You're tea-riffic!

Hello folks, thanks for stopping by. Today's card is thanks to this weeks Mojo Monday card challenge . Also I've been drooling over My Mind's eye: Stella Rose - Hattie paper. So I thought nothing would be better than using Fiskars Latte Love clear stamps for this lovely paper. I had lots of fun putting this one together and somehow it took me less time than with simpler cards.Although i hated covering the flower print with another layer, but the sketch called for it. I hope you like it. Have a blessed Easter everyone!

Sorry I missed your Birthday.....

Hello folks, thanks for stopping by. Todays card was inspired by my absence and being away from friends and family, therefore I've missed a couple of Birthdays.

Also, I've had this lovely designer paper from My Mind's Eye - Lost and Found, that I've been dying to use. And I really like using SU! Sage Shadow, why they discountinued it, I don't know?!  But I really like these color combos together, it gives a touch of elegance.
And it also gave me a chance to use my Deckle edge scissors. I used them on the edge of the Crumb card stock mounted on the designer paper. Just to get it a diferent dimension, other than using the same straight edges as the rest of the card.
Let me know what you think? Toodles!

Paper: SU! Crumb, Very Vanilla, Sage Shadow, My Mind's Eye- Lost and Found

Good Friends are like Stars...

Hello, sorry for the long absence. I've been in limbo with getting myself together since my last real job. I've mentioned before that I've been unemployed and I've been back and forth with different projects and changes since 2009. Its been a long journey to recovery to secure something better for me, so I'm going back to school to learn a trade. Luckily its for only 10 weeks, because life is leaving me behind! lol
Anyway, I've been away in Vegas, staying with my best friend hoping to find something there. Folks, I come to find out the Vegas has thee worst job market than California! After three months of not getting any where, I chalked it up to life lesson, and went back to L.A. Que sera, sera.

But I really, really missed my craft desk and all its goodies! So here we go.... this card was inspired by me having dinner with a friend that I haven't seen for a while, but I still have great camaraderie with. And with the help of this weeks Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge 112 .

Please stop by Karen Giron's the sweetest thing blog, she has great weekly challenges. So I started off with SU! Chocolate chip for the base of the card, then followed up with Whisper white, Sage shadow and piece of My Mind's Eye Fine and Dandy True blue collection. I dried embossed it with Cuttlebug Spots & Dots folder. Instead of staying with the sketches basic square for the eye point, I replaced it with Spellbinder Nestabilities Labels 10. I then sponged the edges of the cut out with SU! Baja breeze ink and used the Fiskars Friends Forever Quotes for the sentiment. And before I tacked down the die cut I added three pieces of 1/4" Chocolate chip ribbon. Then I started with the basic black ink, then I took a Q-tip with rubber stamp cleaner and rubbed of the "stars" portion of the sentiment and filled it in with SU! Summer Sun color pen. And since the sketch looks really cute with the stars on the edge, I stuck with it. I used My Mind's Eye Fine and Dandy True blue chipboard companion using colaborating colors and shapes.I hope you like and thanks again for stopping by.
