Neaploitan Delight

Can you say YUM!! I know-its missing vanilla and chocolate ice cream, but that was my thought when creating this card. Its so 1950’s Diner appeal isn’t it?

Just agree with me-Like I say to Jason, just nod your head. ūüėÄ

I stamped and cut the bowl, so its on dimensionals. The syrup (YUM) and Cherry have a Sakura clear glaze pen over  them. Look so cute in-person with that small detail.

This card was made using Gina K’s¬†NEW! Stamp for a Cause-How Sweet it is!

$7 from the sale of EVERY set goes to benefit the American Diabetes Association and the Juvenile Diabetes Foundation.

I personally love the wide spread appeal these set’s have, while at the same time raising money for important causes. THANKS GINA!!! YOU ROCK!

After punching our my Giga Scallop circle, I found this was “missing” something. I then remembered my Celebration Frames set by Lizzie Anne, and thought it was PERFECT! Just that lil something.

 I love scallops and circles. So I had to continue them throughout the card. Added some paper piercing and it was complete.

Hope you like it!

I am anxiously awaiting delivery of my Lizzie Anne sets (they got lost in the mail :C), and my New! Gina K! I got that punny birthday set, and the hippie set by Melanie. LOVE them. I also got some other YUMMIES to play with today, as I was enabled by my friend Lynda. DONT VISIT HER! Its bad on the wallet.

Because of her I recently ordered some Inkadinkadoo stamps/paper from Lindsay¬†(who is the BESTEST/fastest ebayer-ever!!! She rocks!) and I shopped at Mother’s and Daughter’s and got the CUTEST stamps/paper.

OK I gotta run-its my 2 hour block to play with the kids-then its “mytime” ūüėÄ

Vera Bradley has been replaced!

Well you would NOT believe what I bought!

Everyone talks about this new online shopping place called ETSY. The purpose of it¬†is for people/crafter’s (like us), to have a place to buy and sell HANDMADE stuff. Its pretty cool.

OMG! I could spend ALL day just browsing, and¬†drooling over stuff. You can add items to your favorites or even seller’s.

PLUS I thinking its cool to be able to support crafter’s like ourselves.

Anyway-I LOVE Amy Butler paper. Its put out by K & Co.

 Well, to my surprise she (Amy Butler) makes FABRIC line people!! HELLO! Gorgeous fabric! Just like my favorite pieces of cardstock! Its like 2 worlds colliding with LOVELY patterns! LOL!

So upon browsing Etsy, I began my search looking at handbag’s. A girl can NEVER have too many right?

I am normally into getting the newest Vera Bradley stuff. So I said WHY NOT try out some new HANDMADE version right?

So, after browsing the¬†handbag’s section,¬†I found this one particular seller at bagladiesinpa’s shop¬†(her name is Lisa). I was SO drawn to her stuff. Fresh, clean yet funky and fun. I were a bag I would be one of hers.

 I use to sew, and can SO appreciate handmade bags and stuff, cause I could NEVER do anything like that, nor would I want to.

After looking at her collections, ¬†I saw a style bag she made that I LOVED!¬†But not in a FABRIC that I had to have.¬†¬†I¬†had seen¬†other bag’s with¬†a Amy Butler fabric I WANTED it in. So I PM’d her, and asked her if she could make me her “Cleo style” bag, using the “Lace-work” fabric by Amy Butler. Basically customize a bag for me-LOL!

She got back to me, and said she would! She also made some “accessories” that I had to have too! Smart woman.

Her photos and descriptions were great and helpful. Her communication ROCKED, as did her overall customer service.

She is a MYTIME approved seller :D. I am VERY picky so that is a HUGE compliment.

Here is what I got!

NOTE: This photo was copy/pasted from her site. I figure since I am giving her a good review she won’t mind!

My new bag/accessories Bag, check book cover, zip bag, and key toggle

When it was done she contacted me to let me know it was listed if I still wanted it! (UM YEAH!!!! I asked for it)

After she shipped it was on my door 3 days later!

It came beautifully wrapped-so professional. Her communication ROCKED!

When I saw the bag and items, it was even BETTER in person! Very well made.

What a great experience I had. I am now buying my bag’s handmade from her, here on out.

FYI I am not related to this person, or anything. I just HAD to share my experience with all of you, cause I know only YOU could appreciate my babble about a bag-especially since its created from the same style of paper I’m addicted too!

I’ll be back later with some “stamping related” stuff to share.
