April Christmas

Well, I was reminded two days ago that I was supposed to be making 10 Christmas cards this month. OOOPS!! Usually, I have a plan. The plan almost ALWAYS is stealing someone else's design. LOL. I didn't have a plan. So, I started thinking and came up with this idea. I'm not sure if it's inherently a flawed card or if it's so far out of my comfort zone that it's confusing me. I NEVER use all white (my s/bing motto always was "fear the white space") and I have only not used layers ONCE before. So, if you have an opinion on it, I'd love to hear it.

Pink & Brown Swap

This is for Christies's Pink & Brown cards swap. I'm not sure how much I like it. It looks better IRL (It's very hard to take pics of a TRP what w/glare and trying to put something behind it so it even shows up!) I went ahead & made 6 of these but, I may use them for something else. I guess I'll have to think on it....

More Birthday

I'm LOVING transparencies and Stazon. I'm wondering how I got along w/o Stazon for so long. I really, really dig it! I like the Opaque better 'cause the pads aren't quite as wet. When stamping on transparencies (or TRPs as I call them. It's too long a word!!), drier is definitely better!!

This was made w/my coolio Hero Arts cupcake stamps. I just love these cupcakes. Makes me hungry everytime I use them.

Imperfect Birthday?

I "stole" this idea from someone but, of course, I don't remeber who. Anyway, it didn't turn out as good as I wanted it. I used the stamp-a-ma-jig on it but, it didn't help! As a stamper, would you be disappointed to receive this less than perfect image? Of the 6 I made (just wanted to have some ready for family & friends) about 2 are "good enough". Whacha think?

Horror of horrors!

Even worse than the 5.4 earthquake that hit us Friday morning, the Stamp-Shack, my home on the web, my connection to my buddies, my LIFELINE is down!!! Oh, the humanity!!! In case there are an of my SS buddies that read this blog, please, please, please come and join us at the Yahoo group Angie set up for us last time the Shack went bye-bye!

We're trying to keep it together as best we can there. We can post to each other & even show pictures. I miss you all and hope we can weather this together!!! I'm guessing this is down until Sherry either tries to check the shack from the road or until she returns home.

Hugs & kisses to y'all!!
