For Baby Swap Card.....

Good Morning & Happy Thursday Friends!

My post for today is showcasing the card I made for a Demo Swap that I participate in.  Our challenge for this month was to make a baby card using DSP.  This was quite the challenge for me because I don't have any kind of baby paper....I have some baby stamps but NO paper sooooo; I had to put on my thinking cap! 

I decided to use the Just Add Cake DSP because I thought I could make it *look* babyish.  It does have some *baby like* colors & patterns & I feel that the ones I chose totally go with the baby theme!!  I colored my duck image with markers, added some ribbon & finished it off with some bling.  I'm quite happy with the finished result & I hope the ladies in our swap will be pleased too!!

Well, I need to get back to my never ending laundry!  Thanks so much for stopping by & have a great rest of the day!!!
Until Next Time,
Hugs & Love,

Happy to be back......

Good Morning & Happy Monday Friends!

First, let me say that I am so very sorry for disappearing like I did!  My entire family was sick & as usual; I was the last one to catch the ickies.  I'm happy to report that we're all back to 100% & feeling great.....for the moment LOL!!

I did manage to get my Diva swap cards made for our monthly meeting as soon as I started to feel a bit better.  I was thinking Halloween & pulled out my fave stamp set---House of Haunts & stamped away!!  I embossed my image with black embossing powder & sponged to my hearts content....can you tell that I LOVE to sponge!  I also decided to dry emboss my black background with the spiderweb embossing folder, add some champagne mist shimmer paint & distress all my edges....I had flakes of paper all over the place LOL but the end result was worth it to me!!!

I do hope you enjoy my post & I really appreciate you all for sticking around!!!  I'm off to get my day started so I better get going!  Thanks so much for stopping by & have a great rest of the day!!!
Until Next Time,
Hugs & Love,

I have a very quick post for you today:  This will be one of the make & takes at my Open House on Friday.  I used the layout of the card on page 11 of the Holiday Mini catalog & added my own flair as usual :-)  I also used Champagne Mist Shimmer Paint on the web but unfortunately you can't see it in the photo!  I'm looking forward to seeing my friends & having a great time!!!

Fun House of Haunts Creation....

Good Morning & Happy Friday Everyone!!!!

I'm so very excited about the new Holiday Mini that went live yesterday!  I do LOVE a lot of the new products that are available to order & even though I didn't get any of the new Halloween stuff; I think my card still SCREAMS Happy Halloween!!!!

I started this off with a pretty basic layout that I cased from one of my swap group friends & proceeded to add my own lil' flair!  That spooky image was just dying to be sponged so I went at it & I am VERY happy with how it turned out!  I couldn't leave the sentiment stark white so I sponged that baby too LOL!!  I added ink to my embossed background, stamped some trees from Spooky Bingo Bits & added my ribbon.....DONE!!!!!

I have a pretty busy day & weekend ahead of me with my Holiday Mini Open House coming up so I need to get back to work!  Thanks so much for stopping by & I hope you all have a FABULOUS weekend!!!!!
Until Next Time,
Hugs & Love,
