It's all in the bag...

(Blogger is being stupid so I will have to try and correct this later - OK, I give up. It will have to stay. It won't show the spaces I've put in.) Just got back from a vacation in Maine. We had the most relaxing time and perfect weather! It was sunny and in the 80s the whole time and not a cloud in the sky. My only complaint is that the mosquitos were brutal!! We practically went through a whole can of Deep Woods Off! Here's our view. I have much better pictures on my iPad!
Before we left, I made this card for my son's girlfriend with a bag stamp from Too Much Fun Rubber Stamps and gave it to her at the cottage. It had a gift card in the little bag. She loves owls so she thought it was cute.
I also made this bridal shower card. I got a thank you from my cousin and it sounded like she enjoyed the card more than the gift! LOL I used ribbon for her tissue paper so it was a little more dressy. I glued the bag to a card because I wanted to add a sentiment inside. It's cute when it is cut out completely too. My biggest issue is the sides seem to lift a little because it's a little thick where the tissue is. If you have any suggestions as to a good adhesive, please let me know. I tried ATG and that white Scor Tape.

Tough cards...

I've had a few difficult cards to make lately and thought I would share one. This was for my niece's high school graduation. I usually use school colors and when I looked online for this one, they were black and white. Boring! So I decided to use paper with black and other colors in it. Tonight I made a retirement card for a woman and a few nights ago for a man. The next one up is a bridal shower. Thanks for looking! If I can remember who this image came from, I will update tomorrow. The paper is Basic Grey Out of Print and the ribbon is SU. The congratulations is a Hero Arts stamp but I'm not sure who the Class of 2012 is from. Update: The image is from Anji's Antics. She has some terrific freebie images to check out!

Card for my little brother

Made a quick card for my youngest brother who is six years younger than me. He's always been my little brother even though he's 46. I used a Stamping Boutique image. They have some cute guy digis. I bought this one last year for Father's Day and decided to use it for my brother's birthday. I used some old papers (yes, I'm really using up my stash!) and some SU cs. Here are the Candi Dots that I love too. Thanks for looking. (excuse the bad photo). Heading out to a SU open house with my friend, Pia.

Another freebie...

Boy, I'm not doing so well with blogging lately. I really just can't seem to find the time!! I still have not played with the My Memories software either. I need to take a couple of days off to play! But then again, I would end up babysitting for a lot of it. I love spending time with my C, but I also miss my play time.

Here is another freebie for you:

Hopefully you will get to play more than I do!

Bad blogger....

So much for my fresh start this year on blogging! I've been so busy, it's ridiculous. My stamp room needs dusting at this point. I got home a little early today and thought I'd have extra time until my hubby asked if I wanted to go to Best Buy to pick up his order. UGH....well, at least he paid me back with dinner at Fudruckers! Love that place.

I promised a freebie, so I will post again without a finished lo. I hope to catch up soon.

Here is your freebie from My Just click on their name to download. Isn't it cute?!! I can't wait to use it!

I'm excited about taking a trip with the girls on Saturday to a not so lss (about an hour away). I've never been, but my stamping friends love this place so I can't wait. It'll be fun just getting together.
