Wings of Joy

I placed my first order w/ Taylored Expressions on Sunday and it arrived on Wednesday. It sat in the building office for two days until I could sneak out of work early and race home to get it!! didn't really race home tonight as much as sit in traffic for almost 2 hours... but I did catch the office just before it closed!!
I came home and got right to work. I followed Sketch Challenge 249 for this card, along w/ items from the Very Merry Christmas Bundle. The Wings of Joy stamp set it so cute and I also got some Cosmo Cricket paper that I love!! And the buttons... oh, the buttons!!:)
Have a good weekend... lots of packing, moving and hopefully stamping here!!

Taylor's Challenge #84

This is a really simple care using SUPER FUN American Crafts paper... love it!! And also using Taylor's Sketch Challenge 84. I made a few cards last night so I can have some to post during the week.

Work has been so busy plus I am supervising an MSW student for the year... very fun but for now extra work!! The commute to and from work has also been even worse than usual and I am trying to pack before I move in Nov.... takes away my motivation to stamp after dinner and some form of exercise!! However, we all know what Saturday is... World CardMaking Day!! Will definitely make crafty time a priority on that day!!

A Halloween Hi

After making a winter card I thought I should get a move on Halloween cards!! This is also a stamp from SU "The More the Merrier". I used SU cardstock in Always Artichoke and Elegant Eggplant. I also used a scrap of DP that I had picked up at ACMoore... not sure where it's from. A couple of these guys are popped up and w/ the button it's not mail friendly! It's hard to see but I also used the Dots Cuttlebug folder on the Elegant Eggplant.

Jinxing Myself

As much I love this card, I'm nervous to post it... the fall weather here has been so beautiful... but it doesn't last long! Pretty soon we'll be seeing alot of these guys!! I've been dying to use this stamp from Stampin' Up. I paired it w/ some Minds Eye paper and this week'd SCS sketch. This picture came out the best though the angle is a little too crooked!!

The Sunday Blues

Ugh, it's almost 7pm and the Sunday blues start to set in! So, chasing them away by stamping before the gym! This is a thank you card but I made it w/o a particular purpose. I have had this paper from K&Co (I think) forever! I bought a pack when I first started stamping... the stamp is Studio G from Michael's dollar bin.

I have loved my 3 day weekend... could really get used to it:) Off to the gym!
