I was tagged

I was tagged. The challenge was to go into your picture files and choose the 6th folder and the 6th picture. This picture is of one of the many frog or toad friends we made this summer. My boys love animals, so we have to scoop them and study them for awhile. I am supposed to tag others to take on this challenge, but I am soooo tired right now. I will tag others soon, but feel free to consider yourself tagged and play along!

Limelight Papercrafts Sketch Card

This card is for Mandy's sketch at Limelight Papercrafts. The tricky part was the requirement to use textured items. I immediately thought of some Paper Bouquet paper I bought a year ago at Target. I came flocked already. It is like velvet flock. It is so soft. That got me thinking about other textures. I pulled out soft, satiny ribbon and DCWV glitter cardstock. The glitter CS is really rough, so I think it should count as a texture. I used my Giga scallop circle punch and Mega circle for the focal point. The heart stamp is by Studio G and so is the sentiment. The flower on the textured white piece is from an SU! set. After adding some crystals and Diamond stickles, I adhered my creation to the black base. I'm pretty happy with it. I hope you enjoy it as well.

New stamps!

I love dollar stamps that you can find in the checkout line at craft stores. My kids gave me these two stamps for Christmas. I just love them! They are both by Inkadinkado and stamp beautifully. I used a bunch of stickles and my CB folders, swiss dots and divine swirls. I got a few new ones I can't wait to use! I was on a perfect plum kick, but I think that color is very elegant. It is snowing like crazy here today! Stay warm and cozy wherever you are!

Don't forget to check out Simon Says Stamp for an amazing variety of stamps and fun stuff and great BLOG CANDY too!

Here's what I have been up to....

I have been stamping, but our camera is possessed. These are two quick thank yous. The first is a set from Michael's for my son, Tommy. He works so hard at basketball! The second is a thank you to Heather for the fabulous gift card she sent me. It looks MUCH better in person. There is fun flock on the snowman and I used my nesties to emboss a frame. I have more to show you, but I am having trouble with my camera.
