Playing with the Sale-A-Bration Rub-Ons

Hi everyone:

Yesterday I decided to try the SU Sale-A-Bration Rub-Ons and I had fun with them. I do suggest cutting out the piece you want to use as they are verys sticky. To highlight the imgae I sponged bashful blue and I think it made it pop.

I am so happy today is Friday. I have been very busy at work and have had no time nor energy to stamp or work on my blog. Hopefully I will stamp all weekend long and have many new items to post on my blog and share with you. I am also preparing my next upcoming classes, they are beautiful if I say so. Stay tuned.

Happy Easter

Happy Easter

These are some cute little Easter Baskets I made for a 3-D swap at the SBSstampers Spring Fling. These were inspired by Leslie Miller's blog - Running with Scissors. I used the new Spring Fling Designer Paper, scalloped circle punch, circle 1 1/4 punch and pink brads from the Soft Subtles family. I filled them some chocolates as every lady nice a liitle chocolate.

I will photograph the items I received in that swap later and post them here as well as the cards I received yesterday during our all day swap.

I love swaps and I love participating in new swaps. Know any new great and fun swaps?

I also love receiving cards.

I have my own Blog!!!

After being a fan of so many other stamping blogs, I decided to create my own blog to share my ideas, projects and make new stamping friends.

It will be a work in progress for awhile until I upload all the content. So please bear with me.

Meet Sifrina "Nunu" Josefina del Valle, alias the Queen of the household.

If you have any suggestions, please e-mail as I need help.

Thanks for reading.
