Stamp Camp Card Exchange #1




I was invited to attend a monthly Stamp Camp/class this past Thursday and I went in spite of being sick. It's easier to do something you want to do when you feel icky than it is to sit at home and be miserable. Tissues, Sudafed, and tool bag in hand, and armed with my GPS, I went to someone's house I didn't even know, to hang out with people I had never even met before. I have to say, I had a blast, and it always amazes me how welcoming, generous, and wonderful crafters truly are. Where else can you walk into a room of strangers and feel like you've made instant friends?! These ladies are so talented and friendly, and we made two greeting cards using Stampin' Up supplies. They do a monthly Greeting Card swap which I was unprepared to participate in, but they were kind enough to let me take a few home with me anyhow and they were all lovely! I came home inspired and refreshed (though still very sick), and I finally got to sit down last night after finishing my paper to make some cards for next month's exchange.
I created fourteen Owl Thank You's using CTMH paper, ink, and liquid glass, a Studio G owl stamp, K & Co. diecuts, yellow ric-rac, and Offray ribbon flowers. I hope the girls will enjoy them, and it will feel good to contribute to their creative circle! I can't wait to visit with them again!

  2. These cards are gorgeous Tabitha. You did a great job on them.

    Hope you are feeling better. Seems to me you are due some good "up" time as you've had a couple of very stressful weeks.
