Life is good

It doesn't take much for life to be good---coffee & a cupcake will do the trick for sure. :) I love this to-go cup in the new release-it would be great for making gift card holders for coffee cards, I know I have lots of people who love those! You all know how much I love the cupcake, so it's pretty easy to see why this whole scene makes me super happy.

Ok, did you notice the new 4bar card? Pretty pretty pale blue...the colors being released are gorgeous-so soft. Highly recommend picking some of those up along with stamps you're dying to have!

One more day til you can shop shop shop!

Another sneak...

How cute is this little guy? I thought he would pair perfectly with the A Muse tent (minus the feet)-a great summer camping scene! The sentiment is new as well, and every time I see it or use it....the song runs through my head-again, & again & again! :)

Hope you've been enjoying the sneaks-remember YOU too can have all these on May 1st!

...until we meet again.... :)

Phew, that was fun! :)

I thought I'd post my cards I made for the VMAA challenges last night-it was a blast making them at the A Muse retail store with Novell, Heather, Rhonda & Linda-such a fun group to stamp with!

First challenge: No Embellishments

I love this birdie from the last release-& I had yet to ink him up! I'm not overly thrilled with how this one turned out...I think I might re-do & post the new one...I think it has something to do with the white scallop-hmmm. :)

Second challenge: Glitter

OK-the girls couldn't believe that last night was the first time I had ever used my Seattle girl stamp--what took me so long?!? She's pretty cute in her yellow slicker....& the raindrops are the perfect addition!

Third challenge: Sketch

I have NEVER done a sketch before-EVER. So this was a challenge....that thankfully, Rhonda helped me make MUCH cuter than I had originally planned out. I made my card & had the upper left area all blank & blue---& she gave me the smart idea to add the sweet shop! That is WHY you stamp with other people I tell you! :) Thanks again Rhonda!

Fourth challenge: B&W

This card is much better in real life-that black glitter on the chairs is pretty cool. I'm actually happy with this card-& I thought for sure this would be the hardest challenge for me.

Fifth challenge: Weekend

I loved Linda's challege to define "weekend" for yourself. I L*O*V*E looking at open houses on Sundays & am always plotting which ones I would live in. The cute house on this card is probably the closest I'll get for awhile to a new I'll just keep dreaming on the weekends!

Thanks again to Geeta, Michelle, Jennie & Rhonda for putting all the challenges together-it was great fun!

I'll be back tomorrow with another Sneak Peek!

Sneaks are back!!

I love sneak peek time---so fun. Here is a card with 2 new images, birdhouse & song bird....& I love them!! How cute is this bird? With her little house? I love it. :) I love all these colors together & the little sparkle Miss Birdie has makes her that much more special!

Enjoy looking around all the A Muse gals blogs-I've seen some great stuff out there! Have fun tonight too with VMAA-I can't wait!

How exciting is this? A Muse Instructor Michelle White is opening up her very own shop---filled with the ENTIRE line of A Muse goodness!! Pretty sure that it's going to be the best store ever...& it's in sunny San Diego, & sunny sounds real good right about now. :) If you're in the area catch the opening on May 1st, or the GRAND opening with A Muse Queen Linda on May 31st-so fun! Hmmmm, maybe I need a vaca. :)

VMAA #2-so fun!

The 2nd installment of VMAA ( Virtual Meeting of A Muse Addicts) is happening this Saturday, April 26 from 8-10pm CST. I wasn't able to participate last time, but will be heading to the A Muse retail store to meet up with some other A Muse gals to have a fun night of stamping. If you haven't yet joined the addicts forum head here & register. They have a ton of fun stuff going on all the time...and of course it's all A Muse!! (What could be better?) :)

Hope to see lots of people stamping on Saturday!!

Spring?? Who knows.

I thought I'd post this card in the hopes of spring colors bringing spring weather. :) The weather here has been the NUTS this last weekend...believe me, the last thing I would have wanted to be doing is golfing-you would have been in rain, snow, hail, thunder & sun all throughout your game. Crazy.

I do love the color scheme happy & calm. I think the Elzy golf bag goes quite nicely with the new A Muse golf girl...perfect to a TEE...get it? HAHAHA. Yeah, I'm not funny. :)

Hope someone out there has been enjoying some Spring weather!

I feel like...

SHOPPING!!! I've had this itch to get myself to stores and do some retail therapy lately. :) I'm not really one who gets excited to go shopping, but for some reason, I've got it on the brain. I would love to have this, & maybe these....& these too. :)

So little shopping Elzy is perfect for the mood I'm in...I wish I had that many bags of fun new things! I wish the sentiment had shown up a bit better, but oh well-I KNOW she's having fun. :)

Thank you for all the get well messages...I'm feeling great, no more cold! That means I should have some new cards to post soon...

Just wanted to say thanks again! :)

I caught the nasty cold bug that's been going around.

So the fact that I was planning on posting this card today that I was going to give to my mom, is fitting for me too. :) The colors in this card-even the brown-really cheer me up, which you need when you have cough due to cold. :) I love the pop that the Lime Green grosgrain stitch ribbon gives to the whole card, I'm telling you this ribbon is super.

To anyone who's under the weather.....feel better. (she says blowing her nose). :)

Sweet bird

Really, I love this bird & her little bee friend. It's such a versatile stamp which is one of my favorite things about it. This card was super easy & really came together after I added the Popsicle Pink stitched grosgrain from A Muse-this ribbon is the bestest. :)

Enjoy your day, it's sunny here....HOORAY!!!
