I'm in Stitches!!!



Here are a couple of cards that I am REALLY happy with! You know how sometimes you finish a project and just go, 'Ewwwwww...I LOVE that!'? Isn't it great when that happens?? Well, that happened to me with these two cards!

Lately I've been stamping up extra images when I stamp and I've been trying to create more than one card at a time when I am crafting. Instead of making a single design, I try to use the same images and patterned paper to either duplicate the card or make one similar using the same items.

On Monday night, one of my favourite shows is on....Dancing with the Stars. It was on for two whole hours which is great but I hate to feel like I am wasting time in front of the tv. Guess I should somehow try to squeeze a tv into my stampin' studio, huh?? Anyway, I decided to colour some images while I was watching the telly, so I brought my Copic markers Carousel downstairs, picked out a couple of pieces of patterned paper as inspiration and my stamped images. I chose some coordinating markers and coloured two Farmer Tildas in using the same colours. I also coloured several other images too....I mean, I did have two hours!!!



Anyway, when I came back upstairs to start creating, I already had the image coloured and the patterned paper picked out so I just had to design the layout and add embellishments! The dp is from the DCWV Nana's Nursery Baby Boy Stack (try saying that three times fast!) and the cardstock I used is Cool Caribbean and Apricot Appeal. Don't they look soft and pretty together?? The ribbon is from American Crafts, the Primas are Press N Petals and the glitter brads are from Making Memories. I cut out the little tags using my Cuttlebug and added the sentiments which are from Papertrey. The Tilda and Co. Challenge for this week is to use stitching on your Magnolia card, so I added it around the edge of the card base using my Mat Pack and my white gel pen and then I also added some highlights on Tilda and popped her up!

Well, yesterday as you know, I went stamp shopping with my friend Donna. We had a great time and made lots of stops! First we went to the big scrappin' clearance sale here in St. Thomas and stopped at the Cut 'n Paste. Then we went over to London and spent a few $$ in Michael's, using our coupons of course! We went all the way across town to Scrapbook Studio and I picked up some yummy new papers and our last stop (which is where I spent most of my $$) was at Stamp Art!!! I grabbed up one of each of the new Penny Black transparent sets!! Lots of hedgies and puppies and mice!! Eeek! I always have so much fun when I visit Nancy and Dianne and Janine in Stamp Art!! Hi girls!! *wave* After we were done shopping, Donna took me out for lunch!! We went to East Side Mario's and had some yummy pasta!! Mmmm! Thanks again Donna! We'll have to do it again, next time we have the same day off!!

OH!! And I forgot to mention to anyone in Southwestern Ontario, my friend Phebe at The Town Scrapper is going to be at Scrapfest in Kitchener!!! If you are out and about this afternoon, be sure to stop in and check out the Marketplace, with over 35 vendors!! Wish I could go!!

Have a wonderful weekend and I hope you can carve out some time to get inky!!!

Great cards! Which Cuttlebug die did you use for the tags? I need to make some small tags like the one on your cards but can't find this small sized tag.

Hi Kimmie: First off, I love your cards today and secondly WOW...I seen your cards today, the real deal at Phoebe's booth. Amazing. I met her and her husband too and what a super nice couple. She was so nice to chat with and I told her how much I enjoyed your blog. She has found a customer in me and I will be out there the first week of July on a shopping spree.

P.S. your excursion to Pheobe's store and Actor's are a great read.

Have a super Sunday.
