Branching Out SC274

Spring is finally here in my neck of the woods and for two days in a row I've been able to open the windows and let the fresh spring air in the house! LOVE it! Soon I'll be sleeping with my bedroom window open....well until the birds drive me nutty with their 5 am wake up
As much as I love the amount of sunshine with the long days we get up here, I'd prefer to not be woken up at the crack of dawn each morning by the birds nesting in the hedge outside my window....ha!
That brings me to my card for today's SC274. I decided to pull out my all time fave set from Taylored Expressions called Branching Out. I'd just received the Cosmo Cricket Garden Variety Mini deck from All That Scraps today and wanted to use it too!
Stamps: Branching Out
Paper: Kraft, Saffron, Cosmo Cricket Garden Variety DP
Ink: Memento rich cocoa
Accessories: copics, old olive ribbon, dimensionals

I have to go into work for a bit Thursday morning but then I'm coming home to stamp stamp stamp!
Thanks for stopping by!

Spoiled Rotten - Impression Obsession Week at SD!

Good Morning!
This week the Stamper's Dream Team are sharing cards/projects made with Impression Obsession images.
I used the ubber cute Spoiled Rotten along with some fun new My Mind's Eye Jack & Jill dp. I'm loving the trio packs of Prism papers that the store has. This prism paper came from the Blush Red set. I ordered a bunch of them and LOVE that I can always find something to match all the different designer papers I have ;) The image was cut out with a Spellbinders Die.
The line up this week is as follows:
Monday - Leslie , Laurie , and Becca

Tuesday - Cindy , Amy , Denise , Dawn and Michelle

Wednesday - Tosh , Silke , Cammie , Amy and Michelle

Thursday - Cindy , Leslie , Denise, Dawn and Michelle

Friday - Laurie , Silke , Tosh and Michelle
Did you notice a new face in there? Yes! Leslie Miller has joined the SD team!

Heidi MTSC67

Today is my last day as one of Mercy's Guest Designers :( I've really enjoyed the last month and I'll continue to play along each week with everyone else :)
For this week's MTSC67 I pulled out an adorable image from All That Scraps called Heidi Among the Flowers. Spring is here! Our snow is almost gone. There is just a little bit around the hedge and if I wasn't so lazy, I'd get out there and spread it around the rest of the lawn...haha!
Stop by the Muse Girls!

I'll be back this evening to announce the winner of the MTME template! I have to work all day...bummer eh?
Thanks for stopping by! Have a GREAT day!

I Give Our Friendship....

Two thumbs up!
A few days ago I stamped a bunch of images and watercoloured while watching TV. This card was made for the Featured Stamper Challenge and I cased this card here. I loved the layout and all the layers. Instead of going with a holiday theme as she did I went with a friendship theme ;) I also had to omit the sentiment tag layer because I ran out of
Oh and I watercoloured for the first time in ages!!
Stamps: Chick Flick; Cardstock: Bashful Blue, Pretty in Pink, Certainly Celery, Watercolour paper, MME DP; Inks: Versafine Black; Accessories: Aqua Painter, Ribbon, Border Punch, Ticket Corner Punch, Dimensionals

MTME DT and a give away!

Happy Sunday Girls!
I've been keeping a little secret from you and today I can spill the beans! You may have already seen Lauren's announcement on her blog but I'm joining the MTME DT starting in May! I was tickled pink when I received an email about joining her team. I admit I was a little nervous though. I'm not too much of a 3D project girl but I was offered the "card girl job" ;) That's more up my alley....haha!
Things are finally settling down again and I'm not overwhelmed with work, home and stamping. I figured by May I'd be set to go! I can't wait to get some new stamping goodies, try the digi paper and templates!!
There are a few others joining the DT too and I'm so excited!!!

Geny Cassady (she'll be a cardgirl too)

Lesa Rapp-

Stephanie Kraft-

To celebrate Lauren is giving away a free stamp set of your choice but to enter you will need to visit her blog.
For visiting me today and sharing in my excitement of joining the MTME DT, I will be giving away a gift certificate for a template of your choice. Just leave me a comment on this thread and the winner will be announced on March 30th! Good luck!

Hi, it's me...Wishing you a happy birthday

I was in need of a birthday card for a co-worker and was lucky that the Ways To Use It Challenge was to make some sort of a celebration card! Julia has been posting a WT challenge for FIVE years! Wow!
I was hoping when I got home from work Thursday that my Stamping Bella order had arrived but it hadn't :(
BUT I do have these cute PI girls from MFT to keep me happy!
I decided to play with the Flower Girl image that I got from Stampers Dream.
The inside was stamped using the Basic Birthdays set from Papertrey.
Thanks for stopping by today! Have a GREAT Friday!

I had a FANTASTIC time with my friend Karen!

I chose to CASE this card HERE.

Branching Out

Good Wednesday Morning!
Only a couple more days until Chloe and I go on a girls weekend road trip! We are off to visit my best friend...should be loads of fun!!
Last week I pulled out one of my fave stamps sets from Taylored Expressions called Branch Out. I had stamped the image on kraft and coloured with copics. Then the image sat on my desk until Monday afternoon. Luckily, I picked up some new My Mind's Eye dp and my SU! order arrived so I used my new papers and punch! Yippee!

Yesterday was such a productive day. I made whacks of cards but can't show them all just yet ;)

Stop by her blog to see the sketch and link up your card :)
My card was created using a JustRite set called Friendship Borders and Centers. It's out of stock currently at Stampers Dream but it'll be back soon enough. I've also used the super cool Lush designer paper along with some Prism papers.
Hope you have time to stop by the DT to see what fabulous cards they created!

Mojo 130 Butterfly

Good Monday morning!
Well I for one am glad the weekend is over...
I worked all weekend and now have today off! Yeah!
I plan on doing a lot of stamping today!
This is the first card in a line of many, I hope ;)
I don't often get to play along with Julee's Mojo sketches anymore because of working but today I did :) Which makes me very happy!
I stamped a butterfly but then didn't like the "flat" feel of it and well I'm lazy and don't like scissors much so I grabbed one the Jenni Bowlin butterflies that were still on my table, sponged a little Distress Linen ink on it and finished it off!

The image is called PI Flower Girl and the sentiment is from PI Heart Striped. The pattern paper is from Cosmo Cricket and is called Garden Variety.
