This has nothing to do with cards in any way shape or form, but she is so cute... :)

Kind card

My grandma fell the other day. She ended up moving in with us for awhile. One of my friends at SCS sent her this encouragement card. Thank you Leslie.


I colored some of the big on christmas images I stamped the other day. This one got sparkles on it.

This award was given to me by Julie. Check out her blog. It is wonderful. If I would have thought about it I would have given her this award.

I would have also given this award to Jeni. She has taught me so much about stamping and actually talked me into getting my first stamp.

I think my third favorite would be Cindy at:

Then there is Aimee at Ms. Manners stamping. I have followed her for a very long time.

I also love I Stamp

My other favorite blog I can no longer find cause I lost her link, but some day I will find her again. That one is called, God myself and the railroad track if I remember correctly.

Another notebook.

Another notebook I made for the flea market this weekend. I used doodle this to make the swirls. I am so happy I bought that stamp. I can't wait to use it again.

Same difference.

Another view of my notebook I made for the flea market. This time I used chocolate chip instead of white ink though.

Same difference.

A notebook.

Uncle invited me to go to the flea market with him this weekend so I am making little things I can sell to raise money for autism. I made this notebook in a lot of different colors. I am trying to get my basement cleaned up and make some christmas cards also, but it doesn't seem to be going anywhere. Oh well.

A notebook.

Happiness is a journey.

This is a wonderful stamp set. I'm not really sure why I took it's picture to post, but I guess a few days ago I had a reason. I have already used it more than most stamp sets that I have.

Happiness is a journey.

Doodle this.

I have wanted this stamp set since the day it came out. I have no idea why I waited till they retired it to buy it.

Doodle this.

Gillians card,

This is an absolutely beautiful card. I bought the score pall so i can make it now. Shh don't tell. I still have to sneak it into the house. TEHE

My card from the anyone in st. louis wanna stamp get together.

This was the card I made for the pink lemonade card swap. Doesn't it look cheesy next to Dina's? Wait don't answer that... :) If you are wondering why I didn't put all of the cards in one post. It is because I uploaded them from my cell phone. It is just easier to put them in their own posts than to save them and then repost them. s

My card from the card day

Cindy's card for June's get together.

This is the card Cindy made for our get together. Isn't it perfect. I love the colors and the chrochet flower. She made all of the flowers for us. I really want to get her patern. Woudn't that be fun to do?

Dina's card from my shoe box swap.

This was Dina's card from my Get together. I love it. She did exactly what I was attempting to do when I designed my card. I'm glad I know how to do it right now. And yes this was part of the inspiration for the Pink lemonade pie 6x6 recipe swap.

This is part two of Gillian's card.

This is part two of Gillian's card. Isn't it way cool ? I had to order the scor-pal so I could do this one again. They say there is all kinds of fun stuff you can do with the Scor-pal. I can't wait to try it out.

Jenny's card from my shoe box card group.

This is a really nice card. I loved the paper. The lady is drinking pink lemonade. It is a perfect summer time card. I am Glad Jenny could be with us!

A card from my card day.

Julies card from my shoebox card swap.

This is Julie's card from my shoebox card group. She made it out of a paper bag. Actually, this is the one I made. She has all kinds of tricks up her sleeve. I can't wait to see what she brings to next months.

Julies card from my card day.

JoAnn's card from our get together

This was JoAnn's card. She was at the shoe box card get together I hosted a few weeks ago.

Simple Mexican Lasagna recipe swap

This is my mexican swap. I don't have a stampin up stamp that fits the mexican food theme. So I used the sponge stamp I have to paint my kitchen walls if I ever get to have my own kitchen. (someday) (I'm 34 and still haven't lived in a place I could decorate my own kitchen) This was a 4x6 swap not a 6x6. But it's basically the same idea. I used eyelets in the top for decoration. Thanks for looking

sweet dreams

pink Lemonade pie recipe

This was the second version of the pink lemonade pie recipe. I used tart and tangy once again for this one :) I just stamped pink lemons all over it instead of red strawberries. Why I didn't use yoyo yellow i'm not sure cause lemons are usually yellow. oh well. I like it. I used my tombo glue runner to put tape on top of the velum "glass" and then sprinkled embossing glitter on the top. Simply because I can't find my silver or white glitter.

Vella's chopped salad recipe swap 6x6

This was my very first attempt to do a recipe swap. I am not sure I like it as much as the ones I typed out. Oh well. I used the yummy stamp. I stapled some ribbon in the corner. It is relatively simple to make, I just wish my hand writing looked better. This one is complete.

asparagus noodles recipe 6x6 card swap

This is my second card swap I am in. It is also a 27 card swap. That gets real annoying when you don't like to pay attention that much I have about 6 done. Anyway. I used a glue pad to stamp my dragonfly from winged things. and then I sprinkled some martha steward glitter on the glue. It turned out really neat. I like it better than the other attempts I have made for this card.

pink lemonade pie 6x6 recipe swap card (strawberry)

I'm in about 10 recipe card swaps. I have decided I will never do another one that requires making more than 7 cards for the swap. This one used up all of my pink paper. Some of them were stamped with strawberries, and some with pink lemons. I will post the pink lemons further up.
