CPS Sketch 151

I am on a roll now! Had half a day off yesterday and got so much stamping done! Wish I could stay home everyday and just stamp. Know what I mean? This is my attempt at CPS Sketch #151. What do you think? Kinda cute, ugh? I like it. I used the following supplies:
Card stock: Chocolate Chip, Whisper White, Real Red, Pretty in Pink, Pink Passion
Stamps: Things I Love
Ink: Chocolate Chip, Real Red, Passion Pink
Punches: Full Heart, 1" Circle, 1 1/4" Circle, Scallop Trim Edge
Other: Brads
Thanks for looking!

Friend to Friend - Colour Q Challenge #17

As you can see I am really trying to post something new every day. I really like sketch and color challenges. Therefore, I am creating as fast as my busy schedule will allow. Today is my birthday so I took half the day off. And I am spending that very quiet time stamping. Yea me! Tonight my hubby is making me sushi and my friend Mandy is bringing white cake with white icing. Yummy.

This colour challenge looked fabulous to me until I tried creating a card using the colors. It was hard for me to combine the two blues for some reason......but I guess that is why they call it a challenge, right? So, here it is..........I did not have Taken with Teal so I substituted Bermuda Bay. Other supplies used include:

Cardstock: Real Red, Bashful Blue, Whisper White, Basic Black
Ink: Real Red, Bashful Blue, Basic Black and Bermuda Bay
Ribbon: Bermuda Bay Podka Dot
DSP: Night & Day Specialty (Holiday Mini)
Stamps: Petal Pizzazz, Teeny Tiny Wishes
Punch: Word Window
Thanks for looking!

Mojo Monday 123

So, I just got Circle Circus stamp set in the mail and I have totally fallen in love with this set! When I first saw it in the catalog, it did nothing for me. Then I started seeing cards using the set and thought to myself "I should get that set". There are 10 stamps in that set! I love it. So, when I decided to take on Mojo Monday 123, I knew I was going to use it. And here it is: I used the adorable Sweet Pea DSP paper from the Stampin Up Mini Occasions catalog. So Saffron, Whisper White, Kraft and Pumpkin Pie cardstock were used as well as the Scallop Edge punch, Pumpkin Pie striped ribbon and linen thread. The saying comes from the Herb Expressions stamp set. I think it turned out pretty cute!

I'm a dork...........

I just realized as I was going through my scrapbook pages on my blog, that I did not upload the cutest one of all from it is. Although it has a fall theme to it, you can use the layout for any season or theme. Let me know if you need directions on how to layer the strips. After many tries, I finally figured out the easiest way to do it.

Love Bots

I just got my order in from Stampin Up!!! Love delivery day. I decided this year I would be lazy (not really) but thought it would be fun to order these Love Bots for my son's Valentine give-a-ways in his preschool class. Look how cute they are! Of course I have yet to put one together as I had to rush off to work this morning but I can't wait to get home and do them. All you need to complete them is time. Folds and holds together with stickers provided, so no extra adhesive. I thought about ordering the personlized stamp with Davis' name on it but I thought it would be better if he "signed" his own name as he just learned how to do it and it is so darn cute. Now I need to figure out what to put in these boxes........candy of course. I am all about candy for the holidays.

If you are interested......these cute Love Bots boxes come in two kinds: for boys and girls, 30 per package and it is only $9.95. Can be found in the new Occasions Mini Catalog. Click on the link to the right of this post. Order now as supplies are limited!

I used alot of it on these scrapbooking pages and thus, must buy more. Anyhoo, here are the pages:
