My goodies :-) and some stamping

I've been a little remiss in getting some RAKs posted but better late than never, right? My laptop is still out for repairs so it's hard to do some non-work related stuff on the computer right now. I do want to upload and post a little more and I hope to get my laptop back soon.

The cards are from my wonderful SBS3 sister, Heather Huggins. You should definitely check her blog out. Her coloring is amazing!!!!!!!! I wish I could color as nicely as she does. She's also doing a ribbon share that you might want to check out. I'd join in if I didn't already have ribbon coming out of my ears :-)

The goodies are from Malieta at Life's Simple Pleasures. She's one of my blogging buddies and is super, super sweet. Go check her out, you won't be disappointed.

Finally, I got my winnings from the grand opening at MCC. Look at this loot! I wasn't expecting so many stamp sets!!!! Woohoooooooooo!!!!! These sets have been on my want list since I've seen them at Verve Visual and I'm glad that I won them--free stamps rock!

and believe it or not, I do stamp every once in awhile :-) I joined Twisted Chick's ATC swap and here's my entry. They're going postal later today. The base is Textured River Rock and the diamond shaped pieces on the side are Ruby Red. I stamped the ladybug and sentiment with Versamagic Red Brick and Pink Grapefruit and the dotted trail withClassic River Rock on an embossed Very Vanilla Rectangle. This is matted on a scalloped Groovy Guava rectangle. The little piece of chipboard is cut out from the Cuttlebug Asterisk die and is sponged with Pink Grapefruit ink. There's a clear dew drop in the middle of it. This piece is mounted on dimensionals and tied off with Groovy Guava double-stitched ribbon. I think these ATCs are pretty cute and do admit that even though they look relatively simple, they took more time than my normal cards do. The die cutting took some time plus trying to sponge the little flower embellishments and attach them without them ripping was a bit of a pain :-)

Thanks for visiting!
