A whole week...



A whole week between stamping sessions...man these 10 hours days are grueling sometimes...but I chose not to work yesterday and get all my errands done so that I could play today...Here is what I have come up with so far...I used the ColorQ challenge as a jumping off point again...I really like the color combos they choose and it give me someplace to start...Here is the color combo for this week...

And here is my fabulous creation...using some of the new things that I received on Friday from SU!

I had a bit of a difficult time with the color combo...but I FINALLY hit on something that I liked...

Here is a closer look at the details...

WOW...What a week...



Well...it's Sunday and I haven't gotten a chance to stamp since Wednesday...until today...I have been working 10 hour days at work and then Thurs & Fri night once I was off...I had other errands and we didn't get home until almost 10...and that is my bedtime...I even worked from 6am until noon yesterday...and then got home at 12:15 to meet Momma so we could go and pick up a desk she bought...of course we had to do a bit of shopping before we picked it up...I bought some really cute antique stuff...that I can't wait to put around the house...then we loaded up her desk and took it to her house...did I say that the place she bought the desk at is an hour from my house and an hour from her house...so it made a nice 3 hour triangle with shopping in the middle...so we didn't get back to my house until about 8:30...then we chatted a bit more and she was off...and so was I...OFF TO BED that is...but I woke up all refreshed this morning and happy to be able to play in my studio...

So this is what I came up with for this weeks ColorQ challenge...here are the colors we used...


 My card....Hope you come back and see what else I have made soon!

Yes...I used the Betsy's Blossom set again...it is one of the only stamp sets I have from the NEW catalog...and I made my FIRST EVER double bow...now I need some new ribbon...as most of the ribbon I had has retired...need to place an order...BADLY...Here is a closer look at the details...

It seemed like a FOREVER day....

Today...it seemed to take forever...maybe because I was at work and I REALLY just wanted to be playing around in the Studio...I REALLY miss being able to stamp all day...I need to play the lottery for the first time ever...so I can win MILLIONS...and just be able to play all day again...maybe someday that will happen....Naaaa...who am I kiddin'...The reason i don't play the lottery is because I KNOW it is just throwing your money away...stampin' money...ANYWAY...I know ya'll don't come here to read all my chatter...so I will throw you a bone and give you something pretty to look at...I made this today when I got home and after dinner...YEP...dinner was waiting on the table for me tonight too...but this time it was Reilly's turn to fix it...after eating...I got down to business...I stamped...and I think it turned out REALLY CUTE...yes...another really cute card from me...

Another using the new Betsy's Blossoms stamp set

Here is a close up of the little birdy and the leaves that I accented with the Gumball Green Marker.

Feel Better Soon!!

Well...got home from work today and guess what was waiting for me in my Stamp Studio...my July Stampin' Success and the NEW HOLIDAY Seasonal Catalog...I waited patiently to open it as Colleen had dinner on the table...but once dinner was over...I came in and called my Momma first thing...you see we have a ritual...when ever the new catalog or minis come out...we call each other and peruse it together over the phone...hashing out what we like...don't like...HAVE to HAVE...so I got through and then HAD TO WAIT some more...she had company and made me wait...so a bit later she called and we perused the new Seasonal Catalog together...can't wait to order out of it...but it is gonna have to wait as I haven't even ordered anything out of the new catalog yet...but SOON...I will be placing my order...REALLY SOON...then I got the hankerin' to stamp...so this is what I made...I made it for my daughter Kaitlyn...she is stationed in England...I just dropped her off at the airport this last Saturday to go back...she had been home on leave for two weeks...and as soon as she got back...she got SICK...so I know this wouldn't get to her...before she started to feel better...so I am sending it to her electronically...just like this...so KAITLYN...THIS IS FOR YOU...and I hope you FEEL BETTER SOON!

Here it is...I think it turned out REALLY cute!
