Click this thing on?

I am here! Things have been crazy around here.
BUT I have been scrapping!!! 

First up check  out the May Arts blog for some AWESOME give-a-ways!!!

My post is up on how to embellish your ribbon. 
It's all about stamping on your ribbon. I suggest using ribbon that doesn't have
a lot of cotton fibers in it b/c it will bleed. I used Stazon  and it works
GREAT on this ribbon. 

Of course, I used THREE kinds of Core on here...Vintage (red), Core Couture (Black) and Glitter Silk (green).
The stamps I got from Our Craft Lounge where holiday ones so I stayed with that theme. This little Moos guy is the CUTEST. 

And of course the video :):):)

Cheery Lynn

GOOD Morning!!!
Head over to the Core Blog this
week for a chance to win some Core Goodies.

We are doing a week long blog swap with Cheery Lynn.
They have some awesome dies and embossing plates.

Here is a card I created for a Wedding I went to this past

I used a dauber and applied some Tim Holtz Distress Inks to
the embossed image to show off the cool texture.
I even embossed the Crate die ;)

Stamps are Gel a Tins (numbers)

Happy Mother's Day!

Shouldn't every day be mother's day??

It should!

When I saw this Get Picky challenge I almost fell over. I have these photos and
I saved this butterfly from the hanging plant brian and the boys
got for me for Mother's Day. They always get me a few of these and I
just love them! 
That and a case of beer. What more can a mom want???  :):):)
