My last Chic Boutique card, for now.

I saved the best for last. This one is my favorite of all of the ones I made. I'm not sure if it's the flower or all of the bling. Maybe both!

Well, I probably won't post again until after I get back in town so, stay sweet. XO, Mimi

Hope you gave a wonderful day! XO, Mimi

I'm leavin' on a jet plane...

By the time you read this, I should be well on my way to Dallas, Texas to see my sister, brother, their spouses and some sweet babies! I am so excited to see them. It has been a couple years since we last saw each other.
I am going all by myself. No husband, no children, just me. I know I am going to miss the heck out of my wonderful husband and kids but this is time for me to be able to be with my brother and sister and just be ME. Not Mom or wife.
So, the next few posts are scheduled for while I am gone so, don't worry if there is not much "talking" going on. Just cute cards!

I LOVE this card. All of the cups are paper pieced with Basic Grey paper and the sentiment is on top of one of my new label nestabilities. Ther are some pearls on the label too. This card is SO me! LOL!

Have a great day! XO, Mimi

Another pretty card from Chic Boutique.
I love paper piecing with this set. It really looks pretty with the dress form.

Can't tell too much from the picture but I used my glitter markers on the fringe and the stand.

Have a sweet day. Off to Texas in the morning! Woo Hoo! XO, Mimi

Coffee with a Friend

Not a single stamp used on this card. Can you believe it? Well, I am sure I will stamp a sentiment on the inside.

This is paper that I have had for several years and had always liked but never cut into it. I love the soft tones and the sketchy look to the pictures. This would make a great "Hi, how ya' doin'?" card.

Have a nice day! XO, Mimi

Chic Boutique

Hi friends, sorry I have been missing for a few days. I have been busy getting ready for a card class that I have tomorrow and getting everything ready for my trip to Texas.

This cute card is one that I made last week in an attempt to make a bunch of cards with this set that I love and had to have but had not inked until now. I'm sure nobody knows what that's like. LOL! Plus, I wanted to use the fabulous paper from the new catalog. I had ordered 3 packs because I just knew I would use it but had yet to cut into it.

Anyway, I did make several cards with the set and the paper and new ribbons and in colors. I will be showing them to you over the next few days.

Can you see the tiny little rhinestones on the fringe? They are so small and beautiful. I just got them and knew they would work perfectly for this card.

Oh well, thanks for stopping by. Have a wonderful day! XO, Mimi

Here is another Halloween treat for y'all.
More of the dimensional stickers too. They make it soooo easy and fast!

On a Halloween Kick!

I have been busy making Halloween cards lately.
I pulled out my Halloween Inspiration Station and was so inspired, I had to create something spooky.
I got the idea for an Inspiration Station from Michelle Wooderson quite a while ago.
Now I have one for Halloween, Christmas and Valentines Day.
They are very helpful when you need to get those creative juices flowing in a particular direction.

Anyway, here is one of my latest creations. I used some dimensional stickers I found. They really are so cute.

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

Hey, What's Cooking?

I got new rubber and paper yesterday and had to play.
Even though I was supposed to be cleaning and doing laundry.
Ha! How can a person clean and do laundry with the smell of
fresh rubbah coming from the priority mail box on the counter?
Obviously, I cannot! LOL!

I made this cutie with some new October Afternoon
Early Bird paper and the stamps are from Hero Arts.
The ribbon is from Papertrey and the charm is from
Karen Foster. The coloring matches the paper much
better IRL.
Oh well, I like it!

BTW, there is a free jewelery demo at Michaels on Saturday
from 1 to 3. Please come and keep me company, if you live locally.
If you don't live locally, go to your nearest Michaels and keep
their demo gal company.

Thanks for stopping by. Have a great weekend. XO, Mimi

Another Banner Day!

Another Banner Day! This one I made with Basic Grey paper and used more pink than I used on Maggie's I love it and I am hooked on chipboard right now. I put this up on ebay to see if anyone would buy it. Of course I would put whatever name on it that they want. If it doesn't sell, I am going to give it to my new baby niece Olivia who I am going to meet on the 19th when I go to Texas. I am sure she will love it.

A Cuppa Joe!

Something just moved me to make this yesterday. I don't know why. I came across these 4x4 canvases that I had in a box and these awesome little spoons and it all just came to me. It took longer for the glue gun to heat up than it did to paint the picture. It is more of a mustard color than it appears in the photo. Don't know what I'll do with it. Maybe hang it in my kitchen with all of the other coffee paraphernalia.
Hope you have a great Wednesday! Thanks for stoppin' by! XO, Mimi
