This card opens left to right and then again bottom to top. The front image is from the graduation announcement. The inside image is a Dustin Pike freebie. The sentiment in the very inside is from Create with TLC. The class motto and name card are both also from the school graduation announcement. Copics, nesties, SU dazzling diamonds were all used in the creation of this card.

Create with TLC is having a DT call. There are seriously wonderful sentiments, occassional digis and great digital color/patterned papers posted on this website. Many are for free and many more are available to purchase in the store. I am very sentiment challenged and go to Create with TLC all the time for just the right words. They always seem to be there! So, it was easy to create a card using one of their stamps for the call.

This has been a really long week at work but I finally have some time to play. There are some wonderful new stamp sets out by Our Craft Lounge. I won one of the sets on their introduction blog hop! and have already bought two others. Couldn't wait to take them out to play, but, those 12 hours shifts at work really wiped me out this week. Oh well, playing in my craft room all day today!
This is a wonderful set of playful ants. Almost makes ants at a picnic seem ok!
The card stock and background paper are in my scrap basket.
The image and sentiment are called 'Lifes a Picnic' from OCL.
The ribbon is from Michaels.
The glitter SU dazzling diamonds.
The string of pearls and half pearls from my stash.
Can't forget the embossing, Swiss Dots and my Bigshot!

Yesterday was National Scrapbooking Day. I hope everyone had a great day. I certainly did. I spent 6 hours at Memories of Time in Coos Bay, OR. While I worked on art work for cards rather than scrapbooking, I had a great time.
If you are in the area, Michelle has a great shop and is willing to find things for you if she doesn't carry them. She also put on a great scrap. It is something else to work in an area where, if you don't have it, you just get up, go get it and put your piece together. No waiting until the next time that you go shopping!
I recently bought (yes, I don't only use freebies) some digital images from Bugaboo Stamps. What a great set of images they have. For those who haven't tried digital stamps yet, WOW. No storage (other than your computer), make them any size that you want, print them as many times as you want and...there are hundreds on the internet for free and literally thousands and thousands for sale. So, I spent my day getting these images and some others colored and/or onto cards. Great, uninterrupted fun!
Since I am a nurse, a couple of these are near and dear to my heart!
All of the images are from Bugaboo Stamps, coloring with copics, inky dinky drops and SU dazzling diamonds are the bling. There is some embossing with my bigshot, most edges are inked (I do dislike white edges, LOL) and most of the papers used are scraps from my basket as I really need to use some of these up!
I had a great time last night, also found out this am that won a sketch challenge over at
