My new PTI Stuff

I made this card using my new stuff from PaperTreyInk.In March they release 2 more colors of their Perfect Match line of coordinating papers, ribbons and inks. LOVE this stuff!! The stamp set I used is called Out on a Limb also from PTI! I cant say enough good things about this company!
On a side note: My sister and I took our girls to see Josh Turner and Carrie Underwood last night. That girl puts on the best show! Love her! The best part of the concert was her encore. The last time I saw her she sang Guns N Roses Sweet Child of Mine so I was really hoping she would sing more of their songs! She really rocks it! It was getting towards the end of the show and I was getting a little disappointed because she hadnt sang any. But she saved the best for last. During her encore she sang Cold November Rain (I think thats the name) and also Paradise City. ROCKED them!!!! It was the best part of the concert! I would definitely go see her again!

Dropping You a Line..

Good Friday Morning! Is anyone else glad its friday? I also am! I cant complain though. The week went fairly quickly. My exciting news for the week is that I bought a pair of jeans a few weeks ago a size smaller and I wanted to fit into them by my trip to Nashville. I put them on a few nights ago and they fit! YAY for me! :) So I went and bought another pair of jeans last night to do the same thing with. They are the same size but a different brand and cut. I have always wanted to buy jeans from Old Navy but have never been able too. Well now I can. I just have to do a little more work for them to be comfortable for my trip. :)

I made this card using a kit that came in a swap on the Bella yahoo group. Hopefully I havent shared it before because I didnt make anything new last night! I colored the Bella with my watercolor pencils and blender pen.

Hump Day

Good morning everyone! YAY its Wednesday!! Halfway through the work week!! I dont think I have shared this card with everyone. Its just a simple little card that I didnt add a message too so that I could have it ready to send whenever I needed a card. And yes those are TAC stamps again! :) I know Danni will be proud of me!

Happy Birthday Card

Oh my! Is that another TAC stamp! Danni has me on a roll!! This Happy Birthday stamp is one of TAC's gift with purchase stamps. You get a free stamp with every $30 in purchases. Right now through the end of April you get double the rewards so you get 2 free stamps with every $30 in purchases. You also get double hostess awards which means double the half price items and double the hostess sets!! Cant beat that!

RAK From Sheri

I received this RAK from Sheri on the PTI rak group over at the Paper Trey Ink forum. This is a card for my anniversary which is coming up at the end of the month. I think its a beautiful card!! Thanks Sheri!

Blessings Card

I made this card last night with my last little bit of creativity for the weekend. I got the layout for the card off a card I saw on SCS. I think its a very pretty card done in all pink! The saying stamp is from TAC. The whole saying actually says "Blessings to You" but I just inked up the blessings part. The pattern paper is also from the Lilly Ann collection from TAC.

33 Days and Counting

I am 33 days away from my trip to Nashville! My friend Haley and I are going down there in April!! We have been planning this trip since October. Back then we didnt think it would ever get here!!! Now its only 33 days away! :) We are both super excited!

I wish I could remember this ones name!

I cant for the life of me remember what this set from TAC is called. I cant find it in the current catalog but I may have overlooked it! Maybe Danni can help me?? I love the bright, cheery colors of this card. I didnt put a saying on it so I could use it whenever I needed to and just add a saying. Or use it just for a notecard without a saying. I colored the image with my Copic markers that I got in group A of GinaK's marker club.

On a side note, I went over to Ami's tonight. Well we went to dinner first and I think I embarrassed her a little with my mouth but anyway. I went over there because she had some pictures from a Kenny Chesney concert that we went to back in 2003. I have been looking for my own set but dont know where the heck they are! I needed them because my other friend is in LOVE with Peyton Manning and Peyton was there that night on stage with Kenny. He acted like he was playing the guitar but I dont think he really was. :) Anyway, Ami found them so now my friend is very happy that she has a picture of her favorite quarterback. :)

YAY!!! Its Friday!

