I have never been more excited to go to a card club in my LIFE! I've been eyeballing all of these beautiful projects from afar, and I'm now finally a member! Even though I'll only be able to enjoy these benefits until June when we leave England. Oh well, bring on the fun while it lasts!!!

Before I add the club cards, I received a beautiful card from my dear friend Belinda!

Isn't it GREAT!! She used the  Elements of Style stamp set (Pg 133 in IB&C) and added a little crystal effects to enhance the center of the flower. She just started a blog, I'll update that once she's finished setting it up!  *UPDATE*  Check her out!!

On to the swaps I received. I'll only put a few on, other wise we'll be loaded down with pictures!! The theme was birthday.

This one is by the talented Mrs. Allison Nelhams

Club Swap

It's going to be a "Birthday Party" at Mrs. Kathy's home this Thursday!! To prepare for such an event, I have made 12 birthday swap cards. I think this will be my favorite part about going to this club; you get 12 TOTALLY different cards back!! So, a little elbow grease on my part, and I might not have to make a birthday card for a good while! We'll also be making a project, which I will update later on (its a secret...or maybe a surprise?)

Anywho...on with the card, right? I CASE'd (copy and share everything...its a crafter's motto!) from the very talented Tiffany Bauer at

I found her card on SU!'s Stampin' Connection site and knew I HAD to make darling and easy!!

Sorry if my photography skills aren't as good as others. (I'll work on that too.) This card uses Pumpkin Pie, Taken with Teal and Whisper White …

A New Year's Resolution

SO, I know this is about 26 days late to be finally come up with a gonna-stick-to-it resolution for the year, but here goes. I am going to write on my blog more. That's it, easy peasy. Is it too simple? I think not. If it were any more difficult, it would be four more months before I wrote again. So, instead of any more boring rattling, I'll get on with the projects I've created over the months. Hope you enjoy!

Wish big was for my sister's 38th birthday! I love the colors!!! I love the template that I used for this card more. SO easy!! (I'll update with a picture of it) It is surely a no-fail card!
 LOVE the Christmas Cards that I made. I cased these from the 2010 SU! Holiday Mini catalog.
  A baby shower invitation for a friend. The back has a stamped image of a carriage. (Its hard to see)
 First time using pastels above, I think it went alright. The flower card couldve been darker, but I didn't want the black to over power the coloring.
