Lazy Day…

I was so excited that the weathermen were predicting upwards of 6o degree weather today as I knew I had the day off! So, I was a little disappointed when I saw the fog and rainy weather today. But I always try to find a positive spin on everything lately so… I’ve been stamping all day! 🙂 I’m actually working (very last minute) on my Artisian Award entry and in between coming up with some projects for my Stamp Club this week. I also got to have a 2 hour nap today, which I’ve said before, always feels rebellious to me on a weekday afternoon 🙂 Anyway, this card is using the Create a Cupcake stamp said and punch. I honestly can’t remember if I cased this layout or not… I think I might have so if it looks familiar please let me know and I will absolutely include you as my inspiration! I’m usually really good about marking whether an idea was mine or “borrowed” from someone else — and this one… I just can’t remember and I didn’t write it down! I’m amazed at how old I’m feeling these days 🙁 I used this card at a workshop

Grrrr….

I honestly don’t mean to keep going MIA on you! It’s really nothing personal! I am truly tired of this winter. I know I shouldn’t be complaining as it is a really trivial issue, but it just has been kicking my butt! Between just the cold, gray days and the dumb virus I got over the last week, I just don’t feel like I can catch up and March is a busy, busy month! So if you are wondering where I went to last week… well I was curled up on the couch with a blankie pretty much permanently for the entire last half of last week. No stamping. No eating. No talking. No sleeping! I spent the last two rainy days holed up in my stamp room to catch up — and I think I did…. at least for now. But this is going to be a super busy week with Stamp Club and three workshops still to go! (Not that I’m complaining!) So needless to say not a lot to show you. I will hopefully have some cards to show you from my card class last night when I get them uploaded. In the meantime, let me show

New toys…

Howdy, friends! Happy Sunday to you… although it is almost over now. I had a super long “to do” list today, but I’m trying to be better about the old blog-o (I know I’ve said that before… but I’m trying!) Today I was actually working on some Christmas gifts… including a My Digital Studio digital scrapbook for my brother’s race at Seekonk Speedway earlier this year… among other things. The card I’m featuring today is actually one from the three-part Holiday Card Classes I held for the past three months. I like how this one has a monotone feel except for the one pop of red. I used Contempo Christmas stamp set, Sanded background stamp, Woodland Walk DSP, the ornament punch and Wild Wasabi as the green. Now on to the title of this post… Guess what I got on Friday? I got a nice big box of brand new products from the upcoming Ocassion Mini Catalog! I got a ton of fun products to play with to prepare for some classes and events in January. You’ll definitely want to keep an eye on the blog for the next few weeks as I share a few sneak peeks of the
