Hi stamping friends, OMG what a night! I have to tell you what happened tonight after I got home form work. I told you my Mom and 2 of my sisters are coming up next week right, so my youngest sister called me on skype to talk about the trip up and while I was talking to her a stamping friend/customer came over to look at my old style punches I have to sell so I told Karen I would talk to here next week. Then my friend left and I was heating up my chili to eat and then I here someone calling me on Skype again and it was my other sister. Well pretty soon I smell something burning and it wasn't food smelling. I told her just a minute and went out to my kitchen to find my fabric lunch bag on fire and the handle of my leather purse smoking. I have a glass top stove and turned on the wrong burner.YIKES!!!!! OMG I am lucky I didn't burn my house down but I guess I wouldn't have to worry about selling it if I did. No lie, man did it stink in here. I hope I didn't ruin my glass top but my lunch bag is toast and the handle on my purse isn't in the best shape. CRAP the story of my life I tell ya I could write a dang book. My oldest sister Jan was laughing at me. Okay on a serious note I need you to say a prayer for a friend of mine that is having problems and the doctors aren't sure what is wrong so without naming names please say a prayer for my friend. Thanks.
Now I made this fruit card for a card challenge for CASology and it was to use fruit. Well the obvius one was the Perfectly Preserved set from the upcoming Holiday catalog but you will have to check out the blog they want really simple naked cards so I made this card out of the Reason To Smile Set that will be going away in 5 days so if you want it time is running out. Anyway I stamped the flower in Tangerine Tango Ink with Tangerine Tango Card Stock and then cut it in half and used my White Gel Pen to make the rind and then with my marker colored in some of the seeds. I used the Window Frames Collection Framelits and textured both that die cut and the the layering Tangerine Tango piece of Card Stock with the Fancy Fan EF. I turned the Whisper White rough side and the card layer to the smooth side. I made a banner and used the Loving Thoughts stamp set for the banner and then made a little ribbon banner on the side with the 1/2 Scallop Dots Ribbon and a Round Designer Ribbon Slide.I hope it is easy enough but I thought it turned out cute. Don't you? Glad I didn't have this card on the stove. LOL! I hope you will check out the other artists at the blog by following this link www.casology.blogspot.com
