Good Monday Morning!!!!
So I knew it would happen we had a week of mid summer weather and then this morning I had winter coat and gloves back on to go and do circle check and start up the bus.....burrrr.
It was however a lovely weekend with friends at a long awaited class. My BFF recently had to step down from her demoship from Stampin Up and well she invited me to come and stamp with her and some previous customers and friends. It was so much fun and this is one of the cards that we made that afternoon....4 in total.
I am always drawn to samples where the person has used buttons and yet any time I ever tried to include them it just went wrong. Well the lovely set "Button Buddies" it is very easy for those of you out there like myself to use the buttons you have bought and never used because you couldn't get it to look right. Along with the Twitterpated DSP and matching buttons and VOILA I used buttons and you can too!!!!...smile
Hope you like it and are inspired to try buttons again

Okay I am going to have two posts for you today....this one is for Kathy who informed me yesterday at a class that she checks me out everyday and well I have not been very loyal to my blog. To be honest I was considering whether this is something I wanted to continue with....Stamping Up.
Our family as I have talked about before has been having a hard time lately with illnesses and my heart was just not into stamping, it was a REAL effort to get back into the craft room. It used to be that stamping was my go to therapy but it wasn't doing it for me this time.
However even though my father will never be cured he has started feeling better....his massive blood clots are still large and he is still on meds to shrink them so that they will desolve, and he is not totally out of the danger but he is supposed to start pushing himself a little to try and build up his breathing and strength again.
He says he is even feeling better, so when my girlfriend (BFF) aksed me to come and do a class at her home for her friends and past customers I said sure and even though I felt like I was a new stamper all over again it felt good to hold that rubber in my hand and even had some uninked stamps meet with some inks and all was good....felt like riding a bike all over again it all came back....although Stampin Up makes it pretty easy with their beautiful Designer papers which is always my inspiration.
Okay so now that I have rambled on about the card above I was in a swap as I said in a previous post that was focusing on the items from the Occassion mini and one of the cards I recieved back was very similar to this card I had made a few changes but it was someone elses card that was the inspiration ( I will post her info once I find the original card)
Thanks for stopping by
and thank you Kathy for sticking by me and my uneventful blog!!!!....smile
