I could not, for the life of me, get a good picture! Actually....if you double click on it you can see how pretty & sparkley it is. It really is a beautiful card! He was born & raised on a farm in Iowa. If any of you have ever been...It is such beautiful country! These old wind mills are every where!
All of the products are from B & J's art stamps. The technique is something I learned at our most recent stamp convention. It involves a lot of stamping over stamping & clear embossing. If you can see the little bit of snow...I used Liquid Applique & a little giltter for that.
Well that is it for today! I have many many projects in the works as March & April are like Christmas for me (except I do not get anything) as we have sooooooo many birthdays on both sides of the family! Guess I had better stop procrastinating & get to work!
Have a fabulous day!!!
& thank to all who leave such kind Comments!!

This card if for my sister in Minnesota her BD is very soon...don't worry she is not a blogger....this card also doubles ashttp://mypaperworld.blogspot.com/ sketch. I really like this one...so clean & simple.
All of the paper & stamps are from Papertrey. I just love these new colors. The flowers are punched from some old punches I had. And I discovered something fabulous!!
First of all....in my perfect fantasy crafty world...every flower paper & flower stamp would come with a coordinating punch!! With that in mind I discovered that I DO have a punch that coordinates with the new papertrey flower paper perfectly!!! I am so excited...& if you have this little flower punch from EK success then you could punch out many many of these cute little flowers for all kinds of projects & cards!! Don't you just love it when that happens!!!
Well that is all I have time for today....I am so sleepy! & 4:00 am will be here in no time...hope you are all having a great week! I can not wait until Saturday so I can do my world wide blogg hop's...don't you just love the Internet!

New Stamp Sets!
I have some good news about two new stamps sets that are being added to the collection at Clear Artistic Stamps. Belinda is offering a special preorder price of $10.95 (versus the regular price of $14.00). This special preorder price is available through next Monday, March 17.I think you'll be inspired by these two sets as much as I am. And don't you just love a discount?This is one of the new sets.
It's called Little Mary Cheeryberry and it has sentiments that are just in time for Mother's Day creations. And then the images can be used way beyond that. Won't these be cute on cards or on altered art for Mom?The other new set is called Tiny Button Baby. If you're like me, you are never without a friend who has a baby on the way. I'm always looking for a new way to make a baby card.
And I think the button stamps in this set are very versatile.Now, in my usual fashion, I've saved the best news for last! Belinda has a terrific special offer that is available on Monday, March 17 for one day only. This is in honor of her daughter's birthday, which is on St. Patrick's Day. The special offer is a gift book and the Country Life set for only $11.00. Now that's a great bargain! So make sure to go to Clear Artistic Stamps on Monday to get in on this one day event.

Well that is it for today's quick post :( I have to get to work...lots of teeth that need attention!
Have a fabulous day! It is going to be 80 degrees today & totally sunny!!!

The Card for today's post was done with Clear Artistis Stamp set....Nature in Word. I used the glitter,acetate technique for this card. If you have never done this before, you should try it. very easy & fun. Just stamp Image to the back of a piece of acetate with staz-on & use some art glitter glue....the kind that dries clear...add your glitter (also to the back) You do not even have to be all that neat about it either. That is is!!! It is really beautiful in real life!!
Happy, Happy Stamping!! And congrats to all the new guest designers!!!!!

The little dots on the sides are actually little 3D stickers from Joann's Fabric store. I used a circle stamp from Paper Trey with SU Certainly Celery to line the white circle & the 21 is from Michael's crafts #'s set. Then I popped that up & that is it!!!
Very fun challenge...you should give it a try! NOW I have a VERY long list of projects calling my attention PLUS...I have to bake a BD cake today!!! YIKES!! trust me...I am much better with the paper stuff! Things you don't have to eat!
Wish me luck!!
