Ok. I think I am feeling better today, even though I'm not sure I'm happy with this card I made for Stamping 411's Sketch Challenge 120. I started with a cardbase of Old Olive, then, (here's the tricky part....) I took an old piece of cardstock and covered it with aluminum foil from my kitchen and ran it through the Big Shot with the Petals-a-Plenty folder. Cool, huh? Then I took some Riding Hood Red and stamped one of the Delightful Decorations stamps in Vers-a-Mark and heat embossed it with silver ep. I then added a sentiment from Teeny Tiny Wishes and punched it out with the word window punch and layered it on the Modern Label punch. Finally I added 3 silver brads and attached to my dry embossed piece, added some Riding Hood Red ribbon and here it is. Let me know what you think. I'm not sure what about it leaves me wanting, but.... Your comments may just help me figure it out! Until next time, remember, if I can stamp, you can, too!

Another Week......gone

That's how it seems today. Another week already gone! We started with the wonderful rent house to deal with, and then DD got sick. The doctor said it was the flu. About the time she started feeling better, I got sick. The doc says it ISN'T the flu, but boy have I felt lousy! I did manage to get enough energy together to get my next workshop's project samples done. It's a Holiday themed workshop.
I've decided on a "place setting favor" for Thanksgiving, a cute little basket for some Christmas goodies, and a frosty, spinning, Christmas card. The hostess had requested a spinner card with snowflakes.
I'm not sure who's original idea the basket was. I saw it here and the template is on the SU! demo site. Of course then I tweaked it a bit as I personally don't like templates. I changed the dimensions just enough to cut and score without a template, but I'm sure it is fabulous just the way it was!

Last week was very stressfull!!! Our renters told us they were moving 4 days before they moved. AKKKK!!! It wouldn't be so bad if the rent house didn't have a mortgage on it. Oh well. I know God is in control and I am NOT going to freak out.

I did get to take some time to stamp on Saturday. My mom invited some of her friends and neighbors to her senior community's club room to make some cards to donate to our soldiers.

Here are the cards we made. The 3rd one should look familiar since it is the same card I made here but with different colors. I wanted something a bit more cheery. The Ice Cream card was actually designed by my upline, Conne Stewart.
I think everyone had a great time and we made 23 cards to send to the soldiers to write home on. We also made 8 cards to thank a soldier for their service. I will get these off to Operation Write Home this week so they can be put to good use.
Thanks for stopping by. Untill next time!
