Well, it's been a while.

Life has been busy and it is not slowing down.  But, I am back to stamping and have lots of workshops and some time off to do what I love. Stamp!!!  So, I just need to dust off the camera and post some pictures of some of the cards I have been working on and share some of the great times with wonderful friends who love to stamp as much as I do.

Happy Stampin' Everyone

Whitley's Banner

This is the banner I made Whitley.  She loved it.  It is in front of a mirror, so it was hard to get the photo.  Used Frightful Sight paper and lots of riboon and chipboard.

Just a few cards

These are a few of the cards that I shared with the ladies at Alyece Garrett's home on Sunday.  We had a great time.  I used the designer paper that is in the new Holiday Mini Catalog, Spice Cake and Holly Berry Bouquet.  So pretty.  The stamp sets were Gently Falling, Pines and Poinsettias, Always Thankful, and Dasher.   I just love stamping.
