I've Been Tagged

What a nice surprise to find out I was tagged by Jenna from A "Sap" for Stamps- thanks for thinking of me Jenna- (I'm still new to all this blogging stuff);
Ok so here are 7 weird or random things about me:
1) I love coffee, I can drink it all day and still fall asleep at night!
2) I got my one and only tattoo when I was 41 (must have been some mid-life crisis thing)
3) I was born in El Paso, Tx and raised in Chicago
4) I love Door County WI- half of my family lives there
5) I rather shop online- it's faster and easier
6) If I could, I would be scrappin and stampin all day!
7) Life is never dull for me- there's always something going on! I don't even get a chance to get bored

Card Box

Here is a picture of some of the Tin Boxes we made at my good friend, Angie's house. They were all darling. What a creative bunch of ladies- It's amazing to see what your imagination can come up with!
Some of the Ladies made them into recipe boxes and some are going to use them as a card holder or just a plain ol'trinket box.

Door COunty

I must say as much as I'm ejoying my Door County weekend, I'm having withdrawals from crafting!!! I haven't had a chance to use my new fall sets, from the SU Mini Holiday Catolog.

I'm very inspired- the colors in WI at this time of year are so beautiful- the weather is perfect, fall is a great season. The best news yet is a friend of mine whom I met through some Door County Crafting Escapes joined StampinUp! Welcome, Brenda!

So watch for some fall/Thanksgiving cards and some scrapbook pages!

This was a beautiful card we made at my uplines Techniques Class on Saturday. We did sponging and masking on a glossy piece of cardstock. We used the Lovely as Tree and the Winter Post stamps.
I mounted my card on the Purely Pomegranate card stock (retired) and used the same color on the girl's skirt with the SUaquamarker. Her sweater is Regal Rose-the boy's pants were done in Pacific Blue and sweater in Barely Banana.
The sky was sponged on with three different blues. I put some glitter on the girls collars and cuffs, and added some by the trees.

FUN Halloween Card

This was a fun Halloween card to make. I love this time of year and I am having too much fun making Halloween/Autumn/Thanksgiving Cards....
I used The Halloween DSP from SU along with SU Tangerine Tango card stock and ribbon. The Stamp is from Northwoods Rubber Stamps, the Spider is from SU Eat Drink and be Merry. I colored in the witches feet with various SU Markers.

Check these out!

I Love the Bella Rose Patterned Paper from StampinUp- It goes so well with all the new colors. These were made by a fellow StampinUp Demonstrator. I found them in my Document folder.

Friend to Friend

I've been working on cards. cards, and more cards - I'm trying to get a bunch ready for the display board- the problem is- there are sooo many fun stamps from StampinUp!
This was a simple one made with the Silhouette Stamp, stamped in black ink
I love the pink and black combo- I used the Piroutte Pink, Black, Pixie Pink and Whisper white and the black and white checkered ribbon-
I need to make some adjustments with the camera, its doing this card no justice
