Thinking of You

August.13.2009

I’m so sad that the Thinking Inking class over at Two Peas is almost over.  That class was so inspiring.  I loved that card Jennifer made with the transparent window so much that I made one of my own.

Thinking of You

I had some old Fiskars embossing plates (you know, the ones you emboss by hand) that I have hardly used (I need a Cuttlebug).  I used the leaves one for this card.  The transparent strip is actually the packaging that was wrapped around a new album I bought.  I just cut it down to size.  I used Lettuce, Stream and Silver alcohol inks.  The chipboard flower is from Me & My Big Ideas.  It’s all cute and glittery.  You can’t really see that in the picture.  The “Thinking of You” stamp is from a set by Hero Arts.  The first time I stamped the sentiment I put it in the wrong place.  So I made a cute little block with a some scrap cardstock and a border punch and just adhered it over my boo-boo.  I think it looks better anyway, more interesting.  Thanks for looking and if you want to see more pictures you can check them out in my gallery on Two Peas.

Oh!  I almost forgot.  I got my prize package from Paper Crafts in the mail the other day.  Oh my!  You should see all the stuff packed in that box.  They are soooo generous.  It is amazing.  I’ll have to make a little video (or 2 or 3) to share it all with you.

I’m so sad.  I haven’t been neglecting my blog on purpose.  I’ve just been having a bad week.  My pretty kitty, Baby, died.  So I’ve been spending most of my time crying bucketfuls of tears.

I do have to admit, it appears I am one lucky gal.  I was the winner on Mellypea’s warehouse walk giveaway for last week!  All I can say is wow!  That’s 2 prizes in about 2 weeks.

When I get all this stuff I’m definetely going to share it with you.  I have the 2 prizes coming, plus some stamps from Unity Stamp Co. This is my first order with them.  All of their stamps look super-cute.  I really want to join their Kit-of-the-Month Club.  Maybe I should budget for that.

Since I don’t have any scrapbook related stuff to show you how about checking out some pictures I took over the weekend?  Does that sound okay?  Let me know what you think.

I’m a winner!!!

I’m so excited!  I just got an email from P. Kelly Smith at Paper Crafts magazine and I am a winner!  Remember all that blog hopping I was doing last week and I told you guys about that great contest?  Well I won!  I am so excited!  Can’t you tell?  See all the exclamation points!!!!  That is a sign.  Well, according to the email I won five paper collections and a copy of Card Creations, Volume 7.  Oh my, I never win anything.  This is so great.  When I get the prize I’ll be sure to show you all what I got.  If I’m not back before the weekend have a safe and happy 4th!
