Not colors I would think to put together, but when it is all said and done I think I like it!!!!!! This set is called blessing and it in from this months release at LPS the DP is from PTI and the grunge is from Tim Holtz I kind of used this months DD sketch, other than that I kind of kept it simple!
I just wanted to say thank you to everyone who still comes to this blog! when it comes to my creative mojo, it is all hit and miss. I think it may be back this week, as for next week who knows, but I have been having a blast playing some of the blog, and SCS challenges. So again thank you!!!!

Oops No Stop Sarah!!!!

Wow you should so see my room right now!!!! I got out every stamp every pack of old DP every old embelishment I have ever stored away!!! I found some really great stuff. I am calling this my treasure hunt!!!! The frame around the main image i got at hobby lobby like 5 years ago! the ribbon is from my coffee can of scrap ribbon the fake due drops have not been used forever! well most of my stuff hasn't I got all but the Kiwi Kiss out of the scrap box and I even got out something besides Swiss dots for the cuttle bug!!! The stamps are last years PTI sets, even the grunge board is something I had forgotten about!!! what a fun stamping day!!! and I even made time to clean the kitchen today. I feel very productive to day!!!!
now that I have stamped just for the heck of it I should probably clean my huge mess up I think I may only leave a small stack of stamps out and slowly go through them!!!!! I found 15 plus stamp sets that have never been used what a waist!!!
I think but can't be sure that I might be back tomorrow
with another card and I have some really funny pics of Thatcher eating dirt out of the garden!!!

the winner and a tutorial!!!

I thought if I am going to do a tutorial I should start out easy and hope ya'll like and want more!!!! I went with the felt flower for the first tutorial, mostly because most every one who reads this blog is a paper crafter, and most of you have the nesties dies.

It does move kind of quickly, and I am sorry about that, I am new to this and I could not figure out how to slow it down, but I will work on that for the next tutorial!!!!!!

the next tutorial I will be doing is a small stash and dash hand bag great for quick trips, or even a night out with the ladies! I love mine so I will be working on that so ya'll can make one to!!!!

some one asked if they could buy a bag from me, and I would be more than happy to do that!!! at this time I do not have a lot to choose from, but if you gave me an idea of color and size of pattern, I could work something out. I am more than happy to take check, postal money order, or paypal!!!!! the shoulder bag I showed in the blog candy post is $45.00 that includes shipping

Please don't think I have given up on stamping. I think that I was, and kind of still am in a creative funk. So I went with sewing to clear my head for a while!!!

I still have littler paper shop keeping me stamping every month, and I had a few comment that had me digging through my old stamps to see what I could come up with!!!!! I really think that the 25 comment I got will make my return to crafting soooooooo much easier!!!!!

thank you all sooooo much for playing along!!!!!!

here is your winner!!!!

Becky t

here is what she had to say:

Those bags are adorable! Maybe you should do a tutorial on how to make them. You say they are fun...prove it! LOL :-)

thank you Becky e-mail me with your snail mail addy and i will get your goodies off to you!!!

I made the top bag for my sister, and then it happened. I fell in love with it, and then wanted to keep it for myself!!! I just could not do that....... mostly because I already told her I made it. So I went ahead and made one for me!! the blue one!!!!!!!!
