Baroque Motif cards

Well, I'm a little behind getting these posted but thought I'd share with you some cards I stamped a week ago. I finally got out Baroque Motif and did some playing with it. You'll have to let me know what you think!

Retired Stamp Sets for Sale!!!

Okay, everyone. I am going to be moving in a few months and we were almost overweight this move so I promised my husband I would do my best to get rid of some of my retired stamp sets before we move again and, so far, I've failed!! In order to live up to my end of what I said, I am placing my stamp sets on here for you to view and, hopefully, PURCHASE!! I have marked them down significantly and if you find one you're interested in but aren't sure about the price, ask me - I may be willing to negotiate! Some of them are new never been mounted, some are mounted but never used and then some others are a little more used and loved! So, click here to see pictures and prices. Again, if you have any questions about any of them, please contact me! There is a total of 55 items so make sure you look through the whole list. If there are multiple sets you are interested in, I am willing to combine for shipping as well as cut a possible deal. So, this is a great opportunity to get some great sets at GREAT PRICES!!! Happy Shopping!!!!!!!!

Our Christmas Card

This may not be the greatest picture of my card, but it's the best I could do for now. This was our family Christmas card this year. I was going for simple. I'm pleased with the way it turned out just feel bad that I didn't get all of them made that I wanted to! I still technically have more I want to make to send - I may change the tree to something else and put a different greeting! Ah, well!

Christmas Goodies for Hubby's CoWorkers

I have a great and easy recipe for Peanut Brittle and Brian wanted me to make some for his co-workers but I didn't want to have to make a HUGE amount of it to fill tins so I opted to make cello bags and fill them. I'm pleased with the way they turned out. I totally CASE'd the topper from a card sample my friend and downline, Amy, gave me - boy was I ever grateful because I sure didn't have time to sit and come up with something totally original. So THANK YOU, Amy!

Now I've Gone and Done it!

Well, now that I've created a blog to share all of my stampin' stuff I'm hoping it's going to motivate me to actually get in my stampin' room and STAMP!! I have created this site for a couple of reasons:
  1. I love to read other stampin' blogs for ideas so I thought it only fair to share my own - or at least my takes on other projects I've seen.
  2. I'm hoping to actually be able to update customers on classes and ideas once I finally get things rolling again.
  3. To motivate others into stamping - if I can do it, so can YOU!!!

So, I hope you enjoy and leave comments! I love to hear new ideas!!
