romantic orange...

This card was made especially for my new friend
Cheri. We don't get together enough. Cheri, Let's do lunch! Last time we did lunch I gave her this card to make her smile.

Since I made it about 6 weeks ago and forgot to post it, I don't remember a lot of the details. The flowers are Prima, the ovals are nesties, the coloring was with Copics, there's Stickles all over the place an su gem. That about says it :)

thanks for peeking!

guess what i got...

umm humm a bind it all! I've been wanting one forever. I spec'ed them out in stores online and in person. eP has lovely ones :D I was all ready to buy one when I found this used one on freecycle. Even came with coils! So here's the first lovely I made with it. It will be a teachers gift.

The cherries coaster came that way... I know how exciting that I didn't even have to cover it with paper. This sentiment reminded me of the saying "Life is like a bowl of cherries" so I knew it was going on here. I just wish I'd used red ink and a green scallop. Live and learn. It's not like I don't have three other teachers to make them for! I guess it's a good thing that when JoAnn's had these printed coasters 4/50c that I bought them all up! Each pack comes with two cherry and two red and white gingham. Too cute!

stamp: kolette hall
paper: american crafts red, georgia pacific white, joanns printed coasters
accessories: taylored expressions, making memories, stampin, up and michael's ribbons

remember me...

... sure you do! I've just been so busy with school and all my other busy work that I have neglected my blog for what, a MONTH! I am so sorry! I hope you'll forgive me :) purty please?????

Here is something I worked on just after I went MIA. It's a box I got for half price at the stamp expo. I decorated it all up for Carefree Karen who now resides in Hawaii!

It was for my little give away months ago. Yeah, it took a while to get to her, but that was part of the rules! I hope all the goodies I stuff inside made it worth the wait. It's been so long, I really have no idea what I crammed into it.

There's little gems at the top of each scallop and I used the SU ribbons around it. I dabbed some Ranger acrylic paint on the edges (love those dabbers and I am so glad I got like ten different colors at the stamp expo!)

paper: stampin' up urban garden
accessories: stampin' up corduroy buttons and ribbon, michael's gems, martha stewart border punch, ranger acrylic paint dabber
