GSG - Challenge card

Before we left for New York I was able to make this card for last week's 'Great Swap Girls' challenge and the SCS Color challenge 'Kraft Skies'.
The GSG challenge was to use at least one of the stamp sets that will be retiring this year. I chose to use one of my favorites 'Artfully Asian'. I am going to miss this set, but I am sure that SU will replace it with another great set.
The color challenge was to use Kraft, Basic Black and Soft Sky (I am going to miss this color! I did stock up on it though). I was really happy with this color combination, I'm sure I will use it again.
Thanks for stopping by!
Supplies used: Stamps~ Artfully Asian.
Paper~ Whisper White, Watercolor paper, Soft Skies, Kraft, Basic Black, Soft Sky DP.
Ink~ Basic Black, Soft Sky, Mellow Moss.
Accessories~ Black Brads, Soft Sky Stitched ribbon.

Vacation in New York

I thought I would let you know that I have been quite lately because my family is in New York. Some of you may remember that my daugther was trying out for the USA U17 developement camp team in April. Well, she did make the team and we are out in Lake Placid for a week. This place is georgous! We started out our trip in New York city for three days, great place to visit but I don't think I could live there. I couldn't believe how busy it is all the time, now matter where you went there were people everywhere. We are having a great time but I miss not being able to stamp. I will try to share some pictures soon!

Enjoy Every Moment BIC18

It's Tuesday, and that means it's time for another 'Be Inspired Challenge'. This week Beate chose this Calico Cake from Martha Steward's website. I decided to go with the colors and the flower theme for my card. Some of you may think this card looks a little familar, well....., I kind of cheated with this challenge, I made another card like this one for another BIC using a different color scheme. To tell you the truth, I think I like the original better. I think I might give this challenge another shot!

Thanks for stopping by!

Supplies: Stamps~ Enjoy Every Moment, Stitched.

Paper~ Bliss Blue, Certainly Celery, Pixie Pink, Whisper White.

Ink~ Bliss Blue, Ballet Blue Craft.

Accessories~ Celery Grosgrain Ribbon, Flower Fusion, Corner Rounder, Clear Ice Rhinetone brad, Silver brads, Clear embossing powder.

Be Inspired Challenge

This week's image for Beate's 'Be Inspired Challenge' is this pillow (below) by Coldwater Creek. I love the black & white look so I was really excited when I saw this pillow. I immediately thought about the 'Love & Happiness' rub-ons and knew I wanted to use them for this card. I don't know about you but I have alot of these rub-ons from the sell-a-bration promotion, I LOVE them. Talk about a fast and easy card,
no Stamping was done on this card.

Thanks for stopping by!

Supplies Used: Stamps~ None
Paper~ Basic Black, Whisper White.
Ink~ None
Accessories~ White Organdy Ribbon, Silver Cording, 'Love & Happiness' rub-ons.
