Thinking of You Card

Happy New Year's Eve! How are you doing? Have you had a wonderful holiday season? Making resolutions for 2013? I have some goals, but I don't like "making resolutions"; it never seems to stick when I do that. :D

ANYWAY. I'm here with a quick share; this year is going out as crazily as it came in; we were gone 12 hours on Sunday, and I'm not gonna be home much today, either. Kenn and I are opening a show with our Lebanon group, S.P.A.M. (Sunnyside Performing Arts Ministry) on Thursday. Watch for more details! So it's gonna be a GOOD but busy week. :)

Wow. Talk about rabbit trails. LOL Let me see if I can tell you about this card before it happens again!

We did this card for my sister's party in Texas. The card stock colors are Very Vanilla, Cajun Craze, and Crumb Cake. We took a Crumb Cake ink pad and made the background quickly and painlessly; the "thinking of you" from TEENY TINY WISHES is stamped in Cajun Craze, and the tree is stamped with Garden Green. How easy was that?!?!?!

OK, I'm outta here. I need to design thank-you cards, desperately - so that will be happening this week. I've placed my pre-order for the new Occasions Mini, and also for Sale-a-bration!!!! Are you excited about them?!?!!? I so cannot wait to get my new toys, and there's SO much more I want! :D

Have a WONDERFUL day! Be sure and take the time to stamp SOMEthing! HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!

Noel Notes

Good Friday Morning! How are you this cold morning? :D

A quick share today; do you remember me showing you this from our Christmas Stamp Camp? Well, here's another use! :)

My sister's name is Noel; in this case, it made this an easy gift - I could use a Christmas stamp in a non-traditional Christmas way! :) She absolutely LOVED it! Because I finished it in Texas, I had limited resources - but I did have the scallop edge punch. So, I punched a super-thin strip of Cajun Craze and crinkled it around the edge of the "thanks" punch. It took some doing - the card stock was super stiff for such a small circle! - but I beat it. :D

I just have to share another photo of my beautiful niece. :D She doesn't smile too much when there's a camera around; she knows she's going to get flashed in the eyes. :D But I managed to get this one.

My sweet girl! (I miss her, SO much. I don't miss the work. :D LOL!)

OK, I'm outta here. Have a wonderful day, and be sure to take the time to stamp something!!!!

I'm back! :)

So sorry I seemed to disappear - taking care of Naomi didn't seem to leave much in my daily allotment of brain cells. :D I'm glad you're still here!!!

I'm sharing another challenge scrapbook page with you today. :) I DO have some other things to share, so enjoy this today while I get photos where they need to be, etc. :) It's a bit busier than I normally design, but it was ICE! at Gaylord. So fun! :D

Have a wonderful day! Be sure and STAMP something today! Are you ready for Christmas? :D

I'm leavin', on a jet plane!

Happy Monday! Do you realize that three weeks from today is Christmas Eve?!? :D

I'm on my way to take care of this beautiful little doll for two weeks. This is another challenge layout, and I had a blast deciding which ones of my sister's shared photos to use. :D

I'm outta here. I just wanted you to know that, even with everything else on my mind, YOU were there, too! :D Have a wonderful day, and be sure to make the time to stamp SOMEthing!
