I'm a slacker this week!

I've become a stamping slacker! lol I got a new toy, a Nintendo DS this last weekend and I have done nothing else since. I guess I should just say that I'm a slacker this week in general. Everything in piling up, laundry, dishes, etc.! lol I've got Brain Age 1 & 2 so I guess I could say I'm keeping my brain active! The game I have played the most is the Sims 2.

For those of you who know about my health problems, I thought I would let you know I'm on the waiting list for the Mayo Clinic. Hopefully they will be able to get me in soon and figure me out!

Embrace New Stamps

I got some new stamps the day I went back to work. Isn't that normally how it goes? The order comes in about the time it is time to go back to work! lol So I sat down tonight and had a chance to play with this set: Embrace Life. I love it! I even used the brads my friend Pegi sent me. I love the brads and I was waiting to use them on the perfect thing. Since the brads are copper I added a little copper cord around the DP. I love this new paper too! How do you like it?

Last Elzybell

Here is the last Elzybell card I made. I started on these last night and finished them this afternoon. I wasn't crazy about the direction I was headed in so I stopped. When I went back today I changed a few little things and added the faux stitching to the red strip. It went along with the DP I used as the large circle. I cuttlebuged the pink with the snowflake folder again. I'm so glad I picked that up at HL because I have been using it a lot!

Happy New Year!

What did I do for New Year's? I stamped of course! I was so excited when I went to my mailbox and my new Elzybells were there. That was really quick shipping! Here are the stamps I got and I just had to play right away!
Here is the first card I made. I used some of my new paper I picked up at HL the other day. I colored part of this with my new Copic markers and the red is a SU marker. Then I added some glitter on the snowflakes with my glitter pen. I'm not sure that you can see in the picture but across the bottom of the card I stamped "Warm Winter Wishes" in red.

The second card in my favorite! I used pretty in pink for the main color on this one. I punched out the scalloped circles and used the snowflake Cuttlebug embossing folder on the DP. I added LA and glitter to the girl to make the "snow" really pop! I hope you enjoy!
