A lil Spring Cleaning

Hi there,

It's a beautiful Saturday here in Cali and my card seems to reflect what I have been doing these past days. Cleaning, that's right I have been cleaning and gardening and everything that has to do with spring. Although tedious, it's always nice to get it done. After cleaning the house yesterday, I managed to get some gardening in, it was a lot of fun, I love gardening but I think I may have pushed myself a little to much as I went to bed exhausted and I have two large blister on my hands from shoveling. No pain no gain, right?, at least the garden is beautiful and the little weeds that were beginning to pop up are all gone.

Anyway's on to todays card. As I said it reflects what I have been doing. I used the InStyle Stamps image Darla who is doing a little bit of dusting.


I hope you have enjoyed my card today, now it's time for me to get out there and enjoy the weather, maybe wash my car and do a little more cleaning and gardening.

Card Size: 4 x 5 1/2
Paper: SU Welcome Neighbor Designer Series Paper Pad, Turquoise & Orange Cardstock
Ink: Copic Markers
Accessories: K&Company Adhesive Gems, Sheer Ribbon, & a Button

Thanks for stopping by today!!! Have a great weekend!!! Take Care!!!

A girl can never have too many shoes!!!

Hey there,

It is so so true, a girl can never have to many shoes and  I am so one of those girls who loves shoes, can't get enough of them!! I'm always buying new shoes, just recently I got this pair of Guess Heels, aren't they to die for?? I just love them, I was eying them at Macy's for the longest time and then they disappeared so I asked an employee and she told me they had three left and she just so happened to have my size. How excited was I!!! They were 30% off and then I had an extra 20% so I got a super good deal. Oh and about two weekends ago I wore them to a wedding with a blue dress and I kept getting comments left and right about my shoes, lol it was great, but it's to bad that  I don't have a picture to share with you cause my boyfriend was not in a picture taking mood, but maybe someday soon I will get dressed up again and make sure to where my shoes and then I will show ya all

Alright so on to today's card, which also has some super cute shoes on it!!! This card uses Heels, a new image from InStyles Stamps that should be available soon since the redesign is all done. So if you love these heels as much as I just stay on the look out so that you can add them to your shoe collects, cause we all know we can never have too many!!! lol

InStyle Stamps Monthly Sketch Challenge

Hi everyone,

I hope you all enjoyed you Easter Sunday!!! I had a wonderful time hanging out with family and friends, mostly hanging out inside because the weather was nasty and rainy but it was still a great Easter despite the weather!!

I promised you all I would be back today with my InStyle Stamps Sketch Challenge card, so here I am to share it with you. As I said in last Saturdays post I made the wrong card and left town for the weekend so I was unable to make the correct card. I would have had the card done earlier but today I came down with a nasty cold and I have been dragging my feet all day, I didn't even go to my night class, EKK, I never miss school, not even for a nasty cold. I didn't want to share my germs with my group, even though we had a project to work on today, I felt bad but I don't want them getting sick too.

Alright so on to my card if you need to check out the sketch for this challenge go to this post otherwise here is my card.

InStyle Stamps Monthly Sketch Challenge

Hi there,

I can't believe it is already April, this year has gone by so fast, next month I will be graduating, it's all so surreal!

This week I've been on spring break so I went home for break and before I left I hurried to make my card cause I knew I wouldn't be taking my supplies with me. Little did I know I was working on next weeks Color challenge instead of today's Sketch challenge. So for today I just want to share with you today's Sketch Challenge, sketch:

and then I want to direct you to the InStyle Stamps Blog so that you can see what the other DT members have in store for you. I plan to post my card ASAP, I should be back home on Monday and I will try my best to get my card done between classes, so come back next week to take a peak at my card.

Sorry for my mistake! Thanks for stopping by! Have a great day!!
