My dilemma...

My step-son turns 17 today, and I did not want to go buy a store bought card. My dilemma is, I don't have a lot of "masculine" stamps, & especially very little to pick from as far as "masculine teenage boy" stamps. This is what I ended up with....I hope he likes it. I know most men aren't too much into cards anyway, so I didn't want to make it too elaborate & time consuming.

Card info: Note Card by Memory Box, White Card stock by Georgia Pacific, Light Blue, Dk. Brown & Kraft Card Stock unknown, Ink VersaMagic Mango & Ancient Page Chocolate, Art Institute Glitter, Quickie Glue Pen, Derwent Watercolor Pencils, Image & Sentiment by A Muse Artstamps.

Latte Love For The Cat's Pajamas

If you are looking for some swanky stamps...then run on over to The Cat's Pajamas website & check them out. Alma is super sweet, and has always answered questions quickly I've had for her!! They have a new release coming out August 31st & I can hardly wait. I'm "in love" with "Skating Sprinkle". So Karrie is having lots of fun over on her blog, and that is what I made this card for. About half of what I own in Cat's Pajamas stamps are sentiments, I definitely need more image stamps (long wish list!!), and the one I used in this card is one of the great coffee sentiments stamps offered by The Cat's Pajamas. I am a big fan of coffee :) !!

Card info: Card Stock unknown, White Card Stock is Georgia Pacific, Ink is Stampin Up Chocolate Chip, Ribbon is from Michael's, Image stamp is A Muse Artstamps, and Sentiment stamp is The Cat's Pajama's.

Hello?? Just Wanted To Say.....

Karrie, the newest DT member over at The Cat's Pajama's is having a fun countdown over on her blog to the latest release of The Cat's Pajama's stamps. She is so much fun & very talented and if you haven't checked out her blog you really need to!! So I thought I was going to have more time this week for this, but the date was moved up, so I'm trying to whip out some quick & simple cards. I absolutely LOVE The Cat's Pajama's stamps, and would love to get the chance for a NEW SET!!

How I display ATC's

During AP, I started participating in ATC swaps for the first time. I soon found out how fun they were & joined many more groups. I found a fun way to display and share with others all of the FABULOUS ATC's I received. I found these great sleeves that have 9 individual pockets, each the perfect size for holding an ATC. As you can see in the picture, they have the rings on the side to fit into a photo album or binder. I am still looking for the perfect one to purchase. If anyone is interested in purchasing these empty sleeves from me, feel free to contact me.

*Added 8-26-07* I found a simple black canvas album yesterday on a shopping trip, so it now displays all the fun ATC's swaps I have participated in.

More Fun Mail

OK, so I didn't feel like I ordered enough on my first A Muse order, so I placed another. Yes, I think I have a serious A Muse addiction!! Here's a pic of my of my latest goodies.

Thought I would share my fun mail with all of you. This past Friday, my fun prize from the Memory Box contest arrived. We left to travel out of state that same day for the weekend, so I haven't been able to share until now. I want to say a big thank you to KRISTY & to Memory Box!! I am going to have so much fun with these!!

OK, then today, my fun goodies from my A Muse order came. I took advantage of the free shipping offer they had going for orders over $50.00. Of course, you can never have too many A Muse stamps. May have to order some more things soon!! My wish list is sooooo long! I'm sure you can all relate.
