I received my TAC order and I just love this "babysteps" stamp set. I think it's so cute. I just had to try it out as soon as I got home. I couldn't find my aqua brush. So, I decided to try and use my SU stampin pastels. I've had the pastels for a long time, but rarely used it. I got the blender pen and rubbed it on the chalk and colored away. I used the "Staz ON" black to stamp the image. I really had fun coloring the image. I stamped the "Congratulations" and obviously, it's off, but overall, I still like the way it came out. This one is for a girlfriend of mine who gave birth a while ago to a healthy baby boy.
For this card, I tried coloring in the image using the swab (stick) that comes with the stampin pastel set. Then, I used the blender pen, and rubbed it on the chalk and outlined the image. I like the effect it gave. In this picture, it looks really light, but I'm really happy with the way it came out. This one is for my cousin Glenn and his wife Yvette. Yvette recently gave birth to their son. He'll be one lucky fellow, cuz he has 2 older sisters that will surely take care of him.
This was TAC's September special stamp. I don't have any Bella stamps, so although a little smaller, I think "Lilly Ann" is "purty" too...Don't you? I'm obviously not a good photographer, so my color looks "orangy" when in fact it turned out "quite" bright. Lots of pink shades. I sponged "chocolate chip". Then, I decided to add the brown ribbon. I feel like there's still something missing but I still enjoyed coloring in and making this card. This is for a belated birthday.

With all of the cards, I've used SU designer paper, CS & the ticket punch. This was fun for me. I know I'll be using these stamp sets a lot more.


I've been tagged by by Teri. Here's how it works :

The NAME GAME. The name of the game is to list one fact that is somehow relevant to your life, for each letter of your middle name. If you don't have a middle name, use the name you would have liked to have had. When you are tagged you need to write your own blog post containing your middle name and game facts. At the end of your blog post, you need to choose one person for each letter of your middle name to tag. Don't forget to leave them a comment telling them they're tagged and to read your blog.

The truth is I have a difficult time writing about myself. So, I asked several people to put an adjective next to each letter that explains me. You know...this actually turned out to be a lot of fun!!! Believe me, I treated them really nice, so they would be nice to me (HAHAHA)!!! See the results:

H- Hilarious, happy, hopeful, heartful, (too) honest
I - Insane (i guess I wasn't really nice to this person), Intuitive, inspirational
S - Sassy (huh...don't know what she's talking about), silly, sociable, selfless, sensitive
A - Abnormal (OK...she definitely made a mistake..hehe), Analytical, Approachable, Ambitious
E - Easy...target (yeah, I'm always getting picked on), enjoys life, entertaining, easy (she meant..easy going, easy to get along with..)

Goodie..goodie..now it's my turn to tag...(since I'm not sure on first names, I'll tag by blog names:

H- Hawaiian Angels
I - Ink Something
S - Stampin Inspirations
A - Angelosity
E - Everyday Celebrations

Check out their blogs...It's really awesome. I must say, this was fun!! Thanks Teri and thanks to all of you that helped me out on this one :)
Hope it was as much fun for you as it was for me!!!

I guess I should've said wait until next week instead of tomorrow. My tomorrow sure did last a really long time. Here's my cousin Joy, with all of the goodies. It sure looks like the pants will fit her fine. In addition, I know she'll create some wonderful pages for her ADORABLE daughter Ashlyn.

I had another picture, but seem to be having a problem posting. As soon as I can clear my connection, I'll post another picture.
