Good Thoughts Coming Up! * (even for the guys!)

Changing pace

I did a lot of that during this past week!
  • Added a "stress test" to my schedule.   I recommend this for causing stress if you need/want it.  Otherwise, not bad, but not necessarily a "good time" either.
  • Add in overnights with a Grand ... due to Spring Break!  This is a good thing for tuning up my Wii skills, but does nothing for the stampy zone for the duration.   ;)
  • Now comes the "Lego Movie".  While I noticed that it can cause unscheduled 'napping' for grown-ups, it does seem appealing to the elementary crowd.  Approved by 'Grands'!
  • And as long as things are changed up this week, let's change themes on my stampin' table!

Every now & then an idea comes to mind that works for the guys in our lives.  That's how I felt about this one. 
Even though there's more than one layer, it still feels lik a CAS (clean & simple) in my books.

And did you notice?   If you don't happen to have any ribbon left in your stash ... that works for this project!

I hope you found something inspiring here today.  I do enjoy sharing with you ... It's good for the creative spirit.

Today I'm sharing a card that we made in last weekend's class.  Originally I designed it as a 'Thank You' card for my upline, but who can resist the Sweet Sorbet papers?  I love this dsp!

In class, ladies got to use the Big Shot for both die cutting with the Banners framelits, as well as embossing with the Polka Dots folder.  Just a short line of piercing was added at the top of the sentiment banner.  

I appreciate your visits.  Please feel welcome to pause a moment to say "Hello" one of these days!
Happy day to you!

Wasabi Birthday Wishes!

Welcome to March, everyone! 

It's been a crazy-busy time here for the past 2 1/2 weeks or more ... so I owe y'all a big apology for missing blog posts.  So off we go into our brand new month ... getting that much closer to finishing off this incredibly cold & icy & snowy & crazy winter!  Yay!!

Let's do it up in green!

Wild Wasabi green is the main color here, and it's CAS for an easy start.   I honestly adore the Watercolor Wonder designer series papers from the Occasions catalog.  This green chevron is just one of the several awesome papers in the set.  And, it will matches beautifully with your Gumball Green cardstock as well!  Marina Mist cardstock & ink are used in small amounts as an accent color.  'Subtles Candy Dots' are an easy little addition ... they're even self-adhesive!

See those bitty banners on the lower  portion?  The 'Banner Blast' stamp set (133554) and the 'Banner' punch ( 133519) are FREE Sale-A-Bration choices!

That's it for now!  I have several more creations to share here this month.   Hoping that you found some inspiration here today!
