Fab Friday 164

Hi stampers!  Happy Friday!  I've been MIA because it's just been a crazy week!  I had every intention of blogging from our hotel while we took a little trip to Six Flags in St. Louis with my parents as is our end of school tradition but I didn't have time.  I came down with some food poisoning, eek!  Then we spent the day at the park and tried to get going early the next day to avoid bad weather driving back to Tulsa.  We still hit some and then ended up having horrible weather here Wednesday.  The river is flooding pretty badly (we are ok but close enough to make me nervous) and we almost had a tornado form basically in our back yard.  CRAZY!  So, I spent a lot of the time I was going to blog, watching the weather!

Anyway, I did manage to get a card done for Fab Friday!  Of course, my pre-order came right when I left town!  So, I pulled some of it out to play today!  But first, let me show you the colors!

It's super springy!  I feel like we passed spring or waffled back and forth between winter and summer here!  So, here's some spring from the new catalog!

I used sponge daubers to color in my flowers with the three colors.  How fun is the little cutout I used from the Perfect Parcels Die?  This was a fun and simple card and I think it works perfect with the colors!

Make sure to check out the design team and play along with us!

And let's hope the weather calms down!

Happy stamping!

Mother's Day Hibiscus

Hi stampers!  I hope you all had a great weekend!  We had a nice Mother's Day weekend, just the three of us.  We are actually seeing all three of our sets of family in the next three weeks :) so we will celebrate with all of them soon!

It's a day late but I'm sharing the card for my step mom today.  She LOVES hibiscus flowers and bright colors so this was the prefect card to make for her!

I did a good job at using some of my retiring products over the weekend!  This card features the Humming Along Stamp Set, Tropical Escape DSP, and Calypso Coral Ombre Ribbon all of which are retiring.  I love the Calypso Coral along with the greens in the DSP!  I really hope Cheryl is going to like it!

Happy stamping!

Fab Friday 166

Hi stampers!  Happy Friday!  It's time for another challenge over at Fab Friday!  We have a sketch for you this time!

I went with the Follow Your Art Suite for this one so you get a little sneak peek of new catalog goodies!

The colors in this suite are so fun and I chose to use Coastal Cabana, Blushing Bride, and Calypso Coral.  The little main focal thing can be used to wrap ribbon or twine around but I like it for the sentiment, too!  The little border is from the dies and is a fun scalloped design.  This will be a fun card for any of my crafty friends!

Stop Raining

Hi stampers!  So it's supposed to storm and rain more this week!  I'm going to post another Flowering Desert card in hopes that it makes it stop, LOL!

I'm really sad this stamp set is retiring because I just love it!  I mixed some retiring in colors with some new ones here and with some that are sticking around.  I kind of wish we could keep every color all of the time!!!!

My background is watercolored in Balmy Blue.  I need to use that color a lot more, it's so pretty!

Happy stamping!

Manly Monday

Hi stampers and happy Monday!  I am dragging over here today and probably will be for the foreseeable future.  We had thunderstorms last night like from 1:30-4.  I don't sleep great when it storms anyway but our little doggie FREAKS out.  I was kept up by her for almost that whole time.  Send help and coffee!  Unfortunately, it's supposed to storm again tomorrow and tomorrow night and they say it will be really bad Wednesday night.  EEK!  Why can't it get it all over with in the day time????

Anyway, I've got a card I cased from the upcoming catalog!  The samples on the cover and inside the catalog are really what sold me on this suite, they are just fabulous.  The sentiment also seems fitting for this week, LOL!  It's also a great masculine card which I don't do often!  The main panel is Seaside Spray which is a really pretty new in color.  The Sailing Home Bundle is just really great!

Take a look at the detail and texture on this Come Sail Away DSP, I just love it!  Isn't that fantastic?

I changed the sentiment from the card in the catalog but other than that, I made it just the same.  I thought this one was more useful.

Off to rest up while I can...or as much as a little someone here will let me!

Happy stamping!
