To all my Sassy Stampers......

I just need one moment to vent and then all will be well! When we decided to become a group we committed ourselves to that group. I am fully aware that we ALL have lives....myself included but come on could check into our forum thread every once in a while. Most everyone is keeping up there blogs (that isn't the issue) but there have been some complaints about fellow bloggers not leaving comments and we all know there have only been about 5 of us on the forum thread in the past few weeks.
So here is the link to check in......Sassy Stampers blog thread
Also, one other thing, we all wanted to do challenges and as of the last 2 or 3 rounds the showing has been horrible. You do realize that the hostess for that challenge put's time and effort into putting it together and keeping up with it, you would think we could show our appreciation by showing up for them and joining in once in a while. I know most of you are very involved in other challenges on SCS so maybe you could try to support our group as well!!! Here is the link to our 7th challenge........letstampnscrap
Please don't think I'm saying you have to be involved in every single thing every single day but lets just try to be supportive of each other, leave the comments we are to be leaving, keep up with our blogs, and join in and be active once in a while!!!
I love all of you and I enjoy each and every one of your blogs and contributions!

Blogger 3 Challenge #6 Man Card

Making a "man" card is not exactly my area. I don't have that many men in my life and my husband doesn't really appreciate my efforts so he doesn't get many of my cards!!! But our challenge for this round for our blogger group was to make a card for a man. It needed to have a solid piece of cardstock, a piece of DP, 2 stamps, and an embelishement.

I used my one and only lonely fella! I used a clear stamp but I dont' know where I got it from. My solid cardstock is from SU! (of course) my DP is from DCWV and my embelishment is a star button. It's a 4th of July card....the best I could figure out!

Just a few things

The past few days I have been trying to finish up my rolodex swap info. cards. Can I just say these were a labor of love! I wanted them to represent me so I used a few of my favorite things. Stickles, primas, pink, and ribbon.

I think I went through just about an entire bottle of silver stickles. I used the stickles on the primas to add some glitz and I also randomly dotted the paper with stickles. The other side of the cards has my personal info on them!

I also am in a great swap doing Mother's Day cards for a women's shelter. I love love love doing swaps but I love to do them even more when they are for a cause! These were the cards I made for the swap. I also went ahead and made one for my mom and my MIL....I'm ahead of the game!

I used copics to color (of course) stickles on the wings of the angels and an SU! brad. The stamp and saying are both from American Art Stamp. I am a huge fan of angels....I love their angel stamps.

Rolodex cards

I had been dreading putting these together for an SCS swap because I had never done them before and was worried about how they would turn out. Once I got started, it was really easy. I had a lot of fun putting them together. My only problem was how to decorate the front. April isn't the easiest month for decoration ideas.
For the tab, I printed the word "April" on the computer, then I stamped with my tabs SU! set and then punched it out with the SU! tab punch. I used SU! DP to cover them and used Martha Stewart ribbon. I just used the SU! circle punches, the word "friend from one of the new SU! hostess sets and the eyelet is also SU! Simple enough right?! Oh and I can't forget the baubles from Stamping Bella!
