Glittered Birthday

glittered birthday
dets: all A|S ~ CS: sugar and watermelon; Stamps: very merry un-birthday, celebrate in style, contemporary greetings;
Inks: bubblegum and memento black; Copics: B04, RV25, BG10, Y17, RV21.
So, I'm super excited to be among a group of fantastic consultants who are hosting the A Muse Studio Challenge Blog!  Each week, a consultant will post a challenge and will have a prize for that winner!  What a great way to work a challenge and get great prizes!

This week was Carla's turn and she challenged the use of  "glitter".  I am not a fan of glitter because it gets pretty messy and it ends up in my eyes.  Yep, I'm kind of a dork and somehow it ends up there.  Since I wear contacts, it hurts like heck.  ;p <<--that's me winking because I have glitter in my eyes.  So thanks, Carla!!!  Ha,ha,ha!  I'm just kidding. <3 luv ya, girl!
Although, I'm not a fan, doesn't mean that glitter is bad!  A Muse Studio has great glitter in wonderful colors!  I just need to learn how not to get it in my  Carla, any useful tips will be great! ;p
The great thing about our glitter is the "warning".  On the side of the bottle it says: "we know our glitter looks yummy, but please don't eat it."  OMG, the staff at A|S has such a wonderful sense of humor!  I'm so blessed to be a part of an outstanding company!!! 

This project was last minute and I had a brain fart.  I took a break to Starbucks with the BFF to clear my mind.  She was the one who came up with the idea to make a birthday card ... so here it is. 
I sent her a picture message when I was done and her daughter said I completed it really fast. 
That's because with A Muse Studio, it's easy, peasy!!!

Enjoy and Happy Stamping!

Two cards in one night!  I'm on a roll! lol...This second card is going to my previous sweet and dear manager: Mildred.  On FB she has posted two pictures of the gang drinking and I thought this was very appropriate.  I miss her and she was the best manager to work with. 
Mildred, I'm waiting for you to come out to visit me here! ;p
I got a chance to get her a few Hawaiian goodies: chocolate covered macadamian nuts, honey roasted mac nuts, Hawaiian Ice Tea (to be mixed with water); a few white rabbit (filipino candy); this card and a Hawaii post card.  Her birthday was this past July 27th. So I'm gonna send her some Love from Hawaii.  I hope she likes it! 

Both stamp sets are on sale till August 15th! 
Hurry up and save!

SC343 ~ Happy Birthday To You

dets: all a|s unless stated ~ CS: sugar, sage, and sage gingham; Stamps: sea shells, life's a breeze, and birthday greetings;
Inks: fern, grass, and amuse dye black; Copics: YG67 and YG13
So I've been hanging out at SplitCoast Stampers and I'm really liking their challenges.  I've told myself that I really want to excel in my trade (cardmaking).  Participating in these challenges are a way to get my creative juices flowing and allows me to stretch myself.  
At the lounge, we had a chance to call Lara to pratice our booking calls.  It was such a great idea and with a bonus: we get a stamp set ~ FOR FREE!!!
All we had to do is call.  It was on like Donkey Kong!  I did have to wait almost 45 minutes but it was well worth it.  Lara said I did a really good job *pats myself on the back* and she gave me lots of great tips! It was super fun!  I did say a lot of umms and wells.  I gotta practice not doing that.  It wasn't really well rehearsed, just kinda went with the flow. 
I already had a stamp set in mind (clever girls-pg 55) but I had to ask if we could choose from the new catty.  OMG!!!  Now I can't decide!!!  lol...
I think I'm going to stick with my original choice. 
 I'm a clever girl by calling and doing a good job. 

All stamp sets can be purchased at my webstore:

August Blog Hop

Summer Breeze
dets: all a|s unless stated: CS: sugar, sage, gingham: bubblegum, buttercup and sky;
Stamps: life's a breeze and a muse art stamps-heart line;
Inks: french roast, papaya, cranberry, and memento black; Other: yellow floss and green toothpick

Summer Love

"If you are participating in the blog hop, you should have come from Samantha's blog, and if not, then you should start from the beginning with Samantha's blog until you come to my blog.
 I'm second on the list.

This month we were asked to create a project on what summer means to me.  Summer reminds me of love and the beach.  Living in Hawaii, we get to go to the beach all year round but so much so in the summer with school out of session.  I don't have kids but I have a group of teens at my church who always talks about going to the beach during the summer. 

The love of my life does not live on the islands, (by choice), so I wanted to make a card dedicated to him.  I wish he was here and so I made a special "mung and pung" chair set. 
It's my version of "his & hers". 
I love the gingham paper ~ I finally opened it up (from the starter kit) and had a chance to play with it. The colors and design are so pretty! 

I went to my cousin's BKP 1st anniversary party and they performed their own version of 
"Summer breeze".  BKP stands for Broke Kids Project.  It's a collaboration of teens (from our church) making music.  The music is not strictly christian music but a mix of their musical talents. I'm so proud of them, I wish I had a video from last night to show off.  

I'll just settle for Jason Mraz's mix ~ Enjoy the video before you're off to your next stop! 

Now on to your next stop Tamra Grandi's blog.
