You Light Up My Life

Hope you are having a wonderful weekend. I have been busy organizing, stamping, re-organizing, stamping and and re-organizing again. Oh and throw in a snotty teenager, several loads of laundry, some yard work and a big fat head ache and then you have a view of my real life. Fun.

I am still playing around with my Photo Studio in a Box. Today I tried it with the black background. Not sure if I like it....kind of makes my card look like it's floating in mid-air.

**Stampin Stuff** The card base is SU Vanilla and the sentiment is one that I made myself {yes I made the sentiment stamp with my JustRite Imagebox Professional System <--------click here to watch a step by step tutorial}. Anyway, I made the sentiment to go with this chandelier Sizzix die that I have had but don't use enough because I didn't have a coordinating sentiment... but I do now. The black organdy ribbon is from SU and the beautiful charm is from a broken Pottery Barn candle holder. I salvaged the crystals as I thought they would make great card charms and they are perfect with my die cut and sentiment.

**Random Blogging** I got my very first Paper Trey Ink order this week. I got the entire circle Nestabilities set....including scallops. Now I just have to figure out how to make them work in my Big Shot. I also bought the new release Pond Life..I am in love with that cute turtle.

Oh geeeshhh....I hate animal stamps...I forgot. LOL Well actually let me clarify that statement, I hate animal stamps that have animals doing human behaviors...such as riding a bike, drinking coffee, watching TV and get the idea.

I also got Out on a Limb and Wedding Favors. I adore the cards I have seen with Out on a Limb and the Wedding Favors set I need for JustRite card samples I am making for the Stationary Show next month. We have a wedding theme going and I thought these little sentiment would work well with the monogram stampers. to visit Jen's mom. She is recovering well and is finally off the ventilator. Yeah! Thanks for all your thoughts and has been very scarey the last three weeks.
See ya on the blog!

I like the black background effect. It ties in with the elegant and subdued mood of the card. I really love the little charm.
