Divas Sketch Challenge #94

Good morning!!  We had a blast at my downline meeting last night!!  Stay tuned next week for all the GREAT swaps!!!

Today is Sketchy Saturday, and this week Carol gave us a fun sketch to try!  You can see the sketch at the UDI Blog.  And, here is my interpretation:


I absolutely LOVE the new Jolly Holiday Designer Paper!!  And, Cherry Cobbler may very well be my new favorite color!!!!  It goes perfectly with the Old Olive!!!  The main image is from the Perfect Punches stamp set.

Here is the inside card:

There is lots of space to write your message!  Or, use the printer and print multiples--easy to make lots!  Or, you could even add your favorite photo!!

I am leaving in the morning for a family vacation--we'll be back next Saturday!  But, never fear--I have posts scheduled all week for your viewing pleasure!!

Now, hop on over to Tiffany's Blog!!!

Have a GREAT week!!!


SUDSOL Blog Tour - Coming August 1st!

Nacho Average Swaps!!

Howdy!!!  TGIF!!  And, it's even more exciting--my downline meeting is tonight!  I can't wait to see everyone!  We're going to discuss all we learned at convention, do a little swapping, give out some awards and then, of course, stamping!!  Gonna be a blast!

Here is my card for the swap tonight:

The set is called Party This Way--I received it at convention for my annual sales!!  Gotta love FREE stamps!  Colors used are Melon Mambo, Tempting Turquoise & Daffodil Delight.  I stamped the candle, then added Dazzling Diamonds glitter to the flames with the 2-way Glue Pen!  The ribbon is just tied in a bow, and adhered with a mini glue dot!  I stamped the "Happy Birthday" in black stazon, then added one of our new Rhinestone Jewels!!  Just the right amount of bling!!  Do you have a birthday coming up?  Let me know--maybe you'll get this fun card in the mail!! :-)

Have a GREAT day!!  Be sure to come back this weekend--we have Sketchy Saturday tomorrow, then a wonderful SUDSOL Blog Tour on Sunday!!  You dont' want to miss it!!


Another one for the Divas!!

Hi!!  I was really on the ball before I left for convention last week, and finished yesterday's card--over a week ahead of schedule!!  But, alas, I forgot that I was so on the ball, and yesterday morning created this card for yesterday's challenge!!

Just Believe Stamp Set

Ink:  Cherry Cobbler, Daffodil Delight & Early Espresso Stampin' Write Markers

Cardstock:  Early Espresso, Cherry Cobbler, Daffodil Delight & Whisper White

Dcbd187 (2)
Don't you love these colors?  I used the Greenhouse Gala Designer Paper--makes it so easy to choose coordinating colors!  The sentiment is from Perfect Punches--each of the stamps in this set coordinate with one of our punches!!  Love it!!  The ribbon is 1/8" Pumpkin Pie Grosgrain.  Cardstock is Pumpkin Pie, Delightful Daffodil and Whisper white!

Hope you enjoy!!!  And, if you're ready for some stamping of your own, be sure to check out my upcoming classes!!  Click HERE to see them all!

Another Swap for Convention

This is a "3D" swap I made for the SUDSOL group swap!  We were to make a small gift item for a hostess, customer or group member!!  Mine is a little wish list attached to my business card--so they always have my information handy when they need me!

I used the Oval All stamp set, along with the Greenhouse Gala Designer Paper

Here is another view:

I stamped on my business card using the Friends Never Fade Stamp set, and Stampin' Write Markers!

and here it is all the way open:


I sure hope they like them!!

Have a GREAT day!!


My girls!!

Good morning!!  Now that convention is underway, and I won't spoil the surprise--here are the gifts I made for the girls in my group that are attending convention with me!

It's a nugget tin, filled with lots of little goodies!!

At the top are the tags I made--we all get a great tote bag at convention, so I make these for them--so they can find their bag quickly and easily!

The pumpkin pie packet is a Shout Wipe, the Rose Red is a packet of bandaids, and I also covered some breath mints.  There's a nail file and pen, too!!

I hope they like them!!

Have a GREAT day!
