Thinking of You


Just a quick post today on the last day of my holiday mini-vacation!  Tomorrow, it is back to work time.  All good things…

So, I decided to play along with a challenge from Splitcoast Stampers.  CAS 125 001

This is for CAS125.  CAS is clean & Simple, and this challenge was to use Red, White & Black.

The stamps are from the Just My Type set, that is available through my A Muse Studio webstore.

Colored the typewriter with my Copic markers.

You Da’ Man!–July Blog Hop


If you are participating in the blog hop, you should have come from Pamela Fredrickson blog and if not, then you should start from the beginning with Samantha's blog until you come to my blog. 

Mustache 002

In the spirit of the 4th of July holiday, I broke out the Red, White, & Blue!!  I used A Muse’s super yummy – shimmery red & white paper.  Oh, how I wish that the shimmer could be seem across the screen.  Added a small piece of blue and white and a piece a ribbon.

You know, when we have blog hops, I think that I have been trying harder to make something “fancy” to impress ya’ll…but, really, this card is more of my norm.  And that is what first drew me to A Muse – the catch phrase, “think simple, think A Muse”.    A Muse Studio’s “Foiled Again!” set is perfect for the clean style, and heck, it made me smile :)

Used Stazon to stamp on the shimmery paper, and googlie eyes from my stash.  Seriously, some of you also have googlie eyes floating around there craft rooms, right? right?

Hope everyone has a fabulous 4th!  Drop me a comment – and let me know which style of cards you like best, clean & simple – or more “fancy”.


Now on to your next stop Analyn Mattero blog.  And Enjoy!!
