Hi all!!! This is going to be a really quick post since my sister and I are headed for a day of shopping, whoohoo!! I love hanging out with my mom and the three of us always have fun, but since mom is working today, it will be just us girls :-) I wanted to share this card with you since it is the one that I made for my kids....they are all slightly different but basically the same style. I got to use my new heart-shaped treat cups and I made it so you can pull the tab (where it says love) and empty the cup without ripping up the card. Very simple card but I think the kids will love the little treats that come with them, *wink*. I will leave you the recipe and then I am outta here!!! Thanks for stopping by - I love reading your comments!!

Inks - Bermuda Bay, Melon Mambo classic inks

Happy Hump Day all!! Well, I am still at my mom's and sister's and having fun although it has rained the whole time I have been here! It is supposed to be in the 70s this weekend though and I am looking forward to that since my sister and I are going to the San Diego zoo for the day - can't wait, I love the zoo! So, I made this card before I left and uploaded it to blogger so I could share it today. It is a square card, one of my favorite kind of card to make and it has been awhile!! I also played around with my new Scalloped Trim border punch (FREE in the Sale-A-Bration catty with a $50 order which can be placed with me here) and came up with these cool nested squares....here I was all proud of myself and then I see that several gals have already figured this trick out, LOL!!! But, I still love how they came out! And, the images and the sentiment are from another new set called With All My Heart, which can be found in the Occasions Mini. I love this set, the flowers are so pretty! I added some dazzling diamonds to my image with liquid glue (click on image to see close-up) as well as a pretty Filigree brad and love how it sparkles! And, I added some little rhinestones to the centers of the flowers - you can find these in the Eggcellent Eggs kit also in the Occasions Mini. So, I will leave you with the recipe and then it is off to do some fun shopping which I always enjoy*wink* Have a fabulous day and thanks for stopping by, it always makes me smile:-)

Stampin' Connection Sketch Challenge

Happy Monday all!! It's time for the SC sketch challenge again so if you are a demonstrator, get on over there and check it out, Diane did a fabulous sketch and a gorgeous sample!!! Sorry, this site is only for demos BUT I am happy to post the sketch here if you would like to play along for fun!!! My card is different for me because I did not do a lot of layers and actually left the card base showing through. However, I used the Background stamp Belle Toile, stamped it in Versamark and embossed it with Gold embossing powder and I LOVE how it looks (click on it to see it up close). The DSP is from the Bella Bleu collection which is really yummy, I love it!! And, I used the stamps set Vintage Vogue which is also very yummy and also one of my absolute favorites!!! The tiny tags are actually from the set in the Occasions Mini called Tiny Tags and they are punched out using the Tiny Tags punch. This is the first time I have used that set and I LOVE IT and see soooo many things I can do with this!! All in all, I am pretty happy with the way this card turned out!!! No recipe since I pretty much told you everything on the card, LOL! but if you have a question, leave it in my sidebar box and I will answer you :-) Now, I am off to do some shopping at the LSS here, so much new stuff out there that I love to just go look at it all and drool!!!! Hope everyone has a fantabulous day, and thanks for stopping by!
