Hi There!

Tonight I challenged myself to use the SU Good Neighbors Stamp set. It was a sale-a-bration set from 2010 and sad to say that I have not used it until tonight. Now I wonder why! I think I will make a bunch of these to keep on hand to send notes to friends.
Stamp sets: Good Neighbors and Fundamental Phrases
Ink and Paper: Soft Suede, Baja Breeze, Cherry Cobbler, Vanilla and Old Olive
Thank goodness I had a stamp-a-ma-jig to keep everything straight. That is a must have for any stamper.Thanks for stopping by to look.

Easter Blessings

I used the Saturday Sketch challenge 191 from: and the Stampin' Royalty Challenge 59 at: and came up with these two variations of an Easter card. I had fun playing around with my markers while coloring on the Stampin' Royalty card.
Here is what I used:
Never Ending Joy stamp set...SU
Paper and markers are all SU: Pear Pizzazz, Rich Razzleberry, Tempting Turqoise, White, Black and Garden Green (for shading on the stems).
I used my stamp a jig to make sure everything lined up. I used my color coach to help me use colors I normally don't play with. I also added a button from the Fresh Favorites 1 with linnen thread and a glue dot.
Thanks for looking :)

Here is the entry for SSC 191

Here is my entry for SR 59

I used mostly SU products on this card.
Paper is soft suede, regal rose, so saffron and vanilla. I used Eastern Blooms, Flight of the Butterfly and Sincere Salutations for stamp sets. I chose to use a butterfly instead of a bow due to my inability to tie a pretty bow on this card.
