Yikes! it's been ages since I've posted!  I guess life just gets busy and we don't always get to do the things we'd like to do.  I have been stamping, just not photographing everything!  This is one of the Christmas cards we made last Saturday at my annual Christmas Stamp-A-Stack.  After I took the pic I noticed my Rhinestone Jewel was off a bit...oh well.
I'm hoping to take lots of pictures this weekend at the Providence Regional Seminar.  My sister (my up-line) and I will be going together.  Stampin' Up! always puts on a great seminar.  I'm ready to get inspired, get creative and get STAMPING!!
Have a blessed day!

what did i use on this card?
paper:  very vanilla cs, glitter paper
ink:  perfect plum
stamps:  papaya collage, word play
extras:  polka dots embossing folder, perfect plum taffeta ribbon, snow flurry bigz die, big shot

Father's Day..."Open Sea"

Father's Day or any "Mans Day"
I've been wanting to use this set for awhile, but I haven't had the chance.  Father's Day is the perfect day for the "Open Sea".  This set would be good for a Mans Birthday or even a sympathy card.  I can't wait to try it out on a scrapbook page!  I think that would look awesome!

 The first photo is of the card closed.  I used 2 brads and some hemp twine to keep it together.

The second picture is the card open.  I used the "You mean the world to me" from "Word Play".

This last shot is the card completely opened.

 If you'd like to make this card at home, just leave me your e-mail in the comments section and I'll give you the dimensions and tell you how I made it.

Thanks for stopping by,
Have a blessed day,

(for those who attend my Monday Make-N-Takes, this is one of the cards we're making this Monday)

Blessings of Summer

Happy Labor Day!  It's been a long summer and it sure did end with a bang here in Ct!  Hurricane Irene knocked out our electricity for 2 1/2 days.  After getting it back we realized our internet, phone and cable wasn't working.  It then took until this past Saturday for At & T to get it fixed!  The kids and I have decided that we can live without electricity but not without TV!
Hope you all had a wonderful, blessed summer!  Here is a photo taken of my family at Timothy Hill Christian Camp in MA. this summer after my daughter Elena was baptized into Christ by her dad!  God is good!

graduation owl (ppa98 sketch challenge)

I gave this card to my friends son who will be graduating high school this week!  It's funny how OLD you feel when a friends child reaches a milestone!  My kids have a ways to go as far as graduations and things like that, but it seems our close friends all have children who are either married, in college or just leaving high school.  My girls will be entering 8th and 5th grade this fall.  Maybe there's a method to our madness......we're the youngest of all our friends! (and there kids used to babysit for us)!!

have a great day, and thank you for stopping by,

what i used on this card:
stamps:  word play
paper:  naturals ivory, very vanilla, marina mist, night of navy, soft suede, newsprint dsp
ink:  not quite navy
extras:  owl punch, antique brad
