All Occasion Stamp A Stack

This is the third of three cards from my All Occasion Stamp-a-Stack. This card making session if you haven't noticed, used Stampin' Up!'s beautiful browns (Soft Suede & Chocolate Chip) in each one!
This card was inspired and CASEd from Monika Davis. She is a very talented and creative
Stampin' Up! demonstrator who shares on my StampinUpLateNightStampers group!
Thanks Monika!

All Occasion Stamp A Stack

This is one of the three cards my All Occasion Stamp-a-Stack class made this past week! I was anxiously awaiting my new Sweet Pea Designer Series Paper from Stampin' Up!'s Occasion Mini catalog, but it didn't come in on time! I used another dsp from a past catalog that almost matched. Isn't it beautiful? It's been CASEd from Tiffany Bauer! Thank you, Tiffany!

Monogram Card Class

I had quite a crew of creative stampers here before Christmas for my Monogram Card Class. I thanked them over and over for coming to this class, sight unseen! By special request, here are the cards I designed and their matching packaging made that evening!

Some special people received these as Christmas gifts and I'm sure they were well received!

Happy New Year!

Wow, it's year 2010! Doesn't it seem like just one year ago it was Y2K? I hope you had a fun celebration and it was 2nd to Christmas with family and friends. I've been so blessed by family, good friends I've kept in touch with and re-connecting with friends from my life experiences this past year.
New Year resolutions are common for everyone to set. Goals that are practical and achievable are a must, but I believe you can accomplish any goal if you set your mind to it. I'm going to post a couple goals, in writing, on my bathroom mirror. That way, I'll see them a couple times a day as a reminder of what I want to make happen. That reminder should be there until the goal is achieved or a new one has been set, taking it's place.
I hope that whatever goal you have set as your New Year's resolution will be one that you will work towards and achieve in 2010.
All the best to you ~
