Medallion beauty

Isn't this gorgeous...if I do say so myself?!! I LOVE this medallion stamp and when I got my new catalog this was the one stamp I just HAD to have! It wasn't even a want...I needed it! ;) This was a very simple card but I think it is also quite elegant looking. I stamped the medallion in crushed curry on vanilla paper. Then I spritzed it with close to cocoa. Last thing was to add a build-a-brad to the center. I made 5 of these in about 10 or 15 minutes. Now I have some on hand when I need a gorgeous card! :)
Thanks for coming by! I am excited to show you the banner I have been working on! So check back in on Thursday or Friday to see the cuteness I have been making for my mantle!
chat at ya later!
what's in it?...
stamps...Medallion background

paper...crushed curry, very vanilla, soft suede

ink...crushed curry, close to cocoa marker

accessories...pewter build-a-brad

Birdie thanks

I'm home!!!! I had the most wonderful time in South Padre! We did so many fun things...I won't tell everything...but one thing that was really cool...We went to this Sea Turtle rescue place and they told us that they had babies that were hatching that night and that they would be released in the morning. So we got to go to the beach at sunrise and see baby sea turtle released into the ocean! How cool huh?!!! They were the cutest, most adorable things! It was fun to watch them! So you want to see a picture? Oh that's right you can't cuz guess who went on vacation and left her camera battery at home! That's right no pictures! Can you believe that! Oh well...we still had a wonderful time!
OK...card schtuufff. I made a set of these cards for some thank you's my sister needed. I played with this one alot till I found just the right accessories to balance the card with that darling bird! Easy card but time consuming!

It will be FUN!

I taught the girls at my Stamp Club how to make these...they loved 'em! We filled ours with m&m's but the possibilities of what to put in them are endless! They are perfect little treat holders...I have thought of so many things to do with them already...now I just need a few more hours in the day to do them all! ;)

Summery Tree

Happy 4th of July weekend! Shawners and I kicked off our long weekend last night with an impromptu date! We went to Maggianos for dinner {that place is sooo yummy!!} and then decided to go to see The Proposal. It was a super funny movie...loved it!! :) We are planning on lots of relaxing this weekend. We are just BBQ'in, swimming, watching firework shows and playing games...maybe we will do another movie too!
This is a card I did at my Stamp Club meeting last month to show off some of the new In Colors. I am soooo excited this stamp set made it into the new catalog...it is one of my favorites! I left a sentiment off for now, it is in my card stash until I need it for something!
