Here's one of my swap cards for Jan. The stamps are new from Hero Arts. Colors are Marina Mist and So Saffron. I need to get busy on Feb. VA cards. I'm also reading a good book and I am starting to clean out my stamping stuff. I'v convinced myself to spend an hour a day doing that. We'll see how that goes.

Here's another Va card. I have had this stamp since I started stamping. I bought it unmounted so I have not idea what co. made it. I embossed it in silver and added the saying that is a sticker. I did not get a very good picture of it. It really was a nice looking card. The squares behind the image also is stickers. I went through all my stickers and got rid of some that I knew I would not use. I really need to do more purging but the thought of that is something I procrastinate about!

I had a very productive day yesterday. I got most of my Jan. VA cards done. I think I only havfe one more to make. The twill ribbon I used on this VA card for last month was a "find" @ Michels. The minute I saw it I knew it would work well with a butterfly stamp I have. Simple and easy to put together.

Here's a shoe box card I made. I don't use enough designer paper. It's a pretty simple design. The tag is Spellbinders fancy tags.
Yikes, I am trying to get my January VA cards done. We picked up the list yesterday and I have to get two in the mail today. I'm experiencing a brain freeze. I did do a couple I like. I am trying to use up some stuff that I have had forever. You'll see the results soon.

I have been MIA for a week. We sold our house 2 days after Christmas so we made a quick trip to Indiana to see what is available there. We had to be out of our house on Jan. 23 YIKES!! We found one house that we would consider and started home on Fri. thinking that we would rent here and make another trip to Ind. in a month or so to find a house. On the way home we got a call from our realtor stating that our buyers buyer had backed out of the deal so we are not homeless after all. I know that I am going to go through my stamping stuff and be ready the next time.
Here's a card I made with a stamp I got in our shoe box exchange. The embossing folder is one I bought when we visited our son in Thousand Oaks Ca. I took a 3 minute walk to Michaels.Located just out side their gated community. We would all die for a store like that at the Rim. Lots of stuff I have never seen @ Michaels in this area. Any way this embossing folder is one of 4 that I bought while there. The folder is called Paper Lace II. It has 2 5x7 embossing folders & 2 4.25 x 5.75 folders. I love the design. I think the "need a lift" is perfect for a get well card.
Patty & Dave had a bug and they were kind enough to share with us so I am running on low level fuel. Hopefully we will both be better in a day or two.
