Here's the card I made for my mother in law's birthday, She doesn't like this set very much, I'm hoping this card makes her change her mind... I used mellow moss, true thyme and whisper white cardstock, I stampes the background of the card with white craft ink and true thyme, the card front with river rock and true thyme, the flowers are stamped true thyme on white cardstock and white craft on true thyme cardstock, and I used the corner punch for the corners. The brads I got them at target in the dollar spot, just one of the advantages of working there not to mention my employee discount, but that's another story. I hope Deb like's this card, thanks for looking!!!!!
here's a card I made for my father in law's birthday. The tree is stamped with stazon and watercolored. I used creamy caramel for the card, caribean blue, blue bayou, basic black and watercolor cardstock for the front. For stamps I used lovely as a tree and it's your birthday sets. Thanks for looking!!!

Here's the cards We'll be making at our stamp a stack, which I'm still nor sure when We'll be making them, some time in September. It's been so hectic this last couple of weeks. I went back to work at my favorite store Super Target. I love it, I loved it before but now with groceries, deli, and a a meat department I'm in heaven and the best part I get my employee discount on everything, I'm so happy to be back at work, I get to get out of the house, talk to people, I'm at the guest service counter and even though they come in to complaint I still love my job. I still love rubber stamping so I'm still going to post stuff, I'll try to do it regularly, so bare with me here and I hope you keep on coming by....
I found a bunch of these frames at my local dollar store, so I decided to make some frames for friends. This one is for a friend of mine who is a teacher so I thought this frame would be great on her desk. I never knew that they were the ones who decorate their own classrooms, and it's all out of their pocket, I thought that the school district pays for all that, I guess I was wrong. I hope she likes it...TFL

I got to say, the one who had the most fun at the San Diego KOA was Zacky. the little cabin was perfect for his size, he just loved cruising arround the cabin and playing at the front door, here he is kicking us out of the cabin..
Our kids sure made friends quickly with that huge ball. This is the front yard for all the cabins it was pretty cool you can see and talk to all your neighbors...
Here's Rico and Danny looking for sea "enemies" at the tide pools here. There was a lot of cool stuff to see, they found some crabs, little fishes, hermit crabs, and sea anemone's, but so star fishes, that was a bummer but they still had fun...
So, I just got back from San Diego, We took the kids camping at the KOA there. it was a lot of fun, eventhough We were only there for 3 days, but trust me with 3 boys that was plenty, We had time to go to the beach, which We all love, the weather was perfect a little cool at night perfect for camping, I hate hot nights, and Zack's first time in a swimming pool, this was his second time at the beach, We went to pismo beach last march, but the water was still cold he didn't get in the water, this time he was so happy he didn't want to get out...

I made these letter's for my niece's b-day, her name is Angie she's 2 years old, I love making stuff for my nieces because I'm really girly, but I don't get to do girly stuff for my kids because I only have boys, so that was fun. I just used plain wooden letters from Walmart, gave them a coat of white paint, glued the paper on them, sanded the edges, sponged them, and decaorated with ribbons and things. It was a quick project, well I had to make them fast, I bought the stuff Saturday and her party was Sunday morning. I think they turned out cute, I'm very happy witht he way they look... TFL

These are drink coasters I made also for my mother in law. they are made with ceramic tiles. I printed the pictures on tissue paper and glued it to the tile with modge podge, and gave it another coat to protected let dry stamped with stazon black ink and sprayed on a clear sealer, dont's forget to put the felt pads on the bottom so your table don't get scratched. I'll be doing a class on both the coaster tiles and the coaster scrapbook, if you live in the high desert area contactme for details...TFL ps. click on the picture to enlarge.
I made this hanging scrapbook with chipboard coasters for my mother in law's birthday, that's them right there on the second tile. to do this I simply cover the chipboard with glue covered with the printed paper, after it dried I trimmed, sanded and sponged the edges, then attached the hinges with some brads, put my pictures on and the title, I used my sizzix machine and die cuts for that athached a ribbon on the top to hang it and that was it. It was pretty simle but it looks like it took a lot of work, you can also make it to stand on a desk or shelf that looks great too. Thanks for looking and come back and visit soon...

Another father's day card, I made 2 of this one, one for each of my fathers in law. I'm still playing with my new piercing bugs they're so much fun, I layered the giraffe on a piece of Faux Leather kind of hard to tell in the picture but it looks better IRL.. Thanks for visiting....

Here's the basket I raffled off in the diaper drawing everybody who brought diapers got their name in the drawing. In the basket I included some non SU 12x12 scrapbook paper, a stamp set, some water color pencils, a blender pen, a sponge, a letter opener, ribbon, paper clips and of course that frame. It was so much fun....

Don't pay attention to the date, I still haven't fix my camera, anyway... We made this card at our June meeting it was a Father's Day theme, for the Faux Leather you just need to cover the entire piece of paper with masking tape then I went over with the brayer to make sure the tape was stuck there really good, then I went over with the creamy caramel and then close to cocoa until I got the desired color then cover with clear embossing powder and heat set. I stamped the elephant with black stazon (very important) colored it with creamy caramel and blended it. This technique is soo cool I tried it on a wood picture frame and it looks cool too, I'll post that one later I need to put the finishing touches on it but in my case that can take weeks. Oh well I guess you just have to keep checking...
