I love my new TAC™ stamps!

I cant say it enough!! I love love love my new stamps from theangelcompany™....

I've had my kit now for little over a week, and I am having so much fun with it. I have always been a Stampin Up lover ~ for as long as I've been stamping. I even pulled out a few of Stampin Up's foam stamps (for those of you who can remember that far back) the other day. And yes, SU! will always hold a place in my heart ~ but it has to make room now for my angel stamps!!

I guess I have been in a spring mood lately with all the bight and cheery colors. With the weather lately - the sun shinning, the birds chirping, it's been lovely. Of course like my hubby says "if you don't like the weather just wait 5 minutes" and of course, only in Kentucky! Today we are supposed to get a lot of rain. But the past few days have been wonderful. I think that I am going to stick the bird feeder out! Yes, they ate ALL of our sunflower seeds off the plants last year, but that's ok. They've got to eat too!

Ooops, the train de-railed again! I get so off track sometimes ;)

About the card, yes. That's what I was talking about ~ the cheery colors and such. Well, I just could not resist more cheerful-ness (and to a dear friend I left in California - I'm the perkier one!) I just had to use the yellows from my Brighten my Day pad.

I am trying to make a bunch of cards that have my TAC™ stamps on them. Of course I want to use them, but I want to make a few more to keep as samples to show. This card was actually made for a friend who just signed up with TAC™ under me. Already a downline! Yuppers, I am really happy about being an Angel, and I want to share that with others. So I made this little card to just say "hi" and thank her for signing up with TAC™.

The base card is So Saffron and I layered a piece of yellow dotted paper from the Brighten my Day collection that I sponged with So Saffron ink on top of that. I then took another piece of So Saffron and layered the yellow flowered paper that I sponged on top of that after I added a length of pink rick rak to it. I stamped the little chick from Little Friends, colored it with pencils and sponged around the outside also. I layered that on to a piece of Pink Passion cs and So Saffron cs. For the sentiment in the lower corner I stamped the "hi" from the Little Friends set on So Saffron and layered that on to a piece of Pink Passion scrap and I was thru.

I'm still not sure if I like this card or not. I LOVE the Purely Pomegranate paper, and I'm just as in love with the DP from Heidi Grace ~ but I still don't think that the chair goes well with it. But oh well! It will have to do.

The card base is Purely Pomegranate. I layered the DP from Heidi Grace on top of a piece of Wild Wasabi and distressed the edges. I also sponged some Old Olive ink around the DP. I also used my corner rounder on the top right of the card.

I stamped the image from Everyday Events and colored it in with pencils. The flowers are colored in with my SU markers. I used my Mega Scallop Circle Punch to punch out the image, then I sponged Old Olive ink around that. I then punched out the piece of Wild Wasabi with my Giga Scallop Circle Punch and used my white gel pen to doodle around that panel. Lastly I stamped the word "hello" from the Trendy Greetings set with my versamark pad and I was done!

Now I would like to show you a little basket that I made for my DD's teacher. She likes the little things that I make and I thought that this would be nice for Easter.

I can not take credit for it though. Yes, I did make it ~ but I first saw it on Leslie Millers blog Running with Scissors. You must check out her blog, it's amazing! Go there to check out the so simple, easy peasy instructions! These are so cute and quick and easy to do that you'll have a dozen done in no time!!

Well, that's enough for me today ~ I've got to go! Time to create.

See you back here tomorrow, same time ~ same place!
