CASEd pennant Christmas Card

I case'd this card from Melissa Stout's blog here. Hers is flawless, but I'm a bit of a sloppy stamper. I didn't have the right DSP, so I stamped the medallion from Days of Gratitude on lucky limeade before punching out the pennants to make the tree. Hope you like the card!

Stamps: Pennant Parade, Days of Gratitude
Paper: Lucky Limeade, Real Red, Whisper White, Sahara Sand
Ink: Lucky Limeade, Real Red, Sahara Sand
Accessories: Pennant Punch, Real Red Ribbon, bakery twine, Petals a Plenty embossing folder.

You can purchase any of these items on my Stampin' Up Demo Page. Here's the link:

Vintage Wallpaper for Donna

WEll, I finally got myself a Big Shot. I love the sturdiness of it and the fact that I can use all the SU dies that are available. This one is the Vintage Wallpaper embossing folder and I thought it looked pretty much gorgeous on its own, so I just made the tag to go on it and decorated the inside a bit. I actually CASEd this layout from the catalog. I really LOVE the new in-colors this year. I especially love Pear Pizazz which is featured in this card. Hope you enjoy the card. Leave a comment if you visited.

Hydrangea Get Well Susie!

I grew up really disliking hydrangeas because there were two huge bushes in front of my grandmother's house that were always FULL of bumblebees to my city slicker child's mind. Now I love them and marvel at their different colors and varieties. This stamp set is one of my favorites. If you don't have it, you need it! I used Retired Creamy Caramel, retired French Filligree, and the Top Note Die for this card. I cased it from the Hero Arts blog.
I really liked the way it turned out. Thanks for visiting!

Thank you With All My Heart - S-411 Challenge

I gave myself last night to work on one of my favorite challenge sites, Stamping 411. Here's the latest sketch challenge: I inked up my new SU rubber (With All My Heart.)
I made a background paper using the flower images from the stamp. The colors are Choc Chip, Close to Cocoa, Melon Mambo, and Pretty in Pink. Don'tcha just love the SU color names???
Today is my LAST day of Winter Break. The Steelers play today at 1:00 and we hope for the stars to align in just the right way to get them in the playoffs again. It's too early for football to be over for me.
However, I must say, that Drew Brees is a hottie. I could become a New Orleans' Saints fan in a pinch! Enjoy your Sunday!!
Thanks for visiting.

Birthday Calendars

We did an anything but a card swap for December and I'm finally posting the ones I've mailed. I still have 2 to mail (sorry girls!). I'll get my butt to the post office in the morning. Anyway, I got this idea from the resource section of splitcoast. I was happy to use my binding tool to create this as well as some retired SU papers. This was a fairly simple project to create. You just tuck your cards into the pockets for each month along with envelopes and postage, and you're ready to go for the year! I hope the ladies will ike these!
