My Week in Review

Wow! I can't believe I haven't updated my blog in a week! So now I'm doing a week in review. LOL!

Saturday was a GREAT day! I went to a stamping & scrapbooking convention in Novi with dawnmercedes. She is a wonderful story teller and has pictures on her blog.

Sunday was spent putting EZ mount on stamps, organizing them in binders and cleaning my stamp room. I can see the light at the end of the tunnel! Woo Hoo!

Monday... I can't remember! LOL! I know I had fillings... ouch!

Tuesday... My new SU catty order arrived! But before it did, I made this first card for the color challenge this week on Splitcoast.

Color Challenge: close to cocoa, blush blossom, ruby red

SU Stamps: Stitched Exotics, Holiday Blitz, Snow Flurries, Simply Said

Gina K. Designs: sentiment

Accessories: taupe ribbon, markers, dimensionals, Marvy flower punch

On Wednesday, I used one of my new sets for the sketch challenge on Splitcoast. I just LOVE this bear! The inside will say something like, "Maybe this will sweeten you up :)"

The marshmallow is puffed up with liquid applique and sponged with creamy caramel. This card measures 4.25 square. I use 4.5 Amuse square envelopes.

Stamps: Under the Stars
Paper: kraft & DSP, chocolate chip, white
Ink: brown stazon, creamy caramel
Accessories: Copic & SU markers, punches, CM custom cutting system, ribbon, dimensionals

On Thursday, I used one of my new stamps from the convention I went to with Dawn to make my Ways to Use It challenge card. The "O Holy Night" sheet music stamp is made by Stamp Camp.

Colors: confetti cream, riding hood red, always artichoke, creamy caramel, black
Stamps: O Holy Night - Stamp Camp, Peaceful Wishes - SU
Accessories: taffeta ribbon
Techniques: distressing

And today I made a card for the limited supply challenge on Splitcoast.

Limited Supplies Challenge: Oldies but Goodies

Here are my oldies/rarely ever used items:
Favorite Teddy
Brocade Blue
Round Up DP (from SS kit)
Marvy scallop oval punch (but now that I have SU's wide oval punch, I think I'll be using the scallop punch more often :)
