What a weekend! Had a date night my hubby (for the longest time forgot what that was) enjoyed a fab Italian meal, watched a great hockey game ( not good if you have high blood pressure) and got to sleep in the next morning. YES!! Anywho..was stampin Saturday and came up with this. Used 2 sayings from Small Script and Edgy Eloquence on whisper white and sponged around the edges with bashful blue. Base is chocolate chip. patterned paper is from the local scrapbook store before they went poof. Pierced both the thin white strip and dark brown piece. Had to put stickles on the flower. Someone needs to take that bottle away from me!! I have too much fun with those. Ribbon and clip complete the card. Hope you like it.

Yes, 2 more sets to cross off. Used the Favorite Friends (the warm weather has me thinking about hanging out at the pool) and Fun with Shapes. I used so saffron, cool caribbean, basic black and a bazzil red papers. Stamped the image in basic black and colored and used gamsol and stump. Then stickles on the sea grass, starfish on his swimming trunks and bubbles, and black gingham ribbon. I really need to learn how to do more close up with my camera.. oh well.

What a day! My eldest daughter came over and we stamped 24 cards for her to use for thank you and birthday. After she left I decided to play a bit more and actually came up with original works... Shock! The card on the left if using the retired set Country Vine and Cute Converse. Paper: whispers white, yellow brazzil, regal rose, and certainly celery. Inks: certainly celery, regal rose, yoyo yellow. Also stickles on the flowers, ribbon, piercing with white get faux stitiching, and frame from Queen & Co. (Frame-Girl set).
The 2nd card was one that she took, simple birthday or thank you on the bottom. Uses the Let's Party set and Simple Sayings II, Ink: Bashful Blue. Paper: bashful blue, whisper white, and pool party paper. Stickles on the candles and matching brads.
I hope that you enjoy these. I crossed out 20 sets on my list today. I was so excited. Whew..only 257 more to go.
A new week, a new chance to stamp. Got several projects done over the weekend. Dh got sick this weekend, so was trying to stamp in between work and making him feel better. Decided to use up some of the old forest foliage paper. Card uses FF, Close to Cocoa and confetti cream. I pierced the edges and faux stitched with a brown pen. The stamped images are sponged and bottom corner turned up and black brads with hemp string added. Woohoo, with this set and the ones I used this weekend I can add 6 more sets to my "stamp all sets at least once" challenge.

From bad to worse...
Yesterday was a yucky, yucky day weather wise. Rain and thunder all day. Had all afternoon to stamp. I thought, "I'll get a bunch done." Yeah, right. I just couldn't get in the groove and everytime I tried to stamp, it just didn't come out the way I wanted. This was my first attempt at SC113. Oh, well...pressing onward, now that I've shown my junk cards, maybe my muse will return and I can get in the groove again. lol
