Card for Stamp Fairy Challenge.

I actually missed the challenge using the sketch I used for this card but this will work for the Any Holiday Theme.  The bear image is a Stamp Fairy World digi.  So adorable!!

A Day at Sue Chaney's

Boy, life is wonderful.  This has been such a week of fun...stamping with friends.  It's so relaxing and renewing.  So this week was a Gerri Morgan, Donna Yulga, and Sue Chaney kind of week.  WOO HOO!!!  Thanks ladies!!  You are such special gals!  Tomorrow I'll have another good day since my niece, Shelley, is flying into Milwaukee.  YAY!  Sad to say her dad, my brother, Paul, has cancer and she's coming to spend time with him and to help him make appointments.  Those of you reading, prayers are greatly appreciated.  Paul is a strong and spiritual man I am sure God is giving him strength....ok...anywayyyy, Shelley is arriving tomorrow!!  yipee!!  Ok...back to Sue...I got to visit her for the first time since she moved closer to me again.  Love her home and her decorating is awesome!  We spent time stamping and talking...ok, mostly talking since I only have a couple of cards to post. 

This one is Sue's My Favorite Things Wed. Stamp Club Sketch entry for this week.  I adore it!!  The colors are perfect for this cute little stamp!!  I hope she takes a better picture because this one doesn't do it justice at all!!!  It is by far a lot prettier!!

This is my entry to the challenge.

Here is the other card I made after all day at Sue's.  hehehe

Thanks so much for looking!

Stamping Fun Again Today with Donna Yulga

Donna was over bright and early to make her Christmas cards.  They turned out great!!  I, on the other hand, forgot to get a picture of them to post.  I'll wait to see if I get a card from her then I will post it!

Here is a card from Sue Chaney.  We have that back and forth deal going on.  This card is adorable!!  She did ask me if the sentiment looked familiar or that silver background paper...hmmm...seems to me that came off the last card I sent to her.  Recycling at it's finest, I guess. heehee  WTG Suze!!

Here is a drop dead gorgeous card from Claire Easson!!  Ooooh How did you know that I LOVE LOVE LOVE polar bears???  Besides that, the coloring is amazing!  Your sky is wonderful!!  You really WOWed me, girlie!!  Thanks bunches!!!

Here's my entry into Mojo Monday's Sketch 218.  It's the first time I've entered one there.  I think I'm in love with sketch challenges.  I need to find a couple more to do in a week. lol

Thanks for stopping by!!
