A little gift for my sister

My sister Kim, just moved into her new house. Her husband went yard saling and found her a great bathroom set. Pretty purple shower curtain with hydrangea curtain hooks and a pretty hydrangea print. So of course when I saw it I thought of the "Because I Care" stamp set. So I thought I would make her a couple more prints to go with it.

I know I just used this set yesterday,
and I'm sure I will use it a lot more.
Have a great day, Shelley

Faux Silk

Hi! I tried a couple of new techniques lately and wanted to share one of them with you today. This is called Faux Silk.

I used one of my favorite stamp sets that will be retiring at the end of this month. It is a hostess set called Because I Care. I'm not going to be parting with this one anytime soon. I stamped my image in Cherry Cobbler & Old Olive on Whisper White. Take a piece of tissue paper, wad it up then straighten in back out and glue it on top of your image. Just cut off the excess tissue paper around the edges and you are done. I really like how it turned out.

Bridal Shower Invitations

I am finally done with my niece's bridal shower invitations. The only thing left to do is put them in the mail! Then of course come all the planning for the shower itself...

I really like how they turned out. The Melon Mambo and Certainly Celery paper looks great together. The stamp set is from last Summer's mini (I think) called Wedding Bliss.

Have a great day! Shelley

It's Monday!!

I was only acting excited that it's Monday.
 All that means is back to work.
 This week will probably be another busy one.
 But the good thing is I have a job, right??

On to some fun stuff. I wanted to share the wedding favors we will be making for my nieces wedding, coming up in September. 

These will be filled with Skittles,
 tropical flavors to go with the color scheme.
And here is a close up of the flower
 using the Fun Flower die cut for the Big Shot.

Later this week I will share the bridal shower invitations I made. They are almost finished, the fronts are all done.  I just need to add the information to the inside and address the envelopes. They really need to go out in the mail this week.

Have a great day!! Shelley

Michelle Perkett Studios - Bingo Challenge

Well I'm a little bit behind schedule this week. I meant to do this card this last night but that just didn't happen.
We have a fun challenge for you at

The idea is you choose a line of ingredients for your card
or if you're feeling brave use all 9 for a full house!!

I used Harmony Goddess for my card.
Isn't she pretty! So peaceful.
The sentiment says "Find your own little piece of harmony"
I colored her with Crayola Extreme Colors Pencils.
All the paper is SU. I chose the sketch from Papertake Weekly and then totally forgot to play along with our own challenge. So I had to go back and add some scallops, glitter & pearls.

I hope you all join us for the challenge this week!
We love seeing your gorgeous creations.
Don't forget to use a MPS image for your creation.

Have a great one  - Shelley

Some Terrific News

I am so excited to say that I have been chosen for the Scrap It With a Song DT!
Their challenges are so much fun!
And I had a blast making this page.

 This is Olivia Wilde - who plays 13 on House. When I was reading the lyrics to this week's challenge I wanted to do something different. At first I told my fiance to give me a picture of his ex, and he just laughed at me, like usual. Then I was searching something else and there was Olivia! I knew that is what I had to do. So we looked through a bunch of "Top 50 Sexiest Women" and out of all of them he still choose 13. She is gorgeous! I tease him about his TV girlfriends. On each of our favorite shows we have a "favorite". Mine are Shamar Moore from Criminal Minds and Mark Harmon from NCIS. I've always loved him. I really love how this turned out!

I would like to thank SIWAS for allowing me to be on their DT! I am so excited!
