November Birthdays

This is the card I am using for all of my November birthdays. I guess it is a good thing no one in my family looks at my blog. :) The stamp is by Impression Obsession.

Halloween at work

I almost forgot to post the treat cups I made for everyone at work. I am also including a picture my husband took before I walked out the door.

I used the sweet treat cups from Stampin' Up. I thought the spiders came out adorable.

Great Impressions

I never know what title to put on my post.

I have been sick this week so I haven't stamped too much. I still need to put the finishing touches on my Halloween treat cards for everyone at work. Hopefully I will finish them up tomorrow.

I worked on my Thanksgiving cards today during the football games. This is what I came up with. The turkey and sunflowers are by Great Impressions. I picked up these stamps a couple of years ago and this is the first time I have actually used them. I really liked the way the card came together.

Stamps: Great Impressions F334 Henry; Great Impressions H164 Peeking Sunflower
Copic Markers: G24, E31, E33, YR68, YR02, G21, E43, R29, Y11, Y17

Halloween or Thanksgiving ?

I don't know if I will use this card for Halloween or Thanksgiving. I have had this unmounted stamp for some time and I think it gets pulled out every year. I have tried several times to find the company but I haven't had any luck yet.

I thought I was finished with my Halloween cards but I have seen a few ideas that I want to mess around with. I still need to come up with something for everyone at work. Maybe this weekend.

More New Stamps & Supplies

One of the things that made this week so busy was that my boss sent me to Grand Rapids, Michigan for a day. It was a great trip and I enjoyed it for several reasons. 1) It got me out of the lunchroom for the day. I love working in the school with all of the kids but sometimes it is just fun to get out and do some thing different. 2) I was able to swing by my son's college and spend a couple of hours with him. We just sat around his apartment and caught up. It was just wonderful to see him and spend some one on one time together. 3) There is a great scrapbook store in town that I love to stop at. I came away with all kinds of goodies for the upcoming holiday season. You will be seeing most of these supplies being used over the next few weeks.

Stampin' Up Order

Well, I didn't get a card made Saturday and this week has been extremely busy.

My Stampin' Up order came in today. I can't wait play around with my new things but it may be next week before I get a chance. Stay tuned for some Christmas cards using the new sets.

After a long day at work Thursday, I came home and was just relaxing on my computer. Hitting a couple of my favorite sites, when all of a sudden there was one of my cards featured on Denami Designs. I was shocked. You can find the post here on Denami's blog.

Denami is also running a contest today for World Card Making Day. If you leave a comment, they will be picking two names to win gift certificates. Go over and check it out.

I will be back later today with at least one card. I plan on stamping while watching college football. Go Alabama....Roll Tide Roll.
