the little card that could *whimsy stamps*

This card did NOT come together easily. You'll see the struggle in the video. 
Creative problem solving, right?

I lifted Beverly Cole. I loved her stamping and the embossing. I don't use my embossing folders enough! I used my Swirly folder from Cuttlebug.

Digital stamp by Moon Cookie Gallery for Whimsy Stamps. Colored with Prismacolor pencils. Ribbon from Michael's and the flowers are from Petaloo, Daisy D's. The pattern paper is from Independence Day by GCD Studios.

My beloved corner punch, topped with bling.

just like my mommy

My sister and I had a scraplifting party last weekend. She chose this LO by Robin Shakoor for me to lift. Love Robin's work!

Papers from Blissful by Authentique. Love the wild color scheme! All my usual suspects are here: 
rub ons, stamping, brads, and journaling.

The small letters are Authentique and the fuzzy chipboard "mommy" is by MME, 
from one of the Lush collections.

"school essentials" is a stamp by Junkitz. The quote sticker is Glitz Design and the critter is a sticker by American Crafts.

I always journal with a Micron pen. I've used gel pens and fine tip markers but I think I've finally settled to always using Micron. My handwriting and the felt tip seem to get along well. The square brad is from Ad Lib by BoBunny. The quote is from the manufacturer strip from Authentique cardstock. Saw my BFF do the same thing on one of her projects. Guess I liked the idea :)
