For all of you who check on me and my website, I have moved to blogger….mostly because of the spam comments I have been getting. I hope you will join me in my new blogging adventure at http://www.prettypaperandpics.blogspot.com
Thanks, and have a great day!!!

I have gone against what I said and done another card today, this one was inspired by both Pam at Paper Askew and the CPS challenges. I am not sure I hit either on the head, but I did have fun trying to work with the colors and sketch together to make one card. You can’t really see it because I only used versamark, but the red part does say Happy Birthday on it to go along with the balloons. I had planned on using more color on the background and also using some black, but I am happy with how it turned out!

Here are the last of the cards I did get completed before we moved. After this, I am going to have to stick to scrapbook pages as I have not put many up for awhile. Of course, I like to put pages up that are interesting and different and not just each and every page I make…so that may take awhile.
This first card is one I made using a page completion kit from Creative Memories and Papertray’s Warmest Wishes stamp. As a consultant I end up with a ton of these kits and wanted to try using it as a card, of course these pictures are SUPER blurry…sorry!
The second card is made with Papertray stamps again, LOVE those stamps! It was a card we gave to one of our neighbors when we moved.
This card is very hard to read, but it does say Thank You in the middle of the orange layer. I used my mini shape maker from CM on the white layer, the colors are really great together….very spring like!
This is another card that I made with a couple of stickers I have had for awhile and a SU stamp.
I really love this last card, I used the scoring trick to make the lines on the background. Then I took a sanding block to make the lines show up more and then just added the paper and ribbon, very simple!
Thanks for looking and have a super day!

Sorry I have been MIA for awhile. We did move on the 28th of Feb and are loving the new place a lot, but do not have internet set up at this time. I hope to get it up in the next week or two and then I can post the rest of the cards I did for that challenge….a little late, but I wanted to share them. Then I am going to get my butt in gear and start working on catching up on scrapbook pages, I hate being so far behind. Really I am not that far behind, but I have not done anything for the current year yet and still need to finish up 2007 and then work on school albums. The school albums are a big huge thing now since the girls have started a new school and guess how bad of a mommy I have been so far……not one single picture of the girls going to the new school or getting on the bus or meeting their new teachers. Bad, bad, bad mommy…..this is going to be much harder to catch up on that I originally thought! So enough blah blah blah from me and I will be back soon with more cards and hopefully some pages.

I have been packing for the last few days, with my Mom’s help (thanks Mom!!!) She has been helping do the girls’ rooms as I would never get anything else done if I had to do them. So after she left I took some time to work on cards (I figure if I make some cards with the scraps in my scrap drawer then it is less I have to move🙂 Here are a few I finished today, sorry some of the pictures are so bad.
This first card is very simple, I used the Baroque Motifs stamp from SU and my white craft ink for the main part. I always love bright blue and yellow together🙂
This second card is the birthday card I made for my daughter’s friend. I used Papertrey’s flower and cupcake stamps from the endless labels set and the happy birthday is a sticker. I also used my CM mini punch flowers on the oval….I think it turned out very cute.
The third card is one I have made in advance for my best friends new baby girl that is due soon. I have had these bottle stickers for at least 8 years (yikes!) and thought they worked great for this card. Again, I used my pencil eraser with SU pretty in pink for the dots and a sticker on the pink band. You can’t see it very well, but I did stamp PTI’s flower along the band as well.
These next two cards are for my daughters teachers since this will be their last week at this school😦 This is going to be a very hard week for me and the girls, saying goodbye to the only school they have gone to, saying goodbye to all of the friends we have all made and their great teachers!
Have a super day and thanks for stopping by!

Wow! I am so psyched to see all of the views of my blog, but you are all sure VERY quiet!! I know it is hard some times to come up with something to say when you do look at a lot of blogs each day🙂
So onto the cards, the first card is pretty simple and still needs the sentiment but I felt it could wait until it is being used. It could say “Oh Boy”, “For You” or “Happy Birthday” what do you think?
(I sure do wish I could take better pictures!)
This second card is something I really love, one that just comes together after looking at it for a bit. I had these stickers from a christmas party exchange over a year ago and I just kept looking at them wanting to find a use for them. Then I just started playing with my punches and came up with the window and frame and it went from there. I love the color combo of the orange with the blue (wish I could remember the names of these papers) the dots are made using a pencil eraser and I feel it just finished it off perfectly.
Hope you have a super day and thanks for looking!!!
