A card for a friend...who loves CHOCOLATE!!The stamps come from a fellow Texan..His company is deadbeatdesigns.

The store that sells them is Stamp Salado in Salado ,Texas. It's a little bitty house in a historic town and it has thousands of stamps in this store. I have even taken a class there. Its a trip itself just to see all of the stamps under one tiny roof!

SCS color challenge

This weeks color challenge was almost the same as CDS weekend color challenge.

At SCS the chose Close to Cocoa, Taken with Teal, Very Vanilla. Over the weekend CDS

chose Chocolate Chip instead of Close to Cooca...Dang..I couldn't even cheat and use the same card because of the one color difference. Oh well, it was still a fun card to do because of the crystal effects I used on the jars. This stamp set is a hostess set from Stampin Up called Country Morning. What do you think? Pam

I might've hit the nail on the head...

They wanted a manly card for the Clean and simple challenge over at SCS this week. My paper had the nails so I only had to stamp the hammer with sentiment from the stamp set Totally Tool from Stampin Up. Clean and Simple and Manly!!
What do you think? Pam

I combined two different challenges this week. I love the color combo. Su Close to Cocoa, Cameo Coral, Certainly Celery, and Blush Blossom. This is set called Glamour Girls from Crafty Secrets.
The sketch was also alot of fun to do for this weeks challenge at SCS.


This is my card for the Clear Dollar Stamps Weekend Color Challenge at The colors were the retired colors of Stampin up...Baja Breeze and Kiwi Kiss. Then you can add Sahara Sand and a neutral of whisper white/ivory. The stamp I used is the set called Gladiolia-August Flower of the Month. I am not sure if gladiolias come in Baja Breeze or not but it worked for me.LOL Besides doing them in Baja Breeze I also added a little icicles stickles to the butterfly and to the button on the bow I hope you can see it in the picture.Besides decorating the inside like I always do you can tell I also made a matching envelope. The sentiment on the envelope is off another CDS set called Beautiful Butterflies. Enjoy looking and hope you like it.

Woo-hoo...If I had known that I was going to have time to play today at the Clear Dollar Stamps Weekend Color Challenge I wouldn't haven't have posted the earlier cards. While I was working on some signs for the head coach at our local High School my sister called and needed a birthday card . Needing a break from the signs I luckily remember the challenge and thought I would try to combine the two!! Here is the results. I used the stamp Birthday Blooms out of the Sunflower Songs set and on the inside I used a stamp from Charlie Daisy. I hope you can see the copper dragonfly that has landed on the regal rose petals! I used all the colors Lisa asked for: More Mustard, Sage Shadow, Regal Rose with white as the neutral and copper optional. Hope yall like it! Pam

The picture isn't the best ...I left the card in the cello
