Punch Swap Card!


I know.... Already blogging! Yay! This is a card I am making for a punch swap I'm involved in. :)

It started off a ham sub, but it has turned into a BLT with cheese and potato chips.
Thank you, thank you, thank you! to Sue, Lu and Sonia who gave me their opinions on just what the card needed! I totally agree -- the texturing and ribbon totally helped! THANKS fellow stampers!!! :)

Here's the card. Hope you like it.

Here's what I used:

Card Stock: daffodil delight, crumb cake, real red, cajun craze, old olive, and so saffron

Punches: scallop circle, 1 1/4" square, 1 3/8" circle, 3/4" circle, top note die, square lattice embossing folder, vintage wallpaper embossing folder, crop a dile

Accesories: whisper white grosgrain ribbon, log cabin smooch spray (that got everywhere, but that's another story!)

There is a stamp set in the catalogue with a stamp called "bon appetit" and if I had it, I totally would have stamped that in whisper white craft ink. oh well.

If you wish to order these supplies, or anything else, please email me .

Have a fabulous day!

Love LEA

Goodbye CCC, Hello WRHA!

The challenges of CCC are over. I am missing all my friends HORRIBLY!!!! Hi, you guys!!!!

I've had the last two weeks off and most people would have looked at that with happiness and enjoyment.... BUT, if you know me well, you understand this was a dilemma! I know you're wondering, What the heck did you do with yourself, Lea? Because you sure haven't been blogging. I know, I know.... It's not that I didn't want to. Football is done, ASD is done, CCC is done... I don't have a lot of excuses. Somehow, blogging took the trunk, not just the back seat! :)

As you can see, I got my hair done, I took Bailey to the dog park. Bailey was jealous that my dad took a picture of me, so I had to take a picture of him! He's such a good dog! :)

I did do soooooooooooome stamping. And I did manage a trip down the States for a couple of days.... BTW, why do the border crossing people care WHAT I do for a living? Seriously! I'm coming back into Canada -- you'd think.... WHATEVER! We'll leave it at that :).

Did lots of shopping over the last two weeks! Wow am I good at spending money! :D Back to my shopping diet! Suzanne is going to have her work cut out for her :) But I'm gonna look great! :)

Anyways, I did do some stamping because I'm signing up to be in a craft sale next weekend. Yay! :) I already got some stuff done. Do you wanna see? Of course you do. All right, here ya go!

These are Post-It note holders! They come with a little gel pen and will make a great stocking stuffer or teacher's gift. Got the idea from Dawn Griffith, cool huh?
The next one is a tea light holder than Joan showed us at her downline meeting. It's made with Aluminum flashing... Soooooo cute! Thanks Joan! :)
The next one is another Dawn Project! Yay Dawn! They're not completely finished. They need labels! It's snowman and reindeer poop. The little saying on the label will say:
You haven't been very nice this year
So listen here's the scoop
Instead of getting coal this year
You're getting Snowman Poop!
LOL! I absolutely love it! I gave it to my coworkers a couple of years ago and they LOVED it!Saw this one on KVD's website! She's sooooooo cool! And it hold the hand gel from Bath and Bodyworks, which we FINALLY got in Winnipeg this spring. The good news is that it's over at St. Vital so I have to drive a fair distance to frequent it.... That' s a good thing. See comment above re: shopping diet!The last idea came from my upline, Cher! Poor Cher! I drive her crazy sometimes! :) I'm sorry Cher! :( I don't mean to be difficult! These a tile wipe off boards! Such a fab idea, Cher!

That's it for now! Pretty good if I do say so myself!
Talk to ya soon! I have to go post some stamp sets for sale on Kijiji!
Love Lea! :)
