Day After Stamping!!

Good Morning Everyone!!! I couldn't wait to post the cards I made last night with my good friend Denise! She is my neice by marriage but I so consider her as a great friend. I could not wait to stamp in her new stamp studio. Wow it is so nice you got to go check out her blog and see pictures. It was so nice to stamp away from home and a little break from so many interuptions with my children! I got two challenges done and I cased one card from Cards Magazine. Hope you like all my creations. Thanks for visiting me today!!

Here is my first card. I made this for the weekly challenge over at I needed a birthday card today for a little boy so I wanted to use these cute little monsters from October Afternoon. Isn't he just too funny!!! I was inspired by the colors from the designer paper from October Afternoon. Hope you all like it.

Yeah... your cards are adorable. I wish I had some of the mojo you did last night. I'm still looking at the one card I tried last night and still not liking it much. I can't decide if I want to tear it apart and start again. yuck!

Awesome Crystal...these cards are fantastic...and lucky you to stamp in such an awesome space. I popped on over to your neice's blog and's like a whole entire studio. ah...someday! :)

Oh I love them all! How fun to be able to stamp with a friend! My DD and I have tried to stamp together but between bumping into eachother in the room I share with my grandkids when they are here... it's a small room and has all their toys and mine too... so between that and all the interruptions we usually do not get much actual stamping done! I love all these creations!
