AMYRS 53 and ATSDT31- Oldies and some new Rubbah!!

Hi all! I received some new rubbah this weekend from All That Scraps/CC Designs. Here's my problem. I am going on a budget of $75 a month for stamping. This is all companies. Well, I am part of a CTMH Hostess Club at $25 a month and a SU club for $25 a month.. this leaves $25 and CC Designs keeps releasing amazing stamp sets.. I need them all which means that $25 is NOT enough... oh the dilemma.

Anyway, I decided to use an oldie but goodie on Amy R's Sketch Challenge for this week.
Cat's Meow

Supplies: Stamps- CC Designs; Card Stock- SU Whisper White, Bazzill Watermelon; DP- My Mind's Eye Irresistible (from CC Designs; Ink- Palette Noir; Coloring Medium- Kohrinor Pencils and OMS, Copic Ciao Markers; Other- CB EP, American Crafts Plastic Flowers, Target Ric Rak, Stickles in silver, nestabilities label one, corner rounder.

This was an easy card and I think it turned out cute. I have had the hardest time making Valentine's Day cards. It's been insane. I'm pretty happy with this one. Love the paper- I got another sheet with flying hearts that will be perfect for the new Gingersnaps Set Hey Cupid!

Next, ATS DT31- A color challenge to use Lovely Lilac, Pink Passion, and Kraft


Supplies: Stamps- CC Designs Gingersnaps Hey Cupid!; CS- Bazzil Kraft and Lavendar; SU Whisper White, Watercolor paper; DP- K and Company; Coloring Medium- Faux Watercoloring with SU Markers, Copics used on wings, skin and hair; Other- MS Border Punch, 1 1/4 Circle Punch, nestabilities label one

I absolutely LOVE this set- GingerSnaps are almost replacing my love of Sugarplums.. ALMOST :) Psst.. Christine.. More Sugarplums please!! Anyway, I will be doing many more with this set. It's gorgeous. Stay tuned for another post with more new rubbah!

Just email me if you ever want to commiserate on the budget. Mine is only $65 a month and I HAVE to stick to it to stay out of credit cards.

Oh's not like I'm sitting here without a huge stash anyway. LOL

Enjoy your long weekend!
