Hi! I didn't get a chance to make any new creations tonight. My uncle is visiting for the weekend, so we had a BBQ and then went to visit the Iris Gardens in our town. This week sure flew by with having Monday off...too bad every week can't be a 4 day week! Everyday we've been counting how many more days of school are left, and today it is 16 more days...time sure flies!

I used some of Cindy's MFT sketches at Splitcoast to make some cards tonight. Here is one of the cards, using "Can Ya Dig It?" for MFTSC32. I used the paper piecing technique on her dress, to give it a design. The MFT stamps are perfect for paper piecing because they are usually simple images to cut out. I also masker her feet sitting in the dirt to stamp the speckled background to look like dirt. Thanks for looking, talk to you later!

...by actually using my Nestabilities die cuts! I finally ordered the sizzix black adaptor pads, and they came in the mail today. I ran out to my porch to give them a whirl, and...they worked! I don't get a great embossing look yet, but I have read that I need a "tan embossing mat"...so the search begins for this!

Here is my card that I made for Taylor's Cupcake Sketch #17, I love her cards and sketches. I feel like lately, I can't make a card without a sketch! Not only are they fun to participate in, but they really make your cards look complete.

Have I mentioned lately that I love bellas? They are my go to whenever I feel like making a card, because they just seem so easy to make anything with. I really loved this card I had seen on Amy's blog, so I recreated it a bit using her color scheme and overall layout.

Wow! It's been awhile. Lots has been going on in my life... mostly dealing with work, but lately, I've been trying to devote more time to stamping. I created this card tonight, using a sketch from Jen Del Muro's blog. My love for cupcakes lives on...and my Mom found this perfect sentiment! It is made by Hero Arts (as is the cupcake stamp) and is adorable!
