Awhile back I bought an adorable set of stamps illustrated by: Laurie Wilson, called "Every Day Jar-gon" from Clear Dollar Stamps but had not had a chance to use it. I made the time today, and I think the card turned out kind of nice. There are so many different stamps with the set, I thought I would post a picture for you to see.
Edit-5:01 PM CDT...This card is listed on CardMaker magazines' Designer Blog Roll! Go check them out! It is a great place to get some inspiration!

I thought I would offer up a little sweet stuff to celebrate 30,000 hits to my blog.
Thanks to all of you, I am almost there!
My all time favorite glitter is Martha Stewart's Gemstone glitters. I was lucky enough to find a large set this past weekend and snatched it up to share with one lucky winner.

It is that easy!

I thought I would share this cute little cookie label I made with "Clear Dollar Stamp's" "Baked For You Tag Set". I just used a couple of the stamps and there are so many more. It would be a wonderful set to have so you could make some nice Christmas or any time baked gifts.
I used "My Mind's Eye's"
Holliday Glitter Book" DP, Bazzil Dots -Clover, and Bazzil Bling light teal CS.
Hubby liked it when I made this one because he got homemade chocolate chip cookies! LOL!
I am entering this in the following challenges:
Whimsy Stamps - Watercolors
My Time To Craft - Tags So Much
Creative Inspirations - New or Neglected
I used the brand new release "Baked For You" set from CDS
Please leave a comment and let me know what you think....now, I am going for a glass of milk! LOL!

I was in the mood for a few challenges this morning and I just received "Clear Dollar Stamp's" adorable "Just Chillin" set illustrated by my friend Wendy Hall, so I used it for the challenges.
It is a simple little "Thank You" card made in "easel fold style". I had not seen one until I hit "Secret Crafter Saturday's Challenge" blog this morning. It is too cool!
The glittered Cardstocks are from "Doodlebug Designs" and the blue CS is Bazzill Dots. I altered the sentiment to fit a couple of other challenges. The set has some really cute ones but I needed a "Thank You" card so I stamped the "Brrry" and the rest I did on my computer.
Here are the challenges I entered this one in...
Mojo Monday Challenge - Sketch
Used it! ;)
Secret Crafter Saturday - Easel Cards
My first and it was fun!
Colour Create Challenge - Blue, Silver and White
check, check and check! ;)
Simon Says Stamps Challenge - Simon Says - "Give Thanks"
Thank you card. :)
This would have fit perfectly into SSSC "Sparkle" challenge last week too!
Pile It On - "Thank You" + other challenges
Yeppers....Thank You card and a few other challenges!
All Sorts Challenge - "Bring Out Your Bling"
I used gems, glitters, sparkly ribbon, and glittered cardstock
My Time to Craft Challenge - "So Many Scallops"
In my card it could be "SEW many scallops"!
I stitched a scalloped frame around the card and also added some punched scallops around the sentiment . I also used some scalloped ribbon.
Creative Card Crew - Ribbons and Gems
Used 'em both!
I used 2 sizes of Spellbinder's square Nestabilities on the main image and the frame for it. I also nested the scallops behind the sentiment.

Please join us in uplifting a very special little girl. Join our "Spread The Love" blog hop for Jamie
Sooooo glad you dropped by!
"On October 4th, 4 teenagers armed with knives broke into a home in a small town in New Hampshire. Alone and sleeping inside were a mother and her 11 year old daughter. These 4 boys broke into this home with the intent to rob and kill anyone inside. They stabbed the mom, Kimberly Cates, to death and left her daughter, Jaimie, for dead in their driveway. It was a completely random act, their home was chosen only due to its secluded surroundings."
Our hope is that everyone hopping around today will stop for a moment and think about Jaimie and her father and what life must be like for them now. One moment in time has changed their lives forever. We are asking that everyone reading this message please take a moment to make a card and send it off to Jaimie. You can make something very simple or much more involved, but please share some words of hope and love and let her know that people do care and want the best for her. Please send your card to the address below:
c/o Mont Vernon Fire Station
Mont Vernon, NH 03057
I am very short on time right now but absolutely could not say no to helping this sweet little girl. I know that most of you are busy too but hope you will take a short little piece of your time to send some love that will uplift and warm the heart of this little girl for a life time.
