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........
