Did ya miss me.......

I know it's been awhile since my last post but you know how it is, life seems to get in the way sometimes. I have been scrapping though. I'm working on some projects that I can't share right now, but I can share these pics that I took last week of my two babies.

Ain't they cute!

in the March 2009 issue of Cards!!! I submitted my card before the October 10th deadline but didn't hear anything for a few days so I thought, oh well, maybe I'll try again later. Lo and behold I got an e-mail this week requesting the card I submitted. How cool is that!

Magazine Inspiration Challenge

I made this card for WCMD but never got a chance to post it. So here it is. Some of you SU stampers may recognize it from the Fall and Winter 2008 catalog.

Deets: Cardstock: Kraft. Pattern Paper: Sassafras Lass and American Crafts. Letter Stickers: Doodlebug Design Inc. The ledger paper was purchased by the single sheet at my local office supply store. The circles are 1 1/4" and the arrow is a Cuttlebug die. Other: ribbon and felt flower. TFL.

Dig deep she says.....

A few weeks ago Kimmie over at UYS challenged us to dig deep in our stash and make a card/layout or altered project. Well here ya go Miss Kimmie. I've had this paper since 1999! Holy cow! I told ya I never throw anything away. lol.

Just a few cards from WCMD

I had a such a blast over at the playground this past weekend. There were so many great card challenges and had it not been for a family emergency I would have completed a lot more of them, but I'm not giving up. I copied and pasted all the challenges and I plan to work on a few more this week.

Most of the patterned paper you see is Pebbles, Inc with a little Colorbok, Making Memories and Provo Craft thrown in. The candles is a Sizzix die cut that I had purchased and never used before this past weekend- shame on me because I think they turned out kind of cute. And the cardstock is none other than Stampin' Up. TFL.

Yeah, I know another birthday card, but seriously can you ever have enough!
Cardstock is Stampin' Up. Pattern Paper is Making Memories and stamp is Studio G and ribbon is Offray. TFL

This last set of cards are pretty simple, but I like the way they turned out anyway. I think I'm gonna give them to my mil so she can send them to her grandchildren. And we all know what an 8 yr. old and a 4 yr. old will do with them after they open 'em. Yep, you guessed it - toss em. lol.

Cardstock is The Paper Co. Pattern Paper is Stampin' Up (about 9 or 10 yrs. old) and Making Memories. Stamps are also from Stampin' Up. TFL.
