Card Number one?

I think I am going to use this card as one of the three for the contest I am entering next month. I embossed the stamped images which made a big difference in the overall look. I tied that stink' bow a million times and it still isn't right!!! I had to step away and I'll try another day! ;) Where are you Lindsey?
I do like the card though!

Joy Fold Card

I did the tutorial from split coast today. It was a lot of fun and I finally used my afternoon tea designer series paper!

Sorry about the resolution...the picture didn't take very well. :)


I am stoked. I won my first contest!!! I got an email today with the winners for the downline contest and my name was among them. Wahoo. I am so excited. Lindsey entered with me and won as well. YEAH for us!!! :)

Birth Announcement!

My sister-in-law has three girls and is having her first boy. For her birthday I helped her design birth announcements and we cut and stamped away this weekend. I love the colors and this new stamp set. Congrats, Carol! Can anyone tell how much I love ribbon? :)

Birthday Card for Claire!

Here is the birthday card I made for Claire. I used this to cover the Peter Piper Pizza postcards to send as her birthday invitations. She really likes them and I had fun making 'em! I can't believe she is turning 6. Where has the time gone?

Wish Me Luck!

Well, I entered my first contest today.  It's a contest through a stampin up demonstrator and the winners get $50 in free merchandise. I bit the bullet and entered!

Here are the layouts I submitted:
The contest called for 2 layouts (or 3 cards) using punches and patterned paper. I had these layouts already done so I just tweaked them a bit. :)

And I'm Back!

It has been six weeks since I have been home , which means it has been 6 weeks since I have stamped. Naturally I have been dying to play around. I did this layout with a stamp camp kit from Lindsey. I changed it up a bit and this is what I came up with!
