Me & My Big Ideas

I joined a recipe swap (again!). I got the bright idea of making my own embellishments. I remembered thinking I was just so clever for thinking of that all on my own! Well, after 18 cards and six of them with lots and lots of itty, bitty pieces, I hope it's a long time coming before I have any more big bright ideas! Here's the one that almost made me cry!

Is the crockpot too cute or what? Yeah, that's what I thought after I made the first card. I didn't have that same thought after the sixth one! :D
This one wasn't so bad except that my eggs started looking less and less egg-shaped as I went along! LOL

Supplies: Cardstock (lots of it!); Pebbles chalks; EKS aluminum paper (I think that's what it is called!); stamps ?' Palette ink

Oh, I almost forgot. I made this to put a little cash in it for my mom. For those of you who are familiar with my pocketbook fetish, of course I asked if I could borrow it sometime! LOL. It measures about 2"X3" or something like that.

Supplies: Pretty paper - a gift from Deb over at AW&CT; lock - ScrapGoods; rhinestones - ME; gold cording - ?; gold embossing ink and powder - Ranger

I can't believe it's been that long since I blogged last! If this were a paying job, I'd be owing blogger some money! LOL Anyway, graduation is upon us and I've been busy, busy, busy making graduation cards for family members. This is one I am particularly pleased with and I just HAD to show it to you. IRL, it is very shimmery and I really, REALLY, really wish the camera had caught that more! :)

Supplies used: Cardstock; shimmer/glimmer cardstock (I hoarded it for so long that I forget what it's called or by whom! My bad!); organza ribbon; Prisma glitter; Pebbles pearlescent chalks; StampsHappen postcard stamp; Stampabilities sentiment stamp; OTC eyelet; ScrapGoods nailhead; ME rhinestone; Palette ink

This weekend I'll be busy creating Mother's Day cards! Then, I'm not sure, but there may be some wedding cards in the future as well! This is keeping me busy, since I am not able to get on the computer as much as I'd like to. Boy, if I had the time, I'd have some stories to tell you! So maybe it's NOT such a bad thing that I cannot get on here as often as I'd like! LOL ;)
