Back in the Saddle Again.

Just in time to go out of town for the weekend. (*insert some self-deprecating remark about how lame and inconsistent a blogger I am and a plea not to abandon me yet--you, know the same ol' start to all my posts these days!*)

Here are some cards I did recently ... (I also did a decent birthday card for my homie (sp?) Tisha but I didn't get pictures snapped before I gave it to her. If she weren't out having fun at the fair, I'd run over and take pics of it but oh well. Hopefully later.)

This card is for the amuseaddicts challenge from LAST friday. Yeah, just getting it in under the wire. Story of my life! The "sport" here is cow wranglin'. The cow is cut out, popped up and roped with hemp twine, which I glued down with two small dots of mono multi. This layout leaves a bit to be desired (by me at least) but hey, I'm just happy to have STAMPED!

Deets: All materials by Stampin' Up! unless otherwise noted. Stamps: All images by A Muse (Calamity Jane, cow, yeeehaw, large oval bl); Paper: soft sky and whisper white; Ink: black stazon, wild wasabi, and soft sky Markers: real red, blush blossom, pretty in pink; Misc: giga scallop oval punch by marvy, crop-a-dile, 1/8" white eyelets by WRMemory Keepers, star twinkle stickers by A Muse, stardust gel pen by sakura, hemp twine, wild wasabi ribbon, dimensionals.

The next two are sympathy cards for some very close friends who've suffered a loss recently.

Deets: Stamps: All images by A Muse (birch trees, starry sky, sentiment); Paper: (all SU!) night of navy, soft sky, whisper white; Ink: SU night of navy, SU soft sky, versamark; Misc: ultra fine white embossing powder, SU dazzling diamonds glitter, sakura quickie glue pen.

Deets: Stamps: All images by A Muse (tiny bird and flower, tree stump, sentiment); Ink: brown stazon, versamark, alabaster chalk cats eye, SU:cool caribbean, close to cocoa, rose red, SU Markers: chocolate chip, cocoa, caramel, turquoise, certainly celery; Paper: Basic gray Mellow patterned paper, whisper white, chocolate chip; Misc: basuc gray ribbon, making memories brads, marvy giga scalloped circle, mega circle, and super jumbo scalloped circle punches, ultra fine white EP, sakura stardust gel pen, dimensionals.

I have a LONG list of projects ahead of me: two sets of ATC swaps (10 and 14), 7 birthday cards, 30 moving announcements, and a bumper card. All by sometime next week. And did I mention I'm out of town this weekend. Yikes! Hopefully I'll make it out of all this stamping insanity alive!!!

Anyway, have a great weekend. And if anyone has any mojo to spare can you send it my way. Thanks!

I agree wit the craftyengineer. I love the way you use the A Muse stamps too! You have such a way with them. And the card I won off your blog candy is one of my favorites!

Thanks for inspiring!
