From the Heart Card and snowwwwwwww!

Today I thought I'd do a fun post. A card and then some pics of what we woke up to Sunday morning. Ofcourse, also some pics of Abbi!LOL

Here's my first Valentine card this year. The flowers look like hearts, I think it's pretty. I borrowed this S U set, and the label wasn't on it, so I'm not positive of the name of it, but I'm calling it "from the heart". Hope I'm close! I used dazzling diamonds to add some sparkle.

This is what we woke up to Sunday morning. Look how big those flakes are!!! It was just beautiful!!

Abbi looking a bit bewildered with it all.


She never moved from that same spot...then headed for the door...

All of a sudden she took off running flat out, headed for the door. Note the foot in mid air during her flight! Doesn't that look say "Get me out of this white stufffff!"!!!! hehe

Over the River!

Hi there All! Happy New Year! Here we are, already 6 days into 2011! Is it just me or does it seem like our lives are just flying away? I can not believe how fast the days go by!! I hope everyone had lovely holidays. Now it's time to start stamping again and I decided now that we finally have a little snow, that I would use the old retired Stampin Up set, Over the River. I love this set, I never seem to tire of it. But, I always seem to make a scene out of it, therefore the cards all seem alike, next time I use it I'll have to do it differently. I didn't do anything different or special on it, just used Stamp n' Write markers on it with Dazzlin Diamonds. Pretty simple, but I had fun!

I'm still hobbling around trying to baby this foot and my shoulder, so sitting around and stampin suits me just fine! hehe I'm not sure what brought it on, but I've been doing alot of thinking about how I do things and for some reason, I always seem to wait to the last minute when it comes making specifically needed cards and even crafting for the fall craft shows. Do you know that I usually don't start my crafting until 2 or 3 weeks before the shows? WHATTTTTTTTT!!! AM I CRAZY??? I can hear you now! hehe

Uh, nooooooo, not crazy! I just always have loved the excitement, the pressure and the thrill of it all. Wellllllllllll, guess what! This year, I let me down. My body really had a hard time of it this fall, I had all I could do to keep up and it really took alot out of me.
wait for it....
double drumroll.....
I, Ret Callaghan Cudmore vow to play with crafts, or my stampin, each day (or close to) and will never be the last minute gal again! (I have to, I can't take it!!) LOL

Fibermyalgia has changed my ways, I have to concede! LOL Really, I'm okay with this, I'm happy about my decision. I'll be able to do a wider range of stamping now, and have more fun at it. And on days that I'm just too tired and have too much pain, I'll just back off a bit. So there, I said it. I PROMISE TO NO LONGER BE LAST MINUTE ANNIE!
Man, to admit was hard!! hehe

Well, I hope I didn't bore you too much with my thoughts. Have a super evening and stamp away!!

Stampin hugs,
