So Sorry!

So sorry I've been MIA for almost a week!  Just been busy and didn't get pictures downloaded earlier!  Ashley left yesterday and I stopped off at IKEA on the way from the airport.  I was real proud of myself - I bought about 6-7 items but my total was only about $35!!  That place really has some interesting things and I love to wander around in the store and look at all their neat organizing ideas.  After that, I stopped at Kohl's and picked up a sweater and a top (for me of course!).  Ashley made it safely home.  As it turned out, our friends, Don and Sharon were in San Antonio for a few days and picked her up at the airport. 

Today is Wednesday which is the Sketch Challenge over at Stamping Queen's.  I did my card in My Digital Studio again using some of the new downloads that were made available on Tuesday. (see two of them at end of post)  I have been wanting this stamp set for a couple of years now.  It is available only in the Spanish SU catalog.  I just love the butterfly in the set.  There is also a very pretty flower and a bee along with a text stamp (which I used on the white circle.)

Here are two of Tuesday's MDS downloads that I used in creating my card:

Today is the last day for the Online Extravaganza.  If you have been "on the fence" about some of the items, this is it!  If you want me to order any of the sale items for you, let me know ASAP!!

Stamping Queens Sketch Wednesday

I made another sketch card this week for the Stamping Queens using My Digital Studio.  I really love the texture in this card.  I used a recent download, Frosty Days II.  Again, this could be easily duplicated without using MDS. 

The card base is Pool Party with Melon Mambo as the next layer.  Then the polka dot DSP layer.  The Pool Party rectangle DSP is matted with Soft Suede,  The white stamped rectangle is matted with Melon Mambo.  The snowflake is stamped with Pool Party and a brad inserted in the center.  After adding all the elements to the card, I used a background stamp in white over the whole card and reduced the opacity to give a snowy effect.  I love how this turned out!  Below is the sketch we had to use.  Hopefully, you will give this sketch a try - it's an easy one!  Show us what you create by posting your card HERE.

The Online Extravaganza is still going on (until Nov. 30) and it is a great time to get My Digital Studio Express.  Included in the promotion is the opportunity to receive a free bundle of preselected digital downloads (at least a $39.95 value) with the purchase of My Digital Studio Express.  The bundle options are:

While I had MDS opened on Monday, I created a couple of other things.

This would be great to give to someone as a gift (just change the name & date!).  Print it out, mat it and put it in a frame.  Voila!  A quick and easy gift of a family crest!

This picture is of Westminster Abbey in London.  It is from our trip last spring.  I just changed the photo effect to black and white and matted it in black on grey paper.  Added a few snippets of DSP on the side and the flourish from Baroque Motifs!  Easy peasy!

I am enjoying my time with Ashley.  We took a walk around the neighborhood yesterday morning, did a little creating in my stamp room, went to town for lunch and a quick (??) trip to WalMart and the Dollar Store.  Last night, she cooked dinner for us.  Food always tastes better when someone else does the cooking, doesn't it??  She loves to cook too.  Today Marianne is going to come over and we will play in my stamp room a while and then get some of our dishes ready for tomorrow's feast.
