A wonderful Tuesday!

Today is a wonderful day! I have a day off!!! So excited... I'm going to just chill out, make something cool and be happy. Ohhh yeah, I do have to go shopping at the grocery and the Mall,Smiley from millan.net I need to get something for my DH for our first year anniversary. Yep, I got married on April's Fool Day! I will post some pics tomorrow! Great memories! Smiley from millan.net

I love Mondays... I think I say this every week :) Here is my entries for Glenda Random Amusing Challenge #18. Okay, I got myself into BIG trouble a few weeks ago, I challenged myself not to use my dearest Copics... thank goodness, I found my Koh-i-Noors pencils. But this week's challenge, the rule is not to color on your card! No Copics, Spicas, Koh-i-Noors, Gel pens.... Oh man!!! This was tough, my pens were just calling me, USE ME, pleaseeeeeee! Smiley from millan.net

I used Flower Soft on this card, I think I am not breaking the rule, but I wanted to try it out. It's quite cool...

Supplies: Amuse cs, Tree 2 clear stamp set, Spring in the Air, Flower Soft spring mix, a "pretty" flower bling.

Here is another one, just in case.... "no Flower Soft" allowed!

Supplies: cs, eucalyptus, Just saying hello, ribbon, shabby shutter Distress Ink

more Amuse cards...

more cards from the new Amuse Love Blooms release...
I love how this card turned out, I didn't do much. I used Solid Zinnia stamp, stamped with versamagic pixie dust, then I cut out pink and white cs with nestabilities (scalloped rectangle), chalked the edges, then finished with the sentiment in the middle Two Souls stamp.

Ok, I was going to wait and post this card tomorrow, but I can't.... I love the gown stamp!!!
It's soooo pretty! I colored this beautiful gown with copic marker R59 cardinal, and added the bling with the stardust gel pen. LOVE it! It's sure a Amuse "Vera Wang" gown, Oh la la! Smiley from millan.net I also used the nestabilities Label One, and the pretty cs is from Kaisercraft Sakura Park Hana.

Didn't use much with this card: Amuse cs, ribbon, "grass edge" scissors, Koh-i-Noor colored pencils, sakura glaze pen and black marker. (I quess I did use a few things, hehe!)
Stamps: Swing girl, tiny bee, Spring is in the Air

new LOVE...

Happy Monday! Last week sure went by fast. Here is the Case of the Curious Card challenge which I did last week. I love the grey and yellow combo... I saw a few samples at one of the craft magazine, so I decided to give it a try! and I LOVE IT!!!!

It's time for Smiley from millan.net

Last week at my LSS... Michelle the owner taught a very cool class! Unfortunely, I couldn't attend the class, but Michelle taught me a few tricks, and of course I got glitter everywhere. Check out the pretty fairy and of course the GLITTER!
