Cheers to you friends! Actually thats the name of this set. Its called Girls Night Out and its from My Favorite Things. Its so fun to paper piece, it just might be my new favorite stamp set! It just retired so i'm so glad I snagged it while I could. I made this card for my dear friend Amanda for her birthday. She LOVED it ( or so she said haha).

"frosty the snowman .." ok I'll spare you my singing but I did want to share my card for the FOSTV challenge which was to use a snowman on your card. I made mine using circle punches . I then gave him a scarf using the Cracked Hello set from MFP. I love snowmen so I had such fun making this card. I hope you join us this week with your snowmen cards.

Card recipe!

Posted by Unknown at 12:40 AM 7 comments
Are you all in a turkey and shopping coma? I didnt do much shopping but I did do a lot of turkey eating. I did take a break to do the Friends of speedy tv challenge which is a card recipe. One layer, two colors and three embellies. What a fun challenge! I used this beautiful amaryllis from Marks Finest Papers,a Heinrich Co. One layer is usually so bold and pretty but often forgotten because us crafters wanna layer on all the goodies. What can you do with this recipe?

This is my card for the TGF pay it forward challenge. I love this company. They are so giving and I love the idea of this. I know a couple of people who have had really hard years this year so this is great. I used my favorite stamp from them called Cheeky Shooter! Shes soooo my style and I love this ribbon I found to go with her.

Hi Friends! I sure hope you all are staying warm wherever you are. Its raining here and cold ( but at least my truck is finally getting its free car wash from nature). Its gonna be a good weekend to stay inside with some hot chocolate ( I like to add peppermint schnapps to mine, hey don't judge! Tis the season to be JOLLY) and stamp. While your stamping to you really should join us for the challenge at Speedy Fox and Friends because its to pop something up. Its kind of hard to see in this picture but every layer of this card is popped up with pop dots. I used the Marks Finest Papers, A Heinrich Co. sets called Cracked Hello and Tree Greetings. I know it looks like I did the tree backwards but I swear I stamped the white and then the brown . Oh well it still lookins nifty! So join us this week because you could win some new stamps!

Fishing Fools!

Posted by Lena Nunn at 10:00 PM 6 comments
* On the Fly stamp setWOW, way to challenge me FOSTV! This week the challenge is to make a scrapbook page which I havn't done in about two years. I busted out these pictures from a drawer ( full of pictures that I wantd to scrap when I used to be a scrap-o-holic, pre card-o-holic days). These pictures were taken of Tony, my dad and I up at a beautiful lake close to our house called Lake Pillsbury. They have good bass fishing there! I used this awesome new set from Marks Finest Papers, a Heinrich Co. Called On The Fly. Its so right up my alley. You know I love fishing! Join us this week by making a scrapbooking page and you could win an awesome stamp set. This has inspired me to pull out more pics and get scrappin. Nobody likes to dig through photos in a drawer. They deserve to put in albums.

Make your own background

Posted by Lena Nunn at 12:46 PM 0 comments
Hi everyone! I hope you all had a great weekend before having to return back to the dreaded Monday. Boooo! At least I got to do some stamping over the weekend, including this card for the farm fresh challenge on The Greeting Farm. I used Blush Bettie from the Blush Society. She was stamped on Kraft paper and colored in with prismacolor pencils. She was also paper pieced. I made the snowflake background using a cheapy $1. 00 stamp from Michaels and pacific point ink. The flowers were also from the $1.00 bin ( hey I know I'm cheap! haha). I love how this card turned out and I am so glad I got to play along.
