Happy birthday to my mom

Made a card today in honor of my mom's birthday. Of course I kind of ran out of room to put a sentiment on it, so it doesn't necessarily have to be a birthday card. I even pulled out the glitter (eek, a mess!) I'm happy though. The stamp set is called For All You Do (#115360 $23.95) and the colors are Mellow Moss and Blush Blossom.

Stamp Camp Recap!

Wow, was that fun! I am very excited to report that my first ever stamp camp was a great success. I had to make a little switch in the card lineup because of an unfortunate backorder of the butterfly embosslit for the green/purple card. Since I already had the pieces cut for the card though, I had to quickly improvise and design another card. Here is the replacement card:

I had 7 people come to stamp, and one just came to chat! :) One first-time stamper, and several seasoned professionals. I had planned to have it more organized, but people trickled in and my best intentions went out the window. Everyone wanted to work together at the kitchen table, and it got a little crazy, but I think everyone had a wonderful time. I certainly did!

After the stamp camp ended, my page-a-week girlfriends pulled out their scrapping supplies and we had ourselves a crop party into the wee hours of Sunday morning. Three girls stayed overnight and we carried on today too. Now that's what I call a GREAT weekend!

Computer down...stamping time up!

My desktop computer has seemingly died a slow and painful death. Luckily, my kids got a laptop from their dad last summer though, so I've not been totally cut off from the rest of the world. But it's just not the same...so I've had considerably more time to spend doing other things like stamping! Here are the cards I've made this week, and I'm having so much fun, think I'll keep going. Wahoo!

Thank you cards

I have been wanting to use this color combination for a week or so, and finally got chance. I made some thank you cards for the kids to use...they have LOTS to be thankful for (they were spoiled rotten this Christmas!)

Colors are Always Artichoke, Ric Razzleberry, and Very Vanilla.

NOT a Christmas card!

With everything and everyone being in hyper-Christmas mode, I needed a little change of pace. I was able to put in a pre-order for new Stampin' Up products this month and was excited to play around a little bit today. I made this simple little card using 2 new sets which will be available January 5th. I {Heart} Hearts and Well Scripted are the names of the sets...my new favorites, I can tell already!

Colors are Ruby Red, Cameo Coral, Old Olive, and Very Vanilla.

Bad blogger!

Oh look, I've used this title before...how funny! OK so it's been a month and a couple days since I've posted. But I actually have done more stamping than I have the rest of the year (believe it or not!) So let me just cut to the chase here and post all the Christmas cards I was busy making. It took several samples for me to finally decide which ones I liked well enough to duplicate 40 times for the masses. Sending out Christmas cards has been a real hit-or-miss thing with me, especially since my separation...just didn't feel like it. Things are looking up though, and I am pleased to report that I not only made 40+ cards, but I also wrote them out, addressed the envelopes and have mailed MOST of them already! Wahoo! Now Christmas shopping on the other hand...not so wahoo just yet.
