Sweet Little Bunny

For Angie's Flopsey Bunny Swap. I didn't have flopsey so Angie opened it to ANY bunny. I thought this little one looked soooo sweet. Plus, I was able to use up more of my Chatterbox PP stash! Tying the ribbons was alot of work!!

Manly ATCs

For Christie's Manly ATC swap. This swap was a pain in my patoot! I knew I wanted to use these TH stamps but I had a hard time getting everything where I wanted it & how I wanted it. I embossed the "flourish" thing w/distressed embossing powder. I've had this stuff for a while & never use it as I'm not sure how it's supposed to look. I hope when people get their ATCs they won't say "hey! Suzi embossing skills suck!" Maybe I should have added a note that the powder is supposed to be rough & flaky??? The truck was another disaster. I embossed it w/versamark & clear powder & liked the way it looked on SU's close to cocoa paper. So, I stamped 10-12 images & cut them all out. Then, I realized I stamped them on Creamy Carmel. It didn't look right. I tried everything to make them work but, in the end, restamped & recut w/the Close to Cocoa. Who wants 10 truck images in creamy carmel????

Alcohol Pumpkin

Remember the Alcohol ink disaster from a couple days ago? Well, I added some more color to the pumpkin & decided that he as ok to use. I made my ATCs but now the pumpkins (cut from soda cans) won't uncurl. I've done EVERYTHING to them to keep them flat. I'm hoping & praying everyone who gets these ATCs will keep them in baseball sleeves so the pumpkin stays a little flatter....

January Christmas Cards

This card is a direct case of this card from Mish Mash's Blog. I have discovered that, unless the Christmas card has pink, I don't like it. I love her's, don't think mine turned out as good. I need more sentiment stamps. I've always avoided them 'cause I can type anything I want & print it on the card. But, times like these, I realize I NEED those stamps!
