April 4, 2008

It has been quite a week. Not a bad one, just "a week". It will be nice to get some relaxation time in over the weekend. The rest of this week's cards have been posted at the CPS Blog, including mine. I will admit...I struggled a bit with my card this week. Stamping does not come naturally to me...and I kept stamping things CROOKED! But, it finally came together. Here it is:

Card Supply List: Cardstock (Prism & Bazzill), Paper (Crafty Secrets), Stamps (Gina K Designs), Rhinestones (Doodlebug), Ribbon (Michael's brand), Ink (Close To My Heart & Clearsnap), Border Punch (Fiskars), and Corner Rounder (EK Success).

Josh and I lost our first tennis match on the Wii last night...grrrr! I find it HIGHLY unfair that with the very small amount of experience points we have, that they are making us play the computer players that have 900+ points on their side. Humph...the nerve. (Totally kidding!)

I have gotten quite a bit of scrapbooking done lately....I just can't share any of it. I will say that I am really happy with all the layouts that have come together for me recently. I love it when it works that way!

Only one more week until we are officially on vacation for 9 days! It is going to be so nice!! We haven't had a full week off since last April...so this is definitely overdue. We are going to Big Sky again this year with Josh's parents. It was tons of fun last year! I am pretty sure Yellowstone will not be open this time around...so we will have to find some other adventures!

Have a happy Friday,

  5. Pretty card, Lea! Can't wait to see your LO's. Have a nice weekend.


  6. Oh I think this card turned out super!! I love clear stamps because you can see if you're going to stamp crooked. I have the same problem, and that's my best solution.

    With wooden stamps, I just stamp and if it's crooked I trim my paper to try and even it out.

  7. Lovely card, perfect for a Grandmother.

  8. well I think the
    stamping is spot-on!!
