ScrapTiffany Blog Hop!!!!!

i'm pre-posting this because time is of essence ever since we had our baby girl....

April 13, 2011 is the ScrapTiffany Blog Hop!!!!

for this blog hop....
i want to share some cards i made recently...
thank you cards...
birthday card....

here they are:

used bunches of crate paper, tone-on-tone punched stars.
i love doing tone-on-tone, it just gives it that nice unique touch.
i also love to deck out the inside of my cards as well, as you can tell.
don't just do the outside, deck out the inside of your cards too.
the inside matters too.

here's another with some tone-on-tone, punched stars (i love my star punch by fiskars!):

used lotz of pink paislie papers, love it.
anchored the blue punched stars with foam adhesives and added the buttons for the final touch.
don't you just love the punched border too.
used ek success for that one.

lastly,  a card for a wonderful family who has helped me out while my hubby was deployed:

love the my mind's eye papers and embellies for this one!
the chipboard was first sprayed w/ glimmer mist in patina and then on only the right side of it w/ glimmer mist in slate to give it that shadowy effect.

hope you enjoyed my projects.
get going with those cards!
i would love if you could share a few w/ me and the ScrapTiffany Design Team!

up next for the blog hop:  Norazah!
so go check her out!

have a fun time blog hopping!

she's here!!!!!

i've been totally slacking off posting, huh?
i've just been so tired...
preoccupied with the pregnancy...i'm 38 wks now...
and busy since our daughter came in from idaho for spring break.

but i have managed to scrap some cards and a layout.

today is the reveal challenge on ScrapTiffany using a sketch by Abby.

here's my take using a few of the ultrasound pix of our baby daughter, Selene:

and the lil thangz that matter too:

materials:  my mind's eye, amm, stickles by ranger, american crafts, fiskars, ek success, aleene's

so ready to have her and hold her in my arms.
she's lowered major.
