Blogger group #3 First Challenge Card

Here is my first card for our blogger group challenge. We were suppose to use orange and yellow as our main colors. I don't use much orange or yellow so this was a challenge for me. I think it came out okay though. I can't wait for the next challenge!

I love the saying on this card, it is a stamp from American Art Stamp. The angel stamp is also from them. I LOVE angels and when I found these stamps I was so excited.

I colored with my copics, another love, and of course the wings are done in.........STICKLES. I am really trying to NOT use stickles in everything I do but I just can't help it. I'm addicted to stickles.

I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving. My husband made us a wonderful dinner. We are getting tons of snow here in Germany. I think we have gotten more snow in the month of Novemeber then we got all season last year. I think we are going to have a rough winter ahead of us.

More letters...I'm on a LOTW kick!

I'm almost done with the swap I'm in with the LOTW's. This is the "E" in leaves and the "A" in Fall. I think the letter in Fall could have been a bit bigger and I'm having issues with finding a good way to get my baubles to stick. I don't have anything small enough in the way of adhesive so I used super glue...Not a good choice! It changes the color of the bauble (it is green) and it leaves a wet looking spot around the bauble. But I did see on Bella's blog today that she found these adhesive sheets that I think I'm going to order the next time I put in a bella order. But anyway, I hope you all have a great Thanksgiving!

I actually have been busy.......

Stamping that is! My friend Melanie has gotten me hooked on doing swaps on SCS so now I'm doing like 9 at a time. For me.....that's a lot. I'm working on letters for an LOTW swap she is hosting. So here is my letter "L" for Halloween!

I will have my first blogger #3 group challenge card to put up next week. I can't wait! I hope everyone has a good weekend. Today I am headed to the holiday Bazaar on base, they host it every year and it is full of German vendors! I'm hoping to get some Christmas gifts!

Too many bellas...not enough time!

Finally, I got some time today to do some stamping. Okay, so I only got two cards done but's something. These are for my secret sisters on SCS. I actually used stamped images that were sent to me. Boy, what a time saver. I didn't have to dig mine out and stamp and clean and whatever.

Can I just say that the camera never does your images justice! It misses all the sparkly bling! Speaking of sparkly bling....I was looking at another blog last night and I saw that my favorite stickles are now in distressed colors. That's right. I went right to ebay and bought all 12! Not a single project of mine goes without stickles......I just love them! I also just recently bought some more bellas since she was offering free shipping...can't pass that up and I just put in my first order with papertrey. I had never even heard of them until my lil' sis (secret sister) told me about SCS is bad for me!!!!!

Okay, on with the cards..................................................................................

My life wouldn't be complete without these three elements.....bellas, stickles, and copics!!!

No pictures today

That's right. I have nothing to show today! I feel like I do however need to keep in touch here especially since I am part of this new blogger group on SCS. I promise to have something to show, and maybe even brag about (if it comes out okay!!!) soon! I am taking my finals this week for my two classes and to be honest, I just want them to be over! It's stressing me out and my one release would be stamping but...don't have time for that. I feel horribly guilty if I am doing anything other than studying because I feel like if I have time to do something else I could be using that time to study. So I take my last test tomorrow and then I am done with classes until next week when the new term starts. So HOPEFULLY.....this weekend I will be able to get to that table! Plus, I need to put my November secret sister stuff together. So I'm off for more studying.......see you all around the blogs!
