Stuck on U...

I've been waiting for the chance to break out this stamp, and today was the day!! It's part of a set called "Retro Technology" and it's full of great puns :-) Since Joy Taylor used her cute typewriter stamp on CASE Study this week, I thought it was time for Stuck on U to shine! The colors are for the Play Date Cafe.  It's a 4 color week, and a really interesting 4 colors at that!  Here are the links to the challenges and my take on them :-)

Practical Scrappers!!

Today I'm am thrilled to announce that I will be a member of the Practical Scrappers Design Team.   Whooo hooo!  I am so excited :-)  The talent in the group is unbelievable, so I hope I can keep up!  The website has really fantastic information and tons of "how-tos" and tutorials. Lots of inspiration to be had, let me tell ya!!  So pop on over and take a peek at what the ladies are showcasing today.  You'll be glad you did ;-)

For Your Inspiration Challenge

This is my first attempt at this challenge, and I'm very excited :-)  I love this inspiration image.  So peaceful.  It reminds me of when I lived in England and the fog would freeze in the night and leave the trees encased in white ice.  So beautiful!!  Not much fog or ice here in Las Vegas, so it was a sweet reminder of cooler days :-)  I used my vintage lace stash and kept the tones cool and light to reflect the feeling in the photo.  Here is the link to anyone who would like to play along!

More Card Challenges

These two challenges seemed to link up perfectly!  I love blue and I was inspired by the concentric circles on Joy's inspiration card this week.  I decided to incorporate the trend of ombre, the gradual change of color intensity, into the challenge as well.  Black, white and shades of blue.  What a chic combination :-)

Here are the challenge links to anyone who would like to play along!

CAS-ual Fridays and Freshly Made Sketches

Loving pink right now!  I decided nothing is more fabulous than a hot pink bowtie accented with some neon green.  I think most of my clothes in the 80s featured these colors prominently :-)

Please play along with these challenges!

Card Archive

Since I've made the switch back over to Blogger, I've decided to add a few of my favorite cards for posterity sake :-) It's nice to see them in one place!

























The big switcheroooooo...


Today I made the big decision to switch back to my blogger site. Blog.com has really been giving me issues and I'm much happier with the flexibility over here :-) Sweet Freedom!!! So, without further ado, I'll be posting exclusively onto this site.

I'm planning to post one big gallery of my previous cards onto this site, in case anyone is curious :-) For now, if you'd like to check on my old blog HERE is the link! Thanks so much for bearing with me after the jump :-)
