Hi all! Just wanted to pop in to let you know that I will have two
card kits available for purchase tomorrow at Photo Scraps in
Eldersburg, Maryland!
Here are the cards I've made:

The brick layer uses a stencil from My Favorite Things, along
with the showstopper mug of beer. I've used a
DecoArt Snow Writer to create the foam. So fun!
That background paper is custom paper by Tracy. She has created
some amazing papers for sale in the store. Go see for yourself!

Everything is stamped, ink blended, and cut to size. All you
have to do is assemble yourself using your 
choice of adhesives.
This is a very versatile card. You can use it for a birthday,
congratulations, Father's Day. It's all up to you!

 Welcome snarky peeps and happy Saturday to you!
It's time for the new challenge at the 
to start, and this fortnight it's T for TAGS!
Here's my take on it:

Looking for a person image to use, I rediscovered this stamp set from
Totally Stampalicious, back when Bugaboo stamps were made in
rubber and not digital form. I used a STAMPlorations luggage tag, and the
sentiment is from my Hot Mess stamp set.

I hope that you'll join us at the Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers in our
tag challenge! We'd love to see what you come up with. Need more ideas?
Simply visit the blogs of my Sistahs and leave some love while there!
Thanks for stopping by!

Christmas in...June?

 Hey all, I'm back with my second post today.
I'll make this quick since one of the challenges I want to
join in on is about to end. ;)
Here's a guy card using a new to me technique:

Here's the inside:

The technique is called Triple Time Stamping. First time I've tried this,
and I plan to make more cards using it. I've followed the tutorial 
from this video, just making slight adjustments to the layer dimensions to 
fit my card. I also made it much easier by using one big stamp. Another
bonus was that I already had the sentiment strip embossed and
ready to use. Yay me! 

Got to go enter this now before time's up.
Thanks for visiting! Have a great day!

Riding by to wish you a Happy Birthday

 Hello and welcome!
My blog has been somewhat silent last month, other than
for scheduled design team posts. May is a busy month
for us. Plus we just got back from our beach vacation,
(I want to go back!!!)  It's actually hotter here now
than it was last week on the beach in NC. Go figure.

Anyhoo, I took a break yesterday from the 'after vacation things to do'
and made a couple cards. Here's the first one:

Here's the inside:

I started with the card base and blended teal ink using the Clustered Hearts stencil.
The bicycle image was stamped and then I did a bit of masking for the basket, 
using a planter pot from the Succulently stamp set. Once everything was
colored and adhered, I added some ancient tiny flower stickers to the basket, 
and a few enamel dots to finish.

I love the fun, summery vibe of this card. :)
That's all for now. Have more laundry to wash.
Geesh, if there's one thing that infinite, it's laundry! LOL!
Thanks for visiting. Have a great day!
