PSC79 Spring + Thank You

This week I am sharing a card I love from a past post..
I can't wait to show you my card this week. Thanks to my good friend Susan
I tried a new stamping technique and it turned out awesome....
Check it out !!
She showed me how to use three different ink colors on a stamp and
this awesome stamp comes to life. I started by choosing the colors of ink
I wanted to use. Start with the darker colors and then your
inks won't bleed. Move your stamp around coloring
each part with a different color. Then you lightly mist the stamp with ink
and stamp. The color will blend but not bleed.
Now this wasn't my first attempt it takes some practice to get the look you want.
The stamp I used was a Tim Holz and it was just one flower I just stamp my
card multiple times.
Then I blended some ink around the edges to give that cloudy effect.
Popped a sentiment and POW !!
Love it !!
Thanks for stopping by and drop by and join our challenge and
see what Susan has to share today.

What's up Wednesday

Well, last week I shared with you my desk at work.
It was a HOT mess.
Today I usually show what project I have been working on
Well, I am still knee deep in work so I have nothing on my craft table.
But, the last project I completed was a small mini album
for my nephew who was getting married.
This is how my desk has looked since !!
I took this picture Sunday.
Yay !! I couldn't create in this space if I wanted to.
So, last night I came home from work... late as usual.
But, since I had a little time I cleaned that table up.
Now, this is how I like it !!

I also took pictures of the rest of the room and it is too embarrassing to show you now.
After I get it all cleaned up I will show you the before and after !!
Ta Ta for now !1
Don't forget our challenge over at
Where Art meets Life !!
We want you to show us your SHINE :)
Check out what Susan has to share with you today also.

Flashback Friday!

Just a quick flashback photo of Sam!

Can you guess which one is Sam? This is at Sam's older sister's wedding at Bellingrath Gardens in 1978. I didn't guess correctly when I first saw the photo! Two of the girls are sisters. One is a friend.

Do you know who is who? Sam is on the far right, her sister is on the left, and their friend Beth is in the middle. Did you guess correctly?

Don't forget to enter your sparkle embellished projects into this week's Make Something Monday Challenge! If you haven't gotten your glitter out yet, there's still time to make something and link up by Sunday night!
