Verve Release Party Challenge

Good evening friends. Tonight was the Verve Release Party, and boy did I have fun. This was my first release party so I was a little nervous. It sure is hard trying to keep up and make comments at the same time. I got through it fine and even though I did not win any of the challenges, I still bought the new stamps and 3 other stamp sets. That means I can't buy anything else until the end of July.
So let me tell you a little bit about the cards I made. The top card uses the Cosmobell stamp from Stamping Bella. This sketch caught me off guard because I don't have a square punch so I had to cut them by hand. I think it came out allright.

This turned out to be one of my favorite cards using paper fron S.E.I.

On this card I used an Instyle Stamp called Yuki( I think that's her name). I also used my new Dotted Wave border punch.

A simple sketch using DCWV paper.

This is my favorite card! I just love how it turned out. I bought this paper a few months ago and forgot about it. The stamp is called Upsy Daisy from Stampin' Up. Now who will I give this card to ? Well, that's all for tonight. I need to get up early tomorrow so I can make a get well card for a friend of mine. TFL!!!!!!!!!

Mojo Monday Cards

Where have I been you ask? Well , I have been trying to work on some cards and layouts. I just can't seem to get much done lately, so my blog has suffered. Now let's see if I can get back on track. The first card was made using the Mojo sketch #89. What do you think? I'm so in love with this paper from DCWV, it's called Citrus. Since I have my first card order for 3 birthday cards I used this sketch. I basically made the same card, but instead of the sentiment I used a photo of the birthday lady. It actually turned out beautiful. All the cards for this order will have each persons photo on the front. After they have received them I will post.

Ok, on to the second card. I made this yesterday for the Mojo 91 sketch . I have never made a card this long. I finally used paper other than DCWV(ha-ha). The paper is MAMBI, and I used a Stamping Bella stamp that I have never used, she is called bettina buttercream. Now that school is out for the summer, I hope to take a vacation even if it is for the weekend.
Oh yeah I didn't forget. Here is a photo from Six Flags. This was taken at Cougar Rock and her /his name is ISA. Can't remember if a boy or girl, but I think it's a he. Well thanks for looking and leave me a comment or two. TFL!

New Project

Sorry I haven't posted in a few days, but I have been draggin'! The trip to Six Flags was so much fun, we stayed until the park closed. Even thou I can't get on a lot of rides because of my neck and shoulder I still had fun. I will post those pics later. Here are my latest cards and a new project that I'm lovin'.

The notebook turned out ok for my first one. I used paper from MAMBI that has such a summer feel to it. The stamp on the card is Hope and Grace from The Greeting Farm. I used the same paper and Prima flowers. TFL
