Clear Dollar Stamps Cards and a News Flash!!!!


Hello everyone!! I hope you had a great weekend and are ready for another fun filled week!!!! I finally got my house back in order after having 5 grandkids last week...we ended up having 2 more last night and will have 4 tomorrow....maybe I should have waited till Wednesday to clean house!!!! Anyway......
Today's CAS challenge on Splitcoast was to use bling.
The Clear Dollar Stamps Under the Sea seahorse image was colored with copics and the red rhinestones were added to the swirly thingys at the top and along the bottom. The little seahorse from the Sassafras Lass paper called Sea Ponies was cut along the right side and flipped over the image.
Recipe: Stamps: Clear Dollar Stamps Under the Sea
Paper: White, Sassafras Lass dp
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black
Accessories: Red Rhinestones, Top Note

The Featured Stamper for Sunday's challenge on Splitcoast was my wonderful friend, Joanne (sleepyinseattle)!!!
Congrats, Joanne, ...you are such a fabulous artist and sooo deserving!!!! Your gallery is sooo awesome...I spent an hour Sunday morning enjoying all your beautiful designs!!! I finally decided to case the Dear Friend card...I kept the same basic layout and friends theme. I changed the stamps to Clear Dollar Stamps Chruch Chatter, used Prima flowers instead of a stamped image, and used different papers. This is also for Sharon Johnson's Stamp Simply challenge to make a card for a friend...the word *friend*needed to be somewhere on the card.
Recipe: Stamps: Clear Dollar Stamps Church Chatter
Paper: White, Baja Breeze, Chocolate Chip, SU dp
Ink: Memento Rich Cocoa
Accessories: Primas, Martha Stewart Punch, SU Corner Punch, Ribbon, Pearls

I made this card on Tuesday for the Color Challenge on Splitcoast...the colors were: Close to Cocoa, Blush Blossom, Certainly Celery, Cameo Coral (Optional), Whisper White (Optional). I really loved the colors this week...perfect for August!!! I needed to make a card for a friend who just bought a new home so I used the Nice Neighborhood set by Clear Dollar Stamps. The images were stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black and colored with copics. The colors were off a bit but close enough, I hope!! Candy Dots and ribbon tabs finish it off.
Recipe:
Stamps: Clear Dollar Stamps Nice Neighborhood
Paper: Blush Blossom, White, Close to Cocoa, Basic Grey's Porcelain, SU dp
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, Memento Rich Cocoa
Accessories: Candy Dots, Punch for the sentiment, Ribbon, Dimensionals, Copics

Good day, sun shines!
There have were times of troubles when I didn't know about opportunities of getting high yields on investments. I was a dump and downright pessimistic person.
I have never thought that there weren't any need in large initial investment.
Now, I feel good, I started take up real income.
It gets down to choose a proper partner who utilizes your funds in a right way - that is incorporate it in real business, parts and divides the income with me.

You can ask, if there are such firms? I have to tell the truth, YES, there are. Please get to know about one of them:

Hello everyone!
I would like to burn a theme at here. There is such a nicey, called HYIP, or High Yield Investment Program. It reminds of financial piramyde, but in rare cases one may happen to meet a company that really pays up to 2% daily not on invested money, but from real profits.

For quite a long time, I earn money with the help of these programs.
I'm with no money problems now, but there are heights that must be conquered . I make 2G daily, and my first investment was 500 dollars only.
Right now, I managed to catch a guaranteed variant to make a sharp rise . Visit my web site to get additional info.
