MTSC40, CC237 Live Your Dream and SC241 Thinking of You

Happy Thursday you all!!!

My goodness this week is flying by....I hardly had any time to stamp. Plus everything I touched today - stampin' wise - was a disaster...I think my mind was somewhere else!!!

Well - actually - we are ripping our carpet out and replacing it with Laminate flooring. We already have it in our Foyer, Formal Dining Room and I have no idea why we did do the Living Room as well??? Anyway - the Flooring Company is coming today and is starting the process....so yesterday and the day before yesterday I was cleaning my house...rearranging....and laundry (which is a never ending story around here).

Anyway -I thought I'd better go ahead and post some cards for ya!!!





















The first card is for Mercy's Tuesday's Sketch - MTSC 40. It was also my submission for the CC237 - using Crushed Curry, Basic Black and Rich Razzleberry.

I was using the SU Set - Live Your Dream. The flowers were colored with the SU Markers - Basic Black, Rich Razzleberry and Crushed Curry.

As soon as I was done coloring I *misted* the image with my Misting Bottle and stamped it straight onto my White CS.

The DP is from the Rich Razzleberry Patterns Collection. To decorate the card I added the Polka-Dot CC Ribbon and of course my favorite Silver Pearls.

***************************************

Next I would like to share a card I did a while back for the SC241. Not sure why I have never posted it here ......?!?

I really like how it shows off some of the new SU In-Colors.





















The Set I used is from the Hostess Level II - Kind & Caring Thoughts.

I inked these flowers in Rose Red, Bermuda Bay and Soft Suede. The sentiment was inked in Basic Black.

The DP is from the Thoroughly Modern Collection and I added a panel of Bermuda Bay CS.

At last I added the Polka-Dot Soft Suede Ribbon and the Silver Pearls :)

I totally forgot to tell you all that this was my last month on the *There She Goes* Design Team. So this will definitely free up my schedule to use more of my SU stash.....which I have been neglecting for awhile :(....

If you have time swing by the TSG Blog and check out the new Design Team Jessica has announced....she also has a great sale going on!!! Plus the October Sneak Peeks are going on!!!

Have a wonderful day and I hope I get to stamp today :) !?!
