3-1-10 Swap Card

Ok... so what do you think? You can't see it, but the white c/s layer in the back actually has the small dots from SU's impressions plate. The paper is SU Always Artichoke, with the SU Butterfly sizzlet. The tree, however is from The Angel Co.

WoW!! 3-days of stamping!!!

Oh my goodness... what can I say? I had the best week last week!!! Rich went to North Carolina, and you know what that means?? GIRL TIME!!! HAHAHAHHA!!! Because of the blizzard, our monthly stamp club with April was postponed, and so was our all occasion card class. Sooo... Wednesday and Thursday was stamping at my house, and Friday was club with Pam at Lynn's house. Lynn cleaned up!!! I don't think I've ever seen ANYONE ever have an $800 workshop!!! Way to go Lynn!!!

Here are the cards we made at April's All Occasion class. If you like the cards, you can contact April at

Card #1;
Card #2.. I really like this set!!!

Card #3... LOVE IT!!! And I have the set... YEAH!! now i just need the punch and the diamond dust or whatever this glittery stuff is called...
Card #4...

Card #5. This is also called the "Kissing" technique. You take a solid image stamp and stamp in a color. Then you take another stamp in a darker color, and stamp it on the solid image stamp. This butterfly is what it turns out to look like...

This is April's Technique Club. Instead of a 'card' club, we asked for a technique. We do 2 cards with a technique and one with a fun fold. This is called Colored Dew Drops. She made the droplets. SOOO Cool!! And another great thing to use with your re-inkers.

This is called "Emerging Color"

This is called a "Soot" Card. HAHAHAH.. you should have seen all of us holding these over burning candles to get the soot on the card. A few of ours caught on fire... good thing we had everything contained.

And these we made at Pam's stamp club. These are great cards!!! All with the new Mini-Catalog stamp sets. LOVE THEM!!! If you like these cards and want to find out more, contact Pam at Not only were these done with the new CLEAR stamps SU sells... but also all of the in-colors. How great is this?!?!?
And Tess... everyone loves her...

And my husband loved the M&M's that were in here...

What a great time I had with my friends!!!!

Cards for Delia

It warms my heart to see people like Dustin Pike,, an artist, entrepeneur, family man, who is quite busy, that takes the time to do things in life that make a difference in someone elses life.

Dustin posted on his blog,, a request to send a little girl a card shower. And he's offering free, yes.... FREE digi's. Dustin... thank you so much for this opportunity to do something for someone else, and doing something I love, stamping. Delia... I hope you like these... they will be in your hands soon. (God willing this snow will ever stop so I can get to the mailbox).

God Bless you Delia. My heart and prayers are with you. Stay strong!!

Whoops! Forgot Shawna's card!!!

I made this card last night for a friend... who is having knee surgery. This is my 2nd time using my nesties, and I love paisley. You can't see it very well, but the apricot paper has paisley from a texture plate, and the SU background paper has paisley, as does the bashful blue small paisly. I ran that and the pink through the SU daisy embossing folder. It's quite adorable.

And how could I forget Shawna's card?!?!? This is Changito hanging onto this fella's leg... I laugh every time I see this!!!! Great card Shawna!!!
