I am soo bad about updating my blog! I'm just to darn busy with working, being mom, wife, and cleaning etc. But I try to touch base with ya every once in awhile. :)
Anyways, as some of you know already my good friend, Teresa (jtkshaw on SCS), came to visit me!!!
We had such a good time chattin', shoppin' and of course card makin'! We actually got some things done.
Teresa got more done than me since I have to plan it all out and she just whips em out! Ha! WHATEVER!
She made this really cute candy bag using her Scor-Pal! Isn't it super cute? I almost ate one of the candies the other day but I resisted. Ha! it was kind of hard to get a good photo of this but i hope you can see how she stamped the bag! Really cute gift!
I know over on Teresa's blog she posted some photos of the cards she made so check them out!
I haven't actually taken any photos of the ones that I made yet. Once I get my swap cards done I will take some photos of them all at once. :)
Happy Stampin'!!!

NMBS Challenge #6

Good Sunday mornin' to ya'! Ha!
I got up around 7 because I was anxious to get the challenge posted over at NMBS (no more bad swaps) blog.
You may have heard me mention the swap group before (NMBS) well, this week was my week to host the challenge and I must say I was nervous for a second there. But then I got into it and I had fun!
This is the card I made for the challenge. The challenge is to use a simply scrappin' kit (retired or current). You can only use the papers in the kit and you CAN NOT use any STAMPS! Yikes! You have to have ribbon on your card and one other embellishment. Card can be any size. If you feel like playing along please check out our blog. (link is listed at the right).
I used the "Tie the Knot" Simply Scrappin' Kit!
Hope everyone has a great Sunday! I am off to finish some swap cards! :)

Thanks Dawg!

OMG how cute is this dog stamp? I got this set from my good friend, Teresa (AKA jtkshaw on SCS) for my birthday! She is just soo sweet like that! :) So, I finally made this card I had in my head. I first thought of the Print Pattern BG and then I realized the East Coast Prep paper! How perfect are they together???
I must say this is the first time I used markers on CLEAR stamps to mask. I wasnt sure how it would work since it didnt seem like the marker was really showing up on the stamp.
If you KWIM? But it worked for the most part.
Here is the card recipe in case you are wondering???
Stamps: Inkadinkado ("dogs" set), Stampin' Up! (print pattern and Ruff day)
Paper: Brillant blue, Bashful blue, Pumpkin Pie, Whisper White, East Coast Prep DS (SU)
ink: real red, versamark, basic black
accessories: copic and SU markers, Rhinestone (collar *bling*), gingham ribbon (SU), pop dots
As always TFL!
