Baja Flower

Here is a card I made awhile back that I meant to get posted....  I really like how this card turned out.

Stamps: Fifth Avenue Floral 113734
CS: Baja Breeze 111352,
Not Quite Navy 100867, &
Crumb Cake 120953
DSP: Elegant Soirée 115657
Classic Ink Pad:
Soft Suede 115657
Jewel: Basic Pearls 119247 (3 big ones)
Ribbon: Seam Binding: Very Vanilla 120999 (approx 11")
Big Shot 113439
Textured Impressions Embossing Folder: Elegant Lines 119277
Dotto 103305
Mini Glue Dots 103683
This card is pretty straight forward... Emboss the background, stamp the image, and glue down the layers.  Now before you glue down the DSP we will do the scrunchy ribbon.  Fray the end of the ribbon and pull on one "hair" of the ribbon while you scrunch up the ribbon length.  When I get about halfway I do the same at the other end, so not to risk pulling the hair out the whole way and losing my scruch!!!  Then I used a couple of glue dots to hold down the ribbon and I wrapped it around the DSP and then I glued down the DSP.
Have a great weeekend!

Time flies!!!

My goodness I can not believe it has been this long since I last posted....Time seems to have gotten away from me. 
Since then we have added to our family... we have a new puppy, a girl , Zoe.  She is a sweetheart and has kept me very busy.  She will turn 3 mos next week and is growing fast.  She is a mix between a golden retriever and a german sheppard.  This was quite new to me as I never had a dog before, let alone a puppy.  Wow, I think it is more tiring then a baby!!!  She was getting up in the night at first, only the odd time now.  She wanted to be near me and not left in the baby gated off kitchen, so if I left the room she would start barking.  Let me say I am glad we got her the end of May and not Sept.  As for a few weeks I did not get to see any tv and if it had been  in the fall I would have missed all the premieres!!!  Things are slowly returning to normal.  I have been busy getting ready for the end of school teacher gifts and cards.  I took a couple of pictures today, but I do not have time right now to upload them so it might have to wait till the weekend.
So I will get back to posting again, sorry about that .   Please forgive me!!!  Looks like rain the next few days so I will hopefully get some more time to play with all the great new products from my pre-order. 
Have a great day!
