Where have I been?

Well let me tell you where I have been. My poor 3 year old got very sick with a flu. Her temperature was hovering around 104 for days she had all the symptoms of a flu and on top of it we took her to the doctors and found out that she had croup (don't know if that's how you spell it). She was sick for 2 weeks and is still coughing pretty bad and then this week I caught her flu and I was in bed for days. Good thing for moms. My mom took care of the girls all week. So I think I'm finally feeling better so look for a post soon.

Monday is the last day to sign up the emergency birthday card kit class, click on the link to get all the info, let me know if your interested in signing up.

Happy Heart's Day!

Happy V-day! I thought that I would share the card that I made for my husband for v-day. I knew that I had to keep it clean simple lines and he's really not a red and pink kind of guy so this is my untraditional v-day card. I used blue bayou and soft sky on river rock cardstock. I then used one of our chipboard hearts and covered it with our new chunky glitter. In the bottom right corner I used our new rub-on's. I used a rub on that says You make me happy. Which my husband does make me happy, he is an incredible supporting husband. I then also added the heart rub on next to it. That's the great thing about rub ons, you can add and take away from them. If you only like part of a rub on then just use that part, if you want to use 2 rubs on together to get the look that I did, you can do that too!

Don't forget that you can get these rub-on's for free with a purchase of $50.00 during sale-a-bration which runs until March 17th. I have had a bunch of customers ask me lately, do I like the rub on's and do I use them. Well here is my answer, I LOVE RUB ON'S. I don't use many products that aren't SU but before Su carried rub on's I would purchase them else where because I just love rub on's. I don't know if it's just because it's really fun to watch it rub on to your paper or the versatility of them, but I can tell you that I am very excited that SU started carrying them. I love the fact that they coordinate perfectly with our stamp sets and designer papers. I love the fact that they are 12" in length that way I can use them on a 12x12 scrapbook page, and I have to tell you that these rub on's are a really great quality rub on. Can you tell that I'm excited about them.

Well I hope that you all have a great v-day and enjoy time with someone special to you.

Have a great day and happy stampin!

Baby shower card

My best friend is pregnant and she is home from Italy for a week and a half so her sister (who is 8 months pregnant) through her a baby shower and this is the first boy in our group of friends, we have 7 girls and no boys so it was so fun to be able to go shopping for boy clothes for once. So I wanted to make her a special card and she's the type of person who likes modern clean lines so I knew that I wanted to incoorperate that into my card. So I pulled out my bashful blue and night of navy card stock and went from there. I was super excited to use one of the new stamps from our sale-a-bration set So Many Scallops which works perfectly with our circle scallop punch. So what I did was stamp the stamp 4 times. I stamped it in bashful blue ink, barely banana ink and night of navy ink on white cardstock and then stamped it again with night of navy ink on bashful blue cardstock. I punched out the bashful blue cardstock with our circle scallop punch and then I punched out the bashful blue ink on white card stock with our 13/8 circle punch. With my paper snips I cut out the barely banana moon and cut out the sweet one saying from the night of navy stamped image. I used stampin dimensionals to raise up the moon and the saying sweet one. And then on the moon I used, wait for it.....................
dazzling diamonds glitter with my two way glue pen. Having parts of the image raised up on the dimensionals makes it look like one of the expensive embellishments that you would buy at the store but I made it my self.

Here is a close up picture of the scallop circle so that you can see the moon and saying popped up. This card was a lot of fun to make. This card measures 3X6 when folded. It's a 6X6 piece of cardstock which is perfect to make out of a 12X12 piece of cardstock because you can get 4 out of one piece of card stock. The envelope was made to match the card. I used the 5in1 template from SU and made it in Bashful blue cardstock and then added a belly band to it in whisper white and night of navy and then added the same hand stamped embellishment on the front along with blue gingham ribbon which screams baby to me.

Here is a picture of the basket that I gave her with the card sitting in the front of it. Doesn't it go well with the basket. I also added ribbon to the handles of the basket in all different shades of blue and white just to give it that extra special touch. I really did have fun making this basket.
Well that's it for today.
Have a great day and happy stampin!

ps. my spell check isn't working so I apologize for any misspelled words.
