Woo hoo. weekend is here. I would have liked today better if I did not have to get up at 6:30 this morning. My hubby had to work today and my son had National Guard duty today. Of course, mom has to get up and get hubby off to work and then take son to the National Guard Armory that is an hour away. Oh what a fun way to start a weekend. With all that done, I get to start the weekend. Going to play in my craft room most of the day since I am here by myself and no interruptions. Woo hoo.  Today’s card is what you call a “brick wall” technique. I am really please how it came out.

Opps, almost forgot – one more thing……


The Treasure Hunt.

LNS 2013 Spring Treasure Hunt – LNS Web Ring

I’m participating in the LNS 2013 Spring Treasure Hunt!  How can you play?
At the end of this blog post is a list of all the blogs participating.  These blogs will have the following picture on their blog:
They will also have a clue on their blog having to do with a Stampin’ Up! product.
For instance – MY CLUE IS GLITTER.  This Stampin’ Up! product number’s are: Dazzling Diamonds- 102023, Champagne Glass Glitter -120997, and Silver Glass Glitter -120995 – some fabulous bling for your cards, scrapbook pages, or other creative project.
You will need to make note of what the clue is and whose blog it is on.  So for my entry you’d have:
#1 Visit each blog! 
Since you are stopping by these blogs, be sure to leave a nice comment about their blog, artwork, or ideas.  I hope you have a chance to look at some of my blog entries/pages.  Of course, I’d love for you to subscribe to my blog!
Be sure to note the address or bookmark it or PIN IT! so you can revisit to see
more amazing projects or use some for inspiration. 
Look closely at the cards! You can easily miss details by dismissing items will color combinations outside your comfort zone or images you don’t love love love. Stop! Even the most simple projects can get your creative juices flowing. Believe it! TRUTH
Sometimes poor quality images or lighting stop me but then I see something tote-fab that I didn’t notice at first glance. This happens to me often. We tend to forget each and every project can be used as a map or layout. You can use those colors together or ribbon like that or stamping technique on your next creation! 
I slowly figured out how to swap out items and/or images I do not own and produce something that may or may not be similar. 
Think about it next time. 
#2 Look for the yellow treasure box
#3 Note the clue and whose blog you are on! or just Pin it to a Late Night Stampers Treasure Hunt Board on Pintrest if your into that. 
#4 Collect FIFTY clues and email me your results to
List each clue AND where you found it and remember to include your own name and address and website/blog/fb page/twitter whatever you’re into or nothing if you’re laying low. 
Entries will be check and included in the drawing for the grand prize!
MAY 12TH is the deadline, at midnight.
Winner announced May FIFTEEN on all blogs in the game!
You have from March 1st until May 12th at Midnight PST to collect the clues.  Contest participants who send in their entries by this time will be entered into a drawing for $150 of Stampin’ Up! product.
Ready, set,….go hunting!
