Hey Everyone!

I just wanted to jump on and apologize for being MIA!! :D Life has gotten crazy and zapped me of my creative juices. :D

I'll be taking a break for awhile but hope to start creating again in the next couple months.

Hugs and blessings to all of you!

Today is my hubby's bday!! Happy Birthday, Honey! I did make him a card and will post it soon but for today I'll share a card I made for my good friend's son, for his birthday this week:

I used A Muse's new Coral stamp and A Treasure sentiment as well as Snorkel Boy which came out this past year. I used some Sky Blue Pearls to finish it off.

Happy Friday!

Sea of Love

Hello there!! Yes, I'm still around! ... and I'm still searching for my crafty Muse, but hoping she's close by and ready to stay for awhile. I've been slowly working on rearranging and cleaning my craft room, so hopefully once that gets done I'll feel less cluttered and able to focus better!

A Muse has a fun new stamp release for Valentine's day that is very versatile and can be used for many other occasions throughout the year. I just started playing around with them and here's the first card I created using the adorable new Jellyfish stamp and a couple of old classics, Waves and Hi friend:

Hope you're doing well! Happy new year to you!!!

Cyber Hugs!!

New Moon

Hey there!

So I'm leavin on a jet plane for Vegas today! I get to go see the premiere of New Moon while I'm there and have a visit with my friend Jennie!! :D I'm so excited!

Jennie's awesome! She sent me the Twilight tin stamp set from Barnes and Noble as an early bday present! Such a fun collector's item! I opened it up right away to make her a thank you card:

Hope you are all doing great! For all you Twilight fans out there that are gonna be seeing the movie this week, have fun!! We'll all be together in spirit!! :D

Happy Birthday Jake!

Today is my son's 10th birthday! I can't believe he's in the double digits now!! Poor kid has had a rough week with the flu and is just now getting over it, so we'll be extending his birthday celebration all week with the family.

Here's the card I made for him:

(A Muse sentiment, notecard and heart twinkle sticker, Martha Stewart Skull and Bones Punch, Great Impressions paper piercing template, SU Key Tag Punch, Designer Label Punch, brads and 1 3/8" circle punch)

For the longest time when I'd ask him what he wants to be when he grows up, he'd say he wants to be a nice pirate that has his own ship and crew and gets to sail all over the world looking for treasures! Here's hoping he has a year full of treasures and adventures.

A Muse-Bouche Day 5, Expressions of Gratitude

It's release day for A Muse's new product line!! Gorgeous new stamps, papers and accessories for you to feast on!! :D

Here's another sample using some of these beautiful products:

New Products used: Chrysanthemum Open, Chrysanthemum Solid, Shimmer Couture paper in Chocolate Petite Damask and Mango solid, Latte Pearls.

I inked up the Chrysanthemum Solid stamp with Dandelion and Pear Tart Memento inks and lined it up with the Chrysanthemum Open stamp to fill it in, then used a little bit of Pumpkin Smooch to add a little shimmer to the flower. I lightly stamped the Chrysanthemum Solid stamp a couple more times to add in the bg. Here's a closer up shot of the flower colored with the Smooch, not sure if the shimmer is very noticeable in the photo for you:

And, I tried to pick up some of the shimmer of the Couture paper too:

Hope you've enjoyed the sneaks this week!!! These are some of my favorite products A Muse has had to offer, to date!! And that's saying a lot because they have SO MUCH fabulous stuff!!
