This is a basket I made using the big shot baskets & Blooms. I used bareley banana cs and textured it with the diamond shape texture plate. I then added some paper from to the Nines and added some brown ribbon. I stamped a fish stamp from an old SU stamp set. Finally I added some ribbon to the top. This was my first attempt at making this basket. What do you think? I hope you all are having a good weekend.

Well here it is. This card is doing double duty Mojo Monday 88 http://www.mojomonday.blogspot.com/ and the Weekly Color Throwdown http://www.colorthrowdown.blogspot.com/ . The colors where Lavender lace, Old Olive, and Elegant Eggplant. I used the Great Friends stamp set. I used the leaf stamp with versa mark on the bottom Elegant eggplant piece and also stamp once with the leaf stamp on the top and heat embossed using the clear embossing powder. I stamp the butterfly and on white card stock and cut it out. I added some black brads, black gingham ribbon and some stiches with the white gel pen. I am really happy with this card. I love this sketch and will probably use it again. I'm really proud of myself for getting this done, with the way our evening was going it's a miracle I got anything done. Priorities--(stamping and then cleaning). Well I guess I'd better get to that cleaning. Thanks for stopping by. Please feel free to leave comments:)
Here is a picture of the inside of the card. I used the top note die and cut it in elegant eggplant and white CS. I'm not sure if I want to add a butterfly to the inside or not. What do you think?

Wow, I can't believe I went so long without posting. Well I'm back and I finished mojo monday on monday can you believe it. Well I have alot going on in this one. I used stamps from the following stamp sets. Heartfelt Thanks, Think Happy thoughts, Little flowers, and pretty amazing. The flower I used water color crayons and outlined it with Stampin' Write markers and added a green jeweled brad. The butterfly I colored with watercolor pencils and added crystal effects. The circle is stamped in so saffron and the brad in the middle is from create a brad.
Wow, what a beautiful day we had today. (80's) I'm soooo glad we didn't have to wear our winter coats to baseball today. It's our first game that we didn't have to bundle up for. Well, have a good week and stamp, stamp, stamp. Thanks for stoppin by.

I have two things to share with you. First, this is a card I made for a friend of mine for her birthday. I used the crazy for cupcakes stamp set and the paper I think is from a set that is no longer available. (darn) What do you think.
Second, here are some pictures from the big birthday party. It was only a 2 hour party, which was probably a good thing since we had two injuries in that time. One which had to go to the hospital because we thought her ankle was broken, but it's just sprained. I guess it's a good thing it wasn't a slumber party, who knows what would have happened. lol. Well have a good night, and thanks for looking.

Good Evening stampers, This is an invitation for Ashley's birthday I have been working on tonight. She is just crazy about horses so I thought this would be cute for her party. I made it into a pocket card where the inside pulls out of the top. I used the sweet slumber specialty DS paper and the Baja Breeze CS. Thanks for looking and have an excellent week. Steph:)

I hope this finds everyone happy and healthy. It's the weekend and I hope everyone is getting in some stamping time.
Mom has been on my mind lately. This is a scrapbook page I made recently of my mom. She fought a long battle with cancer, until she passed away in 2006. Mother's day is coming up and I miss her so bad. She truly was my best friend and I miss her dearly. If there ever was an angel on earth I swear it was her. She gives me so much strength everyday. I just wanted show someone these awesome pictures of my mom. I could go on and on forever about my mom so I'll just end with I love you mom, you are my hero. Thanks for looking and I hope everyone is having a good weekend. Steph:)
