Happy Saturday! This was a swap that I did at our last imprints meeting. I hadn't realized that I never posted it. I really love this stamp set and had just purchased it si I thought what better time to break it in than to use it for my swap cards. I decided to change my card size up from the standard size card, and use our scallop square die. I think it makes such a cute card. At our imprints we not only do a swap we also have a contest. I didn't win this swap card contest {boo hoo}, maybe next time. There were a lot of great cards to choose from I'm really lucky to be part of a group of very talented ladies. It's a rainy day here in Tracy, CA so I'm off to organize my stamp room and create the day away. Happy Stampin'!

Happy Birthday, Hannah!

Happy Monday All, I hope that you all had a great weekend. I sure did it was a busy, busy weekend. We went to Hannah's 4 yr birthday party which this card was for and we had a blast of course I think my son Caleb's favorite part of the party was cake I couldn't keep him away from it. I also attended my first Longaberger party on Sunday which I have a feeling won't be my last. If you have never heard of it the make these amazing baskets by hand you can check it out by visiting Treva Alviso website here.

As for my post today as mentioned this card went to Hannah or should I say to Hannah's mom who is a fellow SU! demonstrator as well. The theme was Princess Party so when making my card I thought I would join in the theme. To be honest I have had the worst creative brain freeze lately I'm hoping to get my mojo back. So with that said I wasn't sure of my card, but the other mommy's and demo's at the party liked so I guess all is good. What do you think and do any of you get those creative blocks? Thanks for stopping by but I gotta run I have a sick child to tend to and wants some TLC.

Paper: Crumb Cake, Regal Rose, Whisper White and Nursery Suite DSP
Stamp Sets: Artistic Etchings

OK, so I'm sure you are thinking you may have seen this card somewhere, well you are absolutely right I cased this card from the current Stampin' Up catalog on page 158. This card caught my eye when I saw how the ribbon draped down. This card was made for a charity raffle. We needed a masculine birthday so we {meaning me and my down line Jenn} went to our new handy color coach and came up with this color combo which i really ended up liking a lot. Love that NEW color coach it's really been helpful with taking me out of my normal choice of color combinations and getting me to really step out of the box. If you don't have one yet it should definitely be a must have on your wish list! It's a gotta have! =D Enjoy your Saturday and Happy Stamping.

Paper: Crumb Cake, Very Vanilla, Cajun Craze
Stamp Set: Everything Nice
