Hello blog family......just wanted to check in and let you know I'm still kickin'. 2013 has not been kind to a whole lot of people in my little circle. I've just been a little overwhelmed lately, and not too stampy....well, that's not quite true....I've made cards that I'd rather not share since the people who received them are going through some really tough stuff that doesn't need to be public. All very cryptic, no? My immediate family is extended and church families are going through some really really hard stuff :( Best thing I can offer is prayer~ and if you want to lift them up as well, that would be much appreciated! We are who we are because of Jesus

time flies :)

I made this for our "little" neighbor girl who is celebrating her *golden* birthday this year...hard to believe she's grown up so quickly. Stamp is SU, and I used stencils from Oriental Trading Co. to make the numbers :) Easy peasy. And I'll fix that ribbon loop before I give it to her :) PS~I'm a goober...she won't be 13 until NEXT year!

here's the proof :)

Obviously I have waaaay too much free time on my hands :) I saw this idea on Pinterest and just KNEW I'd have to copy it for myself! I am a *rainbowey* kinda girl though( as in...God's Promises are new each day), so I did mine with colors instead of white. The smaller squares are samples of texture plates, and the bigger circles are embossing folders. I am just having fun organizing some things in the stamp room office :)

ok. i'll get with the program now :)

I really have issues with thinking ahead. but I see everyone online making these beautiful Valentines and figure I'd better get with it too :) So I made this card for the *Sassy Stampers* card club I go to~ each person makes a 'kit' for everyone, so you go home with lots of fun cards!Plus, those gals are a hoot :) Dug deep into the scrap drawers for all the papers, and the stamps are Heart & Soul. I've been *purging* my stamp room closet....going through old magazines ( like....from 1999+ !) keeping the card samples I like, and ditching the rest with friends or Goodwill. Feels kinda nice. Whatever will I DO with all that extra room? YOU fill in the blank: buy more _____! Heh Heh. That's all I know for now :) ><>
