Once a month I get together with my Scrappy Friends, we call ourselves the “Scrappy Girls”.  This is the card I shared as a make n take.  I have been in a rut for the past couple months, trying to find my creative mojo.  I went to Pinterest for some inspiration and found it. I can add Pinterest to my thankful list.

I gather once a month with a group of ladies,

we call ourselves the “Scrappy Girls”.
We exchange cards, do make n’ takes, share scrappy tips,
we enjoy food, drinks, and each other’s company.
Lots of laughter abounds this group, along with
many conversations going on at once – LOL!

As many of you know, I am my dear hubby’s full time care giver.
He has been having a rough time here lately.
My Dear Scrappy Friends, have helped out by spoiling him
with wonderful desserts.  My Brad, has a sweet tooth.
Thank you Dear Friends!!!

I used Ai Funky Halloween stamp for this card.

Thanks for sharing some scrappy moments with me!

Challenge 96 – “Feeling Frosted?” Use Vellum!

I made this card for the Challenge at Art Impression Stamps.  I used Nurse Norma Set (Sku#4100) from Ai.  I made the curtain out of vellum.

Thanks for sharing some time with me!

Ai Challenge 72 – Photo Inspiration

Above picture is the color scheme to use for Ai Stamp Challenge this week.  I just love the colors!

First I grabbed paper to match the colors.  The paper is from StampinUp.

Next, I picked out Copics.

Then image to color.  I chose Girlfriend Blend Set (Sku#4132) along with sentiment from Comfy on Couch Set (Sku#4050). Then I used Spellbinder dies Label 7 and 8 to layer along wit Bubble edge from EK.  I ran two layers through embossing folders using OuicKuts “Happy Birthday” and “Jubilant”.  I stamped sentiment and added three buttons on a ribbon.  With some pop up tape and adhesive tape here is the finished project.

I am sending this to one of the Scrappy Girls who hosted our last get together.  Thanks Sue for your hospitality, all the delicious food, and for the laughs!
