January 2008

I have been Whipped, Snapped and by golly...

I have some fabulous Designs!!! What am I referring to? Well, my loot from Whipper Snapper Designs showed up today!! YAHOO!!! And of course, all I ordered was a bunch of Anna's stuff. What can I say? She draws some pretty cute things over there. Sigh...

Anywho, wanna see what I got? heehee So excited... :)


Don't they look like fun? Can you guess which stamp I bought just to make cards for my Sis? Uh huh, the Bowl of Cherries. Yes, Trina has a small cherry problem. Okay, maybe a BIG one! LOL

Wanna see the card I made her? No? Okay, maybe you will change your mind later.

So, did you all see the cute sketch that Jen del Muro posted on her blog over the weekend? No? Didn't see that either? Well, some of you MUST have. Okay, okay, here is the LINK. Did you go check it out? Well hurry up, I haven't got all night, GEEZ!!! LOLOLOL

Did you see the sketch? Are you ready to see my card yet? Well too bad, I am going to show it to you anyway...

Tahhhhh Dahhhhhhh!!!!

Alright, well, I am off to bed. I haven't felt well all day (stomach ache) and my head is starting to pound. Needless to say, I need to pop some pills & hit the sack. Hope you all have a FANTASTIC Thursday! Only one more day, only one more day... YEAH!!

Baker out. :)

Who's got Mojo???

I do, I do!! Mojo Monday that is! A big thanks to JULEE for the ROCKIN sketch!!! You can check it out HERE. I emailed my good buddy Linda aka LSN tonight and asked her what she was up to. Unfortunately it was not stamping...WHAN!! But she did mention Julee's sketch and something about Love Robot. Well, hello, don't tell me twice! I emailed her back and said I was going whip up a little something with the same sketch and stamps and would be posting it tomorrow (okay, so it is really today). LOL I can't wait to see what Linda has in store. So exciting!! Hurry up Linda, I wanna know what you made!!!! :)

Anywho, this is what I came up with...


You have to love the Basic Grey color from SU! It is soooo YUMMY!!! Crikey, you know, I am looking at my picture and I have to say, the Sakura Glitter Pen is not showing up all that well where I outlined some of the embossed circles. WHAN!! But the shimmery white paper? You can really see it shimmer, can't you? Must be my awesome photography skills.... NOT!!! LOLOLOL Yes, I am cracking myself up tonight. LOLOL

Okay, so here are the deets Peeps...

Hey, anyone up for another challenge tonight? I was thinking about using my new Whipper Snapper Stamps (they should be here when I get home) but I haven't decided on a sketch. Anyone want to play???? Come on now, don't be shy!! :)

Moving on after today...

to another sketch that is. LOL

For this card I flipped Anna's sketch on it's side and went to town. I used some new stamps that my super sweet friend, Toni, gave me. HOW COOL IS THAT??? She is too good to me! Luv ya Toners!! :)


I am finally breaking the hold on my Designer Papers. I have been hoarding them for awhile now and have FINALLY decided to start breaking them out...slowly, but surely... :)

How friggin' cute is that coffee cup (or it could be a tea cup...) topiary? Oh my goodness, LOVE IT!! I have visions of stamping it next time with steam coming off the top. How funny would that be? Or maybe a little bird swimming in the top coffee cup?? LOLOLOL

Okay, okay, enough already, ready for the deets Peeps??? :)

Cardstock: Sahara Sand (I know, here we go again...LOL), Bashful Blue, So Saffron, Creamy Shimmery cardstock & SU! Designer Paper

I have been meaning to make a card using this sketch Anna Wight posted on her BLOG forever ago but just now got around to it. I love this layout. And, well, the stamps are really doing it for me too! Yes, I bought them from Anna's SHOP. Crikey, maybe I should rename this post "All about Anna!" LOLOLOL

Anywho, here is my card using Anna's sketch...

Simple Sunday

Well, I stayed up until 1:30am last night cleaning off my desk so that I could stamp the day away. So far, so good. I have my laundry going, a nice Chai Latte and some Memory Box penguins that are wantin' some love. YEAH!!

So I already whipped a little somethin' somethin' for your viewing pleasure since I haven't posted a new card in a couple of days...hope you like it....
