Another Mother's Day Card!

Here's the card from last night as promised. It was designed by someone from Archiver's however I just happened to bring some A Muse stamps along for good measure and low and behold the sentiment came in quite handy! We cranked out several of these babies. The flowers are by Hero Arts and stamped on acrylic paper using red StazOn ink. The clear overlay transparency is glue dotted down onto beautiful glittered background paper and we pink *blinged* it! Do you think I bought any of the supplies? Oh heavens NO as I have _000's of sheets of 12 x 12 paper at home. I wouldn't dream of buying another piece of paper. Nope, not me. Ruth Ann did major card assemblage, fancy Fiskar scallop edge cutting, *your choice* of sentiment stamping, and I did some cutting and power stamping! I was quite whiny as I wanted the perfect acrylic blocks to help me with my stamping (thanks Carolyn and Carol). I have a major fear of *slip sliding away* with StazOn ink when stamping on clear transparency paper but guess what? I overcame my obstacles last night. YOU go girl Tami!! The funny thing is my right hand is still stained red today. I spoke to my parents earlier and I told MOM another card is on its way to NH. This will be Ellie's third Mother's Day card. I know I'm such a good daughter. My Dad loved his Memory Box penguin card and birthday bucks. Time for a little stamping now and some Sunday night TV. I had a splendiferous (I just stamped my A Muse sentiment so I would spell that BIG word correctly on "Bloggie") visit with an 'ole pal Sherry. I hate to admit this but we went to Michael's after our coffee chat. "Oh Mom, Sherry wanted to go to Michael's to poke around a bit so I went with her just to look and be polite." I blame Ruth Ann for showing me all of her beautiful Amy Butler finds. I spied those fabulous new blue Martha Stewart (MS) punches. I did put back the new MS trio flower punch. I now have my eye on the Artful Blogger issue 2 but I'm waiting for coupons to get both of these items. I hope you all had a beautiful day. I'll be back on Wednesday if all goes well. Thanks for making week one so great in blogworld for a couple of newbies! Tami and "baby Bloggie" :-)

Another day filled with lots of fun making cards and shopping. Now I find it very hard to believe that you did not buy anything. :)

Love the card Tami. You have given me the courage to try and stamp on transpaency. I have some but have been afraid that I would mess up usin the Staz on too.

Hi commenters from anonymous.

Please forgive me for writing this here but I went to Paper Depot and Paper Source both in Minneapolis, MN with my friend Ruth Ann. She *made* me go!

Here's the good news for all you MN stampers. Paper Depot has A Muse. I bought three new stamps today and some fancy 4 bar envies. A few other goodies too including another store bought card for Sami (sis) to give to PA for Father's Day. I hope its *safe* in here for me to update "bloggie" in the comment section. I'm really starting to panic about Ellie finding out about this blog. Worked on my bills this afternoon and had a major reality check. I'm in cognito today. Shhhhh!!
