Got lots of new toys to play with...My sister's daughter's 2nd birthday is coming up so stay tuned for a Princess gift set.
- 3 vanilla scented candles (my most favorite scent in the world)
- Halloween bag full of candy (it had Hershey Kisses in it filled to the brim - yum! I had about a handful already)
- some lovely ribbon (a girl can't have too much ribbon, right?)
- H&M stamp set called "A Lil' Behind"
- a cute Fall card from Tracy (forgot to take a picture of it - she is one talented chic - love her work)
Thanks again, Tracy! Love all of my goodies and can't wait to play with my new stuff (while stuffing my face with candy - LOL)!

This is the sympathy card I made for my aunt's husband. I haven't inked TAC "Tree Silouhettes" since I bought it last year. This stamp set is the inexpensive version of SU "Lovely as a Tree" and was retired last year. I literally made this card within 20-30 mins. World record for me since it usually takes me about 3-5 hours to make one card. With my 3 yr old daughter at my side, it was hard to put this together because she kept touching things she wasn't supposed to so I ended up giving her a pen to scribble on some paper while I embossed the trees and sponged on some color. In the midst of using my heat gun on the images, some of the embossing powder got in the sky part and partly on the ground, but it just looks like it is supposed to be part of the card - like it's snowing *wink*.
I did not get a chance to make a sympathy card for the Judd Family yet, as I was trying to get Janessa's and my aunt' package out in today's mail. My aunt's birthday is also on October 13 so I thought of sending her card and the sympathy card together since both cards were going to the same place. I sent her the Hugs and Kisses card I made in my previous post.
This is it for now...till next time!

So after reading this, go hug your children really tight and tell them how much you love them!
Sympathy cards are always difficult to make - at least for me. Not only will I be making a sympathy card for the Judd family, but also for my aunt's husband. His father recently passed away this weekend who suffered from Alzeihmer's disease. He has been touch and go with his health the past couple of weeks until he gave up the will to eat. He had also been going through surgery after surgery and getting injured at the nursing home. His suffering is now over and now at peace.
God will now take care of these two special people....God Bless to all of you! Hope you join me in making a card for the Judd Family to let them know how much they are thought of.
Happy Sunday and hope you all have a great rest of the weekend!
I, for one, did not get a chance to do any stamping during the day. But made time to do something special last night. I made a card for Janessa's 2nd birthday using Gina K's "Just So Hippy" set. I bought this set awhile back and never got to inking it until now. Korin mentioned that Janessa likes it when her parents read to her when she is in the hospital, so I decided to pass down two animal books I used to read to my two children - they have so many books, I don't think they would mind *wink*. Both of the books have giraffes in them so the "Just So Hippy" set was perfect.
Also, you will be entered for a $100 gift certificate at SNSS if you plan to participate to create a card for Janessa's 2nd birthday and make her day special. So who's with me????
I will share the card in the next post once I get a chance to take a pic of it...

I am so ever excited to post about two cards I made last night. I got to play with 2 My Favorite Things sets, "Say Charge" and "How Sweet It Is". I purchased a few from the BST forum on SCS to get my collection started. I got some of the oldies (but newbies to me) that I have been drooling over since MFT came out with these sets (last year?) . Yes, I keep up with the latest and greatest, but don't have the $$$ to buy everything so I just sit on the computer while the kids nap and drool like a baby getting its first teeth.
Anyway, I needed to make cards for some upcoming birthdays this month. We were invited to our neighbor's 40th surprise birthday party, but the kids both got sick after going camping this weekend that we are most likely not going to attend. But I did want to make her a card to let her know we were thinking of her. I used the set "Say Charge" for my first card. Mind you, this is the first MFT cards I have ever made. Since it is Fall around my part of the boonies, I decided to use some fall-ish theme for my color scheme. I used the ever so popular Faith's (markiesmom) technique with the dots. She loves to put lots of dots on her cards - she makes the most amazing cards.

Just a quick stamping bio (more like a novel) - I have been a member of splitcoaststampers since July 2006. I have been papercrafting since then. I have a huge presence on splitcoaststampers and house my gallery there. I am also known as SCS member "a1r601". I also am a proud owner of the baby bug so I frequent the cricut MB as well. I am also in the process of creating my own website so this will be a temporary one once I finish my "real" one - whnever that is! I became addicted to stamping when I attended my first stamp-a-stack in 2006. After putting in my first SU order, I started collecting supplies (and more stamps) on eBay - a girl has to stay on a SAHM budget. My hubby was generous enough to let me buy things here and there as long as I was using a coupon at Michael's, Joann's or Archiver's. As years passed, I became fascinated with other stamping companies and grew fond of using unmounted stamps. I am planning on unmounting the rest of my favorite stamps at a later date. I accidentally found splitcoaststampers online searching for ideas and supplies and SCS has been my stamping/crafting haven as a way to get lots of creative juices flowing - there are so many talented ladies on SCS!!!
I promise to post some pics of some cards soon.
Lots of Hugs and Happy Stamping!!!!
