Hope you are having a great weekend!

Before I head out the door to go see X-Files (Tom is watching the kids so I can go this morning), I thought I would share a card I made a few days ago. All CS used is SU, DP is Basic Grey and SU, Stamps used "French Script" from SU and "Flowers and Holly" from TAC, and the black dots are from the $1 scrapbooking area at Joann's. I colored the hibiscus with colored pencils and OMS.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you all have a wonderful day!

I too love lots of stamp companies..but I would have to say Stampin up is one of my most favorites. Thanks for the chance to win.

Kim, please send me an email with your snail mail addy and I will get your blog candy sent out right away.

For those of you wondering my favorite stamp set.....SU's Noteworthy. Sounds like a funny choice but I've used that set SO many times. I love the sentiments and design elements in it. Whenever I am stuck on a card I pull that set out. Best of all, it was FREE!!! Funny thing is, for a while I even kept a spare Noteworthy set, just in case something happened to my first one. If I had to pick a favorite stamp current absolute favorite would be Inkadinkado.

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend. I am hoping to do some stamping, but not until after I go see the new X-Files movie...YAY!!!! Back in the day, my Sunday nights were dedicated to nothing else except X-Files. I can't wait to see the movie. For a great sneak peak, check out the movie trailer HERE. And as an extra BONUS for all of you Fox Mulder/David Duchovny HERE to listen to one of my favorite tunes! (yes, I know I'm a total geek).

Have a great day and thanks for stopping by!

Color Throwdown and a Sketch Challenge

Good Morning! It has been a rough week around here. Both kids are sick. We were up all night worrying about Annabelle because even the smallest cold turns into a huge deal because of her asthma issues. She is up early this morning using her nebulizer. I'm hoping last night was the worst of it.
On a happier note, I have a card to share. I even managed to do 2 challenges with one card, yay! I saw this card layout on Melissa Phillips' blog LilyBean's Paperie the other day and knew I had to try it out. It is a fun one. I was also able to incorporate this weeks Color Throwdown week 3 challenge, sort of (I accidentally used Temping Tourquoise instead of Taken with Teal).
The stamps I used are from SU and Inkadinkado. CS is SU and DP is BoBunny. Glitter is Dazzling Diamonds from SU and the self adhesive pearls are from the Target $1 bin. Sometime between the time I made this and photographed it I lost one of the pearls off one of the flower blooms so I'll have to replace that but I thought I would share the picture anyway.

I hope you have a wonderful day! Don't forget to sign up for my blog candy HERE.

Monday already?

I can't believe it is Monday already. Where did the weekend go? The kids started their 2 week summer preschool session today so I have 3 hours of ME time, YAY!
I have a couple errands to run but I thought I'd post a quick card before heading out.
This is a really simple card layout but for some reason I love it. I've made this same card with different colors and stamps many times and I always like how it turns out. This card was a little difficult to photo. The orange CS is Bazzil bling and it is hard to get a good picture. The stamps used for this card are all from DRS Designs. I really love how this card turned out!

Thanks for stopping by today and don't forget to sign up for my blog candy in the previous post!
Have a great day!

I wanted to post a little blog candy since I haven't had any in a while. Once again I am giving away an Autumn Leaves clear stamp set. If you are wondering why I keep giving away the same set, it is because Target had them on clearance for $3 a long time ago and I bought a bunch to use as blog candy and/or gifts. It is a fun holiday set! I'll also throw in a few other mystery goodies!
All you need to do for a chance to win this blog candy is leave me a comment on this post telling me your favorite stamp/stamp set ever...any brand/company. I will draw a name from all of the entries on Friday.
I hope you are all enjoying your weekend! Thanks for stopping by!
