That's Just Hilarious!!!

Out of all the countries in the world, the FIRST comment picked the right one!! I was born in Wuertzberg, West Germany-back when there was an east and west. My dad was in the Army and was stationed there. Thanks for the guess

Another Entry, Another Giveaway!!

PHEWWW!!! I barely made it under the wire with this entry for the My Favorite Things Guest Designer challenge. They are due by 10est, and I got mine in by 9ish. I was beginning to wonder if I would get it done in time. I did one last night, because I was unsure if I would be able to stamp today. I had all day to think about something to do if I got home in time, and still didn't have a clue when I got here. I knew that I needed a card for a Bridal Shower on Saturday, so I decided I would make something for it with the MFT set Boho Blossoms. I have to admit, I love this set, but I have a hard time working with it. This is honestly the first card I have made with it that I really love!! I started by stamping the heart in versamark on both Pretty in Pink and Regal Rose. I embossed both with white embossing powder and cut them out. I then glued them to pieces of mulberry paper and tore the edges of it. The strip behind them is RR, PP and some paper from the SU prints pack. The base is RR, PP, and WW, which I ran through the cuttlebug with my NEW embossing folder Birds and Swirls. I sponged the edges with PP in to give them some definition. The sentiment was stamped with white craft ink on PP and the hardware is from the SU stylized silver in the new Mini catty. It is a must have if you ask me!! The bow is white organdy which I tied in a square knot, then pink taffeta, white organdy, and then one more of each tied on. I like a big bow, and this is the only way I can get one to work right. I apologize for the bad picture, I must have taken 20 of this card from every angle, but just couldn't get a good shot of it.
By the way, for all you blog stalkers out there(oh come on, you KNOW who you are). I accidentally ended up with two Perfectly Paisley embossing folders. The first person to guess where I was born gets it. Here is a hint: I was not born in the US. I don't expect you to know the city, I just need a country. Good Luck!!

It's So Sad...

I have to help my Mom pack tomorrow, so I am not sure if I will have time to stamp. boohooooooooohoooo. So, in preparation for that, I stamped a lot today to make up for it.hehe
I actually have 4 cards ready to go, but I am only going to share 3 of them. I have a friend who likes to be surprised by her Easter cards, so I am keeping it a secret, everyone else, if you have been keeping up, I can GUARANTEE that you have seen yours!!! I try to keep some a secret, but I love to share what I do, so it is hard for me!! The first two cards were made using the Whipper Snapper set Spring Has Sprung. I stamped the main images on Whisper White with Black Stazon. I colored them in using my SU markers and aquapainter. The images were outlined with my prismacolor cool grey marker to make them stand out a bit. The top card uses Pretty in Pink and Regal Rose for the colors. I used my Martha Stewart edge punch to get the embossed scallop on my Pretty in Pink DSP from the Prints Pack. I seriously don't know what I am going to do, I am about to run out of all my favorite colors from that thing!! I tied a square knot with white taffeta and added some pink gingham to it. The next card is Certainly Celery, Apricot Appeal, Pretty in Pink, and Apricot Appeal DSP from the Prints pack. I used the same colors on the sentiment panel. I drew the dots on with my white gel pen and added some cute button brads.
This last card was made for the My Favorite Things guest designer challenge. The challenge was to make a monochromatic card. I used the Eggstra Special set. I stamped the chick in Black Stazon on Whisper White. I colored it in using my SU markers and blended with my aquapainter. I then outlined the whole thing with my prismacolor marker and covered it with icicle stickles to make it sparkly!! I cut it out, and the scalloped layers with my nestabilities. I used Apricot Appeal, Whisper White and Apricot Appeal DSP from the prints pack. I wanted a lot of layers on this , if you couldn't already tell. I stamped the sentiment and then used my paper piercer and matt pack to frame it. I love the way it looks!!! I put three white brads in the bottom corner and tied an apricot square knot on the side and it was done! Wish me luck!!
