Forgive me blogger ...

for I have sinned. It has been NINE days since my last post. I have really good excuses for not blogging. BUT I'll spare you and just post some cards I made (and am really happy with) instead. I'm donating ten cards to a fundraiser that's going to be held at the beginning of November. The gal who asked me to do it put the value at $40!!! Yikes!! Anyway, here are the first two ... (aka the only two so far!)


There are tiny rhinestones in the flower centers and larger rhinestones in the corners. The background flowers were dotted with stardust gel pen. I may have gone a touch overboard with the sponging ... but I still like the card overall.

Deets: All materials by Stampin' Up! unless otherwise noted. Stardust gel pen by sakura and rhinestone stickers by paper salon (??).


This next card may look familiar but I was so proud of the original that I figured it needed a reprise! I don't know how you can not love this (enormous) stamp. It's so much fun! The tub is covered in IIEP and so are the bottles. I covered the bubbles with crystal effects which made them SUPER shiny (yah!) but it also made them look a tad gray (boo!). I think I like this layout even better than the first.

Deets: All materials by SU! unless otherwise noted. Babs by Rubber Romance, Relax sentiment by A Muse. Silver sparkle gel pen by sakura. Cheap-o white brads from Hobby Lobby.


Alright ... back to work with me ... I have mucho to finish this week! Also I received my amuseaddicts bumper card from Kelly H (some cool ATC's--thanks!) and more birthday cards and BRAKs than I know what to do with so I will post those soon also! I'm so grateful to everyone who's sent me a card! What a great birthday! I'll post about my birthday at length soon. It was F.U.N.!!!

Both of these are awesome! I love the Simply Said one and i really needed some inspiration for that set! Haven't pulled it out in a long time! The sparkles on the tub are fantastic too! Love it!
