~Snow & Cards~

Good Evening!! We got snow today, well last night and this morning. Aundrea was out of school today. She was very excited about this. She loves to stay home with Cassie and me. She has been jump roping all day. She is getting better and better. I’m just glad to see her do something she likes to do. She likes to dance so we tried dance classes last fall but she does not want to do it again. She just doesn’t like to be in front of a lot of people. Jump roping is great for her. She can do it in the privacy of her own home. She got started by participating in Jump Rope for Hearts at school. She says “I’m jump ropin’ for hearts” while she is jumping.

Last night after the girls went to bed I went to go to my craft room and made some cards. The first one here was made for a friend’s birthday. I bought the stamp from Jenn D. She is super talented. Check out her blog here. She was saleing some of her retired sets and I had to grab this one. I have seen it used with the kissing technique. I had to have it so I could try it. I love this stamp and doing the technique. It gives the card a soft look. I plan to make more in a card set to give away as a gift. I was inspired to make this card from a card I saw on SCS. Sorry I don’t remember who made it. It was just so cute I had to make one.

This card was made just because. I love this stamp set and have not used it much so I gave it a try. This is my original idea. I don’t do many of these. Most cards I make have been inspired from other cards. I think this one turned out pretty good. I just might give it to Kevin for Valentines Day if I don’t make something else.
Thanks for checkn' in. Let me know you've been here.

The Big Blossom card is awesome! I never could figure out what to do with that stamp. I also love the 2nd card. I'm so glad you like the stamp and will give it more inky love than I did.
