New Magnetic Platform

The new BFF of your Framelits and Edgelits! Exclusive magnetic platform to hold your Framelits and Edgelits in place when you cut.

Baby Card

Thank you to Kate Imus for this cool swap!

Tomorrow I will post the first of my Stamp Camp projects so check back on Wednesday morning.  Things are slow going but at least I know why I am dragging my heels.  Doc office called today and I am fighting strep AND mono.  Phew!  Once I get on meds for the mono I should start to feel more like stamping again.  

Happy stamping!

Hello Mosaic Madness Card

Here is my version of the card on page 121 of the new catalog.  It needs bling so I am considering adding rhinestones.  Hmmm...  I was contemplating this as a club project but decided to go with the My Friend card a few days ago.

My posting might be spotty for the next week or so because my sister and her family are here visiting now.  I only get to see her every two or three years because they live in a foreign country.
