Recent pics...

I've been kinda slack in the blog department lately, and I apologize. I've been sick, and there's some other stuff going on right now I can't really get into on here. Nothing bad, just time consuming :) I have found a bit of time to stamp though, here and there.

First I had to finish off some swaps that I had outstanding... and I can't show most of them due to SU rules :( But I can show you this lovely I made last night for a swap, using a favorite stamp set that recently retired - Font of You. Poor thing debuted in teh Spring 2009 SU IB&C, and went dormant in the 2009-10 one, retired Jan 4/10. BOOO. Hopefully that means there's a new fonty set coming out in the 2010-11 catty. A girl can dream, right?
Then there were a number of cards that the receptionist at my acupuncture clinic ordered. Most were CASEs of previous cards, but she requested one I had sold the stamp set for (duh duh duh) so I had to come up with something along the same lines... and I LOVE what I ended up with. Enter, Sock Monkey & his twin brother & sister :)

Let's see, what else have I made lately?? hmm... I posted the PTI celebration cards I made... oh yes, my February workshop items! There was this Valentine's treat cup slider (based on Heather's card) that almost gave me a coronary because my stupid Heart punch doesn't want to always work properly (which, combined with PMS was naaaaaaaasty. My poor hubby....) and a cute SAB-inspired birthday card. Love using 'free-to-me' items!


I had promised to contribute something crafty to the Easter raffle basket at work, and so decided to CASE Kerin Sylvester's great card using the Eggcoutrements set from the current Mini... Such a cute set. And there's a Chick stamp! Yay!  Isn't the card  cute?? I ended up making a pack of 6 of them, and putting them & envelopes in a cello bag tied with some leftover ribbon from last year's SAB. They looked pretty cute & were a huge hit at work...
This Kraft one on the left was for a downline member of mine who had to have surgery last week... I love the white embossing for a change, and the little bouquet I put on the inside & watercolored with my blender pen. Love that look...

The bluey card uses the kaliedoscope DSP and Bermuda Bay CS & ribbon - LOVE the combo. That DSP just in general (Kaleidoscope by SU) is my current favorite. Love the bright colors. Buy some. it's awesome. Trust me :D

The last card is for a friend who just found out she's expecting her 2nd lil one.. I needed a quick card,but liked how it came together. Gotta love the Top Note die...

SHOP SU 24/7!!
