Splendiferous!!

Splendiferous ~ don't you just love that word? It makes me smile when I hear it. How can you not make a card with that stamp and not be happy? It's one of those sentiments you can use with nearly any image and each card leaves you smiling. Here I paired it with the flower pot stack and used it as a birthday card for a co-worker. She loves to tinker with flowers and gardens, so I thought it fit her perfectly. Not only did she love the card, but she had a smile a mile wide when she read the sentiment out loud. See, it worked! I hope you had a splendiferous day and that my card makes you smile. Thanks for stopping by to have a look!




Supplies used:
Stamps: A Muse
Cardstock: SU, white, green galore, ballet blue, orange
Ink: Memories Black
Misc: Prismacolor markers, dimensionals, scalloped scissors
Info: I stamped the image on white cardstock, colored with prismacolor markers, stamped a second image, cut out and mounted on the card with dimensionals. Also stamped the envelope, coloring the image the same as the card. Card measures 3.5 x 5. Thanks for looking!

Dandy!

Happy Monday!! We received some very much needed rain today ~ it has been extremely HOT & HUMID here the past 10 days. I cannot stand it, nor do I function well in it. My perfect summer day would be 72, sunny and a light breeze. If only we could order up the weather to our liking, wouldn't that be grand! Now that the rain has passed, the clouds have drifted off and the sunshine is peeking thru the trees. Hopefully the humidity has drifted off as well. I am grateful for central air conditioning, if I didn't have air conditioning in the house, I would be sleeping in the car! I have to be able to sleep, or I get tired, grouchy, and will roar like a lion when miserable in the heat.

With that being said..... Here is a card with the cutest little lion, wishing you a Dandy-Lion of a day! Hope you are keeping cool! Enjoy.



Supplies used:
Stamps: A Muse
Ink: Memories Ink - black, Prismacolor markers - yellow orange, burnt ochre.
Cardstock: SU white, mustard, rust.
Misc: MM brads, dimensionals.
Info: Lion was stamped on white cardstock with Memories Black ink and colored in with prismacolor markers. I then stamped the lion a second time, coloring just his head and cutting it out, mounting onto the first image with dimensionals. Stamped the sentiment with Memories black ink and added the brads by MM, that happen to match the colors of the lion perfectly. Stamped the lion on the lower left hand corner on the front of the envelope as well. Card measures 3.5 x 5. Thanks for looking!

Good Grief!!!!!

I have been an absolute HORRIBLE blogger!! When I first decided to enter the blogging world, I thought I would have all this time and be posting on a regular basis. Yada, Yada, Yada. Fast forward to today and well, it hasn't quite turned out the way I originally planned. I realized that I have to make some changes in my time and schedule in order to be able to dedicate more time to it and get back to what I love doing ~ stamping! Which makes me wonder...... is anyone really stopping by to have a look anyway? If you are, just let me say THANK YOU!! Please stop by again, and if you feel so inclined, leave a comment, suggestion or just say hi! With that being said......here is a card I'd like to share. Yes, a card!! It seems as of late I've been buying, hoarding, not putting things away, buying more, hoarding more and using less. So I'm shaking things up a bit and intend to buy less, hoard less, and create MORE!! I have an enormous collection of all things and could easily open my own stamp store.....amazing how much stuff I "think" I need ~ ha! I will be putting a large number of all things stamp related up for sale and trade very soon. I just have far too much "stuff". Stay tuned.....
