Go Hokies!!! Go Wahoos!!!! The Big Game is Here!!!

OK all of you VT & UVA fans..the game is this weekend!!! Who is going to win?  My family all like UVA but my husband is VT, me I like Marshall.  So for all of you I made cards (no stamping involved in these at all).  There is A VT, UVA, and one with both teams just in case one family member likes one and one likes the other.  I used SU Night of Navy, Pumpkin Pie, and Bravo Burgundy cardstock.  Along with SU Linen thread, SU Stamp;in Dimensionals, Oval and 3/4" punches.  The team paper and stickers are a scrapbooking kit I ordered online from a collegiate craft supplier.  So no matter who you are pulling for, good luck to both.  Happy Stamping, Lynette

Happy Christmas Card

Can you believe that it is Christmas already?  This year has flown by, my grandmother always said, "Time flies the older that you get", and you know she was right.   This card was in our SU demonstrator monthly magazine (it always has good ideas  if your creative juices aren't flowing).  It is done on SU cardstock Old Olive, Very Vanilla, and Soft Suede, Designer Paper Tall Tales and Merry Moments.Wandering Words Stamp Set only in the Holiday Mini Catalog (#116507), SU Classic Ink Sahara Sand, 5/15" Neutrals Jumbo Brads, Elementary Ribbon Originals, Paper Piercing Tool, and Mat Pack.  Remember that the items that are in the Holiday Mini Catalog are only available thru January 4th and only in the Mini Catalog.  Happy Stamping, Lynette

Veterans Day

November 11th is Veterans Day so this card is to thank all of our soliders, past and present, who have defended this great and grateful country.  We had a very moving service in church yesterday for our veteran members, it was a Kleenex moment.  To make this I used SU Night of Navy and Whisper White paper, Courage Stamp Set and Service/Sacrifice Stamp Set, SU Classic Inks Basic Black and Real Red, Stampin' Pastels Real Red, Old Olive, So Saffron, Brilliant Blue, and Tempting Turquoise.  For the flag on the ribbon (which I hate to say this I bought at a local store because I was using it in another project and I wanted the red, white, and blue effect) I cut out and glued to back a piece of paper to slide over the ribbon then put a Stampin' Dimensional on it to secure in place.  As one of our veterans said yesterday, "Freedom is not free".  God Bless America and our soldiers.  Happy Stamping, Lynette                 

Feminine Elegance

There is a lady, and when I say lady I mean it in every  sense of the word, in my church that I dearly love, she was my Sunday School teacher, and her birthday is the 12th.  I thought of this simple and girly card for her.  I used SU Pretty in Pink and Designer Paper Tea Party, Eyelet Punch (which I was very disappointed as it did not show as well as I was wanting), along edge of the Designer Paper, and 1/2" Grosgrain Ribbon Striped Pretty in Pink.  This can be used for Birthday or Mother's Day.  Happy Stamping, Lynette
