More cards and my annoying internet!!

I was going to post this, right when I got home from work (approx 6 pm), but my internet was down again. You have no idea how much it has been down these last couple of months - absolutely crazy...and annoying! Sasktel was here last week, and gave me a new modem, so the problems should be ending soon (fingers crossed).

So I am finally up and running, and wanted to let you know what a great person and blogger Kristine from Ink Something is!!! You see, Kristine and I shared some images a couple of months ago. I sent her some stamping bella images, and she sent me a bunch of whipper snapper images, I believe. Anyways she felt that she owed me some more images, so she just sent me a ton more. I also have now gotten 2 beautiful cards from her and a bunch of cardstock cuttlebugged!! What a great girl!! I want to share some of what I received with you, so the following are the cards and some of the papers she sent to me.

Aren't I the luckiest girl ever!!! Thanks so much Kristine. Your cards are beautiful. I love the layout on the card with the cute duck! And your coloring is awesome!

I am so lucky!!

I wanted to share with you, what I received in the mail a couple of days ago. First of all, I belong to a yahoo group called Bellaholicsanonymous. If you want more details email me!! Anywho....I signed up on a RAK list(random act of kindness)...and received my first RAK this week.

It is such a beautiful card!!

The wonderful card was made by Janet Berezowecki who is from Manitoba. Thanks Janet, this gorgeous card was much appreciated!!

I also received another surprise in the mail that day, but will have to let you know about it later, cause darn it anyways, it's time to go to work. Gotta make a living to support that Stamping habit, ya know!!

Wonderful friend

I am not going to do much of a post today, because I am sick with a viral infection, that has my neck and back so sore, that I can't do much. But I didn't totally forget about you guys, I just haven't felt like making cards or sitting at my computer.
Here is the card, made for my best friend, Michelle's, birthday. The girl image is actually part of a piece of scrapbook paper from the rusty pickle.

Stamps: SU wonderful favorites, SU baroque motifs

Inks: Versamagic jumbo java, SU really rust, SU basic black marker

Papers: Rusty pickle - lets do lunch, imagine that textured cardstock, basic grey 6 x 6 scrapbook designer paper from Michaels

Accessories: SU Distressing tool and punch tool

Fluffles and watermelons

I am sorry for not posting more often, it seems like something always seems to come up lately.

I DO have a couple of new cards for you....
The first one is for Julia's sketch challenge on Splitcoaststampers "The Dirty Dare" - I was supposed to upload this card over a week ago...thank goodness the girls there left the gallery open for a few weeks for us always late girls!!
Stamps: Stampendous grasshopper fluffles, SU fancy flexable phrases
Paper: Imagine that textured cardstock, Rob & Bob Studio superslab 8, SU whisper white cardstock
Inks: SU basic black, Versamagic chalk ink - jumbo java, prismacolor pencils and odourless mineral spirits
Accessories: may arts ribbon, sakura stardust clear gel pen, the paper studio - bubble.a.bilities
Tools: SU corner rounder, Sewing Machine, SU distressing tool

The next card was made with one of my new stamps that I bought on my last trip to Minot, ND. You have no idea how MUCH I LOVE living only 1 1/2 hours from rocks!! It is closer to Minot then it is to Regina, so why not go to Minot...especially with our dollar being as good as it is right now.
Stamps: Stampabilities - hop it - seed shooter, SU riveting
Paper: SU whisper white, Imagine that textured cardstock, unknown paper from a stack bought at Michaels
Inks: SU basic black, Versamagic chalk ink-jumbo java, prismacolor pencils and odourless mineral spirits, SU watercolor crayons
Accessories: May arts ribbon, SU metal edge tags, SU basic black marker, SU black embossing powder
(here is a little tip for not emboss something and then in that area, try to blend your prismacolor pencils with odourless mineral spirits!! The mineral spirits make the embossed area smudge everywhere. I found a blender pen and the SU watercolor crayons, work way better!)

Thanks again for your kind comments, and I hope that you enjoy the rest of your summer!
