Starbucks, Meet A Muse

Happy Friday!! I have a fun day planned of lunch and shopping with one of my gal pals, I just wish she stamped :). It is supposed to be VERY HOT here this weekend, mid to high 90's. That is a little too hot for my taste. I'm sharing a card today I made for one of the VERY special ladies over at the A Muse group. I had a lot of fun making this card for Jennie for her birthday. She is a big fan of coffee, as am I, & I've been spinning the idea around in my head of making a card resembling a "to go" coffee cup, & this is what I came up with. Hopefully is some what resembles that to you as well. Before I was finished with the card, I asked DH if he could tell what it was and he said "popcorn?". I was thinking, "great", "my coffee cup looks like a tub of popcorn???". Anyhow, I went with it anyway, and hopefully Jennie knew what it was when she opened her card :) I thought I could use the A Muse "Mermaid" image as an A Muse version of the "Starbucks" logo. I wanted to get all of her hair (mermaid) & after I punched her out, I noticed she then has one elongated arm, but just decided to go with it anyway. The brown sleeve is an actual sleeve I specifically grabbed to use for this card. The note card, images, sentiments, and twinkle stickers are all by A Muse Artstamps. I colored the mermaid with my Copics & Spica Glitter pens, but the sparkle doesn't show in the photo. I hope you have a pleasant Friday & a great weekend!! Thanks for stopping by ;)

Quick & Easy Baby Card

Hi all! Happy Thursday to you!! The weather is absolutely BEAUTIFUL here today. I hope it is where you are at too :) This is a super quick card that I whipped up for a friend at who is having a baby girl soon. This accompanied her baby gift. I must say, it's so fun shopping for cute little girly things. I had fun making this since I don't get to pull out my "baby" themed stamps very often. I used several different stamp companies on this card. I will leave the details for you below. I used my clear spica glitter pen over all of the images, but again it doesn't show up in the photo. It is very sparkly IRL. Sorry the lighting is not the best. I'm off to enjoy the sunshine! Wishing you a happy day :) Card info: GP White Cardstock; Misc. Solid Cardstock; DP by Memory Box; Images by Impress, Rubber Soul & A Muse Artstamps; Ink by Stampin' Up; Clear Spica Glitter Pen; Ticket Corner Punch by Stampin' Up; Marvy Scallop Square Punch; Micro Dot Twinkle Stickers by A Muse Artstamps.

Drumroll Please.........

Thank you for all of your sweet comments on my blog candy post! I have really enjoyed this first year of blogging and have met many amazing women & have created some great friendships! All of you is what makes blogging fun for me. I used to pick 3 random winners, and here they are:


Susan N. (aka. Curtis) (Susan N.'s blogger profile showed up as her husbands name, I deleted her post where she clarified this)


CONGRATS ladies!! Please e-mail me your snail mail and I will get these in the mail to you ASAP!! You can find my e-mail in "my profile" on my sidebar!! Have a great evening :)

ETA: Tinla was gracious enough to let me know that she already has all 3 of these stamps, so Tinla will still be getting the Sugar paper pack, but she wanted me to send her stamp to somebody else (Isn't she SWEET!!) so I used to pick another winner for the stamp only and that person is:


Congrats Estivalia!! Please send me your snail mail address, and I will get your stamp in the mail to you ASAP :)

Yeah....Blog Candy Baby!!

Hi everyone!! Sorry I haven't been posting much lately, we have had A LOT of "stuff" going on around here and I haven't been doing ANY stamping. Needless to say, I haven't been spending that much time of the computer either. So with nothing to share, how about some blog candy instead? In honor of my 1 year of blogging, I thought it would be fun to have a little celebration and give away some blog candy!! I appreciate each and every one of you that stop by & leave comments. You always brighten my day! So now it's my turn to give back to you!! All you have to do is leave me a comment on this post. In your comment, please let me know which of these stamps you would like most, that's all you have to do. I have 3 to give away, so if your name is drawn, I would like to send you the stamp of your choice (all stamps are by Memory Box) or a stamp that you don't already have. If you don't have a preference, let me know that too. With each stamp, you will also get a pack of Memory Box Sugar 6x6 cardstock which is such a fun paper pack!! You have until 7 PM (PST) Wednesday (June 18th) to leave your comment at which time I will pick three random winners. I hope everyone is enjoying their weekend so far!!
