Yesterday was our all day stamping and it was fun! Some came and went but my friends and I were there from 9:30-5:30. I made ten cards and my hand was swollen and aching, not so much from the stamping but from using the punches etc. We made two simple cards with Stampin'Up and two with CTMH. Amanda (CTMH) showed us a neat way to tie a bow. First you cut a length of ribbon the size for your card, then take the ribbon still on the spool and tie a bow or knot around the first length. Cut it off and glue the ribbon to your card. The neat thing about this idea is that the knot will slide so you can position it wherever you want it. When I got home I iced it and today I took it easy and didn't do any stamping. After church we went to town as I had a list of things to get at Wal-Mart. One of them being a new bulb for my Ott light by my computer. They didn't have them and wouldn't you know that I forgot to tell Jim that we needed to go to JoAnn's because he said we needed milk. In the meantime til we go back again I am using my desk Ott light that I have on my craft table.
Now about my card. I used the Carousel Note Cards from Stampin' Up. The patterned paper is Cloud 9 and I traced around the scallops and cut them out. Brown textured CS is from my leftovers. The image is Stampin'Up's Hostess gift and is stamped on Colonial White and colored with gel pens from JoAnn's. I stamped the image in Staz On Timber Brown. Photo Hanger is from CTMH and the stripped ribbon is from Michael's, brown ribbon is from JoAnn's.
Hubby just informed me that Amazing Race is on. Later.
