Melora Inspired

My young friend Melora was over the other day playing with my stamps, and took out a set that I hadn't played with for a looong time. Her card (which I didn't get a picture of) was the inspiration for this simple one. I think I like it, even if it is really plain.

High Hopes Challenge

I joined in the current High Hopes Challenge. It was to use fall colors, and listed, orange, black, purple, brown, and red. I don't think this looks very fall-like, but I did use all 5 of the colors...althought the orange is just on the tie.

Final Farewell Blog Hop

As many of you know The Angel Company decided to close it's "doors." It is now no longer in business. My time with TAC has been a special and wonderful time for me. I have made so many new friends and learned so much, both about myself and crafting. Thank you Mischelle for giving me a wonderful company to be a part of these last, almost, 7 years. Best wishes to you and to each of my angel friends. God bless you as you go foward into whatever new paths you choose.

Some of us angels decided we needed a way to say goodbye to this special company and our fabulous friend Mischelle, and that is what this blog hop is...hop from site to site (posted below) and see wonderful work done with images from The Angel Company.The two cards above were done with one of my favorite sets, designed by Nina B., from TACs newest catalog. It is called "Vintage Rides." The patterned paper in the plane card is from TAC's paper called "Toodle Loo." The clouds were hand drawn.

This next card was done with another great set called, "Sweet Day Cupcake," and was so much fun to play with.

The image on this card was actually colored by my friend Cristy when we were stamping together a little bit ago, but she decided it didn't work on her card. As it lay there on the table this card layout just burst into my head. I love it when that happens =).

The last card is also done with "Sweet Day Cupcake" I really like the simplicity of it. You can't really tell, but there is a little bit of Glossy Accents.

So now, if you want to see more fabulous cards hop from around to each of the blogs listed below.

Somebunny Circle

I created this cute little card using my nestie scalloped circle die in my Big Shot. I folded the paper first and made sure the very top wasn't cut, that way it will still open.

Stamps: "I Love Easter" (TAC) The rest of the supplies are all from TAC as well. I received inspiration for this card from THIS card...although mine didn't come out as fancy as hers

Falling Apart

This card pretty much sums up how our car has been feeling this last week. It has spent more time broken down on the side of the road than running. =(

I just LOVE this image, but I don't own it. My friend, Diana, stamped it off for me a loong time ago. I have been afraid to use it, and possibly ruin one of my only images...but I think I like what I ended up with.

Does anyone know what company makes this image? I would like to give them credit, but am not able.

All the rest of the supples, eyelets, ribbon, paper, ink, and colored pencils, all came from The Angel you all know, it is my favoritest company.

God Bless!

With Sympathy

This is another of the cards that I made a couple of weeks ago on my stamping Saturday with friends. I actually had all the pieces cute, except the ivory, from an event I went to years ago. I had never finished the project, so I didn't have the stamps that the original card used. It was fun to go through everyone else's stamps to find the perfect flowers to fit...and yes, for some reason I knew I wanted flowers. These flowers belonged to my friend, Sharon, and I LOVE them.

I stamped the outline in black and colored it in with Shimmery chalks (so much sparklier in person). Perfection...or at least I think so. What do you think?

Bunny Birthday

Well, it was back to school for our family on Monday. I like to get an early start, and then hopefully an early finish. At the beginning of every summer vacation I am sure that I am going to get so much more done than during the school year, because of the extra time I will have...but, you know what, I don't. I think it is because I tend to not make a schedule during the summer.

As for this card, I think it is missing something...but decided it was okay as it was and let it go.


"I Love Easter" set from TAC...such a cute versatile set

Cuttlebug embossing folder, and watercolor pencils

Oh, and the ribbon really isn't that crooked.
