Yeah, I did get to create.....

even it it was two simple ones, LOL!

I am still working on some projects for and this first one right here

Just for you

is one that was a little challenging for me. I love the image, those bushes are so peaceful, but they are not tall at all (about 2") and I was trying to figure out what to do with the empty space. I think I threw like 3 or 4 cards in the trash because nothing seemed right until I had this EUREKA moment, LOL!. For some reason this is my go to embossing folder and it looks good with a lot of images, so I pulled out my Cuttlebug and got my trusty "Bird Call" folder and went to town, well in the bushes :D:D:D. I did not want to add too much, and I think that adding those small scalloped ovals and a few other things (you all know I just had to add a pin, it would not be me if there was no pin, right?????). So, my friends, what do you think, does it work?


Paper: PTI white, the moss colored cs is from and is made from recycled paper. It is not very thick, but works great if used as a mat.

Stamps: Flair of Summer I from ISC for the bushes and the "Just for you"

Ink: SU Mellow Moss

Accessories: Cuttlebug embossing folder Bird Call, Primas, gem brad, Nesties petite scalloped ovals, white sheer ribbon, handmade stick pin with glass beads.

The second one I called

You're special


Paper: PTI white, and the same moss colored recycled paper cs from

Stamps:ISC Summer Elements III for the Sunflower image and the sentiment "You're special".

Ink: Chalk Box Yellow Cadmium, Chestnut Roan

SU Mellow Moss

Accessories: distressing tool, SU oval punch

Wow, this card is kind of naked is you look at other cards I make, isn't it? But guess what? I like it. The sunflower image does not need anything else. To achieve the look on that sunflower I used my Chalk Box inks again. I like using them because the cat eyes make it super easy to get even small areas of the image. Like I have said, it is not the typical Sabrina kind of card, but I like the way it turned out.

Ok, y'all, my hubby just walked in the house and I have not cook supper yet {I guess I am the one in the dog house tonight (rolls eyes!!!!)}.

Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope to be back possibly tomorrow ;P.

Sabrina these are amazing!!! Wow, wow, wow! I love how you extended the bushes on your first card with your embossing folder! That is such a great idea and so, so elegant! Never would have thought of that! And your second card does not look naked at all! I love the distressed feel to it and the warmth that i emminates!

LOVE that first one with the embossing behind the stamp. And the distressed edges on the second one add just the right texture. Your work is always gorgeous!!

Hope you're out of the dog house soon :)

I love the Just for you card. Fabulous! Did you stamp your image before or after you put it through the cuttlebug? It's so perfect.
