Whoosh ....

I am just whoosing by very quickly to say hi. We have had our windows replaced and now we have to tackle the decorating ... a mammoth task leaving little time for crafting. There is always something eating into play time isn't there .... sigh.

Anyway, I hosted my first Stampin' Up! party during the week and it was a great success. Go figure. My local friends aren't crafters, but the lure of rubber and ink soon worked their magic and everyone bought at least a little something, leaving me with a lovely hostess gift, some free product and also some sale-a-bration stamps. Woo Hoo.
I am making it my mission to use these stamps as ... I feel very guilty saying this .... last years sale-a-bration set has only been used once in the entire year. I shall do better.

I will be doing some classes with them too and if that goes well I might start running classes again.

On to another manufacturer though, Waltzing Mouse Stamps. I have gushed about Waltzing Mouse before - LOVE their stamps! I used one of Claire's beautiful bloom designs to make some Mother's day cards for Craft Stamper this month. Love this set, which is strange as I am not usually drawn to realistic floral images, but this one grabbed me and is perfect for Mother's day and Mums in general. Not to mention fabulous for Copics, I am so getting into my copics.

I made three cards for the magazine using acetate and this one is extra. You can see a much better and more professional photo on the Craft Stamper website. I am not the best photographer, especially when acetate is involved.

Oh, by the way, I was just on the Waltzing Mouse blog and see that Claire is releasing a bunch of new stamp sets at the beginning of March and from the sneek peaks it looks like we might be visiting the wild west. Yee ha. Sounds cool.
