Hello!

Just a little "hello" card I made using the Unity Stamp Company Kit of the Month called "endings and beginnings". Today is the LAST day you can get it at the price of $24.00.
I think this technique is called spotlighting....it's fun to do, whatever it's called:)

Hope you are having a great weekend!!

I am here getting ready for my sister, brother-in-law and 2 neices to arrive from Italy tonight!
FUN STUFF!!

SCS Color Challenge 207

I made this tonight for the SCS color challenge #207.

I just love Pumpkin Pie and hadn't used it in a while so I thought i'd try to make something. This card was very quick to make...my favorite kind ;)

I used the February USC Kit of the Month Endings and Beginnings and the Distressed Dots background on this card.

I made 2 cards tonight with buttons...very wierd for me, but I am liking buttons lately (sorry Mare!)!

See you Thursday for the Hip Hop blog hop!!

I think you made a great Valentine card, it is awesome and no time at all to make. I would love to have the punch also, like everyone else. I have the 1 3/8 punch right now, was ordering 1 1/4 punch the next order. I like the pink bag, but my daughter would take if from me if I won it. She is a bag freek. Always looking for those kind of bags. The frames would make nice accents in any room with the grand kids pictures. Thank You for the chance to win. I will check and see if I am a follower and if not I will sign up to be.

Rubber Romance Challenge #4

**BE SURE TO POST HERE FOR MY 2 BLOG CANDY GIVEAWAYS!!**

This week our Rubber Romance Challenge was to pick from several pictures for inspiration:






I chose the picture of the purple flowers and vines....I am in a really *purpley* mood tonight!
I don't own any floral Rubber Romance stamps, all I have are the fabulous Rubber Romance girls so I chose Lulu with Curls because of her curly hair that reminds me of the vines in the inspiration picture. Then I just decked her all out in purple!!

Check out the other Rubber Romance girls:
Hope you are having a great day!!
Be sure to join us in the Papercrafts Planet Rubber Romance forum!

One Last Valentine and BIG Blog Candy!

Here is the Valentine's Day card I whipped up for Mike last night right before we went to dinner. It took me about 5 minutes to make, maybe 4...No stamping required either. I used a new Simply Scrapping kit I got from SU!

He loved it so that's all that mattered and I didn't have to use a precious envelope...gotta love that. Just slip it into his sock drawer so he gets it when he gets out of the shower...viola, 1 envelope saved;)
(I'm so lame!)


I have 2 blog candy giveaways for y'all!!

The 1st is these 2 frames and the pink bag you see:



The frames I bought thinking I was crafty and would one day make adorable gifts for my mom and dad or for Rachel to give to Mike or whatever...never happened. The bag, I just had to have and it has the tag on it still....I had grand ideas to put cards in it and fancy it all up and carry it to stamp with friends....well I don't stamp with anyone so it has gone unused.

I hope that someone out there can be crafty with these 3 things....If you want to win them here's what you have to do: Tell me your plans for these items! Maybe it will give me some great crafty ideas to use myself :)
Kepp reading...there's one more giveaway!
____________________________________________________________


The 2nd blog candy giveaway is full of some stuff I have extra of..I actually could give away 5 times this but I thought i'd save some for another time...yes I love to shop ok? I bought this SU! 1 1/4 circle punch because I forgot I already had one...yes I shop and don't even know I do it!!

In this package there is the above mentioned SU! punch, brand new in it's original package, some 6x6 patterned paper, a bunch of ribbon, some Making Memories ribbon tape and I think I see some Studio G $1 stamps in the picture...I honestly didn't know there were in there but it looks like they are :)
What you have to do for this blog candy is sign up to FOLLOW ME!!
Just click on the "Follow This Blog" link on the right side of my blog!!
PLEASE POST THAT YOU SIGNED UP TO FOLLOW ME IN THE COMMENTS OF THIS POST ;) (if you already Follow Me, thank you and just say so in the comments)
Yes, you can enter for both prizes, just Follow Me and tell me what I asked above!!
I will pick the winner on Wednesday Feb. 18th at 9:00am EST and post it here on my blog. Please leave a way to contact you (if you email isnt in your blogger profile especially!) and I will email the winner on Wednesday!!

Friday Fun with Girl Friday {and some candy, too}!!

For our Friday Fun this week Kim challenged us to make adorable 3x3 cards and a box to go a long with them! And guess what??? Kim has blog candy for this challenge!! Gotta love that!!

I think I am in love with these little cards!! I had so much fun making these AND there is absolutely no stampin on them! The is some more Cosmo Cricket Girl Friday paper. I REALLY love this paper, I think this will be the fastest I have ever used up a pack of paper in my life, actually, I don't know if I have ever used a whole pack of paper, lol! But this paper, oh my goodness.....it's ADORABLE!

All of the images are cut out of the paper and work PERFECTLY for this size card!

I made a quick oragami box this morning for my cards to go into. I didn't have time before work to fancy it up but I think I will do that when I get home this evening.



(this pic came out wierd...idk why?)

Check out the Friday Fun girls cards here:
If you'd like to play along and take on this challenge, use keyword FFC22 on SCS or link your blog here, i'd love to see what you make!!
And don't forget to go to Kim's blog for your chance at the Friday Fun Candy!!

TGIF!!
