Mom's Birthday (posthumously)

Mom would've turned 71 yesterday. It's so hard to believe it's been 3 years since she passed. The new and growing challenges with my Dad, really makes me wish that Mom was here. She was much better at dealing with him than I am. (I guess that's what 40+ years of marriage does) Not enough ime to stamp much this past weekend. I will share my newest card soon (tomorrow). ;-)

April 2012 Cards

 These first 2 cards are made with stamps through a club.  Each week I get a new one.
Both are made using retired Stampin' Up! Designer Series Paper

 This image was drawn by a stamping friend I met through SCS, Nan.
I've had it for a long while, and decided to finally try it!!
(I was in a watercoloring mood, 
which you may notice since 4 of the 5 cards here are watercolored)
 I try to keep cards on hand.  It seems alot harder to make them "on demand"
One type I decided I needed a few more of, is cards for kids... viola... a rocket card

THANKS so much for stopping by.

Challenges (MARCH 2012)

 These funny ladies are a stamp I recently acquired.  
The layout is from a sketch on Splitcoaststampers.com
Keyword SC371
Colored with Copics.

This is a digital image i printed a long while back,
I created it for a SCS Sketch Challenge

 I made this card at our annual MINGLE stamping weekend
It was for a challenge to use a FAUX technique
(The photo is hard to see but the blue pieces are Faux Denim)

Stamping, just not blogging enough

I'm so embarrassed it's been almost a year since I updated my blog.
I have still been stamping - pretty often, considering work, family, et al.
I have just not been very good at posting them to my blog.

I really enjoy visiting other blogs, so I'm going to TRY to keep mine up better

Next weekend is our annual SCS Michigan Mingle weekend... a whole weekend of stamping, i'll have lots to share

This weekend I need to organize and pack.

Here are a few projects I've made lately
