Love Is In The Air!

I LOVE Valentine's Day!! Even though my hubby NEVER gets me a card, he still is so sweet. (And this year I already know what he got me!) So, here are some card samples to celebate this special holiday!
This first sample is a card that my new stamp club did this past Saturday. We used the A Happy Heart stamp set located on page 26 on the Spring / Summer Idea Book and Catalog. We used In Colors' Pink Pirouette ad Riding Hood Red and also the textured Kiwi Kiss. Also used was the DSP Bella Rose. We finished this card off with the scallop punch at the bottom of the card and the Riding Hood Red ribbon.

This card featured the Love You Much stamp set located on page 27 of our catty. Also used was the Heart to Heart punch that coordinates with this set. We used the Bigz Scallop Circle punch and the DSP Candy Lane. Colors used here are Close to Cocoa, Pink Pirouette and Very Vanilla. We finished the card off with some of the Chocolate Chip Felt ribbon that is now gone, but it worked perfectly with this card!

And here is the inside of the card.................

And, last but not least, here is a card I made a couple of weeks ago for my demo meeting. Here I also used the Love You Much stamp set. Colors used here are Real Red and Pink Pirouette.
We still have 2 spots left in our Stamp Club if you would like to join us! We meet once a month at my house!!! Just drop me a line and let me know!! And watch my blog for our next meeting date!!
Until then, Stamp Your Heart Out!!!!!

In need of some serious HELP!!!!

Before you look at the picture below I believe I may that I may have to inform you that looking at this may cause serious health problems of which I am not liable for........Just wanted to let you know....

So this is might not so hidden secret, my "stamp room" which is also called our family room, our dining room, my hubby's office, and also home to our fish and our Bearded Dragon, Max. In this picture is my desks and stamping area and my cabinet. No, really! Look closer. There are two desks under all of that clutter. And that white cabinet holds all of my stamps and ink pads and other stuff. No, really, I'm serious!!!! I know...............UNBELIEVABLE! I would like to say I'm embarrassed, but I'm not really. This is me sometimes.....all over the place!

Now, I can not take all the credit for this mess. My six beautiful daughters, and my wonderful hubby, and even my well-meaning brother-in-law have helped contribute to this chaos. Whenever someone doesn't know where something goes they all come to the conclusion that it MUST belong on my stamping desks! And I even toss stuff there when I just don't have time or want to deal with it!!

So this is the result of months of neglect. But, I atlast am starting to truly feel like stamping again even though my stamping sister is still so far away! My stamp club is even starting up again next Saturday and meeting AT MY HOUSE!!!! So, how's that for some serious motivation!!! I have 5 days to clean up my act!!! Especially since I have new customers that have RSVP'd.

So, watch my blog for progress pics! I will post one each day!

Until then,
