Know What I Love?

DSCN4434

I love Sale-a-Bration and this stamp set -  WHAT I LOVE. It's the last day to take advantage of Sale-a-Bration and get something FREE for every $50 you order. My friend Ruth Bingle from California sent me this card in a swap - I love how she used the Avery Labels (yep - that's what she stamped on) to make a faux tile look. Ruth could use a few extra prayers this week - she just had knee replacement surgery.

Stacked Circles - Say What?

DSCN4888

Here's a fun card that I made and forgot to share with you! The Pedal Pusher stamp set has been a blast to design with - I've made so many cards using this cute bike.  It's a FREE selection with your $50 order and remember all that is OVER at the end of the day on March 31st - OH MY!!!

DSCN4890w

 

I used my Circles Framelits to die cut various sizes of circles into a piece of typing weight paper and used them as templates to sponge Rich Razzleberry and Calypso Coral ink circles on the front of my Whisper White layer. The amount of color combinations you can use is limitless! Stamp over the top, add a few banners and WAAA LAAA - you have a colorful and bright card!

WEEKLY DEALS JOKE

How to train your wife....

The first man married a woman from New York. He told her that she was to do the dishes and house cleaning.. It took a couple of days, but on the third day, he came home to see a clean house and dishes washed and put away.

The second man married a woman from Cincinnati. He gave his wife orders that she was to do all the cleaning, dishes and the cooking. The first day he didn't see any results, but the next day he saw it was better. By the third day, he saw his house was clean, the dishes were done and there was a huge dinner on the table.

The third man married a girl from Wisconsin. He ordered her to keep the house clean, dishes washed, lawn mowed, laundry washed, and hot meals on the table for every meal. He said the first day he didn't see anything, the second day he didn't see anything but by the third day, some of the swelling had gone down and he could see a little out of his left eye, and his arm was healed enough that he could fix himself a sandwich and load the dishwasher. He still has some difficulty when he urinates.

HAVE A GREAT DAY!

Ends on Wednesday, March 31st!!!

Use up those SCRAPS!!!

Bunny

 

DSCN5268

 

Here's a great way to use up your Designer Series Paper scraps!!! I cut squares from my scraps and then used the Envelope Punch Board to round my corners on 2 sides of each square. I really love the corner rounder on that tool. My butterfly is die cut on the Blushing Bride Glimmer paper - I like to put this paper face down on my Precision Plate to die cut it - and I used the Magnetic Platform. This cuts the best with dies that have lots of metal...like this butterfly. You don't want to use this combination for framelits...the dies that are just an outline of metal. Anyhow...the Big Shot Brush is the BOMB!!!! Makes me want to use my intricate dies more since I bought it - they are so each now.

Roses anyone?

DSCN5229

 

Isn't this pretty??? It's such a simple design using the ROSE WONDER bundle.  I received this card in a swap and it was one of my FAVS! I know that the FINE TIP GLUE PEN makes gluing the rose down a breeze!
