Two posts in one day...wow!!!
Isn't he the cutest? Here is another monthly swap kit that I received. Sorry, can't tell you who the doggie stamp is by, but he was so fun to color. And the "friends" stamp was one I picked up months ago on someone's clearance rack.
Can you see his juicy nose? I put a little crystal effects on his nose to give it a nice wet look. How about some smooches :)
Now I have to get back to my brag books I have been working on. I need to finish one and do another one before Saturday. Will definitely post some pictures once I'm done. They are absolutely adorable!!! If I may say so myself?

- When stamping on window/acetate/vellum sheets, put grid paper underneath the sheet to help line up flowers/animals/shapes, etc.). And then use your stampa-ma-jig to help you with the placement of the images. Your images should come out just the way you want them every time!
- If you have an image with sticky on the back or stickers that you think would be great "poppep-up" on your card, just blot the sticky side with your embossing buddy to get rid of the sticky. It's a lot easier and cleaner than using a bottle of baby powder.

- You can transform a boring fishing tackle box into a great storage box for all your small embellishments like buttons, eyelets, brads, rhinestones, etc. And now you can even find tackle boxes in cute colors like pink and purple.

- Ribbon Tying-Check out Roxy's blog. I came across her tutorial just by googling. And with such a great ribbon tutorial, I couldn't help myself, I had to click on some other tutorials. You won't be disappointed.

And here is mine...
I was so proud of this card. Especially after going through a bit of a slump for the past two weeks. And after a busy weekend, it was nice to sit down and color, cut, fold, and all the other great therapy you get from making cards. I have a girlfriend who has a birthday next week. I think this might be the card that I send to her.
Hi everyone, I had someone ask in the comments area what was an "upline". I can remember just over a year ago asking the same question. Your upline is the person(s) that you signed under when you become an SU demo. I'm sure other companies use the same term. Your upline are the ones who are responsible for "sucking" you in-LOL. Hope I explained well.
The second challenge came from Karolyn and this time she challenged us to make a card using inspiration from the Academy Awards. We were able to choose from the posters of the movies that were nominated for best picture. Now I chose the poster from the movie The Curious Case of Benjamin Button...
And here is my creation...
