Busy, Busy, Busy

Sorry I have had a lot going on the last few days! The stamping get together I went to this weekend in Okemos, MI was great. I have a workshop on Friday night I have nothing ready for.

Cindy - you commented on my last post asking if the SS kits were still available. Yes they are. I don't know how to contact you. Email me if you are still interested in them

I'll have to check in later and share some cards.

I need more light

I'm noticing I need to take my pics in better light. They seem kind of dark.

At any rate, here are a couple more of my DKOS #10 swaps. Here are the "rules" we had to follow for this one:

Looks Like Spring 2 - Kraft base, with Buckaroo blue, Cranberry Crisp and vanilla layers. Accent with brads or hardware, and twine or hemp.

And this one:
Designer Paper/Punch - Use any SU colored card base, add at least one of the current designer papers and use 2 different punches on your card. At least one embellishment.

Different Kind Of Swap

The next few cards I will share are from a swap I participate in on SCS. It's called Different Kind of Swap (DKOS) because we all start out with the same items and then add our own creativity from there. It is really interesting to see all the different ideas that come back starting from the same ingredients.

For this 1st one we had to use Chocolate Chip for the card base, Certainly Celery, Pixie Pink and Whisper White.

We had to use at least three stamps from the Polka Dots & Paisley set, add an embellishment and use the crimper.

For this one the card base is any neutral of your choice. Layers of soft subtles and rich regals card stock. Use wheels only, standard or jumbo, and words are permitted. Embellish away.

LMAO about Glitter Herpes!

Oh my goodness! There was a thread on SCS today about glitter herpes. Glitter is the herpes of craft supplies or something. It is so true. I don't use it often because it gets everywhere. Yes, it's pretty, but I don't want it on me and everything else. I don't want to spread it to everyone I send a card to. I tried Heat N Stick with it and it helps, but I still get a little coming off. Or if you mix it with clear embossing powder or use the Iridescent Ice or Hologram Highlights it just doesn't have quite the same effect. So I was laughing so hard and wanted to share some of the funny stories from that thread here.

A woman had a gyno appointment and wanted to "freshen up" before the
appointment so she grabbed a washcloth off the sink, did a quick pass and headed
off to her doc's office. The doc proceeded to do the exam and said "Boy, someone
has taken some extra special care of things". The woman wondered what he meant
but didn't think about it again until later that night when her daughter asked
her what happened to the washcloth full of glitter that had been on the bathroom

Can you imagine?!?! That doctor must've thought she was a nut.

A couple of So Very's

Here are a couple of So Very cards. These were also made for that exchange I was in. I think these are the last of those cards that I will share. Then I shall move on to something else.

I really enjoy browsing other people's blogs. I am amazed at the wonderful ideas people have out there. And then of course I come across other things I need to buy! I won't be able to buy anything in a little while unless I can find a way to make my creativity work for me. I pretty much told my boss I didn't think I could continue to work. It's just not making sense financially. My hubby and I are going to sit down this weekend and weigh my options. One thing I fear of staying home and relying on him for all the cash is that I won't be able to buy stuff I want any more! I need to come up with a way to make some spending money...
