Chair-ished

Things have been fairly busy lately. I worked Monday & Tuesday, but had today day off, so I spent part of the day getting my house in order (vaccuuming, laundry, grocery shopping, baking chocolate chip pumpkin muffins, you know all that fun stuff...) and the other part getting ready for the crop I'm hosting this weekend at my church to raise money for my trip to the Congo. I'm expecting about 30 women, so it should be a really good time.

My friend, Susan, came down this afternoon and helped me prep for my card class and make lunchbox note dies for all the attendees. I'm sure I'll take some photos and post them soon....

In the meantime, here's a card I made about a month ago, but never got around to posting:


I used PTI cardstock (stamper's select white, spring rain, harvest gold), stamps (newsprint, on my couch & on my couch additions, half & half) and dies (half & half). The patterned paper is The Girl's Paperie.

Thanks for looking!

Yay--it's back. I've had the same issue with blogger before. I think I figured out what I was doing wrong. I am really loving this stamp set because of everything you are doing with it. Great layout. I've got something in mind that this layout would be perfect for!
