Finally, a pic of a card!

Hi Everyone! I'm still in New York State, and haven't had one stitch of time to stamp. We are so much more active & busier this summer, than last year! We're having a good time and my fibromyalgia has been down to a low roar, so that is great! I stamped a bunch of cards at home for a friend who had ordered a bunch.
This card is made from Stampin Up products and is the standard A-2 size.
Stamp Set: Baroque Motifs
Card Stock: Chocolate Chip, Very Vanilla, and Mellow Moss
Inks: Chocolate Chip, Mellow Moss, Sage Shadow
Markers for faux stitching: Chocolate Chip, Sage Shadow
I hope you all are having fun stamping. I'll pop in again, when I can. Bye for now....Ret.

She's All That for a Beach Wedding Card

Hi All,
I had an order this week for a Wedding card for a beach wedding. She asked me if I could add some seashells for her and ofcourse I said "Sure, I'd be glad to!" LOL So I thought and thought, and thought some more...this is what I came up with.
I thought it came out pretty and she loved it, so everyone is happy!
Everything on this card is Stampin Up, with two exceptions, as I'll note below.
Stamps: Stampin Up She's All That & Carte Postale
small seashell & star fish from "Secrets from the sea" by Firecracker Designs by Pamela
2 large shells by a Michaels stamp
I really love how this came out and I hope you do, too!
We are all packed and ready to leave on our trip first thing in the morning! Talk about excitement! I'll be in touch once we get settled in on Sunday. Thanks for stopping by... Ret

Counting down!

Hi Everyone,
I'm so very sorry that I've got no cards to post. I promise I'll have some to post while I'm in NY!
I'm bringing some card making stuff & rubber with me, ofcourse! The trick will be to find time to do it. lol

For those of you interested, I decided to go to the gal that does Reiki and it does seem to be helping my thumb. I have much more movement in it and I'm delighted with all the benefits I'm getting from the Reiki. I would definitely reccomend it to anyone!

We'll be leaving Friday morning and I have a ton and a half of stuff to do yet!! Last minute Annie, here!! lol

I promise to keep in touch while I'm gone. My Mom has a computer so I have no excuse not to. lol Take care you guys and happy stamping! Bye for now....Ret
