Happy Friday!

So I actually got out of the house today.
(I'm the type that can spend days at home and never get bored!)
I went and visited with Michi at Scrapbooker's Emporium
in Texarkana and will be teaching my very first mini album class
there in August :)  I can't wait!  
Then I went to Wal-Mart...I hadn't been in close to two months; seriously.
I came across two friends who were shopping.  They both said the same
thing "I'm just trying to get my stuff and get outta here!"  I guess a lot of us share that
same disdain for stepping through the doors of Wal Mart LOL
But it's done.  Thank the Lord, it's done. 

Now on to scrappy stuff!
I had the best intentions of blogging my other projects that were 
featured here and there yesterday (and Wednesday!), but I just didn't get around to it.  
So, here we go...

I HEART IPPITY
I have been in love with this stamp ever since I laid eyes on it
and can't believe that I'm just now getting around to using it:
BE BRAVE...BRANCH OUT
IPK-153
I used my watercolor pencils and Zig markers on this one.
And the best part?  I dug waaay back into my paper collection and brought out
some old Basic Grey...I love to use up the old stuff!
You can order Ippity (Unity Brand) Stamps here:

MY SCRAPBOOK NOOK
For this Wednesday's CARDS Challenge, I went with a sketch.
Once again, I am a self-proclaimed pretty-pitiful-sketch-artist...but hey, I try hehe!
I've really enjoyed working with the Echo Park This & That Collection
this month...both the masculine and feminine sets are drool-worthy.
I wanted to carry the 'cloud' motif up towards the top of the card, so I hand-cut 
these two clouds from cardstock and then embossed.
I made this one for my son, who'll be graduating two weeks from today :)
Both cards were quick and reinforced my love of using sketches!
A hint for June's Nook Kit?  It has to do with SIMPLE and FRESH...hmmmm?

VINTAGE STREET MARKET
I've said it before and I'll say it again...I.love.these.BINGO.cards
You can get a huge collection pack of 'em directly from VSM!
This collage art is layered with lots of vintage goodness.
I have several photos and details up on the blog.
And this is the card that I made for my mom for Mother's Day...she loved it :)
Most every single thing on both projects came from Vintage Street Market!

I'll upload the newest mini album that I made tomorrow.
Off to grab a bite to eat and relax.
Enjoy your weekend!
