Ghost Reruns!!

Hi there and a happy Wednesday to you all!  I am running (or trying to) at about 225 mph today trying to finish all my chores and work before I leave early tomorrow morning for Charlotte, NC for the Women’s Southern Craft Show/CHA Supershow.  If you see a speeding BMW convertible with a crazy dancing woman driving---well then you know that would be me trying to get to Charlotte by 1 pm LMBO! Winking smile I’m always running behind even under the best circumstances and I’m sure tomorrow will be no different!  I’m so excited to see all MY CRAZY friends and my *very special roomies* Pat Jaynes & Dana Shaw—we ARE the 3 musketeers LOL!  Charlotte, oh boy you better watch out cuz we are gonna TEAR IT UP (errr well at least I will be, they will watch and laugh)!  If you come to the show I will be at Betty’s Stamping & Scrapbooking Room booth tomorrow at 4 pm and then on Friday at 1 pm for a bit—so stop by and say HI!!!

BTW for all you ghost hunters you know that I had SOME big ghosty stuff going on in my house last year (including the video that shows “mr.ghost” throwing stuff at me).  I stopped mentioning it cuz’ I did get some weird exorcist-like people stalking me but I have had some stuff going on since then.  BUT NOTHING LIKE LAST NIGHT—OMGoodness was I creeped out!  I went to bed and my Ipad was on the floor next to the bed charging and turned off & closed—I had been asleep when I heard the beep-beeps of Words 4 Friends.  So I sat up and looked over the bed to see my Ipad cover wide open, words game open on the screen and tiles moving around by themselves.  I KID YOU NOT—something was playing the games for me.  So if you got game responses (Pat, Kim and more) last night it was NOT from me---I was so freaked I tried to wake up James but he was mumbling and telling me I was dreaming or on drugs (as if I need drugs to see stuff lol).  I WAS NOT—I was too scared to leave the room and get my Iphone so I could videotape it but it was STRANGE to see the tiles move around the screen and hey the words “it” did were pretty high scoring too so thanks LOL.  But “mr. ghost” please don’t do that cr*p again cuz’ Suzanne cannot take this kinda stuff, people already think I’m nuts and this only confirms it ‘kay?  Thanks much!

Gina K Release Day #1

P1120040_edited-1

Today starts off 3 days of fun blog hops showcasing the
Brand New Gina K releases for September! 

Today the DT is sharing projects done with “Under the Weather” and “Holiday Basket”.   I did a card yesterday (see post below this one) with this fabulous set “Holiday Basket” illustrated by Melanie Muenchinger.  I love the versatility of this set and I decided to eliminate the basket this time and focus on the gorgeous poinsettias instead!  My papers are new holiday ones by Authentique and I used a holiday embossing folder and a border punch (EK Success) to play up the card w/o taking away from the image.  The pine branch die cuts are by Marianne Designs from the UK.  I colored two images of poinsettias and cut them both out and popped some of the flowers up for dimension.  Some of the petals got a coat of Crystal Lacquer for shine, some got Stickles in Stardust and then some more of those “Elements Earth Textures” by Art Institute Glitter in the flower centers for more texture (this time using Saffron—read more about these in yesterday’s post).  All the cardstock colors are from Gina K’s Luxury Cardstock line here! (great for embossing too)

This particular cutie is from the “Under the Weather” set illustrated by Rupa Shevde and the lil’ animals in this set are so cute (even if they are ill lol)!  I used some fun lavender shaded papers and some Spellbinders dies to showcase the image.  One of the sentiments I stamped right onto my patterned paper in dark purple ink.  A few rhinestones and a bow made with the Bow Easy finish it off.

This cutie got colored with Copics and then I added some Stickles to the pillow for sparkle.  The tissue box I paper pieced (then shaded with Copics) and cut out & popped up with a dimensional. For some more fun I added some real tissue to the box   Winking smile


Now keep on hopping along to see more great inspiration using these sets---you are sure to find some new ideas and ways to use them!!  And you can win a set as well!
