October Cards and Veteran's Day

I wanted to share with you the cards that I made with my October 2012 Simon Says Stamp Card Kit of the Month.  I got a lot of cards out of this kit an still had paper and letters left over.

I also wanted to take the chance as we observe Veteran's Day here in the US to thank those who have served or are serving in the armed forces and also to their families.  I come from a military family.  My father served in the Air Force for over 20 years and is now buried in the National Veteran's Cemetery in Bakersfield.  My oldest brother served in the Army for 4 years and my youngest brother served in the Navy for 12 years.  All loved being a part of the military and serving their county.

Please take time to ponder the sacrifices these men, women and their families have made for our country and allowed us the freedoms we take for granted.

Here are the cards from the October Kit.

September Cards and a Hint of Fall

October is here and we are finally enjoying some cooler weather here in central California.  It went from 100 degrees down to the 70s in about a week.  It turned cooler on my birthday (October 5) when it reached the 70's.  Today the temp rose a little (about 90) and but it supposed to start being in the low 70's next week and cooler after that.  YEAH!

I wanted to share some of the cards I made using the Simon Says Stamp Card Kit for September.

I also wanted to post a Fall Themed mini album I have for sale at my Etsy shop.  I also have a video on my YouTube channel that shows the entire album.  Click Here to view the video
Please leave feedback of what you think about the cards and the album.

Happy Crafting,

July Cards

Just wanted to take a few a minute to post the cards I created using the Simon Says Stamp July Card Kit of the Month.

As you know by now, I am a HUGE fan of this kit.  I think it is a fantastic value and the stamp sets that Kristina Werner has designed for the kits are AWESOME!

For information regarding the card kit of the month visit www.simonsaysstampcom

Here are the cards.  Enjoy!

Happy Crafting,

Olympic Fever and June Cards is the final day of the 2012 Summer Olympics and I have watched MANY, MANY hours of them.  There were some exciting moments but I am glad to see them come to an end.  I was able to watch so many hours because I am half way through a two week "staycation."  So  this next week I will be doing things around the house.  Deep cleaning, organizing closets, things I don't have time to do when working.

Like much of the US we are experiencing some very hot temperatures.  It's been about 108 the last two days and I attended an OUTDOOR wedding yesterday.  The ceremony was at 5:00 p.m. but it was still well over 100 degrees.  Then we were relieved to be getting inside for the reception and the A/C was working so they only had ONE portable A/C in a room with about 150 people.  Yes it was warm!  It was a beautiful wedding and my friend the bride was one of the most beautiful brides I am have seen.

Okay..on to the crafting part of the post.  Here are the cards I made using the June Simon Says Stamp Card Kit of the Month.  I didn't make as many cards from this kit, I think because I wasn't really feeling the papers, not my style.  But I did love the stamp set that Kristina Werner created for the kit.  Her stamps sets have been fabulous.  Here are the cards I did create.

Cards Made from March April Simon Says Stamp Card Kit

Wanted to share the original cards I made using the April 2012 Simon Says Stamp Card Kit of the Month Kit.

Simon Says Stamp March Card Kit

Ohhh I have been SOOO bad about updating my blog.  It has been my resolution the last two years and obviously I haven't done well. 

I decided this year is a Leap Year so I am going to leap into my blog and do better.

I did a YouTube video (first time in almost two years) about the March 2012 Simon Says Stamp Card Kit.  You can see the video here. I started subscribing this month and I think it is a great value. If you subscribe they are $19.95 + 5.95 s/h.  If there are any kits leftover they sell for $24.95 + s/h.  You can get the info here

The kits are being designed by Kristina Werner, who makes AWESOME cards!  For more information about Kristina you can visit her blog here or her YouTube channel here.

Happy 2012!

Happy New Year!  I can't believe 2012 is here.  I have been off work since December 23 and will be returning to working on January 3.  Let me tell you vacation goes by MUCH quicker than the work week does.

Just wanted to wish you all a happy 2012.  I resolve to reconnect with old friends and update my blog more regularly.

Happy Crafting,
