A break from Christmas…

It’s not that I wanted to stray from my Christmas parade of card ideas… I’ve actually been stamping up a storm of new cards for next week’s card class — but I’ve been so busy stamping (well, and working — dang job always gets in the way!) that I haven’t had time to take photos of my new creations and upload them! Tomorrow. I promise! Anyway, today I thought I’d show you this cutie, which was actually a card design from one of my stamp-a-stacks this summer. It uses one of my favorite sets Chic Boutique (I have to pull that out again — Oh wait — we’re on Christmas!!! lol) I wanted to have a sewn looking so I ruffled the ribbon along the card using sticky strip (this was before I had my adventures in sewing so now I could probably really sew it!) Well, that’s probably all for today — it was a busy day as it was Stampin’ Up’s first Book-A-Thon event. I booked two workshops today and I’m so excited to share SU with some new friends! See you tomorrow….

Wow… it’s been a long time!

Hi there! Remember me? I apologize for being so out of touch lately. Do you ever find that once you get out of the routine of something it is so hard to get back into it? Well, that is what happened here with the little blog. I kept saying “I’m going to update, I’m going to update,” but it just never happened. So even though I don’t have anything really new to share with you today, I decided to post anyway. This card is actually one I made months ago. Nothing too spectacular, but I think it came out cute. I was playing with the Chic Boutique stamp set — too cute. I do have lots of news for you, though. As you know we are now into the six month of the year (crazy, huh?) and that means the Stampin’ Up last chance list is out. You can check it out here. You have until June 30 to get any of the stamps sets off this list and then they are gone forever. There are also last chance lists for the decor elements and for retiring accessories. You can see those here and here. Don’t panic with those lists
