It's been too long since my last post. I've been too busy. Christmas break has begun and I did a ton of cardmaking today. I got this crazy idea to make up some cards for my aunts' for Christmas. Just three aunts, but then I had to add in my Grandma and two girl cousins and my cousin's list quickly grew to 8. After more than 10 hours of creating....yes more than 10, I designed and created 16 different cards. Each person will receive 4 cards (2 of each design). Originally, I planned on giving them 6 cards each, but my hubby talked me into keeping one of each card for myself to put in my portfolio. I also created a box for each set of cards and to my horror realized that I made the boxes to fit the cards and not the I just tied the envies to the bottom of each box. I'm soooo happy with how they all turned out. I hope I still have some creative juices left. :)

The cards shown above are just two of the sets I created. I'll share the rest of them when I have some more time. The pink paper on the first two cards is paper that I found in the scrapbook isle at Target. They have some really pretty paper. I love groupings of three- I like how the card on the right turned out. The bottom right card (with the bird) was watercolored by my hubby. He's an artist and I turn to him for color choices. I just got my 'bird' stamp set in the mail the other day. It's something new for me...birds, woodsy stuff.

I'm so excited! I'm hosting a Christmas Card workshop next week and I just finished up with my card ideas and put them into kits. I've had 13 rsvp's so'll be a full house! I announced it as a free workshop and that I would provide food and drinks. My new year's resolution is to go further with my stamp business. I've been a TAC demo for a little over a year and have done a few workshops, but I'm ready to step it up a little.

The rubber stamps that I used for these cards are from The Angel Company (TAC). My favorite one is the Joy card. I've had the circle alphabet for awhile and just hadn't used it.

I've been looking through blogs at Splitcoastbloggers and have found some amazing artwork. I've been curious about blogs and have decided to start my own. It's plain for now because I don't know what I'm doing yet.
I'm a demonstrator for TAC and I'm putting together a Stamp Camp. I'll be using the Rustic Chic8x8 paper pad. This is one of the cards we'll be doing. It's simple, but I like it.
