Let’s skip winter and move on to Summer
OK, I’m ready for summer………..let’s get this snow melted and the temperature heated up!! While I was away, I think that sneaky little groundhog did a number on me and saw his shadow. Brrrrr. Two weeks ago, I had a sunburn…… should have stayed put and refused to come home!!
I’m sure there are places with worst temperatures that our balmy –4 celsius. (But my mind is still on the Cruise Ship, sitting in the warmth of the sun, sipping iced Chai Tea Latte’s.) OK, enough complainin’!!
Today, I’ve chosen to showcase a beautiful Sarah Kay image available at One Crazy Stamper. Lora has so many beautiful images, it is hard to decide on just one to work on. This week’s card is a very simple one – as I’ve been suffering with an ugly cough / cold and haven’t felt very creative amongst the kleenex piles.
A friend (thank you Wendy!!) came to my rescue by sending me this “paper”……….and the colour was absolutely perfect for a quick card not to distract from the gorgeous image (coloured with my favorite, copics) of “Roses Garden” from Stampavie. Head right over there to look at all the stamps Lora has on sale. ------ Wait!!, before you go, please view my card………. It has been a couple of weeks since I’ve done this, so…………. * ta da * . YEA! it worked.
And here is a close up of Rose………………………………………….and of the card opened.
I’ve left the inside blank, so I can add one that will be appropriate when I need a card.
Ok, I’m finished.
You can head on over to One Crazy Stamper and shop til you drop, and then some, with Lora’s awesome prices. See you next week.

Today's post is for One Crazy Stamper, and I just love this adorable image of a Mouse in a Teacup! I colored my image with Copic markers. (R59, R35, R32, R20, YG67, YG17, BG72, BG10, Y19, Y21, W7, W5, W3, W1)
My sentiment is from the Stamping Scrapping Spellbinders Compatible Stamp set called Fancy Accents. I thought the play on words was cute with this image.
Designer paper is My Mind's Eye's Tickled Pink 6x6 collection. I cut one sheet to resemble ribbon and then added pearls to dress it up.
Be sure that you check out some awsome sales Lora is offering! Bildamara stamps being clearanced as well as Magnolia.
Newly in stock items include Whimsy Stamps new release, Penny Black, CC Designs, & Lala crafts. Have fun shopping!

Paper Piecing Tutorial Willow Shopping
I stamped the image again using Memento black ink on two different patterned papers.
Next I cut out just part of the image: in this case it was the shopping bags.
I glued the cut out shopping bags onto my original stamped image.
Repeat the above steps.
Here you can see all three different patterns on the shopping bags.

Tilda with Basket Picking Flowers
Are my thoughts wandering towards daffodils, tulips, forget me nots and warmer weather?? YES! YES! YES!
In keeping with the PINK challenge for February at One Crazy Stamper, my mind quickly thought of pink flowers and what is more appropriate than Tilda with a Basket picking flowers. When I chose this stamp, Lora at One Crazy Stamper had it in stock, but if you really want it, email Lora and she will try to get it for you.
Is February too late to give someone a calendar card?? Is it bad luck?? I hope not. This is a mini booklet of the months for 2011, I made the calendar with Microsoft Excel cut it out, stacked the months and then glued the top together to make a booklet.
