Without you Do?

I *think* this sentiment could be from Gina K designs.. If you want to see why i don't exactly remember this scroll down to the bottom of this post. I talk about this a lot, I tend to stamp sentiments on odd pieces of scraps and cut them out and toss them into an altered tuna tin... and this is one of the reason's why I can A) make a bunch of things quickly & B) have no idea who makes what, or what the ink color brand is anymore... It's 4 inches square in real life, done from scraps on the table. guessing that pp could be Basic Grey, the cardbase is Opal Stardream, vintage lace, karen foster scrappers floss... ( dress it up button or Joanns button?) pop dots. Unknown blue cs scrap. altered tuna tinny (up close) going to shoot some of the other things i have laying around (its been rainy and gloomy all week) so the light has been off.


FS194 feel better soon!

There is black stickles in the "wells" of embossing on the what are they? dill weed blooms? so maybe you can see the catchlights in the glitter. This was done for the featured stamper challenge at scs this week, I chose this card: LynniePoo's and I ended up flipping the Friends Forever cuttlebug embossed panel over, adding some ribbon and made the mat larger so mine is actually 5X7 in real life. She had done her's for an CAS challenge ( which i did not link mine to, because it has more layers, but for me this is CAS ;) )

21 Years ago Today...

The metal seashell charms are unknown. the Sentiments from the Gina K. The Beach scene is from PSX, the swiss dotted ribbon is unknown. ( I have to see if I can find what the blue pp came off of to know if it was a big sheet or off of one of those little pads) These panels are up on pop dots. It's 4 1/2" X 6" in real life... Anniversary card for hubs, the plan is to go out to a very nice steak house for dinner together tonight san's kid. Yumm. :)


Happy Birthday Di!! *Ü*

Today is Hub's Mama's Birthday... got this new Gina K Designs label's 2 in the mail last weekend and stole some time to put this together, started out with the label stamped on Neenah with crimson red, die cut it with the new labels 14 and then cut the reddish mat by hand, its not perfect but it makes the edge slightly more visible, because i started digging for something to use with it and then found this really old Anna Griffin paper in my stash, (these look like they were made for each other) :) and will suit her to a "T". The sentiments from an very old SU set ( great greetings?) something like that, die cut with classic ovals, there are pop dots between the sentiment panel and the mat under it, "Latte" kraiser pearls. Vintage Lace. This one's 5X7 in real life. The cardbase is Gina K pure Ivory ( base weight) The lace is sewn to the printed papers.
