Creating with something new

I really do use some products that aren't Close to my Heart now and then. I've had these stamps in my cupboard for ages. I bought them because I LOVE the dancers.but I had never used them. The phrases aren't CTMH either, just so I don't get pegged on that.  The paper is!  It's from a really old kit, even a NSD special kit if I remember right. Anyway, this week, that was my challenge. Use stamps I love but hadn't used. This was the end result. I only got 4 made so far.  I took them to work and sold them immediately!  So, I will be making more!   I hope you have a creative week this week!  c

This dancing lady stamp set is from the now closed ANGEL COMPANY.  I love this stamp set.  I love the JOY and CELEBRATION that these ladies show.

They make me think of old time Jazz music, or MARTI GRAS (probably not spelling that right!  oh well. )

So, I wrote this post ages ago and never published it!  Today it goes up!  See you soon!  C

Isn't technology great? I am finally getting around to installing a mobile blog editor on my iPad so I can chat with you all when ever I have a free moment, not just when I can sit in front of the computer at home! I put it on my phone too, so you may see a lot of me while I play and learn how this all work. According to the description, I can drop pictures in here right when I take them, won't that be dangerous!

As I am playing with all these new things, I am getting the plan for 2013 in place. If you are on my email list, you should have received the dates for all our upcoming club meetings. I am also doing a BUNCH of workshops this year that I am Really excited about.


I wrote the little blurb above about 3 weeks ago, and then didn't get much of a chance to play with it.  Well, this morning, as you can see in the following post, I have finally used my phone and  added a post.  I am so excited!!  It worked!!  I also have found an EASY app to put my blog address on the photos I post which I think is important.  And that works slicker that PB&J.  So, hope you check me out often, and hope to post often.  See you soon, c

Card inspiration

Just want to share some cards I was commissioned to make for a client this week. It was request out of the blue, but makes me feel like my cards are really selling well!
