Open for Inspiration

Good Morning Friends!  Today I am challenging myself to see what I can create with just a pattern?  This is my first try at this so bear with me.  I just stamped random stamps and random colors, but pretty colors and I wanted to see what I can make with that!  

They are in no particular order, but hopefully I can make something really cute with them.

Weekly Deals Time!

Don't forget about our weekly deals that are happening right now!  They are good right through to May 4th!!  Stock up an Save! 

Thankful for the Little things

Today I am enjoying and so very thankful for the beautiful sun and the rays on my shoulder!! God is so good!  Even when it rains!  We've had rain here in Colorado for like the last two days.  Rain like that here makes folks real nervous.  Our dry land doesn't soak up so well and we flood quick.  But thank God!  Today is beautiful and sunny again!  

I love sharing my little cards here on my blog with you.  Here are two cards that I've done for a friend who is always there for me and she's a real sweet friend.  Why two?  I'm keeping one, for my stash!! I usually do two cards so that I can have one to show or use at a later date! 

This one is made from Rose Red cardstock.  It looks like Strawberry Slush, but it's the beautiful Rose Red! The Painted Petals is the stamp set I used and I just love how it came out!  Thanks for looking! 

Enjoy your day and thanks for stopping by! What are you thankful for today?

Confession Time!

I have a confession to make..I have never tried to make this card because I was always afraid it would be too hard. Not sure why, but thats what I thought.

So last night I watched a few videos and took diwn sone measurements to try and make this pretty card for my friends. Yep, when I'm all done I'll have 6 done..

My colors are Crumb Cake, Marina Mist, and Wisteria Wonder. They make such pretty projects when used together!

Well here is my first ever try at the Flower Pot card.  What do you think?!

Simply Amazing! Stampin Up!

Try This: Oreo Balls

Award Winning Oreo Balls

Oreo Balls Ingredients
8 oz fat free cream cheese, softened
1 pkg (34) Oreos (not double stuffed)

Instructions Twist ...Oreos and take apart. Scrape cream from cookies and put into large bowl. Add cream cheese to bowl and cream together. Put remainder of cookies into a Ziploc bag and seal. Use a rolling pin to finely crush. Add finely crushed cookies to the creamed mixture and stir. Roll into 1-inch balls and chill. Melt almond bark. Dip cookie balls into almond bark (will not do) and place on wax paper covered cookie sheet. Let set for 30 min. and enjoy!
