One last card

One last card for today that I made for my sister. It also uses a My Favorite Stamps set but it is in the "Who's that Girl" line and is called "How Sweet It Is". My sister is one of the very few people in my life who "get it" when it comes to stamping, card making and crafting. I did this as a thank you to her for her encouragement, support and for all she does for me. I used some patterned paper I got in a pack at Big Lots for the cupcake background and cut out some of the images for the cupcake and the cake which has a little bit of glitter on it. The image was colored with Prismacolor pencils and the chair, ottoman and her dress were paper pieced. I cut the candy bar out of some Halloween paper and only after taking the picture did I realize it has a Dracula face on it. I covered it with a puffy red heart embellie and cut a small sliver of gold metallic paper for the chocolate box (can't tell in the pic) so that it would look like a Godiva Chocolate box. I also used a small chocolate chip stamp that came in the set along with some Versamark ink to make the background paper. This card really is cuter in person. Gotta work on a light box for my cards!

More cards

Here are a few more cards I've recently done for the MFTWSC challenges

Neglected blog

Yes, that's right. I have neglected my poor little blog. Summer has been so busy with work and vacation (a 10 day, 10 state motorcycle trip that was a BLAST!!) and everything else. And the heat...just leaves me exhausted. It's raining a little today but temps are still expected to be around 106 so any relief brought by the rain this morning will just make being outside like being in a sauna this afternoon. But we need the rain!!

I'm just going to post some cards I've done recently with no details other than they use the My Favorite Things Pure Innocence Stamps which I have totally enjoyed using. Everybody around here try to stay cool and to those on the East prayers go out for your safety.
