Three Little Words & Three Little Roses

Here's a card I made for my parents who live in Florida. These are the planned colors for my upcoming wedding so I really like playing around with them and seeing what I can come up with. I'm seeing possible Thank You cards in my head...hehe.

I love it and hope you do too!

Comfort Food

These are just a few 3x3 cards I made this week. I've never really played with this size before, but I felt like to really highlight this stamp set I needed to do a smaller card.

I made this "donut be sad" card for my colleague Kathy who just got back from vacation.
This one I made for my fiance. He'd had a rough day and I knew a card would make him smile...especially one with a silly little pun like this.

The stamp set is Comfort Food a level 1 hostess set (you can get this set for free with a $150 order! Contact me for details). The patterned paper is something I got from a fellow stamper so I don't know who makes it. The cardstock is an old in color I had on hand that matched the paper fairly well I thought.

Leave a comment and tell me what you think! Oh...and maybe what you're favorite comfort food is...mine is Chocolate! yummy!

Flowers Flowers Everywhere

This cute little box is what I gave my mother for Mothers Day. You can find a tutorial for this adorable box on my wonderful upline, Lisa Freeman's blog.

I filled the box with some custom cards and stationary using another of my favorite sets; Upsy Daisy.

Thanks for stopping by~ and don't forget to let me know what you think!

Spring Brings Roses

First let me tell you...I am OBSESSED with SU!'s Fifth Avenue Floral set. I love it! It never leaves my desk, and its always ALWAYS inky.

Here is the card I created for my Mom and my wonderful Future Mother-In-Law for Mother's Day.

You can find a tutorial for this base of this project on Stephanie Luman's blog.
I played with the roses a bit to get some different dimensions. I cut each one on different lines and assembled them with's a detail shot:
The ingredients for this card include: Riding Hood Red CS, Pink Piroutte CS, Candy Cane Lane DSP, Kraft DSP, Whisper White CS, and some lovely silver brads.
