card: The card stock colors are Bamboo, Juniper, Chocolate, Sorbet & Colonial White. Thank You (D1361), Say it in Style (D1283). Sorbet ink. Antique Copper Photo Hangers (Z293). Border punch: EK Success. Scalloped Circle punch: SU



Thanks for looking!! Go out and let the sunshine warm you from within!!

OMG!!! Has it been that long?!?!?!

Would you believe it took me a moment to remember my blog address, after I typed in what I thought it was, I was taken to some crazy tourist website. Oops!! Anyway, i figured it out and here I am!! I want to apologize for how long it has been since I have posted last. No excuses, but I can't even begin to describe how overwhelming the last year or so has been for me with 4 children....so I won't! You'll just have to trust me on that one!! lol


I have done a few things here and there but mostly my scrap stuff sits in the basement collecting dust waiting for me to come down, blow it off and play again. My scrap stuff has a bit of a savior in my BFF Tara...she comes to spend the weekend with me now and again and forces (well not really, lol!) me to go do and be creative. It sure does take a lot to get those creative juices flowing though! It's funny how much truth there is in "when you don't use it, you lose it!"

Anyway...where to start? Here is a card that I made recently. I made this a weekend or so ago when Tara came over and "forced" me to be creative! lol


Isn't he cute!! I just LOVE him!! He belongs to CTMH's July 2010 stamp of the month "Happy Forever". I can't wait till Tara comes to play again so I can play with this set some more!!

The scalloped border is done with Spellbinders Nestabillities. I am now the PROUD owner of a set of these!! I have been waiting for soooo long to get them, and wouldn't you know it....Michaels carries them now!!! Used my 50% off coupon to get them for just over $13. LOVE IT!!!

I used all Close to My Heart on this one except the blue flowers, those are Prima. The paper pack I used is Caboodle (x7121B). Cardstock is sweet leaf, chocolate and white daisy. The pearls are the Autumn/Winter 2009 Connection Club reward. The chocolate ribbon was a Spring 2010 CC reward. Border punch is SU. Hedgehog was colored with Copics ~ Body: E00, E31, R20, Shadow: C1, Back: E33, E35, E37.

Thanks for looking! I will try not to fall off the face of blogger for to long! lol! See you again soon!!
