Pay It Forward...

A few weeks ago I won a PIF (Pay It Forward) from Lynn and now I am ready to reciprocate the kindness to someone else!

Here's the rules:

All you have to do is leave a comment on my blog. I will use a random # generator to pick the winner. When you leave your comment, please leave the # comment you are. I will choose the winner Sunday Night 3/2/08.

I've got a box of goodies to send the lucky person!

Good Luck..

ETA... You must continue the Pay It Forward if you win!

Meet The Newest Stampin' Up Demo!

Yep.. I did it! Ordered my kit tonight and I'm so excited!

I'm most likely going to start out as a hobbiest. I don't feel like my crafting in stamping is good enough yet so I'm going to work on perfecting some techniques and LEARNING!!!

I hope to have a lot of fun with Cheryl, my upline and another friend Maria who also just joined!

Cards and Challenges!

I can't believe I actually created 2 cards tonight! I issued a challenge to my stamping buddies here locally where I live and provided Julee Tilman's sketch challenge to motivate everyone. Here's the card I made for the challenge:
Here's another card I made tonight for a friend that needs a card to give someone who's eloping in a few days..

Shelley issued a challenge to us to update our blogs, so I'm killing two birds with one stone!

We've had crazy weather here today! Most of the state of Florida lost power today for a long period of time. A strong cold front is pushing it's way through and we've had tornado watch and warnings all day. Right now it's POURING and lightning and thundering. We need the rain..but I'm not looking forward to the 30 degree weather that's coming with the rain. YUCK!

Thanks for looking!!

Have a great night!

This picture doesn't do the card justice!

I really have to come up with a better way to photograph my cards. The pictures aren't coming out well at all. And I have a NICE camera.

I made this tonight with a new stamp I bought this weekend at StampFest.
I used stickles on the green leaves, the pitcher and the glass. I also used my new corner adorner punch and the sentiment reads "thanks so much".

I'm going to start a weekly challange with my stamping buddies to keep us motivated!

Great Weekend of Stamp Related Fun!!

Saturday, a bunch of my scrapping/stamping buddies and I got together to go to the Stampfest held in Clearwater. I had never been before and OMG.. I was in heaven! I spent WAY to much money but I got some really cool stamps and accessories.

Here's a card I made tonight with one of my new stamp sets from Darcie's. I colored this with my Prismacolor Pencils and used OMS to blend. I also forgot to post the Valentine's Day Card I made for my son.... so here it is! He loves to fish so this was the perfect card.. It's a Bella Fella!

Thanks for looking!!

Bella Birthday Cards!

Made this birthday Bella for one of my co-workers whose birthday is on Valentine's Day.

I used DCWV Cardstock pre-made cards, cuttlebug for the embossed background and Prima Flowers to embellish along with some fiber yarn I had in my stash. I colored it with Prisma Color Watercolor pencils.

This card was colored by my daughter. Her best friend's birthday is also Valentine's Day and she wanted to make her a Bella Card. I think she did very good for her first card! I'm very proud of her and she really had fun making it! This card was colored with my Prismacolor Pencils and blended with OMS.

Thanks for looking!

I really am a bad blogger!

Made this card for my cousin and his wife who are expecting a baby girl in May! They have two little boys already and this is their first girl! WOOHOO!!

I've been so behind on blogging!! Sorry for those of you who come check in on me! I promise to be a better blogger!

My scrapping group held a crop on Saturday, Feb 2. It was a lot of fun even though I only got 2 pages done! I spent more time stamping and going through tons of stamps that Becky put on the swap table and For Sale Table.

I bought several stamps that day.. some really cute ones that I can't wait to play with. I got two Bella's from Shelley.. Javabella's and Teach-A-Bella.

I made a couple of cards to share. I still have to finish my Valentines Day Cards. Nothing like waiting till the last minute huh??

Friday Night I'm having my very first Stampin Up Party! I'm so exicted!!

Saturday, I'm going to Stamp Fest where I am sure I'll get into tons more trouble! I'm so hopeless! I just need to get my butt off the computer and start stamping! I need some Mojo!

Oh!! Other excited news... I won a set of stamps from The Pink Cat Studio!

I chose Lily & Tweet... aren't they adorable??? Can't wait to get them!

I'm going to make cards tomorrow night with my daughter so I promise to post pictures of what we come up with.

Toodles for now!
