Love My Recollections Stamps :)

Some of the ladies on SCS started talking about the new stamps Mikes just got in, and of course I had to go and check it out here in Canada...They were awesome! So I bought a bunch and the 2 I used for this card were the Holly and Berries, and the Peace sentiment. I decided to do the color challenge today because last week was just a distaster...Purple was the Ways To Use It Challenge. It's not a good color for me to try...here it is in my SCS Gallery. I love the color I just can't work with it the way I want too...I will keep trying :) Maybe I shouldn't have used black...oh well...this one I'm quite happy with so I hope you all like it :)

Blog-Aversary and My Anniversay!!!! Update

It's my 10 year anniversay with my hubby :) So here is a shout out to him with a little note of love.

"Dear Robert,
A little tribute to you to start your day with a lot of love..............
I knew I loved you before I met you...
I had a dream...and you came true...
you are my love of loves, my heart of hearts, my souls of souls...you are the air I breathe...
You were sent to me when I needed love most in my life....you are my lifetime gift....Thank You For loving me unconditionaly!
I Love You My Sweet Robert! Huggs and Kisses
Your Butterfly Kiss......."
Okay enough of the mushy stuff..lol...Another Set :) This was made with the Cranberry CS from SU. These brass charms are my favorite. I love the elegant shape of these reindeer.

I went to Michaels this weekend and saw the MS punches that were on the shelf and want just about all of them :) I saw the new corner punch which I did drooled over and thought...okay....not today...maybe next week, seeing that I've already gone over my weekly budget of craft supplies. Now for those of you that are inquiring about the MS scoring tool and wanting a review or any info on it here some for you. I spoke with the scrapbooking instructer at Michaels and she said she loves it because it'll make envelopes, mind you they are a little larger than we cardmakers need them to be but a card maker can make a card to fit the size of the envelope. She does not like it for scoring 12x12 paper because it comes up short. Her advice is to stick with the scor-it or scor-pal. There are too many cons than pros. Now if you are anything like me I have to have all the tools...well almost...lol...so I'll be getting one when they are back in stock and I'll be giving all of a personal review of this tool.


If you haven't posted yet for a chance to win do it now I'll be choosing a name at 11am est.
