woohoo! i got to play with Kazan's sketch over at 2sketches4you. i LOVE looking at the incredible talent, getting ideas for my own cards, and of course, playing along! this time i decided to use some of my favorite colors (to wear and use) RED + BLACK. i love this card that resulted from Kazan's sketch. sooo elegant, don't you think? i love the gems, the ribbon (i tied it so well, if i say so myself!), and the flowers too :) ah, i just <3>
again, this is a card i used the damask stamp on, plus DeNami Designs "Greetings" stamp. i love the fact that it goes with just about any combo. (have you noticed that i "love" a lot of things lately? it might be the fact that i'm still on SPRING BREAK and it's having a positive impact on me. sure hope so :)
oh, and you've probably noticed that my blog post title mentioned "birthday"... and i'm so excited to tell you why. this year i asked for a Cricut Expression (from multiple givers, mind you), and yesterday & today my mom and i went shopping, found the best price, and bought one! :) *BIG SMILE* now i just have to wait a month until May 1st when i can actually open it up and use it! :) we also went cartridge shopping (just looking, though) and i found a couple of cartridges i'll probably want, but i was wondering... what's your ABSOLUTE FAVORITE cartridge and why?
i'm interested to know what you say, because i really want to get the most use out of whatever i buy... you know, not just using part of it. oh, part of the shopping process was to go to Costco (that's where we bought it... $279.99--best price around) and i got some more ribbon :) haha, i know you're saying... she doesn't need any, but it was too cute. red with white polka dots (grosgrain), zebra stripe (satin), and light blue with white stitching on the edge (grosgrain). 50 yds each spool, $6.99 a spool... can we say YUM!?
ahh, i know this has been a long post, but you can probably tell i'm excited. seriously can't wait until my birthday. usually i feel like people forget it because it's the first of the month, and people aren't thinking ahead (i am NOT complaining, just my observations), but this year i'm so stoked :)
thanks so much for looking, and have a great day... i love reading your comments, and i'd LOVE to hear your answers to my plethora of questions! XOXO, take care!
