So I was playing with my seaweed stamp yesterday and wanted to see if I could make anything else out of it. So I made vines for this cute little monkey! My little one loves Curious George, we watch it every morning before we head out the door. He was so excited when he saw it that I had to give it to him, he keeps it next to where he sleeps at night.

This is one of my louder cards but I really love the vibrancy of the teal I went with you! The inside pink is a border I drew with my copic marker, the white was a bit stark without it.
I've seen lots of fancy light kits but I'm not ready to spend the money on these just yet. So I want to post my very low tech solution. It's two pieces of white paper held up by my desktop organizer. Very simple but it works

I'm also really loving the nestabilities, it has been a really great purchase. They have become a staple in my card making, no more measuring for me!

There's a reason we bought two laptops...I don't share very well! Last year our computer went kaput and we decided to replace the PC with a shared laptop. That lasted all of two days, my husband went out and bought his own. Apparently he wasn't getting enough time on the computer!
Fast forward to now... and his laptop is on the fritz. He took it to Best Buy and it has to be sent off for 2-4 weeks. Which means we have to share one, so let the torture begin.

I thought the Officer could use a car. So I took the 'Holiday Car' from the AP release this year and masked the hood wreath. I drew in the lines to make it look like a regular car. Finally I drew the lights on top to make it look official!

The little witch is a cute $1 stamp from Michael's, I picked it up during my covert operation for the MS punches! It couldn't be more perfect for soon to be mine A muse stamp.

So I had some good stamping time today, I wanted to play with my new punches so here's my first attempt playing with the goo punch. I wanted to see if I could turn it into something else so I made fire!

This card is a little plain, I think I'll go back and add glitter to the dress. Overall I like the soft muted colors, it's a departure from my loud purples and greens! The sentiment stamp on the bottom really irks me because it's crooked on the wood block. I pulled it off and remounted it but it's still crooked.

Still working on the inspiration challenge, I choose to use this super cute card from Julie HRR. I really wanted to play with this layout because I had never done anything like it. I added some pink to make the girl owl girly...granted I never seen a pink owl! I look forward to trying this out again.

What a weekend, we had a packed house from Friday night thru Sunday evening. I love our place but it is exhausting having people over every weekend. At least it helps me keep my house in order!
On to stamping this week is a challenge to use one of the cards from the VMAA's and use it as inspiration. I choose this card from Ottchix at SCS. I loved the subtlety of the pink, I didn't want to make the card exactly so I choose to mix up the colors. First I made my own background paper using a small flower from one of the A muse clear sets. The flowers are stamped in a random pattern. Then I stamped the dress onto lilac paper and then again on white vellum. I'm not a big fan of vellum because I can never find the right adhesive. Look closely and you can see it underneath...the search will continue. Then I added the green ribbon and a sentiment.
