Hi Stampers!

I've been putting off writing about this because it makes me so sad to think about.....but I thought it was time. At the beginning of April we went on vacation for Easter break and came back to learn that Bones, the kitty that we had nursed with a bottle, had been hit by a car and died. Very very sad for all of us.

Here is picture of him when he was sooo small......
Here's when he was a bit bigger......
And here's a picture of him a couple of weeks or so before we left on vacation.....
He was a great cat and will be missed greatly!!!!

Hi Stampers!

On Saturday, the daughter of our dear friends is getting married....and so this evening I sat down and made her a quick card. Her tastes are simple but elegant and so I wanted to make a card that was also simple and elegant....and here is what I came up with....
I started by stamping the big swirl from the Baroque Motifs stamp set with black on a half sheet of white....then I covered the entire front of the card with a quarter sheet of vellum (that is why the edges of the card look blurry). Then all I did was take a small piece of white cardstock and ran it through the Big Shot using an embossing folder and layered that with a piece of black cardstock. I put a scrap of white organza ribbon with a knot around the entire thing and attached it to the vellum with dimensionals. The sentiment is from the Teeny Tiny Wishes set.....stamped on white with black ink, punched with the large oval and layered on black cardstock that was punched with the scallop oval. EASY PEASY!!!

It must admit that it looks much better in real life. One of these days, I might have to cash in my white box that I take pictures in for something a wee bit better....but it works for now.

Well....I need to clean up my stuff and get to bed. I hope you are having a good week.....and hopefully tomorrow or Friday I can post my stamp clubs' swap cards.

Until next time, find some time for stamping!!

Hi Stampers!! Thanks for stopping by for a visit.

Today, I finished making my card that I will be swapping at my monthly stamp club this coming Monday evening. We decided on a spring theme....and since the weather has been so fantastic lately, it seemed just perfect. I decided to make mine a Mother's Day card.....since that is coming up next month.

The card that I chose to do is cased (copied) from another SU demonstrator named Laurie Zoellmer. I found her card posted on Stampin' Connection...which is a demonstrator only website.....and I loved it. I changed the colors....but other than that the card is pretty much the same as hers. Thanks Laurie for such a great card!!!

The base of the card is Lovely Lilac, and the green layer is Kiwi Kiss (I just LOVE that color!!). I stamped the small flowers with Lovely Lilac and the large flower with Elegant Eggplant. The vine and sentiment are stamped with Kiwi Kiss.
The Kiwi Kiss liner is punched with the pinking hearts border punch that is in the Occasions Mini....I didn't care for this punch at first....but now I LOVE it!!! You never can have too many punches :-)

Well...that's it for me today. I will post pictures of all the gals' swaps after our Monday club meeting.

Until next time, find some time for stamping!!!
