Free Set - Time Well Spent
Blogger's Challenge (Nov. 16)

SU! surprised its Demonstrators by sending us this free stamp set. It is called Time Well Spent and is super cute! I needed some cards, so I decided to use this set. The Blogger's Challenge this past week was a color combo - Chocolate Chip, Pumpkin Pie, Old Olive, and Brocade Blue. We could also use a neutral color. I've been busy and haven't been able to participate in the past couple challenges, but was determined to do this one. I took the Old Olive pad and did the Direct to Paper (DTP) around the edges of the card.

Be sure to check out the other Blogger Players for their creations!!

CS: Chocolate Chip, Old Olive, Pumpkin Pie, Brocade Blue, VV

A Muse Blog Candy (Erika's Blog)

You'll want to stop over at Erika's blog for a chance at A Muse blog candy. I have been wanting these alpha stamps of theirs for some time. Something about the polka dots I suppose - I just think they are too cute!!

Any way - be sure to go post and be entered for a chance to win them. While you are there, check out Erika's work. She has super cute designs posted.

I'll be back, hopefully tomorrow, with a card/project to post. I went cropping this past Saturday, but as with all my cropping adventures....I do more talking, shopping, browsing, etc than actual cropping. I don't mind though - I just love getting away and being with friends!! Oh yeah - it didn't help that I forgot things for 2 of the projects I brought to work on. Doh!!

Wow - a week already!

I can't believe a week has already gone by! I'm afraid to blink anymore - whenever I do, a day, week, month passes me by!! I have so many things to do and what seems to be not enough time. UGH!! I know - there are tons of us out there that feel this way.

I'm also heading out tomorrow for a 1-day crop with some girls from the Go. Be Creative message board!! I can't wait - it will be so much fun!! Now - if I accomplish one layout...I'll be thrilled!! I usually go to crops and do more talking than cropping, but I don't mind - I just love getting away and hangin' with friends!

Ok - so enough chatter, here is a card I made last week with some new stamps from a new stamp company. This is Hanna from HannaStamps. So far, they have this set (But I need it) and a holiday set (Tis the season). They have more coming out - as I said - it is a new company. The owner (Kristi Ferro) is great and is also the designer of these sets that depict her DD. So, be sure to check them out!! The site for HannaStamps is, however, it isn't quite ready, so all traffic is rerouted to Kristi's blog.

Stamps: But I need it (HannaStamps)
CS: Bordering Blue, Close to Cocoa, WW, Basic Grey Mellow
Ink: StazOn Black, Bordering Blue
Other: Brown Grosgrain Ribbon, Black Gelly Glaze Pen (Sakura), various SU Markers

I paper pieced her dress and 2 of the shopping bags. I had stamped the greeting, but it was too light, so I went over it with the black glaze pen. I also did Direct to Paper with the Bordering Blue pad on the edges of the card.

I seem to collect more than I actually use it, but isn't that all part of the fun?!! What paper do I love more than Basic Grey?? Well, that would be SU! paper of course!!
