A few shameless cases

I went over to splitcoast to check out a few cards and get some inspiration for the Razzle Dazzle set. I mean I preordered it and never used it yet, I just couldnt think. For some reason, the primary stamp reminds me of corningware, Can't you just picture this on your casserole dish? Anyway, I went over to splitcoast and WOW is all I can say, I think I favorited almost every single image. WOW, I really did find some inspiration!
I shamelessly cased both of these cards, I found so many that inspired me, but these two I whipped up real quick, I just love how easy they were! You know, I don't ever put any of my stuff on splitcoast, I really should post more often!

Now what??????????


I love my electic sizzix, but, I was just trying to case a card from splitcoast and used the embossing die, I am not sure what I did, but, It is stuck, I tried everything! I thought I made the right sandwhich, but, it wont budge now, it is 3/4 of the way through the machine and its stuck! What am I going to do now? Of course, I dont use the thing for days and now that it is jammed, every card I want to make needs me to cut something! Dang it!

Finding Strength in my craft

I am trying to find strength today by creating. It's good to dream about better
days. I wish I had a few more inspirational phrases to use. When I am feeling down, I find
solace in nature and the simple beauty, like the beautiful sky, the beach, the trees and flowers.
I wanted to use this Martin Luther phrase today, so of course, I used Le Jardin Botanique, the
set that it comes with. For some reason, I was thinking green, so I went with a monotone card


The second card uses the new Razzleberry lemonade DSP, I just cannot get enough of this stuff. I love all the rich colors and I love how they come together so bodly, I just wanted to dream of happier days, Its okay to dream, right?Posted by Picasa

Youve got a friend in me

I was actually able to play along with the Stampin 411 challenge this week. I don't know why
but when I saw the sketch, I immediately thought of the birds from Cheep talk with the
heart in the middle, once I started though, it just didn't seem right without the branch.
So, it kind of took on its own look, a little different from the sketch, but I still think its kinda
cute. I'm off to do my weekly cleaning and hopefully, I will have time to come back tonight
and create another one.
