Blog is Moving

I have decided to move my blog. Stampin' Up has provided demonstrators with a web site ( It has recently been updated to give us the capability of having a blog on that web site. Specifically you will find it by going to and pointing your mouse on About Me. One of the sections that appears will be My Stampin' Blog.

You can link directly to my new blog by bookmarking this:

Leave me a comment there and let me know that you found me!

It has been a very "taxing" evening. I have finally gotten all my tax papers together and can now go to the tax preparer.

I had a stamp camp this past weekend and we made several cards. This is a card I CASEd from Debbie Naylor. I just love the card. I like the two-color card. Red and white is always a favorite.

Hope you enjoy!

Hello everyone. I have a dear friend who is moving away to live with her grandson and his family. Tonight I'm going through my cards and making cards to give to her as a gift. She'll still want to send all kinds of cards so I think it will be a gift she can use. Someone else is picking up stamps for her.

So, I have nothing to post. I just looked to see if I could find a picture of something to post. I do have some cards I need to take pictures of, but I haven't done so yet. I did find this. This is my signature post that I put on the end of my email messages. I made it using Stampin' Up's My Digital Studio.

Bright Card

The snow is finally starting to melt; however, winter is not over yet. I decided I needed to make some brighter cards. I found some online that were done by Patsy Waggoner so I CASEd several of hers. This is just one. I'll post another one tomorrow.

Speaking of tomorrow, I am presenting how to make the rag bag (see my post Monday Feb 8). My upline Robin is having a team meeting. I'm going to show the attending demonstrators how to make the rag bag. I'll also show them how to make the flower that it in Tuesday's post.

Just think, if you were a part of our team and live in this area, you could be attending and enjoying time with friends stamping and crafting.

Fabric Flower

This picture is a fabric flower I made using the Big Shot from Stampin' Up! There is only a little bit of sewing once the flower petals are in position. I think if I put it in my little bag for the washer it might look nice, too. If I did that it would ruffle up the edges a little.

A Thought Away

Hello everyone. I did not realize that my last post was Wednesday last week. Goodness. Since last Wednesday, I have been to North Myrtle Beach and back. I have a townhouse in NMB and wanted to get out of VA for a day or two. My friend Doris rode along and I left her at her parents' house in NMB, and my friend Mikaela went along also and stayed with me. We thought we would be getting away from the snow; however, the joke was on us. It snowed in South Carolina Friday night! There was snow on the palm trees and the beach! Mikaela took pictures and as soon as she uploads them, I'll put a couple here.

In the meantime, here is a card that I CASEd from one I got at Leadership. I do not know who I swapped with for this one and there was no name on the back. I layered it and made it mine. I think it turned out nicely.

(By the way, it has started snowing again here in VA this afternoon.)
