Secretary's Day- Card #2

Don't you just love the Doodles from the Spring Mini? This card I used the large flower from Doodle This. I used my aqua painter to color in the flowers with pretty in pink and yo yo yellow. I found that the aqua painter softened up the yo yo yellow to make it more pale. I used pink gingham ribbon, the tag punches, yo you yellow and Gable Green Cardstock. Of course, I used Gable Green brads for the center of the flowers! The "thanks so much" is from the Clear $1 Studio G stamps. Sorry the image is blurry.

Secretary's Day

I needed to make two cards for the secretary's at my daughters school and one for the secretary at my school. Of course after doing a search on SCS...I came up with some ideas. Here is one of them..... This one is using Only Orange, Pixie Pink, and Tempting Turquoise SU cs, white CS from LSS, Orange Gingham Ribbon from walmart, Pixie Pink, Tempting Turquoise, and only Orange SU ink. I used sponge daubers for the flowers. I love the way they come out. I learned this technique from my SU demo. I bought the sponge daubers at JoAnns. The sentiment is from the Clear Studio G dollar stamps available at Michaels. More importanly, I used the Doodle This flower for the flower image.

Will I Ever Get to Stamp?

I am starting to wonder if I will ever get to stamp. I always have something to do or somewhere to go. I have stamp sets not even used and many barely used. I can't wait until summer when I can "Stamp It Up" all the time. I am excited I am going to a SU party this week, maybe I will be inspired to Stamp Late this week. Working full time, two kids, going to the gym,tutoring online (my partime gig to support my addiction) and housecleaning seem to occupy all my time.

This week, I have Friday off, but I am having a HUGE yard sale and my daughter has a Girl Scout Sleepover for which I am chaperoning. :(

Here is a simple birthday card I made using my new cuttlebug. I have cuttlebugitis. This little bug just makes the cutest most awesome cards. I used Bravo Burgundy Stamping Up cardstock and Night of Navy. I think this makes an awesome MALE birthday card. Nothing girl is on the card: no ribbon, no pink...nothing cutesy. Just plain and simple!
