Sale-A-Bration comes to a close!

I have reeeeally needed some crafting time! Fortunately I had a stamp class this weekend! The sneak peeks turned out to be for a later class, lol. We'll make those in April. And that means I now have 5 new cards to show off in the coming days! yeay!
The class theme was changed to "Distressed Projects." Expect to see some pretty and messy cards here, lol! We'll start with this one, which I was excited to use since its the very last day of Sale-A-Bration! It took some serious thinking, lol, and I think it turned out really pretty!

Class Sample #2

This card is very, very similar to the ones found HERE, but this one is easier for a class because it requires less accessories for me to run out of, lol. I seriously love this bunny as a baby card!!
So are you coming to the class? Its this Friday afternoon!

Ink: Basic Gray, Baja Breeze

Upcoming Card Class!

Yes, I got some stamping done! I've also been swamped with other things, had a computer virus take over my computer (and the rebuild involved with that) and ya know, all the other things going on in my life. So maybe I can get a few blog posts up before the end of the month, lol.

I have a customer who keeps requesting wedding and baby cards, but most of my other customers don't need many of those. This card is pretty enough for a wedding, but its also fitting for a nice birthday, thank you or thinking of you type card. That means anyone who attends the class can find a way to use it! I've got a class this coming Friday, and this is one of the cards we'll be making!
Stamps: Teeny Tiny Wishes, Pocket Silhouettes
Ink: Pretty in Pink, Basic Gray

I actually got a scrapbook page done this weekend!! Yeay!!
These pictures capture a funny kind of moment...My daughter hid her face behind a tree and told me she was pretending she was in in a forest. The thing is, the tree is a scrawny, tiny thing that our lawn crew was trying to cut down only about a month before. The second picture shows the tree in reality, even if the lighting is lousy.
I think its great when you can photograph something straight out of a child's imagination, and then to scrapbook it is a lot of fun too!
Ink: Always Artichoke marker
Paper: Certainly Celery, Melon Mambo card stocks
Accessories: Ice Cream Parlor SS Kit (retired)

I used the Simply Scrappin' Kit from last years Sale-A-Bration freebies. What have you gotten this year? I am putting an order in on the 22nd if you need to replenish your supplies or want anything that's going away...!

Baby Mojo!

Yes I AM alive! hee hee! I have been sooo busy and I haven't felt well this past week so any actual free time I've had I've just rested. In fact I pulled out all my stamping supplies once....and ended up just putting it all away. sad! But today I really had to make a baby card, so I went a head and made two! (To be honest, I stamped 5 images and colored them, but I only got two of them on a card)

I won this adorable spring-y stamp set from Susan's blogiversary, and her's is a blog I have been reading since about the time she began! I've sent you to her before for the super cute shirt/tie cards I did at Father's Day. Anyway, I've had this set for a couple weeks now and have been itching to play with it.

Maybe this image doesn't work as well as I thought for a baby card, but! maybe it does! I liked it anyway, lol! I also used this weeks Mojo Monday sketch for these cards, and retired DP, mixed with current accessories!
 and a close up of the sweet bunny baby boy!
