Well our little SULD group is so blessed to have Debbie as our leader. Debbie recently got back from Founder's Circle and shared with us what she learned and experienced. You can read more about that on her upcoming blog that she is working on. It is set to debut soon.
She shared with us a fabulous project that she made at Founder's with a new stamp set that will be available in the Spring/Summer 2009 Idea Book & Catalog. Then she had a smaller version of that very same Make-n-Take for us to create using the new stamp set which I LOVE! Here is the cool book we made, featuring the Simple Friendship stamp set (available in 2009)!!
Hello friends! I just couldn't hardly wait to share these awesome cards with you from the swap that I participate in every month with some of my favorite local, and not so local - Kari - Dragonfly Impressions) demonstrators. What a treat is was to have Kari with us for our SULD monthly meeting - all the way from California! I have chatted with her many times online and stalk her blog regularly. We had a great time. She and her SIL - Gaylen - The Daily Ink (another super talented demo) were sportin' their new SU! Aprons! I would totally love one of these for Christmas! *hint, hint* (Mom, if you're reading).. Now, Michelle hosted this swap and here were the requirements: Fall Colors/Theme, Use 1 or more SU! punches, SUO, and current.
Without further adieu.. here are the fabulous cards, I am sure you will be inspired!

I just love this image. My good friend Tabby sent it to me a while back, and I have been just about to have a fit to use it on a card. I made this for the DDC... Charlene challenged us to make a card with color blocking. I have never done this type of card before, but after checking out the others, I think this is sorta what it is supposed to look like. I wasn't sure if I was to use a solid or a pattern, and since I love these patterned papers and bought them a YEAR ago for scrapbooking (yeah.. I'm waaaaay behind)... I decided to cut it up and use it on a card. I think it turned out well.
Stamps: Best Fiends
Paper: basic black, white, various dp
Ink: stazon, kiwi kiss, basic black
Accessories: aqua painter, SU! markers, silver bling for Franks bolts, black sharpie pen (my new fave pen)
I finally made some time to stamp..and I am so glad! I was afraid I had forgotten how to complete a challenge, I've been away soooo long - LOL! Anyway.. this card is for the Dare Challenge Group. Michelle challenged us to use a stamp or really anything that we had not used in a long time. I decided to mount this one. I've had it for while now and have never used it because 1. the stamp is larger that a regular card size (see it sticking up over the top) and 2. I never took the time to mount it to the wood block (lazy). So.. I really like this stamp.. just had to figure out exactly how to make it into a pretty card.This is also for the Color Challenge from last week or some time.. can't remember. I've been jotting them down on my "to do" list. Thank for looking! ... and cyber hugs to all my stamping buddies, I've been missing hanging out with you guys!
Stamps: from the garden
Paper: gp white, basic gray
Ink: craft black, ridinghood red
Accessories: clear ep, SU! markers, aqua painter, white signo pen
