I'm Back ...

I checked the last time I posted and it was November 16, 2010. WOW ... it's a new year. How quickly time flies when you are busy! I took the month of December off of my SU business to concentrate on getting my handmade Christmas gifts finished and spend time with my family.

I have so much to tell you about the last month and a half but I first want to show you a few cards I've received and what I'm working on for my upcoming Stamp-a-Stack classes.

First is a "buddy swap" card I received from fellow demonstrator Trelvia. What an ingenious way to use the heart punches. The star is from the boho blooms punch. Great job, Trelvia.

Next is a Christmas card I received from another fellow demonstrator and good friend, Rita. Once again, she uses punches to create a beautiful "front door with wreath" Christmas card. I love it. When I told Rita how much I loved the card, she said she was busy making wreaths for Valentine's Day, Easter, etc. Maybe she'll send me one of those too!!

The last card I received was from my December buddy swapper -- Sarah. She used a new stamp set from the Occasions Mini -- Take a Spin. I wasn't sure I needed (more like wanted because I don't "need" any more stamps, LOL!) this stamp set but what a cute card to send a child or grandchild!

Okay, now for a sneak peak at this month's Stamp-a-Stack cards. It's Valentine's Day time and I enjoy all the LOVE! This first card was my buddy swap for December which I sent to my buddy, Carla. It actually is based on the card on page 43 of the Occasions Mini catalog. I used the single stamp "Be My Valentine." Check it out.

The next card uses the new "Valentine Defined" stamp set in the Occasions Mini. I CASEd the idea here. I changed it a little to use the supplies I had. It has a little sparkle to the hearts on the tree -- I used some Dazzling Diamonds.

Well, that's it for now. I'm back to my workshop tonight to create more cards for my classes. I'll share them soon.

Thanks for stopping by.
