Merry Christmas....WHAT?

I feel a little sick when I think that Christmas is not that far off, less than 4 months away...Excuse me let me wipe my tears.

This card turned out really cool, it lays flat and opens to a box, great for a gift or tags.

Hello water color

If you have not played with the water color crayons from SU! I think you really should ask your demo about them, if you don't have a demo I'd be happy to hook you up.

They are a great way to color images or make pretty backgrounds.  This was so simple, scribble the crayons on the water color paper (just like when you were a kid) then use an aqua painter or a paintbrush to blend.  It's a super fun way to make a background.

NOTE: some say stamp first some say stamp last.  if you stamp last make sure your paper is 100% dry or it will be a mess.  I stamp first!

Do you dig gnomes?


I am just loving these gnome stamps from there she goes clear stamps.  They are so fun!  My mother in law is not a gnome fan, so to torture her a little (hee hee) I made a bunch to send her.  This is the next in line!

Love you UMA!

C.A.S card for OWH's skip!

What is a skip?  A skip is a small little blog hop full of BIG inspiration.

What is a C.A.S? Clean and Simple

What is OWH??  What u are gonna ask me that?  to learn more about OWH go HERE!

  When I was asked by the OWH team, to add a CAS card for the skip, I knew I wanted to do a pretty background.  I along with many stampers tend to add layers, and embellishments, and forget to just let it alone, to be simple and we'll to know when to stop.  For this card, I used a new STAMPIN UP! set.  I loved this set the minute I saw it.  I really stamped in some yummy summer colors, added pearls to the centers and that was it, mounted it on a co-ordinating color and done.

 Remember stampers, it's okay to have one layer, it's okay NOT to add a sentiment, sticker, flower etc..etc..  Just go back to the roots of stamping.   Paper & Ink!

Thank you to Barbara at OWH for thinking of me for this skip.

Please if you have not check out OWH and there effort do so NOW you will not regret it!
