A Rose Card for Mom

My mom had a birthday and since she absolutely loves roses, I thought the giant rose from the Rose Wonder  stamp set was perfect for her card. But what truly added the finishes touches was the So Detailed flower wrap! So easy, so simple to put together, it’s amazingly beautiful! Oh, and yes, she loved it!

The Details:

  • Afraid of Glitter?  Many crafters are afraid of glitter and I’m not afraid of it, but my OCD does kick in when I use it.  I sometimes feel like it’s the plague (lol).  The Red Glimmer paper will not leave glitter all over the place like lose glitter, but it will leave little glittery spots around the card (as seen in above photo).  But nothing to cause your heard to do a 360.
  • Retired Items.  We all keep retired items in our stock and the two items I used were the stamp set (Spanish Teeny Tiny wishes) and the glitter ribbon. What items do you keep that are retired?

Thank You for the Tea Party

Thank You1

If anyone has noticed, I have pretty much used all but one of the stamps from Tea Party stamp set this week.  Why is that?  Because I want to show you that when you decide to buy a stamp set, you should buy it for its versatility.

When you are choosing which stamp sets appeal to you, always look at how many stamps come with the set.  This way you know you can make up to 4 or 5 cards out of one set.  It's a great way to maximize your hard earned dollar!

If you don't have a catalog and you do not have a current demonstrator, I am more than happy to send you one for free.  Simply fill out a form here.

I chose the Real Red ink and Red Glimmer Paper because it made the vanilla and black colors of the Modern Melody designer series paper card pop with a little bit of color as suggested by a couple of my blog readers. =)

You are the reason I continue this blog.  It's already Friday night here and I'm just now catching up on today's post.  It was a very busy day today and I'm feeling a little tired.  One more day of work and I get Sunday off.

I'll be taking my Physical Fitness Test in two weeks and as always, I'm nervous.  I usually score in the high 90's, but it's been my goal to score 100%, which seems almost impossible (I M Possible… LoL)… but I have to run in 11:22 min to make it happen.  Like my momma tells me… "we shall see said a blind man." =)

As mentioned before, I'm running the Deployed Air Force Marathon 10K.  I refuse to do the full marathon or even the half.  It's against my beliefs… LoL. Humans were NOT born to run more than 6.2 miles at a time.  That's my story and I'm sticking to it.  I figure I'd train for both and kill two birds with one stone… not literally… I love birds.  Who came up with that saying anyway!? LoL

Just because you are reading this… you get Stampin' Up!'s Old School September Wallpaper for FREE…… after you click HERE select ADD TO BAG and CHECK OUT.  It's that easy!

Again, happy Friday to you… have a safe and wonderful weekend.  Thank you so much for visiting.
