It has been one of those weeks--or several weeks! At midnight, I finished the other card for my stamp camp today. I used several cards to make this one, so I don't know all of the names of the of the people I kind of CASEd from. It needs a little bling, but I couldn't decide what to use that didn't seem too much. If you have any suggestions, I would love to hear them.

If you haven't realized it yet, my style is more quick and simple. Because I'm a full time teacher, I don't have a lot of time to make my cards and scrapbook pages. My cards seem to be very simple--not nearly as elaborate as a lot of the cards I see on other blogs. Anyway, stamp camp is at 2:00 today so hopefully the girls will have fun!

More projects

As promised, here's the owl with the wings--thanks again, Jean, for helping me with this. The other is a tag I CASEd from the Idea Book and Catalog on page 155. My best friend, Amy Parker, and I are doing classes for our local recreation department starting in September. This is the tag we decided to make. Amy is making the box--she's really good at things like that. We have one more project but haven't decided on it exactly yet. Wish us luck!

I know how to make the wings!

Thanks to Jean from Stampin' Connection, I know how to make the wings on the owl--with the bird punch! How simple is that? I'll post the picture of the owl card with his wings when we get back from Pigeon Forge.

I finally got to stamp!

OK--the transition from first grade to kindergarten was a little more time consuming than I thought. I finally found time today to get into the stampin' room and create something--anything!

I came up with three cards that were all CASEd from someone else so let me make sure I give credit where credit is due. The cute snail card uses Bugs and Kisses and is a very simple version of one I saw by Julie Wadlinger. She used DSP on her shells and it was beautiful but I only had a little time so I used the markers to color each shell before stamping.

The other Bugs and Kisses card was designed by Denise Kasanda. I changed all of the colors on my card just experimenting with the new color coach. I love that tool!

My owl card was CASEd from Melanie Kiechle. My only problem is that I can't decide how to make the wings on the owl in the middle look like he's flying. If anyone has suggestions, please let me know--my cutting didn't quite look right.

Well, that's the post for today. We're off to the mountains in Tennessee for the week so hopefully next weekend I'll get those scrapbook pages I told you about posted as well. Thanks for looking!
