It is Wednesday again. Don't know where the time goes. The Divas have a sketch challenge this week and here is what I came up with!

My coloring is a bit off in this picture. Sorry, took the picture late at night and the lighting is horrible. I did add some Stickles to make the main image a little sparkly. Take a moment to see what the other Divas have come up with for your inspiration. Play along with us while you are at it!

Good Morning! Happy Wednesday! I am sooooo slow moving this morning, but have made it here nonetheless! I think I am so stressed from school that it has drained all of my mojo. Our color challenge this week for the Divas is Bravo Burgundy, Pretty in Pink and Soft Suede.....and I can't tell you how long I sat looking at these colors without even the slightest idea to work with. It was sad really. Even my daughter said, "Mom, what are you doing to that poor card?!?" Oh well. After I get some things done today I am going to go on a major mojo search.Supplies~
Stamps: Baroque Motifs, Holiday Best
Ink: Soft Suede pad and marker, Bravo Burgundy marker, Pretty in Pink marker
Cardstock: Soft Suede, Bravo Burgundy, Vanilla, Pretty in Pink

Maybe this afternoon will be more productive. Keep your fingers crossed for me! In the meantime, swing by the Diva blog and see what the other Divas have cooked up for your inspiration. Play along with us!

Good Friday morning to you all! Five posts in a row! I did pretty good this week! Maybe I will get lucky two weeks in a row. Keep your fingers crossed. Today's card is a case and I am sorry to say that I didn't write down the name of the stamper who made it originally. So, if this is your card, please let me know so that I can give you the proper credit. I did pretty much completely case this, though, with the exception of maybe adding a layer or two. It is a beautiful card and the pictures just don't do it justice!
The only thing stamped is the greeting.
Stamps: Well Scripted
Ink: Always Artichoke

Just a quick post today....I decided to pick a stamp set to use that hasn't seen any ink in a while. Priceless is just one of soooo many stamp sets that I have been neglecting lately. Bad stamper! The purple and green color families just seem to call to me...

Accessories: Rich Razzleberry polka dotted grosgrain ribbon, dimensionals

Who Doesn't Love Hugs and Kisses?

I know I do. I am sure you do too! This card was inspired by Amanda Coughlin. It was so sweet looking, though, I had to CASE it. I love this Valentine jumbo wheel.

And don't forget, Stampin' Up! is donating $2 of the proceeds from every I {Heart} Hearts stamp set sold to the Haiti Disaster Relief Fund. Stampin' Up! is an amazing company and I just love being a demonstrator! Contact me if you would like some more information about joining me as a demonstrator. I promise you will have loads of fun!

Send in the butterflies...

I LOVE butterflies! The theme over at Late Night Stampers Group this week is a butterfly theme. Why don't you join us and play along? You don't have to be a demo to join! Just a stamper who loves Stampin' Up!

My card today is square, 5-1/2", in order to accommodate the scallop oval frame. I actually had to cut yesterday's oval frame to fit! (Yikes!) The bottom of the card was scored using my paper cutter and stylus.

Stamps: Fifth Avenue Floral, Great Friend (sentiment)
Ink: Jet Black StazOn, Elegant Eggplant
Cardstock: Whisper White, Crushed Curry, Elegant Eggplant
Accessories: Beautiful Wings Embosslit, Big Shot, Watercolor Crayons, Blender pen

Thanks for stopping by. Have a wonderful Monday!
