Another Dustin Pike card

Here is another Dustin Pike digi stamp card that I did. The bug in the background is from Betsy The Beekeeper (Stampin' Up!). I am going to send him along with the Dudley dragon cards for a swap I joined. Yup... took two spots, but I love Dustin Pike. (Thanks Jennifer K. for turning me onto him and digi stamps!).

Snowed in is great!

Being snowed in is a good thing and a bad thing. Good thing is, I am all warm and snuggly. Bad thing is, I had to shovel 1' of snow earlier and now it looks like I hadn't touched it at all. Another good thing is STAMPING!!! YEAH!!! LOVE to stamp and now I'm getting into "Digi Stamps".

I found on the website under community, a gal that is hosting a "Dustin Pike" swap. . I ABSOLUTELY LOVE his artwork. If you are into cutsie and love fun things, this is the site to visit. So here is my card for the swap;

10-25-09 Cards!!! Thank you Cards!

One of our members (Mary Ham) is not feeling well... so I thought I would break out my nestabilities (which I'm completely hooked on now), and make this cute card.

I made this with my nestabilities and then ran them through my cuttlebug. What do ya think?

And I just love this SU! set, bird on a branch. The branch I made using my Cricut. It's almost identical to the branch in the set.

Weekend to STAMP!!!! 10-24--09

Having sooo much fun and feelin' really guilty. Rich is tearing out the kitchen and has instructed me to stay out of his way. I was going to go to the ocean, but it was suppose to rain all weekend so I decided to stay home and lock myself in my stamp room.

Got alot done today... cleaned up the room, got a few Stampin' Up! sets together that I have just received (Autumn Harvest and Pocket Silhouettes), and made these cards.

This one is for the IWIA Stampers * Baltimore, MD * Christmas card shoebox swap, on Monday, October 26th. Saw this on SCS... so I can't take the credit. All I did was add the snowflake in the corner with the glitter. My contribution to stamping. HAHAHHA!!!

Then I made this one. Thinking of April's fall leaf card we had done like a wreath, I used that as my muse for this one.

And then there's this little fella. My Friend Jennifer Kupiec has a wonderful blog and there is a Scrap, Stamp & Doodle challenge. Go to her website to see the challenge. This is the card I made. The image is a Dustin Pike digital art image. I LOVE his images!!!
