Green is the New Black!

So, I'm a bit of a tree hugger. What's wrong with that!? And, did you notice, I'm still crazy about the squares? They are so easy to work with.

I love this AC paper and the ribbon was just generic. I like the simple look of it.

Well, have a Happy Monday! XO, Mimi

BasicGrey at Michaels!! Woo hoo!

So, I'm shoppin' one day, at my favorite craft store and I see this great pad of paper. So, yeah, I buy it. I didn't even realize it was BasicGrey. Duh! No wonder it's so pretty.

Here's another eco button for ya. Yes, green is Sexy. Don't ya think?

All the paper is BasicGrey and the flower is Prima and the velvet ribbon is just something I had in a jar. Love it? Me too!

See ya later. XO, Mimi

It's a Gift. No, it's a Card. No, it's both!

I found these great little "ECO Pins" in the dollar spot at Target and just had to have them. I knew they would be great for on cards. Then I had a little creative slump and couldn't figure out how I wanted to do it.

Well, after blurfing some of my favorite blogs, I saw these at Kristina's blog. I was inspired all over again. I made a few and I will past them a little each day.

This pin is paired up with some AC paper and black velvet ribbon. The fancy square is a Cuttlebug die. I think I got the "believe" stamp form Michaels.

Well, thanks for stoppin' by! Have a great day! XO, Mimi

Reach for the Stars!

This is another card I made using some clearance dimensional stickers from Michaels. I think I bought them all. This little guy is so cute with the Cogsmo paper and a rub-on.

Well, that's all I got for ya, today!

Have a great day! XO, Mimi

Party Like a Rockstar!

Love this guitar from Inkadinkado! I embossed it with detail gold ep and it just shines. Yup, another square card. What does this mean? Am I feeling boxed in, is there some hidden meaning? Maybe I just like the square look. Whatever!

Have a happy humpday! XO, Mimi

Gotta Love the Dollar Stamps!

I love the dollar bins at Michaels. Who am I kiddin'? I love the dollar bins everywhere!! LOL! But at Michaels, for me, they are the .75 bins with my discount. So, even better.

I paired up this dollar bin spider webb image with some of last year's SU! Halloween paper, some Thicker wannabees from Dollar Tree and some more of the Martha Stewart ribbon. I think it actually glows in the dark. Hmmm.

I love how simple it is!

Thanks for peekin' at my stuff! Have a wonderful day! XO, Mimi

So Sad but So True!

Love this sassy saying. It's another one from Michaels. I paired it up with some Au Chocolate from SU! and some of this delicious ribbon that they retired. Boo hoo. Oh yeah, the scallop square is a nestabilities

Thanks for stopping by. Hope you have a great Monday! XO, Mimi

Inkadinkado, I See You!

I picked up this fabulous Halloween set at Michaels during Friends and Family discount days. I love the witch and the cool trail she leaves. I paired her with some paper from last year's Halloween Stack and some Martha ribbon.
I have been crankin' out the square cards lately. I guess I needed a change.

Oh well, thanks for stopping by. Have a great weekend! XO, Mimi

Oh yeah, P.S., I just found out my brother's wife is pregnant. This will be their first. They just married a year ago, July. Yeah! Way to go Bryon and Vanessa!

Sorry for that brief pause!

Sorry for my absence. I have been busy with work and classes and personal life stuff. Ya know!? I did get some stamping done last night that I want to show you.

The first is for Maggie's teacher. I am using the Kim Hughes stamps combined with Junkitz paper for a perfect thank you to her. The sketch I stole from my dear friend Kirsten, here.

The second one is more of the sketch from a week or so ago. I used my new Cat's Pajamas stamps with some old SU paper. Love it!

Well, I'm keepin' it short! Have a great day. XO, Mimi

My current FAVORITE Sketch!

I LOVE this sketch!

I found this card while blurfing around and knew I had to try it. So, here are my 2 takes on it. The first one uses one of my favorite lines of Scenic Route paperalong with some ribbon from Stampin' Up! and a rhinestone star from the clearance bin at Michaels.

The second one uses the new Halloween paper from Stampin' Up! and a cute Frankinstein and bats from Michaels. The get ghoulish stamp is a Martha Stewart stamp from last year.

Have an awesome day! XO, Mimi
