I'm back ladies, better late than never I guess! I've been working on a few projects that I hope to share in the next couple of days and in between had to run the kids to activities. I'm so happy to see that people are entering for my blog candy! I'm so glad that the winner will be picked randomly, because I wouldn't want to pick a favorite out of all the responses:-) I'd have to be totally selfish and say I'd want to be deserted on an island for a few days by myself just to read a great book & eat some good food (hopefully my island would have a resort just a hop, skip & away-lol). I like my alone time too much. Don't get me wrong though I love my dh & kids dearly and love to be around people. I'm a very social person and I love to have get togethers and all that, but I also like "me time" when the kids are at school and the house is all quiet. I love that time--I can get so much done and I love to pop open the windows and just have the outside sounds as my music--its very calming. Anyway, I'm having such good fun reading everyone's responses that I might have to ask a random question once a week just to see the answers--LOL!!
Ok, onto my cards for the day. I have a mountain of thank-you cards to make for all the kindness sent my way last week while I was sick and I thought I'd get a good jump on them. Both of these are thank-you gate fold cards that I will be sending out. They are so easy to make and so much fun for the recipient to open. The dimensions for these cards can be found on the Scor-Pal website (under the April/May edition, Mothers Day gatefold). You of course can change the sizes of these to fit your needs. The red card's dp is from Me&MyBig Ideas and the polkadots are from PTI's "Polka Dot Basics" set which I adore almost as much as my "swiss dots" cuttlebug folder--lots of uses for this stamp set! The flower is from Verve Visual's "petal & stems" collection which is one of four of their new stamp sets (I of course had to had all four)--I love that this set has plain images and then the same image but with polkadots (love em).
The second card is with Crate Paper dp which I've been hoarding (do you hoard supplies too?--more on that tomorrow). I love the colors and designs of all their papers. I paired it up with PTI's "spring moss" cardstock. The stamps on the front and the inside are from Inque Boutique's Savoir Faire collection--this is the "Nightingale set "(mine are from A Cherry On Top, one of my favorite online stores). I have a few of their stamp sets here that I haven't opened, so this was my first time inking one up. I'm really impressed with the quality of stamp and their beautiful designs--I will definitely be using these some more. I colored the stamps with SU markers and the inside sentiment is SU too. The front flower has a dewdrop in the middle and just a little bling on the leaves (stickles ya know, come on you know that's my favorite kind) & its popped up w/ dimensionals.
Well, hope you liked everything! Remember if you haven't entered for the blog candy-please do so before 11 pm on Thursday nite so we can get a winner on Friday. See ya tomorrow!
**CC Designs** new stamp sets are being released at midnite tonight on All That Scraps -- I will be first in line to order both sets!! Make sure to check them out--really,really cute!
