Pink Christmas!

Hi everyone! Well, it's been over 10 months since I posted. Sooo much has happened in that amount of time, but I won't bore you with all of the details.  Just know that I am really happy.  I have not stamped one thing since February.  The only reason I have gone into the craft room in that amount of time is to iron. :(  Yesterday, though, my daughter asked if I would make cards for her teachers...grrr...I did not want to, but I did. It was actually fun again! Life sometimes gets in the way of fun things and they hit the backburner, right? Well, that's what happened to me. I THINK I am back....but we will start slowly. :)

Anyway, here is one of the cards I created. I uploaded four of them on Facebook, but this one is my favorite. I hope you guys are all having a nice week. See you soon!

simple birthday

Hey there! I hope you're all having a wonderful week! Mine is going pretty good so far. Looking forward to a great weekend, so let the countdown begin. :)

This week is my week to choose the colors and inspiration photo over at Color Throwdown. I went with this gorgeous cake as my inspiration:

Isn't it lovely? I just love pretty cakes..and I really like the funky design on this one. I made a birthday card for my cousin..hope she likes it. I went with simple (of course) and I found that I really like the geometric design on the stamp (it's from Rosie Posie by Papertrey). Here is my card:

You know, that satin Early Espresso ribbon from Stampin Up really is one of my favorite ribbons ever! It's so delicious looking! 

Well, thanks for stopping by! Be sure and see what everyone else has done this week!

who's counting?

Hi there! Thanks for stopping in. Today is Wednesday, which means it's time for another Color Throwdown challenge! This week's challenge is brought to us by Kerri! Here are this week's colors:

Don't you just love that picture? The wallpaper looks amazing. I'd love to hang out in that room for a while! I decided to go with a simple card this week. Ok, so I HAD to use some patterned it's still a very simple card. Here ya go:

I thought all of the random numbers on the patterned paper went perfectly with the sentiment! I added a few pearls on the white to give it a little pop and I was done. Oh, I also embossed the sentiment in white so it stands out a little more. 

Well, that's it for me today. Be sure and stop in and see what the other ladies have done with this combo!

Ah, Wednesday again. Seems like the weeks are passing by so quickly. I'll be glad when spring arrives. We've had a relatively mild winter, but the rebirth of everything is spring is so welcome at this point! 
This week's Color Throwdown colors and inspiration are brought to you by Joan! Take a looksie:

Aren't they lovely? The inspiration photo really took me in and reminded me of the Wanted by Cosmo Cricket paper that I have. I love the look of that bed and the dress forms are really neat. Here is the card I made:

In addition to being inspired by the bed, the little rosette on the dress form made me think of my Papertrey Loopsey-Daisy die. They're so much fun. Tonight was the first time I used them even though they've been sitting here for almost a month. All in all, I like the feel of the card. I used my woodgrain impression plate on the flower to give it some texture and coordinate with the woodgrain pattern on the patterned paper. 

That's it for me today! Thank you so much for all of the notes and messages you have left for me and your prayers. This has been a better week...I suppose each week will be better than the last. I hope so anyway. Right now, Ava and I are looking forward to Comic Con in San Diego this summer. Tickets haven't gone on sale yet, but when they do we are ready!! We are such 

Thanks for dropping in! Be sure and check out what everyone else has done with these fab colors!

Hey everyone! Look who's decided to make an appearance. Gosh, it's been weeks since i've seen the likes of this place - or your places! I'm sorry about that. Life has been crazy. I went back and forth in my decision to let you guys know what's going on. In some ays it seems unfair not to do so, so I decided to give a snapshot of the last few months. I'm in the midst of a divorce and there have been so so many things going on. Moving, moving again, changing schools, changing schools again, and so on and so forth. Stamping has been THE last thing on my mind though I have sorely missed it. Anyway, that's what's going on here. Hopefully, the silence is over and I can get back to "Life" now...

So, it's Wednesday and that means it's time for a Color Throwdown post!! Here are this week's colors, brought to us by Danielle:

I love these colors together and the inspiration photo made me think of love. The forever kind (how ironic!) and so I decided to make a Valentine's card. Here ya go:

I love love love this tree from Papertrey Ink's Love & Marriage set. So many possibilities for it, ya know?

Well, that's it for me today.  Be sure and stop in and see what the other DT members have done and thanks for stopping in!!
