Baby Girl Card

Seems there was a rush of little girl babies born, so here's a card using my all time favorite baby stamp from The Cat's Pajamas. The designer paper was from Michael's bought a few moons ago.

Black, White and a little Green

I'm usually not one to gravitate towards green for my cards -- usually pink! BUT, I saw a magazine ad using black, white and this color green and it looked fab. So, here's my play with it.

My supplies are all stamping up - and the stamp set is Best Kind of Friend.

Hope you're enjoying a great summer evening. I'm having a hard time figuring out what I want to do!

Happily Ever After ...

Here's a quick wedding card using my Cat's Pajamas stamps. I think the heart on the car is just adorable. I was thinking the car is a super cute stamp for stamping on envelopes too.

Thanks for looking.

Ice Ice Baby ....

This turned out to be a fun card! I like the bright colors! I'd eat one of those popsicles. heheee.

The sentiments are from Cat's pajamas and the Chill Out is just a $1 Michaels stamp. The popsicles are from the Just Beachy Stampin Up set.

Thanks for looking -- here's to long summer afternoons and sunsets.

Best Eyeshadow Ever!

If you're like me, you are ALWAYS on the lookout for fabulous makeup. Living in Chicago (let's see, 50 degrees and rainy in June) I tend to look washed out. Anything to perk up my face and keep me from looking like I'm on the set of Twilight is appreciated.

SO. A friend who has dazzling wonderful makeup always finally revealed one of her tip top secrets -- The Stila Champagne Glow eyeshadow trio. Lucky me, I found it at Sephora (Ulta was sold out, but check there with your coupon!) and I LOVE IT. I tend to revert to a preschooler trying to put on makeup, but even I couldn't mess this up.

I highly recommend it.
Here's a link:
How can it be Sunday already? I swear it was just Friday night 30 seconds ago.

Happy Birthday!

Seems that I ALWAYS need birthday cards.! Now that gracious Elizabeth has posted a link to my blog, I had better post a card!
So, here goes.
This is a Stampendous Birthday Brackets card using an old Mojo Monday sketch. The stamp is a clear sheet stamp from Michaels - those 40% off coupons are just lovely!

Hope you are enjoying your weekend!


Now that the sun in shining and lighter weather has arrived, if you're like me, you are looking for some tasty, but light foods. Enter - this delicious lemon marinade recipe. It doesn't have an overpowering lemon taste and is divine off the grill on a hot day.

Fluffles carb overdose.

Hello Stampinistas!
Here's a cute birthday card where Fluffles falls off the wagon and has a carb binge ... never happens to us, right? ;) I started with white cardstock, then added in a frame of black. I used my Stampin'up Parisian Summer pink designer paper to add in three frames for the background accent. A stamp of Fluffles using Stazon-black to make my image pop - and Boom! We're about done. Polished off with a pink pirhouette ribbon, also from Stampin up.

Summary of goodies used:
Stamps: Fluffles, Stampendous
Ink: Stazon Black
Coloring: Prisma Colored pencils, using a blender pen to soften the colors
Background Paper: White and Black cardstock
Designer Paper: Stampin up, Parisian Summer
Ribbon: Stampin up, Pink Pirhouette

Thanks for looking. Cheers, beauties!
