This is my entry for Jen's weekly challenge. I loved it because I got to use the stamp sets that I have never used and used some that I have not touch in a while. I have to get this into her before midnight.. kind of like how Cinderella has to hurry home before the carriage turns into a pumpkin!! LOL!!! These owl stamps are from CHF. They really do have sleepy eyes, which is pretty appropriate for me at the moment... =)
Here I used old olive, close to cocoa and always artichoke CS and Inks. I also mounted the eyes on the owl and parts of the card.

Here is a closer view of my scrapbook page. I didn't have any background paper to use for the page, so I decided to hand stamp a background. All stamps and ink are are from SU.
This is the ther half of the the page.
hmmm.... can't remember where I got those tiny dogbones from, but I they were cute, so I had to use them!
A closer look how it was done. You can kind of see the bones and paws i added for embellishments. TFL!!

So, I stamped the words in the lower right corner of the card then ran the CS in the big shot.
Recognize these Girls? These are the worldly girls!! They are found here and are so cute!! http://stampinwhenican.blogspot.com/2008/05/playing-with-clipart.html I really didn't know how I was going to use them but knew that I wanted them facing each other.
Here I used black, and kiwi kiss CS from SU, Bella Rose DSP, colored with SU markers, and black ribbon from SU as well. I think they came out ok. TFL!

Speaking of exciting, here are the new IN COLORS for the '08-'09 Stampin' Up! year, along with a really awesome new punch! I love it all and so will you! There are also new stamp sets coming out and I have used one of them to create these 2 cards.
This time, I did not use my SU scallop punch, instead I used my circle scallop nestabilities. This seemed to have fit perfectly! The DSP is Bella Rose, don't you love it! Everything coordinates so well.

Well, Erika's Birthday is just 10 days after me, so looks like we'll have to celebrate again!
Here I have created a money holder for a swap with a group of girls who work on the University of Hawaii Manoa Campus. Each month we have a new challenge to complete. I love swaps because they allow you to challenge yourself and think outside the box, and you also get new ideas from others. I had misplaced the template to create this money holder, and had to resort to finding one and taking it apart to trace onto my cardstock. It's a good thing that I only had to make 7 total. So, once I finished tracing that, I had to score all the folds and tape them together, and decorate. The supplies used were: Seeing Spots, and Enjoy Every Moment stamp sets, Groovy Guava CS, Chocolate Chip CS, Vanilla CS, groovy guava, chocloate chip, and so saffron ink, vintage brad, dimesionals, white gel pen, 1 3/8" circle punch, and scallop punch. Have a great Monday!!
This is the back of the money holder.
I created a mini band to go around the holder, to keep it held together, but also to make it look good.
A side view of the band, and all the layers created to make that 3D effect.
Here is a side view of the holder together with the band.
