Things that fly in the night

I love Riley stamps! They are soo fun! I was so blessed to have my bestest stamping buddy come over last night, we got more laughing and talking than stamping done, but sometimes that is so needed. I love all the great stuff that's in the new SU catty. Most all of the new dp is calling to me...must resist...must resist. (In Borg voice) Resistance is Futile! Card deets: Cardstock-basic black, vintage violet, dp from Micael's. Stamps- Riley (Hanna Stamps). Ink-palette black, image colored with copics and glitter copics. Accessories- large brad, gemstone brad, dewdrops, ticket punch, square scallop punch and ribbon.

Tales of coloring gone wrong

I pulled out this old set from SU, it's from '96, but I realized why I didn't like the cornicopia die from this set...its too hard for me to color well. Oh well, we live but to try, try, try again. Such is our madness in stamping.
Card deets: Cardstock- Chocolate chip, Creamy Caramel, white, dp. Stamps-Grand Cornicopia, Greet Greetings 2 (?). Ink-basic black, image colored with copics and colored pencils. Accessories- cuttlebug folder, clear diamond brads

So its a beautiful day today, we'll probably be getting buckets of rain tomorrow from the hurricane in florida, but for today its nice out. We've been watching the Olympics and last night talked about which event we could see ourselves doing if we had the ability. It was fun to "imagine" for a bit, like when we were kids. Where did all that fun go? I know that the swing set in my backyard growing up was more than that. It was a pirate ship, a rocket, a wagon crossing the prairie to Oregon, and a few times the bridge on the starship Enterprise. Our imaginations took us so many places then. Anywho, enough ramblings of a caffiene deprived person. On to the card, I love making the ants "walk" across the bottom:

It's in the bag

Ok, so I couldn't take it anymore. I had seen so many stinking cute version of this bag and finally broke down and tried it. Super easy-peasy! I can't believe that I didn't try it before!
