I am hosting an ATC swap on the Purple Faerie yahoo group and the first of them has started to come in. These are Deborah Cariker's ATCS. She was in fashion, open, and java groups of the swaps. I will get more posted as I get them scanned.
Ainsleigh had her last regular season swim meet this weekend. She has finally decided to listen to me and use her arms when she swims and what do you know- she's fast! Here is her freestyle race. She also finished first in breast stroke and second in back stroke.
I always have such great plans of sending out handmade Christmas cards. It rarely happens. Last year I did make 10-15 cards, but none of them made the mail. They were all given to teachers and coaches and no one had to go to the post office. I haven't had a stamp in this house since they were like .37.
Anyway, this year I am determined to do it. I have already made a Christmas card and it is early July. It's actually more winterly than Christmasy, but hey it's made! So here it is. I call it sledding polar bear. I hope to follow with many more and if these cards are lucky, they will make it into the envelope and into the hands of a friend or family member PRIOR to Christmas!
I am not much of a blogger. I guess it takes some getting used to. This ice cream stamp is one of the very first stamps I ever bought. I made this card with scraps, the cuttlebug, prisma pencils with gamsol, stickles for some glitter and a skittle cherry on top!
I have one daughter that is very active in gymnastics, 2 crazy dogs, and 1 very fiesty cat. I enjoy all types of paper crafting, but mainly card making. My favorite tools are stamps, copic markers, and my cricuts. I am on the design team for www.cutterscreek.com, an awesome online store, as well as the challenge blogs Scrappy Frogs, Cooking With Cricut, and Papercrafting World.
