Well tomorrow is the big day over at artful INKables. The release of 5 new sets. They are just fantastic. I can't wait till everyone gets to see them. They are the kind of sets you think I have to have them all!!! This card was done for the Try a new Technique over at SCS. We were to use chalks and versa mark ink to make the background as well as the main picture. Lots of fun you should go over and give it a try. The sentiment on this card was using the Basic Salutations set from artful INKables. Kristin the owner and designer has such wonderful talent. I will be back later to update all the other materials. I am heading for bed, I worked again last night and work tonight. Then I am off for awhile and can't wait to play with all the new stamps at artful INKables.

I just thought this bird was too cute. She just looks as if she is sticking her hip out and saying "Hey Sexy". So this sentiment from MFT, I thought worked great.
The bird is from Stamps by Judith. I just love the look this little girl gives you.
The paper is from scraps so I really don't know the company. I do know they are not SU. The flowers are prima, the glitter is stickles, oh and the ribbon. That is what I used to design my colors from, isn't is fun.
Well I am heading off to sleep. See you in the morning. Wall-e comes out tomorrow and my Daughter is bouncing off the walls. I will let you know how it is.
I am so excited!!! I was selected to be on the design team for Artful INKables. I just absolutely love her stamps. Have you seen them? If not be careful because once you go take a look if you are like me, you need them all. Not want I NEED them all.
She said she had over a hundred entries and I just can't believe she chose me.
So thank you again Kristin from Artful INKables. I can't wait to get started. Oh and guess what she has some brand new sets coming out. I have not even seen them yet. So come and check out this blog to get a sneak peek.
Have a wonderful day, I know I am.

Well I started this card yesterday night then went to bed. It was made for the color challenge over at SCS.
Colors are Stampin Up Taken with Teal, Whisper White and Wild Wasabi. I will miss Wild Wasabi when it retires in August. Anyway I would of never put these colors together by myself. But I do have to say I really like them allot. The Stamp is from Inkadinkado. What a fun stamp.
Maybe I should quit my job and just stamp all the time. My children and husband may not like it but well I may get some of my sanity back.
When I was taken the picture of the card I decided to use two different color backgrounds and wow what a difference it made. Let me know which one you like the best.
Hey have a great night and see you in the morning.
Well I will share it with you when I can. I'm a little tired right now. I worked last night and thought I would come and update my blog just a bit. Well there is something amiss. One of my gallery links did not work so I went to investigate and well all my stuff is gone. hmmmm. I was once on their design team and now all is gone, not even a smidge of me being there. I know I am tired but this is weird. I will spend time later to investigate but now too tired.

What a fun day it was yesterday. My sister came down from northern Missouri and my nieces and nephews came over to help celebrate her birthday. I won't tell you how old she is just that I am 10 years younger. LOL. Well todays challenge over at Splitcoaststampers was to use your re inkers. That was allot of fun. I actually do use them quiet ofter.
In this card I used two new stamp sets I bought, yes even with all that I have I buy more. The bird is from (io) Victorian Bird, isn't she adorable!! The sentiment is from a set I have been wanting for along time. (my favorite things) Time for the Bubbly. I used Stampin Up re inkers of creamy caramel and Pink Passion. My Paper is also from Stampin up Whisper White and Pink Passion. I stamped the bird three times so I could give the card dimension by cutting out the body and one of her wings. I also used stickles on her eye to give it just a bit of sparkle. I kinda like this card. Now just who do I give it to. My problem is I make these things and never send them just give them to someone else to mail. Well let me know what you think.
Hugs to all
