Rainy Day A La Modes

Well it is a rainy Tuesday here. It has been raining since Sunday. As I logged on here today I realized that it has been 27 days since I last posted here. Back to school has really kicked my butt this year. I am busier now than during the summer when both boys were home. So much for enjoying the peace and quiet in my stamp room. I have managed to make several cards over the last few weeks, but have neglected to post them here before I deleted them from my camera and hard drive. Oh well.

Two cards did manage to survive my card purge on the computer. This one is Candy Cane Kisses a la mode from MFT. I have been inspired to make Christmas cards lately and this is one of them. I used some Basic Grey paper from my stash, as well as one of the Nestabilities label sets. The candy cane is covered in Glossy Effects. For this card, I followed the sketch on Card Positioning Systems blog.

Next up is another a la mode stamp called Miss You a Latte. For this card, I used Mercy's Tuesday Sketch Challenge #93. I pulled out some old CTMH papers that I had scraps of and then accented the card with flowers and a MS leaf punch.

That's it for now. If you want to see the other cards from the last few weeks, you can see them HERE (provided SCS gets that gallery fixed).

Wednesday Stamp Club 9/1/10

Well it's Wednesday again and you know what that means...Wednesday Stamp Club from MFT! This week's challenge was a sketch challenge! I just love sketches! The sketch is below so give it a try and post your card in the MFT Forum on Splitcoast Stampers website.

Today I got the chance to play with a new stamp for MFT being released tonight called "Well Read Who's That Girl." This stamp was released a few weeks ago for one day only as part of the MFT VIP Package along with the Notebook Die-namics die that I used for the edge of the notebook paper. Both the Well Read stamp set and the Notebook edge Die-namics die will be released tonight at 10pm. All of the design paper is from Basic Grey.

Well that's it for today! See you tonight in the MFT Forum at 8pm for all the fun surrounding the September release from MFT!
