to change my mind . . . correct?

I have decided to stay with my Splitcoaststampers blog!  Even though I love the layout of the Typepad blog and wish I had some of the features here, I will tweak this one!  I’ve noticed that since the majority of my work is here and I can’t export it over . . . that too much is lost!

I’m sorry for any confusion I have caused any of you and just ask that you bear with me . . . you know,

I am BAD!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The Dancing Nuns!

I made this card (Ode to Ouiser Boudreaux) last October for my mother to give to one of her friends for her birthday.  Well, my mother has a friend in Florida who has a birthday this coming week, and she asked me to make one more.   She’s quite sure that her friend will thoroughly enjoy it!

Quite frankly, this is one card that I myself enjoy making . . . it makes me want to put in “Steel Magnolias” and watch it once again!  Someday I will find the perfect images to work with all the one-liners in the movie .. . .  I’m working on it!


The nuns were colored with Copic Markers and then die cut/embossed with Spellbinders™ Circles.  Instead of using pearls on this card, I decided to keep it more simple and used White Opal Liquid Pearls.  I doubled one of the new Spellbinders™ Borders (Fair Isle) for my border at the bottom on the card.  The computer generated sentiment is tied to a vintage button from my stash.

Here’s the inside


I hope you are enjoying your weekend!  Remember  . . . life is short, enjoy the adventures of each day!

Happy Monday!  I hope you had a great weekend and if you are home and not at CHA, that you’ve been blog browsing like I have.  I can’t seem to get enough photos of all the new product and my buds having fun . . . . as I sit in my recliner . . . saddened that I’m not there . . . For those of you posting, PLEASE keep it up!

Since I can’t show you any new product from CHA, I can share something I received from The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store  last week.  I not only got The Stamp Simply Lilac Avenue Kit, but I also got the new JustRite Seeds of Kindness and My Garden Sets!

Here’s my first card made with The Stamp Simply Lilac Avenue Kit!  The ribbon that comes with this kit is absolutely luscious and the paper . . . flocked, glittered, shiny  . . . just gorgeous!


After embossing the petunia in gold embossing powder, I water colored the image with Ranger Distress Reinkers.  Oh, and the image is stamped on white illustration board and then die cut/embossed with Spellbinders™ Labels One.  KaiserCraft Pearls were used to line the top of the Spellbinders™ Lattice Border.

That’s all I have right now, but I will be back later.

Remember, life’s short . . . . enjoy today’s adventures!
