I wanted to share a card I did for one of the monthly swaps I participate in on SCS. Well, I finally got some inspiration back. Weekend before last I was a really lazy stamper. I just wasn't in the mood to step foot into my craft room. Everytime I would go in there I couldn't even begin to think of what I wanted to do. But this weekend was a lot better. I completed 2 cards for my monthly swaps, I did 2 sets of card kits for swaps I'm in, and I even stamped out some images for another swap. Wow-that's a lot for me. Unfortunately, I can only tell you that I used SU's Pink Pirouette for the card base. All the other material was sent to me from the hostess.

I hope most of you are in warmer conditions. It is currently -9 degrees in my part of Illinois. No school for the kiddies and a "I'm going in late today" for me. Who can be on time for work in this type of weather?
Well on to my card for today. I have to say that I absolutely loooovvvved coloring this image last night. First I have to give a big thank you to "craftycrunchymama" (Susan) over on SCS for sending me these Sugar Nellie images of "Daisy". She is so adorably cute. I am going to have to purchase this stamp. That is, when it comes off of backorder. Well here she goes... Isn't she the cutest? I think I fell in love with this image because I don't have any girls of my own, and she just looks like what a little girl of mine would look like. Well enough of the mushy stuff, because this image is as close to a little girl I will get. Not counting my 3 neices.
And I am so proud to say that I used my SU markers to color her in. Get to know me and you will know that I-should I say it?-o.k. here it goes..."I hate SU markers!" I know, I know, how dare an SU demo say such a horrible thing. Shame on me. But I always get an ugly picture using them. Maybe the old saying practice makes perfect holds true for SU markers also. Because I do like the way she turned out. However, I did use a black prismacolor pencil to color her hair in.
Well I guess I should get to work, I did just get here only about 30 minutes ago. Have a warm day!!!
Oh, here is the inside of the card. I don't always decorate the inside but since I used such a simple sentiment on the front I thought I would make room for someone to write a personal message.

Here is another card I did for a swap. I made the choice to stay simple. And since I was using SU-Pink Pirouette classic ink, you may not be able to see a lot of the stamping. This card was made using a DSP that I had bought months ago and SU-Bravo Burgundy & Very Vanilla CS and SU-Very Vanilla Ribbon. I also used the square scallop & corner rounder punches by SU.

This card was made using SU- Rose Red CS, SU-Vintage Brads, SU-Silver Chunky Glitter, SU-So Swirly Jumbo Wheel used with Versamark
Now I really liked the DSP that was sent for this card. This is one of my favorite color combos. I attempted to do a funky fold/opening with this one. Plus it is not a standard size card. I used SU- Pink Pirouette CS and some brown eyelets. The ribbon was supplied by the hostess also.

As you can see I have also added a little more color and spice. I purchased a blog kit from Shabby Miss Jenn . I found out about this website through reading many posts on SCS. And it didn't cost much at all. It was about $5.50 and there were several templates to choose from. You just download the files and start working. There is also a video tutorial on the website that I used while putting my blog back together again. The one thing that I hate about all this is that I lost soome valuable stamping time this weekend. Especially when I had a swap that was all designed, cut, and ready to be assembled. Well I still have the rest of the day. Talk to you guys later, and hopefully the next post will be card related!!!

...and I wish all of you a GREAT New Year.
My resolutions have been made, and I am not one to make those. But I resolve this year to get more organized. And boy do I need it. I'm on track now because I spent most of Wednesday evening cleaning and organizing my craft room. But it doesn't stop there. I need organization throughout my whole life; my bedroom, bathroom, car, kitchen, basement, work cubicle. I can go on and on. But I know all resolutions start out well. You're so good in the beginning, but by March it's all down hill.
My second resolution is to lose weight. Now I know that is probably what 90% of women in the world are looking to do. Well I hope this is definitely something I can keep up. I refuse to have a big butt on my husband's new Harley. I just refuse. Never mind that you should lose weight to get healthy, I am losing weight to look cute for the Harley!!! Now that's an incentive. LOL Maybe it will work this time.
