Mom's Bday Card, SC 189 & CC 179

My Mom's Bday is at the end of August and we are away for two weeks and come back on her Bday, so I had tonight only to get it done. I used this weeks sc for the layout and my newest stamp sets. Stampendous - Posie Doodle I picked up this past weekend down in the states and Little Paper Shops- Still Hot Granny! Poor Mom is having the hotflashes like crazy. We always blame everything on the H.F. (hotflash), so I just had to have the saying from the Granny set.It took way to long to get it done. Between kids coming in and out and getting ready for bedtime and the phone ringing. It's done!!!


Stamps - Stampendous - Posie Doodle, Little Paper Shop - Still Hot Granny and SU Linen BG
Papers - Eggplant, Green Galore (I didn't have Olive), Teal and Gesso paper made by Mel. Great stuff to colour on.
Inks - Eggplant, Grn galore, Teal, Blk stazon
Accessories - Nesties, Paisley cuttlebug, SU ribbons, Turq. Purple and Green gem brads, aquapainter, small corner rounder

Enjoy these last few weeks of summer! I'm off on two weeks of vacation and then back from my babies to start Kindergarten. Boo hoo.. yeah.. I'll cry behind my sunglasses. ;o)

Thanks for stopping by!

SC188 Hula Penguin Girl

I just realized I had forgotten to post this last card on my blog. I used my newest paper and stamp that I purchased from The Paperworks Co. I have only ever done a couple purchases online and this company is one of them. I've had great service from this co. and they have great prices. I kept it really simple on this one! I'd love to get a card made for this weeks cc., but with going away for 2 weeks this Sat. I doubt I'll find the time! Happy last couple weeks of summer everyone!
Papers - Basic Grey Euphoria Bless paper, Orchid Opulence, Celery, Cool carib, PiP and WW
Inks - Black stazon, Cool carib, creamy caramel
Other stuff - Turquoise stickles on bikini top, aquapainted the bikini top first. Masked the penguin to make the water, sand and sponged some carib for the sky. Added a couple paper flowers and a purple gem brad for the flower in her hair. Then I added some paperpiercing.
