I'm Back....

YEAH!!! I've been stamping again too! Not my favorite work, but it fixed some of my craving! :)

I'm feeling a lot better! Thank you for all your get well wishes and kind thoughts! It really makes a person feel good!

I made a couple cards last night using a stamp set from the Holiday mini that made it into the Spring/summer Catalog. I'm so glad it made it...I bought this set, but never made a card or anything with it. So now I get to play with it some more!

The first card is the sketch challenge over at SCS. I usually need some help (sketches, casing, things like that) to get me started and then after that I'm usually good to go and create on my own. This card started out with the intentions of using masking...but I didnt like the way it looked...I think I need to use a neutral instead of just doing it on the River Rock CS. But I need to order some...I'm REALLY low on my neutrals. So instead of redo-ing the whole card...I just covered it up with the punched images. Hope you like it.

Stamps: True Friend
Paper: Ruby Red, River Rock, Soft Sky, Blue Bayou and very Vanilla
Ink: Blue Bayou, Ruby Red and River Rock
Accessories: Soft Sky DS Ribbon

I CASEd this card from the Stampin' Success (a magazine demonstrators get from Stampin' Up). I changed the color combos, the stamps used and I scalloped the bottom of the card. I finally got that down, so now it actually looks like a scalloped edge! At first I didn't like it, but it grew on me once I stared at it for a while. LOL.

Stamps: True Friend
Paper: Really Rust, Soft Sky and Very Vanilla
Ink: Really Rust, Old Olive markers and Soft Sky Stamp Pad.
Accessories: Old Olive Wide Grosgrain, Scallop punch, 1 1/4 circle Punch and corner rounder.

Hope you enjoyed my cards! Thanks for stopping by!

No stamping lately! Just letting you know that I'll try to get some done today. No promises though...I've been on antibiotics for a sinus infection and now I'm having an allergic reaction to it. My first allergic reaction to I have this rash all over my body (which doesn't bother me that much), but my joints have been hurting since the rash appeared so it's hard to sit or stand for long periods of time...or just even walk for a long time. So I got to watch myself. I took some allergy medicine last night and that seemed to help a little bit...I legs don't hurt as bad as they did last night. And last night was the worst of it. So maybe I'm just getting better! :) Supposedly I have four more days of this....

Anyways....hopefully I'll get some stamping done...I miss it!

I just added a calendar I made for my MIL for Christmas 2006. I know it's old, but I took the pictures and just realized that I never shared them with I guess you get to see them. I swear the calendar looks better in real life...well you can see things better. LOL. Her whole house is the vineyard type style so I did the calendar to go a long with that. You can see it in the right hand column. Thanks for looking! It was hard to give it away.

I'm trying to figure out what I want to do for Christmas cards. I think I might stick with this one. Not a whole lot of coloring and it's pretty simple. I think I'll go play a little more and make up my mind then. :)

Stamps: Wishing you Cheer

Paper: Purely Pomegranate, Wild Wasabi, Soft Sky and Very Vanilla

Ink: Close to Cocoa, So Saffron, Purely Pomegranate, Wild Wasabi, Soft Sky and Basic Gray
