Featured Stamper Challenge

Well we went to church last night and I'm just waiting for the bread dough to rise, so I thought I would pop on to see who the Featured Stamper challenge (FS76) was. It was Suziestampalot. So I too a peek at her Gallery on SCS here. (go ahead, you know you wanna look!)

What was I inspired by? I was inspired by this little beauty! Okay so I know my card doesn't look anything like the one you see in the link above, but I really really wanted to make an explosion card! So I used the same colors and dots and I even used some glitter...aren't you proud of me?
Here is a side view of the card...on the right hand flap I stamped Happy Belated Birthday. The pink paper was stamped with the Wanted stamp set in close to cocoa classic ink.

And this is a top view...isn't this card impressive? I know I would love to get a card like this for my birthday...even if it was late!

Like I said, I have been wanting to make an explosion card for a while and couldn't open Dawn's AWESOME video tutorial found here So I took the measurements that she had given at the top and fiddled with it for a while until I figured it out...trust me you wanna see her tutorial...I hear it's super easy to follow!

What do you need?

Stamps: Wanted, Older and wiser
Paper: close to cocoa card stock, Berry Bliss designer paper
Ink: Close to cocoa, stazon Timer brown
Accessories: scor-pal, glitter

Let me know if you need any help, I can always make a photo tutorial if you would like also!

NSR-Everyday Chit Chat

We had ourselves a good ol' family reunion today...my mother-in-laws side of the family and it was sooo nice to get together with everyone! We hadn't seen most of them in a couple of years (which is ridiculous cuz we don't live that far apart) So we all decided that we need to get together more often!

Here is a picture of Me-Maw (center) and Charlie and Aunt Pat. We just love these people and are so glad they are in our lives...Me-Maw is such an inspiration and such a wonderful woman of God! I pray that I will one day be as strong in my walk with Christ as she is! And this is a picture of all the kids there...we were missing about 5 kids on top of all the ones that were there...we are a bunch pf procreating fools! LOL

Thanks for stopin' by

Happy Stampin'
