I did not get to stamp all week. The week just went by with LIFE taking over and not leaving me any time to stamp. I have been working on a list of projects. Those that HAVE to be done and those that I WANT to do. There are a few that HAVE to be done during this next week. It is my dd's last week of school, so I have to make something for their teacher. That is such a hard one, especially for a male teacher. Any ideas?
There are also some projects I have been playing with in my mind: I want to make a kitchen gift set for my sister. She loves cherries and ever since I saw the Sweet and Tangy set in SU I have been thinking of her. I have the set now and the DP which goes with it, so now I'm trying to come up with the best way to use it.
Anyway, I thought I'd leave you with my FAVORITE gallery on SCS in case you have nothing better to do. I've got quite a few items in there already!! Always go here for inspiration, when needed.
Thank you for dropping by and have a great week-end.

I absolutely LOVE the TILDA stamps. I found this challenge on the Tilda & Col Challenge Blog to use swirls. As much as I love these stamps, I have been a bit hesitant in using them, as I've seen such amazing creation with them. I just recently bought the aquapainter and I have been practicing with it. I am finding that I really enjoy watercoloring. I think this is my new favorite technique. I have done some decorative painting with acrilics, but have not done any watercoloring before. This challenge also gave me the opportunity to use a maya road flourish which I was able to buy at our LSS for 50% off!
Stamps: Tilda, SU incentive flower, SU happy harmony (butterfly), Boho Background
Paper: SU Certainly Celery, Barely Banana, DP Sandylion - butterlies

Have a great weekend!

I've decided that when I make a card, I make 2 of them. This because I am usually making one to send to someone, and then I have an extra for emergency use. After I finished with them, I analized it and decided to see what it might look like with a little ribbon. I also used the sentiment which comes with the set.
Thanks for dropping by again.


I am finally doing a sketch challenge again. It actually came together pretty easy. I decided to use the image and paper which I had put together for a swap, which is "Card kits with a twist". We just put paper, dp, ribbon, a stamped image, an embellishment in a bag, and get different ones back. So these are the papers and image I sent for this swap. The image is from the SU Spring Song set, DP is SU Teatime (I think), the sentiment is an MFT stamp. colors SU Cert. Celery, Bashful Blue and Close to Cocoa.

Thanks for dropping by and come again!

Sorry, I just found this today! Go check it out!!


Hi there! Hope you all had a great weekend! We had a normal weekend. Nothing out of the ordinary, same weather, etc... But that's good too! (except for the weather, please warm up already!!)
Anyway, I made this card during last week. Unfortunately my camera is not working and I had taken the scanner over for my dh to use. They moved into a new location and did not have their scanner set up yet. So, needless to say, I had no way of uploading it.
I am very sorry that I cannot take a picture of it. It is much more impressive. I finally used my Blooming Beautiful ? set. I watercolored the image with the aquapainter and inkpads. I've finally found something I really like to do!! The image is popped up on shimmery white paper. The background is floral. I gold embossed some AMUSE flourishes and added a little hodgepodge frame with gold embossed Always SU Small Script.
I WANT to do a lot of stamping. There are so many projects in my head that I don't know where to start. Any suggestions?

Have a great day!
