bad or Fattening

Oh how I am a serious rubber stamp addict. I See and I must buy. Does this happen to you? Well, I went into one of the local Scrapbook stores, and immediately when I walk in there is a ne rack of clear stamps that I have never seen (I am in there about 1 a week). I'm looking, and i decide "oh, there only $2.00, I need all of them"). Well, I felt guilty about buying all of them so I bought some for Kerry, and pia, and I bought a few for myself. They have been sitting in a draw for months uninked, so I challenged one of my yahoo groups to do a humorous card challenge, knowing I need to use my stamps at least once. Here is my outcome.

Stamps; inkadinkado
Paper: SU choc chip, baby pink cardstock. Unknown pattern paper
ink: prismacolor pencils, gamasol
misc: bling, brads, punches

Iv've been a busy bee lately...........

Due to all the excitement with A Muse apolooza, I have started busting oout all my and my friends stamps to see what I come up with. I felt pretty pleased with myself on my 3 Amuse cards. I made one for my friend Pia, how is going to france, and I made the suoer hero card because I wanted to play with those stamps., and I was havib=ng a good time with the hiker. What do you think? Any opinions? would have you have changed anything?

Happy birthday

While playing around yesterday, I spyed some scrap paper that was calling my name. The cupcake image was perfect for the paper and saying, so made this really quick card.

Stamps: justjohanna
Paper: Hmmmmm
Ink: staz on, prisma color markers
acces: stickles,pop dots

Happy Day

I made this card for a image challenge for SGGW. The image is actually hostessed by me. I have had the stamp and saying for months, and I needed a reason to sit down and use it. So, I was thinking it was a rather easy image, but I sat down for 3 hours playing around with it. Finally, I came up with this. I had actually bought all these different pattern papers to make my daughter's birthday scrapbook pages (yeah, like I scrapbook), but instead I made this card. I am still not sure about the purple, but, you know what, This card took 3 hours to make, so as far as I am concerned it has to be fine. As KDC would say "If you want perfect, go to hallmark". Hope my partner likes it.

Photo time

I am currently taking a photography and digital imaging class at the local college, and these are some of the shots I have taken over the last week of two. I haven't had time to make cards, because I have been busy with the camera.
