Window Pane Cards

Man....I totally love these little window pane cards. I've looked online, and can't find who makes them now! Why do I figure out I love something ONLY AFTER I HAVE THROWN THE PACKAGE AWAY????

This card was made by using a Hero Arts flower set, and then adding little Prima Flowers on some of the stems. You can't tell from the picture here, but I used Perfect Pearls as a dusting on the flowers to give them that shimmer look.

Red and Orange FW Card Swap

I am in a great online stamping group called The Divas of Stamping Design, and we do swaps each month called "Friendsday Wednesday" Each month you are paired up with a different person and you send that person out a card on Wednesday. This month I got a lady named Beth. The theme for the month was simple....just use the colors red, yellow, and orange in any shade for your creations. These are the 4 cards I came up with for Beth.....hmm....I hope Beth doesn't read my blog very often or she will see them in advance! I really like the triangle type stamp I got on my trip to Florida. I loved making the triangle card you see here. Any unusual shaped card is wonderful to me!

Stamping Goodies

I ended up going back to Florida again this summer. My uncle passed away this time, so it was a very sad occasion. My uncle Buddy lived in Miami, and it was 20 hours from us, but he truely was one of my favorites. Buddy always had a kind smile and a warm hug for you anytime you saw him. I was also glad to get to see a few of my cousins again. It was a shock to learn that one of them had been a stamper and scrapbooker, but I didn't even know it! My cousin was sweet enough to take me to a stamp store there in Miami called The Scrappy Stamper. A fabulous little store with a nice selection of goodies. I had just put in a huge order online before I left home or I would have really hit the shop wide open, but I still managed to get these goodies. I also found out that the shop owner was also from my home state which was kind of neat! I was excited to get the new H2O's to paint with, and I now totally love this new flower punch my cousin told me about. I also can't seem to enter a store without buying just a couple of Halloween stamps. My Halloween stamp collection is HUGE! It is my favorite holiday to stamp for! Well, I'm off to stamp.......
