Bitten By The Creation Bug!

Hi everyone! I'm feeling so much better! I haven't been able to stay away from my craft corner (I know, that surprises you doesn't it?) Want to see what I've been up to? Take a peek:

This one is a combo of SU! stamps, inks, C/S, and Basic Grey Patterned paper.

This one is all SU! except for that little Prima flower in the very center.

This one is completely SU! Stamps, inks, designer paper, c/s and embellishments.

Have a great day everyone and I'll be letting everyone know in about a week when we can get together again - darn doctor still won't let me drive!

Good bye Aunt Flo!

Well if you're checking up on me ~ Yes I've had my surgery and I'm actually doing quite well!

All in all I don't think the hysterectomy was quite as painful as my three C-Sections were! Of course I don't have a newborn wanting to eat or be changed every two hours, but that's kind of bittersweet too, YKWIM?

Also and this has been the harder part ~ I haven't had a cigarette in over a week now!!!!!!!!

I've never been one to smoke in my house and my kids wouldn't tolerate me smoking around them, but it was a habit that I was having a hell of a time breaking!

{Of course quitting and surgery isn't for everyone, that coughing with staples in your belly is divine punishment and I don't think I'd recommend it unless you are really determined that you're stopping!}

Anyway, I go back to the doc on Thursday to get my staples out and hopefully I'll be able to get back at my crafting, I've got a lot of ideas running through my head but not a lot of energy to get it done!

Check back soon though and hopefully I'll have some new goodies for you to see :)

I got some new goodies from the Stampin' Up! Spring & Summer catalog collection! I am so going to be in T-R-O-U-B-L-E with this book!!! I've never been ashamed to say that I love all the paper crafting vendors and yes sometimes I do use "contraband" materials;) however, I've always been loyal to SU for my stamps, cardstock, inks, ribbons, etc, but Stampin' Up! did an awesome job with this catty! And they are in the process of bringing us even more exciting goodies and opportunities

Look what I've made, then I'm off to make you something else using the new Felt Flowers!!!
This is a Chipboard coaster box with Ginger blossoms designer paper.
This is a "kickstand" card with Berry Bliss paper, Boho blossoms punch and the new One of a kind set.
This one is the new From the Garden hostess set, watercolored in shades of coral and garden green.
Now off to see what else I can come up with!!!

A little challenge

Okay my blogger friends and customers - I have a little challenge for you this week!

My darling daughter says that I am being mean, so tell me what you think by making me a card to see if this can be done! I'm also offering a small prize to the person that DD picks as having the most unique colors and image for this technique!

If you have an SCS Gallery upload your card with the following "Keyword: PP1" :)

If you don't have an SCS gallery you can email your photo to me by January 31st.
Either way, post to this thread or email me when you add your creation, okay?
For my non-SU! friends (horrors!) you can use any image you like, I'll still love you in the morning!

So here's the challenge: Do the Magic Snowflake technique, BUT you cannot use any snowflakes or the color blue on your focal image!

Here's my example:

How do you like the new look?

This is the style that I was going for, I may have a little tweaking to do, but I'm very, very, very happy with it so far!

I made this card for our VSN Sweethearts Anniversary Challenge.
This is Basic Grey Infuse paper with some ribbon and PolyShrink - I LOVE shrinkydinks!!!
