Today I got to play along with the inspiration challenge on SCS! I hate to admit it but I am behind on my card making. Don't know how thats possible but I have been meaning to make cards for my downline to celebrate their 2 year demo anniversaries & I am ridiculously late with making my nephews birthday cards. Anyway 1 down 3 to go. Hope you're having a wonderful weekend!
Oh my gosh I can't beleive I went almost 3 weeks with out stamping! Big HUGS to my friend Kris that asked if I was ok since she noticed I have been MIA for so long. :) I wasn't sure how things would go when I finally did have a chance to play with my toys again. I wanted to start off slow but before I made this card I actually had to make my entries for Paper Crafts Stamping Royalty Contest! It all came together quite nicely & by the grace of God I made it to the post office 2 minutes before they closed. Entries had to be postmarked by 3/24. You would think I would learn my lesson & stop waiting until the very last minute but as my hubby says I do my best work under pressure. I guess we shall see. Anyway this card was inspired by a beautiful card I saw by Ann Schach & uses a brand new set called Strength & Hope that will be available in the upcoming mini catalog. I will be using this beautiful stamp set for my Customer Stamp n' Chat on April 1st. Now I've got to go make breakfast for the little people. Thanks for stopping by!
Our cruise was great! We went to Cabo San Lucas & Puerto Vallarta. It was nice to relax & have some time with my hubby. He works ALOT so it was amazing to have him all to myself for 10 days. The girls had a great time. I think their favorite part was swimming with the dolphins in Puerto Vallarta! I didn't know dolphins were so big! They can weigh up to 1,000 pounds! It was really amazing to see them up close. They are truly beautiful! I have a ton of unpacking & cleaning to do so I don't have time to play in my stamp room but I am sooo looking forward to it! But I will leave you with a few pictures from our trip:
I really love my Technique Tuesday gals & am honored that they spend an evening stamping with me every month. Its always much needed "adult time" for me. Anyway these were the 2 cards we did last night! Our technique was watercoloring so I showed them how to watercolor with markers & with watercolor crayons. Their cards came out absolutely beautiful! Well now I am off to get packin for our cruise to Mexico, Woo Hoo! Hope you have a blessed day!
