Uncharted Territory

Hi we are almost at the end of September all ready where does the time go...
One of my down line was over the other day and she brought this set Uncharted Territory (116952) over with her. As I did not have this set and hadn't thought much about what to do with it I was stumped I didn't want to water color and most things I had seen with this set were so this is what I came up with. I have always like black and white so that is what I used. I embossed the light house used the Photo Corner Punch (119878) and 1 1/4 Grosgrain ribbon (115615) in Basic Black. I kind of like it what do you think??

Builder Wheels

I finally ordered these new wheels and hadn't done anything with them so thought I would give it a try. I think maybe this card is a little busy but I am posting anyway. Used two Builder Wheels Little Cardinals (120865) and Little Christmas (120866) found in the Holiday Mini. I also got a few more toys from the mini so Used Northern Frost (120901) to make the snow flakes this is a Decorative strip die that you use with the Big Shot. and this was the first time I used the Embossing folder Northern Flurry (120902) as well, did a little sponging added some Real Red Ribbon. Not sure what I think of the finished project.

What Happens in Vegas...

Hey I had a fantastic trip, didn't loose the house and even found a new friend..isn't he sweet... Good to be home again, my feet hurt and I am little poorer. Did have a great time though. the food and shows were fantastic. Went to see the musical Menopause what a great show, the Rat Pack was really good as well. and did a few others too. I certainly stayed up long past my usual bedtime good thing it was only four days... Now need to save some money for another adventure...

Elegant Trio Stencil

I finally ordered one of the De core Stencils, this one is called Elegant Trio (118262) it comes in a set of three. This is my first attempt at using it. I just sponged almost too much on a circle cut with the Scallop Circle Die (113468) on confetti white paper. Added this to Melon Mambo paper. I used a Rhinestone Brad from the Circle Fire collection (109110) on a piece of pink ribbon. Nothing to special about this simple card.

Some renovating

About a week ago my husband went for a walk, there was a store uptown that was closing and he went in. Well he came home to get me and the truck and we came home with four big card units. So today we got busy what as mess to get everything together. I had racks in this space in my stamp room so they were removed and this was put up. Then I had to fill it with stamps no problem there. I still have
more stamps but thought I did enough for now. The other two racks were put up where I do my workshops and I put cards on them that I hope to sell . I actually had a very large garbage bag full of things to finally get rid of when I was finished. I think I like the result..
the pictures aren't the greatest but you do get the idea of what we did. Thanks for stopping by.
