The Best Set Ever! (Sung to the Tune of Best Day Ever)

This set is so very great. I tried my hand at the baby wipe method of creating a stamp pad. First I tried it with a wet paper towel. Doesn't work. Then I tried it with HandiWipes. worked ok but not as well as with baby wipes. Unfortunately I'm wayyyyy to lazy to go get baby wipes. When I was rinsing the plate that I had the wipes on, I realized that there was a beautiful pattern of inks on the porcelain plate, so I smushed the paper into it to make a beautiful DSP :).

Birthday Cupcake

It's late, and my post is short. I love, love, love, the top note die. It's so perfect! I always need birthday cards at the spur of the moment, so this will come in handy. All supplies are SU. I used sage shadow, choco chip, and tangerine tango. I was going for Clean and Simple and may have undershot (?) I'm thinking it needs something....


I finally had the chance to participate in a challenge after a long hiatus! I used these great SU rub-ons (Love and Happiness) that are now retired. You should check out the special they have right now. 20% off of rub-ons. They really last such a long time and are a nice value! email me if you would like to order!

The stamp set I used are Upsy Daisy for the sentiment and Always for the flowers. I also stamped the flowers on the ribbon with craft white. Hope you like!

Google Thanksgiving

Someone inspired me to look up "vintage images" on Google and use them in my cards. This is what I came up with. Is the doll a bit creepy with the turkey though? What's that all about? Anywho, hope you like it! I don't know if you can tell, but I popped up a few leaves and made a border using a single leaf stamp from a hostess stamp. HOpe you like!

Birthday Greetings

I used this cute set to work on my coloring. I believe I used my copics for this. How cute is that frog?

REgionals note cards and holder

I had a blast at SU Regionals. I had no idea it would be so fun and informative. I can't imagine how great convention is.

Here's one of the cute projects we made with the set they gave us "Best Wishes and More".

It's mini notecards and a note card holder. I gave it to a friend who's been out of work from surgery. We miss her and are looking forward to her getting back. This set is adorable! Let me know if you are interested in ordering it. It has cute sentiments, the bird, a flower, and a heart. I know I'll be able to use it a lot!

This month has been a crazy one. (Looks like I've been posting once a month since school started back :( Gotta work on that.). Soccer season is over, so things should slow down a bit. Although basketball is starting for one of my girls....
We have a working kitchen now, although we need to finish the details: paint, trim, window treatments, and flooring. I can't tell you how are quality of life changed since we got the sink installed though!!!
Thanks for looking and "listening"!
