Now those of you who know me know that I think in pink! I love pink flowers, pink shirts, pink flamingos, well let's keep this short and just say I love anything pink. When my co-worker approached me to make a sweet 16 birthday card, I naturally said , sure I can do it, you want it to be pink right? After a minutes hesitation, she said, "actually, I was wanting it to be purple". My heart fell down to my knees, sweat was popping up in all the wrong places, I swallowed hard and squeaked, sure, when do you need it by? Can you have it by Monday 9/27 she asked? Sure, I said and wandered off. How do you make a special moment card and it not be PINK! That was on Thursday, I thought purple, and I thought, more purple.....finally, I was out of time! I just had to make this special card in purple.... after much purple procrastination here it is!

Today has been one of those fun fabulous Stampin' Days! A couple of my friends dropped by to stamp and hang out! It was so much fun! Here are my 2 favorite cards from today.
The 1st card is made using the stamp set Autumn Slendor (#116503) using the Rock and Roll technique, more mustard card stock (#100946), textured river rock card stock(#119944), whisper white cardstock (#100730), ink pads, peach parfait, crumb cake and poppy parade.
The Christmas card is made with the stamp set Bells & Boughs (pg 19 of the Holiday mini # 121142) using the Vintage Wallpaper texture plate (#120175) with wild wasabi card stock with the 5/8" Real Red Grosgrain Ribbon (#109052) and wild wasabi stamp pad , real red ink pad, and the pear pizzazz ink pad with blender pens. The final touch was made using Multipurpose liquid glue (#110755) with Dazzling Diamonds (a girls' best friend #102023) Glitter.
Please contact me if you have any questions about these super fun cards.
Sharing what I love,

Here's a card from my water color class last night. We had a very relaxing time aqua painting this card with some fall colors ( it is still in the 90's here, but surely fall is coming soon).
We ran watercolor paper (#105019) thru the big shot with the Manhattan flower embossing folder(#114517).
Then colored it with aqua painters (#103954) and reinkers Daffodil Delight and Tango Tangerine. To put this card together, we mounted the water color paper on Tangerine Tango card stock and mounted that on a card base of Daffodil Delight.
This card looks hard but this was super easy. I heard someone say "I'm keeping this card for myself".

Wow, my friend Veronica is really sick with a nasty cold. She recently hosted a Stampin' Up party and got 2 hostess sets and $65 in free merchandise from her party. Her big box of goodies arrived a few days ago and she didn't even have the energy to open it. Oh my goodness, how could this happen to such a nice talented person as Veronica? Knowing how much she loved Stampin' Up, I was sure she wasn't going to make it, since that box of really cool, neato SU stuff was unopened. I jumped in my little VW bug, went to the store bought several different kinds of juice/Gatorade and went over to make sure it wasn't so.....yep there she was a box of unopened free stuff, and looking kinda sickly...well, I gave her lots of fluids, opened up that box of FREE stuff and then it happened.....she seemed to feel better. I'm sure it was my imagination, but when I left she was fondling one of her many free stamp sets and smiling. Can't wait for her to get well so "we"(as in me and her) can play with her new toys. When I got home I was inspired to make these Get Well Cards! Now, to decide which one to send her. Get Well Veronica!
