Life gets in the way ...

... what more can I say? I know that you all have had times like these. The older we get, the longer it seems to take us to bounce back after being under the weather. The only thing that has saved my sanity in the last few weeks is that I have actually been able to create a bit. I've still had my monthly club and a few card classes/stamping time with a good friend.

I'm going to share a pic of a star that I made using the Big Shot and the 5-Point 3D Star Die from Stampin' Up! I saw one that Diana Gibbs had done on her blog (I LOVE this woman's mind!) Diana's blog is one that I MUST read during my morning "routine". Another in my "routine" is Heather Summer's blog. Both of these ladies are so creative and inspiring. Heather made one of these stars using flashing that she bought at Home Depot. I loved the idea so the next time dh and I were in town, we checked it out and found some. The flashing came in a roll 12"x10'. I'm going to be able to get a lot of stars cut out of this!!

I'll be back in a day or so with pictures from our first club meeting.

Finally a Post ...

Edited to add: I've finally found the original designer of these cards and she is Andrea Walford. Andrea is amazing and I greatly admire her work. You can see Andrea's card here.

I've got a couple of Valentine Cards to post. They are CASE'D from another stamper but I was lazy and did not copy her name down in the file. My apologies and I would love to correct this mistake.
I'll be adding the details to all my projects at the end of the posts from now on ... sorry for the omission.

We had our first Club night last Monday and had a blast! I'll post pics of the ladies and projects in the next day or two.
