A quick post today. I was very happy when the First Frost stamp set was carried over from the Holiday Catalog! Now all we need to do is hope it is carried over into the next Annual Catalog. This set is beautiful and so versatile! I made Christmas Cards with it this past holiday season. The card I’m sharing today can be used as a birthday or wedding card. I got the idea for this color combination from another card I saw on Pintrist. I really should make note of the individuals I get ideas from, but I don’t. One of my shortcomings. Oh, well. It’s hard to be perfect all of the time. 🙂 The other stamp set I used is Stitched All Around. It’s funny, because I wasn’t going to get this set or the Stitched Label Framelits, but when my good friend told me she accidentally ordered it twice, I decided to purchase it from her. I’m glad I did. The framelits are beautiful and the sentiments on the stamp set are great.
I hope you like the card.
Until next time…

It’s another snowy and frigid day here in Colorado Springs, so I decided to do a quick post of the cards we made at my January stamp club. We do four cards each month and since Sale-a-bration is in full swing, we used two sets from that catalog; Home to Roost and Lasting Lilly. I think both are pretty awesome sets. And, if you know me, the Home to Roost set was the first one I got! I used the Home to Roost example in the SAB catalog for my inspiration. The inspiration for the sympathy card came from a sample I saw at On Stage in Orlando. I don’t know where I got the inspiration for the other two. I don’t remember. Here they are!
Remember, with every $50.00 purchase you make from either the Annual or Occasions Catalogs you earn a free item from the Sale-a-braton catalog. So Home to Roost and Lasting Lilly can be yours too!
If you have any questions about any of these cards, please feel free to contact me. Until next time…

Happy New Year!
A week ago, our new Occasions Catalog went active along with this year’s Sale-a-bration. That’s me…usually a day late and a dollar short! You don’t know what Sale-a-bration is? Well, let me tell you…for every $50.00 you spend in regular product from any of our active catalogs, you can get an item in our Sale-a-bration catalog FREE! Now that’s a deal, if you ask me.
You say you don’t have TIME to stamp? Well the cards I’m sharing today took me less than thirty minutes…NOT EACH…but for ALL THREE! That’s right, they are simple but still beautiful. it just goes to show you don’t have to spend a lot of money to make a nice card and you don’t have to have all day to create one; just thirty minutes and you can make three!
The first two cards are for Valentine’s Day and are made with sets that are in the current Occasions Catalog. The last card is made with a set that I got for free which is in Sale-a-bration. And if you know me, if there is a rooster set available, it is the first one I will choose because I am a chicken lover! In October my sister took a count of how many rooster/chickens I have in my home in some form or another and I think she stopped counting at around 97. I know…it’s a sickness.
So here are the cards that I created with plain white paper, ink and a stamp set. Hope you like them.

Everywhere we go”…stores are putting up their Christmas displays. I’m not a big fan of this practice. I would prefer to celebrate the holidays in the order in which they appear on the calendar…Halloween/All St.’s Day, Thanksgiving, then Christmas. But I also realize that if I didn’t do my Christmas card class early in the month of November, most people wouldn’t be able to attend and they wouldn’t have their cards ready to go out in the mail over Thanksgiving weekend. That’s when I usually do my Christmas decorating and card writing.
Now some people have given up on the tradition of holiday card writing and I say…Shame on them! There is nothing more special than getting a card from a loved one, even if it has been a year since you last connected.
I know I haven’t been around for a while. It has been a very busy time for me these last few months. In September, I visited my daughter and grand-daughter in Virginia Beach for two weeks. A few weeks after returning, my sister and brother-in-law visited and we did a road trip for two weeks to California mainly to visit Yosemite National Park, but we made a ton of other stops along the way. And finally, On Stage Live in Orlando this pas week.
I hosted my annual Christmas Card Stamp-a-stack this past November 3rd a few days before heading out to On Stage Live in Orlando, Florida and I am just now able to share them with you. Many of the sets I used were from the Annual Catalog so they are repeats from last year. Two were special offers and are no longer available. (Sorry…not sorry! 🙂 And one is brand new from this year’s Holiday Catalog…the reindeer card…which was CASED from the catalog.
Hope you enjoy them. I will have more to share very soon. Until then…
