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!

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!

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!

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....
