SC204 Swirly Tree

Today's Sketch is awesome. It' so versatile. I love this set called Snow Swirled. The only problem I have is that I have such a hard time picking out a a tree topper for this tree. This was the best option of them all today. Thanks for stopping by today. Happy Thanksgiving to all!

CC194 Really Going Vanilla

Can you believe Jen wanted to sell this stamp set??? SO glad she let me have (borrow) it! This is my Fall / Thanksgiving card. The colors to use today are Really Rust, Very Vanilla and Going Grey. Can you see the grey??? There really is some on here. It was tough to get it on there, but it's there.

Chocolate Party!

Today's Limited Supplies Challenge: Chocolate Theme. Must use chocolate paper and ink somewhere on the project. I chose a cupcake birthday theme. Stampin' Up!'s Chocolate Chip is currently my favorite color. It goes with just about all the other colors. Thanks for peeking into my BLOG today! Have a great weekend!

Shuttle 11-14-08

Look! It's the Space Shuttle. This is the view from my back yard. It was a BEAUTIFUL launch! This picture doesn't do it justice at all! My parents were both raised here in this area, and after my father retired from the Army, we moved back. I have been living here for 19 years and I still try and watch every shuttle launch. They amaze me. I hope our new President keeps our space program running.

Loving Skaters

Isn't this Fun? Today I was to use Kraft, Black and Red as my main colors. This is a two- way open card. The bottom gate panel opens out and then, the inner tree panel opens up. I have seen other stampers use the Trees as a background and that inspired this card today. The iced pond is made out of glitter blended in Crystal Effects. My lady is glittered up too! Thanks for taking a peek today. Enjoy!

More Pocket Silhouettes

Have I mentioned this is one of my favorite stamps and this is one of my favorite color combinations? I actually started out with Kraft and Sahara Sand this morning. Somehow Artichoke took over. And I really like the results.

The World

Another Challenge at is the Color Challenge. Today's colors are Pacific Point, Basic Grey and Certainly Celery. This is an awesome combination! My first thought was of the ocean, so I used a World Map stamp. I can totally see myself using this combo again. I think it would be very pretty for something with flowers! Thanks for stopping by!

Special Guests!

So our Special Guest was Marilyn Monroe! Thank goodness the Captain was there in case the party got out of hand, especially since that Russian Sailor did show up! The Firefighter kept his eye out for safety violations! There wasn't any!

More guests!

Celebrate LSC193

Ok now! Can I toot my own horn and say I REALLY love this card! It was really easy, too! I inherited more of this Designer Paper .. Fall Flowers.. from Jen, so I decided that since I have more and I really like it, too, I might as well use it. What good is it doing hanging around in my file? So here it is!
Anyway, this is for SCS Limited Supplies challenge. A list of supplies is given and I must make a card / project within the boundaries. Today's called for a rectangle and a circle and the only embellishment I could use is ribbon! What do you think?

Halloween Portrait!

October 31st was not really a great day.... in my mind. Nothing seemed to go right. This is us, in our Halloween costumes looking Ok in an Ok photo. One kid was crying, the other wasn't fully costumed, too much forehead on Marilyn... We WILL be doing re-takes!
