The Giraffe has a name!!!!

Oh what fun! Susan, over at smARTworks held a contest last week to name her giraffe. He's a handsome fellow, don't you think? You can see him (and other cool stamps) in the smARTworks catalog on page 61. I entered my choice for his name. . . Beauregard, Bo or Bogie for a nickname. He looks like a Beauregard to me! Anyway, Dini, of Mama Dini's Stamperia fame, got to choose the giraffe's name and I am so excited that she chose my entry! Go on over to her website here and check out the cool card she made in Bogie's honor! Thank you Susan and Dini!

Fantastic-ly Fun Card!

Today, I thought I would ignore the sketches and color challenges calling my name and concentrate on using some of the paper out of my Retro Mat Stack. Plus, I have this fun little set from Stampin' Up called Furnished with Love and I have never used it! Yikes! Here's what I came up with. . . and for a ribbon addict, it was hard to skip the ribbon on a card, but I DID IT! I couldn't leave the glitter off, though! You'll see a touch of it on the fan!

Big Blossom Retro Style!

Ever had an idea of how you want a card to look in your mind and for some reason, you just can't quite make it? This card looks a good deal different than I imagined, but I think I really like it! I put the who blossom (with green edge) up on dimensionals, and the blossom center is on dimensionals too. This was for today's SCS Sketch Challenge 130. Kind of fun!

My very first CASE!!!!

Okay, I have to say that I really love the color and sketch challenges on SCS! But this was my first time to actually "copy" someone's card! It was fun, harder than I thought and so much fun (did I mention that already?). Anyway, here is my CASE of Cambria Turnbrow's card. Enjoy!

Coffee on my mind. . .

I seem to have coffee on my brain ever since I had that yummy iced coffee at Starbucks. Well, that and I just got my brand new Like it a Latte stamp set. . . LOVE IT! Here's a fun coffee card with some paisleys from my new Cuttlebug die.

Iced Coffee & Good Friend

I am so thankful for my good friend, Cheryl! She is a kindred spirit! For my birthday, Cheryl took me to Starbucks for an iced coffee and a GIGANTIC cookie and then we strolled down to the River Front Park, sat on a bench and visited! It's so fun to visit uninterrupted!!! Anyway, this is my thank you card to her for a fun evening!
