Cards

I told you the cleanliness would help with my stamping art! Well, for one it did. Here's an anniversary card for my sister and her husband. It's their anniversary next week -- 17 years! Congratulations Shauna and Rino!This next card is my Christmas card I designed this year. I made about 40 of them... :P The coloring was annoying, but I tuned into a Christmas movie and it went pretty quick. Why are you just seeing this now? Because I finally got around to finding out the addresses of the people I didn't see over the holidays, or forgot to give them their cards and contacted them today. I will be mailng their cards tomorrow.... We'll just blame it on my Ukrainian heritage. Christmas is a few weeks later, and this year, it just came up up waaaaaaaaaaaaeaaaaaay too fast. I didn't have the benefit of being in a PCH to keep me on top of everything, like in previous years..

The girls at stamp club were very intrigued by how i did just the area around so i could stamp on the inside. I promised I would show them next time we meet! Yay project! :)

Have a fabulous week

I'm Addicted to Neat!

What's Neat, you may ask? A tv program on Global. Hellen Buttigieg is the host and she takes messy rooms and purges and organizes that room. It's very motivating, especially when cleaning up the bedroom and the stamp room are high on the to do list. Yesterday, I finally tackled the stamp room. First I watched a few episodes of Neat, to get me motivated and in the mood, and then I tackled it. I didn't take a picture of the before, but here's the end result. :)
Look at all the workspace!!! There is going to be some fancy schmancy cards made at this workspace. I even spray painted a fresh coat of white paint on the table. Poor Bailey -- he was sneezing lots from the fumes! The good news is I got it done and it looks fabulous!
And here are my stamps all housed in a cabinet so I can shut the door and not be distracted by them.

Ahh.... I can breathe a little easier in this room now :)
Have a fabulous day! And if you get a chance, Watch Hellen on Neat at 7AM weekdays on Global. I tape it myself and then can watch it after work :)

Baby Card

I was involved in a punch swap, and I got this idea from my upline's card! Sooo cute! This is my rendition of it. I made it for my one of my staff member, who is very pregnant right now. I was supposed to do this a few months ago, but at least I finally got it done! Yay!

Stamp club tomorrow -- I wonder what Cheryl has in store for us...

Til the next time
Love Lea

Happy New Year -- Resolution FAILED!

Hello! Happy New Year. I made one of my resolutions this year to blog here every single day. Alas, today is January 2, 2011 and I missed yesterday's post. Already failed. So, in attempt to redeem myself, because alas, I'm not perfect :O, I will post twice today. And not one after another. :) So, feel blessed to hear from me twice today. My goal is 365 posts this year.... Wish me luck!

My post from yesterday was supposed to be this card. I had it all planned out. But there just wasn't enough hours in the day -- there were eight loads of laundry, a not-so-great date (who, by the way, hasn't texted me today yet -- phew!) and a marathon of Rabbids! Thanks for introducing me to the game, Kate. I'm addicted! LOL Anyways, here's the card!

And the inside.... If you have ever seen my stamping, this is pretty basic as cards roll... But it is for a contest for free stamps (!) for Stampin' Up - Stampin' Connection and I was only allowed to use stuff that came with my starter kit. And I bought the mini starter kit, so I didn't have a lot of the fun stuff! Actually, I didn't choose this stamp set with my kit, as I already had it, but it is one of the one's that comes with this kit, so I'm thinking it'll be okay. :)

If not, oh well. At least I tried.

On the home front, I've been on a few dates over the past month. And I'm still looking for Mr. Right for Me... But the more dates I go on, the more clear the vision of the man for me becomes.

Anywyas, I should run! I'll see you later tonight with a SUPER cute card for one of my former staff, who's having a baby in the next few weeks! :)

Always,
Love Lea
