I'm GONE!!!

Just thought I'd let you know I'll be gone to a class until next Saturday. It's going to totally suck not having a computer... Maybe I'll be so tired from class I won't have time to think about it. I have stuff pre - posted to post for my challenges but I'll have to check out your blogs when I get back.

Have a great week!!

Heather


Valentines Card #2....

Ok not the traditional pink... But I already had the image colored and this Basic Grey paper went perfect with it. And who says Valentines has to be all pink and red.. :) Basic Grey has AWESOME paper. I love those little 6 x 6 paper packets. I can never have enough. Oh I get the big packets too, but I love the smaller size. I can cut it up with out feeling bad at all.

And how about that Sarah Kay image. Totally adorable!! Stay tuned more tomorrow...

Fly Away Home...

My cards have become popular at work. One of the girls in another office needed a special birthday card for her son who is turning 4. Well of course I told her I could whip her one up. So I stamped up this cute Penny Black image and colored it doing my lunch hour at work. I don't have that many boy images.. I really like the girlie ones I guess. But I thought this one would be perfect. She loved it!!

Stay tuned tomorrow for the Scrapmagasinet DT Blog Reader Challenge & the Everybody Art Challenge.

Making Handmade Cards...

Can you believe it Claire asked me to be a guest designer for Making Handemade Cards!! How exciting is that!! Claire makes these wonderful digital card kits. The kits comes with everything you need to make wonderful cards. All you have to do is pick out the stuff you'd like to use and print it out. Cool!! I made both of these cards in a few minutes using basic supplies. The hardest part for me was picking out the paper to print. There are so many to choose from.

The kit she sent me to use is call "Sweetie Pie" and will soon be available on her site. It comes with a bunch of wonderful saying. All I had to do to mine was decide what size to print them out at and then cut them out.


I hope you'll stop by Making Handmade Cards and check out they have to offer!!

Magnolia-licious Cards....

I'm running behind on sending out my Magnolia-licious cards this month. Four lucky ladies are being rained on. I actually already mailed these on Tuesday. So I'm hoping they already received them. But if not oh well...

I also got to use a couple of my new Martha Stewart punches I made my husband drive me to go get on Sunday. I searched all over online Sunday morning trying to find these babies but couldn't find any. Unless you shop on Ebay for twice the amount. (that's ridiculous) So I finally called the local Michaels even though I was there last weekend. It's an hour drive to get there. To see if they had them in. YES!!! So my poor husband said he'd drive with me over there again. I got the last ones. Score!!

They really need to carry more. I still need to find one more of the Valentine Lace Edge ones for my friend. I'm not willing to give mine up.. :) What a terrible friend I am!! So I'll stop in the big city this weekend on my way to coding class for the week and see if I can find her one there. If not... :(
