Found Yum!

I sure could use a cupcake right about now. But the cupcake queen probably needs one more. (Hi Jennifer). To celebrate the half baking of Baby Love, I give you a fat free but sugar filled delite.

Enjoy the tastiness.

Santa's Helper

I wanted to title this post Christmas Creep in honor of Hobby Lobby. Maybe a lot of you don't understand that phrase. Maybe you don't care. Honestly, there are still people in my area with wreaths and lights up, and if I ruled the world, there would be a fine if the stuff ain't down by January 6th. For more on this creep that has gone creepy, click HERE

So I decided to add to the creep since this card is next in my queue. I used stickers, die cuts, cheapie gems and a piece of ric rac paddy whack along with some odd papers and card stock. There was a little distressing on some pieces but really, it took about 5 minutes even with cutting and punching.

A couple of things-for some reason my blog is not posting to Facebook like it should. It takes over a week while others I read take only a couple of minutes. I may delete the networked blogs thingie over there. And I do have lots more stamped and otherwise cards, I just am slow, depressed, tired, discombobulated and constipated so it will be a while for them to get here. I still haven't finished my updated new blog, so it will be awhile before that gets here, if ever.

Here is another card from the files. For some reason, I was on a car kick at the time. I think I wanted to make retirement cards but somehow this one ended up a birthday phrase. The punches have been getting a workout on some of my cards lately. When I work with scraps, it's much easier to punch them for more depth than tear or distress.

I believe this is a Great Impressions stamp. No longer can I get most of them as Stacey closed up and the only other vendor locally does not carry the full selection each month. If you know of someone who carries them and has free shipping with a decent order (meaning $40-50...not 175), let me know as I would love to fill in the gaps of my collection.

The three little embellies on the lower left are not scrapbooking items. They were in the plant department at Michael's. I bought several colors and these were bronzy. I guess they were made for pots-you fill up the glass pot and stick flower stems in the beads. They work for me in this capacity. Never pass a good deal by.

The Journey Begins

I found this card made quite a while ago in another file. It was sticker heaven for me at the time. With Father's Day approaching, this might make a nice card for a father to be. I personally see it as a retirement card.

Just pieces of card stock, some odd eyelets and a rub on. Nothing fancy and those Tim Holtz Distress Inks are always in fashion.
