Last week was a trifecta of stamping. On Friday I came home and a box from Memory Box was waiting for me along with a package from Hero Arts!!

WOW where to begin! I don't know if you can tell but the MB box is 2 layers deep. The lower level is the newest collection not being released till April. If I show you, I will have to kill you! :)

The envelope design block by Hero Arts is one of those stamps you clearly think you can live without UNTIL you see what everyone is doing with it! It couldn't arrive soon enough!

Sooooo... I had my Saturday all planned, me, Memory Box and Hero Arts and a day of creativity. But wait it was the weekend of the Stamp Scrap Art tour in Oaks. Off I went with Pat and Bevy B for some more shopping.

I hadn't planned on spending to much, but Darcie's stamps was new to me and I really had to restrain myself. They are cling stamps that are well worth the money! The copic book to keep track of my markers was the best find. While there were only 12 vendors it was still fun. It is nice being at the conventions, I always run into old friends that I only see at those times.

So the stamping will be saved for my day off. The question is where to start!!

Happy Stamping!!

Note Card Frenzy

I have been having the best time making notecards. It has taken me 10 years to realize what a great gift they are!! People love them. Especially if they come in a cute little purse made from a paper bag.

I will be teaching this in a class at One Little Spark in Tuckerton NJ on April 16 at 12 noon.

Hope I see you there.

Not much to do on a rainy day but, either cook or stamp. Today I am stamping.

While the comments didn't show it I took quite a beating for my "more is more" card posted on Feb 20th.

Do you remember this card?

Well, I went back and made this card again. This time the card took me about 20 minutes not hours. It also shows quite a bit more restraint.

Look I didn't even "stage" the card. I think it speaks for itself. Simple elegance.

Stay dry, stay creative!
