Cardmaker Blog Hop

WOOHOO just incase you didn't know there is an awesome crop going on over at CardSwaps this week. Challenges and games will be posted August 8-11, 2012 and you have until 11:59PM EST August 14, 2012 to get your projects posted to the appropriate thread. If you haven't participated before, don't worry! There are many members and myself that will be around to offer support and encouragement. You can find out all you need to know in the forum. At the end of the hop, you will be taken to the crop and I do hope you join in. Collect the letters along the way and unscramble them to entered into the drawing for a prize for one lucky hopper! You will be given details at the bottom of the post. Don't skip ahead!!! Please read my babbling.
OK... You arrived here from Ana's blog, I hope. If not, go back and check out her blog and collect your letter. Then collect my letter and hop on. If you want to start over, feel free to start back with  Brooke on the CardMaker Magazine blog.
The blog hop "theme" goes with the crop title of "Treat Yourself". The type of project to make was left up to the hostesses of the blog hop, as long as it somehow conveyed a way the hostess "treats" herself. We were also asked to share something about a way we unwind or our favorite way to treat ourselves
I created a birthday card because seriously if you can't treat yourself on your birthday the when can my birthday is coming up in a few weeks, not a big birthday but none the less a birthday :)

Stampin Up Mixed Bunch and One in a Million stamp sets
Stampin Up Lucky Limeade bakers twine. 
My life is really simple, I am lucky enough to stay at home with my son who is 16 months old...he is starting to scribble with crayons and I am really looking forward to when he is able to stamp with me(hopefully he will want to).  I am also a stampin up demo and when I need to relax I go into my stampin room and play with my stamps and ink...or I get a pedicure :)    I hope that you are enjoying the hop and that you will hop on over to Lora's blog
Oh and before you leave I suppose that you will want my letter so that when you are all done hopping you will be able to unscramble all of the letter is "N"

Here is a list of all of the blogs just in case you get lost along the way...

Christmas Stamp A Stack

I am excited to announce that I will be hosting my 2nd Stamp a Stack :)  This time around we will be making Christmas cards...There are 2 different days that I will be hosting either Saturday September 8th(starting at 1p.m.) or Wednesday September 12th(starting at 7 p.m.).  During the class you will make 4 of each of the 5 card designs for a total of 20 cards.  The cost is $25 for one stack or $40 for 2 stacks.  The only thing that you will need to bring is adhesive.  Just like with my last stamp a stack if you love the cards but you can't make it I will be more than happy to create kits with all of the materials to create the cards, all you will need to do is put them together...if you are local I can drop them off and if you aren't then I can mail them to you for $5.  If you have any questions or to sign up you can email me at or call me (419)704-0848
