Did you notice

that I was MIA for a few days? Well, almost 1 week to be exact. I am sorry about that but I have not been feeling to well and was forced to put stamping on the back burner for a few days. But, I am still here, not like I wish to be, but I am here :D:D:D.

I have two cards for you all today. The first one is one that I made for the CAS challenge over at SCS. We were to use punches, well, I did just that. I have been wanting to this for a while now, so this challenge was the perfect opportunity for me to put that thought onto paper so to speak.

To stay within the guidelines of keeping it clean and simple I just ran some paper through my Cuttlebug in the "Leafy Branch" folder (love that one!!!) and for the punch part, well, that is nothing other that the SU scalloped circle punch and some SU Chocolate Chip CS which I then cut into flower petals, curled the ends over my stylus and added a button for the flower center.

Easy as 123 and as promised, CAS!!!!!


Paper: SU Chocolate Chip, Basic Grey (can't remember the name of the pad, since I tore that paper out a while back, sorry!)

Ink: SU Chocolate Chip

Stamp: SU Thank you kindly

Accessories: button from WalMart Grab Bag, SU scallop circle punch, scissors, stylus to curl the petals, Cuttlebug and leafy branch embossing folder

Yep, that is it for this one. The next one is a card I made just to blow off some steam for a few minutes the other day ;P.

Plus, I got to use some of those crochet flowers I have been making while watching a few minutes of TV. I think I am getting the hang of it and don't even have to watch what I am doing anymore. While I waited for my DD at school this afternoon I made 5 of these babies, not bad, if I may say so myself, LOL!

But here is the card. I took the picture outside and let me tell you, we have some serious winds here today. So my pics are not the best, sorry!!

"Thinking of You"


Paper: PTI white, basic Grey Eva DP, SU Certainly Celery

Ink: SU Mellow Moss

Stamp: Inkadinkado Occasion Set I bought last year at Costco

Accessories: Nesties Classic Scallop Circles Small, hand crocheted flowers, spacer bead in silver, crystal brad, Cuttlebug and "Stylized Flowers" embossing folder, pink grosgrain ribbon, fun fibers, dimensionals

Pretty simple card, again, sorry!!!! Please keep me in your prayers about these headaches. I am not claiming them as my headaches, because they are not. I refuse to do so. So this is why I say about "THESE" headaches ;P.

Thanks for stopping by my friends. I hope to be back on a more regular basis soon.
