Second Club Card

Welcome,

Below is the second card that we will make on Thursday at Stamp Club.  It's SUPER easy!  It's a good one for using DSP scraps too....which seem to pile up and then multiply.
Of course, inspiration for this card also came from Pinterest....I really don't have any original ideas :-)  just ones that have been modified from others.

Until next time, find some time for stamping!

Club Card

Welcome!

Below is one of the cards that we will be making on Thursday at Stamp Club.  Inspiration for this card came from....where else......Pinterest!  Here is a link to the blog from where the card was pinned.

It's a very simple and easy card...which comes in handy this time of year.  I love the Festival of Trees stamp set and matching punch....makes the easy look complicated.
Colors used were Basic Gray, Very Vanilla, Garden Green, Real Red, and Smoke Slate.   I added a bit of bling with 3 small rhinestones on the tree.

I'll be back to show you the other card we will be making as well....It's a card that is great for using some DSP scraps.

Until next time, find some time for stamping!

CATCH UP CARD

Greetings,

Today I'm sharing a sympathy card that I made a couple of months ago using the French Foliage stamp set along with the Thoughts and Prayers stamp set and the Woodgrain background stamp.  I still the French Foliage set even though Stampin' Up! retired it :-( 
That's all I have time for today....Thanks for visiting!

Until next time, find some time for stamping!

Addie's Christmas Wish....Which Could Be Her Last

This is came from Stampin' Up!'s website....

6-year-old girl asks for holiday cards for her last Christmas

The only thing six-year-old Addie Fausett has on her last Christmas list is cards—preferably the handmade kind.Addie Fausett, 6, of Fountain Green, Utah

Addie, who has a condition called diffuse atrophy, and her family were told by doctors that this Christmas would probably be her last. So when we saw the article on TODAY.com describing this family's wish for their little girl's last Christmas, we thought, who better to make this gift happen than amazing Stampin' Up! demonstrators and their customers?

If you would like to participate and support this family during a difficult time, please take a few minutes to tell all of your cardmaking friends, and then send handmade cards to:
Addie Lynn and Sisters, P.O. Box 162, Fountain Green, UT 84632
 
Please think about sending this sweet girl a Christmas card....it's an easy thing that will mean so much to her.

Maybe I'll send her this card......
Until next time, find some time for stamping!

Firing Up the Ole Blog Again

Gosh!  It has been almost 2 years since I last blogged.  Wow!  Time goes by so quickly.  I didn't think that I would miss blogging...but I have!  I've thought about getting back into the swing of things countless times...but when I would log on....my blog was a mess.  Being a fairly non-techy person, I felt like it was just too much work. So, I've decided to fight against my lazy tendencies and just do it!

So here we go....

Well...I'm still alive and well and still stamping.  I've thought about trying to go back and give you an update of the last 2 years, but that just seems too overwhelming.  So...I'm drawing a line in the sand and just going to start in the here and now.  Maybe as time goes on I'll throw in some "old" news.

Below is a card that we made at a recent Stamp Club gathering....I love the Wondrous Wreath stamp set and the matching Wonderful Wreath framelits that are in the Holiday catalog.
Pretty much any time there is a stamp set that matches a punch or die/framelit....it becomes one of my favorites...the reason being....the combination of a stamp set and a punch/die make it so easy to create quick and easy cards that look like you've spent a ton of time working on them.  Easy and quick is always good for me.

Well...not too bad for me first post.  I feel really clumsy blogging....but also I'm excited about getting back to some regular blogging.

Thanks for visiting!

Until next time, find some time for stamping!

A CRAZY JANUARY

So far, 2013 hasn't been very kind to us.  It started out great with a super fun New Year's Day game day at our home, but then that terrible cold that lasts FOREVER hit!  I was sick for what seemed like AGES and then each member of the family has had their share of it.....Madison has been home from school for the last 2 days.
 
THEN....our computer CRASHED!  So, we have been without a computer for about 10 days.  You don't realize how dependent you are on technology until you don't have it....but you also realize how much time you spend (or waste) sitting in front of that computer screen.  Thankfully my work's computer genius was able to fix it...so we are now up and running again.
 
I will post a stamping project in the next couple of days.
 
Until next time, find some time for stamping!!
Hugs, Cindy
