I've had this stamp set forever but I rarely use it. It's one of those I had to have but haven't thought of any good ideas for it =) The stamp set is from Victorine Originals. I came across this company on eBay when they were a new seller and they have some amazingly cute stamps. Anywho here's a use for it!

A Cute Cake

So yesterday I thought I was doing so great on my sketch blogs, I was rockin' and rollin' gettin some cards made. Then I realized I was looking at all the sketches from a week ago.....ah fooey. Oh well, some cute cards came outta my craft room and here's one. A few months ago my DH brought home literally a box of Stampin Up stamp sets.....yes I have a wonderful husband! Apparently a guy at the swap meet was selling them for his wife. I got 20+ sets for $80 not too shabby huh?! I've been trying slowly but surely to use the stamp sets and this one one of them.

World Card Making Day....A Day Late

Happy World Card Making Day! (a day behind) I did remember thanks to a text from my DH's daughter =) Here's the three I made....

I bought this Penguin stamp on clearance after Christmas last year and have just been so anxious to use it, you can't really do Christmas in least I can't. You can't really see but I used flocking on the Santa hats so that they are fuzzy. I discovered my Cricut is coming in very useful i.e the Christmas light embellishment!

I don't think I've ever done a wedding card before. We just don't know anyone getting married but I thought I'd try one, anywho....I added glitter to the diamond for that extra "sparkle" that every lady loves =)

Brown in a card for me is very different. I don't know how I feel about this one but I do like the way the blue stand out. I used the brown because it matched the ribbon I had. I have a whole drawer full of ribbon that I'm trying to use/get rid of. Ribbon just isn't me, but I'm trying =)
