The year's ups and downs have me lagging behind at home as my Stampin' Sisters prepare to head to Salt Lake City for this years Stampin' Up Convention and 25th anniversary celebration. I decided that I wanted in on some of the fun so I have joined several 'virtual' swaps. Tonight I created thirty of these cards using one of my favorite color combinations Pool Party and Early Expresso! Some day I will figure out how to use some of the settings on my camera so that I am able to share better photo's.
CS: Early Expresso, Pool Party and Very Vanilla
Stamps: Daydream Medallions and Blue Ribbon
Punch: Scallop, Owl (for the circles), 1 1/4 circle, 1 3/4 circle
Thanks for stopping by!! See you soon!

Today was such a rainy, chilly day in Vermont. I couldn't deny that this was the best kind of day for getting inky. I walked around in circles avoiding my stamping stash until my 'Wicked' stepmother arrived to do some crafting. (We have called her this playful nickname for years). Knowing that I have signed up for several swaps coming up I had to do what I could to kickstart some mojo. I turned to a favorite card I had been saving to try from Dawn Griffith to get me going before I dusted off my Clockworks set that I still had not put to use. I had seen oodles and oodles of cards blasting the internet using this set and would love to credit one individual for the inspiration behind my card but it would be impossible.
After completing over 35 cards, I decided to call it a day! I'm looking forward to some creative time in the near future!
Thanks for visiting!

I don't know why blogging seems to be so difficult for me! I love Stampin' Up and everything about their products. I enjoy creating and sharing with friends and family. I don't understand why I am still struggling with the passing of my mother eight months ago. I go through uplifting times where I dig out the ink and start stamping ... before long something reminds of a special moment or card I created for her and it is back on the shelf they go. I hope the new catalog brings the MoJo back! Please don't give up on me!!
