Good Morning everyone...and Happy Monday!

I hope that you all had a great weekend and if you celebrate Father's Day...I hope you encouraged the man/men in your life with love, laughter, and loads of fun!

Now, I know that you are probably wondering what the title of my post means.  Well, my blog will be moving.  I am going to be using WordPress as oppose to blogger and since I am not as tech savvy as I would like to think...I am running into a few "lemons"....but you know Kimba....I'm gonna make some tasty lemonade!...LOL!!  I want my blog to represent me and my personality as well as a new venture that I plan on embarking in....don't worry, you will know soon enough.  So, please be patient with me.  So, for this week, I won't be posting any cards and one the new blog is up and running, I will have a link that will re-direct you from this blog to my new one.

Thanks again for your patience and I hope you will continue you checking in and following my blog.  You won't be disappointed!  Thanks for stopping by!

SCRAPLING - here's another one...

SCRAMBLE june 11 by kimba7669
Hey everybody....
If you tuned into yesterday on my blog you would know that I had mentioned about learning about Scraplings.  Well, here is another Scrapling that I created.  One of my friends is due to have a baby anyday now and I am going to give this one to her when I give her a "Welcome Home" gift - a basket of her favorite goodies.  Sorry for the quick post, but this week my son has his Math Regents Exam and I am helping him study for it.  As always, thanks for stopping by!

SCRAPLINGS - Do you know what they are?

SCRAMBLE june 11 - 2 by kimba7669

Hi there ya'll.....Happy Monday!

Today's card is something that "was" new to me but not anymore.  I am part of a Flickr Group and the members have a game that we play every so often.  There is a hostess and she runs the game and it's called The 90-minute Scramble.  What that means is that you have to create a card in 90 minutes, using at least one HeroArts stamp...and sometimes there's a twist, like the card needs to have buttons, or it needs to have the color red.  So, this past Saturday's Scramble was to create a SCRAPLING....and this is what I learned....and I am sure you are wondering what a Scrapling is - a Scrapling is a card that is created with the left over piece of cardstock when you cut a 5.5 x 4.25 piece...you are left with a  1.25 x 4.25 piece and this is what I used to create the card above.  This was a challenge for me because it was hard to hold back on the embellishments, and so I decided to keep the stamped image as the "REAL" embellishment and  focal point.  You should give this a try.  What a great way to use up your leftover CS.  Shout out to Stampin' Sue for being such a great hostess and for this AWESOME idea called Scraplings!

I hope you learned something new today.  Isn't that what it's all about?  Learning something new and using it in a creative way....give it a try...I know that once you start creating Scraplings, you won't be able to stop....

Thanks for stopping by!

You're Special - WATERCOLOR

June2011A -You're Special - WATERCOLOR by kimba7669

Hey there all-

Happy Monday to you.  I hope that you had a great weekend.  This weekend my kids were away til Sunday, so hubby and I had the house to ourselves.  The only bad thing about that was trying to figure what to do and trying to cram EVERYTHING into 3 days...LOL!!!  One of the things I did get to do is play with my Distress Inks and create this card using a watercolor technique.  I stamped Broken China and Wild Honey on my acrylic block and spritzed it with water, and with a brush, just painted the flower.  Here is a link with a video that shows you how to do this technique.  It's being done by HeroArts Artist Shari Carroll.  It's really easy, so please give it a try.  Just another way to add color to your cards and projects.

Thanks for stopping by.  I love it when you do.  Until tomorrow....
