{No camera---no pictures!}

Well---I'm sure most of my (two) loyal readers have just about given up on me, but DON'T!!!! I haven't quit stamping---I've just quit photographing! Hannah is in Africa and even after the thorough cleaning of her room, I couldn't find her camera. SOOOOO, she has my camera in Africa---I mean, really, you can't take a trip to another continent and NOT take a camera. So, I promise to be back to my regular posting (whatever that means) as soon as she returns! I do have a picture of a few things I've been working on since I've been out of school.

I made thank you cards for the numerous gifts I received at the end of the school year--and for various other cards I needed to send. I cased this idea from this post by Lauren Meader---these were so fast. I made about 13 cards in less than 2 hours---that's really fast for me! I wanted to make them just like hers, but I decided I'd use the stars from the Star Prints set---anyway, I did them in four colors and used some and brown bitty stars pattterned paper. I just cut the paper into 1 1/2 inch strips and then cut the "wave" free hand. I stamped the stars with Palette Noir ink or PTI Dark Chocolate---added a ribbon and button embellishment and was done.
Here it is in Raspberry Fizz

And in New Leaf

And Melon Berry
And finally Hibiscus Burst

Well, one final thing before I go---you know the 462 times you have entered a comment to win some blog candy? Well, I actually won some---and some REALLY COOL CANDY, too!

I won this from Cosmo Cricket! I love their paper lines--and for you sewing types out there, they have fabric, too! SO pretty! It's TWO Double stacks of their paper---the first pack includes Girl Friday and Everafter. The second pack includes Snorkel & Lil'Man. These packs include the entire paper line (two of them) in one 12x12 pack! Ahhhhh---I can't wait to get into these! What a treat for Mr. Brown to drive up and deliver such goodness---and NO MONEY LEFT MY WALLET! Even better!

Well, that's all for now---I can't wait to get some pictures of some of the other things I've been working on---including 300 tags for my neice's wedding favors---yep---I got those in the mail today---so, I have been busy, just camera-less! Many hugs and thanks for looking!

Wowza, you have been busy!! I am so jealous--that paper is divine! Hope your DD gets back from Africa just fine---my niece leaves for an African trip on a Mercy Ship on the 20th!
