Fundraiser Project

A friend's daughter is seriously ill and they are having a fundraiser for her this weekend. I made this set of 6 cards (2 of each design) and card portfolio today to donate to the silent auction.

Stamps are from {ippity} by Unity. Papers, ribbons and ink are from Stampin' Up!

Don't Fall off Your Chairs...I'm posting!

It's hard to believe, but I'm actually here posting. I made a couple cards today that I'd like to share. My cleaning lady was here this morning and since our weather was so bad I decided to go to the basement, organize my stamping space a little and make a couple cards I needed to send. I hope you enjoy them.
Supplies: Stampin' Up! cardstock, stamps (Cheep Talk) and inks; Cosmo Cricket Pixie-Licious 6 x 6 Mini Deck Paper Pad, waxed linen thread.

On Hiatus/Changes Coming

I've been on a self-induced hiatus. We finally got the basement (where my "crap room" is) recarpeted and painted. The walls are now a fresh green called Song of Summer and the carpet is clean and nice with a cushy pad underneath - I can even go down in stocking feet or barefoot if I so choose! Now I'm just waiting for Stan to finish the trim in the bedroom so we can get that room set up, then he can get the trim attached in my little crafting corner so I can get creative again...and hopefully we can enjoy our basement family room this summer. Ultimately I want to sell this house and buy a single-level home, but it may take me a while to convince Stan that's what's best for me/us! This house doesn't hold great happiness or memories for me; I think it's time to move on.

In the next couple weeks I will be posting some pictures of our finished space and I also hope to have an announcement here on my blog. Stay tuned...

Finally made some cards

I've been in a slump lately. I got a new Chemo Angels assignment and needed a card to send with my introductory letter. Fortunately, my new Stampin' Up Simply Scrappin pack came just the other day, so it was easy to make a couple quick cards with the stickers and cardstock that came with it. The sentiment is a Hero Arts stamp. It didn't take long to whip up these 2 cards. I love the bright colors in this Petal Party kit.

For a Special Patient

This is one of the cards I made at the retreat. It's for my Chemo Angels "buddy," who also happens to be a cardmaker like myself. I hope she likes it. Tree stamp is from Close to My heart. Owl and words are from a Clear Dollar Stamps set. Ribbon is from Stampin' Up.

I Met Heidi Swapp!

This past weekend I attended a papercrafting retreat locally. Heidi Swapp came to teach classes and I was lucky enough to take 2 of them. She is such an inspirational speaker and we all enjoyed hearing what she had to say, learning from her, and getting to know her. Thanks, Heidi! And thanks, Jeanie, for making it all happen!
