Fab Friday 129

Hi stampers!  Happy Friday!  This was a long week with me straining my hamstring on Monday.  It's hard for me to take it easy, especially with a three year old!  It's feeling better although a long way from normal but I can at least sit at my desk chair now!  Not that I!

Anyway it's finally FRI-YAY!  That also means it's time for a new challenge at Fab Friday!  This week we have a sketch for you.

I used the picture perfect birthday stuff for my card because it's just too cute!  And bright!  And fun!

Did you know the artist that designed this paper MADE everything on the photo side of the paper?  She made the hats and bows and streamers and everything and then took pictures of them for the paper.  It's so cool!

My photo isn't the best this time, sorry.

Anyway, make sure to check out what the rest of the team did and play along with us!

Lots of Lavender

Hi stampers!  I called January the Monday of months yesterday and I still stand by that statement.  Monday was also very Monday-ey.  I managed to strain my left hamstring something AWFUL in kick boxing class.  I haven't done that in a couple of years and I got it worse than I ever have.  OUCH!  You'd THINK I'd be able to stamp since I need to rest it but sitting at my desk chair with a 90 degree bend in my knee is horrendous!  I'm posting this on Monday night and hopeful that by the time you read this on Tuesday and I slept on it, it will magically be better, lol!  Have you noticed a theme with me?  That maybe I'm accident prone???  Sigh.

Anyway, at least I have a pretty card to share.  I used the SAB set, Lots of Lavender, which you can get totally FREE with a $50 order!  It's so pretty!

It's made to be a two step stamp so that you can actually stamp the outline and then use another stamp to fill in with color but I only used the outline here and watercolored it myself.  And I used plum and eggplant which I NEVER use.  Who am I?????  But they combine to make some pretty lavender!

I paired it with some Wood Textures DSP and the Pinewood Planks Embossing Folder for a rustic look.  I also pulled in a sentiment from Hanging Garden because, well, the sentiments sold me on that set!

Here's to hoping I can get back to the gym today...or at least sit at my chair ;-)

Vibrant Valentine

Hi stampers!  It's a new week and January seems to be dragging by!  I saw a meme the other day that said it's the Monday of months.  It's totally true!  January always seems so cold and long!  I'd love to go back home for a visit since I haven't been since Thanksgiving but we've got a number of things going on and I have a wedding next month so I'm not trying to drive 16 hours round trip two times in a row.  Sigh.  At least maybe this vibrant card can brighten things up around here!

I tried to resist the Heart Happiness set in the Occasions catalog but they did some really cute stuff with it in Salt Lake so I HAD to order it ;-)  I really love the heart I used on this card.  It looks fantastic embossed!  I colored the little rose (which actually fits within a heart framelit but I chose to fussy cut it) with my coral Blends.  And that Petal Passion DSP is AMAZING in black and white!  It's SO versatile and is perfect for Valentine's!

And hopefully "winter" won't seem as long here in Tulsa as it did in Chicago.  I'm looking at warmer temperatures, even for just a few days, later this week!

Is everyone else feeling like January is the new Monday?

Winter Rainbows

Hi stampers!  So, looking at other people's creations lately there have been rainbows everywhere it seems!  Or maybe it just seems that way since I made this card the other day?  Maybe everyone is over the holidays now and anxiously awaiting spring?  I am...except for the severe weather that accompanies it!  Now that we don't have a basement...and Ian sleeps on a different floor than us.  I get anxiety just thinking about it, lol!  Better look at my card again to take my mind off of it!

This one went together super fast with our adorable washi tapes!  I didn't fit quite all of them on my card front so I'll have to try another one ;-)  I trimmed off just a tad of my label just to add a little interest by changing the shape.  That's a great punch that's still available from the Holiday Catalog!  Hooray!
