Happy Friday!

Hi Everyone! Happy Friday to you!! I hope you had a great week and are ready for a fun or relaxing weekend!!

I finally got to do some stamping again yesterday. I feel so busy lately that I haven't even been thinking about stamping!! That's definitely a very sad thing!! Victoria came over again for a play date and we made a few cards together. I did manage to get one Stamp of the Week challenge card done for the A Muse Addicts site, this Love Bus card:

I put some Crystal Effects on the bus to make it glossy. While I had the Mushroom Trio stamp out I decided to do a mushroom card too!

While I was at the University Bookstore the other day I saw a super cute little notebook that had mushrooms on it and the sentiment that went with it was "Let Peace Grow", how cool is that?? I don't have a sentiment like that so Victoria and I were looking through the sentiments I had and decided we could put "Peace" from Peace on Earth MA and "grows" from Love Grows together to make "Peace Grows." I think it works well! I love it when an idea unfolds and works. I originally tried coloring in the mushrooms with Souffle Pens and they worked, but weren't giving a good variety of color, they looked too washed out, so I decided to paper piece them instead.

This is a donut card, even though it looks like a cupcake card!! LOL! (I try!) The cupcake image and black scallop are on the inside of the card and there's a punched out scallop circle on the front of the card so you can see the cupcake from the front of the card.

I have a couple ideas for Bernice, this one didn't quite work out how I hoped it would, I was hoping to do a quick easy card with her, but it ended up taking much longer to make this card than I expected. I masked off her lizard/rat and added the balloon. Doesn't she look just like me??? :D

And last but not least, I need to share these fabulous pictures of Victoria and I!!! LOL!!

We were playing with Photo Booth on my computer and trying to get a nice picture of the two of us to post on our blogs, but as I was adjusting the screen, I ended up focusing on our chests by mistake, so we decided to play it up and take a fun photo!! Victoria said, "Oh, it's one of those types of pictures!!" LOL!!

Then we couldn't stop laughing about how silly we are!!! And, yes, I was having a bad hair day and that is my messy office/craft room! That's ok though, sometimes we just gotta live life and not worry so much about what we look like, right?

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog today!!!

Hugs and blessings,

Your love bus and mushroom cards turned out great! Those Photo Booth pics are too funny! Mom is over at my house right now and she thinks we look like we spent the afternoon drinking margaritas rather than stamping! LOL!
