I Love this birdy!

I was so excited to play with this set and the paper that goes with it. Too cute and fun! The set is called Cheep Talk and the DSP is called Good Morning Sunshine. I think they are going to get lots of use with me. Oh yeah, and the flower is from the Birds and Blooms sizzlet.

Thanks for stoppin' by. More to come soon! XO, Mimi

Make two cards and call me in the morning.

The best cure for the blues is creating. As far as I'm concerned. So, after a good helping of cheese with my whine, about not getting my stamps yesterday, I decided to create anyway.

I played with some of the Chloe's Closet paper from Making Memories along with the matching Journaling pages. It was fun and no stamps were involved at all.

The first one is for my sister as just a" hello there" card. The "U" was originally glittered with blue but it didn't match the bird so I used heat and stick and some green fine glitter to change it. It worked great.

The second one uses some fabulous ribbon that my dear friend Kirsten had given me quite some time ago. It's so shimmery and yummy. The birdy is from a kit that I got from Serendipity kits. I didn't add a sentiment yet. I figure I will add it when I know what I'm using it for.

Well, that's all for now because Mr. Brown DID come today and I have some serious stampin' to do! Thanks for stopping by. XO, Mimi

Hey Dude, where's my stamps?

Yeah, that's right, no stamps for me today. UPS said that my package was on time and in route for delivery today. They LIED!!! It always seems that something happens with the delivery of my package when it contains new catalog paraphernalia. Why is that?

Oh well, since I was bummin' big time, I painted. That's right, painted. Can you say boring??? I painted my daughter's room and her bathroom. I have needed to do it for a while now. At least I can concentrate completely on the new stuff when it arrives.

I hope I have some fun new stuff for you to oogle after this weekend. Thanks for stopping by to hear me whine. XO, Mimi

I LOVE Valentines!

I just wanted to post a quickie with some pictures of The Studio before my Valentines Card Class on Tuesday. The ladies loved the cards and the decorations. I love it because, as you can see, my favorite color is pink!!!

The tables had candies scattered on them along with the packets filled with their project supplies.

We had a very nice day and I can't wait for our next get-together.

Well, that's all for now. My new catalog goodies are coming in tomorrow! WOW! XO, Mimi

Chocolate and Cherries

That's what this card reminds me of. It looks so rich and delicious. I used some of Stampin' Up!s chipboard frames and rub-ons with this one. I haven't added a sentiment yet but it will be on the chocolate layer when I do.

Hope you have a great day. Thanks for checkin' in! XO, Mimi

More Valentine Workshop Yummies!

This yummy card is all paper pieced with some Valentines papers I have had hanging around waiting for the perfect project. I love using this stamp from Ellen Hutson with all kinds of papers. The picture is a little dark but there are 3 rhinestones at the bottom of the card for some bling.

Hope you enjoy your day. Thanks for stopping by. XO, Mimi

Lollipop, Lollipop, O lolli lolli pop!

I only have a couple of lollipop covers to show you today but aren't they cute? I would like to take the credit for the idea but I got it over at Splitcoast by searching for ideas for these pocket notes. I have some ladies wanting to make Valentines cards and I thought they would like these cuties added to their workshop. Yummy!

Well, that's all for today. Thanks for stoppin' by! XO, Mimi

I'm Baaaack!

I am back from the Orlando Stampin' Up! Regional. I had a fabulous time with my buddies! I learned some new stuff and made some cute make and takes and some great shoebox swaps with the ladies in my group. As always though, I am happy to be home.

This is a card that I started while in Orlando. I stamped the image and started coloring but I had forgotten to bring along my flesh color so I had to finish it when I got home. These stamps are by "My Cute Stamps" and they are just that! I hope you can see how I popped up the buns in her hair and her crown and wand. I love the googly eyes on the frog too.

Well, thanks for stoppin' by! XO, Mimi

Happy Baby News!!!

No, silly. Not about me. My sister, in Texas. I just got word from her today that her twins that she is having are a boy and girl. And doing perfectly! How wonderful. I have been dying to know the sexes so I can shop.

So, in honor of the great baby news, here is a baby card using a new set of mine from My Cute Stamps. I am not totally thrilled with the end result but it's done. The paper is Basic Grey Sugared.

Thanks for checkin' in. I am off for a weekend away with the girls. I am going to the Stampin' Up Regional in Orlando. Woo Hoo! I'll catch up when I get back! XO, Mimi

More Coffee Please!

I absolutely LOVE this set by GinaK Stamps. It is called "my cuppa joe" and it certainly is. I totally copied this card by LZappa. I love her work and visit her blog everyday. This is the card that made me have to have this set. I hope my interpretation did her justice.

I used Basic Grey Urban Prairie paper that I am also in love with, right now.

Thanks for stoppin' by. Have a great day! XO, Mimi

New Velvet Ribbon at Michaels! Yum Yum!

I found this sweet velvet ribbon the other day while at word and I just had to have some! LOL! It looks so yummy with this Bittersweet paper by Basic Grey and The Birds and the Bees from Kim Hughes. It's hard to tell from this picture but the hearts are all popped up as well as the birdies.

Oh well, see you soon! XO, Mimi

Hello Honey!

I am sooooo excited about the new Kim Hughes set being revealed today. I am such a Kim Hughes fan. I love her cute and simple images.

For this card, I paired the Birds and the Bees set with the GinaK Little Tees set. I went a little crazy shopping on line last week and got a bunch of yummy goodies!

Hope you have a Terrific Tuesday. Thanks for stopping by. XO, Mimi

Happy New Year!

I know, I know, where the heck have I been? Sorry, Just Holiday stuff and personal stuff but, I'm back and I hope to be posting more often and showing off some stamped stuff.

This little cutie is a card I made for my Sister-in-law. I used my new GinaK t-shirt shamps that I have lusted over for quite some time now. I love the paper I used. it is Basic Grey Bittersweet. I am going through a Basic Grey craze right now so I am sure you will see more of it soon! LOL!

My SIL is due in April and having a girl. I am so happy for her and my brother. They are young and fun and both well educated so, I am sure this will be a smart little cutie. I went shopping with my daughter, over the weekend, and ran into a huge sale at Old Navy where we went crazy buying pink clothes for the new baby. It was so much fun. I am going to pack it all up and ship it out to them. Hope they are happy with all that I got.

Well, thanks for stopping by. XO, Mimi
