Going to see My Girls!

It's raining but I don't care.  I'm going to see my girls with my husband.  They are two hours away at college and we are taking them to lunch.  Then we are going to an "all you can eat spaghetti fund raiser.  Held a Sympathy Card workshop last night and made some beautiful cards.  I will share them with you later.  One of the girls had never stamped before and you wouldn't have known it when you saw her put these cards together!!!  Way to go Wendy.  And Linda, thanks for helping me get things together the other day.  You are the best!!  Well gotta go get ready to see the  girls.  The only thing that would make it perfect would be if our son was there with us.  Oh well some have to work on weekends!  Sorry Matt.

Bird On A Branch #3

This was my last card I made tonight and I wanted to use Tangerine Tango and Pacific Point. Do you think the flower is too much?

This was pretty simple but I used up some DSP scraps I had and it seemed to work

I love this set. Tried stamping the branch in different spots. I stamped the bird in More Mustard, and then sponged the card with Rose Red and So Saffron. I used Chocolate Chip and Rose Red Paper on Whisper White with Chocolate Chip ribbon for an accent.

Challenge this week

Challenge this week, originally uploaded by Pungo Stamper.

The challenge from my upline this week was to use the colors Tempting Turquoise, Basic Gray, Green Galore, and Whisper White. I used the Splatter stamp from the set Bird on A Branch and the Polka Dot Punches which work great with Stampin Up Punches. The Sizzix Top Note and Bird and Blooms sizzix set were also used and the ribbon and hardware finished it off. So what do you think. Too much or not?

Mr. Darcy

Isn't he adorable? This is Mr. Darcy named after Pride and Prejudice's character. He is a Shih Tzu and is about 9 weeks in this picture. He is spoiled rotten but is great company for me now that I am pretty much an empty nester.

This was a challenge from my upline Lisa to a group of us known as the glitterchicks. I used the new DSP "Pink Flamingo" and the daisies # 2 that I ran through the Big Shot. I texturized the center of the daises with the new textured plates. I hope you like it.

Daisies #1

I first saw this card done almost the same on Mary Fish's blog (and one of my favorites) "Stampin Pretty. Naturally I had to have everything to make this card asap including those awesome corduroy buttons. Check out the next card...

Then the wheels in my head started turning again while in bed last night and I started thinking about those textured plates. Hmmm. So I got out my "distressed" textured plate and ran some Pacific point paper through the Big Shot and then turned it sideways and ran it through again. Next I punched out circles with my 3/4" punch and TA DAAA! Faux corduroy buttons!!! What do you think? Now you can make them in any color. Let me know what you think.

I got my Bigz XL Die yesterday and love it! My girlfriend Linda came over and fell in love with it too. Said she had to have it! Well I got to thinking about different things I could do with it and remember seeing someone's blog showing how to use it on a card front. Well of course the texture plate did not cover the die so as I laid in bed last night I started thinking about the other blog (sorry I can't remember right off the bat whose it was) but I thought why can't the same idea be use for this awesome box so........
