Badda Bing Butterfly

OMG!  Want a QUICK, one layer card?  Then, look no further!  When you need a card in a jiffy this is purrrfect! 

My girls love rainbows and butterflies so I just had to create a card to impress!  The *just for you* stamp is from the Pop-up Posies Designer kit in the Spring Catalog pg 18 and the ink is Rich Razzleberry.

I punched 2 of each color using the new Bitty Butterfly punch #129406. I glued the first one to the Whisper White card base then the second one, I creased the butterfly in half and attached it with a dimensional.  You could add a pearl or rhinestone to each one to give it some bling, too!  It'll only take a couple more seconds.  ;o)

Was I right or was I right, easie peasie!  Have fun!

Sorry, it's been a while since I've posted any stamping projects! I've just gotten a little lazy in that department while I've been starting and trying to build another business.  Nothing to do with MY creativity but actually some one elses.
Have you heard of Paparazzi?  No, not the crazy people with camera's that chase around famous people!  It's a jewelry and accessory direct sales company.  It's fun, affordable and fashionable items and the real kicker is that each piece is only $5!!! 
Feel free to check out my website HERE and... let me know if you'd like to have a Paparazzi Party or even join my team! 
Ok, back to stampin' business now!  Here is a card I made using the new 7/8" Scallop Circle punch (#129404 Spring Catalog pg 16) and *Celebrate* from the Feeling Sentimental stamp set in the Sale-a-bration brochure.  Yes, you can get this stamp set for FREE with a $50 order (before shipping & tax)!!!  Contact me for more info or check it out HERE

Yes, these are the same fun scrunched flowers I LOVE to make, just a wee bit smaller.  They are made with Pink Pirouette card stock.  The card base and layer are both Crumb Cake and the edges are distressed using the new Stampin' Distress Tool #127562.  What a great deal @ only $4.95!

I heat embossed *Celebrate* in Winter White embossing powder.  If you look close enough, you might notice but I purposely scattered the embossing powder and heated it from underneath so it wouldn't fly away.  Nice little touch to add a little sumpthin, sumpthin.

Thanks for stopping by!

45 little tidbits of Inspiration


I came across these inspiring quotes and thought I would share them with you. 
The 45 Lessons Life Taught Me

Written by Regina Brett, 90 years old, of the Plain Dealer, Cleveland , Ohio.

"To celebrate growing older, I once wrote the 45 lessons life taught me. It is the most requested column I've ever written.

My odometer rolled over to 90 in August, so here is the column once more:

1. Life isn't fair, but it's still good.
2. When in doubt, just take the next small step.
3. Life is too short - enjoy it..
4. Your job won't take care of you when you are sick. Your friends and family will.
5. Pay off your credit cards every month.
6. You don't have to win every argument. Stay true to yourself.
7. Cry with someone. It's more healing than crying alone.
8. It's OK to get angry with God. He can take it.
9. Save for retirement starting with your first paycheck.
10. When it comes to chocolate, resistance is futile.
11. Make peace with your past so it won't screw up the present.
12. It's OK to let your children see you cry.
13. Don't compare your life to others. You have no idea what their journey is all about.
14. If a relationship has to be a secret, you shouldn't be in it..
15. Everything can change in the blink of an eye But don't worry; God never blinks.
16. Take a deep breath. It calms the mind.
17. Get rid of anything that isn't useful. Clutter weighs you down in many ways.
18. Whatever doesn't kill you really does make you stronger.
19. It's never too late to be happy. But it's all up to you and no one else.
20. When it comes to going after what you love in life, don't take no for an answer.
21. Burn the candles, use the nice sheets, wear the fancy lingerie. Don't save it for a special occasion. Today is special.
22. Over prepare, then go with the flow.
23. Be eccentric now. Don't wait for old age to wear purple.
24. The most important sex organ is the brain.
25. No one is in charge of your happiness but you.
26. Frame every so-called disaster with these words 'In five years, will this matter?'
27. Always choose life.
28. Forgive but don't forget.
29. What other people think of you is none of your business.
30. Time heals almost everything. Give time time.
31. However good or bad a situation is, it will change.
32. Don't take yourself so seriously. No one else does..
33. Believe in miracles.
34. God loves you because of who God is, not because of anything you did or didn't do.
35. Don't audit life. Show up and make the most of it now.
36. Growing old beats the alternative -- dying young.
37. Your children get only one childhood.
38. All that truly matters in the end is that you loved.
39. Get outside every day. Miracles are waiting everywhere.
40. If we all threw our problems in a pile and saw everyone else's, we'd grab ours back.
41. Envy is a waste of time. Accept what you already have not what you need.
42. The best is yet to come...
43. No matter how you feel, get up, dress up and show up.
44. Yield.
45. Life isn't tied with a bow, but it's still a gift."

You might even print these out and read them every once in a while. Enjoy xo
