Pot O' Sprinkle

I made this for the Inspiration Challenge over on Splitcoaststampers today (IC118). I've been wanting to get this Sprinkle image inky for what feels like forever! LOL! I have to do a quick post today (I need to get cracking on a birthday cake for the double birthday party tomorrow to celebrate Harland and hubby's birthdays)!
I've got a cute little Poochie image stamped and matted (I'm hoping I'll have time to finish that up tonight).

Hope you have a wonderful weekend!

Dinking around!

Woohoo! I've learned how to add my signature to a post. LOL!


A case for using the Stamp-a-ma-jig

A pretty card ruined by a misplaced sentiment. Why didn't I use my trusty Stamp-a-ma-jig?

Could it be:
a. The little black cat that is giving me love bites on my feet?
b. Is the tool SO complicated that its use would make one wary?
c. Is it 10:20 PM on a Sunday night and I was just too lazy to bring the trusty tool out?
d. Has the Stamp-a-ma-jig been lost to the piles of clutter on my stamp desk?

The answer is C (although D is not too far behind). Don't you hate it when an otherwise pretty card is botched by the misplacement of a sentiment? Oh well...I'm too tired to start it over so I'll just live with it. The card layout and colors and cased from a drop dead gorgeous card made by the very talented Beate Johns (I'll post a link to the specific card later. Right now I've got to start packing my lunch and getting ready to leave for work).

Happy Wednesday!

Birthday Cupcake Mojo!

Sorry for the lack of posts this last week. I started my new job on Monday and the training shift is throwing me off (2:30 PM to 11:30 PM). I've also been spending 3 days a week in my oldest sons Kindergarten class (so he will at least see mommy during the week) which means that I'm having to wake up at 6:00 AM. Burning the candle at both ends has left little time for stamping. Hang in there with me though...I have a couple of cute things up my sleeve!

My oldest son will be turning 6 on Tuesday and this is going to be his birthday card. I used Julee's Mojo Monday sketch (Mojo26) over on her blog Poetic Artistry. The card uses my Hero Arts clear Cupcakes set. This is a perfect gender neutral stamp set (after all, boys like cupcakes too)! The sketch this week was a bit of a challenge for me, but I'm happy I gave it a try.

Have a wonderful week!
