Welcome to my wacky world. I call it that because sometimes I feel like I am off in my own world. As the saying on one of my stamps and
my fridge magnet says "I know i'm in my own little world. It's OK they know me here."

Here you will learn a little about me and my life. Like my marriages, my critters and my hobbies. I love taking photos. so along the way there might be alot of photos.My life is full of ups and downs, more often the downs. I just try to keep on a happy face. Doesnt always work when you suffer from anxiety and depression. But I still always manage to keep my Bubbly little personality.

SU Stamp Club 1-29-2011

So today i went to my very first Stampin Up Stamp Club meeting.  Its a group of us gals that meet once a month all year long and we each take a turn as hostess for the month.  i unfortunately have to wait til August for my hostess month.  But thats good thats my sisters birthday month so maybe i can talk her into tagging along to do a lil birthday shopping for herself.  LOL! 
The only requirement for this group is to spend $15 a month.  heck i can do that even if i just get a few packs a paper.  Well i went overboard today as usuall.  Not only did i bring home donuts from the bakery that we meet at.  I ordered a pack of Rich Razzleberry, and Pear Pizzaz paper plus the eastern blossom stamp set and the punch that cordinates with that set.  and since my order had reached $50 i had a hard time choosing between Tree Trimmings, Forest Friends or the Live Laugh Love stamp  set from the sale a bration book.  I finally had decided on the live laugh love set because i dont have very many decent universal sentiments and i dont have alot of use for the forest friends set (other than the forest friends swaps on SCS, or kid cards) and well the tree trimmings would sit around for ages before i got to use it, unless i did a head start on christmas cards with it.  LOL!  who knows maybe next month i'll have enough to get another free stamp set.

well okay onto what i made today.  One of the items was a cute tag to put on a treat bag, we filled the bag with a ginormous peanut butter ball, however the hubby got to it and ate it before i could get a picture.  LOL!  i ate mine while crafting since the bag only fit 1 and we were able to have 2.  :)  We used the stamp set Eat Chocolate. 

Then we also made a vintage type card.  I like the colors used Rich Razzleberry and Pear Pizzaz.  i think im going to have to order the In color markers (save money and still have to colors to stamp with.) ;)  Aslo the DP used is the lightweight paper out of the SU book.  kinda like vintage encyclopedias and such.  We did a watercolor to color the image in using the reinkers.  I think i'll stick to my watercolor crayons as i am better with them.  Im not to much into the Vintage style but these turned out pretty decent.
