Look at what I've been doing!

I've actually gotten some stamping done this week! I've joined in some swaps on SCS so it's given me a great excuse to get some "work done". The first swap I joined is for mini sprial notebooks, which I love to make! I thought I'd join so I culd see what other people are doing! I of course had to add some "bling" to each of them. My favorite is the "Sweet Friend" one.

The cards are for a swap called the Great Assortment Swap. I make 11 of the same card in different catagories and receive 10 back, all different themes! I picked out Humorous Birthday, Baby Girl (of course), Thanksgiving and Love note. This is the Humorous Birthday one made with Birthday Banter retired last year.
I had to use my favorite stamp set, A Little Love for this one. It's my favorite stamp set and card layout.
This one was by far the hardest for me to make, I don't have any Thanksgiving stampsets!
I think it's pretty self explanitory why I used this stamp for my Love Note card!!

My heart (and current stamp collection). It's broken. Shattered into a million little stamp pieces. Devistation. The SU! retired list came out yesterday, and I have lost a total of 42 stamp sets to retirement. (I have a lot of gold watches to buy).
Then a ray of hope...something new, exciting, and cutting edge on the horizon? While I morn the departure of my dear good friends, the remaining 13 (yes, only 13) stamp sets and I eagerly await the arrival of new bundles of joy! I have had a preview of the hostess sets alone, and they are AMAZING!!! I can't wait to "bulk" back up so I can create hip and happenin' cards, scrapbook pages and 3D items to knock your socks off! Check out the list and let me know if you need to order that stamp set you've been eyeing, because after June 30th, they are off the books!

Who'd a thunk?

On Tuesday, SCS posted it's weekly color challenge, Pink, Pink & more Pink! Make cards using any color of pink and a neutral! I thougth this was a great idea for 2 reasons. First, this theme was to honor the Avon Walk for Breat Cancer Awareness, and second, since I only have 1 daugher, my life is surrounded by pink, so I have tons of it! I posted this card I made 2 years ago when I did craft shows in Perrysburg, Ohio and Petoskey, Michigan. I had a few left over and thought I would post it on SCS for this challenge. This is my favorite layout for cars, simple and cute! The similar card below is one I made that was featured on the SU! web site a few months back for a baby boy. Well, the ladies at SCS loved it, and have been e-mailing me their comments for the last 2 days! It just goes to show you, simple is better!
