Stamping Scrapping Anything Goes

P1030730 copy
The moment I saw this stamp I knew exactly what my sentiment would be, because..I’m just a teensy bit…snarky like that and….I’m pretty darn sure Hallmark won’t be asking me to write sappy sentiments for their cards anytime soon either. Winking smile

McGill Sunflower Bouquet…in a Can…

Good morning!
So….. I went a little crazy making Sunflowers last weekend…but it was really fun…and very relaxing. I planted myself in my craft room, turned on Bravo…(Jeff Lewis cracks me up!) and just had fun. There’s a total of 7 large Sunflowers along with a couple carefully placed smaller ones too. To get the shape of a bouquet, a Styrofoam ball was wrapped in a scrap of burlap. The look of draping foliage was achieved by simply using the Dimensional Tree Branch Punch along with the Birch Leaf Punch. My “vase” is an empty Asparagus can. Winking smile

That is it for me today. I’ll be back tomorrow with a Magnolia Card.
For more McGill inspiration and a PDF file on how to make the Sunflowers please stop by the McGill Blog. There are lots of fun things coming up.

Don’t look now…but it’s almost FRIDAY!

One more day and we’re THERE!!….he…he…he…
The other day, I came home to the most amazing box of goodies from McGill. It was like a Mary Poppins bag of sheer heaven. When I eyes focused on the Silhouette Butterfly punch…I could not contain myself. I had to start playing…. fast!!
I have been wanting to make a card using clear card base for some time…and this seems like a perfect time to give it a try.  I used a over head projector sheet, cut to 4 1/4 X 11 and scored it at 5 1/2.

This card and the Sunflower were both created with McGill Paper Punches. If you haven’t had a change to check out the McGill Blog and the wonderful instructional videos, I highly suggest you do so. The ladies over at the McGill Blog are so very, very talented!

MSL Flowers meets SSCC Dog Days of Summer…..

P1030682 copy
So….this is almost…exactly what I looked like last week, while trying to catch my breath….as I walked up the path to Bridalveil Falls in Yosemite. For 26…. I sure felt OLD, but we really had such a fantastic time…and saw the most beautiful sites and I feel so blessed to be able to have enjoyed a vacation this year with both my husband and my beautiful Mom…OH! and Bayleigh too!
This is my card for both the MSL Flower challenge and the SSCC Dog Days of Summer challenge.
Thank you so very much for dropping by!

I am so excited to share this news with you!!!

I feel like I’ve been sitting on my hands, while crossing my fingers AND bursting at the seams at the same time for so long! If you know me at all, you know I CAN’T Type on a good day..so this makes typing… so much more difficult. Winking smile 
I’m so excited to tell you, that I am lucky enough to be able to work with the wonderfully talented McGill Design Team! As you may know…I love to make paper flowers, in fact, I find it super relaxing …and now…I’ll be doing that, but so much more, since McGill has so many more fun punches to work with!

This a very easy to so card I made with the Peony set of punches.

Chilling and Relaxing at the same time.
Comes from the combination of the two words mentioned above.
