I love how bright & "cherry" this card is.  It's crisp and clean (even though the scan isn't super clear).  I love the Cherry Cobbler paper with the cherry stamp and the Cherry Cobbler buttons!  Coordination is PERFECT!  Order your supplies here.

I received a swap at convention that put my mind a turning by adding a colored circle underneath the lace ribbon border punch.  I put it to work on this card and really like the result.  It really brings out the flower image in the center of this punch.  Order your supplies here.

Button Snowman

I love snowmen so I was especially excited to use this stamp in the Button Buddies set!  Isn't he adorable?!?!  I used the new mini brads in the button to create his buttons.  I LOVE the new mini brads!  They are so cute and tiny! :)  Order your supplies here.

Birthday Snails

I think this snail is adorable in the Button Buddies stamp set.  I saw on our demo blog a similar card and decided the "late" birthday greeting was a perfect match for this stamp.  Can't get much simplier!

Twisted Flower

I decided to do something a bit different with this card and "twist" my layers rather than putting them straight.  The card looked okay straight...but it needed something different :)  I colored the baker's twine to match by laying the twine on my ink pad and using a sponge to push down on the ink pad as I'm pulling the twine through the ink.  Fun to have matching twine! :)  Order your supplies here.

Sad News

Stampin' Friends, I have to share some sad news. Our friend, Emily Wilson, passed away this morning. She'll truly be missed.  I know that we all looked forward to seeing her at every class.  I'll keep you updated on her services. At Saturday night's class, we'll be stamping a stack of cards for her family to use at this time made in her favorite color of purple.  If you haven't previously let me know you're coming, you're welcome to join us...even if you just want to stamp for Emily's family :)  Love you all!

ETA...Her services will be held September 22 at the LDS church building across the street from Mt. Miguel High School (contact me if you need an actual address).  A viewing will be held at 10:00am and funeral services beginning at 11:00am.

Baby Rattles

Stamping the baby rattles in three different colors and then adding the matching button is so easy with the Button Buddies stamp set!  The centers of the buttons are tied with the baker's twine!
