Red Bird in Green

I decided to make a simple card by limiting myself to 1 stamp pad & 3 markers from the same color family. I tried a few times to do this card with the watercolor crayons, but the design is a little to delicate to come out right. Atleast for me. I really like this hostess set with the fine delicate details of the birds wing. This is a set I will be playing with for a while. I decided on making the bird red, as I have been seeing alot of cardinals (the birds not the baseball players) lately. I love cardinals and blue jays. I love the way the light hits them and plays on their colors making them more vibrant. To me, birds are a joy to watch!

Razzelberry Lemonade Scrapbook Purse 2

Here is another take on the Razzelberry Lemonade Scrapbook Purses that I am making for my Stamp Camp this month! These papers are so neat and yummy! I love the patterns and colors combinations!!! Don't you just love how the papers coordinate so well with each other to the point that you don't have to guess what goes together!!! I am liking these so much that I do believe I am going to make a few for the Christmas Craft show that I am in! What mom or grandmother wouldn't like to have one of these filled with pictures of the kids/family from the year??? Or what friend wouldn't love to have one of her own to put pictures in???

We will be using In Colors and the Razzelberry Lemonade DSP. This is one (like the title says) of 2 samples I made. I am really liking this paper. Not to mention the In Colors this year. But who doesn't? This is part of my 4 months of Christmas Stamp Camps. It's hard to believe that Christmas is 3 1/2 months away!!! Time to start Christmas shopping!

Well girls, we all know what time of year it is: ARE YOU READY FOR SOME FOOTBALL??? I've been toying with the idea of a football spinner card since I got the Just Football set from my Big Sis last "Secret Sister" round. And today, of all days, as I am scanning some blogs, I come across someone (squareheadedstamper) who posted some cute halloween spinner cards and that was it! I had to make my card. So to all you wives, moms, and girlfriends of football fans and/or players, of which I am, I salute you during this season!

Sweet Summer

Finally!!! I've gotten one picture downloaded fully! I finally made some of the popcycle cards I've seen around. I really think this would work good doing a scratch-n-sniff. Just think of all the smells you could do with this!!! I think I may just have to make some up! Well, it has been a wonderful summer, I guess if you can call it that here in Iowa! We really had more of a spring straight to fall season this year. I hope that does not mean that we are in for a COLD COLD winter. Although I am looking forward to sledding and ice skating this year! Well, here is to the end of summer!

I've been having alot of problems uploading pictures onto my blog. They seem to be chopped up when I upload them as you can tell from the previous pictures. Please be patient with me as I try to figure out what I am doing wrong. Thanks.
