November and Stampin'up Cards

Hi there everyone, how did your day go today? Went to church this morning, we left early today, we usually hang around to talk to people. So we got home and I made quick grilled cheese, not like the ones I made the other day. Just plain grilled cheeses with ham and sliced, grilled potatoes...that sure did hit the spot. Stamp Camp was at 1:00.  

Today was daylight savings, of which I totally forgot about until 11pm last the time all the clocks were changed it was 11:30, I think we have WAY too many clocks in this house. Anyways, while JP was eating his lunch, he mentioned, "didn't you say you had a meeting at 1:00 pm???" Yes, I said. Well, it's 1:00!!! Oh, those clocks didn't get changed, it's still 12:00.....whew!!!!!! Yeah, way too many clocks in this house.
So I got to Kathy's house on time, actually early and started into making this lovely fall card. A little bit of coloring to this one. I guess that's the newest thing now a days....coloring books for adults...guess I shall have to get a coloring book. Sometimes it is just plain fun to sit down and color a stamped image...very relaxing. Four other ladies showed up, so we were all busy at the different stations, making these cards.
This was a pretty card to make, I bought this set....the cut outs and the stamp set, bundled together and 15% off....maybe this will be one of my Christmas cards for this year. The background is sponged ink, can you see the stars and moon? Then the background was put in an embossing folder and ran through the Hot Shot to make the snow effect. The snowflakes were sanded down to look snowy. This sure made a nice card...I like.
This was a neat card....made to look like a dressing screen. I have this stamp set, so I guess I could make of few of these cards some time. Just would have to get the dimensions for the card stock and the punches.
Now this was a fun hunk of cheese to make. It is an actual die cut that was run through the Big Shot with 2 pieces of card stock. The parts of the cheese were scored and bent to shape the cheese. Dabbed the card stock to look like swiss cheese, I guess. Then embellished with the Green Bay Packer logo, ribbon, sequins and the red card stock. Turned out really fun. I think it shall be my decoration by the computer.

So the Packers are playing right far, not so good, the score is 7-0 Broncos winning. Come on Packers....lets GO WIN this game!!!! OH, oh Broncos just scored again...NOT GOOD!!

As soon as I finish this post, I shall go downstairs and make some cards. FINALLY got my mojo back to making cards again. Sure took time to get it back. Guess the "hernia" took a lot out of me, not realizing it.

Well, you all have a good evening and keep looking up.
Cheers ~ Louise

Love those cards, Louise. I keep the ones you have sent me with the appropriate "season". Right now I have a turkey one out and I do believe you sent me the pilgrim boy that covers the Hershey bar, too. So much fun and you do a beautiful job. Glad you are back to card making and have your mojo back.
I turned the game off last night- it made me too anxious to watch anymore. I am a bad fan, I guess. lol
Hope you have a great week. xo Diana

I just love that Snow Scene card - and yes, I can easily see the moon and stars.

You just inspired me to get back to making my own "things" - I've been busy with so much but I so enjoy making my own things - it's time - thanks, friend!
