I am back from a winter wonderland vacation...if that is what it is called. I haven't been doing much stamping..since I have been bummin' instead, but I would like to share a couple of projects from my upline. Since this winter has been a snowy one, she has been able to do lots of stamping to keep cabin fever away! Enjoy!

Stamper Spotlight

Welcome to my first stamper spotlight! You are talented, creative and making wonderful projects and I would love to showcase them for you. Appropriately enough, our first stamper used the Reverse Spotlight Technique to make this great valentine card. Bobbie M. is a stamper who took a bit of coaxing to even try stamping. She claimed to not be creative or have any creative skills. Several months later, she attended one of my Christmas card classes, as a way to get out of the house one evening, and she got hooked. Not only did she discover that she has skill, but that she also has creative talent! Fast forward a short 16 months later and she is involved with a monthly swap group, always trying new techniques, has hosted workshops, and only sends out homemade with love and care cards. Leave a comment, letting Bobbie know your thoughts on this beautiful card.

Thank you Bobbie for sharing and being an inspiration to others. Blog candy is on it's way.
If you would like to share your art work, send me a sample, and I'll send you blog candy!

6 X 6 Birthday Card

I had fun, pulling out my jumbo happy birthday wheel and making this card.  I used Soft Sky for the main color and not quite navy for my ink and accent pieces.  With the strips of crimped paper and a clear button, this card is great for anyone having a big birthday, or is just a lot of fun.

Sending you sunshine!

I have had fun dressing these dollar mailboxes up from Target. I decided to not do a theme, so I could keep it out all year...or at least pull it out when I need some sun. I love our Designer Series paper, the tone on tone makes it fun to work with and lots of variety. This project features groovy gauva.
