I just wanted to share a picture of the Door County Half Marathon with everyone. It was a perfect day for a lot of running. Door County did a great job at putting on the half!

May Card Club

There are few ladies who I know that enjoy staming as much as me. Unfortunately, we all live in various cities and states. Since we are unable to get together for a card club, we used these templates that I got from the blog Clean&Simple. I love this blog and all off its layouts. I sent out these two templates out as a guide and all of the ladies in the club were challenged to make cards using these templates. Below are all the great cards created by the card club. Hope you all enjoy. Happy Saturday

My Cards

Here are my cards for this month's card club! Enjoy.

Jodi's Cards

Wow! These are good. And I am not just saying this because she's my mother in law :) I love the first card with all of its added punches. Those punches really give it a lot of "character." The "wish big" card also has some great dimension to it. You really out did yourself Jodi! Way to go!

Judie's Cards

Here's Judie! Love the color combos in Judie's "find joy" card and the lady bug (I think its a lady bug) is the perfect accent. The Tart & Tangy set was a big success this round. Hmm. I might have to get this set. Summer is almost here and it is such a cute set.

Melanie's Cards

Melanie is involved in the arts. I don't know all the details, but for awhile now she has been passing on some great ideas to Amy who would in turn send them to me and Jodi. I am already curious as to how she did this background technique. I love the black gingham ribbon as well.

Laura's Cards

Above are Laura's cards. I am loving the the little sparkly brad and I think I must have those now. You can never have enough "thank you" cards. Laura's baby girl card is super sweet, too.

Amy's Cards

Here are Amy's cards. I love the Tart and Tangy stamp set. I also love how easy these cards look to make.
Also, for those of you who do no know, Amy is the "culprit" who started my obsession with stamping. I have loved every second of it. Thanks Amy! You are always very inspiring.

My Very First Stampin "party"

So I have been stampin' for quite some time now and I am sure that all of friends were sick of hearing about my obessession. Well, finally, I had four ladies over yesterday and I think some may have really enjoyed it. Here's a look at the cards that were made. Just an FYI, I know I cased some of these and then changed them up a bit. Some were from my upline Elizabeth which she cased from somewhere else. Her link is here. I'll keep better track next time but I have been a bit busy lately! I hope everyone is having a great day!
