Rockabilly Cards with Stampin' Up's Grunge Rock and Mouthwatering Sets

Late Night Stamping with Deanna

Deanna and I were in a Rockabilly kind of mood when we stayed up until 2:00 am one morining. Deanna fround this ribbon at Hobby Lobby on one of their 50% off ribbon sales. The ribbon matches perfect with SU's Melon Mambo ink and paper.

I just had to use this ribbon when Deanna showed it to me. I was not sure that I would like the cherries in black when I started stamping....but,  I love it so much I am going to do this color combo again.

Deanna made this card. The glitter did not show very much in the picture; its on the dimond pattern part of the card. She used a card I did a few months ago as inspiration. I just love the bow on the button.

 The Skeleton is a Joliee product. We thougth that we had them in black but we could not find them in Deanna's stamp room, so I will be on the hunt for them later.

The skeleton has a ton of glitter on it. He is so cute!!!

Some new little baby Owls.

Spooky Bingo Bits Card as Homage to Paper Players 100th Challenge and Halloween Owls!

Happy 100th to Paper Players!!

I missed the 100th Challenge over at Paper Players but, I must have been thinking of them because I made this card using LeAnne's Sketch. This is one of my favorite sketches and when I had some friends over last week I made a bunch of these cards for them to make. I know what you are thinking "Halloween! What Crazy Girl"!!! I just can't control myself when it comes to that Holiday. I could just do Halloween all year! Now that would be a fun blog! lol

I just had to use the owl stamp!

I found this ribbon at Michael's craft store. Let me tell you the price.... are you sitting down? I got it for only 1.99 on sale, with 10 Yards!! Yes 10 Yards! I could not even believe it myself. It's beautiful and soft and comes in lots of colors, just as good as the SU ribbon that is 10.00 and also 10 yards... I know some of my SU pals might be upset by this but, I have a lot smaller budget this year and can't afford 10.00 ribbon.

Here is LeAnne sketch from Challenge #60
Loved it!!

I am sorry I missed joining the party but, I did go hop around and look at all the cards. It was like going down memory lane!

Yes I am still Obsessed with Owls!!

Ships Ahoy Card for A La Card Monkey Father's Day Challenge

Happy Father's Day!!!
My Husband loves ships and is a sailor at heart. He was in the Navy for over 20 years and spent most of that on a Submarine. He had a sail boat of his own for years and sailed almost everyday when he lived on Bainbridge Island.
So guess what... I sent him upstairs to my stash of stamps to dig out this oldie set from 2002. What a Sweetie!

I have had these buttons for over 10 years in my desk, rubbed the dust off and put them to use on this card.

I know that some guy would see this old rusty junk truck and say "looks like a fun weekend project" lol But we all know we would see it later on "Hoarders"
I think I can call this card Dusting off the old stuff!!! lol I have had this Alphabet set for so many years and only used it once.... gee's!!!

Spray Paint Party with Kim
Kim and I found this stuff at different Junk stores, or just stuff we already had.... but really needed some color! 

Here are a few of the things done. The really pretty chair is Kim's.  We ran out of paint! Darn it! I will have more pictures later. The paint is Rust-Oleum, chair is Satin "green apple", the frame is "berry pink" (Kim's favorite) and the tables are "aqua".

Ok.... here is a funny one for you. Kim has more paint on here feet then anything else!! Do You See The Strips of Paint!!! She had some sandals on that are now part Pink!

Great Grads Card for Graduation Challenge with Recollections Night and Fall Paper

A La Card Monkey Challenge #111!!

I am still having trouble with my neck and spending a lot of time at Physical Therapy. I went in today because a bone in my neck was stuck and OMG they twisted and turned me. Thank God my Husband was there this time to hold my hand. He will help me at home too because I forget everything that I should be doing. I have been so stressed out and that just makes it worse. So they were trying to get me to relax and I am really bad at that. lol

I was shopping at Michael's and found this new paper By Recollections. I know it's not fall but it was just to cute not to use this week.

This week at A La Card Monkey we are doing a Graduation theme with a sketch but, if you don't need a Graduation card.... Anything Goes, just use the sketch. Go Crazy with it!!! make the sketch your own! 

I used the Dazzling Details on the cap and the letter "G".

My friend Kim found this stamp set in a junk store for only $5.00!! Brand New!
