I used my new stamps from Waltzingmouse Stamps for the plaid background. The stamp set is called Off Beat Backgrounds and it is so much fun! I then pulled out my Vintage Picnic set from Papertrey Ink and my Prismacolor pencils (which I have not touched in YEARS!) and used them for the center image. I have been meaning to try my hand at coloring with my pencils for a while now. I do NOT want to try Copics as I know I will want to start collecting them too......and I do not need another obsession! After using the blender pencil I was pretty happy with my results.
Ink: Black, Orange Zest and Enchanted Evening (PTI)
Ribbon: Enchanted Evening (PTI)
Stamps: Vintage Picnic and Sign Language (PTI), Off Beat Backgrounds (Waltzingmouse Stamps)
Nestabilities Label Four die (Spellbinders)
Thanks for looking!

This one uses the stamp set Signature Christmas from PTI, a Fiskars border punch, pattern paper from Basic Grey, Labels One Nestabilities from Spellbinders and a felt embellishment from Making Memories ( soooo cute!).
This one uses PTI stamp sets VintageLabels (which coordinates with the Labels One Nestabilities) and Peaceful Poinsettia, Labels One Nestabilities die, and a Fiskars border punch.
Well, that is all from me for today. Have a great weekend everyone!

The image, number and scallop were all cut with the Cricut. I used a hole punch along the edges of the scallop oval and layered it all on some old Chatterbox paper.
Thanks for looking!

There are so many darling images for cards and layouts. I think my next project is going to be a plate though. I found some plain glass plates at Dollar Tree and I am going to etch one with an image from this cart. I just have to make the difficult decision of which one to use!
I have been doing lots of crafting the past week so I will post a new project tomorrow using a Timeless Template from Papertrey Ink. Hope to "see" you then!

I made a darling box for candy but forgot to take a photo of it before I gave it away. You can see one here though.......I bought the template for the box from Papertrey Ink. I just love Lauren's templates! The teacher we gave it to said she was never going to open it....ha, it had Godiva chocolates in it. I bet that didn't last long!

DS graduates from high school on Sunday so I made a few cards (one for him and a few more for his close friends). I used my new stamp set from Papertrey Ink called Star Prints......LOVE it! Here is the boy and the girl version. Inspiration came from here. Now I just have to come up with another card for DD who graduates from college in 2 weeks. I don't think she would want the same one her brother has.

I can't believe it has been almost three months since I updated this blog. I hope to be much better in the future. Today I am posting the projects I did on NSD. I participated in the challenges that Robyn did over at http://thepinkstamper.blogspot.com. She did great projects and had very generous giveaways. I had high hopes for the day but alas I only got 2 projects done and then I pretty much copied Robyn's examples. Oh well, it felt good to be scrapping anything at all. I have been so busy and my hobby has just fallen by the wayside. Thanks for looking!

As many of you know, I am card challenged. I just cannot seem to make any that I am happy with. A few weeks ago I needed several sympathy cards and I was determined to make them myself. I went up to Archivers and Jen gave me some great ideas. I am actually fairly happy with the way they turned out so I thought I would post them here for Jennifer and everyone else to see.
