I made my first ATC for a swap helpd by Nina Perrin. It was a lot of fun and I do believe I'll be making more of these little guys! I love the little Fairie stamp set. It's a retired one, but still adorable!

We are heading to Washington state tomorrow so won't be posting for a bit. Big , bad, Brad is watching the house and the dog while we are away. Thanks Brad!

Have a great week everyone.

The Ultimate Compliment

I recently starting sharing my cards with people I work with. I have so many cards and can't possibly use them all, so I thought, I'll sell them to friends and help pay for more supplies! Win - Win, right?
One of my friends, bought a Valentine's card from me and sent me this really nice note this morning. It really made my day and I hope she doesn't mind me sharing it...

I just wanted to let you know that my husband just loved his card. He just went on and on about how beautiful it was and how much he loved the fact that it was homemade. I wanted to be sure and tell you. I will definitely be a repeat customer.

For me, it doesn't get any better than that! Thanks friends for buying my cards and making it easier for me to make more!

I'm not much of a scrapbook person yet, which really just baffles me, but I'm trying to learn.
These are a few pictures from when our wonderful friends the Tompkins and Furman's came out to visit for Liz's second birthday. We had a ball the next day when it was nice and blamy and warm for a November day. We jumped in leaves and talked and had a great time.

Masculine Card Swap

I made this card for a Masculine Swap I was in. Donna was going to send cards to soldiers, so the name of the game was to make 25 identical cards that were not birthday or holiday cards that were masculine in nature. I chose one of my older, retired sets because it showcase my love of horses as well! This was done with Equestrian Dreams stamp set from SU, certainly celery & Close to Cocoa SU cardstock, gold eyelets that I used for holes to tie the twine in. I LOVE my paper piercing tool and used that on the corners as well. I was very pleased with the cards I got back in the mail from the swap as well. I'll definitely try and case a few so I can post them as well. It's harder for me to come up with "male type" cards, but I definitely have a bunch to use as inspiration now.
