It's been awhile since I've been here. It seems whenever I add something I have to stop something. I started exercising on a regular basis and well that left little time for stamping. Not a good plan. I've got to figure out how to get both stamping and exercising in. Does getting up to pick out paper count? Probably not:-)
Anyway...enough with my problems...A co-worker of mine is getting married this summer. A group of us went in on a gift. One of us collected the money and purchased the gift, another bought the wrapping paper, and the last one of us (me) made the card and this is it. I was trying to think of something quick and cute. Cause that's how I do it. I used the Blissful Bride stamp set. I really like the gown image and decided to use my sponge daubers to give it some color. I finished it up with a bit of white smooch. That gave it the shimmer to make it a bit special. I hope the new bride likes it.
Thanks for stopping by...now go stamp something!

A couple of posts ago I used this same layout and same stamp set with a different color combination. I liked it so much I had to try it again. It's a quick, simple, and fun layout to duplicate for any occasion. This isn't my usual style of card but I like the softness of it. It's very interesting what one comes up with when you step out of your normal box.
Thanks so much for stopping by...now go stamp something!

Okay, so I totally cased this card from Heather Summers. I saw this cute card on her blog and wanted to recreate it myself. So here it is. It was a lot of fun to make. I need to use my punches more often. I, of course added my own touch....some ribbon because I just LOVE, LOVE, LOVE me some ribbon. The quality of this photo is pretty questionable, probably because I'm trying to take photos at midnight when ALL natural lighting is gone! I will try to retake it tomorrow and change the photo. I really wanted to get another post on so I am apologizing in advance.
Well, thanks for stopping by...now go stamp something!

A quick and fun card using the Apple Blossom level 2 Hostess set. I believe this was my first time ever using it and I think I should pull it out more often. I mistakenly cut the card stock too short so I had to make some adjustments. I decided to add 2 scallop edges to even out the front and back of the csrd.
Hope you like it!
