I added lots of pretty Ginger Blossom Paper, Ribbon, Ink and some brads and out came one adorable little scrapbook (if I do say so myself) for my new little niece! I'm so excited to get it sent off and see what beautiful pictures my sil puts in it.. Hugs

Ginger Blossom Celebration Sketch

This weeks Sketch Challenge over at SCS was just that! A Challenge, I'm not sure if I like how this turned out. This stamp is from Send a Celebration from SAB 2006. I was looking through my stamp sets trying to thin out but realized I love all my stamps! Therefore, I will have to buy a new bookshelf for Stamp storage.. Mine is full! Anyone who has ever seen my stamp room knows that when I started I had TONS of room for Stamp set accommodation. hehe
Anywho, let me know what you think of my card

My Turn!!

Every one's been doing these sweet little onsie cards. So with the Announcement that my new Niece was born yesterday morning I thought that I would sit down and try one out. Plus I was dying to use this darling punch from Sale-A-Bration! I can't wait to send this to my brother and his wife for their new little one, I really hope they like it.. Now to make a special one of a kind gift for the little one!
Big Hugs,

Mickey Birthday!

My dear little nephew adores Mickey Mouse, so I just had to go out and get a Micky Mouse Stamp Set.. This is the card I made him for his Birthday Party today it went in a Huge Mickey Gift bag, with a Huge Mickey Sucker and a Big Fleece Mickey Mouse blanket that I made him.. I was sitting there along with all the three year olds saying "open mine, open mine!" My daughter had to remind me that it was from her too!

Sweet Thanks

This image comes from one of the new Stampin' Up hostess sets. I love the simplicity of it with the new Ginger Blossom DSP.. This was a re-hash of a previous sketch challenge, I'm really getting into them. They make it such an easy process to have an amazing result!
I can't wait to send this one out..
Big Hugs,

Stayin' Busy!

Wow!! (sitting back admiring) I LOVE this set, and color combo! Can you tell??
Here is yet another project using this beautiful new set "Always", however this time it isn't a card! It's an envelope brag book- Roxy did this AMAZING tutorial for SCS and it looked like it would be something I would do, I just didn't know when inspiration would strike.. Wow, did I get knocked over the head with it today!

I printed out some pics of the kids from our last little trip to the Beach in FL, to put in a card to send to my mom.. As I sat down and started getting it all ready to be sent out I got struck with that inspiration bomb! So I decided this would be PERFECT, just like the creator of the amazing tutorial! I can't wait till my mom gets it, I wish I could be there to see her reaction..

Thanks for stopping in,

A little birdie...

Here is another card with my new sets and paper. I've been so excited to get SU! Ginger Blossom paper. I ordered this stamp set last minute on my order and I'm so glad that I did. It's alot of fun, and super cute. I love all the little sayings that are included too! I haven't added a sentiment just yet so that I can use it for anything.. This is such an easy set!
Big Hugs,

Another Sketch Challenge!

So I'm back blogging again, sorry for the downtime. We had a wonderful "mini" vacation in Florida for Valentines Day weekend. I think I even possibly experienced my most relaxed, stress free day ever! ( And that is really saying something!)
I love todays Sketch Challenge over at SCS so I just had to give it a try with my new stamps that just came today! I got my inspiration for the set and colors from Lauraly , she has made the most amazing card. I absolutely love, love, love these colors together. They are right up my alley! Big Hugs,

Hi Friends!

Hey Everyone, I hope you all had a nice Valentines Day. My kiddos are out of school for Winter Break so we took off for warmer weather. My DH travels ALOT for business, so it comes in handy when we want to tag along. I will be back next week with something new to show. Big Hugs,
Tiffany :)

Loads of Love

I woke up at 2 am this morning and realized that I had forgotten to make a card I promised for a new Friend up at my sons Elementary School. I decided right away I would use the new layout from Wednesdays Sketch Challenge, however I fell asleep with all kinds of weird colors and layouts going through my brain, and all were followed by even more bizzare dreams. Go Figure, well anyway, I re-set my alarm clock to wake me up earlier so that I could get this card done and take it to the school with me this morning. Thanks for stopping by,

My First Challenge!

I have always wanted to try the Challenges over at SCS, but I guess I've always been a little intimidated by it all. Well today I turned over a new leaf and got to work. I really like this sketch, it was super simple and between all the sick kids and things that have been keeping me on the go lately, I whipped it up pretty quick! Oh, and I almost forgot to mention, I used the new "Birthday Whimsy" set from Sale-a-bration, and instead of inking the whole gift image, I used my markers and just colored the top half to make a smaller package...

Snappy Swap! { swap spoiler alert! }

Hey Girls, Happy Sunday. I'm home from Church this morning caring for my little one who is sick with the flu.. It's been hanging around our house now for 2 weeks. Yuck!
Anywho, this is the card I did for a little swap I'm doing with a few of my other Demonstrator friends and my downline. I loved my last card I made with this set so much that I adapted it for this SU only swap.

Bali Breeze Set

This next week I'm doing a Valentine Make-N-Take for the Teachers at my son's Elementary School. I wanted to make up something that I could give as a prize to those who participate. So I made another Card Tote and I just had to use my new Bali Breeze paper. It's so delicious, and beautiful with this Satin Ribbon, don't ya think??


Okay so I had 3 lucky gals leave me some feedback on my post "What would you do?" For those of you who missed it, I was in search of help for some Samples I needed to make using some brads I had been sent. I had also mentioned that I would draw a random # today and send out a prize to one lucky commenter.
I just have to say I loved all the ideas that were packed into those 3 comments. So having said that Im going to send out something to each of them!
Here's what they said:

Denise... said...
I would do "Happy Birdy to you", "You're a CUT above the rest", 'You "color" my world', I'm running to catch you, Valentine!, "Hang in there", and "Here's looking at you!" What fun things you have!
Marilyn said...
Wow - Denise said it all!! I was going to suggest "Eyes only for you" for the big eyes. Looks like you have a great stash of brads - almost overwhelming the things we collect isn't it!! I just found your site, and I love it - it is hard to find sites that use mostly SU stuff! I've added you to my google reader so I can keep up with all your creations!
Cindy said...
Cool brads! I would use the scissors one with the bella hairdressing stamp.Cindy
So ladies, EMAIL me with your mailing address and I'll send you out a packet of goodies, including some of these super cute brads!
