Thank You Aileen!

Gosh...i've posted a bunch of stuff today did't I? I should be getting ready soon to go the Boyz 2 Men concert....I haven't even figured out what to wear tonight!! AHHH!! Well, just a last one for today. I hope everyone is having a great Valentine's Day with their loved ones.


Here's a card I made for one of my GF's Aileen. She gave me a birthday gift last week, & here's my thank you card to her! The stamp is from one of SU!'s new single stamps. Embellished with the dew drops (my new favorite emebelly), along with a ribbon & bazzill flower with a bling brad in the middle of it!

Bridal Shower Favor

My friend Lei, emailed me and asked if I could do her a favor of making bridal shower favors for her best friend's surprise bridal shower. So I said sure! She told me her colors were pink and brown (2 of my favorite colors!) here it is!

I used the Sizzix XL die cut - Shaker Box to make the favor (per her request). Then I decorated the outside using the new embossing folders by Sizzix (Bridal Shower). For the brown background, I also embossed it using the Cuttlebug (swiss dots) embossing folder, and then added a ribbon for a touch of elegance. Something simple and easy to do! Enjoy!

Valentine's Day card from one of my GF's

Here's a Valentine's Day card that one of my gf's made for me & my hubby. And we received it today for Valentine's Day!! How thoughtful of her! Thanks sis!!


Here's a card I created as a sample for our (Lynn & I) class in January. Theme was Valentine' Day.

My first OCS...

Linda & I had decided to do valentine's day card swap. I received mines yesterday, and I only sent mines out yesterday (my bad! hehe). Here's the OCS card she sent...isn't it lovely?! Thanks Linda! I already mailed yours out, but not sure if you got it yet. So I won't post my OCS card til' next week (after Linda receives it).

Well 4 more days til' Valentines Day! I think i'm just about red & pinked out for valentine's day cards...but don't get me wrong...I LOVE PINK!!!! Speaking of which, I still need to finish up Linda's card to send out...ACK!! I just need to add a pinch of sweetness to it...hehe. Hopefully I can get it out in the mail by tomorrow!! Sorry Linda! You'll get it real soon. (I hope) husband tried to surprise me today by purchasing tickets to the BOYZ II MEN concert coming up on Valentines Day at the NBC Arena. That should be fun! Anyways, he "TRIED" to surprise me, but like I told him before, it's hard to surprise me because I eventually find out before things happen. He just gotta try harder i guess...OOPS! Sorry hubby for ruining your surpise for my valentines...LOL!! Love you for trying hard!!

Anyways, we headed out to the box office at the NBC to purchase the tickets, and man did we spend money for that! I'm hoping that the seats we have are good seats...its in the lower part of the upper level balcony (the one with 2 rows only) close the stage. No one's in front of us so I won't have to worry about tippy toe'ing or windshield wiping my head side to side just to enjoy the concert..hehe. That's the disadvantage of being a shorty...hehe.

Well enough about that....I purchased another clear stamp set today from Inkadinkado called "Kids Quotts" from Scrapbook Heaven...I just had to get it, its so adorable! You'll see...its quotes that kids had made, and Inkadinkado geniously turned it into a clear stamp set! I'll post the pix up of the stamp set tomorrow! Til' then, GOOD NIGHT!!!

Stamp Pad Storage

I woke up this morning, opened up the front door, & found a big USPS box sitting outside my door! I was so excited, because I knew it was my order from! Last week, I was browsing around online for some storage solution for my limited "craft" room space. I'm always tempted to buy the SU Color Caddy, but always thought to myself to budget & spend wisely. I'm also in process of re-arranging and down-sizing my "craft room". I'll probably end up selling some of my craft stuff that are new and slightly used. I'll post up more info later if I decide to sell some things. cut to the chase, I found me a workable Stamp Pad Storage solution! I found it on & it's called the Poratink Standard Case from Best Craft Organzier . They also have the Portaink Dual Swivel Traveler from Best Craft Organzier. It is very similar to the SU's Color Caddy. The Stampin' Pad fits perfectly inside! There's also a storage area on top for the ink refills, etc. If you have other stamp pads such as Versa Mark, Brilliance, Staz On, etc. --there's a standard ink pad insert that you can purchase sepeartly (if desired) -- and because they're smaller than the Stampin' Pad, you can put the inserts in the case so that the ink pad doesn't go all the way in the back where you can't get it out.

I couldnt wait to put my new storage to here it is!!
