Your Next Stamp Challenge #39~Stitching Real or Faux!

3:00 AM 21 Comments

Hello!  It's time for a new Your Next Stamp Challenge, and this time we want to see stitching on your beautiful creations (real or faux).  As most of you know I add stitching to almost everything, so this challenge is right up my alley:)

The rest of the DT have made so many cute cards by paper piecing Rainy Day Fhiona, so I wanted to give it a try:)  I used some fun dp from the My Mind's Eye Hattie paper pad and the layout from this week's The Sweet Stop Sketch Challenge #101

We've decided to change the way we do prizes.  From now Karen will be giving away a stamp set to a random winner!  The prize for this challenge is Bad Hair Day Fhiona:



Isn't she so cute?!

My kiddos are on spring break this week, so we are heading to the beach tomorrow for a couple days.  Hopefully it won't rain the whole time!  Also, my hubby and I are celebrating our 11th wedding anniversary this weekend and plan to go out for a special anniversary dinner on Saturday.  My taste buds are already watering as I anticipate my filet.  I LOVE a good steak!  Have a wonderful day!

PTI Make A Wish

5:16 PM 7 Comments

I'm a little embarrassed to say that my collection of un-inked PTI sets is growing, so I decided to sit down and make a quick and easy CAS card using this fun set Make A Wish!  I just adore this cake, and I think I like it so much because of the candles.  I also love polka dots:)  I used some My Mind's Eye Gertie dp and kind of followed the Viva la Verve March 2011 Week 5 sketch.  I also made little tag:


I think these will be perfect for one of my very good friends whose birthday is coming up next month.  She has a very clean style, and her house is always so immaculate.  I know, I should hate her LOL!  Thank you so much for stopping by!  I'll be back tomorrow with a new Your Next Stamp Challenge!

Lovin' From the Oven!

5:14 PM 17 Comments

Hello!  I've been dying to make a card using these ADORABLE Your Next Stamp images Lovin' From the Oven and Ellie Loves to Bake.  Don't they work perfectly together!?!  Sooooo super CUTE!  I played along with this week's Sweet Stop Sketch Challenge #100 and used some dp by October Afternoon Modern Homemaker.  The Yellow Gingham Ribbon and Cherry Baker's Twine both come from Really Reasonable Ribbon.



I didn't really have time to make a box or a bag for my cookies, so I pulled out one of these fabulous Blue Lunch Bags from the Etsy Shop It's In the Bag!  Michelle (the owner) has lots of bags to choose from~Paper, Glassine, Windowed, Pillow Boxes, etc.  I just used some of my scraps of dp and ribbon which made it so easy to decorate!  The sentiment comes from the Your Next Stamp set Elegant Greetings.


That's all for me today:)  I am getting some really good blog candy together!  I can't believe I'm getting close to 500 followers, PLUS, I found out some SUPER EXCITING news that I will be able to share in a couple of months.  For that reason, I thought it was time to celebrate with a giveaway so keep an eye out:)  Thank you so much for stopping by and have a wonderful rest of your day!

Hello!  This is the card that I have on the Really Reasonable Ribbon Blog today.  I finally had a chance to ink up this ADORABLE image from Lili of the Valley called Little Ballerina~LOVE!  I decided to play along with the current LOTV Challenge which is a fab sketch by Bev.  I used some October Afternoon Fly A Kite dp along with some GORGEOUS Abigail White Crochet Lace from Really Reasonable Ribbon.  This lace is so soft and ties the prettiest bows!  The sentiment comes from the PTI set Butterfly Dreams.

Hello and happy Saturday!  This is the project I have on the Really Reasonable Ribbon Blog today.  I haven't ordered any Whipper Snapper Designs images in a while, and couldn't resist some of their new spring images:)  This one is called Bunny Wannabe~so stinkin' CUTE!  I stamped the image twice and cut out the chick for some dimension.  I used probably my very favorite template from Perfect Presentation called Bag It Up.  It's just the perfect size to hold little treats and I'm dying to fill this one up with some jelly beans:)  The ribbon is some GORGEOUS Yellow Corsage Ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon.  This ribbon ties the most beautiful bows and is sooooo inexpensive!!!  Check out all of the pretty colors HERE
