Good Morning All!

It's Friday! Well it's your Friday! My Friday is Saturday! It has been a really long week. Just plain hot! Sigh....Takes all your Mojo away! I just want to sleep! I'm not about to complain though! LOL! Everything is lush and green! We have had some awesome thunderstorms!

My card today is a pretty simple one. I used a set from Verve called Beautiful You. I simply stamped the sentiment on whisper white with melon mombo. I added a little DP from Thoroughly Modern and cut out the flower on bermuda bay. Wish they would release the bermuda bay ink pad! Add a few brads just for good measure and there you have it! It almost classifies as a CAS card!
Well off to work!

Have a great day!

Give Thanks

Good Morning All!!

Another beautiful sunny day here in North Idaho. We really enjoy summer here, it's so short we soak it in as long as we can! I have to say, I'm enjoying this blogging thing! Never thought I would!! Yes I've had a few frustrations but for the most part it has been really fun!

I felt the need to use this DP from Autumn Traditions. I love all the leaves on it! It screams fall card! My card base is crushed curry, layered with whisper white and soft suede. My stamped images come from Fall Wimsy and Scene in a Garden. I thought they went together very nicely! I punched the leaves with a Martha Stuart punch! All in all I really like the card! What do you think?

May the Lord bless your flipflops off today!

I am truly honored to have so many friends! These friends originate from Stamp TV! It is such a wonderful social network! Selma has chosen to give the Circle of Friends Award to me! How cool is that! You should check out her blog , she is one talented lady! You can look on my post on the 24th to see who I passed this wonderful award onto!
Thanks again Selma!


Good Morning!

How is everyone today? All here is good. The weather is really warm and it is defiantly the dog days of summer! I can't believe we are in the last week of July! Time really flies!!

My card today is for the color challenge on Stamp TV . The challenge was actually yesterday! We are challenged to use green and pink together on a card. I decided to go bright! I used Pink Passion and Green Galore.
The card itself is pretty simple! Pink Passion card base, layered Green Galore & Whisper White. Stamped with Su's Polka Dots & Paisley. This set is from 2007 but I still like it! I made the card with my 12yr.old granddaughter in mind. She recently moved about 6hrs away. I really miss her, she used to come once a week and build cards with me! Now we send them back and forth! I'd rather have her here!! Well I'm off to work !
Have a blessed day!

Herb Expressions

Good Morning!

I am a little late posting today! I usually do my post the evening before and set it to post the next morning. Well my DH was home last night and I totally spaced it! It wasn't until just a few minutes ago I realized I didn't post!! LOL!

Well onto my card..... This card was made with the new set Herb Expressions. I inked my main image with markers, the rest is pretty straight forward! The card itself was pretty simple! It went together in just a few minutes!

I'm off to spend the day in my studio! I need more creations for the next week. I haven't had any time at all this past week to stamp. I'm starting to have withdrawals!
Have a great day!

Lovely Lines

Good Morning!

Today is my Friday!! As a rule I only work 1/2 a day on Saturday. Hopefully that will be the case today! It has been so warm it zaps the energy right out of me! LOL!

This is my submission for the STVSC 22 . The card is 71/2 x 4. I used Soft Suede as my card base. I then layered with Whisper White, Ruby Red and DP from Autumn Traditions. Instead of stamping an image I used Lovely Lines rub-ons. I cut my circle with nestabilities. I had no idea where this card was going when I started it , but I like how it turned out!

Thanks for looking and have a great day!

Good Morning!

I hope everyone's day is going to be a bright and cheery one! Looks like we will have another hot one! I'm not complaining mind you, our summers are way to short..
My card today is for the SCS sketch challenge. I'm not sure I like it so much.... Ever have one of those cards? Seems everything I do has Rich Razzelberry on it lately! LOL! This card starts with an Old Olive card base, layered with Whisper White, Rich Razzelberry ,the DP is from Cottage Walls. The images are stamped from a hostess level 3 set called Flower Lines. I think it's the Old Olive I don't like! Should have been Always Artichoke !! :(

Have a great day!

Medallion Christmas Card

Good Morning !

We are going to have temperatures in the triple digits today. It would be a great day to stay in and stamp, if I didn't have to work. But if I didn't work I couldn't stamp ! I have been having the itch to make some Christmas cards. So here is my first! I love this new Medallion stamp! It has endless possibilities! I embossed this one with silver EB , added a border and small sentiment. Waalaw!! :) I think it would pass as a cas card, what do you think?

Have a great day!

Good Morning!

Is everyone awake out there in
cyberspace? My sis has been here
visiting for a few days. She is leaving
after huckleberry pancakes :( We have
had a great time! Thanks for all your
help Carol ! I would still be trying to do
my first post, if she wasn't here to help!
LOL ! Enough of that, let's get to my card.
I made this card using a sketch challenge
from SCS. I never did upload to the challenge.
I will get that done today! I used Almost Amethyst
as my card base. I then layered with Whisper
White and basic black. My DP is retired
Bella Bleu. Stamped sentiment is from
Stamping Up's Echoes of Kindness. I
love this set.
Well I'm off to make pancakes!

Have a great day!

I'm doing something I thought I would never do, blog. Go figure! The name of my blog is my daily workout! Stampersize..... It uses my brains, arms, legs and just about every other muscle in my body! Sometimes I work up a sweat! It's a great cardio workout! Ok so my first post is short and sweet, I'm sure I will get way more wordy in the future! Hope to have this whole blog thing put together in the next few days! See you soon.
