stamping up north with laurie
When I saw the challenge this week at Less is More was STARS.....I knew right away which stamp I wanted to use. Twinkle twinkle little star from My Sentiments Exactly. One of my co workers just had a baby boy and the shower is coming up so I needed to make a baby card. Last month when I was in the mall shopping, I somehow got in line for a scrap booking rummage sale in the hall....that I knew nothing about until that moment. Lucky me!

Get Well, Don by CAKath - Cards and Paper Crafts at Splitcoaststampers
A dear friend had foot surgery this week. The idea came to me to use the Christmas stocking punch, wrapped in ribbon to look like bandages for him. What do you think? I think he'll laugh when he sees this. It doesn't get more customized than this. Thanks for looking.
Picture Book Giraffe Baby Card
I am having so much fun with all the new Simon Says Stamp Picture Book animal dies!! They are so cute, and so much fun!! I used my Picture Book Giraffe die to make a baby card...

A few new ones
I've been totally swamped with a new job and getting my life in a semblance of order around that. But I still had some time to make some new cards! I got a huge shipment of new stamps, so I just HAD to play with them, and here's some of the results. This first one was from a set of doggie stamps. My mom is always looking for dog themed cards, so I'll probably make her a set like this. This one is just a mini-card that can't be mailed on it's own, but they make a great insert to a bouquet of…
