sympathy for a friends family

I always get sad when I have to make these kind of cards but if you have to make them using these Verve stamp sets it'll work great. The Cross is the prettiest I've seen around. I just got a bunch of Julee's stamps. I'm looking forward to playing with them. This card is made from two of the Verve sets. ! is called Note of Prayer and the other is called Artful Elegance. You can find them here if you want to buy some for yourself.

This card got started because of the ic142 and this is the one it's based on. I changed the blue though to the sage because Verve sent me the pretty ribbon for an order thank you. How nice was that. My inspiration was the color and the the scroll leaves. I didn't use leaves but it's similar in my eyes.

Inspiration challenge thank you

Today I've been wanting to stamp all day. I wanted to make a teacher at my daughters school a thank you. She did something really nice for me. Also she's getting married this may and told me she loves hearts and roses. I'm thinking of making a bunch more for her to be able to write out on her own for thank yous. She also has been tutoring my daughter this summer so I've started thinking of what to give her at the end. This may be the ticket.

This also fits as todays ic141.
which picture below, do you think I picked as my inspiration?

I can't believe I went through with it

I can't believe I got a tattoo!! I'm turning 41 next Sunday and I wanted to do something totally out of character and unpredicable for me. I'm really conservative with everything usually. I do need to blame my dear friend Susan though. She got the idea rolling. Okay okay Don't laugh!!! My face totally gives my pain away. It did hurt but it only took 15minutes to do.

I did design it myself. I omitted the center of this kind thoughts stamp then added the flower that's with the set. I originally had just the stem as the flower going down but I wanted to put my daughters name in the design so when I went to the tattoo place Mr Billy redrew my picture with my daughters name in. He was amazing. A very talented man.

I'm still as sweet as I've always been and I won't be getting another. So don't worry. One in a life time is plenty for me. It's been 2 days and I still like looking at it and it's in a spot that can be covered easy and shouldn't bother anybody. My husband didn't mind either way which surprised me. He liked that I designed it. My parents think I'm crazy but I think I'm definitely less predicable. Thanks for stopping by. Terry

Good Morning, I so wanted to sleep in this morning but I've been up and out all week that my body wouldn't listen and just sleep in. I looked at todays inspiration challenge first thing this morning and went about my day thinking about it. It didn't take me too long before this idea came into my head.

My Recipe is:

Paper: soft sky 3x3 pre-cut and scored cards, Chocolate chip, designer paper I used was stampin ups retired afternoon tea and such a girl-rosie rings.

Ink: Brown stazon, soft sky, groovy guava, wild wasabi. shhhh, I got carried away and if you look close I colored in a flower like it was a leaf. oops!!!

accessories: orange stickles, mauvy scallop circles large and the small

Have a great Saturday, Terry
