Crazy week

What a week this has been. My DD & her family are moving into their home and out of ours, Youngest DD has found out they are being stationed in San Antonio, Tx. DH was suppose to be on a trip to Houston for business but that ended up being cancelled due to Gustav so now he is scrambling to make arrangements to make up for that trip, My Niece's baby shower is today so I have been getting her goodies together, another friend had a wild and crazy Bday get together in Cave Creek last night, I missed an appt to have my blood drawn on Friday but I still managed to go stamping on Wednesday. I make sure I don't miss the important commitments..LOL. I wanted to answer a question that EVONNE asked regarding the template for Ellen Hutson's Witch shoe pattern, It can be found HERE. Any way..... This is a giant tag to go on the baby shower gift for my niece. I used a Justrite stamp for the monogram on the onsie I cut out with my cricut. It is hard to see but i put little bug around the border & made their wings sparkle with stickles.

This is a card we made at Sam's. She saw a card in I think Stampers Sampler so we improvised & came up with this little Beewitching little card. The little bee has stickles sparkling all over her. Curly black ribbon is from, not sure who the stamp is by. Sam bought it at a LSS I believe.
Diane came and it was great to see her. She has decided this year to not send Christmas cards to friends & families but instead send a letter telling them how all the Christmas cards she has made have been sent to the troops to send home to their families. I love her idea. I love the card too. I have been looking for this Santa stamp since Alyce told me about it but haven't been lucky enough to snag one. Thanks Diane for the great card. It looks like it is on yellow cardstock but it isn't that is the paper i put it on to take the picture. Santa has stickles on his beard ( I stuck my thumb in it while it was wet so it is a little messy on the left side).
I bought this stamp along time ago & finally let it see ink. I used colored pencils & gamsol to blend. The sentiment is SU! Heard from the Heart.
This card is cased from one I found online somewhere. The picture says Shirley Ross(I believe). The watermark is really small & hard for me to see so I hope I am giving credit to the right person. She used a flourish on her card & put pearls on the ends & around the flourish. I decided to make french knots with red floss. The flowers & sentiment are SU! Fresh Cuts. Rock N Roll was the technique.
This last card was inspired by Lauren Meader . It is hard to see but the yellow hive is embossed with a honeycomb fisker plate. The branch is SU! & the bees are CTMH. That's all I have for this week. Hope you have a great week ahead! Happy Stamping.
