I've been a busy little bee!
Recently I recived the orders that I'd been waiting for! Yay! The Whiff of Joy stamps I ordered came lightening fast! Faster than anything I've ordered from the US! I bought Melinda blowing kisses and some grassy knoll for her to stand on. So just for the sake of putting rubber to ink, I whipped up a little card with Melinda on it. Now, its not fancy, I'll warn you, I just wanted to break her in....
I also finally got to finishing up my cards for OhioMary's swap on SCS. I JUST finished putting them all in thier little plastic envelopes & they'll be postal next week! The cards are winter themed & must include a warm recipe for a soup or stew. I found a recipe online for a Portabello Mushrom Stew. I'm sure I'm going to try it out this winter, it just sounds so yummy!
I used chocolate chip and tempting turquoise cardstock from SU! and the Snow Burst set. I stamped with Versamark; chocolate chip and yes, even some Baja blue. The ribbon is some chocolate satin ribbon, and tempting turquoise ribbon from SU! on the recipe.
I'm on a bit of a coloring and Christmas Card kick for the last couple of days. And yep, I've been whipping up some holiday cards already! I love this new cocktail elf stamp I got from Whipper Snapper.... and thought I'd make something humorous. So here it is.
Hopefully the recipients of this card will have a good laugh!
I made two, opposite colors, as you can see. Green Galore, and Riding Hood red from SU! and I used a selection of square, circle and scallop punches, all from Stamin' Up.
One last thing! here's what my stamp space looks like.... yes, all i have is this little corner. Which is fine by me since a few months ago, all I had was the coffee table. What a disaster!
This room gets super hot when the sun shines. I have to get blinds up or I'm afraid all my inks and pens and markers will dry up! I share this space with an ungy stinky little lizard (its called a Bearded Dragon), named Frankie. Whom lives in a fish tank by the window. He watches me stamp, I ignore him. Its a great relationship. As long as he stays behind his glass, I'm happy!
