Okay, I can't chat tonight if I want to get this posted on TRY STAMPIN ON TUESDAY before it closes.
Here is the layout we had to use:

and here is the card I am submitting for the challenge.  WHO HOO I did it!

Supplies used:
Cardstock: Pear Pizzazz, Poppy Parade, W.White, Black, and In-Colors Design Paper (6x6 pack)
Stamp Set: Create A Cupcake
Ink: Pear Pizzazz, Poppy Parade, Blushing Bride and Chocolate Chip
Accessories: Fancy Scallop Punch, Cupcake Punch, Pretty In Pink ribbon, Weave Embossing Folder, Big Shot, and Dimensionals.

I hope you like it.  I made it in 1 hour, my fastest time ever.  However I sorta knew what I was going to do but it is one thing to think it and another to put in on paper.  Have a good evening.  Off to post this card on Stampin On Tuesday.

Well I tried but I don't think I am going to make the deadline for the challenge Try Stampin on Tuesday.  I know, I still have tomorrow to make my card but we have to get up early (for me anyway!) and go to the lab for some bloodwork.  Then when we get back home I will be helping Dick pull out some evergreen trees (6 more to go) and so far we have only been able to do 3 a day.  I won't go into detail but that job will take about 3-4 hours.  Dick can't work longer than 15 min. at a time before getting tired and has to sit down.  Kellie helped today and I helped him yesterday (I was sooo sore from picking up tree limbs and pine needles).  All I can say is I am so glad I dropped those unwanted pounds so I can do more activities now. 

I have been making a lot of craft items to sell at the campground this summer.  My sister, Sandi, wanted to know why I haven't posted any pictures of the items.  Well, I guess I am just LAZY! Maybe I will remember in the morning to take some pictures, I think.  Well gotta go as CSI Miami is starting.  See you later and thanks for stopping by.

WOW,  I am earlier this week with my entry for the Stampin on Tuesday Challenge #5.  I wanted to start using some of the 6x6 In-Color DSP (hostess gift level 1), so today I am using Blushing Bride.  I love the softness of this color.  Here is the layout for this challenge.


and here is my take on it.

I must say I really like how it turned out.  I scored around the edges and placed my 1" squares using the repositional tape to line them up.  After putting the permanent adhessive on I got the new Pretty In Pink Taffeta striped edge ribbon; cut it, and  added double sided sticky tape.  I positioned the ribbon on the inside rows first and then the outside edges.  Next I placed the Basic Pearls at each intersection. I made my butterflies using the embossed butterfly wings embosslit (blushing bride cardstock) but only used the smallest three.  I used the scallop oval punch and the sentiment from So Happy For You.  I am so glad that I am using clear stamps as I can split the words and line them up real easy.  I used Regal Rose ink pad to sponge around the oval and then used the Mat Pack to do the piercing. I hope you like this.  Be sure to check out Stampin On Tuesday and play along with us.

I have been spending the last few days making some craft items to sell this spring at our campground.  I will share with you when I get them done.  I found a couple of websites that are willing to share how to make these items.  I also need to make more cards.  Thanks for looking and see you next time.

Hi everyone,

Well, I finally finished my submission for TRY STAMPIN ON TUESDAY #4.  I knew what I was going to do but didn't get time until earlier this afternoon.  I wanted to incorporate the Ice Parlor Designer Paper and the ribbon & buttons on the card.  I had a hard time trying to figure out my two embellishments so this is what I ended up with.

Cardstock: Pacific Point, W.White (inside) , Very Vanilla for frosting & Ice Cream Parlor DSP.
Ink: Pacific Point, Peach Parfait, & Sarah Sand
Stamps: Create A Cupcake
Accesories: Ribbons & Buttons Pack, linen thread
Tools: Oval Punch, Crimper, Cutter Kit (for distressing both ovals),corner scallop punch (inside) and dimensionals

This is the inside:

Now you can go and check out the other submissions at Try Stampin on Tuesdays and maybe you can try it for yourself.  Praying for LOTS of sunshine this coming week.  By the way if you are viewing this please leave a comment. (even if it's to say "HI") Thanks for stopping by.
