October's Stamp Time Cards

It's that time again and even though I was REALLY sick yesterday, I managed to get these cards ready for ST.  I enjoyed the Inlay Die Cut technique and I hope that I'm able to teach it easily enough.  I had plenty of hits and misses. lol  Hope if you live in the area you will sign up and join in on the fun.  I will say, every time I have a ST I miss my mom.  She was always good for a laugh or too, most at her, good natured, expense.  Ok...here are the cards we'll be making.

Thanks to whoever posted the card on Pinterest that led to my snowman creation!

Another Pinterest swipe.  Such creative people out there!!

Ok, once in awhile I get a couple of my own ideas. lol  Clean and Simple are some of my faves!

Inlay Die Cut, thanks to SCS weekly inkling tutorial for this idea.

I made a couple of thank you cards and a baby card today. The thank you cards go to Gerri and Dale and their lovely DIL, Vickie and son, Dean. They invited us out last night for dinner and a play. Both were oh so nice! Great friends and entertainment! Love those folks bunches!! The baby card goes to my nephew, Jeremy and his wife, Melissa, on the birth of my new GREAT niece, Lucy Rose! Still haven't seen a pic yet but I have no doubt that she's beautiful!! Here are the cards, one thank you card was already in the envelope before I remembered to take pics. lol

Design Team Call...trying again. :-)

Here's the card I'm using to "apply" for The Paper Shelter's design team. The Paper Shelter has so great digis and ideas! Fun Fun!!


I colored this adorable snowguy using Copic Markers and added some touches of Stickles for some sparkle. The background paper was a snowflake embossing folder, and since I used a white core paper, I sanded off the color and mounted it on silver sparkle card stock. I added some silver cording and a snowflake charm to give the card some bling!

Sadly, I should have used my flash when taking the photo, the colors look slightly muted. lol Oh well!! Next time, eh???

I Love Getting MAIL!!!

Thank you, Sue, for such a darling card!! I love the digi image too! Looks like my favorite dog, Bear!!! BIG HUGS!!!
