I finished scrapbooking Calvin's hunting pictures, still have to catch up the rest of my scrapbooking, I have spent part of yesterday and this morning tryin to come up some samples of wedding invites for someone, finally got them done and email her pictures, I hope she likes them, but I will wait and see. I picked up some Gamsol yesterday to use for when coloring with coloring pencils, it is some cool stuff, I had not used it before and it another one of those neat little tricks I learned from EJ. It is an odorless mineral sprit. So I will have to post some cards that I use it on.

I have gotton some cards done, The first is a birthday card for Calvin's boss, it is all CTMH products.

Products used were Sarsparilla paper pack, twill ribbon stamped with bobwire from My Farm My Acylix stamp set the chicken is also from this set.

This next card I made for Ginger E, just thought she needed a little smile the other day. Used Sunny Yellow paper pk and the stamp is from stampin up, it is one that I played with at EJ's and just stamped a few on white cardstock and bought them home, I sponged around the edges .

This last card I made for one of the nurses that I work with, she made employee of the month.
I used all CTMH products for this one, the paper is Petal and Kiwi, the buttons are from the spring collection. The little black dragonfly is a little punch I picked up somewhere, and I used my Cricut and Cuttlebug, i put 3 small sliver rhinestones on the dragonfly.

Thanks for looking.

So I am waiting for the Daytona 500, it is my favorite race of the year, it gets everybody going.
So while waiting I have been playin with butterfly stamps to see which would work best for the embossing and coloring, I finally found one that I like best and worked really good, it is the butterfly from Close to my Heart's stamp of the month for March. So here is the card I came up with.

The items used are all Close to my heart except the little bonbons that EJ gave me. They go very well with the Creme Brulee.
Creme Brulee CS
Sorbet exclusive ink
CTMH embossing powder White Daisy
CTMH Markers Honey, Orange, Sunny Yellow
CTMH Creme brulee ribbon rounds.
The sentiment is from the Ms. Gardener stamp set
I am now ready for the race to come on.

EJ's card workshop

So went to EJ's this afternoon for her card workshop and we made 5 cards and a really cute little box, I don't have a picture of my 5th card here because I am not done with it yet, I will post it later. I really enjoy going to EJ's for one thing she has lots of cool stuff and if there is something that you want to try but are afraid to buy, if she has it she will let you try it, and she has stamps galore, from all different kinds of companies, which is really cool, but most of all I like going because EJ is a cool lady and when you go to her house you can relax, talk and make new friends.
EJ if you read this Thank you and I will see you soon. So we learned new things today for these cards, I got to learn about a couple of new products.

But most of all after having a really stressed week I got to have a good relaxing time. I think the 2 cards in the bottom picture were my favs.

todays cards

These are cards I have been working on today the first one I got the idea from one of the CTMH ladies but I forgot to jot her name down, she did one in bright colors, I wanted the chocolate and hollyhock colors for valentines day, the are puzzle pieces that I colored with CTMH markers. I like the way it turned out. The writing says LOVE YOU TO PIECES.

This one uses the Heartthrob D1309 My Acrylix stamp set, hollyhock and chocolate papers and hollyhock inks. MS punch for the border.

and this one the idea came from SCS idea board, I didn't write down the name of this one because there were so many different versions of it, but here is mine. Used all CTMH papers.
Stamp sets are D1245 In my Heart, D1194 All my love chocolate ribbon, the only thing not CTMH is the little pink hearts in the corners. I used my cricut for the envelope and some of the hearts the rest were stamped and cut out and pop dotted on the card.

hope you like them.

these are a couple of cards I did recently, the first one was a thank you card for Beverly, she let me take her metallic pencils home to play with so I made the card for her, The stamp set is CTMH's Ms. Gardener D1344, I have more fun with this set.

Another great set to use is D1336 Cupcake sprinkles, I have made several birthday cards with this one. The design on these cards is from the current Idea Book. I used brads for the sprinkles on the first one and Liquid applique and glitter on the second one for icing.

Hope you enjoy these.
