I love this sketch. The paper is from Imaginisce, "Teacher's Pet" My New Pencil Box and (No) Passing Notes. I just love it! I used SU's Rose Red and the star was left over for a Christmas Project. Inside it will say STAR, because she really was.

It's raining....... makes it really difficult to take pictures in "the Cave" as hubby likes to call it. Since it took me a week to make this card, I just wanted to get it done. It's actually for my daughters first grade teacher. The most wonderful teacher I have ever met. I am making her a baby album for her son as a thank you gift, so we will be seeing her in a couple of weeks!!! The last day of school was heart breaking, she will not be coming back...... (sniff) and she was bawling, as were her students. It was very sad.

What another great sketch from CPS!! I just love this October Afternoon Splish Splash sheet. I made another card with the same materials yesterday. There's another baby coming in a few months so I thought I would be ahead of myself. That never happens.

How lucky for me that this weeks Mojo Monday sketch was just perfect for a baby card I needed to make!
As soon as I came across this October Afternoon paper (ducks in a row)I knew exactly what I was going to do. This card practically made itself. I used SU's Certainly celery ribbon and card stock. The large duck is from SU's "Wagon full of Fun". I also picked up the rub's which went with the October afternoon sheet of paper and used a little rub on, on the oval punch. The sentiment is from Papertrey Ink's "Everyday's Classics".
WOW! What a day, first I was on my blog and realised there was a lot of activity, I had a sneaky feeling......so I jumped over to Kristina Werner's blog and I WAS PICKED FOR LAST WEEKS TOP 10!!!! Yahoo!!!
Then, as I was still on Kristina's blog she posted this weeks color inspiration. WOW!! again, these colors threw me man. I even called Ceecee for some advice.
Then I remembered I need a boy's birthday card for tomorrow for my daughter to bring to a party. "Bonne Fete" means Happy Birthday. I remembered I had this Bella robot. Robot's are rusty, right?
The rest just came together. I used CTMH's ink, Grey Wool and Autumn Terracotta and SU's More Mustard (which BTW is one of my favorite colors). I stamped the border with CTMH's Boutique Borders and the sentiment is also CTMH's Thoughtful Script in French. The Robot is from Stampin Bella he is Kilo Watt.
And now my craft room is upside down..........

I didn't think I would have time to do this weeks Raspberry Suite Challenge. But when I went to check the mail today, I had received a box and in the box was a stamp set from Paper Trey Ink. A gift. For a valued customer for their 2nd anniversary. I had to use it right away. It's called "Everyday Classics"
I stamped the flower in CTMH's Sweet leaf ink onto the same color paper and the with Versa Mark and black embossing powder stamped the flower and the sentiment. I've been stuck in the past without a sympathy card and with no pink in sight I went with the sympathy sentiment. The black brads represent the chaos when you lose a loved one.

I had fun making this card for Kristina's inspiration. I liked each monster the same and after I stamped them in the different colors they looked like a bunch of friends sitting together. The stamp set is from October Afternoon "Night Light"

This weeks Mojo Monday is a really cute sketch. This card literally took me five minutes. This card was inspired by a 12x12 sheet I picked up at the local SBS by Anna Griffin. Of course I had to use SU's Tart & Tangy set. The ink's are CTMH's Sunny Yellow and Citrus Leaf. I had to go with some green cause I love lime too.
It seems lately there has been alot of lemons going on around here. But of a positive note I feel I have to share with you Canadian's a Canadian Web site www.scrappingreatdeals.com (Ceecee shared with me). Not only did she have a special where you didn't pay shipping, I got the box and to my surprise was an extra gift and some Worther Candies. How personal is that!!! Great experience!! Thanks Sheila.

Wow did this week get away from me!! Everybody's soccer started this week (mine too) and I worked all week. So, to make a long story short I've got this box of fishing flies I am determined to use. I used Taylor's sketch and the fly with some paper hanging around and this is what I came up with.
