Wow, I realized yesterday when chatting with my monthly stamp club that it has been well over a month since I posted anything on my blog. Yikes! I can only give the excuse that I am super busy getting ready for baby (due June 26) and stamping, stamping, stamping. So, here are a few recent projects.

These first two cards are ones I submitted to Stampin' Up! for their April contest category "Round and Round We Go" - projects with a circle theme. Although I thought they were pretty darn good, especially for me, they did not win. Ahh well...try and try again.

One interesting thing to note is that the Thanks So Much card was 100% inspired by my new guest bathroom shower curtain. If I get around to it, I'll try to post a picture... it looks exactly like it!

This Balmy Breezes birthday card was created for an inspiration challenge on SCS. The source of inspiration was actually a purse. I love how it turned out.

The Thinking of You card was done for April's VSN (Virtual Stamp Night) on SCS. This particular challenge asked us to use the wax paper resist technique. What a cool technique this is. My card earned a spot in that month's VSN gallery! (Such an honor!!)

The next picture is a group picture of my stamp club's altered lunch tins that we completed in April. They chose 2 coordinating pieces of designer paper which I cut before the class. Then they came and blinged them all up. I think they did an excellent job!

Lastly, the first of these 2 cards is one I designed for my stamp club to create this month. One of my gals, Nancy, created the second card. I love her swirly striped look so much more than my muddled spongy look. Neat how 2 people can produce two entirely different projects using the exact same materials. Didn't she do a beautiful job!?! I have such a talented group of friends.
