On my way to the CABIN!

Hi everyone,
Just wanted to get a quick post up before meeting my Stampin' Sisters, The Moos, at Cabin on the Creek.  There will be lots of great cards and ideas to share once I get back from a weekend of stamping.  My daughter and I have been very busy taking classes at Let's Create in Wisconsin Rapids.  If you haven't been there it is SOOOO worth the trip.  Classes fill up fast too so if you see a card or technique you like don't wait until it's too late.  I would also like to remind everyone that I am fortunate enough to be one of the designers for this store.  Frankie, Sara and Lori are some wonderfully talented women so just being asked to join them made me giddy.  Below is a card that I designed for a swap with the Moos.  This card was such a hit that I have made more and they are available to buy at Let's Create.
The stamps are from Our Daily Bread Designs but as you can see each Soldier is just a little different.  I hand colored them with prismacolor pencils then sealed each one with Aleen's paper glaze.
Hope you like this I will update this post with links and labels next week but wanted to put up a little treat before leaving for the cabin!
Inky Hugs!

WOW ~ Where did the time go?

It's been way too long so I will give an update and a teaser.  We had a nice turn out at the Labor Day event for Muddy 13.  School started just before that so things were very busy.  I was able to chaperon a field trip for the first time in 3 years, so the new Fibromyalgia medicine is amazing.  Still needed time to recover & recharge but got to enjoy a healthy day with my baby!!
Now for the teaser, I am applying for the Sweet Pea Stamps Design Team!  All 3 of the cards submitted for consideration will be posted here after the designated time has pasted.  I can't wait to show everyone.
Plus, The Moos will be stamping in Freemont this weekend so there will be lots of great cards to show you from our wonderful get together as well.  So, for now I leave you with the promise of many GREAT creative joys soon to come.
Thanks for stopping by,
