getting a head start on Christmas Cards

Hello Stamping friends,

   Another week has gone by, and I've been very busy stamping cards for birthdays,anniversaries, and pen pals. Also I've been getting card designs for my Christmas Stamp-A-Stack. I have 4 at the moment, I at least need one more or maybe two.
   At the same time I have contacted poison Ivy, yuk! Never ever had it before but it sure is uncomfortable.  I must have got it from our dog or someone at work, it's been a week and it doesnt look any better.

    Here are a couple of cards that we will be making at the SAS on Sat. & Sun Aug. 14th &15th from 4:00- 7:30ish.  I still have two moer that need to be uploaded. Thanks for stopping by, til next time.
Happy Stamping

Hello Stamping friends,

  Well it's been quite a Tuesday. I ordered a new living room set and a bedroom set for my younger son K.J., for he has been sleeping on a box spring and mattress for about a year in a half, at Bob's last Mon. Today they were delivered. My two sons and I were moving out our old furniture to make room for the new. The small couch was really easy but the big couch? It was tough. Paddy's girlfriend came over and between the four of us we were able to get it out. Both rooms look really nice and I'm glad it is all over. I will have a few bruises I'm sure.

   This month three of the ladies that attend my monthly classes are having birthdays, I usually try to make it a point of sending them each a card for their special day, after all this is our buisiness right? Here are the three  cards, I just mailed them yesterday.
