Another JustRite DIY card

I love the endless possibilities the JustRite DIY monogram stampers give you. The sky is the limit! For this card I used the clear Stampendous set "Holiday Chick" to coordinate with my JustRite DIY "Hey Chick" sentiment. The chick is popped up with a demensional and covered with Doodlebug crushed velvet flock. I love how it turned out. The circle of rhinstones took a near lifetime to put on but it was worth it in the end.

Supplies: SU Black and Summer Sun CS, GP white CS, DCWV DP, Stampendous Holiday Chick stamp set, JustRite DIY monogram stamper, SU ticket corner punch, self adhesive rhinestones from Michael's, Doodlebug crushed velvet flock, Cuttlebug embossing folder.

Hope you are all enjoying your day! It is a rainy one here in Wisconsin today, but I can't complain because we REALLY REALLY need the rain! Thanks for stopping by!

5 years...where does the time go?

Annabelle is going to be 5 in a couple weeks...I can't believe she is almost 5. 5 years already...amazing. As first time parents, we had no idea what to do with her when she was born. Everyone just kept telling us it would get better after a few months...a few months, that seemed like a lifetime, now here we are almost 5 years later!
We are having a birthday party in a couple weeks and these are the invitations that I made. She has never had a real birthday party so the excitement builds each day. Every day she tells me how many days left until her birthday and how many days until her party (which is the day after her birthday). She is just so cute!
For the invites I used the JustRite DIY monogram stamper and a clear kids birthday set from Fiskars. I wanted to stay as simple as possible since I was making 20 of these, LOL.
I didn't have the rhinestones on my first version but I thought they were too plain so the rhinestones added the finishing touch (and an extra $0.20 per invite to mail)

Thanks for stopping by today. I hope you have a wonderful day!

Don't Forget...

We'd love to see you play along with this week's DRS Designs blog challenge....ATC's.
Just make an ATC and use the keyword DRSC3 when you upload to SCS. You can also leave a direct link to your ATC in the comments on the DRS blog!

I'm Back!

Ok, so I've been here all along, but my computer hasn't been. We finally got our computer back from the Apple store today and I am SOOOOO happy!!! I have been lost these past 4 days without it!
Unfortunately I don't have any daylight left to take pictures tonight so you'll have to stop back tomorrow to see what I have been up to the past couple days!
Hope you all have a wonderful night!

I wanted to share some exciting news yesterday but we took the kids for a family day in Wisconsin Dells and well, I was just too tuckered out when we got home to post on my blog.
So without further ado, here is my "EXCITING NEWS"...
A month or so ago I applied for a spot on the design team for Firecracker Designs by Pamela. Last week I got a message from Pamela telling me I made the team. I can't tell you how excited I am. I am joined on the design team by a wonderfully talented bunch of ladies and I can't wait to work with them. I have links to all of their blogs listed on my side bar!

And now for the "MORE"...Pamela has 4 awesome sets coming out this month. Click HERE for a peak at the new sets (our main computer is at the Apple store getting repaired so I'm working on my laptop and doesn't exactly always cooperate. Because of this I can't post a picture, only a link right now, sorry!!).
There is a special Pre-order special going on for the next few days are the deets:
You can order all 4 sets for the great price of $23.96!! That’s a savings of $12.00!! (It's like getting a set for free!!!) Just go to the pre-order page, and click “get it” …it's that easy! You will have until Sep 7th to place your pre-order.
Sorry for my lack of pictures, hopefully our computer will be ready to be picked up tomorrow and I can get back into my normal blogging routine, LOL!
I hope you all had a wonderful holiday weekend. Thanks for stopping by today!

DRS Challenge #3 - ATC's

Are you ready for a new DRS Designs blog challenge? This week we are making artist trading cards or ATC's! These little projects measure 2.5" x 3.5". The DRS design team members were asked to make two ATC's that are the for the challenge and one to hang onto until the next challenge in 2 weeks.
We'd love for you to join us in our challenges. If you choose, you can make just one ATC but be sure you hang onto it (put it in a safe place in your craft area - is there one?! LOL) and check back to join in on the second part of this challenge! Be sure to post a comment with a direct link to your project (on the DRS blog) so we can come check it out! Tell your friends too, the more the merrier! If you upload to SCS, please use the keyword DRSC3.
Check out the DRS Designs blog to see the ATC's made by the talented design team!
As I've stated before, a small canvas is a HUGE challenge for me. Because of the limited space, I made my ATC's fairly simple. What do you think? Don't you love the shimmery frog daddy and frog mama. I bet you can guess how I got them that way...SHIMMERZ!!!

Supplies used: Frog Daddy and Frog Mama stamps from DRS Designs, Green Galore, Real Red and Pixie Pink CS from SU, Bic Mark*It permanent markers, Green Olive Shimmerz, foam dimensionals, misc ribbon, misc self adhesive gems.

Thanks for stopping by. I hope you are all having a happy and safe holiday weekend!
