HI friends!

I wanted to say how much I enjoy reading the comments from all of my friends at Cricut.com! Let me tell you, itf it were not for that site, ALL my crafting goodies would still be collecting dust! Thanks for all the great comments! And please keep them coming! I love ya ladies!!!!!

Crab and Company Card



I made this card for the Philly Inkers group as well. It features the Crab and Company Stampin Up set. I sort of "scraplifted" the design from my good friend Terri. I love how her card looked and was in a pinch to make something. She said she didn't mind! Thanks again Terri!

Season Of Joy card



I made this card for a swap for the Philly Inkers Group. I used real red and glorious green cards stock. On Whisper White I stamped the tree from the Season of Joy Stampin Up set. I then used adhesive over the entire white piece and added Stampin Up's Dazzling Diamonds. I love this technique, as there is no need to use your heat gun!

Season of Friendship





I love how this card turned out!! I made this one for a swap with the Philly Inkers group. First I used Very Vanilla cardstock. I crumpled up saran wrap and dabbed it into three colors, Real Red, Old Olive and So Saffron. I adhered the very vanilla to the red riding hood cardstock and then again to the old Olive, I then stamped the sentiment on Old Olive Cardstock adhered to the card and Viola!
I love that this set is so versitile! It comes with the tree (which I stamped in Chocolate chip) and then a few different smaller stamps, including the leaves, a bird, snowflakes and a flower. So you can change the look of the tree for the season!
