So Sorry!

I had to make two sorry cards today. I screwed up at work, a miscommunication on my part, coming in at the wrong time, so I felt like I needed to get back into the good graces of the managers. So, I made two sorry cards. The first one I made uses Garden Silhouettes. I LOVE this set! I use it ALL THE TIME! It has a permanent place on my desk! The second card uses Kitchen Sink Stamps Hearts and Roses. Maria of Kitchen Sink Stamps made a beautiful sympathy card and posted it on her blog. She stamped roses as if it was her background paper! What a genius idea! I always want to highlight them, or make them stand out. By using them as a background, she made them stand out a different way! Go over and check it out!!!

Have a wonderful day!

Happy Stamping!!!

Come to the Cabaret over on Splitcoast tonight and tomorrow!

It starts tonight at 6pm EST and continues until 11pm which will be the last challenge of the evening. Then it starts again tomorrow at 12pm EST and goes until 11pm for the last challenge.

MY CHALLENGE is at 1pm tomorrow!

So come on over and have some fun with us!

If you've never been to VSN, what are you waiting for?! The purpose of VSN: To gather together virtually and stamp the night away! Or, in this case, the weekend! This way you can gab and stamp and have all your supplies at your fingertips!

Each challenge is 45 minutes long. So, at the beginning of each hour, a new challenge will be posted. You then have 45 minutes to complete it. Then in the time remaining, you can post it to the gallery for that particular challenge, post a link in the challenge thread and maybe even have time to comment on other challenge submissions!

Make sure that when you upload your challenge submissions, that you use the correct keyword which is located in the challenge description. This way your card will be placed in the proper gallery!

Come on over and visit us at the Cabaret! Come and make new friends! Come and expand your creative horizons!

Happy Stamping!!!

My new friend, Heather Schlatter, is having a HUGE Blog candy extravaganza on her blog here She has hit 5,000 hits since she started her blog just 7 short weeks ago! I think it took me several months to hit that milestone. So, congrats to Heather! Go on over and see how you could win some really cool stuff!!!!!

As for my blog, as soon as VSN starts, I can start posting my creations. Then, next week, I'll start back to posting a card pretty much every day. I've been all consumed with VSN, and making stuff like a mad woman! You really need to be a part of VSN (Virtual Stamp Night) on Splitcoast! It's SO much fun, and all the ladies there are so awesome and wonderful and helpful! You'll love it and be hooked! Like me! :)

An early Christmas gift!

Can you recognize this bottle? It's something yummy to drink! A Starbucks Frappuccino!!!! Yum-a-licious!
I saved this bottle, thinking that I would use it for something at some point! And that time has come! I will be putting mints in here to complete the gift.
I used Christmas paper from either last year or the year before! I sponged Blue Bayou all around the edges. I used an oval nestibility to make a window. The snowflakes are from the Snowflake collection that My Favorite Things had sold earlier this fall.
Thanks for stopping by!
Have a great day!
