I have the hardest time staying away from flowers! I really have to make myself resist! This set is called No One Like You. I think this is the only card I let myself make with flowers for the craft fair. I already had too many in my FOUR full boxes. I needed to branch out a little. OH WAIT! I just realized I already posted a flower one. See, I told you I have a hard time. It could be that 90% of my stamps are flowers. Ugh!

Merry Christmas!

I hope you love this as much as we did. Have a great day!

Lovely Trees

I've had these trees stamped on this paper and sitting around forever, and finally decided to do something with them! I think I was showing someone this technique, and just stuck the piece of paper back in the stamp case. I inked up the trees in Certainly Celery and then used several colors of markers, including blues and purples to tap some ink onto the stamp before pressing it onto the paper.

The trees come from one of my oldest sets, Lovely As a Tree. The background stamp is Canvas.

Pretty Leaves

Autumn Splendor is one of the best sets! I have really enjoyed it. For the most part, I have used it for fall cards. However, as you can see below, you can use it for other things too, just by changing up the colors. The leaves are so beautiful!

This is one of those cards where you could make a bunch, then leave off the greeting and add one when you need it....Happy Birthday, Thank You, Thinking of You, etc.

Fall Tree

One last fall tree! I inked this one in Certainly Celery, then colored the trunk of the tree with a Chocolate Chip marker. I tapped Chocolate Chip and Really Rust markers all over the leaves of the tree before pressing the stamp onto the paper.

This stamp comes from the Lovely as a Tree set. The background is called Sanded.

Cherry Get Well

Here is another card that I made multiples of for the craft fair I did a week or so ago. I love how "happy" it turned out! I worked off of the colors in the patterned paper, which were Riding Hood Red and Kiwi Kiss.

The stamp sets I used were Circle Circus for the background circle designs, Teeny Tiny Wishes for the words, and Cute & Curly for the placard that the words are on.

A Craft Fair

Saturday I did a craft fair and sold some cards. This isn't something I normally do...or ever do. I was sort of talked into it by the sweet little friends I have at the place where it was held. I volunteer there and it was fun to be able to spend some extra time with them.

I made a couple of signs to advertise and figured I'd save them, just in case I ever do this again!

My set-up.

I had plenty of cards, but I made a few over the last week in the categories where I was lacking a little. This is one of them. I made about four of each card while I was making them. It just makes sense to make duplicates, while I've got an idea going! I'll show some more soon.

Teacher Gifts

I was going through pictures last night and found these. Brandon wanted to give gifts to three of his teachers, and I forgot I had taken pictures of them. We just put a Scentsy Room Spray and Hanging Freshener in a cello bag and stamped a card to tie to it. He wrote a sweet message for each one. He had some great teachers this year!

These stamps are from the Thank you Kindly and Charming sets.
During July, Scentsy will be bringing back 20 scents from years past. They were voted on by consultants and customers and the 20 winners will be brought back in "bar form" for one month only!

Leafy Thanks

I quickly made this thank you card last night. I think I'm getting rusty! I need to stamp more, that is for sure! This one didn't require much stamping, although I did a little on the inside. I used the Big Shot for the leaf cutouts. I don't see much stamping in my future for the next few months. Two boys graduating, and LOTS of stuff going on. It will be fun, but crazy and busy!

Spring/Fall Card

The birds remind me of spring, but I made this card last fall, with fall colors. This stamp is in a cute Level 1 hostess set this year called Of the Earth.

You'll notice I have my card propped up on some Scentsy bars. My open house is coming up soon. I'll be selling all my bars and bricks that I have in stock for 50% off due to the new design that recently came out. Out with the old, in with the new! For more Scentsy Open House info, email me!

Merry February

On a very windy Halloween Day, our friend took a few pictures of our family. We didn't last long! We were all freezing and trying our best to keep our teeth from chattering. There were only a couple where my hair wasn't standing straight up in the air! I finally stood against this tree and it helped a little. It was quite an experience!

I stamped the snowflakes on the cards clear back at the beginning of November and then life got incredibly busy. I didn't end up getting back to them until the end of January, so they ended up being Groundhog Day cards. Oh well!

B's Valentines

We've been working on Brandon's Valentine's the last couple of days. This is how they turned out...

I got to help with his class party today after going out to lunch with the Band Moms. They are so much fun and such great company. It was an awesome day!

This was Brandon's last class party ever. Moving on to sixth grade means the end of parties. :( They had a great time.
