Here For You

I found myself in need of a few sympathy cards, so I decided to use the SCS sketch to make the first one. I KINDA screwed up the sketch, but I think the general idea is there!! My image panel is just a little too low, but oh well!! I stamped my image from Central Park on Kraft with Basic Black ink, and then layered it with Whisper White and Basic Black. I added a piece of Kraft Taffeta and Black Gingham around it too. The DP's are from the Urban Oasis and Kraft DSP packs. I used some more of my yummy Corduroy button brads too...I just LOVE those things!! My sentiment, which is actually why I screwed up my sketch, is from the Friends 24-7 stamp set. It is perfect for an elegant sympathy card. Well, that is it for me now, I think 3 posts in one day is pushing your patience a tad, LOL!! Thanks and have a great day!!

Hooga Booga!!

Here we are at day TWO of my MFT peeks, and let me tell you, I am in LOVE with these new stamp sets. They are AWESOME!! Lets get done with the important business first, and then we will look at my SUPAH cute new card!!
My Favorite Things (http://www.mftstamps.com/) is having a New Release Cocktail Party on Wednesday, March 4th from 9-10 PM EASTERN. This month there are 5 new sets being released including a Who's that Girl who is hanging with her peeps!Head over to the MFT forum on http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/ to find out all the details and to find out how YOU can be the next MFT Guest Designer. We hope to see you there on Wednesday night.
Okay, now that the official business is taken care of, here is my first card using Hooga Booga. I think this set MIGHT be my new favorite from Stephanie Fizer, but seriously, who can choose?? These little monsters are TOOO CUTE for words and I just want to hug them, lol!! I stamped my little guy on Gina K. White and some K&Co. Hopscotch DP. The monster was paper pieced and then the rest was colored with my Copics and SU markers. The face was stamped separately and popped up to give it some more dimension. I then layered it with Pumpkin Pie and Ballet Blue. The embellishments are all from SU, except for the spiral clips.
Well, that is it for me now...gotta get to my sister's to watch my nephew again. He is pretty sick and we are trying to keep him out of the cold as much as possible!! Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!!

Fashionably Late...

which is exactly what I am going to be if I don't get OFF the computer and get on the road!! Super quick post today girls!! Here is my card for the SCS Color Challenge- Chocolate Chip, Kiwi Kiss and Pink Passion-shudder! Hate Pink Passion, still using the first package I ever bought in fact, LOL!! The dress from the SU Humor in High Heels set was stamped three times, twice on Whisper White and once on some Kiwi DSP. I paper pieced the dress, and then cut out just the sash and flower of the third and paper pieced it as well. The accessories are all from SU(Piggy Tales ribbon, and the new large white brads). DP is from the Chocolate Chip patterns pack and the rest of the colors are from the challenge. See I told you, SUPAH FAST!! By the way, this picture is HORRIBLE..my setup isn't good in the mornings!! See ya!!
