The theme she picked to accompany the color selections was Birthday!! So I immediately went into my Paint Shop program and made these balloons to celebrate her challenge. I Love 'em!
So as always...on to the challenge. I DID NOT make a birthday card, but keeping with the theme chosen, made a birthday book.
I started by taking a composition book from the dollar store and used an x-acto knife and a metal ruler to cut off the binding. Then I FINALLY dusted off my Bind It All (that has never actually been used for a project) and covered the covers with Chocolate, then punched out the pages and covers.
Next I layered the Fizz and Lemon and included the polka dot parade paper that had the Plum pudding in it. Is that Cheating? No answers needed I don't care, it counts in my world...lol. I wrapped the saddle stitch Fizz ribbon into a bow and attached the whole thing to my book.
Last I took little pieces of fizz card stock and made tabs (which I mistakenly hand wrote, next time I will take a bit more time and stamp with simple Alpha) I also need to work out the spacing of the tabs. But over all I am very happy with it.

My darling boss from Gaslamp Village Web Design Studio came over last weekend (with her eye Candy on her arm so he could have a look at my leaking ceiling...lol) and we had coffee and she gave me a little pressie for taking calls for her a while ago. It was $100 gift certificate to one our LSS. So, the point of my chattering, I went today and bought a ton of stuff including this new beautiful paper. I added some vintage lace, bling from Michael's and some cute felt letters!
Now go check out my loonie friends and see what they made.....Don't forget to link us up if you play along! Happy Friday and see you again soon!

The rows of little stamp flowers are from Papertrey Inks Around & About set! Which I love! I accented the stamped flowers with some bling flowers and then added some primas. I also stamped the straight Sentiments from around & about onto my PTI fresh snow twill with pure poppy ink.
This is the inside of my card. I finished it off to match entirely to the front of the card!
Thanks for visiting today! See you again soon and hopefully for some new KW Color Inspirations and maybe some old ones as well!
It is a pretty simple card and I love it. I started on the PTI new True Black card stock and covered it with this sparkle damask pattern paper. Then I added strips of ribbon across. Then I filled the gaps between the ribbon with the sentiment strips from Around & About stamped in pure poppy, ripe avocado & Lemon Tart.
Here is a closer look at the stamped words. I love those sentiment strips they are so perfect for SO many things! I had a lot of fun making this card with the KW Challenge and I will have another one to post tomorrow (in a few hours) for the Loonie Stampers Challenge as well.
Thanks for visiting!

Anyway, because I have a few of the TE sets now I decided to get her stamp storage case, um yeah I love it!! The vday cupcake set, had to have it!!! I can not wait to get these little cupcakes dirty!!! I also picked up one of these calendar hanging holder thingies? Yes that is the technical name that I am giving it...SO cute. Now all I have to do is figure out just what exactly am going to do with it...LOL Isn't that the grand question after all.
OoooooooooooooooooooooooooooH, I know that picture above has me drooling as well. This is a close up picture of how my yummiest (word or not I typed, mmmm hmmm I did!) Papertrey * American Craft ribbons. Which can only mean....I did it, I bought a ribbon ring. I have to say I LOVE it. Although I do have the coolest ribbon holder thingy my dad built and I will keep it I just love how the ribbon ring neatly organizes, holds it there with no slipping or falling and the whole time turns my hoarded ribbon into room decor!! Yup! I will be going back for more!!!!!
After my Youngest Daughter, McKenzie, saw this ribbon hanging she blurted out, Oh Mommy I have pretty stringy thingy too? Such a funny girl.
Ok well I will be back again tomorrow with a new cute card to show you. Lets just say that I have some new Martha to show ya!

I made a set of 8: Each set has an envelope, one piece of "dressed" stationary and an additional blank page to provide more text room. I like it!

Awwww! Don't they all look cute!! I love them so much I may do valentine ones for her class...Heck they are simple enough I could do one for each of the 100 kids in her school (not that I am that crazy)
Hopefully I will be back in a few days with pictures of the Birthday party!!

Today is my Oldest Brother's Wife's birthday (did you get all that?) anyway our local radio station is currently doing a contest for a "Jet away to Jamaica" trip, and she was selected as a finalist a few days ago. Anyway, happy Birthday to Rhonda and I hope by the time you get this card I have to add a Congratulations stamp to the inside. The contest finishes on the air today!

And now I bring you....the reason I am not sleeping much! I dare to click the picture and look at a larger view....it really is much scarier!!
This ......is my ceiling after too much partying with the snow that melted into my attic and through my hallway ceiling. Just for the record this ceiling is plaster which makes matters worse. How many people do you know that actually still handle plaster??? Not many my friends. So I am hoping before my oldest brothers wife wins a trip to Jamaica he will come over and tell e he can help since he is in the drywall profession. This folks is going to be a damn long weekend as we are supposed to have all that nice "melt the snow off your roof and into your attic again" kind of weather. For the first time in a loooooooong time I have a reason to wish for a cold weekend. My boss/friend called and said she is going to lend me her boyfriend (get your minds out of the gutter) as he owns his own roofing company in Edmonton and said he will try and patch us up this weekend when he is here.

Isn't this one fun? See I told you that you didn't want to miss it!! This one was Regan's turn to pick and she wanted us to use pink to alter any item...CAN NOT BE A CARD...that is SO fun!!!
This is the outside of my "All Wrapped Up" box! It's all wrapped up in Raspberry fizz paper and fizz mix pattern papers. The outside is relatively blank but I am unsure what I am going to use this for just yet. I think I may make it a stationary set and add it to my store.
Here is the beautiful inside...I am SO in love with this patterned paper. I think it is Papertrey's best yet and the rumor in blog world is they will release a stamp set that matches those pretty florals this month!!!

And of course here is the inside picture, which I have not done lately on all my cards. I used layered pure poppy under the white but scalloped the edge first. I thought it really dressed up the inside, enough that the only thing I felt it needed was a couple little red apples. Please Note: These apples are from the Limitless Labels set from PTI not the Teacher's Apple Set.

Tell me that these 4 colors are not FANTASTIC together?!?!?! CHAR picked it good this week!!! I loved them so much that once I did the first card, I was SO inspired I did a second and a third! I also do not see and end in the near future of using these colors. So Enjoy my massive post today and don't forget to visit my girls.
Don't you just love the dimension? Ok I don't care if you don't, I do! haha
This next card, I stamped the baja layer with the swirly flower from the PTI Garden of Life set in fresh snow. (it matches the swirls in the heart, that Nichole is so clever). Anyways I embossed it with some clear sparkle stuff and stamped the mini heart all over with versamark. then I added the spring moss ribbon over scalloped red. I stamped the sentiment also from the Heart Prints set. Last I stamped with fresh snow onto pure poppy card stock and punched it out. Then I added the eyelet and string to make them into balloons. I may go back on this card and add crystal effects to them to add more of a balloon look to them.
This card was ridiculously easy peezy! I layered the tree colors after adding ribbon. Tied a quick bow and added it. Then I used glue dots to adhere the leafy ribbon that my dear friend Char bought for me (Thanks Babe!) then I stuck some SO CUTE Martha Gerbs to the card. Quickly Stamped the bloom where you are planted sentiments from Spiral Bouquet and presto. Cute Card, Little Time.