The week started off so nice! My boss was gone from Monday to Wednesday! He was back yesterday and boy could ya tell! The office was silent and their was a tension in the air. So I am super glad its Friday! This is another card that I made for Danni's TAC challenge. I used the On Safari set again. Its been fun playing with never used sets! And now Ami has bought a hot knife so maybe I will get all those TAC sets cut apart. :)

Another TAC Challenge Card

This is another card I made for Danni's challenge. This is a retired hostess set from a couple years ago I think. I just had to have it but I JUST cut it apart to make this card. Silly! The saying stamp is a $1 one from Michaels.

Heather and Jason's Card

My coworkers daughter and her son are both expecting. She is really excited to have 2 grandbabies on the way! Both due in I believe September. This card is for her daughter Heather and her husband Jason. Image is from StampingBella and the saying is a $1 stamp from Michaels.

Danni's Challenge

Danni challenged me to make 3 cards using TAC stamps this week. I kind of admitted on a yahoo group that although I have 263 TAC sets, I rarely EVER reach for them. I am always using other companies stamp sets. So I took her up on her challenge and made 4! So there. :)~ Thats me sticking my tongue out. :) So be watching for the rest of them throughout the week. This first card uses the set On Safari from TAC. I cheated a little and used a saying from My Favorite Things. I couldnt resist the saying!! its a great little card for you spouse! :)

Knocked Up?

This is a card I made for my co-worker's son and daughter n law who are expecting. Ryan, the son, always says "knocked up" and his dad hates that saying. So he wont like the card but Ryan and Sam will get a kick out of it! Hopefully. The stamps I used are StampingBella and also My Favorite Things.

Say a quick prayer for Patrick...

Patrick Swayze's publicist confirmed that he has pancreatic cancer! He is currently undergoing treatment. Just say a quick prayer that he pulls through it. This has to be one of my all time favorite actors. I had to reaplce my Dirty Dancing VHS tape with a DVD because it was completely worn out! This news made me sad.

Another school day...

The school is closed again!! Is winter ever going to be over? We got alot of nasty stuff yesterday! There is plenty of ice under the snow so the drive to work should be fun! I made this card using my new stuff from PaperTrey. I used the stamp sets Little Lady and also Out on a Limb. It was a quick and simple card. I also used PTI's stampers select white cardstock. If you have never used this cardstock, you really must!! It is the nicest cardstock I have seen in a very long time. I dont think I will use anything else anymore. And its only $6 for 40 sheets! Cant beat that price!

Masculine Card for Ami's Challenge

OK so this really isnt a "masculine" card but it was for a boys birthday! So I am counting it as a challenge completed. This was just a quick and easy card that I threw together before leaving for work yesterday. His birthday was yesterday and we were meeting for dinner right after work so I knew I had to get it done before. Nothing like waiting until the last minute! Image is from SU. I think its an older saleabration set.

True Friend

Good morning to everyone. Just thought I would post a quick card that I made. It was a very easy and simple card. I used Basic Grey pattern paper and a Basic Grey tag that came with the paper. Added some ribbon and a saying from PaperTreyInk and the card was complete.

Saturday Morning..

YAY! I love Saturday mornings! Except when I have so much to do I cant sleep in!! Like this morning. I have to get some cards made this weekend. I have a challenge card for a yahoo group, a guys card for another challenge, and then Danni challanged me to make 3 cards this week using TAC stamps since I admitted that I rarely grab those and use them. I know I have at least 300 TAC sets and rarely use them. So I have lots to do. I went and got a new keyboard last night at Wal-Mart! its so nice to not have the keys sticking together! New rule in the house. The kids are not allowed to have drinks anywhere near the computer!!

This is just a quick happy birthday card. It came in a card kit so it went together in about 5 minutes because everything was cut and ready to adhere together. Gotta love that!

Have a great Saturday everyone!!
