mytime duck

OK I have a dilemma, and need your help!

To thank you for helping me I will randomly draw a winner on Friday, from the list of people who comment on this post.

First we will talk about the free goody.

I made this carrot out of Bazzil card-stock. I got the template at Target! How cool huh?

Anyway Christine from All That Scraps designed this cute little duck on the tag called “bunny ears”. Her designs are called C.C. Designs-and are super cute!  Since I’m in LOVE with her new stamp I figured I would give one away! So the lucky winner will get this stamp (mounted on e-z mount) inside my cute little carrot holder.

You an see her stamps on her website @

So here is my dilemma.

OK so I have started this blog. Now I am torn about what to do about uploading my creations. This is where you, and your opinions come in. BRUTAL HONESTY OK.

 I think the point of my blog is to not only share, but teach, and have fun with what I do. I can obviously share more on here about my creations than anywhere else. As well as life in general , but plan on sticking to the stamping thing mostly.

That being said, should I keep SOMEof my creations EXCLUSIVE to my blog. Meaning I will not upload them on SCS.

OR post them in both places?

Now I will definitely continue to post regularly on SCS no matter what, but I guess I figure why check my blog if you can see my stuff in my SCS gallery, and visa versa. Does that make sense?

What is the point of uploading in two places for everything? How does that keep it interesting. Lately I have been like

“for more creative info check my blog”

 and Im not crazy about doing that. I still fill in the recipe and give a general commentary on my creations. I hat when people give NO recipe and then direct you to their blog. I dont know why I just do. Plus I think the rules are you need to give some recipe.

Do you think uploading in both is good? Cause if you missed it here you may see it there?

Alright-now I’m turning the mike over to you-my pretend stamping friends! LOL!

To post on both or be exclusive. Any and all opinions appreciated.

Barrow of Spring

Mar 28, 2007 Author: mytime | Filed under: Cards


I am SO ready for spring. I have been dying to get this stamp by Gina K. Every-time I saw a card with it I wanted it more. When I was placing my order at I was SO excited to see she is carrying Gina K.’s line!

So in my basket it went! As well as a bunch of other goodies.

I bought this patterned paper from there called Farmers Market by Flair Designs. Its a 12×12 piece with several different “seed” packets. When my order arrived I noticed that one of the seed packets matched the flowers in the wheel barrow! So I cut that one out, and one thing lead to another. Now, here is the final product! This card is 5 1/2 x 5 1/2. The Prima is also the same flower. Used the seed packet for the total inspiration of this card.

My Natural vanilla card-stock is stamped in weathered bkgd, and DTP the edges. The saffron layer is cuttlebugged with the stylized flowers, then rubbed with white craft ink, and colorbox chalk ink on the leaves. Ribbon is May Arts. On the barrow I stamped in brown stazon, then used my white singlo pen for the flowers. Colored using WWC, and blender pen.

In all honesty, while I LOVE Primas I have a hard time with the larger ones, making “centers” for them. In all honesty the thing I hate most about this is the beaded button flower center. Oh well!

Share with me how you dress up your Prima centers! I need help!
