Here is another Inspiration challenge from Kristina...

And here is my interpretation!

I have been stamping away since I have been off, and I have a LOT to show ya'll over the next couple of weeks. So keep checking back...If I don't post again soon enough for you...LET ME KNOW! Sometimes I forget!
I will be mailing off my submissions for the October SU! Contests next week, how about you? My SIX FREE stamps sets, that I won from last months contests, are due to arrive any time now, I can't wait to play with them once I have them all put together...sometimes those alphabets can be a pain, but hey...they were FREE! Happy stamping and check back again soon!

I placed my order...

I received a call today so I could place my order for my SIX FREE stamp sets for winning the contests last month...Here is what I ordered...

All In The Family
Wonderful You
Flower Fancy
A Rose Is A Rose
Taffy Alphabet
Ticker Tape Alphabet

$228.70 worth of FREE I will just have to put them together...I wish the Aplhabets were die cut already...That would be GREAT! Oh Well...I will just have to put them together siting in front of the TV...

Here is another card for you...YEP...I once again used the Top Note Die...

Can you tell it's my favorite? I loaned it out last Sunday to my upline so she could use it for her Founder's Circle you think I could use another die? Apparently not! I haven't touched my Big Shot since last weekend...BUT that is going to change tomorrow...I have some ideas with the Envelope Die that I can't wait to play around until nexttime...Happy Stamping!

I WON...I WON...I can't believe I WON!!!

Hey...I just received an e-mail from Stampin' UP! and I won TWO of the September Contests...I am SO excited!!! Here is the scrapbook page that I sent in for the Accent Your Memories contest.

This is a photo that I took of Reilly a few months ago in our backyard. I used the Define your Life stamp set to describe him and his personality. The Life is Good is mounted onto the Top Note shape and I added Crystal Effects and Microbeads for texture.

I also sent in the card in the previous post for the Rub It On contest...and I won that one TOO...the only difference is, that in the card I posted I used the white rub-on on the black cardstock and on the card that I sent into Stampin Up! I used the black rub-on on Kraft cardstock...I am so excited to win another SU! contest, but to win TWO in the SAME month...I am over the moon...Now all I need to do is go and pick out my 6...YES SIX...FREE Stamp Sets...which ones should I choose???? Which ones would YOU choose...Help me decide...I have so many stamps already!

LOVE this bear! I think that he is such a CUTE and GRUMPY little animal...He looks a bit menacing, but he just LOVES me too...I found this rub-on last week in my stash of stuff and as soon as I read it, I wanted to use it with the bear...I think he's so cute...even my DH liked this card. What do you think?

Well..I went to the doctor for my follow-up yesterday from my surgery last week. I thought that I was going to be able to go back to work next week...NOT...he wants me to stay home until Oct 1st...which means I will have LOTS of time to stamp! I am looking forward to that...I have gotten so much done this week, and I have had such a good time doing it...I would love to do this full-time I just need to clear about $2000.00 a month which is just not possible right now...oh well...I guess that I will just have to keep my day job...Happy Stamping and come back soon!

Told you there was more...

I have been off of work,the last couple of weeks, as I had I have been stamping up a storm! Here is one of the FIRST sets that I HAD to have from the Fall/Winter Catalog. I LOVE this set, as do my teenagers.

I used the Big Shot Top Note Die to make the card and added the Skull from the Just Jawing Stamp Set...My girls LOVED this card...and I think it turned out pretty cute too!...Come back soon as I still have TONS of cards to show you!
