Basic Grey

Oh I'm soo loving the new Basic Grey Color!!! The ribbon is so pretty!!! I have yet to use it though! I will though! Don't worry.

The flower was colored with a Blender Pen and Purely Pomegranate Re-Inker. I then embossed with clear ep! After that I added a Jumbo Eyelet to the center!

Wasabi Christmas

Here is a challenge card I did with the Challenge Chasers this morning. We were challenged to use Wild Wasabi. I love it! I combined it with Purely Pomegranate and Bashful Blue (my favorite Christmas Color Combo right now).

I used my Blender Pins and Ink to color in the Snowmans.

Thanks for looking!

Clear Paint Can

I've had these clear paint cans for some time now. I found them at Staples for like $3. I first filled it up full of Halloween Salt Water Candy. YUMMY. I love salt water candy.
I then added all the ribbon to the handle. Most of the ribbon is SU! but some is from Mike's. I decorated the lid, but forgot to take a picture this morning before work. (I still dont have a home computer :( so sad )

I then put the panel around the paint can and added some stamps.

Gosh, I feel like I have been sooo bad at blogging. I'm sorry. I haven't had a home computer all week now. My laptop went dead a few months ago. I had it in the shop and they told me it couldn't be saved! Its only a year and half old. I'm sooo sad. My parents bought it for me for Christmas and didnt buy the warranty. Boo :( Anyways, I was borrowing an extra computer from the office, but I had to bring it back last week.

So the past two weekends I went to Mammoth!!! I had a blast!!! :) I thought I would share some pictures since I dont have any cards to show you. These are my awesome friends Nate and Tara. We all went to high school together!!! It was Oktoberfest!!!! LOVED IT!
