Featured Stamper- Lost in the 60's

Today's featured stamper on SCS is Diane(Lost in the 60's). She has a fantastic gallery. I chose this card of hers to CASE. I changed the colors, images, and embossing folder. I also added some brads to the top corner. The stamp set I used is the Fall/Winter preview set Fresh Cuts from SU. I stamped it in Black Stazon twice, and punched out just the flower on the punched out piece. I colored the flower in with my red glitter pen just to give it a pop of color. The rest is pretty easy, and I am exhausted!! Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!!

A Flower Card

This weeks limited supplies challenge was to make a card that was not a normal shape. No squares, rectangles, circles, ya know. So I decided to make a flower shaped card. To make my stencil, I punched out 6 circles with my 1 3/8in circle punch and glued them down on my paper in the shape of a flower. I then drew around them with a black marker and cut it out. Easy Peasy. The base is Purely Pomegranate, and to make the layers, I punched out Blue Bayou with my 1 1/4in punch and some BB DSP with my 1" punch and layered them on. The main image is from the SU set She's All That, and I cut it as well as it's layers out with my Cuttlebug and Nestabilities. I added a spiral clip with PP and BB double stitched ribbon on it. The flowers are the shimmery brides confetti from Michaels which I added some silver dew drops to. I am off to try to do some more challenges, I LOVE em!!

Tag, I'm It!!

So I got tagged by two different people, Chat and Cindy, and since I love a good game of tag, I am gonna play along. The"rules" of the game: Each player answers questions about themselves. At the end of the post, the player then tags 5-6 people and posts their names, then goes to their blogs and leaves them a comment, letting them know they’ve been tagged and asking them to read your blog. Let the person who tagged you know when you’ve posted your answer.

Here goes:Ten Years Ago: I was in my second year of college and and working full time at a restaurant as a Pantry Chef. Most awesome job I ever had, totally challenging and demanding- loved it!!

Five thing in today’s ‘to do’ list:
1. Go to Work-blech
2. Vacumn and dust-blech
3. pull weeds-blech
4. catch up my google reader-only 800 posts, no biggie
5. STAMPPPPPPP-yayyyyy!!(truth be told, I skipped number three, but I did write it on the list just so that I appear to care)

Snacks I enjoy: all of them in no particular order, hehe

Things I would do if I was a millionaire: Pay off all my bills as well as my siblings and parents and buy a tank of gas- I believe I may be broke by then!!jk I would totally travel around and meet all my stampin friends, after that, build a house and have the most awesome stamp room known to man!

Places I have lived: okay, brace yourselves-Germany, Georgia, Tennessee, Kentucky, Florida, Okinawa, Illinois-phewwww
