Stamp Club

This past week my upline Angie was the demonstrator for our club. (She and I switch off every other month). Her cards were so cute and I wanted to share them. We used new sets for both cards. The thank you card is made with a new hostess set and the other is made with Embrace Life. I didn't buy either of these sets so it was fun to make cards with them.

Isn't this grey ribbon so pretty?

I really liked it alot. I hadn't used the new grey and it is a nice color I think. This card was simple but bold.

I love the new designer paper. The colors are very appealing to me. This card uses Embrace Life and I really liked how Angie had us fold the scallop circle in half around the edge of the image. We also scallop punched both layers with the corner rounder. Man, is that ever a hand workout!

On a Personal Note: Brett and I bought some good books at church last week. I bought She Shall be Called Woman and it is about the women of the New Testament. I have really struggled to be faithful in having personal time with God. I don't think a new book is the answer but I am excited to read through it. Sometimes I have a bit of resentment about a woman's role as the Bible lays it out. I know "times have changed" and that is fine and good but some things the Bible calls me to do not change over time. Anyway, I am excited to read through the book. I also got a book named The Girlfriends Getaway. Doesn't that sound fun? I am trying to plan a craft retreat in a month or so. We'll see if that works out. I need to get on the ball. Wanna go? It will be outside of Austin in Round Top, TX.

Talk to you soon and love you lots!

  1. The cards are great. The ribbon is great. I love grey, but then it goes so well with my hair. Not that I wear ribbons in my hair anymore. Much more fun to play with them on cards. Thanks for posting them.
