Have you ever...

started stamping, had no idea where it was headed, and just kept adding til it looked right?! Well, this is my latest example of just that! I felt like stamping and just started pulling things out! I'm having a great time with this stamp set, Perennial Favorites. I love that it has paper that matches perfectly. I will definately get a lot of use from this set!

I only have one color Stickles and I wanted the Stickles in the middle of the Primas to be the same monochromatic green as the rest of the card. So, I put a little Stickles on a piece of paper and added True Thyme reinker (only a LITTLE bit) and mixed it up. Voila! Pretty green Stickles!

This is the card...

I'm going to use for the CNY get together in November! I'm just going to change the colors and paper to the 'winter' paper in the same package. I get to order a few supplies this weekend! I *heart* getting new stamping supplies!

Glittery Dragonfly

This card just makes me happy! Peale and I were watching a movie and I just kept getting ideas for this card in my head. I had to get up and get it down on cardstock!

I received the dragonfly and the scalloped circle from the IRAK group on SCS. I colored his wings with markers and then just covered him in Crystal Effects and dumped a whole load of glitter on him! He is so sparkly!

Got the itch...!

For the last two weeks or so, I've been concentrating on scrapbooking instead of stamping. I have a HUGE stack of photos to get into albums! But, I just HAD to make a card last night! Stamping is definately an addiction.

So, this is what I made. Pretty simple lay out but I really like the colors. This is one of my all time favorite sets, but then again, lilacs are my favorite flower!

Jumping back on the SCS challenge bandwagon!

My favorite stamping site, splitcoaststampers.com, has daily challenges to keep our creative juices flowing (they are always helpful to get your lost 'mojo' back!). This is the first challenge I have participated in for quite awhile. I had a blast and am really happy with the result!
