Hello out there!

Hello everyone! I have missed you ALL!!!!!!! It seems like an eternity since I last posted and I can't tell you how happy I am to be back. My trip away was amazing and I have a few photos that I plan to share with you but first...the random generator chose number 57! Congrats goes out to Andrea Hays who said
I love black, pink and teal these days. I am just drawn to those colors. Thanks for the wonderful giveaway. I love seeing people's color choices...I always get so inspired!
Andrea please contact me with your snail mail addy so that I can get your goodies out first thing on Monday morning.

Oh that was fun! I just love giveaways. I was actually looking at my DP scrap stash the other day and wondered if there was somebody out there who may not have many (or none *gasp*) who would like to give my scraps a home I would be more than delighted to send them your way. I plan to do that every once in a while because seriously when on earth am I going to use them all? The first 3 people that contact me asking for DP scraps will receive a care package a la Alli!
EDITED TO ADD: Thank you for your interest I will be contacting the first three people who either e-mailed me or posted to my blog. I am so delighted the scraps have found a home!

I can see that I am quite chatting today *lol* I have so much I want to share. I think it is called blog deprived...anyways there is a gal that I just adore...her name is Kristina Werner. I know I have mentioned her before but if you haven't visited her blog lately you just HAVE to see her cute 2:58 minute video on how to make a card. Isn't that fun??? I love the moment the music stops and she says "Don't you love the smell of StazOn?...It smells like almond extract?" I know what she means and NO I don't like it *lol* but that is because I don't like the smell of almonds.

Okay, enough chit chat...and onto a card.

I am truly honoured to be working with Kim Hughes, talented stamp designer and papercrafter. As many of you know I have been anxiously arriving my Pretty Birds set and while I was away what do you think arrived? You guessed it. I had a great time playing with this set and cannot wait to play some more.

Open Card

Closed Card

paper: Prism Papers
ink: Brillance Graphite Black (Tsukineko), Whisper White (SU!)
stamp set(s): Pretty Birds (Kim Hughes available at CHF)
accessories: Copic Ciao Markers, Corner Rounder (SU!)

Ok and now for some fun I am picking up a few pumpkins for the kids...I don't have a close up of me in colour only black and white...and being in a sea of pumpkins in black and white just isn't the same!

Have a wonderful weekend. I have lots more photos and projects to share in the next few days so stay tuned!

Because I love to stamp and you do too!

Ali, I just want to let you know that I love your blog and check it every day! I would love some DP if you are giving it away. I am just starting to get into making cards with DP and am finding the possibilities are endless.

Hi Alli:

I would love to have some of your DP scraps!! I don't have any yet and it would be an excellent way for me to preview any you have from Stampin' Up. (grin...I don't let anything go to waste).
