New Gorjuss Stamps!!

Hi guys,
Today has been a very looooong day..I am finally home and relaxing now though.=) The other day I discovered that there are several new Gorjuss stamps out now! How this info got past me is just baffling lol I am usually on top of things like this..especially if it's Gorjuss!! Anywho, I just HAD to order a few of them and wanted to let you guys know so you can get them too! You can get them from aswell as are both in the US which I know has been an issue for some people in the past..I used to order all my gorjuss stamps from the UK but not anymore.=) Anywho..go check them out they are sooooo adorable and perfect for Christmas cards! I have decided to make more cards this year than normal. After getting to know so many new people through youtube, I thought it would be fun to send them cards this year too. So I am trying to get a head start.=) Thanks for stoppin by and have a great evening! Hugs

Birthday Card

Hello everyone,I hope you are all enjoying your weekend! I just have a quick card share for you today. I made this card for my bff, we've been friends since kindergarten and although we haven't seen eachother in 10 years we still keep in touch and I've always sent her a b-day card. For this card I used my "Special Autumn" TGF stamp and the new MME lost and found two "Sunshine" paper pad (which I'm in love with) I don't usually use such muted colors for birthday cards but this paper is just so adorable I HAD to use it=) I used the labels 2 and 4 spellbinders dies aswell as the mini rolled rose dienamics die from MFT and my viva decor pearl pen in cream to add the pearl accents. And of course I had to use my new twine from the twinery in brown and sew around the edges. Well thanks for stoppin by and have a great day!

Paper Smooches Sparks Challenge


Today I have a card to share with you that I created for the Paper Smooches Sparks Challenge..Here is the inspiration photo and the card I made..I was very inspired by this color combo and even more by the texture combo. I used kraft cardstock for the base and splattered blue paint to add interest. I used the woodgrain screenprint from hambly, die-cut it and popped it up to give dimention and to create a bit of a shadow effect. The stamp I used is from the PS friendly flowers set and I colored it with my prisma colored pencils. I added a bit of bling on the top and bottom of the die cut shape and viola! I hope you enjoyed seeing my card and go check out

Anywho..go check out my LO and all the other great ones too! Thanks for stoppin by..have a great evening!
