2 Quick cards to share and more blog candy!

*click here for my massive blog candy give-away**

Just wanted to take a moment to share some quick cards I made for my fave online store Scrappingreatdeals (and they have free shipping now...I know, I know...enabling again tee hee). I used Kraftin' Kimmie stamps- Tree Fairy and Shout Out. Sheila at SGD carries the full line of KK stamps. Okay...I will stop enabling now. If you ever shop at SGD please tell them Andrea sent you...they are so good to me there!

Speaking of spoiling me Sheila is the one that gave me the most recent addition to the blog candy. One of my absolute fave storage solutions from Stampendous- their Thicker storage container. See pic below. I buy heavy acetate and cut it to 8.5x11 to fit the box and I store my ezmounted stamps in there on the sheet. I can fit 3 layers so it really helps with space. I will also be going to SGD this week to pick up some Bella stamps to add to the blog candy to thank you all even more for joining me! It's getting closer and closer to the big draw date!

I also wanted to add a quick feature to my blog- what I am reading now. Going forward it will be in my sidebar. Reading is my absolute fave past time. Well...maybe it's tied with stamping and buying stamping supplies but my earliest memories of life include me always reading and I am always on the hunt for something new to read. The Twilight series got me onto a whole new genre and right now I am reading the Rachel Morgan series from Kim Harrison. I was warned the first book at the beginning is okay but by the end you are hooked and that's exactly what happened for me. Here is what the cover looks like for those of you interested (see below). Well I hope you had a fab weekend and I want to give a shout out to the fun ladies I hung out with this weekend- you know who you are! Thanks for bringing me so many smiles and laughs- I needed them and boy oh boy did I laugh all weekend! Thanks ladies! Smiles...Andrea =)

I just love your creative style. Your cards are just beautiful and so inspiring. Love the colors and layers of the first card and the second card is so cute with all the hearts. Thanks for the inspiring eye candy to start my day and week off.

Love those cards! The second one made me laugh! Kim Harrison?? Does she write about vampires too? I think she was recently recommended to me. I'll hve to check her out! You are so generous. Some lucky person will be very happy!
Peace and Love - Jen

Both the cards are gorgeous!! I use those storage boxes too... they're great. Your craft room doesnt look messy at all... it's how it's supposed to be... I call it "loved".

I really love the fairy card. The image is perfect with those Origin papers. Love it. Thanks for sharing the book, I am going to put it on hold at the library.

Thanks for the tip on the book Andrea!
I am a fellow Twigh-hard and if you recommend this I guess I had better give it a shot.
Have you seen any of the series "Vampire Diaries"?
I am hooked on it now. Not as good as a book but I can record it and watch while crafting. Kinda hard to read and make cards at the same time! LOL!
