Outside the Box...

Hello, my friends,

It's so good to be back with you.  I feel like I've been moving at the speed of light and it's just time to breathe.  Last week was my first week back at school and I love my new students.  There are six boys in our class and they are all really cool kids.  I'm always nervous about everyone settling in but I have to admit that this class was raring to go on day one.  After taking a year off and working in reading and math resource, I'm back in Special Ed and working with kids with autism again.  I'm praying for a GREAT, productive year.  :-)

Yesterday I had my monthly "Just Cards" class here and we had a blast.  The girls got to make five different cards and I'll be sharing them with you this week here on my blog.  I really love this first card.  It's an "out of the box" card for me.  You know how I am....the more layers, embossing, glitz and embellishments...the better.  LOL  Well, check out this card....I promise you....I really created it! 

See what I mean?  I really am pleased with it.  I think it works great as a masculine card too.  Those are more of a challenge for me.  I'm way more comfortable with "girly" and "froo froo".

I used the "Wetlands" stamp set.  It's really a great set and this was one of the newest sets I'd ordered so it was the first time it was inked up.  Trust me....it will get a LOT more ink time in my studio.  Here are all of the images included in the set.

"Wetlands"  Wood Mount: #126695  Clear Mount #126697

It's so versatile and just an all around great set to have on hand.  If you'd like to get a set of your very own, just head over to my Online Store by clicking the shopping cart above.  Remember...You can shop 24/7....shop in your pjs....the lights are always on and you never have to wait in line.

I'll be creating this week for my "September Christmas Stamp A Stack" next Saturday.  I love having them and I can't wait to share my new ideas with the ladies.

Well, I'm off to bed.  Lots to do tomorrow and I absolutely need my "beauty" sleep.

Wishing you a magical day ahead,
