More from the Tennessee Stamping Ladies!

Here's a few more photos of our great time in Gatlinburg, TN.

Being the total photo geek that I am, I HAD to take a picture of the upside house.  This is called Wonderworks and it's a museum.  I'll have to check out the inside on my next trip.  They even have an upside down fire hidrant!!!

Tennesse is famous for the Hatfield's and McCoy's grudge.  Definitely had to take a photo of this place.  Actually took quite a few photos.  They have farm animals out front with cute little signs:

Here's a couple of shots of all of us -- there are two becaue Fuzz Brain here doesn't know how to use the auto shot function on her camera . . . . Where'd I put that camera manual????  :-D

Of course, I have to show another card we all made.  This is one of Beverly's lovely creations.

Now, can someone tell me why this one loaded correctly and the masculine card didn't?????  What is up with Blogger???  :-D

Thanks for stopping by.  I'll have more for you all later!

Masculine Birthday Card

The ladies who come to my classes at my house have been asking for more masculine cards.  They are definitely a stretch for me since I tend to lean more towards flowers and feminine cards.  The card I put together uses the Mocha Morning designer series paper.  I am going to be SO sad to see that leave.  I'll have to stock up on it (and other favorites) before this catalog ends.  Look out tomorrow as the Accessories discontinued list comes out.

The cardstock I used is Basic Black and Crumb Cake.  I embossed the Lovely as a Tree oak tree (Yea!!!  It's not being discontinued!!!) and the sentiment from Teeny Tiny Wishes with black embossing powder.  I can't remember if I saw a similar layout like this, or if I actually came up with it myself.  If anyone recognizes it, please let me know and I will be happy to give credit where credit's due.  :-D

Okay, I don't have a CLUE why Blogger is putting this card sideways.  I had saved it in the portrait position on my computer.  Aaaaggghhhhh!!!!  Guess I'm going to have to check with them.  They recently changed EVERYTHING and I'm having a bit of difficulty with it.  I also noticed that I have one brass brad and one silver brad.  Guess I was a little bit tired when I made this car, huh?  HAHAHAHA

Hope you all have a wonderful day.

Thanks for stopping by.

It's a Laugh Fest!!!

Hi Stampers!

I was in Gatlinburg, Tennessee for the second annual Stamp-a-rama with a bunch of very talented ladies in March.  We stamped our hearts out and laughed ourselves silly.  Ate some great food too.  Here are a couple of photos from that trip.

Between the seven of us, we had a stamping store!!!  The girls had some fabulous projects.  I'll share a few with you here.

This was one of Carol's cards.  It just doesn't do it justice how pretty it is in real life.

This is one of Beverly's creations.  This was so much fun creating the sunburst at the top.  I'm going to try this technique again soon.  Just cut a rectangle and then divide it diagonally, sponge your strips and adhere to the cardstock. 

I will share more later. I'll also share some of my cards we recently made at my last stamp class.  I'm now having them in my house, so if you are local to the Rock Hill, SC area, drop me a line and let me know you'd like to attend.  They are typically given on the 4th Saturday of the month.  May is going to be on the 2nd Saturday as I had a conflict on the 4th Saturday.

Thanks for stopping by!
