Silver Flowers

Good afternoon girls!! Today we had a dusting of snow outside. I was hoping for a little more snow - crazy as there were tons of accidents this morning with people out driving. It's all melted away now and the air is crisp and cold!!
Are you ready for the weekend? Sunday is going to be a great day!! There's the Club Anya blog hop in the morning (7 am to Noon) and then at 11 am (est) the PMS Party begins!! WooHoo! I can hardly wait!!! Both will be tons of fun I can tell you!! Stamping and blog hopping with my most favorite stampers in the world? I can hardly stand the wait!! Will you be there?
Today I wanted to share the ATC that I made for this month at my local stamp club. Our theme was to use black, white and silver as that is one of the gals favorite color combos. I just love this quote. It's from Paper Makeup Stamps and is the small one. I really love that Katie offers them in 2 sizes - how smart is she?!?!!??! I overstamped the quote in Silver ink with the Happy Harmony set from SU. I love that set and can't imagine ever getting rid of it. I used the Textile embossing folder for the base and the flowers were in the wedding section of Hobby Lobby. A whole bunch for only 77 cents - what a bargain!! As I was working on this it of course took a turn and I ended up with what you see here. It is definitely inspired by the Banana Split Sketch this week over at 2 Red Bananas. Another new awesome stamp store! So even though it doesn't use 2RB stamps, I'm going to enter it there too. And since I just got my order from there I might just have to make a second entry too!

I also wanted to share with you the Ready Set Create Altered Sampler. I am so happy to say that I have a project in this issue. It's an ezine so you download it and can browse through it right away! Several other gals from the Cuttlebug Challenge team have projects in there as well - and OH MY WOW!!! It's full of really wonderful ideas and I'm not just saying that because I'm in there!! *grin* It's only 4 bucks for 65 pages with very few ads - so you are getting tons of ideas!! Gotta love that!

Cassie,

You are the sweetest person in the world I loved your comment on my blog this morning about being leary of Jacquies blog Hilarious and I laughed out loud. I happened to be on the phone with Janna when I read it so she got a good laugh on that one too!!!!

Your cards are great and I just used my first Quote from Paper Make-Up too, but I guess you know that from the post you commented on LOL!!!!

I just want you to know Janna and I talk all the time about how sweet and kind you are and we just love your blog!!!!
