Just wanted to share a quick card I made for today's sketch challenge on splitcoaststampers. SC173...check it out and come play along...lots of fun!
Stamps: Heartspeak (thanks Sissy!) and an Inkadinkado sentiment that I picked up for a quarter!
paper; basic black, certainly celery, shimmery white, certainly celery designer series paper
ink: basic black, SU! markers, soft sky ink pad
accessories: cload template, sponge, ribbon (thanks Diane!) and bling (again, thanks Diane!)
I hope the person that gets this card LOVES it...they should because they LOVE ME!!!

So you wanna see the announcements? Okay okay here they are!
Isn't she just the cutest little baby? Her name is Brooklyn and the name of the font that I used is called Brook...how perfect is that!
Here is a close up of the birth announcements. I used the Cutie pie
designer paper to create the cards and no stamping...the shame! LOL
In this photo I wanted to show you how they opened. The card front itself is about 1 inch shorter on the front to allow the name and scripture to show through...isn't it too cute?
Bridal Shower Invites
My sister (whom I love dearly) is hosting a bridal shower fora friend of hers in May and asked me to make her some invites...the brides colors are black, white, and silver...sissy asked me to use some pink...and since pink is my fav color I was happy to oblidge! What do you think? I like the pretty in pink wiith the silver and white...very showerey (I don't think that's a real word! LOL)
Here is a close-up of the Bridal shower invites. I used the cuttlebug to emboss the backgrounds (thanks David for helping!) and I embossed the main images with silver embossing powder. I think they turned out very pretty if I do say so
Thanks for stopping by!

He checked the left ear and said it was perfectly nirmal (good thing cuz that was not the one bothering me!) and then he checked the right ear and he said...and I quote! "Ohh, I can tell you have small Children!" and I said...why do you say that? and he said "well, you have a part of one of their toys in you ear!" WHAT!!!!! "yup he said...looks like a small round blue ball" Hmmm I said. So he went and got his little gadget and pulled out...are you ready...a BLUE MICRO BEAD!!!! I know I know how in the world? Then he is looking at me like what kind of mom would let their not even in school aged kids play with such tiny little beads! Then I had to confess that in fact that was not one of my kids toys...but one of my own! We had a good chuckle at that and as it turned out I also had fluid in my ear and a sinus infection! Go figure!
JUst thought you all might enjoy this little story and get a good laugh! Next time you go to the doctors be sure to have him check your ears...you never know what might be in there! LOL

We are reviewing the mono multi (item # 110755, cost $3.95) as far as price goes, it isn't one of the spendiest adhesives, and you can make a TON of cards, scrapbook pages whatever really, with it.
I love the fact that it has 2 size applicators, a pen tip on one side for precision reach, and a broad tip on the other for bigger projects.
What else do I like? I love the fact that it can be used permanent or temporary (just follow the onstructions on the bottle) But most of all I LOVE that it doesn't buckle my card...even when I use designer paper which is lighter weight than the cardstock! It is perfect for embelishments and anything else you want to adhere...except ribbon, I'm partial to ny ATG for ribbon and boxes!
I love it...so that means you should try it too!
Here Are some samples made with the adhesive...like you can tell...LOL
Both of these cards were made for todays color challenge on Splitcoast Stampers...we had to use real red, glorious green and night of navy. I used mytogether forever set and sincere Salutations an oldie but goodie! (gosh when did this set get old? It seems like I just got it yesterday!)
I love the jumbo eyelet going right through both ribbons and the scallops are my fav...big news about scallops and SU! comming soon, you will want one of these I'm telling you right now!!!
okay these colors totally made me think Christmas, so I went ahead and made some Christmas cards...cuz you know you can't have too many! I used the stamp set peaceful wishes (item# 106754) and Shimmery white cardstock (item #), real red wide grosgrain ribbon (item#109052) and hunter grosgrain ribbon (retired) used a ribbon slider from the Stylized hodgepodge kit (item# 111325) (available only unti May 31st!) The designer paper you see is the summer picnic designer series paper (item#111355) from the occasions mini and the color spritzer tool (item #107066) (hadn't used that in a while!)
What do you think? not too bulky for mailing and a great color combo!
Thanks for stopping by! Happy stampin'
