Little Miracle


Our store manager and his wife are expecting their first child, she is due any day now!  So I made them a card to go with a gift my g/f and I picked up for them.  I got the template for this card from Stampington, in the Tempting Templates section.  To me it’s amazing that they know what sex the baby is before they have it.  I don’t believe we had that option when I had my children!  I think it may take some of the excitement away, but maybe not?  However, it sure does make gift buying so much easier! lol

Dress Card

I used the Boho Background stamps to decorate the dress, and tons of distress ink, and some pink SU ink, because the inside of the card is white.  The Little Miracle stamp is from Hampton Arts.  The ribbon is velvet from M’s and I can’t remember who made the ribbon charm.

Thank you so much for stopping by today.  I have been in a stamping funk, and trying to get myself out of it!  Tonight I am really hoping to get some stamping done!

Have a wonderful evening,




The Key to Failure


Tonight I went over to a friends for our stamping night.  We get together once a month, and take turns showing different techniques or just teaching a project.  We also do a card exchange and set a theme.  This months theme was chipboard/grundge board.  I felt instant panic!  I don’t usually work with either of these products, but I did buy hmmm…a bit of it! lol  Anyway, once I got over my panic, I set about trying to figure out what to do.


I went with a very simple card, using cream cardstock, and basic stamping and sponging.  I used a grundge board key, and painted it with Tim Holtz crackle paint.  I bought a couple bottles a while back and had never tried it.  I LIKE IT! lol  I stamped the background and sponged distress inks over it, and went over a few parts with the Tim Holtz essentials white pen.  I then did the same with the sentiment, and ran it through the cuttlebug using the Labels 4 from Spellbinders.  I did a bit of sponging with the die still on, took it off and did the edges a different colour, then went around the edges with the white gel pen.  I guess over all I am ok with this card! lol

Have a wonderful day!


Challenge card and Mary Jane Shoes


My friend Flower and I decided to challenge each other with a sketch.  We got it off Sketch Saturday.  Anyway, this is my take on the sketch!  I did add the flower on the left hand side, as the card didn’t really look balanced to me.  Hope you forgive me Flower! lol

I posted the 2 pictures because I wanted to show how I stamped the backs of the shoes this time.  This set is going to a very special couple.  The Mom to be has cervical cancer, and has had 3 surgeries, and they weren’t sure that they could even get pregnant.  BUT, she did!  I think it’s so awesome, and that is why I stamped Believe in Miracles on this card, instead of the usual congratulations. 

The baby booties stamp is from Stampendous, and the sentiment is from M’s.  The baby sentiment and flourish on the front of the shoe is from Heidi Grace. 

Thank you so much for stopping by,
