Stampin' Up! sent all active demonstrators a free Stamp Set called Time Well Spent. It will be a Level 3 Hostess Set in the Spring/Summer 2008 Catalog. I love this set! I don't have very many stamp sets that are great for's not my strong side! :) So instead of watercoloring the stamped images I used my markers to color it in. To make the "Friends" in the sentiment stand out a little more I colored it in with a Real Red Marker. I didn't have a VersaMarker, or else I would have used that instead. Hope you like it.
Stamps: Time Well Spent
Paper: Whisper White, Real Red, So Saffron and Tempting Turquoise
Ink: Real Red, So Saffron and Tempting turquoise Markers, and Basic Black Classic Ink
Accessories: brads.

I stamped a card finally! :) I do have to thank my secret sister for the layout of the card and a piece of paper I found that I had written a color combo on a while ago...don't even remember where I got the color combo. But I love how this card turned out...too bad I'm tired and don't have enough energy to stamp another card tonight. Well I'm sure I can get the energy (can you ever run out of "stamping energy"?) but I don't think my brain is up to it. :) I don't even know why I'm typing this before I head to bed....oh I know! Because I'm SOOOOOO excited that I actually got a card done! I actually stamped! Yeah! you guys know I'm really tired I keep rambling on and on...okay time for me to go to bed. I hope you enjoy the card! Thanks for stopping by.

Sorry I haven't posted much! I haven't had any creativity lately! I just sit in my room and stare at my desk or my stamps! It's been like that a lot lately and then as soon as I figure out what I'm going to do of course something comes up. :) Isn't that how it always is! LOL! I got my house clean hopefully tomorrow I will be able to create something! Keep your fingers crossed! thanks for stopping by.

November 11, 2007 my scanner didn't scan this card very well! I really need to get a digital!

I made this for my BIL who is in the hospital...we are supposed to go see him today. As for masculine sets...I think this is my only one remotely close...which is good because I finally used this set after ordering it a couple months ago. Yes, I've "played" with it...stamping images, but never actually putting a card together. So I hope you like it. It looks better in real life though. Well at least I think so.

In the bottom right hand corner is where I heat embossed "So Sorry" in Clear EP...maybe I should have used a different color. Hmmm....oh well too late now.

Hope you enjoy it and have a wonderful day! Thanks for stopping by!

Simple, but to the point I guess

My mom came over and stamped with me today... I could get my creative juices I just stayed simple. The Chocolate Chip is stamped with the Sanded Background Stamp in Chocolate Chip. I just got that background stamp so I really wanted to use it. :) My mom really wanted to use the Polka Dot and Paisley Set so that's where that came from. I know it's not much, but I hope you like it. I hope I can get some more stamping done later today or probably tomorrow.

Stamps: Sanded, Big Bold Birthday and Polka Dots and Paisley

Paper: Chocolate Chip, Regal Rose and Very Vanilla

Ink: Whisper White Craft, Regal Rose and Chocolate Chip Classic

Okay...this is going to be fun! Never done this before, so here it goes:

1. If you could have 100.00 worth of scrapbook paper or assorted embellishments, which would you choose?
I would choose assorted emblellishments...I have TONS of paper! Usually if I go to a store to buy embellishments I usually end up buying paper instead.

2. If you had to choose between using only stamps or ribbons, which would you choose?
Stamps! You can do a lot more with stamps!

3. If you knew how to do both awesome cards and layouts but could only do one for a whole year…which would you do?
I'm going to have to say layouts...maybe that would help me catch up on my scrapbooking!

4. Would you rather own a scrap booking store or have your own scrapping room at home...
I'd rather have my scrapbooking room...that way when I want MY time I can have my time! :)

5. What is your CURRENT card making or scrapping style? I don't know what you would call it! Simple I guess. I really like the distressing type stuff though, but never really do it on my cards or anything.

Here are the rules…………..Please answer the questions on your blog and tag 5 more people to answer the same questions……….make sure you list on your blog who you are tagging….Thanks!!

I am 24 years old and have been married to my wonderful husband for 3 years. I'm a SAHM to two beautiful girls, ages 4 (in November) and 2 (in February). I have been scrapbooking for about 8 years off and on. I started stamping about a two years ago and love everything about it. I became a SU! demonstrator in April 2007 and love everything about it!
