Make a Card Monday - Easter card

Hello Stampers!  It's Make a Card Monday!  Today I decided it was time to make an Easter card.  Stampin' Up! doesn't have any cute Easter sets out now, so I decided to make one using the We Must Celebrate stamp set from the Occasions catalog.

Here is the card that we will be making:

We Must Celebrate, Inkin With Dink

In the video I will show you how I made the card.  I will also show you how I cut the stamp set apart so that each animal is a separate stamp!

Here is the video:



In the end of the video I announced that I would be giving one of these cards away, so leave me a comment and I will draw and give away one of these cards!  You have until 9:00 p.m. on Tuesday to leave your comment!  Thanks for stopping by!

Photos, photos, and more photos!!

Hello Stampers!  When I woke up this morning, I didn't have anything planned to do today.  Then I decided it would be a great day to organize and print out photos for my scrapbooking.  Now when I say organize, keep in mine that I have photos on my phone, desktop, laptop, camera, and in dropbox!

So not I have spent the last 9 hours trying to organize photos!  And I'm still  not done!  What a huge task!  I had no idea it would take me this long!

Anyway, I have nothing new to show you today.  So I thought I would just show you the last picture I took with my phone!

Inkin with Dink

On Thursday morning I came downstairs to my dog barking like crazy!  There were two squirrels playing in the tree outside our kitchen window.  Emmie had jumped up on the bench to watch them out the window, and she didn't like them out there!  They kept coming to the branch closest to the window and starring at her while she barked like crazy!  Silly dog!

Thanks for stopping by!  I hope you enjoyed the last picture I took!  Leave me a comment and let me know your pet's name and something silly they do!

Waterfront birthday

Hello Stampers!  Once I started playing with the Waterfront stamp set, I just can't stop!  It is so easy to make such great cards!  I make all of the birthday and anniversary cards that my father-in-law sends out every year.  There seems to be a lot of masculine cards on his list, and they are always so hard to make!  Today I sat down to play with the Waterfront stamp set and the cards just kept coming!!  So fun!

This card has to be one of my favorite of all of the ones I created today!

Waterfront stamp set, Inkin With Dink The colors that I used for this card are Crushed Curry, Marina Mist, Pacific point, Garden Green, Tranquil Tide, Sahara Sand, and Soft Suede.


Thanks for stopping by!  Leave me a comment and get your name in the drawing for a FREE card every day!  I didn't post yesterdays winner because of the blog hop, but the winner was Judy T.  Today's winner is Patti P.!  Congratulations ladies!
