Oldie but Goodie

Sorry, I do not have a lot of time today so I thought I would post something I did awhile back. This is a gift I made for the workers of our Bible School when the theme was jungle. It is a dry eraser board. This is a half sheet of card stock covered with a laminating sheet. The marker is held on with velcro tabs. I put a magnet on the back to hold it on the frig (or anything metal).

I stamped the Thanks a bunch right above my name stamp on the back. I printed the God loves me a bunch! from my pc.
Stamps: Monkey Business
Paper: Vanilla
Ink: Garden Green, Chocolate Chip, Summer Sun, Ruby Red

Wedding Card

I was asked today to make a "Wow" Wedding card. This is the first one I came up with today. I've been pretty sick (103 temp yesterday) and wiped today. So I will do another, hopefully today but slowly. All of the stamping is embossed. Is it a "Wow" card?

Vintage Lilac

I just had to stamp today. I tried using a set that I have not touched for awhile but was not on the retiring list. Not much to choose from... Today's challenge on SCS was a color challenge. The colors were Vintage Violet, Certainly Celery and Old Olive. I thought it would be perfect for lilacs. I stamped the bottom off once to get the lighter color

I need to use these trucks as much as I can before they retire in July. I've only had them a month or so and just love them. Today's challenge on SCS was to leave wide open spaces.

Pumpkin Flowers

Today's challenge on SCS was the Ways to Use is Challenge. The challenge was to make a card using a window sheet. This was not my original idea but I guess it was where I ended up. I created this card backwards. I started with window sheet, then did the pumpkin flowers. An after thought was the oval punch and words, then I decided to round the corners. Hey, it got done! I then thought it needed something on the outside. So I colored the flower and spritzed it with water to give it a weathered look and stuck it on with a glue dot.

Stamps: Doodle This, Warmest Regards
Paper: Apricot Appeal, Pumpkin Pie, Window Sheet
Ink: Pumpkin Pie, White Stazon
Accessories: Apricot Grosgrain, Oval Punch, Corner Rounder Punch

Pink Monkey

Well, since I had a migraine yesterday I had to combine Monday's Color Challenge and Tuesday's Sketch Challenge on SCS. The migraine was not due to the fact that I got hit major from the SU! retiring list. I lost 43 sets and 6 wheels not including all the hostess sets. That was over half for me... The retiring accessories list will be announced on June 20th. I tried to use only the sets that did not retire for these challenges. Thankfully I have 3 nieces and a daughter who have birthdays this month. I spilled the brads trying to close the lid, so they hung out for the picture. Believe me I never would of done that on purpose! The monkey is embossed. I used the stamp-a-ma-jig to line up the shadow on the words and the spritzing tool for the background. I also sponged around the edges.

Stamps: Aida Cloth BG, Monkey Business, Loads of Love, Sincere Salutations
Paper: Pink Passion, Basic Black, Whisper White
Ink: White Craft, Basic Black, Pink Passion Craft, Markers-Pink Passion,Pixie Pink
