WOW can't believe it's already Sunday - going to try to go back to work tomorrow. Guess it was just deciding to try it on Monday - think I overdid - went and ran some errands Friday and then tried to do some bathroom cleaning yesterday and think I've probably overdone. Going to go in tomorrow and may just plan to stay for 1/2 a day. My dh thinks it's too soon but we will see. Of course I did get some scrapping in this weekend though. I've become addicted to these card sketches. ALSO I found some cute stamps at Michael's on Friday made by Recollections (who I'm thinking may be a Michael's brand?) Anyway wanted to play with them and use my Copic markers. So for the first one here's the sketch at Card Patterns. Used the stamps I was telling you about with some old SEI I have hoarded and added a little stitching too.

The next sketch I did was the one for CPS. For this one I used some Crate Paper which again I have hoarded but the colors are perfect for a jungle like theme. Are these stamps not adorable?

Then when I was looking at the new September Card Maps I found a sketch that enticed me to open this Basic Grey packet that has been - yes - sitting here in my stash! AND I used a ribbon that I have had forever but knew would be perfect for something someday! It fades from one color to another - pretty cool!

Then just because I was into playing with my stamps today could not pass up the opportunity to use some of my favorite stamps from Kim Hughes with Cornish Hens. Somehow I actually bought this set TWICE!!! Now Kim is also enjoying this set! The patterned paper is Scenic Route which I was using for a layout (which I will show off when I get it done - waiting for the journaling from my niece - it's about her little one!)

Next just because I was strolling through my stash I found this pretty Heidi Grace paper and made a card with it. I used some glitter in the center's of the flowers.

And because a day would just not be complete without using core'dinations I made this card with some yummy October Afternoon and some Jenni'Bowlin/core'dinations papers - also added some core'dinations papers on here as well. Then used one of my Spellbinder embossing/cutting folders to cut out the tag behind the farm animals. The little postage tag from OA is just so cute!!!

And lastly I have been waited to scrap this picture for the right paper and in going through my stash saw my Webster's Pages and decided that it was exactly what I needed. Kim doesn't like the picture but I did so I did it for me! The girl's were so pretty at their recital and they did so well. They have come along way this year in their dance. Now that Madison (the oldest) is a cheerleader her confidence has caught up with her natural talent and she's wowing us all!

Thanks for stopping by - will probably be next weekend before I can get time to post again!
