If you have cows & horses, you need a FENCE??

This is for Sherri's fence swap. I LOVE THIS!!! THe fence is so cute & I think I did a pretty good job coloring (ok, the sky is not perfect but it's watercolor, it doesn't have to be, right???) Another piece of stash background paper!! Yea me (Ok, on Saturday, I went to Archivers & bought like $15 worth of pattern papers. Not so yea me. :( )

ATCs until the Cows come home?

Again, for an Angie swap. Love this little cow! Hate my hand writing but, whacha gonna do?? Old CM patterned paper. Felt good getting rid of something so old!! You can't tell in this really out of focus pic (looked pretty good when I took it, go figure) but the horns & the bell are covered with crystal effects.

Stamp Camp part IV

Fun card to make (and we got to keep the template to make them again!). I really like the dress with the belt on it! Really "makes" the card!! I'm going to use this for a graduation card for a friends 8th grader! I probably will add some stickles or rhinestones to the scallops to make it pop & make the "sparkle" sentiment make more sense. LOL

Stamp Camp part III

Sue apparently really loves this flower embossing folder. It's cute but I'd really like to have a stamp camp WITH OUT it sometime!! LOL This was a cool looking card tho. (Please ignore the poor job I did w/the border punch, I'm still not good w/these!!) I really liked the pink & purple together.

Stamp Camp part II

I LOVE this card! It's got so much going on, I doubt it can even be mailed but it's way cool!!! Die cut scallop oval (that we punched the holes in -- awesome effect!) Die cut flowers (I HAVE to get this die) die cut butterfly (yes, I HATE butterflys but this one is acceptable 'cause it's got BLING!) Plus, I'm SO IN LOVE with this stamp!!! We also stamped a b/g on the butterfly die cut. I really need to get my b/g stamps out & use them more!

More ATCs are done!

For Angie's horse ATC swap. This stamp is from High Hopes. Cutest stamps EVER but really, really slow shipping!! But, they sent me like 11 free stamps with my order. And, I got my order in time for the swap so, I won't complain. At least not too loudly! LOL

Stamp Camp for May

Stamping fun at Sue's again this month! She does such great projects. She claims they are all CASEd but, I don't care, they are very neat.

Here is the flowerpot card I've been seeing around EVERYWHERE! I was never overly impressed with them but, doing on myself does impress me! I think the flower pot is cute!!!
