OMG! I know this has nothing to do with craftiness, but I saw this trailer when I rented Clerks II the other day....and I about DIED laughing.
I know...I am a die-hard Star Wars Geek.
I need Star Wars stamps. O.O

This card measures 4.25"x4.25" and is folded about half inch short of being even. I punched half of a 1" circle in the top edge of the card, stamped the love stamp from Riveting on Whisper White CS and punched it before lining it up with th punched circle and adhering it to the card.
The background is stamped with Pink Passion and Versamark inks using stamps from the Simply Said stamp set. Then I stamped the flowers from Simply Said and water colored them using Pink Passion, Perfect Plum, Green Galore and Ruby Red inks. Layered this onto Perfect Plum and adhered both to the card. Added some touches on the flowers with Sakura Clear Stardust pen. Viola. Done. Cute.

Is that my mojo that I see coming back? I don't know...I don't want to jinx it with getting all excited. So...this card....is made with my new Peaceful Wishes stamp set and French Script BG. (My DBF and I joked that I broke in three virgin stamps this weekend!)
I stamped French Script BG with Cranberry Crisp ink on Cranberry Crisp paper and then inked the edges with Chocolate Chip. Stamped Linen BG with True Thyme ink on True Tyme paper and inked the edges with Chocolate Chip. Stamped the sprig with True Thyme on Whisper White CS and inked the edges with....wait for it....Chocolate Chip AND Creamy Caramel. The corners are punched with SU's ticket corner punch (innit just rockin'?) and stuck together with the miracle in a little green and white bottle...Mono Multi.
After all the layers were put together....it still needed something so I busted out some Versamark and Classy Copper EP then stamped and embossed the Peaceful Wishes sentiment.
Whoot! It's the inspiration fairy hitting again!

Aren't these the darndest things?! I stamped the stocking, snowman, and Christmas Tree from Little Somethings onto plain white CS and colored them. Then I punched them with a half inch circle punch and used Judikins Diamond Glaze to adhere them to the backs of flat glass marbles. Then I put a small round magnet on that and adhered it with the DG again. I stuck them in this Altoid tin as a set and will get around to covering it soon to make it a cute matchy matchy set!
Re-inker onaments. Well...they didn't turn out as well as I had hoped. I did get the hang of it with the last few . I put a few drops of re-inker in the ball and a few drops of water before swirling it around inside. I dumped out the excess water and ink then poured a fine clear glitter into the ball and swished it around to coat evenly. Some of them are kinda stripey, some clumpy....I need some advice on these! I want to make some before the craft show in a couple weeks! I used Crandberry Crisp, Buckaroo Blue, and True Thyme on these ones.
