Well, Marcia and I had a blast making cards, drinking coke and eating M&Ms and here are a couple of our creations.  Marcia was in a pink mood and her cards reflect it, I was a little blue.  We used the new Stampin Up Smooch Spritz, Vanilla Shimmer and LOVE IT!

Surprise!  It's Marcia! Cari convinced me to bring some cards over and post them on our web site.  So here are some new ideas to try.  On this first card, I used scraps of paper, taped them together and ran them through the Cuttlebug (what a great toy).  Then I added a birthday cupcake.  The "icing" of the cake is printed paper which tied into all of the colors on the card.
On the second card, I decided to stitch the stem for the flower and added a piece of ribbon under the stitch to form the leaves.  The leaves are a little droopy from storing them in a bag.  You could use a glue dot to position the leaves upward.

I am spending way too much time with my TV the World Cup is starting to dominate my life (GO SPAIN!!!) I knew I was in trouble when I found myself setting the TV coverage on mute while I sat with my laptop streaming a radio station from Spain during the Spain game last week, and today I was tempted to seek out an Argentinian radio station while I watched the Argentina game but I restrained myself from taking it all too far.  Sooooo... instead today I decided to become more productive and, in between games, I made a couple of cards with flower photos I took at the Conservatory in Tacoma.  I used the Cuttlebug to create the embossed backgrounds, Stampin' Up cardstock and bird punch.

Inky Fingers in June

LOVE THE BIRDS!!! The Inky Fingers and special guests met at Christine's house where, after a delicious lunch, we made this mini scrapbook.  Isn't it adorable? 
Here are a few more pictures of our little get together.
