Lazy Sunday

I spent all day on the couch on Saturday under the weather and when I woke up on Sunday feeling better I decided I needed to stamp! My daughter thought that was a great idea so we went off to stamp together. She was having fun making cards for all her friends and I was having fun making gifts for my club members. We had an enjoyable morning! I'm glad we did this in the morning, because by the afternoon she was on the couch sick :(

Here is what she did:
She is learning how to write so she would ask me how to spell her friend's names. Aren't these so cute!

Mine aren't as cute, but it is my blog so I get to share :)

I made wish lists and little post it key chains for my new club members. The pens I purchased at convention. The directions for the post-it key chains can be found here. I used the new owl punch that I swore I would not purchase. Well, fortunately I saw the error in my ways and purchased it! That was a close call! LOL

I am so happy that my daughter loves stamping. I can't wait until she is old enough to scrapbook with me :) Actually, I take that back. I can wait. Time is going by too fast as it is!

Altoid Tin

Sorry about the blurry image! I had fun playing with more new product in the catalog! The paper flowers are white and you can die them! How fun is that? Then, of course, you can have any color flowers you want!!! COOL!

This was a tin I made for a convention swap! This would be great for a gift card or some little treats for a party favor! I put a few antique brads in them for my swap.

Stamps: Tiny Tags
Card stock: Elegant Soiree DSP (love it!)
Ink: Soft Suede and Baja Breeze
Accessories: Basic Pearls, Paper Daisies; Chantilly Crochet Trim, Mini Vintage Tags.

I just followed the directions in the catalog to color the flowers. You just add some reinker to water and let the flower soak for a moment then take out to dry. Easy!

I just love black and white! This is another new set in the catalog and it makes me want to visit Paris :)

Stamps: Artistic Etchings

After stamping sporadically on the Whisper White, I also sponged a little to fill in the blanks!
