some atc's

above: Folded ATC closed. I cut a 2 1/2" x 6" strip, and scored at 2 1/2", to make a folded ATC. Using Priceless set, stamped and cut out heart, and adhered to edge so point of heart overlapped and held flap closed.
I thought I was clever!! LOL
Below: not same ATC. out of order pic!
Below: folded ATC open.
open ATC inside stamped.
So Swirly wheeled with Regal Rose ink.
Textured Vanilla cardstock.
Regal Rose 5/8 ribbon, ink.
Groovy Guava paper (circle)
Rose Red Designer paper
Dazzling Diamonds glitter
Click on pics for huge up close look!! ;)

contraband..lol

I stepped out of the SU! realm into some cute Stampendous stamps!! eclecticPaperie carries a HUGE line of Stampendous stamps!
Im so used to using a TON of background and accent stamps, and I didnt have many of Stampendous' stamps for that. I LOVE the Mega Happy Birthday set, and used the Agapanthus flower as a background. Very simple cards, I feel they arent really "me". It was kinda hard steppin' out of the SU 'box' per se!! I need to work on that!

And honestly, I am a card-maker, not a scrapbooker!! LOL I WANT to be a scrapper, but I dont do much, so it IS out of my comfort zone! Lord knows how many BOXES of photos I have from, well, you know, at least High School, and dont ask when I graduated!! *snort!!*
Stampendous stamps also. I love these pics of my Daughter!! She loves water and fun!!
sigh...

....husbands.......

AYE!! So back to the post about my Soft Sky room.........the Husband would NOT like to paint it Soft Sky now. sigh...after all that. So, because I want to put the dining table in the back room(where the tv is now), and a smaller table in the kitchen, and the couch, chairs and TV in the aforementioned front room, I need to let my DH do what he wants in the front room (which is NOT paint it Soft Sky) HMPH!! He wants chocolate brown. OK.
We have already painted the aforementioned BACK room that color and its real nice, I like it.
So, the front room will now be chocolate, all nice and warm and cozy, and the kitchen will be the SOFT SKY!! I think I will like it better that way anyway!!! more sighs........

FIRES


First 2 pics are looking from the middle of my street looking south over Ladera Ranch.





This is the terrible view from my backyard. This is looking south.

This is the fire that is in Camp Pendleton right now. 15 miles away?

ATC swap cards




Bernadine in Florida ATC swap group. I used TRUE FRIEND (yes!!) set avail. Sept 1st! Watch for your new Holiday Mini coming soon!! ALL the sets in the Holiday mini are DIE-CUT!! You dont even have to TOUCH your scissors! How RAD is that!!! Soft Sky base, lg. medallion/flower stamped in Soft Sky ink, strip of red polka dot from Cutie Pie Des. Paper, stamped the SAME lg. medallion/flower in Soft Sky onto Shimmer white. Stamped smaller flower with dots in P.Pomegranate ink over medallion. Then, get this, I used the 5 Petal Flower Punch to punch it out and make a snowflake! (well, faux anyway!!). Glittered up the edges and distressed with Pomegranate, and distressed edges of ATC.
Oh yeah, get this #2!!- My Word Window Punch is MIA, so I cut a strip of Shimmer about 3/8" wide and stamped PEACE on it, distressed edges, THEN--- I used my 3/16 Corner Rounder(guide removed) to punch one end to make it LOOK the the Word Window!! Clear as mud??!! Brilliant!! mwah-hahahaha
It was hard to catch the sparkle of glitter, Im still figuring out the best way to photo stuff. I think I used my MACRO setting. I have a Fuji FinePix 3.2 megapixel camera. Id LOVE that Nikon D-40!!!! Enjoy!!

Look at those words!! Aint they cool?!!

Stamped Baroque Motifs in Choc. Chip in corner, & on Choc strip on Bottom, &
D2B-Fabulous in Choc. Chip ink.
Stamped that FAB "Zin-Dahlia-Mum" flower in Groovy Guava on Shimmer paper, then trimmed down the petals cuz it was just too big! Distressed edges with Choc Chip, and layered it with Shimmer paper covered in G Guava and punched with 5 Petal punch. Stamped off the smaller flower to get a light peach color using Guava, and Antique brad, and popped up on Dimensionals! Wow-TMI!! lol
Dyed white Grosgrain ribbon with Groovy Guava (waiting for my GG Dbl stitch ribbon!)
I think thats it! Enjoy and thanks for looking!

Sample for my New Catty Class Sunday the 15th!!
Fairly simple, utilizing 2 new punches-Scallop and 5 Petal flower punch. I stamped Shimmer paper in Blue bayou with Linen stamp, then punched out Scallop, cut it in half, and spread it out under the ribbon to make it appear larger.
Punched Porcelain Prints DS paper with the Flower punch,green flower from WANTED set, green Rhinestone brad in center. Blue Bayou ribbon, and stamped "zin-dahlia-mum" (lol-scs) flower from Fabulous Flowers in corner. FRIEND stamp is from
