The SUO challenge this week is for TREATS…..so I made this weeny little shopping bag full of "treats".  :) I used a lot of discontinued items on this little creation, like ribbon, dsp, and corduroy button. :) Speaking of treats, I just got home from celebrating my 41st wedding anniversary with my husband where we surely ate way too much. :) We ended our meal with a piece of caramel sugar crusted cheesecake, can you please tell me, "WHY??"  Oh my, it's gonna be a long night.  It was really yummy but my tummy is now asking, "Why, why, WHY??"  And all I can say is, I promise I will never do it again. haha.  It's so dang easy to overeat.  Well, 41 years of marriage to your high school sweetheart is something to overeat about, right?? In this day and age?? Right??? :) Okay, off to bed where I shall toss and turn from over eating.  Until next time, Karen

The SUO Challenge this week was "Out in the Woods" and right away, I thought night time. :) So I used this GREAT new photopolymer stamp set called "White Christmas" - all these cute little stamps to put together in different ways….so fun!!  I had my annual Eastern Ohio ladies weekend this past weekend.  That's where some of my first stamping customers join me for a weekend of stamping, eating, laughing, stamping, listening to music, stamping, etc, and did I mention stamping??  This week I was joined by only 3(Gloria, Joann, and Margo) of them for various reasons.  But we still had a stamping good time and made a pile of cards. :) It was so fun to show them the Blendabilities and see how happy they were with their coloring efforts.  Well as you can see there wasn't much coloring that went in to THIS one, but it still took a while to make. :) Not my usual flower card - but fun to stamp all the same! :)  We decided that we wouldn't ever do this for our mass produced Christmas card, just at the thought of cutting out all those weeny cardinals.  Holy Shnikes that is SMALL.  Okay well I am in rambling mode again so I will leave you with my woodsy creation here and say until next time, happy stamping!!
