Today I have a card for you using the new stamp set by SU! called Good Neighbors. This set is part of the Sell-A-Bration promotion that will start on Jan 5th, for every $50 you spend on products you get to choose a free stamp set, sweet! I'll tell you more about it later, hehe. Email me if you're interested :)

For some reason I had the most difficult time trying to get a good pic of this card, seriously it's much better looking in 'person.' The colors are so giddy and bold! The set is so cute and fun to work with. Lemme know what you think!

Thank you for a wonderful yr of kind comments, awesome card making and the never ending inspiration you bring each weak through your blogs! Seriously, it's been a blast getting to know you and meeting new blogger friends. I'm excited to see what the new yr brings to all of us!

The card, most of the supplies are from SU!, save the ribbon perhaps and a couple card stocks. I've had this stamp for ages and only used it once on holidays cards 2yrs ago! For the new yr i'm planning on using stamps I already have, believe-you-me i have quite a bit! One thing about the card, well the card base should be gray but it's showing a little bit blue, sorry about that -_- Whaddaya think? Likey? I am so proud of my new use of colors, hehe, don't think I've ever used this combo ;o)

Any plans for the New Yr?

Holiday Tag! 2S4Y


Holiday Tag! 2S4Y

Hey there peeps,

A tag here using Kazan's sketch #42 over at 2S4Y. I was very excited when I saw her tag sketch because I've found joy making tags, for some reason tags make me happy, hehe. One thing I did so that the tag is sturdy since the patterned paper is not thick enough, I just went ahead and cut out the tag on reg card stock and glued it to the PP, simple. The tag iself is pretty easy to make. whaddaya think?

One more day for the Holidays peeps, I hope you've got yer shopping done so far, can't imagine me being at the mall the day before Xmas, my guess is that it would be packed with all those last min shoppers, hmmmm...

Good Mon to ya Peeps,

I have a card here for you using one of my new stamps (bought it a while ago) from SU! Bird on a Branch. For some reason the simplicity of the set made me want to buy it, hehe. The sentiment stamp is from Hero Arts, their Thank you set. It's very elegant looking, didn't intend that to happen but the ribbon puts it up a notch.

Let me know what you think! And I hope your wk started off well. For this wk, well nothing planned except visiting the in-laws on Xmas day. Every yr we spend Xmas with them they ask me to bake an apple pie. I'm am kind of a great baker. Here is the recipe if you'd like HERE. The whole pie preparation takes time but well worth it!

Hey ladies,

I'm done with the Fall'09 semester! woohoo! classes are over for me! yey! So I've already made a card, still making them to send with a package to the fam back home in Bze :o) The card is based off of Laura's Sketch #41 over at 2S4Y. It's been a while since I played with their sketched so since I have time, I hope to play more. Don't you just love that xmas tree? I got it on the Hot Spot over at Archiver's, for cheap, and so many come in that pack!

Winter is Warmer Together

Hey there peeps,

A happy Mon to ya! Hopefully yer Mon wasn't too bad, nobody ever likes Mon right? Me either. A card here for you today, this is one of the many cards I sent out for fam and friends. Since Archiver's was having a sale on their stamps and quite frankly I lacked the holiday ones, I decided to get this cute set from Stampendous. I luv snowmen, is this one cute?

How are your holiday plans coming along? After Wed I'll be able to buy some gifts for my fam and send it down to them.

Hello ladies,

{sigh} I've been studying like a mad woman these past couple of days, I have two finals- tues and weds. I have a card for you though. I felt like I had to take a break from studying because I was going to go nuts if I didn't, hehe. Actually I've made several holiday cards today using CC "Jolly by Golly" collection. I'm really loving the tags that come with it, not sure what to call them but a whole page comes full of cute little tags worth using in a card.

Sorry if I haven't commented on yer blogs lately, I'm just trying to get the studying done, once that's all over I'll be around more :o)

Snuggle Up for the Season! and Great Find.


Oh my goodness, when I saw this cling stamp on sale over at Archivers today I was like, I have to get it! lol. I luv the Matroyshka doll type stamp, aren't they adorable? And the little penguin and snowman, so cute! The card is very simple since I wanted all the focus on the stamped images. The colors are very traditional holiday colors except maybe for the Kraft card stock. Let me know what you think! Oh yeah, I am having this card as part of the Holiday stamp party I am hosting in a couple weeks for all the ladies I met during the last yr in class. It's my way of wanting to touch bases with them and letting them know how much fun it was getting to know them, study together :)

Ok, I also had the MoxieFabWorld "Christmas in the Old Country" challenge, my card is based off of the Matroyshka Doll from Russia!

**Great Find: Stampendous "Cling Snuggle Season" cling stamp**

Why? Gosh, I'm drooling over this stamp, hehe. I luv that it's just the right size for a standard size card and easy to color in. You don't need to decorate your card much since the stamp itself is so adorable!

Where and How much? Archivers is having a sale on all their stamps - 20% off on all stamps. Sells for $3.99+tax with the 20% off. Regular price $4.99 (not a bad price for a cling rubber stamp)

Charming Gift Tags




Hello peeps,

Hope you are having a wonderful week so far. As for me, well, one more wk of classes and then finals, so my 3wks vacation is right around the corner! yey!
The tags: well, I had bought a SU! Charming stamp set a while ago and had not used it, brand new! I found it a couple days ago and decided to make cute tags using the set, aren't they elegant looking? These tags would go great on a wine bottle as a gift or on a flower bouquet or something, don't you think? I really liked how they looked, especially since a lot of the card is stamping! The tag size is 1 3/4" X 3 1/4 ". All I did was stamped the images on the right, the sentiment, punched out a circle to tie the twine through. Voila!
