How lucky am I

When I checked my mail box yesterday I had some bills some junk mail and a fantastic card from Lisa Green. Lisa won the UStamp pass and decided to send me a thank you card. When I opened it I just thought WOW how lucky am I. Lisa also sent me some lovely ribbon, which I'm sure I'll find a great use for. Thanks so much Lisa!!!

Kwerner challenge #55

A very quick post tonight, I was suppose to be finishing my 2nd project for UStamp but I got a bit side tracked and thought I would quickly do the Kwerner challenge.
I couldn't get the colours out of my head so I had to make a card before I could do anything else. I love these colours, they go fantastically together. This is what I ended up with. Check out the other entries here. I better get back to my project or it will never get finished. Thanks for stopping by!

Makeesha's sketch challenge # 9

I must admit I had a wee head start with this challenge. I was at Amy's place on Wednesday night and she was working on her sketch challenge card so I thought I may as well do mine too. Its great having a friend with benefits, and we don't get together very that often to stamp so I may as well take advantage.lol. It took ages to whip this card up, its always takes a long time when you are talking and eating chocolate.lol.
Stamps: Eastern blooms, short & sweet.
DSP: Urban Oasis
Card: Whisper white, kraft and basic black.
Ink: Basic black.

Mojo Monday # 91

I finally got some time today do Mojo Monday. As soon as I saw the sketch I was planing my card. I don't know what I was thinking but I layered my card first and had it all ready to put together and I still didn't know what stamps to use. ( I normally choose my stamps first) After a
loooong time I decided I need some new stamps he he. Then I decided on petal pizzazz. I think this was the longest time I have ever spent on choosing a stamp set to use.( Must be Friday lol.) Thanks for stopping by I better go and get Keisha from kindy!

Makeesha's Inspiration Challenge # 8

Well I have finally have got round to doing Makeeshs challenges. I'm not sure if I'm that happy with this card. It was suppose to be a masculine card and I always seen to struggle with men's cards. I guess I just like more pretty cards.lol. But I must say the the colours that are in the inspiration picture are fantastic. You will have to excuse the mess in the background I never seem to get time to clean up. I had a lot of trouble with the photos today for some reason and these are the best of the worst.lol.
STAMPS- trendy trees and fifth avenue floral.
INKS- Sahara sand and kiwi kiss.

Kwerner challenge # 54

When I saw the colours this week I thought they look great, but I got out the colours and I thought man this is going to be a challenge and it was. This is what I ended up with. I used heartfelt thanks and flight of the butterfly. I also added some chunky sprinkles to the middle of the flower. Check out the other entries here. Its been a busy weekend I can't wait to get kids in bed so I can sit down and relax, or maybe do a little more stamping. Thanks for stopping by.

Live like you mean it notebook

Last week I made this notebook for Karen from KareN Stampz as a wee gift since Karen had already signed up to UStamp. I posted it off to her and now that I know that she has received it I can show you with out spoiling the surprise. I used urban oasis DSP and basic black, real red and very vanilla go great together. Live like you mean it is the stamp set(number 1 hostess set). Hope you are all having a great weekend.

Mojo Monday # 90

It feels like forever since I did a Mojo Monday. I love doing sketches you don't have to think much because the layout is already set.lol. I'm not sure about this effort but as Amy would say wrap it up and call it done. (may be its the yellow bird). Anyway enough of my rambling. The colours are chocolate chip so saffron and summer sun. DSP is good morning sunshine and the stamp set is cheep talk. Check out all the other entries here. Thanks for stopping by!

Boatloads of love

Man it feels like ages since I posted, its been a bad week. I have had the flue and I am off to bed straight after this post. I felt like doing a wee bit of stamping this afternoon and thought I better finish my boys swap that is way over due. I have used old olive and always artichoke and no ribbon(can you believe it!). I have popped out the puffs of smoke with some dimensionals and used puff paint on them. Sorry about the very short post I will be back when I feel a little better.
Thanks for looking.
