Frankenstein, Roses and a lil' bling...

Quite the combo, right???

It seems like months since I've held a club meeting, this past Sunday was looong overdue! Anyway, I just wanted to share with you the 3 cards we made. We also did a 12x12 LO for the 4th of July...but I will post that one in a few days. Okey dokey---

Now this is not an excuse, but I want to explain why what you are about to see are not all Mandy originals. Last week I was not feeling good, I spent Wed. at the hospital go through tests and ultrasounds (**NO** I am not preggo!!!!) I then spent Thursday & Friday on my only day to plan & execute was Saturday. Things are going ok now, and it's just one day at a time for the moment until we know more.

Ok let's get on with the cards!

Card numero uno....Frankenstein and Franniestein.....

I actually saw this posted on SCS by Dawn Griffith and she actually did a step by step video on how to make this card on her blog. Here is a link to the video :
I only made a few minor changes to Frank and Frannie by inking all the edges for depth and not using the arrows for bolts. And of course adding the bow to turn Frank into Frannie.

This a simple card. I just wanted to do a card that showcased the new Stampin' Up In Colors for 08-09....and the new scallop edge punch.

Colors used: Baja Breeze, Pacific Point and Kiwi kiss (LOVE this color!!!)
Stamps - SU! Wow flowers

One more card to showcase the new In Colors and the new designer paper Bella Rose.

Colors used: Riding hood red, Pink Pirouette and kiwi kiss.
ribbon was bought from Hobby Lobby and matches kiwi kiss perfectly! Yay!
Stamps - SU! Heard from the heart.

Remember when...

You use to come to this blog to see new projects posted several times a week?

Well, those days are coming back. The kids are going back to school in a week, and with my recent health issues I will be spending a lot more time at home resting, relaxing and crafting. Doctors orders :) (ok maybe not the crafting part)

First post of new projects will be tomorrow...yay! Hope to see you here :)
