I know it is August, but I fell in love with this card the moment I saw it in the 2010-2011 idea book & catalog. Our demonstrators group had already planned on doing a swap with a card CASEd from the new catty. I just had to duplicate this one. It took me a long time to mass produce it…so many details! But I am very pleased with the end result. Maybe its not too early to start listening to Christmas music after all…
Last month I had to have surgery on my right shoulder. For 4 weeks I wasn’t even allowed to move it. That sort of put a halt on my stamping for a while. I am pleased to announce that surgery went better than expected & I am on the road to recovery. I still have 2 months before I can start any strengthening exercises, and my range of motion is still limited, but I am having less pain and increased movement every day.
Needless to say, I am anxious to be stamping again. I have already scheduled 2 classes for June and I am so excited. I hope you’ll be able to join me for one or both of them!
I am also excited about the changes that are happening at Stampin’ Up these days. We are saying goodbye to the retiring items in June and preparing for the new catalog that will be available July 1st. There are exciting changes taking place in the Stampin’ Up color palettes, and of course its always exciting to see what the new stamp sets will include.
I will be posting pictures of scrapbook pages and recent cards in the next few days so check back soon.
If you like what you see & you want to join me Thursday for some crafty fun you can go here to view my calendar and get the details.
What a great weekend we had just relaxing with family. Our friend Joel from Missouri stopped by to visit too. Now it is back to the work/school week. I have been working many hours in my craft room the last several days to prepare swap items for the Stampin Up conference this Friday! So excited about going & about getting to see my family in Indiana. Excited about my craft room too. It is almost done. Now the challenge is organizing & rearranging all my stuff! That will take me a while I’m afraid. I promised my family I would have the ping pong table cleared off by Christmas 🙂 I seriously hope it doesn’t take that long! I’ll try to post some more pics of the room & my projects soon.
