I can’t believe it has been so long since I’ve posted! We’ve been out of town a lot visiting family and such and just been busy, busy, busy. I have been making cards and was excited to see that the Ways to Use It challenge today on SCS was to use one of my favorites- Kraft cardstock. Kraft is the perfect accent for so many occasion cards that we sometimes forget to use. So, since I am working on Father’s Day cards, (I know you are envious that I am working so far ahead!), I decided to use my new Great Impressions stamp with my new beautiful Designer Series Paper Parisian Breeze Specialty and one of my favorite sketches and some kool kraft paper and cross this one off my list! And I’ve got to admit that I just love the results! I used five different paper patterns and colored, clear embossed and cut out this cute image and popped it up as the focal point. I hope you like it too.
There’s more coming this week- I promise to stay in touch better than I have recently. I miss all of you!

What a strange title! It’s the color combo challenge for today on SCS and I added the “Sweet” to go with this cute, cute and yummy image from Great Impressions. The colors are Brilliant Blue, Pumpkin Pie and Garden Green. I love the green and pumpkin together and managed to work in the blue to comply with the challenge. I love Brilliant Blue, but adding it to the other two colors really WAS a challenge. Check out today’s great challenge creations on SCS here.

I love Julee’s MojoMonday sketches and her blog is to die for! You must check it out here!!! I played today using a brand spankin’ new stamp (for me) from Great Impressions. The sample at my LSS had a lot of tiny glitter on it, but I was a little too lazy to get that fancy. I do love this sketch Julee and will be back next Monday. Mojo Monday has a new home, so if you want to take a look you can click on the logo in my sidebar and get a peak at this spiffy site and the sketch of the week.
