Well it's been a thousand years since I posted anything.  I got a little inspired this morning--or maybe just bored.  Anyway, I've been cruising stamp blogs a lot lately and decided to take this challenge:  Fab Friday
So this is my entry. I don't even know if I'm doing this correctly! I'm such a newb!

I used the Wetlands set for the first time. The colors are Crumb Cake, Always Artichoke, Summer Starfruit, and Very Vanilla.  That's Comfort Cafe DSP. I loved that paper! Still hoarding it. Cut the background out with my Sizzix scallop. Fussy cut the Canada goose.

Wednesday, May 25, 2011 pix. well, guess i'm doing something wrong.

and here are some more cards that may or may not show up....i need remedial blog help...

it's not like i haven't been busy...

sure, i've been stamping.  but i've been a bit pre-occupied with school.  this whole 9-5 scene (or 7:30-2:45) really cramps my style.  is it "cramps" my style or "crimps" my style? whatev.  these are card sets i made for a silent auction at school.  at least, i think they're here...they don't show in the preview and it's been so long since i posted, the format has changed! here goes...

Shadowbox Ephemera

ephemera:  items designed to be useful or important for only a short time, esp. pamphlets, notices, tickets, etc.
anything short-lived or ephemeral.
This little shadowbox is sort of a memento of my vacation.  I altered a pencil-type box from Oriental trading company and made a frame from cardboard.   

Clean and Simple

A clean and simple card usually uses a neutral base and isn't afraid of leaving a lot of it un-embellished.  This one is for a splitcoast challenge; cas80.  I used sahara sand and purely pomegranate on very vanilla.  Yes, i still have some of that old satin ribbon left.  I bought a lot of it when it was on sale.  The stamp set is Silhouette Sentiments which is a hostess set.

Here is a set of 5x7 pictures.  One is for everyday and there is a Christmas image that can sit behind the everyday image till Christmas time.  I love the quote on the everyday.  It's Emily Dickinson; "Hope is the thing with feathers, That perches in the soul, And sings the tune without the words, And never stops-at all."

something fishy

Here is a little non-card.  This little basket has an acetate window and the treat bag is filled with Swedish fish...which, you may as well know, I cannot control myself with.  They're just. so. good!  The little fish stamp in the corner says "best fishes" and no, I didn't give this to anyone...I ate the fish so I couldn't!
