Yesterday on SCS was Feature Stamper. I don't often get a chance to play this one on Sunday's but when I saw Danielle's gallery HERE on SCS, I knew I had to play!
You must change at least TWO things when you CASE a card. So I changed the Cardstock, DP and Stamp Set. I kept the same layout though. Why mess with something that works so well, right??
The card I CASED is HERE.
Can you believe it is the end of 2007? Wow, this year flew by! I don't know if it is because I'm getting older or if it was because our year was full of fun and exciting things!
January started off slow, as it always does for us with the holidays just ending. February we were gone the entire month on our trip across the United States(driving from Edmonton to Daytona Beach, Florida) for the Daytona 500! On our drive back, I stopped in Kansas to visit a friend. March was a catch up month for us with work and school. April and May saw Brian head down to Louisianna for work. June was a great month, end of the school year! July we left for our trip to California. Our drive took us through Montana, Idaho(where I met up with another great friend and her family), Utah, Nevada and finally to Anaheim, California. The drive back we drove up the West Coast and through the Redwood Forest(quite amazing). August was nice and quiet, just the way I liked it ;) September was back to school and work. Since heading back to school in September, time has flown by. I've had a great year and am thankful for my family and friends. I look forward to MANY great things in 2008!
Happy New Year to you and your families!

A very good friend of mine asked if I could make some Save The Date cards for her husbands 40th surprise party. I don't have any Save the Date stamps so I printed some off on the computer. I have never really printed onto Vellum before but I like the look.
She wanted some dark colours but I decided to add some Almost Amethyst Prints Paper too. Sure hope she likes these.
I think we will just print off all the information and attach it to the inside of the card.
Hope to get some time to stamp a few more thank you cards today as well.
Enjoy your day!

Aren't these the CUTEST Snowman Slippers???? This was a birthday gift from Chloe! She picked them out herself when her and Brian went shopping a few weeks ago. They have little snowflake grippers on the bottom. Good thing too, since I always slip on our basement stairs...haha!
Chloe still isn't feeling too great today. I think now she's getting a chest cold. Well I can deal much better with a cold than I can a fever! Whew!
I'm off to do a little shopping this morning. Then home to clean my house before my company arrives this afternoon!
Have a WONDERFUL day!

This morning on SCS was the Ways To Use It Challenge. You were to show some packaging of some kind. I needed to wrap up some odd shaped gifts, so I stamped the SnowBursts in Brocade Blue on the tissue paper. Then I wrapped it all in a plastic sack. Then tied it with some ribbon I had picked up at Walmart last month. I'd forgotten I had it...lol

Jen from Stamping Therapy puts out a challenge each week on her blog. I didn't get to last weeks challenge so I was sure NOT to miss this go 'round! She asked us to use Faux Stitching on our cards. Now many of you know, this is really the closest I get to sewing on cards...lol. I've only pulled out my machine a few times. This is my first card for her challenge. I'll make another one with my All in a Row stamp, later while watching the hockey game and in between shovelling ;)

They measure 3.5 x 3.5. I cut down some of my chipboard coasters to that size then glued a piece of Dashing DP to each one. Then I stamped and punched out the snowman from Merry & Bright and layered him with cardstock. I also cut a piece of cardstock to run along the bottom and stamped it as well. I couldn't figure out a good way to attach the glass to the paper though. I used Crystal Effects and it is holding really good BUT you can see it in the corners. Anyone have a better idea? Please share it with me....I have another 8 coasters after these 4 and I'd love to do them up and give them as gifts!
This next card is for todays Featured Stamper on SCS. It's ROSE ANN! YAH! I was so excited to see it was her today....couldn't decide which card to CASE of hers. There are soooooooo many fabulous creations in her gallery! I ended up casing THIS card of hers. I changed the papers and the stamp set but kept the same layout and idea! Thanks so much Rose Ann!
A little while ago, Lori from Inking Aloud sent me some wonderful stamped images in the mail! I so love these shopping ladies....it's so me! I wanted to colour some in today and use up some paper that Brian had bought me from Cosmo Cricket.
