So enough about potatoes… I did get a little shopping done and a little stamping. In case you were wondering I did go back and add stickles to the big flower in the Fabulous Flower card and I also went back and sponged the background on that True Friend card I posted last. I'm sure you were all loosing sleep about that.
I'm trying to carefully pick cards to show that I haven't sent to my Secret Sister. I once figured out my SS by seeing a card she had sent to me on her blog. So now I am extra careful.
I think this one is safe...
This card uses the Double Line Doodles stamp set from SU! The colors are Pixie Pink, Almost Amethyst, Basic Black, and Whisper White. I used my Marvy scalloped square punch and some ribbon from one of the retired Ribbon Originals sets.

This is a card I made using some My Mind's Eye paper from their Tres Jolie line, I think. I also think the paper is called Cest La Vie, but I could have those two mixed up.
The colors go so nicely with SU's Soft Sky, Certainly Celery, Ruby Red and Apricot Appeal or So Saffron would probably work too. I think I am going to add some sponging or something to the cardbase... It just needs something else.

I used Groovy Guava, Purely Pomegranate, Basic Black, and Whisper White. The flowers are from Fabulous Flowers and the Linen background was used on the cardbase. I added a clear rhinestone brad to the middle of the center flower. It is popped up with a dimensional. The ribbons are the black gingham and the Purely Pomegrante stitched.
I think I will go back and add some stickles to my big flower. I want it to sparkle some more.
I hate these days. I have a hard time taking pictures in the house. I turned up all the lights in the living room and tried some with the flash and some without the flash. Nothing works like outside natural light. Oh well.
Only a couple more days until Thanksgiving. My in-laws are coming over this year. I've never cooked a turkey before and we have a 23.78 pound butterball thawing. Argh! I think we are going to have 20 people total, 7 of them kids. We live in a 1100 sq-ft house with no dining room. Good thing the living room is big and we can rearrange the furniture to fit a few banquet tables and chairs.

Here are the cards from the last stamp camp my upline and I did. For my set the participants got to choose if they wanted to use the In the Spotlight stamp set or the Snowflake Spot. The colors were Not Quite Navy, Blue Bayou, Soft Sky, Naturals White, and Whisper White. My upline used the same template, but different colors and a different stamp set. We found a great template on SCS that had the OSW sheet as well as the layers that you just printed out on the appropriate cardstock. It was a lot of fun.
I got quite a bit of stamping done on Friday while the kids and hubby were gone and at night at my pal Crystal's house. I just need to take pictures of that.
Here are some funny kid stories for you. First was Madison last week while we are waiting for the bus. She told me to watch for the bus and she would keep an eye out in the other direction for the neighbor girl Adriana. Then she says "Adriana's a whore". And I said WHAT!?!" and she said it again. I went on to tell her she should never say something like that and where did you hear this. She says "ya know the pirates say that" and I say "I don't care what the pirates say, you should never say that word. It is a bad word." Then she says "ya know like A whore matey!" and I said "AHOY! aHOY!!! HOY!!! HOY!!! HOY!!!" Phew!
This morning Carter and Morgan are in bed with us when I went to get in the shower. That is nothing new. They both end up there at some point during the night. After my shower I was in the kitchen making Carter's lunch and Corey comes in and brings me Morgan. He said she fell out of bed. She wasn't crying or anything. And she was walking around ok and smiling. But after Carter got up I told him that he needed to watch his sister if they are both in the bed. He said "I was watching her. I watched her fall out of the bed." Then I told him that if it happens again he should try and stop her. He said "I did try. I told her not fall out of the bed, but she didn't listen." **sigh** Ya gotta love 'em.

And here are my drunk sheep revisted. I cut apart my sentiment and added it to the side. Now I feel better about these.

I'm not quite sure where I was going with this. If I had more room I would've added the "one martini, two martini, three martini, floor" sentiment. Maybe I can fit it around the side. I will look at this one again.
The papers are SU! Brocade Blue, Purely Pomegranate, Whisper White. I used some Wild Wassabi stitched ribbon and some Brocade Blue brads also from SU. The sheep and the think drink stamp are from The Cat's Pajamas and the oval is the A Muse skinny oval. It is stamped in Wild Wassabi. I colored the drink in with my Rose Red SU! marker. It is pretty close to the Pomegranate. I added a little A Muse bling to the drink and I used some liquid applique that I heated to make fluffy on the sheep.
Well, I am pretty much out of projects to share so I need to get busy stamping while I am off tomorrow. Please, please, please don't let any of the kids be sick. I want them all to go to daycare/school so I can have a day of peace to myself. Even if something happens I still get to do some stamping at Crystal's tomorrow night. But I usually do more talking than stamping when I am at Crystal's.

I have been busy lately. Not stamping, but helping to organize a SCS stamping get together in Michigan. I've been to two others of these and we were due for another so a couple gals and myself took on the planning. We have had an overwhelming response. Over 50 registrations. Too bad we can't fit more, but we are going to be tight as it is. Next time we need to get a convention center or something!
Tomorrow I will try to show you an ATC I made for a swap that uses The Cat's Pajamas stamps. I just got a message from them about an upcoming sale. I don't think it starts until the 16th so I will post the details along with my ATC tomorrow.
And now for the card. This is the last one I have a picture of so I have to get busy again or I won't have anything to post. I'm off work on Friday and plan to be stamping all day. Hopefully, the kids will all be healthy and I will be able to do that. Knock on wood.
Sorry this picture is a little out of focus. Not sure what happened. Anyways, this is the Artfully Asian set by SU! I also used the Sanded background in Vanilla craft ink on the Chocolate Chip. The other colors are Rose Red, Brocade Blue and I added some Always Artichoke.

This card uses the Polka Dot & Paisley stamp set from SU and the colors are Chocolate Chip, Tempting Turquoise and Certainly Celery. The ribbon was from one of the ribbon origionals packs. I think it was called flirty and was in the Winter mini last year.
