Always here for you {SS}

Hello, Sunday!
Today I'm on the Sweet Stamps Challenge blog
with my sweet card featuring my 
Favorite Embellishment(s)
I couldn't pick just one...please forgive me!
I love embellishments and honestly...cannot pick just one.
I do.... however.... almost every single time...add pearls or some sort of "bling"
I chose black pearls and also used Piccolo 3D enamel gel for the Lemon Butter pearls
on this card.
I also love to distress edges with inks and now I find myself favoriting
stencils like the one I used on this project.
I wanted to give you a quick peek at how many tries I made before I 
settled on this one image.  
Practice makes....perfect almost perfect, right?!
Either way...Remy is a little doll and the sentiment is precious. 

Enough of my favorites...now show us yours!
You still have until Monday evening to share your projects.

Happy Sunday!

Holiday Memories Album

Is it way too soon for Christmas projects?
I hope not...because I started this one LAST YEAR!
I finally finished this sweet book that has been on my desk, literally...
since last fall!
It's a paper sack mini album.
It measures approximately 4.5" x 3.5"
It's loaded with gorgeous papers.
Aged edges and vintage style embellishments and stickers

I've included sweet sentiments and wonderful
stamps.

 Pretty ribbons
And extra tags for your photos and journal keeping.
So excited that I finished this little beauty!
Thanks for letting me share with you...

Happy Christmas Chalkboard Technique {SS}

You just gotta love the 15th of the month..

This month we are all giving the Chalkboard Technique a try.
I created a simple step card and dressed it up

The note area is replaceable.  
You could even write your own note in chalk.

Coffee and Friends {3GJ}

The Challenge at 3GirlJAM is
And it's my turn on the Design Team Blog, yay me!
 Coffee is a big thing at our house.
And one of my dearest friends is a coffee nut too.
So I thought this card would be perfect for her upcoming birthday.
We met in Okinawa when our husbands were active duty. 
We spent lots of time together and shared LOTS of coffee together.
We live in different states now and I miss her a bunch.

I think this card will make her smile though...
I used Goblin Green for the ribbon from 3GirlJAM
and the stamps are from Unity Stamp Company and StampinUp.
I'll list the supplies below for you.
