Wow what a week!   Unfortunately because of buying and selling a house and getting ready for a big trip I have not had the time to make cards this week.  Hopefully I will this weekend.  We will be celebrating my Dad's 76th birthday on our trip and I have been instructed to make multiple birthday cards and a banner for his suite.

I am excited to announce the winner of the Art Impressions Wildly Cute Giraffe Stamp is.......Michelle George.  Congratulations Michelle!  I have sent you an email and look forward to sending you your stamp :)

My little niece loved her giraffe and card last week.  Here is a video of her opening her gift.  The reaction is completely priceless.  If you didn't get a chance to see that post CLICK HERE to check it out.  Please note:  This video requires Flash player which may not be on all devices.

When they woke up in the morning apparently the Giraffe was stinky and this is how it had to be fixed :)

This gift was such a  win-win.  I loved giving it, she loved receiving it and WWF gets to continue their works saving our wildlife.  It's a beautiful thing.

Baby Cards w/ Sunny Studios Quilted Hexagons Stamps and Distress Oxide Inks

Welcome it's great to see you :) I am not often in the need of baby cards so this weeks card is particularly excited for several reasons. First I am waiting for the birth of a new little niece or nephew (and I am guessing the last one).  I will be traveling to Minnesota for the birth....Yay!

On the way I will be stopping in Greendale, WI to visit Gina K. and Kathy Racoosin and participate in The Coloring Challenge Road Trip.  So much fun :)  Because I will be traveling I took the opportunity to make these adorable baby cards so that I would have them on hand for the special arrival.

I had this super cool set that came out in July from Sunny Studio Stamps called Quilted Hexagons.

My grandma was a huge quilter and I have many friends who enjoy it as well.  But me, I'm a stamper, so this set is perfect.  The idea of actually quilting raises my anxiety about 3000% but stamps are my happy place.  This particular set has so many elements to create anything from and old fashioned …

Fall Tea Cup Pop Up Card Featuring Hero Arts Infinity Dies

I love Hero Arts, how about you? :)  I had so much fun creating this card this week.  It started with Hero Arts Infinity Dies and my love of anything to do with Tea and ended with my quest to make a stand up card that someone would want to display and not be so ready to throw away.   There is a video below showing how I created this pop up card, a diagram below that for what I like to call my paper spring, and below that handy links to all of the products I used to make this cutie :) 
This weekend I'm heading to Greendale, Wisconsin to visit Gina and her lovely shop.  One of my happy places.  See you soon Gina :)  Is everyone getting ready for the holidays....I'm starting to itch to make Christmas cards.  I'm guessing I will start at Village Paper and Ink this weekend.
