Vintage Vogue

Still in a pastel/tropical mood.  I used tempting turquoise, naturals white, melon mambo for this card.
I also embossed the paper with small dots, but it's hard to see in the picture.

Scrapbooking Using MDS

I love using MDS to create scrapbook pages. It's so easy and if I don't like something -- with a click it's changed - in the page here I originally was using Real Red as the accent color, then switched to White and finally ended with Bashful Blue.

A picture of my and my brother waiting to catch the bus.  Enjoy....

Tropical Party

This stamp set is my FIRST unmounted set and I wasn't sure how I'd like unmounted -- but can I just say I LOVE it. It was so easy to line the stamps up -- so for my money -- I'll be buying more unmounted sets -- I figure I will save some money and can buy more stamps!

I used Naturals White, Tempting Turquoise, Only Orange and Melon Mambo. Used Old Olive for the palm leaves.  Hope you like it....

Pun Fun - Happy Bird Day

Since the 'Storm Monster' was rolling in, the dogs and I headed for the basement --safe and sound, and since I was already there, I thought I'll make a couple of cards.   When I said to my sister today, "I think I need to place an order before June1st", she said, "You're becoming a collector again -- get down there and make something!"

I used Tempting Turquiose, So Saffron, Regal Rose, and Naturals White for the colors and Ink. Used a small strip of DSP to coordinate.  I used  the scallop punch on the edges and put 3 brads for an accent. I used Pun Fun and Well Scripted Stamp sets.

D is for Dog Card

I used the stamp set 'D is for Dog' to create this card for a friend. The challenge was to use the current 'In Colors'. I used Melon Mambo,  Bermuda Bay (my favorite) and Black. I used an embossing folder with my Big Shot to add some texture to the card.
