stampin'! I really need to shake this pneumonia off before going back to school on Monday otherwise I'll have to stay home a few days (wouldn't that be a shame)!
This card was made for a packet of cards for a Christmas gift. I think she turned out really cute!
The paper is blue bayou, night of navy and the patterned paper is from an old SU package. I used my cuttlebug folder and the ribbon is from Michaels. The saying is from a MFT set.
Since Ihave been homebound since Christmas I have been surfing everyone's blogs. I'll tell you! There are some really talented people out there.What you guys come up with always amazes me. I think I will be doing alot of casing, if you don't mind. I've even been ordering on line. Have you checked out the Hanna Stamps line lately? They are just too cute!
I did sneak out of the house last night with some friends and went to the movies. Have you seen P.S. I Love You yet? If you do go I recommend you bring a whole box of Kleenex with you.
You guessed it. It's a tear jerker, not to mention there are quite a few good looking Irishmen in it. Well, I had better get busy on all my new projects I have in mind. Have a great New Year's Eve and get those New Year Resolutions going!!

Here are some awesome Christmas gifts I received from one of my former students. You see, I had this little boy in my class last year and his mom and I became good friends through (of course) stamping. We have gone to a few classes together and had a blast. So he came to school the other day with this gift for me. I was so excited! The first one is a gift card tin that she turned into a candy tin. It is soooo adorable! The second one is a mini photo album. The inside holds six photo sleeves . It's just wonderful. The picture doesn't do it justice. She used all SU products to make both these gifts. What a fun gift!
I was up pretty late last night making cards like crazy. I think I was in withdrawal. And today I am going to continue, what else is there to do during a terribly windy, cold day. Yesterday was 50 degrees and today is 14 degrees and 50mph winds. As you can probably tell by some of my posts, we here in Chicago, get every kind of weather no matter what time of year it is.
Have a great day!

It has been so busy (I know everyone can relate). We are finally out of school for two whole weeks. I have also been sick with a real bad cold and cough (which I never get coughs). If it doesn't get better by Christmas I will break down and go in to see what is causing it to last forever. I did get some really nice gifts from my kids at school. One mom made me some real cute paper craft projects and I will post them real soon. I am very lucky to work at a great school. The families have always been very generous. I'm off to surf and promise to post something in the next few days (I still have some cards to make for gifts). Thanks for stopping by!

I thought I better get caught up on birthday cards since I know I have quite a few birthdays in January (including my own). This stamp set is
from SU but I don't know the name of it. I
bought it at a garage sale this summer and
thought it was so cute. It has two other stamps
in it. The green paper is Wild Wasabi, the blue is from the Candy Cane package from CM and the red is Real Red. Well, we had another inch of snow on Friday and now it is sort of raining out to make everything an ice rink. We have my daughter's Christmas concert today and that is always very nice. The music they play is awesome (and there are treats afterwards). So, we are off to another busy day!

I have a good grasp on things and only need a few more and then I swear I will not go to another mall for a long time. Shopping at a mall is definitely not my favorite thing to do unless there is a scrapping store nearby. Have a great rest of the week and thanks for checking in!

Anyway, I can't wait until the bird is on the table. I wish everyone the HAPPIEST THANKSGIVING! Now, down to business. I am so glad we are off school for the next few days. Last night I went down to my little corner of the world and was playing around with my $1 stamps I bought this week at Michaels. They have such a great selection of Christmas stamps I had to buy just about one of each. This card turned out so cute! The paper is from a mega pack I bought last Christmas from Michaels. I hope you can tell I put glitter on Santa's beard and hat. The striped paper is also a little glittery. Well believe it or not it is snowing right now. Yesterday we had so horrible rain and wind that today I am glad it's turned into snow (not much though). So, I hope everyone has a great weekend (don't shop til' you drop) and enjoy the leftovers!! GOBBLE, GOBBLE, GOBBLE!!!

