Grateful and Glad!

Happy Saturday! I just spent 9 hours stamping at this month's Green Bay Scrapbooking Club's Crop and Stamp at St. Clare Hall. Whew! This scrapbooking club is quite fun and the day was full of great food, great company, and great stamping! I spent most of the day working on swaps and a few upcoming projects. At some point, I will finish those scrapbook pages from the past two years, but right now, I am having a ton of fun stamping! I am so lucky to live my life!

What did I finish? I got this swap ready to send off. This is the real swap that I will send for the baby swap. I recently posted a card I thought was right for it, but it turns out, I signed up to make thank-you cards, not invitations! Good thing I had some paper around this week while away from my stamp room!

Stamps: Wild About You, Define Your Life
Paper: Certainly Celery, Kraft, So Saffron, Bashful Blue
Ink: Certainly Celery, Bashful Blue, Sahara Sand
Accessories: Soft Subtle Brads, Stampin' Up! Backgrounds I Texturz, Big Shot, Scallop Circle Bigz Die, paper piercing tool, matte, and template.

I loved this sketch! I got the idea from the Diva Coffee Break Design Challenge this week:

After intense use, my Bashful Blue and Certainly Celery stamp pads need reinking, but I had them in Neenah, while I was at work in Shawano. Bummer. But, since they both had the same effect, I am going to pretend I wanted it that way! I also didn't have my stamp-a-ma-jig, so some of my sentiments on the swap were slightly off-kilter. Considering the week I had (everything was off-kilter), I think they turned out pretty well!

Happy Stamping (and Spring)!
