April 9, 2008 - Accomplishment

So on Monday I swore that I would not turn on the monitor after work until I accomplished something crafty. Do you think I did it???


Well, of course I did!!! I made this darling little stationary box with 3 cards to go inside. I really love the colors and those stamped flowers are my newest stamp purchase. I totally adore them!!!

Check out my stationary box:


And the inside of the box w/the cards I made:


And the cards that goes into the stationary box:


I really enjoyed making this little set.

Last night I managed to whip out about a dozen more of the Post It note keychains but I haven't had a chance to get pictures of them to post but will try to do so tonite.

I spent last nite talking to a dear friend of mine from high school. I haven't sat down and talked with her in ages and we spent 2 1/2 hours on the phone last nite giggling like school girls reliving some of our crazy times and catching up on things in the last 10+ years that we've missed out on in each others lives. It was so great to talk to her - it really felt like old times as if we hadn't missed each other all those years.

Well, got work to do so I better get busy. A/R calls won't make themselves so I best get busy. Take care and have a great day!!!

Happy Scrappin'!!!

Over and out ya'll...........Photobucket

Just to cover all bases...................

I am not the best scrapper out there. I don't claim to be totally original, I lift from many places and in many forms from color combinations, to product usage, to technique and so forth. I try to be fair to all scrappers out there and mention them when I lift from them - now keep in mind, there are so many people out there scrapping, card making and altering items that naturally more than one person will have similar ideas. When I mention lifting, or casing as some call it, I mean when you intentionally take a design you see and duplicate it exactly or only change up the coloring........KWIM???
