Time w/my friend!

Yesterday was a wonderful day...My "angel" friend Mary Jane and I finally got together to stamp. We hadn't done this in a few months and I missed it very much! I worked on swaps, design team stuff and another card that I can share. I don't want to post the swaps yet since I don't want to spoil it for the others in case they come to visit my blog. The stuff that I made for Modern Sugar Blvd. will be posted VERY soon for you to see..we have lots of new releases coming on Sat. May 30th so make sure you come back to visit.

So here is the card that I made yesterday. It's a new set that I had purchased a few months ago and I hadn't even put it together...I don't know why I hadn't its beautiful and I can't wait to create more cards with this set. The set is from Stampin Up called bella blossoms.

I was busy again today in my craft room I can't share with you the other stuff I was doing today but will be able to VERY soon. I can share this card...It's one of the newest digital images from Modern Sugar Blvd. called belly mama...isn't she beautiful? She is for sale in the Modern Sugar Blvd. store right now.

I came across a WONDERFUL blog the other day her name is Amy and her work is SOO inspiring I just LOVE everything on her blog that she shares. She also posts sketches every Friday. I used a sketch that she posted a while back that is here for this card that I made today with belly mama.

Flat Crescents Anyone? LOL!

Ok so everyone knows that I can only mess up crescents but then you ask How in the world can someone mess up Crescents from the Pillsbury tube? And no, I didn't burn them LOL! So let me tell you the story...Me and Trish decided to get together and stamp today since we hadn't gotten together in quit a while. I was really happy thinking I'll make chicken salad for lunch, choc chip cookies and jello with peaches...oh and I can't forget the YUMMIE strawberry cream tea that I bought from the tea store in Ruidoso! MMM GOOD! So I opened up the crescent rolls to make in the oven and 16-18 mins later I went to take them out and there were FLAT ummm so I left them a couple more mins thinking they need to rise and maybe it happens the last few mins lol! Well 2 mins pass by and they are still flat eeeek! ok so I don't know what happened...I called Trish and told her the story and if she could bring some rolls she said yes. She gets here and laughs and I told her I don't know what could have happened she then says well did you roll them or twist them..I said no, I didn't know you had to do that hahahaha! She tasted them and said they were good so we put the chicken salad ontop of the crescent and BOY were they YUMMIE! So next time you bake them crescents from the tube bake them flat haha! It's our new favorite!!!

We did make a card that was inspired from Mercedes Weber's blog here. Trish came across her blog one day and told me about it..Trish had the set so we made one just like it! Thank you Mercedes your card is beautiful!
