I'm Back!

Hi everyone, I'm back from sunny Arizona and ready to stamp. We had a great time on vacation despite the fact that Bethany was sick the first 4 days and I got the flu the last 2. Hmmmm....there's no place like home.

I have a stamp share that I am involved in this weekend and have to make 3 different cards. In other words, I better get stampin' I will share them with you all either Saturday or Sunday depending on time.

The next couple of days will be spent sorting the bulk mono order I just placed 1440 pieces. It has to be sorted before Saturday and I also have to make the 3 cards (12 of each design).

Hope you all are doing well!

I'm Blue!

You Are A Blue Girl

Relationships and feelings are the most important things to you.

You are empathetic and accepting - and good at avoiding conflict.

If someone close to you is in pain, it makes you hurt as well.

You try to heal the ones you love with your kind and open heart.

This one I did!

Good Morning!

This is one of the projects I designed for my Hostess Club yesterday. My ladies seemed to have a great time. The other projects I CASED from scs. I do give credit to all of the beautiful projects I CASE. This card though I did. Can I just tell you how much I love the Cosmo Fine ROCKS!

The cute little jolly rancher lolli covers

These are what I made for Bethany's preschool class. I found the pattern for these on Dawn's blog and fell in love with them. She is so talented. They are so easy to make. I haven't figured out how to show you the inside yet (I am no good at taking pictures). I did take some with all of the items together and will try to get them uploaded so I can share them. They hold a Jolly Rancher heartshaped lollipop. Thank you Dawn!

Okay, so I still haven't gotten much done card wise. I've been playing with my new birthday gift.....My hubby got me Adobe Photoshop Elements 6.0. Unfortunately, I don't know how to use it to do digital scrapbooking so I have been trying to learn that lately.

Anyone know how to load paper and embelishments into this? Please email me if you have any ideas for me!

Crazy Week!

It has been such a crazy buzy week. I haven't done any stamping at all! I have been trying to get some other business things done though so at least it has been stamping realated right?!?! I am starting a virtual stamping club in March! If anyone is interested email me and I will get the information out to you. Hopefully I will get some stamping done soon and get it posted!

My family is coming on Thursday for the weekend and we have 2 birthday party's on Saturday. The crazy thing with that is that the parties are both for people who have birthdays on different days other than Saturday and my birthday IS on Saturday. Hmmmm wondering when we're celebrating my birthday (maybe a surprise party - doubt it! 8o)~ )

Have a great week and Happy Stampin'!
