Then I returned home to find these!My new stamps from QKR have arrived! They are awesome. The whole team is very excited and can't wait to play with our new stamps. We are also planning a blog hop for the beginning of April...so check back for more details on that one. I also added some links to the side of my blog with my fellow DT members, and the QKR Stampede site so you can get some of these great stamps for yourself too! I am off to go frost a cake, and clean for my DD's 3rd birthday tomorrow. Have a great rest of your weekend.

I also went with only 2 colors for this one. I thought this was the perfect brown...color of a brown paper bag...just like I like my coffee =). The PP is from Papertrey, and the ink is SU.
Now...onto the fun news! I have certainly having a lucky week. Last night I was in the parking lot waiting for the stamp club I just discovered to start (The new church we are going to has a stamp club! I joked with my hubby it was another sign from GOD we made the right choice picking this school/church combo), well they had a sounder on the radio to call and win thingy. I called, and WON! I am sooooo excited I won tickets to go to Brad Paisley!!!!!! The nice thing is the concert is in June, and our anniversary is in June, so we are going to use the tickets as part of our anniversary celebration. I haven't been to a concert in 10 years...so this will be fun.
Well, back to my morning coffee, and off to one of my MOMS groups today...it looks like a good topic, and I hear the speaker is wonderful.

I thought it came out cute for my first time using this. I cut out the pieces in white, and sponged them with green and purple. I also cut the shadow out for the background from purple CS. There is a little cherry on the cartridge also, so I cut that out and sponged it red. I layered it with foam tape. The base is blue CS, and I added the sentiment which is from a TAC set.
Well I realized last night that I only have a week left to get the little baskets done for my DD's class, so I will be working on them tonight. I will post a picture of all 10 of them after I have them done and filled. Thanks for stopping by, and have a great day.

Did you happen to notice my baby likes dinos....lol. First...yesterday I finally got my cricut machine! I recently got one from ebay, and the nice UPS man brought it yesterday! So, I needed to play with it. One of the cartridges that came with it had a paperclip, so I decided to cut out my own "clip" for the challenge. I also cut out the little tag with the #3. What a fun machine this cricut is...I can't wait to use it more...I am sure it is more fun to use when you don't' have a migraine...lol. Anyway, I stamped and colored the image with colored pencils. I cut it into and oval shape, and layered with the red ribbon, green CS, and the Dino PP. I used a sentiment from a SU set. I am sure my baby will love this...because she has already seen it, and was thrilled...lol.
Well that is it for today...thanks for stopping by and "listening" to my rant. I can't wait to spend my weekend with my cricut!

That is it for now. Thanks for looking.
My second white ink experiment! I again used a darker color kraft CS. I used stamps from the TAC set springtime garden. I thought this set was very cute. It comes with this little butterfly and bunny with sign you see above, as well as some other birds and bunnies stamps. I added the sentiment "Think Spring!" to the sign with a white gel pen. Last I added some lavender ribbon and bow.
I like the white ink a lot. I think it has a neat look to it. I also purchased some black CS yesterday, so I will do some playing with white ink and black CS next. Thanks for stopping by.

This card was made by my daughter Natalie...age 5. She also used a stamp from the same TAC set.
They got the biggest kick out of making cards with mom, and love the idea of taking part in a challenge blog for kids!

The images on the paper are smaller then the acutal images. Aren't they adorable????!!!! I have to say these stamps are great quality too. Nice thick rubber, and they are cling mounted.
Thanks for stopping by.

Isn't she just sooooo cute???!!!! This image is from The Greeting Farm, and is called HG Laundry. I started by using the MOJO Monday Sketch this week, which can be found HERE. Next I combined two very similar challenges which both involved circles. First the Cupcake Craft Challenge this week was "Round & Round", which means circles...as many as possible to me! Second, Club Anya and Friends blog is celebrating the new release of some new Greeting Farm stamps with a challenge. This challenge was called "Seeing Spots"...which also means CIRCLES! I was so excited to be able to combine 3 challenges in one card...this is not something I do often...lol. Well, I used some background PP from TAC that is all different color circles. I then cut the image out in a circle, and colored it in with colored pencils. I added some circles/spots using the cuttlebug to the green and yellow strips of CS. I added some round yellow buttons to the corner. Last, I cut out one of the big circles from the PP, and layered a smaller circle on top, and hand wrote the sentiment. I thought this would be a really cute card to send to a fellow mom who is having a bad week. Since we all have them. Well that is all for now. Thanks for stopping by.
