Good morning!!! I hope you're all enjoying a sunny Saturday!! It's beautiful here in the Land of Enchantment! You just can't beat the weather here in Albuquerque--warm, sunny, and DRY!!! :-) For those of you that have never been to Phoenix, AZ--let me tell you, the whole "it's a dry heat" thing--not so much!!! It's VERY humid there, and VERY hot!! After spending last weekend in the hot, humid air watching a gadzillion baseball games, I really appreciate my weather here at home even more!!
Okay, enough rambling!! It's Sketchy Saturday over at the UDI Blog! Here's my version of the sketch:
I used the Tart & Tangy Stamp Set and the Rockabilly Designer Paper! Colors are Real Red, Kiwi Kiss and Basic Black!! I used the aluminum cirlce tag for the main image--layered a black 1 3/4" circle onto the tag (to cover the white), then added the red scallop circle and then the stamped image!! I like the way it turned out!!!

Good morning!!! Here's a card I made for this week's Divas' Coffee Break Design Team Challenge!! It was a sketch this week! Here's the sketch:
And, here's my interpretation!!
I also incorporated Dawn's Raspberry Suite Color Challenge #7!! I used Pink Passion, Always Artichoke and Certainly Celery!! The stamp set is A Beautiful Thing, with the "Kind Thanks" from the Thank You Kindly set! The scallop circle was made with the Big Shot and Scallop Circle Die!
So happy with the way it turned out!!!
Now--get to stamping!! Let's see what you come up with!!!
Good morning!!! I got up early today, and stamped!!! I had a couple of challenges that I needed to complete for design teams, and I got them both finished!! You'll have to come back tomorrow for the second one!!
This first card is for the LateNightStampers Design Team--our challenge this week was to create something with a "Summer Theme"!!
What do you think? Summery? Well, the idea in my head was "picnic"--that's where the checked pattern came in. But, I'm not sure how summery it is!! I like it anyway!!

Cardstock: Pink Pirouette, Riding Hood Red, Whisper White and Bella Rose Designer Paper.

Good evening!! I hope you all enjoyed your Memorial Day weekend! We just returned home from a baseball tournament in Phoenix--WOW, was it hot!!! haha!!! The boys played awesome--won 3, and lost the last one. It's always so much fun to watch them play. This was our last "traveling" tournament as a team--next year they'll be in high school and playing on that team. The Bulldogs have been together for four years, and we've watched them all grow into wonderful young men. We still have the State Championship in June--wish us luck!!!!!
Sorry, no stamping to share tonight, but I have some projects in the works!! Check back tomorrow!!!!
