Hello Stampers,
I hope this finds all of you well. I have been trying to get things made, however life has gotten in the way.
Here are two cards that my daughter made for two of her friends.
I am so proud of her she is only 13 years old. She was so excited with the way they looked.

She used the SU pick a petal stamp set, and on the 2nd card she used the SU seasons of friendship stamp set.

Next you will see some images that I made for a Donation Swap for a Card-A-Thon that I am helping with. I used the Stampin Up God Bless American stamp. Please check out this link to learn more about the Card-A-Thon http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/forums/showthread.php?t=427076.

I hope you enjoy these creations. I will hopefully be back tomorrow to show you these Cork board wall hangers that holds pictures.

Blessings til next time!
Happy Stampin!

Hello Stampers,
I am sad to say that I do not have anything to show you today. I have accomplished alot, I just forgot to take a picture of them before I gave them away. In about 4-5 hours I made a baby door hanger (babies sleeping), 2 8x8 scrapbooks, 2 gift bags and 2 cards for the youth pastor and his wife at our church. They had twin boys in February, and I am ashamed to say that I am just now getting their gift to them. I am so proud of the door hanger that I made, it was so pretty!
Now I just have a huge mess to clean up and see what my next project will be.

I did finish my Easter cards!!! This is the first time in years that I have finished my cards a day or two before the holiday. I also made the little chick images for some swaps that I am doing.
I guess once I get my mess cleaned up I will make some graduation cards and mothers day cards.

I hope yall are having a Great Evening. Remember to make time for yourself and make something pretty for yourself!

Blessing til next time!
Happy Stampin,

Hello Stampers,
I am back...just a little later than expected. Since I have been gone, My baby girl turned "13", on last Friday. We had all of her friends over for a sleepover. All the girls had so much fun. We made a memory board for their room. (and of course there were 9 made and I forgot to take a picture of just 1) Just out stampinalabama@blogspot.com and you can see the one I made for Wendy for her birthday. I think they are so cute! The girls really liked them.
My grandmother has gone down health wise. I am hoping she will get some of her strength back soon.
Today, I want to show you these cute 3x3 card boxes that I made for a swap that I am doing at SCS, check it out here http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/forums/showthread.php?p=13468384#post13468384.

Here is the back of the box.

Here is the front of the box and one of the three cards that are inside. I tried to take a picture of the card closer however my camera was not working (it might be the taker). I found the box patter from here http://andreawalford.com/?page_id=85. I want to thank Andrea so much for her knowledge on making this box.

Recipe: (all supplies SU unless noted)
Cardstock: Certainly Celery, Red Rose
Designer Paper: Bella Rose
Ribbon: Pretty in Pink
Bling: Michael's

Also I wanted to let everyone know that Wendy and I are having a Stamping Class on April 2, 2009, at 6:30pm at the Oxford Civic Center Arts and Craft Room. Check out Wendy's Blog here stampinalabama@blogspot.com for the picture of the Easter/Spring Bag that we will be making. I will post the card by this weekend. The class will cost $20 (all supplies included). Call me today to reserve your spot. I cant wait to see you there.
I will be back tomorrow with baby cards and other goodies for other swaps I am doing.
Take care and stamp for yourself.

Happy Stampin,

You know I told you that I would be back this evening with the projects and invites for my daughters birthday party, however my day has not gone quite as planned. So I just wanted to say Hello and that I hope all of you have a GREAT Day! and I will be back tomorrow to post my goodies and I will have an extra card to show you. So until tomorrow, Smile and stamp/create something for yourself.
