More SCS Challenges

Card #1 was for SCS Wednesday sketch challenge! It has the cutest heart stamp on the BG but it is hard to see in the photo
Card #2 was also made for SCS weekly sketch challenge. It used SU Best Border stamp which has not seen ink in years! I don't know why because I love the image!
Card #3 was made for the SC ways to use it challenge. You had to incorporate the use of staple in the design. I tried to come up with a new method for using them but alas the babies woke too early so I had to stick with a tried and true measure of attaching the ribbon with the staples.
This is also the same set used in the card above, just cut with the punches.

Thanks for looking Happy Thursday!

SCS Color Challenge! YO-YO Yellow Yucky!!

Ok SO I get to play on SCS Color challenge and what color combo is it? YO YO YELLOWand grays! At first I thought UGH! and remembered this cute little duck stamp that had yet to be inked.
I also did not have any gray papers so I had to go with black and used only the going gray ink in this challenge!
This card is what I came up with!

What do you think?

Ok Off to do today's challenge if the little ones sleep long enough that is!

Wish upon a star!

I cannot believe that my camera just started working again on it's own. I thought for sure that it had been damaged beyond repair after its little swim. I have had it sitting on the computer table since it happened. I tried it out today an BINGO! it is working!

Hot diggity Dog! I just saved myself several hundred dollars. Now I can spend my money on more stamping supplies! YIPPEE!! And people tell me I should throw things away HA to that.( I am now doing a very bad imitation of an end zone dance. ) LOL

Anyway here is a quick card I made with my new Rubbernecker Stamps The inside says "When you wish upon a star makes no difference who you are" (Do you find yourself singing this sentiment? Or is it just me????) I was just playing with different coloring techniques and remembered I needed a baby congrats card. I will upload the others later, once the images make it onto cards.

What I used.........
Stamps: Rubber necker
Papers: TAC and Stampin Up
Ribbon: Michaels clearance
Ink: Stazon, prisma pencils, gamsol.

Thanks for looking!

My Word!!

I have been reading on many blogs the concept of choosing a word to define the year ahead. This sounded like a wonderful idea to try. But I can't seem to find the right word. I have been thinking and thinking trying to come up with something that can possibly define my little ol self and my life.

I was having a real tough time until I was having tea with my friend Doren this morning. A word that kept surfacing in our conversation was PROGRESSION. Here is the definition according to Webster's New Dictionary:

[Progress] ---- n. forward movement; passage from place to place; to go on to advance, continue.

This fits me to perfection. My life is a steady work in progress in regard to my personal relationships, my new healthy lifestyle and career. I think this word fits my resolutions to a "T".
I may even add another word to it mid year,, (Don't want to rush this progression at all ) LOL
I have patience sure I do Wink! Wink!!

The word that I may add is
FULFILLMENT - - - v. to fulfill; to carry out; to satisfy to complete. (according to Webster's New Dictionary)

I am so impatient!! LOL This life we live is an ever changing journey and progression will always be part of our lives unless we decide to stagnate become a hermit and never change a bit.

Ok enough of my philosophy 101 lol. I have been using my new bind it all machine to make some cool stuff and I promise to share it with you once I figure out my stupid camera and get it to upload the photos on it.

Happy Hump day!!
