I copied an idea I saw on Meridith's blog forever ago... I think it might have been a Valentine's Day card - but she used several different sentiments and stamped them all over her focal panel with different inks. I love it so much and so - here is my rendition using Everyday Sayings. I also used SU's new in color ribbon - I just LOVE the polka dots and the new color of Bermuda Bay. It looks so different to me in person than it does in the catalog!

Hang in there

I love this chandelier from LAD In the Parlor. I stamped it in white ink and embossed it with a sparkly silver embossing powder, then i used my ink sponge and sponged a little white ink all around it so it would "glow" if you will. Love the sentiment as well!

Sparklers for all

such a fun new stamp from Lizzie Anne! This is one of the June singles and I just love it. You can't tell in the picture, but my sparklers are very sparkly! They also have a coordinating digi paper. This stamp makes me want to send out cards for the 4th of July!

another paint chip

so a couple years ago (let's be honest - i still do it!) I was a on a kick to see what i could use for embellishments that didn't cost anything. paint chips are one of those things - they come in just about any color imaginable - they are so easy to use! my brown backing to my flower is a paint chip cyt with a nestabilities die- some stores have larger paint chips that others :) I used LAD Everyday Sayings for the sentiment. I love this set because of all the different fonts - so fun! what do you like the re-use as embellishmenst?

School is out!

School is finally out! Yipee! I'm hoping to have more time to craft and less places to be, but we'll see how that goes! This notebook was make with LAD's school days set. Paper is from the Becky Higgins school kit which i picked up at CK last fall. So fun!

not so crafty

but super yummy! I used this recipe, sort of, i modified it to make it easier. :) and I added more peanut butter cups to the outside. a lot more. i mixed chocoalted frosting and peanut butter instead of making ganache. it was just as yummy. hmm, i could go for a peice now. can you guess which peices were taken first?

Father's Day

Father's day is approaching...what are you doing for Father's day? I have no ideas. I love my dad and want to do something special for him. I wish that he lived closer and I could spend more time with him, this card is perfect for him. I wish that I could just show up at his door for Father's Day. I will always look up to my dad, he's a pretty cool guy.