on my cards lately because I have been sooooooo busy with life. Tonight will be the only night I'll be home this week. Thursday is parent conferences at my school and they last until 9:00 at night but the good thing is that we are off school on Friday. Yipee!! The weekend of Nov. 9th can't come soon enough. My wonderful scrapping group will be going up to Michigan to Michele's (Thoughts of a CardMaking Scrapbooker) father's summer home. We scrap, stamp and eat and drink until our hearts content. We have an awesome time. Most of us stay in pjs most of the time and if the
weather is nice we manage to take a walk along the lake. It really is a great time. Anyway, what is everyone going to be for Halloween? I spent a good part of this weekend painting black dots on 8 white long sleeve t-shirts. The teachers at school and myself are going to be dalmations. By the last dot I painted I was seeing spots when I went to bed. I'll try to get a good pictures and post it. Well, have a great Halloween week!!

sweet ladies and we made 12 awesome cards. Two of the cards we each made will be sent to a
family in Michigan who had twin girls. At 3 months old they were both diagnosed with cancer.
So we are sending them some cards and lots of prayers. All products are SU products for these cards. I'm not too sure of the names of the papers we used. I will be posting the rest of the cards throughout the week. Have a great rest of the weekend and to some of you, a great day off tomorrow (for Columbus Day).
I have been tagged a few times and I promise I will get to those.

last week and I was so anxious to get moving on it. I made this card for my lunch mom at school for her birthday. I thought it was appropriate coming from my class. Anyway, I love how it turned out!! I also love the stamps from TAC because
they are so easy to use on the acrylic blocks. I'm
sure I'll have to get some more soon. The paper is
from DCWV and the peach paper is from SU but
I don't know what it is called. I used my cuttlebug
folder and the ribbon is from the dollar bin a M.
I colored the kids in with my Prisma watercolors.
The weekend is just about here so have a great one and GO CUBS!!!

The bee trio stamp came from stampendous. I have seen so many really cute cards make with this stamp that I just had to get it. I'm not thrilled with the card but the bees are cute. So I had to post this one. We have been really busy all weekend with band competitions and football and I just have a few minutes so I thought I would post something. I did get a chance last night to make a few Halloween cards ( inbetween waiting to pick one kid from band and chasing down the other one) . They will be posted real soon. Have a great day!

worth it. Saugatuck is a quaint little town on an inlet of Lake Michigan. There are hundreds of cute little shops and eateries and ice cream parlors. We had lunch at a restaurant right on the water and we sat outside watching all the yachts go by. We did do some shopping but all I bought was a single dip cone, but that is good enough , isn't it?!!
I made this card last night. It is extremely bright so that is why I took the picture outside (with my sunglasses on). The stamp set is from MFT and the green paper is gable green from SU.
The rest is from my scrap drawer, which I am not real good about keeping track of what paper is what. The flower is a Prima (of couse, what other kind is there).
Well tomorrow , believe it or not we are going apple picking with several other families. We go every year on Labor Day weekend. The Gala apples are ready to be picked and there is no one else there. We have a blast! I think the best part is the apple donuts. They are awesome!
Anyway, have a great rest of the weekend and thanks for visiting!!

This card was made for a friend who asked me to make her a few thank you cards. Well this is what I came up with. This little guy is so cute! I used SU purely pomegranite and the flower paper is also from SU. The white paper was Cuttlebugged. The little flower stamp was from one of the dollar stamp sets from Michaels and I added a little Bling to the middle of the flower. I may have to make a batch of these to keep on hand. Well, school is out for the weekend. I know it is only Thursday but we always have this Friday off. It's great. 4 days off already, Yipee!! More time to stamp!!

I haven't had a chance to stamp since the weekend because of school. Boy, what a week we
had! It has been back in the 90's and our school is overheated. I do have several orders already from fellow teachers. So that is how I will spend my weekend. (Isn't that ashame)!
TA TA for now!!

My Favorite Things. I have a very hard time adhering the brick brack to the paper every time I use it. Any ideas? I used the mini dots but they always seem not to stick for very long.
Well, I'm off to Home Depot for some Gamsol and then lesson plans. Doesn't that sound like fun!
I always tell myself that if I can get my school work done early enough then I can head over to my stamping table . So off I go! (Puff, Puff)!! Have a great week!
