Margarita Anyone - SSD #82

Hello my lovely friends! Hope you are enjoying the week!

At our house we are gearing up for the holiday weekend. I love fourth of July, when the night sky lights up with stars, color and glitter! Although in Texas (due to drought) majority of the fireworks have been canceled. I am completely dumbed about this!

Today I bring you a simply card. Not to sure how I feel about it but I wanted to use the Margarita Birthday stamp set from Skipping Stones Designs. So here it is, let me know what you think.

Supplies: Skipping Stone Stamp - Margarita Birthday; green stickles;
ribbon - Hobby Lobby; punch-the Paper Studio; ink-Stampin'Up & Archival Ink Coffee

Until next time happy scrappin'! ~ Carol

What Attitude?....

Hello Everyone!

Hope you all had a great weekend. Mine started out great but ended with me getting sick, yet again. I need something, seems I'm getting a sickness of some sort every other week (so tired of it) GRRRR This is new for me, I'm usually never sick. Oh, well.

Today I have a card for you using the Scraps of Darkness Welcome to the Jungle kit.  Using a sketch designed by Janis Medina-Maghinay for the Bo Bunny Card Sketch Challenge.

Twilight Saga Album Swap

Hi everyone, hope you are having a great week! I am in Tampa this week on business, it's a beautiful city and hope to get a little exploring in and maybe a scrap store or two.

At Scrappy Happiness you can chat, swap, or share anything and everything scrapping related and I love chatting with the fabulous ladies and a few gents over there.  One of those fabulous ladies put together a Twilight Saga mini album swap. Pick a character and one couple and make 6 identical pages to swap. Keep one for yourself and pass on the others. In turn 5 other people will do the same. If any of you know me, you know that I am obsessed in love with the Twilight Saga.

Love this swap and I am anxious to see what the others created.  Below is my page, front is Alice and Jasper and back page is Jacob. Hope you enjoy them.  But let me know what you think!

Supplies:  Paper-DCWV Immortal Love Stack,
Ribbon & Feathers-Hobby Lobby, Flowers-Prima, Brad-the Paper Studio
Flower (Alice/Jasper page) sprayed with Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist Starfish
Stamps-Artful Inkables, Martha Stewart Punches

Until next time - happy scrappin'! ~ Carol
