Just Chuggin' Along...

*** hey everyone! I just found out that Josianne over at Card Making Galore is giving away some fabulous blog candy! It's her one year Blogaversary and she has a bunch a stuff to give away! Check out her blog for more details....***

Good Morning!

This morning I sat down and organized the craft room a little. I need to get some more shelves and those handy dandy drawers for all my paper. Even my scrap bin is overflowing!!!! I also decided to make month by month lists of all the cards I need to make and when I need to send them by. My family is on the West Coast so I need to send their stuff a week in advance. Also, some of my closest friends live in Australia so sending down there takes time too - you gotta be organized!!!! After this card I only have one more birthday card to make for April and three Easter cards! YAY me!

For this card I started with basic grey cardstock to make the actual card and used bright yellow as my base color. I had a scrap of this baby blue and orange plaid paper so I used that for the background. (Like I said the bin is overflowing - must use it all!) After using a large circle punch and making the yellow border, I added that on top of the plaid background. For my image I used my Cakeabella stamp from Stamping Bella. I stamped her in jet black ink and embossed her with Stamp-It's Hologram Powder. I then colored her in with my Crayola's and mounted her on the same bright yellow cardstock. I added some of the dark blue feux snake skin paper at the bottom with orange polka dot ribbon from Michael's. I then layered an orange, two paper flower cutouts (one white one blue) and two yellow sequins with a jeweled brad for some pizazz! (That's a NIFTY word! LOL) Of course the last touch is some clear jewels which I just can't help but use EVERYWHERE! This one is for my other sister in law Laura, it is bright and sunny - just like her!
I think that's about it for today...check back, you never know, you may see more than one post today! :)
