Stamped 25 baby shower invitations for my sweet friend. Used Close To My Heart stamps and Stampin' Up! ink pads. I miss Stampin' Up's craft ink pads. They are awesome. Glad I bought refills for all of those I DO have. emoticon

I made a get-well-soon card last night. Light yellow card stock (Stampin' Up!) for the base. I should've taken a photo...it turned out better than I thought it would. Next time I will get photos before I give them away.

I'm a card maker, and my favorite stamps are definitely Stampin' Up! and Close to My Heart. I love the House Mouse stamps, too.

I'm currently creating/stamping birthday cards for our office employees. Trying to get away from the usual 4.25 x 5.5 cards. I use my Cricut to make custom envelopes, so it's kind of fun to change things up.

Have you all seen the new Cricut Explore? Not sure I want to be reeled in by that...I'm seeing so many comments by others saying they love their Silhouettes. They're saying that the new Cricut doesn't compare with the Silhouette, though that's the intent by Provo Craft, I believe...to be able to cut more digital files. I don't know anything about that...not sure I want to explore those avenues. Just seems like more $$. Any comments?

Marcy, this is a terrific idea. Anyone that makes cards can participate and make our service people realize we do appreciate their service.
I am working on my Christmas cards again. Hope to finish the cards soon and then address the envelopes.

i was typing on this and it got away. i'm sorry if it gets to you twice. ....i just finished reading an article, "Cards For Soldiers", in Scrap & Stamp Arts magazine. They spoke of a project and invite everyone to participate. the project is two-fold: you make a hand stamped or hand crafted card and sign it to be sent out to one of our troops who is deployed overseas. the hand-signed cards are usually thank-you, miss you, holiday cards,etc to let the soldiers know that we appreciate their service and miss them. then you send another hand made card but leave it blank inside (and do not sign it). that way, the soldier can send that greeting card home to a loved one. the subjects of those cards are left up to the designer of the card (usually birthday, anniversaries, holidays). .. facilities with greeting cards to sell to our overseas soldiers are limited. often troops do not have access to email or phone services. they appreciate the cards you send. ..the author also asked for supplies to make cards and/or monetary donations. if you would like to donate to the project, send to:

Yeah...photos...you can see how good I am at photos...I don't even have a photo of myself! HA!

Speaking of scaling down, I recently sold my Cricut and all 65 of my cartridges. Miss them like crazy, but in my efforts to change my lifestyle (less SITTING), I have been eliminating my craft room arsenal. Still have a boatload of stamps & everything else, but I can see my work desk, and that's a good sign. emoticon

You are absolutely right, Garrie1. I still seem to be in the acquisition stage, although I may have to stop since I am out of room, LOL. Or maybe just give away some old stuff to make room for the new!

We ought to start posting a photo now and then, what do you all thing??? Maybe just a random photo once every month or so??

Made a "friendship card" for a great couple who have been inspirational in my life. Used Stampin' Up! stamps, card stock, ink, and ribbon. As the years go by, I find my designs are becoming less cluttered and much more simple. When compared to other cards and memory book pages I've made, I honestly like the less cluttered ones better. I remember scrap and card-making challenges where we added so many embellishments that you couldn't decide what the focal point was. As a natural consequence, I find I'm not spending as much $$ on my projects, which can't be bad...right? emoticon

I still haven't found the right words for the inside of the Baptism card... But thinking on it. I am now working on cutting paper for the all day Friday workshop at my CTMH demo's house. I am doing the papers for 3 of us, as it is part of my gift to my BFFs. We don't do birthday or Christmas gifts (except for significant birthdays) but always do "goodie bags" when we get together. It is SO fun!!!

Good reminder to start those cards. You are lucky to have 4 to make.
I make them for my 2 daughters and 1 daughter in-law, since they are all mothers. My mom has been gone for many years.
