Stamps for sale!

I've been going through my stamps and sorting out the ones I can bear to part with. There has actually been a pile of Stampin' Up stamps sitting in my craft room for some time now, I've just never gotten around to listing them. That's me, the ultimate procrastinator! I'm trying to work on that...but let's get back to the matter at hand, rubbah for sale! I've also got these listed on the BST trade board at SCS, so if you're interested in one don't wait!

Most of these sets are already mounted and slightly used. Really, in all honesty, the ones that saw ink were only inked a few times. I really do need to use my stamps more! Some have not even been mounted yet. If you want to see pics of a certain set, let me know and I can get one taken or you can pop on over to SCS and see pics of the set in the gallery.

I will send via Priority mail. A Flat Rate envelope is $4.60 and usually holds one stamp set, a Flat Rate box is $8.95 (prices listed are for the U.S.). I will accept Paypal (preferred) and money orders. Your stamps will be sent out once payment is received. If you are outside the U.S. postage will be computed individually. I'm only mailing to the U.S. and Canada right now.

If you're interested in any, send me an email to let me know so I can set it aside for you. Thanks for looking!

Ok...I've been tagged multiple times by my blogging buddies and I've seriously slacked on posting! Forgive me, please! Let's see I have to share seven things about myself that you may not know...well here goes:

1. I've never been in a car accident...and praying that I never am!

2. I have never broken a bone...not one.

3. I got my Masters in Teaching and by the time I was done with the program and student teaching I figured out that I didn't want to teach in a classroom setting! I really believe that I will use what I learned in my Master's program to homeschool Bella and any others that come along.

4. I collect dolls and sew clothes with my mother. My mom has been collecting dolls since I was born and I grew up with them around and naturally got into it to.

5. I love getting pedicures...I would go every week if I could! But I limit it to mainly spring and summer time and even then its about every month or so.

6. I have a thing for Cherry Coke...Definitely need my caffeine!

7. My favorite color is pink! I love pink! Pink, pink, pink!!!

I'm finally posting some cards...can you believe it?!?! I'm amazed myself *hehehehe* It felt so good to actually take the time and create a card! Recently I've not been feeling my creative for card making. I know it's one of those things that will come back as I start to's just so hard to get it started!
Some of you will recognize these cards...they've already been sent and received! These colors have been floating around in my head for some time. I've been wanting to play with these pastel colors and actually see what they look like when they've been "put down" into a card. I'm pretty pleased with the results...simple, clean, fun. I think these colors remind me of a whimsical winter feel.

I've been really into Amuse images recently and these cards are made using their stamps. I did three different cards that all use the same images, cardstock and colors, but I felt like mixing it up a bit with each card so they are all a little different.

Card details:

Amuse images: Just sittin' here sentiment, Snow Angel

Marvy scalloped square punches in Giga & Mega

Pallette Noir ink, Copic markers, assorted ribbon, eyelet

To my PIF gals...

I owe you three *you know who you are :)* a big I'm sorry. Your goodie bags have been ready for some time now, but I've been missing packing tape!!! I know that should be no excuse, but I'm going to remedy it today. Packing tape is on my list for the store today! I will be getting them in the mail on Monday. Please forgive me!


How cool is this?!? The gals over at Queen Kat Bloggers have asked me to be a featured blogger! Big excitement!

I'm super honored that they've asked me to be a featured blogger, but can I share a little somethin' with you all? It kinda freaks me out a teeny bit....because I know that I havent' been doing the best job with keeping my blog up lately...especially in the realm on posting creations (well...that could also be due in large part to my lack of creating ANYTHING recently)...wait, I think I did take some pics of the paint cans I made for my aunt and cousin(well, I'm now calling her my cousin, she's really my cousin's SO *they've been together so long she might as well be my cousin!) Anyway, enough rambling...I'm going to try and be better about posting my creations...and actually creating! ***hehehe***
