One Stamp & many use.....

Hello Everyone!
Hope you all are doing fine!!! I just managed to step in my craftroom yesterday...all my stuff collected a thick layer of dust on them :(
I just found few stamp sets that I didn't use yet!
Did you check out Virginia's- "how I stretch my stamp" series????
Its important how we pick our stamp will we get enough usage?? We spend atleast $10-$20 on a decent stamp it worth buying? Will we use it a lot ?? Can we use the images for multiple occasions?
These are few very important question we should consider when we buy our stamps.
Its easy to chose floral, botanical images because we can use them again and again but when it comes to specific images it always good to think about the possibilities.
For example this set from PAPER SMOOCHES...

I loooooooove all the PS stamp sets...want to buy them all but my crafty budget doesn't allow me to get them all so I try to pick the one I'll use a lot!
It looks like only a school themed set but you can do a lil' or lot more with it....
Today I'll show three cards I made with this set and again next week I'll show three more..

First card is not a school themed one.... its a cute Birthday card!! I used the Lovely Simple Stories papers .

This card is for the following challenges..
Celebrate the Occasion: Happy Birthday.

 Stamps & Fun = Creativity : Happy Birthday.
Victorine Originals :Birthday/Happy everything.

Next is a teacher thank you card....I used scraps of different DP for this simple card.
I also used the other images from the stamp set  to create a background too.

This card is for the following challenges..
 Crazy Amigo Challenge : Scrap card.
Party Time Tuesdays : Anything goes.
Paper Playtime : Anything Goes + Sentiment.

Finally a back to school card.....CAS one! 
The lovely DPs are from My Mind's Eye.

This card is for the following challenges..
Stampin' Sisters in Christ : Use Flags or banners.
2 Sisters : Anything Goes.
Love to Create -: Anything Goes.
Scrapbook Sisters: Anything goes.

I'll enter these cards for Virginia's challenge !!!

3rd Blogoversary!!!

I'm Alive!!!!............ I'm still here!!!!
YEP!!!! I still exist on this Earth!!
Sorry for the long bloggy break...I had a family emergency!
I'll just tell you all in short....
On May24th I got a call from my mom dad was rushed to the emergency.
Within few hours flew to my hometown with the kids!
On May 25th , my dad had a bypass heart surgery for the second time( he had one two & half years ago)
It was a tough one , it took way longer than usual...... after ten days he came back home!
After a day I had to rush him to the emergency again.... it was a case of heart failure!!
He again had to go for  ANGIOPLASTY....I really felt so bad for him, he was in so much pain!
We all were so worried! Poor my mom she is so sick herself( she needs Dialysis three times a week) and all the stress made it worst!
Unfortunately the procedure was only half successful!
Two more weeks of ICU...
Finally , Dad came back home now! 
He is on strong medications and the doctors are hoping he will be back to his normal acitivities after few months!
I hope everything works out fine...both my parents stay healthy!

Hello Everyone!!!

I'm super excited to be the CFC GDT today!!! 

Loooove CAS-ual Fridays challenge!!!!
This week's challenge is with one of my favorite embellishment!! You all have seen me using it a lot on my creations.

Gotta love blings...isn't it????
Here is my card for this challenge....
I used few of my new crafty goodies... stamps are HeroArts-Woodgrain and sentiment from HA/OWH-YEAR ROUND SENTIMENTS stamps set. 
I used lots of star and 2mm clear rhinestones from Pizzazz Aplenty. The Embellie Gellie and Best Glue Ever from Scraperfect makes it super easy to attach the teeny tiny blings.
 Finished it with some MayArts jute twine .

This card is also for  LILY PAD CARDS- Star Challlenge.
This week CAS-ual fridays challenge is sponsored by Simon Says Stamp.
Its the best place to shop for latest & trendiest craft goodies...I love their international shipping rates,  works the best for me.
