Okay, I know you are all wondering what is more important in my life than updating my blog?  I hate to let you down, but there really has been a lot going on that was more important.  This is always the busiest time of the year for me with birthdays, dinners, and cleaning inside and out.  And before you ask; yes, stamping is more fun than all of those things but a girl has to get the "obligatory" jobs done so she can make others happy.  For those of you with husbands, you know how important it is to keep them happy so they don't feel neglected when you stamp every day in your life (sometimes for me it is the whole day long!!).  So there is a method to my madness, as I think anybody who does those mundane/obligatory jobs has to have a very big reason!

Trust me, I have been stamping a lot this last week but couldn't quite fit in the time to update my blog.  I'm going to get back on schedule by posting at least twice a week.  If I start to fall off, please leave me a comment and tell me to "make time."

Today I am going to post the last two cards from my stamping event last month.  I made both of these cards at Ronda Wade's last Baggie Book event featuring product from the Summer Mini Catalog.  I loved them so much that I added them to my card event.  Everybody totally loved them, especially the bleaching technique used on the "Sail Away" card.  The first card below is my swap card from last night's RubberQueen meeting.  I can't wait to show you Ronda's make'n take cards we made at the meeting -- but you are going to have to wait because we used all new product featured in the "2011-2012 Idea Book and Catalog."  I don't like showing product before it is released because it takes away the joy and surprise (plus, I feel like it is old before it even comes out).  So make sure you stop back, as I have some really good posts coming up.

Well I guess it is time for me to get some "wifely" duties done, as I am expecting company and probably should at least get dressed now that it is after 1 p.m. and I am still in my PJs (aaah, I live such a hard life).

Until next time (when I hope to have a very interesting post for you).

  1. Sandi, not sure if it's the way the photo is catching the light, but I love the Open Sea card. It looks like the sun is shining on the sea. Gorgeous.
