Good Tuesday Morning!

Good Tuesday Morning!
Well today will be the first day in a long time that my neighbour doesn't phone me at 8 am asking what I'm doing and me replying that I'm bloggin'....lol
We won't see one another for a month almost...wow~
She's gone home to Newfoundland(first time in 9 years) for her Mom and Dad's 50th Wedding Anniversary. On Sunday I whipped up this card for her to give them from me. I don't use black often but thought it turned out nicely.
Stamps: Verve Anniversary Birds; Cardstock: Black, River Rock, Watercolour Paper and DCWV DP; Inks: Black Stazon and River Rock; Accessories: Aqua Painter, May Arts Ribbon, Nesties. SU scallop edge punch, Prima, Dew Drops
This next set of cards is for my very good friend, Michelle. She asked if I could make her a set of simple cards for her Mom and MIL with this Verve sentiment. This is about as simple as I can go. I wanted to add some butterflies but worried by Christmas they'd be all flattened...lol
I'm going to bring these with me when we visit her in Boise in a couple of weeks...yah! Can't wait!
Since the cardbase is so dark I decided to add a piece of Saffron CS and stamp one flower in Saffron to the inside.
Stamps: Serenity; Cardstock: Eggplant, Saffron, WW and Chatterbox DP; Inks: Eggplant and Saffron; Accessories: Circle Nestabilities, Swiss Dots Embossing Folder, May Arts Ribbon, Dimensionals

Since I always schedule my posts to go at 4 am my time...I'm obviously not up yet and haven't chosen a winner for the Roughin' It stamp set but will do that soon!
You're in luck! There are TWO more SUInk Design Team members giving away blog candy today! Stop by their blogs to see all the info!
Lauren and Bethany
ETA: Winner of the Roughin' It stamp set is:

I cannot find NESTABILITIES in my part of the country. Guess I'll just give up and keep on cutting circles with the lid off an oatmeal box. LOVE the sentiment and entire card.

AHa - now I know how you get things posted so early in the morning, when I've just gotten up some days and found your cheerful daily greeting. Here I thought you got up at some unGodly hour of the morning to stamp. Well, we probably all do do that at some point. LOL. I love these cards. The anniversary one is wonderful. I haven't been around for a while since I went to convention in Utah, so I'm looking forward to scrolling down to see what you've created while I've been gone. (Not all that thrilled to be back to Edmonton's wishy-washy weather!!!) Joan
