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: http://stamping411.blogspot.com/ and the Stampin' Royalty Challenge 59 at: http://stampinroyalty.blogspot.com/ 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

Get Well Soon

This is my entry for the Saturday Sketch Challenge 190 that can be found at: http://stamping411.blogspot.com/
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.
Thanks for looking :)

I am shocked that I actually got to compete a challenge the day it was issued. Usually they sit on my desk for days and then at the last minute I throw something together.

This card also works for the Just Add Ink challenge this week! You can find that at: http://just-add-ink.blogspot.com/ Thanks ladies for a great challenge!
I used an old SU stamp set A Little Bit of Happiness.
Paper: Pretty in Pink, Melon Mambo, White all SU Ink; Melon Mambo and Pretty in Pink
Small SU Heart punch and black gingham ribbon were also used. I know it is hard to see the picture but I used Crystal Effects on the heart with the dots and the tiny flower.
Thanks for looking! :)

I was really excited to do this weeks sketch challenge that the operators at http://stamping411.blogspot.com/ put together. I needed to add a few more wedding cards to my stash and I love the SU stamp set To Have and To Hold. This is my first time adding flowers and jewels to a card. I like the results! Thanks for stopping by to take a look!
