October 23

Happy Sunday!

Continuing in our pink format this month,
Girl Friday Laurel has created a
darling pink get well card
using our Pretty Posies stamp set.

 Really love the watery look to the color she added.

And I really love the bit of sheen from the silver embossing.
It's such a cheery looking card and I'll bet it will make the recipient feel happy to get it.

Have you checked out our SALE section?
Have you seen our NEW release?
Lots of yummy in our shop :)

Happy Saturday!

How's about a happy birthday card?
Girl Friday Kimberly created a
really fun one layer card...if you don't count the sequins *wink*

She used Holly Jolly Borders and Shenanigans.

I love the fun way she blended her rainbow of colors
and I think the fun Holly Jolly stripes are super cool!

Enjoy your weekend!!

and filled them with pink seed beads!
Love this fun shaker card!

Happy Saturday!

Not too long ago Girl Friday Lisa
created a spectacular pink snowflake card.
Well guess what?
She's done it again!
She's back today with another gorgeous pink snowflake card
using Must Love Snowflakes!

To create this card I used the Must Love Snowflakes Stamp Set and stamped and heat embossed the snowflake images around the outside of my cardbase forming a frame. I then used a blending tool and a light pink ink to fade some color towards the center of the card. I then stamped my sentiment in a gray ink and finished the card off with twine, jinglebells, and sequins.

Only 2 more days til we start showing you the new October stamp sets!
There are 3 of them
and I'm feeling pretty proud of myself for creating them :)
Join us on October 17th!

Happy Friday!

Today we say farewell to Girl Friday Diane.
She leaves us today with a spectacular tag card!

I love this!
She used Tin Roof to stamp on Posies Fri-Dies and Loving Blooms.
She also cut Loving Blooms from glitter paper (you know I loves me some glitter paper!)
and Casual Trees Fri-Dies in white,
and layered them all onto Tag Buddies
which she double cut in both white and more of that scrumptious glitter paper!

The big cool sentiment from Wonderful Words finishes off the pretty tag
that fits wonderfully onto the cardfront.

Diane, the time went waaaay to fast!
I've loved having you and your wonderful style here
and I'll miss you!
Best of luck to you!

Only a couple more days til the October release!!
