My 42d Anniversary

No cards today, but I thought I would share the view from my CP office. These are the flowers my husband got me for our anniversary. He had the florist deliver them to the CP (craft palace.) They make me smile.

WOYWW Aug 24

I am not much of a Halloween person, but I have several friends who list it among one of their favorite holidays. So, in the interest of sharing with friends, and you know who you are, I am sharing these pics for my workspace Wednesday. Hope you enjoy.

 I have to thank Angie Juda for this idea. She posted this fun Hershey's kiss holder on her blog today with a link to the tutorial. It is fun to make.

First SAS

Here are the rest of the cards from my first Stamp-A-Stack. I gave my Mom the actual cards last night and she was very happy. We chuckle over the fact that she was ready to take them right out the door when she saw them. I have to watch her closely. Ha ha.

These cards are more bright and feminine and I had a good time designing them. I am trying to use more of the Big Shot dies that I have on my shelf so that I am taking advantage of the items I have. For me, it is so easy to just use the new things,  but I want to get better at using a broad selection. Now that I have committed that thought to the blog it will encourage me to remember to actually do it. TFL

My First SAS

Today I thought I would share a couple of the cards we made at my first Stamp-A-Stack. My Mom liked them so much she was ready to take them home with her yesterday. (She wasn't able to attend the event.) I had to ask her to wait until I took pictures of them first. She encourages me. Thanks Mom.

I wanted to include a couple of masculine cards and I think these fit the bill. I lined the inside of the card with Very Vanilla to make it easier to write a little note.

The other cards are more feminine and I will show those to you later. TFL

Well Behaved Women

I like our punches for making flowers because they are easy and fast. However, some times I like to cut the flowers out with scissors. I find it relaxing and I like the challenge of getting an even line around the card. (I have friends who will tell you they think I am nuts.) Just one of my quirks.

The recipe for today's card is:
Paper: Just Add Cake DSP, Wild Wasabi, Basic Black, and Wicker White
Ink: Wild Wasabi, Peach Parfait, and Poppy Parade
Stamps: Favorite Thoughts and Raining Flowers
Accessories: Peach Parfait Poly Ribbon

Well Worn Greetings

Well Worn DSP is now one of my favorite papers. ( I am such a fickle person when it comes to DSP.) But I like this paper because I think it works well for all types of cards. Is gender neutral an option? Ha ha.
The recipe for theses cards includes:
Paper: Crumb Cake, Not Quite Navy, & Well Worn DSP
Ink: Rich Razzleberry
Stamp Set: Swirls & Curls Verses
Accessories: Cherry Cobbler Scallop Dots Ribbon, Lace Ribbon Border Punch, Dotted Scallop Ribbon Punch, and Regal Buttons
