I know its been awhile. I have been busy exercising and all that boring stuff. Trying to be a serious dieter.
Here is a card I made for a great friend and penpal. She loves the sea colors and sea themed items. She does lots for a lot of people so I wanted to do something for her. I made a gift pack of 6 cards. The ribbon reminded me of Ariel from a little mermaid. I mailed it out to her and she loved it.
The stamp is great impressions. I used the swirly cuttlebug embossing folder, I also used justrite stamps for the words and a retired SUwheel along the bottom. The shell is colored with SU watercolor crayons and I ran over it with my watercolor brush.
Thanks for all you do LYNN!
PS Tomorrow I will have my card for Taylors cupcake challenge.

(Except, I do have to work tomorrow!)
I made two of these gift sets today. One I made for the wife of a kindof co-worker of my hubbys. He is one of the contractors that works with the company my hubby works for. He gave us matching sweatshirt jackets and of course wouldnt let us pay for them. So I made this for his wife. I also made a set for a coworker of mine whose birthday is coming up.
I used Justrite Stamps and the new Basic Grey Bittersweet designer paper. I used Vanilla Fudge and Brittle. Dont these names make you hungry? I also used SU cardstock. Blush Blossom, Close to Cocoa and Chocolate Chip. Then for the ink and ribbon, those are from Papertrey Ink.
I love how well all these colors went together. My hubby liked it so much he asked me to make another one for a gal at work. He wants me to make hers a little different. I dug up some of my papertrey ink clear boxes also.
Thanks for looking and happy stamping!

Dont you just love this little gal? She is ready to go out on the town. I love her dress and scarf. She is called Light The Night and is by Penny Black. I used Basic Grey Bittersweet collection. Praline and Meltaway. Yum.! Dont they sound good? I also used SU Purely Pomegranate and Pink Piroutte. I only have 2 sheets of Purely Pomegranate left and then it is gone for good.
I also used some pink ribbon I have been wanting to use for a long time but it is really think. Not really good for bows or knots. Then I used some flowers and dew drops and some little pearly things.

This is another Fiskers set by Tricia Santry Studio Collection. It is called Hoppy Day. I love it and it goes perfectly with the basic grey paper also. This is the Eva collection called Courtier (I think).
I used two retired colors from SU. Wild Wasabi and Positively Pink. What will we ever do when we run out of our retired stash of colors from SU?
Speaking of colors. Papertrey Ink sure has some cool colors with their papers and ribbons and now buttons.
Well, the weekend is over. Tomorrow is monday again. The weekend sure goes by quickly doesnt it?
I also made a cool set of cards yesterday but I cant put them on here yet cuz they are a set for a special friend and I dont want her to see them before I give them to her. So that will be awhile but they turned out really pretty and colorful. All I can say which will probably give it away is that they have a really pretty seashell on them and are very colorful.

Hello Everyone! Happy Sunday!
I am so not into sports and am really glad my hubby isnt either so we dont have to have super bowl sunday at our house. My hubby is going for a motorcycle ride today. Way too cold for me!
I made this baby boy thank you card for my boss. She wants 24 of them for a shower gift for her sister. They were really fun to make.
Supplies: Stamps used were SU Loads of Love and the new thank you set Thank you Kindly. The paper was SU cardstock Blue Bayou and Baja Breeze. The designer paper is Nanas baby boy 12 x 12 pack from DCWV. I colored it using SU markers and used SU blue bayou and soft sky ribbon and also some buttons I had.
