Please forgive me for my sporadic postings as of late.  Lots of personal family issues and my own health issues going on.  I was to the doctor today and hopefully we have some new plans in place and I will be feeling better soon.  Thanks so much for your patience.

The Beautiful You  stamp set makes such a statement and it is so easy to use.  I stamped the dress in three of our current In Colors and added the sentiment and I had a card in a matter of minutes.

"OSAT Blog Hop – Birthday Bash”

Welcome blog hoppers!  It's that time again.  Time for the OSAT blog hop and what could be a better theme than birthdays?  Yeah, my birthday is this month.  I like to affectionately call this the month of me. 😀  I think that everyone's birthday month should be all about them,  So I was happy for this month's hop.  My 3D project this month is actually something I've been wanting to make in like forever and I'm super happy with how it turned out.  I hope you like it.

I purchased the Succulent Bundle and I'm now just getting around to using it. Winter is not my friend and I haven't been feeling the best.  Won't go into all that, but I'm glad I was able to finally play with this bundle.  It has so many possibilities.  It has a lot of Clear Wink of Stella on it.  Have you tried Wink of Stella?  It is one of the best things ever.  Gives you glitter without the mess. It is hard to photograph and I apologize for that.  These look more like flowers, but you will see in my 3D project that they can be succulents as well.

Now onto my 3D piece.  I bought some frames that my dad had made that he put in our garage sale a couple of years ago.  Yes, I did say bought.  That's for you dad in case you are reading this.  He likes to tease us about how we come "shopping" at their house, but I really did pay him for them when we divided up the cash.  There we got that taken care of. 😆  Well they sat in the basement for a year after that, then the following year I painted them, but still didn't get anything made with them and then this past Fall, Frank put the chicken wire on them for me and TADA!!!!

I am so happy with how it turned out.  I knew what I wanted to do, but it took me awhile from the conception in my head.  I'm sure I'm the only one that this happens to.  😉

Yes there is Clear Wink of Stella on these.  I so wish it photography better.  I sponged the succulents with Sweet Sugar Plum and that didn't seem to be enough so I added some Old Olive.  I hot glued them to the frame that I had sanded a bit to make it a little distressed. Oh and then I glued some Spanish moss around them to finish it off.

Here is a close up of the banner pieces.  I used the 1-1/2" space on the banner punch for the Emerald Envy back layer and then I ran it through the Hexagon Dynamic Textured Embossing folder.  The top layer was stamped using the Beautiful Banner stamp set (I got this specifically in mind for this project) and then the letters were stamped with the Layered Letters set.  They were stamped with Mint Macaron and Emerald Envy.  I will have the list of all products used on the bottom of this post if you are interested.  

Well I hope you've enjoyed my projects and will continue on around the hop to see what everyone else has come up with.  Oh and by the way.............Happy Birthday to me!!!!  Yes, I do think my birthday should be a national holiday.  My mom always made our (me and my two sisters) birthdays so special that I've always liked my birthday.  While I know some don't like to celebrate their birthdays it sure beats the alternative. 😉

"OSAT Blog Hop – All You Need is Love”

Welcome to my blog and the OSAT Blog Hop - All You Need is Love!  There is going to be some amazing projects this month even though while I'm writing this I have no idea what everyone else has made, I do know that I am hopping with some of the most amazing and talented bloggers there are.  It's going to be great!  So lets get started.  I knew in my mind what products I wanted to use for this hop because I had some new products that I was dying to use. Here is my card.

The way this photographed wasn't the best.  It was after dark when I took my pics and I tried the best I could with my lighting set up, but I think you'll see it much better in the final photograph.  I had to use the gorgeous Falling in Love DSP from the Occasions catalog.  The minute I saw that paper I knew it was a must have.  The designs are sooooo pretty,  I also used the ribbon from the SAB catalog.  That ribbon is the best and you get both silver and gold in a 2 pack and is one of your choices with a $50 order during SAB.  I then pulled out a couple of favs from last year that are in the current catalog....Bloomin' Heart Thinlits and also the banner in this is from the Large Numbers Framelits?  Do you have those?  To me they are a must because well let's face it the heart is just gorgeous all by itself and the numbers with the banner can be used for lots of occasions as well.   I popped the Bloomin' Heart up with some dimensionals and those flowers inside the heart make it super easy to put the dimensionals behind them.

Now onto my 3D project.  3D projects have always been my soft spot when it comes to crafting.  I love to make little things that can become gifts or decorations.  My brand new Window Box Thinlits was going to fit the bill.  When I showed my daughter what my 3D project was she immediately asked if I could make her one for her Valentine decorations.  She reminded me it had been since 2014 since I had made her a Valentine decoration.  I've given her cards with candy goodies and usually a gift card, but I guess it's been awhile since I gave her a decoration.  I feel bad that I haven't, but it makes me feel good that she's noticed and even knew the year.  I'm thinking when she decorated for Valentine's she knew how long it had been because I date the stuff I give them.  I think handing down homemade things is so important and want my girls to have fond memories when they pull their collections out.

This box to me is so elegant and I filled it with chocolate peanut butter hearts wrapped in silver foil to match the silver ribbon.  I cut 2-1/2" squares for the six sides of the box and that is the same DSP I used on my card.  To finish it off I used the Thoughtful Banners bundle to add a I LOVE YOU on the top.  I punched some Blushing Bride glimmer paper using the Confetti Hearts punch and added one to each side of the banner.  To attach the banner I used dimensionals once again.

A Good Stamping Day

Hey all!  I don't know about where you all come from, but this winter here in Michigan has been so very dreary.  The sun hasn't shown its face in days and they weather people are saying it's going to b another week before we see it. Yikes!  It makes me so tired and sleepy and I don't feel like doing anything, even stamping. I know gasp!!!  Well I fought it off and headed to my office today to stamp. My office/stamp room is in the basement which can make it worse, but I turned on all the lights and brightened the place up. I started to stamp and I feel so much better tonight.

First I'll share the card I sent to my two Survivor group members that I owed cards to. I was Hannah and ended up in the top three so I sent cards to the other two.

Ok, I tried last night to post this from my Ipad and for some reason I could not get the pictures to post and finally just went to sleep.

Here's a couple of fun samples for you.

Isn't this chick just the cutest?  There's actually chickens that look like this.  Well maybe not the colors I've used, but ones that have these fun head and tail feathers.  This stamp set can be gotten for free with a $50 order right now during Sale-a-bration.  I will list all the items use to make this below.  

This pretty lady was fun to make.  I did some paper piecing with the Sending Love DSP stack.  OK, I'm going to get this to post and will be back tomorrow with some more fun ideas for you.
