Hey Chick!

This stamp set is so cute.

My Stampin' Up! demonstrator attaches a hand-made tag to each and every order.  This is actually one of those tags that was attached to one of my orders.  I trimmed the tag down a wee bit so it would fit on a card front, and re-purposed it into a card.

Dontcha just love it?!

All supplies Stampin' Up!

One Wild Ride

I wanted to take 2 stamp sets that don't really go together and make them work together.  And...everything had to be current Stampin' Up! (not retired) to be used in a card swap.  So, here I joined Kinda Eclectic and One Wild Ride and Blushing Bride card stock and Ink.  Result...a pink-themed motorcycle card!

To achieve the starburst in the background, first stamp the motorcycle in black, then cut out a motorcycle mask from some thin copy paper, then stamp the starburst over the masked motorcycle.  If you don't mask it, it looks weird with the pink stripes through the bike.

9 Blocks of Scrap Paper

I had a bunch of scrap pieces of coordinating papers, so decided to put them to good use.  I love these colors together. This is such an easy way to use up your scraps using a 1" square punch and the SU Postage Stamp punch - or you could use a 1 1/4" square punch if you don't have the postage stamp punch - or, you don't even need a punch...just a trimmer.

I love Horses

I just love horses.  I've never owned my own horse, but I ride whenever I get the chance...which, sadly, isn't very often anymore.

Anyway, I believe it was a friend who sent me a link to a card made with one of these sets.  So, of course, I had to buy them all.

I gave this set of note cards to a friend who also loves horses :)

Upsy Daisy

I've haven't put anything on my blog since November...just lost the mojo to do the uploading, etc.
