Yeah!!! I got my new stamps, Lily & Otis, by Rachelle Anne Miller. Thank you to Korin over @ Sweet-n-Sassy stamps. So, I got two cards done... sorry the pics don't do 'em justice. I really hate explaining how I made the cards. I think the picture is very self-explanatory... or maybe I'm just feeling lazy? Probably a little of column A & a little of column B lol. Anyways, I made the one for my Mother in law. I colored Lily in w/my chalks which I have to say was a bit time consuming w/Q-tips & all. The sentiment is from SU & it's the Curvy Lines set "You're a wonderful reason to celebrate". I used my new Dew Drops once again courtesy of Sweet-n-Sassy stamps. I'm so lovin' those too! The second card I made for my one friend who's down in the dumps.. I love her & hope it'll cheer her up. "Hey there" is from my other new set of stamps that I just broke open. You prob saw me post about it awhile back, Hey Cupcake from Eclectic Paperie. I also got the flesh toned Copic w/that order as well. I'm getting the hang of it but it's kind of a pain w/the bleeding and all. I used a bookplate on this card. I can tell I'll be grabbing those again & again. They add a nice touch. So, I was annoyed w/chalking so I colored Lily in w/coloring pencils. Hmm... what am I forgetting? My order from the Lily & Otis collection included 9 or was it 10?? stamps so you'll be seeing a lot more ;)
P.S. Yes I know it's friday nite & even though I have no children & am 30 years old--- I'm home alone making cards.... & I couldn't be happier!

Well, I too, have been neglecting my post lol. I just wanted to update all my loyal fans on what's been going on. So, I'm still working on the baby album I previously mentioned & by "working on" I mean I'm @ a standstill. I just can't get the motivation to enter my pit of a scrap room. Too much stuff too little space.. but did I mention I just got this new cute ribbon organizer? Yeah! So, I'm gonna post a pic of a card I made last month. I wanted to make sure the recipient got it before seeing it on here. The Bella stamp & sentiment are both Stamping Bella & were goodies from Katie. I made my own "word window" using a corner punch so I will not be getting that SU punch but I'm waiting on the "spiral" punch from SU which I can't wait to get my hands on. Speaking of waiting, I'm still waiting on my precious Lily & Otis stamps that I preordered. Hopefully today :). That reminds me that I didn't explain the new look. The image @ the top of the page is by my new fave artist Rachelle Anne Miller & she is allowing bloggers to use her illustrations on their blogs. All she asks is you drop her a line & give her the credit. You can find her awesome illustrations @ RachelleAnneMiller.com. I've also discovered a new blogger, Kathy, who also is in love with Lily & Otis & all of Rachelle's stamps as well. You can check out her blog, Distressed Stamper, by clicking on the link in the upper left corner of my blog.
