Remember this guy! Well you probably do if you are around my age. The Sock Monkey and Sock Monkey Accessories stamp sets on page 83 of the Stampin' Up Idea Book and Catalog brings back lots of memories. Here he is eating bananas as fast as he can swallow. This is a cased card.

I have not done a baby card in awhile and for no reason I decided I wanted to do one. I used the paper piecing technique on this card. First you stamp the carriage on the background paper and then you stamp the main carriage on patterned paper and cut out adhering it to the already stamped image on your white background paper. It gives a great look. I used the Jewel Rhinestones on the wheels for a little extra pizzazz. Speaking of pizzazz, I used the Designed Series Paper (DSP) and Stitched Poly Ribbon Pear Pizzazz for this card. Stamp Set used is Stampin' Up! Fun and Fast Notes. Don't forget the BIG SHOT for the scallop square too. If you would like to place an order please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Our baby girl had growth on her crippled leg which turned out to be cancer. Dr. Morris took it off this week but YaYa had to have a cast to protect her foot while it heals. Her brother, Luke, cried like a baby when I took her to the Vet's Office. She is doing great now. She can run right along side of Luke. She just pushes off with the yellow case.......should I say Daffodil Delight cast. LOL Always thinking Stampin' Up!!

I absolutely love PEARLS, don't you? I can't get enough of them. This card uses five of them. This card is made of the following; Card Stock: So Saffron, Marina Mist, Baha Breeze, Wild Wasabi, Certainly Celery, and Very Vanilla Ink: Old Olive Embossing: Flower Burst, Perfect Polkadots Punch: Modern Label Ribbon: Chantilly and of course Basic Pearls. Beautiful card by Linda Shuttleworth.

My Upline, Denise Foor, made this beautiful Cherry Cobbler birthday card for me. I love red. She used the Stampin' UP! Bigz Dies, Lattice, and Designer Series Paper. The BIG SHOT was used to emboss and then cut out the red medal embellishment. And the Lovely Letters Alphabet set just make the whole thing perfect. Thanks SIS, it is one of the prettiest cards I have ever received. You can see more of Denise's creations on her blog, www.denisefoor.blogspot.com

Showing allot of pink shades this month. Must be all those May Flowers. This is a cased card using the Square Lattice Textured Embossing Folder. Also used are the Boho Blossoms and 5-Petal Flower Punches which are on page 200 and 201 of the Idea Book and Catalog 2010-2011.
After our Group Meeting in May we went to Pizza Hut and celebrated my birthday. What could be better than celebrating with other Stampin' Up! Demonstrators and having Pizza and Cake!! Those in pictures are Sue Lepako, Denise Foor and myself. Missing was Tina Crawford.

I went to Dress Barn last week and saw this Hanging Holder. It has 30 plastic see through pockets on each size so it provides 60 pockets total. Guess what, the Stampin' Up Embellishment holders fit perfectly in the small pockets. A total of six larger pockets are across the bottom so I put my large buttons and medal embellishments in those. The Holder is $19.99 at Dress Barn and if you have a 20% coupon well then it's cheaper. I have mine hanging on the outside of my door with an over the door dress hook. Now I have everything in plain sight for me to remember I have (lol) and use more often.

These two cards I received as swaps but the ladies failed to include their names on the back as requested so I cannot give credit where credit is due. I wanted to share these beautiful Mother's Day cards since the special day is just around the corner. The second card uses the Build a Blossom stamp set and Square Lattice Textured Embossing Folder plus the Scallop Trim Border Punch. Of course I love the colors used as well, Daffodil Delight, Tangerine Tango and Wild Wasabi Card Stock and Ink.

SAB is over but now is the time to start using some of those great free stamp sets you earned last month. Here I have used the set Sweet Summer with the In Color Peach Parfait DSP and Card Stock, and Stampin' Up! Pastels including Daffodil Delight and Old Olive. There are three little Rhinestones in the corner.

The Summer Mini Catalog includes the NEW Strength and Hope Stamp Set used here with the NEW Designer Series Paper (DSP) Beyond the Garden shown on page 23. Stampin' Up! is donating $2 to the fight against breast cancer for every stamp set purchased. This set can be used in so many ways. Pink for breast cancer, red for heart disease or as a general greeting card as I have done here. Hints for the colors used in this card: It is Tempting for me to see Daffodils everywhere I go this Spring and to feed the birds Crumbs as I make my travels. LOL

Happy May Day!! This card I cased directly from the Summer Mini which starts today, May 1 and runs through August, 2011. The stamp set, Bold Blossom, is on page 7 along with a copy of this card. I changed it up a bit with a few minor differences and substituting the white Grograin Ribbon for the stitching. I really like the NEW Triple Layer Punch. Here I used the Blossom Bouquet Triple Layer Punch.
