I was doing soooooooooo well....

And I was... I admit, posting every day. Getting some time in my stamp room... Yet... then it was yesterday and there was no posting... why? you may ask. Becuase the boys had to go to the vet for teeth cleanings. So what? That was Tuesday. Ah, yes... But look what happened Tuesday night...
Everyone just wanted to be held by their mommy... Ever felt that way? Been sick and wanted your mommy to hold you. That's the only time Bailey will snuggle for more than a couple of minutes.... Now Mason, he could sit there all night and have you snuggle with him. :)

So yes, I was snuggling my boys... Rescheduled my appointment with Darlene -- THANKS DAR!-- until yesterday.. so there was no stamping yesterday either...

BUt there's hope! I'm working on another explosion box for my friend Ferrah! and Lu asked for some instructions, so instead of having to scour the internet, I'll post them here for you this weekend, when I get a chance, Lu. Your wish is my command!!!!

It'll be a busy weekend -- I've got a first responder recert ALL weekend long, so I'll be pretty busy, but i'll find some time! Because you're important!

Guest Stamping Tuesday

Todays entry was created by my friend Tanya. Tanya came over, desperate for some assistance to make 3 baby cards and a birthday card for her little cousin who was about to turn 8. We went through my stamps and some old swaps, and then I suggested this idea... Tanya loved it! :) So off we went to figure them out together :) Aren't they adorable?

Tanya went to town with the color coach and came up with this one! I love it, Tanya! You did an awesome job! :)

I hope Tanya and I have inspired you to dust off your stamps and get going.

Happy Stamping!

Monday Madness

Hi! When the occassions mini came out, there were two stamp sets I immediately gravitated to! :) The first one is Build a Cupcake! It's an adorable stamp set and matching punch. I'm always a little reluctant to purchase something in the Occasions mini because they usually don't continue on. My hope is that Stampin' Up will carry these two over because they have designed punches to make the stamps and accessories! So, here's the first one -- i made a bunch of these 3x3 cards to help market my business.
This next card is a spinner card -- i used to love games that had a spinner attached. Good times!!! :)

So that's it for today! At home sick with a cold! :( The boys are going to the dentist tomorrow to have their teeth cleaned... it should be an intersesting day! :)

Valentines Cards

Well, it's a little late, but I did do some stamping in the month of February. This is what I gave my parents for Valentine's Day. I got the idea from my friend Alanna. This is called an explosion box, complete with a lid and bow. I love it! :)

My sister helped me find some pictures of us for the inside of the box. I definitely need to start taking more pictures of everybody!This is the card I gave my parents.... Cute huh? I love that white organza ribbon. And the red glitter paper was AWESOME! I made this one for some friends and my coworkers. That little owl is stinkin' cute! :)I'll end with the reason it took me a month to post these pics. I'd like to introduce to the newest member of my pack! This is Mason! Love that little guy. We're just fostering him right now, but he is very quickly becoming a very important member of our family. Bailey and Mason are getting along really well, and both are very good for each other. The barking is at a minimum and the boys are starting to play with each other! :) Mason is on the left, Bailey's on the right. We have to put different colour leashes on them, because if you look quick, you can't tell them apart! :)

Aren't they precious?!?! Well, better run and stamp some more! :)
Have a fabulous day!

New favorite Stamp Set

Ok, get out your Visa! You WANT this stamp set! If you don't have it yet, you're totally missing out. Lea, you might say, I have enough stamps and punches, do I really WANT another! Yes, yes you do! I love it! And it was sooooo quick to make a card, which always makes ME happy. All right, all right, which one, you might ask?....

Wait for it!....

Build a Blosson stamp set and punch!!!! :)

REALLY? Yes, really! I mean, really? Yes reallly! I know, I know what you're thinking! :) I wasn't a big fan of it either when I first saw it in the Occasions mini. Actually, I skipped over it a couple of times! It's soooooooo sad! :) But, I went to stamp club and saw it and what it can do and it went to the top of my purchase list.

So here are a couple of samples! Here's what all the fuss is about!This first one is full of fabulous Stampin' Up products. Melon Mambo, Wild Wasabi, and Pacific Point ink, some Daffodil Delight card stock and Sale-A-Bration ribbon and stamps! Life is grand! :)

The next one, inspired by my favorite sideline, Kristyne Brandt, uses perfect plum ink to make the flower and the brad is from the Ocassions mini as well. Whisper white organza ribbon, versa mark and some white detail embossing powder finished it off. Please note the little paw in the corner! Gotta love that westie! :) That's bailey trying to get into the picture! Love the design, Kris -- thanks for helping me get my mojo back! :D

There's lots of postings on the horizon :) I'm excited! How about you? Now before i say goodbye, I need to tell you to click on the shop now link and go order that build a blosson stamp set and punch! You won't regret it! You can order right from my website and it will ship to your house! You don't know what happiness can be until you see the brown truck and the guy in the brown uniform bringing you a stampin' up box! :)

Questions, just let me know!
