You're On My Mind

Thats right! You're on my mind!! I had another week of hell. I've neglected my Blog and when I finally logged into my e-mail, I had over 120 unread e-mails. Now to weed through them all.

This card was made using my favorite stamp set Upsy Daisy. I like this color combination of Bravo Burgundy and So Saffron. I am not too sure of the Kiwi Kiss cardstock around the border of the image. The image and the sentiment were colored using markers. Let me know what do you think of this card?

I am off to bed as tomorrow will be a full day. Our company is having its company picnic and I will be working the first 2-3 hours before I can relax. TTYL!

I'm Baack!

Wow! this has been a week from hell!! I have been meaning to update with new posts as promised, and I even uploaded some pics to schedule. Didn't get around to it and I have had some e-mails asking about my pledge to update the blog on a regular basis this month. Besides the hectic days at work, my husband was sick. Last weekend he was not feeling well at all. I asked him if he wanted to go to the ER and he said he would be okay. This wasn't anything out of the ordinary for him so I didn't make a big deal out of it. Did I mention that he is a diabetic and has renal failure? Well by Monday morning he was so weak, I took him to the ER. He was severely dehydrated and his blood pressure was really low. He also had an infection.

Fast forward, five days later and here we are at Saturday. The hubs was released today and is feeling very good. He is still on antibiotics and is gaining his strength back. I can't believe how much I missed him this past week. Tonight we had dinner at the LA Food Show and our daughter Bri took this picture of us.

Pocket Silhouettes Notepad

This past weekend, my upline and sideline had our Open House. This is one of the door prizes I made. I found these cute little mini legal pads at the 99 cents store. They measure 3 1/2 x 5 1/4 and come 3 per pack. I thought they were so cute, and had to make a cover for them. This is the one I keep in my purse. There have been many times I am out and an idea strike me and need to write it down, but have no scrap paper in my purse, or I meet up with an old acquaintance, and need to exchange phone numbers but have nothing to write on (hello!! business cards). Has that ever happened to you? Well, problem solved. This tablet is a great item for my purse, and I am sure it is for the recipient too. TFL.

Upsy Daisy Birthday

I participated in a Silhouettes challenge from one of the groups I belong. This card is a case from Cindy Lawrence. While blog surfing, this card just jumped out at me and I just had to make one of my own. Since I signed up for the Silhouettes challenge, I thought why not make two. One for me and one for my assigned partner. I was so pleased with it's outcome, I gave the other card to my upline. I was too lazy to make another one.

I substituted the buttons with brads from the Earth Elements family. The DSP is from the Haiku series. The image and sentiment was colored in using Elegant Eggplant, Taken with Teal, and Old Olive Markers. Cardstock used are Very Vanilla, Taken with Teal, Elegant Eggplant, and Old Olive. The background on the Eggplant cardstock was stamped using one of the image from Sprinkles stampset.

I love the way this CASE turned out. I hope the recipient likes it as much as I do! TFL.

Upsy Daisy Again

Here is another Upsy Daisy card. This one is made with Chocolate Chip, Kiwi Kiss, Tangerine Tango, and Very Vanilla. Other stamps used on this card are Sanded Background and Curvy Verses. These colors compliment each other nicely.

Upsy Daisy

I am just loving this stamp set. It is so versatile. This stamp set can apply to either gender, it just depends on the colors you use. I saw a flap card at my BFFs house and liked the layout. So I borrowed it and made the Thank You card. Colors used are Chololate Chip, Kiwi Kiss, and Very Vanilla.

Upsy Daisy Birthday

In keeping with my pledge, here is a card I made this past weekend for a friend's birthday. It is made using SU's Top Note die. I thought it would be a great idea to make this card a flap card and open with the die cut. I've attached a picture of the card standing up so you can see how this card opens.

I used the Upsy Daisy stamp set with Kiwi Kiss ink and then filled in the flowers with a gold glitter pen, which you can't see in the picture. The edges of the Whisper White cardstock is sponged with Kiwi Kiss. The card is really pretty in person. Cardstock used are Taken with Teal, Kiwi Kiss, and Whisper White. Thanks for looking.
