SFYTT & IA Blog Candy Winner

1st thing...Would you like a chance to have a 50% off Unity Stamp Co. shopping spree??
For World Cardmaking Day Unity is hosting a card drive for the troops and someone is going to win a 50% off shopping spree for their participation! Check out this thread for all the details: WCMD Contest

I made this card for this week's Sketch for You to Try. I had to make it a little bigger than a standard card because my butterflies are too big. I suppose I should have just cut them a little smaller but I didnt think of that until after I glued one down...oopsie:) The butterfly stamp is from the Unity Stamp Company September Kit of the Month!
The cardstock and dsp is from Stampin' Up! The ribbon is by Martha Stewart and is exactly the color of Tangerine Tango, perfect match:)
I used stickles in 3 different colors for the butterflies polka-dots.

The winner of my Inky Antics stamps is:

Want My Inky Antics Stamps? (quickie blog candy!)

A few months ago I ordered some Inky Antics stamps and also ordered their Grab Bag of unmounted stamps. These do have a sticky back so you'll have to mount them on something or remove the sticky cushion if you win them.

There are 35 stamps in the bag. They are mostly holiday stamps, several snowmen and Christmas stamps, a couple Halloween and some sayings, too. They are pretty much all country style stamps.

I'm not using them so i'd like to give them a good home.
If you want these stamps just leave me a comment (with a way to contact you) and I will pick a winner tomorrow, Monday September 29th at 4:45pm EST.

Thanks for stopping by!

Hello Fall!

Today is *officially* the 1st day of Fall but I am still wearing my capri's and sandals!!

I really love Summer. My husband and I were sitting on the front steps the other day trying to find a place we can move to that is around 75-80 degrees all year long or at least 3/4 of the year long. Hotter is ok, just not any colder than that, lol! Let us know if you have a place for us with our ideal weather temperature;)

I made this card to kind of get myself in the Fall mood:
This stamp set is Season of Friendship from the SU! Holiday Mini available starting October 1st. The sentiment is by Unity Stamp Co.

Christmas Cardinal

I really had no idea what I was doing when I was coloring this image.
I didn't realize it was more of a solid stamp, I thought it was a line image that I could color in.
I used my markers and blender pen to color the stamp, then I used my blender pen to color it once I stamped it onto Shimmery White cardstock.

Hope you are having a fabulous day!!
Thanks for stopping by:)

Cheers GSG Swap Card

This is sort of the card I am doing for the new catty Great Swaps Girls swap.
Only diff will be that because I am a dork and don't have enough of this SS Kit, I cut the scallop circles in half and they will only be above the ribbon. I cut them out so the words will all be right side up...took WAY too much thinking on my part but I eventually figured it out, lol! Oh and pray that I don't run out of that ribbon, either!!

What do you think of my new SU! watermark? Yes, it matches my blog layout and I love it!
All of my blog fancy-schmancy-ness is done by Vickie at http://www.vkdesignco.blogspot.com/
I'm telling y'all she is the biz-ness;)

Thanks for stopping by and please don't anyone have a heartattack because I blogged 3 days in a row! I am taking tomorrow off to prepare for Hip Hop Thursday!! See you then!

Halloween Swap

I made this card for a swap I am in at my local scrappin' and stampin' store. I believe the theme is Halloween cards...sure hope so!
The stamp I used is from a new Unity kit that I just got in the mail today: Growing in Unity.
I have been dying for this tree stamp and I finally have it:) Yay me!
The little *happy halloween* cirle stamp is in a Michaels $1 clear set. I do believe it is the only Halloween stamp I have in my collection, good thing I remembered I bought it months ago. And the designer paper is SU!'s from last year.

I am working of a Great Swaps Girls swap card too that hopefully I can show you tomorrow, if I can get the kinks worked out, lol.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great rest of your day or night!!

Dirty Secrets...

I need help. Serious help. This is out of control.
I just have nowhere for all this stuff:(
No closet in this room, no shelves either, just crap everywhere.
And I just ordered more ribbon from Jody's latest ribbon share,
I should be ashamed!
Not to mention the order from Jacksonbelle's Embellishments
on the way to my house...shameful.

Patter would be so scared if she saw this, hope she doesnt look...

No wonder I made this bad card:

And then I had a drink a strong one.

Come back tomorrow for Hip Hop Thursday, if you can stand to look at this blog again.
