Well, I have tried to make several cards for VSN, and my mind is just not there. I have come up w/ NOTHING that is even worth posting here. I'm sorry! I was SO looking forward to creating some spectacular stuff, but there's nothing there.
Hopefully I can just come up w/ something new just so I have a card to post!

Tomorrow and Saturday will be SUPER CRAFTING DAYS! as I participate in the final Summer VSN Challenge on Splitcoast! If you would like to participate, go here and see what it's all about!
It starts at 7pm EST on Friday and concludes for the day a 11pm. Then, Saturday, it starts again at 4EST and goes until 12EST, and each challenge is 45 minutes long. Like one lady said in a post, whatever buzzer you use for your time, it can scare the bejeebers out of you if you're really focused! I usually jump out of my chair! That is if I'm not looking at the timer swearing because of the short time left!
The theme is Book Club, so every challenge is related to the hostess' favorite book. I have too many favorite books to mention here! I could go on for days! I do have two romance Silhouette books that I read a few years ago, and then gave back to the library after I was finished. But, I never forgot those books, and wanted to read them again. I couldn't find them anywhere. So, my sister found them online and bought them for me for Christmas! Isn't she the best??!!!
So anyway, I'll be posting like crazy over the next few days, and then hopefully I'll get motivated to get all of my cards done! I have quite a few things to complete and they all need to be done soon! So I should be posting daily again! Fingers crossed!
Off to bed to rest up for the stamping marathon!
Come join in on all the fun!

I am such a bad Goddaughter and niece! I forgot to send a card/gift to my aunt for Mother's Day! What's really bad is that I didn't even think of it until June! I am spending the week w/ her and our family at the beach this coming week, so I decided to make her a gift and give it to her personally since she lives out of state. I really wanted to use my new Kitchen Sink Stamps because I am in LOVE with them! When I tried to use the daisy set, I couldn't come up w/ a color combo that I liked, so I went back to the hydrangea and the card I made earlier this week. It's very similar, but I don't care! I didn't have a lot of time to work on it, in between packing, babysitting, and just regular family stuff!
I wanted to put the cards and envelopes in a container so they wouldn't get smashed in transit! Since I just received my latest SU! order, I had all of my stamp cases (because I leave my stamps unmounted and spray cling spray on the backs). So, I chose the smallest one, and they fit perfectly! I stamped my favorite label from Label Classics and ran it through my Xyron so it acts like a real label and hold the tissue paper together. The case was so boring, I had to decorate it a little bit! So, I stamped the largest hydrangea and placed it in the corner.
This card did use the daisy set, and was a rough draft for the card pack. But, I wasn't altogether happy and excited about how it turned out, so I am just using it for my aunt's actual greeting card.
Thanks for stopping by!
