Once again, I was MIA for a whole week. I didn't make it to my craft room for five days. Man, it feels good to get down here.
Here is some blogging news.....I am still on the look out for Loanne. She won the Scor-Pal on my last blog candy. I left her a message on her blog, but I have not heard from her. If anyone knows Loanne, please ask her to email me her address.
I am in the works to have another blog candy. I would like to have more followers to my blog, so if you don't currently follow, you should. It will include new and current followers!!!
Here are my creations for this week...
I made this for my Mom. Luckily for me, she doesn't ever look at my blog. She is always doing such NICE stuff for me. I always say Thank You, but I never send her a card. She will appreciate this!!
Cardstock: Stampin' Up Basic Black; Patterned Paper, Stickers, Tag: Sera Sera by K& Company (thank you Lesley); Letters: Thickers; Stickles; and unknown ribbon.
It seems like every week these days I have been making birthday cards for co-workers. There are 75 of us, so it is bound to happen.
Cardstock: Close to Cocoa, Bordering Blue, Pretty In Pink, Whisper White (Stampin' Up); Patterned Paper: Bella Bleu and Bella Birds (Stampin' Up); Stamps: Sincere Salutions (Stampin' Up) and Birdhouse Flourish (Inkadinkado), Ink: Close to Cocoa, Chocolate Chip (Stampin' Up); Rhinestones: unknown
Last but not least...
I was playing with my Tim Holtz products today and came up with this. I am giving this to my good friend Jen. She has a very full plate and hopefully this can be a nice eye candy for her.

Have a super night!!!
Tuesday, March 10, 2009
I just got done with my work week and I am now in Great Falls, Montana for a visit with family and friends! I attended a music festival at the local high school here. They had a guest conductor from the University of Wyoming that was amazing! My son was a member of the choir, therefore, I really enjoyed it.
It is a crazy Winter Wonderland here. The temperature is -4 and snowing like crazy! If I can get a good picture of something other than a car accident, I will post.
I have missed my crafty posts this past week, but I'm not really sure where the week or the weekend went. Some if it is even hard for me to remember, and I wasn't drinking margarita's either! Those of you that are on my friends list at Facebook, probably saw the post that said I'd rather be drinking margarita's. That was just an expression!! *giggle*
I will be leaving Great Falls early in the morning I should be home in my cozy craft room by noon and I am going to attack 365 cards challenges!!
OMG...I just remembered that I am having a card class tomorrow night. Scratch 365 cards, I better prepare for that!!
By the way... I my 3 projects with the same stamp challenge, won over at If The Shoe Fits Scrap It blog. Yah....Please check out their challenges for this week!!!!
See you tomorrow!!!

I am also entering this in the 365 Cards, Less Is More challenge. We were asked not to use more than two embellishments. I consider an embellishment a brad, button or flower. My Stickles and Liquid Pearls may be considered embellies here.
Until tomorrow!! Good night!~
I made the background for this card a few days ago. I was messing with the Distress Ink smoosh techniques and actually set this aside, because I wasn't very happy with it. Last night after fussy cutting these flowers, I was really happy I didn't throw it out!! I was able to use two of my new SU sets on this (actually three, but don't want to cheat). I stamped the distressed background with the Kindred Spirits stamps, and the flowers are the Playful Petals set. The Distress inks that I used are Worn Lipstick, Broken China, Peeled Paint, and Spiced Marmalade. To bling it up a bit, I used Stickles, Turquoise, Star Dust, and Cotton Candy. The SU inks used are Almost Amethyst, Apricot Appeal, Old Olive, Pretty In Pink and Certainly Celery.
My cute little altered notebook here is for If The Shoe Fits...Scrap It challenge. I am not sure if I will be disqualified, because I made my own notebook with my Bind It All. The cover is acetate that I ran through the Big Shot with a CH embossing folder. I then Stickled the whole thing and placed the adorable MS butterfly punches on it. I used Liquid Pearls, Petal Pink and Mint Green on the bodies. The ribbon is SU. I hope this counts.

For my last project I made a card. I used the same stamp from the "Floral Tattoo". The background is TH's Worn Lipstick, Peeled Paint, Broken China, and Spiced Marmalade Distress Inks. The stamp was embossed with Peeled Paint embossing powder. I used a TH border mask along the bottom and a SU Old Olive 5/8" ribbon. The sentiment is a TH Stampers Anonymous stamp from the "Fancy Flourish" set.
