A Lil' of This, A Lil' of That!!

Happy Wednesday to ya Friends!! Hope you're having a fabby week so far, only a couple more days until the weekend! I've been diligently working out and have cut my coke consumption back to just a 1/2 cup a day (might explain my irritability & grumpiness, hee hee)! I guess if EVERYTHING on my body hurts, it means my workouts are burning lotsa fat cells dontcha' think?? LOL--that's what I keep tellin' myself during my workouts, "think of all that fat meltin' away, hee hee!!"! Been lifting weights & running sprints and speed walking 2.5 miles everyday & lots of crunches worked in too---owweeeeee!! Anywho, movin on as my painful body ambles on today, hee hee.............

First card up today is a Father's Day fishing card I made using a fabulous new set "Just For Dad" by H&M Stamps. You can mix and match the stamps in this set to make dad a fisher or a hunter--very cool! I'm not a big fan of hunting (don't disapprove, just not my thing) so I decided to make my "dad" a fishin' one, hee hee! I cut the fish out & popped them up with dimensionals & also stamped the fishies onto shrinky dink sheets and made a charm to match! The fun dp is from DCWV's "the Green Stack"--perfect for guy stuff! I wrapped some Scrapper's Floss around the dp and tied off with my tag.

The fish have a coat of mint Shimmerz on them, his boots have diamond glaze & those are Goldilocks Bella Baubles (love the metallic look--remind me of nailheads). If you're in need of a Father's Day card this one is for sale in my Etsy shop (cuz' I already made my dad's):o)

This is just a cute-fun card I made for a friend using one of my many Precious Moments stamps! I went on a buying spree on EBay last year and bought so many of these stamps that you don't even wanna know how much I spent--egads! Isn't she a cutie w/ her lil' doggie friend--love it! I really let the yummy dp (urban prairie by BG) be the main embellishment along w/ this beautiful Prima "dandy" and some Spellbinders swirls (15% off right now). The sentiment is a new Lockhart stamp!

Make sure and stop by Susana's store blog to enter for some yumm-o-licious blog candy. Only 2 more days to enter!!

Have a fabulous Day!
