I've found a new obsession!

I posted a couple of days ago that I was turned on to stamping and card making and I've been spending tons ( way too much) of time checking out the blogs of card makers and really loving the talent and work I have seen.

There's a website called Split Coast Stampers SCS which is full of awesome stuff for stampers and scrappers alike.

I am so in love with the Bella stamps.. you can check them out at Stamping Bellas I WANT THEM ALL!!

They are so stinking cute!! I wish my local LSS carried them. But, I'll resort to ordering them online. I'm also making my wish list from Stampin Up!

Anyone Have A Lamp Like This??

If you read my blog, you'll see that a few weeks ago I finally found my childhood bestfriend Cathleen after 30 years of searching for her! After we talked on the phone the first night I found her ( for 4 hours, mind you) she called me back to ask if my parents still had "The Naked Lady Oil Lamp". OMG, I laughed so hard. She remembered it from our childhood and told me that she always looked over her shoulder to make sure my mom wasn't looking so she could touch the oil streaming down on the lines... So funny! You know, I had to snitch on her and tell mom! LOL

So, I took a few pictures last night as I was at Mom and Dad's so I could email them to Cathleen.. Thought I'd share a couple!

Trying Something New.... Stamping and Card Making

I went over to Joni's yesterday to scrap a little bit and she was kind enough to let me use her stamps and supplies to make a card for a challenge we're doing for our scrap club.

I have to tell you.. I am really really loving card making!! It was so much fun. I have always loved coloring...LOL... seriously... once you stamp the card, then you color it in with pencil or marker.

This picture is not the best, and the card is nothing fancy at all.. just simple and easy to make. I spent all day today searching different stamping sites and there's a few stamps that I have fallen in love with!!! Bella's are the cutest!!

I've made 5 cards now... not completely finished with them all.. I'll post more pictures when I get them finished.

New Layouts...

I got some scrapping done.. still need to journal on the bottom two layouts.
I love the first one... I got a new Cricut for Christmas and used it to make the letters for the Title on the top and middle one.

Happy New Year!!




Just a few pictures from New Year's Eve. We spent the evening at The Diamond's and grilled out Brats and did fireworks.
It was a nice evening. I wasn't much in a partying mood this year..but it was still a nice night. The weather was nice. Tomorrow and Thursday we've got a freeze warning. It's the first freeze we've had since 2005. Gotta get all my warm sweaters and jackets out for whole 48 hours! LOL

Wishing everyone a Happy New Year!! 2008 has to be better for me and my family than 2007!
