I love Saturdays

If you work 9-5 m-f, I think Saturdays are the best day! I cherish my Staurdays. When I was little I think I liked Saturdays because I knew I still had another off day before I had to go back to school. I always played sports in school and our games were always on Saturdays. Of course the games are the best part, not the practicing! Enough about my Saturdays! Anyways here is a card I created. Another Thank You, imagine that! I thought this card was fun. I used SU's Very Vanilla for the base and Almost Amethyst as the first layer. I used a scarp piece of paper with dots for the second layer. I then used a ribbon, not sure what kind, around the bottom of the second layer. It just happened to cordinate with the dotted paper. I stamped the dotted paper with my 7gyspies pre-inked stamper. Then I punched out a tag and stamped thank you on it and connected it with a velvet brad. Voila!

Addicted to shopping?!?!

I think a lot of people can relate. Shopping for scrapbook/stamping supplies is one of the best parts. On Joani's blog I saw something that I just had to have! It's called the Hillbilly Hanger. She and her husband built this. Check out her blog by clicking above on Cards made by Hand, to see how to buy one and the story behind it. I just got mine and love it! I'm trying to get more organized this year and this will definitely help me. My internet keeps go in and out so I will end this post. Maybe that is a sign to go shopping!

My Thank You card

Ok...this is the last post for the day. This is a Thank You card that I made and actually loved! I used SU's Whisper White for the base and Very Vanilla for the first layer. I'm not sure where I got the pattern paper because I pulled it from my scrap pile. I used my SU! very vanilla in my tag punch and stamped thank you. I then used a Grand Adhesion sticker on the paper where a flower would be and bam! There is a thank you card!

My new (stamp room) addition!

I bought this after my friend Hidee bought one and loved it. We got it at Michael's and it's made by Making Memories. I think it is so cute. I love being able to put my stamps where I can see them.

I am so excited!

Ok it's only taken me about two weeks and I am back posting! With blogging it's definitely trial an error! A little while ago my whole blog was I Chinese. I am posting a pic of two cards that two very dear friends sent me. One is from Hidee. The picture doesn not do the card justice! The card on the left is from Hidee. I know she used Stampin' Up cardstock. It's hard to see the glitter but in person it really shines. The card on the right is from Kay. This woman has so much talent it's unbelievable! I'm not sure what she used to create this card but I know she loves Stampin' Up. These two creators give me so much inspiration! Thank you!

As soon as I learn how to post pictures with individual posts I will show you some of my creations. I bet you can't wait!! Now I am going to go back to the drawing board and see what else I can do. :)
